Maxwell Ivey
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 fatherís and grandfatherís footsteps and be part of the family business.

As you can tell by reading this, that isnít where I ended up. I did help in the business over the years, but couldnít 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.
