About Maxwell Ivey

Maxwell Ivey, known around the world as The Blind Blogger, has transformed himself from a totally blind failed carnival owner to respected amusement equipment broker. He had to learn so many new things in order to launch that business in 2007 including teaching himself how to code HTML. People were impressed with how he took on difficult challenges and encouraged him to share more of what it’s like to be a blind entrepreneur.

That lead to a second website and a second blog as The Blind Blogger a name that other people online had been using as a short-hand for years. Since then, he has written four book, been interviewed on over 350 podcasts, started teaching people how to be great guests, began booking people on shows, and eventually started his own podcast called What’s Your Excuse.

He has accomplished many difficult goals by being willing to ask for help or opportunities and accept them when offered, by deciding to find and implement solutions instead of making excuses, and by being determined to find the positive in all aspects of his life. He believes it’s easier to answer an awkward question than to make people guess. So, if you have any question for him at all, please just ask him.
