Hi everyone my name is Timileyin and in this post i will be explaining to you how to experience success in your business as an entrepreneur even if you have a negative health condition.
In this post i will be using an health condition termed DYSLEXIA and our case study will be a man who happens this health condition but has also succeeded in his entrepreneurial activities, his name is Stephen Key.
According to Stephen he said he has Dyslexia which means he finds it difficult to learn in the sense that he cannot identify sounds of alphabets which in turn makes him unable to spell or pronounce words well.
According to statistics, Dyslexia is a common health condition affecting about 20% of the whole population and about 80 to 90% of those with learning disabilities.
If you are reading this now, that means you actually want it and trust me i can imagine the how ashamed you may feel as a result of your health condition but that isn’t the end of the world, remember the quote that says ” nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission “. Therefore you need to prove to yourself that you are the master of your fate,the captain of your soul.
Since we have spoken a bit about Dyslexia and how it affects the activities of those who have that ailment, let’s now establish a link between Dyslexia and Entrepreneurship.
As a Dyslexia patient, you can succeed in entrepreneurship provided you follow the following these following tips
The first is
TO TAKE OUT FEAR AND ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP WHEN NEEDED
One thing to bear in mind is that everyone needs help at some area in their lives so don’t think that you are the only one who is challenged. Always ask for help when you need one.
According to Stephen, he explained how he was assisted in some of the activities he couldn’t carry out like when he had to write letters to potential licensees, his wife helped out and that problem was solved.
His longtime employee James Shenan helped out in filling provisional patent applications with the United States Patents and Trademark office.
The second is
TO TAKE QUALITY NOTES
Although his health condition deprived him from pronouncing or writing, he still ensured he took notes but he did this by first recording whatever he wants to write down by using his iPhone and then taking his time to write them down.
This singular step helped him in a great way and also his business.
The third is

As i have earlier said Stephen uses his iPhone to take notes and this helps him in a great deal to stay in track with the activities in his business.
