It just made me think what a journey I've gone through over the past few years...
Since then, theres been many ups, downs, periods when I wanted to give up internet marketing completely... many people who were in the same situation as me would have probably given up, but I guess my persistence and perseverance pulled me through.
Probably the biggest obstacle any teenage entrepreneur faces is trying to balance between school and business. Homework just takes up soooo much time, making it impossible to concentrate fully on my business. Any teenagers here will probably understand what I'm talking about (I know there are at least a few dozens of you out there). But here I am having made 5 figures in my first year online and still doing well at school.
Right now, I'm working on my upcoming book called eMillions: Behind-The-Scenes Stories of 14 Internet Millionaires. It's going to be a real print book thats going to be available in bookstores (since I got bored with writing ANOTHER ebook). Part of the project was to go out there and interview some of the most successful internet marketers (such as Mark Joyner, Michel Fortin, Willie Crawford, Yanik Silver - many of which I've been able to connect through the warrior forum). I know it's sort of been a "tradition" to give away cool stuff when you hit a milestone.
So I guess what I'm going to do is to just give away an entire interview I've conducted with Jeremy Schoemaker, aka Shoemoney. For those of you who don't know him, this guy is truly a legendary internet marketer and blogger. In fact, his blog is in the top 50 on technorati. Anybody who's been in the blogsphere will know what a feat that is.
The interview was actually pretty long (8,000 words) so I decided to just break it up into three small digestible chunks. The first part is here:
Interview With Shoemoney (Part 1)
EDIT: Part 2 is up: Interview with Shoemoney (Part 2)
SECOND EDIT: Part 3 is up: Interview with Shoemoney (Part 3)
I'll be releasing part 2 tomorrow, and part 3 the day after. I apologize if the formatting is a little "messy". I wasn't planning to give this away; it was just something I decided to do today after I realized I've hit the 1000 milestone.
It's been awesome to be part of this amazing community. Many of the relationships I have built over the past few years all started here in the warrior forum.
So I just really want to say thank you to ALL of you for helping me get to where I am today.
To your success,
