A Baby Boomer born in the late 50s, David Goldstein grew up in North Hollywood, California. He was naturally attracted to the entertainment business – specifically, the music business, working as a Recording Engineer and Songwriter and taking a job at A&M Records, where he got a first-hand look at the business, even connecting with many of the label’s artists and executives – which is a long story for another time. Working in Los Angeles at some of the top recording studios during the 70s and 80s, David contributed to albums for some of the most influential recording artists and producers of all time, including Grammy award winners Gloria Gaynor, Peaches and Herb, Lee Ritenour, members of Earth, Wind & Fire, Toto and songwriter/producer Freddie Perren.
In 1991, after relocating to St. Louis, Missouri David shifted his focus from music to the Internet, becoming a founding partner of one of the first web development firms in the mid-west, Activated Multimedia. His experience working with cutting-edge technology in the music business helped him grasp the new technologies being introduced with the internet. Activated Multimedia grew over the decade that followed and was acquired by a large Mid-west advertising agency in 2000. Around the same time, David co-founded an online education business, Express Schools, LLC, through which he ran multiple learning platforms including RealEstateExpress.com and LicenseTutor.com, the first online real estate education websites in the US. These businesses were sold in 2013 in a strategic acquisition by a large online learning group.
In 2012, David left St. Louis and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. Looking for a small business he could run from home, he purchased LearnBonds.com, a website dedicated to publishing news and educational financial content. He and his wife Alice, along with a team of international writers, published thousands of articles over the five years that followed, selling the business in 2018.
A self-taught internet entrepreneur, David Goldstein had to conduct extensive research into every new venture, learning the technology as he went and then staying apprised of the latest trends in order to maintain his position in the market. The research that he did was extensive, and because of those skills, he has become adept at looking into new products and services in-depth and writing rich and incisive reviews. He understands how to pull the key details out of any topic, communicating them, and putting them into practice.
David’s purchase of HousingForSeniors.com in 2014 represented a major shift in his focus, his attention turning to the needs of Baby Boomers and other senior adults. Through this acquisition, he began to develop content that seniors and Baby Boomers could connect with on a personal level, focusing on housing, health, finance, and lifestyle. A Boomer himself, he found that interest in these topics came naturally to him, and because of that in conjunction with his propensity for effective research, he quickly built HousingForSeniors.com into a thriving enterprise.
Expanding his reach into the senior market in 2019, David launched ChicagoSeniorLiving.com, a website that caters to Baby Boomers living in Chicago and the surrounding communities. Content includes senior health, senior finance, and of course, travel – a passion of his and his favorite pastime until COVID-19 put a pause on it. He and Alice also went on a dozen relief trips to Kosovo with Service International during the post-war crisis there.
An expert at product and service reviews, David has launched BoomerBuyerGuides.com as a partnership with his wife Alice. Through this platform, Baby Boomers can find trustworthy, well-researched information about the products and services their peers have tried and loved.
Currently based in Las Vegas, David Goldstein is a father of two adult children, both of whom live in Southern California. He is a partner at Wolf Revo, LLC.
