About this site

This website is dedicated to Barbara De Ruiz, a fine woman from Homosassa, Florida with a disability who, with help of Florida’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), set up a successful art business. Additionally, there are also several posts on other exceptional individuals who stretched their potential to achieve remarkable results. We’ll also provide advice as to how to set up a business successfully and what to keep in mind, and we highlight some remarkable designs that impressed the world of art, sport, and automotive.

Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is proactively involved in helping individuals with a disability find or retain positions in businesses. The organization has set up the website FLJobConnections.com, a platform where businesses (at no charge) have the chance to post job vacancies or find suitable persons for a position. During 2016, Vocational Rehabilitation helped over seven thousand Florida residents with a disability find suitable employment or keep their jobs.
