My 1000th Post! Thank You (+ Interview with Shoemoney)

by Stanley Tang 51 replies
Finally, my 1000th post milestone.

It just made me think what a journey I've gone through over the past few years...

I've been a member for more than 2 years now. Back then, I was just this 13-year-old kid who knew nothing about internet marketing. Still remember the good old days when WSOs were still free I was playing around with stuff like web design, html and javascript on angelfire and geocities since I was 10, but never really focused on marketing. And the warrior forum changed it all.

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,

~Stanley Tang

    Congratulations.

    You're an early mover, I find it hard to believe that you're only 15 years old, There are tons of people who are twice and three times your age that have struggled with IM and have long since given up and gone back to their day job.

    Congrats on your 1,000th post and on making 5 figures at 15!

    I wish I knew what the heck IM was at 13, I wouldn't of spent all those years playing hours and hours of online video games. IM is like my new online video game, your characters have stats and everything...but the money is REAL!

    Great interview though btw
    Which is basically internet marketing. He said it in the interview himself that he considered himself an internet marketer. Internet marketing isn't just about creating "make money online info products".

    I guess what you meant was you wouldn't call shoemoney an internet marketing "guru"

        Yup. Been saving since day 1 (although I probably won't need it cause my parents have been doing that too since day 1). I feel lucky that my parents have always been 100% supportive and encourages me to get involved in those kinda things. Plus, it looks good on my CV for uni application

      You have my respect! When I was 15 I was stealing hub caps off of cars and siphoning gas so I could chase around and tear up my father's car.

      I wonder what my life would be like now if I had taken your ambitious route at 15? Of course we didn't have computers...in fact, we didn't have TV's. Yikes!

      Keep up the good work!

      Definitely not... no "blueprint" book will simply give you "the secret" that will pour cash into your pockets. It took me 8 months of playing around, trial and error and perseverance until I made my first $1000. I believe that you first need to have the right mindset. If you come into this trying to look for that "blueprint" which will give you everything and don't bother trying to actually think and take action, then you won't get anywhere.
