One of the best part of podcasting is meeting really interesting people, several of whom I have had the honor of getting to know and proudly call friend. Maxwell Ivey is one of those people. He’s a blogger, a coach and a business man. He’s also completely blind. What I appreciate about Max is that he has never let his lack of sight stop him.

In fact, he recently boarded a train in his hometown of Houston bound for New York City. The Big Apple is intimidating for sighted people. A lot of people wouldn’t have even attempted such a trip; but Max isn’t a lot of people. He found an Air BnB and someone to accompany him around time and he was off. Times Square, Wicked on Broadway, riding the subway and the ferry. He had a true New York experience.

So he is stopping by to share his story and how it is that he manages to stay so positive and adventurous. Max is one person who could come up with a ton of excuses but he doesn’t. In fact, the word excuse doesn’t even seem to be in his vocabulary.

Join us as we celebrate adventure, gusty moves and embracing life.
