This phrase can help you grow richer, feel better and be healthier… beginning right now.
Here I am working at home trying to explain the importance of this phrase “Go try things”… which sums up why you not only can but should gain the benefits of an international business.
Perhaps the importance of what should be shared began in Hong Kong about 44 years ago.
A warm South China Sea fog swept up the mid levels like a spider’s web in fast air. …then hung like a moist blanket over the thin ribbon of asphalt that snaked the ridgeline through the jungle ahead. Low city rumbles blunted the green tropical freshness and fought nature’s cacophony of dawn.
Bowen Road runs flat as a pancake through the mid-levels of Hong Kong. I lived there for several years decades ago and took early morning runs most days. Arriving shortly after my 21st birthday, my task was to build a sales team that sold American mutual funds to the Hong Kong Chinese. That turned out to be a bad idea. The Hong Kong market was booming and the US stock market dead. Yet just trying this, led me into the business of writing about how Americans could invest in Hong Kong. Many of my readers made fortunes and for me, a career was born.
A decade later after a move to London… distortions were spotted in the cost of Manx corporations. This led me shortly to the Isle of Man… overlooking Douglas Bay… a brisk ocean air off the harbor carried mournful seagull songs into our room at the Palace Hotel. I was looking for cheap corporations but found a real estate treasure instead. Years of real estate tours helped readers start businesses there and they picked up unimaginable profits… because we tried some new things.
However Britain’s gray winters soon drove me to the sun. I found myself watching sun rays sparkle on the emerald prisms of cool, spring fed pools. They reflected and danced, rainbows that glimmered on towering mahogany, banana, stately palm. Green vistas shimmered, easy paced in the afternoon sun and sweet, tropical perfumes floated in the breeze.
Merri, and I were sitting on a huge veranda, overlooking a vast expanse of lush, green, countryside watching our kids joyfully ride their horses up the mountains in the Dominican Republic. A tropical breeze flowed over the porch cooling the sunny afternoon. My portable laptop computer sat before me. Working, I had dozed off, lulled by katydid songs, the soft breeze and my lost thoughts. That was work and the sudden realization of how wonderful that work was shocked me into understanding that having an international business is the best way to security, wealth, freedom and fulfillment in life. That realization was the foundation of our seminars on how to have a micro business and that trip came because we were searching for new places and trying new things.
Since then thousands have attended or taken the correspondence version of this course all over the world. In the process of trying to find new places, 15 years ago we stumbled onto Ecuador… the best yet.
Our business has evolved over 44 years from Hong Kong to London to Europe to the Isle of Man to the Dominican Republic to Florida to North Carolina to Ecuador. Each time because we were trying things of interest and fascination to us. Not once did the business turn out how we expected… but always there was some success… happy customers…. good deeds…. great service… profit… fulfillment and adventure all originating from just trying some things.
Delegates to our seminars have improved their lives, gained greater independence, increased financial safety and dramatically gained more freedom to lead the type of life they desire…all because these delegates after our courses “go try things“.
So I sat straight up and started writing yesterday morning after sitting round the pool and reading the January 2012 USA Today article entitled “THEY WON’T QUIT” by Janice Lloyd which summed up the vast importance of trying and the benefits you can gain when you “go try things”.
The article is as follows (Bolds and underlines are mine): Experts say Baby Boomers are starting to work past conventional retirement age, a trend fueled by an uncertain economy, improved health in older life and an understanding that staying engaged leads to a better sense of well-being.
Hitting 65 and “getting the gold watch” is not on the must-do list anymore for many people, says Jacquelyn James, research director at the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College.
“Their emphasis isn’t just to keep working but to do things that add life to years and not years to life,” James says. “People who are very work-oriented and love their jobs don’t want to give them up, especially if they’re healthy.”
An April Gallup survey had similar findings: 534 working people were asked whether, when they reached retirement age, “you think you will continue working and work full-time; continue working and work part-time; or stop working altogether?” Those who answered that they would continue to work were then asked, “Would you do it because you want to, or because you will have to?”
•18% said they would work full-time, and a third of those said it was because they wanted to, not because they would have to.
•63% said they would work part-time; almost two-thirds of those said they would do it because they wanted to.
•18% said they would retire and stop working altogether.
The average age of retirement is 64 for men and 62 for women, according to an analysis of Census data by the Center for Retirement Research. Census data also show the number of Americans living to age 90 and beyond has tripled in the past three decades to almost 2 million and is likely to quadruple by 2050.
“People are beginning to realize that if you retire at age 60, you could easily spend 35 years in retirement,” says Richard Johnson, senior fellow and director of the program on retirement policy at the Urban Institute. “And that could get tedious.”
There are other reasons to stick it out. Job satisfaction grows with age, Johnson says: 90% of workers age 60 to 64 agree or strongly agree that they enjoy going to work, compared with 95% of workers 65 to 69 and 97% of workers age 70 and older, according to the Retirement Project of the Urban Institute.
Stress levels also drop on the job. About one of three workers age 70 and older agree or strongly agree their jobs involve a lot of stress, compared with more than half of workers age 60 to 64.
“There isn’t a script for 65 anymore. We recommend the same thing we tell people in their 20s: ‘Go try things.'”
This is why we would like to help you make your life better with a funky micro business and why we have expanded this focus in our business seminars.
The USA Today article goes on to point out: “People are being given rotten advice to slow down, take it easy, stop worrying and retire,” Friedman says. “The Longevity Project discovered that those who worked the hardest lived the longest — the responsible and successful achievers thrived in every way, especially if they were dedicated to things and people beyond themselves.
Learn how to create and enjoy your own funky micro business. You can gain “earning flexibility” so you can earn… mobile or not… full or part time… young or old. We have many boomers take our courses on how to write to sell. Other participants are in their 20s and 30s and want to get started while avoiding the rat race. Others in their 40s and 50s are looking for ways out of the rat race.
Technology and economically speaking, you have a a perfect time now to have your own micro business. Communications and computers do most of the work that previously required labor and staff. Outsourcing and virtual offices, plus internet marketing mean a one man (or woman or couple) show can accomplish incredible things.
Let’s Make Earning Easy
Our courses are highly practical and usable because they are a reflection of what we are doing… now. You won’t hear any ivory tower theory…. just the realities of business as we see them in the marketplace today… and how we respond to these conditions.
Sessions focus on how to use modern technology to start global micro businesses… that can create valuable extra income with minimal investments of time and capital.
You learn how to start small and build with stepping stones and a harmonious focus… how to build a successful at home business via the internet using several profit generating phrases at Google. You gain the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income as well at our seminar.
Our self publishing course shares how to use the first four of “Seven Ps” (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key word phrases. Then you learn how to use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P is the Prospecting Path and Seventh P is the Presentation to create income.
Then you gain all the facts on how to try the seven Ps in seven specific business sectors:
Funky Business Sector #1: How to create an export businesses. Exports are society’s great equalizer. As long as there are traditions, skill sets and productivity levels that vary… there will be imports and exports. Learn how to spot markets not products and buy low to sell high. An export business can turn every trip you take into a profitable venture and tax deductible expense free travel. Exports can help societies improve as they help create jobs… affluence and greater understanding by mankind of itself.
Funky Business Sector #2: How to earn from self publishing and writing. Many of us are a book or publication waiting to happen. Modern technology and ePublishing activity now favors the small guy. Learn how to write and self publish to sell for profit.
Funky Business Sector #3: How to create internet sales. The internet can support a business or can be a business.
Funky Business Sector #4: How to create a business in Ecuador or elsewhere. Learn ways to earn frm Ecuador exports and roses. See how to earn anywhere… even in really emerging places. For example, you’ll meet our meet our Cuban researcher and learn ideas for Cuban business.
Funky Business Sector #5: How to earn from organic food ideas and the natural health business. You learn ways to earn from naturally healthy products that Merri and I have used for decades.
Funky Business Sector #6 Earn from high finance. Our business sessions provide you a portal into the Jyske Introducer program… an income earning opportunity from Denmark’s second largest Danish bank.
Funky Business Ideas #7: Go Try Anything! Learn systems that work successfully on the internet for any type of business you want to try.
There are great opportunities for writers and micro businesses in the following markets:
Love-friendship-control-freedom-tradition-change-big answers-recognition and care. These are emotional needs that create expanding demand and business opportunity. The next generation is having more involvement in every step of the buying process. Uniting the body and mind is an emerging market. Natural physical health, fitness will expand but botox and insulin sales will also grow.
Mental health, retreats and spas prosper. The health of the planet is becoming a more important business.There is a shift of emphasis from GDP to GWB (General Wellness Barometer Happiness Factor). Business will operate with more passion.
We’ll see how markets are shifting from materialistic needs to emotional and spiritual needs.
By not purposely limiting business sessions to any specific businesses, delegates can learn how to try anything!
This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous delegate just shared:
“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!
“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“Below are some of my search results. I only listed GOOGLE and YAHOO but you can find similar results on both MSN and ASK.com.
#1 out of 1,190,000 …………………………“definition healthy spirit “
#1 and #2 out of 1,210,000.………………….“benefits to living a holistic life “
#1 out of 1,260,000 …………………………“gaining a healthy mind “
#1 and #2 out of 1,260,000 …………………“benefits to living a holistic life “
#2 out of 935,000 …………………………..“holistic lifestyle tips “
You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business globally!
This is a perfect era to increase your wealth and improve your lifestyle as you reduce stress with investments in the ideas below or your own a micro internet business.
Merri and I enjoy having an international internet business and it has done well since 1998.
We are very thankful to have been one of the most read sites in Ecuador and we do very well in the US and Canada, too. Also we have clients in 82 countries.
Yet we are trying new things still.
May we share our experiences to help you learn how to enjoy this satisfaction and success through your own micro business?
We help readers learn how to create a value oriented micro businesses. This is important because this type of activity does well in good times and bad. Knowing the micro business philosophies we follow can help you invest better and can help you create an internet success if you desire. The Western economy has changed… probably forever. The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in politics and society and in the way we work because technology brings us low cost administration, low cost access to data, low cost communication, and low cost travel, plus the opening of markets beyond logic that rely more on passion and experience than on efficiency and cost.
We look at these economic and structural changes, and what to do about them in the international investing and business portion of our seminar.
Learn how to gain all our courses for a large savings below.
Here’s the Ultimate Form of FreedomSimple pleasures create the ultimate for of freedom and can make you richer than a billionaire.
Our grandson Garren’s school system features optional career academies: small, personalized learning communities within the high school that students enter by choice. Garren is enrolled in the culinary academy so whenever he stays with us we make sure to do some form of cooking together. As with our children, we help the grandkids learn how to fish, hunt and preserve foods… and to cook!
We have found that the gun, rod and reel and stove can compete with the cell phone and tablet for the youngin’s attention.
This year during his school break, we hunted for deer, caught bass in the lake and picked oranges from our grove. We made venison sausage and we canned orange marmalade. We chose a low sugar recipe, picked the oranges and lemons and chopped them up, rinds and all and cooked away.
We boiled the jars, poured and viola, we had a year’s supply of tasty vitamin C to go along with many pounds of high quality protein.
This is a small win, no big deal. This marmalade is darn good but we do not plan to live off our own food supply. We don’t want to live off our own food supply and we don’t think we’ll ever have to live off our own food supply.
Here is the point. We enjoy the process. We love the simple pleasure of teaching the kids. We love family activities together PLUS we enjoy feeling like we could live off our own food supply if we had too. This gives us a great deal of independence. This is just one of many enjoyable, small step towards freedom, self reliance and family unity.
What more could we ask for, spending quality time with children and grandchildern while enjoying a common goal? This is not always such a simple task. Finding something to do that everyone enjoys and that gets the younger generation away from electronics and the cell phone can be a challenge.
We start the process with our grandchildren by creating many small wins. We began by winning our grandson over to nature when he was five.
Garren kayaking on the Withlahoochi River
Then we won him over by learning how to grow food early.
Garren growing lettuce and herbs in our back yard.
These are not efforts either. These are fun activities for everyone that also create greater control in our and our family’s lives.
How important is this feeling of independence and control?
During the last recession, a German billionaire quietly put on his coat, told his wife “I have to go to the office for a while”, and drove to a railway embankment near his home, where he lay on the frozen tracks and waited patiently for a train to crush him to death.
This man was ranked as one of the 100 richest men in the world, with a personal fortune that reached over $10 billion. But even though he was worth billions, the global recession left him feeling out of control.
A Telegraph article on why he committed suicide (1) said: He did not need the money. He lived so modestly that he cycled to work on a 15-year-old bike for most of the year, and in bad weather he drove a four-year-old VW Golf. He had no bodyguards or servants, lived in an unimposing chalet-style house in the small town of Blaubeuren, his home for the past 60 years, without so much as a CCTV camera for protection, and stopped off at his local pub on his way home each night to share a drink with the regulars.
The blame for his demise was placed perhaps most importantly on loss of control. “His companies were his life and when he was going to lose control of them he obviously felt he would lose control of his life” a friend said.
A short statement released by Merckle’s family said the “powerlessness of not being able to do anything” had been the key to his suicide.
Most of us can’t imagine becoming billionaires. Most of us don’t have the background to build huge businesses. Perhaps we won’t even have a really huge win at anything or any special stroke of good luck.
We can have freedom, purpose and a sense of control and the power to influence our livelihood, and all that’s around us. We can start taking that power right now by having one small win. Every small win makes it easier to have the next small win and our successes do not have to be big deals to help us feel better and to lead us to greater success!
This is why I want to introduce you toour special course Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.
To be truly free we need flexibility, to be able to flex our ability to earn when and where we choose, doing what we love so regardless of the money, we never feel poor.
My wife Merri and I are entering our fifth decade of writing and self publishing. Though we are financially secure without a penny of debt, we keep working because we love what we do. Your lifestyle can improve by leaps and bounds when two reasons (profit and passion) for writing come together.
This is why we have recorded our “Writer’s Camp” to help you “Get Started”… but to “Start Small” and maybe like us stay small… tightly focused, but highly profitable.
We love writing and self publishing so much that years ago we offered to conduct 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.
Here are few stories of how those who attended our Writer’s Camps have used what they learned.
Barry Weinhold sent this note: We were successful authors before attending the Writer’s Camp, with our first book published in 1989 selling over 200,000 print copies. With the tips from your course last fall, we have published six new ebooks in Kindle format that are now available at Amazon.com.
Thanks for helping us get the word out about Barry’s 2-part Breaking Family Patterns series. Janae has also released her 3-part Con Job series.
We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”
Our monthly royalty checks are now coming in and we are very pleased with the response to our new books (656 books sold and 1295 free downloads in seven months). We have six more new ebooks in the pipeline for publication. Our goal is to publish twelve new ebooks by our one-year course anniversary. We couldn’t have published this quickly without the great support we received from your Writer’s Camp. We highly recommend it to anybody seeking the fast track to becoming independent self-publisher.
Self Publishers can also write in more than one niches.
Nickolette Goff writes non fiction in two niches. After attending a Writer’s Camp Nicki used what she had learned to help promote her first book… a Quinoa recipe cookbook with 13 recipes. She had 10,000 downloads of the book in five days and obtained dozens of good reviews!
You can get 13 more great quinoa recipes in Nicki Goff’s book at the links below.
She wrote: Hi, Gary, Book sales are actually going well, and I’m having a lot of fun with this. I’m so grateful to you and Merri for pushing me to get some action going!
The free promos really get things going, and seem to reignite sales.
Two more in the works – both on gardening topics. Best wishes for 2013 to you and Merri. Love, Nicki
What a joy seeing how helping and connecting people helps self publishers create their own special success. How beautiful to see friends turn their passions into profit!
Nicki learned at the camp that getting these downloads is step three in a seven step process. We (and others) have been helping Nicki and our delegates walk through these steps so they can earn income through writing and publishing again and again.
Nicki is now well on her way to wonderful self publishing success. She just completed her fourth book in a totally different genre gardening. This book is “Under Cover Gardening”.
She used the three day free Kindle marketing program again. Read about Nicki’s new book here.
Nicki wrote: Gary: My book was downloaded exactly 6000 times during the 3 days, and is selling around 5 per day right now. I’m very pleased with the results – three 5* reviews so far. Nicki
Chances are that most books you write will not be a best seller. However Nicki’s books show the process that you use to create a steady income as you build inventory. She is publishing numerous books in each of the genres she loves. This creates extra income and added inventory if one of your books becomes a big success.
Let’s look at Nicki’s example again to see these benefits. Imagine this. Nicki writes a half dozen books, three on organic gardening and three on quinoa.
Then imagine that Oprah is interested in quinoa, reads Nicki’s book and has her on the show. Nicki’s quinoa book sales will go bananas. So too will all her other quinoa books. Add further to this example and say that the national psyche just happens to be focused on better nutrition when this all happens. If so, Nicki’s organic gardening book sales will skyrocket as well.
To sum this up… at the camp you’ll learn the importance of writing a lot for your niche. The increased number of publications will allow you to keep your price low, but generate income that keeps you writing as you build inventory so any bigger success can grow in exponential bonds.
You can also self publish at any age. A number of our friends who have used our writers course to self publish are in their 70s and 80s. Yet college students have self published as well.
The father of the family of four wrote: Hi Gary and Merri: Just thought y’all would like to know that today Doss published his first book. It is called College Confidential and it is currently listed at number 42 on amazon. com. He would not have done it but for our experience this summer at your Writer’s Camp.
So, here is thanking you both very much.
This book is written by a student, for students, College Confidential: An Insider’s Guide to Success written by Doss Winter is filled with practical tips and insider information addressing everything from Academics to getting your Zzzzs.
Here are a few more examples of how others used the information from our workshop?
A long time friend, who had just retired from a 30 year career in the oil industry joined our program. His passion was to learn more about health and looking at the deep, more spiritual aspects of life since he had ended a financially successful career. He has gone on to publishing the leading healthy living magazine where he lives.
Not only was he able to publish 20,000 copies of a 48-64 page magazine on healthy living every month, he was able to meet and work with leading health and spiritual leaders like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer and even the Dali Llama. What a thrill.
Michelle Toole, an at home mother, made a fateful decision… to attend our self publishing course.
Michelle was disabled when she took the “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” camp.
She took what she learned from our publishing courses and created her own successful global micro website.
Michelle wrote: “I have some great news, my web site http://healthy-holistic-living.com is now getting on average 2,000 visitors a day! Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month! The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities. We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.
“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running. I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year. The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.
“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”
Another successful self publisher who attended our workshop wrote :
“MY HEAD IS STILL SPINNING from all of the valuable input I received. Out in the boonies, 2 + hours from the airport in Charlotte , North Carolina it was not your typical setting for a business seminar.
“It was presented by a fascinating guy with an interesting career history. Gary Scott and his wife, Merri, split their time between their idyllic farm in North Carolina and their property in the mountains of Ecuador . I first heard about Gary through my interest in Ecuador .
“By his own admission, Gary is often ‘a bit ahead of the curve’ which is part of what makes his material interesting. You sense the authenticity of what he is saying but it has not caught on in the mainstream media or pop-culture.
“The input is that is already affecting my life was not just from the instructor, but from other participants. The small group, less than twenty, seemed to be intimately bonded as soon as the seminar started. People from all walks of life and all parts of the country gained insights from the information that was geared to create a ‘life of your choosing more so than just a successful business. A very simple but powerful concept. Why do we want the money in the first place?
“The lifestyle aspect of the course was taught by example. We, as a group, were temporarily inserted directly into the lifestyle led by Gary and Merri. No better way to learn than by doing.
“The course content suited my needs very nicely. It addressed issues pertinent to FilmTrips and my marketing company, MJ Media. New life has been injected into several FilmTrips projects that had been languishing on a back burner for quite some time. Gary talks about being open to ‘connect the dots’ and take advantage of distortions or discrepancies between economies and countries. I am in a very good position to do that. Telephone and Internet technology has certainly arrived to help make it happen. I will keep you posted!”
Delegates from our last camp wrote:
My daughter and I had a fantastic time at the Writer’s Camp this past weekend. We both felt we gained a tremendous amount of knowledge on “how to make money with our writing skills”! Thank you.
Yours and Merri’s expertise on transmitting knowledge to others is phenomenal. The warm, personal feel of being with you both along with the great people in the class was great!
Thank you again for all the added information gained in all areas of life and what I consider gourmet meals served to us all.
Another wrote:Have just returned from the writing seminar conducted at your farm in Ashe County, North Carolina, I thought I’d give you my take on what I experienced. To suggest that the location, hosts, seminar content, and accommodations were adequate would be an understatement.
The seminar itself opened a whole new world that I hope to explore in the coming months. I drove away from your farm with a well inflated right rear tire and a wealth of information that could catapult me into a whole new profession should I opt to go that route. I still have a number of professional business ideas that I intend to pursue, however, the concepts and ideas conveyed in your seminar will serve to enhance whatever I undertake going forward.
But if there was one underlying common denominator that I recognized, it was the fact that you are both so well qualified to present in this field of communication. Probably my most prolific observation was how well read and knowledgeable you are. The breadth and depth of knowledge on so many diverse yet associated subjects kept my unswerving attention. It also opened my mind to a variety of fields that, heretofore, I would not have considered relevant to my interests. And as a presenter, Gary is prolific. I drove away knowing that not only did the seminar give me my money’s worth but I was introduced to some very valuable contacts.
The bottom line is your seminar was both eye opening and entertaining. I came, I saw, I learned, and I even ate healthy. Thanks for everything. John
The son of a father son team sent this note:
Hi Merri! I just attended your writers camp with my dad this past weekend. I didn’t get to express how much I appreciated all that you and Gary did for us this weekend because we were in a hurry to get to the airport. Letting us stay in your cottage and having us for your writers camp was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life! Gary and Merri’s stories of adventure, success, your lessons, and advice are truly priceless!!
This camp has inspired me. Writing has always come naturally for me but I never was able to view it as a business opportunity.
This camp has shown me not only that writing can be profitable, but HOW to make it profitable! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with me. In my lifetime, I could only hope to see the success that you and Gary have achieved.
I not have only signed up for your newsletter, but I can’t stop spreading the word to my friends about my experience. Thanks again for your amazing hospitality, Mitchell
If you accept our invitation, the workshop hammers, even bombards you with the absolute, vital importance of starting small. We live in the era of epublishing that makes small “big”. This plays perfectly into the hands of small businesses and copywriters as we just happened to have a perfect advantage right now in the marketplace.
Now let’s get to the important stuff. Our life is less stressed (not stress free – every business has stress) but Self Publishing can be a low stress business… no commuting… choose your own hours… immersed in your passions with like minded souls. Work at home. How refreshing!
Here I am at our Florida home… at work?
Here I am at work in the Blue Ridge. Better than a cubicle for sure!
You can have fun every day doing what you love as you accomplish goals that are important… to you… and are a service to your community.
Merri and I, for example, love helping people get jobs. So we used self publishing to create a foundation (Land of the Sun Foundation) to help the indigenous learn how to get work. The foundation has donated nearly a million dollars in Ecuador to create jobs.
What do you love? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing your passion and do something good for the world at the same time?
Your passion and self publishing create…magic, wealth, happiness.
Three other things you gain.
#1: Respect. If you are not a recluse like Merri and me, you’ll find yourself the center of attention at social events and with your friends and in business because publishing is highly respected.
#2: Power. Everyone wants publishers to distribute good information about them. And everyone fears publishers a bit. The pen IS mightier than the sword!
#3: Protection. Writers are protected by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You do not need a license to publish. There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing. Publishers enjoy almost more freedom than any other occupation because of the Freedom of the Press. This is so powerful because the first amendment is actually a part of the Bill of Rights. Just in case you missed this in school (as most students did including me) here are the exact words of this amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
You become the press and you are set free. You cannot get more protection than that.
Shall we get back to the money and lifestyle? What can self publishing do financially for you?
Merri and I love nature so our home in Florida is set amidst and orange grove… just far enough from busy parts of the state that we enjoy wonderful peace and quiet. This makes a perfect place to study. This is a winter shot from the front yard of our Florida home looking over our orange grove and lake… that we bought with cash from our self published writing.
The Blue Ridge is our summer home. That name is a slight misnomer for a large part of the year. Correctly named in the winter, these mountains would be called “White Ridge”. The white comes from snow which begins with S as does South which is where we head around November…to Florida or Ecuador .
While it’s freezing in the North Carolina mountains, we worry about sunburn sometimes.
Why listen to this Writer’s Camp? Self publishing can easily fulfill all of your material needs. More importantly it throws you together with fantastically interesting people from all walks of life. You all share a common goal… to write… to sell… to earn. This create magic for all.
You can enjoy this wonderful lifestyle. Married, single, rich, poor, in good and bad health, educated and not, travelers and those who want to just stay at home. This is who self publishing works for… those who want a gradual part time improvement in life and those who want to make big enhancements now.
This workshop appeals to anyone who would like to write or publish or both. See how published products can include compilations, catalogues, CDS, interviews. Plus look at how to develop treks, tours, visits, products and services.
You’ll see how one delegate who attended the workshop used her publication to sell real estate.
This course is for individuals and couples. We include those who want their own publishing system together as a family business.
This workshop is not theory. Merri and I share our real time experiences. We start at the beginning over 40 years ago but mainly look at how we earn hundreds of thousands and even millions a year in our exciting lifestyle…right now.
We study and listen to many other self publishers as well.
Self employed, retired, professionals and those who are employed who want to add extra income or who want to change their life entirely will benefit. Previous course delegates have included investors, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, other professionals and those who already own their own business and of course retirees.
Which would you rather have… 6% of $10 or 70% of $3?
The math to this question brings an obvious answer and creates opportunity for those who want a writer’s life.
Starting with online books allows you to lower price… increase volume and cut out a publisher, distributor and book store who normally absorb up to 88% of the income created by a book.
You can start self publishing with no printing costs, no shelf space, no inventory, no postal delivery. Most of the publishing expenses are eliminated.
The writer keeps 70%.
Amazon keeps 30%.
A typical writer earning 12% of the wholesale book sales makes about $.60 per $9.99 book sale. A Kindle writer makes $2.10 on a $3 sale.
Buyers of books fall into niches. Choosing the correct niche is a first step in the elusive process of capturing the national psyche. When you tap into this phenomenon, you can earn millions just from online sales. I know. This process has netted an extra $2,072,614.89 for my business in the past several years.
Yet the income from selling ebooks… as profitable as it can be… is only a part of the earning potential.
The first step in this process is to focus on a niche and create trust with the readers in that niche.
The eBook revolution makes this entire process easier because Amazon sales can be like prospecting tools.
Some amazing websites and businesses have been and will continue to be built using eBooks. Kindle sales act like a search engine. They are the starting point that attracts the original readers who become the nucleus of your success.
Technology especially favors small publishers today. Portable computers, the internet, wireless access, on demand printing smart phones and electronic readers all create enormous new potential for small publishers.

Merri and I have always preferred to start our micro businesses through cash flow. However in the early the days of our business I found myself raising extra capital several times. I have also helped numerous businesses raise money to get started. This report shares several experiences to give a thumbnail sketch of how to raise to get a micro business off the ground.
One of the biggest reasons readers do not get started being their own boss, gaining a second income and taking a first step towards greater freedom, is they can’t find the funds to get of the ground. This is so important and I am so dedicated to gaining more independence that I’ll send this report to you free even if you do not order our Self Fulfilled course at this time. See the link below for the free report “How to Finance a Small Business” free and without obligation.
In addition you receive any updates we make on any of these courses reports or recordings, free for a year. Businesses usually need to evolve. Merri and I continue to publish and have our independent businesses. Some basics have remained for decades, but new strategies occur all the time throughout the year. We’ll be sending along updates that share our most recent experiences as we learn and continue to grow our international micro business from Smalltown USA.
