There is more than one way to bake a potato as there are many ways to retire from the rat race.
The easiest way to do this (retire from the rat race) is by having your own business. This option is growing as society and the global economy evolve.
Rapid technological change and shifting social norms mean that cradle to grave careers with large corporations are on the wane.
A USA Today article entitled “New grad, no job? Become an entrepreneur” by Mary Beth Marklein helps us understand why.
Here is an excerpt. Graduating from college soon and no job in sight? Maybe you can create your own. Opportunities are springing up nationwide for budding entrepreneurs.
The flurry of opportunities reflects the mixed job picture for young adults. Corporations plan to hire 10% more new graduates this year compared with 2011, says a survey last month by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which tracks job hiring trends for recent graduates.
Even so, employers scaled back on hiring in March, according to the latest Labor Department data, and younger workers were hardest hit. By the end of 2011, just 54% of 18- to-24-year-olds were employed, the lowest rate since the Labor Department began collecting the data in 1948, says a Pew Research Center report released in February.
On average, entrepreneurs are about 43 when they launch their companies, says the Kauffman Foundation, a research group that studies entrepreneurship.
Students are looking at the economic environment and saying, ‘How do I make my own way? How do I follow my passion?’” says Doug Neal, executive director of the University of Michigan’s Center for Entrepreneurship. “Many of the students are very passionate about having an impact on the world.”
Merri, David and I have been entrepreneurs our entire lives and we believe that turning your passion into profit is a great way to retire from the rat race. This is why we are updating our online courses on how to earn globally.
Because the world of business is changing at an increased pace our online course Tangled Web – How to Have an Online Business is ongoing. As new technology comes online this courses evolves.
Here is a sample from that course … part of a new lesson from the Tangled Web course written by our webmaster, David Cross.
When and How to Use Video Within Your Online Business
By David Cross
Although I was only 4 years old at the time, I remember it as clearly as if it were yesterday. There we sat – my dad, mum, my sister, Ruth, and me – together as a family on the floor, squeezed as close to the television screen as possible. This was no flat-screen LCD wonder but our very first, 8-inch (20-cm) screen, black and white television set that my dad had rented the week before the event.
We shared a giant leap for mankind from the floor of our front room in England as Neil Armstrong descended the ladder of The Eagle to step foot on the surface of The Moon. July 20, 1969. What seemed fascinating, impossible and inexplicable has now become commonplace! Although I still watch very little television, I recall this moment with great fondness. Here is a family picture taken around that time.
Of course, television doesn’t seem that remarkable today and even space flight has now become something we take for granted, but even 5 years ago it is unlikely that you’d have watched a video online. And only 3 years back you probably hadn’t streamed a movie or watched a television program online.
Every day now it seems that we are bombarded online with video clips of cute cats, video presentations, online live television or streaming movies. If you run an online business it is difficult to know exactly how – and whether – to use video within your business, and if you are just starting-out in business, the thought of having to create online content and get into video production can seem overwhelming.
But there’s a simple rule to help you determine whether and how to use video within your online business. Essentially, is it even relevant?
I came across a website last weekend that uses video in a really excellent way and that illustrates how to use video in an effective, unobtrusive way that I, as a customer, really gained something. I bought some vegetable and herb seeds for the first time from Grow Organic. Not only did I find their website easy to use (in my work I see and use many turgid websites that make online shopping a pain) but they use videos in a way that adds to – rather than detracts from – my experience of using their website.
Take the following example from Grow Organic’s web pages on potatoes and growing potatoes. Many people want to know how to grow their own vegetables but – as with any new topic – getting started and doing it right can seem off-putting. In the case of Grow Organic they’ve included helpful videos on many of their web pages, and in this case the video on growing potatoes guides you step-by-step through the preparation, planting, care and harvesting of potatoes.
I first grew potatoes at 3 years old on my father’s allotment in Northern England. He rented the 150ft x 30ft (50m x 10m) plot of land for sixpence (5 cents) a month from Peggy, a sprightly 88-year old woman with 8 allotments and a ragged old donkey that we often fed carrots and apples to. I started growing my own vegetables again about 5 years back and remembered enough about growing potatoes from my childhood so that we have enjoyed fresh potatoes from our garden ever since. They taste divine and are nothing like the near-flavorless store-bought potatoes.
Potatoes are not difficult to grow and will grow pretty much anywhere, as my father proved one year by taking an old bucket filled with soil and producing some of the sweetest new potatoes I’ve ever tasted.
Using this as an example of course…if you are just starting-out, anything can seem daunting and as a primer for growing potatoes this video is an excellent introduction.What is more, the video itself could have been produced on any modern phone or camera and edited for free with programs like iMovie. You could add royalty-free music from websites like www.themusicbed.com and you don’t really need the image at the start.
Marketers and businesses talk of “viral” marketing and want to have their ideas passed along. With the advent of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, the desire to have strong ideas that are shared and talked about has increased. But you can’t fool people into passing things around or “liking” them. The content still has to be something of extreme value that they’d want to pass along. Looking at the number of positive reviews and comments on Grow Organic’s YouTube channel I can tell that they’ve hit the right mark of using video to offer something valuable, useful and relevant.
How to Apply to Your Business
Whatever business you are in, you are an expert in that field and your customers will buy what you offer, either information or products. Following Grow Organic’s example, how could you use video in your business? Here are some ideas:
- A do-it-yourself store could show how to tile a shower, fix a door lock or unblock a drain
- A skateboard store could show how to do skateboarding tricks
- An equipment rental place could demonstrate how to use equipment and how to transform a raggedy grass patch into a pristine lawn
- An auto accessories store could demonstrate how to change oil, restore paint color and showroom shine or change-out spark plugs
- An accountant could walk a business through some tax-saving tips and show how these can be applied to a local business
- A piano teacher could show some simple exercises to improve piano playing
The correct use of video demonstrates your expertise and provides a way for your customers to benefit from that expertise. You don’t need to spend a fortune producing them and as we’ve seen from today’s example, videos done well can make a big positive difference in the effectiveness of a sales page at a website.
Quantum Innovation – A Micro Business Course
“Go Try Things”
Learn how to turn your passions into profit… wherever you live… wherever you travel with “Quantum Innovation” a Micro Business Course created from three of our online courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web – How to Have an Internet Business” and “Quantum Thinking”.
Here’s a phrase that can reduce stress and make your life better with everlasting wealth … “Go Try Things”!
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 “Go Try Things” that began in Hong Kong about 44 years ago should be shared .
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. The company that sent me there went bust and left me stranded… broke…. divorced… unable to ay my rent. Yet I had an idea and trying it 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.
We conducted Dominican real estate tours but also created out course International Business Made EZ.
Since then thousands have attended or taken the correspondence version of this course all over the world.
Then in the process of trying new places and new things, 15 years ago we stumbled onto Ecuador.
We continue to “go try things”.
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 business turn out as 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 after working by my pool and reading a 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 are offering a two courses for the price of one special.
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 global micro business with our online courses.
You can learn how to gain “earning flexibility” so you can earn… mobile or not… full or part time… young or old. We have many boomers take our courses… some older.
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.
This is why we have combined our two courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web How to Have an Internet Business” and our Quantum Thinking Workshop (for the price of one) plus added knowledge about how to be smarter and more intuitive in business. We call this union of three courses our “Quantum Innovation Program”.
These courses focus on how to use modern technology to start a and run or improve a 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… whether you travel or stay at home.
The 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 use the seven Ps to create internet sales. The internet can support a business or can be a business.
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 as you earn with your own a micro internet business.
Merri and I enjoy having an international internet business. This has brought us everlasting wealth since 1998.
We are very thankful to be one of the most read sites in Ecuador and we do very well in the US and Canada, too. Also we have clients in dozens of countries.
Yet we are trying new things still. Last year we began adding teachers to our Super thinking + Spanish program so you’ll learn how to expand your micro business through others. Recently Panama has also become a hot spot for our business and we are now working on an expansion via the internet into Panama, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Mexico, Canada, Cuba, Hong Kong, China and Singapore.
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.
Our sales doubled during the last recession. Our list of readers increased over 100%.
This is how good, value oriented business grow by the way. They should increase steadily in good times. They do not get caught overextending in euphoria. Then during bad times they are in a position to do really well! Our sales doubled during the recession. Our list of readers increased over 100%. Since the economy picked up our business growth has slowed but business is still growing. This is how good, value oriented business grow by the way.
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.
The economy will recover… but the way people earn and work… and how the money is distributed and to whom especially… has been profoundly altered. This is especially true in value added countries like Canada… the USA and most of Europe.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in 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.
The recent, global economic transformation means that the way we work, live and earn will next be the same. This will destroy the financial security of many, yet bring great opportunity to a few… who adapt and learn how to earn in the new era.
We are enjoying a quantum shift and the way we work, live, invest and do business will never be as before.
Governments globally are trying to slow this needed economic transition and their stimulation efforts will most likely cause the loss of purchasing power in most currencies… global inflation.
The greatest asset we can have in the new era is an ability to serve… to produce a product or service that adapts to the changing ways.
A recent special report in Time magazine entitled “The Way We’ll Work” explained this financial dilemma in this way:
Ten years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web. So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. No one is going to pay you just to show up. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative and far less secure work world. It will be run by a generation with new values — and women will increasingly be at the controls.
These words could not be more true. They mean disaster for many who plan t live in the old ways. These words spell great opportunity for those who adapt and enjoy the new ways to earn and live.
Take Merri’s and my business as an example. We are both past retirement age yet continue see our business and income grow and evolve… in truly fun and satisfying ways. We have a business that works in Cotacachi, a small Andean village, in Florida, our home and in the Blue Ridge of North Carolina or summer place. Our business can help us earn anywhere we choose in the world.
Our website began eleven years ago as an adjunct to our print business. Today we don’t sell a single scrap of paper.
This is all possible because we have a web based business and we would like to share how you can have freedom, fulfillment and extra income with your own internet business too.
You receive a huge package of benefits in the Quantum Innovation Program.
First learn how to have your own web business from our eMailed Web Business Course… The Tangled Webs We Weave.
This problem of being able to earn and enjoy the process in the new era is so acute and the importance of having more people do what they love so vital that we created this course…on how to develop your own international internet business.
Years ago, Merri and I had 23,000 print readers… micro sized in publishing terms… but very, very profitable for us. We made millions from this business.
Yet Merri and I saw this rapidly changing economy coming… and had learned that small is beautiful.
We decided to innovate, become even smaller… but wealthier and happier!
Money had stopped mattering as much, our children were grown, finished with university, we sold our print business and took a year off… lived with a shaman high in the Andes.
Then we morphed into an internet only business. Our readership began small, with about 1,600 email readers in 1998. We expected to slow down and smell the roses more.
We even bought an isolated hacienda high in the Andes called Rosaspamba (Place of roses).
Here we are playing around building a hut at the Hacienda.
As crazy as it seems, we could actually run a business with this small readership and make a profit because our readers are so wonderfully responsive.
This is what the new course I am creating will teach you….how to have a small, safe, profitable global internet business by creating wonderfully response, fun to be with, like-minded customers.
Today, our business remains micro sized but we have grown from 1,600 readers to four main subscription lists consisting of more than 30,000 subscribers.
The global economic downturn did not slow us a bit. In fact we grew faster, in number of subscribers and income.
This was all at a time when many say the world was economically depressed.
Our list and sales are still tiny compared to many of our competitors and associates who make millions a month. We make tens of thousands of dollars…sometimes hundreds each month… way more than our cost of living and we earn it in fun ways… traveling, writing… meeting interesting people and sharing interesting thoughts.
Here I am at a seminar speaking in Florida, with a panel of economic excerpts from around the world, to 115 people mostly who came from our internet business.
Here are the delegates.
We enjoyed walking the Florida beach, talking to these wonderful people and basking in the sun.. yet were paid in two days more than most people make in a month.
Yet we have been able to add this extra income with a surprisingly small amount of added overheads. This works perfectly for Merri and me…a fun sized readership. In our opinion, this should be the key in business… satisfaction… fulfillment and fun…through service along with the profit.
Yet, profits do matter and These internet sales alone have given us the freedom to live in an isolated Blue Ridge farm during summers and in Florida and Ecuador the rest of the year…yet still earn many tens of thousands of extra dollars a month.
Merri and I walk to our Blue Ridge office to speak with a group about how to have an internet business.
Now you can learn everything I do to create this extra income and have fun and fulfillment in a micro business.
In the summer I can even worked in the woods with our hound dog Ma.
Our growing income is one reason I want to share this course with you.
Shifts in the global economy mean that more of our readers need a new way to earn in the years ahead so my webmaster who helped me start this site and has become fully involved in our business agreed to co-write the course with me.
In the course Merri and I explain what we do in the business. The writing…the marketing…the product planning and such.
Our webmaster outlines the technical part. How to chose a server…set up a shopping cart…create pay per click systems…send thousands of emails a day.
“The Tangled Webs We Weave” looks at all the technical aspects of developing a web based business including:
* How to set up the website.
* How to use shopping carts.
* How to create pages.
* How to develop reader lists.
* How to create electronic products and income.
* How to get good search engine rankings. (See an excerpt below from one lesson on how to get good search engine rankings).
* How to gain tax advantages from an International web based business.
* How to stay small and yet create big profits.
Though we like to remain small, this does not mean all of our students will. Our webmaster started with us first but since has grown to be the chief internet consultant for several much larger internet marketing companies that send over a billion emails a year!
This part of the Quantum Innovation Course is entitled “Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Internet Business”. This has previously been available for $299. Now it is just one third of the new expanded course.
This is a bargain. Merri and I have been traveling and doing international business for 43 years. We have had a web based business for over ten years. You can share everything we have learned.
Plus we provide our standard full guarantee. Enroll in the entire program. Try the courses for 30 days. If not satisfied we’ll give you an immediate, full… no fuss refund.
Yet this is only the beginning… just one third of the Quantum Innovation Program.
The course helps you gain the benefits of defined focus and immediate repetition in business so you can get get good search engine rankings.
You learn in detail how to refine focus and use immediate repetition to get good rankings with search engines.
This is an important rule of business. Your focus must attract visitors to your site who will be interested, “at some time,” in buying your product or service.
Our business philosophy is not to worry about an immediate sale. We offer a lot of free data. Yet our goal is to get their business by giving so much good content that we deserve their business.
A list that is not focused on what you offer is pretty useless. You won’t generate much income and your readers won’t visit often.
Our site uses no tricks! Our site is not fancy. Our site does not have amazing graphics. Our site does not use any special SEO techniques. We just keep hammering away, every day, with steady, content closely focused to our readers needs. This has worked well and seems to be working even better as we continue to grow, our email list size increases, our site visits rise, our sales and our profits jump even during this gloomy economy.
As the web matures… internet businesses are still incredibly new… authenticity and usefulness of content will grow. This makes it a great time for individuals to have small internet businesses (like ours) that are fun, fulfilling, sustainable and very profitable.
The Tangled Web course is co authored by our webmaster David Cross.
David has been our webmaster since our site began over a decade ago. He has unparalleled, hands-on marketing experience that spans 25 years in 22 countries for companies and charities large and small.
He’s guided many businesses and individuals to success in their business and helped them achieve their marketing goals, both online and offline.
As Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD, David worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and over an 8-year period helped to propel Agora’s online revenues to over $300 Million in 2009.
David wrote to me when he completed this video: “Although I do say it myself in those 50 minutes is everything anyone would ever need to know to start their own Internet business.”
This video is brand new as of two weeks ago and the first reader to read it wrote: Muchas Gracias Gary, Just watched David’s video. It Was SUPER! Thanks Again. Bill
Our Guarantee is of course that you can try the entire program for 30 days. If not satisfied we’ll give you an immediate, full… no fuss refund.

Now let’s look at the other two thirds of the Innovation Program you receive when you enroll in the program.
Part Two: International Business Made EZ – Good news on how to have a turnkey extra income.
We need good news since we all hear so much bad news… in the headlines…. all the time.
All these negatives can help set us free because this is only bad news for those who rely on jobs in North America.
The rapid global social and economic change creates opportunity for those who have a global view. If you want or need to earn extra income, the best way now may be with your own global micro business. If you want adventure, fun, fulfillment, freedom and the opportunity to go where you have always desired, an international micro business can help you as well.
Technology and globalization have destroyed many jobs… killed many dreams. These same destructive changes create NEW opportunities at the same time. Quite frankly many of the new opportunities are better…offer more profit… more freedom… more fun and offer the types of lifestyle you may have always desired.
This is why our flagship online course has always been International Business Made EZ.

Take this excerpt from a USA Today article entitled “Small businesses look across borders to add markets” by Paul Davidson to see what this means. Here is an excerpt: Executives at Osagian Canoes of Lebanon, Mo. never thought much about selling their product outside the U.S. Shipping costs for the 17-foot long aluminum canoes seemed exorbitant. And John Carr, vice president of Osagian’s parent company, Carmeco, figured he’d have to learn new languages and worried international sales contracts couldn’t be enforced.
But since attending a workshop last year developed by the Commerce Department, Osagian has opened a small factory in Denmark and exports are on pace to comprise 15% of sales this year. The effort is part of the President Obama’s National Export Initiative, which launched early last year and aims to double U.S. exports in five years and create 2 million new jobs.
His next targets: southern hemisphere regions such as South America and Australia that enjoy summer when the U.S. is slogging through winter. That would help Osagian prop up sales in the U.S. offseason. Carr expects to increase foreign sales to about 500 a year by 2013. That would mean doubling his six-employee staff.
The article goes on to tell how the wake-up call for many small-businesses was the recession.
Blue Cube LCD, which makes parts and enhancements for liquid crystal displays in now making LCD parts tractor GPS systems in Italy and a factory automation producer in France and added about a dozen new employees to his staff of 18.
It tells of Epicurean, a Duluth Minnesota frim, which makes restaurant-quality cutting boards for consumers, and how since 2005 its exports have grown to 48 countries and comprise 40% of sales.
The fastest economic growth has been overseas for many years, but recent events (Middle East, Japan, the falling Dollar, the US debt downgrade, social disorder everywhere) have so accelerated this trend that I have created a special Global Earning Program based around our course, International Business Made EZ.
International Business Made EZ, includes”
Bonus #1: Our webmaster’s 45 minute video on all you need to make your website effective.
Bonus #2: My report, “How to Finance a Small Business Overseas”.
Bonus #3: an MP3 recording of our one day International Business Made EZ seminar.
You can also enjoy a global lifestyle because after years of search, my wife and I found a perfect way to operate a international micro business that you can profit from as well.
You can find the perfect opportunity because Merri, and I have been able to live where we choose, have a truly wonderful life and amass riches far beyond our dreams.
More importantly we have been able to get all five of our children an advanced education plus create a foundation that helps the indigenous poor and preserve forests, create water systems for the indigenous, fund university educations for Ecuadorian young people…and more.
To share this success we created an easy way for you to start small… gain an elusive opportunity through a system of everlasting wealth. You can make your business as big or small as you wish and live wherever you choose. The system is so powerful that it creates money for you regardless of where you are: in town, out of the country, during travel or even in places as remote as we live.
I searched for this elusive opportunity for twenty years, looking for a way to earn and enjoy a good lifestyle.
I finally found it and after years of proving that it works want to share it with you.
My search stumbled on the fact that most millionaires make their money in business. This discovery led to a study of rich businesses, ones that generate everlasting wealth. Here are five of seven secrets I learned about these businesses:
Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect. A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis. Each investment made needs to make huge returns.
Secret #2: They need to be more than their owner’s time. They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income. You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might. One surgeon explained it this way. “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands. Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops. My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”
Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun! Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money. Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun. The most important fact I learned about making and keeping wealth was that those who were richest absolutely loved what they were doing! Money was of secondary importance to their effort. And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money!
Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible. No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.
Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large. I learned that good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis. Most businesses start with a learning curve. During that time it is essential they are small. Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.
These secrets created a fantastic way to make money with my own international business doing what I love! Now you too can make a fortune by turning your passion into profit.
Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead. I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check. Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.
Since then our international business has brought in millions. Since we started using the micro business principles we share, we gained all the physical possessions we desired. We have had more cars (including a Bentley and Rolls Royce – Mercedes, Audis and BMWs) than we can drive, more houses than we could use, a tropical beachfront home, our farm in the mountains on acreage overlooking a roaring creek, a 962 acre plantation in Ecuador, a large Florida home, with an income producing orange grove… not one penny of debt.
More important we have plenty of leisure time though we rarely take it because we love what we do in our global business.
More important, we have fun every day! Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community. In short we can help ourselves and help make the world a better place at the same time.
Most important, we can give as well as receive. Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.
More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from any of the locations we love (you have seen the pictures) even though some are foten many miles from civilization.
You too can have the freedom to do what you love from any place you like, even operating from your bedroom if you wish.
What do you love? Rare cars? You can make a fortune creating a business around them. Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever? Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?
Are you concerned with the environment or humanitarian problems, with crimes, war or poverty? Would you like to help wipe these social problems out in the course of your business?
Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make all kinds of money in a global business related to golf?
Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together? You can do something good for the world, increase your income and live wherever you please in the process!
Whatever your passion you can learn how to make a fortune by creating an international business around it. You can be international if you love to travel or not. Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.
Take fishing, for example. Millions of people love fishing. Here are just a few of many ways that others have profitably matched this passion with profit. Two of my friends, John and Lou, grew up near me in the Oregon mountains. They were outdoor adventure types and moved to Canada, where they homesteaded 1,200 acres on a trout-filled lake in mid British Columbia. They built a fishing camp that attracts fisherman from around the world.
Duncan Kinderman on the other hand loved fishing and castles. He bought a castle on the River Tay, a great Scottish salmon river, and offered time shares for fisherman from Britain, Europe and the US.
Another entrepreneur I know was from Montana. His skills were in marketing so he sold fishing trips for fishing camps. He attended rod and gun exhibitions, met owners of these camps and arranged to sell their fishing trips to the US, Argentina and even in Russia to fisherman around the world.
Ralph Kylloe on the other hand loved fishing and photography so he created the book, “Fishing Camps”, which was published by Gibbs Smith publisher. This allowed Ralph to travel across the country enjoying fishing camps as he photographed and wrote.
Steve Ambrose, another friend of ours, had family commitments at home so he set up a bass fishing business in Florida that served Americans, Germans, Canadian, Dutch and Belgians. Later as his children grew, he used his client base to arrange fishing trips in Argentina.
Each of these people had different backgrounds and differed in age, situation and skills. Their common link, the love of fishing, led each to a global business. Each was able to blend a unique nature and set of skills to develop a global business that surrounded them with fun, like minded fishing souls.
Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel. Every trip you take can be tax deductible! You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business. Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT.
As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country. Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas. Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax! Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.
There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created an entire system to help you have your own international business. This system is unique because Merri and I are unique. We started our global business together. Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves. We began working at home. Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home on our remote farms and do not employ a single person in our business. Now because of a unique system we have arranged, you can do the same.
The system is contained in an online correspondence program called International Business Made EZ. The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself. It answers your questions and gets your business started!
For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:
“Jam packed with vital information. My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing! Thank you once again for an outstanding course. The value far exceeds the price.“
Our online course International Business Made EZ will help you gain income and freedom so you can live wherever you choose!
International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:
Secret #6: Look for ways to gain strong margins in business. The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses. Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them. Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products. Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer. On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each. By calling them dog whistles the business lady was able to sell them at $9.95, a whopping 2,700% mark up!
Secret #7: Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing. There are 11 steps to create the perfect product. You learn them with International Business Made EZ. Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.
Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.
You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune. You’ll learn how to create your own ads and when to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth. When to use a website and how to create a website on your own.
See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity. I even share my most secret results on my marketing so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a product at $49 instead of $29.
Learn how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.
You also learn how to make money over the Internet. With an inexpensive computer you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over- even if you are computer challenged. Merri and I have certainly proven this. The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach.
People of all ages are doing this because technology wipes out any disadvantage of age and gender. A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago. The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she expected $500,000 revenue in 2005. Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.
International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style. Everything is explained in vivid detail. We share all, how we have done it ourselves. It is full of business ideas and case studies.
The course gives names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help. This is not theoretical. It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I started small, built a multi-million dollar international business in just 7 years and then made it smaller on purpose and how you can do the same.
Terry T, a friend and attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.”
The course includes information on:
*How to Gain Total Security. Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option. See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change not a victim of change.
*How to Perfect a Lifestyle. Living as you choose is important because life is short. Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.
George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote: “Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology. They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way. I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”
* How to Choose the Best Legal Structure. How to use Non-Controlled Corporations. How to gain freedom, asset protection and privilege.
A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”
* How to Market your Product. Learn truths that rule the market place. Gain knowledge on subjects like….How to Make the Truth Exciting. Create your own Sales Story. How to Deal With Cultural Differences. How to Build Global Lists and Use International PR. How to Spot the National Psyche and Quadruple Profits With Multimedia Marketing. How to Choose Businesses as Pioneers or as Settlers.
Tom K.,an engineer from Ohio, cashed in on this idea and wrote, “Basically, I learned the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the price!”
* How to Obtain What You Need from the Net. How to Use the Web to Reach your Market. How to develop your site, target your market and start getting visits. The top ten Internet tips to use, the top ten traps to avoid, and many other lessons our Webmaster has used in his 12 years on the net. This system is so simple anyone can use it.
“Thank you for taking the mystery out of business and bringing it down to the ham and eggs level.” L – Chiropractor – Oklahoma”
* The Importance of Business Evolution. It is vital to success and fulfillment that your business has balance and grows in harmony.
Rachel B, a housewife from Washington, enjoyed learning this fact and told us, “The idea of starting at the lowest cost level was terrific.”
* How to Set up your Banking Structure. Take Advantage of International Treaties. Learn all you’ll need about the financial end: How to control inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results, get 30 day free credit and stay on top of your business. Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.
International Business Made EZ contains all these secrets and more.
One delegate, Ted T. a publisher from California said, “Your course is outstanding! Just two hours of study alone were worth more than the price.”
While Kelly, a business woman from Atlanta, exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Even older entrepreneurs are taking advantage of technology. One of our friends and clients, Mickey E., a 72 year old real estate broker, began a small global business. With just a computer and internet, she created publications that attracted English real estate buyers. This allowed her to become a top sales person in the biggest real estate firm (selling over a billion dollars of real estate a year) in town.

An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on an international project. When we came down, we had no idea on what to do.”
There is nowhere else to gain such a unique network of information and help. The contacts are well worth more than the course alone. We have a successful international business with over thousands of readers in 82 countries so you gain practical current business contacts that are active now.

However now due to the accelerated change in global economics, we have added more to our course to create a more powerful program.

More Comments from Readers
“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”
“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”
“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”
There has never been a time when the opportunity for small businesses abroad has been so outstanding. Expand your borders now! Increase your economic security freedom, independence and success. Order now!

Turnkey Businesses… another way to use our course to help build your own micro business… an opportunity to enjoy a head start in your micro business.
Over 40 years of business experience has led us to help many businesses that we have worked with for many years. Each has a unique product or service that we love. These companies are headquartered in many places… Switzerland, Denmark, Ecuador, Spain, Canada as well as the USA and all of them offer global potential… business opportunity almost anywhere.
We write about many of the products of these companies often… though we are not paid.. but just because we like their products and hope you’ll enjoy them too.
We have started a program to help our readers create their own micro business working with these businesses as referrers, dealers and distributors.
We are starting with these five businesses first.
#1: Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM)
#2: Bio Wash
#3: Candace Newman Essential Oils
#5: Ecuador Imbabura Export Products
There is just one qualification to join the program. When you complete the online course International Business Made EZ you will be qualified to enroll for referrer, distributor and dealer programs above and any others we develop. We have started the beta program, and the good news is that we are not charging a penny more more. Our International Business Made EZ online course remains even though we have tripled the courses and added bonuses plus now offer subscribers an entrance to doing business with many turnkey businesses.
The overall service can bring you the following benefits:
#1: Connect you via our our online course “International Business Made EZ” to here and now specific business opportunities.
#2: Keep you in touch with other readers in the program, share business tips, ideas contacts and even website support in some instances.
Take just one of the turnkey business program as an example… Jyske global Asset Management’s referrer plan. A referrer does not have to be a registered as an investment adviser but JGAM does have a due diligence requirement. JGAM will also expect a certain amount of referrals per year though this amount has not been determined… hence this beta offer.
JGAM pays a percentage of their fee to the referrer up to a maximum 25% of their fee. This not only offers an excellent income generating opportunity but creates a potential long term income stream because JGAM keeps paying the fee as long as the client remains a client. Fees are paid on a quarterly basis.
There is also potential for growing long term income because JGAM pays the referrer based on the total assets under management. If a referred client makes additional payments, the referrer will be paid on the total amount.
For example if an referrer refers a client who invests a minimum $100,000 and the annual fee is 2%, the referrer earns $500 per annum basic fee (as long as the customer remains with JGAM)… plus if the assets grow either through portfolio growth or added deposits… so too does the referrer’s fee.
This program will allow subscribers to any of our online courses who have attended an International Business Made EZ seminar to become referrers for JGAM.
We have been working with Jyske Bank for over 20 years and Jyske Global Asset Management, a Jyske Bank wholly owned subsidiary. We started talking to Thomas Fischer Senior VP about an referral program for some time. Finally,we introduced this opportunity for the first time at our June 2011 seminar. The response was overwhelming.
Jyske Bank employs a staff of about 4,000 and operates 116 Danish branches, which makes it the second largest independent Danish bank. They offer a full range of financial solutions to retail as well as small and medium-sized corporate clients.
We have always liked Jyske because they are one of Europe’s largest currency traders and offer very simple but sophisticated multi currency investing services. They are one of Europe’s largest currency traders and dealers.
We have especially enjoyed our business relation with Jyske because being open and honest is one of the core values of the bank group. Traditionally, Jyske formulates and communicates its values – and the way they understand and live by them – to the surrounding world. They work hard offering shareholders, customers and employees balanced opportunity.
We especially like the fact that Jyske employees are not paid bonuses. No multi million pay outs are in the system that might temp staff to distort earnings or take undue risks.
Here is how you can apply for this program.
To start as a referrer, there is first the compliance process with Jyske Bank.
Once that process is complete, our IBEZ system helps educate and assist referrer.
First… once a referrer has been approved by JGAM, and the referrer has completed our online course International Business Made EZ course and met the JGAM staff.
Part of the JGAM program is designed so we can assist referrers by referring readers in their locale to them. So for example if a referrer is in Miami, we will send special emails to our readers in that area, help organize mini seminars… etc.
We can zero in as close as 20 miles to a location so for example we can send a separate email to every reader within 20 miles of the address of a referrer. And although we won’t release the names in that area, we can send them a note of the opportunity.
We will also provide a referrer communication forum and update training as well as portfolio and investing ideas. We have general plans at this stage but find the best way to develop systems is to refine through action. We expect our beta program this year to clarify how we can best help our readers become referrers and how we can help them succeed.
Plus remember you have nothing to risk. Enroll now and have my “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee.” Order The Quantum Innovation Program. If not satisfied just send a note to me canceling the order within 30 days. You will receive a complete and full refund.
We are Not Finished Yet – You also receive a Quantum Thinking Course in the Innovation Program.
Two points almost everyone agrees on about the future are… first we need to be smarter to keep up with the faster pace of change… and second the world’s economy has and will continue to globalize.
This is one reason why we have added our Quantum Thinking Workshop into this program (normally costs $149).
First, we need to be smarter. Quantum Thinking tactics we use help us that and create a new income opportunity.
A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ” says: Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it. Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.
Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows. The increases are usually so incremental that they’re not immediately perceptible to individuals, and the intelligence-boosting effects of cognitive training can fade after a few months.
In the latest study, 33 British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later by researchers at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London; 9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.
On a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age, says Cathy Price, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the center and co-author of the study, published last month in Nature.
Swings in individual IQ scores are often written off as the product of measurement error or a test subject having a bad day. But MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kids’ skills, Dr. Price says. Although the sample size is small, the study drew wide attention because it is among the first to show how changes in IQ scores may be reflected in actual shifts in brain structure.
There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes. A 30-year study at the National Institute of Mental Health found that people whose work involves complex relationships, setting up elaborate systems or dealing with people or difficult problems, tend to perform better over time on cognitive tests. Test scores of people whose jobs are simple and require little thought actually tend to decline, according to the research, published in 1999 in Psychology and Aging.
New tasks stimulate the brain most. When researchers at the University of Hamburg subjected 20 young adults to one month of intense training in juggling, they found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began. The added gray matter receded when the training was stopped, although the participants were still able to juggle, says the study, published in 2008 in PLoS One.
IQ tests don’t measure such abilities as creativity, common sense or social sensitivity. They do assess many kinds of knowledge and abilities, including abstract reasoning skills. Rising scores in abstract reasoning are the main reason average IQ scores have been increasing by about three points every decade since the 1930s, based on studies by James Flynn, a professor emeritus of political studies at the University of Otago in New Zealand. That may be partly because children spend nearly twice as many years in school, on average, than children decades ago, says Wendy M. Williams, a professor in the department of human development at Cornell University.
Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of a complex job, musical training, advanced schooling and new experiences throughout a lifetime.
Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life, according to research by E. Glenn Schellenberg, a psychology professor at the University of Toronto at Mississauga. Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points; those gains eroded to two points by college age, says a study published in 2006 in the Journal of Educational Psychology.
Quantum Thinking comes when we improve the brain in three ways… one being through the use of music. Quantum thinking tactics, first of all, helps people become smarter.
The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a different form of relaxation through brain wave integration frequency modulation so we work in a mode described as “Relaxed Concentration.” This mental process opens enormous opportunity for expansion, understanding, peacefulness as well as greater wealth. We have added this in-depth workshop into the Innovation Program.
Quantum Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. This brings forth the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
Merri and I are explorers. Our business began 44 years ago (May 1968) and we continue to always look for what’s next… trying to stay on or ahead of the leading edge.
This process helped us create the totally unique system we use that incorporates numerous tactics.
The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
This one tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method call the Lozanov learning system is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programers and operators of automated equipment.
Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Dr. Georgi Lozanov and is licensed in these techniques.
Merri has enhanced this system with numerous other tactics. One is to make slight alterations in nutrition. Altered nutrition can make anyone a person 25% smarter. These two tactics are given in seven, easy to use learning techniques that help gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages… in much less time than traditional learning techniques… often two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways…but most of all it is a system that is stress free and full of fun.
Our Quantum Learning System helps in innumerable walks of life.
Problems Can Create Opportunity
There is a huge and growing problem of accelerating change that requires accelerated learning. Expanded learning capacity is the most valuable part of this program. So we added our Quantum Thinking Workshop.
Quantum Thinking works by focusing on the learner first… the data second. FM Plus “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information. The explosion of data we must all process every day means there is too much information to process already. Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner” means.
If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information. The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!
