Happy Oops… New Year


Here’s one way to get a good start in the new year.  Let my 2009 error make you a hero in 2010.

Sometimes… no matter how much experience… there are ways to screw up…  as I recently did.

See below how this mistake can not only bring extra cheer to you in 2010… but can help you gain wealth… better health… asset protection and make you a hero (or heroine as the case may be) as well.  Plus save you some cash as well!

First let me share how rosy our holiday has been… filled with Ecuador roses.   (Roses like this will be part of your heroship because in a minute you’ll see how to get an Ecuador rose bouquet absolutely free…. exactly at the most important time.)

We received 100 roses… we had ordered 50 and a kind reader sent us 50 more. Thank you Barry!  After sharing, we still had a number of wonderful bouquets around the house.

Some have become wilted by now.

Though they are not so great on the stems… they still look good on…

off the stalks on…

our dining room table.

The pinks really held up and remain in our kitchen.

These roses lasted nine days because we care for them. Instructions are included when you get Ecuador roses.

Other good ones have regrouped into a New Year’s bouquet standing in our living room.

ecuador-roses

Readers loved their Ecuador roses as well.

One wrote:  Just wanted to send a note about the roses. They are breathtaking. We cannot believe just how beautiful they are. Arrival was exactly on schedule, again they are perfect. We got them for our own house, which is an Assisted Living Facility for the Developmentally Disabled, six men with mental challenges live here with us. But the roses are so lovely we are allowing them to take some to their families. We want to thank you and yours for sharing with us such a lovely gift.  Makes us want to move even more.   You will definitely be getting more orders in the future from us AND our friends.

Now let me confess… my screw up.  Then we’ll share two great benefits (an Ecuador rose gift and more) that this error can bring to you.

Merri and I have been conducting seminars for over 30 years.

In that time we have learned many lessons.  For example…  one important lesson is… do not conduct a seminar anywhere near Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s Day.

So what did I do for 2010?

Before I admit everything, please let me mitigate this screw up by saying that scheduling these events is not the easiest task in the world.

One has to take into account US holidays, Canadian holidays…. Ecuadorian holidays… religious holidays of all sorts… what one’s competitors are doing, what our friends at Jyske Bank are doing plus in 2010 we have a Cotswold wedding to factor in  (our youngest daughter is to be married… yea!) as well.

Plus our business has really boomed.   By last October, when we normally schedule our seminars for the year ahead…  I was already being bombarded with requests for a 2010 schedule.

What more can I say.  I simply goofed under pressure and set up our first ever expanded Quantum Wealth International Business & Investing seminar for Feb. 11-14  in Mt. Dora, Florida.

In other words this course’s schedule is not near… not close… but right on Valentine’s Day.  I shudder!

Plus once our schedule is set and reservations come in…the dates are pretty well set in stone.  In the last 30 years or so I have missed a seminar only twice… once when my dad died and once last year when my mother had a serious illness. (She has recovered really nicely thank you very much).

If Merri, our kids and my mom (plus me of course) are breathing and are likely to continue to do so for a week… then our seminars are conducted!

So I realized: “I had to turn lemons into lemonade.”

I had to create a Valentine’s celebration as part of our February seminar.

I have done this in three ways so here is what I am going to do for you…. to make you a Valentine’s hero!

If you attend our course this February 11 to 14  and bring your partner! I’ll give you a bouquet of beautiful Ecuador roses to enjoy at the seminar.  If your spouse does not come, you can take the roses home… The course ends about noon so you can get back home on Valentine’s Day, and with some of the nicest roses you can imagine, to say “Happy Valentine’s Day”!

You’ll be a Valentine’s hero!

Yet there are two more great Valentine’s treats in the works… that will make you a Hero with a capital H.   We’ll see these other benefits in a moment.

First, let me describe the benefits (beyond being a Valentine HERO) of attending the seminar.

The seminar begins in Mt. Dora (about an hour from Orlando airport) Thursday February 11 with “Quantum Wealth” a one day workshop conducted before our regular Florida International Investing & Business Made EZ seminar.

This workshop helps you learn how to attain wealth continuously, effortlessly, in a fulfilling, enjoyable and positive way.  This workshop will help you stop worrying about money, bad governments, the falling dollar… inflation and all the future other horribles. Quantum Wealth reduces stress… improves health and helps income to flow from doing what you love.

We have been incorporating the ideas of Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades… but our  February 2010 Florida schedule made it possible to devote an entire day to this portion of the course.

International-Investments

Delegates enjoy coming to our home during the “Quantum Wealth – International Business & Investing Seminars” Here is a group at our North Carolina home.

The foundation of Quantum Wealth is to integrate:

* Logic with intuition.  The benefit is increased prosperity from better adaptation to change.

* Desire with action.  The benefit is more enjoyment and fulfillment from life.

* Good health with everlasting wealth. The benefit is reduction of stress, more energy and feeling better.

ecuador-savings

Join us here, this February at…

emp-terrorst-attack

our new Florida home…where we will enjoy a Valentine’s Day celebration.

Bringing delegates to our home for a home cooked meal is an example of a quantum wealth benefit.

This is fun.

Yet there is more.  This process helps delegates hear, see and feel the authentic reality of the ideas we share.  We do not spout ivory tower, unattainable theory.  Our seminars share what we do… how we live… and how we have developed our lifestyle. Our mission is to help you see what we do, so you can blend our lessons into a lifestyle that is better… happier… richer…easier for you.

I have never heard of other seminars offering this… an integration of what we speak about with our actual “at home” lifestyle.

Here are the 21 main points we cover in our one day Quantum Wealth Workshop.

#1: Quantum mechanics & frequency how they all connect.

#2: Three aspects of being – air – fire – water… how to balance and integrate them.

#3: Three ways to integrate brain waves and be in the zone… 60 cycle sound… L- theanine and meditation.

#4: The Andean – Indian Connection. How Ayurved and Andean relate.  Three fundamentals of longevity. Eat right, work hard and sleep well. Nutrition, exercise and purpose.

#5: How dis-ease develops and is stopped.

#6: Nutritional goals: Improve digestion, avoid dis-ease here first.

#7: How to use cleansings. Melon, pineapple, apples-grapes, vareshna, chelating, cinnamon-sweet pepper tea, steam and mists.

#8: Teas. How and when to use cedron, chamomile, lemon verbena, peppermint.

#9: Relaxers. How to use chamomile, valerian, lettuce and milk, hot water, vata press.

#10: Fire reducers. How to use peppermint tea, aloe, cream massage, frozen grapes.

#11: Water reducers. How to use cinnamon tea, paprika, cloves, ginger, ginger-black salt and lemon juice.

#12: The power of ritual & routine. When to eat, think, exercise.

#13: How to spot imbalances. Moods, physical signs. pulse testing.

#14: Quantum leap. How energy, colors, organs, glands work together and change every seven years.

#15: Shamanic exercises-yoga, llama walk, lizard, sun salute, crab and mouth release, ring chew, etc.

#16: Deeper Digestion.

#17: How to use the senses, taste, six flavors.

#18: How to use color.

#19: How to use sound.

#2o: How to use essential oils.

#21:  How to gain Super Thinking abilities, increased intelligence and super thinking into our Super Thinking + Spanish for many years but now have added this to our international investing and business seminars to create quantum wealth.

There are at least three simple ways to turn on this super thinking ability:  meditation, listening to 60 cycle music and taking Theanine.
These three steps integrate four categories of brainwaves, ranging from beta waves, the fastest of the four different brainwaves to alpha, theta and the final brainwave state, delta. Delta brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency.  Deep dreamless sleep takes you down to the lowest frequency.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely we gain unimaginable intellect.

Merri and I meditate twice every day to tap into this energy.

Plus we listen to 60 beat ten cycle classical music as we work. You could count the number of times we have missed our meditation routine in the last 20 years on one hand. This helps us enormously.

This type of music, along with deep breathing exercises for relaxation moves the mind into Alpha and deeper states as well.

Health benefits are gained as blood pressure can drop, heart rates slow and the mind becomes calmed… and you become smarter.  You tap into your higher intelligence and are more likely to have… and  enjoy… success.

A third avenue that helps enhance intelligence is Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide) one of the chemicals found in green tea. Theanine is used to reduce stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming agents. Scientific evidence shows that Theanine stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, making the user feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. It also helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan. As might be expected from a calming supplement, Theanine may be able to lower elevated blood pressure as well.

Our Quantum Wealth workshop looks at how to use super thinking to tap into deeper intelligence and what to do with this intelligence in business, investing and life so you improve the way you absorb, retain, recall information and think forever. The one day Quantum Wealth workshop prepares you to gain more from the international investing segment of the course that starts Friday February 12 when I join Thomas Fischer of Jyske Global Asset Management and our webmaster to review where to invest in 2010.

international-investment-seminar

Here is Thomas speaking at a previous seminar.

Quantum wealth shares our lifestyle.  International Business & Investing shares  how we create income through service and invest globally… plus shares our most valuable contacts and sources of knowledge.

Inflation makes it increasingly hard for almost everyone to keep up with the faster and faster pace of the rat race that captures most of the world…especially in economic downturns we have experienced for the past two years.

International investments and international business unlocks the restrictions of the rat race.

Economic stress grows…debt…rising cost of insurance, increased liability…inflation lurk everywhere. More crowded…more change…more push.  The falling dollar and economic hard times are shredding purchasing power.

This leave us few choices.

We can join the rat race or…find enjoyable ways to invest and earn.

The second day of the seminar (Friday Feb 12) looks first at multi currency investing.  Multi currency portfolios are usually slow moving, safe, conservative investments but they can be really profitable as well.

How safe?

The portfolios we create and review at our courses are composed of mutual funds and shares and are developed with the help of one of the world’s safest banks. The mutual funds and shares are held at that bank at all times.

Suppose we get specific.

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

Jyske Bank has over 23 billion euros in assets and also happens to be one of the leading currency traders in the world. The Danes have always been big currency traders because as a small naval country surrounded by England , Sweden , Finland , Russia , Germany , Norway and other countries…they have always had to deal in many currencies.

This historically gained expertise means that unlike most banks (that trade only eight hours a day) Jyske maintains a 24 hour global currency and commodity dealer service. Many other large banks use Jyske to handle their off hour currency positions. This means that Jyske is huge when it comes to multi currency activity. In fact their turnover reaches $50 billion dollars a day.

That’s safe.

Each course reviews global economics and updates ways to adapt and prosper in current conditions.

This portion of the course reviews what I am doing as multi currency investor myself.  For example during the 2008 downturn the recent Global Portfolio Currency Breakdown of my own personal portfolio looked like this.

Ecuador Real Estate 12.0%
Real Estate  31.0%
Euro 10.5%
Emerging market Currencies 10.0%
Danish kroner 9.9%
US$ 8.2%
British pound 6.0%
Swedish kroner 4.0%
NZ$ 3.7%
Australian $ 1.0%
Canadian $ 1.0%

By late 2009 that portfolio had shifted to

US $ Real Estate 50%
Non US Equities   3%
Emerging Bonds 11%
Bonds                   26%
Ecuador Real Estate  (for sale) 15%
US$ Short             -5%

my liquid portfolio was diversified in these currencies:

US$  -5.0%
CAD  7.0%
NZD  7.0%
AUD   7.0%
$ Bloc   16.0%

GBP   8.0%
DKK  10.0%
SEK   4.0%
EURO 39.0%
Euro bloc 61.0%

TRY 6.0%
HUF 7.0%
BRL 6.0%
EMCS 6.0%
Emg Curr  25.0%

Now I have made another big shift in my portfolio. At the seminar you’ll see my updated portfolio and why I have made these changes.

Most teachers do not actually share their own personal portfolios…  Just as Merri and I share our home and lifestyle, we share how we invest and explain why our portfolio is designed for our circumstances at any one time.

This provides you with two benefits. First, sharing why we adjust our investments helps you understand how to adjust yours.

Second, and most important, we invest real time. The data shared in our courses is about global investments you can make in the here and now. What you learn is not dated theory, but up to the minute fact! Many delegates come to course after course to update their portfolios.

We share our most valuable sources of information as well.

For example, Thomas Fischer Senior VP of Jyske’s Global Asset Management group will join us from Copenhagen to speak about where to place your current international investment allocation… along with four others… six of our friends and most valued sources if data… will be on hand to help you.

My personal investment adviser Anders Nielsen, also with Jyske, will be on hand to speak privately and answer any of your personal questions.  Our friend and tax attorney of more than 20 years, Joe Cox will share information at the seminar as well.

multi-currency-debt

Here I am with Anders at a previous global investment session.

Here are a few of the international investing and business subjects we review at this course.

#1: How 100 years of global economics can enhance your international investments and international business now. Learn how history reveals currency distortions that create international investment opportunities to borrow low and deposit high. For example right now you can borrow Japanese yen at below 3%, Swiss francs below 4% to invest in international investments, international business, international real estate or other international currencies that pay 5%, 6%, 7% and even more. In one case we’ll show why it is smart to borrow Swiss francs at 3.75% and invest in international Brazilian bonds that pay up to 10% or more!

Subjects in the international investments sessions include a review of global stock markets, international currencies and international interest rates and how they are shifting versus the greenback.

Another session looks at where to find the best value international investments globally right now, plus how to spot the hottest international investment trends before they become hot.

We also cover how to cash in on currency shifts by making international investments through the Multi-Currency Sandwich (Borrow Low-Deposit High) tactic. This is a perfect time for such international investments using diversification of currencies and taking advantage of the currency distortions that now plague investors around the world.

Currency experts from Jyske Bank (Thomas Fischer was a currency trader for many years and Jyske is one of the major currency trading banks in the world) will provide data at that course on this subject.

We’ll study international investment portfolios that offer the advantage of diversification, in several cases into nine currencies and nine different investments of which more than half have strong A to AAA ratings. We will review any changes made in the international investments portfolios we track and update what and how currencies and interest rates may move in the months ahead.

#2: We’ll look at international investments in emerging stock markets and emerging bond markets as well. 2007 was the seventh consecutive calendar year in which international investments in emerging markets outperformed developed markets. In 2007 the MSCI overall Emerging Markets benchmark was up 23.8 % in US dollars compared to the MSCI World Total Return Index being down 0.08 % in US dollars.   See why 2008 fared worse for emerging markets and how this creates more potential value.

In 2008 emerging markets fell faster and further than major markets… but once again in 2009 they led the global investment pack.  Anders Neilsen, my Jyske account manager, is one of Jyske’s bond experts and will be on hand to answer bond questions.

This February’s International invest sessions look at which blend of emerging and major markets may work best in 2010.

How profitable? Though Jyske Global Asset Managers have been extremely conservative this year, their managed portfolios have risen between 12.2% and 34.4% depending of the risk profile and the size of arrangement.

Those with more emerging markets in 2009 made even more.  The emerging markets index (in US dollars) was up 58.99% compared to 23.05% for the major market index. Over three years the index on emerging markets was up 37.88% versus 17.27% for the world index. The emerging market index was up 35.63% compared to the world’s index rise of 18.43% over five years.

Then emerging markets recorded their highest ever quarterly returns in the second quarter 2009, and posted strong gains for the third quarter, up 37.4% in three months, which ranked as the ninth best in equity market history.

You’ll learn why in 2009 we were investing in BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China).These 4 countries now generate approximately 27% of the world´s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  The average annual GDP growth of a BRIC nation was greater than 7% before the recession, as compared to approximately 2% for a G-7 nation.  In the first three quarters of 2009, the growth rate for the Chinese economy beat expectations with an outstanding 8.9%.   We’ll look at a special BRIC trading idea in our 2010 seminars.

#3: One session will especially focus on international investments in alternate energy and water. For example we’ll see why Hyflux (water cleaning membranes mainly in China ) rose from $1.50 to $5 in less than a year (and why it then fell dramatically). We’ll see why water shares are destined to grow. We’ll look at Vestas (windmills) shares also up from $50 to $106. Plus we’ll update our Green Portfolio. These shares are especially interesting now as they were especially depressed in the global meltdown.

This course goes far beyond just international investments in stocks, bonds and currencies. Other sessions cover:

#3: How to cash in on distortions in international real estate from Ecuador to Lithuania! We have gained much more than just profit and international business and international investing opportunity in our international real estate searches. We have gained incredible luxury, heart- warming sweetness, breath-taking beauty, much better health and pleasant surprises at every turn. Having lived, worked and played in Ecuador now for over a decade and a half, we’ll focus heavily there, but Ecuador real estate opportunity is just one small part.

For example we’ll see how to own Ecuador and Smalltown USA real estate for pleasure and profit.

The third session of the course looks at how have an international business for fun and profit.

Merri and our webmaster, David Cross join me in the third part of the seminar to look at how to have a small international internet business.

This portion of the seminar is highly practical and usable because it focuses on how to start really small…with minimal investments of time and capital.

Plus we show how to stay small (yet highly profitable) if desired. International business sessions include:

#1: How to have an International and Ecuador Import-Export Business anywhere.

We’ll especially zero in on Ecuador export business opportunities in carved wood, ceramics from Cuenca, carpets from Guano, silver and gold jewelry from Chordeleg, paintings and art, textiles from Otavalo, leathers from Cotacatchi and flowers from the Andes . For example you’ll learn how factories make bread dough jewelry that can be fashioned into high school and college mascots and purchased for pennies apiece (to be sold for dollars abroad). You see how the only native American owned mill produces coats, shirts, sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves in school colors of your choice (at really low prices). These can be sold for ten times their cost.

Here is what one delegate to our course wrote: “Warm greetings for you and Merri! I’ll be on that list of Millionaire women very soon, thanks to your wonderful guidance and tips. Thank you SO MUCH for the good work that you both do!!!”

Another shared this: “I love to travel, but since I’m not independently wealthy, I also need to make money. I made one of my dreams come true. I went to Ecuador . I attended Gary & Merri Scott’s import/export seminar, we visited artists, markets and villages. It was a treat to see the great variety of handmade items and meet the friendly artists. I started to see the possibilities. I filled my suitcases in no time. Most of those things were sold to coworkers and friends and covered the costs of my trip. Yeah!”

“I returned to Ecuador in October. I spent two weeks attending Spanish classes in Quito and the next two weeks shopping. Once home, I sold my goods at an international bazaar and again paid for my trip expenses.

“Do I plan to continue? You bet! I have ideas for other places to sell my goods and some great material for travel articles. I am learning more each trip and gaining experience and confidence and most importantly, I love doing it! Attending your workshop was the catalyst that gave me the courage to take the plunge. Thank you for enriching my life.”

#5: How to write and use publishing, seminars and how to use international internet opportunities to create your own global business from your home. You can run your global business from an office or at home! The internet makes this more possible than ever before.

In the course we use case studies of what we are doing now to show how to start small and grow on the internet! Imagine this. Merri and I have a tiny international business. Just two of us run this operation from a remote farm in the Blue Ridge, a small village in Ecuador and the Florida countryside. Yet our website is ranked among the top 20,000 sites in the USA.

By starting small and building with stepping stones and harmonious foci we now almost own several profit generating phrases at Google.

At the course, we look at how we use the Seven Ps (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key phrases. Then we use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P the Prospecting Path and Seventh P the Presentation we use at the internet.

This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous delegate just shared:

“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!

“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“

You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business globally!

#6: How to Cash in on Smalltown USA.

We’ll look at properties for sale in Central Florida. These areas have two unique features. First, they offer great real estate value. Second, they are great places to visit and live and do business.

Many readers combine a trip to our Florida or Blue Ridge courses with a chance to look around and inspect some property for sale.  Learn how demographics and population push (plus the water) and new Florida investments that have come to this area are likely to make this a hot spot in the decade ahead.  In Florida they often visit Orlando about an hour away… plus look at the great lake front properties available at really low prices.

We’ll introduce you to brokers we have used in Florida at the seminar.

#7: How to use the latest tax savings and offshore legal structures to gain the ultimate asset protection. Learn how to gain more than cash-freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self-sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction…by combining very small amounts of money with your time and energy in an international business.  Our friend and attorney for more than 20 years… Joe Cox will be on hand to speak and answer your questions also.

Previous course delegates have included business people, brokers and professionals, doctors, dentists, lawyers, retirees, couples wanting to get into international business together, insurance agents and marketers who want to enhance their existing business or build a second sources of income through international investments and international business.

Plus more.

We have invited more speakers than we have had in a decade to share this learning experience with you… at this seminar course… for ideas on health… green and quantum investing… asset protection and global business.

Ecuador Future


What’s Ecuador’s future… and that in the US and around the world?

On the eve of a new year, a new decade… in a new millennium, these seem fair questions to ask… what comes next?

Every decade has its boom.  In the 1970s it was gold.  The 1980s saw the Japanese stock market turn into a skyrocket. The 1990s was the decade of Wall Street and the 2000s watched oil rise through the roof.

Anyone who caught just one of these trends… and rode it… became rich.

During the 41 years I have been investing abroad, I have enjoyed capturing seven golden trends.

#1: 1970s Gold & Silver.

#2: 1970S Japan , Germany , Switzerland , England , Australia and Hong Kong .

#3: 1980s. The Tigers, Taiwan , Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea & Turkey .

#4: 1990s. South America (which led me to Ecuador ).

#5: 2000s. China , India and Eastern Europe .

#6: Invest in Real Estate Throughout.

#7: Bet Against the US Dollar Throughout.

So what will a big trend be through 2020? Here are three predictions.

One trend I believe in, will be that more people will move south to southern smalltown USA and from North America to Latin America.  One reason for this can be seen from winter shots at our North Carolina farm.

This is why I like what I see for Ecuador’s future.

A second trend I believe in will be more home based agriculture. As food prices rise and there are increased concerns about the environment… people will want more food independence and the health benefits of being more involved in their own personal food chain.

This is why Merri and I have added sustainable timber and home crafted woods to our business ventures.

Third, the biggest trend in 2010 to 2020 could be in water.

purchased our farm on Little Horse Creek.

Yet predictions are just fancy guess work. So here are three tips that can help you spot trends in the new decade.

First, know that there will always be things that none of us know.

Take for example the oil boom of the 20oos… based on ever diminishing oil resources.

Then the US discovers one of the largest oil reserves in the US… ever… in North Dakota.

A US government survey article says: 3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana’s Bakken Formation—25 Times More Than 1995 Estimate—

Reston, VA – North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.

A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency’s 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.

New geologic models applied to the Bakken Formation, advances in drilling and production technologies, and recent oil discoveries have resulted in these substantially larger technically recoverable oil volumes. About 105 million barrels of oil were produced from the Bakken Formation by the end of 2007.

The USGS Bakken study was undertaken as part of a nationwide project assessing domestic petroleum basins using standardized methodology and protocol as required by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 2000.

The Bakken Formation estimate is larger than all other current USGS oil assessments of the lower 48 states and is the largest “continuous” oil accumulation ever assessed by the USGS.  A “continuous” oil accumulation means that the oil resource is dispersed throughout a geologic formation rather than existing as discrete, localized occurrences. The next largest “continuous” oil accumulation in the U.S. is in the Austin Chalk of Texas and Louisiana, with an undiscovered estimate of 1.0 billions of barrels of technically recoverable oil.

“It is clear that the Bakken formation contains a significant amount of oil – the question is how much of that oil is recoverable using today’s technology?” said Senator Byron Dorgan, of North Dakota. “To get an answer to this important question, I requested that the U.S. Geological Survey complete this study, which will provide an up-to-date estimate on the amount of technically recoverable oil resources in the Bakken Shale formation.”

The USGS estimate of 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil has a mean value of 3.65 billion barrels. Scientists conducted detailed studies in stratigraphy and structural geology and the modeling of petroleum geochemistry. They also combined their findings with historical exploration and production analyses to determine the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil estimates.

This had a great impact on the real value of oil and the oil boom.

A second tip is to recognize that there are plenty of booms… not just one…  and we should never stop looking for them… for any reason.

We can see why in a recent New York Times article by By Deborah Sontaga entitled “At 94, She’s the Hot New Thing in Painting.”

Here is an excerpt.  After six decades of very private painting, Ms. Herrera sold her first artwork five years ago, at 89. Now, at a small ceremony in her honor, she was basking in the realization that her career had finally, undeniably, taken off. As cameras flashed, she extended long, Giacomettiesque fingers to accept an art foundation’s lifetime achievement award from the director of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

Her good friend, the painter Tony Bechara, raised a glass. “We have a saying in Puerto Rico,” he said. “The bus — la guagua — always comes for those who wait.”

And the Cuban-born Ms. Herrera, laughing gustily, responded, “Well, Tony, I’ve been at the bus stop for 94 years!”

This is why we always keeping looking for the next boom.

The article continues: Since that first sale in 2004, collectors have avidly pursued Ms. Herrera, and her radiantly ascetic paintings have entered the permanent collections of institutions like the Museum of Modern Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and the Tate Modern. Last year, MoMA included her in a pantheon of Latin American artists on exhibition. And this summer, during a retrospective show in England, The Observer of London called Ms. Herrera the discovery of the decade, asking, “How can we have missed these beautiful compositions?”

In a word, Ms. Herrera, a nonagenarian homebound painter with arthritis, is hot. In an era when the art world idolizes, and often richly rewards, the young and the new, she embodies a different, much rarer kind of success, that of the artist long overlooked by the market, and by history, who persevered because she had no choice.

“I do it because I have to do it; it’s a compulsion that also gives me pleasure,” she said of painting. “I never in my life had any idea of money and I thought fame was a very vulgar thing. So I just worked and waited. And at the end of my life, I’m getting a lot of recognition, to my amazement and my pleasure, actually.”

Julián Zugazagoitia, the director of El Museo del Barrio in East Harlem, called Ms. Herrera “a quiet warrior of her art.”

There you have it… the third tip is the most important tip of all… Turn you passion into profit.  If you are doing what you love… you do not mind the waiting… or the effort… because it’s the process of creating your own little boom… not the boom that creates the joy.

Ms. Herrera provides one more clue one how to spot the boom that works for you. Here the clue is explained in the article.

Painting in relative solitude since the late 1930s, with only the occasional exhibition, Ms. Herrera was sustained, she said, by the unflinching support of her husband of 61 years, Jesse Loewenthal. An English teacher at Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, Mr. Loewenthal was portrayed by the memoirist Frank McCourt, a colleague, as an old-world scholar in an “elegant, three-piece suit, the gold watch chain looping across his waistcoat front.”

Recognition for Ms. Herrera came a few years after her husband’s death, at 98, in 2000. “Everybody says Jesse must have orchestrated this from above,” Ms. Herrera said, shaking her head. “Yeah, right, Jesse on a cloud.” She added: “I worked really hard. Maybe it was me.”

The clue?  Live beyond logic and work hard.  We live in a chaotic… ever changing world where there is so much we cannot know.  Do what you love.  Serve and stay with it as you embrace the change.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

US government survey article on South Dakota oil

“At 94, She’s the Hot New Thing in Painting.”

Ecuador Currency


Ecuador’s currency is the US dollar.

When Merri and I first arrived in Ecuador the currency was the sucre and it took 3,000 sucre to buy one dollar.  About five years after we arrived the sucre had dropped to about 8,000 sucres to buy a US dollar.  Then a decade ago the Ecuadorian economy went into self destruct and the sucre collapsed all the way to 25,000 sucres per dollar.

ecuador-real-estate-for-sale

The dollar still goes a long way in Ecuador. You can still buy beach condos like this for under $24,000.

This created incredible real estate bargains.  I began buying Ecuador real estate which is one reason I can sell Ecuador real estate now at below the market and still make a decent profit.

ecuador-real-estate

Large fixer upper houses like this in the Andes can still sell for less than $29,000.

However getting out of the sucre into the greenback was in a way like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire…. because since then the US dollar has dropped a lot in value compared to other currencies such as the euro.  Excerpts from our latest Multi Currency portfolio report show this fact.  Here is what that message said:

Since we are beginning a new decade it makes sense to look back a decade at the past multi currency action.

A reader just sent this note:  Dear Gary, I am worried by the breaking news that the “Bolivarian Alliance” is creating its own currency.

The news says:   “Countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) agreed to introduce regional common currency, the SUCRE…”During the ALBA summit on Dec. 13 (In Cuba), nine member countries including Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Venezuela announced the introduction of new virtual currency in January 2010.”  Thanks.

These countries have been announcing this type of stuff for quite some time.

You can see a 2007 article I wrote about this at Ecuador Currency Opportunity.

Announcements by governments are easy.  Actions not so much so.  Getting all these countries to actually do something together is not such an easy task.  Not much has happened from the 2007 announcement and I do not expect much to happen from the 2009 announcement.

Most of the countries above face enormous social and economic challenges in the decade ahead.  Keeping their own currency stable will be hard enough.  Creating a new one easy… but maintaining it hard.  Getting all these nations to work together to create one currency seems pretty unlikely.

The European Union and euro whose nations enjoyed  much greater economic success and stronger political stability, than the nations above took decades to create. The euro was driven by a real fear… a repeat of WW I and WWII.   Yet the euro has taken many decades to form.

Should we expect quick action for a union by Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Venezuela? Remain watchful but do not expect anything too soon.

A better way to answer the US dollar dilemma  is to invest in the best value BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and speculate on the ups and downs of their value.

Here are excerpts from a recent Multi Currency Update I sent to our multi currency portfolio subscribers.

BRIC currencies make sense because these countries are still viewed as emerging markets… but they now are major economies.

Together, these four countries generate approximately 27% of the world´s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The BRIC economies are also growing faster than in the Western world.  The average annual GDP growth of a BRIC nation was greater than 7% before the recession, as compared to approximately 2% for a G-7 nation.

The future growth of the global economy depends largely on the BRIC economies continuing growth.

The simplest way to invest in BRIC economies is with a BRIC ETF like iShares MSCI BRIC Index Fund. This ETF tracks the MSCI BRIC Index and invests in about 260 different companies in these four countries.  Invest and leave the investment alone for long term growth.

Jyske Global Asset Management recommends BRIC allocation as below :

If you have a Low Risk profile                  : up to 5%
If you have a Medium Risk profile          : up to 10%
If you have a High Risk profile                : up to 15%

A more complicated but potentially more profitable approach is to weight your investments more heavily in the good value BRIC countries and sell shares in the BRICS with poor value.

Heavier speculation  could buy the good value BRICS and short the low value BRICS.

For example you can see below why right now may be a good time to sell investments in India and invest in China.

Learn how to read this entire update on why to sell these BRICS now as a Multi Currency subscriber.

A March 2009 report entitled “Ecuador Economic Worries” shows why the dollar’s fate is not so important to Ecuador when it says:

A number of readers have sent questions about Ecuador economic worries. One regular Ecuador economic worry I receive is that Ecuador will stop using the US dollar as its currency.

There is little doubt that Ecuador’s economy is in a mess.

Which economy is not?

We’ll look at this Ecuador economic worry in a moment, but to put this worry into perspective, may I share some other economic worries at the same time… plus post some photos from our friend, Dennis Goff… such as this shot from a boutique hotel in Manta, Ecuador where you can stay for $52 a night.

ecuador-economic-ideas

Ecuador has economic worries, yes, but are they worse than the economic worries in Europe or the US?   The photos show that while we worry we can be in paradise on a shoestring budget.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

La Mirage Cotacachi Garden Hotel & Spa


La Mirage is a garden hotel and spa listed as a Relais and Chateaux property…that is here in tiny Cotacachi!

La Mirage Garden Spa & Hotel is the best luxury hotel.  This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a luxury hotel anywhere in Ecuador.  In fact, La Mirage is a great place to stay if you are looking for luxury anywhere in the world!

The upcoming New Year celebrations reminded me of  last year’s events event in Cotacachi.

Here is a note from Patricia McCormick, a friend, a reader.  She spent New Year’s Eve at the La Mirage Cotacachi spa last year and sent this note:

cotacachi-spa

Happy New Year!  At this time of so much change, may you find peace and joy, and may you manifest all your desires in gratitude.

I went with four friends to La Mirage Relais & Chateaux.  We walked through a cow and sheep pasture to the front gate – just a stone’s throw from our homes in San Miguel.  Can you believe that this extraordinary resort is rated as one of the top ten resorts IN THE WORLD!!!  And it is located in our sleepy little leather village, Cotacachi, population about 6,000.

It is probably the most festive New Year’s Eve celebration in my life – the food was exquisite and there were 12 courses, including 3 sorbets – one being a delicious rosemary sorbet.  The room was decorated with festive abandon and we were entertained with a show of fireworks in the gardens outside our window.  Many balloons were released skyward, spewing sparkles and the grand finale was at midnight when a 3-story structure was lit, igniting a spectacular show of animated figures and breathtaking splurges of lights.  Several men worked all day, preparing the fireworks for the event.

The people in Ecuador love to parade and celebrate – there were many parades that day, the sounds of music and fireworks everywhere.  In fact, I could hear in the distance the people of the little village up the hill from my home partying with music and singing until about ten o’clock New Years’ Day! They are hard-working, gentle and happy people and I am happy to be here enjoying the beginning of a new year in this land of eternal springtime.  What a blessing!

cotacachi-spa

Happy New Year, Love and Light and Blessings to you, Patricia

In a moment, I’ll explain how Ecuador Living subscribers can save as they are immersed in ultra luxury at La Mirage Cotacachi’s premier boutique hotel plus receive special amenities and upgrades.

Merri and I purchased and run a small Cotacachi hotel… Meson de las Flores.  Yet I can say without shame that we are not the best hotel and spa in Cotacachi.  We are definitely second best, but not even close to best because…

five minutes away is La Mirage a Relais and Chateaux Spa.

I really cannot say enough about how lucky Cotacachi is to have La Mirage spa.

We offer a Cotacachi Spa week that starts with a La Mirage Cotacachi spa with a private, personal, hour and a half, Shamanic Purification Treatment. Enjoy the wisdom of our female Shamana who has inherited years of experience from her father a recognized Shaman in this region. Her purification room has been specially designed on indigenous healing principles to unify the body, mind and spirit. She blends relaxation techniques using the rose petal filled float tank and completes your healing process with an hour long aromatherapy spiritual massage.

cotacachi-hotel

La Mirage Spa, one of Cotacachi’s best kept secrets. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a hotel in Cotacachi…and if luxury is valued more than price.

Here is the entrance to the spa at La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa.

Cotacachi Hotel La Mirage

La Mirage offers  pure luxury…surprising for a spa in a village as small as Cotacachi.   This spa has such high standards that its prices create an incredible value.

The world is full of surprises but Cotacachi is a sleepy village and at the end of a bumpy, grass lined road sits Ecuador’s (and you may even say South America’s) most luxurious garden hotel and spa.

Gardens at Hotel La Mirage.

Cotacachi Hotel La Mirage

Hotel La Mirage is one of Ecuador’s oldest colonial haciendas, located in Cotacachi, ten minutes from the center of Otavalo. The hotel is set in luxuriant gardens full of tropical flowers and wildlife.

As hard as it is to imagine, there are three reasons why you can enjoy even more special treatment at La Mirage.

These three reasons are why you can enjoy this luxury spa hotel in Cotacachi and gain special benefits as an Ecuador Living subscriber.

First… we own an Ecuador hotel.  Hotels work together in Ecuador and offer special referrals to help one another.

Second, for the past 15 years, Merri and I have watched La Mirage become one of the most sacred and exquisite hotel spas we have ever experienced.  It is a vital part of our life in Ecuador. We have remained best friends with the owners over these years, and we are in love with this undeniably special garden hotel and spa.

The spa provides a special breakfast with fresh organic fruits and juices,  an afternoon of massages, resting in the garden, meditating in the most beautiful meditation room we know and afternoon teas.

cotacachi-hotel

This is almost a secret place. Few people can believe that an oasis of such high quality can exist in a tiny remote village high in the Andes. This is one of the most exquisite hotel spas in the world. This is one of the wonders of Ecuador for sure!

Cotacachi Hotel La Mirage

Third,  we have one of, if not, the largest, Ecuador oriented websites that reaches over 18,000 (and growing) readers every day.   We provide La Mirage with a lot of attention. We do not ask for a cent for it… just that they do something special for the subscribers who support us.  So when you subscribe to Ecuador Living you gain extra benefits at La Mirage.

La Mirage hotel grounds in Cotacachi.

Cotacachi Hotel La Mirage

La Mirage offers, the highest, most refined, most elegant and delightful experience with the spa and 5 Star restaurant, organic gardens, horses, alpacas, llamas, small river, tennis courts and exquisite beauty.

There are fifteen luxury rooms at La Mirage and a world class spa with lush private gardens and a spa that is pure luxury.

cotacachi-spa

Whether you are dipping into a jacuzzi or enjoying a cozy eucalyptus fire in one of the many beautifully decorated rooms, you will find fresh roses everywhere. No detail is overlooked.   Guests range from Hollywood stars and US Senators to royalty.  The Queen of Spain chose La Mirage during her stay in Ecuador.

There are also great culinary delights  in the La Mirage kitchen that you can now know and enjoy.

We take most course delegates to visit La Mirage spa at least once during a course and enjoy the great Ecuador cooking there.  The food is incredible.

The chefs are world class, and presentation is at the top of their list. Appetizers are served in individual wooden music boxes, soup is poured hot into your bowl when served and each plate is a work of art. Here I am with delegates at La Mirage.

Here is the risotto starter up close.

The homemade, organic rose ice-cream dessert is out of this world.  Each tiny ball of rose ice-cream hides in the center of a blossom of sugared rose petals.

Everything at La Mirage is exquisite.

If you plan to come to Cotacachi to attend one of our courses or on your own and if you would like to experience this ultimate in luxury, care and beauty, consider La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa.

We have arranged with La Mirage a special reduced rate for our Ecuador Living subscribers, including a sumptuous breakfast in the glass aviary and gourmet dinner in their glorious dining room…. a complimentary bottle of champagne and a room upgrade when possible.

If you are an Ecuador Living subscriber… contact Bonnie at the Ecuador Living hotline and she’ll provide full details.

Learn how to subscribe to Ecuador Living here.

Our courses and spa retreats and monthly stays are filling up El Meson to the brim…and we are extremely proud to be able to offer you this exquisite alternative.

If you plan to come to Cotacachi to attend one of our courses or on your own and if you would like to experience this ultimate in luxury, care and beauty, consider La Mirage.

We, of course, welcome you to Meson de las Flores. Our rooms start at $59 (plus Ecuadorian 22% service and tax) and you will find us a delight. However if you would enjoy gourmet meals and a room at a world class spa all for less than a similar meal would cost in the West, consider upgrading to La Mirage!

See more about La Mirage below.

Visit Cotacachi, La Mirage and attend our  Ecuador Export Tour

Hemingway’s Secret to Better Writing Saves You Up to $899

Our Writer’s Camps specialize in how to write to sell through self publishing.  This course goes way beyond logic and looks at how to think, write, earn with greater wisdom.

We help you learn ways to go the extra mile.

Was Ernest Hemingway’s secret to better writing in English or Spanish?  

hemingway

‪Hemingway with Friends at La Florida (“Floridita”), Havana, Cuba.‬

To get a Nobel Prize in literature… you have to be willing to go the extra mile (1).   In Hemingway’s case perhaps he went further… 104.91 miles to be exact from Key West to Havana.   There may have been many reasons why Hemingway liked Cuba but he already had access to them in Key West.  Why go the extra 104.91 miles to Cuba?

Hemmingway speaking spanish

See Ernest Hemingway speaking Spanish below.

Perhaps Ernest Hemingway knew that speaking a second language makes you smarter.  Perhaps he realized that he could think and write better in English when one learns Spanish.   In 1939 he moved to Cuba and wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which  became a Book-of-the-Month Club choice.  The book sold half a million copies almost instantly, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and cemented Hemingway’s reputation as one of the great writers in the English language… at a time when he was speaking two languages.

You too can be be smarter, write better and incidentally… and save up to $899 in the process.

You might ask… “What the heck does Spanish have to do with writing and self publishing?”

Well… to start, being smarter means you write better and the fact is, you do gain greater intellect with Super Thinking.   Super Thinking tactics integrate brain waves so absorption, retention and recollection of  information improve… a lot.   Most important of all, Super Thinking helps you synthesize what you learn so you can connect dots and use the knowledge you gain to achieve your goals.

In short, Super Thinking makes you smarter.. a lot!

Super Thinking is not a gimmick nor a trick.At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system.  She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.  With her modified system, you discover how to think more powerfully in just three days…and experience the wonders of superlearning.

When I figured this out, my first thought was… “Why not help readers learn writing  AND Spanish?”  There and then was a two for one deal.

Enroll for our summer Writer’s Camp and you gain a full scholarship to one of our Super Thinking + Spanish course or vice versa.  You save $699 (single) to $899 (couple).

Still you ask… “Why Spanish for writing and self publishing?”

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language.  Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.  Speaking Spanish can be helpful in innumerable ways just from this fact.

There is more.  Learning a second language makes you smarter and healthier.

Image from Telegraph article “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism”. (2)

The Telegraph article (linked below) entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism says (bolds are mine):  Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English, says Anne Merritt.

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.

You can read the entire article at the link below but to sum it up it shows seven ways that learning a second language improves your intellect and health:

* You build multitasking skills

* You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia

* Your memory improves

* You become more perceptive

* You become smarter

* Your decision-making skills improve

* You improve your English

A better command of English… used by a smarter, more perceptive person who can remember details and multi task, creates a better writer.

With this. I rest Hemingway’s case.

Learn the power of Super Thinking.  Gain the seven benefits of being bilingual.  Attend our Super Thinking + Spanish course and Writer’s Camp. Save up to $899.

We have three Writer’s Camps and two Spanish courses scheduled for the year ahead. Enroll within the next two weeks for any one of the Writer’s Camps and you gain a full scholarship to the Spanish course of your choice.  You save $699 (single) to $899 (couple).

Ecuador Birding Business


Ecuador Birding Business

Ecuador birding is big business that can create a business opportunity for you… maybe even more.

Yesterday’s message looked at how birds reflect patterns of nature.  Perhaps this is why bird watching is such a popular sport.

Merri and I love watching Ecuador’s birds on the beach, the…

ecuador-birding

Frigate Birds as they swarm and…

ecuador-birding

pelicans sliding silently on a coastal cushion of air.

ecuador-birding

In the Andes the hummingbirds… flit into…

ecuador-birding

our hotel’s courtyard.

ecuador-birding

Ecuador’s Amazon has an abundant variety  of bird life as well.

ecuador-birding

Here is a reader’s question about birding in Ecuador… thoughts on where to see them… and how to profit from Ecuador birds.

The reader wrote: Does Cuenca have enough birds and rain forest for an avid nature lover?  I would want to experience these daily not just on weekends or occasionally?

My reply: Cuenca has some great birding nearby but is definitely not a rain forest.

Cuenca is more dry than wet.  The rain forests are a bit away.  In the nearby Cajas National park, there are more than 150 species of birds. There is a link on where to check for bird watching routes in Cajas.

There are even better places to watch birds. The closest is a cloud forest only an hour and a half from Quito in Mindo.

ecuador-birding

You can watch the clouds walk across the tree tops in the Mindo cloud forest.

Due to its critically important role in the conservation of numerous rare and endemic species, Mindo was designated South America’s first Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International in 1997. Mindo is an area of historic ornithological studies, where early collectors and ornithologists discovered or collected many species.

Mindo lies within the Chocó Endemic Bird Area (EBA) and Chocó Biogeographic Region, which is considered one of the world’s richest biogeographic areas. This area supports the largest number of restricted-range birds of any EBA in the Americas, over 50 species being endemic to the area.
ecuador-birds

The Cock of the Rock often observed in Mindo and Intag.

Mindo is also home to the greatest number of endemic montane birds of any place in the world (Birds of Ecuador, Ridgley and Greenfield).
2000-2005 Christmas Bird Count (CBC) – sponsored by the Audubon Society.  Mindo has been among the top three highest bird counts in the world for the last six  years. This is with over 2,000 locations participating. Each location is a 25 kilometer radius, and the count lasts for 24 hours. Mindo had the highest count in the year 2000 with 350 bird species recorded, and in past years has exceeded the 400 bird species mark.

This creates bird watching business opportunity.

Ecuador also offers many exciting export ideas based around bird life.

Our Ecuador export course helps you learn how to take unusual products, make them unique and then adapt them to a niche market.

Take for example this excellent botanical artist, Monteros.

We’ll see art from Montero.

P1030264

Artist Montero produces exquisite watercolors for as little as $25 such as those below

P1030283 P1030284

He did this wonderful piece for us. This painting is great art and is exportable as is…but…to my way of thinking this is just the beginning.

I took this piece and made it my business card!

ecuador-business-idea

My US address and number are on the reverse side. The art, color separations, printing and paper (recycled velum) are superb. These are the nicest business cards I have ever had.

Now comes the adaptation that makes this product utterly unique. One of our guests here is a globally known naturalist and birding guide. My suggestion is that he creates a program for his bird watching clients.

Monteros paints their favorite bird. The water color (or in oil) is theirs to hang in their office or home and then they also get business cards with the same unique picture.

We are seeing more and more success by delegates from our import export course.

Former delegate Bonnie Keogh built a successful Ecuador export business and now conducts our Ecuador export tours reports:

ecuador-exports-bonnie

Here is Bonnie with Consuelo at our hotel Meson de las Flores where our Ecuador export tour delegates stay.

Ecuador exports are a fun way to gain a second income, early retirement or build a substantial business. There is great opportunity and this type of business really helps the poor here as well.

It’s not often the case that a quick 1.5 hour drive takes you from a bustling metropolis to a virtually unspoiled nature reserve. Yet, that’s what you get in Ecuador. The country has 40 nationally protected areas, covering a staggering 12.2 million acres or 18.81% of Ecuador’s landmass.  And these protected areas do not even take into consideration the country’s numerous protected forests, known locally as “bosques protectores”. These represent natural reserve areas that are subject to a limited economic activity but whose primary purpose is the preservation of biodiversity and sources of natural springs and lakes. In a world where unspoiled nature is getting scarcer by the day, guess what is proving to be the biggest attraction of Ecuador’s tourism and expat sectors?

The other big attraction of Ecuador is the comparatively low prices.  Unlike in other countries, where properties in beautiful locations are already trading at a scarcity premium, Ecuador actually offers eco-properties at bargain prices.

Natural beauty and all that at bargain prices – how could an investor possibly go wrong with such a combination?

And because there is such a staggering array of nature reserves in Ecuador, you still have a chance to find one or the other truly undiscovered gem among the country’s protected regions. The kind of area that a few years down the road, people will say, “Oh, had I only known at the time so that I could have gotten in while it was still a bargain-priced ground floor opportunity.”

Learn more about our Ecuador export tour here.

Everyone has heard of the Galapagos Islands, the place that is now visited by 170,000 visitors per year.  Still, few people have heard of Mindo yet. Mindo is currently visited by just 20,000 foreign tourists per year. Type it into Google and you’ll notice that this place is only just being discovered. Our bet is that, the visitor numbers of Mindo will catch up with Galapagos.

Why?

First the cost difference is phenomenal.  Second, Mindo is a nature reserve wonderland that has few equals.

If anyone has ever even heard of the place, it’s usually because of the unusually high diversity among birds and plants. There are…

-    430 species of birds (more than on the entire North American continent; put another way, Mindo makes up 0.002% of the world’s land mass but 10% of the world’s bird species are found there)

-    370 species of orchids (out of the 4,000 species found in Ecuador, which makes it the country with the world’s highest number of orchid species)

-    300 species of butterflies

Mindo is actually a town, a river and an area. It’s 48 miles due northwest of Quito. The area is at 4,200 feet above sea level, which makes it the mid-point elevation between the highland Quito area and the coast.

Mindo is synonymous to harmony in nature.  It is a place for deep relaxation and provides an escape opportunity from modern-day life’s stress.  Yet, there is ample mobile phone coverage, Internet access and opportunities for community services.

Holidaymakers and tourist industry investors alike have recently started to realize what potential this area holds. The scenery appeals to photographers and explorers for its outstanding panoramic views. Eco-tourism in general is booming, and bird-watching in particular is one of the world’s fastest growing recreational activities. Many birdwatchers come from a wealthy demographic, i.e. it’s not backpackers who are pursuing this sport but well-off people in their 40s, 50s and 60s (or older).

Mindo is also a perfect area for anyone wanting to keep fit and entertained: Horseback riding, mountain biking, tubing and rafting can all be organized locally, just as much as you can go hiking, fishing and swimming. All this is set in a valley that is a subtropical cloud-forest and which is ideally situated between the upper temperate zone and the lower humid tropical forests. Mindo is made for tourism development.
It is ideally suited to invite your kids and grand-children on an adventure-filled excursion into the safe rainforests of Mindo, with activities such as hiking along trails, jumping off small waterfalls, river walking along the many streams, tubing down the major waterways, or just taking in the natural surroundings.

Best of all, it’s the natural playground of Quito. Most of the drive to Mindo is a scenic route on a well-maintained road. The government is continuously improving the area’s infrastructure, such as installing a new electricity distribution grid, improving the town’s police station and providing it with a new patrol car and motorcycles and by setting up an organic waste management facility. Private investors have started to move in. A number of weekend-home developments have sprung up, and new hotels and restaurants have opened. Nevertheless, Mindo is still a charmingly tiny and unspoiled village.

Mindo offers you all of the following:

- Owning a property set within pristine nature.

- A retirement home where you can afford staff, with first world health facilities just 90 minutes drive away in Quito.

- The ideal place in which to learn Spanish (or, where to give English classes to local children if you like volunteering work).

- Clean air, fresh water, fresh organic fruits and a de facto detox lifestyle without even having to pay a premium for it (costs of living are extremely low actually).

- Just about any outdoor sport you can imagine.

- Being in a bird-watching paradise year-round.

- Benefiting from Ecuador being an up-and-coming tourism and retirement haven (and from its new international airport in Quito).

- A base from where to explore Ecuador and South America

- And countless more aspects, which are best explored by doing a little tour of the area…

Yet, despite all its attractions, Mindo is still all a ground-floor opportunity. A yearly total of 20,000 foreign tourists is hardly noticeable. Investing in Mindo is a bit like investing on the French Riviera in the 1950s, buying a historic apartment in Venice in the 1970s, or a villa in Costa Rica in the 1980s. The attractions and the beauty are already apparent, but it has not yet become fashionable to have a property there and few people have heard of it.

Needless to say, this is the time to get in on the action.

This is why we included Mindo in our Quito/Mindo real estate tour.  As part of our Quito real estate tour, we’ll take you where Quiteños increasingly go to have a nice time with their family when they fancy a weekend break.

Mindo will become more accessible when the new airport in Quito opens in 2010.   This is why Mindo is likely to become one of the iconic cornerstones of the upcoming marketing campaigns of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Tourism. With its world class appeal, Mindo is bound to become better known.

What this means for property investors?

The formula is quite simple:

-    With growing local and international tourism, there is an opportunity to create rental properties for extra income.

-    Because of the purchasing power of nearby Quito, holiday homes in the Mindo area are set to increase in value over the years to come.

-    Anyone fancying the idea of living in unspoiled nature but with the hustle and bustle of a proper city nearby, should check out the option to actually live in the Mindo area.

The two areas are worlds apart in one way, but they are connected in many other ways. That is why we have combined a tour of Quito with a detour to Mindo.

Ecuador is a small country, and personal contacts go a long way.  That’s where Carlos Tobar comes in, the man who will be guiding the entire Quito/Mindo Real Estate Tour.

Carlos is assembling a preview list of available properties (including one special deal that has not been offered before). We’ll pass the list on to you as soon as it’s ready. You now know what’s special about Mindo in general. And you’ll soon get a much clearer idea about the kind of property deals available in this area.

Join us all year long… seminars and tours in North Carolina Florida and Ecuador.   Gain hge discounts by attending multiple seminars tours.

We just added four South coast Ecuador tours that can help you gain extra savings with a multi tour pack.

These extra tours create a dilemma for me. See how below.

Here are our multi tour adventure discounts.

Two Pack… 2 seminar courses & tours $998 Couple  $1,349 Save $149 on couple

Three Pack… 3 seminar courses & tours   $1399 Couple  $1,899 Save $98 single or $348 on a couple or more

Four Pack… 4 seminar courses & tours   $1,699 Couple $2,299 Save $98 single or $697 on a couple or more

Five Pack… 5 seminar courses & tours  $1,999 Couple $2,699 Save $496 single or $1,046 on a couple or more

Six Pack… 6 seminars courses & tours  $2,199 Couple $3,099 Save $795 single or $1,395 on a couple or more

These four new south coast tours and our six pack tour price create a bit of a crisis here.

As you can see above a six pack costs $3,099.  This is already a really low price for a tour that last up to 21 days (under $150 a day).

But as you will see below, our International Club membership which allows you and a guest to attend up to 56 courses and tours in 2010  (fees would be $40,947 for all these courses individually) is only $2,999.

Which would you choose… 6 courses and tours for $3,099 or those same 6 courses and tours plus 50 more for $2,999?

“Duh,” I said when this was pointed out to me.

So our only solution is to raise the International Club membership to $3,500… still a terrific deal… but $501 more than before.

Save $37,457…plus $501.  I will not raise the International club fee until January 2010. Enroll in the International Club now at the original fee of $2,999.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

Giving & Receiving an Ecuador Lesson


Merri and I have learned a lot from giving and receiving in Ecuador…. about the deepest patterns of nature and how they can bring happiness and success.

There seems to be an equilibrium at the Ecuador… something that comes from being at the center of the world… centers everything.  So sometimes simple but profound objects in life are easier to see.

Today I was thinking about Boxing Day, celebrated as a public holiday in Britain and most Commonwealth countries, the day after Christmas… a day for the poor to receive gifts.

This idea of receiving is an important part of nature’s reality that many investors miss.

When we learn to give, we also need to learn how to receive.

Near our Florida home is a small lake. I was thinking about these wonderful patterns of nature as I drove by at dawn enveloped in the last moments of this holiday’s cheer and saw…  the egrets resting quietly, in…

ecuador-receiving

beauty… a painting in nature’s grand palate.

ecuador-receiving

Their arrangement was so meaningful…  notes on the sheet music of life’s melody… a harmony that reflects the composition of our existence,  the repeated beats on the staff of our lives… an ultimate symphony if we’ll stop to listen.

Receiving…the Boxing Day celebration began in Victorian England, when on the day after Christmas, the rich would box gifts and give them to the poor.  The Christmas carol, “Good King Wenceslas”, is a song about giving these gifts such as flesh, wine, and pine logs.

The British have it right for if Christmas is a day of giving… as the poor did on Christmas… as they toiled to serve,  then Boxing Day is the day to receive.

Every day can only be a precious gift if we are able to receive it as we also give.

Investors miss this point all too often. They enter investments with no exit plan. They invest without having any idea of the gains they expect.

This is not the way the universe works. Nature’s infinite abundance is our birthright only when we are ready to receive its abundance.

Today why not take stock of what you are ready, willing and able to receive?

Yesterday we celebrated the spirit of giving.  Complete the cycle today and raise your expectations. Start thinking about what you really can receive. Then you’ll be headed for a balanced and wonderful new year ahead.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

Cotacachi House for Sale


Here is a page I recently sent our Ecuador Living subscribers about a Cotacachi house I am selling.

The price is $69,000. Ecuador Living subscribers can receive a 2% discount or a free International Club membership ($3,500 value).

Learn how to subscribe to Ecuador Living here.

Cotacachi sits between two stunning volcanoes…Mt. Imabura

Cotacachi-Imbabura

and Mt. Cotacachi.

Cotacachi-Cotacachi

The area is largely dependent on agriculture which means the food is good, abundant and absolutely fresh.

There is no night life, but after a day mountain sunshine and fresh air the nighttime is for sleeping.

The house below in Cotacachi is currently rented at $550 a month.

This is a rustic casita built two years ago.

Here is the cozy living view seen from the kitchen and …

the  dining area.

Ecuador-house-for-sale

The house is fully furnished though the dining room is different now and the art is not included.

Here is…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

the…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

kitchen which is…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

about a fifth of the house.

Cotacachi-Rental-real-estate-kitchen

The house is about 1,000 square feet and was meant to be a two bedroom, two bathroom house.

We however had the builder leave out one wall that would have created the second bedroom… making more of an open…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

floor plan so there is a larger dining area and…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

a place to play chess, read, paint or lounge.

That wall can easily be put in for anyone wanting two specific bedrooms.  Renters have used a wooden screen to create a second sleeping area…. as the open plan gives a really bright spacious feel.

There is one bedroom.

Cotacachi-Property-Rental-Bedrooms

That’s a king size bed… the best mattress in Cotacachi (included).   Plus there are plenty of hardwood closets.

However there are still…

Cotacachi-real estate-Rental-bathrooms

two bathrooms. One has…

Ecuador-house-for-sale

a shower, the other bathroom has a bathtub.

This house feels like a rustic, country chalet with peaceful, quiet views from the…

garden deck chairs in the outdoor lounging place…facing the sunrise.

Ecuador-house-for-sale

This is a view from the front deck.  This is a great place to hear the birds sing at dawn.

The house is light and bright. This is the view from the front room window.

You really feel like you are in the country but the house is only seven minutes walk to Meson de las Flores. This is the center of the village.

Ecuador-house-for-sale

The house is unpainted adobe… the best type of Andean construction as it breathes well.

Ecuador-house-for-sale

The house is part of the Primavera I Association and is totally walled. Here is the wall.

Condo fees including security, water, insurance, etc are about $90 month. Taxes are currently $38 a year though we expect taxes to rise a bit.

into the…

We invite you to visit Ecuador and see this house.  If you are interested in Ecuador Living or property ownership…we invite you to join our real estate tours and look before you buy to make sure you love Ecuador as we do… and that you like the village of Cotacachi and… this Cotacachi house for sale.

Until next message, may all your living anywhere and everywhere be good.

Attend our January Imbabura real estate tour and see this house…plus many other great real estate values.

Attend our seminars and tours in Florida and Ecuador. See the best Ecuador property for you.  Find the best real estate offers.  Know more of Ecuador. To help you experience a bigger adventure in this wonderful nation, to broaden your horizons, to expand your awareness of all Ecuador offers, we are providing deep discounts in 2010 for those who sign up for multiple tours.

We just added four South coast Ecuador tours that can help you gain extra savings with a multi tour pack.

These extra tours create a dilemma for me. See how below.

Two Pack… 2 seminar courses & tours $998 Couple  $1,349 Save $149 on couple

Three Pack… 3 seminar courses & tours   $1399 Couple  $1,899 Save $98 single or $348 on a couple or more

Four Pack… 4 seminar courses & tours   $1,699 Couple $2,299 Save $98 single or $697 on a couple or more

Five Pack… 5 seminar courses & tours  $1,999 Couple $2,699 Save $496 single or $1,046 on a couple or more

Six Pack… 6 seminars courses & tours  $2,199 Couple $3,099 Save $795 single or $1,395 on a couple or more

These four new south coast tours and our six pack tour price create a bit of a crisis here.

As you can see above a six pack costs $3,099.  This is already a really low price for a tour that last up to 21 days (under $150 a day).

But as you will see below, our International Club membership which allows you and a guest to attend up to 56 courses and tours in 2010  (fees would be $40,947 for all these courses individually) is only $2,999.

Which would you choose… 6 courses and tours for $3,099 or those same 6 courses and tours plus 50 more for $2,999?

“Duh,” I said when this was pointed out to me.

So our only solution is to raise the International Club membership to $3,500… still a terrific deal… but $501 more than before.

Save $37,457…plus $501.  I will not raise the International club fee until January 2010. Enroll in the International Club now at the original fee of $2,999.

International Club 2010

Attend our 56 investment, business, Spanish, real estate and export, courses and tours in 2010 with one small enrollment fee.

Ecuador Imports 2


Ecuador Imports Part 2

A major theme in our messages is that we’ll be facing the loss of currency purchasing power.  Opportunities created by this problem lay in equities, real estate, commodities and your own small business.  Your own business involved in real estate and commodities could make extra sense.

Ecuador-imports

Our orange groves are like producers of green gold… that fight inflation.  See below an idea that ties into Ecuador imports.

Yesterday’s message Ecuador Imports looked at new ideas on nonfood plants that produce biofuels.

There is one more new idea that ties into this idea… Ted’s Stuff.

This is a great time to bring up this product because it was at Christmas eleven or twelve years ago that I first wrote about Ted’s Stuff.

Ted Tidwell has been a friend and reader for decades and he gave me a bottle of this organic, biodegradable degreaser called “1st enviro safety organic colloidal degreaser.” (This is why I call it Ted’s Stuff!)

I had been trimming a large outdoor live tree with lights and my hands were covered with pitch.  I thought, “Let’s try Ted’s Stuff.”  The pitch melted away and I was hooked!

We started using it as our hand soap because of the Health scam that most soap makers use to trick the public.

We started using Ted’s Stuff on everything because though it is totally organic and readily biodegradable, it is a potent germ killer.

I have a copy of a lab report from Davis Analytical Laboratories in Sarasota, Florida which shows that two to three drops of Ted’s stuff has the same effect as one drop of clorox.  We began using it wash our dishes, floors, windows, to remove spots and all our cleaning chores.

Then we began to discover other uses for Ted’s stuff.  For example it degreases ants and they leave. Then when we discovered the Wooly Adelgid Blight on the hemlocks at our North Carolina farm… we brought out an arborist and tested it on these terrible aphids that are killing hemlocks up and down the US East Coast.

He was amazed, incorporated Ted’s Stuff into his business and has since treated thousands of hemlocks for this disease with Ted’s Stuff.  Ours and others are looking very good including one giant beautiful hemlock which was heavily infected when we bought the farm 12 years ago….now this old giant is green again!

So Ted’s Stuff creates an import opportunity in Ecuador or elsewhere.

Over the years, Ted has discovered that this degreaser and some derivative formulas make excellent bio washes, fertilizers and even pesticides (though they cannot be sold as such in some countries).

These solutions are certified free of all carcinogens.

One of the world’s largest retailers did an intensive study of all “green” and “environmental” cleaning products and discovered that these cleaners of Ted’s are the only truly green ones.

Many other “safe” cleaning products contain ethylene oxide and dioxane, both known to cause cancer.

Here is where the opportunity comes in.  The product can help farmers in many countries.  Mexico is one good example. Ted sent me this note about his experiences in Mexico.

The first small test sample of the cleaner was formulated for farming and sent to Mexico in June 2007.

A PhD Chemist from Poly Tech Institute tested it on five acres of sweet corn in Guanajuato. It was past the normal planting season but he planted anyway. The stalks grew to eight feet tall and the ears were much larger than normal. The stalks were so robust and healthy, that after the harvest, he sold the stalks for cow feed.  Here is the corn.

ecuador-organic-farming

tall and with these long ears.

ecuador-organic-farming

Corn is the biggest crop in Mexico.  The average Mexican corn farmer earns about $100 per acre. Dr. Rico’s five acres brought him approximate $2,000 or $400 per acre.

In Nuevo Italia,  another farmer treated approximately 1,000 mango trees. He advised that his increased averaged 300 additional mangos per tree and earned an extra $60,000 income.

Antonio Gutierrez, La Ruana, owned 70 acres of diseased limes. In 2007, his total income was only $18,000. He tested this BioWash on several rows and had positive results.

Here is Antonio in front of a tree that had been diseased but recovered after BioWashing.

ecuador-organic-farming

In 2008, Antonio BioWashed his entire 70 acres.  By February, which was mid-season his income had already soared to over $100,000.

ecuador-organic-farming

Ted Tidwell and Antonio.

His quality had increase so significantly that he received six pesos per kilo instead of the normal four pesos per kilo. His yield has increased dramatically. Instead of the usual 2 to four limes he had clusters of eleven limes.

Antonio was so pleased with his lime results, he BioWashed 25 acres of papayas. Instead of tall, spindly Florida style papaya trees with only a dozen small papayas, his trees produced 60 to 100 giant papayas.

ecuador-organic-farming

In Antonio’s area, the papaya season normally runs from January to May or June. In November, 2008, Antonio’s friend, Pedro, visited our plant. Pedro advised that Antonio was still harvesting and selling papayas in November. He ships them to Los Angeles labeled “Pesticide Free.”  Antonio’s income from 25 BioWashed acres is estimated around $1,000,000.

Antonio hired 20 additional men to help harvest his produce, thus reducing the need for those men to look in the U.S. for employment.

In farmlands southwest of Guadalajara, tomato growers had unsuccessfully attempted to protect their crops from insects by growing them inside greenhouses. They achieved success with BioWash.

ecuador-organic-farming

Farmers who BioWash perennials such as squash and tomatoes extend their productive season. Dr. Rico’s brother grows backyard tomatoes. His vines continued producing tomatoes for 12 weeks rather than the usual six weeks. He discovered that BioWashed tomatoes remain edible up to six weeks after harvesting.

A squash grower increases and extends his “Pesticide Free” squash harvest.

Here is a farmer BioWashing a squash vine and…

ecuador-organic-farming

and a large, pesticide free squash.

ecuador-organic-farming

I have sent an entire report with contacts and a slide show link to our Ecuador Living subscribers.  You can subscribe and receive this report here.

My most current idea is to test Ted’s Stuff on our citrus. Texas A & M University recently tested Ted’s Stuff  as a possible solution to the Citrus Greening problem.  Bio-Green Clean proved more effective than the highly toxic Bayer chemicals.

The Texas A&M results are being prepared for submittal to the EPA. The EPA will require additional testing.

Ted is looking for citrus growers who would like to test Bio-Green Clean in their groves and I’ll be looking at this for sure because as mentioned above our groves here in Florida fight inflation.

Ecuador-imports

The groves lead down to the lake and…

Ecuador-imports

we have some lemons as well…

Ecuador-imports

They are big ones but I would like to try to make them bigger, juicer, healthier at a lower cost.

Yet here is an even newer idea.  Test Ted’s Stuff to enhance nonfood biofuel crops.

Yesterday’s message  Ecuador Imports looked at Jatropha or Camelina as crops that produce drop-in replacement biofuels and gave excerpts from articles about how KLM and Air New Zeland are testing these fuels now. One of the articles said:  “This (drop in biofuels) is technically feasible. We have demonstrated that it is possible,” Peter Hartman, KLM’s president and CEO, said in a statement today. “Government, industry and society at large must now join forces to ensure that we quickly gain access to a continuous supply of biofuel.”

UOP says its renewable jet fuel can be used as a drop-in replacement requiring no changes to the aircraft technology when used up to a 50 percent blend. The fuel meets critical flight specifications, including freeze and flash points.

Jennifer Holmgren, vice president and general manager of UOP’s renewable energy and chemicals business, said data from the KLM test flight would be incorporated into a report by a coalition of airlines, aircraft manufacturers and related companies to certify renewable jet fuel for use in commercial flights.

The coalition should submit its report to the international standards board that certifies fuels and chemicals within the next few weeks, Holmgren said. Full certification could be granted about next year.

Here is the idea. Combine three thoughts. Ted’s Stuff… nonfood biofuel and low cost Ecuadorian agricultural land… less restricted by numerous federal regulations…with rich soil, 365 days a year of direct sun and low cost labor.  This is a new opportunity that could produce excellent profits.

Ted Tidwell, the owner of the company that produces Ted’s Stuff is kindly providing me with a free supply to test such ideas and I’ll keep you informed.

If this idea appeals to you, contact Ted Tidwell at tedtid7@yahoo.com

Even better, meet with me and Ted at our groves this February. Ted will speak about importing Ted’s Stuff to Ecuador… or anywhere and his experiences.  He will outline its many uses at our February 11-14 course in Mt. Dora, Florida.

Enroll in this Feb. 11-14 course   Quantum Wealth Florida -International Investing & Internet Business, Mt. Dora, Fl.

See a special house for sale in Cotacachi in tomorrow’s message.

Until then Merri and I send our best wishes to you for happy… peaceful…. low stress holidays.  We’ll be here at this site sharing ideas with you every day including Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Join us on Ecuador’s coast this winter.   Attend our seminars and tours in Florida and Ecuador. See the best Ecuador property for you.  Find the best real estate offers.  Know more of Ecuador. To help you experience a bigger adventure in this wonderful nation, to broaden your horizons, to expand your awareness of all Ecuador offers, we are providing deep discounts in 2010 for those who sign up for multiple tours.

We just added four South coast Ecuador tours that can help you gain extra savings with a multi tour pack.

These extra tours create a dilemma for me. See how below.

Two Pack… 2 seminar courses & tours $998 Couple  $1,349 Save $149 on couple

Three Pack… 3 seminar courses & tours   $1399 Couple  $1,899 Save $98 single or $348 on a couple or more

Four Pack… 4 seminar courses & tours   $1,699 Couple $2,299 Save $98 single or $697 on a couple or more

Five Pack… 5 seminar courses & tours  $1,999 Couple $2,699 Save $496 single or $1,046 on a couple or more

Six Pack… 6 seminars courses & tours  $2,199 Couple $3,099 Save $795 single or $1,395 on a couple or more

These four new south coast tours and our six pack tour price create a bit of a crisis here.

As you can see above a six pack costs $3,099.  This is already a really low price for a tour that last up to 21 days (under $150 a day).

But as you will see below, our International Club membership which allows you and a guest to attend up to 56 courses and tours in 2010  (fees would be $40,947 for all these courses individually) is only $2,999.

Which would you choose… 6 courses and tours for $3,099 or those same 6 courses and tours plus 50 more for $2,999?

“Duh,” I said when this was pointed out to me.

So our only solution is to raise the International Club membership to $3,500… still a terrific deal… but $501 more than before.

Save $37,457…plus $501.  I will not raise the International club fee until January 2010. Enroll in the International Club now at the original fee of $2,999.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

Ecuador Air Fare Savings


Yesterday I emailed Ecuador Living subscribers a note on how to get air fares from Canada to Ecuador for under $500… Canadian Dollars!

That note told how a subscriber booked a flight from Toronto, Ontario  to Quito for $459 Canadian plus taxes.

The message also showed how to get such low fares from Canada and the US in Canadian and or US dollars.

One subscriber already sent this reply:

Thanks very much for this info! I looked and found airfares from ABQ for $492 US dollars round trip. Very good bargain from here.  Happy Holidays from Sandy and Phil

You can learn how to get such fares as well when you subscribe to Ecuador Living.  Learn how to subscribe here.

Enjoy extra savings with a multi tour pack.

Two Pack… 2 seminar courses & tours $998 Couple  $1,349 Save $149 on couple

Three Pack… 3 seminar courses & tours   $1399 Couple  $1,899 Save $98 single or $348 on a couple or more

Four Pack… 4 seminar courses & tours   $1,699 Couple $2,299 Save $98 single or $697 on a couple or more

Five Pack… 5 seminar courses & tours  $1,999 Couple $2,699 Save $496 single or $1,046 on a couple or more

Six Pack… 6 seminars courses & tours  $2,199 Couple $3,099 Save $795 single or $1,395 on a couple or more

These four new south coast tours and our six pack tour price create a bit of a crisis here.

As you can see above a six pack costs $3,099.  This is already a really low price for a tour that last up to 21 days (under $150 a day).

But as you will see below, our International Club membership which allows you and a guest to attend up to 56 courses and tours in 2010  (fees would be $40,947 for all these courses individually) is only $2,999.

Which would you choose… 6 courses and tours for $3,099 or those same 6 courses and tours plus 50 more for $2,999?

“Duh,” I said when this was pointed out to me.

So our only solution is to raise the International Club membership to $3,500… still a terrific deal… but $501 more than before.

Save $37,457…plus $501.  I will not raise the International club fee until January 2010. Enroll in the International Club now at the original fee of $2,999.

Economic turmoil today will create more future prosperity then ever before…for those….who accept change and adapt.

This is why we bring together experienced, like minded souls, who take a positive view and think outside the box..in a constructive…thoughtful way.

Merri and I are in our 41st year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and quantum lifestyles.

The importance of this sharing…by like minded souls…was reinforced when a delegate from a course sent an email that said:

My Dearest Merri and Gary, Thank you for your most gracious hospitality last weekend. I am just thrilled at being a part of your group. You and Gary were exactly as I imagined you to be, warm friendly, kind, considerate, genuine, helpful, fun, sincere, what else can I say……I felt so comfortable in your presence and learned so much in your course. I was sad to leave the farm that Sunday afternoon. You made us all feel so welcome and cared about.

You were so kind to make arrangements for a ride with the other delegates from the Charlotte airport. They were so nice to me and so helpful, by the time the weekend was over I felt like they were my long lost brothers. Monday morning we all had breakfast at the airport together and I was so sad to see them go, I was sad the weekend was over, perhaps sad is not the right word for how I was feeling perhaps Gratitude is a better way to describe it. Grateful for having the opportunity to share the weekend with such wonderful, like minded Human Beings, in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Merri and Gary…………..Thanks to you I now have new hope and a new direction to move forward in my life. Thanks to you I am so ready to move to Ecuador and begin a new life. I just have to figure out what I am going to do and how to do it……… I know by attending your classes and conferences that through education and due diligence I will make the right choices.

This delegate’s comments about “belonging and feeling like a brother” to the other delegates is a wonderful refrain we have heard from our readers, year after year.

This why I want to share how you can attend 56 of our investment, business, Spanish, real estate and export, courses, tours in 2010 worth $40,947.

20 years ago Merri and I created a way that readers can join us to be immersed in a year-long learning program through our International Club.  The ideas behind this program began 21 years ago in Vienna, Austria while we were conducting a course there. One of our older delegates, had some sort of attack. The first fear was heart trouble. Several delegates took him to the hospital. Others stayed with him there. I don’t think that delegate was alone for a minute!

What impressed Merri and me was that no one asked the delegates to help this man. The friendships of delegates sharing many courses had just grown so strong that it was a natural reaction, just as if a family member was ill. Fortunately, it was only travel fatigue and the delegate didn’t miss a session of the course!

When you join our International Club 2010 you become part of a special family. The very first member to join the club all those years ago wrote,

“Thank you for the enjoyable and informative courses. I am pleased to be part of your international family and look forward to continuing my education at the next course.”

His feeling struck a familiar chord. It has always been one of my greatest satisfactions to see how much fun delegates have getting together, sharing information and making friendships. These courses somehow draw together like-minded souls. For this reason some delegates come back again and again. They come to learn, but also to be with their many friends made at the courses.

When like-minded souls get together again and again to discuss a common purpose, magic happens! I can’t explain it in any other way-but it is true. In a way our meetings are almost like family reunions. Perhaps it is getting together and reflecting on what has been said and what has been happening. Learning with those who are also interested in the world creates thoughts that multiply the value of what we gain. This is hard to describe but results are most powerful and wonderful!

This is to me is as important as the great financial benefit of attending 52 courses that would cost $40,947 if all booked separately.

See why and our 2010 schedule below.

We started and have continued this program for 20 years because there are wonderful benefits from having repeat delegates at courses. Having repeat delegates makes the whole course somehow more exciting for all. Being a repeat delegate makes it easier to make and keep wealth and to lock in the knowledge you gain. It’s an exciting lifestyle. We have fun, gain adventure, discovery and friendships and share ways to improve our health and wealth!

We have more than doubled our courses in 2010… 56 courses and tours, two in the Blue Ridge of North Carolina, three in Central Florida and the balance in Ecuador.  Few club members actually attend every course and tour…  but you can if you desire. If you attend even a few of the courses, you gain considerable savings.

For those not interested or unable to visit Ecuador, we have our North Carolina courses in the summer when it is cool here in the Blue Ridge Mountains and don’t forget the autumnal beauty in October…. plus in Florida during the winter.  Each US course is attached to an Ecuador tour so you gain information in the US and then travel with others to Ecuador for experience (if you desire).

Here are the 56 courses and tours you can attend free. Plus there is even one more savings you will see below.
