Farewell to Stephen Hawking

Paying tribute to the wonderful Stephen Hawking with a few of his ‘inspirational quotes’. Thanks to Ana for reminding us about these.

“Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious, and however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

“My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit, as well as physically.”

 

 

 

 

Is self employment: the better option for people with disabilites?

Thanks to Chris and our Careers Team @ BU for this relevant website & blog about the employment progress made with the increasing number of people with disabilities setting up their own businesses and entering self-employment.

Self-employment offers obvious advantages for many people with disabilities. This is becoming increasingly self-evident as the number of disabled entrepreneurs increases and their achievements are becoming more widely known and celebrated.
