    Georgia MICROBOARDS Association 
DAVID TAYLOR JR.
RaceCar Waterboy, LLC. 
The Georgia Microboards Association, AAAFDD, and the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities 
hosted an informational meeting with Guest Speaker David Taylor, Jr., a 25 year old young man from 
North Carolina who has achieved his dream of finding the right job. David owns and operates RaceCar Waterboy LLC, a bottled water vending company which David started in September of 2006. Mr. Taylor also developed a book, "Micro-Enterprise: 25-Step Business Plan Workbook," that was purchased by Vocational Rehabilitation for use by their consumers. 

Mr. Taylor's advocacy to own his own business has also led the state of North Carolina to include 
Micro-enterprises as a covered waiver service.  Presentation participants also heard from Ruthie-Marie Beckwith, Ph.D. a consultant with Employment First Georgia on ways individuals can turn the need for a product or service in their local communities into their own self-employment opportunities.
