Micro Business Opportunity in Ecological Products


Here are micro business opportunity with ecological products from Ted Tidwell who manufactures Purely Green and Bio Wash.

Merri and I have used Purely Green in our North Carolina and Florida homes as well as our rental units for almost twenty years.  We even shipped it to the  Ecuador hotel we purchased and ran for many years.  We use it to clean floors and everything thing else, as a shampoo, clothes and dish washing soap, car cleaner as well as ant and bug eradicator because it is so effective and is organic.

When Ted added BioWash, an agricultural solution that has Purely Green as its base, we used this at our North Carolina farm and Florida orange grove.   You can see the results below.

Purely Green 25 is registered as an organic pesticide, but in addition to being effective both Purely Green and BioWash products are also good for the environment.  This is because they remove insects as a degreaser, instead of as a poison.

Another environmental benefit is that BioWash Soil Amendment was tested by SGS Labs and qualified for the EPA’s most prestigious rating: “Readily Biodegradable.”

Over the last tow decades we have found a multitude of uses for these products… even for fishing!

Purely Green for fishing?

Ted writes: Gary Reid, Naples, Florida, discovered a new benefit from Purely Green… soaring fish yields!

He plans to market it with his private label.

The youtube video is of his second successful fishing trip.

Enjoy. They are certainly having a good time.

Gary we would appreciate other fishermen/ladies testing and sending back reports about using Purely Green as a Fishing Lure Enhancer.

Comment:  The idea of fish being attracted to PurelyGreen sounds incredible.

However, so many other unexpected benefits have appeared, we are beginning to think anything is possible.

purely-green

Cristian Delano observed that crabs seemed to be attracted by Purely Green. It may offer enhanced yields for crab and lobster fishermen.

This is the solution that not only produced a bumper oat harvest in one of the worst droughts in Texas history, the oats tested at double the normal protein content!

It is also the solution that leaves no visible trace of oil. (Others which “disperse” leave oil residues.)

Preliminary tests indicate that Purely Green Oil Clean breaks up PCBs, which is one of the most challenging environmental contaminants.

I am amazed and humbled to be involved in formulating such a gift.

We have created a program with Ted Tidwell so those who are interested can become distributors of Biowash and Purely Green. 

A number of readers have created a successful distributorships.

Many of our readers and subscribers have a desire to have their own business.  Our courses and seminars will help make your business ideas work better, but this is a specific opportunity for those who do not have a business idea can join in our turnkey micro business program.

For details on ways to be a distributor contact Ted Tidwell at biowashted@yahoo.com

Food For Thought and Better Health With Purely Green

Merri and I take the cleanliness of our food supply seriously.

In North Carolina we eat a lot of wild food and vegetables we grow in our garden.

gary-scott-farming

surrounding our house with lettuce of all types, greens and herbs.

gary-scott-farming

Our greenhouse allows us to start our planting early.

In the spring nature provides us with dandelions and a wonderful lettuce (called branch lettuce) that grows wild in the creek later to be supplemented by Bee Balm and Echinacea for tea.

Here is echinacea and tomatoes growing in front of our meditation room.

Here is a bit of our harvest.

gary-scott-farming

This time of year, we harvest our grapes and collect apples from our many apple trees.  We have acres of…

gary-scott-farming

wild blackberries in the summer and wild mountain strawberries in the late spring.

gary-scott-farming

Our chickens provide us with summer meals like this.

We also have a greenhouse in Florida and start the gardening process again in winter.

In addition we have citrus, grapes, figs, blueberries and loquats that provide us with Florida fruit throughout the year.

These crops, plus trout in North Carolina, bass and panfish from our Florida lake allow us to eat less commercially grown food.

This gardening is fulfilling, provides gentle exercise and we find picking our own food especially satisfying.  Plus there are some enormous health benefits.

Dr. John Douillard at Lifespa.com (1) points out that “Environmental pollutants, cancer causing chemicals, plastics, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial waste overwhelm the body’s natural detoxification pathways.  Toxic cloud plumes from burning coal cover most of the United States and lace even our organic vegetables with heavy metals. Pesticides and preservatives have infiltrated their way into almost all the food consumed in America and can store in the body’s fat, including the brain, for years. Industrial wastes have permeated our ground water and can enter our body by simply washing our organic veggies with tap water.  Over time these stored chemicals undermine our immunity, render us susceptible to disease, infection and premature aging.”

This is why Merri and I clean our our vegetables and fruit, especially those we purchase in the store, with Purely Green 25.

I asked our friend, Ted Tidwell, who manufactures Purely Green to explain how this works.

Ted replied:  In order for pesticides to remain on the plant and effective during rains, they are encased in oil.  An ordinary vegetable wash that does not dissolve oil will permit pesticidal residues to remain on the plant and be ingested.

PurelyGreen is powerful enough to dissolve crude oil and tar, so it easily dissolves the oil and removes the poisonous pesticides.  Ted

Merri and I use Purely Green 25, diluted at the rate of two (2) ounces per quart of water is our preferred method for cleaning purchased fresh fruit and vegetables.

We simple spray our fruits and vegetables thoroughly and generously with Purely Green and let it penetrate for several minutes before rinsing.

This removes the oil encrusted toxic chemical pesticides that ordinary veggie washes cannot remove.

This also improves the taste by removing the oil and toxins and extends the freshness and edibility for several additional days.

Purely Green is certified carcinogen free.  Many consumers save the cost of expensive organic produce by removing the insecticides with Purely Green.  This organic cleaner/degreaser helps the environment and poses no threat to humans, animals or marine life.

Recently Ted sent this note to me:  EcoCert International has certified BioWash 25, BioWash 100 and BioWash Soil Amendment as ORGANIC.  This achievement will help enrich hundreds of distributors and thousands of organic growers.

ECOCERT (2) is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world.  The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade Standards.

Congratulations to Ted.  It is great to see other organizations confirm what we have known and have let readers know for decades.

There is also a huge financial savings.  Three quarts of 409 household cleaner delivered by Amazon.com is $16.98 or about $5.66 per quart before shipping.  You then have shipping costs or have to pay to be an Amazon Prime customer for free shipping.  But $5.66 per quart is about the best you’ll get for 409 household cleaner.

One gallon of Purely Green 25 is $96.  This is a concentrate that is mixed 15 to 1 (two ounces per appx. quart 30 ounces of water).  That gallon of Purely Green creates 64 quarts of ready to use at less than $2.00 per quart. 

There is one drawback to the Purely Green products, a high cost of shipping.   Ted does not offer Purely Green in stores and Fedex charges quite a bit for shipping.  The shipping, for a gallon averages out around $26 a gallon.  So the Purely Green and shipping are $122.

If you were to purchase the same amount of a traditional non organic house cleaner (such as Clorox 409) from Amazon.com,  you would pay $266.24 more.  

You can order one gallon here and the shipping is included.

One Gallon of Purely Green 25 $122. Buy Purely Green 25, one gallon

Purely Green

We are bombarded daily with toxicities of every sort.  We see toxic news.  We are sold and served toxic food.  Much of our water supply contains poisons.  There are chemicals in the air.  Anything we can do to reduce the pollution that gets in our bodies can help us get and maintain natural health.  I hope that sharing this program for Purely Green will help create a cleaner world.

Health Benefits by Pre-Purification


One key to natural health is purification.   One effective tactic in purification is to avoid putting toxicity in or on the body in the first place.

Merri and I do this in numerous ways.  We avoid commercial soaps and deodorants, using essential oils for bathing and cleansing instead.  We do not take prescribed pharmaceuticals.  We live in places where our water supply comes from pure, deep mountain springs and is not polluted by municipalities.

We also clean everything: our house, our car, our dishes, our clothes with Purely Green 25 an organic cleaner/degreaser, that like all 1st Envirosafety Inc. cleaning and degreasing solutions, is 100% bio-degradable, non-toxic, non-carcinogen, non-fuming and odorless.

Purely Green

For almost 20 years our website has endorsed various degreasing products made by 1st Envirosafety such as Purely Green.

Purely Green is manufactured by a subscriber who became a friend of many years, Ted Tidwell.  We started using Purely Green when  I discovered its degreasing prowess after getting pitch on my hands from a Christmas Tree.  Purely Green dissolved the sticky pitch off my hands.  Ted called his degreasing product “Ecologically Safe Colloidal Degreaser” at that time.  To save having to write so many words, we simply called it “Ted’s Stuff”.

Since that time, I have used various types of Ted’s Stuff in much more than cleaning.  The degreaser dissolved the Wooly Adelgid blight off our hemlock trees at our farm.  We have saved hundreds of these trees.  A modified agricultural product (called Biowash) that became a fertilizer booster, helped double the yield in our orange grove.  I spray all my garden plants with Biowash.  We took Purely Green to Ecuador to clean our hotel and apartments.  We helped set up distributors there and around the world.  We use it to clean all our rental properties in North Carolina and Florida.

Recently I was asked if Purely Green is recommended for home use to remove residual chemicals and pesticides purchased at supermarkets or fruit stands.

Merri and I use Purely Green 25, diluted at the rate of two (2) ounces per quart of water is our preferred method for cleaning purchased fresh fruit and vegetables.

We simple spray our fruits and vegetables thoroughly and generously and let it penetrate for several minutes before rinsing.

This removes the oil encrusted toxic chemical pesticides that ordinary veggie washes cannot remove.

This also improves the taste by removing the oil and toxins and extends the freshness and edibility for several additional days.

One gallon of Purely Green 25 is $96.  This is a concentrate that is mixed 15 to 1 (two ounces per appx. quart 30 ounces of water).  That gallon creates 64 quarts of ready to use at $1.50 per quart.

You can get the price per quart even lower with a case of 4 gallons of the Organic Cleaner/Degreaser, which is a weaker concentration of Purely Green. This  four gallon case of 7 to 1 concentration sells for $189 and creates 128 quarts of ready to use cleaner at $1.47 per quart.

You get the best price of all with the 4 gallon case of 15 to 1 Purely Green 25. The price is  $358 but it makes 256 quarts at $1.40 per quart.

If you were to purchase the same amount of a traditional non organic house cleaner (such as Clorex 409) from Amazon.com,  you would pay $266.24 more.  

There is one drawback to the Purely Green products, a high cost of shipping.  The shipping, for a gallon averages out around $12.98 a gallon and for four gallons around  $37.21. Ted does not offer Purely Green in stores and Fedex charges quite a bit for shipping. To overcome this personally,  some years ago I purchased an entire pallet and stored it at our farm. This is how much we believe in and use this cleaner.

To see if I can help overcome this dilemma of shipping cost, I have organized a program with Ted to lower the cost so it can be shipped to you free.

I am conducting a test.  You can order anyone of these two options via our website.  Ted has provided us a lowered price so we’ll submit these as bulk orders.  The savings is enough that we’ll pay all the shipping (and any tax if applicable).  You save $12.98 shipping on a gallon and $37.21 shipping on four gallons.  If  you, our valued readers respond, and want this product we’ll make it a regular offer at a discounted price.

You can order one gallon or a four gallon case here.

One Gallon of 15 to 1 concentration Purely Green 25 $96.  Save $12.98 shipping

Four gallon case of the 7 to 1 concentration Organic/Degreaser $197.   Save $37.21 shipping.

Four gallon case of 15 to 1 Purely Green 25  $358.  Save $37.21 shipping.

Purely Green

We are bombarded daily with toxicities of every sort.  We see toxic news.  We are sold and served toxic food.  Much of our water supply contains poisons.  There are chemicals in the air.  Anything we can do to reduce the pollution that gets in our bodies can help us get and maintain natural health.  I hope that sharing this program for Purely Green will help create a cleaner world.

Save With Ecuador Shamanic Healthcare

Here’s why concepts from Ecuador shamanic healthcare is better than the hospital.

Few places can destroy health and ruin a lifetime of savings faster than a hospital.  We are at risk from pocketbook surgery and the incredibly dangerous “Secret Chargemaster”.   See below why chargemasters are normally kept secret and how to gain protection from their abuse.

Modern American health care is under pressure.  Despite horrendous costs, the system is faltering.  At times the care is more dangerous than the illness.  For example hospitals are the worst place to have a heart attack.  The University of North Carolina, did a study and found that 40% of the patients who had attacks in the hospital died before being discharged.  (The study compared that with only a 4% death rate for those who had heart attacks outside the hospital.)

Plus it was recently revealed that medical endoscopy scopes in hospitals were infecting patients with deadly drug-resistant bacteria.  The facts about this had not been previously disclosed.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that hospital-acquired infections alone kill 99,000 people each year.  Here is an even worse hospital mortality fact.

CDC Stats

Click on image.

The image above shows a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Hospital-acquired infections alone kill 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital is 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 because of the secrets in the Chargemaster and the people who do 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.

hospital bill

The hospital bill above is part of a story about a $110,000 infection and why hospital “Chargemasters” are often secret.  This story tells how one person with resistant devastating infection ran up a $110,000 hospital bill only to find that Medicare would only pay $2,300 from treatment of infection.

Secret of the Chargemasters

Being in a hospital can kill as well as cure.  There are odds on that.  What is more certain is that hospitals can kill our finances.

The ‘average’ cost of hospital care is rising because the leading hospitals are front runners in figuring out how to amass market power so they can  raise prices and decrease competition.  A codeine pill that costs $20 at a hospital costs 50 cents at Rite-Aid or Walgreens.  Hospitals have “chargemasters” a price list created by each hospital, that typically has more than ten thousand entries, so almost nothing — even an aspirin, a bag of IV fluid, or a visit from a physical therapist to help a patient get out of bed — is free.  However, those lists are usually secret.

Hospital Failure

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own.  The very people, institutions and establishments that  we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health.  There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient shamanic wisdom can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years Merri and I have lived around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They are concise and to the point.  In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our shamanic health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy –  self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.  They all contains this common Ecuador weight loss refrain.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

“Sunski” combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

shaman

The “Sunski” report has been 40 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you…  years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Especially when time is NOT on our side.  We’ve already done the hard work pulling together the information we all need to create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

*  A complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment  to tell you the truth).

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

The nutrition report also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Secret of the Hogberry

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

More than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear.  Body fat.

Studies showed that those who were most active have a 25% lower chance of developing cancer because reduced body fat is possible pathway to lowering cancer risk.  Time Magazine has some good information on the relationship between exercise and reducing cancer.  Have a look below if you want to research more deeply (1).

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.  I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat and cancer?   Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body.  Our blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system.   Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them.  The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble).  This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways.  When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead.   These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation.  Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

The way to avoid this storage of deadly toxicity is to keep stress down, while digestion and detoxification pathways remain good.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat not primarily for weight loss, (though you will lose weight) but for purification, you can turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy.   Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins.  As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

Intermittent fasting is one way to get the body to burn fat.  There is a way of eating that helps reduce weight, improve energy and purify the body as it returns to a state of natural health.

This is a simple easy way to improve and restore feeling good, but works best when combined with better nutrition, moderate exercise and a purification program that helps make sure that the body is not overwhelmed with too much purification at once.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features one special tea so an intermittent fasting routine becomes doable and enjoyable.

The Key is in the Hogberry

Intermittent fasting is guaranteed to work, if you have even reasonable nutrition, moderate physical activity and stick with it.  The problem is in the sticking.  When the brain is hooked on metabolizing sugar it can be very demanding.   When we try going an extended period without a sugar, the brain will have a hissy fit and demand that we eat or drink something sweet or starchy or alcoholic.

Sticking through a fast just does not work when the brain pulls out its bag of tricks, from sweet whispers (just one chocolate won’t hurt- but it will!)  all the way to chills sweats and dizziness.   Intermittent fasting, without help, can require enormous discipline that most of us cannot maintain long enough.

I know, I tried intermittent fasting several times and failed.  Then I accidentally stumbled across the secret of the Hogberry that not only stops hunger but more importantly speeds up the process of switching from sugar metabolism to fat metabolism AND assists in the purifying process.  Once I tried using this support for the pancreas (among other things),  intermittent fasting became satisfying and enjoyable.  I am passing 45 days in this routine, and the steady energy just gets better and better.  I am not minding the reduced weight and better fitting clothing either!

“The FAST Way to Better Health” explains how intermittent fasting is not real fasting.  One does not stop eating with an intermittent fast, not even for a day.  You learn why this is such a healthy way to lose weight and detoxify fat cells to reduce risks of cancer, heart disease diabetes and senility.

More important you learn how to feel better almost from the very first day.  Reduce stress, gain smooth steady energy without 10:30am and 3:00pm  droops. Find out how to avoid being hungry right after you eat and how to make the cravings for sweets and junk food all but disappear.

I will send you this report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my Shamanic Natural Health reports described below.

This is the only way to attain this report.  Intermittent fasting can make your life better. It works best when you use the nutritional, exercise and purification tips outlined in these three reports.  As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure  that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you.  The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made a special offer.

I have created three shamanic health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.

The Secret Chargemaster Revealed

Few places can destroy health and ruin a lifetime of savings faster than a hospital.  We are at risk from pocketbook surgery and the incredibly dangerous “Chargemaster”.   See below why chargemasters were normally kept secret, how a 2018 federal law requires their disclosure and how to gain protection from their abuse.

How can it be that medical costs are so high? Why is it so difficult to figure out the charge for a medical procedure?

The government in trying to help answer these questions began requiring hospitals from Jan. 1, 2019 to post their chargemaster lists.

These enormous lists of products and services ranging from a single aspirin up to a complicated surgery does little to answer these questions.

This very weak attempt to create transparency only provides data that is difficult to decipher and is mind-boggling for the consumer.

Chargemasters can include tens of thousands of items and procedures, with technical names and abbreviations that few can understand.

Plus when one goes into the hospital no one knows exactly what items and procedures will be necessary since treatment can vary widely based on the age and health and condition.

So listing the chargemaster isn’t helpful or meaningful, but simply gives hospitals one more excuse for outrageous costs… “but we listed what these costs”.

Modern American health care is under pressure.  Despite horrendous costs, the system is faltering.  At times the care is more dangerous than the illness.  For example hospitals are the worst place to have a heart attack.  The University of North Carolina, did a study and found that 40% of the patients who had hearts attacks in the hospital died before being discharged.  (The study compared that with only a 4% death rate for those who had heart attacks outside the hospital.)

Plus it was recently revealed that medical endoscopy scopes in hospitals were infecting patients with deadly drug-resistant bacteria.  The facts about this had not been previously disclosed.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that hospital-acquired infections alone kill 99,000 people each year.  Here is an even worse hospital mortality fact.

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 because of the secrets in the chargemaster and the people who do 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.

hospital bill

The hospital bill above is part of a story about a $110,000 infection and why hospital “chargemasters” are often secret.  This story tells how one person with resistant devastating infection ran up a $110,000 hospital bill only to find that Medicare would only pay $2,300 from treatment of infection.

Secret of the Chargemasters

Being in a hospital can kill as well as cure.  There are odds on that.  What is more certain is that hospitals can kill our finances.

The ‘average’ cost of hospital care is rising because the leading hospitals are front runners in figuring out how to amass market power so they can  raise prices and decrease competition.  A codeine pill that costs $20 at a hospital costs 50 cents at Rite-Aid or Walgreens.  Hospitals have “chargemasters” a price list created by each hospital, that typically has more than ten thousand entries, so almost nothing — even an aspirin, a bag of IV fluid, or a visit from a physical therapist to help a patient get out of bed — is free.  However, those lists are usually secret.

Hospital Failure

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own.  The very people, institutions and establishments that  we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health.  There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient shamanic wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They are concise and to the point.  In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our shamanic health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy –  self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

“Sunski” combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

shaman

The “Sunski” report has been 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you…  years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Especially when time is NOT on our side.  We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment  to tell you the truth).

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

This report on nutrition also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.  The second report looks at purification and detoxification.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

For example this third report unveils one exercise that is a nutritional trick  that has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  The report  reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

Part of the report focuses on how to have financial balance in investing and business so you can remain independent.

The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Oxygenation-Coordination:  Learn how to gain extra oxygen with the Llama Walk.

Purification: We look at Andean purification herbs and purifying teas.

Energy Boosting: Eating balanced, correctly prepared organic food and drinking herbal teas designed for body type and body imbalances.

Occupation: Physical labor, suited to your body type and condition range from gardening and animal care to path building and clearing the woods.

Relaxation: Learn how Meditation, L-Thianine and Baroque Music enhance thinking and relieve stress.

Body Types Made EZ:  Learn how they cause and influence nine body types and their imbalances.  Discover seven easy ways to determine your body type and how to keep it in balance.

Healthy Eating Made EZ:  Gain delicious, power packed weight reducing recipes from easy to obtain products from super market foods. Coddle Yourself Egg-High Protein Country Cottage Pie-Low Carb-Veggie Chile & Spaghetti- Weightless Bread-High Mountain Pure Protein Quinoa-Better Oatmeal of Steel- Several Soups for Super Strength-Berry Good Crunch Treat and Waist Less Apple Crumble are just a few.

Exercise for Strength and Better Health Made EZ:  Medicine is dose.  Too much exercise is as bad or worse as not enough. Learn how to let comfort be your exercise guide. Move with momentum-some exercises activate all muscles and provide the benefit of leverage, momentum and convenience so 12 minutes of exercise a day is enough. Blend body and mind-Alpha exercises take you into the zone so you win from the inside out.  Spin and bend-blend exercise secrets from India, the Andes and the East for easy and better health.  The Gentle Touch-if you have to breathe through the mouth you have done too much.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

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.

Gain Profit Beyond the Dollar


I love our business when profits go beyond the US dollar.

For the past 18 or 19 years, we have written about and promoted Biowash and Purely Green, a bio degradable cleaner we originally called Ted’s Stuff after the manufacturer, Ted Tidwell.   We have done this without pay and without any concern for the money because our self publishing business has been healthy enough for us to write about things we believe in without regard to financial return.  Yet benefits beyond the money have been many.

hemlock adelgid

The hemlock (left of the larger pine) behind one of our farmhouses was dying ten years ago from the Wooly Adelgid blight.  We discovered that Biowash dissolves the cocoons.  We began spraying the hemlocks we could reach and today hundreds of trees that would have otherwise died are green, healthy and strong.

See how thousands of hemlock trees have survived in Appalachia. Click here

See how Bio wash was used in Ecuador. Click here and Click here

See how Biowash was used in our orange groves in Florida. Click here.

See how to avoid one of the biggest health scams of all by using Purely Green as our hand cleaner, dishwashing liquid, laundry soap and for general cleaning.  Click here.

Now Ted Tidwell sent me a note saying that the Indian government has certified Purely Green as Ayurvedic medicine.  A research university documented Soil Amendment as killing 99% of mosquito larva within 24 hours. The 1% that survived and hatched could not fly. The amount needed is only one gallon per 50,000 gallons of water.

In future messages we’ll look at how Ayurvedic medicine can provide great health benefits at a low cost. However the point in this message is how much good  a person can accomplish while earning with their own self publishing business!

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).

Bio Stimulant Business in Ecuador


Ecuador Bio Stimulant Business for Sale

Readers who have been reading our site for decades know that I have been raving about Bio Wash and Purely Green aka  “Ted’s Stuff” since the 1990s.   This is an amazing and versatile product, a bio degradable nano degreaser that replaces all kinds of harsh chemicals.  We have used it to spray our hemlocks in North Carolina for protection again the Wooly Adelgid blight.   We use it for numerous reasons on our orange grove in Florida.  We wash our dishes and floors and car and dogs.   We have used this as our #1 cleaner at our hotel in Ecuador.  This is a great product good for the environment and an amazing cleaner and more.

Yet no one had ever been able to describe what it was until recently when  it became classified as a bio stimulant. (1)

biostimulant

The European Biostimulant Industry Council (2) has been promoting the biostimulant industry and the role of plant biostimulants in making agriculture more sustainable and to agree a sector definition of biostimulants:

The General Definition of Biostimulants

Agricultural biostimulants include diverse formulations of compounds, substances and other products that are applied to plants or soils to regulate and enhance the crop’s physiological processes, thus making them more efficient.  Biostimulants act on plant physiology through different pathways than nutrients to improve crop vigour, yields, quality and post-harvest shelf life/conservation.

Biostimulants foster plant growth and development throughout the crop life cycle from seed germination to plant maturity in a number of demonstrated ways, including but not limited to:

* Improving the efficiency of the plant’s metabolism to induce yield increases and enhanced crop quality;
* Increasing plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses;
* Facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use;
* Enhancing quality attributes of produce, including sugar content, colour, fruit seeding, etc.;
* Regulating and improving plant water balance;
* Enhancing certain physicochemical properties of the soil and fostering the development of complementary soil microorganisms.

What distinguishes biostimulants from traditional crop inputs?

Biostimulants operate through different mechanisms than fertilizers, regardless of the presence of nutrients in the products.
Biostimulants differ from crop protection products because they act only on the plant’s vigour and do not have any direct actions against pests or disease.

Crop biostimulation is thus complementary to crop nutrition and crop protection.

I am proud to have helped create a Bio Wash bio stimulant distributor in Ecuador.

Bio Wash Beats Drought


 Bio Wash Beats Drought

This site has reviewed many benefits of the nano technology that is used in the Purely Green and Bio Wash bio degradable cleaners and fertilizer booster.

We have used this ourselves in so many ways for more than a decade… brushing our teeth, in the bath, cleaning the dishes, all household and farm equipment degreasing and cleaning, cleaning, to kill the Wooly Adelgid blight on our hemlocks in North Carolina and to boost production of our orange grove.

Then last winter we were able to tell how Bio Wash also helps plants absorb moisture.  We wrote:

Now it appears that Bio Wash may help with droughts as well.

Ted sent this note: These photos from a Texas farmer show his granddaughter in…

oats

the oat field that prospered during a serious drought.

oats

During the present drought in Texas, his BioWashed oats survived and prospered in abundance.

The farmer advised that at harvest time, his oats were chest high on his 6’2″ frame.

With the onset of even more serious drought conditions across North America I am posting this advertisement from Ted Tidwell as a community service.

August/2012
EMERGENCY
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!
ACT QUICKLY TO SAVE DROUGHT STRICKEN CROPS!
 
Farmers across America are threatened with disaster unless quick action is taken. Crops are dying. Entire incomes are in jeopardy. Food prices could soar.

Prior experience indicates that BioWash may offer the solution to the crisis.  Read On!

During the worst drought Texas ever experienced …… Cattle Rancher Alton Holt BioWashed his 90 acre oat crop. While all neighboring growers were losing their oats, Alton enjoyed his highest oat yield ever experienced on that acreage AND increased his oat protein content by 8 to 10 percentage points.

What was the difference between Alton’s crop success and his neighbors’ crop failure?  BioWash!!

Alton sprayed his oats with BioWash 100, diluted at the rate of five (5) ounces BioWash per 30 gallons of water, per acre.  After spraying he went traveling for several months. Upon his return, he was amazed.

We cannot guarantee that all drought-stricken crops can be saved by BioWash or that all farmers will enjoy Alton Holt’s phenomenal results.  However, at an investment of less than $6.00 per acre, how can you pass up the opportunity?

Take an opportunity to review Alton Holt’s pictures and the oat protein results after applying BioWash.  Then give us a call to discuss how BioWash may help your crops survive this current, unprecendented drought.

THE PROOF IS IN THE OATS!

Without BioWash, the oat fields adjacent to Alton Hope’s BioWashed field were completely unproductive. The fields were opened to browsing by cattle because there were insufficient oats to harvest.

After BioWashing, Alton Holt’s 90 acres produced the largest oat crop yield ever. The oats also reflected the highest protein content Holt had ever experienced. All this DESPITE the severe Texas drought conditions in 2011.

Visit www.fertilizerboosters.com for more information.
OAT PROTEIN INCREASED – DESPITE DROUGHT CONDITIONS!
The average normal crude protein range for oats is between 13.70% and 23.82%.

Alton Holt reported that his oats in the past have contained about 16% protein.  After BioWashing his 90 acres, lab analysis reflected Alton’s oats to contain upwards of 24% protein!

Iowa farmer Bob Treloar concluded that one of the best defenses against drought is the BioWash success in creating larger, stronger root systems.

For increased yields and higher profits, even during drought conditions, try BioWash today!  You can order BioWash from our website at www.fertilizerboosters.com or call us at 239-283-1222 (M-F from 9:00-5:00).

Capture “Cation” Profits


Capture Cation Profits

Cations can bring financial stability in an unstable world.

Our mission is to help readers embrace change and turn it to their favor.  One way is through investing in value real estate. Another is to invest in agriculture.

L1000290

Golden orange from our grove.  Better than gold in many ways.

When these two ideas come together (the two ways of value investing) and are boosted by a catalyst profits can be explosive.

Our orange groves are an example.   We purchased the grove at a good value due to Florida’s real estate crash.

The price of Florida oranges rose because of agricultural inflation and because the FDA halted all imports of foreign orange juice. The blockade was prompted by fears that some foreign orange juice — especially juice imported from Brazil — contained traces of carbendazim, a fungicide banned in the United States.

The news of the ban pushed OJ futures to an all-time high.

The catalyst was Bio Wash.  We have more than doubled yields in our grove as the price of oranges has risen since spraying with Bio Wash.

We have been promoting Bio Wash and its formative solutions (we used to call it Ted’s Stuff) because it is such a great product and is wonderful for the environment.

We use for all our household cleaning. I brush my teeth with it.  We spray our Hemlocks at our farm in North Carolina to eradicate the Wooly Adelgid blight and we spray our crops there.

So it was logical that we also sprayed our groves.  (Merri and I have been dedicated users of Ted’s Stuff for over 15 years.)

Now there is even more good news about this product that might be a catalyst for a way to gain extra earnings (or better gardens and crops) as you help the environment.

The news is spelled in the word Cation.

To understand the science we start with an Ion.

An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving it a net positive or negative electrical charge.

An anion with more electrons than protons, giving it a net negative charge (since electrons are negatively charged and protons are positively charged).

Wikipedia says this about cations and soil:  A cation is an ion with fewer electrons than protons, giving it a positive charge.

In soil science, cation-exchange capacity (CEC) is the maximum quantity of total cations, of any class, that a soil is capable of holding, at a given pH value, for exchanging with the soil solution. CEC is used as a measure of fertility, nutrient retention capacity, and the capacity to protect groundwater from cation contamination. It is expressed as milliequivalent of hydrogen per 100 g (meq+/100g), or the SI unit centi-mol per kg (cmol+/kg). The numeric expression is coincident in both units.

Clay and humus have electrostatic surface charges that attract the solution ions, and hold them. This holding capacity varies for the different clay types and clay-blends present in soil, and is very dependent of the proportion of clay+humus that is present in a particular soil. A way to increase CEC is to favor the formation of humus.

The higher the CEC, the higher the soil fertility.

In short, if you have higher CEC your crops grow better. Bio wash increases the CEC.

Bio Wash protects against frost and really made some readers happy recently due to the late cold snap up north.   In North Carolina we call this a Blackberry freeze (because it ruins the blackberry crop).  The local gardening wisdom in our area is plant potatoes, onions, lettuce and radishes on Good Friday… but wait until Mother’s Day to plant the rest of the crops.

That wisdom is to avoid the blackberry frost so the early bird planters this year were clobbered… except those using bio wash.

Last week our front yard in NC looked like this… in April!  (Now you know why we are still in Florida!)

Bio Wash promotes growth. We have been receiving reports like this: Good news.  Tanya Reid, NY, BioWashed 35 acres of peach blooms for a grower and saved them from freezing in 26F. cold.  Tanya’s neighbor who is a farmer who grows plums, peaches, apples, raspberries, gardens flowers everything…… called our farmer who had success with bio wash freeze protection and is meeting with him today.

Harry the farmer said he’ll show him documentation and ride around his property to prove his success……….AWESOME………. we are very excited to say the least….I will be ordering more product I am sure this week like a 55gallon or a ton of gallons.

Tanya also told me this morning that Harry our test farmer told her he was very frustrated about the bad freezing weather coming  on the 24th of march.

Now he is the center of attention. Another farmer was coming over to look at his trees and marvelous success that has never happened in 165 years!

God is working. Its not just about money. Its about helping people be successful and bringing farmers together to increase their potential for higher yield and profit. Oh BABY AMAZING “UNBELIEVABLE

I’M SO EXCITED AND THINK I LIKE IT. I’M ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL.

Another wrote:  Justin Wilkinson, Washington, reported three to five  full-sized ears per stalk. Now he is planning tests involving money-saving reductions in fertilizer costs. He also enjoyed an extra month of extended grass season, thus reducing the cost of buying hay for his dairy.

George Behlin,, NY, reported three full sized ears and one stalk with  four in his garden. Plus, amazing yields of beans and tomatoes.

Henry Morgan, Baton Rouge, reduced his fertilizer by over 50% and reported his greatest vegetable garden in 10 years.

Dr. Treloar, Iowa, reported general 20% yield increases on his test crops and  had amazing results.  He sprayed some wild blackberries and WOW!The berries grew larger than normal,tasted sweeter,and kept producing longer into the fall which they never done before.Also the vines kept growing until Xmas.

The patch he didn’t spray behaved  normally, regular size berries and the vines died by the end of October. A young lilac bush that normally has 3-7 flowers/season has 17 new buds forming! Tomatoes plants went crazy.We bought two plants of each type, one to be treated and one not treated.the treated plants produced about 50% more tomatoes.Also as the plants grew shoots, I pinched them off, soaked them in your formula,replanted them(this was in September) and they grew about a foot and produced a few baby sized tomatoes.AMAZING!

Bio Wash may also help resist drought.  We received this:  Alton Holt, Texas, enjoyed record oat yields in spite of last seasons extended drought. He applied no fertilizer nor used irrigation. His protein content measured 24% to 26%, compared to the normal 14% to 16%.

How does Bio Wash work?  Many highly trained agronomists are puzzled by the “out-of-the-box” yet obvious effectiveness.  The basis appears to be the incredibly small size of the sub-atomic particles that are able to penetrate and deliver nutrients to the plant.  It is not a fertilizer but apparently increases  the cation exchange capacity, electro-magnetic action of the roots and photosynthesis in the leaves.

This can improve the yield and increase the BRIX plus as a huge bonus is a  natural insect deterrent because it is an exceptionally gentle yet powerful degreaser,  it dissolves the lipid cellular membrane of small, soft bodied funguses and insects.

Bio Wash has secured Florida state permission to label our “Purely Green (PG) Oil Clean” as a soil amendment and Cation Exchange Stimulant.  To the manufacturer’s knowledge, the Cation Exchange Stimulant label is the first ever approved.

The benefits farmers are seeing include the fact that growers can substantially reduce the amount of commercial fertilizers while  significantly increasing growth, hardiness and yield.

At the same time the chelation of accumulated copper and other inorganics, redeems damaged croplands.

Last month, there was a test of the solution against insects on 90 acres of citrus.   After 10 days, a Florida state inspector searched but could not find a single Leaf Miner nor Asian Psylid.  Most aphids were gone, but a few survived.

Another benefit is that PG Oil Clean can dissolve PCBs in about one second.

Growers can actually boost yields while reducing the amount and costs of ferilizers needed.  Cristian Delano’s neighbor, Baton Rouge,  reduced his fertilizer application
by 80% and is enjoying the largest yields in ten years of gardening. His tomatoes are the largest, sweetest ones he can remember and continued to produce long past the normal harvest season.  His pepper plants normally produce about 12 peppers.  This year, single plants are producing up to 90 peppers and were still producing in late November!

Part of the benefits are likely to be temporary.  Bio wash breaks down the unused nutrients that remain in the soil.  Eventually growers will need to add additional nutrients. Considering the (1) increasing costs of fertilizers and (2) the environmental damage being caused by them growers are welcoming the reduced costs and increased profit margins.

Bio Wash is the catalyst that boosts the potential profits.    The good value is agricultural real estate where prices are low… such as Florida (due to the real estate crash and a lot of groves purchased before the crash for conversion to residential use). These groves were never developed and now the developers have abandoned or want to get rid of them at bargain prices.

Another place where agricultural real estate offers great value is in Ecuador where land has been inexpensive… the sun shines 365 days a year over rich volcanic soil.

There are opportunities in so many crops in Ecuador plus some farms have multi dimensional opportunity  a combination of beach front development and agriculture.

multi dimensional opportunity.   See more on Ecuador agricultural opportunity here.  Low real estate prices… excellent climate… a growing local market and a relaxed lifestyle.

Good value.  You cannot miss making profit when you find and invest in it.   Real estate… God is not making any more for now.  Food.   The world’s population is estimated to grow from 7 to 9 billion over the next 50 years.  That’s 2 billion more mouths to feed… a huge increase in demand.

Throw them all together…  Good value in agricultural real estate improved with this non mutagenic, totally biodegradable solution and you have the prefect storm for steadiness and profit in a faster changing world.

Ecuador Agricultural Expedition

Ecuador Agricultural Property Expedition by Jean Marie Butterlin.

May 14-15-16, 2012

Sept 17-18-19, 2012

Ecuador-ag-land

See Ecuador agricultural property by four wheel drive.

Merri’s and my first property purchase many years ago was agricultural land… over 900 acres… formerly in sugar cane, citrus, pineapples and avocados… the top soil deep and rich.

ecuador-farm-land

Here is a photo of Merri feeding one of our horses.  We still have that hacienda land, Rosaspamba, (the place of the roses).

Plus we have added more agricultural land… and are looking to add more.

An excerpt from a recent message entitled Beating & Benefiting From the Economic Crash explains why: In the seven years before its peak in July 2006, the US home-price index surged 155 percent. Since then, it’s fallen 33 percent.

This creates a huge opportunity. Economic history since before WWI suggests that we’ll see the final crunch of this 15 year bear in 2011 and perhaps 2012.  Then the light at the end of the tunnel will appear… slowly at first but picking up a head of steam aiming for the next bubble of something like 2030.

The way to beat this crunch is to set your affairs so you do not lose during the next crunch and have liquidity to take advantage of the low prices and high value the crunch could bring.

There are numbers of reasonably safe pockets of opportunity.  For example inflation during these difficult economic times has helped profits on agricultural property.

Excerpts from a May 31, 2011 article “Farm boom missing Main Street” by By John Gaps III, of The Des Moines Register show what I mean:  GUTHRIE CENTER, Iowa – Fifteen miles northeast of here, a quarter of a square-mile of farmland sold for $1.3 million this spring.

Farmers can lock in about $6.73 a bushel on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for corn they will deliver to market in December, nearly twice the price a year ago.

The sustained surge in corn prices has driven the average value of an acre of Iowa farmland to $5,708, according to a March survey by the Realtors Land Institute. That’s up 19.7% from the previous six months and up from $1,865 in March 2001, according to the Institute’s Troy Louwagie. The land northeast of Guthrie Center— where fields are flat and the soil is black — sold for $8,600 per acre, according to the county assessor.

“The rural economy is very good right now despite signs of a peaking commodities market and concerns about drought creeping north from Texas, flooding along the Mississippi River, and rain-delayed corn planting in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. American farmers who grow everything from rice to sugar beets have enjoyed a year of historically high prices, said Don Roose, a trader at U.S. Commodities in West Des Moines.

It’s not just towns surrounded by crop farming that have declined amid high commodity prices.

In heavily forested west central Alabama, the town of York has suffered as the timber industry has consolidated, said Auburn sociology professor Conner Bailey, president-elect of the Rural Sociological Association.

That’s despite steadily climbing timber prices since the middle of 2009 on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

This is why in the last several years I have been writing about and adding agricultural real estate to my portfolio.

There are few places with as much agricultural potential and diversity as Ecuador. It is not surprising that many readers ask us about Ecuador farmland or agricultural property there.

Our first reply to anyone asking is… agricultural land is hard to find and get it!   Finding our hacienda took us well over a year of dedicated search.  Searching for good farmland is not like viewing a batch of properties in a town or village.  First, it often takes hours just to get to the land.  Secondly, it almost always takes hours inspecting the land.  You do not do quick walk throughs on  100 or more hectares.  One is lucky to be able to see one property a day unless you can be really very organized.

Then once you find something that looks good… the hard part begins.  Of course there is always the price!

Then there is the research.  One seemingly great property we looked at “had great water rights”  we were told.  “Then why does it have cisterns all over the place?”  we asked ourselves.  A deep check of the deeds and talking with neighbors unveiled the fact that what’s on paper does not always match precedent and reality.  There were water rights on paper, yes, but they were disputed by numerous neighbors who had for years continually cut the water lines every time the current owner installed them.  It was just pure luck that we were suspicious and turned down this property, which still has not sold.

Buying agricultural property is not like buying urban property from a title point of view.  There are no rural land registers, so deeds have to be carefully researched by an attorney.

Finally if you buy it… what’s next?   Who do you hire. What do you grow… who buys the crops?

Yet because there has been such interest, I challenged Jean Marie Butterlin to create an Ecuador Agricultural tour.   He has been working hard at this for over 6 months, and I am proud to announce that he has set up an excellent program for those who are really interested in farming in Ecuador.

Here is what Jean Marie has explained about the Ecuador real estate tours he has created and conducted.

When I was 40 years old and told my friends that I would retire at 50, they were laughing.  They are not laughing anymore!

My name is Jean Marie Butterlin and I live on one of the nicest, most affordable coasts of all South America with my wife Pascale and although I consider myself retired, I still like to work… but only at what I really like.

How did I achieve that ?

I had a plan.

Part of that plan was to move to a nice area where it was less expensive to live and much less stressful than Europe.   I found that place after traveling and inspecting most South American countries.  We chose Ecuador and more specifically Bahia as our home.

We live now as well on $2,000 a month in Bahia than we did in Europe on $10,000 a month.

When you are planning to retire and live the good life, you should look at both parts of the equation, expenses and what you can earn.I have been able to lower my expenses considerably by living in Bahia.  We live in front of the Malecon enjoying the sun 320 days per year.

But the key to retirement is really in the INCOME part of the equation.   How can you generate income without working too hard?

The answer is to have an “outside the box”  plan.  If you do what everybody else does, chances are you’ll earn what everyone else does.

A lot of younger clients on our real estate tours ask  “How can  I generate a little income in Ecuador”?  They say they would move down immediately if they could. This started me thinking  about how to show a few select clients a chance to be part of that world of retirees in Ecuador who work only at what they like.

I have put together a special plan for those seeking to move and earn in Ecuador now!

Here is the plan and here are the facts:

* Every economist is currently saying that agriculture will be the next place to invest because :

  • God is not making more arable land.
  • The world is running out of food.  China has been buying and leasing arable land all over Africa and in South America for example.  A lot of the smart money is going into arable all over the continent.

* Ecuador has some of the cheapest yet best agricultural land in all of South America.  The climate is best for growing as well with 365 days a year of direct sunlight.  In many parts of Ecuador, farmers can get 3 and even 4 harvests per year, depending on the water available on the property.

* However, most Ecuadorian farmers have not yet learned how to produce and manage a farm. They are lacking higher education and management skills as well as equipment.  Some Ecuador farmers still plow with oxen.

*  Many Ecuadorian farmers do not know how to sell and do not treat the farm as a real business.

There is a great opportunity that lies in this combination of cheap, arable land, the geographical place of Ecuador on the equator and lack of good agronomical skills.

Here is the chance to attend the first agri business expedition, planned for October 17, 18 and 19.

This is a tour for those who want to have an active agricultural business in Ecuador and have $100,000 minimum to invest.

This tour will be conducted over three long, jam packed days to provide you a low cost efficient way to inspect Ecuador agricultural property that is legitimately for sale at a reasonable price.

Day 1 – 9 am to 6 pm: Detailed presentations by agri engineers and specialists of several type of agri businesses. These presentations  include costs, types of soils for each type of crop, risk analysis, potential profits, timing, where to find the buyers of crops,  introduction to buyers  looking for specific crops.

On the tour we look “outside the box” at crops that can for example produce “biofuel”. We’ll look at land where one company in Manta will buy every available crop at market price.   We know the owners of that company and you will be introduced to them.

Day 2: Visits farms for sale.  Here is one farm we inspected on our first tour.  This agri property has 203 hectares (507 acres) divided into:

28 hectares (70 cares) of balsa trees.  In 5 years these will fetch $30,000 a hectare.

30 hectares (75 acres) of African palm trees in production (the nuts fetch $250 per ton).

Ecuador-agricultural-land

– 140 hectares (350 acres) of pasture sufficient for 200 head of cattle or other crops that can produce an excellent return.

Ecuador-agricultural-land

– 3 small

and one large river along the property with water availability.

Ecuador-agricultural-land

– Close to the main road

Ecuador-agricultural-land

– $6600/hectare ($2,640 an acre) asking including a small casita for caretakers.

Day 3: Q&A’s with the agri specialists…with round table discussions. We break into small groups to discuss in more details each business its costs and potential profits.

We have inspected and investigated all properties prior paying special attention to three special issues:

* water on site
* access roads
* good port close

We only show land that has water in Manabi province near Manta the second largest port in Ecuador.

We have investigated electricity, pricing and title plus will have speakers during breakfast and dinners who will discuss these  issues and the legal matters pertaining to agri businesses in Ecuador.

These experts will be available for consulting during the tour and later… covering technical matters on which crops are best suited for each soil and what times of the year are best for planting and harvest.  The tour pays special attention to reviewing the marketing aspect of each crop and where to find buyers.

We use our contacts with local people were born in the area… who know the land owners… who know what the “market” price should be and we do not show farmland where the seller is asking an unrealistic price or if there are any doubts about ownership or clear title.

We also provide administration, accounting and legal consultants who will answer questions about owning and running a company in Ecuador, a civil code country and very different from the US and Canada which run on common law.

Included in the tour fee:

*  Agri engineers who can help you start your business, provide services and the follow up.

* Legal experts in incorporation, administration accounting etc..

* Experts in marketing agricultural crops.

Although we do not advise being absentee owner, we can provide all the services needed to run the business with our agricultural team.

If your agricultural knowledge is limited, we have the experts who will help you through the learning curve.

The big Question is “How much can someone make in agri business in Ecuador?”

The Answer:  We will not show any businesses that do not produce on a regular basis at least 10% net return. Many agri businesses you will see can pay off land costs within 1 to 2 years.

The Agri Business Expedition fee is $1,990/single $2,990 couple.

For efficiency and logistics, this tour is strictly limited to 16 people… 4 persons per four wheel drive vehicle.

Jean Marie

Ecuador has many Agricultural Advantages and we have been recommending the idea of investing in Ecuador agriculture for years.

Here is an excerpt from an April 10, 2007 message  at this site entitled “Ecuador Agriculture”: Ecuador agriculture can offer a better lifestyle and opportunity as good prices rise. Sometimes we forget the importance of life’s basics…such as food. Until those basics cost more.

Ecuador agriculture is important because Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal included an article that began: “Prices of farm goods are climbing – in part because of demand for crop-based fuels – pushing up food prices around the world and creating a new source of inflationary pressure. The rise in food prices is already causing distress among consumers in some parts of the world — especially relatively poor nations like India and China. If the trend gathers momentum, it could contribute to slower global growth by forcing consumers to spend less on other items or spurring central banks to fight inflation by raising interest rates.”

This is one of the wonderful benefits of Ecuador agriculture, the extreme supply of excellent but low cost food.

Ecuador is a Garden of Eden and here is a fact you probably did not know. The inhabitants of this region developed more than half the agricultural products that the world eats today. Among these are more than many varieties of corn and potato. These foods also include squash, beans, peppers, peanuts, popcorn, yucca and quinoa.

They even learned to use freezing night temperatures and warm days to freeze dry potatoes and create potato flour.

At the market, three blocks from our hotel where we shop.  Open air restaurants in the front of the market offer excellent meals, vegetarian, or chicken, steak, fish or pork for about $1.

There are numbers of  fresh picked vegetables offered by happy friendly people.

And every type of fruit you can imagine, from pineapple to coconut, papaya, mango, apples, pears, bananas, berries and numerous other tropical fruits all at bargains prices by Western standards and ripe all year round.

Many exotic spices at a 1/20th the cost in the US or Canada. This makes life especially wonderful and inexpensive.

This creates opportunity as well.

Ecuador’s geographical location gives it a distinct advantage in agricultural production. Its exports include asparagus, bananas, broccoli, cocoa, coffee, flowers, hearts of palm, lentils, papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, plantain, mango, red beans, and tomatoes. Ecuador has mainly an agricultural economy, though oil is its largest source of revenue, and industry has expanded. Agriculture employs 32 percent of the workforce. 6.4 million acres is used in agriculture. Permanent pasture covers 17 percent of the total area and forests nearly 43 percent. In the highlands subsistence agriculture and the production of staples for the urban areas are predominant (corn, wheat, barley, potatoes, pulses, and various vegetables). In the coastal lowlands tropical crops are grown to export. Ecuador is the largest exporter of bananas in the world and among the largest exporters of shrimp and roses.

Merri and I have been recommending Ecuador for almost 15 years…we have been recommending investing in agricultural property for even longer. Agricultural property in Ecuador makes excellent sense for those who like both ideas.  We are very pleased that Jean Marie has created this excellent tour.  We are happy to share this opportunity with you.

Tour price includes local transportation to the farms but does not include domestic airfare from Quito to Manta and lodging.  Meals are NOT included.

The Agri Business Expedition fee is $1,990/single $2,990 couple.

For efficiency and logistics this tour is strictly limited to 16 people… 4 persons per four wheel drive vehicle.

Who Will Benefit From This Tour

Attendees on this tour will range from those who want their own sustainable organic farm like Neverlands Farm in Loja to those who want a small agricultural property to enhance existing income… to those who want to run medium and larger agri businesses.

Small – Organic  – Sustainable

Neverland Organic Farms is a great case study of people creating an isolated sustainable organic farm

See about the organic farm here

Income Supplement – Beautiful Way of Life

A good case study for those looking for a way of life and income supplement is this  six acre organic tomato farm that delegates on on a real estate tour visited.   This shows a perfect little Ecuador retirement operation, so where should we start?

I think it is with the guinea pigs…

The farm has many of them in these cages.

Here is the Ecuador organic farmer with our driver Jorge, Alberto Verdezoto and Peggy Carper.

Tomatoes grow quickly here it seems.  These newly planted organic tomatoes will be ready in three weeks. I find this hard to believe but this is what the farmer said.  Though my Spanish has been known to miss on occasion.

Micro Business Opportunity in Ecological Products


Here are micro business opportunity with ecological products from Ted Tidwell who manufactures Purely Green and Bio Wash.

Merri and I have used Purely Green in our North Carolina and Florida homes as well as our rental units for almost twenty years.  We even shipped it to the  Ecuador hotel we purchased and ran for many years.  We use it to clean floors and everything thing else, as a shampoo, clothes and dish washing soap, car cleaner as well as ant and bug eradicator because it is so effective and is organic.

When Ted added BioWash, an agricultural solution that has Purely Green as its base, we used this at our North Carolina farm and Florida orange grove.   You can see the results below.

Purely Green 25 is registered as an organic pesticide, but in addition to being effective both Purely Green and BioWash products are also good for the environment.  This is because they remove insects as a degreaser, instead of as a poison.

Another environmental benefit is that BioWash Soil Amendment was tested by SGS Labs and qualified for the EPA’s most prestigious rating: “Readily Biodegradable.”

Over the last tow decades we have found a multitude of uses for these products… even for fishing!

Purely Green for fishing?

Ted writes: Gary Reid, Naples, Florida, discovered a new benefit from Purely Green… soaring fish yields!

He plans to market it with his private label.

The youtube video is of his second successful fishing trip.

Enjoy. They are certainly having a good time.

Gary we would appreciate other fishermen/ladies testing and sending back reports about using Purely Green as a Fishing Lure Enhancer.

Comment:  The idea of fish being attracted to PurelyGreen sounds incredible.

However, so many other unexpected benefits have appeared, we are beginning to think anything is possible.

purely-green

Cristian Delano observed that crabs seemed to be attracted by Purely Green. It may offer enhanced yields for crab and lobster fishermen.

This is the solution that not only produced a bumper oat harvest in one of the worst droughts in Texas history, the oats tested at double the normal protein content!

It is also the solution that leaves no visible trace of oil. (Others which “disperse” leave oil residues.)

Preliminary tests indicate that Purely Green Oil Clean breaks up PCBs, which is one of the most challenging environmental contaminants.

I am amazed and humbled to be involved in formulating such a gift.

Ted

We have created a program with Ted Tidwell so those who are interested can become distributors of Biowash and Purely Green. 

A number of readers have created a successful distributorships.

Many of our readers and subscribers have a desire to have their own business.  Our courses and seminars will help make your business ideas work better, but this is a specific opportunity for those who do not have a business idea can join in our turnkey micro business program.

Food For Thought and Better Health With Purely Green

Merri and I take the cleanliness of our food supply seriously.

In North Carolina we eat a lot of wild food and vegetables we grow in our garden.

gary-scott-farming

surrounding our house with lettuce of all types, greens and herbs.

gary-scott-farming

Our greenhouse allows us to start our planting early.

In the spring nature provides us with dandelions and a wonderful lettuce (called branch lettuce) that grows wild in the creek later to be supplemented by Bee Balm and Echinacea for tea.

gary-scott-farming

Here is echinacea and tomatoes growing in front of our meditation room.

Here is a bit of our harvest.

gary-scott-farming

This time of year, we harvest our grapes and collect apples from our many apple trees.  We have acres of…

gary-scott-farming

wild blackberries in the summer and wild mountain strawberries in the late spring.

gary-scott-farming

Our chickens provide us with summer meals like this.

gary-scott-farming

We also have a greenhouse in Florida and start the gardening process again in winter.

In addition we have citrus, grapes, figs, blueberries and loquats that provide us with Florida fruit throughout the year.

These crops, plus trout in North Carolina, bass and panfish from our Florida lake allow us to eat less commercially grown food.

This gardening is fulfilling, provides gentle exercise and we find picking our own food especially satisfying.  Plus there are some enormous health benefits.

Dr. John Douillard at Lifespa.com (1) points out that “Environmental pollutants, cancer causing chemicals, plastics, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals and industrial waste overwhelm the body’s natural detoxification pathways.  Toxic cloud plumes from burning coal cover most of the United States and lace even our organic vegetables with heavy metals. Pesticides and preservatives have infiltrated their way into almost all the food consumed in America and can store in the body’s fat, including the brain, for years. Industrial wastes have permeated our ground water and can enter our body by simply washing our organic veggies with tap water.  Over time these stored chemicals undermine our immunity, render us susceptible to disease, infection and premature aging.”

This is why Merri and I clean our our vegetables and fruit, especially those we purchase in the store, with Purely Green 25.

I asked our friend, Ted Tidwell, who manufactures Purely Green to explain how this works.

Ted replied:  In order for pesticides to remain on the plant and effective during rains, they are encased in oil.  An ordinary vegetable wash that does not dissolve oil will permit pesticidal residues to remain on the plant and be ingested.

PurelyGreen is powerful enough to dissolve crude oil and tar, so it easily dissolves the oil and removes the poisonous pesticides.  Ted

Merri and I use Purely Green 25, diluted at the rate of two (2) ounces per quart of water is our preferred method for cleaning purchased fresh fruit and vegetables.

We simple spray our fruits and vegetables thoroughly and generously with Purely Green and let it penetrate for several minutes before rinsing.

This removes the oil encrusted toxic chemical pesticides that ordinary veggie washes cannot remove.

This also improves the taste by removing the oil and toxins and extends the freshness and edibility for several additional days.

Purely Green is certified carcinogen free.  Many consumers save the cost of expensive organic produce by removing the insecticides with Purely Green.  This organic cleaner/degreaser helps the environment and poses no threat to humans, animals or marine life.

Recently Ted sent this note to me:  EcoCert International has certified BioWash 25, BioWash 100 and BioWash Soil Amendment as ORGANIC.  This achievement will help enrich hundreds of distributors and thousands of organic growers.

ECOCERT (2) is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world.  The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade Standards.

Congratulations to Ted.  It is great to see other organizations confirm what we have known and have let readers know for decades.

There is also a huge financial savings.  Three quarts of 409 household cleaner delivered by Amazon.com is $16.98 or about $5.66 per quart before shipping.  You then have shipping costs or have to pay to be an Amazon Prime customer for free shipping.  But $5.66 per quart is about the best you’ll get for 409 household cleaner.

One gallon of Purely Green 25 is $96.  This is a concentrate that is mixed 15 to 1 (two ounces per appx. quart 30 ounces of water).  That gallon of Purely Green creates 64 quarts of ready to use at less than $2.00 per quart. 

There is one drawback to the Purely Green products, a high cost of shipping.   Ted does not offer Purely Green in stores and Fedex charges quite a bit for shipping.  The shipping, for a gallon averages out around $26 a gallon.  So the Purely Green and shipping are $122.

If you were to purchase the same amount of a traditional non organic house cleaner (such as Clorox 409) from Amazon.com,  you would pay $266.24 more.  

You can order one gallon here and the shipping is included.

One Gallon of Purely Green 25 $122. Buy Purely Green 25, one gallon

Purely Green

We are bombarded daily with toxicities of every sort.  We see toxic news.  We are sold and served toxic food.  Much of our water supply contains poisons.  There are chemicals in the air.  Anything we can do to reduce the pollution that gets in our bodies can help us get and maintain natural health.  I hope that sharing this program for Purely Green will help create a cleaner world.

Funky Micro Business in Weeds


There are many funky micro business opportunities in weeds.

One man’s flower is another man’s weed.  One man’s problem is another man’s opportunity.

The wonderful flowers in our North Carolina front yard are…

car-story 

weeds.   They are beautiful one time of the year but take over if not controlled.  We use bush hogs to keep them cut back… but our meadows are fpr grazing and  are small.   Mowing won’t work in most types of farming and this fact creates profit potential.

Excerpts from a Businessweek article The Super Weed Strikes Back tells the tale:  Justin Cariker grabs a 7-foot-tall Palmer pigweed at his farm, bending the wrist-thick stem to reveal how it has overwhelmed the cotton plant beneath it. This is no ordinary weed: Over time it has developed resistance to Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup. Hundreds of such “superweeds” are rising defiantly across this corner of the Mississippi Delta. “We’re not winning the battle,” Cariker, owner of Maud Farms in Dundee, Miss., says as he looks at weeds that tower over his infested cotton field like spindly green scarecrows.

Cariker’s superweeds represent a growing problem for Monsanto, whose $11 billion of annual sales are anchored in crops genetically engineered to tolerate Roundup, the world’s best-selling weedkiller. The use of Roundup Ready seeds has transformed farming in the 15 years since their debut, allowing growers to easily dispatch hundreds of types of weeds with a single herbicide while leaving crops unscathed. “When the Roundup system first came out, to a farmer this was the best thing that ever happened,” says Cariker, who used the labor-saving technology to double his planted acreage, to 5,000. “Farmers thought we had died and gone to heaven.”

Not exactly: It turns out the widespread use of Roundup has led to the evolution of far-tougher-to-eradicate strains of weeds.

Resistant weeds are a huge problem as the world’s food supplies struggle to keep up with a growing population.  and the bigger the problem the greater the opportunity.

More powerful herbicides are not the answer.  Toxic sprays already create health problems enough!

Finding ways to supply nutritious, healthy foods is among the top income producing  fields.

This is why we we have made Bio Wash one of the five turnkey business opportunities we have integrated into our International Business Made EZ program.

The Beta Turnkey International Micro Business program is aimed at bringing goodness AND profit.

Take Bio Wash as an example.  A recent message we shared over two dozen ways that people from restaurants to farmers to garbage processors are using this organic bio degradable product to enhance some part of their business and help the environment at the same time.

Bio Wash helps plants grow and is…

biowash

well suited for small business.

One Man – Millions Ruined

Forget nuclear threats.  No one will do it.  Mad (mutual assured destruction) still works.

Plus building an A bomb is a lot of work and requires remarkable resources and skill.

Hacking is much better.  The damage is formidable.

Even one man can do a lot towards bringing a nation down.

Russian and Chinese hacking are bigger problems than bombs.

Hackers have done so much more damage than any explosive.  The Wall Street Journal article “Russian Hackers Stole NSA Data on U.S. Cyber Defense” (1) says “The breach, considered the most serious in years, could enable Russia to evade NSA surveillance and more easily infiltrate U.S. networks.”

The Navy Times website article “Report: Navy is under ‘cyber siege,’ national secrets leaking from the hull” (2) tells how cyber skills will be  weapon of the next war.

Navy Times

The report reveals a 57-page internal Navy review that shows a dire picture regarding an ongoing cyber war pitting hackers against the Navy.

The report shows how the Navy and its contractors “under cyber siege” by many, including Chinese government hackers . The hackers have exploited critical flaws in U.S. cyber security to steal huge amounts of national security secrets from the defense industry.

The final report claims that although the U.S. is aware of cyber attacks by foreign hackers, the government has struggled to respond to the large number of breaches and has failed to effectively warn its defense contractors.

“We are under siege,” a senior Navy official said in the report. “People think it’s much like a deathly virus — if we don’t do anything, we could die.”

The document reports that China’s involvement in hacking has boosted its military prowess, “thereby altering the calculus of global power,” the Journal added.

The Russians and Chinese are not the worst worry either.

We have enough personal security worries from the US alone.

Look at the damage that one single person can do!

Recently the Federal Reserve Bank sent me a letter saying that a Fed employee had stolen data about customers of numerous banks including ours… and including Merri’s and my accounts.   They gave me two years of free credit security.

One person, with one 500 gigabyte flash drive can ruin your life and millions of others.

Once that data is out who knows what those, who have access to it, will do… to you and to me?

One Fed employee isn’t the only sad story.

Equifax claims that a single mistake, by just one employee, exposed sensitive personal information of nearly 146 million Americans.

In the same month, Yahoo admitted that a 2013 hack affected all three billion of its accounts. (3)

Everyone it seems… from a single person to entire nations… want their hands in your pockets…

Their pen on your checkbook..,

Their eyes in your room…

Which nations?

We have heard plenty about Russia, but China with more than half of its 1.4 billion people online, has a slew of cyberspies and hackers.

In 1999 Chinese hackers planted messages denouncing “NATO’s brutal action” on several U.S. government websites.  Two years later Chinese hackers defaced thousands of U.S.-based websites, including the White House site.

Then they went quiet, so one wonders what they are silently up to.   If they can get in the White House web sites… what else can they do… to me and to you?

Then there is North Korea.  While they talk big about A-bombs and ICBMs, they have quietly been stealing bitcoins (4).  There have been three attacks against South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges in just the last few months.  The hackers go after cryptocurrency exchanges, swap them into other, more anonymous cryptocurrencies — or move them elsewhere and eventually withdraw them in traditional currencies.

They go after traditional banks as well.

North Korea is linked to attacks on banks in 18 countries including Bangladesh, Ecuador, the Philippines, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Gabon, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Poland, Taiwan, Thailand, and Uruguay.   One of their cyberheists on Bangladesh’s Central Bank netted them tens of millions of dollars.

If they can steal from central banks… what chance do our individual accounts have?

Getting their hands on our money isn’t all.

Hackers, individuals and governments, are after control of our electricity grids, our subways and smartphones.

They can influence us… disrupt, divide and even bring an entire nation to a standstill.

No gas.

Nor cell phones.

The lights go out.

Food and water in stores is… gone.

No radio.  No internet… no TV.

What can we do?

Sadly, when it comes to protecting our money, our privacy and ways of life that involve the internet… there is not much we can do.

There is a way, however, to take advantage of modern technology but still have a safe lifestyle as well.

Live anywhere.  Earn Everywhere. Become a Pruppie.

See below, how to gain a better,  higher income, but with a safe and low stress life.

A huge economic struggle is taking place.

If that struggle is lost what’s left of our privacy, the safety of our food supply, the control over our health, the safety of our money and even the sanctity of our opinions and thoughts could be lost.

Markets and social order can collapse at any time.  Schools are not safe from shooters on the rampage.  Streets are in danger of terrorists ramming their cars into riders on bikes.  We are no longer safe… in shopping centers, at festivals, even in the church.

Yet the bigger danger grows.   This struggle is taking place, right now.

You can read about tiny parts of this conflict daily in the news.   Most of the clash however is hidden from view.  There are horrible consequences hidden beneath the visible spin.

There is an association forming that can ruin our health care, nutrition and the environment.  This group an control what you read on the internet, see all the words in our phone calls, watch what we see on TV and slant the trends we learn about in social media.

Everything you write or say can be recorded and used  to control what you hear and read.

The warning shot, above the surface, was the merger between Bayer and Monsanto.

Bayer and Monsanto each have each developed poisons that are harsh on our ecosystem.

The merger of the two firms should have been stopped to ensure human and planetary survival.

But these massive companies have invested so much into lobbying and financing political campaigns that they have the ability to shape political systems to their own end.

Scientific studies found that neonicotinoid pesticides made by Bayer have almost eradicated some bird populations and flying insects.

These pesticides, along with Monsanto’s toxic herbicide Roundup, have delivered a one-two punch against  butterflies, honeybees and birds. Roundup has also been linked to over 40 human diseases, including cancer.

But both the US and the European Union approved the $66 billion merger of Bayer and Monsanto.  This union not only increases the potential of adding toxic poison to the environment but also gives this giant form control over genetically modified (GMO) seeds that have reduced seed diversity globally.

This union is horrible enough, yet it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Seven companies are involved in a more sinister plot.

The momentum of this dangerous alliance has picked up faster than anticipated.

I began researching and preparing a report “Learn Anywhere, Earn Everywhere” when the Bayer-Monsanto merger was the big deal.   They were two of the seven firms involved in this almost invisible take-over of our food and medical services as well as the internet, cell phones and TV.

I started researching when I saw the hidden depths of this Bayer-Monsanto merger.  I was truly concerned and shocked because my research discovered that the consolidation of Bayer and Monsanto is not the biggest merger nor the most dangerous by far.

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

A triad of three huge concerns and four smaller ones with hundreds of billions of dollars have built one of the most formidable lobbying operations in Washington.  Nearly 100 registered lobbyists are already on retainer and they include former members of Congress.   One company in this heptagon is also the largest donor to federal lawmakers.

The donations we know of equal more than $11 million paid to 374 of the House’s 435 members and 85 of the Senate’s 100 members in this election cycle.

This deadly seven point affiliation is likely to snake into almost every part of our livelihood.

One part of the cartel will increase our dependence on modified food that can purposely increase our needs for pharmaceuticals manufactured and sold at outrageous prices by another arm of the group.

The organizations will know more about us than any other group in existence.  They will (in fact they already are) act as spies for the government.  This amalgamation will control what ads we see, the products we buy, listen into our phone calls and even monitor and influence what we see on TV.

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

This is why I am rushing a report to you so you can be one of the few who avoid the ruin of this alliance and gain rather than lose from the shift.

The report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere” contains seven steps we can take to gain benefits and protection from this cartel.

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

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

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

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

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

From a political point of view we cannot do much about this alliance.   The cartel has hundreds of billions of dollars and hundreds of lobbyists.  They are making their big move right now, to take advantage of the current political distraction.  They know that after an election politicians are willing to accept bad news because it will be forgotten in four years.

In addition their greatest enemy in the government has only a couple of months left as the head of the Federal agency that will fight this cartel.

Only a few people will know how to take advantage of the shifts created from the results of this alliance.

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

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

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

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

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

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

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

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

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

ecuador-banks

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

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

goldenseal ginseng

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

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

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.

tipi

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 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.

gary-scott-farming

Our North Carolina greenhouse.

Our Florida greenhouse.

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

This pond at our farm is a pleasure but also helps create a safe, healthy food supply and creates a tax deduction as well.

The upcoming economic turmoil will cause many to suffer.

A New York Times article “Fear of Inflation Rising” by David Leohardt confirms this when it says:   If history is a guide, the odds that the American economy is falling into a double-dip recession have risen sharply in recent weeks and may even have reached 50 percent.

Economies have a strong self-reinforcing nature. When people are optimistic, they spend, which begets hiring and then more spending. When people are anxious, they pull back, which leads to a cycle of hiring freezes and further anxiety that often lasts for months.

The United States appears to have entered some version of the vicious cycle. Most ominously, job growth has slowed to a pace that typically signals the start of a recession.

Over the last 50 years, every time that job growth has been as meager as it has been over the last four months, the economy has been headed toward recession, in a recession or in the immediate aftermath of one. From early 2010 through this spring, by contrast, employment was growing fast enough to make the economy look as if it were in a recovery, albeit a modest one.

One of the really bad parts about this is that this will push many people down the scale on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

The first issue is the fundamental of all markets, is the needs and desires of society. These desires are fairly predictable having been classified many years ago in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. This hierarchy of needs are:

#1: Physical

#2: Security

#3: Social

#4: Acknowledgement

#5: Self-realization

A starving, cold person does not care how fancy his clothes are, how much his car impresses friends, etc. He just wants food. He will ignore brand names, insignias on his clothes and not worry too much in the neighborhood he is in. Once these physical needs are met he then turns to security, to assure that he can keep his home, stay warm etc. Only when he feels safe and has spare time does he start to think more about family, friends and being social. Eventually he’ll want to impress these friends. He’ll want to be important. Once this is achieved he’ll have to prove to himself he is as good as his friends think he is.

Then he (or she) begins to think beyond these immediate needs to the longer term more global needs such as the environment and other vital social-economic issues as humanitarianism (fair trade) and natural health (organic nutrition for example).

In a global population of about seven billion people the richest 800 million portion of the global population account for more than half the wealth.  This is not good news for the other 6.2 billion people but there has been one shining light… this wealthy minority have become more interested in these huge, very important social issues.

Over the past 40 years we have seen our readership dramatically increase their green, social, organic concerns. However, during the downside of the economic cycle, we could lose a lot of that.  When someone loses their job and finds it hard to get another, they stop thinking about whether a potential employer is using fair trade products in the goods. When a family is at risk of losing their home to foreclosure, they stop worrying about a hungry child in emerging nations.  When a person is starving… even spam might look good.

We know that people are suffering because of the global economic shifts.  We see this from our readers every day.  We know that the global economy is likely to get worse before it gets better.  Economies ALWAYS have cycles.   We also know that those who are prepared do best during the downside of the cycle.

To help, we have expanded our focus on surviving the loss of jobs and currency purchasing power though micro businesses using multi dimensional concepts.

Yet we have tried to maintain a green… fair trade focus as well.

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.

However over the years it has been discovered to do much more. Below you’ll see dozens of testimonies from happy users that have found that Purely Green and Bio Wash have an amazing capacity to enhance plant growth… clean oil off birds and even fight fungus in the toes!

The manufacturer Ted Tidwell, a friend for decades, cannot make claims in the US… but we and our multitude of readers who love the stuff can… and as you will see below do.

Ecuador-imports

Our orange groves are like producers of green gold… that fight inflation.   We saw the yield of our grove double the first year we applied Bio Wash.

Somewhere around 15 years ago, I first wrote about Purely Green which I then called “Ted’s Stuff”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Then Ted created opportunity in Ecuador and other emerging countries.

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

These solutions are certified free of all carcinogens.

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

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

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

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

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

ecuador-organic-farming

tall and with these long ears.

ecuador-organic-farming

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

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

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

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

ecuador-organic-farming

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

ecuador-organic-farming

Ted Tidwell and Antonio.

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

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

ecuador-organic-farming

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

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

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

ecuador-organic-farming

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

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

Here is a farmer BioWashing a squash vine and…

and a large, pesticide free squash.

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

I tested the plant formula called Bio Wash on our citrus grove. Texas A & M University recently tested Ted’s Stuff  as a possible solution to the Citrus Greening problem which we have in our area.  Bio Wash proved more effective than the highly toxic Bayer chemicals as it kills the insect that transmits the blight.

Our per tree grove production doubled last year… the first year we sprayed with Bio Wash.

Ecuador-imports

Our orange groves. I anxiously await our production figures this year.

Yet the uses of Purely Green are so much more than just for cleaning and growing.

Here is a letter that a Ph. D Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology sent to Ted Tidwell.

“I actually tried some of this for treatment of athlete’s foot (don’t laugh too hard.) But I figured if it killed all of the stuff that you said it did it would probably work on this fungus as well. Not to mention that my foot was driving me crazy and I had forgot to get some medicine for it. Anyway, I did a 1:15 dilution and sprayed it on. A couple of applications later, by the next day it was gone. I was amazed. Granted this is not a scientific study, but thought that you would want to know. If it works on that it should also work on jock itch (same fungus just different location). Not sure what the market is for athletes foot/jock itch medicine, but the stuff seems to work. Will keep you informed of any other strange uses.”

We currently cannot claim that Ted’s Stuff is a cure for Athlete’s foot or for many of the uses that readers tell us that work. This is where the business opportunity comes in…. the many ways this product seems to work.

Here is another use for Purely Green that amazed me.  Here is what one user wrote:  Ted, how’s this for a Purely Green commercial? I caught the most fish both days with spraying my bait with heavy duty mix we sure had alot of laughs about the bio wash fish lure. I told the Captain he could charge a buck a squirt on his charter.   All kidding aside I think it really worked and the captain says to me this goes against everything he ever learned about fishing.  I made a believer out of him he’s going to clean the haul tomorrow with the product.

Another uses it on horses and wrote: Gary,  Ted’s cleaner is also wonderful for injuries on our horses.  I think just a smooth swab with a q-tip of his cleaner is incredible.  I once had a horse that was in training for the Tevis 100 mile race.  Three weeks prior she got a serious cut on the bulb of her foot.  I cleaned it with Ted’s cleaner put on a sterile wrap to keep it clean and three days later she was ready to ride.  That would normally have taken weeks and she would have been out of contention for the Tevis.  I think that Ted’s Cleaner removes all the bad pathogens and that facilitates the fast healing.  Thanks again for “turning me on” to Ted he is a great guy!  I have shared his products with many people and the testimonials are terrific.

I think you get the idea.  This product seems to work in so many ways.  Below if you choose to read them, you’ll see another two dozen + endorsements from users.

This is why we look at ways to create business opportunities using Bio Wash.

25 Excerpts of Purely Green and Bio Wash emails from Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, Uruguay, Panama, Kenya, South Africa, Indonesia, the Philippines and USA regarding:

Philippine Tomatoes:  Ted, I treated my vines once weekly with a dilution  of one (1) ounce of BioWash 25 per four (4) gallons
of water.   Most all the folks here in the Islands only see Cherry tomatoes, they don’t believe these……just about used up my jug of BioWash.

bio-wash

Gardening: Ted  My Brother Chris, in up-state New York, sprayed his black eyed susan’s starting about June 5th, 2011.  He mixed one ounce per gallon of BioWash 25 & sprayed 3 times at 10 day intervals.  He hasn’t sprayed since .  They look absolutely green and a perfect yellow.

He said he cannot nor pick his vegetables fast enough and everything keeps flowering.  He estimates increases of 50% more than his previous years. He also says his cucumbers are crunchy and have a great flavor. Everyone says they never tasted vegetables so good. Zucchini is still flowering right now which is usually done by Aug. He loves this stuff.  He’s also spraying deer plots of chickory and white tail clover.  In just 7 days after the first spray he noticed more leaves covering the ground and really thick with bright green leaves.  You have permission to forward this info to others. God Bless.

More Gardening:  Ted,  This is my Hibiscus bush over 5ft tall and still going and 5ft wide one stem has as many as 5 buds.
I stopped counting at over 200 buds.  AMAZING!

bio-wash

More Gardening:  Ted,  I just came in from working in my garden as a breather, and have more miracles to report.  As I reported before with my grapes, the bugs nearly ate all my grape crop before BioWash.   Before BioWash, the bugs also ate all my citrus crops.  But lo and behold, I have a new crop of Ponderosa lemons.

Bio-remediation:   Thanks Ted , PCb’s are a big problem in Idonesia as is toxic waste dumping especially in induystrial areas like Surabaya . Please keep me updated on this bio-remediation use of the product as it is very important to us here on Bali.  The distributor who stimulated the microbial tests in Seattle, suggested that new plants could possibly be designed in a way that the Oil Cleaner could be used?   The distributor was encouraged when the plant operator advised him that successful use of a bio-degradable, non-toxic solution could save the city of Seattle nearly $500 million per year!

Sewage: The City of Baton Rouge is now officially testing the sewage treatment benefit.  The Senior Operator advised our distributor that, in 35 years, no other solution has accomplished what our Oil Cleaner accomplished.  The New Orleans distributor tested  PurelyGreen Oil Cleaner
in the Baton Rouge sewer treatment plant at the rate of one (1) gallon per 5,000 gallons of sewage.  Within six hours, it reduced solid matter from 80% down to 20%!  It also increased the oxygen content enough that “blood worms”  returned.  (That’s good. Blood worms help consume and remove blood in the sewer system.)

Restaurants:   Ted, Can we use “Oil Clean” in the restaurant business instead of Purely Green as it cuts grease better?   YES. IT IS PROVING VERY POPULAR IN RESTAURANTS.   2. Does it have the same properties as Purely Greeen that it  kills everything but is safe around food?  IT IS STILL TOO NEW ON THE MARKET TO KNOW FOR SURE, BUT BECAUSE IT IS A MORE POWERFUL DEGREASER, LOGIC INDICATES THAT IT WILL DISSOLVE GERMS AND BACTERIA EVEN BETTER THAN PURELY GREEN. 3. Can we really dilute and use it 3 ways as #1: basic cleaner for food prep areas, #2: medium clean & #3: heavy duty?   The chef I have been working with loves it & wants to send it to Jordon Mackey at Noble House.   He is a very close friend of his and wants to go all biodegradable.  They have 17 locations, hotels, restaurants etc. This is huge.  They use 76 gallons a week plus. God bless you Sir. Kind Regards,

Electrical Savings:  I injected 1 ounce in a 3 ton A/C unit and reduced kwh usage 25%.  The reduction faded after 72 hours.
To be practical, an automatic injection would be needed.

Animal Care:  Ted, a Canadian distributor starting adding a few squirts of Purely Green into the water of old, sick dogs.
He advises that within a few days, sick and lazy old dogs are playing like puppies again.

Farming:   The corn shown here received 3 applications of Biowash at 2 week intervals and the results were amazing.  The attached picture shows one of the plants growing 4 ears of corn .  As you would expect I had a bumper crop with extra to give away and am convinced biowash was responsible for the much larger yield.

The 2011 pictures are of the bean plants after 2 applications of biowash.  They have grown even more after these pictures and almost all the plans have set between 15-20 or more beans per plant which is at least double what last years plants produced without biowash. Ted, if you have any other “magic” products, I am ready.

More Farming: Could the bread basket of the world soon become the bread casket of the world?  A strain of stem rust called Ug99 threatens 90% of the world’s supply of wheat.   Big Ag’s foolish practice of monoculture puts us at more risk than ever before.  Wheat’s (and barley’s) biggest vulnerability is a plant disease called “stem rust.” It’s actually a fungus. Since the 1990s, a new strain of stem rust–designated as Ug99 because it was first identified in Uganda–has been making its way around the globe. A whopping 90% of the world’s wheat, plus much of the world’s barley, is vulnerable to Ug99. Ug99 is so good at mutation that it has defeated most of the “resistance” genes in different varieties of wheat. Agricultural scientists are barely able to keep one step ahead of it. Some fear we are losing the battle. National Geographic recently reported that, according to Rick Ward of the Durable Rust Resistance in Wheat project at Cornell University: “A significant humanitarian crisis is inevitable.”

According to one Bio Wash distributor, Bio Wash eliminated the problem in a Kansas wheat field test.

One expert believes it will save the wheat crops in Indonesia.   It will be around August 15th or so before we know the exact tonnage post harvest.  Will let you know.

More Farming:  Dear All,  We are getting excellent results of Power-Gro on Roses, Green beans and wheat. It is amazing that after only seven days a difference can be seen on the crop. I will send you the pictures on crop sprayed soon.  Best regards,

More Farming:  A grower in New York state told Joyce that his corn is producing four (4) ears per stalk!  He is in town for a couple of days…then back to Iowa. He is really impressed with Biowash. He even saved one of his farm neighbors geranium plants.

Berry Farming South Africa:  Below find a brief summary of the trials we are planning to conduct on strawberries once our shipment of Biowash arrives in South Africa. As explained to you earlier; we are going to do the trials in conjunction with the University of Stellenbosch (Agriculture Faculty) and Zettler Berries, one of the most well known strawberry growers in South Africa.

Avacado FarmingTed,  I have followed the interaction of you bio wash and purely green as  it interacts with the plant tissues and soil microcosms.  There are several elements that seem to be common denominators. There are varied silicas and hydrogen per trioxides that lead to deuterium of various potentials.  This  explains why the high Ph levels but low conductance–a type of oxy-moron.

I am not trying to back enginer anything but I want to see why it works so well and that when blended with our product how to make sure we do not harm either of our attributes.  Last night I sprayed an area about a foot square with biowash and skipped a foot and sprayed another area with purely green.  Covered all areas under a clear sheet of clear ply vinyl.  The areas in between after 24 hours had 100 times the microbial populations that both the treated areas combined.  These results show that we can raise available nitrogen in the soils to the equivalent of 500lbs of available Nitrogen in 24 hours. Your product collects dust from the air and this dust is so fine that it is immediately taken in by the plant as bio available nutrition.  The silicas enhance the ionic transition charge. The high Ph is a counter ion to short wave ultra violet ray yielding a light range in the 380 to 530 wave length or the green wave length. Truly amazing.

Mad Scientist:  Ted I have been playing Mad Scientist and found that Purely Green is a fantastic tarnish remover. I sprayed a sterling spoon, with a solution of RTU and wiped it completely clean with a paper towel. If this is a new discovery, please let me know, and I will make note of dwell time, next time. It was less than a minute, though. Of that, I am certain.

Landscaping: Ted – Here are “before and after” pics of a diseased anise I treated with bio wash.

Mango Plantation: Hi Ted … You should see the fabulous crop of mangoes I have this  year!  It’s probably the biggest crop I”ve ever had since I bought this place, and the mangoes are the biggest I’ve ever seen on my trees.  I have sprayed my herbs also on a weekly basis, and they,
too, are growing like crazy.  If I had a vegetable garden, I’d be  spraying that, too.  My avocados – on the other hand – don’t like the weather or something,  and are not fruiting as well this year.  I guess you can’t win ’em all.

Forestry: It appears similar to the bug that was devastating the  hemlock trees in the Appalachian mountains. Once infested,
the tree usually dies within seven years.  Purely Green has saved over 10,000 ancient hemlock trees. It melts the protective web which will
allow the eggs to die.

General Use: We’ve been testing the hell out of your product since Oct 2010 – giving away samples and receiving feedback from all sort of business and personal users.  I’m happy to say that we actually have a 100% Positive Feedback rating from every single person AND business we provided samples of the 144 Qts of the RTU PurelyGreen formula here in the NY, NJ, PA, and CT areas.  The only complaint I received was “I ran out, can I get more!”.  So I’ll be sending a larger order shortly, just working on our brand, and some other marketing logistics (web site, print material, logo’s, labels, bar code, etc).  I’ve especially received lots of interest from the business community, particularly gas stations, mechanics, tool rental, cleaning services, and one very large heating oil company.  All requested concentrated versions so that they can try on some of their ‘really oily’ problems/messes.

Panama: Dear Dr. Tidwell,  When Dr. Davis introduced me to you in Panama last year, I had already read about Bio-Wash25 and decided it was worth a try to revive my 11 foot tall Burford Holly hedge.  I had been using a commercial lawn and shrub care service for several years and I was also trying various remedies from nurserymen as well as the state agricultural office in order to control a white fly infestation.

You can tell from the accompanying photos how close I came to losing my beautiful hedge.

After the first spraying of BioWash25, the white fly population was decimated.

With regular spraying , leaf loss stopped, not a single white fly or other injurious insect attacked my holly, and this spring incredible new growth sprouted on the sides as well as the top of the hedge.  The adjacent viburnum hedge received the same benefit. So did my camellias and Nellie Stevens Holly. Since seeing is believing I have included before and after photos.

By the way, you may wonder how can one spray the bottom of each leaf of such a tall hedge. Because Bio-Wash25 is from all natural sources, simply walk under the hedge without face mask or gloves or even glasses and spray up and around.

Even birds have returned to building nests in my hedge and I no longer have to hire a commercial service to fertilize and spray my plants.

Thanks again for giving me the information about Bio-Wash.

Golf Courses: For foreign consumers and distributors only.  A distributor is monitoring test results conducted by Texas A&M and Mississippi State University:   The tests are being conducted on various golf courses. In preliminary tests, the 400:1 dilutions are ranging between 85% and 87% effectiveness.  The people who know nemotodes are very impressed.  Additionally, where treated, the grass is noticeably more green and healthier.  The distributor believes every golf course on earth will want this solution.

MIXED @ 400:1  Oil Clean  Before application count  178 nematodes per 100cc sample
after application count 24 nematodes per 100cc sample.  (87%)

MIXED @ 400:1  Oil Clean  Before application count  194 nematodes per 100cc sample

After application count 29 nematodes per 100cc sample
(85%)

Grazing. Grass Alfalfa Mix Hayfield:   Ted,  We are now applying 5oz to the acre for our second cutting.  When completed that will make 8 ounces total this cutting. We will run irrigation back over entire field one more time.    Current observations:

1). Plants look healthier, much new growth just Beginning.

2). Insects seem to be absent.

3). Crop looks fuller.

ForestryBoth these trees had failed to grow in five years. The owner BioWashed the one on the left around May 1, 2011.
The spectacular growth happened in 45 days. The home is in Naples, Florida.

Viticulture: I live in Central Florida just north of Orlando.  I don’t know what I did to get the second crop of grapes.  I nearly fell on the floor from shock when I discovered the second crop of grapes and appreciated the value of the discovery.  I am an engineer, I measure everything, I have a different philosophy of agriculture, and I run several experiments at once, and make educated guesses of what is happening and why (scientifically).

Before Biowash, I was tiring of gardening because I was just feeding the insects and deseases which are prolific in Florida because of the heat and humidity.  So the bugs ate through most of my first crop of grapes.   Then came BioWash.  I used it as a drench, but thought it was a mistake because I was worried about killing beneficial bacteria, which I go through extreme labor and expense to nurture.  This could have caused the second flush of grapes of the picture.  So I stopped using BioWash as a drench, and sprayed all the grape stems and leaves.

I have seen a lot of videos of grape vineyards, and the health of my grape leaves in the photos beat them hands down thanks to BioWash.  Now I am going back to BioWash sprays and drenches.  The 155 picture shows, for completeness of documentation,  the already ripening grapes.

Imagine what this says to have two crops of grapes on the vines for the grape business and wine industry.

I am observing some miracles with my tomatoes.  When I confirm them I will send some pictures.

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).

Bio Wash Environmental Profits


Bio Wash Environmental Profits

In today’s questions, answers and comments, the first comment below comes from our orange grove manager.

Last year I wrote about how Merri and I sprayed our orange groves with Bio Wash.

We recently had a bit of bad news in our orange groves in the form of some root rot.

We had to call in big machines like… this

business-ideas

to yank out 500 (about a third) of our trees so our grove that looked like this… now…

business-ideas

looks like this.

business-ideas

That’s farming for you!  Yet we are excited because…

business-ideas

we just sprayed the 1000+ remaining trees…

Bio Wash

Earlier this year we had some good news when our grove manager wrote: “Last year we used your Bio Wash and we are prepared to use it for you again. The trees do look much better this year.”

Now we have news about how much better the Bio Washed trees look… or are. I am checking annual yields for the area but suspect that a good part of the improvement is from using the Bio Wash.

Last year the grove of 1,500 trees produced 1801 boxes of oranges.

We removed one third of the lower producing trees in a grove management plan. We sprayed the remaining 2/3rd with Bio Wash.

With 500 fewer trees, the grove produced 2,484 boxes of oranges this year!

In other words, last year the average was a yield of about 1.2 boxes of naval oranges a tree. This year the average yield was 2.4 boxes a tree… double.  This increased the income of the grove 37% with 33% less trees.

The second question is about Ecuador real estate pricing. A reader wrote in response to our Bahia Ecuador Beach Bargain message:

That sounds really expensive just for a lot. About a year ago, I saw those colored condos oceanfront that were selling for $18,000

Seems high to me also but I began buying 15 years ago when prices were really down.

My reply: Ecuador real estate prices are escalating and in some areas are now higher than Florida prices. The beach is still where there are bargains.   If you look at beach lots in most parts of the world, you’ll see how relatively inexpensive Ecuador beach real estate remains.

The condos I believe you referred to sold originally at $18,000 before rising to $23,000.  They were off the beach and not in such a nice area.  We took hundreds of delegates to see these units and to the best of my knowledge not one purchased such a condo.

euador-real-estate-tour

Ditto for these really low cost condos in Quito that start at US$29,999 for an 861 square foot 3 bedroom unit.

quito-condos

See how we have refrained from pushing low end Ecuador real estate like these town houses and condos. Our experience is that most expats want more luxury and want to live in the best areas. Hence the price is higher.

Final comment on Winston Churchill’s Quote: A number of readers picked up on my misquote of Winston Churchill in my Micro Business Niche article. Here is an example of the gentle corrections that readers sent:  Good morning Gary,  Always good to read your emails.  I am not probably the only one who feels a need to point this out but I believe the quip is not from the British statesman Winston Churchill but the great American writer, Mark Twain.  And if it had been Churchill, he would have said “rumour” not “rumor”.  

My reply: You are one of several who spotted my error.  I immediately made the change at our site. I am not sure how I jumbled that up.  I seems to me that said it also… perhaps copying Twain as I am thinking I read that in his book “The Second World War”.

However on double checking I could not find the quote attributed to Churchill but found that even Twain was misquoted on this.

Wikipedia’s Misquotations site says:

“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” (or similar) — Mark Twain [C]

• Actual quotation: “The report of my death is an exaggeration.” In 1897 a journalist was sent to inquire after Twain’s health, thinking he was near death; in fact it was his cousin who was very ill. Twain recounted the event in the New York Journal of June 2, 1897. Contrary to popular belief, his obituary was not prematurely published.

You are right about rumour not rumor. Churchill said it himself…”America and Britain are two great countries separated by a common language”

Thanks for letting me know because two other quotes from Churchill I agree with:

“Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.”

and “Eating words has never given me indigestion.”

Have a good weekend!
