Making a Difference Scholarship Program


One of the great things about gaining more ability as we gain experience is that we can make real positive differences.

Missions and pinnacle careers are about more than money.   This is why we offer free scholarships for some of our Super Thinking courses.

We have now expanded our program for Super Thinking Scholarships.

Here is why.

super-spanish-seminar

Delegates meeting at our house after Super Thinking course.

A delegate who attended on a scholarship last year now has an exciting business and sent the following note.

“Gary & Merri, After attending your workshop, there has been a change either in my thinking, or in some other areas, because synchronicity in my life seems to be returning. Besides Tomatis, in a couple of days I encountered two other interesting projects.”

We want to make a positive difference in people’s lives and in this case a reader’s generosity to help this delegate has been a life changer for him.

In another example, a reader signed up to attend our Super Thinking courses and wrote this:

Merri & Gary,  A major dose of reality for me is to admit that, other than a great deal of creative intelligence, I have nothing to invest in any of your offerings. I am a disabled vet with mental problems who occasionally fantasizes about becoming wealthy, but without the resources to do so.

The VA pension I “live” on is less than $1,000 a month, meaning the payments I will be making to you for the course leave me with less than enough to live on from one month to the next.  Not to mention the cost of travel, meals and lodging when necessary to participate in the seminars.

It is with great sadness that I must ask for a refund and withdraw from the teaching program. I will remove the bonus materials from my computer, as well as refrain from accessing the online bonuses.

Kind Regards,

We could not let a veteran especially someone with a great deal of creative intelligence, who was so willing to work, suffer like that.   We immediately replied:   We wish you well.  We have processed the refund in full but please keep the bonus materials with our hopes they may make your life better in some way.

We have also decided to provide you a full scholarship so please come to the November seminar anyway. There will be no charge.

We arranged transportation and a roommate to share his accommodation costs and provided a full scholarship.

Were these little gestures worthwhile?  You bet!

Two months after this delegate had been so discouraged, that reader wrote:   Buenos Dias, Senor y Senora Escott! (don’t forget about the E!).  May you be blessed with excellent health and a long and fulfilling life!

Thank-you for a most enjoyable 5 days, with so many people of like-mind! You are doing a fantastic thing, with love and concern, and I am eternally grateful for your friendship and your teachings.  The feelings I am experiencing are happiness, joy and great hope, and the realization that I have many new and wonderful friends, from around the world.

Thank-you as well for the referrals. I spoke with a wonderful doctor this manana, and am setting him up as my newest Kindle customer!

Looks to be a long-term relationship, as is true already for Suzanne & Shawn Bandick, and hopefully in the near future, Ron Childs.  So too, Rick Brown’s wife, Natasha, is considering publishing a cookbook, which I will most likely help out with.

Work on my e-book for veterans (How to Start a New Life and a New Career) is coming along nicely. For the most part, my own experiences, with the coursework and with new-found friendships, are becoming an important “identification” factor in its writing.  Time to get back to work…  much love,

Another month later he wrote again:   Sorry for not writing sooner, Merri and Gary, but you’ve helped make me a very busy guy!  I am now working with 6 new Kindle clients since the last seminar. Four of those are publishing books (Glenn & Ted, you know about, also Gene & Laura) on both Kindle and CreateSpace, and I am also doing their copy editing, formatting and helping to re-write their manuscripts!

Getting ready to do some extensive web work for both Glenn and Susan. Both their websites need to be “search engine optimized” and both need help with further website development–so, I’m happily jumping in there!

Been working with Mark and Sandra, too, not only for Ted’s books (note the plural, one layman, one scientific/engineer), but for a children’s book series that needs additional books written and more earlier book upgrades. This project could also turn into audio and video productions–two areas in which I have hands-on, production and editing.

I have been truly blessed by your efforts on my behalf, with allowing me to attend the seminars and participate. Your steering me toward the Kindle business–not to mention the extra business I am realizing for my Copywriting Whiz services!

I am very grateful to you both, for the wisdom, knowledge and understanding you have shared with me. And the friendship, always!

This has been a most valuable time for me, since I have plans to get the veteran’s program up and running over the next few weeks. That will be one of my favorite endeavors–to help other veterans the way you have helped me–to be able to give back.   Much love,

There are three main benefits delegates gain from our Super Thinking courses… #1: Super Thinking. #2: Friendships and contacts with like minded souls and #3: the Subject. 

We have Super Thinking courses on investing, business, writing and Spanish.  The Spanish course teaches how to speak Spanish in three days.  Super thinking + Writing to Sell teaches how to write to sell better and how to sell your writing.  Super Thinking + International Investing & Business updates on how to invest and do business globally.

The biggest benefit is the Super Thinking ability.  We live in a hectic, fast paced world that is bombarded by so much phony information that it is hard to keep up.  Learning the state of relaxed concentration is vital to success in everything we do.  If we cannot think clearly and reduce stress…. we accomplish very little.

Our mobile, multi – culture world often leaves us surrounded with strangers… even at work and in the neighborhood.  Getting together with like minded souls who have a common purpose is  fun.  The contacts as we see above can really kick start a new lifestyle.

With clear minds and good contacts the rest… the Spanish, the writing, selling, investing and business comes much more easily.

Emails like these above make our work so fulfilling that we have decided to extend our scholarship plan to all our courses and seminars.

If you wish to apply for a scholarship, please look at the schedule below and  send an email in 200 words or less stating which your choice and with why you wish to attend and what you would do with the knowledge you gain.  I’ll post these anonymously (no one will ever know who wrote each application so you can write freely). We let readers vote who they feel best deserves each scholarship.   One full (ie waive the course fee) scholarship will be given for each course below to the person who receives the most votes from readers.

We hope to see you… either as a delegate or with a scholarship.

Gary

Absorb  through  Osmosis

Merri and I are in our 45th year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and Super Thinking  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.  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.

24 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 all those 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 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 as we learn how to improve our health and increase our wealth.

The courses draw 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 many of our courses.

Another savings: Lifestyle for Two.

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.)

The International Club fee of $1,799 is less than the price of two seminars.

I invite you to be a member of the International Club which allows you and your guest of your choice to attend all of these courses and tours.

Let’s prosper in these times of change. Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? Join us at our farms and visit Ecuador. We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

Gary

You and a guest can attend all of our seminars, courses online courses plus $1,246 of online value.  Club membership is $1,799.   If you attend only two courses or seminars the $1,799 is less than the price of two seminars… plus you receive all of the online courses and updates.

Multi Currency Portfolio Update

This first one and a half hour session by Gary has been divided into three sessions of about 30 minutes each.

You can hear the first part of session one free at Session #1 Part 1

You can hear all seven hours of the multi currency updates as a multi currency portfolio subscriber.

International Club members and Multi Currency subscribers can access all three parts of the session at their password protected site here.

Knowing how contrarian multi currency moves work can help you gain profits attached to the Euro.

Multi currencies…

Danish kroner…

British pound.

All three of these currencies are attached and move in and out of balance with one another.  Profits come from the imbalances.
2012 is likely to be a very bad year for financial markets.

Excerpts from a December 5, 2011 Financial Times article “Lack of havens to hit investors in 2012” by Duncan Robinson outlines why:  Weak growth, continuing eurozone woes and an absence of safe havens will ensure a difficult year for investors in 2012, according to a report from Merrill Lynch Wealth Management.

Developed economies will continue to struggle in 2012, according to the report. The average growth of the US, the eurozone, Japan, Canada, UK will be 1.1 per cent, down from a previously predicted 1.4 per cent.

The Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Year Ahead 2012 report predicts global economic growth of 3.7 per cent, led by emerging markets. Chinese growth will drop to 8.6 per cent, compared to a previously predicted 9.2 per cent, while India and Russia will grow 7.5 and 4 per cent respectively.

Equity performance will be modest, predicts the report. “We are recommending [investors] focus on large cap companies with strong cash flow and growing dividends,” said Bill O’Neill, chief investment officer at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management.

The task of ensuring diversification across investment portfolios will be complicated by a shrinking set of havens. Both core and peripheral eurozone sovereign bonds hold significant problems for investors. Low yields offer little value in the core sovereign market, highlighted by the weak demand at recent German Bund auctions.

Periphery debt, meanwhile, presents a credit risk. “You’d have to assume some intervention. It is a hazardous investment and deeply politicised,” said Mr O’Neill.

Gold too was unlikely to repeat its strong 2011 performance, the report said.

“We are clearly on the cusp of something potentially dreadful in Europe,” said Mr O’Neill, arguing that it was too early to invest again in eurozone financial equities, despite their cheapness. The FTSE Eurofirst 300 banks index has fallen 36 per cent since January.

Denmark is likely to be a haven. Scandinavian countries are among the safest places to invest in 2012.

An analysis from the American National Bureau of Economic Research points that Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are among the safest countries in Europe to lend to.

Each Scandinavian country (Denmark, Norway and Sweden ) has its own currency… the kroner.   The Danish, Swedish and Norwegian kroner provides a European weighting but protects against euro problems.

The analysis shows that Denmark since its establishment as an independent state in year 980 has always met its debt obligations and has never let down its creditors.

Compare this with Greece, which since 1829 has defaulted on 50.6% of the debt which the country has established.

The safety problems of 2012 will create opportunity as explained in a new report just published for our International Club and multi currency subscribers.

Here is a chart from the report that…

currency charts

shows safety and multi currency opportunity in 2007, 2009 and 2010.

For example in October 2009 to 2010 the return on Danish kroner bonds was pitiful… about 2%, but if one bought $100,000 worth at the six kroner level, there was 600,000 kroner at work…that earned $12,000 kroner.  By October 2010 612,000 kroner was worth $122,400.  A total return (in US dollars) of  22.4% in a year… from a really safe investment… during one of the worst economic periods of the century.

The Huge 2018 Risk

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2018.

I hope I am wrong.

According to Treasurydirect.com, as of October 31, 2017 the cost of interest on  the total US public debt of $20,467,375,664,755.32 (20 trillion+) was $24,411,569,716.36 (24 billion+).

The 36 cents isn’t much of a problem.  The other 20 trillion is.

This is good news and bad… the rock and the hard spot.  The bad news is that the rock (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… not quite into 2018 and debt has shot past 20 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government can borrow and borrow and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest this year will amount to around $483 billion on the 20 trillion of debt.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9,229,172,659,218.31 (9 trillion +) the interest that year was $451,154,049,950.63 (451 billion +).

Interest payments in 2017 are 7% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 100% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

Here is the very hard spot.  The downside is that low interest has reduced earnings of investors.  Low interest has ruined the lifestyles of many who have retired.

Here is what happened and why the problem may exist for quite a bit longer.

If investors can increase the interest rate to 6% from the lousy 1% (or so) they earn now, they gain 1,263% more over 30 years.  Anyone living off interest, who is drawing down their portfolio over 20 years, makes 57% more annual income every year.

But if investors get 6% interest instead of 1%, the government has to also pay more on it debt.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.  

Rising interest rates, that we would like to see as investors, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest goes to 6% it is like the $20+ trillion national debt  rising to 100 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increases, a 5% increase in interest rates would increase the national debt by five times.

A tax increase?  The current tax act being proposed reduces, not increases, revenue.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future. This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now.

Interest rates create a massive problem on two sides of the same coin.  Raise rates the massive national debts ruins the purchasing power of currencies.  Keep interest rates low and capitalism does not work for investors.  Politicians simply borrow more (on our behalf) but for their benefit.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2018.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2018 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

When the Dow Jones Industrial Average recently passed 20,000, another milestone of “20” took place that has a much darker meaning to your and my spending power.  The U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

27 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2018 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a 2013 report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

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

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

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

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

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

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

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

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

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

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

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

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $299.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

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

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

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

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

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2018” free.

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

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

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

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2018”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2018” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

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

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

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

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

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

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

This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.

Health is Wealth


Good health leads to wealth that is hard to maintain when the world seems to be falling apart.

MSCI chart

Last week, stock markets collapsed once again. The chart above from Bloomberg shows the huge drop in global equity prices since May and how the World Index of shares dropped over 4% in a day.

Risk is back on… almost everywhere.  Normally when stocks are down, bonds or commodities are up so investors always have some safe place to go.  This is not so now.

Yesterday’s Financial times article about “Risk On – Risk Off” shows why when it says:  Friday 12.00 BST. A pledge of support for the global economy by the G20 has failed to stem the latest wave of risk asset bloodletting, with global investor sentiment still extremely fragile on worries about the economic outlook and the eurozone fiscal crisis.

After a torrid Thursday, in which global stocks fell 4.5 per cent to re-enter bear market territory, European stocks and US futures had pointed to a more positive session.

Copper, the sector bellwether which was down 7.3 per cent on Thursday, was off another 8 per cent early on Friday, hitting a 13-month low as selling accelerated into the Asian close. But in keeping with the initially more upbeat tone at the European open it has since pared those losses and is down 5.4 per cent at $3.29 a pound.

Even agricultural products reckoned to benefit from a growing global economy are unloved. US traded soy futures, for example, have hit their lowest price in 10-months as investors fret that demand will slow from the fast-developing nations.

Shares are crashing… commodities too. Plus interest rates are so low that bonds pay little and there is a risk of loss if interest rates rise… not to mention the risk of default.

Conditions like this create great social and individual stress and stress is detrimental to our health.

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times.   Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances,  being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

See below why Merri and I dress alike for better health and wealth.

These thoughts are the core behind the quantum wealth sessions in our  international business and investing plus natural health seminar this autumn  (Oct.7-9).

Our quantum wealth sessions shown in the syllabus (subject to change with economic evolution) below include the logical aspects of wealth creation and ideas that go beyond logic.

There are many ways to create wealth beyond logic.

universal-frequency

Our use of color and observing the correct colors (frequencies) at the correct time are important.

 We have been incorporating the ideas of Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades… but our  October 2011 devotes an entire session to this portion of the course.

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.

Our seminar 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 that I cover in the Quantum Wealth sessions of the seminar.

#1: Quantum mechanics & frequency and 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.

I try to make sure that I am working facing east and try to be at work during the sunrise.  That color has a direct impact on awakening the system.

Merri and I lived for a winter with the Taita Yatchak and his apprentices. We lived as they did, without electricity, hot water or even a roof over our heads at night. We took all the shamanic lessons and one lesson was for abundance.  The Yatchak used to say visualize Golden Orange… the color of abundance.

Vedic traditions also always face the office towards the east.

Sunrise at our Florida home…

shaman-frequency

filling our house with golden orange.

We have been incorporating the ideas of using frequency for Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades… but beginning this year we have been devoting an entire day to this portion of the seminar.

These golden colors make me think of a golden rule of investing that there is always some fact we do not know.

The uncertainty principle that is a core component of our universe… means we cannot be certain of any investment… any factany future. I guess this means we cannot even be certain of uncertainty, but I highly recommend that you expect it in forms we cannot even imagine… volcanoes shutting down the system. Greece going broke… maybe Spain, Portugal, Italy and even the USA as well.   Then expect something else unexpected to take place will have an impact… good or bad on your  savings, job, business, savings wealth and investments.

Merri and I believe in uncertainty and respect the limits of logic so we use many tactics to think, act, live, do business and invest beyond logic.

First, we put our relation with our faith, our family and our health ahead of money. Without these foundations it is hard to be grounded… to resist greed and fear and to put emphasis on service, sustainability and fulfillment ahead of cash.

Second, we make sure our main investment is on our own business. Investments in shares or bonds and such are backup.  They rely on a social contract that has been ripped to shreds by massive debt globally. This means that all investments are at risk in ways we cannot know.

In our own business we can do something about the product or service we provide.  We still cannot be certain in business… but in business we can be more certain than in investments where we are not involved.

Third, we invest in what we know…. as often as possible with people we like and trust. Investments beyond business rely on a system, an idea and the people involved. The more you know about the people and the idea… the better.

Next we look for ways to tap the infinite wisdom that is within all people… to connect with that unbounded portion of our being that’s in the cosmic state. We all spring from this infinite source… we are of it.  Our logic just cannot compute infinity in symbolic form.  To try is like processing a terabyte of data with a 16K processor (even worse actually).

We have to find ways to get in touch with our greater intelligence and learn how to see, hear, feel, taste and smell tiny bits of data in ways that our dimwitted brains can use.

We live in an uncertain world. I cannot be totally certain but believe that risk and the unknown are almost guaranteed. However we spring from infinite wisdom and we can let this unbelievably smart stuff we are made of filter through.  We cannot think what pops up in words. We cannot force it to make sense… but we can use tactics like wealth beyond logic tactics Merri and I use to let our innate wisdom direct us so we enjoy 300% of life… health, wealth and fulfillment.

There are at least three simple ways to turn on this super thinking ability:  meditation, listening to 60 cycle music and taking L-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.

Merri and I meditate 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.

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

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 L-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.

Even though we are closing in on 70 years of age, we often dress alike, as high school lovers do,  knowing that the colors surrounding us have subtle impacts on our moods, emotions and thoughts.   This makes us a better team in every way.

Merri and I heading to our North Carolina seminar hall to conduct a seminar.

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 our international investing and business seminars.

Here is the entire four day schedule of the seminar.

Session #1:  1000 Year Economic Review‚  What Now? How to cash in on the multi currency evolution.  Gary Scott. Knowing 1000 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 Euro at below 3% to invest in international investments, international business, international real estate or other international currencies that pay 5%, 6%, 7% and even more.

Session #2: How & Where to Bank Abroad.   Thomas Fischer. Learn how to choose an overseas bank… what type of account to open… how to review of global stock markets, international currencies and international interest rates and how to spot shifts versus the US dollar.

Thomas Fischer, Jyske Global Asset Management. Thomas is the senior VP at JGAM and  JGAM is in charge of investor multi currency allocation strategy.  He will speak about global and multi currency investing and how to borrow low and deposit high.

Learn how to borrow collapsing euro to invest in high yielding bonds. See how to diversify in multiple currencies.

Thomas Fischer speaking with delegates at a previous seminar.

Session #3: International investment portfolios for diversification.  See how to build portfolios based on 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.

See good places to invest now.  Always updated, currently our list includes #1: emerging stock markets. Emerging markets outperformed developed markets for almost two decades now.  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.   Emerging markets fell faster but rebounded in 2009 and led the global investment pack.

Last year the emerging markets index (in US dollars) was up 58.99% compared to 23.05% for the same world 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.

You’ll learn why in 2011 we shifted out of BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China).  Even though these 4 countries now generate approximately 27% of the world´s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) they were over valued.   We look at a special BRIC ALTERNATIVE trading idea in our Autumn 2011 seminars. The October seminar updates markets for 2011 and compares emerging and major market opportunity for 2012.

Session #4:  Good investing sector: Emerging market bonds. You’ll see how I am earning up to 12% on safe emerging market bonds in Brazil and Turkey. Good investing sector #3: 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. Good sector #4: How to Cash in on Smalltown USA.

We’ll look at properties for sale in Ashe County, North Carolina and Central Florida. These areas have two unique features. First, they offer great real estate value. Second, they are great places to visit and live…Smalltown USA!

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.

Session #5:  Real estate in Ecuador. 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.

For example we’ll see how to own condos like this for as little as $59,500.

gary-scott-seminar-feature

These condos have excellent view are near the village center, have a small park nearby and this view.

gary-scott-seminar-feature

This session reviews a list of current Ecuador property for sale.

Session #6: Global Investing Q&A plus 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.

Session #7: The Ultimate Asset… Your Own International Micro Internet Business. How to use the internet in your micro business.

Session #8: How to monetize your micro business. Learn eleven ways to develop income. One section in this session shows how I turned a $950 direct mailing into $118,500 in three weeks. I added $9,875 a month to my income! This information is worth the cost of the course alone.

Session #9: 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.

Session #10: 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.

Session #11: How to profit from an import export business… especially in Ecuador.  We have been exporting and promoting Ecuador export tours for decades.  This session looks at exporting overall as well as Ecuador export products and how to export from Ecuador.  We proide extensive knowledge about Ecuadorian products and sales back in the USA.

Plus we’ll have Micro business case studies. What we are doing now. How readers have started small and grown 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 as one of the top 16,000 sites in the USA.  One case study at the course will review how our daughter has turned the Love-Recognition and Care markets into a huge success teaching her love of the performing arts dancing…. singing and drama.

Session #12: Quantum Wealth. Multi-Dimensional Micro Business for Fulfillment & Wealth.  The Sound of Wealth & Health. Quantum Mechanics & Frequency and how they affect markets and connect business and investing with health & wealth.

This session reviews the importance of balance. Integrating brain waves and being in the zone… 60 cycle sound, meditation and beyond. The importance of being wise and how to have a global view.

Session #13:  How to Get Your International Micro Business Started.   This sessions shows how to create your own business or how to use our turn key micro business program beginning with five businesses.

To help, we have expanded our focus on surviving the loss of jobs and currency purchasing power though micro businesses.  Economic sluggishness creates extra opportunity in equities, real estate, commodities and for those who create their own micro business.

Yet we have tried to maintain a green… fair trade focus as well.  We have started a program to help our readers create their own micro business working with these businesses as introducers, dealers and distributors.

We started this micro business program for our readers with five businesses who offer products and services we love.

#1: Purely Green/Bio Wash

#2: Jyske Global Asset Management  (JGAM)

#3: Candace Newman Essential Oils

#4: Ecuador Roses

#5: Ecuador Imbabura Export Products

Each of these products offers a special social benefit as well as income opportunity.

Jyske and its subsidiary, JGAM, is a bank that does not believe in bonuses.  We love this because we believe that departures from solid banking and taking excessive risks by bank employees chasing multi million dollar bonuses have caused a lot of problems worldwide.

Essential oils help promote natural health and shift away from a medical system that is draining to the global economy.

Ecuador roses and exports promote employment of the poor and Veriflora certified roses (those offered in the program) encourage fair trade, humanitarian, healthy,  employment.

Purely Green and Bio Wash promotes all these social environmental values.   Purely Green is a bio degradable cleaner that Merri and I have used and written about for almost two decades.   This is an economical product that is good for the environment and healthy.  The use of this product eliminates poisons from the body, home and surroundings.

At the seminar we look at how you can start your own micro business or use this service that offers the following benefits:

#1: Connect you via our our online course “International Business Made EZ” to specific business opportunities with the five companies above.

#2: Keep you in touch with other readers in the program, share business tips, ideas contacts and even website support in some instances.

#3: Local lead assistance.  We can zero in as close as 20 miles to a location so for example we can send a separate email to every reader within 20 miles of the address of a referrer.  And although we won’t release the names in that area, we can send them a note of the opportunity.

At tthe seminar delegates also enjoy a Wine & Cheese Reception at the New River Winery hosted by Jyske Global Asset Management.

When Logic is Not Enough


Blaine Watson is a master at Vedic Astrology

Thinking out of the box.

In these times of rapid change, experience and education are not always enough to keep pace.

We must have ways to think beyond the norm… outside the box of logic…  so our information processing and decision making can escape the tyranny of reason.

This is why Merri and I use Vedic Astrology as a way to go beyond our immediate imagination and to see life’s potential in different ways.

Blaine Watson

Blaine Watson teaching a Beyond Logic course.

This is because the future is always ambiguous… even if we think not! As technology puts booster rockets on economic and cultural evolution, it can be another pressure on us.  Our lives can take many numbers of paths that lead in different directions… at any time.

This leaves us asking, “What SHOULD we do?”

Astrology is an ancient science that allows us to open windows of information that create a set of out-of-the-box rules that direct us in ways we would never logically reach.

Because this process is fun and without threat… we can see future opportunity in numerous expanded ways.

Where mystery, science and market movements meet.

Those who can answer this intriguing question probably understand the quantum aspects of existence. Quantum mechanics is the part of science that tells us that our world is not anything like we expect or can even imagine. The quantum state is the world where our intention turns energy into matter. At the quantum level, everything comes from nothing. The present, future and past are one. Atoms spin up and down at the same time but when observed, choose a direction to spin depending on the universe we are in.

In short, our quantum existence is impossible in logic. Yet it is a proven fact.

Quantum science also helps us understand astrology. If our intention can alter the movement of minute particles separated by billions of relative miles, so too can the movement of huge particles that swirl around us impact our lives.

This is why Merri and I have used Vedic astrologers for years. We have found them invaluable when it comes to making decisions about health, wealth and family that we cannot make with just logic.  This ancient knowledge shows us different perspectives.

Rather than try to explain or defend the science of this, let me just share a few ways that Vedic astrology has helped us.

A example took place when our daughter Elle graduated from University in London with a degree in dramatic arts. Her question to Merri and me was: “Should I go for a career in singing or go on and get a teacher’s certificate in Physical Education?” (She was a superb athlete as well as an aspiring singer.)

We all agreed that becoming a singer was a long shot. Teaching was safe. But we knew that her passion was to shoot for the stars. So how would she feel in later life if she didn’t try?

Merri had our Vedic astrologer check her chart. The astrologer knew nothing about Elle but said that two months before we had asked, she had moved into a three year cycle when her best thing would be the performing arts, entertaining, etc. That was enough to convince me. “Go for it”, we encouraged her.

She did and within a week she was picked as a backup singer with a popular English rock group. Her first gig was before 4,000 fans and she met rock stars she idolized. This led her into a performing arts business where today  she is already earning over six figures a year. No one could have predicted the amazing ride she has taken. None of us saw this coming from the risky choice.  Just consider the difference in this life!

Without that reading, we would have felt more inclined to have her take a “safer” route. What a shame that would have been!

All we saw was that there was good potential at this time, and potential is what quantum science is all about. Every second of our hidden universe is composed of infinite potential. But that potential is hidden from our logic. Vedic astrology can help us figure this potential out.

In another case another daughter had finished university and was successfully employed as a fisheries biologist for the Bureau of Land Management. She wanted to go back to school and become a veterinarian. This meant another long hard four-year slog and sacrifice for all. Should she do it? Her chart suggested that this was perfect for her so she tried. Doors opened like magic. She was one of 23 accepted on her first try from over 300 applicants. Financing appeared in unexpected ways and she breezed through the four years. She is now a successful, joyfully happy vet. This was her perfect place. The astrologer saw this and he was right!

The inability to measure the results of astrology used to bother me enormously until years ago I read an article about Aristotle Onassis. He was asked about his use of astrology. His reply was that to be a millionaire, astrology wasn’t really needed, but to become a billionaire, it was essential!

This struck a chord as I lived in Hong Kong and saw the most successful businessmen there (often billionaires) look beyond logic.

To make billions, one has to take enormous risks. Taking such risks require us to see in ways that go beyond our logic, reason and understanding.  To know what to do next, can be a trial by fire or a delightful turn of events.

Merri and I started using Vedic astrology years ago. I do not use it to make day-to-day business decisions. Most things get worked out with logic and thought. But astrology provides an overlay in our business and life, gives us a sense of when to push, when to pull back, when times are ripe and when they not.

Merri and I review our charts once a year with our friend and advisor, Blaine Watson. Blaine has been studying astrology since age nine and practicing Vedic Astrology for 25 years and professionally for 18 years. He received certification from Benares Hindu University in Varanasi, India and has over 7,000 clients in 41 countries.

Here is Blaine Watson and Vaidya Mishra teaching at our farm.

Multi-currency-courses

Blaine has been amazingly correct, incredibly insightful with my and Merri’s charts.

Sometimes I am astounded with little points that are no big deal. For example, last year he said my chart showed that beginning February 27, I would have such strong opportunities in business that people would give me property. I really did not believe this. On February 25 the owner of www.garyscott.com, a site I had troubles with wrenching this site back …(although it was my site, over the years another group had taken it ), I received a note saying he felt he should give it to me! I accepted and he made the transfer on…you guessed it, February 27.

Other times, what my chart says is important because it gives me encouragement. For example a number of years back my chart showed problems with government authorities.

Sure enough a two-year tax audit ensued, beginning almost on the day predicted. However I was told even though this trouble would run for over two years it would bring me money and this suggestion (although I just couldn’t believe it) was right! I received two refunds (I had been overpaying), the first was over $70,000 and one later for $44,000. This amounted to over $114,000. The refund was nice but more importantly the knowledge during the two year process that the potential for the audit to end well was encouraging.

Another year Merri’s chart showed she was in a long period where people would just give her valuable things including land and houses. That knowledge helped us make the decision to buy our farm here, despite the fact it had not been surveyed. The survey turned up 33 acres more than expected. We received this great gift free! Another year my chart suggested I should reduce my equity load. This matched my logical concerns about an inflated stock market. Thus I was 90% in bonds when the US stock market bombed.

I could go on and on with such stories.

Vedic Astrology helps us in many, many ways. First, its overall readings point out the areas that will bring greatest success. For me it’s writing, publishing and communication (surprise-surprise), plus real estate and liquids and gas. Further my annual updates show which of the areas will work best that year and when to push and when to rest.

So I am especially alert to opportunities in these fields. For example though I generally avoid investing in shares, I bought shares in a Singapore company, Hyflux, which is in the business of purifying water in China. I did my logical due diligence before investing in those shares but it was the liquid aspect that first attracted my attention. I am currently also heavily researching investment opportunities in biodiesel (liquid and gas).

Vedic Astrology gives me very exact investing and business knowledge, but deeper still: confidence, clarity and a calmness that come from knowing that all things are in order even when they do not seem to be. This along with prayer, faith and conviction are guides at times when there is no other way to know.

This has been a very deep and personal experience for me, Merri and our family and I am always pleased to recommend Blaine.

He can help you have a detailed description of your chart, how it is laid out, the significations of the planets, the 12 signs, the 12 houses, the 27 nakshatras or as well as an explanation of the planetary cycles (dashas) and transits (gochar).

You learn about your  chart and understand what is influencing you each day.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

Here I am working poolside in the winter, at our Florida farm.

gary scott

Here I am with our hound Ma, working during the summer at our North Carolina farm.

Learn how to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.  I have been able to earn by writing in Hong Kong, England, the Isle of Man, Dominican Republic and Ecuador to name a few of the place I have lived.  Everywhere I have been… too numerous to share here, I have been able to work.

All I need is my laptop.

That’s all you need too… a laptop to be free!

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

Another benefit is income.   Writing has brought me both our farms, free and clear… plus a lot more.

Another good example of earning potential is my friend Hugh Howey.   He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks.

Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon.com.  This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

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

Writers like High are great inspirations.

A couple of years ago Hugh  left Florida, and moved to South Africa.  He had a sailing catamaran built for him and now can sail the world while he continues to write.

Hugh explained it like this: And that’s the miracle of working as a writer: I can do it from anywhere and everywhere. The past few years, I’ve done a lot of writing from airplanes and airports while on business trips abroad.  SAND was entirely written overseas while traveling through seven different countries; I think it’s a better story because of those inspirations.  In upcoming years, I may be writing near your home port.

Hugh’s a super star writer and his success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.  But you do not have to be a million dollar a year earner or a traveler to benefit from writing.

The good news is… you do not need a huge success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing can bring you a life that most people only dream of, as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

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

What most success stories like Hugh’s rarely explain is the many hours of writing that was devoted before their self published book sales soared.   Hugh, like most writers were journeymen first.  Stardom came later.

Here are sevens secrets that can help you become a journeyman writer. 

The secrets are a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income, freedom and fulfillment.

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

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

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

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably will be for you too.

First some history.

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

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

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

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

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

The seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love this evolution due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted.

Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets.

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

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

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

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

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

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. 

I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

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

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

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

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

Be immersed in your passion and get paid well for it. 

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  Extra income, more freedom and fulfillment are usually more than enough enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a special offer. 

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

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

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

You save more than $598 because you also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster David Cross (at no extra cost).

David Cross

David has been our webmaster since our website began in the 1990s.  He is Merri’s and my business partner. We could not run our business as we do without him.

Learn the tactics we use in our web business that condenses 27 years of practical experience about search engine optimization, and writing for search engines.

For the last 27 years David has worked with companies large and small – IBM, Agora Publishing, AstraZeneca and many small business owners.  He has worked in 22 countries, and lived in six of them.

David’s clients span the globe and represent companies and charities both large and small.  From corporate giants to small, one-woman businesses and everything from finance, healthcare, publishing, technology, real estate, veterinarians, alternative health centers and everything in between.

David is an essential part of our web based business.

Myles Norin, CEO of Agora, Inc.  wrote:  “I have found David’s knowledge and experience unmatched in the industry.  Without David’s expertise and guidance for the past 7 years, we would not be nearly as successful as we are.”

As Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD, he worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and – over a 7-year period – helped to propel Agora’s online revenues from around $20 million to well over $300 million.

David’s webinar will help you gain benefits in your micro business that large internet marketing companies use.  In this practical recorded workshop you will learn valuable skills to help your micro business.

There has never been a time when the opportunity for small businesses abroad has been so outstanding.  Expand your borders now!  Increase your economic security freedom, independence and success.
