Webinar Spotlight: New England Business Associates!

Apr 17, 2015

Join us on April 22, 2015, for a national WISE webinar: Working for Yourself with Ticket to Work!  
The national WISE webinar will present information about Social Security programs and rules that may apply to you, including information about Ticket to Work and self-employment opportunities, tips and tools.

Our presenter for this webinar represents an Employment Network (EN): New England Business Associates (NEBA). Some ENs can work with you to discuss self-employment and Ticket to Work.

Self-employment is a way for people with disabilities to develop income and be self-supporting. Self-employment may provide the flexibility needed to manage your disability while generating an income. The NEBA program is free to qualified individuals through the Social Security Administration's Ticket to Work program. Other individuals can participate in the business development program with a modest fee or as a Vocational Rehab referral.

Colleen Moynihan, the director of NEBA's Business Development Center (BDC), will be presenting on the April 22 WISE webinar. The BDC provides an innovative approach to assisting people with disabilities and/or employment barriers in starting their own business. Participants receive the necessary entrepreneurial training to write a valid business plan and ongoing business implementation support once the plan is completed.

Colleen assists people in the planning and implementation of their business concepts. Colleen has more than 25 years of experience as an executive in marketing and strategic planning, and has served on national industry boards as an industry advisor on federal regulation and legislation. As Executive Director of The Center for Partnership Studies, Colleen was a voting participant of the United Nations World Congress for Children. She holds a Master of Education degree from Springfield College.
