Ecuador Christmas Roses


Merri and I received our first Christmas gift yesterday.  50 fresh Christmas roses from Ecuador.

You can order the 50 fresh cut roses for $79 ($20 is donated to help Ecuador’s poor) here.

Here they are.

The other half went in our living room in front of the fireplace.

I learned last year that Ecuador roses can fill some shopping gaps and am sending roses to others for their holiday cheer.  Christmas shopping done..hooray!

You can have fresh Ecuador Christmas roses yourself or send them as gifts as well…plus help Ecuador’s poor.

You can have 50 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping for only $79 or better still get 50 Ecuador Christmas roses free.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers two color choices,  farm choice assorted or red and white.  There is a $10 surcharge for the red and white rose selection.

Gary-with-roses

Here I am with 250 fresh Ecuador roses I had delivered for Merri’s birthday last summer.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

Last year I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy a  InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.

So when the roses came to me yesterday, I thought, “Why not again”?

There and then I decided to make a special offer. Here it is.

We will continue to donate $20 for each rose order to help the poor in Ecuador for every 50 roses that are shipped because of this note.

The minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation so you can choose your color option which is either red and white, or farm’s choice.

There are three ways to obtain 50 fresh cut roses.

One. We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.  If you already subscribe you can take this choice and add two years to your subscription.

If you subscribe for two years, I’ll reduce the price from $238 to $159 and also send you 50 fresh cut, premium roses FREE.

Fedex will deliver the Ecuador roses directly to you from Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full $159 refund.

To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.   You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.

Subscribe to two years of Ecuador Living.  Save $79 plus receive 50 roses free.

If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses. Simply buy them for $79 for 50 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex. ($10 surcharge for red & white roses).

This is not a deal that helps my pocketbook.  We are paying $60 ($70 for red  white roses) to deliver these roses to you. We donate $20 to the charity. We pay my credit card discount. At the $79 price ($89 for red & white), I lose two or three dollars for each 50 roses shipped.  That’s okay…the cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make…Christmas gifts for poor children in Ecuador.

You can order the 50 fresh cut roses for $79 ($20 is donated to help Ecuador’s poor) here.

You can order 50 red and white fresh cut roses for $89 ($20 is donated to help Ecuador’s poor) here.

This is a batch of 100 fresh Ecuador roses that Merri and I enjoyed earlier this year.

Dozens-of-roses

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists. These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

Here are fresh Ecuador roses at our hotel in Cotacachi.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Dining-room-roses

Here is a red and bi color combination of fresh Ecuador roses we had delivered to us in North Carolina.

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm
-workers fund -for financial help with school fees to buy a car, etc
-complete health and safety equipment provided free -helmets , gloves, masks, etc
-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return
-overtime paid over and above the legal requirements
-Christmas parties, summer holiday excursions, sports tournaments
-a safe and secure work environment with job satisfaction and potential for personal development

There you have it…three great reasons to experience the warmth of the people and beauty of Ecuador this Christmas…the freshest…best and best smelling roses…and you help the environment and the poor by having them delivered into your and your loved one’s homes.

All Ecuador Christmas rose orders will be scheduled for delivery on December 22.  Fedex may be late on these days so the roses may arrive Dec 23 or Dec. 24 2010.

When you order, the rose farm will email you a Fedex tracking number to make sure you’ll know exactly when your roses will be arriving.

This offer ends by 10am EST December 15, 2009.  All orders received after 10am EST December 15 will be scheduled to be delivered after Christmas scheduled for Dec 29  before New Year’s Day.

I regret that, due to customs regulations, our rose supplier cannot deliver roses in Canada and cards with individual personalized notes cannot be included.

A letter on “how to care for your roses” will come with your roses.

Dried-roses

We dry our fresh Ecuador roses as they age and continue to use them. Here are 100 dried Ecuador roses on our stairway in North Carolina.

breakfast-roses

Now you can take time to smell the roses even at breakfast…at affordable prices as well.

Ecuador Holiday Roses


Ecuador Holiday Roses

Ecuador roses are available from our site just in time for the holidays.

You can enjoy special beauty in your home for Thanksgiving and Christmas with Ecuador roses.

We had a concern for you when it came to fresh Ecuador roses for the holidays.

Last year we were overwhelmed with Ecuador rose orders for the holidays so we know there is a great demand during this season.   Yet many flower plantations have not been able to survive the recession.   Our flower supplier Roberto Ribadeneira has had the farms he worked with go bankrupt twice this last year. He has not been able to provide Ecuador roses for nearly a month. We were worried that this would create rose shortfall during the holidays.

I am happy to report that Roberto will have plenty of the best, most colorful Ecuador roses for you… and that the beauty you gain in your home will help may Ecuadorians enjoy the upcoming season of giving as well.

ecuador-roses

Roberto just sent me this note.

Gary, I can now provide as many fresh Ecuador roses as your readers desire using Fedex to deliver them just three days after they have been cut.   I have developed a partnership with one of the larger rose farm and I will be shipping the flowers directly from there. So we will have our Fedex machine in the farm’s cold room and pack the flowers right there.

It’s actually two farms in one. Farm #1 is located just outside Cayambe, north of Quito, it’s about 20 hectares (48 acres) of land with 10 hectares (24 acres) in production. As you can see, this is a big operation.

ecuador-roses

The second farm #2 is two miles from farm #1  and are both owned by a friend of mine. The second farm has 8 hectares (about 20 acres) in production.

The combined production its over 30,000 roses per day.

ecuador-roses

Both farms employ some 320 people. They have been in the market since 1986 being one of the first Ecuador rose farms
to export fresh cut roses. Each day the staff cuts the roses.

ecuador-roses

They are then graded and packed in this room.

ecuador-roses

They are packed in batches of 25 roses like these below. These wrapped batches are placed in a preservative solution and stored overnight in a cold room.

ecuador-roses

The solution and chill sets the rose petals, reduces bacteria that would caused early aging and puts the fresh rose into a state of suspended animation that keeps until the roses are unpacked and placed in luke warm water… which will cause them to open like this.

ecuador-roses

The next morning, a refrigerated truck drives into the cold store… picks up the roses and delivers them to Quito Airport where they are flown to Miami and placed in a Fedex cold store.  They are then flown that night to a Fedex distribution center and placed on a Fedex truck for final delivery…usually within three days of being cut.

This partnership means I have complete control of the quality of the flowers and much more availability.  I do not have not to worry about mistakes at packing or problems with the roses.  The system works well  since Fedex delivers to any US zip code.

I’ll be on the spot to provide oversight over the quality.

ecuador-roses

It doesn’t get any better for quality and service since I get to see the flowers myself.  Plus I will be going to the airport before we ship the flowers to make sure that everything is great.

Another difference is that we will be focusing more on final customers so we created a website to handle just them. We separated flower shops and event planners  so we can specifically serve households rather than flowers shops. I want normal people to get our flowers directly and not through intermediaries.  I’ll work with customers who want to develop business ideas such as the flower parties. The future of the business is what we are doing.  Roberto.

Your holiday orders for fresh Ecuador roses help out the people of Ecuador and environment as well.

These Ecuador rose farms are Veriflora certified and employee benefits include:

Transportation to and from their houses to the farm.
Breakfast
Lunch
Overtime pay
Free doctor consultations twice a week
Free medical supplies
Free uniforms
Free health insurance

Fresh Ecuador roses bring beauty into your home, help the people of Ecuador and make great Christmas presents as well.

Ecuador Banking Notes


Ecuador banking notes from Ecuador subscribers are below.

Ecuador-multi-currency-atm

This is the Ecuador bank and ATM we use in Cotacachi.

Before we look at these Ecuador banking  notes, you should be aware that non residents cannot open checking accounts at an Ecuador bank.  They can open a savings account.

Visa credit cards work at ATMs operated by Bank of Guayaquil, Pichincha, Produbanco and Banco Pacífico. Each ATM shows the logos of which cards can be used on that machine. We use our regular ATM cash card issued by our Florida bank at this Bank of Pichincha branch (shown above) on Cotacachi’s second smaller plaza.

Ecuador-multi-currency-plaza

The plaza is pristine because it is maintained by the bank.

Ecuador-multi-currency-atm-sign

The bank is next to the police station and the second smaller Cathedral.

Ecuador-multi-currency-atm-cathedral

Here are some Ecuador banking notes sent by subscribers.

You can add recent experience to your banking info that you can write a check on your US account and send it to an Ecuadorian bank for deposit. Normal mail takes about 5 days to Quito. BUT, you can’t make it payable to the bank with instructions to credit your account. Nope. You have to make it payable to yourself and then, get this, endorse the check. You cannot do, as you would in the US, add “Deposit Only to Acct 12345” — So, you are sending an endorsed check through the mail. This means it is just like cash. This is completely different from anything I have ever seen in the banking world.  Then it takes about a month for them to clear the check. Your alternative is to pay about $40 to wire the funds, and the Ecuadorian bank will charge to receive them. Or, you can get a cashier’s check and FedEx.

There are three Cotacachi ATMs. Two are on the main street 10th of August. Here is one of them…the newest of the three.

cotacachi-road-work

We are allowed to take $500 a day from the Pichincha ATM and $300 a day from the others.

Ecuador banking like in every country, has its peculiar glitches including with ATMs. Here is another sent by a reader.

Dear Gary,  I truly enjoy your posts! We have been lucky enough to find Cuenca to be our perfect Ecuadorian home but I did want to pass on a heads up based on your information today about banks in Ecuador…

When using ATM’s and cash cards in Ecuador, make sure you get your cash from a machine that is in, or at the front door of an open bank. As you receive your cash, check it for smooth feeling bills.

Last November we had the disappointing experience of getting 5 counterfeit $20 bills in our ATM withdrawal of $200. We were using an ATM at the “Parque Calderon” in the center of Cuenca, one of the most visited ATM by tourists in the city. Not imagining that there was any risk we pulled our $200 cash out and proceeded to Spanish class. It was there we were told five bills were fakes (all Ecuadorians who work with money are extremely aware of counterfeit bills as they have to cover the loses from their own pay) We were flabbergasted, especially when the woman at the school told us this had happened three times in the last month.

We called the card provider ( a Credit Union in Colorado) and they told us that as it was not in the US, there nothing they could do.

We went to the bank that owned and stocked the machine eight days in a row (each day we were told the person to see would be in the next day) trying to talk to someone who could/would do anything. It was not until we started using the word “Falsos” rather loudly in front of the crowd in the waiting line (usually about 50 people in Ecuador) that we were finally sent to a manager. The manager set us up with another manager who did not show up for our meeting either, and then another who blamed it all on the main office in Guayaquil. Finally we just marched in and went straight to the top, the bank director who kindly spent an hour showing us that the problem could not have ever happened and that the fakes must have been put in when the bills were packaged in Kansas City by the US Federal Reserve.

Knowing that a $100 loss would be devastating to a typical Ecuadorian family where teachers and policemen make $150 a month, we decided to bring charges against the bank, if only to catch their attention.

Needless to say the case is making its way agonizingly slowly through the Ecuadorian Justice system and we don’t ever expect to see our money back, but we can warn others.

-Avoid cash machines not attached to banks.

-Pull your cash out in a very visible place, preferably with the bank guard watching.

-Rub the bills between your thumb and fingers to feel for a different texture (fake bills are smooth like copy paper).

-If you think you feel any difference, immediately take it to the guard or teller and demand new bills.

Ecuador is an amazing place but even and especially the locals trust the banks and bankers about as far as they can throw them. As you say once bitten twice shy.

Here is Cotacachi’s third ATM.

Jyske ATM Banking in Ecuador

One nifty way to combine global investment management bank and your cash needs in Ecuador is through Copenhagan with Jyske Bank’s VISA debit cards.

This card makes it easy to access cash from your Danish bank account.

Why a Danish bank?  As mentioned earlier I do not trust Ecuador banks. On the other hand Danish banks are among the safest in the world.

First let’s examine safety.  How safe?

In recent years Denmark has been rated by Standard & Poor’s as one of the safest country in the world in which to bank.

Jyske Bank is well established with a history of over 100 years. Jyske is Denmark ’s second largest bank, with 450,000 clients in Denmark and over 30,000 abroad.

Jyske Bank has over 23 billion euros in assets and also happens to be one of the leading currency traders in the world. Many other large banks use Jyske to handle their off hour currency positions. This means that Jyske is huge when it comes to multi currency activity. In fact their turnover reaches $50 billion dollars a day.

Bank Safety Point #1: A recent Yahoo Canada article shows a survey by the World Economic Forum listed five safest countries in which to bank.

Canada
Sweden
Luxembourg
Australia
Denmark

So Denmark is a safe place to bank. Now let’s look at Jyske Bank’s safety rating.

Bank Safety Point #2: On October 10 2008, Moody’s affirmed Jyske Bank’s long-term Aa2 rating. This decision came despite the deteriorated economic prospects in Denmark, particularly in respect of the property market.

Bank Safety Point #3: Also on Friday 10 October 2008, the Danish Parliament passed a bill that secured all deposits and unsecured claims against losses in Danish financial institutions. The rating of the Kingdom of Denmark is Aaa/AAA with Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s respectively.

The people at Jyske are common sense bankers. They had minimal sub prime exposure when that scandal broke. Jyske had zero Madoff exposure.

That’s safe!

How about service?  First of all,  Jyske can manage your wealth. For anyone with $50,000 or more to invest Jyske can buy, sell and hold investments from all over the world, stocks, liquid assets, bonds and commodities. They provide full managed or advisory only services.  They even lend in multiple currencies to leverage investments for investors with $100,000 or more.   Almost no bank in North or Latin America can do this.

Once you have Jyske caring for your wealth, they can then provide a steady stream of cash when you need it…via a global debit card.

Jyske Ecuador & Global Service.

Even US clients who have managed accounts at Jyske Global Asset Management  (JGAM) can have a VISA debit card.

JGAM opens a specific on demand account with Jyske Bank so funds can be made available via the card.

These cards can provide access to cash anywhere in the world…including Ecuador.

Jyske offers three different cards to match different needs.   Each type of card provides considerable flexibility.

US citizens and residents can get more information from Thomas Fischer at Jyske Global Asset Management. Email: fischer@jgam.com

None US should contact Jyske Bank Rene Mathys  at mathys@jbpb.dk

This is good advice for when you are banking in Ecuador that we are happy to share.

Ecuador Roses With Vase


Here is a new way to receive Ecuador roses direct into your home and  help the poor.

You can also see a great way to earn extra income with Ecuador roses below… even if you never visit Ecuador.

ecuador-roses

I took this photo of a new Ecuador rose package that is now available through our Land of the Sun Foundation.

We have been helping readers get Ecuador roses delivered by FedEx in large containers of 50 and 100 long stem roses. Here is 100 Ecuador roses that were delivered by FedEx to our North Carolina home.

Dozens-of-roses

50 or 100 long stem, Ecuador roses are fantastic to see.

They however take a lot of work arranging.

You need many vases or a very large vase to hold 50 or 100 roses!

Now FedEx can deliver a smaller package of 20 Ecuador roses… already arranged… including the vase.

Fedex can deliver these Ecuador roses to your home or to anyone you wish.

Here is the Ecuador roses delivered to our North Carolina farm.

ecuador-roses

The Ecuador roses and vase…

are tightly packed in here.

This assures that the Ecuador roses and vase arrive in good condition.

The Ecuador roses are beautiful.  This arrangement arrived Thursday afternoon before our July North Carolina seminar.  These pictures were taken Tuesday morning, five days after they arrived.

You can see the vase…

the size of my hand shows how large these Ecuador flower heads are.

No puny, tightly bound roses that never open here!  Plus…

ecuador-roses

these Ecuador roses will last.   These Ecuador roses lasted nine days.

I did not treat them well.

They arrived Thursday.    Friday I hauled them in our van to a seminar we were conducting.  Because they were so fresh they drank a lot of water.   On Saturday and Sunday, when I arrived at the seminar hall,  the vase was totally dry.

Yet my Ecuador roses are still lively and fresh.  They normally stay full for a week to nine days.

ecuador-roses

These Ecuador roses are very  inexpensive… delivered by hand… to your home by FedEx. 20 Ecuador roses, the arrangement… all greens and the vase for only $59 including delivery.

Plus $11 of this goes to our foundation Land of the Sun. Our current project is improving  a school in the Ecuador village of  Topo de Grande.

Earn Extra Income with Ecuador Flowers

Robert Ribadineira, our flower supplier,  has now created a Fresh Flower Party Plan for flowers that can help you earn income as you help the poor.

Party plans have been  a highly successful way to introduce new ideas by displaying and demonstrating a product to those gathered at a party.

Roberto’s Premium Flower Party not only develops income potential and helps the poor but also helps resolve a huge problem that the economic downturn has created in the US.

The problem is that in the last two years nearly 30% of America’s florists have gone out of business.
It is harder and harder to get fresh premium quality flowers.  The new paradigm is that low quality, short lived cut flowers now rule the market.

Roberto’s  Premium Flower Party creates a new, fun and fulfilling way for Americans to have top quality fresh flowers in their homes.

The party plan originated with the  Tupperware company in the early 1950s. Tupperware’s success was widely copied and the idea hosting a social event in homes to demonstrate a product has become a popular and proven business model that combines fun and personal customer service.

Party plans have been used to sell items such as kitchen products, home decor, jewelry, skincare and cosmetics.

Yet fresh premium quality flowers have never been marketed via a party plan…until now.   The demise of so many florists and new three day Fedex delivery capabilities have made the Premium Flower Party a logical entry in the new economic paradigm.   See more on the party plan here.

Roberto has now helped conduct two fresh flower parties and will conduct a fresh flower party at our upcoming Ecuador Export tour to teach delegates how to sell fresh Ecuador flowers they import.  See details of this course here Oct. 21-24, 2009  Ecuador Import Export Tour

The greatest asset of all is the ability to labor at what you love wherever you live. This brings everlasting wealth.

This is why we are providing a special three for one offer with our  course Tangled Web… How to Have an Internet Business

This course can help you create your own internet business.

Our emailed course “Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Web Based Business” is a continuing educational program.  You receive the first 28 lessons when you enroll and a new lesson every week or two.

This course teaches how to create a web based business and is developed from the ongoing experiences that we have from our successful and profitable internet business.

This course is well worth the enrollment fee of $299… but currently you also receive two additional courses FREE.

The other two courses are #1: International Business Made EZ, and #2: Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.

These two courses have sold for $398 and thousands have paid this price. We add them to your course, at no added cost, as I believe they will help you develop a better business in these crucial times..

Even Better Get All three Courses Free

To make this offer even more compelling,  I am giving everyone who enrolls in our North Carolina or Ecuador International Business & Investing seminar in October or November all three courses, “Tangled Web… How to Have an Internet Business Course,”  “Self Fulfilled- How to be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ” free.
