Max’s favourite things entail teaching and helping others achieve their goals and so he began another business: personal coaching. With the companionship of his crazy Dalmation-mix, Penny, Max now spends his days singing, reading, blogging, writing, creating videos, and coaching. http://theblindblogger.net/books
