The One Word for Profit

I just want to say one word to you… just one word. 


From the movie, The Graduate 1967:  Mr. McGuire: “I just want to say one word to you.  Just one word.”

Benjamin: “Yes, sir.” Mr. McGuire: “Are you listening?” Benjamin: “Yes, I am.”  Mr. McGuire: “Plastics.”

That was the word 50 years ago… in the movie.

There was probably a better one word such as…”Computers” .  But 1967 was just a little early and computers do use a lot of plastic.

But let’s focus now on  just one NEW word.

Are you reading?

Just one word.


Plastics and computers were great places to begin careers in 1967.  Batteries have this type of potential now.

This is a trend to watch.  Here are just three of many reasons why:

First, the batteries are getting bigger.  Again and again the biggest battery in the world has been outpaced by one even bigger.  You can see a claim of the biggest at (1) in 2012.   This said the biggest battery was in China, energized by 140 Mega-Watts of renewable wind & solar energy and storing 36 Mega-Watt-Hours (MWh) of energy distributed by a smart power transmission system.

By 2014, according to (2) a contract in Southern California called for a battery ten times larger than China’s, a 400MW lithium ion battery capable of providing 100MW of power for a total of four hours.

Tesla built. The business insider article said: Tesla’s new Powerpack battery storage project in Southern California is the largest on Earth.

Each new big battery is claimed to be bigger.

Second, batteries are becoming easier and faster to build.

A USA today article “Tesla builds world’s biggest battery in Australian Outback” (3) refutes the claim that California’s battery is biggest.

Setting aside the who’s bigger argument, the more important point is that Tesla built this Australian battery, in the outback where there was little infrastructure, in just over two months.

The article says:  “The world’s biggest lithium-ion battery has plugged into an Australian state grid, an official said Friday, easily delivering on Tesla Inc. chief executive Elon Musk’s 100-day guarantee.”

Musk promised to build the 100-megawatt battery within 100 days of the contracts being signed at the end of September or hand it over to the South Australia state government for free.

The official launch came a little over 60 days after the deal was signed. But crucially, it came on the first day of the Australian summer — the season when power usage soars due to air conditioning use.

Tesla says the battery has the capacity to power 30,000 homes for up to an hour in the event of a severe blackout, but is more likely to be called into action to boost supply during peak demand periods.

Third, battery technology is advancing at an exponential rate.

Another article about the biggest California battery at (4) says: “This type of technology was not possible five or 10 years ago and the amount of storage the battery provides is unprecedented considering its relatively small footprint.”

What do advances in batteries mean?

Energy will be more dependable, more accessible everywhere and will cost less.

The article “Power Prices Go Negative in Germany, a Positive for Energy Users”(6)  tells how “Germany has spent $200 billion over the past two decades to promote cleaner sources of electricity.  That enormous investment is now having an unexpected impact — consumers are now actually paid to use power on occasion, as was the case numerous times last year.”

On Christmas Eve and on Christmas 2017 power prices plunged below zero on the EPEX Spot, a large European power trading exchange.

Low industrial demand due to the holiday, unseasonably warm weather and strong breezes that generated extra wind power on the grid, pushed energy prices into the negative.  That was not the first time. Prices for electricity in Germany dipped below zero-more than 100 times in 2017.

On Christmas Eve, German factory owners and other major consumers were at times paid over $60, per megawatt-hour they used.

Wouldn’t that be nice, getting a check rather than a bill from the electric company?

Negative energy prices come when available power outstrips demand.

The importance of batteries is based on the fact that the supply of electricity in a grid must be perfectly balanced with demand… every second.  Supply needs to match demand instantly, reliably, all the time.

Solar and wind power are dependent on weather.  At times these energy sources spin out too much electricity.  At times these sources do not produce enough.  Other suppliers of electricity cannot stop or start producing quickly.  Someone has to mop up an energy flood or throw buckets of power into the grid when it’s parched.

Batteries can meet this challenge.  Batteries and smart distribution have the ability to produce and absorb power instantly.  Batteries makes a true transition to renewable power possible.

There is opportunity beyond the big battery as well.  Many small batteries hooked up together by a business called an “aggregator”, often make much more sense.

Imagine placing a small battery in many homes or businesses and linking them all into the grid.   This aggregation solves power imbalances.  The consumers store energy when it is plentiful and cheap.  They use the stored energy at times when it is expensive, or even better sell it back when there is extra demand on the grid.

The many aggregated batteries are linked and coordinated by computers so they act like one big battery.

This aggregation lowers energy costs for everyone and reduces the need for burning fossil fuels or creating nuclear power plants.

On the other side of size, almost a decade ago research began on batteries so small they were built inside an electron microscope.

One group of researchers have built a battery that’s six times thinner than a bacterium, so small it could run sensors that monitor a single cell.

In 2017 researchers at the University of Maryland announced a battery called a “nanopore”, so small that several million nanopores can make up a battery the size of a postage stamp.

Batteries.  That’s the word.  They will change the way the world works.

What to do?

First, let’s imagine the potential.  If “plastics” made computers possible and computers made the internet possible and the internet made smart phones what they are… what can “batteries” do?

Advances in batteries will change everything.  The internet and smart phones changed so much in our daily lives.  Batteries have the power to make changes of this magnitude.

I don’t know much about batteries.  Most of us don’t, but we can grasp the implications of a battery balanced world.  Each of us has some unique knowledge that can help us peak into a window of battery powered opportunity.

For example, the ability to use renewable energy in remote rural areas can make real estate more valuable in Smalltown USA.

People are already migrating from high-cost states to lower-cost areas as home prices and rents in large urban centers skyrocket, and it becomes easier for people to work remotely.  Batteries can help accelerate this trend.

That’s good for our living in Smalltown USA.  At our North Carolina farm hydro power now makes more sense.   At our Florida grove, solar power works better as the cost of solar panels has plummeted.


That’s the one word for profit.   Few of us really understand batteries, but we can each imagine one way that changes in batteries will make something worth more.  Look to your imagination… your experience and how you live.  How will batteries change your life?  Seek these ideas because they contain the seeds that can grow into profit for you.


Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Profit from post COVID-19 trends.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in my report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”,  you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?


Dining room tables we worked from (and we also sold the tables for a profit).

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

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring. 

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  Thes profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

Ginseng we grew in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.


Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.


Loquat leaf tea has become really important during the pandemic due to its respiratory strengthening qualities.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

There are specific places where property is especially inexpensive, now because previous owners do not know about the special qualities created by the pandemic.

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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