Emily and PJ: Emily's Bracelets

Emily and PJ: Emily's Bracelets

Welcome back to the podcast, I’m Jamie Baynes. Today’s guest is PJ Morrissey. I was working an off-duty job when a guy approached me and gave me a bead bracelet with a thin blue line color pattern. He told me about the special woman who made them and wrote down her website for me: emilysbracelets.com. I went to her website and was amazed at the number of bracelets this woman had designed. I sent an email and asked if Emily could come on the podcast. PJ responded and said that Emily doesn’t do well with interviews, but he’d love to come on and brag about his sister. Once you finish, let me know what you think of PJ and Emily.

 Also let me know what you think about  the fact that 80% of people like Emily can’t find work, despite having a skillset that is equal to or greater than people working the same job.

 The way Emily looks at people is the way we should all look at people: not judging others by the color of their skin, their gender, their religious beliefs or any of the other ways that people who claim to be leaders want us to look at each other. Emily looks at each person as a fellow human being clumped together with other human beings here on earth. Period. 

Make sure you check out Emily’s bio down below, and hit a few of the links PJ lists.  Then head over to Emily's  website and get yourself a bracelet or six. 

Remember, look out for one another, and ignore anyone who wants you to hate another human being simply because they’re different than you are.

Thanks for listening.

Emily's Bio:

Emily Morrissey is a young adult with Cerebral Palsy who has found her passion in making bracelets and spreading smiles! Emily's family members were concerned about what job she would have after high school, as the unfortunate reality of the situation is that 80% of individuals with disabilities are not active in the workforce. Ever since she was a little girl, Emily has been making special bracelets through occupational therapy to strengthen her fine motor skills. On October 1st, 2018, Emily's Bracelets was launched as an answer to her family's concerns.
