How to be a Professional Investor


Investing is gambling.  Until we admit this, we cannot invest like the pros.

However once we recognize that every investment is a bet, we can become a professional investor instead of a stock and bond gambler?

The fact is professional gamblers are not really gamblers.  They are investing pros who cash in on the imbalances of gamblers.  They invest in bets instead of stocks and bonds.

Professional gamblers, just like stock market pros, are unlike compulsive gamblers and investors.   They approach betting as a job and do not take the results personally.  They are mathematicians and calculators rather than addicts of chance and compulsion.

”Professional gamblers never go over the line,” says Kevin O’Neill, the deputy director of the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, an affiliate of the National Council on Problem Gambling that has a prominent role because of Atlantic City’s casino industry. ”They take carefully calculated risks and know exactly when they have an edge.”

”There are only a few games you can make money on in the long run,’ You can’t beat the casinos. In sports betting you just have to beat the spread,” the expected point difference between the favored team and the underdog.

Professional gambling, just like investing,  requires precision money management and meticulous record-keeping — practices in which most gamblers do not engage.

Professional gamblers know that a gambler must win 53% percent of the time to break even and 55% to 58% to earn a living.

Professional gamblers know how to diversify and how to cut their losses!

”People need to understand that the payoff is in the long term,” one professional gambler said, recalling that in one week of the 1985 professional football season, he lost all 13 of his bets. ”Along the way you’re going to take a thunderous beating, and if you don’t allocate your money, you’re going to be waiting tables. It’s like quicksand,” he said. ”I wouldn’t recommend this line of work to anyone. I’ve seen too many sad stories, too many people leaving this town broke.”

Rick Benson, who now runs a rehabilitation clinic for recovering gambling addicts said,”I spent five years in Las Vegas as a professional gambler,” Mr. Benson said. ”I suffered devastating financial repercussions, and I lost a 10-year romantic relationship.”

However, Mr. Benson acknowledges that he was not truly a professional.

”I was unable to gamble under control. I was chasing that feeling of winning rather than treating it like a business.”

This is the first step in becoming an investing pro.  Know that investing is gambling.  Then invest for profit, not for the feeling of winning.

That’s why our Purposeful Investing Course relies on three mathematical tools for professional investing:

  • Math that puts the odds in an investors favor, in the long term.
  • Math that provides three levels of trend analysis for accurate stop loss protection.
  • Math that shows investors how to diversify globally for protection against loss.

The Only 3 Reasons to Invest

garyheadshot

The stock market has always been the best place of places to protect and increase wealth over the long haul.   Yet it’s also been the worst place to lose money, a lot of it, quickly.

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

The goal of investing should be to stabilize our security, bring feelings of comfort and elimination of stress!

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quickly. We should not divest in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why my core stock portfolio consists of 19 shares and this position has hardly changed in three years.  During this time we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have traded only three times.

motif

This portfolio is built around a strategy that’s taught in my Purposeful Investing Course (Pi).  I call these shares my Pifolio.

This portfolio more or less matched the S&P 500 until May 2018.  Then a stronger US dollar made the portfolio look like it was falling behind.   This currency illusion creates a special opportunity we’ll view in a moment.

This portfolio above is based on stock price to value analysis built around 91 years of stock market data.

The value analysis is used to create a portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover  stock markets that are undervalued.  I have combined my 50 years of investing experience with the study of the mathematical market value analysis of Michael Keppler, CEO of Keppler Asset Management.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.  However because Keppler’s roots are in Germany (though he lives and operates from New York) and most of his funds registered for the European Union, Americans cannot normally access his data.

I was lucky to have crossed paths with Michael about 25 years ago, so I am one of the few Americans who receive this data and you will not find his information readily available in the US.

In a moment you’ll see how to remedy this fact.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler’s research that continually monitors 46 stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  Then Keppler takes market’s history into account.

Fwd: keppler

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael’s analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each good value (BUY) market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any one stock in that country is an attractive investment.  This eliminates the need for hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally held at the beginning of 2019.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore, Spain and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

iShares Country ETFs make it easy to invest in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

There is an iShares country ETF for every market.

You also receive two special reports.

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

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

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US 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 have 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 in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Silver Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  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, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and added how to use the Silver Dip Strategy with platinum.   The “Silver Dip 2019” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Silver Dip 2019” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

You also learn from the Value Investing Seminar, our premier course, that we have been conducting for over 30 years.  Tens of thousands of delegates have paid up to $999 to attend.  Now you can join the seminar online FREE in this special offer.

This three day course is available in sessions that are 10 to 20 minutes long for easy, convenient learning.   You can listen to each session any time and as often as you desire.

The sooner you hear what I have to say about current markets, the better you’ll be able to cash in on perhaps the best investing opportunity since 1982.

seminars

Tens of thousands have paid up to $999 to attend.

This year I celebrated my 51st anniversary of writing about global investing.  Our reports and seminars have helped readers have better lives, with less stress yet make fortunes during up and down markets for decades.  This information is invaluable to investors large and small because even small amounts can easily be invested in the good value shares we cover in our seminar.

Stock and currency markets are cyclical.  These cycles create extra profit for value investors who invest when everyone else has the markets wrong.  One special seminar session looks at how to spot value from cycles.  Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics.  Cycles create recurring profits.  Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 to 20 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns can create war.

The chart above shows the war – stock market cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WW III) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Details in the online seminar include:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios). His big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

Use time not timing.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

A 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of out performance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  The best ratio is normally 1.6 to 1.  We’ll sum up the strategy; how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on the times and each individual’s circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.

In this special offer, you can get this online seminar FREE when you subscribe to our Personal investing Course.

The “Nomophobia” Adaptation


We need to control how we adapt.

As the world changes, we do adapt.  Whether we like it or not, whether we mean to, when there is change, we change.

nomophobia

Outside influences will direct the pathways of our lives.  We can leave this to chance, or we can do our best to spot what’s going on and influence the direction we take.

I suspect to many unthinkingly let change overrule; hence the rise in opioid addiction and nomophobia.

Nomophobia is short for “no-mobile-phobia” and is explained in the Wall Street Journal article,  “Your Phone Is Almost Out of Battery. Remain Calm. Call A Doctor.”

The article says: Larry Rosen knows he has a problem. Headed home from work, the psychology professor said his heart skipped a beat when he glanced at his iPhone and suddenly realized his battery was at 7%. He had no charger. “You get this feeling: Oh my God, I’m lost,” he said.

Prof. Rosen, a past chairman of the psychology department at California State University, Dominguez Hills, knows whereof he speaks. He is a leading researcher in a new field of scientific inquiry that is attracting dozens of researchers across the globe and is increasingly being treated by clinical psychologists: smartphone anxiety.

Does your heart rate jump when your iPhone battery dips below 20%? You could be suffering from what some experts term “low-battery anxiety.”

Do your palms sweat when you have no access to cell service? You could have an acute case of “nomophobia”.  Short for no-mobile-phobia, the term describes the fear people can feel when they are out of mobile contact entirely.

Our success depends on the power to concentrate and integrate logic, intuition and experience. 

Concentration is success.

Concentration… in a way… is everything.  Here are some quotes about the vital importance of concentration.

“Concentration is my motto – first honesty, then industry, then concentration.” Andrew Carnegie

“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.” Alexander Graham Bell

“Concentration is the key to economic results. No other principle of effectiveness is violated as constantly today as the basic principle of concentration.” Peter F. Drucker

Yet there are obstacles to concentration such as an addiction to the internet.

The internet and email can distract and scatter concentration.

The internet provides temptation to skim… to bounce over everything and not to delve deeply into anything.

This problem is confirmed by a book review for “The Shallows”.

That review said: Carr—author of The Big Switch (2007) and the much-discussed Atlantic Monthly story “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”—is an astute critic of the information technology revolution. Here he looks to neurological science to gauge the organic impact of computers, citing fascinating experiments that contrast the neural pathways built by reading books versus those forged by surfing the hypnotic Internet, where portals lead us on from one text, image, or video to another while we’re being bombarded by messages, alerts, and feeds.  What are the consequences of new habits of mind that abandon sustained immersion and concentration for darting about, snagging bits of information? What is gained and what is lost?

The fact that excessive use of the internet is physically reconfiguring our brains is scary, like taking a drug!  The creation of mental habits that reduce our ability to focus and concentrate has profound implications… mostly bad.

Focused experience and information, focused beliefs,  focused values and focused determination are threads that weave happiness and success.

The internet is detracting from concentration and even retraining our thought process to a shallower level.

A reader who is a teacher sent this note of concern to me:  “As a reading teacher who works with children struggling to read, I have noticed a profound difference in those students who spend a lot of time surfing the Internet from those who don’t spend much time on the computer. The students who are addicted to surfing the Internet, text messaging, and video gaming, cannot seem to slow down enough to focus and read words on a printed page.  It is almost as if it is painful for them to read this way.”

I have created disciplines that provide the benefits of the internet without the addiction.

First  still use a flip top, old, wrapped with tape to keep it together.

Second, I forget to take it with me… often.

third, I often work on my laptop in places where I don’t have internet access.  I work in Text Edit or Word on my Mac and later load and review on the web.

At the farm I often set up a work station in the woods.  In Florida, I move to the end of the pool where there is no WiFi signal.

fourth, when I read the morning news (Wall Street Journal,  New York Times, MIT Technology Review, Economist and Consortium News),  I only allow myself to skim headlines and read just one article. 

Fifth, I refuse to click on ads or featured articles linked to what I am reading in the news.

Sixth I search one or two items that are about something I have absolutely no interest in to confuse the algorithms and keep the data coming to me confused.

Seventh, I stick to my meditation routine every day.

I want my mind clear, but want the systems that feed me information unable to put me in any too focused slot.

Finally, I created a process to diversify my routine with new ideas.  There is always something we do not know….no matter how much we concentrate.  Then I created a “New Information” file.   This holding file stores links to articles that catch my eye.  I set aside a specific time each day to concentrate just on these distractions.

Plus, because I love nature and physical activity, I find ways to to work outside that are meaningful to me.

I raise trout.

Technology provides the freedom to concentrate on the best of both worlds.   We can use the internet to live anywhere and earn everywhere.   At the same time we can avoid addiction by surrounding ourselves with physical events that are fulfilling in a lifestyle we desire.

Be Smarter With Less Stress

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

You can order the online Super Thinking Workshop here ($49.95)

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it for two months.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.

How Smart Phones Make Us Dumb


Smart phones can stifle accurate thinking, emotional growth and their use can be addictive and dangerous to our health.

smart phone

Image from the Good Housekeeping article “Smartphone health problems (1) shows how smart phones can add weight on the spinal column as we alter our posture.”

Recently a friend and chiropractor explained to me that a number of new diseases have been created by overuse of smart phones.  Some problems result from the added weight on the spinal column created by continually reading a smart phone.

Another is called “Nomophobia” or “no-mobile-phone phobia”.   For example, a study suggests that over half of the U.K., population fears losing or being without their phones at any given time.  Problems with repetitive use on the elbows and fingers have also grown.

A Wall Street Journal article “Take back your brain from social media (2)” examines how we can use the smart phone to become addicted  to information feedback that makes us dumb.

The article says: “Mindlessly checking Facebook makes you an awful lot like a lab rat.  When you check your phone, your brain gets its own little zing.   Are Facebook or Twitter “addictions”?  Though the emerging scientific research on social media doesn’t agree on that term, the evidence that we aren’t coping well is on display at dinner tables where everyone is staring at screens—and even at crosswalks, where distracted pedestrians walk into traffic.  Don’t just blame the millennials.  A new Nielsen study found Americans age 35 to 49 spend nearly seven hours a week on social media, more than younger generations.

A large part of the population wakes up every day with their iPhones next to the bed.  The first thing they see are the headlines.  All day they are fed data on social media like Twitter and Facebook.  These feeds are structured by algorithms to send only the interests and likes of each unique reader.  They only get the viewpoints they’re expecting.  There is a danger at a personal as well as national level when the news only shows us what we want to hear and see.

When the news only reinforces our beliefs, this creates mental and emotional inflexibility and deters any evolution in our thinking.  And stunts even stops our growth.

I resolved this problem by getting rid of my iPhone.   I still have a flip top but I only use it  as a telephone when away from home.  I seem to stay in touch with the world just fine.   I know a growing number of readers won’t take that option so here are some more tips on how to create “smart phone information temperance”.

Here are three tips that can help stop smart phone addiction.

#1: Limit the Triggers.  It’s easier to control bad habits if we simply don’t get started.   This is why I do not keep chocolate ice cream in our fridge!  Our brains are wired to voraciously feed on information so turn off any app notifications on your phone and computer.  Regain control by setting limits on when you will and won’t tune in.

#2: Separate Work and Play.  Don’t install Facebook or any social media app on your work devices.  Set times of the day when you will not look at social media.

#3: Stop algorithm click through expansion.  When you’re on Twitter or Facebook, it’s easy to read one article, then another, then another.  I do not use Twitter or Facebook, but do read the news online.  I limit my clicking on additional algorithm driven articles while reading an article to one click, one time a day.   Everyone should set their own limit but the more you decide what information to use, instead of the algorithms,  the more control over your thinking and freedom of thought you’ll have.

Realize that addiction is a chronic brain disorder, not simply a behavior problem.  Addiction is commonly associated with substance abuse, but behavioral addictions like gambling can be just as serious.

Though social media is still a socially accepted behavior, evidence is stacking up that it can be so habit forming that it is an addiction.  When a person is unable to consistently abstain from a behavior or substance, it is an addiction and there is usually a cost of mental and physical health.

Our report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere” investigates how our freedom is increasingly at the risk due to the Bayer-Monsanto merger and the way these firms will use social media in conjunction with AT&T.

Bayer and Monsanto have a working relationship with AT&T.   AT&T  has been creating a web of information control.  They have been taking control over internet portals, our phones, our TV system and content production plus they are working with social media gaming companies.  They control almost every aspect of everything that some of their customers see, hear, read and write.  The social gaming company can even use the addicting elements of social media to influence our thought… a lot.

Don’t let businesses that have their own agenda control yours.  Break the social media habit.  Control the destiny of your thought.

“If I Live Long Enough, I’ll Really Cash In Next Time”

Periods of good investing performance are always followed by periods that are bad.

Think about this…

The US dollar has risen over 50% above its lows of 2011.   The greenback is at its highest level versus the Chinese yuan since 2008.  India’s rupee is at an all-time low against the buck.  Other Asian currencies, the Singapore dollar and Malaysian ringgit have plunged to depths not seen since the financial crisis of 1997-98.  The euro, Mexican peso and Canadian dollar have crashed.  In other words, the US dollar is in a period of high performance.

What happens is the greenback is in a free fall.  Smart investors can cash in huge profits.

Yet there is a bigger economic problem that can ruin the purchasing power of your cash faster than you can imagine.

While the dollar was rising non US governments and businesses accumulated almost ten trillion dollars of debt denominated in US dollars.

The terror in this debt is that it acts as a destructive and very rapid financial amplifier.  Dollar debt is like a short position.  When the dollar rises, borrowers scramble to short-cover their position by selling their own currency.  This defeats the purpose of their hedging as it increases the strength of the dollar.  So they short even more.  Those short sales create an upward dollar spiral.  The buck rises higher and higher, based entirely on fear and speculation.

When that leverage energy is spent the currency stalls and plummets out of control… like now.

The last time we saw such a upwards spiral was from 1980 to 1985.  The dollar rose 50% in those five years.

Guess what?

Then it collapsed 50% in just two years.

The US dollar is in a similar position as at the beginning of Ronald Reagan’s first term in the 1970s.  This was a time of widening budget deficits, rising interest rates and a US dollar surge.  This created a problem then, as it does now, and creates huge opportunity for those in the know.

The rise of the dollar, the debt and the US stock market creates an especially dangerous conflict because Donald Trump wants to balance America’s trade.  A stronger dollar makes this impossible because it pushes up the cost of US material, US labor and US exports.

The overpriced dollar, the poor value of the US stock market (compared to other markets) create a dollar crisis and a special opportunity for you and me as investors.

“If I Live Long Enough, I’ll really cash in next time”.    I made this promise to myself in the 1980s.   A remarkable set of economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  I invested as much as I could handle then as the profits rolled in for about 17 years.  I had wished I could have invested more.

Now those circumstances are here again.

And I have…

invested more… a lot more… betting again the dollar.

The swollen stock market prices, huge dollar denominated debt and weakening dollar are three patterns that can create a fast 50% profit.

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.

There is a way to accumulate good value equities denominated in the following currencies of special strength, including the Euro, Canadian dollar, Singapore dollar, British pound, New Taiwan dollar and Chinese yuan.

The report reveals 21 special non dollar equities that have the greatest opportunity for safety and appreciation.

I kept the report short and simple, but include links to 153 pages of global stock market and asset allocation analysis so you can keep this as simple or as complex as you desire.

The report shows 22 good value investments and a really powerful tactic to use that allows you to inexpensively accumulate these bargains now even in very small amounts (even $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

Research shows that most people worry about having enough money if they live long enough.   I never thought of that.   I just wanted to live long enough to see the remarkable economic opportunity that started in 1980 come again so I could hit the jackpot.  This powerful profit wave has begun.  I have made the investment myself  suggest you investigate this in my report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More.”

Ritual of the Golden String


The Secret of the Golden String is an incredibly simple but profound tool for success.

Life is throwing change at an ever increasing pace.  Who could have imagined how the silicone chip, internet and cell phone would change the way we live?

The question of our economic survival and prosperity is not whether a crash and future bubbles will come or not.  The crash will come.  This crash will be followed by a bubble.  Only no one knows exactly when or how deep and for how long the disaster might go.

The only question is how will we react?  Our success or failure depends entirely on our behavior.

Since behavior relies almost entirely on habit, then anything we do to gain control of our habits gives us a huge advantage.

For example, one of the greatest natural health benefits any of us can make is incredibly simple:  chew our meals in a slightly different way.

Correct chewing releases nutrient molecules so energy from food is more quickly released and assimilated.  This allows the brain to recognize flavors and release the correct digestive juices for that food.  Proper chewing does even more because it stimulates the body’s ring muscles.

Ring muscles are the involuntary muscles which work together, contracting and relaxing simultaneously.  They also activate the respiratory system that all work together, so when we exercise one ring muscle, we exercise them all.   Ring Chewing works the jaw ring muscles which in turn activates the gastrointestinal system, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the musculoskeletal system and the urogenital system.  Ring muscles are also precursors that tone all other muscle groups and all the organs in the body.  When we chew correctly, we stimulate the ring muscles and consequently help exercise all our muscles and organs.

Eating fast increases the risk of choking, simple indigestion and gastroesophageal reflux disease which can lead to more serious problems including a narrowing of the oesophagus, bleeding, or the pre-cancerous condition Barrett’s oesophagus.

Fast eating also leads to weight gain.   One of over a dozen studies proves this fact.  An Osaka University study found that fast-eating men were 84 per cent more likely to be overweight.  Fast eating women were  twice as likely to be obese.

An Osaka University study found that fast-eating men were 84 per cent more likely to be overweight.  Women were twice as likely to be obese.

If reducing weight is as simple as chewing in a simple, but specific way, why isn’t anyone talking about it?

First, there is no real money to be made in this message… “Chew better and eat more slowly”.  This health benefit does create commercial success, so the establishment who are intent on grabbing as much money as they can from our poor health hate simple, free, easy health habits like this.

Our success or failure depends entirely on our behavior.  Our behavior depends on our habits and routines.

Second, changing habits is hard.   Many of us developed fast-eating habits as children desperate to get away from the dinner table.  The habit gets carried through to adulthood.

Chewing correctly is easy!  Breaking the habit of eating quickly and developing a correct chewing routine can be hard.  Bad habits are hard to break, the less disruptive, the harder they are.

Many people cannot even break serious destructive habits like drugs and alcohol.  The number of people who fail in rehab are so high that a catchphrase to explain the problem is “Relapse is part of recovery.”

We see this every day.  Someone leaves jail and enters rehab for the third or fourth or fifth time.  Failure to break bad habits has become depressingly familiar.   Even expensive rehab and 12-step models do not work.

Some rehab centers are as bad as hospital care, ruinously expensive and ineffective.  Celebrity facilities, can cost over $50,000 a month.   Even nonprofit facilities that don’t cater to Hollywood types are too costly for most people.  A typical center, a typical 28-day stay costs as much as $26,000.

Yet they fail again and again to break really bad, disruptive, obvious habits.

Non obvious, not so disruptive, habits like eating fast and chewing incorrectly can be even harder to break.

The Secret of the Golden String is a simple mental ritual that an Ecuadorian shaman taught Merri and me for creating positive habits.

Most of us lead or did lead hurried, high pressure, complex lives that shape our activity into brief time saving habits that dim our awareness.

Continual pressure and stress are not good for health in many ways.  Simple habits, such as eating too quickly, are among the hardest to break.  Simple solutions, such as the Ritual of the Golden String can create better health balance and most of all remind us three times a day to chew slowly and correctly so we exercise our ring muscles and entire body.

 The more complex the problem, the simpler the routine needs to be.  The report “Ritual of the Golden String” can help master correct chewing for weight loss, better health and avoidance of dangerous disease.  Learn how to break bad habits and create healthy rituals and routines with my report .

Worse than the French Connection


The movie “French Connection” told a story of  of addiction and drugs.   Now a new addiction, the connection addiction may be even worse overall. 

addiction

Both are addictive. Both can destroy our health and wealth.

The connection addiction may have terrible ramifications because it is legal and so wide spread.  The repeated use of anything that brings the brain the sensation of pleasure can, if allowed, leads to increased use that reduces the pleasure.  Over time the pleasurable event does not create the same pleasure.  Eventually, the event  provides no pleasure but is required to prevent withdrawal symptoms.   Then the event just makes us feel normal.  Continued use is to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

A New York Times article “Addicted to Distraction” provides a glimpse into cell phone, internet, connection addition.  Whether by cell phone or computer, too much information, acquired too quickly, reduces our ability to focus.

Continually checking emails, texts and surfing fragments our thoughts and reduces our ability to concentrate.

“The net is designed to be an interruption system, a machine geared to dividing attention,” Nicholas Carr explains in his book “The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains.”

Addiction is the relentless pull to a substance or an activity that becomes so compulsive it ultimately interferes with everyday life.  The brain’s craving for novelty, constant stimulation and immediate gratification creates something called a “compulsion loop” and needs more and more to get the same effect.

Having a routine of acquiring knowledge is good, up to a limit.   Like all things, medicine is dose.

Too much information overloads our working memory.   When we reach overload, our ability to transfer learning to long-term memory significantly deteriorates.  Our brains are like a full cup of water.  Once it is full any extra poured in, spills out.

In short spending too much time on the internet can make us less disciplined, less happy, less effective.

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

Hugh and I playing 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).
