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.

DaveAckerman's Goals 3
Money Goals
QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?
I would be happy if I was earning 2,000USD or at least 1500GBP per month.

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?
I would be ecstatic if I was earning 5,000USD or at least 3000GBP per month.

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
As much time as is needed.

30 years ago I started my own air travel agency. I sold it to my partner and started another one which lasted 11 years. I was earning about 3000USD a month from it back in the 90's. I had to pay rent, an accountant, employ staff, pay trade association fees, a lawyer for the legal stuff, pay bank charges, advertising costs, business taxes, and finally personal tax. In those days the internet and internet marketing was in its infancy. To have the opportunity of working from home, being my own boss and having access to a global market would have been a dream!. Now I've taken the first step!

And with none of those overheads. Its cash-flow or lack of it that causes stress in traditional business.
