New American Shift to Panama


An great demographic trend (which Merri and I have been cashing in one for decades) has added a new dimension that creates unimaginable opportunity in the decades ahead.

The trend was created by lies.  From the 1960s, Americans were promised the world.  They were given broken dreams instead.

Almost every institution… pensions, health care, justice, finance, commerce, government, even religion, all made exciting guarantees, but then let everyone down.

The unfilled expectations started a trend of Americans moving to better places that offered real benefits… not just fake assurances.

Merri and I have been helping readers make moves abroad… first to mountains near Geneva and London (in the 1970s).  Then we focused on the Isle of Man (in the 1980s).  Later we took thousands to Ecuador starting in the 1990s).

When Boomers started retiring the trend of Americans finding better homes picked up pace, a trend that will continue for another decade or more.

Boomers began to retire starting a decade ago. Many found their pensions and social security severely squeezed by inflation, leaving them with one of five options.

#1: Keep working

#2: Move to less expensive areas within the US

#3: Export their retirement

#4: Live in near poverty

#5: Die

Now a new expat trend creates incredible opportunity.

A fortune magazine article “One-third of Americans are ready to ditch the country permanently” shows how the expat trend is expanding dramatically.

The article says: Over a third of Americans (including foreign-born residents), and over half of Millennials, would consider taking a break from the country and moving abroad, according to a new survey from TransferWise.

The survey found that Millennials are the most likely generation to pick up and hop the pond: 55% of those aged 18-34 say they’d consider moving away.  Regardless of staying or leaving, the vast majority of respondents (84%) believe the U.S. could be made more appealing by providing more affordable healthcare, lower taxes and improved education.

Boomers moving abroad created a huge opportunity.  The Millennial shift creates unbelievable new potential!

Millennials, outnumber Boomers, 83.1 million versus 75.4 million according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  The new numbers add combustion to an already explosive trend.

Panama is one of the countries that will benefit most from the American exodus.

Our friend Jackie Lange wrote this about her life in Panama.

Panama offers a lower cost of living than North America or Europe.

My average monthly expenses are only about $1000 a month, including international health insurance. I purchased my house, so I don’t pay rent. Because my house purchase price was only $120,000, I will never have any property taxes. My house insurance is less than $200 a year. And my average electric bill is about $25 a month. My water bill is only $100 a year!

Even if you pay rent, you should be able to keep your monthly living expenses well under $2000 for a couple. In many areas in Panama, you can get a nice furnished 2-bedroom 2-bath rental house for about $700 a month. That price includes all utilities and a weekly gardener.

Many say, including me, that it is a better quality of life in Panama too. Fresh fruits and vegetables are readily available at very affordable prices. It’s quite possible that your health will improve when you move to Panama. Some people have been able to get off all medications after moving to Panama.

Retire in PanamaThere’s so much to do in Panama too! Because you’re retired, you’ll finally have time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. There are hiking groups, cooking classes, gardening groups, birding, live music and dancing… the list goes on and on of things you can do in Panama. If you live at the beach, you may decide to spend a day in the mountains for a change of scenery – it’s only a 1 hour drive. If you live in the mountains it is a 1 hour drive to the Pacific Ocean or a 3 hour drive to the Caribbean Sea.

When you retire in Panama, you’ll meet some very interesting people who come from all over the world to live in beautiful Panama. Your life in Panama will be a totally new experience and adventure.

Compared to many other countries, Panama has better roads and infrastructure like internet, water and electricity.

Panama is known for it’s excellent health care and hospitals including the Cleveland Clinic affiliate Hospital Paitilla and the Johns Hopkins affiliate Punta Pacifica Hospital. Panama’s doctors are well trained and many speak excellent English. A doctor visit is only $12 in Boquete or $40 for a specialist (these prices are not co-pays).

Panama offers retirement and business opportunity as well.

For the past decade the big shift in Panama has been by boomers.   This is in part due to Panama’s retiree discounts.

A big bonus for retirees in Panama is the world famous Pensionado Visa. This residency Visa allows you to live in Panama indefinitely if you want to. And it also entitles you to many discounts like

• 50% off on recreation and entertainment such as movies, theaters, sports, etc.
• 50% off hotels Monday through Thursday (30% off on weekends)
• 50% off passports
• 30% off public transportation like buses, trains, and boats
• 25% off airfare
• 25% off restaurants (15% off fast food)
• 25% off electrical, telephone, and water service
• 20% off doctors and specialists
• 20% off prosthetics and other personal assistance devices
• 15% off hospitals and private clinics
• 15% off dental and optometry services
• 10% off prescription medications
• tax-free importation of household goods, up to $10,000

There’s even a special line at the bank for retirees so you don’t need to wait in long lines ever again.

These retiree discounts add up to BIG SAVINGS for retirees.  The expat shift of Millennials adds up to business opportunity as new energy, new money and huge numbers of  Americans move abroad.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe.  In the 1990s we took investors to Panama, Mexico and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy way to learn Spanish.

See below how my wife Merri was able to create a program that allowed students to be speaking and understanding Spanish in just three days.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak English at all.

You become one of a leading few when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says (bolds are mine): “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling. 

It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English. 

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

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from students who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  

Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Relaxed Concentration sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Teinen Zero


Teinen zero aka “zer0 retirement” is Japanese.

But the concept should be lively everywhere. We live in an era where technology makes the value of our experience worth much more than the cost of acquiring it.

This fact has changed the value of age.

retirement

Image from Mayekawa: Where age is a resource not a handicap (1).  Mayekawa has a policy called teinen zero (zero retirement). At this company, people are free to work as long as they want to. If a person turns 60, is eager to continue and colleagues agree, then employment is guaranteed with no age limit.

We can learn lessons on the value of age in the article “How Aging Japan Defied Demographics and Revived Its Economy” (2).

The article says: Japan has defied expectations and revived its economy by refreshing its labor force with the elderly, women and foreigners,

Now, the country is in its second-longest economic expansion since World War II despite its aging population and low birthrate, the newspaper said.

In 2004, the government raised the social security retirement agent from 60 to 65. It also required companies to either raise or completely abolish retirement age. In some cases, companies began a system for re-employing workers who did retire.

In addition, government officials also introduced programs to get retirees into the workforce and reverse the outmigration of young people. Similar efforts were made to get women into the workforce, the newspaper said.

The government also eased the rules for foreigners to work in Japan. And last month officials created two new visa categories and expects an additional 340,000 mostly blue-collar workers from outside Japan over the next five years.

A USA Today article “More older Americans working” (3) shows that this shift is taking place in USA as well.

usa today

The article says: Older workers are driving job growth as boomers remain in workforce longer

Americans 55 and over made up about half of all employment gains in 2018, according to an analysis of Labor Department data by The Liscio Report, a research publication for investors. That’s an eye-popping share considering that demographic made up only a quarter of last year’s labor force — which includes people working and looking for jobs.

One of the most deadly assumptions is that retirement brings our golden years.

Isaac Asimov is quoted as saying: “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”

Scrub off the idea of retirement!

The concept of retirement, as we know it, began with a political ploy in the late 1800s.  Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck of Germany announced that he would pay a pension to any nonworking German over age 65.   Sneaky politician that he was, he knew that hardly anyone lived to be 65 at the time.  Politics or not, this set the arbitrary world standard for the age when people retired.  The trick worked.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned from this.  He used this age when he pushed for the creation of the Social Security Act of 1935.  This idea of needing to quit being productive at age 65 grew and still worked because the the average life expectancy then was 61 years.

Now the wind is not behind the back of Social Security.  When the program was created in 1935 there was a ratio of approximately 37 workers for every 1 retiree. Today, the ratio is is less than 3 workers per 1 retiree.

The article “A 92-year-old Billionaire Explains Why You Should Never Retire” (4) exemplifies why we should not be caught by the assumption about the age of 65.

The article says: Joseph Segal doesn’t have too many regrets in life.

And in an interview with The Globe and Mail, the 92-year-old Canadian billionaire, who built a fortune through a number of different industries like retail and real estate, says one of the best choices he made was never retiring — despite already having made hundreds of millions of dollars.

“When you keep going, you haven’t stopped and you don’t know where the finish is going to be,” he said about avoiding retirement, adding that fresh business ideas continued to come to him well past 65.

“Life is an aircraft journey,” he said. “You’re ascending when you’re young. You’re cruising when you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s or 70s or whatever. At some point, you descend. I’m descending but I’m fighting it.”

Encore careers  are considered solutions to retirement.  I disagree.  They should be the main act! They should be pinnacle careers!

First of all, why should we need to retire?    If we are not tired in the first place, why re-tire?

The more important question is – “Why are we so tired that we would want to be retired?”

Generally we are tired because we are working too much at something that does not sufficiently fulfill rather than having fun, doing what we love AND earning in the process.  This site focuses on ways to create micro businesses that earn but more importantly are gratifying, fun and make us feel excited to rise in the morning so we can serve the mission we feel needs to be filled.

This is the age of age!  Our best, most profitable, most enjoyable and helpful career should be after age 50, 60 or even 70.

There are numerous economic scenarios that could ruin retirement for many.  Inflation, a falling greenback, another market crash or recession.  Any of these could doom traditional retirement plans.  The timing of these events are beyond our control.

That’s okay because diversification into a business that fulfills and serves can be better than stocks and bonds, cash and gold… all put together.

Right now… cash pays almost nothing.  Bonds are quite sure to lose purchasing power.  Gold could rise or fall.  Shares have come off their all time high which creates a problem of timing.  They could fall.

Invest in your dream!

I had a little health scare during the winter that sent me packing to the ER.  The problem was easily resolved and all the tests, scans, blood tests etc. showed that otherwise I was seriously healthy.

This started me realizing that in my 70s, I have better health, more money and more experience than in my 30s-40s etc and can plan on having 30 years left to put it to work. (My mom’s 95 and still alive and mentally alert).

So that’s my assumption, 30 more years to work.

Well…not quite work.  Those who do what they love, never work.  30 more years of fulfillment through writing.

“Teinen Zero!” That’s a good idea that resolves many concerns and can help you live longer.  Why not make this your new assumption now?

Live Well and Be Free – 5 Global Earning Experiences

Here are 5 global income experiences and 7 business secrets that can help you live well and free anywhere.

I began my international business over 50 years ago and have been creating and running international micro businesses since.

During that time my wife, Merri, and I have been able to live, work and earn all over the world… literally anywhere we wanted because of seven secrets we gained which we share here with you.  We have been blessed with global earning experiences that helped us make millions… but were also fun, such as with British Lordships.

See how this one micro business helped us rub elbows with British Royalty.

gary-scott-international-business

One of Merri’s businesses that worked with British Royalty was featured in Doonesbury.

Global Earning Experience #1:  Lepers.  Our micro businesses have been fulfilling.  Merri started her international business in her 20s (long before she knew me) importing Italian clocks to the USA.  This earned so much ($80,000 in the first year) that she created other micro businesses helping orphans in the Yucatan and Haitian lepers (at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital) produce crafts she sold for them in the USA.

Excellent income ($80,000 in the 1970s was a lot of cash)…  incredible contacts… working with Dr. Larimer and Gwen Mellon who created the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti… and enormous satisfaction.  Merri still cries over 40 years later when she tries to speak of the gratitude of the lepers and her time and life in Haiti.

Plus she gained lessons that allowed her to live and earn… in many places and many ways.

Then we got together.

Global Earning Experience #2:  Lords.  Another of Merri’s ideas (in the mid 1980s) was to broker British titles to wealthy Americans.  We made a ton from that… even gained 15 minutes of fame when Gary Trudeau learned about this business and immortalized it by having B.D. Zonker buy a title!

What fun… profitable, plus stimulating, meeting and working with the Blue Bloods of Britain… visiting their castles… invited to their events and affairs.

Before I get ahead of myself, may I ask you a question?

Would you like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three or even more places wherever and whenever you choose?  Would you be happier with more freedom, lack of debt, and a life of riches, adventure and travel?  Would you be glad to feel confident that you can discover interesting and fun business ideas again and again that not only bring in extra income but also help the poor and improve the environment?

If so then read on… because… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

You can also enjoy such a lifestyle because after years of search, I found business secrets that you can use and enjoy.

Global Earning Experience #3: Hospitality.  Here’s a hotel we owned and operated in Ecuador.  Once we sold this we joined the sharing economy and began offering rentals in our North Carolina cabins through AIRBNB and houses in Florida.  We became designated super hosts within months and added thousands of extra dollars to our income every month.

Caring is just one example of how to live anywhere and earn.  If you provide genuine care in anything you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

gary-scott-international-business

Having a variety of places to live is part of one of the secrets on how to earn more, have a better life with more fun, adventure and greater freedom.

Global Earning Experience #4:  Import-Export.   Here I am at our Florida house showing clients how to import.

gary-scott-international-business

I was wearing a hand tailored, made to order, high quality wool suit from Ecuador that could be imported into the US for as little as $135 .  Plus that Panama hat was made in Ecuador.  This is odd but true, all genuine Panama hats are made in Ecuador.  We imported Ecuador roses year round as well, all from one of our tax deductible US home office.

Dozens-of-roses

The secrets we’ll share below are not about how to buy suits or flowers though.   The secrets show ways to make money (while helping others) marketing products and services wherever you are and much more…. globally.

Global Earning Experience #5:  Green Produce.   We have an orange grove and lake at our Florida home and

gary-scott-international-business

are among the first to test new organic ways to make citrus farming better for the environment and the consumer.  In North Carolina we cultivate Wild American Ginseng as well as aquafarm.

These are just a few of the business experiences that can help you have the freedom to earn globally.  They are shared in our emailed correspondence course, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

The course teaches a system based on seven secrets so powerful that it creates money for you regardless of where you are:  in town, out of the country, traveling or even in places as remote as we live.

These secrets have worked for us in real estate… titles… tours… agriculture… clothing… hospitality… alternative health…  spirituality… printing… publishing and art businesses for Merri and me all over the world.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

Merri and I have created a special program we call “Live Well and Free Anywhere” that makes it possible for you to enjoy extra income doing something you love.  You can gain full or part time and enjoy excellent profits as you have fun and do something good in the world.

My search stumbled on the fact that most millionaires make their money in business.  This discovery led to a study of rich businesses, ones that generate everlasting wealth.  Here are five of seven secrets we learned and have used in our  micro businesses:

Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each investment made needs to make huge returns.

Secret #2: They need to be greater than their owner’s time.  They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income.  You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might.  One surgeon explained it this way.  “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands.  Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops.   My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun.  Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money.  Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun.  The most important fact about making and keeping wealth is that those who were richest absolutely love what they were doing.  Money is of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

These secrets created a fantastic way to make money with my own international micro business doing what I love!

You too can have everlasting wealth by turning your passion into profit.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

You too can have the freedom to do what you love from any place you like, even operating (actually preferably) from your bedroom, dining room or den if you wish.

What do you love? Rare cars?  You can make a fortune creating a business around them.  Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?  Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?

Are you concerned with the environment or humanitarian problems, with crimes, war or poverty?  Would you like to help wipe these social problems out in the course of your business?

Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make all kinds of money in a global business related to golf?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income and live wherever you please in the process!

Whatever your passion you can learn how to earn by creating an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

Take fishing, for example.

I am no great aquafarmer, but the numbers and lifestyle work on a small scale.  We pay about $3.50 a pound to stock the fish, they double, triple, even quadruple in size and we sell them at a local butcher shoppe for a modest profit.   This is not a big deal, but does generate income, helps attract guests to stay in our rental cabins, puts some great trout dinners on our table and is a thoroughly enjoyable part of my daily labor.  I need this to counter balance sitting in front of a computer.

Over a couple of months the fish grow… a lot.

gary scott

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

Millions of people love fishing but don’t have a pond.  This does not mean they cannot be involved in fishing.  Here are just a few of many ways that others have profitably matched this passion with profit.

Two of my friends, John and Lou, grew up near me in the Oregon mountains.  They were outdoor adventure types and moved to Canada, where they homesteaded 1,200 acres on a trout-filled lake in mid British Columbia.  They built a fishing camp that attracts fisherman from around the world.

Duncan Kinderman on the other hand loved fishing and castles.  He bought a castle on the River Tay, a great Scottish salmon river, and offered time shares for fisherman from Britain, Europe and the US.

Another entrepreneur I know was from Montana.  His skills were in marketing so he sold fishing trips for fishing camps.  He attended rod and gun exhibitions, met owners of these camps and arranged to sell their fishing trips to the US, Argentina and even in Russia to fisherman around the world.

Ralph Kylloe on the other hand loved fishing and photography so he created the book, “Fishing Camps”, which was published by Gibbs Smith publisher. This allowed Ralph to travel across the country enjoying fishing camps as he photographed and wrote.

Steve Ambrose, another friend of ours, had family commitments at home so he set up a bass fishing business in Florida that served Americans, Germans, Canadian, Dutch and Belgians.  Later as his children grew, he used his client base to arrange fishing trips in Argentina.

Each of these people had provincial backgrounds and differed in age, situation and skills.  Their common link, the love of fishing, led each to a global micro business.  Each was able to blend a unique nature and set of skills to develop a global business that surrounded them with fun, like minded fishing souls.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international micro business that can be managed almost anywhere.  This program is unique because Merri and I are unique.  We started our global business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves… thus we create micro businesses that do not require large staffs.

We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home on our remote farms and employ only a few people to help.

You can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  You’ll learn how to create your own ads and when to use the internet… search engines… pay per click… classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth… even flea markets and roadside stands in some cases.

See how to build a PR list and social business network on the World Wide Web to gain thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I even share my most secret results on my marketing so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a product at $49 instead of $29.

Learn how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and received free trips all over the world.

Learn how we have made money over the Internet (specific details, specific experiences, hard earned knowledge over the last 13 years!)  With an inexpensive computer you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over – even if you are computer challenged.  Merri and I have certainly proven this.  We were one of the first to run a successful website and still rank high today even with millions of competitors.  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach.

Merri and I with our webmaster, David Cross, were leaders in beginning internet micros businesses and have sold millions over the web.  You gain ways to earn global income over the net from that experience as well.

At www.garyascott.com our emailed messages are regularly sent to over 20,000 readers.

You learn the income producing power of defined focus and immediate repetition to get good search engine rankings and sales.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of business ideas and case studies based on our 48 years of experience.

The course  describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a multi-million dollar international micro business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

Terry T., an attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.

Learn How to Gain Total Security.  Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option.  See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change never a victim of change.

Learn How to Perfect a Lifestyle.  Living as you choose is important because life is short.  Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

Learn How to Market your Product.  Learn truths that rule the market place.  Gain knowledge on subjects like… How to Make the Truth Exciting. Create your own Sales Story…  How to Deal With Cultural Differences…  How to Build Global Lists and Use International PR…  How to Spot the National Psyche and Quadruple Profits With Multimedia Marketing…  How to Choose Businesses as Pioneers or as Settlers.

Tom K., an engineer from Ohio, cashed in on this idea and wrote, “Basically, I learned the selling and marketing implications.  The course is absolutely worth the price!”

Learn  How to Obtain What You Need from the Net.  How to Use the Web to Reach your Market.  How to develop your site, target your market and start getting visits. The top ten Internet tips to use, the top ten traps to avoid, and many other lessons our Webmaster has used in his many years on the net. This system is so simple anyone can use it.

International Business Made EZ contains all these secrets and more.

One delegate, Ted T. a publisher from California said:

“Your course is outstanding! Just two hours of study alone were worth more than the price.”

While Kelly, a business woman from Atlanta, explained:

“It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Even older entrepreneurs are taking advantage of technology.  One of our friends and clients, Mickey E., was a 72 year old real estate broker, when she began a small global business.  With just a computer and internet, she created publications that attracted English real estate buyers.  This allowed her to become a top sales person in the biggest real estate firm (selling over a billion dollars of real estate a year) in town.  She later used the tactics she learned to move to Ecuador (in here late 70s) and start a micro business there.

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

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. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

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.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

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

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email for $299.  You save $598.

What Me “Crazy”?


Is it crazy for a boomer to start a pinnacle career?

Last week a reader sent me this note.

Gary, I am a fervent recipient of your daily messages. The first go to in the AM. I have done marketing for the past four years, including contacting customers and producing brochures.  I also sold advertising in the brochure.  I am interested in SNAP for my county.  BUT, I am 77 years of age.  Am I crazy to consider this?

My reply might help you, if you are asking any similar question about whether to start something new… or not.

I wrote:

Thanks for getting in touch.  I am delighted to know that you are tuning in every day.

In answer to your question….” Am I crazy”, here is a photo I took while hiking this weekend with two friends. We have been hiking for years.  Both amigos are well into their 70s and there is no reason for any of us to stop hiking now.

He does some other awesome stuff.  See about his comments on age and work at a message sent last year about mastery.

A New York Times article last week “Asked About Retiring, They Have a Simple Answer: Why?” (1) helps answer your question as well.

This article is worth a read as it tells the story of 1.5 million Americans over the age of 75, who are still in the paid work force, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Read about Judge Jack B. Weinstein still on the bench at age 96 who says “Retire? I’ve never thought of retiring. I’m a better judge, in some respects, than when I was younger. I don’t remember names. But I listen more. And I’m more compassionate. I see things from more angles. If you are doing interesting work, you want to continue.”

The work gives the judge a purpose to rise at 5 to exercise and commute at 7am to work each day.

Adolfo Calovini, 82, is a New York City high school teacher. He married late and has young children so the income is part of his motivation, but he says: “To me, teaching is about life. This is what I do. I can’t see a time when I wouldn’t.”

At 88, neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel who heads his own research laboratory says, “I like what I do,” he said. “Keeping engaged keeps you intellectually alive. I wouldn’t be surprised if it enhanced longevity. “If you are healthy and enjoy your work, continue. At the very least, it gives you additional income. Even if you don’t need it, the money can be for your kids and grandchildren.”

This seems to be a fact with Kandel. Many are surprised that he is 88.

Dr. Laura Popper, 71, a Manhattan pediatrician, says she works because her profession is a key to her identity.

“I wanted to be a doctor since I was 4 — why would I give that up?” she said. “If you’re a surgeon and you reach a certain age, you have to stop. With pediatricians, as long as you have your marbles, there’s no reason to.”

When her husband raises the subject of retirement, she tells him he would have to take her to a psychiatric hospital the next day.

She says, “There’s no part of me that wants to retire. If you have something you love, there’s nothing else.”

Here are three questions to ask that can help you decide if you should engage in a career past age 65.

#1: Look at the activity.  There is no list of specific jobs suited to pinnacle careers, but careers that use skill and brainpower are more likely to succeed than work that requires brawn and endurance.

#2: Look at who decides when to work.  Mandatory retirement rules can force a shut down of some jobs. Dr. Kandel heads his own research laboratory and is a Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist, so no one is telling him, “it’s time to retire”.

Do not start something that someone else can shut down when you are just hitting your stride!

#3: Look at the possibility of having younger help.  Dr. Popper has been able to continue because she’s self-employed. She co-owns her medical practice, and owns her office space. She has the freedom to adjust her working conditions has slowed down. She sees about half as many patients as she previously did and lets the other co-owner, her partner, who is 25 years younger, take up the slack.

Merri and I are well into our 70s, but our third partner, our webmaster and son-in-law, is in his 50s and can do more as we choose to do less.

The mantra we have preached for decades at this site and before is “Turn your passion into profit”.

Ask yourself, “even if this does not generate great income in the first months,  Will I find this career fulfilling”?

Will this career make your life better?  Will it bring purpose and a reason to arise early and get going every day?

This is an era where the value of our experience is worth more than the cost of attaining it.

If you feel healthy, interested and incited, go for it.  I say incited rather than excited because it’s the quiet voice within, you should hear. Listen for the whisper from your soul telling you who you really are and what you can and really want to do.

That voice is the command to follow rather than the outside noise that bombards our inner selves and tries to lead us in directions dictated by uncaring and hidden agendas.

Regards,

Gary

Earn & Do Good

Live anywhere.  Earn everywhere. Make a difference.

Here’s an old idea that offers profits in a new and different way.   This is an idea that’s good for a community you choose as well as those involved… and it can generate $11,835 a month of profit… or maybe even more.

This report shares this new “old idea”, how to gain freedom, live where you chose, be an important part of your community, have an outstanding income and do some good.

Learn how to earn high income in your own back yard.   Choose where you want that back yard to be.

You can create a lifestyle that you previously could only dream.

Gain 7 powerful benefits when you choose to become involved:

Benefit #1: Freedom.   You set your own hours.  You work when you want to, not  when you are told.   Working at home eliminates a commute unless you count the 8 seconds it takes to walk from the bedroom to your office.   You can even work in your pajamas.  One magazine publisher who helped develop this program says that this is one of his favorite benefits.  You don’t have to ask permission to take time off to attend your children’s sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event.  You have greater control over your earnings and your destiny.  If you want to earn more, give yourself a raise by increasing your revenue.  When you work hard, you are working hard for your benefit and wealth not someone else’s.  Being able to fit your business to circumstances can sometimes be the most important benefit of all.  A small niche publisher had just started their magazine when their daughter was diagnosed with bone cancer.   During their daughter’s hospitalization they were able to be there 24/7… yet continue to build the business. That publisher told me… “This is one of the BEST reasons for owning this type of business, the freedom to work from the hospital room on your laptop and be there when your child needs you the most”.

In another case a small area publisher had started a magazine and was then diagnosed with cancer.  In her darkest hours she was able to continue publishing. See why below.

#2:  You become part of the solution, not part of the problem.  There is so much bad news now all about events we are powerless to change or stop. Helping build a better positive community is something we can actually do.   Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and having a successful small business helps develop strong community economics.

#3:  Prestige (Near Celebrity Status).  One writer who uses this system said: We get invited to everything because people want our magazine to review their events.  Additionally, we are very well known around town.  You have PRESS Credentials.  Some big venues (like NASCAR) require official credentials which you can get by calling the press office.  Other smaller venues you can create your own “PRESS” badge and it usually gets you “behind the scenes” access.  Not to mention, everyone wants to talk to the press so they can end up in the magazine.

One publisher wrote: Being part of the press also (usually) gets you free admission into most events.  Worst case scenario, you trade/barter an ad to gain admission.  We are going to an event today called the “Big Sip”.  Not only did we get free tickets, we got free VIP tickets which gets us into the show early and gives us access to things non-VIP ticket holders will not have access to.

#4:  Service  to the Community.   You can even be philanthropic.  One of the magazines using this system chose two non-profit organizations to support.  One of the things non-profits need is press coverage and advertising.   They give about $10,000 worth of advertising a year to their non-profits and various other groups to help them get the exposure they need.  The reader told us that he gets raves about how his magazine and the content they publish really shines a positive light on the community.  He wrote: We give a voice organizations that normally wouldn’t have one.  We raise awareness to programs being hosted by the myriad of organizations here in town that most people would normally never hear of.  

Save lives.  In one issue of a hyper local magazine, there was a story about a little boy who was struggling with a rare disease that caused life-threatening seizures.  One day, while his mom was out shopping, the little boy had a seizure so she rushed him to the hospital.  She called ahead and the nurse met her at the emergency room. 

As it happened, the nurse had read the article in the magazine (which someone had brought to the nurse’s lounge) and she recognized the little boy from the article. 

Since she knew immediately what was wrong with him, no time was wasted and he was treated quickly.  The magazine publishers were told that this particular seizure was especially bad and that the article probably saved his life.  

This type of special benefit may not happen everyday, but once in a lifetime is good enough.

#5:  You are in the know.  One publisher said: Because we are part of the press, we get a tremendous amount of Press Releases e-mailed to us on a daily basis.  We are usually the first to know about something new going on in town.  If we aren’t the first, we are always included.  And, as part of the research we do for articles, we tend to uncover information people don’t know or have forgotten about.   You can have big-picture perspective without going broke.

#6: You gain respect.  Publishers are the people who bring the information to the rest of the world in an information era.  They are the ones who affect change and because of this, have a tremendous amount of power.  For this reason, people like to say they “know the publisher” and will extend all sorts of courtesies to get to know the publisher.

#7: Tremendous tax benefits.  Many after tax expenditures become tax deductible business expenses. Sometimes you can eliminate federal and state tax altogether.

Why does small niche publishing offers such great potential.

Sam Buffet… or is it Warren Walton?  Hyper local publishing is based on three cherished beliefs that Sam Walton and Warren Buffet shared.

sam buffet

Forbes Magazine listed the 10 wealthiest Americans in an article entitled “The Faces Of Wealth in America”.  Both Buffet and the Walton family were there.

sam buffet

Imagine combining the wealth Walton created with that of Warren Buffet.  You get 150.1 billions dollars… far more than the wealth created by Bill Gates and any other three of the top ten combined… by just these two men.

Sam Buffet and Warren Walton!  What a combination.

So I ask, “Whose footsteps would you like to follow?”

Buffet and Walton shared several cherished business beliefs that you can gain from a special writing and publishing business that is at its very beginning stage.

Cherished Belief #1: Small is Beautiful.  Both Sam Walton (Bentonville, Arkansas) and Warren Buffet (Omaha, Nebraska) chose America’s heartland away from the big cities as their homes.  What’s more Walton chose to do business in these small places as well… building the largest retail operation in the world almost entirely in small towns.

Warren Buffet believes that potential in small towns offers special value.  He believes this so strongly that he has been buying newspapers in small towns.

Over the last few years Buffet’s company, Berkshire Hathaway purchased 63 small and mid-sized daily and weekly newspapers throughout the United States.

He plans to buy more and says: “I like buying individual papers at the right prices.” 

Buffet stated that Berkshire is not buying big newspapers or more newspaper shares.  He is sticking with small publications because he believes in the value of local communities.

Cherished Belief #2:  Community Orientation.

Buffet is not buying big publications but is grabbing up small community focused publications.

His bet is that publications focused on local communities can withstand the shift of readers and advertisers to the Internet.

The individual papers can be really small as 10,000 circulation with tiny staffs.

He said no one has stopped reading “half-way through a story that was about them or their neighbors.”

He also noted, “Berkshire buys for keeps. I’d rather buy newspapers myself directly,” and is seeking papers that publish in cities and towns with a “Sense of  Community.”

From this vision Wal Mart remains committed not just to expanding the business but to improving the communities.

You can enjoy all these benefits through hyper local publishing because small communities can be places, ideas or ideas within places.

For example Burnie Miller, one publisher who attended a Writer’s Camp that Merri and I conducted, founded Healthtrucker.com

There are many magazines about trucking and for truckers, but Healthtrucker.com is just about trucker health and wellness.  Burnie’s business shares his  adventures losing weight, driving truck, and staying healthy on the road.

The factor that makes publications like this successful are common interests.  Common interest can be focused on a geographical area or a niche idea that targets a niche of a larger market. For example the market for truckers is quite large, but trackers that look after their health is a much smaller niche.   One benefit of this type of publishing is it surrounds you with people who have a common interest, so your readers are like minded souls.

Cherished Belief #3:  Seek Good Value.

Sam Walton built one of the largest fortunes in the world… with the simple goals of providing great value and great customer service.  Warren Buffett’s belief is that the essence of value investing is buying stocks at less than their intrinsic value.   The discount is called the “Margin of Safety”.

Both Buffet and Walton shared a vision that small towns… ignored by the mainstream offered good value.  You tap into extra profit potential as a SNAP publisher who helps a small community.

Knowing BOTH successful niche magazine publishers and internet marketing geniuses is important for a reason that Buffet outlined to his publishers when he purchased their papers.  Buffet believes that small newspapers will change and that they serve an important purpose.  He said, “Papers must rethink the industry’s initial response to the Internet as focus on continuing to maintain a strong sense of community“.

His bet is that publications focused on local communities can withstand the shift of readers and advertisers to the Internet.  Buffet has said that giving news away free online is “unsustainable” and has sought papers that publish in cities and towns with a “sense of community.

The need for a sense of community is greater than ever before.   Community creates trust.  As the world has expanded on big is better,  the public has lost trust.  We no longer trust big business, big government, big hospitals, big banks, big publications etc.  Yet publications are of little value if they do not have the reader’s trust.   Internet publishing on the big scale has reduced trust.  Anyone can say anything on the internet and thus internet information is highly suspect.   Publishers who use a small niche to create trust have an advantage.

To begin this introduction let me add one more point and outline the value of what I am about to offer.  One model of publishing in the course shows how to make up to $11,835 a month… or more for a fully guaranteed investment of just $299.  That’s value… plain and simple.

I already knew the person I call the Warren Buffet of the internet… my webmaster, David Cross.

david-cross-image tags:"2012-4-21"

David has an unparalleled, hands-on marketing experience spanning 25 years in 22 countries for companies and charities large and small. He’s guided many companies and individuals to success in business and helped them achieve their marketing goals, both online and offline.   He started working with the internet from the getgo and Merri and I have been lucky that he helped start my website in the 1990s.

He was also Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD.  David worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and over an 8-year period helped to propel Agora’s online revenues to over $300 Million.

So half of Buffet’s value equation was there.

Merri’s and my lives have been involved in the second half of this equation.

Merri’s first publishing career was as executive editor of Gulfshore Life.  Gulfshore Life magazine began in 1970 and not long after Merri became executive editor.  The niche was Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, from Fort Myers and Cape Coral down to Naples and Marco Island.  The magazine covered local personalities and pursuits, from arts and entertainment to fashion, real estate and earned many awards for writing, design and publishing excellence, including recognition as Best Overall Magazine two years in a row from the Florida Magazine Association.

While Merri was editor she was well paid for the exciting privilege of addressing the leading edge of important issues.

Merri attacked pollution in Naples Bay with an “Our Water Dilemma.” story in 1977, and was writing about computers before they became  mainstream. One of her stories was  “Don’t let the word ‘computer’ frighten you”.

She enjoyed putting together travel stories and was invited to many places including Haiti, St.Kitts and many other exotic Caribbean ventures and to the record-breaking opening tour of the “Treasures of  Tutankhamun”.  Her ventures through the years in Haiti working with the Mellon family with leprosy changed her life forever.  She had many experiences there and wrote articles and encouraged the lepers to utilize their artistic talents through weaving and painting.  Even today, when I ask her about that period of her life (onstage or off), she always breaks into tears remembering the suffering of those people.

Merri

She was able to meet many famous people like author John D. MacDonald, Robert Rauschenberg, and Lilly Pulitzer and many others.  She became acquainted with the best selling English authoress, P.D. James, who shared many of her writing secrets which became a major influence in Merri’s writing life.

These personal examples show that a small area publishing business can help you immerse your lifestyle with like minded souls and people who have common interest from all walks of life.

Of course, there is capital gain potential as well.

The major focus of this report looks at how to earn a good income, in some instances, niche magazines can create huge capital gains.  In the case of Gulfshore Life, when the cost of Naples real estate exploded into the stratosphere, this magazine sold to Curtco, publisher  of Robb Report and several other luxury niche magazines, for a strong eight figure price.  I have been told $23 million though I have not been able to confirm this price.

In another example, Felix Dennis made $250 million on selling a few small niche area magazines.

Felix Dennis, a niche magazine publisher of small niche magazines such as Kung Fu World,  ComputerShopper, PCWorld, Maxim and The Wee sold his US small niche magazines Blender, Maxim and Stuff for a reported $250 million dollars.

That was a really healthy capital gain.

He continued to publish small niche magazines and was publishing more than 50 magazines at his passing in 2013.  Profits in that year were more than $100 million. His estate was estimated at near $1 billion dollars.

Felix did not inherit this either.  His beginnings were modest.  His grandparents raised him in a house with no electricity or indoor bathroom.  He left school at 15 to work as a gravedigger, store-window dresser, sign painter and blues drummer before getting a job as at the small magazine Oz.

He built these humble origins into a fortune that provided him with a garage full of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys, a 16th-century thatched manor on his estate near Stratford-upon-Avon, a house in London, an apartment in Manhattan and houses in Connecticut and on the Caribbean island of Mustique.

What are the odds of getting this rich?

Dennis himself shares the fact that most niche publishers will not make a hundred million dollar capital gains.  He notes that the odds are only 25 chances in a million.  Not as bad as the lottery, but not that encouraging either.

Though it is unlikely that you’ll earn this type of capital gains with a small niche publishing business, I mention this fact because the possibility does exist.

Purpose, income and lifestyle opportunities are the main reasons to be a small niche publisher.  

Dennis for example felt that his passions were more important than the money.  He had a passion for forestry conservation and used his niches to plant a large native broadleaf forest, and found a registered charity The Heart of England Forest Ltd.   Not long before his passing, Dennis planted the millionth tree, an oak sapling, at a special ceremony.

He bequeathed a reported 80% of his fortune to ensure that the project will continue. Over a thousand acres have been planted and will will continue indefinitely with the aim of eventually providing between 10,000 and 20,000 acres, the largest private forest in England opened to the public with educational facilities for schools as well as provide green burial services to the local area.

A more typical example of small niche magazine publishing are Dave and Sherry Johnson who attended one of our Self Publishing courses.  I discovered that Dave and Sherry published a couple of magazines in North Carolina when they enrolled for the course… but what I did not know was the value of what they had developed in publishing small town community magazines.

Dave started as a media marketer and has sold most media including radio, cable television, direct mail, magazine, yellow pages, newspaper and Internet.

He enjoyed great success until times turn sour during the 2007 recession as they did for so many.  Being under the gun, Dave and Sherry lost everything so they moved to Asheboro, North Carolina and started their own magazine which has risen from success to success.

Time and Place

The old adage is to be in the right time and at the right place.  Imagine this timing… 2009 with the US facing a sluggish economy and risking a double dip recession.

The place?   Forbes magazine highlighted Asheboro, North Carolina in 2008 but not in a way you would think.

Forbes’s article was entitled “In Depth: America’s Fastest-Dying Towns” and said:  Asheboro is one of the few places in North Carolina where domestic migration rates fell between 2000 and 2007, from 10.5% to 1.9%. Poverty surged from 15.7% to 26.7% as incomes declined by 9.5%. The city, built on manufacturing and heavy industry for everything from batteries to tires, has yet to find a new niche.

There they were… Dave and Sherry… starting a magazine on a shoestring… (or  perhaps a little less)… in the fourth fastest dying town in the US.  Sherry put it this way…  “Failure was not an option.  We had to make a profit before we published our first edition”.   They did and the magazine rose from success to success.

asheboro

This is the issue they published on their 5th year anniversary of Asheboro Magazine (1).

The Johnson’s hyper local business created enormous freedom as well.

When they fell in love with Ecuador, their move there was supported by a new small area magazine when they created Cuenca Expat Life (2).

snap magazine

When I heard this story and read their magazine I let no moss gather beneath my feet and began testing ways to help subscribers publish their own hyper local publication… profitably… immediately… in just a month or two.

Part of this course shows how to create income with a Small Niche publication.

Here is how we can serve you.  Merri and I have had a long career in publishing.   As mentioned after Merri’s stint as executive editor of Gulfshore Life she then joined me in publishing our newsletters and later producing our daily ezine.  Later we helped a small niche regional magazine, Natural Awakenings, which was on the verge of bankruptcy, turn itself around and become a national publication.

Today Natural Awakenings claims to be growing as they have reached 90 markets in a thriving niche community of over 3.8 million responsive readers.   Each magazine is operated by an independent small niche magazine publisher.

We also worked with a SNAP magazine in Spain that had Latin American potential.

snap

This is an English language magazine in Spain that has South American expansion possibilities.

The owner stated that this magazine is earning around $250,000 a year.

The Sentinella (3) is an English magazine on the Costa del Sol, known as the ‘little mag that fits in your bag’.  It is aimed at expats who have moved abroad for a better life. The Sentinella has been established in Spain for more than seven and a half years. There are now five magazines operating along the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and the coast of Almeria.

We have combined all these experiences into a 31 step checklist that can help help you publish your own small niche magazine.

Your own small magazine allows you to put your desire to profit through writing to work.

As an small niche publisher you can publish niche publications dedicated to representing, encouraging and celebrating the community (whether it is a place or an idea) you serve by focusing on the lifestyles, talents, gifts and contributions of the people who are like minded souls.

Our course is designed to show you how to earn as much as $11,835 a month.

Merri and I see hyper local magazines as one of the most important services we have been able to bring to our readers… ever.  This service helps our readers write to sell… to enjoy working with like minded souls and to bring a positive influence to communities.

We tested the market and found that the principles of this type publishing are so powerful that it is possible to achieve success even in the most adverse circumstances.  Take for example the success story that Perla Crosby has achieved in Sanford Florida.

Benny and Perla Crosby used the course to start a magazine dedicated to Sanford Florida, a small charming town on Lake Monroe, the headwaters of the St. John River.    Perla’s magazine MySanford Magazine (4) magazine began with a great success but as it started to develop, disaster struck.

Here is what Benny Crosby wrote about how the course helped  during her hardest of times:

mysanford magazine

Benny & Perla Crosby from an issue of Mysandfordmagazine.

I might add that my wife Perla, even during some dark moments during two cancer surgeries was able to continue her focus on getting the latest issue of her magazine out on time.  Her advertisers have continued to increase and I am pleased to announce that the Chamber of Commerce, The Orlando Sanford Airport Authority and National Airlines are having an event on March 29th, 2016 in Sanford (wish you both could be here) to recognize Perla and the magazine and to announce that “My Sanford Magazine” has been adopted as the official seat back magazine for the airline.

It will be available on all National airlines flights out of Sanford to Puerto Rico and British Columbia.  I thought you might be proud to know that you both have contributed to Perla’s success and we wanted to share this exciting news with you.

You can earn this type of income by building a hyper local publication focused on what you love.

Hyper local does not have to focus on a place.  It can zero in on a hobby, sport, profession or common interest.  What do you love?  Rare cars?  You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love.  Do you prefer fine art?   Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?

Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?  Are you concerned with the environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty?  Would you like to help wipe them out?  Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to travel?  Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income in the process and live wherever you please!   You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.

You can publish about almost anything that interests you.

Take the small area magazine Rebel Riders… “because all of us have a little renegade in us”, a perfect example of how focused on a passion one can be.

snap mag

This magazine is about closely focused as a publication can get… not just for riders, but for rebel riders… in Central Florida.   Advertisers include three full pages from attorneys… “Been in an accident – Call us”.  There are many biking events and bike fests… meets and swaps advertised.  Dozens of bars and restaurants that cater to bikers have ads.  Several motorcycle dealers, sales, repairs and custom cycle shops.  American Legion Post 35 (“For God and Country”) has an ad.  There is a full page for Twisted Tea (“True Iced Tea taste”), a couple of insurance agencies, one financial planner and Theater X (“adult novelties and DVDs”).

Small area publishing can also help you travel, even have an international lifestyle so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere.  This is especially valuable if you love to travel.  For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live and published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.

Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country.  Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years.  We earned by publishing our experiences there.

Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA.  We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren.  We still write (and publish) about what we love and are doing!   In each phase of our lives, the idea of tight focus has allowed us to move and live where we desired.

Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel.  Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business.  Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event

Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection.  Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution.  You do not need a license to publish.  There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.  The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.

The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.

We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business.  This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique.  We started our publishing business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves.  We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person.  When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.

May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.

The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself.   The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers numerous income producing secrets:

Secret #1:  How to gain 1,000% returns.  See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  This online course contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #2:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, the course shows how one friend, before the Internet, never wanted to write and decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.  Now of course publishers who do not want to write can use the internet.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing blunders and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29.  I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.

Secret #3: When to print, how to print and when to go online only.  How to print and fulfill.  Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #4: How to compute and use the Internet.  With an inexpensive computer, you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over-even if you are computer illiterate.  Merri and I have proven this!  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do.   Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.

The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business.  For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net.

We unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation.  This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.

See how when we reached retirement age, we slowed down our self publishing business but still earned $2,404725.98, tax free, over the next ten years.

However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.

I have created this course in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies.  You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes.  All his flying became tax deductible!

You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.

This course is not theoretical.  It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away.  I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.

I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public.  We conducted a course charging $2,000.  Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.

For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:  “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it.  We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction.  Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

Get the Wind Behind You


Success is easiest when the wind’s behind our back.  This means there is good news for boomers who are aware of changing winds with the idea of retirement at 65.

wsj.com

Here is some goods news for Boomers.  This chart from the Wall Street Journal article “Working at 85: The Idea of Retirement Is Dying in Japan” (1) shows that the US has the second largest proportion of people in the workforce who are aged over 65.  I’ll explain why this is good news in a moment.

First, let’s ask, “Why 65?”   The concept of retirement, as we know it, began with a political ploy in the late 1800s.  Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck of Germany announced that he would pay a pension to any nonworking German over age 65.   Sneaky politician that he was, he knew that hardly anyone lived to be 65 at the time.  Politics or not, this set the arbitrary world standard for the age when people retired.  The trick worked.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned from this and used this age when he pushed for the creation of the Social Security Act of 1935.  This idea of needing to quit being productive at age 65 grew and still worked because the the average life expectancy then was 61 years.

Now the wind is not behind the back of Social Security.  When the program was created in 1935 there was a ratio of approximately 37 workers for every 1 retiree. Today, the ratio is is less than 3 workers per 1 retiree.

Compounding the problem is the increase in the average life expectancy.  Even though the US life expectancy has fallen behind many other developed nations, the expected age of 61 has lengthened to almost 80 years.  Yet the idea of a retirement age remains at 65.

This compounds the problem.  There are more beneficiaries versus workers and these beneficiaries are receiving payments for much longer periods of time.  This is a demographic gale blowing against Social Security.

A big chunk of the world’s population arrange their entire lives based on a cheap political trick that the nation can no longer pull off.  There is a demographic gale blowing against Social Security.  The numbers no longer work. Fortunately they do not need to.

Here is the good news for Boomers.

The WSJ.com article “Working at 85: The Idea of Retirement Is Dying in Japan” shows how the changes in the winds of retirement are causing the  Japanese government, concerned about the costs of supporting an aging populace, to encourage companies to keep older people in the workforce longer and offering subsidies to some that employ workers over 65.

The article says (bolds are mine):  Companies typically figure they are dumping high-price workers who are past their prime. But some are realizing that can be shortsighted, especially in a sales business when the people walking out the door have client lists that took decades to build. Who better to target consumers in their senior years than other seniors?

Daiwa Securities Group Inc. used to set an age limit of 70 for veteran salespeople working under contract. It recently scrapped the limit.  “This will make it possible for us to have more consultants in the age range of 60 to 80, which is similar to the generation that holds the largest financial assets,” says the brokerage’s chief executive, Seiji Nakata.

The clue in this article about Japan that can help us in North America is the sentence highlighted in bold. “Who better to target consumers in their senior years than other seniors?”

With the rapid technological change taking place on earth, we live in an era where the value of our experience is worth more than the cost of getting it.  Previous generations were worn out when they reached 65.  Today, we can be in perfect health, active, alert and strong, ready to go.  Even if we are not physically strong, who cares?  Muscles are no longer a highly paid asset in any industry except sports.  Intelligence, experience, contacts, value, grit and willingness to work and get the job done are the qualities that receive premium payments now.

As Boomers, we are part of the second largest and wealthiest demographic group that has ever existed.  We are in the best position of all to succeed in this marketplace.  The wind is behind our back.

The fact that the US has the second largest proportion of people in the workforce who are aged over 65, means that Boomers still need help and this problem creates opportunity.

These facts give Boomers a chance to create a pinnacle career connected to their personal destiny.  This is such a benefit because when we are connected to our destiny… to some tiny, but important part we can add to humanity’s existence we gain fulfillment as well as financial stability.

Merri and I have learned this fact as we followed our destiny and shifted the focus our activity again and again to what we loved.  We actually retired in the traditional Western business sense 20+ years ago.  We sold our print publishing business, went to Ecuador, bought a hacienda and lived with a yatchak and his apprentices, to learn more about maintaining natural good health.  We had no business plans but started a small website because this is what we loved doing.  That website grew to be the largest about expat living in Ecuador.

Then our destiny led us to return to Smalltown USA in 2009 and the focus of our writing shifted again.  Now we have AIRBNB rentals  and grow trout.  Plus our website contains well over 6,000 posts that have been sent to tens of thousands of readers every day.  Most of our readers are Boomers, because who can understand the wants, needs and desires of a Boomer, better than a Boomer.  We are still serving and enjoying doing what we love.

A pinnacle career is a destiny career.  Follow the path that nature sends you.  Look for a wind behind your back.   Serve… doing something that is good for a community of like-minded souls that brings you a satisfying and financially rewarding non-retirement.

Follow those steps and I promise… you’ll feel bright and anxious to get going every day.  A Pinnacle Career is a better alternative to retirement at 65.

One Week’s Effort – Ten Year’s Pay

Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report about financial secrets.

gary scott

The report sold well and generated an immediate and excellent income.  Now it’s long out of date.  I just have this one copy left, stored in my archives.

However those ten days of effort, three decades ago, started a chain of events that creates residual income for Merri and me to this very day.  Even better the ten days effort should continue to create income for us for many years more.

Learn how to use brief efforts that create extra income now and continue to pay you for years… even though you don’t do a thing after the first effort.   These lessons even show how to generate cash flow that lasts so long, your heirs will enjoy the income too.

Learn how to do a little work for a lot of income, that comes in, again and again.   See nine secrets below on how a small independent at-home-business can generate long tail income (money that comes in again and again) from one small effort.

Learn how to easily gain the most important things in life;  freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction… with very small amounts of money and time.

Here are five of nine secrets, for creating long tail wealth:

Secret #1: The business must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each venture in the business needs to make a huge return to start and then continue generating earnings year in and year out.

Secret #2: The business needs to be more than its owner.  It must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort.  You may already be wealthy or earning a high income.  You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might.  One surgeon explained it this way. “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands.  Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops.  My entire financial well-being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3: The money making system must have a purpose beyond money and be enjoyable and fun!  Sad but true, most of us make money for the sake of making money.  Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun.  The most important fact I learned about making and keeping wealth was that those who were richest absolutely loved what they were doing and felt they were doing something that was good!  Money was of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more!

Secret #4: The money making system must be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.  The business must have resilience-so if times turn tough, they can evolve and turn change into even more income.

Secret #5: The business must be able to start small, but grow large.  I learned that business ideas work best with small starts to begin and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time, it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it can grow larger with higher income.

The way to make money in this way is by publishing to sell!   Almost anyone can make more than respectable income when they publish to sell.  Publishing to sell fits all five secrets above, even if you never write a thing.  We’ll look at the other four secrets in a moment.

Publishing is not writing!  Publishing is the business that makes money from writing.  You may have read or heard about the great wealth good writers can make.  Guess what?  Writers make that money from a royalty paid to them by a publisher.  The royalty is normally 15% of the book’s wholesale sales, after returns.  Guess who makes the other 85%?  Guess whose decisions make or break the fortunes of the writer?  The publisher!

Publishing to sell is a business where you get the 85% from publishing,  PLUS MORE… and have extra earnings that just keep keep rolling in, year after year.

Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering words.

“Publishing-to-Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important valuable information, but also leads to the sale of other publications, services or products.

For example, Merri and I used publishing to sell in Ecuador.  We published a report about living in Ecuador.  This was an informative report that helped thousands of readers move there.  The report also outlined the benefits of our Ecuador real estate tours and Super Thinking Spanish courses.  That particular effort starting in 1995 created a million dollar business that still generates earnings to this day even though we have not been in Ecuador for many years.

Here are other examples.  One publisher who used the course, Joe Culbertson, D.C.  is a chiropractor.  Eating junk food creates numerous problems including difficulties in the spine so Dr. Joe created a simple use-at-home spinal device to help the spine.  He published a series of articles about the spine.  Those articles helped sell a three part book he published  Secrets of the Spine: The True Mind/Body Connection.  The book helped him sell his spinal device.

Another smart self publisher, Jamie Alexander, who used our self publishing course, has a cooking school.

Jamie started her professional baking career at age 20 when she apprenticed under the best-selling cookbook author, Nathalie Dupree.  When she was living in Paris, she studied at LaVarenne, the Cordon Bleu Cooking School and with the pastry chef of Maxim’s.  Her health problems created by high blood sugar levels caused her to have a passion about baking in a healthy way.  She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.

You have my word for it, these cakes are delicious and there is not an ounce of sugar or white flour! What a treat!

jamie alexander

Jamie Alexander’s recipes are for sale at Amazon.com and include “Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownies”, “Reid’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Quinoa Brownies”, “Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa Cake” and “New Orleans Espresso-Infused Chocolate Quinoa Cake”.  See all five Jamie Alexander quinoa stevia recipes below. 

The sale of these recipes are really valuable and worthwhile, but they also help sell Jamie’s New Orleans cooking classes!

You can write what you publish to sell or publish what others write to sell.   Some writers, like myself write and also publish.  That’s because 85% of the income from printed publications normally goes to the publisher.

You can earn as a writer.  You can earn as a publisher.  You can publish, or write, or both!  You can also generate long term income from what your publication sells.

Publishing to sell can create outrageously high long term income for little work and you can do it from your home, in an RV or even while cruising or living on a boat or traveling.  It is possible to generate large amounts of extra income month after month, year after year.

Publishing to Sell has become better, much… much better.   Our early success above (the ten days of effort that still earns 30 years later) began when our publishing-to-sell business was in print.   When the Internet became popular and we created a website (in the 1990s), the cost of publishing risk went into a steep dive due to a new advertising medium called Pay Per Click (PPC).  Prior to PPC the biggest part of every publishing venture was paper, printing and postage.  If a publication was mailed, and not read, the paper, the printing and the postage still had to be paid for.  The cost of sending publications which were never opened, created a huge risk.

PPC means that a publisher today only pays from the delivery of a publication when it is opened.  This dramatically reduces upfront cost and risk.

Freedom is the most important benefit.

In the 1970s, I had what I thought was a good business but to be honest I could never get ahead.  I always seemed to be in debt.  The harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in.  My financial situation robbed me of freedom.

Then I discovered publishing to sell.  Since then our publishing-to-sell business has brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desire, more houses than we could use (we rent them), two tropical beachfront homes and a Tuscan inspired villa in the mountains overlooking a roaring creek, a 250 acre farm and a 900 acre plantation in Ecuador, plus more than enough money in the bank.

Our income exceeds our expense.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have as much leisure as we choose.

We are free to work when we want and can decide when we want to slow down and relax.

We live where we like and most important, we arise from bed without an alarm, work without undue stress and have fun every day!

My wife, Merri, and I are our own bosses and do what we love.  We have learned that through publishing to sell, we can accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short, we get paid helping make ourselves and the world a better place.

What do you love?  Rare cars?  You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love.  Do you prefer fine art?   Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?

Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?  Are you concerned with the environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty?  Would you like to help wipe them out?  Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to travel?  Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income in the process and live wherever you please!   You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.

Publishing to sell can also be international so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere.  This is especially valuable if you love to travel.  For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live so published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.

Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country.  For example, there is currently a huge growth in domestic tourism.  Self publishers are in a position to do something about it… by selling U.S. knowledge everywhere!

Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years.  We earned by publishing our experiences gained in each place.

Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA. We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren.  We still publish to sell!  In each phase of our lives, the publish-to-sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired.

Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel.  Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business.  Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event

For example, you’ll see how when we reached retirement age, we slowed down our self publishing business but still earned $2,404725.98, tax free, over the next ten years.

Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection. Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution.  You do not need a license to publish.  There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.  The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.

The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.

We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business.  This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique.  We started our publishing business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves.  We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person.  When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.

May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.

The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself.  The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers the five secrets I mentioned above and the four additional secrets below:

Secret #6:  How to gain 1,000% returns.  See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  This online course contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #7:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, the course shows how one friend, before the Internet, never wanted to write and decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.  Now of course publishers who do not want to write can use the internet.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing blunders and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29.  I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.

Secret #8: When to print, how to print and when to go online only.  How to print and fulfill.  Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #9: How to compute and use the Internet.  With an inexpensive computer, you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over-even if you are computer illiterate.  Merri and I have proven this!  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do.   Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.

The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business.  For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net.  We unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation.  This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.

However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.

I have created this course in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies.  You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes. All his flying became tax deductible!

You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.

This course is not theoretical.  It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away.  I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.

I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public.  We conducted a course charging $2,000.  Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.

For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:  “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it.  We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction.  Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Learn how to choose the format that suits you, full or part time.

Lesson #4:  How to Publish to Sell.  Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

Every generation thinks differently.  Even subsections within generations have different mindsets and world views.  We profit from better understanding the wants, needs and desires of each generation. More importantly we profit most from knowing more about how we react and think.

generations

Generation chart at the www.careerplanner.com

We are individuals influenced by a common consciousness, that binds us to one group.  We call these groupings,  “Generations”.   Each generation has its own collective slogans, styles, norms, ideals, and experiences that have had a fundamental formative influence on our attitudes, thoughts, emotions that drive the way we act.

The most powerful influences are those that took place when we were aged 16 to 21.  This fact creates a human phenomenon called Cohort Synchronization.  This essentially says that we as age groups are affected for life by what happens to us at around this formative age of 18.

Generations run about 20 years.  Subsets in the generations are caused when economies have severe ups and downs.  For example, Jonsers (people born 1952-1956) think differently than Boomers, (born in 1946 through 1952).

Boomers were promised the world and we got it (I was born in 1946).  Jonsers were promised the world but came onto the job market during a recession caused by the oil crisis.  Thus Jonsers have always been more conservative, price conscious buyers than Boomers until they approach the age of 50 when they saw that life was passing them by.  They saw that they had better get going while they still could.

Cohort Synchronization works in many ways.  For example, when we hear music that was prevalent when we were in the 16 to 21 age range, we generally feel better, younger, more alive.  Music that was popular when we were about age 18 maintains high emotional impact.  Music that works for boomers may not for Jonsers, Generation X or Millennials.

Images differ as well.  Say the word Elvis, Boomers picture a young, trim man, Jonsers see him fat, sweating in a gold tracksuit.   GenXers imagine Elvis Costello (Costello’s big hots were late 1970s when the first GenXers were about 18 years of age).

Cohort Synchronization affects politics as well.  Barack Obama (born 1961) is a Jonser so his attitudes were different enough to have a different mindset when it comes to understanding the cohorts they represent.  Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are Boomers.  This insight provides numerous possibilities about who might win an election.

Millennials are now the largest generation.  They surpassed Baby Boomers.  Those aged 18-34 number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69).  Generation Xers (ages 35-50 in 2015) are also rising versus Boomers and are projected to pass this group in about ten years.

generations

Chart from Pewresearch.org

This will be the Boomers last big fling at control.   This influence won’t be as strong as in the past.  Since commonly held values in each generation remain across the generation’s lifespan, the overall population’s aspirations today, political and otherwise, will shift due to the Millennial and GenXer population advantage.

The next President and Congress will need a different set of strategic insights for political effectiveness.  Business will have to shift to what it offers and how it provides service.  The nation’s thinking will evolve.

These changes can bring angst or profit.  Our logic, emotions and how we act and feel can improve if we look at the cohort values of all generations and reflect on how our own cohort feelings and thoughts mix with these changing tides of aspiration that move the world and our nation.

Live Well and Be Free – 5 Global Earning Experiences

Here are 5 global income experiences and 7 business secrets that can help you live well and free anywhere.

I began my international business over 50 years ago and have been creating and running international micro businesses since.

During that time my wife, Merri, and I have been able to live, work and earn all over the world… literally anywhere we wanted because of seven secrets we gained which we share here with you.  We have been blessed with global earning experiences that helped us make millions… but were also fun, such as with British Lordships.

See how this one micro business helped us rub elbows with British Royalty.

gary-scott-international-business

One of Merri’s businesses that worked with British Royalty was featured in Doonesbury.

Global Earning Experience #1:  Lepers.  Our micro businesses have been fulfilling.  Merri started her international business in her 20s (long before she knew me) importing Italian clocks to the USA.  This earned so much ($80,000 in the first year) that she created other micro businesses helping orphans in the Yucatan and Haitian lepers (at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital) produce crafts she sold for them in the USA.

Excellent income ($80,000 in the 1970s was a lot of cash)…  incredible contacts… working with Dr. Larimer and Gwen Mellon who created the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti… and enormous satisfaction.  Merri still cries over 40 years later when she tries to speak of the gratitude of the lepers and her time and life in Haiti.

Plus she gained lessons that allowed her to live and earn… in many places and many ways.

Then we got together.

Global Earning Experience #2:  Lords.  Another of Merri’s ideas (in the mid 1980s) was to broker British titles to wealthy Americans.  We made a ton from that… even gained 15 minutes of fame when Gary Trudeau learned about this business and immortalized it by having B.D. Zonker buy a title!

What fun… profitable, plus stimulating, meeting and working with the Blue Bloods of Britain… visiting their castles… invited to their events and affairs.

Before I get ahead of myself, may I ask you a question?

Would you like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three or even more places wherever and whenever you choose?  Would you be happier with more freedom, lack of debt, and a life of riches, adventure and travel?  Would you be glad to feel confident that you can discover interesting and fun business ideas again and again that not only bring in extra income but also help the poor and improve the environment?

If so then read on… because… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

gary-scott-international-business

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

gary-scott-international-business

A group of readers visiting our North Carolina home after learning how to gain freedom with a micro business.

You can also enjoy such a lifestyle because after years of search, I found business secrets that you can use and enjoy.

Global Earning Experience #3: Hospitality.  Here’s a hotel we owned and operated in Ecuador.  Once we sold this we joined the sharing economy and began offering rentals in our North Carolina cabins through AIRBNB and houses in Florida.  We became designated super hosts within months and added thousands of extra dollars to our income every month.

Caring is just one example of how to live anywhere and earn.  If you provide genuine care in anything you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

gary-scott-international-business

Having a variety of places to live is part of one of the secrets on how to earn more, have a better life with more fun, adventure and greater freedom.

Global Earning Experience #4:  Import-Export.   Here I am at our Florida house showing clients how to import.

gary-scott-international-business

I was wearing a hand tailored, made to order, high quality wool suit from Ecuador that could be imported into the US for as little as $135 .  Plus that Panama hat was made in Ecuador.  This is odd but true, all genuine Panama hats are made in Ecuador.  We imported Ecuador roses year round as well, all from one of our tax deductible US home office.

Dozens-of-roses

The secrets we’ll share below are not about how to buy suits or flowers though.   The secrets show ways to make money (while helping others) marketing products and services wherever you are and much more…. globally.

Global Earning Experience #5:  Green Produce.   We have an orange grove and lake at our Florida home and

gary-scott-international-business

are among the first to test new organic ways to make citrus farming better for the environment and the consumer.  In North Carolina we cultivate Wild American Ginseng as well as aquafarm.

These are just a few of the business experiences that can help you have the freedom to earn globally.  They are shared in our emailed correspondence course, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

The course teaches a system based on seven secrets so powerful that it creates money for you regardless of where you are:  in town, out of the country, traveling or even in places as remote as we live.

These secrets have worked for us in real estate… titles… tours… agriculture… clothing… hospitality… alternative health…  spirituality… printing… publishing and art businesses for Merri and me all over the world.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

Merri and I have created a special program we call “Live Well and Free Anywhere” that makes it possible for you to enjoy extra income doing something you love.  You can gain full or part time and enjoy excellent profits as you have fun and do something good in the world.

My search stumbled on the fact that most millionaires make their money in business.  This discovery led to a study of rich businesses, ones that generate everlasting wealth.  Here are five of seven secrets we learned and have used in our  micro businesses:

Secret #1: They must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each investment made needs to make huge returns.

Secret #2: They need to be greater than their owner’s time.  They must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income.  You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might.  One surgeon explained it this way.  “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands.  Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops.   My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3: These money making systems should be enjoyable and fun.  Sadly most people make money for the sake of making money.  Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun.  The most important fact about making and keeping wealth is that those who were richest absolutely love what they were doing.  Money is of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

These secrets created a fantastic way to make money with my own international micro business doing what I love!

You too can have everlasting wealth by turning your passion into profit.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

You too can have the freedom to do what you love from any place you like, even operating (actually preferably) from your bedroom, dining room or den if you wish.

What do you love? Rare cars?  You can make a fortune creating a business around them.  Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever?  Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects?

Are you concerned with the environment or humanitarian problems, with crimes, war or poverty?  Would you like to help wipe these social problems out in the course of your business?

Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make all kinds of money in a global business related to golf?

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together?  You can do something good for the world, increase your income and live wherever you please in the process!

Whatever your passion you can learn how to earn by creating an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

Take fishing, for example.

I am no great aquafarmer, but the numbers and lifestyle work on a small scale.  We pay about $3.50 a pound to stock the fish, they double, triple, even quadruple in size and we sell them at a local butcher shoppe for a modest profit.   This is not a big deal, but does generate income, helps attract guests to stay in our rental cabins, puts some great trout dinners on our table and is a thoroughly enjoyable part of my daily labor.  I need this to counter balance sitting in front of a computer.

Over a couple of months the fish grow… a lot.

gary scott

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

Millions of people love fishing but don’t have a pond.  This does not mean they cannot be involved in fishing.  Here are just a few of many ways that others have profitably matched this passion with profit.

Two of my friends, John and Lou, grew up near me in the Oregon mountains.  They were outdoor adventure types and moved to Canada, where they homesteaded 1,200 acres on a trout-filled lake in mid British Columbia.  They built a fishing camp that attracts fisherman from around the world.

Duncan Kinderman on the other hand loved fishing and castles.  He bought a castle on the River Tay, a great Scottish salmon river, and offered time shares for fisherman from Britain, Europe and the US.

Another entrepreneur I know was from Montana.  His skills were in marketing so he sold fishing trips for fishing camps.  He attended rod and gun exhibitions, met owners of these camps and arranged to sell their fishing trips to the US, Argentina and even in Russia to fisherman around the world.

Ralph Kylloe on the other hand loved fishing and photography so he created the book, “Fishing Camps”, which was published by Gibbs Smith publisher. This allowed Ralph to travel across the country enjoying fishing camps as he photographed and wrote.

Steve Ambrose, another friend of ours, had family commitments at home so he set up a bass fishing business in Florida that served Americans, Germans, Canadian, Dutch and Belgians.  Later as his children grew, he used his client base to arrange fishing trips in Argentina.

Each of these people had provincial backgrounds and differed in age, situation and skills.  Their common link, the love of fishing, led each to a global micro business.  Each was able to blend a unique nature and set of skills to develop a global business that surrounded them with fun, like minded fishing souls.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international micro business that can be managed almost anywhere.  This program is unique because Merri and I are unique.  We started our global business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves… thus we create micro businesses that do not require large staffs.

We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home on our remote farms and employ only a few people to help.

You can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  You’ll learn how to create your own ads and when to use the internet… search engines… pay per click… classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth… even flea markets and roadside stands in some cases.

See how to build a PR list and social business network on the World Wide Web to gain thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I even share my most secret results on my marketing so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a product at $49 instead of $29.

Learn how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and received free trips all over the world.

Learn how we have made money over the Internet (specific details, specific experiences, hard earned knowledge over the last 13 years!)  With an inexpensive computer you can easily run a business from home and still have tons of time left over – even if you are computer challenged.  Merri and I have certainly proven this.  We were one of the first to run a successful website and still rank high today even with millions of competitors.  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach.

Merri and I with our webmaster, David Cross, were leaders in beginning internet micros businesses and have sold millions over the web.  You gain ways to earn global income over the net from that experience as well.

At www.garyascott.com our emailed messages are regularly sent to over 20,000 readers.

You learn the income producing power of defined focus and immediate repetition to get good search engine rankings and sales.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of business ideas and case studies based on our 48 years of experience.

The course  describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a multi-million dollar international micro business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

Terry T., an attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.

Learn How to Gain Total Security.  Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option.  See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change never a victim of change.

Learn How to Perfect a Lifestyle.  Living as you choose is important because life is short.  Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

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. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

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.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

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

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email 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 .

Does that sound fair enough?
