Pursue Your Dreams In a Funky Micro Business


When you are on a correct path, it is never too late to pursue your dreams in your own micro business.  See below how to use music and light to be smarter in life, business and investing.

An August 23, 2011 New York Times article by Ruth La Ferla entitled “At 90, Fashion’s Latest Pop Star” tells the story of Iris Apfel who finally became a star at age 90.

The article:  HER spectacles, as round as soup tureens, lend Iris Apfel a startled look. If she seems surprised, she has good reason. Mrs. Apfel, the subject of a string of museum exhibitions, a coffee table book and even a fashion advertising campaign, has long been a magnet to aficionados, those devotees of fashion who dote on her style — a more-is-more mix of haute couture and hippie trimmings that appears at a glance to have been blended in a Cuisinart.
But now, at 90, she seems baffled, and clearly tickled, to find herself on the cusp of pop stardom, an unlikely celebrity whose fame has been constructed almost entirely around her look. “I’m a geriatric starlet, my dear, don’t you know,” she said the other day. Relaxing in her Park Avenue apartment, a visual feast of cabbage rose patterns, paisleys and brocades, she added, “All of a sudden, I’m hot; I’m cool; I have a ‘fan base.’ ”

How do we determine or find that correct path?   Judging by the number of questions I receive on “Where do I start?”  this question stumps a lot of  readers. 
Whether you are 20 or 90, there are many ways to create a joyful lifestyle… that pays its way…  using the intelligence beyond logic that we all have. 

One simple way to start is to get in tune with nature.

For example nothing in the business books will tell you to face east and to try to be at work during the sunrise.  Yet when you do… the types of ideas you need specifically for your success… are most likely to arise.

For example here’s my office view as the sun rises in North Carolina about this time of year.

Many years ago Merri and I lived for a winter with a Taita Yatchak and his apprentices. We lived as they did, without electricity, hot water or even a roof over our heads at night. We took all the shamanic lessons as they came… and one lesson we were taught was how to attract abundance.  The Yatchak used to say visualize Golden Orange… the color of abundance.

Vedic traditions also always face the office towards the east.

Sunrise at our Florida home…

and the sunset filling our house with golden orange… frequencies of wealth… evenings and morn.

Here is the view I see as I type away in our Cotacachi, Ecuador penthouse around 6 in the morn.

universal-frequency

There are message in these frequencies that we cannot easily explain through language… but what science has shown is that frequency, especially in the range we call “light” has an enormous impact on the pineal gland… which is composed of cells similar to the retina.

Looking at this in a Western scientific way we can see how frequency has an impact on our endocrine system.

One way to view everything in the universe is as a bundle of frequency.  All matter and energy differ only by the numbers of frequencies involved.  Thus everything in and out of our body impacts everything else… in major or minor ways based on tone, beat, rhythm, volume, frequency.

Take for example, the human body when it hears a lullaby at around 60 decibels and the body relaxes and shifts into a healthier state from these subtle frequency energies.

Someone who hears the same lullaby at 180 decibels goes deaf instantly and that is the least of it. The force of the sound waves would liquefy the bowels, and the listener dies in a puddle of diarrhea.

Frequencies we call light are so important to our actions because they indirectly impact the pituitary gland, often called the master gland which directs the actions of the endocrine system. Light’s circuitous route is via the hypothalamus which in turn gets its instructions from the pineal gland.

Light and the pineal are really important because the pineal gland is located in the brain between the two hemispheres. Unlike much of the rest of the mammalian brain, the pineal gland is not isolated from the body by the blood-brain barrier system but has a profuse blood flow, second only to the kidney. So the pineal’s activity affects blood and brain chemistry simultaneously.

The pineal gland is composed of cells similar to those of the retina called pinealocytes and cells of the nervous system called glial cells. The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts light to nerve signals from the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.

Outside frequency… at ranges we call “sound” and/or “light” or “electro magnetic force” also entrain the hypothalamus, pituitary, and pineal glands.  The conductor of the endocrine system is our own inner intelligence (a bundle of frequencies) influenced by the outer universal intelligence (a bigger bundle of frequencies).

The endrocrine system is viewed as the biochemical key to health in the same way that the nervous system is the key to the electro. In reality, the functions of these two systems are so interrelated that they can essentially be referred to as one system: the neuroendocrine system and all electrical and chemical activity can be viewed as frequencies.

Frequencies (in ranges called sound, light or electro magnetic) simultaneously impact the nervous and endocrine system.  This creates lightening quick electrical impulses that the endocrine system quickly communicates with neurochemical hormones.

Both forms of communication can control and coordinate millions of functions in the body every second.

The manufacture of hormones by the endocrine system allows it to regulate the metabolic function of every system, organ, tissue, and cell in the body. Essentially, these hormones are chemical messengers that allow the intelligence of the body to create a balanced internal environment.

Ancient healers recognized that different glands and organs responded to different frequencies.

For example the pineal gland is activated by the highest pitch (light) than the pituitary and thyroid gland. The thymus gland, centrally located at the heart of the endocrine system, is in the midrange, while the pancreas, adrenal glands, the sex glands are activated by the lower ranges.

Cultures have recognized the importance of these ranges in music  for many centuries.   You will find high pitch plain chant music that masters developed to awaken spirituality and our connection with the higher levels of the universe.  Here is a sample of spiritual music.

But the wise people also recognized that low pitched, heavy beat music like the Sexual Earthquake in Kobe could be used to manipulate and excite the more physical aspects of our nature.

In short the endocrine system corresponds to differently to certain tonal and light frequencies. Specific musical tones… specific colors… strengthen the endocrine system and also lead to specific ranges of influence within the body created by powerful hormones that circulate the bloodstream. Much of the power and energy generated by the human body is created in the endocrine system as it transforms the inner with universal subtle energy fields.

The ancients recognized that one avenue available to humans, to activate the wiser… less limited brain waves was through the third eye (pineal gland).  It is attributed to initiating psychic powers and perceiving higher dimensions. The ancients learned that a greater field of intelligence could be unlocked when the pituitary and pineal are entrained to vibrate in unison and learned to achieve this through meditation, chanting and sungazing.

When a correct relationship is established between the personality, operating through the pituitary, and universal frequencies, operating through the pineal, a magnetic field is created. The pineal can generate its own magnetic field because it contains magnetite. This field can interact with the earth’s magnetic field. The solar wind at dawn, charging the earth’s magnetic field, stimulates the pineal gland. This is why the period between 4 and 6 am is the best time to meditate and why sunrise is the best time to sungaze. At these times, the pineal stimulates the pituitary to secrete the Human Growth Hormone. This is why watching the sun rise not only makes you more intuitive but will also enhance muscle growth, skin tone, rapid nail and hair growth, restoration of hair color and general rejuvenation.

At dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary combine their essences to create a “light in the head” while meditating. This light has been seen by mystics, initiates, prophets and shamans throughout the ages. They refer to it as the Experience of God or of a universal intelligence.

The Western scientific mind set does not focus on enhancing ourseleves in this way… though Dr. Lozanov and the Eastern bloc did. The West has used the tyranny of reason to block access to greater intuitive intelligence.

We often have to go beyond the Western educational system to shift our consciousness and lifestyle to actively exercise our full human potential and understand the path that is best for us.  One way to step beyond any social mindsets that are desined to lock us into a routine or rat race is to start our day with meditation, 60 cycle music and a sunrise.

Native and Aboriginal people have known this intuitively for thousands of years: Sound and light are very powerful. As the expression of number in space, geometry is inextricably linked to sight and sound.

Sixty cycle music and the sunrise have the power to open our pineal.  Combined they can bring you the intentions of freedom and deep harmony allowing the energy of action while erasing the lethargy of doubt.

Learn how to use meditation and sixty cycle music in business and investing.  Join us in North Carolina for our October 7-8-9 Quantum Wealth Through International Business & Investing.

We have been incorporating the ideas of using frequency for Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades… but our  October 7-8-9 2011 devotes an entire workshop to this portion of the course.

These golden colors make me think of a golden rule of investing is that there is always some fact we do not know.

The uncertainty principle that is a core component of our universe… means we cannot be certain of any investment… any factany future. I guess this means we cannot even be certain of uncertainty, but I highly recommend that you expect it in forms we cannot even imagine… volcanoes shutting down the system. Greece going broke… maybe Spain, Portugal, Italy and even the USA as well.   Then expect something else unexpected to take place will have an impact… good or bad on your  savings, job, business, savings wealth and investments.

These unknowns can work in our favor!   Realize that there are millions of ways that good fortune can become bestowed up you.

Merri and I believe in uncertainty and respect the limits of logic so we use many tactics to think, act, live, do business and invest beyond logic.

First, we put our relation with our Faith, our family and our health ahead of money. Without these foundations it is hard to be grounded… to resist greed and fear and to put emphasis on service, sustainability and fulfillment ahead of cash.

Second, we make sure our main investment is on our own business. Investments in shares or bonds and such are backup.  They rely on a social contract that has been ripped to shreds by massive debt globally. This means that all investments are at risk in ways we cannot know.

In our own business we can do something about the product or service we provide.  We still cannot be certain in business… but in business we can be more certain than in investments where we are not involved.

Third, we invest in what we know…. as often as possible with people we like and trust. Investments beyond business rely on a system, an idea and the people involved. The more you know about the people and the idea… the better.

Next we look for ways to tap the infinite wisdom that is within all people… to connect with that unbounded portion of our being that’s in the cosmic state. We all spring from this infinite source… we are of it.  Our logic just cannot compute infinity in symbolic form.  To try is like processing a terabyte of data with a 16K processor (even worse actually).

One way we do this is through Vedic Astrology. Learn more about Vedic Astrology at Blaine Watson’s seminar  September 23-24-25, 2011 Investing & Business Beyond Logic. See details here.

We have to find ways to get in touch with our greater intelligence and learn how to see, hear, feel, taste and smell tiny bits of data in ways that our dimwitted brains can use.

We live in an uncertain world. I cannot be totally certain but believe that risk and the unknown are almost guaranteed. However we spring from infinite wisdom and we can let this unbelievably smart stuff we are made of filter through.  We cannot think what pops up in words. We cannot force it to make sense… but we can use tactics like wealth beyond logic tactics Merri and I use to let our innate wisdom direct us so we enjoy 300% of life… health, wealth and fulfillment.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

Here are seven secrets that can help you earn as a writer and self publisher.  

gary scott

When you write, you can work anywhere.  Here I am working in my greenhouse.

Gain the freedom  to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.

These seven secrets are important because growing numbers of unknown writers have become famous writers and rich by self publishing over the internet.

Take for example Amanda Hocking.  After self publishing her first book at Amazon.com in the spring of 2010 she became one of the the best-selling e-authors. In the next year her book sales grossed approximately $2 million.

In 2011, St. Martin’s press paid Hocking more than $2 million for the world English rights of a four book series.  In 2013 she sold another series to St. Martin’s Press.

E.L. James is another such story.  She sold 250,000 copies of “50 Shades” via Createspace and Amazon.com before publishers noticed her and published the erotic romance trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed which sold over 70 million copies worldwide, setting the record as the fastest selling paperback of all time.

Hugh Howey is a third example.  He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks. Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon. This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

Hugh Howey

I know Hugh.  Sometimes we get together at my  farm and play chess (he beats me badly).

These writers are great inspirations.

Hugh’s success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.

Neither you or I are likely to have this type of success. The good news is… we do not need this type of success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing offers so many opportunities that one can have a life that most people only dream of as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like those of Hugh Howey or E.L James or Amanda Hocking rarely explain how many hours of writing each devoted before their self published book sales soared.  They were journeymen first… stars second.

The sevens secrets are the journeyman secrets… call them a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for more than 40 years, year in a year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably for you too.  First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed Merri and me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following our adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

That’s what self publishing can bring, profit, adventure and fulfillment, a great feeling of worth and wonder.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world and work with meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form and the seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.  Everything seems new… except the seven secrets.  Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love it due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted in life. Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets on writing to sell.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whip Lash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings.  I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

I’m passionate about investing, so I write and self publish ideas about investing.  Merri and I love Ecuador… so we wrote about Ecuador.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues?  You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place?  Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  To be immersed in our passion and get paid well for it.  That usually enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

In 1974,  I had a business that never got ahead. I was almost penniless, in debt and living from hand to mouth.  Then I discovered these seven secrets.  They helped me write and sell book after book and report after report.  Since then, our self publishing business has brought in millions.

One key to building a successful self publishing business is to use the Golden Rule of Simplicity and the 7Ps to create your publication.  The premise behind the Golden Rule is that if you have a passion… you have a problem.  Your problem is a desire to fill.

The Golden rule of writing uses a writer’s desire as a compass to direct the creation and sale of the publication.

Here is the Golden Rule of Simplicity:  Your Desires Are in Others.  Your Desires ID Markets.  Your Habits Reveals Pathways.  Your Emotions Create Stories.  Your Demands Create Publications.

This creative pathway works whether your publication is written by hand and sold on the street corner or published for Kindle at Amazon.com. These simple but basic fundamentals guide the creation of your works whether you use the most sophisticated equipment and algorithms  or are totally low tech.

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500. 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity called “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.”  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You can receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in a special “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for the written course and $299 for the recorded workshop.   I’ll send you both the course and the recorded workshop and my course “International Business Made EZ (also $299) all for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

These courses are not theoretical.  They describe, step-by-step, how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business and how we are running this self publishing business right now.   We use the 7Ps today just as we did four decades ago to create a strong annual income.

This correspondence course is for those who would like their own international self publishing micro business for fun and profit. If you want fun, freedom, extra income and fulfillment with your own full or part time writing or want to build your existing business, by writing to sell you can profit from this course.  The course can help who want their own business or who want to have a business together or a family business.  This is the perfect course for those who can no longer find employment, who are looking for ways to earn abroad and who wish to retire and supplement their income.

Whether you are retired, an investor, chiropractor, doctor, dentist, professional or already own your own business, this offers another way to make money, to turn your passion into profit. We guarantee that we have shared all we know to help you start and run your own international business.  Enjoy and live a life of following your Passion to Profit… through writing.

Here is a special offer.  We provide two emailed courses  “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

You save more than $598 because you also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster David Cross (at no extra cost).
