Max Ivey Talks About Business Success Online And Offline From A Blind Perspective
Blind Blogger Max Ivey On The Digital Wealth Digest
Get Ready to be Inspired by the Digital World with Maxwell Ivey
Hello; My name is Maxwell Ivey, and I’m a totally blind business owner, blogger, sometimes podcaster, and newly self published author. My primary business is helping people sell new and used amusement equipment and related items. I started after the early death of my father lead to the closure of my family’s small traveling carnival. While building that business, I had to learn many things including how to hand code html, start a blog, record videos, use social media including Pinterest, build an email list, recruit clients, write ad copy, generate email newsletters, and much more. I have also lost over 250 pounds after having gastric surgery along with eating healthier regular exercise and a positive attitude.
A little over a year ago my friends persuaded me that I had more to offer and should be sharing my story of inspiration. I disagreed, but they made the argument that there are far too many people in the world with no physical disability who are doing nothing with their lives. So, I relented and started a second website where I share my more personal stories about being a blind entrepreneur.
From that I wrote an ebook. It is a short motivational one called leading you out of the darkness into the light, a blind man’s inspirational guide to success. In it I share the life lessons I’ve learned and offer 11 exercises for people to work through.
I wanted my book to be different, so I included my email address and encourage the reader to write to me with their progress. I did this because we both know far too many people who have read the book, listened to the audio, watched the video, or even attended an expensive seminar; and they still weren’t able to move forward.
I have done quite a few interviews for blogs and radio shows.
I should mention that I am working on my second book detailing my continuing journey to good health and how physical well being is critical to success in any other aspect of your life.
I have finished recording the audio files for an online course to show people how to use radio and podcast interviews to promote themselves and build their brands. It went live on August 3rd, and I have already had one excellent review. It sells for $97 and is available through selz and gum road. Anyone interested can find links to it on my website.
I was recently featured in an interview in New York Magazine. I’m always open to new challenges and opportunities. So, who knows what else I’ll be up to by the time we talk. I think I would make an amazing guest and look forward to discussing it with you further. Thanks and take care, Max
