Yes, I will confess I am a media hound when it comes to sharing all I do with those who invite me to be a guest on their show! On the recovery side of things, I will speak and advocate at any chance I can get. On the book promoting side, I just enjoy sharing all that I do to help new and seasoned authors. Max did a great job pulling out some of my marketing secrets!
It was a delightful interview I know all authors and writers will enjoy listening to. So have a pencil and paper ready to take notes.
What’s Your Excuse Show With Author, Catherine Lyon
About Author and Show Host Maxwell Ivy Jr.
“While Max may not be able to see with his eyes, he opens the eyes of everyone around him. ” ~ ‘Super Joe Pardo Show”
Hello; My name is Maxwell Ivey, Max to my friends; and that is what I hope we will become.
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.

I Will See You and Help You
Because I listen with my heart, I will see all of you. I will see those hidden abilities, possibilities, and opportunities.
I will see the roadblocks you put up between you and success. I will show you the lies that you tell yourself. I will correct those lies that the world has told you.
Because I have already done this in my own life.
When my father’s death resulted in the closure of our family’s small traveling carnival, I had to figure out what to do next.
I started by doing the only thing I thought I knew how to do. I helped other people sell their surplus amusement equipment.
Every day brought a new challenge. I had to learn so much. The amazing thing was that every time I accomplished something new, it gave me the confidence to believe that I could do even bigger things.
Since then, I have come so far and still have much farther I want to go.
I went from a morbidly obese, failed carnival owner to respected amusement equipment broker in the best health of my life.
I went from a frightened radio show guest to being a prolific online media guest to hosting my own podcast called the What’s Your Excuse Show.
I went from writing my first book on a dare to competing for and winning the Amtrak prestigious Writers In Residence Award. I’m now working on my fourth self-help book.
