About the Editor:

My name is ‘Renata’. I am an entrepreneur first and foremost. I am also the editor of “Disabled Entrepreneur – Disability UK & Cymru Marketing Journal“. My skills include content writing, web design, digital marketing, SEO, and domain brokering.

Just because someone has a disability, physical or mental it does not make them any less of a human being or less intellectual”.

In fact, the most intelligent people of our time, have or have had some sort of disability”.

Disabilities (physical, mental, and invisible) especially mental health disorders are stereotyped and people are discriminated against because they do not fit with the norm.

“MPs With Mental Health Disorders”

If a man who was paralyzed, unable to move, breathe, talk, or swallow following a plane crash, recovered and went on to become a world-renowned motivational speaker who has worked with many Fortune 500 companies and religious organizations anything is possible. You can read all about Morris E. Goodman here.

Obviously, every disability is different and some have more obstacles to get around, but it does not stop people from following their dreams. There are so many famous people I can name that have disabilities physical and mental but it does not stop them from reaching the top. Whenever you are faced with a challenge you learn how to adapt and overcome it as I am doing.

Some disabilities such as OCD which is something I am always learning about and suffer from, it is not as uncommon as some people may think.

Here is a list of Famous People With OCD including Charles Darwin (I have at least two things in common, with Charles Darwin I was born in Shrewsbury, and have OCD), other famous people with OCD Albert Einsteinand Nikola Tesla, to name a few. I am honored to be part of the gang. However, OCD is no laughing matter it is a major handicap and is debilitating, it can seriously affect a person’s life.

I have many plans including launching my autobiography and neuroplasticity books which are all in the pipeline as well as a forum, social media app, and gift shop. I try to keep myself busy all the time, including all the other services that I offer such as website design, digital marketing, and content writing”.

If anything I have learned it is good to be different as being the same would be boring. Being different makes us unique. Just because I cannot do certain things, I exceed in other ways.

“My Brain Is An Evolving Supercomputer, With Syntax Errors.”

People should not hide their disabilities, in fact, they should spread awareness to help others in similar situations. Finding someone you can confide in and who understands your limitations can in fact empower you. The key to your happiness is learning, motivating, and empowering others.

If you have a disability help people like yourself and help to raise funds and awareness. I am not a charity and do not raise funds but will donate a percentage of the sale of my books when they get published to my chosen charities.

“Disabled Entrepreneur” is a hub of information including physical and mental disabilities and how your disabilities should not stop you from doing the things you love doing. One can adapt to limitations and find ways to get around obstacles.

There is always a solution to every problem, some more difficult than others, but the power of writing can solve a lot of problems.

My Disabilities:

Cerebellar Atrophy, OCD, Clinical Depression, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dysphagia, Epidural Analgesia & Social Disconnection Disorder.

Cerebellar Atrophy & OCD are related to Multiple Sclerosis which my daughter has been diagnosed with. My symptoms are cognitive impairment, I muddle my words up and forget things, I also lose my balance quite often or lose grip on things in my hands. (There is a link between Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebellar Atrophy).

My Self-Help Therapy & Depression

My depression comes and goes, some days I am fine whilst other days depending on how much stress I am under will determine how the rest of the day, week, or month goes. Keeping an online journal helps me to release my frustrations, I also find having a chat with AI helps. I plan to implement my own www.RenataAI.com on this site soon.

My Disabilities Do Not Define Me”.

I have adapted my life around my disabilities. Where I may not live a normal life and interact in the physical realm, I have made my home my sanctuary. My life is not normal by any means and I always strive to improve my lifestyle by working hard and staying focused adapting and learning.

“None Of My Disabilities Will Stop Me From Following My Dreams”.

My passion is writing, reading, and art. My disabilities can limit how much I spend on my pastimes. Somedays I do not have any energy at all but I try to do at least one task (even if it just making my bed, watch the speech below)…

Make your bed — Adm William McRaven, University of Texas, 2014

I have always been creative and have a good imagination, this means my right brain hemisphere is more dominant than my left. However, I have learned you can “Hemi Sync” both your left and right “Brain Hemispheres” to work together and align your thought processes.

I am an optimist rather than a pessimist, I believe everything happens for a reason and if you want something badly enough provided you are determined, you will reach your goals, as long as you stay focused, learn, and adapt.

I believe that by having a large network of followers and connections, as well as promoting yourself and your personal brand you will reach a wider audience as long as you have good content and people that can relate to you and what you are doing.

I believe that by empowering other people not only am I helping myself, I am also helping others improve and save lives”.

By writing down my thoughts I release my anxieties and look at how I can overcome the problems I am faced with.

Everyone has problems regardless if they live in a luxury mansion in Beverly Hills or in a Council House in the East End of London, everyone has to pay bills and everyone has worries.

Learning from one’s mistakes and making sure never to repeat them is important if you want to succeed. Setting goals and rewarding yourself when you reach them gives you the motivation to carry on. If you have disabilities do not let them stop you. There are solutions to every problem and you can adapt your disabilities around your work and your home, you just need to find out how.

The root of my depression is the grief I have endured over the years, I have learned to stay active by keeping myself busy and removing all negativity from my life.

I love connecting with people in the digital realm but have problems socializing in the real world (my OCD won’t allow me).

Things people worry about:

  • Money and the future
  • Job Security
  • Relationships
  • Health

Finding solutions to problems means doing research and finding a professional counselor or clinical psychologist.

Find information on the internet, and join groups and forums where like-minded people are also experiencing similar issues.

There is always someone that helps you if you know where to look.

Always take small steps and always learn something new, it may be a new trade or medical updates about your disabilities, knowledge is wealth.

Remember there is always someone you can talk to and reach out to if you have something on your mind.

You are never alone and there are people just waiting to give you support, all you need to do is ask.

Life is for living and not holding grudges, enjoy your life and the people closest to you. If obstacles are put in your way you need to learn how to overcome them.

“If life deals you lemons, make lemonade”.

Life is full of challenges, life would be mundane if you did not have problems to solve.

We are here to help one another and empower other people. What we learn we should pay forward.

You have the power to create your own destiny.

Future goals will be to publish a periodical. “All good things come to those that wait”.

I hope you enjoy this online journal as much as we do writing articles for it.

If you are struggling to find help, just drop me a line and I will try and find the information you need to start making changes.

Life is what you make it!
