This post is a response to a suggestion from Ronda Andrews, host of Speak Life Radio. She suggested that I may not be getting the results out of my radio appearances because I’m depending on people finding them from my as seen online page.
She suggested that I start writing a short blog post every time I do a podcast, radio show, or write a guest post. She said this way anyone subscribed to my rss feed will be automatically alerted to your appearances.
This week I was blessed to be featured on three radio shows. Yes, even I’m a bit amazed by the number of people who want me to tell my story on their shows. I thought I would right one post to tell you about all three of them.
And you may notice that I included two ways for you to listen. You can listen to them on my site by using the embedded audio players. Or you can click the direct link and listen on the show host’s site. This may be easier if you want to fast forward as you can download the audio from their pages.
Positive Living Vibrations Radio
Here is where you can listen to my talk with Sarah Troy creator and host of Positive Living Vibrations. She has a lovely british accent, and we had an amazing hour long conversation.
We talked about my background and how I became the blind blogger. We talked about my message of do what you can today and do more tomorrow. And I feel like I did some good with this show.
I should also mention that one of the things that makes Sarah special is that she didn’t realize her own true purpose until late in her life. She is now in her 60’s and feels blessed to improve the world by giving people like me a place to share our stories.
Out on the Limb Radio
This is where you can find my interview with Dr. Nicola Bird on her show Out on the Limb Radio. I am her second guest. Each interview last about 30 minutes.
The show’s theme was buying a golden ticket to chase your dreams. I couldn’t have been more perfect for this show.
It was a solid show. We talked more about my journey in reference to the role God has played in my life. I think one of the best points is my thoughts about my blindness and what it says about God and his plans for us here on earth.
Speak Life Radio
This is where you can hear my appearance on Ronda Andrews show Speak Life Radio. The interview lasts about an hour, and its one of the best I’ve ever done. It was right up there with my time on Join Up Dots with David Ralph.
I had a great time. Ronda has a naturally engaging interview style. She is warm and personable. And it doesn’t hurt that we laughed quite a bit while talking. She really puts herself into bringing the audience a powerful show.
And I want to encourage you to stick around for her second guest Dr. Sharon Hummer. I say this for two reasons. One, her talk about her experience with a child of autism and the work she is doing with their families is important. Two, because her and Ronda refer back to some of the things I said during their talk.
This was a busy week with three radio shows and a return to blogging and blog commenting. I hope I am finally over whatever was draining my energy and making it difficult to do the things I know I need to be doing to be successful.
I started to say I don’t have another show scheduled until June, but then I looked at or that is listened to the calendar on my laptop; and I realized that June is just a few days away. After that one though my schedule is pretty open.
I know it shouldn’t be new to me, but these shows have reenforced in me the belief that I am an inspiration and more people need to hear my story. So, I will continue to send out those pitch emails and gratefully appear on more radio shows to share my story of hope and do my best to motivate people to take those small steps they need to start their own journeys. There are far too many great characters out there who just need a little help writing their own story. And I’m going to be here to help those I can.
I also have to remind myself that all things need to be done in moderation. While one of these shows was recorded the previous week, having three in one week might be a bit too much for me and my fans. So, unless something really good comes along that I just can’t say no to; I plan to only book one of these shows a week. And that should also leave me more time for writing new blog posts, recording new videos, creating the intro video I’ve been promising, converting the book into a video series, etc.
That means if you have a blog, podcast, radio or tv show you want me to appear on; then you should contact me right away to schedule it. I can be reached at 979-215-1770, and on Skype I am Maxwell Ivey with a space between and both first letters capitalized.
I love to help people out, and I understand that sometimes technical issues come up or people can’t go on. And if that happens I am up for filling in last minute.
I hope no one thinks I’m getting a big head. I am just starting to realize that there are a lot of great people out there with amazing sites who need uplifting, inspiring, motivating guests and guest authors like me.
Sharing is caring
This is the point where you expect me to ask you to share this post with your friends, family, coworkers, and social media networks. Well, I have to do it, its like the McDonalds employee who asks you if you want fries with that. They sell a lot of fries. 🙂
But this time I’d rather you visit the sites of these wonderful people who gave me a platform to connect with so many more people through their shows. These people put in incredible hours and work around commitments to jobs and families so they can fulfill a mission in life of their own.
I may be a reluctant hero, but these people really deserve my help and your support. I hope you will check them out. Who knows, you may make a new friend, gain a new opportunity, or be exposed to other guests that can enrich your life.
Well, that’s it for today. I hope you know that I am here for you. I want to hear about your successes, failures, and plans for comebacks. If you have questions for me, like the email address implies Just Ask
I love meeting new people and making new friends, so don’t feel like you have to need something to message me. And if I can dispel a myth by answering a ticklish question then you know where to find me.
Thanks so much for your continued interest in me and my story. I appreciate the time you spend and the trust you have invested. I’m doing my best to live up to them.
Until next time take care out there my friends, Max
