About DaveAckerman
Joined August 2013
Hi Guys and Ladies,

I'm Dave Ackerman and I live in the UK. I have an extensive background in the travel industry, nearly 25 years, just over half of which was spent running my own businesses specializing in long haul air travel, mainly to Australia, USA, Canada and New Zealand.

I am also the co-founder of a network of nearly 70 animal welfare and animal rights groups on Facebook, called Action Against Animal Abuse, known as 4A. Our mission is to bring awareness (and take action where possible) of not only animal abuse issues, but those involving the abuse of vulnerable innocent humans and the destruction of our planet. If you care about these issues too then please join us.

For anyone who has never been their own boss, let me tell you there is nothing quite like it, except possibly being in a virtually 100% secure and well paid job with a financially stable company - providing you enjoy doing whatever it is that you do.

From my experience, working for other companies is usually a waste of time, unless you are actively helping people with what they need (not just what they want), or helping animals or the environment. Every company I have ever worked for has, in my opinion, exploited its workers by paying them far less than most of them were worth. My mission within Wealthy Affiliate is to help as many people as possible become their own bosses and for them to be in control of their financial future.

Many people say to me "there are no jobs out there - the economy is bad" - Let me tell you that that is what the teachers said to me and my schoolmates 40 years ago ! Nothing changes !

My neighbor across the street who is 60 said the same thing to me recently. He's just been made redundant. He's worried he'll never get another job 'at his age'

I'll say this. If you have a PC, a reasonable internet connection, a desk and chair, lighting, heating, and a small amount of peaceful leisure time, you can create your own business. Online.

I actually started by buying and selling on eBay, a few years back. Once I bought something for about $1 and sold it for nearly $500, on an eBay auction. That was just one of several great sales. It gave me a taste for selling on the internet.

Everyone with the above 'office equipment' has access to a global market of around 2 billion people. The majority of those people will be looking to buy something, off someone, somewhere. That 'someone' could be you, or me.

I believe that Wealthy Affiliate is the best place online to learn how to be a successful internet marketer. Having been here a while now I wouldn't be anywhere else. The training and the online help is second to none. It is a great community. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

I nearly forgot to mention that I am also a great lover of music, mainly 70s rock and acoustic/folk. My current 'listens' are Joe Bonamassa, who wasn't even born when I left school (I feel so old !) and the Milk Carton Kids. Check out Joe's 'Sloe Gin' and 'Driving Towards the Daylight' or the MCK's 'Michigan' - great stuff, I think.

Wishing you all success or continued success.

Keep on keeping on. - Dave.

P.S. One of my pictures is one taken a few years back with my dog Sabre, who unfortunately passed away in October 2012 aged about 10 years. I rescued him in 2004 and I was told he was about two at that time, and indeed he was still at the puppy stage of chewing up my mail with my eBay checks inside! I miss him every day, but life goes on, albeit a little more quietly. Now no one barks when the mailman calls. I miss that too.

Dave, thanks for the follow. We don't have dog/s but we have had a lot of abandoned cats. We haven't rescued them, they found us. Except for Katie our current "adopt a pest". Yes that is right. She is a great paper shredder and loves sitting on the counter or the middle of the table, generally while you are trying to eat. And she does get put on the floor but bounces back. I will look into your sites soon.
And it looks like it's time for you to be adopted by another dog.

DaveAckerman Premium
It's nice to meet you Helen. I've had 25-30 cats over the years, but just have two at the moment, with another two cats, two dogs and a girlfriend moving in at the end of August, so it is going to get a bit noisy!

Hi Dave,
Thanks so much for following back. Wow! What a profile page. You sure gave me a lot of inspiration to keep going. I have been distracted from a lot of other things that I am currently doing right now. But I will definitely check out your youtube page. I want to thank you in advance for offering you help and wanting others to succeed in running their own business. I have gone through hell working a large company and it almost killed me (as you can see from my profile). This has lead me to a new way of looking at life and I desire to run my own business. I will definitely use you help when the time comes.

Great to meet you David!

Hiya Dave, thanks for initiating a follow .I;I'll be going to all your websites, getting them bookmarked and reading them.....real soon.

One of my best friends is an animal activist, big-time. I’ve boarded (free) rescue horses on my property for her and many cats (w ere to be for the barn but guess where they wound up!), dogs, or whatever animals, mostly horses though. Good for you doing that! So sorry about your beloved pet….I lost my Sambo (cocker/water spaniel mix) when I was a teenager and miss him still to this day.
Welcome! And if I can help you (as a newbie still) give me a holler…;)

Thank you for following, I know it has been some time but I have been sidetracked for the past few months (not least because we got a little pup), but back here to carry on learning internet marketing again. I'll take a look at the animal site, not enough gets done about animal abuse in my opinion. I'm using ebay to 'tick over' while I get this project going - I could use a couple of 500% profit items from time to time! Good Luck.

Hi Dave,
Love your profile; very positive and motivating, and full of life experience. I'm enjoying learning the different aspects of becoming an internet marketer. Abit slow getting my site up but I want to finish my content before making it public. I also LOVE animals; the first pic I clicked on was your dog Sabre and OMG he is gorgeous! I say IS because he's out there somewhere, maybe in a different form, here or on another planet, but he's out there doing his thing! Death, like time, is an illusion; it's just another part of this continuous life cycle of learning. Thanks for adding me to your network and no doubt I will call on you in the future for help and advice.
All the best in your continued success : )

Oh...I just finish reading your profile message. Full of emotional moments.

This one keeps me silent & sad for a while: "...Now no one barks when the mailman calls. I miss that too." Yup...Sabre has been with you for a long time with lots of memories.

And this one makes me LAUGH: "My current 'listens' are Joe Bonamassa, who wasn't even born when I left school (I feel so old !)"...Well, really? I don't think you're OLD at all.

Have a great weekend, Dave.

Hi Dave - You have an interesting story and so agree with your perspective re being one's own boss. I've been my own boss most of my working life but enjoy working now from home and making my own hours and not having employees anymore (even though I"m still close with many of those who worked for my company over the years). And I love working in an area I love. Will definitely check out your FB page. Am a big animal lover and animal rights advocate.
Wishing you much success here. As a newbie Internet Marketer, I am excited to see how this unfolds. See you around WA!

Thanks for the follow, Dave. Nice to meet you. Protecting the vulnerable is hugely important work and you are certainly doing your part.

It is so true that people were saying how bad the economy was 40 years ago. Reminded me of something I read a while ago:

"...The hurry and bustle of modern life lacks the quiet and repose of...our forefathers..." - William Smith Morley, 1886

If there was hurry and bustle in 1886, what speed are we at now? ~ Jude

Hi Jude, yes, it probably just has gone from poor to bad to worse to 'worser' to worst, unfortunately. - Dave.

Kudos for your work helping abused animals. I love your message too. It's good for people like me to hear the encouragement here on WA. Self-doubt is a killer and it tries to take me down on a consistent basis. Actually just blogged about it today. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/tiffanyolson/blog/why-does-doubt-come-so-easy :)

DaveAckerman Premium
I've just read that, funnily enough. I struggled with self-doubt for years after my divorce. It's taken me many more years to realize certain things in life and I am one of those people that have learned the hard way, through life's experiences. Experience, as they say, is a dear teacher, or something like that, :)

I've definitely had my fair share of "learning the hard way." But honestly I think that most of the good things are learned this way. :)

Dave - thanks for the follow! I too have the music bug. Been a guitar player for 30 years. Mostly into jazz. Been teaching for 20. Hoping to make something of this. No credits yet, but I'm keeping the optimism going. Just trying to learn as much as I can. Can you really make money doing this? New to website stuff - ARealWAy.com. Cheers, Pete. (Wheatstraw)

I just checked out your website and I think it's really good Pete. I'm fairly new here myself too, about two months, and learning what I can, when I have spare time. I still have a day job, although it's actually a night job, the dreaded third shift/night shift :)

Thanks for the follow Dave. It's truly admirable that you are taking action on animal abuse the way you are. My older dog was adopted by us from a no kill rescue centre and my other boy from a local pound. The pound dog's owners didn't want to come and get him and what a mess he was. All you could see was his nose and totally matted, filthy hair, etc. Enough said, but soft touch (me) ended up keeping him and not moving him on elsewhere. I'll check out FB when I get a chance. I wish you every success with all your ventures. Kindest regards.

Thanks Annie. Rescue dogs are just the best. Mine died a year ago yesterday. I miss him terribly and when I am working from home full time I will get another. :) - Dave.

Hi Dave, thanks for following, and I'll reciprocate by following you. I see we have something in common - a love of animals. I used to volunteer at a pound which had a high-kill reputation. I couldn't stand to see the effect of stupid policies and lack of care, so set about 'fixing' things. I eventually got kicked out because management got sick of me telling them how to run their pound - lol, they did me a favour, for then I had even more time to agitate, and with others, we turned this pound into a low-kill pound (~10%) and one which desexed all cats and dogs sold. I also rescued and re-homed dogs and a few cats too. Good on you for being so involved with animal welfare. I've left the scene now but still have 4 foster-failure dogs. The advent of social media has helped the cause for animals so much - it is a great form of communicating and spreading the word, and getting people involved.
I'm a newbie at internet marketing too but another source of income never hurt anyone, so I thought I'd give it a try. Here's wishing you great success!

Thanks for the invitation, Dave, but I'll leave FaceBook (and Twitter) alone - blogging take up far too much time. I've left the rescue scene (other than helping financially when I can) for it took over my life, and there are other things I want to do now.

Just wanted to add that Paul & Katherine Archer, from DeathrowPets.net (whom I was associated with, spying on a high-kill pound), are Brits, living in Tasmania (England when you're not in England). They do a tremendous job. They are also on Facebook if you want to make contact. Cheers, M.

Hi Dave, always good to see another pom in here!

Travel industry huh? I always wanted to get into that but never found an opportunity. Got into the Casino business instead and travelled quite well within that industry, sadly even those opportunities are drying up now.

Besides I'm getting to old for it now, want something where I can continue to travel and take my business with me... This is the ideal platform, if I can get the money rolling in!

I'll keep an eye on you to see how you're getting on and if you need any help with anything give me a shout, I'll always do my best to point you in the right direction.
