About Donald Gavin

My name is Donald Gavin and my wife, Annie (Annette), and I have been married since 1978. We have three children, Hamish, Rhonda and Megan. In addition I have a step-daughter, Andrea (Andie). They are all married in their own right and all have children of their own. That makes me a grandfather -of 10! I am 59 years old and work as a full-time truck driver. I work for a trucking company called Tauhara Haulage (2008) Ltd and regulary drive to Wellington and back each day, which takes at least 11 hours! I am building and online business with a view to being able to replace my ‘normal’ job without having to worry about where my next meal is going to come from.

We live in Taupo, situated in the centre of the North Island. It is a beautiful place to live and I could not imagine living anywhere else. Taupo is in the heart of the central North Island volcanic region and is situated on the shores of Lake Taupo, which in turn is the site of the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history. It occurred in 168AD so even I am not old enough to remember it! As a point of interest the picture you see in the header for this site was taken a picture I took from my home, which overlooks Lake Taupo.

I am an avid reader, love anything to do with trains (especially if they are steam trains) and spend much of my spare time researching my family tree and family history. Just for the record I am of Scots descent and hail from the line of the clan chiefs of Clan Cameron (I am a direct descendant of Donald John Cameron, 19th Chief, known as the Gentle Lochiel).

Anyway, enough of that. I am really not in any way noble… just an ordinary “Kiwi bloke” as we would say here in New Zealand. Over the past 5 years I have been learning how to make money online. My goal with Internet marketing is to set myself up for retirement, which is a lot closer these days than it ever used to be. Also, if I am honest, I look forward to learning something new and challenging as well. My point here is simply this, if you want things to change in your circumstances then the only person who can change them is you!

I haven’t always been a driver and have done a variety of jobs from working in the field of industrial chemistry to regional manager for a large oil company. I have owned and operated several ‘brick and mortar’ businesses over the course of several years and with varying degrees of success. I have also been involved in various network marketing and online enterprises, again with varying degrees of success.

This website is all about the journey I have taken and, indeed, am still on. The journey found its beginnings with little more than the idea that I would like to make money online, initially on a part-time basis but with a view to becoming full-time and then building multiple income streams to sustain my wife and I in our retirement. I have tried all manner of systems, programs and ideas most of which failed miserably in the early days but I have to say that I now find my efforts increasingly successful as I learn more and apply that knowledge to my ever expanding online business. I once heard someone say “there are many ways you can make money online but there are only a few things that you should be doing to make money online”. My journey has proven this to be very true!

I invite you to journey with me.
