Transition Phase: Moving on from Sole Proprietorship

Wow! I never thought I would be as successful as I have been. Thank you to all my current and future clients for supporting me and my work. I am very privileged to have the clientele, and the support that I do. I started this work because I couldn’t find anyone to hire me during COVID before the vaccines were released, so I started my own business due to needing to find work to support myself.

Folks have been so great to work with, and I am proud of each and everyone of you that I’ve provided services for thus far. Growth is not easy, and so I wanted to just state here that I am appreciative and grateful for you all.

I hope that my work has helped you individually, or your business grow in ways that you needed to, that your goals were met so you could learn more.

It’s a slow and steady process, but I wanted to transition out of sole proprietorship. This is because it’s easier for me to do this work with others. The folks that will be working with me are neurodivergent, and we have an ally on our team as well. This sole proprietorship will transition into an LLC, with four other folks (5 total). We have one spot open and more information about this is in the following note: we are looking for a nurse practitioner, or even a medical doctor for our team who would be willing to work with us. If you are interested in working on continuing education, consultations, trainings, etc. through our company, please email me at thecreativeautistic@gmail.com with a cover letter and a resume, and I will forward it to our team.
