Today’s daily inspiration is the story of Collette, a young woman with Down Syndrome who started her own cookie company.

Here’s a quote from her website:

“Collette, a young woman with Down Syndrome, has been creating her own recipe for cookies for fun! But after rejection over and over again when applying for a job and being told she had great skills but was not “a good fit” she was determined to own her own business, despite any disability, and show people how able she is. Collette was not only determined to show everyone how capable people with (dis) abilities are, but her mission is to open production facilities across the country and employ thousands of different abilities !”

Her story was picked up by a local CBS station in Boston and within 10 days she had over 50,000 cookies orders. What an amazing person! We can all learn a valuable lesson from her! Here’s her story:
