@uber

I’ve taken over 300 rides with Uber over the last year and I must say I love riding with them with a passion!

I’m blind and Uber was the answer to my dreams for transportation, both convenient and affordable.

I wish I would have thought of the genius concept the Uber founders came up with. Me being a tech head and all…the ability to scale a billion dollar business from GPS and a iPhone.

Simply astounding!

Nevertheless here’s some of the main reasons why Uber is a huge part of my life.…

Uber provides accessible receipts and you can even tag them for business expenses..

This works perfect for me and our accountant.

I no longer have to wait ours for transportation. I wait minutes…often times less than 6.

Uber’s customer service is second to none. They’ve answered e-mails in less than 30 minutes.

They didn’t just give me an auto response, they actually solved the problem in the first e-mail. Everything from correcting fairs and processing refunds was handled with excellence.

I want my company to operate with that type of excellence as well.

So add in the friendly drivers, the fact you can rate them, there is no cash exchange, they use PayPal, Apple Pay and credit/debit cards, their app is accessible, you can split the fair , etc.

I must say @uber…Thanks for changing the world!!!

You can now use the code uberblind (all one word) and get a free ride.
Uber is in several US states and a multitude of countries, so sign up using the code uberblind and take a ride on us.

Get the app

Enter the promo code uberblind and we’re off.

You can call a Uber car from your Apple Watch as well. A few taps and you are on your way…OK, I’m gone now my Uber driver Drew in a Lincoln Town car, license plate #skhdo12 , will be here in 1 minute.

Next on the Uber Update is: Spotify @uber


I just wanted to tell you that the ACB rocks and thank you

Brie and Marcy have never ever been to a national convention in their life. They were scared to death to say the least.

Remember your first time at nationals? Wasn’t it scary?

Now you take it from being their first national convention with thousands of blind individuals to having to put on five sold out events.

Let’s recap…

1st time at a national convention

First time ever having to present together as a team

First time putting on five events in a short period of time

First time having to ask and answer so many questions from so
many people

First time without their husbands for so long

First time having to sell in front of so many people

First time ever being roommates

I for one am proud of them! They stepped out of their comfort zone and did multiple things for the first time in their life.

They will tell their stories on their respective blogs and keep you updated.

As always if you have any questions or comments you should click the leave a comment link below..

Marcy and Brie said they learned allot and they will be even more ready, even more better next year and they have you to thank for changing their life forever!

You guys rock!!

Jill Of All Trades With Kristy

Why doesn’t this woman tell us her last name? She actually goes by two first names.

Kristy is her GOD given name and Jill is her self proclaimed of all trades name.

Rounding out season 3 of the podcast I promised the world to introduce one more amazing person to you guys.

She works on the Fedora Outlier website, the Georgia Statewide Coalition on Blindness website, Disability Link’s website and a host of others.

You all put your hands together for Jack…I mean Jill…sorry, I meant Kristy.

She’s already working so she is not going to be on our reality show as a contestant, but listen in for her Wildcard interview on Blink and assist us in changing the world.


Getter Done With Mr. Scott Smith

Mr. Scott Smith is a man after my own heart, living in one of my favorite states in the US.

He fixes cars, teaches technology and has a bunch of kids around him everyday.

It was a pure joy to interview this guy.

I’m actually going to take him up on his offer to come pass the house, hang out with him, his wife and the kids.

BTW: His wife is on season 4 of the podcast called Blink. It will air live on Sunday August 2nd at 8PM.

We’ll be hiring 20 associates in the next six months. We’ll be making employment a reality for the blind and deaf-blind.

Get the details…tune in and let’s change the world together.
