My name is Gary Ackerman. I am a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Owner and entrepreneur.
My passion is helping others live their dreams.
This blog is for anyone who is ready to take action to pursue their dreams. Although, I will be focusing on veteran entrepreneurs, this community will be for all those who thinking about or have already launched their own business.
This blog will be partly about how to establish your business and my person journey as a business owner. Doing anything worthwhile takes time and commitment and launching a business will certainly take persistence. My motto is take action every day! No matter how big the project, as long as you stay consistent and persevere, you will eventually succeed. I was recently listening to James Altucher’s audiobook “Choose Yourself.” He said that you should keep failing until your accidentally succeed; I love that. http://www.jamesaltucher.com/
In July of 2012, my two partners and I launched a Service Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Business. It wasn’t until late in 2013 that we finally had enough structure in place to pursue or first proposal and have just won our first small contract. In April of this year, I formed another company with two partners that will engaged in Social Media Marketing. I will share with you lessons I’ve learned and the challenges faced in launching a start up.
For veterans, your military service will benefit you in starting and managing your business. Regardless if you have spent time in military or not, the time to begin is right now!
