    EPS 58: From darkness to the light.. the blind blogger.. NEW

    in Motivation

    Join UIF Founder Tim Ray as he interviews Maxwell Ivey - the blind blogger on UI Radio.

    Maxwell is a 49-year-old  blind gentleman who grew up in a family of carnival owners. All he ever wanted to do was to continue in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and be part of the family business. He did help in the business over the years, but couldn’t sustain it after the early death of my father (who had lung cancer). Then he turned to helping people sell their amusement equipment at The Midway Marketplace.

    He started blogging to promote that site and met a lot of wonderful people in the blogosphere. He has an amazing story and many commented on how he inspired them and he realized he had a bigger purpose in life.

    So, he started the second blog, and in it I share more of my personal journey, struggles, and triumphs. He has appeared as a guest, an interview subject, and a motivator on many different sites.

    He does his 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.

    Sunday's with The Ninja Pastor! "Blind enough to SEE!"

    in Religion

    “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” A blind beggar on the side of a busy street at the outskirts of town shouted this out to Jesus…what was he asking for? 

    The dictionary definition of “mercy” is compassion for an offender - lenience and sympathy. Was that what he expected do you think?  

    How many times have you been at a place in your life, a place so desperate, so in need, so at the end of yourself, that you cried out to Jesus? 

    In the natural you had nowhere else to go.  You have nowhere else...  If only we were blind enough to see!

    Universal Energy Media, A conversation with the blind blogger, Maxwell Ivey

    in Spirituality

    Maxwell Ivey is a totally blind business owner, blogger, sometimes podcaster, and newly self published author of the book, "leading you out of the darkness into the light," a blind man's inspirational guide to success. His primary business is helping people sell new and used amusement equipment and related items. He started after the early death of his father lead to the closure of his family's small traveling carnival. While building that business, he had to learn many things including marketing, how to hand code html, start a blog, record videos, use social media create newsletters, and much more. He 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 his friends persuaded him that he had more to offer and should be sharing his story of inspiration. He 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, he relented and started a second website where he shares more personal stories about being a blind entrepreneur.

    From that he wrote an ebook called leading you out of the darkness into the light, a blind man's inspirational guide to success. In it he shares the life lessons he's learned and he encourages the reader to write to him with their progress.
