What you need to start an advocacy service
We get lots of questions from folks interested in starting a disability advocacy service. One of the most common questions is “what does it take to get started”. You’ll be happy to know that one of the most outstanding aspects of the advocacy business is its low entry price.
The least expensive approach to starting a new business is of course the home office. In this article we will assume that you are starting your advocacy service from home. As part of your advocate training, we provide you with access to our Advocate Business Resource Center (ABRC). The ABRC is designed to answer your business related questions. The ABRC will help you to make important business decisions.
The ABRC covers everything from what type of business entity to become to short-term hiring and liability insurance. The ABRC is included at no additional costs within your Ultimate advocate training package.
In this report, I’ll list several of the basic materials you’ll need to activate your advocacy service. Some of you will already have many of these elements in your possession.
