A Fit Way to Be Rich


Here is an example of seven basic qualities that can help us have everlasting health and wealth.  Our times have seen a rise in our awareness of deceit, trickery and alternative facts.  The growing use of obvious deception in business, politics and just about every walk of life might seen to be an obstacle in living well and in good health.  However, we live in a dualistic universe so every action has an opposite and equal reaction.  We can use counterpoints to points that might hinder our progress to help us live a better lifestyle.

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.

  • Honest
  • Gimmick Free
  • Fitness Resource
  • Positive
  • Helpful
  • Community

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 Pay

Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report about new financial secrets.

gary scott

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.

spine

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

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!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers the five secrets I mentioned above and the secrets below:

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. This course that you can study online contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #7:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, I showed how one friend, who never wanted to write and yet decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  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.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #9: How to compute and use the Internet.  With an inexpensive computer, you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over-even if they are computer illiterates.  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.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Lesson #2:  How to Create Your Product.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

Lesson #3:  How to Choose Your Format.  Some ideas are timeless and can be sold in a book for years on end.  Others are better in a magazine, newsletter or other periodic publication. Some products can just be lists, simple one page photocopied ideas or names and addresses. Understand when to print, record (on audio or video) and when to transfer through the Internet. Learn how to choose the format that suits you, full or part time.

Lesson #4:  How to Publish to Sell.  Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn a few advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to write or have ads written.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of Dollars in free publicity.  Learn the tricks of the Internet to easily focus and capture a market there.

Lesson #6:  How to Fulfill.  This session is a practical guide on how to administer your business.  How to set up a computerized fulfilment system, get local families to do all your work for you and run your business (if you wish) from your home.  Learn how and why to use low and variable overheads, yet give one day turn-around delivery.  Learn when to choose delivery services, to fulfill yourself or build your own system…or when to simply fulfill via the Internet.

Lesson #7:  How to Finance.  Learn all you’ll need about the financial end, of the business, how to control physical or online inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results, get 30 day free credit and stay on top of your business.  Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.  The course and manual contain all these secrets and more.  The computer/internet workshop personalizes the knowledge so you can get started.

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.

weinhold book

We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”

weinhold book

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.

quinoa-book

You can order Nicki’s first book at Amazon.com.

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.

kindle book

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.

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.

Michelle wrote:  “I have some great news, my web site  http://healthy-holistic-living.com is now getting on average 2,000 visitors a day! Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month!  The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities.  We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.

“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running.  I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year.  The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.

“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”

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.
 
Donna/Jeanna

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!

gary-scott-image

Here I am at our Florida home… at work?

gary scott

Here I am at work in the Blue Ridge.  Better than a cubicle for sure!

You can have fun every day doing what you love as you accomplish goals that are important… to you… and are a service to your community.

What do you love? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing your passion and do something good for the world at the same time?

Your passion and self publishing create…magic, wealth, happiness.

Three other things you gain.

#1: Respect. If you are not a recluse like Merri and me, you’ll find yourself the center of attention at social events and with your friends and in business because publishing is highly respected.

#2: Power. Everyone wants publishers to distribute good information about them. And everyone fears publishers a bit. The pen IS mightier than the sword!

#3: Protection. Writers are protected by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You do not need a license to publish. There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing. Publishers enjoy almost more freedom than any other occupation because of the Freedom of the Press. This is so powerful because the first amendment is actually a part of the Bill of Rights. Just in case you missed this in school (as most students did including me) here are the exact words of this amendment:  “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

You become the press and you are set free.  You cannot get more protection than that.

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.

How to Start Anew


Here’s how to begin a new beginning.  Spring is the time when nature brings the world back to life, a time of new beginnings.  Light overtakes darkness.  It is time to plant seeds for growth… like this…

apron

If we want a new beginning, a change in direction towards a better life, a rebirth, here’s three steps to kick start the process.

These three tips can make a new beginning possible and are exemplified by a Forbes article “From line cook to CEO of a multi-million dollar opportunity” (1) . This is the story of a start up apron business run by Ellen Bennett.

Ms. Bennett started Hedley & Bennett, an apron company whose designs have been adopted by (some of the best) restaurants in the world.   Here are three steps she used to move this company from an at home business in 2012 that sold its products at a flea market, to a 14,000-square-foot factory in Los Angeles that employs over 40 people.

The article says: “Four years ago, Bennett went from a line cook to the founder and designer of Hedley & Bennett, a custom apron and culinary work wear company based in Los Angeles. Today she has her aprons in Whole Foods and in more than 4,000 restaurants worldwide including celebrity chefs-Martha Stewart, Mario Batali and Alton Brown. Because aprons aren’t just for the kitchen, she has collaborated with SpaceX, Google, Lexus, Delta, Four Seasons and Food & Wine to craft functional aprons for their needs.”

Her first secret is to keep things simple.  Hedley & Bennett uses simple designs, nothing fancy.

Second,  she maintains high quality and keeps the product personal.  The firm uses carefully chosen hardware, customized detailing, reinforced bar tacked pockets and durable fabrics.

Third, she started small and then let the business grow at a natural pace.  Ellen Bennett did not let the need for financing stop her from recreating her life.  She started in her house.  She worked as a cook to pay her bills and sold aprons on the side.  She never got investors.  Hers was a bootstrap operation starting in her living room.  Then she moved into a small 400-square-foot office.  Each year as the business grew and could afford it,  she got a bigger space.

The article quoted Bennett: “I sold at the Hollywood Farmers Market and told people about them everywhere I went.  Since 2012, we’ve grown from a tiny office to a 14,000 sq. ft. apron factory.  We outfit 4,000+ restaurants around the world, including some of my favorite chefs and heroes like Martha Stewart, Nancy Silverton, April Bloomfield, Mario Batali and Alton Brown, to name a few.”

There you have it, a pretty simple formula, start a small, simple, high quality business and let it grow organically.

Here are three last words of wisdom.  These are mantras we repeat continually at our website.  “Do what you love”.  “Go try things”. “Be resilient and embrace change”.   As Ellen Bennett puts it,  “The path in front of you is rarely a straight line.  It’s full of bumps.  Embrace the bumps in the road”.

10 Days Work – 30 Years Pay

Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report in that time about new financial secrets.

gary scott

The report sold well and generated an income.  Now its long out of date and I have just the one copy left standing 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.

Let me share an idea on brief efforts you can that create extra income now and for years to come.  I’ll even show how to generate cash flow  that lasts so long, your heirs will enjoy the income too.

See how one publishing venture that required $3,600 turned into $13,706… in 30 days and has continued to generate residual income for over 20 years.   That small push in the 1990s is still earning for Merri and me now.

Learn how to enjoy this kind of extra money  again and again from a  course that shares nine secrets on how to generate long tail income (money that comes in again and again) from small, self sufficient business at home.  This message explains this course and shares seven examples of income that required just days of work but generated income that has continued for years.

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.

First, let me tell how I searched for this elusive opportunity for twenty years… how I looked for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable income.  Then I’ll explain how I finally found it and why after years of proving its validity, I can now share it with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be so enormously profitable that I would always have the earnings I needed, income that kept coming in even if I did not work.  But this Crown Jewel of Businesses also had to be as safe so it would keep generating income in good times and/or bad AND be flexible.

These were not the only standards I set for my quest. I not only wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety but also wanted this incredible business to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not even be a little bit questionable with the tax man.  It had to be so foolproof that Congress would never change it.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible, but nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. But I didn’t find it in Asia. I went to the Middle East and roamed all over Europe. I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.  This income generating business was not only perfect but was sitting right here in my own backyard in smalltown USA.  It required very little money, could grow as fast as I wanted, offered freedom, enjoyment and allowed me to live wherever I chose!

Read below how you, too, can earn income again and again from a special system (never offered to the general public) that makes it possible for you to create huge amounts of extra income, full or part time and enjoy excellent profits-yet have fun and enjoyment.

In this quest. I was looking for an at-home business opportunity good enough to be foolproof under every sort of circumstance.  I sought a business that contained the ultimate instrument of survival which is resilience and flexibility.

I only discovered this powerful way of creating everlasting income because I changed my search.  Instead of looking just at businesses, I looked at the rich, how they made and kept wealth.  Most millionaires. it turns out, made their money in business that started small and evolved. I changed my quest and started looking at small businesses that brought independence, freedom and fulfillment and could grow rather than big, get-rich-quick business schemes.  I studied the rich to find the secrets they used.  Here are five of nine important secrets, for combining freedom with wealth, I learned:

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.

Understanding these secrets, I realized a fantastic way to make money was actually just my own business;  Publishing to Sell!   Almost anyone can make a fortune in publishing.  Publishing to Sell is the perfect business for making money as you gain complete independence and freedom.   Publishing to sell fits all five secrets above.  You can make a fortune by publishing to sell even if you never write.

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!

Online publishing had made publishing to sell even easier in a way, but the intense competition in online publishing has made it harder to profit from pure online publishing.   Publishing to Sell overcomes this new publishing obstacle.

What is publishing to sell? 

Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering books.  Self publishing is the business where the writer is also the publisher.

“Publishing to Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important information, but also leads 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.  The series of articles and the book were informative and of great value but also introduced a valuable product Joe invented called the Spinal-Tuner.

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 change how she baked.  She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.

She published recipes on how to bake extra delicious deserts-sugar free deserts, with extra healthy ingredients.  She created opportunity with the publication.  Her publishing efforts also made her an expert and enhanced her cooking school.  The main ingredients she chose to work with were quinoa, the Andean super grain, and stevia.

Jamie learned how to take out the unwanted ingredients such as white flour and white sugar and replace them with healthy ones.  She uses veggies and quinoa along with stevia and natural honey…all organic ingredients. The cakes are gluten-free as well by replacing flour with flaxseed meal nut flours.

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 here. 

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.  Below is proof from confidential results of  sales I have made though publishing.

One November, I ventured $1,900 in postage to mail 10,000 letters. $16,823 came back in the mail (before I even had to pay the printer).  My profit after deducting all costs was $12,136 on the $1,900.

Then in December, I ventured $475.  It returned $3,106 in one month.  That led me to venture another $475 the same month.  $2,688 came back.  I ventured even more, another $475 that December and earned another $2,673.  I kept that ball rolling and ventured this amount one more time that month to gain an extra $3,970!  My business never ventured more than $475 at any one time, but my earnings were $12,437.  These are not just luck either.  I tried the same publication the next March and a $5,500 venture brought back $12,774.  In April a $1,900 venture returned $4,152.

These profits all took place in the early 1990s, but still generate residual income today.

With figures like this, you have got to ask can they be true?  I guarantee they are, but obtaining such results is not without pitfalls.  In fact, there are seventeen pitfalls I have learned to avoid and it took me more than a decade of struggle to learn how to avoid these problems.

Then the Publishing to Sell business got better, much… much better.  You see the earnings we just shared were all earned 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 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 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 that publishing to sell can bring you.

Back in 1974, 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 and the harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in.  Then I discovered a secret on how to avoid the 17 pitfalls of 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 on overlooking a roaring creek, a 250 acre farm and a 900 acre plantation in Ecuador, plus more than enough money in the bank.

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 fulfilment 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 at that time.

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 becomes a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event.

As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.   Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  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.  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!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers the five secrets I mentioned above and the secrets below:

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. This course that you can study online contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #7:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.   Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, I showed how one friend, who never wanted to write and yet decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  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.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #9: How to compute and use the Internet.  With an inexpensive computer, you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over-even if they are computer illiterates.  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 wrote earlier that I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public. I invited my readers to attend my first publishing weekend course. The fee was $2,000.  In a minute, you will see how to have this course for pennies on the dollar. (as little as $79.)  Merri and I conducted this course in Orlando, Florida and were delighted that 87 delegates signed up, paid and attended.  They came from all over-young couples working for an income, publishers, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, businessmen, investors, real estate brokers, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, millionaires and housewives. People from all walks of life.

This first course was an outstanding success and the raves from delegates you will read below show how satisfied the delegates were.  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 $2,000 price.”  (In a moment,  I will explain why you can have this course others paid $2000 for only $79).

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth $2,000!”

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 were overwhelmed at how much the course helped those delegates.  We felt so good that we decided to make it available to a larger audience.

So we did a recording when we conducted this course and also placed the course in written form online.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Lesson #2:  How to Create Your Product.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

Lesson #3:  How to Choose Your Format.  Some ideas are timeless and can be sold in a book for years on end.  Others are better in a magazine, newsletter or other periodic publication. Some products can just be lists, simple one page photocopied ideas or names and addresses. Understand when to print, record (on audio or video) and when to transfer through the Internet. Learn how to choose the format that suits you, full or part time.

Lesson #4:  How to Publish to Sell.  Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each. Know where and when to advertise (such as never near Easter-Christmas is OK).

You’ll learn how to turn a few advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to write or have ads written.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of Dollars in free publicity.  Learn the tricks of the Internet to easily focus and capture a market there.

Lesson #5:  If You Print-How to Print?  Did you know that you can reduce your printing bill by half just asking for a job in the right way?  Learn all the tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.  Learn how to choose the right graphics, correct paper, envelope, style, letter fonts.  When on demand printing is best.  Every Secret is included.

Lesson #6:  How to Fulfill.  This session is a practical guide on how to administer your business.  How to set up a computerized fulfilment system, get local families to do all your work for you and run your business (if you wish) from your home.  Learn how and why to use low and variable overheads, yet give one day turn-around delivery.  Learn when to choose delivery services, to fulfill yourself or build your own system…or when to simply fulfill via the Internet.

Lesson #7:  How to Finance.  Learn all you’ll need about the financial end, of the business, how to control physical or online inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results, get 30 day free credit and stay on top of your business.  Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.  The course and manual contain all these secrets and more.  The computer/internet workshop personalizes the knowledge so you can get started.

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.

weinhold book

We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”

weinhold book

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.

quinoa-book

You can order Nicki’s first book at Amazon.com.

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.

kindle book

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.

Bill Winter

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.

Michelle wrote:  “I have some great news, my web site  http://healthy-holistic-living.com is now getting on average 2,000 visitors a day! Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month!  The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities.  We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.

“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running.  I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year.  The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.

“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”

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!”

Delegates from our last camp 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.
 
Donna/Jeanna

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.

Ten Days Work – 30 Years Pay


Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report in that time.  The effort immediately generated an excellent bonus of cash.  Even better those ten days of effort, three decades ago, continues to create residual income to this very day and should do so for many years to come.

Learn how to get extra income now and create life long nest eggs with brief periods of work.

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 by publishing to sell.

What is publishing to sell? 

Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering books.  Self publishing is the business where the writer is also the publisher.

“Publishing to Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important information, but also leads 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 utilized 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.  The series of articles and the books were informative and of great value but also introduced a valuable product Joe invented called the Spinal-Tuner.

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 change how she baked.  She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.

She published recipes on how to bake extra delicious deserts-sugar free deserts, with extra healthy ingredients.  She created opportunity with the publication.  Her publishing efforts also made her an expert and enhanced her cooking school.  The main ingredients she chose to work with were quinoa, the Andean super grain, and stevia.

Jamie learned how to take out the unwanted ingredients such as white flour and white sugar and replace them with healthy ones.  She uses veggies and quinoa along with stevia and natural honey…all organic ingredients. The cakes are gluten-free as well by replacing flour with flaxseed meal nut flours.

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 here. 

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.  You can create 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.  Below is proof from confidential results of  sales I have made though publishing.

One November, I ventured $1,900 in postage to mail 10,000 letters. $16,823 came back in the mail (before I even had to pay the printer).  My profit after deducting all costs was $12,136 on the $1,900.

Then in December, I ventured $475.  It returned $3,106 in one month.  That led me to venture another $475 the same month.  $2,688 came back.  I ventured even more, another $475 that December and earned another $2,673.  I kept that ball rolling and ventured this amount one more time that month to gain an extra $3,970!  My business never ventured more than $475 at any one time, but my earnings were $12,437.  These are not just luck either.  I tried the same publication the next March and a $5,500 venture brought back $12,774.  In April a $1,900 venture returned $4,152.

These profits all took place in the early 1990s, but the efforts still generate residual income today.

With figures like this, you have got to ask can they be true?  I guarantee they are, but obtaining such results is not without pitfalls.  In fact, there are seventeen pitfalls I have learned to avoid and it took me more than a decade of struggle to learn how to avoid these problems.

Then the Publishing to Sell business got better, much… much better.  You see the earnings we just shared were all earned 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 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 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 that publishing to sell can bring you.

Back in 1974, 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 and the harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in.  Then I discovered a secret on how to avoid the 17 pitfalls of 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.

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 fulfilment 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 our grandchildren.  In each phase of our lives, the publish to sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired at that time.

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 becomes a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event.

As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.   Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  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.  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 #1:  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. This course that you can study online contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #2:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.   Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  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 #3: 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.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

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.

We have had self publishing writers weekend courses.  Delegates came from all over-young couples working for an income, publishers, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, businessmen, investors, real estate brokers, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, millionaires and housewives. People from all walks of life.

This course was an outstanding success and the raves from delegates you will read below show how satisfied the delegates were.  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 its fee.”

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 were overwhelmed at how much the course helped those delegates.  We felt so good that we decided to make it available to a larger audience.

So we did a recording when we conducted this course and also placed the course in written form online.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

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.”

weinhold book

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.

You can order Nicki’s first book at Amazon.com.

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.

kindle book

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.

Bill Winter

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.

Michelle wrote:  “I have some great news, my web site  http://healthy-holistic-living.com is now getting on average 2,000 visitors a day! Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month!  The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities.  We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.

“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running.  I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year.  The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.

“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”

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!”

Delegates from our last camp 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.
 
Donna/Jeanna

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!

gary-scott-image

Here I am at our Florida home… at work?

gary scott

Here I am at work in the Blue Ridge.  Better than a cubicle for sure!

You can have fun every day doing what you love as you accomplish goals that are important… to you… and are a service to your community.

What do you love? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing your passion and do something good for the world at the same time?

Your passion and self publishing create…magic, wealth, happiness.

Three other things you gain.

#1: Respect. If you are not a recluse like Merri and me, you’ll find yourself the center of attention at social events and with your friends and in business because publishing is highly respected.

#2: Power. Everyone wants publishers to distribute good information about them. And everyone fears publishers a bit. The pen IS mightier than the sword!

#3: Protection. Writers are protected by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You do not need a license to publish. There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing. Publishers enjoy almost more freedom than any other occupation because of the Freedom of the Press. This is so powerful because the first amendment is actually a part of the Bill of Rights. Just in case you missed this in school (as most students did including me) here are the exact words of this amendment:  “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

You become the press and you are set free.  You cannot get more protection than that.

Shall we get back to the money and lifestyle? What can self publishing do financially for you?

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.  We help you keep your business stay tuned to he times with the course updates.

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.

You can start self publishing to sell with no printing costs, no shelf space, no inventory, no postal delivery.  Most of the publishing expenses are eliminated.

Buyers of books fall into niches so the course helps you learn how to focus on a niche and create trust with the readers in that niche..   Choosing the correct niche is a first step in the elusive process of capturing the national psyche, a key to publishing to sell.  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.  Efforts you make today can generate income for dozens of years, sometimes for life!

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.

You can receive both the written course and a recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in this course.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us for a full refund on unfilled lessons.

You also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster, David Cross (at no extra cost).

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.  This is so important and I am so dedicated to gaining  more independence  that I’ll send this report to you free even if you do not order our Self Fulfilled course at this time.   See the link below for the free report  “How to Finance a Small Business” free and without obligation.

Double Digit Income – The Green Rocking Chair Business


Whether we are investing or running a small business, we are told, “Follow the Green”.  This is wise, but the idea can offer much more than money even if you use it from a rocking chair.

Yesterday I spoke at an investing seminar in Tampa, Florida conducted by ENR Asset Management Company.  One delegate I was speaking with explained how he purchased over 35,000 acres of farmland.  A timber company immediately offered him over $200 per acre just for the timber.

Not bad, $3.5 million of quick profit and he still owned the land.  He said, “I didn’t sell”.  That’s the nice thing about timber!  Unlike most other commodities, when it’s held, the inventory grows.

But investing in green is about more than timber.  Green goes far beyond profit and cash.

blue ridge farm

I often work  at my micro business from a rocking chair at our Blue Ridge farm.

Almost all the delegates at that Tampa seminar were boomers, so longevity was on their minds.  In addition, they were interested in the question, “What happens when I am relegated to a rocking chair?”

“Go for it” is my answer.

A rocking chair today is not what it was two decades ago.  Technology makes the rocking chair an effective business tool, as good a place to generate income as the the seat of a jet is for a jetsetter.   I can run my micro business, which generates a nice monthly double digit income, from that rocking chair in the mountain air on pleasant summer days.

I bring in the green better because I avoid commuting, the clutter of the city and I am surrounded by green and blue.

gary-scott-farm

Here is the view from my Blue Ridge rocking chair. I often work with this view during the summer.  In the winter, I trade the chair for a chaise lounge but the common element is a low stress activity that I really enjoy, which produces income and surrounds me with nature’s blue and green.

gary-scott-image

This makes the business of business incredibly fulfilling and encourages longevity.

Our recent message The Value of Trees said:

A National Library of Health article, “The Unique Human Health Effects of Blue Light” shows that color has an impact on our well being and health.  The article says:  “A major milestone came with the 1998 discovery of melanopsin retinal ganglion cells, a new type of photoreceptor in the eye.  These cells provide signals to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the brain’s master clock.  They project to many other brain regions as well, influencing myriad aspects of human physiology.”

Researchers have shown in humans that light influences hormone secretion, heart rate, alertness, sleep propensity, body temperature and gene expression.

Another article at Livescience.com, “Does the color green boost exercise effects?” shows some health benefits from the color of green.  Working out in the great outdoors may produce more psychological benefits than hitting the gym, suggest researchers who say that “green exercise” may boost mood, self-esteem, motivation and enjoyment. But according to a new study, the positive effects of green exercise may have more to do with the color green than with being surrounded by nature.

The study is the first to show that the color green may contribute to the  feel-good benefits of outdoor exercise, the researchers said. The findings were published in the Journal Environmental Science and Technology in August.

That’s the beauty of the new economy.  Technology changes everything.  A rocking chain set in nature’s serene beauty, (connected to 45 mbps of fiber optics) replaces the stale air of a crowded jet or the busy office that can only be reached through time consuming, stress creating, dangerous, frantic and simply plain rude heavy traffic.  Our own thoughts become our boss to gain the freedom to create a better, more independent life, free from the chains of big business, big pharma and big government whoever we are, whatever age and wherever we want to be.  We can truly live anywhere and earn everywhere.

Learn how to apply old wisdom with new technology to create your own green rocking chair business.  This not only produces income but can improve your health and help get rid of the blues.

How to Be Free Like This

Here is How to Gain Extra Freedom-While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Become a Pruppie!

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

We all know about preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.  And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that our worlds have changed and for most of us continues to shift.   There is still great opportunity for a better lifestyle, yet the preppers could be right.  Disaster might be looming in the near future.

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, those who expect the world to get better and live and earn based on that expectation but  who also happen to prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we Pruppies will still survive and prosper anyway.   We do not give up anything either.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

You’ll can learn how to gain income and tax deductions as Merri and I have working from your dining room tables.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.  This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it becomes.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back year.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land that is extraordinarily cheap to own.

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng growing in our back yard.  (I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report.)

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”. 

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy inexpensive north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny homes for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  If you have two cars, using a two-vehicle strategy can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as it creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three herbs that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminate the need to be in one place.  An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

How to Reduce Stress and Increase Profits Part II


Growing numbers of pensions have problems but there is a way to have the perfect form of financial security in 2017.   I call it the Perfect Pension.  To help understand how to build an unshakable economic platform here is Part Two of the report,  “The Pruppie Factor:  Seven Steps to Comfortable Living & Profits in 2017”.

If you missed Part One on how to integrate income and profits from savings, read Part One here, as this report will only be available free for three days.

“The Pruppie Factor – Seven Steps to Comfortable Living & Profits in 2017 – Part Two”

PIEC investing combines three types of investments.  The first is your own business or businesses that you are comfortable with and know more about than any other.

The second are safe, liquid investments, blue chip types or the ultimate in stogy and safe, country index ETFs.

The third type of investments are speculative deals or safe investments that use timeless leverage.

Two Ratios

There are two important ratios we need to set.  The first is the ratio between the safe and speculative investments we hold.  This will vary with every investor.  Our needs in relation to our assets, the time we have to let our investments grow and most important, the level of comfort should be determining factors.

My ratio fluctuates between 80% safe and 20% speculative and 70% safe and 30% speculative.

The Perfect Ratio for Leverage

A research paper shows how Warren Buffett has used leverage to amass his $50 billion dollar fortune.  The researchers found that the returns from Buffett’s investment company, Berkshire Hathaway, far outweighed those achieved by any rival that has operated for 30 years or more.  The research shows that neither luck nor magic are involved.  Instead, the paper shows that Buffet’s success hinges on using leverage at the ratio of 1.6 (or a 60% loan) to make large purchases of “cheap, safe, quality stocks”.  In other words, if he chose million to invest, he would borrow an extra $600,000 and invest $1,600,000.

The Perfect Percentage for Each Individual

Buffett has amassed an amazing fortune by leveraging a good strategy for very long periods of time, surviving rough periods where others might have been forced into a fire sale or a career shift.  He uses this in his borrowing:  not too little, not too much, for him.

All investors need to know how much they can borrow.  Financially and emotionally they need to stick for long periods and survive rough patches if that come along.

There are factors to consider when planning whether to use leverage or not and if so at which investment to loan ratio.

Factor #1:  How long can we invest?  We should avoid leveraging short term “get in and out investments”, unless we can afford to take an increased short term loss and have the discipline to cut that loss if and when it happens.

Otherwise we should plan to invest for at least a year (5 years is better) to let the leverage work.

Factor #2: How is our staying power?  If we don’t want or can’t liquidate a loss, can we afford to put up a additional capital as additional collateral?

Factor #3: How much can we afford to lose?  Leverage increases risk.  We can quickly lose part or all of our investments.  We should never speculate with savings that we cannot afford to lose.  We should not use our emergency funds.  We should not use the money set aside for our kids’ college education.  We should not mortgage our house in the hopes that we are going to make some great profit.  We cannot risk our pensions.  (Pension law normally does not allow leverage.)

The more important the need and the sooner the need for that money will be, the lower the loan to investment ratio should be.

The most important factor is comfort.

How do we feel about taking risk?

For many years, I made speculative investments in equities and made some good profits from them.  However, never once did I feel comfortable.

Some investors worry so much about their investments that the stress and strain to their nervous system is not worth any profit they might make. When to comes to equities, that’s me.

Speculating in real estate or currencies does not bother me much at all. Over the decades as I realized this, I dramatically reduced my speculative equity deals.  I hold just one such investment now and later in this report we’ll review why that one investment does not bother me.

Stress can kill!  We should never leverage a speculation if we are going to continually worry about it.

Be comfortable.  A PIEC plan gives us a way to gain everlasting wealth and a feeling of security by being aware of and in tune with a fulfilling, strategic investment plan that goes beyond short term dollars and cents.

Too few investors ask the question, “Why do I want to be wealthy?”

We know that food has to be bought.  Rent has to be paid.  Taxes, bills, cars, gas, education, health care, entertainment all require money.

Yet these expenses do not require that we be really wealthy.  In fact, as we saw earlier in this report, research shows that money’s ability to make us feel good is quite limited once we cross a threshold in the $75,000 a year range.

The link between having money and being happy is not strong because happiness comes in two ways “evaluative” and “affective”.

Evaluative happiness (a sense that we are progressing toward our life goals) keeps getting better as we earn more.

Affective happiness (how often we experience positive emotions like joy, affection and tranquillity, as opposed to negative emotions) does not rise much after a household reaches an annual income of around $75,000.

The research is clear.  Growing happiness comes from achieving goals, not getting or being rich.  When the process of making money is divorced from a long term strategy of completing fulfilling missions, the process of investing is more likely to engender fear and unhappiness, than a feeling of fulfillment and security.

When we invest without a personal, meaningful strategy; our investing logic can be turned upside down in numerous ways.  We risk having a behavior gap.

For example, the Golden Rule of Investing #7 is to never measure an investment by its high or low price.

Price does not represent value!  One of my clients (his name was Dick) taught me this lesson about 40 years ago.  Merri and I were conducting London real estate tours.  London property prices had crashed when most property prices globally were rising.  Property investments there offered excellent value at that time.  Dick heard my story and invested in a property related deal I had written about.  Over the next 12 months, Dick’s investment doubled.

He asked me what to do.  My reply was “If it were me, I would sell half the investment.”  He did.  The sale recouped his original investment.  He had the same amount still invested so his profits could grow, or not.  Over the next 6 months the price of Dick’s remaining shares rose 50% more.  He called me in a rage, disgusted that he had sold half.  He felt he had lost extra profit on the portion of the investment he had sold.  Dick had gained three times his original investment in 18 months.  Instead of being delighted with what he had gained, he was angry, frustrated and bitter over what he viewed as a loss.

He reinvested and never spoke to me again except one time.  He called again.  The share price had corrected dropping 70% in a short time.  Because his reinvestment had been exactly at the highest (distorted) price, he was now in a loss position.  His comment was “Why in the — had I ever suggested he invest?”

Dick should have been looking at a return of 75% in 24 months.  Instead he had a 5% loss.  The moral of the story is that Dick lost because he had no strategy except accepting the current share price of his investment as the final arbitrator of value.

If Dick had a longer term strategy and held onto his London real estate position he would have made a fortune.  Few locations have seen as much property appreciation in the last four decades.

The biggest lesson I gained from Dick was the fact that he was not content, even when he had huge profits.  With “profit as the only motive” investors are in doubt all the time.  If the price skyrockets up, the frustration is not having invested more.  If the price goes down, the frustration is having invested at all.  Every price move creates doubt, insecurity and questions.  “Should I invest more? Should I sell?  Should I hold?”

The reality is that share price rarely reflects true value.  In fact, the faster and higher an investment’s price rises beyond the rise of its income producing power, the lower its value.  Fast rising prices often mean rapidly dropping value and vice versa.  The higher and faster a share price rises, the less it takes for the price to turn around.  The bigger the correction is likely to be.

There is a correct value for every investment.  The problem is no one really knows what that value truly is.  People argue about correct pricing.  This argument is called a market…  investors putting their money where their mouths (or beliefs) are.

No one ever really knows a correct price.  There is always something we do not know because the true value of every investment is changing every single day.  Value even changes each hour or minute.  Factors, forces, events and conditions, far beyond a brain’s capacity to logically process, create changes in true value that no one can always know.

However as humans we all want to know the unknowable.  This flaw in thinking creates a tendency to focus on price and confuse price with value.

What we should know are the wants, needs and desires, created by our unique purpose that we have chosen as our destiny.

We should then know how our investments help complete this purpose, in terms of profit and fulfillment.  We should know how much we paid for investments, how much they are worth and the relationship between our investments and their income producing power.

Trying to know much more than this is counter productive.  There is always something we do not know.   When we invest, we will sometimes be wrong.  George Soros shared an important lesson on what to do about this human frailty when he stated that he was wrong as much as anyone else, but just for shorter periods of time.

He is also quoted as saying:  “The financial markets generally are unpredictable.  The idea that you can actually predict what’s going to happen contradicts my way of looking at the market.”

Soros realizes that it is human to not know everything.  There is no guilt in being wrong.  The only shame comes if we fail to correct our mistakes.

Dick’s mistake in London was that he tied his happiness to the price of his investment.  When the price of his investment rose, he was upset because he wished he had more.  When the price of his investments fell, he was upset because he had anything in that investment at all.

Focusing on investments at their current prices or its high or low price is short term thinking that can create a losing behavior gap.

Another reason many investors lose is because they want their investing to be exciting.

We can again learn from George Soros who said: “If investing is entertaining, if you’re having fun, you’re probably not making any money.  Good investing is boring.”

A few years after my experience with Dick, an investment adviser named Harris contacted me about an arbitrage deal with Japanese yen.

As far as I could tell, Harris was a well educated, conservative businessman who had earned a solid living and built a respectable estate so he could afford a comfortable lifestyle.  He needed to work, but not much.

Somehow a con artist slipped his grips into Harris who otherwise seemed an intelligent, well balanced person.  The scammer convinced Harris that someone in Japan wanted to do some weird form of currency arbitrage with him.  Harris was convinced he would make millions.  All he needed to do was put up some seed money.  What Harris explained to me made no sense at all.  The idea Harris was spouting was so convoluted that I couldn’t even apply logic to it.  Yet he found the deal fun and exciting!  He was able to participate in secret meetings, strange overnight faxes and lots of long distance phone calls to put this deal, always just around the corner, together.

Many times over the past decades I have found that even reasonable intelligent people, when captured by the allure of what they think is big business, refuse to accept that they are engaged in a big ripoff.  They simply will not listen, even when presented with the facts.

Harris refused my warnings that he was being fooled and robbed.  He ignored his business, invested all his savings (and perhaps those of some clients) in seeding the deal.  He eventually went bust.  There was some flap with the law and Harris chose to exit the scene via death by heart attack.  The more realistic term I believe was he passed away from a broken heart when he finally realized how he had given up his savings, his business and his integrity, all for a bit of excitement.

We can have fun and satisfaction with a worthwhile, personal purpose and accomplish missions that achieve a steady foundation of growth.  The process when combined with mathematical investing logic creates everlasting wealth.  Chasing the excitement of quick bucks always stacks the odds against us.  The idea of winning the lottery is exciting, but the odds against us are millions to one.

Perhaps the biggest reason for the behavior gap is the power of fear.

The great value investor, Warren Buffet, tells us why fighting fear is easier said than done. “There is no comparison between fear and greed.  Fear is instant, pervasive and intense.  Greed is slower.  Fear hits.”

This creates a problem because we are conditioned to have fear every day.  So much frightening information is thrown at us that fear becomes a habit.  Fear is the norm.  Almost every establishment that structures our society tries to make us feel fear.  The government says, “Break the law (there are so many laws now) and we’ll put you in jail”.   The medical and insurance professions rely on fear to sell their wares.

We are bombarded with bad news, risks and warnings so fear becomes a habit.  This fear is a hard habit to break as well because we remain immersed in a daily flood of alarming data.

Many readers write in and tell me how they plan to speculate in currency (or other commodity) futures, based on programs they have tested on paper.  I ask them what they’ll do about the fear.

Studying markets in advance is great but do we think that this type of test is anything like actually investing?

When I hear of testing a share (or commodity or currency) trading program on paper, I give this advice.

“Buy a 12 foot long wooden two by four.  Lay it on the floor.  Walk on it.  All 12 feet.  Unless you have an inner ear problem, or other mobility issue, walking the board is easy.

“Now span a 100 foot deep chasm with the board.  Now walk across the board over that 100 foot drop.  It’s the same board.  Right?  Can our emotions ignore the risk of death from the drop?  Probably not.  Mine certainly can’t!”

Actually we should not do this!  Hopefully the point is clear without risking death from a headlong plunge.  The 12 foot walk is easy on the ground.  Over the chasm it’s impossible for most of us… because of our emotion.

Investing on paper without risk lacks emotions.  When real money is made or lost, emotion kicks in and so does the behavior gap.  20% of good investing with real money is knowledge.  80% is emotional control.

My experience suggests that 20% of investors look for change, calculate what the new horizons might bring and invest based on inner beliefs and purpose they stick to.  They do not get caught in the emotions of greed when markets rise. Nor do they panic when markets fall.  Perhaps it is not a coincidence that 80% of the world’s wealth is controlled by those 20% of the population.

80% of investors invest emotionally and lose.

Wise investors know that there is always something they do not know.  Wise investors embrace change as they embrace the reality of their emotions and circumstances.  Wise investors adjust their individual investing style accordingly.

Adjusting our investing styles to our individual personality is important because each of us thinks and feels differently.

An article “It’s not your fault you don’t learn from mistakes… your brain is just wired badly” tells of research that shows that the ability to learn from mistakes varies so wildly between people.

A study at Goldsmiths, University of London created insights about why some people are better at learning from their mistakes than others.

The researchers analyzed electrical brain responses and identified the difference in brain activity to see why some people learn from their errors and experiences faster than others.

The study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, investigated brainwave patterns to see why some were able to more easily use feedback to check past performance and to adjust their next performance accordingly than others.

Fear is a much stronger motivational force than greed.  Two psychologists, Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, have conducted many studies on the psychology of investing.  In one study they gave potential investors an option between a sure bet of $3,000, or an 80 percent chance of winning $4,000 (meaning there was a 20 percent chance of winning nothing).  Most said they would take the $3,000.

The same question, was then asked in a different way.  Would you rather lose $3,000 or accept an 80 percent chance of losing $4,000 (with a 20 percent chance of losing nothing).  Most took the riskier bet.  The subjects were willing to take a bigger risk to avoid losing money than they were when they stood to make more money.

Know Thyself

Investors are better when they believe in a purpose and understand (at least a little) their attitudes and fears.  There are as many ways to invest as there are investors.  Each of us live by a multitude of emotions created by association over our lifetime.  These emotions are totally subjective and completely unique to each individual.  Take a ping pong paddle as an example.  If one person played happy games of ping pong every day with their friends, every time they see a ping pong paddle their neural system is flooded with neural transmitters that enhance energy and flood the person with a sense of positivity and well being.  Another person who was often beaten with a ping pong paddle sees the same paddle and associates it with pain, terror and fear.

Kirk Kerkorian, a billionaire investor recently passed at age 98.  He left a tip about investing and knowing oneself when he explained, why, when he was a billionaire, he continued to take risks.  “When you’re a self-made man, you start very early in life,” he told The Las Vegas Review-Journal in 1999.  ‘In my case it was at 9 years old when I started bringing income into the family. You get a drive that’s a little different, maybe a little stronger, than somebody who inherited.’”

He started very poor and became rich but nearly lost everything several times.  His attitude was, “Sometimes you lose, but that’s the nature of the game.  There’s always another game and another chance to win.”

Mr. Kerkorian knew his attitudes and had rituals that helped him develop missions that would accomplish what he considered his purpose in life.

Creating New Rituals with Association

Each of us has a personal task to find and face our weaknesses and fears, to discover and reinforce our strengths and desires.  Breaking down old habits of thought and emotion, some that have been with us a lifetime, is hard.

For example I have a tendency to worry.  I know it and the way I face this is with my dad’s old fashioned shaving brush… an “Ever Ready Guaranteed” that he kept with an Old Spice shaving mug.

I have found that I can replace my worry with gratitude, that I was born at this special time, to such special parents and have so many great investing opportunities literally laid in my path.  Every time I have followed my passions in life, some great way to earn excellent income and profits has been there.

What are the odds that I would land in Hong Kong just before it emerged as the world’s hottest stock market for decades?  What are the chances that I would then move to London and then Naples where two of the hottest real estate markets in the world would explode?  What are the chances I would visit Ecuador just before it became one of the hottest expat countries anywhere?

The odds of each were a billion to one and yet each time I moved somewhere I loved, the equivalent of a winning lottery ticket was waiting for me.  So why should I ever worry?

I use my dad’s shaving brush to remind me of this incredible good fortune.  My father passed at an early age and I wish we had had more time together.  I am enormously grateful for what he taught me and how he loved me.  So every day I start by using a gift he left me… that shaving brush.

Picking up that brush brings back a touch of the wisdom and good feelings he shared with me and reminds me how lucky I am, even if my investments happened to have risen or fallen.

There is nothing spectacular about these ideas he gave but the powerful memory of being loved and remembering his touches of wisdom provide positive associations that start my day.

One way to being smarter… happier… healthier is to start every day with something that creates a happy association.  Warm and fuzzy is good!  Such associations are comforting and we are more likely to make wise decisions the day based on what is right for us… instead of based on fear and dread.  That’s darned important in these times of social and economic turmoil and change that create so many feelings of threat.

This is fundamental to well being because happy associations create positive attitudes and positivity cuts through the multitude of noise that an imbalanced society creates.

There is even scientific evidence that the power of this type of ritual can even improve our DNA.

Dr. John Douillard wrote about this at his www.lifespa.com site.

Here is an excerpt:  “In a new study set to be published in the Journal of Psychological Sciences, Harvard Business School researchers set out to measure the effects of ritual.  A ritual could be singing happy birthday, or how you brew your coffee, or saying grace before a meal.

“The study demonstrated that when a ritual was performed before eating, the food tasted better and delivered more satisfaction than when there was no pre-eating ritual.

“In the study, participants cut a chocolate bar in half.   First, they opened only one half and enjoyed that half.  Then, they were allowed to open the other half and eat it – a very simple ritual.

“Another segment of the study created a ritual around eating a carrot.  Participants were asked to hit the table 5 times and close their eyes for 5 seconds before eating the carrot.

“In both groups, the carrot and chocolate were enjoyed more as compared to control groups who did not take part in a ritual.  Additionally, participants in the ritual groups took more time to eat and were actually willing to pay more for the carrot and chocolate after the experience of the ritual.”

The latest research in the field of epigenetics has shown that behaviors and belief systems can actually change our DNA.

This is one way to easily and gently create improvements in your life.   No matter what your background… your genetic makeup… your circumstances… your good fortune or bad, you can make circumstances better by creating positive routines.

The study Dr. Douillard mentioned did have a caveat: the rituals have to be repeated steps, not random gestures, and you cannot watch someone else say grace or open a bottle of wine and expect to enjoy the meal or wine better.  You have to do it yourself.

You can make your life better… no matter what circumstances exist.  Just create simple, positive rituals that you use at the beginning of and throughout every day.

This is why slow, worry free, good value investing is at the core of PIEC’s Everlasting Wealth.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  They create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.   When we combine the  income, from our own fulfilling business, with slow, worry free, good value investing we bridge the gap.

There is always something we don’t know.  The years ahead will create challenges and be interesting.  When we become Pruppies, we look forward to the new with enthusiasm instead of dread.   Merri and I look forward to sharing ideas and information in 2017 that help bring everlasting wealth for you.

Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  They create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.   Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my (almost) 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout 2017 with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

For example, in the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!   There are currently ten good value (non US) developed markets,  plus 10 good value emerging markets.

Pi shows how to easily create a diversified, worry free portfolio in some of these good value markets using Country Index ETFs.

The current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” and updated this in 2016 and am about to update it for 2017.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged silver & gold speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Silver Dip 2017” offers enormous profit potential in 2017.

Spirit of the Wild Horse


The logo at our farm is the Wild Horse Spirit.

Screen Shot 2016-09-25 at 6.29.05 AM

I carved this slice of maple and it sits at the farm’s entrance.

We chose this logo from one of our tipis, but it is the philosophy of this spirit that was the reason behind our choice.

Legend says that The Wild Horse Spirit lives in the spirit realm.  This horse appears as a flashing light in dreams.  As the dream traveler runs through your dreams he is seeking the most honorable and outrageous dreams to grant.  Flying on the stream of wisdom, yet acting on whims, he seeks an untamed dreamer to fly with him!

This describes the way we like to make life changing decisions to follow our dreams.

Here is an except from my recently published report “Live Anywhere, Earn Everywhere”.

Using your heart and the brain provides real traction so you don’t just jump from thing to thing based on how you feel.  Crank up your full brain capacity, by starting with how you feel.  Then apply your logic.  Stick to the basics.  Always look for good value.  Do not let fear OR greed tempt you to do something that does not feel right to you just because everyone else does.  Truth is not created by the continuous repetition of an error.  The majority of investors and businesses that start in most markets are wrong most of the time, so you cannot depend on following the masses.

Don’t be afraid to oppose the trends if that’s where your passions are.  Because Merri’s and my path of the past 30+ years has been so bizarre in many ways, let me share it to help you see how feeling leads to a logical filter and action.  Seeing our experiences may help you, whatever you do, wherever you go, and give you a better understanding of how to spot and adapt to change.

Looking for a purpose led us from a million dollar (plus) home into a tent.  Our home was just a few steps from the beach in Naples, Florida with a big upstairs study, front and back covered porches, kitchen, nine bedrooms and four baths.

We moved into a Coleman tent in the Blue Ridge and a tin roofed shack in the Andes.

Neither had electricity or running water.

I started unknowingly thinking about this when Merri and I lived in Naples.  We had earned a good income, more than we ever expected, and being fairly frugal were no longer concerned with day to day living costs.  We had been busy working (instead of spending) and we did it from our home (few overheads) without staff (even fewer overheads), so a lot of the money that floated by, stuck.  After a certain point, each extra dollar became more and more like the sixth cup of coffee in the morning.

Merri and I started to itch for something new.  Something had to be scratched, but we did not know what.  The itch grew yet remained unscratchable.  This resulted in a process many of our friends called “temporary insanity”.   Some friends went further and dropped the word temporary.

At that time we appeared to have a perfect life.  We owned that wonderful nine bedroom house in Old Naples, one of the most beautiful, perfect cities in the world.  We had our comfortable mountain cabin in North Carolina that sat deep in the forest on a rushing creek.  This was one of the most traditional areas to get away and recharge.  Plus to really get away we had a condo on a crescent beach in the Dominican Republic, where everything was different and worked outside the Western box of normalcy.  We traveled globally, getting to London several times a year.  Other cities regularly visited were Paris, Prague, Copenhagen, two or three Caribbean stops, all in the name of business, so they were mostly tax deductible trips.  Everything was paid for and profitable.  There were no mortgages, no losses, no debt.  Our children were grown, happy, healthy and doing well.

We had everything we had imagined and more, until it started… that itch.

I thought the itch began with me, but see now that it really was an outside force moving both Merri and me along.  We were like light bulbs thinking the light was ours.  This was first noted at the Victoria, Canada airport.  We had taken nearly a month off for a deep purification-meditation session with an Indian healer at his remote home on Salt Spring Island.  While there, this vague itch began to focus itself.  There was no big picture yet (this would take over a decade to resolve), just one tiny first step.  I realized we needed to sell our house in Naples and move on.  I say this was a tiny first step, but actually that was huge!  Merri and I loved that house.  We had no entanglements, no debt, no mortgages.

Our kids had scattered to the four winds.  Francesca was in Costa Rica; Cinda in Portland, Ele in London and Cheri and Jake with us in Naples.  When one is continually on the move and the family scattered, the grounding of family and home is important!  Our Florida home was perfectly located in the middle of Portland, London and Costa Rica.  Those nine bedrooms had worked just right, one for Merri and me, one for granny and one for each of the kids, plus two were our offices.

There was one more problem.  By selling our house, we had nowhere to go.  What would we do?  Live in a tent?

I should have asked this question before I scratched my itch in Victoria at the airport because this is where we did end up living!  Victoria Airport at that time had one of the lousiest cafeterias in the world.  I will never forget the incredibly 50s sandwich (perhaps that was when it was prepared).  I had little enthusiasm as I unwrapped it, but even less enthusiasm for the conversation I was about to begin.  Merri loved our house and Naples.  These were her roots for thirty years and I was about to ask her to rip them out.  She really loved the place.  “More than me,” I thought.  Yet the itch was growing.  I had to scratch!  “Merri”, I said, “I am going to say something and if you do not agree, let’s forget we even started the conversation.”  (I was creating lots of back doors for a quick exit on this one.)

“You think we should sell our house and move, don’t you?” she said.  “I have been feeling the same way and agree.  Let’s do it!”  Talk about drop jaw!  I was so astounded that I could not talk.  My face was so frozen I could not even think about eating that sandwich (this was not a bad thing).  I had never even hinted this subject to that moment unless I talked in my sleep!

The fact that we both arrived in Victoria with the same thinking, at the same time and totally agreed to something that was totally outlandish and illogical should have been the next clue.  But again, I remind you we were not looking.  We had no idea that anything was happening at all.  Besides we could never have figured this out.

“Well, that’s settled,” I happily thought, “a 30 second conversation in which we carefully thought through the fact that we are about to uproot what seems, the very essence of our lives, abandon our family, friends, home, career, just about everything.  Glad we spent plenty of time on that!”

Over the days, weeks and months that followed, we created a plan.  Clues encouraged us.  For example, Merri refused to tell our staff who helped in the house and gardens that we were selling.   She refused to have a sign out front.   I continued to tell her how wrong it was that we did not discuss this with those who had helped us for years.  But the very week before the house closed, they came and asked to speak to us.  They told us that finally they were able to get good jobs in their field (they were all teachers who had immigrated from Guatemala ) and they would do their best to help us when they could!  What a relief!  What a plan that the powers of be had for us!

Then our daughter moved out of town.

Then our son had a job promotion that took him to Atlanta.  None of the family was left.

We had sold our Dominican condo and the North Carolina cabin.  We had our house in Naples for sale and we were changing our entire way of life, but that Naples house would not sell.  The listing just sat there for sale and would not move.   Good thing too, because we did not have a new place to go.

We finally bought a farm in the Blue Ridge and also bought a 950+ acre hacienda Rosapamba deep in the Andes.  The second those sales went through, our house in Naples sold.  In fact, it sold too soon because neither the farm nor the hacienda had a house in which we could live.  We moved into a tent.  Does this seem strange, moving from a huge, nine bedroom house into a 80 square foot COLEMAN tent.   Merri and I felt strangely proud, though we still did not understand why.

tent

Our first home at our North Carolina farm.

Let me be clear, we had millions in the bank and in assets.  We did not have to live like this.  We chose to live like this because we felt we were led to do so.  We loved the process.

The lead you follow should be satisfying and attractive to you.   Your nature is to seek sweet aromas, not run from bad smells.  We enjoyed every step along the way.  It also could be the same for you too.

What is even more amazing is that when you follow the lead and look back you’ll see so much sense you may ask “Why didn’t I think of that before?”  The future only reveals itself in the present and the past, but there is a positive future that comes when you follow the lead that is presented.

The propelling drive behind these leads is your passion, not the desires of others.  Your friends and family may not understand the decisions you make.  When we moved into that tent, many of our friends and family probably began checking to see they could have us certified.  We began fixing an old Johnny Appleseed farm house and I continued to write what I am sure many readers said were, “strange things.”  There was no logic that we could see.  The moves were not related to making money, but our change led us to another fortune.  Every step we took was a most logical investing and business decision, that came in a most illogical way.

I am sharing these thoughts today because next week we in the US will be going through an election, where it appears that our choices are pretty bad.  So many of the readers I speak with start their comments on choosing President with, “actually I am not impressed with any of the candidates”.

Keep up your spirits.  Don’t let this meltdown of American politics stop you from having dreams and don’t stop pursuing them, no matter how wild.

A Growing Deception

While the world was distracted by the American politics, a more important power struggle is taking place.   If that struggle is lost what’s left of our privacy, the safety of our food supply, the control over our health, the safety of our money and even the sanctity of our opinions and thoughts could be lost.

Almost half of America’s voters rejected the postwar global economic order. This could leave a cloud of uncertainty over the U.S. and world economies, that create market risks at any time.  Yet the bigger danger continues to grow.   This struggle is taking place, right now.   You are reading about a tiny part of this conflict daily in the news.  Part of the danger is that most of the clash is hidden from view.  The public does not see underneath the visible spin nor do they understand the truly horrible consequences that losing this struggle brings.

The great risk comes because there is an association forming that could not only impact health care, nutrition and the environment, but can control what you read on the internet, see over cell phones, watch on TV and what trends in social media.  In short everything you write or say could be used  to control what you hear and read.

The warning shot, that could be seen, was the merger between Bayer and Monsanto.  This union is horrible enough, yet is only the tip of the iceberg as there are seven companies involved in a more sinister plot.

The momentum of this dangerous alliance has picked up much faster than anticipated.   I began researching and preparing a report “Learn Anywhere, Earn Everywhere” last month when the Bayer-Monsanto merger was the big deal.   Bayer and Monsanto are two of the seven firms involved in this almost invisible take-over of our food and medical services as well as the internet, cell phones and TV.  I started researching when I found the depth of the Bayer-Monsanto merger.  I was truly concerned and shocked because my research discovered that the consolidation of Bayer and Monsanto is not the biggest merger nor the most dangerous by far.

I miscalculated how much time we have.  I went to work on the report right away, taking my time to delve deeply, but even before I have finished the report, events have begun to heat up.  The pace of this hidden unification has increased.  Now another merger is taking place, far more destructive and the alliance has an incredible lobby program working to make sure that the deal goes through.

A triad of three huge concerns and four smaller ones with hundreds of billions of dollars have built one of the most formidable lobbying operations in Washington.  Nearly 100 registered lobbyists are already on retainer and they include former members of Congress.   One company in this heptagon is also the largest donor to federal lawmakers.  The donations we know of equal more than $11 million to 374 of the House’s 435 members and 85 of the Senate’s 100 members in this election cycle.

This deadly seven point affiliation is likely to snake into almost every part of our livelihood.  One part of the cartel will increase our dependence on modified food that can purposely increase our needs for pharmaceuticals manufactured and sold at outrageous prices by another arm of the group.  The organizations will know more about us than any other group in existence.  They will (in fact they already are) act as spies for the government.  This amalgamation will control what ads we see, the products we buy, listen into our phone calls and even monitor and influence what we see on TV.

Sadly most of the public will not even know that this fusion has taken place.  Life will appear to go on as normal.  They won’t even see the change as what’s left of their good life which could be drained away by corporate malfeasance.

This is why I am rushing a report to you so you can be one of the few who avoid the ruin of this alliance and even gain rather than lose what’s left.  The report contains seven steps we can take to gain benefits and protection from this cartel.

Here is some background.  At the beginning of the 20th century, Carl Duisberg, the head of Bayer, created a profit sharing cartel from three firms BASF, Bayer and Agfa, called the Dreibund (Triple Alliance) or little IG.

This German chemical association dominated commerce everywhere under the name of IG Farben, the largest company in Europe, the 4th largest anywhere and the largest chemical company in the world.

Because “Power Corrupts” this company morphed into something truly evil before and during the Second World War.

After WWII IG Farben was considered so morally corrupt it could not be allowed to continue to exist and was split into its original constituent companies.  Today Agfa, BASF, Sanofi and Bayer remain.

This is where facts become truly scary.  Some of these very same companies have merged with other mega concerns to create a new American Dreibund (a Triple Alliance dominating the USA).   This new cartel has such power it can take control of your food, your medicine and even influence if not control what you read and the information you access for health and wealth.  Even worse, they can monitor everything you do and give it to others in government and business as well.

From a political point of view we cannot do much about this alliance.   The cartel has hundreds of billions and hundreds of lobbyists.  They are making their big move right now, to take advantage of the election distraction.  They know that right after the election politicians are willing to accept bad news because it will be forgotten in four years.  In addition their greatest enemy in the government has only a couple of months left as the head of the Federal agency that will fight this cartel.

Only a few people will know how to take advantage of the inadvertent advantages we can gain from the results of this alliance.

The sooner we act, the greater the benefits.   This is why I want to rush my newest report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” to you.  This report shares how to protect what you have from this coalition that is taking over mainstream media, our food supply as well as our medical history, health care and communications.

Fortunately a loophole can set you free.  You can protect what you have and actually improve your situation, a lot.  Merri and I have already jumped though the loophole and want to share why and how you should too.

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Become a Pruppie!

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

We all know about preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.  And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that our worlds have changed and for most of us, there is still great opportunity for a better lifestyle, yet the preppies could be right.

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, those who expect the world to get better and live and earn based on that expectation but enjoy a progressive lifestyle of freedom that also happens to prepare us for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper anyway.  We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in this report, you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

You’ll even learn how to turn dining room tables into income and tax deductions as we have with these dining room tables we build out of local wood.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers the American Dreibund has planned for the public.  The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, has continued to grow.  There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also works well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.  This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it can become.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back year.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land  that is extraordinarily cheap.

Ginseng growing in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report.

There are are specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increase your income, make you smarter, healthier and provide tax benefits as well. 

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

Our Florida greenhouse.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (aka health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three plants that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

The Power of Adversity


Adversity can bring great rewards.

When I first moved to Hong Kong in the early 1970s, selling US mutual funds to Chinese, the company I worked for went broke.

That was one of the best things that ever happened in my business.  Every cloud has a silver lining.   That adversity led me to reverse roles and write about the benefits of Hong Kong mutual funds for Americans rather than the reverse.  This was exactly the right thing to do then.  The Hong Kong market dramatically outperformed Wall Street for decades.

There is a recent example of how a micro businessman who used AIRBNB turned adversity into a pot of silver (or perhaps gold).

AIRBNB has been popular with travelers and the hosts who rent their places.  The company has millions of properties in over 3o,000 cities globally.  We use the AIRBNB platform to rent the cabins at our farm.   We get a lot of visitors through AIRBNB.

merrily farms

Entrance to our farm.  See an AIRBNB listing here

AIRBNB’s system works great for us but their short-term rentals often run afoul of regulations aimed at stopping a shortage of affordable housing, protecting the hotel industry or making sure that quiet neighborhoods do not become noisy.

A Wall Street Journal article (1) explains how Ulrik Binzer used AIRBNB to rent his home in Tiburon, California. Then he had some adversity.   Tiburon decided to ban short-term rentals.  He was upset by the blanket rule that banned his renting entirely.

Then Mr. Binzer saw the silver lining. He had an idea for a company that helps city governments who have trouble enforcing short term rental laws.  Airbnb and rival sites don’t publicly list addresses, so many municipalities do not have the resources to find and stop offenders.

Mr. Binzer’s company (Host Compliance) compiles data such as the location of short-term rental listings and provides cities on which listings violate local rules.   His company has over a dozen local governments as clients, ranging from Vancouver to Napa, California and his service is not cheap (it can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year).  Yet the savings for cities are high as they can avoid hiring full-time staff people.

He has turned the loss of a little rental income into the gain of a lot of micro business income that has great growth potential.

Next time, when change brings what seems like adversity, look again for a bigger picture.   Somewhere in the adversity is a silver lining, or maybe even a pot of gold.

This German chemical association dominated commerce everywhere under the name of IG Farben, the largest company in Europe, the 4th largest anywhere and the largest chemical company in the world.

Because “Power Corrupts” this company morphed into something truly evil before and during the Second World War.

After WWII IG Farben was considered so morally corrupt it could not be allowed to continue to exist and was split into its original constituent companies.  Today Agfa, BASF, Sanofi and Bayer remain.

This is where facts become truly scary.  Some of these very same companies have merged with other mega concerns to create a new American Dreibund (a Triple Alliance dominating the USA).   This new cartel has such power it can take control of your food, your medicine and even influence if not control what you read and the information you access for health and wealth.  Even worse, they can monitor everything you do and give it to others in government and business as well.

From a political point of view we cannot do much about this alliance.   The cartel has hundreds of billions and hundreds of lobbyists.  They are making their big move right now, to take advantage of the election distraction.  They know that right after the election politicians are willing to accept bad news because it will be forgotten in four years.  In addition their greatest enemy in the government has only a couple of months left as the head of the Federal agency that will fight this cartel.

Only a few people will know how to take advantage of the inadvertent advantages we can gain from the results of this alliance.

The sooner we act, the greater the benefits.   This is why I want to rush my newest report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” to you.  This report shares how to protect what you have from this coalition that is taking over mainstream media, our food supply as well as our medical history, health care and communications.

Fortunately a loophole can set you free.  You can protect what you have and actually improve your situation, a lot.  Merri and I have already jumped though the loophole and want to share why and how you should too.

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Become a Pruppie!

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

We all know about preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.  And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that our worlds have changed and for most of us, there is still great opportunity for a better lifestyle, yet the preppies could be right.

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, those who expect the world to get better and live and earn based on that expectation but enjoy a progressive lifestyle of freedom that also happens to prepare us for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper anyway.  We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in this report, you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

You’ll even learn how to turn dining room tables into income and tax deductions as we have with these dining room tables we build out of local wood.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers the American Dreibund has planned for the public.  The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, has continued to grow.  There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also works well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.  This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it can become.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back year.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land  that is extraordinarily cheap.

Ginseng growing in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report.

There are are specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increase your income, make you smarter, healthier and provide tax benefits as well. 

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

Our Florida greenhouse.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (aka health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three plants that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

Profit and Save the Environment


Here is a micro business idea that can create income and help the environment in the process.

While much of the world’s population is distracted by the negativity of this terrible presidential campaign, a serious issue is being battled in the Senate over renewable energy.

Autumn is here and the entrance to our home is growing quite beautiful.

gary-scott-farm

No matter who becomes president, environmental change will be pretty much beyond their control.

The NYTimes article Next “Renewable Energy: Burning Forests, if Senators Get Their Way” tells how the Senate has strongly supported benefits of burning trees for electricity.  The arguments for using biomass are that burning biomass is a zero-carbon event because the carbon dioxide from burning trees is absorbed when the trees grow back and recapture all the carbon released when they were burned.

The counter argument is that burning trees to generate electricity generates more carbon per unit of power than using coal and that it takes many decades for seedlings to grow into trees and recapture all the carbon emitted.  Those against burning biomass argue that this make carbon build up worse off for 40 to 50 years and the world simply does not have that kind of time.

The arguments go on and on and sadly if you are like me, there is no way of knowing which side of the argument is.

There is one thing we can do, one way or the other… plant trees.

An article at eartheasy.com:  “Carbon-storing-trees-and-how-to-plant-them” says:

The total amount of carbon on the planet is constant, but it moves around and changes form with relative ease.  Burning of fossil fuels, which have stored huge amounts of carbon below the earth’s surface for millennia, converts the carbon to carbon dioxide (CO2).  In the atmosphere, CO2 absorbs and emits infrared radiation, contributing to planetary warming.  The current level of CO2 is thought to be the highest in 20 million years, and scientists are working on solutions to capture and safely contain atmospheric carbon.  One approach, “terrestrial sequestration”, involves the simple planting of trees.  A tree absorbs carbon during photosynthesis and stores it in the wood for the life of the tree.  The massive trunk of an ancient oak or redwood represents many tons of sequestered carbon.

–  Fast growing trees store the most carbon during their first decades, often a tree’s most productive period.

–  Long-lived trees can keep carbon stored for generations without releasing it in decomposition.

–  Large leaves and wide crowns enable maximum photosynthesis.

–  Native species will thrive in your soil and best support local wildlife.

–  Low-maintenance, disease-resistant species will do better without greenhouse-gas-producing fertilizers and equipment.

Consider these reliable and versatile star-performers.  The “best trees” vary by region, so look around local parks to see what’s hardy in your climate zone.

1.   Yellow Poplar (or Tulip Tree), the top carbon-storer in one New York City study, works hard under rough conditions.

2.  Silver Maple can trap nearly 25,000 pounds of CO2 in a 55 year period, according to the Center for Urban Forests.

3.  Oak (White Oak, Willow Oak, Laurel Oak and Scarlet Oak) has adapted to thrive in many climates, provides food and shelter to wildlife.

4.  Horse Chestnut grows well in cities; its domed top provides exceptional shade which offers passive cooling benefits.

5.  Red Mulberry provides the added benefit of delicious seasonal fruit.

6.  London Plane is an excellent choice for urban planning, very tolerant of pollution and root-cramping, resistant to cold and disease.

7.  American Sweetgum has brilliant fall colors, is large and long-lived. In the north, consider American Linden instead.

Tree nurseries are excellent ways to produce extra income as well. 

Help the environment.  Grow trees and earn at the same time.  They are a perfect ‘shoestring startup’ business for those who have a passion for the environment and trees.  You can start in your backyard.  With a few hundred dollars and a thousand square feet of space you can generate $10,000 to $50,000 of sales in two to five years.

Live Well and Be Free

Here are 5 global income experiences and 7 business secrets that can help you live well and free anywhere.

I began my international business 50 years ago and have been creating and running international micro businesses since.

During that time my wife, Merri, and I have been able to live, work and earn all over the world… literally anywhere we wanted because of seven secrets we gained which we share here with you.  We have been blessed with global earning experiences that helped us make millions… but were also fun, such as with British Lordships.   See how one micro business helped us rub elbows with British Royalty below.

gary-scott-international-business

One of Merri’s businesses that worked with British Royalty was featured in Doonesbury.

Global Earning Experience #1:  Lepers.  Our micro businesses have been fulfilling.  Merri started her international business in her 20s (long before she knew me) importing Italian clocks to the USA.  This earned so much ($80,000 in the first year) that she created other micro businesses helping orphans in the Yucatan and Haitian lepers (at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital) produce crafts she sold for them in the USA.

Excellent income ($80,000 in the 1970s was a lot of cash)…  incredible contacts… working with Dr. Larimer and Gwen Mellon who created the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti… and enormous satisfaction.  Merri still cries over 40 years later when she tries to speak of the gratitude of the lepers and her time and life in Haiti.

Plus she gained lessons that allowed her to live and earn… in many places and many ways.

Then we got together.

Global Earning Experience #2:  Lords.  Another of Merri’s ideas (in the mid 1980s) was to broker British titles to wealthy Americans.  We made a ton from that… even gained 15 minutes of fame when Gary Trudeau learned about this business and immortalized it by having B.D. Zonker buy a title!

What fun… profitable, plus stimulating, meeting and working with the Blue Bloods of Britain… visiting their castles… invited to their events and affairs.

Before I get ahead of myself, may I ask you a question?

Would you like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three or even more places wherever and whenever you choose?  Would you be happier with more freedom, lack of debt, and a life of riches, adventure and travel?  Would you be glad to feel confident that you can discover interesting and fun business ideas again and again that not only bring in extra income but also help the poor and improve the environment?

If so then read on… because… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

gary-scott-international-business

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

You can also enjoy such a lifestyle because after years of search, I found business secrets that you can use and enjoy.

Global Earning Experience #3: Hospitality.  Here’s a hotel we owned and operated in Ecuador.  Once we sold this we joined the sharing economy and began offering rentals in our North Carolina cabins through AIRBNB and houses in Florida.  We became designated super hosts within months and are adding thousands of extra dollars to our income every month.  If you want to provide genuine care and hospitality you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

gary-scott-international-business

Having a variety of places to live is part of one of the secrets on how to earn more, have a better life with more fun, adventure and greater freedom.

Global Earning Experience #4:  Import-Export.   Here I am at our Florida house showing clients how to import.

gary-scott-international-business

I was wearing a hand tailored, made to order, high quality wool suit from Ecuador that could be imported into the US for as little as $135 .  Plus that Panama hat was made in Ecuador.  This is odd but true, all genuine Panama hats are made in Ecuador.  We import Ecuador roses year round as well, all from one of our tax deductible US home office.

Dozens-of-roses

The secrets we’ll share below are not about how to buy suits or flowers though.  The secrets show ways to make money (while helping others) marketing products and services wherever you are and much more…. globally.

Global Earning Experience #5:  Green Produce.   We have an orange grove and lake at our Florida home and

gary-scott-international-business

are among the first to test new organic ways to make citrus farming better for the environment and the consumer.  In North Carolina we cultivate Wild American Ginseng as well as aquafarm.

These are just a few of the business experiences that can help you have the freedom to earn globally.  They are shared in our emailed correspondence course, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

The course teaches a system based on seven secrets so powerful that it creates money for you regardless of where you are:  in town, out of the country, traveling or even in places as remote as we live.

These secrets have worked for us in real estate… titles… tours… agriculture… clothing… hospitality… alternative health…  spirituality… printing… publishing and art businesses for Merri and me all over the world.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

Merri and I have created a special program we call “Live Well and Free Anywhere” that makes it possible for you to enjoy extra income doing something you love.  You can gain full or part time and enjoy excellent profits as you have fun and do something good in the world.

My search stumbled on the fact that most millionaires make their money in business.  This discovery led to a study of rich businesses, ones that generate everlasting wealth.  Here are five of seven secrets we learned and have used in our  micro businesses:

Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each investment made needs to make huge returns.

Secret #2: They need to be greater than their owner’s time.  They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income.  You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might.  One surgeon explained it this way.  “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands.  Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops.   My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun.  Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money.  Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun.  The most important fact about making and keeping wealth is that those who were richest absolutely love what they were doing.  Money is of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

These secrets created a fantastic way to make money with my own international micro business doing what I love!

You too can have everlasting wealth by turning your passion into profit.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

You too can have the freedom to do what you love from any place you like, even operating (actually preferably) from your bedroom, dining room or den if you wish.

What do you love? Rare cars?  You can make a fortune creating a business around them.  Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?  Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?

Are you concerned with the environment or humanitarian problems, with crimes, war or poverty?  Would you like to help wipe these social problems out in the course of your business?

Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make all kinds of money in a global business related to golf?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income and live wherever you please in the process!

Whatever your passion you can learn how to earn by creating an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

Take fishing, for example.

I am no great aquafarmer, but the numbers and lifestyle work on a small scale.  We pay about $3.50 a pound to stock the fish, they double, triple, even quadruple in size and we sell them at a local butcher shoppe for a modest profit.   This is not a big deal, but does generate income, helps attract guests to stay in our rental cabins, puts some great trout dinners on our table and is a thoroughly enjoyable part of my daily labor.  I need this to counter balance sitting in front of a computer.

Over a couple of months the fish grow… a lot.

gary scott

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

Millions of people love fishing but don’t have a pond.  This does not mean they cannot be involved in fishing.  Here are just a few of many ways that others have profitably matched this passion with profit.

Two of my friends, John and Lou, grew up near me in the Oregon mountains.  They were outdoor adventure types and moved to Canada, where they homesteaded 1,200 acres on a trout-filled lake in mid British Columbia.  They built a fishing camp that attracts fisherman from around the world.

Duncan Kinderman on the other hand loved fishing and castles.  He bought a castle on the River Tay, a great Scottish salmon river, and offered time shares for fisherman from Britain, Europe and the US.

Another entrepreneur I know was from Montana.  His skills were in marketing so he sold fishing trips for fishing camps.  He attended rod and gun exhibitions, met owners of these camps and arranged to sell their fishing trips to the US, Argentina and even in Russia to fisherman around the world.

Ralph Kylloe on the other hand loved fishing and photography so he created the book, “Fishing Camps”, which was published by Gibbs Smith publisher. This allowed Ralph to travel across the country enjoying fishing camps as he photographed and wrote.

Steve Ambrose, another friend of ours, had family commitments at home so he set up a bass fishing business in Florida that served Americans, Germans, Canadian, Dutch and Belgians.  Later as his children grew, he used his client base to arrange fishing trips in Argentina.

Each of these people had provincial backgrounds and differed in age, situation and skills.  Their common link, the love of fishing, led each to a global micro business.  Each was able to blend a unique nature and set of skills to develop a global business that surrounded them with fun, like minded fishing souls.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international micro business that can be managed almost anywhere.  This program is unique because Merri and I are unique.  We started our global business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves… thus we create micro businesses that do not require large staffs.

We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home on our remote farms and employ only a few people to help.

You can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  You’ll learn how to create your own ads and when to use the internet… search engines… pay per click… classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth… even flea markets and roadside stands in some cases.

See how to build a PR list and social business network on the World Wide Web to gain thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I even share my most secret results on my marketing so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a product at $49 instead of $29.

Learn how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and received free trips all over the world.

Learn how we have made money over the Internet (specific details, specific experiences, hard earned knowledge over the last 13 years!)  With an inexpensive computer you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over – even if you are computer challenged.  Merri and I have certainly proven this.  We were one of the first to run a successful website and still rank high today even with millions of competitors.  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach.

Merri and I with our webmaster, David Cross, were leaders in beginning internet micros businesses and have sold millions over the web.  You gain ways to earn global income over the net from that experience as well.

At www.garyascott.com our emailed messages are regularly sent to over 20,000 readers.

You learn the income producing power of defined focus and immediate repetition to get good search engine rankings and sales.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of business ideas and case studies based on our 48 years of experience.

The course  describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a multi-million dollar international micro business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

Terry T., an attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.

Learn How to Gain Total Security.  Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option.  See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change never a victim of change.

Learn How to Perfect a Lifestyle.  Living as you choose is important because life is short.  Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

Learn How to Market your Product.  Learn truths that rule the market place.  Gain knowledge on subjects like… How to Make the Truth Exciting. Create your own Sales Story…  How to Deal With Cultural Differences…  How to Build Global Lists and Use International PR…  How to Spot the National Psyche and Quadruple Profits With Multimedia Marketing…  How to Choose Businesses as Pioneers or as Settlers.

Tom K., an engineer from Ohio, cashed in on this idea and wrote, “Basically, I learned the selling and marketing implications.  The course is absolutely worth the price!”

Learn  How to Obtain What You Need from the Net.  How to Use the Web to Reach your Market.  How to develop your site, target your market and start getting visits. The top ten Internet tips to use, the top ten traps to avoid, and many other lessons our Webmaster has used in his many years on the net. This system is so simple anyone can use it.

“Thank you for taking the mystery out of business and bringing it down to the ham and eggs level.” L – Chiropractor – Oklahoma”

Learn the Importance of Business Evolution.  It is vital to success and fulfillment that your business has balance and grows in harmony.

Rachel B, a housewife from Washington, enjoyed learning this fact and told us, “The idea of starting at the lowest cost level was terrific.”

Learn How to Set up Your Banking Structure.   Learn all you’ll need about the financial end: How to control inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results and stay on top of your business.  Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.

International Business Made EZ contains all these secrets and more.

One delegate, Ted T. a publisher from California said:

“Your course is outstanding! Just two hours of study alone were worth more than the price.”

While Kelly, a business woman from Atlanta, explained:

“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).”

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

What Do You Want?


What do you need?  Want AND need.  These are often two very different things.

Let’s learn how to have both!

micro-business-idea

For example, when I get going in the morning I often want to get on my John Deere tractor and head out to bush hog or clear a field or work in the garden.  Do I need to do so?  Not really.

I could make more money writing.

Yet last Sunday, I grabbed trout from the pond, made fillets for a Sunday lunch of Thai Trout.  We basted the fish with a paste made from cilantro, basil, lemon grass, spinach (all from the garden) then added the coconut butter and lemon juice.

This was served with delicious slices of just picked tomatoes from the garden and ripe grapes from our vineyard.  Late summer is a great time to be cooking and eating.

There is something more delicious and satisfying about home grown food.  The better flavors, along with some primal instincts of survival and modern good sense about fresh food’s value just mesh and combine.

Dining this way is not of an immediate economic benefit and leads to the question,  “Should we choose time or money?”

A recent New York Times article (1) asked this same question, “Given the choice between more time or more money, which would you pick?”

The article describes a research project, of 4,415 Americans published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.  They found sixty-four percent of those in the study chose money.

The study also found that the people who chose time were on average statistically happier and more satisfied with life than the people who chose money.

One interesting point gleaned from the research that time is related to increased happiness because the people looked at the choice differently.

The article says:  Those who chose time over money thought about the resources differently and had different intentions for how they would spend the time or money gained. Unlike those who chose money, who were more likely to be fixated on not having enough, people who chose time focused more on how they would spend it, planning to “spend” on wants rather than needs (e.g., cultivating a hobby versus completing chores at home) and on other people rather than themselves — two expenditures that have previously been linked to elevated levels of happiness.  In our pursuit of happiness, we are constantly faced with decisions both big and small that force us to pit time against money.  Of course, sometimes it’s not a choice at all:  We must earn that extra pay to make ends meet. But when it is a choice, the likelihood of choosing more time over more money — despite the widespread tendency to do the opposite — is a good sign you’ll enjoy the happiness you seek.

This is why since this site began in the 1990s, its mantra has been “Turn Your Passion into Profit”.

Why not combine what we want, with what we need, so our time brings what we want AND the money we need.  When what we want fills our needs, we can eliminate not having enough and enjoy fullness from the decisions we make about how we spend our time.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

Here are seven secrets that can help you earn as a writer and self publisher.  

gary scott

When you write, you can work anywhere.  Here I am working in my greenhouse.

Gain the freedom  to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.

These seven secrets are important because growing numbers of unknown writers have become famous writers and rich by self publishing over the internet.

Take for example Amanda Hocking.  After self publishing her first book at Amazon.com in the spring of 2010 she became one of the the best-selling e-authors. In the next year her book sales grossed approximately $2 million.

In 2011, St. Martin’s press paid Hocking more than $2 million for the world English rights of a four book series.  In 2013 she sold another series to St. Martin’s Press.

E.L. James is another such story.  She sold 250,000 copies of “50 Shades” via Createspace and Amazon.com before publishers noticed her and published the erotic romance trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed which sold over 70 million copies worldwide, setting the record as the fastest selling paperback of all time.

Hugh Howey is a third example.  He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks. Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon. This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

Hugh Howey

I know Hugh.  Sometimes we get together at my  farm and play chess (he beats me badly).

These writers are great inspirations.

Hugh’s success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.

Neither you or I are likely to have this type of success. The good news is… we do not need this type of success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing offers so many opportunities that one can have a life that most people only dream of as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like those of Hugh Howey or E.L James or Amanda Hocking rarely explain how many hours of writing each devoted before their self published book sales soared.  They were journeymen first… stars second.

The sevens secrets are the journeyman secrets… call them a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for more than 40 years, year in a year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably for you too.  First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed Merri and me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following our adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

That’s what self publishing can bring, profit, adventure and fulfillment, a great feeling of worth and wonder.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world and work with meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form and the seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.  Everything seems new… except the seven secrets.  Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love it due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted in life. Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets on writing to sell.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whip Lash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings.  I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

I’m passionate about investing, so I write and self publish ideas about investing.  Merri and I love Ecuador… so we wrote about Ecuador.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues?  You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place?  Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  To be immersed in our passion and get paid well for it.  That usually enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

In 1974,  I had a business that never got ahead. I was almost penniless, in debt and living from hand to mouth.  Then I discovered these seven secrets.  They helped me write and sell book after book and report after report.  Since then, our self publishing business has brought in millions.

One key to building a successful self publishing business is to use the Golden Rule of Simplicity and the 7Ps to create your publication.  The premise behind the Golden Rule is that if you have a passion… you have a problem.  Your problem is a desire to fill.

The Golden rule of writing uses a writer’s desire as a compass to direct the creation and sale of the publication.

Here is the Golden Rule of Simplicity:  Your Desires Are in Others.  Your Desires ID Markets.  Your Habits Reveals Pathways.  Your Emotions Create Stories.  Your Demands Create Publications.

This creative pathway works whether your publication is written by hand and sold on the street corner or published for Kindle at Amazon.com. These simple but basic fundamentals guide the creation of your works whether you use the most sophisticated equipment and algorithms  or are totally low tech.

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500. 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity called “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.”  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You can receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in a special “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for the written course and $299 for the recorded workshop.   I’ll send you both the course and the recorded workshop and my course “International Business Made EZ (also $299) all for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

These courses are not theoretical.  They describe, step-by-step, how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business and how we are running this self publishing business right now.   We use the 7Ps today just as we did four decades ago to create a strong annual income.

This correspondence course is for those who would like their own international self publishing micro business for fun and profit. If you want fun, freedom, extra income and fulfillment with your own full or part time writing or want to build your existing business, by writing to sell you can profit from this course.  The course can help who want their own business or who want to have a business together or a family business.  This is the perfect course for those who can no longer find employment, who are looking for ways to earn abroad and who wish to retire and supplement their income.

Whether you are retired, an investor, chiropractor, doctor, dentist, professional or already own your own business, this offers another way to make money, to turn your passion into profit. We guarantee that we have shared all we know to help you start and run your own international business.  Enjoy and live a life of following your Passion to Profit… through writing.

Here is a special offer.  We provide two emailed courses  “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product.

The Negative of Negative Interest


We can benefit from the fact that world leaders who make investment decisions ignore human nature.

Last Sunday, leaders of the G-20 nations, (which represents 85% of the world economy) opened their meeting in Hangzhou, China.  Their goal is to fix economic trends on growth, trade, investment and to stop sliding confidence about the benefits of globalization.

Chances are they’ll squabble and try to make their results sound good, but my thinking is that they will get it wrong.

The G-20 reaction to slow global economic growth to date has been reduced interest rates.  In many countries the rates are near (and even below) zero.  This has not helped much.

For example in the US, worker productivity has slumped in its longest slide since the late 1970s.   This could keep the Fed from raising rates.

Low interest rates are counter productive.  This is exactly the wrong thing to do.

The theory behind the G-20 low interest rates is that will stimulate spending.  The belief is that people will spend their hard earned income instead of saving.  People will be more likely to borrow to spend as well.

Right?

Actually the thinking is wrong.   t is human nature to set targets, to reach for goals and this reverses the actual results of low interest.

The Wall Street Journal article, “Are Negative Rates Backfiring? Here’s Some Early Evidence” (1) shows that
due to low interest rates people and businesses are increasing their savings, instead of their spending.  It is human nature to save more when interest rates fall. The thinking is “I need to save more than before to have enough to retire”.

According to the Wall Street Journal: Recent economic data showed consumers are saving more in Germany and Japan, and in Denmark, Switzerland and Sweden, three non-eurozone countries with negative rates, savings are at their highest since 1995, the year the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development started collecting data on those countries. Companies in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Japan also are holding on to more cash.

The nature of setting financial goals can also be seen in a recent study by Uber to determine how drivers decide how long to work (2).  The results show that it is human nature to work the shortest time when hourly rates are highest and work the longest time when hourly rates are lowest.   This seems crazy and ignores the rule, “To Make Hay While the Sun Shines”.   This seems illogical unless it is human nature to set targets and goals.  If drivers have a target income, they’ll quit sooner when high hourly rates cause the goal to be achieved sooner.  The goal setting also leaves drivers slogging on during times of low earnings until they reach their goals.

This is a poor way to become rich.  Maybe this is why there are more who are poor than those who have wealth.

How can we benefit from these thoughts?  If we do the opposite of human nature, we gain extra value in anything we do.

As investor, favor investments profit from slow economies.

In business, learn to reverse human nature.  Our International Business Made EZ course teaches how to run a micro business from anywhere.  We, for example, have clients all over the world but work from our homes in Smalltown USA homes.  The course teaches how to use collapsible overheads so we can reverse human nature; extend extra advertising when business is good, but pull back on marketing when business is down.

Live Well and Be Free

Here are 5 global income experiences and 7 business secrets that can help you live well and free anywhere.

I began my international business 50 years ago and have been creating and running international micro businesses since.

During that time my wife, Merri, and I have been able to live, work and earn all over the world… literally anywhere we wanted because of seven secrets we gained which we share here with you.  We have been blessed with global earning experiences that helped us make millions… but were also fun, such as with British Lordships.   See how one micro business helped us rub elbows with British Royalty below.

gary-scott-international-business

One of Merri’s businesses that worked with British Royalty was featured in Doonesbury.

Global Earning Experience #1:  Lepers.  Our micro businesses have been fulfilling.  Merri started her international business in her 20s (long before she knew me) importing Italian clocks to the USA.  This earned so much ($80,000 in the first year) that she created other micro businesses helping orphans in the Yucatan and Haitian lepers (at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital) produce crafts she sold for them in the USA.

Excellent income ($80,000 in the 1970s was a lot of cash)…  incredible contacts… working with Dr. Larimer and Gwen Mellon who created the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti… and enormous satisfaction.  Merri still cries over 40 years later when she tries to speak of the gratitude of the lepers and her time and life in Haiti.

Plus she gained lessons that allowed her to live and earn… in many places and many ways.

Then we got together.

Global Earning Experience #2:  Lords.  Another of Merri’s ideas (in the mid 1980s) was to broker British titles to wealthy Americans.  We made a ton from that… even gained 15 minutes of fame when Gary Trudeau learned about this business and immortalized it by having B.D. Zonker buy a title!

What fun… profitable, plus stimulating, meeting and working with the Blue Bloods of Britain… visiting their castles… invited to their events and affairs.

Before I get ahead of myself, may I ask you a question?

Would you like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three or even more places wherever and whenever you choose?  Would you be happier with more freedom, lack of debt, and a life of riches, adventure and travel?  Would you be glad to feel confident that you can discover interesting and fun business ideas again and again that not only bring in extra income but also help the poor and improve the environment?

If so then read on… because… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

gary-scott-international-business

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

A group of readers visiting our North Carolina home after learning how to gain freedom with a micro business.

You can also enjoy such a lifestyle because after years of search, I found business secrets that you can use and enjoy.

Global Earning Experience #3: Hospitality.  Here’s a hotel we owned and operated in Ecuador.  Once we sold this we joined the sharing economy and began offering rentals in our North Carolina cabins through AIRBNB and houses in Florida.  We became designated super hosts within months and are adding thousands of extra dollars to our income every month.  If you want to provide genuine care and hospitality you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

gary-scott-international-business

Having a variety of places to live is part of one of the secrets on how to earn more, have a better life with more fun, adventure and greater freedom.

Global Earning Experience #4:  Import-Export.   Here I am at our Florida house showing clients how to import.

gary-scott-international-business

I was wearing a hand tailored, made to order, high quality wool suit from Ecuador that could be imported into the US for as little as $135 .  Plus that Panama hat was made in Ecuador.  This is odd but true, all genuine Panama hats are made in Ecuador.  We import Ecuador roses year round as well, all from one of our tax deductible US home office.

Dozens-of-roses

The secrets we’ll share below are not about how to buy suits or flowers though.  The secrets show ways to make money (while helping others) marketing products and services wherever you are and much more…. globally.

Global Earning Experience #5:  Green Produce.   We have an orange grove and lake at our Florida home and

gary-scott-international-business

are among the first to test new organic ways to make citrus farming better for the environment and the consumer.  In North Carolina we cultivate Wild American Ginseng as well as aquafarm.

These are just a few of the business experiences that can help you have the freedom to earn globally.  They are shared in our emailed correspondence course, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

The course teaches a system based on seven secrets so powerful that it creates money for you regardless of where you are:  in town, out of the country, traveling or even in places as remote as we live.

These secrets have worked for us in real estate… titles… tours… agriculture… clothing… hospitality… alternative health…  spirituality… printing… publishing and art businesses for Merri and me all over the world.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

Merri and I have created a special program we call “Live Well and Free Anywhere” that makes it possible for you to enjoy extra income doing something you love.  You can gain full or part time and enjoy excellent profits as you have fun and do something good in the world.

My search stumbled on the fact that most millionaires make their money in business.  This discovery led to a study of rich businesses, ones that generate everlasting wealth.  Here are five of seven secrets we learned and have used in our  micro businesses:

Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each investment made needs to make huge returns.

Secret #2: They need to be greater than their owner’s time.  They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income.  You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might.  One surgeon explained it this way.  “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands.  Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops.   My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun.  Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money.  Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun.  The most important fact about making and keeping wealth is that those who were richest absolutely love what they were doing.  Money is of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

These secrets created a fantastic way to make money with my own international micro business doing what I love!

You too can have everlasting wealth by turning your passion into profit.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

You too can have the freedom to do what you love from any place you like, even operating (actually preferably) from your bedroom, dining room or den if you wish.

What do you love? Rare cars?  You can make a fortune creating a business around them.  Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?  Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?

Are you concerned with the environment or humanitarian problems, with crimes, war or poverty?  Would you like to help wipe these social problems out in the course of your business?

Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make all kinds of money in a global business related to golf?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income and live wherever you please in the process!

Whatever your passion you can learn how to earn by creating an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

Take fishing, for example.

I am no great aquafarmer, but the numbers and lifestyle work on a small scale.  We pay about $3.50 a pound to stock the fish, they double, triple, even quadruple in size and we sell them at a local butcher shoppe for a modest profit.   This is not a big deal, but does generate income, helps attract guests to stay in our rental cabins, puts some great trout dinners on our table and is a thoroughly enjoyable part of my daily labor.  I need this to counter balance sitting in front of a computer.

Over a couple of months the fish grow… a lot.

gary scott

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

Millions of people love fishing but don’t have a pond.  This does not mean they cannot be involved in fishing.  Here are just a few of many ways that others have profitably matched this passion with profit.

Two of my friends, John and Lou, grew up near me in the Oregon mountains.  They were outdoor adventure types and moved to Canada, where they homesteaded 1,200 acres on a trout-filled lake in mid British Columbia.  They built a fishing camp that attracts fisherman from around the world.

Duncan Kinderman on the other hand loved fishing and castles.  He bought a castle on the River Tay, a great Scottish salmon river, and offered time shares for fisherman from Britain, Europe and the US.

Another entrepreneur I know was from Montana.  His skills were in marketing so he sold fishing trips for fishing camps.  He attended rod and gun exhibitions, met owners of these camps and arranged to sell their fishing trips to the US, Argentina and even in Russia to fisherman around the world.

Ralph Kylloe on the other hand loved fishing and photography so he created the book, “Fishing Camps”, which was published by Gibbs Smith publisher. This allowed Ralph to travel across the country enjoying fishing camps as he photographed and wrote.

Steve Ambrose, another friend of ours, had family commitments at home so he set up a bass fishing business in Florida that served Americans, Germans, Canadian, Dutch and Belgians.  Later as his children grew, he used his client base to arrange fishing trips in Argentina.

Each of these people had provincial backgrounds and differed in age, situation and skills.  Their common link, the love of fishing, led each to a global micro business.  Each was able to blend a unique nature and set of skills to develop a global business that surrounded them with fun, like minded fishing souls.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international micro business that can be managed almost anywhere.  This program is unique because Merri and I are unique.  We started our global business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves… thus we create micro businesses that do not require large staffs.

We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home on our remote farms and employ only a few people to help.

You can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  You’ll learn how to create your own ads and when to use the internet… search engines… pay per click… classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth… even flea markets and roadside stands in some cases.

See how to build a PR list and social business network on the World Wide Web to gain thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I even share my most secret results on my marketing so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a product at $49 instead of $29.

Learn how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and received free trips all over the world.

Learn how we have made money over the Internet (specific details, specific experiences, hard earned knowledge over the last 13 years!)  With an inexpensive computer you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over – even if you are computer challenged.  Merri and I have certainly proven this.  We were one of the first to run a successful website and still rank high today even with millions of competitors.  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach.

Merri and I with our webmaster, David Cross, were leaders in beginning internet micros businesses and have sold millions over the web.  You gain ways to earn global income over the net from that experience as well.

At www.garyascott.com our emailed messages are regularly sent to over 20,000 readers.

You learn the income producing power of defined focus and immediate repetition to get good search engine rankings and sales.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of business ideas and case studies based on our 48 years of experience.

The course  describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a multi-million dollar international micro business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

Terry T., an attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.

Learn How to Gain Total Security.  Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option.  See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change never a victim of change.

Learn How to Perfect a Lifestyle.  Living as you choose is important because life is short.  Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

Learn How to Market your Product.  Learn truths that rule the market place.  Gain knowledge on subjects like… How to Make the Truth Exciting. Create your own Sales Story…  How to Deal With Cultural Differences…  How to Build Global Lists and Use International PR…  How to Spot the National Psyche and Quadruple Profits With Multimedia Marketing…  How to Choose Businesses as Pioneers or as Settlers.

Tom K., an engineer from Ohio, cashed in on this idea and wrote, “Basically, I learned the selling and marketing implications.  The course is absolutely worth the price!”

Learn  How to Obtain What You Need from the Net.  How to Use the Web to Reach your Market.  How to develop your site, target your market and start getting visits. The top ten Internet tips to use, the top ten traps to avoid, and many other lessons our Webmaster has used in his many years on the net. This system is so simple anyone can use it.

One delegate, Ted T. a publisher from California said:

“Your course is outstanding! Just two hours of study alone were worth more than the price.”

While Kelly, a business woman from Atlanta, explained:

“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).”

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

Does that sound fair enough?

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 money abroad.

In addition you receive any updates we make on any of these courses reports or recordings, free for a year.  Businesses usually need to evolve.  Merri and I continue to publish and have our independent businesses.  Some basics have remained for decades, but new strategies occur all the time throughout the year.  We’ll be sending along updates that share our most recent experiences as we learn and continue to grow our international micro business from Smalltown USA.
