How To Be Comfortable


Here’s how to be comfortable in an uncomfortable world. 

The increasing pace of change can make the world increasingly uncomfortable so we need to be comfortable being uncomfortable.

Look at how fast things change.

When the economic recession hit in 2009, the top five constituents that represented 14% of the S&P 500 Index were Exxon, Procter & Gamble , Johnson & Johnson, AT&T and Chevron.

Those companies have been swept away. Their total value now in the S&P is just 6%.  Instead, the market is dominated by Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon and Facebook

This is good.

The Wall Street Journal article “Is Time Running Out for the Swiss Watch Industry?” (1) provides another example of how to face the challenge of change.

With sales flagging, Switzerland’s watchmakers need to raise the interest of a generation that has no need for traditional timepieces.

It’s the first time we have young people not buying watches.  Time is everywhere.  Why should these kids buy something for the wrists that tells them the same thing they get everywhere?”

Executives across Switzerland’s watch industry have been wrestling with the same question. How can they convince young consumers that mechanical timepieces are relevant—let alone worth the price of a car?

The article tells how the Swiss have rebranded watches again and again and says: When you feel comfortable, you are entering the danger zone.

Look at some of the challenges the Swiss watch industry has faced.

The first existential threat came in the 1970s was the introduction of the quartz watch.   This electronic timekeeping technology is far more accurate and cheaper to produce than mechanical watches.   Japanese watchmakers such as Seiko flooded the global market with inexpensive quartz timepieces, destroying the lower and middle tiers of the Swiss industry.

The Swiss refocused on designing highly complicated mechanical watches.  They raised prices and sold the prestige and fashion.

As US and European demand faded in the late 1990s, Chinese consumers began to buy Swiss watches and China’s rapidly growing wealthy  picked up the slack.  In 2008, deep recessions in the West and Japan, ruined in the industry’s traditional US and European markets, but Chinese buyers kept the market buoyant.

Then in 2016 China’s leader, Xi Jinping, launched a sweeping crackdown on graft.  The luxury watch—a favored gift to grease the wheels of business—emerged as a target of public outrage. Increased customs inspections and fees killed the demand for Swiss watches along with other luxury goods.

One Swiss watch brand, Zenith, that relied on Chinese clients for 60% of its sales, saw business fall off a cliff.

An executive of that brand said:  “To be so successful with the Chinese made our people feel comfortable.  When you feel comfortable, you are entering the danger zone.”

This is the moral of this message… “being comfortable is dangerous”.

The Swiss are adapting.

Some Swiss watch brands have hired models, performers such as Jay-Z and various street artists in their early 20s as “brand ambassadors.  They are advertising in the virtual world of videogames and developed the Swiss industry’s first smartwatch.

TAG Heuer developed its own smartwatch using Android as the operating system and Intel for the electronics.

The Swatch Group AG designed a smartwatch that uses the Swiss industry’s legendary self-reliance.  They do not depend on global supply chains controlled by big tech companies and are not reproducing something that a mobile phone can do.

Swatch has its own operating system and electronics that can go a month or more without charging and won’t become quickly obsolete.

The real basis of comfort, happiness, contentment, satisfaction, well-being and abundance is to be comfortable being uncomfortable.

This however does not mean that we should be at unease or have dis-ease.

We should gain comfort by embracing change.

See problems as opportunity.

Always look for new ways to be of value and serve.

Be uncomfortable that the sun might not always shine where you are now.

Take comfort in the fact that the sun always shines somewhere and find joy in the never ending journey to find that place… where the sun shines.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

A huge economic struggle is taking place.

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

Almost half of America’s voters rejected the postwar global economic order.  England’s voters did this too.  This has left a cloud of uncertainty over the U.S. and world economies.

Markets and social order can collapse at any time.

Schools are not safe from shooters on the rampage.

Streets are in danger of terrorists ramming their cars into riders on bikes.

We are no longer safe… in shopping centers, at festivals, even in the church.

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

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

There is an association forming that can ruin our health care, nutrition and the environment.  A group that can control what you read on the internet, see over cell phones, watch on TV and what trends in social media.

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

The warning shot, above the surface, is the merger between Bayer and Monsanto.  This union is horrible enough, yet it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Seven companies are involved in a more sinister plot.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

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

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

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

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

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

ecuador-banks

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

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

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

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

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

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

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

How to Find Your Next Opportunity


The Sun Always Shines Somewhere

Most investors traditionally run from bad times!

This fact creates value investing opportunity.

Our motto for decades has been the sun always shines somewhere.  That has helped us spot special opportunities (that worked for us), again and again.  First in Hong Kong, then Switzerland, London, Naples, Florida, Isle of Man,  Dominican Republic, North Carolina, Ecuador and Mt. Dora Florida.

This is a repeatable process.

Here are several tips that can help find your special opportunities that expand the chances of a rich amd fulfilling lifestyle.

#1: Expect the next boom.  Chicken Little has been around for  along time yet the sky has not fallen yet. For centuries… man’s material life has improved through a series of busts and booms.  We could consider busts as opportunities to gain in the next boom.

#2: Never say never.  Right now you may think “I’ll never come back”… or “I’ll never leave the new places where I am moving”.  Perhaps not… but then again something may come up that’s even better.  Do not close your mind to an even better lifestyle.

#3: Don’t burn bridges.  Keep your affairs in order.

#4: Expand your horizons.  If you move to a new place you’ll have new sights, smells, tastes, feelings and sounds.  This information will reform you and as a different, more experienced person you’ll have new opportunities to serve the world in new ways.  Expect to be able to have more because you can do more, because you will be more.

#5: Embrace change.  As a deeper, more experienced person you will see economic and social evolution in different ways  and you’ll have more ways to be engaged in the change a fulfilling way… so expect this benefit.

#6: Go try things.

#7: Follow the Lead. This is perhaps most important of all.  The Western world mindset teaches us to project how we expect the future to be and if it is not… we are disappointed.  Everything really is in perfect order and we all have an important role to fill (and to be fulfilled).  If we follow the steps above and are open to new ideas… new possibilities and watch for opportunity that presents itself, this process we call life gives us extra depth, excitement, beauty, wonder and abundance.   All we have to do is be open, observant and obedient to our inner voice.

One wise man we lived and worked with in the Andes for several years used to take us for walks in the mountains along narrow paths.  As the trails narrowed… the cliffs became steep.

Then he would say… “Look ahead… close your eyes and walk. Trust the path. You know where to go. Your eyes blind your vision.

So we would wind our way… along the cliffs… not seeing… but feeling where we were headed instead and knowing that the path was correct.

Let me see if I can express in words this process that cannot really be expressed… because without want or need… following paths we could not see but knew were there, led us to happiness, fulfillment but also incredible  financial success.

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.

Lesson #2:  How to Create Your Product.  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.

Lesson #3:  How to Choose Your Format.  Some ideas are timeless and can be sold in a book for years on end.  Others are better in a magazine, newsletter or other periodic publication. Some products can just be lists, simple one page photocopied ideas or names and addresses. Understand when to print, record (on audio or video) and when to transfer through the Internet. 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. Know where and when to advertise (such as never near Easter-Christmas is OK).

You’ll learn how to turn a few advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to write or have ads written.  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.  Learn the tricks of the Internet to easily focus and capture a market there.

Lesson #5:  If You Print-How to Print?  Did you know that you can reduce your printing bill by half just asking for a job in the right way?  Learn all the 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.  Learn how to choose the right graphics, correct paper, envelope, style, letter fonts.  When on demand printing is best.  Every Secret is included.

Lesson #6:  How to Fulfill.  This session is a practical guide on how to administer your business.  How to set up a computerized fulfilment system, get local families to do all your work for you and run your business (if you wish) from your home.  Learn how and why to use low and variable overheads, yet give one day turn-around delivery.  Learn when to choose delivery services, to fulfill yourself or build your own system…or when to simply fulfill via the Internet.

Lesson #7:  How to Finance.  Learn all you’ll need about the financial end, of the business, how to control physical or online inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results, get 30 day free credit and stay on top of your business.  Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.  The course and manual contain all these secrets and more.  The computer/internet workshop personalizes the knowledge so you can get started.

Andean Thoughts on Depression and Pinnacle Careers


Pinnacle careers can help us neutralize depressing events.

Many readers tell me they are depressed with the state of their nation.  This is not just an American comment.   I received messages from readers in Canada, Ecuador and all over Europe… plus a few from Asia… especially Japan and Singapore.

A common source of this depression is their view of the change that has taken place in the democratic process.

Here is how to make such a view better.

Merri and I lived and worked with a number of Andean shamans and one specialized in treating children who had depression.  His prescription was “eat well – sleep well and work hard with joy in the heart”.   He had them live in this routine and soon they were back to youthful brightness.  Perhaps the most important lesson we learned from the years with this yatchak was learning how to make work joyful.

Andean-shaman

Shamans walking with views at our Andean hacienda.

One reader who moved to Ecuador for example wrote:  Many of us who served in the Viet Nam war are now in our sixties and can no longer afford to live in the country we served.  I was fortunate to have served in Vietnam, Beirut and Iraq.  I love what my country was, but have my doubts about America’s future.

This depressing view has been developing for a long time. This is a natural evolution.  My first book “Passport to International Profit” published in the 1970s, explained why this change would come when it defined  the “Concept Conversion Trick” and said:   “The Concept Conversion Trick begins when people agree on a good concept for working and living together. The people go to work and if the concept is good they will create a paradise. The government gives them a flag and a song. Then the government pulls the trick. The government convinces the people that the flag and song are important. Then while the people are busy watching the flag and singing the song, the government replaces the concept with a set of ever increasing written rules and regulations administered by bureaucrats and backed up by a police force.

If this writing sounds prophetic having been written 30 + years ago, it was not. A simple review of any previous great society shows this trick and the evolution brought by it.  Like the Roman Empire, things may get better for a while, then worse and then better again. In the long term, as societies age, they lose their original vibrancy and life.

This is the universal nature… to grow until the growth becomes so excessive that balance is lost.

This truth shows us the nature of mankind and every underlying force that goes from birth to continuity and then transformation. This is the way of life.  However when we recognize and accept this fact, we can adapt and do a lot to slow the rot and return our community into a more positive space.”

Read more from my 1970s book “Passport to International Profit” “Don’t be a sitting duck when the shooting starts“.

The Longer We Are On the Pond the Smarter We Can Be

Having decades of experience offers many benefits… inner growth, more focus on health and the ability to coax our community into a better place.

These separate subjects, actually tie together rather well in a pinnacle career.  Health, wealth, meaning and service are so inexorably linked that if you apply the process of having one it becomes easy to have the others.

This thinking came clear to me years ago when one small sentence in a book review about “The Wealthy 100” which showed the fallacy of working just for cash.

wealthy 100

The Wealthy 100 at Amazon.com

This book showed who the wealthiest people in the world were by looking at their wealth at the time of their death in relation to the GDP of the U.S.

John Jacob Astor was the wealthiest man in these terms as his wealth equaled 1/65th of the U.S. GDP.

The paragraph in that article that shook me to my roots was: “The stories of the Astors, Vanderbilts and Morgans have been fascinating. They were not always the smartest, or best educated, but possessed a single minded discipline. If there was a common denominator it was a passion they brought to business whether inspired by greed or desire to be the best.

The backlash; many lived unhappily.”

My immediate thought was, “How would I feel if in the last 30 seconds of my life I realized that I was the richest man in the world, ever and yet I had lived an unhappy life?

This is why pinnacle careers offer more power than any we have had in the past.  If we have a career doing what we love, we do better and joyfully, put in more energy, time and care.

This is nature’s irony; if we chase money, it seems to run away.  If we pursue our passion and work without concern for the cash, the wealth can’t resist us.

Now is a great time to know more about health and its relation to wealth because as the economic slowdown carries on, people feel worse. They look for new values and ways to feel better despite the negatives in the outside world.

We live in a holographic, fractal universe.

This quantum reality can be summed in the phrase, “As above, so below”.  Most humans on this earth are feeling the external turmoil within. We are all one and we are all connected. All the negativity that abounds in uncertain economic times impacts us all at some level.

There is no better way to overcome this, to make a positive statement in the way we serve others. Charity is not the main answer either. For success, we must be rewarded for our efforts.

“The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression” is a book on human behavior by Andrew Solomon. This book tells of a unique study that shows how people put meaning back in their lives after the most horrible of circumstances.

Noonday Demon

The Noonday Demon at Amazon.com

The book reviews a study of Cambodian women who had survived the trauma of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge purge where 20 % of the population was destroyed.

The three-step plan used gives us a great insight into how we can have true wealth. First, the women were taught to forget, the psychotherapist Phaly Nuon, a woman who had lost her family as well says they used exercises each day to forget so that each day they could forget a little more of the things they would never entirely forget. They distracted with music or embroidery or weaving or whatever seemed to work. “The loss is under the skin”, she said “and we cannot take it out.” But they could forget that it was there, even though it was.

Second, Phaly Nuon taught them to work. They had to learn to work well, have pride in the work and to be paid. The receiving of energy as well as the giving of it was necessary to make this work. Finally, once they had mastered a trade or profession she taught them to love. She used a steam bath to do this, where the women could meet and give one another manicures and pedicures. Doing this made the women feel beautiful and put them in contact with the bodies of other people and to give up their bodies to the care of others. Grooming is one of the primary forms of socialization among primates and this return to grooming brings the women back to balance.

Finally, she taught the women one more vital lesson, that these three steps, forgetting, working and loving are not three separate skills, but part of one enormous whole. The practice of these three things together each as part of the other is what makes the difference.

I quote this book and Phaly Nuon: “It (this wholeness) is the hardest thing to convey” she laughed-“but they all come to understand this, and when they do-why, then they are ready to go into the world again.”

Wholeness in giving and receiving is the answer.  If we give too much without allowing others to return we manifest the parasitic element that lies within us all.

Solomon also wrote in his book “The people who succeed despite depression do three things. First, they seek an understanding of what’s happening. They then accept that this is a permanent situation. And then they have to transcend their experience and grow from it and put themselves out into the world of real people.”

This is good advice for viewing the changes that have taken place in our world.  Understand what has happened…  accept the change… and rise above it to make the existing reality more positive for all.

There is no more powerful process than serving through business.

Give.  Give in ways that support this earth and help the world.  Serve in a way that brings joy to your heart.   Your rewards will be better health and wealth.  There is no other model for success that makes more sense.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

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

gary scott

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

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

All I need is my laptop.

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

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

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

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

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

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

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

Writers like High are great inspirations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

First some history.

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

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

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

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

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

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

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

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

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

The First P is Passion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a special offer. 

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

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

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

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

Prosper From Change


How to Prosper from Change

We have added a new service and have many, many new readers so let me outline why we share ideas about health and wealth plus an introduction on a free new service.  See below up to the minute ways to prosper.

Introduction

A reader sent this note: Good morning Gary,  I always enjoy reading your emails.  You are as eclectic as any thinker I hear from.

This beautiful note took me by surprise because eclectic is defined as “Deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources”.

This site instead is dedicated to deriving information from…

wagon-wheel

just one source… the hub.

The spoke of living… for purpose, health and wealth… viewed in our messages may vary… but only as threads that are strung to the same spot.

Though the subjects in our websites seem to range from natural health… to global, funky micro businesses… to multi currency investing…to super thinking through frequency modulation… to self publishing and Ecuador… to shamanic balance… they are all about one thing… how life is frequency… how frequency is change… how to embrace and how to prosper  from change.

The wheels of change are turning faster now and…

fan jet

the pace is picking up. The dots are moving faster but they are the same dots moved by the same force that has always moved the world.

This site is about connecting those dots to help you prosper from change by sharing our experiences of over 40 years of global investing, business and living.

Being global is not the panacea however.  The expanded horizons are what help us see further into the future and grow.  Life is a trip and we have an entire globe to enjoy the ride.  Expanding our horizons beyond our local borders can help our visions penetrate the mists of tomorrow so we can adjust to gain opportunity and avoid any danger ahead.

For example, global studies of economic markets led me to write on my May 2, 2007 anniversary: “History suggests that this is a time when chances are increased for panic and sudden drops in investment markets. Investors who have proven themselves nervous short term thinkers are highly leveraged, in thin, over purchased markets that are easily sinkable boats treading the dangerous waters of May though October when tradition says the currents will most likely be treacherous and surrounded with lots of storms.”

Then our global view helped us see ahead and write at this site on October 26, 2008,  the week before the Dow dropped below 10,000, “I sent my Multi Currency subscribers a Triple Crunch warning… three signals of caution in equity markets that could cause a market crunch.”

Then in April and May 2010 the week before the Dow dipped again below 10,000 in the worst one day crash ever: I shared three warnings about the US stock market at Jyske Global Asset Management’s (JGAM) Laguna Beach forex seminar, a weekend ago and began slipping these warnings out in messages even before then.  Our April 21 message warned about the risks in May 2010 that start with Seasonality.

Then May 3, 2010 our message had an Economic Cycle Review that showed why equities could be dangerous then.

This was just before the storm.

Dow-chart

This chart from www.finance.yahoo.com shows how our warnings were just before the worst one day drop in the Dow’s history.

Before I could get the third warning to readers, the bottom fell out of the Dow as this Dow Industrial chart from finance.yahoo.com shows.

This third warning could have been helpful to readers but a daily message was not fast enough.

Now we need to help expand the horizons faster. Since 2007 volatility and our need to reach readers quickly have grown and I am taking the British Prime Minister’s recent fight with Europe over the euro crisis and sovereign rights as a signal.

A 100 year review of the Dow Jones Index shows that the global economy has moved in 17 to 20 year bull and bear cycles with each bear leading to a major struggle between England and Europe.  Post war booms fueled each bull.   A study of those cycles suggest its time for another Anglo Euro conflict.

The current bear began around 2000 so expect another two to four years of economic turmoil before a recovery.

The current bear creates enormous long term share value but with great short term market and currency volatility.   This calls for multi currency diversification.

An easy way to diversify is with major companies that have the size and strength to gain momentum in these bad times.   They’ll accelerate their profits when the economic turn good.

Look for value in the world’s larger companies like Wal-Mart… Royal Dutch Shell… Toyota… State Grid… AXA…China National Petroleum… Siemans… IBM… American Express… Coca Cola.  Each earns globally so also adds multi currency diversification…although some of them are not on my plate because of what they stand for…not what they will earn.

Mutual funds that diversify in many companies globally is an alternative. An example is First Eagle Overseas Fund (Symbol-SGOVX).  At the end of 2011, the fund had assets over $10 billion invested in nearly 200 different holdings.

This fund has been down for several years and offers a bumpy ride. Yet it has finished in its sector’s top five percent numerous times. It has been rising 3.94 percent over the past five years and 13.08 percent over the past decade.

England may or may not decide to get along better with Europe but the crisis and global volatility will not end soon.  Realize this turmoil is natural and diversify for safety.  More on this in an upcoming message.

To make sure we can reach you quickly with changes created by the turmoil we have expanded beyond a daily email service… a new service in the circle… Tweets.

Twitter gives me the ability to get messages to your faster so I invite you to follow my tweets (if you would like on the moment messages) http://twitter.com/garyascott

We hope that sharing our current experiences against the backdrop of our past will help you prosper from change.
