What is nshaw.com?
And why should I care?
It’s simple. This is my little corner of the Internet. Specifically, this is my place to post long-form content that doesn’t fit on Twitter. I write mostly about business and finance, but occasionally random thoughts on sports or other topics. My style is straightforward and blunt. True story … I once got docked in a Ph.D. class for stating things too clearly. 😂
I don’t post on a specific schedule, but the plan is once or twice a week. The format is Q&A. Basically I’m posting answers to the most common questions I’ve gotten over the years.
I’ll post a more detailed bio later. Here’s a short summary until then. Grew up in a small town in East Texas and went to college at Texas Tech. Worked in IT for years. Eventually started my own software company. Sold it and retired in my 40s.
Throughout my career, and especially building my business, I learned a ton from reading on the Internet. This Substack is part of my way of giving back. There are lots of things I’ve learned over the years through hard experience, both good and bad. I enjoy writing, and I want to share those things with family, friends, or anyone who has an interest.
Money is not my goal. Everything here is free. Views/clout are also not my goal. If even one person reads what I write and benefits from it, it’s worth it to me. So sign up and share if you find the content useful.
All the best,
