03 Sep September 4, 2018 – Blind Blogger Maxwell Ivey, Facebook Funnels Michelle L. Evans and 60 Minute CFO David Duryee
Maxwell Ivey is the Blind Entrepreneur! He is an Amusement Ride and Carnival Equipment Broker, Blogging Coach, Public Speaker, and Author. Born into a family of carnival owners in Texas, USA, Max lost his sight at age 12. Having a natural gusto for life, Max graduated from college and became heavily involved in the Eagle Scouts. He also worked in the family business alongside brothers until his father succumbed to lung cancer. Faced with his own mortality, Max made some life-altering changes. He underwent gastric surgery and lost over 250 pounds. He started his own business, buying and selling amusement rides, and learned how to blog using software for visually-impaired people. Overcoming many obstacles, Max made a name for himself online and now shares his experiences on The Blind Blogger. Max’s favorite things entail teaching and helping others achieve their goals and so he began another business: personal coaching.
