My Disability Matters to over 40 000 Viewers in 4 Months
Podcast Episode 29 – Interview featuring Dale Reardon from Disability Matters
I am 46 and have been blind since the age of 17. My seeing eye dog Charlie is 7 and is my fourth dog. I am married to Jo and we live in Kingston Beach, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia – yes that little island down south of the main part of Australia!
I have a law degree with honours and have practised as a lawyer in Tasmania, WA and Victoria. I have owned several businesses and currently operate other businesses with my wife, Jo. I was born in Tasmania and have lived in many parts of Australia, and have travelled broadly. So far my favourite place to visit is France. The wine, food and culture are great.
Jo and I now live in the beautiful beachside suburb of Kingston Beach in Tasmania. Charlie is particularly happy that the dog beach is very close by. I started using the internet for business purposes way back in 1996 when I used it to promote our various bed and breakfast properties. The internet, social media and marketing in general have changed a lot since then.
My Disability Matters was established as an idea in January 2016 and went live online in late March 2016. It currently gets around 10000 page views a month and publishes the latest disability news, opinion and discussion. We intend to launch a members only section soon and raise additional funds through a crowd funding campaign for this social enterprise.
