The Wall Street Journal article “A fitness empire quietly rises on youtube” (2) shows how a couple combined doing what they love in a way that improves their health (along with millions of others).
The article says: “Fitness Blender, an online-workout company run by personal trainers Kelli and Daniel Segars, is the most-watched fitness channel on YouTube and just passed 4 million subscribers. That’s more than the number of members at 24 Hour Fitness, one of the nation’s biggest health-club chains.”
This is an era of big and slick but this couple has created this success from their garage north of Seattle. There is no flash, just this couple sharing how to stay fit filmed against a plain-white background. The couple even occasionally stumble a bit, but it’s this fact that the Segars look normal, like friends who can help you be healthy, that has created this success.

The first 37 seconds of the home page video shares six of the seven basic qualities that can make us healthy.
- Gimmick Free
- Fitness Resource
We’ll get to the seventh quality in a moment. First, let me emphasize that this business helps the couple be wealthy as well.
The WSJ article says: “Fitness Blender makes most of its revenue from video ads, plus digital eating plans and workout plans that sell for $6 to $25. Despite the bare-bones approach, or perhaps because of it, the seven-year-old Fitness Blender has grown into what the Segarses say is a multimillion-dollar business with revenue growing more than 20% a year.”
There you have it, a counter point to the big, flashy, gimmicky, services offered by big businesses. A positive and gimmick free service instead of the big business model based on brain hacking, gamification strategies that addict us to poor quality and terrible service obscured in fine print and wrapped up in red tape.
Honest, simple and helpful. These qualities are so basic refreshing in these cynical dishonest times. Because honest and simple are easy, all of us, no matter where we are in life, can create a successful micro business.
“Fitness Blender is the leader in free workouts. The site’s fans have embraced its simple approach to health: Do a blend of exercise types and eat whole, healthy foods. “It’s not about being bikini-ready,” Ms. Segars says. “It’s about not dying of a heart attack.””
The more complex the world becomes, the more valuable simplicity will be. The more dominant big businesses are, the greater opportunity small businesses will have. The more deceit and dishonesty prevails, the value of sincerity and integrity grows.
The seventh quality is to let a short amount of work create a long amount of earning. This couple has created 500 free videos. Now that the work is done, those videos can generate new customers and income opportunities for years, even decades.
See the importance of working short and earning long below!
One Week’s Effort – Ten Year’s PayOver 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days. We wrote a report about new financial secrets.
The report sold well and generated an immediate and excellent income. Now it’s long out of date. I just have this one copy left, stored in my archives.
However those ten days of effort, three decades ago, started a chain of events that creates residual income for Merri and me to this very day. Even better the ten days efforts on that report should continue to create income for us for many years more.
Those ten days of effort also taught me some lessons so valuable that they can help you use brief efforts to creates extra income now and will continue to pay you for years. These lessons even show how to generate cash flow that lasts so long, your heirs will enjoy the income too.
Learn how to do a little work for a lot of income, again and again. See shares nine secrets below on how to generate long tail income (money that comes in again and again) from a small, self sufficient business at home.
Learn how to easily gain the most important things in life; freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction… with very small amounts of money and time.
Here are five of nine secrets, for creating long tail wealth:
Secret #1: The business must enjoy the multiple effect. A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis. Each venture in the business needs to make a huge return to start and then continue generating earnings year in and year out.
Secret #2: The business needs to be more than its owner. It 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: The money making system must have a purpose beyond money and be enjoyable and fun! Sad but true, most of us 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 and felt they were doing something that was good! Money was of secondary importance to their effort. And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more!
Secret #4: The money making system must be flexible. No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression. The business must have resilience-so if times turn tough, they can evolve and turn change into even more income.
Secret #5: The business must be able to start small, but grow large. I learned that business ideas work best with small starts to begin 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 can grow larger with higher income.
The way to make money in this way is by publishing to sell! Almost anyone can make more than respectable income when they publish to sell. Publishing to sell fits all five secrets above, even if you never write a thing.
Publishing is not writing! Publishing is the business that makes money from writing. You may have read or heard about the great wealth good writers can make. Guess what? Writers make that money from a royalty paid to them by a publisher. The royalty is normally 15% of the book’s wholesale sales, after returns. Guess who makes the other 85%? Guess whose decisions make or break the fortunes of the writer? The publisher!
Publishing to sell is a business where you get the 85% from publishing, PLUS MORE… and have extra earnings that just keep keep rolling in, year after year.
Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering books. “Publishing to Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important information, but also leads to the sale of or sells some other publication, service or product.
For example, Merri and I used publishing to sell in Ecuador. We published a report about living in Ecuador. This was an informative report that helped thousands of readers move there. The report also outlined the benefits of our Ecuador real estate tours and Super Thinking Spanish courses. That particular effort starting in 1995 created a million dollar business that still generates earnings to this day.
Here are other examples. One publisher who used the course, Joe Culbertson, D.C. is a chiropractor. Eating junk food creates numerous problems including difficulties in the spine so Dr. Joe published a series of articles about the spine. Then he self published a three part book Secrets of the Spine: The True Mind/Body Connection.
See how Dr. Joe put his website together below (1).
Another smart self publisher, Jamie Alexander, who used our self publishing course, has a cooking school.
Jamie started her professional baking career at age 20 when she apprenticed under the best-selling cookbook author, Nathalie Dupree. When she was living in Paris, she studied at LaVarenne, the Cordon Bleu Cooking School and with the pastry chef of Maxim’s. Her health problems created by high blood sugar levels caused her to have a passion about baking in a healthy way. She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.
You have my word for it, these cakes are delicious and there is not an ounce of sugar or white flour! What a treat!
Jamie Alexander’s recipes are for sale at Amazon.com and include “Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownies”, “Reid’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Quinoa Brownies”, “Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa Cake” and “New Orleans Espresso-Infused Chocolate Quinoa Cake”. See all five Jamie Alexander quinoa stevia recipes below (2).
You can write what you publish to sell or publish what others write to sell. Some writers, like myself write and also publish. That’s because 85% of the income from printed publications normally goes to the publisher.
You can earn as a writer. You can earn as a publisher. You can publish, or write, or both! You can also generate long term income from what your publication sells.
Publishing to sell can create outrageously high long term income for little work and you can do it from your home, in an RV or even while cruising or living on a boat or traveling. It is possible to generate large amounts of extra income month after month that continues year after year.
Publishing to Sell has become better, much… much better. The stories of our early success above began when our publishing to sell business was in print. When the internet became popular and we created a website (in the 1990s), the cost of publishing risk went into a steep dive due to a new advertising medium called Pay Per Click (PPC). Prior to PPC the biggest part of every publishing venture was paper, printing and post. If a publication was mailed, and not read, the paper, the printing and the postage still had to be paid for. The cost of sending publications which were never opened, created a huge risk.
PPC means that a publisher today only pays from the delivery of a publication when it is opened. This dramatically reduces upfront cost and risk.
Freedom is even more of an important benefit.
In the early 190s, I had what I thought was a good business but to be honest I could never get ahead. I always seemed to be in debt. The harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in. Then I discovered publishing to sell. Since then our publishing to sell business has brought in millions. We gained all the physical possessions we desire (more in fact than we wanted), more houses than we could use (we rent them), two tropical beachfront homes and a Tuscan inspired villa in the mountains overlooking a roaring creek, a 250 acre farm and a 900 acre plantation in Ecuador, plus more than enough money in the bank.
Our income exceeds our expense.
We do not have one penny of debt and we have as much leisure as we choose. We are free to work when we want and can decide when we want to slow down and relax. We live where we like and most important, we arise from bed without an alarm, work without undue stress and have fun every day! My wife, Merri, and I are our own bosses and do what we love and have learned that through publishing to sell, we can accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community. In short, we can help make ourselves and the world a better place.
What do you love? Rare cars? You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love. 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 problems, with crimes, war, poverty? Would you like to help wipe them out? Each of these offers opportunity in publishing. Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world? 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 in the process and live wherever you please! Whatever your passion learn how you can make a fortune by publishing information that sells-whether books, tapes or online.
Publishing to Sell can also be international so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere. This is especially valuable if you love to travel. For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live so published information on Panama that sold real estate and seminars. Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country in others and vice versa. For example, there is currently a huge growth in domestic tourism and self publishers are in a position to do something about it…by selling U.S. knowledge everywhere!
Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years, but now in our 70s, we live in the US where we are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren. In each phase of our lives, the publish to sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired.
Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel. Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible! You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business. Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event.
Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax. As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country. Other benefits come in the form of legal protection. Publishers are protected by 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. The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.
We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business. This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique. We started our publishing 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 readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person. When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website. You’ll can learn how to do this in the course.
May I introduce you to our course, SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell.
The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing to sell business by yourself. The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

Secret #6: How to gain 1,000% returns. See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing. Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.

See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity. I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29. I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.
Secret #8: When to print, how to print and when to go online only. How to print and fulfill. Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.

Merri and I have proven this! The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do. Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.
The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business. For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net. We’ll unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation. This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.
However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.
I have created this course in an easy to understand style. Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail. We share all, how we have done it ourselves. The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies. You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes (suddenly all his flying became tax deductible!) You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there. Another made millions with one simple legal idea. I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help. This course is not theoretical. It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.
The course is designed so you can get your own publishing to sell business going, full or part time right away. I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.
I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public. Here are raves from delegates who have used our course. For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:
“Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”
An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”
A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While 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).”
Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted one course and recorded it placed it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online.

What Others Say about the “Self Fulfilled” course.
Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.
Here are few stories of how those who attended our Writer’s Camps have used what they learned.
Barry Weinhold sent this note: We were successful authors before attending the Writer’s Camp, with our first book published in 1989 selling over 200,000 print copies. With the tips from your course last fall, we have published six new ebooks in Kindle format that are now available at Amazon.com.
Thanks for helping us get the word out about Barry’s 2-part Breaking Family Patterns series. Janae has also released her 3-part Con Job series.
We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”
Our monthly royalty checks are now coming in and we are very pleased with the response to our new books (656 books sold and 1295 free downloads in seven months). We have six more new ebooks in the pipeline for publication. Our goal is to publish twelve new ebooks by our one-year course anniversary. We couldn’t have published this quickly without the great support we received from your Writer’s Camp. We highly recommend it to anybody seeking the fast track to becoming independent self-publisher.
Self Publishers can also write in more than one niches.
Nickolette Goff writes non fiction in two niches. After attending the Writer’s Camp, Nicki used what she had learned to help promote her first book… a Quinoa recipe cookbook with 13 recipes. She had 10,000 downloads of the book in five days and obtained dozens of good reviews!
You can get 13 more great quinoa recipes in Nicki Goff’s book at the links below.
She wrote: Hi, Gary, Book sales are actually going well, and I’m having a lot of fun with this. I’m so grateful to you and Merri for pushing me to get some action going!
The free promos really get things going, and seem to reignite sales.
Two more in the works – both on gardening topics. Best wishes for you and Merri. Love, Nicki
What a joy seeing how helping and connecting people helps self publishers create their own special success. How beautiful to see friends turn their passions into profit!
Nicki learned at the camp that getting these downloads is step three in a seven step process. We (and others) have been helping Nicki and our delegates walk through these steps so they can earn income through writing and publishing again and again.
Nicki is now well on her way to wonderful self publishing success. She just completed her fourth book in a totally different genre gardening. This book is “Under Cover Gardening”.
She used the three day free Kindle marketing program again. Read about Nicki’s new book here.
Nicki wrote: Gary: My book was downloaded exactly 6000 times during the 3 days, and is selling around 5 per day right now. I’m very pleased with the results – three 5* reviews so far. Nicki
Chances are that most books you write will not be a best seller. However Nicki’s books show the process that you use to create a steady income as you build inventory. She is publishing numerous books in each of the genres she loves. This creates extra income and added inventory if one of your books becomes a big success.
Let’s look at Nicki’s example again to see these benefits. Imagine this. Nicki writes a half dozen books, three on organic gardening and three on quinoa.
Then imagine that Oprah is interested in quinoa, reads Nicki’s book and has her on the show. Nicki’s quinoa book sales will go bananas. So too will all her other quinoa books. Add further to this example and say that the national psyche just happens to be focused on better nutrition when this all happens. If so, Nicki’s organic gardening book sales will skyrocket as well.
To sum this up… at the camp you’ll learn the importance of writing a lot for your niche. The increased number of publications will allow you to keep your price low, but generate income that keeps you writing as you build inventory so any bigger success can grow in exponential bonds.
You can also self publish at any age. A number of our friends who have used our writers course to self publish are in their 70s and 80s. Yet college students have self published as well.
The father of the family of four wrote: Hi Gary and Merri: Just thought y’all would like to know that today Doss published his first book. It is called College Confidential and it is currently listed at number 42 on amazon. com. He would not have done it but for our experience this summer at your Writer’s Camp.
So, here is thanking you both very much.
This book is written by a student, for students, College Confidential: An Insider’s Guide to Success written by Doss Winter is filled with practical tips and insider information addressing everything from Academics to getting your Zzzzs.
Here are a few more examples of how others used the information from our workshop?
A long time friend, who had just retired from a 30 year career in the oil industry joined our program. His passion was to learn more about health and looking at the deep, more spiritual aspects of life since he had ended a financially successful career. He has gone on to publishing the leading healthy living magazine where he lives.
Not only was he able to publish 20,000 copies of a 48-64 page magazine on healthy living every month, he was able to meet and work with leading health and spiritual leaders like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer and even the Dali Llama. What a thrill.
Michelle Toole, an at home mother, made a fateful decision… to attend our self publishing course.
Michelle was disabled when she took the “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” camp.
She took what she learned from our publishing courses and created her own successful global micro website.

Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month! The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities. We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.
“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running. I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year. The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.
“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”
Another successful self publisher who attended our workshop wrote :
“MY HEAD IS STILL SPINNING from all of the valuable input I received. Out in the boonies, 2 + hours from the airport in Charlotte, North Carolina it was not your typical setting for a business seminar.
“It was presented by a fascinating guy with an interesting career history. Gary Scott and his wife, Merri, split their time between their idyllic farm in North Carolina and their property in the mountains of Ecuador . I first heard about Gary through my interest in Ecuador .
“By his own admission, Gary is often ‘a bit ahead of the curve’ which is part of what makes his material interesting. You sense the authenticity of what he is saying but it has not caught on in the mainstream media or pop-culture.
“The input is that is already affecting my life was not just from the instructor, but from other participants. The small group, less than twenty, seemed to be intimately bonded as soon as the seminar started. People from all walks of life and all parts of the country gained insights from the information that was geared to create a ‘life of your choosing more so than just a successful business. A very simple but powerful concept. Why do we want the money in the first place?
“The lifestyle aspect of the course was taught by example. We, as a group, were temporarily inserted directly into the lifestyle led by Gary and Merri. No better way to learn than by doing.
“The course content suited my needs very nicely. It addressed issues pertinent to FilmTrips and my marketing company, MJ Media. New life has been injected into several FilmTrips projects that had been languishing on a back burner for quite some time. Gary talks about being open to ‘connect the dots’ and take advantage of distortions or discrepancies between economies and countries. I am in a very good position to do that. Telephone and Internet technology has certainly arrived to help make it happen. I will keep you posted!”
Others who used this course wrote:
My daughter and I had a fantastic time at the Writer’s Camp this past weekend. We both felt we gained a tremendous amount of knowledge on “how to make money with our writing skills”! Thank you.
Yours and Merri’s expertise on transmitting knowledge to others is phenomenal. The warm, personal feel of being with you both along with the great people in the class was great!
Thank you again for all the added information gained in all areas of life and what I consider gourmet meals served to us all.
Another wrote: Have just returned from the writing seminar conducted at your farm in Ashe County, North Carolina, I thought I’d give you my take on what I experienced. To suggest that the location, hosts, seminar content, and accommodations were adequate would be an understatement.
The seminar itself opened a whole new world that I hope to explore in the coming months. I drove away from your farm with a well inflated right rear tire and a wealth of information that could catapult me into a whole new profession should I opt to go that route. I still have a number of professional business ideas that I intend to pursue, however, the concepts and ideas conveyed in your seminar will serve to enhance whatever I undertake going forward.
But if there was one underlying common denominator that I recognized, it was the fact that you are both so well qualified to present in this field of communication. Probably my most prolific observation was how well read and knowledgeable you are. The breadth and depth of knowledge on so many diverse yet associated subjects kept my unswerving attention. It also opened my mind to a variety of fields that, heretofore, I would not have considered relevant to my interests. And as a presenter, Gary is prolific. I drove away knowing that not only did the seminar give me my money’s worth but I was introduced to some very valuable contacts.
The bottom line is your seminar was both eye opening and entertaining. I came, I saw, I learned, and I even ate healthy. Thanks for everything. John
The son of a father/son team sent this note:
Hi Merri! I just attended your writer’s camp with my dad this past weekend. I didn’t get to express how much I appreciated all that you and Gary did for us this weekend because we were in a hurry to get to the airport. Letting us stay in your cottage and having us for your writers camp was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life! Gary and Merri’s stories of adventure, success, your lessons, and advice are truly priceless!!
This camp has inspired me. Writing has always come naturally for me but I never was able to view it as a business opportunity.
This camp has shown me not only that writing can be profitable, but HOW to make it profitable! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with me. In my lifetime, I could only hope to see the success that you and Gary have achieved.
I not have only signed up for your newsletter, but I can’t stop spreading the word to my friends about my experience. Thanks again for your amazing hospitality, Mitchell
If you accept our invitation, the course hammers, even bombards you with the absolute, vital importance of starting small. We live in the era of epublishing that makes small “big”. This plays perfectly into the hands of small businesses and copywriters as we just happened to have a perfect advantage right now in the marketplace.
Now let’s get to the important stuff. Our life is less stressed (not stress free – every business has stress) but Self Publishing to sell can be a low stress business… no commuting… choose your own hours… immersed in your passions with like minded souls. Work at home. How refreshing!
Here I am at our Florida home… at work?
Here I am at work in the Blue Ridge. Better than a cubicle for sure!
You can have fun every day doing what you love as you accomplish goals that are important… to you… and are a service to your community.
What do you love? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing your passion and do something good for the world at the same time?
Your passion and self publishing create…magic, wealth, happiness.
Three other things you gain.
#1: Respect. If you are not a recluse like Merri and me, you’ll find yourself the center of attention at social events and with your friends and in business because publishing is highly respected.
#2: Power. Everyone wants publishers to distribute good information about them. And everyone fears publishers a bit. The pen IS mightier than the sword!
#3: Protection. Writers are protected by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You do not need a license to publish. There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing. Publishers enjoy almost more freedom than any other occupation because of the Freedom of the Press. This is so powerful because the first amendment is actually a part of the Bill of Rights. Just in case you missed this in school (as most students did including me) here are the exact words of this amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
You become the press and you are set free. You cannot get more protection than that.
Shall we get back to the money and lifestyle? What can self publishing do financially for you?
Merri and I love nature so our home in Florida is set amidst an orange grove… just far enough from busy parts of the state that we enjoy wonderful peace and quiet. This makes a perfect place to study. This is a winter shot from the front yard of our Florida home looking over our orange grove and lake… that we bought with cash from our self published writing.
The Blue Ridge is our summer home. That name is a slight misnomer for a large part of the year. Correctly named in the winter, these mountains would be called “White Ridge”. The white comes from snow which begins with S as does South which is where we head around November…to Florida or Ecuador .
While it’s freezing in the North Carolina mountains, we worry about sunburn sometimes.
Why enroll in this course? Self publishing can easily fulfill all of your material needs. More importantly it throws you together with fantastically interesting people from all walks of life. You all share a common goal… to write… to sell… to earn. This create magic for all.
You can enjoy this wonderful lifestyle. Married, single, rich, poor, in good and bad health, educated and not, travelers and those who want to just stay at home. This is why self publishing works for… those who want a gradual part time improvement in life and for those who want to make big enhancements now.
This course works for anyone who would like to write or publish or both. See how published products can include compilations, catalogues, CDS, interviews. Plus look at how to sell treks, tours, visits, products and services through self publishing.
You’ll see how one delegate who attended the workshop used her publication to sell real estate.
This course is for individuals and couples. We include those who want their own publishing system together as a family business.
This course is not theory. Merri and I share our real time experiences. We start at the beginning over 40 years ago but mainly look at how we earn hundreds of thousands and even millions a year in our exciting lifestyle…right now.
We study and listen to many other self publishers as well.
Self employed, retired, professionals and those who are employed who want to add extra income or who want to change their life entirely will benefit. Previous course delegates have included investors, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, other professionals and those who already own their own business and of course retirees.
Which would you rather have… 6% of $10 or 70% of $3?
The math to this question brings an obvious answer and creates opportunity for those who want a writer’s life.
Starting with online books allows you to lower price… increase volume and cut out a publisher, distributor and book store who normally absorb up to 88% of the income created by a book.
You can start self publishing with no printing costs, no shelf space, no inventory, no postal delivery. Most of the publishing expenses are eliminated.
The writer keeps 70%.
Amazon keeps 30%.
A typical writer earning 12% of the wholesale book sales makes about $.60 per $9.99 book sale. A Kindle writer makes $2.10 on a $3 sale.
Buyers of books fall into niches. Choosing the correct niche is a first step in the elusive process of capturing the national psyche. When you tap into this phenomenon, you can earn millions just from online sales. I know. This process has netted an extra $2,072,614.89 for my business in the past several years.
Yet the income from selling ebooks… as profitable as it can be… is only a part of the earning potential.
The first step in this process is to focus on a niche and create trust with the readers in that niche.
The eBook revolution makes this entire process easier because Amazon sales can be like prospecting tools.
Some amazing websites and businesses have been and will continue to be built using eBooks. Kindle sales act like a search engine. They are the starting point that attracts the original readers who become the nucleus of your success.
Technology especially favors small publishers today. Portable computers, the internet, wireless access, on demand printing smart phones and electronic readers all create enormous new potential for small publishers.

Merri and I have always preferred to start our micro businesses through cash flow. However in the early the days of our business I found myself raising extra capital several times. I have also helped numerous businesses raise money to get started. This report shares several experiences to give a thumbnail sketch of how to raise to get a micro business off the ground.
One of the biggest reasons readers do not get started being their own boss, gaining a second income and taking a first step towards greater freedom, is they can’t find the funds to get of the ground.
