I am so happy that Maxwell Ivey reached out to be a few months back about my Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference. We chatted a bit and after finding out what he does, I felt he was a great fit to bring him onto Dreamers Podcast! 🙂

Read more about Maxwell Ivey

I am a 49-year-old  blind gentleman who grew up in a family of carnival owners. All I ever wanted to do was to continue in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and be part of the family business.

As you can tell by reading this, that isn’t where I ended up. I did help in the business over the years, but couldn’t sustain it after the early death of my father (who had lung cancer). I then turned to helping people sell their amusement equipment. I do that on my other site, The Midway Marketplace.

I started blogging to promote that site and met a lot of wonderful people in the blogosphere. They told me that I had an amazing story and many commented on how I inspired them. They finally convinced me that I had a bigger purpose in store for myself.

So, I started this second blog, and in it I share more of my personal journey, struggles, and triumphs. I also got noticed by a lot of people and have appeared as a guest, an interview subject, and a motivator on many different sites. My As Seen Online page lists these places.

I do my best to help others, and do so mostly by encouraging them to take steps towards their ultimate goal, or to continue on the path they have started.

I am now offering coaching to help people who are stuck and frustrated with not being able to find their passion or follow their dreams once they have determined what they want in their lives.

I am also available to speak to groups. I believe that by sharing the story of my personal growth and transformation, it will motivate and inspire anyone who hears it.

In addition to starting a new business, I have also lost over 250 pounds through a combination of gastric surgery, diet, exercise, positive attitude, meditation, and prayer.

I believe I can help you. If you have questions for me, just ask them via the contact form. If anything, I am known for being too forthcoming!

I want to get to know you and become friends. I want to hear about your dreams and aspirations as well as your fears and concerns. I want to help you to grow to be that person you were meant to be.

I look forward to speaking with you. Let’s talk soon.

Thanks and take care out there.

    HI Buddy; has it really been that long since we first started talking. That would be august or september of last year? And while I wasn’t able to make this year’s conference I hear it was a smashing success and everyone is looking forward to this year. And how is the book going? or am I supposed to mention that? well we had a great talk before, during, and after the call. maybe we should have saved that audio for our best of cd or for later release. hmm the things you think of after the fact. I hope more people can learn from my example. I didn’t have big dreams to start with. but when i accepted that one of them was no longer possible it opened me up to so many more bigger better crazier dreams. now it seems like every day there is something new or a different aspect to one I’m already chasing. this weekend someone said hey max if you are pitching speaking gigs then why not pitch cruise lines. They said you probably won’t get cash but you will get a trip somewhere fun. those gigs aren’t easy to get but yes you guessed it I’ve already started sending out pitch emails. if you are reading this and thinking about starting a blog or a podcast or something where you need content; I’m always up for helping someone else with their dream. Its like I tell people the hard part is pressing send. I press send a lot. 🙂 thanks again for having me and more your suggestions with promoting myself and my own book. and I do hope to meet sometime soon. I would love to be part of year two for the conference. blessings my friend. xoxoxo max

    Hey Max!

    Thank you so much for being a guest on Dreamers Podcast! Everything for me has been going great since we spoke. I can’t believe it’s been so long ago already!

    Last year’s conference was excellent and this year is shaping up to be 10x better! My books are selling well and everything else is shaping up around it to be a great year.

    I hope you are doing well. I also hope you land some of those cruises to speak on. 🙂

    Let me know how it goes.
