What I learned at Shoemoney University

SMS Text

As many of you already know I am currently a senior in college and have around 9 classes left. Some people think I must graduate even if it takes me a couple more years to finish and others say I should drop out. And then there’s [Jeremy Schoemaker](http://www.shoemoney.com) who told me to drop out of my current college and attend University of Nebraska, Shoemoney (UNSM); so I decided to take Jeremy up on his offer and attend his university for a few days. Here are some of the things that I have learned from Jeremy:
* How to easily make 1,000 dollars a day (if not a lot more) from PPC arbitrage. The only upfront cost involves building a landing page, potentially putting up a website or two and spending a few bucks on PPC with Google, Yahoo and MSN.
* There are 3 categories for marketing: white, grey, and black. When you do marketing you never want to go into the black range because it could lead to jail time, but according to Shoemoney, there is nothing wrong with doing some grey stuff if it does not hurt anyone and has the potential to create a lot of buzz.
* Companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have certain rules that protect them, but these things can actually be used against them to help you make money.
And just like any university, the experience is what truly makes it a great college:
* Business trips – Jeremy picked me up in his [hummer](http://www.hummer.com/) from the airport and showed me all the fun things you can do in the snow with a H2 such as jumping over curbs, sliding on ice, and ramming into the snow.
* Business meetings – One day we had a business lunch at [Hooters](http://www.hooters.com/) where we learned that Hooters waitresses live off of tips. Eating at Hooters is a great way to make sure that the meeting does not get dull.
* Opportunity cost – Some things are not worth doing yourself such as washing dishes or cleaning the house. If you can make a couple hundred an hour why not work those extra hours and pay people to do all the work you don’t want to do.
* There is no such thing as a free lunch – Everything I did in Nebraska was paid for by Jeremy and J (his wife). I tried to pay for meals and stuff, but Jeremy said that if I tried to pull that stuff off he would get very upset with me. So after trying to pay a couple times he told me that I should not worry about it because when he comes to Los Angeles I am going to be spending a lot more money wining and dinning him.
Overall, I learned a lot from my experience at UNSM and feel that it was a better learning experience for me compared to any of my current college classes. I will still probably end up getting a bachelors degree, but hopefully one day there will be a college like UNSM that will be available to everyone who wants to learn how to make money online. At least for now you can get some of this great knowledge from Jeremy Schoemaker by attending [Elite Retreat](http://www.eliteretreat.info/).
