I have been dealing with diabetes for many years and I wanted to share a little bit about how I deal with this disease.
First let me tell you a little bit about the disease itself. I want to say that the opinions here are my own based on what I have learned about this disease over the years.
I suffer from what is referred to as Type 2 Diabetes. What that means is that my body does not produce enough insulin.
As I understand it, Type 2 diabetes is a three fold disease.
Your pancreas does not produce enough insulin to offset the amount of carbohydrates that are consumed. All carbs are the issue for diabetics not just sugar. Although sugar is considered empty carbs with little to no nutritional value.
Your body develops a condition called insulin resistance. What that means is that your body does not know how to use the insulin that it does produce.
Your liver produces glucose to give you the energy you need to go about your life. With diabetics this production can be out of control.
Many Type 2 Diabetics can control their disease with a carefully planned diet. I did this for many years until my blood glucose was no longer responding to the restricted diet. When that happened I needed to take medications.
For many more years I took a medication called Metformin and I still do. When that was no longer enough I was forced to begin insulin therapy. I was taking 2 different kins of insulin. The first one was a long acting insulin which I injected once a day. I also took a fast acting insulin before each meal. In addition to that I was injecting an insulin resistance drug before meals.
I did this for a few years until my doctor prescribed an insulin pump about 15 years ago. I am currently on my third pump, a Mini Med 770G pump from Medtronic. It attaches to my body through an infusion set. There is another devise that attaches to my body that reads my blood glucose and feeds it directly to my pump.
This has made a very big difference in my diabetes control. The measure used to determine the effectiveness of your therapy is a test called A1C. The range of this test to avoid damage to your body from diabetes is under 7.0. Before my pump my A1C was in the 9 and up range. Since I began using the pump my level has dropped to between 6.5 and 6.9.
If you have diabetes and are struggling to keep it under control, I would recommend talking to your doctor of diabetic educator about getting an insulin pump.
I have been a diabetic for many years and have successfully managed it with the help of my doctor and diabetic educator. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to help.

Over the next few days I have plans to record a few how-to videos for some online programs that I use on a regular basis.
One of them is a program called Viral Mail Profits. This program puts all of your mailers, titles and ad copy on one place. This makes it very easy and convenient to send out your ads to many safelists and viral mailers it much less time than what it usually takes to send to multiple mailers.
Another program that I want to create a video for is called TE Command Post. This program keeps track of all of your traffic exchanges. That includes your credits, banners, text ads and even your commissions.
Both of these programs also act as downline builders for other programs you belong to. What that means is if you recruit others to either of these programs, they may join you in the other programs that are included in the downline builder.
I was going to do at least one of these videos today, but since I had to work my offline job today I didn’t have time.
Plus, the management company for my apartment building was doing some major remodeling in my bathroom. My wife and I are getting a brand new shower installed! So it was very noisy in my apartment, Not very condusive to producing videos.
Be looking for these videos in the next few days. I will be looking forward to your feedback.
I am taking part in the Click Track Profit 30 Day Content challenge and today I was drawing a total blank as to what to write so I decided to do an update about me and my life.
My name is Steven Ackerman and I am married to my wife Suzanne for a month shy of 32 years. We live in a small town, Buffalo Minnesota, about 40 miles west of Minneapolis. Suzanne and I have three adult children. Our son Shawn who is 31. He just got married this summer to his wonderful wife Andi.
We also have 2 daughters. Megan is 30 and is married to Mike for 3 years. Pam is 28 and is married to Cody for a month shy of 3 years. My 2 daughters almost sent us to the poor house. They both got married the 3 years ago about 2 months apart.
Pam and Cody are the parents of our first grand child, Charlie who is 14 months. He is a real cutie. I just wish I could see him more. Suzanne and I live in Minnesota and Charlie lives in Texas.
I am mostly retired at the age of 65. I will be 66 in October. In addition to my online efforts I work a couple days a week at my local Walmart. It helps pay for my online efforts. I am hoping to replace that income with online income in the near future. Suzanne also works part time as a Personal Care Attendant.
As far as my online business is concerned. I am the owner of Tornado Traffic, a traffic exchange that just celebrated it’s 4th anniversary. My main affiliate effort is with a very exciting new program Genesis Lifestyle Network.
So that is a very brief overview of Me, my family and my online business. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a litter better.
I attended the annual men’s FUEL conference at my church last night, Free Grace United. In Elk River, Minnesota. I am not sure how many men were there but I know it was well over 200. And a good time was had by all.
We started at 6pm with some fun stuff like throwing axes at a wooden target, checking out a restored GMC Pickup Truck, a couple other manly games and incredible fellowship with other Men of God. This was followed up with a great dinner consisting of a pulled pork sandwich with all the fixings.
You can check out a bunch of pictures and comments at our Facebook Page. Here is just one.
The actual conference began at 7pm with some awesome worship music followed by 4 very inspirational speakers.
Pastor Erik Dykstra – Senior Pastor for Free Grace United
Bob Dettmer – Minnesota State Representative!
Anthony Bass – Church planter and former Minnesota Viking
Pastor Anthony Milas – Senior Pastor at Granite State Baptist Church – Concord, NH
During the conference there was also a drawing for several prizes including 2 freezers filled to the brim with meat. This was followed afterwards by a bonfire, cigar lounge and more fellowship.
The main theme of the conference was taken from 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
“Be watchful. Stand firm in the faith. Act like men. Be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.”
This is a very tough thing to do in today’s society, where standing up and being a man, especially a Man of God, in not considered politically correct. I think it is critical that all Men of God, including myself, begin to do this.
I think Pastor Anthony Milas summed it up best in his talk as to how we can do this.
Love the Lord
Love your wife
Love your family
In that order!
If we as Men of God will stand up and do these three simple things we can change the world. Be bold in your faith and don’t bow to the pressures of this world. Share your faith with others. There are a lot of very broken people out there who need our help and the help of our beloved Savior Jesus Christ.
Writing this blog post is bold step for me personally. I am a Christian Man, but it is difficult for me to share that with others. The Lord has been very good to me and blessed me in many ways.
Thank you for reading my heartfelt blog post. God bless you and everyone you know. Men of Faith, let’s get out there and start sharing the love of Jesus with those people close to our hearth but far from our God!
We Can change this world and it’s current anti-Christian climate if we are bold and love people. The key to everything is LOVE! It will not be easy but it will be rewarding! I am sure of that!
Today I attended the weekly training session for Genesis Lifestyle System. Janet did a great job as she always does.
Today’s subject was “What do I do now that my traffic is coming in?”
The biggest thing I took away from this training is the importance of following up with your leads. I have to admit, this is not my strong suit. Regardless of that, I listened to what Janet had to say and actually did some followup. We will see how that plays out.
Janet also issued us a challenge, which I know we can all do and which will help all of our businesses.
Contact at least 2 of your “Facebook Friends” everyday for the next week and just start a conversation. DO NOT try to sell them on what you have to offer but rather ask them what they are doing. Start a dialog! Who knows where that may lead. I am sure most of us have a large list of “Facebook Friends” who we have never spoken to or have not talked to for a very long time.
She also suggested that, before you contact them, look over their timeline and see what they are posting about to determine if this is some one you would be interested in getting to know better.
Remember the old saying, “People buy from those they know, like and trust.” Let’s get to know them!
I want to say thank you to Janet for taking the time to do these very valuable tranings every Wednesday. I always learn a lot when I am able to attend.
To Our Mutual Success, Steven Ackerman
P.S. This is my day 4 entry for the Click Track Profit 30 day content challenge. #ctpcontent
Most people who use traffic exchange, safelists and other advertising sites, including myself, use them to show your site to others as you visit their sites. But there is an aspect of these sites that is far under used.
Banners and Text Ads!
You may ask, “Why should I add these banners and text ads. There is such a low number of clicks.”
There are a couple of very good reasons.
The First Reason is that since there is no incentive for people to click on your banner or text ads they are very targeted visitors. They are interested in what you have to offer!
Most of the people surfing the traffic exchanges are just collecting credits in order to show you their site or offer. They are not paying much attention to what is on their screen as they surf.
The second reason is subconscious. Even though they may not actually pay attention to the banners and texts in front of them their subconscious mind sees it!
Later when they see you ads elsewhere they may think “This looks familiar, I have seen this person before.” The importance of this that people buy from those they know, like, and trust! The more advertising you put out there the better the chance they will join your site or buy your product.
I know this from my own personal experience. Many time when I have taken a look at a site I think to myself, “I think I am already a member there.” So I click the login link and if I discover that I am not a member I join! Somehow, somewhere that site was imprinted on my subconscious.
In order to increase the number of banners and text ads circulating at my site, Tornado Traffic, I will offer you an incentive.
If you read this and either login or join and add banners and text ads I will reward you for your efforts. For every text ad or banner you add and add impressions, I will add 500 impressions. If you have a paid upgrade I will double that to 1000 impressions.
Just add your text ads and banners and send in a support ticket with the subject, “I added”, along with the links you added, and I will add your impressions
