Local love!

Posted by



Over the years we have been in a LOT of national news but nothing really local.  Mostly because here in Lincoln I have always kept a pretty low profile…  But now with the book out all of that has changed.

A couple weeks ago a reporter from the Omaha World Herald came down and interviewed me.  Then she interviewed a lot of other people about me…  including my wife… EEK!

The article was on the front page of the money section in the print edition and front page over all all day on the website.

Here is the article

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news. All your financial, family and personal success has been because your mom is so well liked. She’s really the only reason we support you.

    Very nice article! I enjoyed reading and I hope a lot of people continue to get excited about your new book!

    Though I see your wife would really prefer her colleagues don’t read his book. That’s as humbling as my wife is :)

    Keep spreading the word!

    The article is really cool. I am glad J get’s good props in it.

    Your story really deserved the book, and I am so glad the local media shows what you have accomplished.

    This is an interesting article. I get to see another glimpse of your life. I am really surprised about your job history. I would have thought you would have been more disciplined.

    I do wonder though are there opportunities to get somewhere near where your at in today’s age. I am not all convinced that there is but I am going to try and see where I can get. I find that the internet has matured like the article says and I think what once was is no more. However, I am not going to stop but I do wonder how would those who found success would play the game today.

      Lol – what you talking about mina :)

      “I do wonder though are there opportunities to get somewhere near where your at in today’s age.”

      Shoemoneys two most successful achivements (auctionads, par program) — only started this year – or a few years ago.

      His other things – the affiliate marketing, the adsense, the “gimmicks” — were never a real business.

      It’s only just now shoemoney has changed and started real companies.

      As long as you have the idea – the drive to complete the idea, and the knowledge to get your idea used by people — of course it’s not too late for you to copy shoemoney :)

    Ohhh man do you think you really wanted people locally to know who you are and what you do. I do not want the fame to go to your head now when people recognize you ;)

    very cool. Im glad Nebraska took a step in this direction, as far as thinking outside the box goes. It can get pretty stuffy here sometimes. Thanks for breaking the mold shoe.
