That's me with my wife Linda and Adam, our new arrival :-)
I met Linda in Ohio (where she's from) and we now live in England (where I'm from) with Adam who weighed in at 7 lbs 1 oz on 4th August 2000. What an incredible experience that was!
I hold a Ph.D in Cancer Research, specifically how human breast cancer cells become resistant to anticancer drugs. I've made a PDF version of the thesis... if you'd like to see it, just right click here and select Save Target As. You'll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the PDF file, and the password "access". The file is just under 4Mb and will take a while to download on a dial-up connection.
I studied for my Ph.D at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, Scotland. Here's some information about what I did in the ICRF Molecular Pharmacology Unit. The ICRF has since merged with the Cancer Research Campaign to create Cancer Research UK... so I've taken screenshots from the ICRF report and placed them on this website.
Previous to living in Dundee, I also worked in labs in Toledo, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois. To see my scientific paper from work in Chicago, click here.
I've always been fascinated by the Internet. It's an amazing tool for writing and selling informational products (e-books) and software. You can make a lot of money when your product costs nothing to produce and nothing to ship! I've been doing just that since 1996!
In 1997 I started work on the ScamFreeZone, a consumer protection resource, to try to help combat the huge number of scams online. It's very successful, and is now ranked in the top 3,000 websites for traffic, according to Alexa.com.
Not long after creating the ScamFreeZone in 1997, I started the "Internet Success Newsletter". It's now in it's fifth year...that's an eternity online! Over 38,000 subscribers get three short InfoShocks in each newsletter, delivered every Friday. If you'd like a subscription, for free, just fill in this form...

I wrote the "Internet Success Blueprint" to share the success I've discovered with people who want to use the power of the Internet to earn money online. As part of my background reading, I've purchased every similar e-book I could find. I know that my e-book has several unique features that make it a totally original product. You won't find such a simple and powerful success blueprint anywhere...especially at just $27!
In 1999 I launched an associate program to help people benefit from selling my ebook to others. It's been a phenomenal success! I spoke about it as one of a panel of "merchant experts" at the Internet.com Affiliate Solutions 2001 Seminar in London on February 14th along with famous affiliate expert Declan Dunn.
Recently I've added more product to the "Internet Success" lineup. In April 2001, I launched Internet Success Diamonds which contains the top three success secrets from TEN of the top Internet marketers. The line-up has to be seen to be believed. Already Michael Campbell, author of "Nothing But Net" has called it "one of the most powerful ebooks ever written"!
In May 2001, I launched Internet Success Spider, a truly original piece of software that tracks down SUPER Affiliates for any site you choose. This tool allows you to find the professionals..the people online who really know how to make sales. "Spider" also comes with my "Irresistible Formula" report which explains and illustrates how to get Super Affiliates to work with you. Allan Gardyne, of AssociatePrograms.com said of the report, "Neil, you certainly know EXACTLY how to charm super affiliates". With this "double whammy" of software and report, anyone can find Super Affiliates to help them generate phenomenal sales!
All three products are part of my associate program which pays out 50% on all products.
In June 2001, I sent out the first Internet Success Snippet, powerful little infotips, just for my customers.
In July 2001, the "Internet Success Forum" launched, as did the hub site, "Internet Success Portal", and my consultancy service, "Internet Success Consultant"!
In February 2002, I launched "Yahoo Exposed", a small ebook which details how I went from nothing to a website with a number one ranking at Yahoo (for a search term I chose) in just 14 days! Yahoo Exposed was a great success! People loved to buy the reprint rights for just $49 and sell Yahoo Exposed at their site and keep all the profits!
In partnership with a professional voice-over artist, Peter Twist, we launched "Internet Success Interviews" in March 2002... people really like to HEAR the information directly from the experts... and Peter did a great job interviewing them!
In the summer of 2002, I offered 101 of my short sharp marketing articles for free in the re-brandable ebook, 101. It's free to read and give away. People love the layout which is unlike most other ebooks. :-)
More recently, in November 2002 I launched my Private Site containing huge amounts of top-quality marketing info and experts standing by to help people sell their products and services. It's been a big hit and some people have referred to it as the best Internet marketing site online!
So that's it!
I'm busy answering customer emails and sending regular bulletins to my newsletter subscribers, customers and associates. I hope to welcome you as one of those soon! :-)
Since 2006 I've been writing informative posts at my NeilShearing.com blog, which I hope you'll find interesting and sometimes amusing. :)
