Pinnacle Export Career


Exporting can provide an excellent pinnacle career.

Pinnacle careers are the ones that fill your destiny.  For many such careers mean a move… travel beyond borders… broader horizons and greater freedom.

The export business creates such a lifestyle and career.

Consider this idea for exporting Ecuador oranges.

A recent article entitled Ecuador: “Producers of citrus fruits will start exporting” started me thinking about how we can put two and two together and come up with more than four.

Consider three facts.

First, The US orange production is under pressure.  The spread of Citrus greening is now in every Florida citrus county and production costs are at their higher level ever.  Increased citrus imports to the USA could result.

Second, Ecuador is cranking up its citrus production.  The article “Producers of citrus fruits will start exporting” says: A citrus processing factory, which is expected to hold northern production and promote its sale abroad, will start operating in two months.

Investors in Spain and France sponsor the close to $5 million dollar project.

The construction and commissioning of the factory was the result of a field study, which identified the need for a place to process the high production of tangerines and oranges in the states of Chone, Flavio Alfaro and El Carmen, among others.

Jaminton Intriago, Mayor of Flavio Alfaro and one of the owners of the factory, said that they were making the final adjustments to the implements responsible for processing, canning and extracting the fruit’s juices to be exported to Europe.

“Everything is ready and we’ll start the testing phase in the coming days so that, when everything is ready, nothing will stop work. We needed a company that added value to citrus production in Manabi,” said Intriago.

The factory will employ more than 300 people, considering that the machinery is able to operate 24 hours.

The National Finance Corporation loaned the money to fund the project. “The objective is to consolidate ourselves at the national level with this innovative company and to take advantage of the production in the North,” said Intriago.

Third,  there is a little known way to economically enhance citrus production with Biowash.

We have written about our use of Biowash in our groves but let me reiterate what this has done for our orange crop.

The year we took over the grove there were 1,500 trees and they produced 1801 boxes of oranges.

In other words, the average was a yield of about 1.2 boxes of naval oranges a tree.

We removed one third of the lower producing diseased trees in a grove management plan. We sprayed the remaining 2/3rd with Bio Wash.

Our first year of production the average yield was 2.4 boxes a tree… double.   This increased the income of the grove 37% with 33% less trees.

With 500 fewer trees, the grove produced 2,484 boxes of oranges that year!  That’s doubled production but this was to get even  better.

We doubled the Biowash spray in 2011 and production rose to 3,393 boxes.

Last year we decided to do some more serious tests.

We tested Biowash.

There is more to this than just the increased yield. Biowash might make the crop more valuable.

Some products using Biowash have become known as “pesticide free” and/or “reduced fertilized”.

I believe that pesticide free” or “reduced fertilized” oranges may be worth more so I began testing in our orange grove.   Last June my grandson, Garren, and I loaded up the Cub Cadet with flagging ribbon… went out into our orange grove and set up four test zones… each at an opposite extreme from one another.

gary-scott-orange-tests

Garren helping me set up our tests.

In each zone we selected sick, healthy and new trees.

L1010805

A sick tree in our grove flagged yellow.

L1010804

A healthy tree and…

L1010806

new orange trees.

Plus I had three grapefruit trees that all appeared a little sick and sprayed one with bio wash, one soil amendment and did not spray one.

Our goal is to produce bigger… healthier oranges in a process that requires less fertilizer and little or no pesticides.  Here are the results after six months.

At the beginning of the experiment we poked holes around each tree and drenched the roots.   Each tree was drenched with 25 gallons of a solution mixed from  10 ounces of Bio Wash or Soil Amendment to 40 gallons of water.   We then sprayed each tree once a month with about ten gallons per tree sprayed.

Here are the first results.

#1: The young growing trees looked about equal to the best non sprayed young trees.

The positive I can say here is that all the young sprayed trees were at the top of the growth range.  There were some non sprayed trees. This was not so with the sprayed trees. They had all enjoyed strong growth.

#2: I could not see much difference in mature fruit bearing trees.

If anything the sprayed trees looked fuller but with less fruit.

#3: Of the three grapefruit trees the bio washed tree was definitely best.

The pictures do not show this well, but the non sprayed grapefruit fruit was small, the leaves spotted and tending toward yellow.

Gary Scott bio wash

The sprayed grapefruit trees were greener, had much larger fruit and a black mold that gets on the fruit was absent.

#4: The sick and nearly dead trees showed the most profound change.

Gary Scott bio wash

Most of the sick trees looked dead like this when we began the test.

Some truly were dead and remained looking that way.

Some had a little growth.

Some had a lot of growth like this.

Gary Scott bio wash

Some even had fruit.

This tree looked like a dead stump last June.

Gary Scott bio wash

We maintained the level of spray and in 2012 production with the Biowash spray was about the same as 2011 2,934 boxes.  This minor variation suggests that the good results from the spray are lasting.

You can tie these three facts… US citrus problems… Ecuador’s fledgling citrus exports and the agri benefit of Biowash as an export idea.

Biowash is available in Ecuador and there is a new distributor.

Ted Tidwell who makes Biowash recently wrote:  Gary, Carlos Harris now has a good supply of Biowash and Purelygreen in Ecuador.

How We Can Help You Write to Sell Exports.

We offer an online course.  Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell for $299.  Enroll here.

Even Better!  We offer a year long program including attendance to a Writer’s Camp.  You receive the  online course “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell” free and save $299.

Writer’s Camps – Join Us & Learn to Write to Sell

Attend our Writer’s Camp in Florida this winter.   When you enroll, you start immediately with our online course “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” (normally $299) which we send FREE.

Our Writer’s Camps help you learn writing to sell… the business of writing and how to publish.  

February 13-14-15, 2015  Friday, Saturday, Sunday.  Super Thinking Writer’s Camp, Mt. Dora, Fl. (Normally $799 or $999 for a couple)

My wife, Merri, and I have possibly the smallest… yet one of the highest earning… self publishing company in the world.

Our high earnings come from writing, self publishing secrets we learned and refined over the past 45 years of writing to sell.  These secrets have worked so well they have earned extra millions for Merri and me and we share them at our writer’s camps..

Our goal at the camps are to help you “Get Started”… but to “Start Small” and maybe like us stay that way… small… tightly focus but highly profitable.

45 years ago I started writing because I was broke.  These problems over 40 years ago affected me for life.  In fact I am so hung up on this that that Merri and I (we are so thankful that we can) give away money to help create jobs… we have now donated close to a million dollars in our quest to reduce joblessness.

Fortunately we do not have to work for money now.  In fact we kinda retired almost 20 years ago. Now we do what we love and that happens to be writing!

Merri and I are writers and self publishers.  Merri and I began publishing with no money and little background. We started small! As already mentioned, I was bust and had no background in writing. I did not finish college.  Yet we have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.

Our self publishing business has brought us millions. We own five houses, a farmhouse, six cabins and over 1,000 acres of land. Plus more money than we can spend, in the bank… safe, secure bonds and shares… no mortgages… no credit card bills and zero debt! We always make an annual six figure income but some years we bring in seven figures…over a million dollars.  That’s because we figured out that the lion’s share of income earned from writing goes to the publisher.

Now we write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We want to share these secrets with you so you can make a strong income and follow your destiny in a way that suits you and that you love.

There is more good news than the money.  The secrets we share make working fun. You are your own boss. You gain respect so your ideas are listened to.

Most important you can be self fulfilled as you make the world a better place by writing.

We want the work on your publication to begin right away…. tomorrow even.  I’ll explain how you can begin right away in a moment.

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!

gary-scott-image

Here I am at our Florida home… at work?

gary scott

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.

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.

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.  We will look at how published products can include compilations, catalogues, CDS, interviews. Plus we’ll look at how to develop treks, tours, visits, products and services.

For example, you’ll see below 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.  I invite them to our home… to see what ideas we can share and how we can learn from one another.

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%.

You gain freedom because you can write anywhere… even part time.

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.

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.

Small self publishers are in a win – win situation for many reasons.  If you love to travel self publishing can help make this possible and… by the way… perhaps turn your trips into a tax deductible expense.

The workshop provides a Path called the seven Ps. They provide a simple, small and easy path for starting your own publishing business.

The writer’s camp refines both Merri’s and my 40 years of experience into its most essential points. All of us will have to work intensely to cram everything into three days.

This workshop is conducted by Merri and me.  These camps are intimate which allows us to personally work with each delegate to assure that all who attend can create their own publication.

P.S. This is a chance to experience the dream life of a writer and self publisher.

We are going to work hard the entire time from now until the camp but the effects of this retreat won’t end on day 3. They’ll just begin.

One of the finest benefits you gain will be new like-minded friends. Our previous workshop delegates have stuck together…formed support groups and helped each other develop, grow and profit. This is called an “old boys network” in some places. Every major university and educational system has one…this invisible power because “who you know”, not just “what you know” works. We’ll encourage this so your alumni group can enhance your efforts whenever required.

May I share three final examples of how big, your little self publishing business can become 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!”

We share David Cross videos and Skype sessions at the camp.

David has an unparalleled, hands-on marketing experience spanning 25 years in 22 countries for companies and charities large and small. He’s guided many companies and individuals to success in business and helped them achieve their marketing goals, both online and offline.   He started working with the internet from the getgo and we have been lucky that he helped us start our website in the 1990s.  He was also 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 until he came to work with Merri and me full time.
