Andean Pathways to Purity and Longevity


The pathway to our destiny and greatest success begins every day with a positive attitude that seeks solutions to any problem, challenge in the hours ahead.  When the body is light, bright and flexible…the heart and mind follow.  The light that reveals the greatest avenues of accomplishment shines most brightly from a clean, clear mind and body.

Every individual’s challenge is to maintain a purity in an increasingly toxic world.

There are poison problems from toxic chemicals that infect almost everyone, nearly every day.

These poisons can be in our food. They can be in our medicine. They can be on our clothes, our car, our pots and pans, water, air and teeth and just about anywhere.

We are all aware that there are growing amounts of toxicity we must face in the modern world.   How do we get these toxins out of our bodies?

This problem (and seven solutions) are described in a new report “Andean Longevity Purification Health Secrets” that you can access free of charge.

Here is an excerpt.

Imagine this. You maintain natural good health.   You eat a good diet with good food.

Though prices are higher, you shop at Whole Foods, pick only organic or pesticide free… get only water that is in BPA-free water bottles and carefully stay away from BPA-filled canned food.

You check out and cringe at the higher prices as you examine the receipt.  Yet the extra cost is worth avoiding BPA.

You pony up the extra cash, get your change and leave, feeling good…  because you did not know that you were still just then contaminated with BPA…  twice!

We are exposed to many uncommon toxicities in the most common ways.  Numerous poisons are hidden in plain sight and are really hard to avoid.

Fortunately there are simple steps we can help us regain our health and rid ourselves of toxins in our system.

This is why I hope that you will enjoy the free report, “Andean Longevity Purification Health Secrets”.

There are two even more insidious ways that you are polluted with BPA, often daily.  Get the free report “Andean Longevity Purification Secrets”.    See where you routinely are exposed to BPA every day.  Then see simple ways to eliminate these toxins that surround us.

New Ecuador Opportunities


Here are three new Ecuador opportunities.

The first is environmental as shown in this excerpt from an article:

Ecuadoran President Confirms Deal to Leave Oil Under Yasuni Park

QUITO, Ecuador, April 26, 2010 (ENS) – President Raphael Correa now has approved an agreement to leave Ecuador’s largest oil reserves, amounting to some 900 million barrels, underground in Yasuni National Park in exchange for more than $3 billion.

Under the unprecedented agreement, known as the Yasuni-ITT Initiative, the government of Ecuador will refrain from exploiting the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini oil field within the Amazon rainforest park, which scientists have determined to be the most biodiverse area in all of South America.

The agreement between Ecuador and the United Nations Development Programme creating a trust fund to receive donations to the Yasuni-ITT Initiative was nearly signed in December at the UN climate summit in Copenhagen, but at the last minute, President Correa instructed his negotiators to hold back until several sticking points were resolved.

The second opportunity comes in the form of a new shop in Cotacachi named Wakya. See Wakya here.

The third opportunity is beginning this September.

As of August 1st, Jean Marie Butterlin (whom we have been working with for some years) has acquired our Ecuador tour business.

Jean Marie has added some new tours and expanded the length of others, so see the new schedule below.

Jean Marie Butterlin, was born in France and after graduating in 1977 from the engineering college ICAM in Lille (France) moved to United States where he developed a homeopathic and dietary supplement business in Houston TX, with an aim at exporting the US made products  into Europe, with emphasis towards Belgium and France.

Jean Marie Butterlin.

After living part time on both sides of the Atlantic he moved back  in 2002 to Europe where he has a prosperous business in the natural health field i.e. phytotherapy, mineral supplements, specialty cosmetics, as well as Quantum medical technology, internet publishing for the anti-aging market.

This quest for anti-aging remedies, products and techniques has lead him to discover Ecuador with its valleys of longevity, where he is researching and developing new approaches to live longer and better and bringing the new products and techniques to more and more people in the United States and Europe.

Jean Marie moved with his family to Cotacachi last year.

International club members will still attend all 2010 tours free.

Ancient Thinking Comes Round


There was great wisdom in a lot of ancient thinking.

Ecuador-shamans

See below how symbols like this can help you find value in real estate today.

What goes around, comes around… so many of the ideas that are now called modern science have been with mankind for thousands of years.

Around 3500 BC, the Mesopotamians began to attempt to record some observations of the world with extremely thorough numerical data.

Records of Pythagoras’ law in tablets dated as the 18th century BC.

Babylonian astronomy is still widely used in Western calendars.

Ancient Egyptian science included astronomy, mathematics and medicine including analysis of the brain that have been called “the very beginnings of modern neuroscience”.

Vital legacies of science included factual knowledge, especially in anatomy, zoology, botany, mineralogy, geography, mathematics and astronomy; an awareness of the importance of certain scientific problems, especially those related to the problem of change and its causes; and a recognition of the methodological importance of applying mathematics to natural phenomena and of undertaking empirical research.

The influence of this thought led one generation of science to the next.

Great knowledge has been known for thousands of years and when we look back at this knowledge we find ourselves on the threshold of modern science.

Low Costs

Our seminar and tour fees remain as they were in 2007 and 2008.  Merri and I run our business from home and our internet only structure keeps our overheads low.   By conducting many smaller tours we keep our staff at a minimum so our fees run as low as a third of what other seminar and tour companies charge… yet again and again we are told that they are the best.. most personal and of course we have way more experience than anyone else. We are not selling real estate but are simply offering tours to help you to understand the country, the areas, the prices so you can make an informed decision.

In addition we do not accept commissions or any form of compensation from hotels where our delegates stay, or from sellers of real estate on our tours. Instead we negotiate low room rates and try to get real estate sellers to offer discounts to our our tour delegates.

Split Sessions Available North and South

Our new split session seminars help those who have asked to attend courses but who cannot make it to Ecuador right now.  These courses… both our International Business & Investing and Super Thinking + Spanish seminars will have the first session conducted in Central Florida (Mt. Dora) or the Blue Ridge in North Carolina.   Then those who choose the second optional session can travel to Ecuador for the remaining real estate or shamanic minga tours that follow immediately after the first session.

Enjoy Optional Group Travel

Split session delegates can travel to Ecuador in a group with our staff and we’ll try to negotiate special low cost fares.

Three New Real Estate Tour Destinations

We have added Quito, Mindo and Cuenca real estate tours.  We want you to experience more of the beauty and joys of Ecuador!

Quantum Wealth

We have also added (at no cost) a one day Quantum Wealth course to our International Investment & Business Courses.

This course teaches similar knowledge provided in our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven, ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the mind, memory, recall, retention and decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness.

This is not a gimmick or a trick… just advanced education. 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.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of Raja Yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better…thus making better and clearer decisions for wealth and health.

The book exposed this fact making it so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system. Merri’s modified system shares her knowledge on how to think and learn more powerfully in our Spanish courses.  Now we are adapting this science to help delegates have better investing and business.

The learning system expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

Quantum Wealth changes the way a person thinks and learns forever.

The techniques help unlock the quantum potential that all people possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make anyone a startling 25% smarter, how subliminal messages can increase energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.  This is the system that we use for building wealth and for making decisions.

This Super Thinking system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 plus includes techniques and strategies that Merri has gained in her 41 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows how to increase mental power for success in a 21st century that is overwhelmed by information. The system is built from old and new sources ranging from raja yoga to contemporary unorthodox science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

Five Options

Each month delegates can choose to come to one, two, three, four or all five seminars and tours conducted in the month.  Multi tour adventures provide additional discounts.

Be sure to read tomorrow’s message which explains how to (save up to $35,449) attend as many of these seminars and tours as you desire FREE!

Gary

Comments from a real estate tour delegate:  Gary, A special thank you for the real estate tours that you provide. John and I did a lot of research and chose Ecuador as our first choice. Our visit in June exceeded our expectations of the info that we had gathered about the country. Ecuador also meets our top seven priorities: Cost of living, Climate, Cost of real estate, Heath care, Access to high speed internet, Accessibilty to the States and over all safety.  Our dream has always been to live on the beach and moving to Ecuador will make that dream come true.  Again, a big thank you for helping us make that dream come true.

Head south to Ecuador!

Comments from a Super Thinking + Spanish delegate:  I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you!  Saludos!

Nov. 9-10 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Nov. 11-14 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

From a real estate buyer in Ecuador.  Hello Again Gary,  I am just outside Salinas in Punta Blanca I remember you saying a decade ago to start there. I have seen the price on land here jump directly on the beach now $300 to $500 a square meter and off the beach $80 to $100 square meter and the lots are not big an average lot is 250 square meters. I bought several lots in this area for less than half of the asking price today. I remember seeing a article about that you wrote a decade ago that you were able to buy lot’s here in Punta Blanca for a couple to a few thousand.  You also used Naples Florida as an example this I why I bought here in Punta Blanca YOU WERE RIGHT! It all started the night I came back from my first trip when I came across your website. If it was not for the knowledge that you share and international living none of this would have gone as smooth as it has. So Thank You Gary!

December 11-13 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

Comments from delegates at our International Business & Investing Course.  We so enjoyed attending the IBEZ Seminar this past weekend in Jefferson, NC.  We loved the high country area, the nice people we met and particularly enjoyed the visit and tour of the New River Winery.  We were lucky to sit at a table with four utterly charming southern women, one of whom was Haskell’s wife.  As a retiree who saw her retirement sustain considerable loss due to the economy, I found the information you presented during the three days to be extremely helpful and showed a plausible way for me to have some recovery.  Besides all of the relevant information, your emphasis on honesty and the importance of not be deceptive was reassuring.  The bottom line is, that what gave real value to the information we were receiving and what made us feel comfortable was, that we felt you, Thomas and David were all people of good character.  Something that is very important to us.  We intend to do business with JGAM and Jyske Bank very soon.

Join us in the mountains and at the sea.  Attend more than one seminar and tour and save even more plus get the three emailed courses free.

Ecuador & Bank Privacy


Bank privacy no longer exists. Some years ago I wrote about the insidious tactics that the US and other governments have used to erode financial privacy and personal liberty and pointed out that the problem is that the government does not attack the individual but puts the pressure on the overseas financial institutions. The current additional move by the US government to collect tax is just one more small step.

The quote above might make it seem like I was years ahead of the curve writing about the loss of privacy some years ago.

Actually I was way ahead of the curve because that quote comes from one of the earlier articles posted at this site on July  13, 2000. See that July 2000 article.

However,  may I remind you that the sunshine not only always shines somewhere, it always rises everywhere… every day!

Yesterday’s message looked at Ecuador sunrises and sunsets.

The sun also rises here in the USA.  I took these shots at our farm and…

ecuador-sunrise

and near the farm on the way to the Farmer’s Market.

ecuador-sunset

Glorious.

We live in a quantum world.  Those earthly laws that Newton so accurately described really do seem to work with apples… yet science suggests that our world is not so predictable… every moment… every place contains infinite potentiality for change… something different… something new… something good… or bad.

There are wonderful aspects of living in most places. This is why Merri and I live in Florida, the Blue Ridge and Ecuador.

This is why I have been warning readers since the 1980s to never… ever… hide wealth.  Use legal means of attaining privacy.

These warnings have related mostly to Americans, British and Germans.  These have been the most determined and aggressive taxing authorities.

These warnings have been is a good thing too.  Here is one reason why.

A June 17, 2009 New York Times article entitled E-Mail Surveillance Renews Concerns in Congress shows even deeper concern, explains how bank privacy is really dead.   An excerpt from this article (a link to the entire article is at the end of this message) says:.

The National Security Agency is facing renewed scrutiny over the extent of its domestic surveillance program, with critics in Congress saying its recent intercepts of the private telephone calls and e-mail messages of Americans are broader than previously acknowledged, current and former officials said.

The agency’s monitoring of domestic e-mail messages, in particular, has posed longstanding legal and logistical difficulties, the officials said.

Since April, when it was disclosed that the intercepts of some private communications of Americans went beyond legal limits in late 2008 and early 2009, several Congressional committees have been investigating. Those inquiries have led to concerns in Congress about the agency’s ability to collect and read domestic e-mail messages of Americans on a widespread basis, officials said. Supporting that conclusion is the account of a former N.S.A. analyst who, in a series of interviews, described being trained in 2005 for a program in which the agency routinely examined large volumes of Americans’ e-mail messages without court warrants. Two intelligence officials confirmed that the program was still in operation.

In short not only is bank privacy dead… privacy is dead… morte… gone…finito.

These warnings seem to include Ecuador as well.

Two recent messages, one Ecuador & Banking about new Ecuador financial reporting regulations, and the other Ecuador & Social Security US Social Security regulations relating to those who live and work abroad.

These messages evoked a number of responses from readers asking “How would Ecuador’s tax man know what wealth I have abroad?” and  “How would the Social Security administration know  if I earn in Ecuador?”

My reply is “I do not know how they would know… but I do not do it and do not recommend this because one never knows what will happen!”

There are so many ways the future could be revealed us… but let me give you a clue of just one example where someone hiding wealth could be caught.

My last two Ecuador Living updates outlined details about Ecuador Bank ATM fraud where over 40 people had their accounts cleaned out and how the Ecuador banks immediately made the losses good.   See these updates as an Ecuador Living subscriber.

If there was a cooperation between US and Ecuador authorities investigating this fraud… details of earnings in Ecuador could end up in the US (including SS admin) and details of US wealth could end up in the hands of Ecuador authorities.

We are in a new era of privacy that I have watched unfold during 41 years of doing international investing and business.   Half a decade ago, this site sent this warning in an article The Ultimate Form of Financial Privacy

One should not hide money abroad and rely on bank privacy to protect them. Forget about government attacks. These are bad enough but I cannot begin to tell you the horror stories I have crossed in the past three decades in which bank privacy was blown by bank errors. For example, a London bank mistakenly mailed me the secret bank account of an Iranian diplomat who was hiding money in London. A Viennese banker inadvertently faxed me four pages of private information that could have put several people in serious trouble.  Even a Swiss banker once left his client list with names, addressees and account numbers laying on a table at a seminar were I was speaking with him!

In addition to the onslaught of governments to reduce privacy, there are just too many ways for your wealth to be revealed to use secrecy as a wealth protection tool.

Look for legal ways to keep your financial affairs private instead.

This is why, our friend and attorney, Joe Cox,  joined me and Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM)  at the recent International Investment Seminar in Naples  Florida.

bank-privacy

Last month Merri and I co-hosted this  seminar with JGAM. Here is Thomas Fischer opening the seminar.

This is why Ecuador’s new financial reporting law and why the overseas Social Security regulations do not bother me much. This is just one more issue to deal with in an increasingly crowded and complicated world.

So let me reiterate what I have been writing for decades.

Bank privacy is dead.  Do not try to hide money.  Use as many legal tactics as you can to preserve your wealth…always keep it legal. This is a never ending game and the opponent… taxation authorities play hardball and they play rough.

Here are three valuable contacts who can help you maintain legal bank privacy.

Joe Cox, our friend and US attorney.

Floridalva Zambrano, our friend and Ecuador attorney.

Thomas Fischer, our friend and overseas banker.

You can get more information direct:

Joe Cox: jcox@coxnici.com

Floridavla Zambrano: FLORIFLORI58@YAHOO.ES

Thomas Fischer: fischer@jgam.com

Non US residents contact Reny Mathys instead of Thomas Fischer: mathys@jbpb.dk

These contacts know of each other and can help you create a coordinated plan between US Ecuadorian and international banking laws that maintains legal privacy and asset protection.

Plus keep your perspective. The sun shines somewhere everyday. It is the sun we should seek… not to avoid the clouds.

Merri and I love our life in the Blue Ridge… the rushing streams and…

the spring flowers peeking into our kitchen.

The greatest benefits to living globally  are broadened horizons… larger families, expanded experiences… deeper awareness of the infinite ways that beauty in life can unfold… not tax or privacy benefits.

We love our life in Florida here is a view from one of the houses in our house buying trip.

Plus we love our Andean family at Meson… everyone of them.

and the majestic mountain views from our condo there.

ecuador-banks

And we love walking Ecuador’s broad beach at our Pamazul apartment

ecuador-banks

We take any tax and asset protection our lifestyle brings, but the lifestyle is driven by the seeking of joy and wonderful living. The financial aspects follow.

One gains greater economic opportunity with global investing and business… bigger markets.. more distortions to see… additional trends to emerge.

Don’t diminish all the beautiful  sunshine with clouds of financial worry.

Regards,

Gary

We hope you’ll enjoy a beautiful global lifestyle with us soon in the Blue Ridge or Ecuador.

Ecuador’s Energy


Ecuador’s energy is important because investing, business and health ideas are everywhere when you give yourself a chance to stop and listen.

This is one reason Merri and I live in nature at our North Carolina farm and live in a quiet Andean village here in Ecuador.

This is why we take delegates to quiet places on our Ecuador tours.  Here for example is a shot that our friend Dennis Goff took during lunch on our latest Ecuador real estate tour…. Lake Quicocha.

ecuador-energy A property, by the way, right next door is for sale. I do not have a picture of that house.

The tour also looked at another house (shown below) for sale in Cotacachi. this was  popular on the tour…because

ecuador-energy

it is in a quiet place and it has a quiet garden directly below the house.

ecuador-energy

Here are Ecuador real estate tour delegates checking the house.

ecuador-energy

We are energy and we are surrounded by energy that affects our thinking, our health and our health.  Energy is frequency and Ecuador’s shaman’s practice frequency medicine.

Delegates at our import export course visited a shamana yesterday to learn more about energy.  Here is a shot from the shamans place… more on this comes in a later message.

ecuador-energy

This is why we do not have a TV… to eliminate the noise… so we can listen…. so we can get in tune with nature’s frequency.

This is why we have scientists who are experts on frequency, like Bob Shane, come during our courses.   He has been busy consulting delegates every single day.  Learn more about Bob’s work here.

This is also why we  developed a quiet seminar center at our  North Carolina farm.  Here is a shot of our seminar center on the farm.

ecuador-energy

The deck extends into the woods.

With this view below.

ecuador-energy

We gain a lot of great multi currency, investing, business and health information from the energy of Ecuador, North Carolina and all places quiet.

We continually have really wonderful people come to our centers to share valuable ideas on frequency and energy.

One wise man who spoke at our farm is Raymon Grace.  He had an interesting group there. I was impressed with what he shared and as a consequence Raymon sends me an email once in awhile.

Recently he shared this note about energy

Howdy Friends,  Many of you have written because of your concerns about the economy and world conditions in general. Well, I’m the wrong person to ask about things like that as I have little knowledge of world economics.

However, I may have a bit of experience with changing energy.

As most of you know, our work is based on a few simple principles.

All things are composed of energy and the intelligent mind can direct energy

Energy is impressed upon matter

Energy follows thought

If we think of a past event that causes us to become angry, we are likely to create a feeling of anger.

If we think of a past event that was fearful, we will create fear.

If we think of a past event that was funny, we will laugh.

Ok, so what happens when we regularly read papers and magazines telling us how bad things are? TV news makes a stronger impression on our mind.

When we buy into the opinions and commentaries of those in the news media, we are letting them tell us what to think. It seems that many people have either forgotten how to think or perhaps they never learned, so they let someone else do their thinking for them. We are affected by what we hear, see and experience, whether we like it or not.

So how do we stop being influenced by the bad news?

Here is how I do it.—– Don’t listen to it.

On most any situation I ask, “Will my life be better or worse because of this?”

This is why I am pleased that Jyske Global Asset Management chose a quiet time of the year to have a multi currency investment seminar in Naples Florida.

Merri and I lived in Naples opver 20 years. The shot below was taken just a block from our house and we know that May and October are the quiet months with the best weather.

Ecuador-energy

This investment seinar will have numerous speakers with enormous knowledge about world economics… such as Thomas Fischer… John Mauldin… Micheal Checkan ad the other multi currency exports who will join me for Jyske Global Asset Management’s  Multi Currency Florida Investment Course

One idea we’ll look at during this multi currency course is how to select safe currencies that offer maximum return and have potential for gains against the US dollar.

Until next message, good global investing!

Merri, our webmaster and I have created a new course on how to build a web business with a webmaster.  Here is a special offer on this new course.

You can enroll in this special course for $299. However if you sign up for three courses in any one month.

Tangled Webs – A Web Business Course – Introduction


Tangled Webs – A Web Business Course

Introduction

White lights sparkle from barren Sloane Square trees onto Peter Jones department store displays.  Chelsea, London…around January 1972. I was walking up the King’s Road. London’s weather was damp and cold but my spirits were high.  The fountain in the square bubbled. Taxis wheezed their oily rattle and the tube rumbled below.  This was where the action was…for me at least then.

I had left my business in Hong Kong and moved to London…living on Radnor Walk just off the King’s Road near the Radnor Arms pub…a perfect place for a twenty  something year old to be…then.

Fast forward…40 years.  Merri and I still love London…for maybe three days…then we retire quickly to our quiet Andean, Blue Ridge or Pacific beach retreats.   Times and tastes change. As do wants…needs and desires.

Welcome to this course, “The Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Internet Business.”   A course that can help you change …  survive … prosper and welcome change.  Because life is change and change brings tangled webs.

This course is being written now but was really researched on the turbulent waters of the South China Sea…along the King’s Road Chelsea…by the black walls of Edinburgh Castle…on the gentle slopes of Cotswold hills, on Copenhagen docks and along the soft sands of the Gulf of Mexico.

Throw in a pinch of North Carolina woods, Andean mountains, technology and fate…and you have this course about how to get ahead of the tangle with the web. Never before has it been possible for an individual with capital to build a business…survive…do well and even beat big business because of change and the web.

This is because Tangled Webs is a course about how to create your own business…on the web…the internet and we must plunge much deeper then just business and internet technology to truly understand the web.   This electronic virtual world is just a reflection and tool in a much bigger…deeper…real web.

For years, one of my favorite success sayings has been that the three most important choices we make in life are; who our parents will be, what country we are born in, and where we are standing when the volcano explodes.

In short  business… the world… the universe… existence… all of life…is a tangled web… that has been spun and continues to spin from almost imperceptible threads.

These threads, spun from our hidden unwinding, have brought us to the internet…as a reflection of who we have been…what we now are and who we will become.

Consequently a course on just the internet would be like a car without an engine. A course just about the internet and business would be a complete car but without a driver.   Plus we need to include the journey and destination as well!

Tangled Web weaves the history of Merri’s and my business … how it evolved … how it morphed from a print publishing business to internet only and how we use websites and email in business now.

We’ll look at how to create websites using the seven Ps…

Passion
Problem
Person
Profitably Priced Product
Prospecting Path
Promise
Presentation

We’ll let our webmaster examine all the technical aspects of how to run an internet business:

Search Engine Optimization
Pay Per Click
Landing Pages
Email Generators
List Controllers
Shopping Carts
Servers

Yet we’ll dig deeper, right to the essence of a successful internet business that successfully untangles the web because I suspect that this course has the possibility to go out of date faster than any I have ever written before. The Internet evolves so quickly and there are always new things being added. It’s enough to make your head spin.

But what you will learn here are the fundamentals that work in business on the Internet. We’ll cut through the fog and show you what works for us and how to build a solid business regardless of what changes come about in technology, search engines or what the new “Internet fad” may be.

We will also deal with evolution and fate… how they work in business and how they can help your web business grow from this starting point.

This course will end differently than foreseen. Each sentence shared has potential to spark new ideas.  Your questions, as the course unfolds, will undoubtedly alter the course of this course.

I can almost guarantee that your business will not evolve exactly as you imagined either.  Business plans are guesstimates that help improve a business as it grows…but rarely a real guide.  Experience refines and improves us as our act of doing a business teaches us.  We can never see what we do not know. Only doing reveals this.  Plus technology and fate mix into our progress as well.

Let’s go back to that winter walk down the King’s Road about 40 years years ago. I could not have imagined that being there would mean my son (to be born years away) would be British.  I could not have looked at the many shop windows there and seen in their reflection that he would go to the University in Edinburgh many years later.

I would have missed my visit to that Scottish city to find a meditation teacher for my son…nor that I would give that teacher one of my courses on how to have an international business.  How could I have known that this would lead that teacher to publish his own book that would so impress a Swedish computer whiz that he hired the teacher to work in his computer firm where he learned his internet skills.
Nor would I have known how that at teacher’s suggestion a decade later I would start my website which would eventually become a huge portion of our business.

What a tangled unforeseeable web..that turned out so well.

None of this was in my business plan!  Nor will the unseen threads that tangle the web of your life and business be in yours.

So what do we know about this course?

We know:

#1: That the the facts…figures…principles and ideas we’ll share, if applied will work for your business right now.

#2: That these lessons will prepare you for a web based business in the here and now that is in a position to evolve with the internet as it continues to shift and grow.

#3: That you can make millions in this type of business as I have.

#4: That this business can give you enormous freedom because you can operate anywhere.  This introduction was written in a tiny Andean village in Ecuador.  The outline below was written at our deep woods Blue Ridge farm.  The work before and the words scribbled next week will be on the Pacific coast. This year, I’ll likely send you messages from Florida, Oregon, London, Copenhagen, as well as North Carolina and Ecuador…plus who knows where.

#5: We’ll make this course fun…because in the end this course is about how to create an enjoyable business journey transported over the web.

Here are the lessons we have planned now.

#1: How My Internet Business Began

#2: Our Results – How We Boost sales

#3: Seven Ps PASSION – PERSON – PROBLEM – PROSPECTING PATH – PROMISE – PRESENTATION – PROFITABLE PRICE

#4: Turn Passion to Profit.

#5: How to Identify your prospects.

#6: How to identify problems.

#7: How to choose prospecting path. SEO – PPC – Strategic Alliance – Referals – Viral marketing.

#8: How to create ads.

#9: How to create landing pages.

#10: How to develop Presentation (marketing string).

#11: How to choose and test price.

#12: How & why to create daily messages.

#13: Multi product development…free reports…free ezines…paid subscriptions…seminars…tours ,,,personal services…clubs etc. How one product leads to another.  Advertising and especially the long tail.

#14: How to manage your business finances.

Each course will also have a home work assignment…studying  a website. So let’s start with Merri’s and mine. Visit:
