Wausau, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2013 -- UCan Promotions is a marketing company that provides businesses and organizations with promotional products like corporate gifts, employee incentives, customer appreciation, mugs, key chains, glasses, business cards, etc. that are customized with the company’s logo and messages.
‘UCan promotions’ is a family business run by Scott Johnson and his son Michael. Michael is a charming 14 year-old boy with cerebral palsy, a brain disorder that diminishes flexibility and strength in his arms, legs and other muscles. Worried about his son’s future, Scott Johnson thought of ways to secure his son financially while helping him mature into an individual with great moral values and business knowledge. Scott eventually left his insurance job and started UCan Promotions to teach his son people skills, communication, leadership and responsibility. The business is a way to teach Michael important business, people and communication skills and the value of being honest and enthusiastic. Michael is learning to be an independent and community oriented individual. Michael has been helping his father with sales calls and deliveries that give him real world experience. Just as the name of the company implies, Scott is continually reminding Michael – UCan do whatever YOU choose!
“Many parents of disabled children worry about having sufficient funds put away for when they're no longer around so their child will be properly cared for and have a secure future. Although my wife and I have a trust fund and insurance policies, I always wonder if it will ever be enough. I wanted to give my son something more. Through UCan Promotions I’m teaching him everything I know about sales and business. I’m able to teach Michael the people and communication skills every individual should possess. These are the skills that can help him to succeed. I’ve seen Michael’s confidence growing and the other skills are definitely developing. As the business moves forward, I’m confident he’ll continue to grow which helps me to feel confident he'll be okay long after his mom and I are no longer around.”—Scott Johnson
