Disability Taking Action: Eric Lupton

July 4, 2019

New posting! Today we are showcasing Eric Lupton, a business owner from Delray Beach, Florida. Check out what he shared with us.

 

 

 

Q: Tell us a little bit about your disability.

 

A: I have cerebral palsy. It was caused by an accident while I was being born. I use a power wheelchair, and I need help transferring, dressing, and bathing, among other things. I'm able to feed myself and type.

 

Q: What is your business and how it started?

 

A: Life Saver Pool Fence Systems manufactures removable mesh pool safety fencing to keep young children from accessing the pool. It was started in 1987 by my father, and I took it over from him in 2002.

 

 

Q: Being someone with a disability influenced the way you manage your business?

 

A: Having cerebral palsy has made me a creative problem solver and patient on larger issues. I'm not as easily discouraged, and I think my disability is a factor in that.

 

Q: Do you think the business community still has misconceptions towards those with disabilities?

 

A: I think people in general still have misconceptions towards people with disabilities, so that extends to the business community as well.

 

Q: Would you have any advice to someone that is disabled and is struggling to find a job or build a business?

 

A: I believe that entrepreneurship is the best path for anyone with a disability. One of the most important things for any entrepreneur is focusing on your strengths and delegating your weaknesses, and this is something that anyone with a disability needs to do.
