The @ShoeMoney System & me

I’ve been meaning to write this review and insight of the ShoeMoney System for quite some time, but have felt as though I’ve been too busy to actually put any thought into a quality post. Something I’m trying to do more of. Quality over quantity (which goes somewhat against my 2010 goals). There’s no doubt that you’re probably wondering “what is the ShoeMoney System” and more importantly, why do I care.

Let me backup a little bit and give you some history. Just over a year ago I joined Twitter and began adding friends and just getting lost in various users through other peoples tweets. I stumbled across this guy who went by the name “ShoeMoney” and was intrigued. I read his bio (always something good to have if you want Twitter followers), and clicked through to his website. Well it was at this point in seeing his Google Adsense check for $132,994.97 that I realized I’d seen this bum guy before when doing some research. I started reading his blog and found out a little bit more about him. I got so lost and mezmerized that I almost forgot to follow @ShoeMoney on Twitter.

It all made sense on the “ShoeMoney” name. Jeremy Shoemaker, who coincidentally doesn’t make shoes, was a money making machine. Jeremy Schoemaker (the correct spelling of his last name) and I had several conversations on Twitter about a few things here and there. If he only knew how excited I was that an “online celebrity” was tweeting with me in conversation (kind of like what just happened with Lisa Barone & Rae Hoffman).

Well I’ve followed him ever since and in November of 2009 had the privilege to meet him and have a quick chat at DK‘s Purpose Inc. poker tournament at PubCon Las Vegas. (I really actually need to thank my friends Lyndsay Walker & Lyndon Reid for making that trip happen). It was a quick, but friendly chat. Shoe, as his friends apparently refer to him (not sure I can get away with it—yet), was friendly and approachable. I’m glad that my gut instinct was right through only some select tweets.

Fast forward to a few months ago and Jeremy was getting ready to launch the ShoeMoney System. The teaser videos were awesome and because I had the chance to chat with Jeremy in person, I knew that any content he would produce would be first rate. I was hooked. I watched the previews, signed up on the mailing list, joined a webinar and even signed up as an affiliate to promote the ShoeMoney System. YES, I was sure it was going to be that good. The price came down and calculating it with incentives and bonus gifts, Jeremy was actually going to be paying me to take the ShoeMoney System. Only 500 students were going to be accepted so I was going to act fast. Alas I had to cough up some cash up front, which makes perfect sense, but I wasn’t in a position to do so. It’s not that expensive—just $197USD a month for twelve months. That’s a screaming deal…but I just wasn’t there.

A couple of weeks ago some clients of SPRY had finally paid up their account and to my surprise the unthinkable happened. The ShoeMoney System was re-opened to new students. NOW was my chance to get in on the content the ShoeMoney System could offer. I didn’t hesitate and signed up right away. There was no chance the system was going to fill up and close without me being in it for a second time.

It was one week ago today that I got on board. I blew through the first couple of videos as I’d seen one as the teaser and the other was fairly high-level. I was eager to get more videos and they seemed quite slow. That is until now that I realized it’s only been one week and I’ve had an extra two. The pace seems good with a “real job” going on, family life, travel, etc. I’ve got a bunch of experience in the web design/development area and have briefly touched on some affiliate marketing concepts (yes, the site is about winning blackjack strategies) and even a bit of SEO (again, thanks Lyndsay). I eagerly await a new video and email from the ShoeMoney System every day so that I can work towards my goal to generate $80,000 online by September 15.

I’ll be keeping you posted with my progress and any information that I feel like sharing. I know that with Shoemoney and his team creating and testing the content, that there’s no better course out there for a beginner or advanced user or anywhere in between. My recommendation to you is to figure it out, get the cash and just enroll in the ShoeMoney System TODAY! Tomorrow, you can thank me for it.

Let’s get infected

I keep forgetting about what a great inspirational website ted.com is. At first I tried to figure out who this Ted guy was. Then I decided I’d just do a little digging. Wouldn’t you know it’s an acronym. Directly from their website:

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year’s TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.

Well today while I was killing some time on Twitter I came across and interesting tweet from TEDxCalgary. Take a few minutes to watch the inspirational video below.

What I found interesting about the segment is that it’s all true. 100% accurate that it simply takes an “I can” attitude. I don’t find it a coincidence that today I was also reading about Someday Never Comes by John Chow while reading his free ebook. His opening paragraph sums it up:

Do you know how to tell a successful person from a unsuccessful one? The easiest way is by the language they use. When you talk to a successful person about his goals, he’ll tell you what he plans to do and when it will be done. When an unsuccessful person talks about his goals (assuming he even has one), you’ll hear something along the lines of, “I hope to do this someday.” Here’s a clue for all you losers out there; someday never comes.

That’s right. It’s there in black and white. And it’s something I’ve known for some time. Nobody will do it for me. I must do it myself. Not only that but I can do it. It was clear to me when I set out to run my first full marathon. I completed it because I had the “I can” bug, not the “I will”. It was a goal. A clearly defined gem with an end time limit defined along with some other contributing parameters. So I know goals work for me when I set them. I’ve even commented on other peoples posts about setting my goals, but where are they?

Well, it’s time to stop doing everything right now and write out some goals. I’m logging of Twitter, stopping iTunes and ignoring email (which I’m pretty good at thanks to Tim Ferriss).

I’m going to write some goals, and then copy Lyndon and share them with you for you to help hold me accountable. I hope that you can help me with that?

The Money’s in the Shoe

A few years ago I stumbled upon an interesting image of a dude holding a Google AdSense payout cheque over $120,000 USD. Just Google it and I’m sure you’ll find it. Fast forward to recent history and we’ll look at the fact I hopped on board this Twitter thing. That’s when I managed to come across his site again. ShoeMoney.com has been a regular site in my daily repetoir now…to the extent I even subscribed to his email list and ‘tweeted’ a bit with him on Twitter. It was actually thanks to a recent tweet that I found out about a webinar that he was putting on in conjunction with BigMarketingOnline.com and didn’t hesitate to signup for it and boy am I glad I did.

Am I actually supposed to work?

WOW! Two posts in one day so far?! Of course, if my boss happens to check the times on the posts I’m most likely screwed…good thing that he’s a good guy! I just spent a few minutes making minor tweaks to the site. I added some affiliate links on the sidebar – currently located on the left. Links for B & B Electronics, Cheap Caribbean Vacations, and of course WestJet were added. If you happen to purchase anything through one of these links, a portion of the proceeds go to help end world poverty by 2025 through The Millennium Project.

I’m also hoping to tweak my Google Adsense content over the next few days, into weeks, then into months and hopefully years even. I’ve been doing some searching about ways to optimize your site posts and get Google to show more relevant content to your site. So, I’m not going to go backwards and edit a number of posts, we’ll just continue forward and implement them. Of course, the most important thing to generate site revenue would be that of these little mysterious people we call site visitors or guests.

I prefer guests to my site. Of course, this may be a part of the WestJet way of thinking, but I’d like to think that someone feels welcomed when they sit down at my site and begin to read. I don’t want a bunch of clutter, or other pointless things floating around…though I guess that’s why they’re here in the first place. My pointless thoughts! I used to have a blog by that name, but it got old, hijacked and spammed to death. So now I sit here, simply writing and hoping that the mysterious little guests will show up. And somehow, some way the little mysterious Google AdSense bot will hit my page regularly, and update the AdSense content accordingly and that people will click on the ads and generate some revenue so that it can be donated to The Millennium Project.

As a bit of a side note, I cannot tell you to click on the AdSense ads, so I’m not telling you or asking you to do so. If you see something that you’re genuinely interested in, then go for it! I do the same on other peoples sites — but never my own!

For some reason I really want to write today. I’m not sure about what, but I think that I need to come up with some sort of story. A subject. A character. Anything that will allow me to focus my energy and thoughts on that story instead of simple ramblings. Ideas? Suggestions? Of course you have them, so please just leave them in a comment. I look at all comments, and am very open to suggestions…you just have to leave them.
