Here is Blaine Watson teaching his February 2009 Beyond Logic course.  He will teach this course again in Cotacachi in December.

We have been conducting Ecuador real estate tours for a decade longer than any others.   Our success has grown because we do not accept commissions on Ecuador estate shown on these tours.   Our goal is to help you know how to find the best deals on  Ecuador real estate.

The pictures below show how we help delegates get an overall view of the Ecuador real estate market.

Ecuador Beach Tours


Ecuador beach condos offer great value.  Only $89,000 (with 80% financing) for brand new units and resales.

Here is an update on Vistazul Ecuador condos on the coast.

These condos offer great value and come with a club membership at Palmazul Boutque Hotel & Spa.

ecuador-sea-real-estate

This is the Palmazul Boutique Hotel and Spa which is also the Vistazul club house right at the condo project.  You can enjoy massages, swimming pool, tennis.

The owner Kjetil Haugan is currently adding upgrades at the club house with a loan received from an Ecuador business agency, upgrading rooms, building a new spa in front of the ocean, adding a new bar, along with bikes and  kayaks.

There is a children’s play ground and…

ecuador-sea-real-estate

Here are children of two of the first families with children who have condos at Vistazul.

ecuador-sea-real-estate

You can enjoy fine dining overlooking the beach.

ecuador-sea-real-estate

There are also several Vistazul condo resales offered at $84,000.  The benefit of these resales is that the units are finished. You can move in or begin renting them at any time.

Kjetil has also started to promote the hotel heavily in Ecuador, Peru and Colombia and is getting an average of 10 requests per day.  This should be very good for the apartment rentals once Vistazul is ready.

Here is an update on the Vistazul project.    Units 101 t0 1o5 are now finished and sold.

103 is available as a resale at $84,000 including club membership.ecuador-sea-real-estate-401

Here is the front of units 101 to 105.

ecuador-sea-real-estate

Here is unit 102 also there is a resale at the same price…. finished and ready to move in at the same price… $89,000.

For those with patience five units that are not ready… are still for sale…  for Ecuador Living subscribers.  The price is just $89,000 including the club membership.

Here are the unfinished units in Building two…

ecuador-beach-condos

and six.

ecuador-beach-condos

Here is the site plan.

galapagos-discount-tours

Every unit has a sea view from the bedroom or roof and of course has great sunsets.

ecuador-sea-real-estate

Let me walk you around the project with these pictures so you can tie the units and progress to the sketch above.

Here is a shot from the Palmazul hotel which is also the condo development’s clubhouse which sits right on the beach.

galapagos-discounts

The first building you see on the left is Block #1.  This block is 133 steps to the beach…just a bit over the distance of a football field.  I counted the steps myself!

Block #3, is  done.  There is one resale here at $89,000.

galapagos-discount-tour

Phase one of the project has 38 units in total.  Phase II is scheduled for 32 units.

Keep in mind ownership of these condos also include a free four day Galapagos cruise worth $2,230.

If the current owner has not used this cruise that benefit also passes along with the sale.  The tour is also offered in the resale units.

Patience is a great virtue in business and investing.

Though Vistazul owners have the right to use the pool and tennis courts at the clubhouse, Vistazul is also adding a swimming pool and tennis court at to make it easier for those in the upper to rent their condos.

Phase II units have better views but also higher prices at $115,000

Ecuador Export & Southern Coastal Tour


We have added an October Ecuador southern coastal and a northern Andes real estate tour to our 2009 schedule.

This southern coastal tour will be conducted just before our final Ecuador export tour of the year conducted October 21 to 25.  The Andes real estate tour will be conducted just after the export tour so you can attend all three.

ecuador-exports

We’ll see fine gold encrusted art on the export tour.

Maggie Beesley conducts our export tours and she just sent me this note.

ecuador-exports

Leather products of all types.

Value, Value, Value.  Today’s economy has us all looking for value in everything.  In reading Gary Scott’s emails for the last two weeks, we are all learning about ways to help our dollars to go farther, as well as how and where to get wise values.

ecuador-exports

Wood carving.

October 21st thru October 24th we will be conducting another Import/Export class in Cotacachi, Ecuador.

If you are a reader of International Living, or Gary’s Ecuador Living, you know Ecuador is rated the number one country in the Retirement Index.

What does this mean?

Value is here, prices are incredible, cost of living anyone can afford and wonderful shopping.

Who should come to the class, why you should come, and what you will learn?

ecuador-exports

Botanical art.

In other words…what is this class all about?

•    Creating income
•    Finding those “one of a kind” treasures
•    Having fun doing the above two things

Of course, those are only three things.  You are going to learn to recognize true “finds”….know what your market will buy, and get all these wonderful treasures in your suitcase home safe and sound.

ecuador-exports

Ceramics.

We all know shopping is much different today than it was this time last year.  Last year we were still charging whatever we wanted.  This year we are paying cash for whatever we want.  People never spend as much if paying with cash.  So our mission in class is to find things for your market that are affordable, attractive, AND your people will happily hand over those hard earned dollars still allowing you a nice profit.

As I said this time last year, the main question I was asked “Do you take credit cards?”

I did a Bazaar yesterday and not one person charged anything.  The phrase of the day was “if I can’t pay cash for it, I won’t buy it.”  So right away I know some of the high end items that were selling left and right this time last year aren’t going to be my main sales today.

What have I learned?

Always be prepared to offer less expensive alternatives…not less quality, just more affordable for this cash market we are in.  The Credit Card Machine that was a must last year is an unneeded start up expense to you right now.

Don’t waste your money.  Plus the beauty of cash is that there are no additional charges from your bank to process those charges.  All a little more profit for you.  Yesterday at the Bazaar there were 16 vendors and I was the only one who had a credit card machine, and it sat, meaning at the end of the month, that “sitting” charge will cost me $48.00.

ecuador-exports

Jewelry

ecuador-exports

of many types.

ecuador-exports

Now for this class there is a little homework, but fun homework.

FIRST ASSIGNMENT…..I want each of you to think about what you would buy today?

I am not talking about groceries.

Ladies, is it that “to die for” pair of boots on sale, perhaps a leather purse, maybe a wrap for early fall, or decorations for the December holidays?

Guys, what would you buy today? Boots, new billfold/wallet, leather sports jacket, sweater? Just think about what you would spend your hard earned dollars on.

ecuador-exports

Top quality hand made suits at really low prices. This suit in french wool cost $135.

Your needs and wants are probably what will sell in your market, and that is what we need to look for.

Knowing your market is probably the most important knowledge you will take with you when making those purchases for resale.  Many of you already know about my red cape.  I love my red cape, however up in the Northeast my buyers are a little more conservative and red is not necessarily their first color of choice.

Gary Scott told me all about knowing my market, but I just love red.  I purchased 6 red alpaca capes plus 1 beige,  1 sage, 1 tan, 1 navy, and 2 black.

Yes you guessed it.

The red capes sat for a bit, but the neutral colors sold instantly and I could have sold more.  So I lost sales, and warehoused those 6 red capes until Christmas.  Moral to this story, please know your market.

ecuador-exports

Flowers.

Your SECOND ASSIGNMENT… Please walk around your shopping areas and notice what colors people are wearing. Go into the stores and see what is on display.  Look at every catalogue you get.  What are those colors everyone is looking at?  Purple is huge again in the catalogues and stores, but do you see your market going with the fashion trends?

Look at accessories.

Scarves, jewelry, purses, shawls and make note of the prices.  Accessories have a very high markup, and this is where we can really make our money.

You all have your assignments, so get to work.  In class I want to see pictures you have cut out of catalogues, and let’s see if we can’t find those same items in Ecuador for much better prices.  It is fun!

ecuador-exports

Textiles of…

ecuador-exports

many

ecuador-exports

types.

Look forward to seeing many of you in Ecuador.  By the way, if you haven’t made your flight reservations, there is what I call an “airplane sale” going right now for flights into South America. Grab those lower prices…and you just saved some money.  Maggie Beesley

ecuador-exports

Crafts of all sorts and much… much more.

You can enroll in the Ecuador Export Tour here.

Before Maggie’s Export tour you can join Amy Pinoargote and Mike Sager  for the Ecuador southern coastal tour.

We have been our expanding our focus in Ecuador and now are helping readers look in the southern coastal areas.

Ecuador beach property has always represented incredible value and this expansion means we can help readers see a much larger part of the Ecuador coast.

We are also adding an October northern Andes real estate tour as you will see below.

ecuador-beach-map

Those who have been reading our messages for any length of time know that we have focused our efforts on the middle portion of Ecuador’s beach from Manta to Bahia in the province of Manabi.

However there are many other great Ecuador beach areas that some of you want to visit.

I recently sent readers an article “SEE SALINAS LIKE A LOCAL” by Amy Pinoargote  that said:

Ecuador-beach-salinas

The Salinas Malecon area has long been a favorite destination.

Salinas is one of the favorite in Ecuador for good reasons.  It has beautiful beaches, with calm waters perfect for swimming, water sports, activities or just relaxing.   Along the Malecon, or beachfront promenade, you will find a variety of restaurants, hotels, bars and other attractions.  During the summer season there is even a giant sandcastle.  If you “tip” the sculptor $1, he will take your photo.  However, to really enjoy all that Salinas has to offer, you need to get to know it like a local.

Ecuador-beach-salinas

Pose for a photo by the giant sandcastle

Salinas at a Glance

There are two seasons in Ecuador.  Summer runs from December to April and winter from May to November.  The summer in Salinas is usually sunny, with occasional showers.  Daytime temperatures reach the low to mid 80s and nighttime temperatures run in the low 70s.  The winter tends to be overcast to partially sunny, but not rainy.  The winter is actually the drier time of the year and temperatures run about 10 degrees cooler than during the summer.   Because Salinas is semi-arid, it doesn’t experience sticky, tropical humidity.  This makes a comfortable environment for outdoor activities all year long.

As with most beach towns, the dress code in Salinas is casual.  It is perfectly fine to go from beach to restaurant.  Along with your swimsuit, pack plenty of shorts and short sleeved shirts, plus pants and long sleeves if you are visiting in the winter months.   Have a sweater handy, as some days are cooler than others.

Where to Eat

The Salinas area is a prime spot to enjoy fresh fish and seafood, as well as other Ecuadorian specialties.

A great spot to sample those specialties is Delícias de Ecuador, located near the entrance to the Costa de Oro neighborhood on the main road that runs from Salinas to La Libertad.

Prices here are very reasonable.  The daily lunch special or “Almuerzo” includes a soup, entrée and beverage, usually priced at $2.50.

Don’t ask for changes or substitutions on the lunch special; it comes the way it is.  Other options include Seco de Pollo, which is chicken stewed in a tomato-based sauce, and Menestra, lentils or beans served with your choice of grilled chicken, beef or fish.

If a relaxing lunch at the beach, complete with a hammock for a post-meal siesta is your style, drive about 30 minutes north of Salinas to San Pablo.  In this fishing village you will find cabana style restaurants right on the sand, specializing in fresh fish and seafood.

Las Manabas restaurant is one of the best.  If you can’t decide what to order from the extensive menu, try the Chupe de Pescado (fish stew) or Corvina (a mild tasting sea bass), cooked to order.  Most meals run between $3 and $5.

Ecuadorians typically eat a big meal at lunch and a light dinner.

Roca Parilla is the spot to enjoy an Ecuadorian style dinner.  Located a block off the Malecon, it opens at about 6 p.m.  Place your order at the counter, then take your receipt to the grill.  Specialties, which are typically priced from 50 cents to $1 each, include:

Chuzos -shrimp, chicken, beef or sausage grilled on a skewer
Torta de Papa – potato pancake filled with cheese
Torta de Choclo – corn pancake (this one is usually a favorite!)
Muchín – a yucca croquet filled with cheese

No trip to Salinas is complete without a visit to the Cevicherías, casual outdoor eating areas a few blocks off the Malecon that specialize in ceviche.  Shrimp ceviche in a tangy salsa is a good choice.  Shellfish and fish ceviche are also available.  Be aware that the shellfish or fish will not be cooked in the traditional manner.  The citrus juice in the salsa is said to “cook” the fish.  If you have concerns about eating uncooked fish, go with the shrimp version, which is cooked.

Things to See

If you want to browse for souvenirs, visit Mercado de Artesanias, an outdoor flea market in the Chipipe area of Salinas, where you can buy a variety of Ecuadorian handicrafts.

To get a glimpse of days gone by, visit the Museo de Sumpa.  This small, but well thought out museum features exhibits of artifacts from the early residents of the Santa Elena peninsula, including the Las Vegas culture.  It also features a Las Vegas burial site of the “lovers of Sumpa,” mummified remains of two people that appear to have died in an embrace.  You can also tour a cane dwelling typical of those built by the early settlers.

Enjoy a relaxing evening drive a few miles across the Santa Elena peninsula to the Punta Carnero beach, where you can see some of the most beautiful sunsets in Ecuador.  On your way back to Salinas, pass by the Malecon of La Libertad and stop for an evening stroll.

Ecuador-beach-salinas

Whether dining, sunsets or beach activities are your idea of a fun time, you will find it in Salinas.

Ecuador-beach-salinas

Gerardo & Amy Pinoargote spend their time between their home in Florida and Salinas and together with relatives are building and managing Spondylus II, a small beachfront development in the Costa de Oro area of Salinas, about 2 miles from the Malecon.

This is an area they like due to its privacy, great beach for walking, sunbathing and water sports. Yet it is just a short ride to dining and shopping in the central area.

Spondylus II  is a family business consisting of three towers. Tower A1 is sold out, except for a ground floor ocean front 1000 square foot unit. Several one and two bedroom suites are still available in tower A2, priced from $49,500 to $50,500.

Larger 1300 square foot units are also still available, priced under $110,000. Tower B has just been release for sale and features larger units (1400 – 1500 square feet), in the $120,000 – $135,000 price range.

Spondylus II offers the following amenities… beachfront pool & social area, a workout center, 24 hour security and the Pacific Ocean as a front yard.  All units feature granite kitchen counter tops, tile floors, tile baths, inset ceiling light fixtures and wooden kitchen cabinets.

Now it is possible to see Salinas like a local with Amy and her husband acting as your hosts and guides.

Amy and Gerardo Pinoargote, along with American real estate broker, Mike Sager, will conduct a Ecuador southern coastal real estate tour October 15th through 18th.

On this tour you can get to know Salinas property and the real estate along the beaches north of Salinas.

This is an opportunity to view more than a dozen properties and get tips from experts who are living in this area right now.  You save time, risk and zero in with help from those “in the know”.

The tour makes your real estate investigation efficient and productive but also allows time for relaxing in the evenings and enjoying the beaches.  Plus as you’ll see in a moment could save you thousands should you ever decide to buy in this area.

Here are a few of the properties you’ll see:

•    New 2 bedroom condo located directly on a tranquil beach in popular Salinas… $55,000.

•    3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with ocean views in the most popular complex in Olon…. $100,000.

•    Large house on a ¼ acre lot near Montanita, complete with basketball court, ample parking and caretaker’s cottage that could be a bed & breakfast… $250,000.

The southern coastal tour package includes three nights accommodations:

Thursday, October 15 –  The tour fee includes a room at the Castel or similar hotel in Guayaquil.
Friday, October 16 – breakfast, transportation from Guayaquil to Salinas, lunch, Salinas area property viewings, happy hour and night’s stay at Coco’s or similar hotel in Salinas.

Saturday, October 17 – breakfast, Ruta de Sol property viewings (Ballenita to Montanita), lunch, night’s stay at Charo’s or similar hotel in Montanita.

Sunday, October 18 – breakfast, Olon area property viewings, lunch, tour of Salinas , return transportation to Guayaquil, night’s stay at the Castel or similar hotel in Guayaquil.

The tour will be limited in size but you can assure a space and save $100 if you reserve by September 1.

If you enroll today, the fee is $499 for one $998 for two.

Tomorrow the tour fee rises to $599 for one and $1,198 for two.

See how to save even more on multiple tours below.

The tour package does not include your flight.  You should plan to fly into Guayaquil on October 15th and depart from there on the 19th.  If you are attending the export and/or Andean tour we’ll help you join other delegates in Quito.

Save 2% on real estate purchase.

We are promoting this tour in cooperation with Gerardo, Amy and Mike and when we promote outside tours, we always ask for the tour operator to give something special to our Ecuador Living subscribers.

In this case,  Amy & Gerardo will provide Ecuador Living subscribers a 2% discount on any  Spondylus II condo purchase. This is possible because we do not accept real estate commissions and ask that the benefit of exposure to our large readership (this message will reach 16,572 readers) be pass onto our Ecuador Living subscribers.

Your tour does not have to end on the southern beach. As mentioned, you can then continue to Quito and Cotacachi for our October 21 to 24 Ecuador export tour.

Still more… Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Finally you can also join our October Imbabura real estate tour October 25-26, where we have also convinced developers and real estate sellers to pass savings along to our tour delegates in the form of  discounts.  For example the Prima Vera condos also offer a 2% discount to buyers from our tours.

Join us for one, two or all three tours.  Reduced tour fees apply for attending two or three tours.

Ecuador Preconstruction Property


Here is an Ecuador beach preconstruction property.

ecuador-beach-property

We do not normally write about or allow advertising of Ecuador preconstruction property but Dr. Andres Cordova, our friend and attorney, has helped so many of our readers over the past decade that we skipped this rule and posted a message about his special Ecuador preconstruction property.

Andres is the grandson of one of Ecuador’s more famous presidents. He is a senior partner in a law firm that represents Ecuador’s treasury.

Yet to me he is an example of how Ecuadorians are willing to help others in so many ways.

For example, we warn our delegates and readers to stay away from the Mariscal Sucre area in Quito. This is a very touristy area that many of the tour agents promote. This area is loaded with very clever pickpocket type thieves.

Regretfully some delegates do not mind our warnings, as was the case when a delegate from our course, on his way back to the US, visited this area. His carry on bag was stolen (in a tricky but non aggressive way). He lost everything, passport, wallet, car keys, credit card, driver’s license, computer. He was stranded with $3 left in his pocket.

Fortunately he called us in Cotacachi. I called Andres who immediately left his Sunday afternoon lunch and within the hour had picked up our delegate, given him $200 cash and sent him back to us in Cotacachi. (The US Embassy would not help the delegate until Monday.)

This is not the first time Andres has gone out of his way to pull a delegate’s irons out of a fire. A few years ago, a delegate arrived for our Import-Export Expedition. The delegate had journeyed to Peru first and purchased many huge bags of goods to take back to the US . Naturally Ecuadorian customs wanted to tax them. Though it was nearly midnight, one call to Andres got him working and he immediately sorted the problem out.

Now Andres has done it again. A reader just sent me this note.

Wanted you to know that Andres handled the closing on my place and would not charge anything…Nada, 0..Maybe that was his way to make up for his sometimes slow response time…..In any event that is impressive..Hope you are well. We will be in Argentina most of November, then to Nicaragua and Panama in January…One of my sons in selling property in Panama ..Cheers,.Ed

Andres continuing help and goodwill to our readers is one reason I have posted details of his Ecuador beach preconstruction property offer (get a $135,000 condo for $35,000) here.

We are not involved in this project financially or in any way.  Preconstruction property deals involve high risk and anyone who considers this Ecuador beach preconstruction property deal should use all normal due diligence.

South Ecuador Beach Property


New ideas offer great opportunity so our south Ecuador beach property tour has attracted attention.

In a moment we’ll look at another green battery thought. First here is a south Ecuador beach real estate advertisement placed by our friend and attorney, Dr. Andres Cordova.

ecuador-beach-property

I’m glad to see you are doing a coastal series.  I have a program that can provide your readers with opportunity, value, service, new horizons and community.

I am very focused on Salinas real estate, especially in the Punta Carnero area.  The trend is focusing on Punta Carnero, where good planning and zoning and great initiatives will create a major opportunity. It can be the example of what Salinas could have been. It’s very early on in the process, hence the major opportunity.

I see tremendous potential and if investors and buyers are to get at the beginning of the wave that’s coming, timing is of the essence. Those who come in early on will reap the most rewards. Elements are coming together, synergy is ensuing; this is snowballing big time. Once I explain why I believe this to be occurring you to will see it as vividly as I do.

ecuador-beach-property

South Ecuador beach photo from Dr. Andres Cordova.

My idea is to not only offer value, but also services, information and structures to help investors and expats take the plunge with the most happiness, with the least stress. It’s about quality of life and sound investing.

My plan entails 6 participations of $35.000 each. Let me explain the process:

–          Each participant invests $35,000.
–          A 0.5 beachfront property in Punta Carnero is purchased and placed under a trust.
–          A 12 story, 36 condo building is designed for the lot.
–          A preconstruction sales campaigned is launched.
–          Once 30 condos are sold the investors will get a 2 bedroom, ocean view condo each, valued at $135.000.
–          The trust guarantees pre-construction buyers and investors too.
–          If project does not take off in a limited time, trust will sell the property and reimburse investors.

An investment of $35,000 offers the chance of a $135.000 condo in 18 – 24 months. The cost of the land at the time should very well suffice to cover the investment and then some.

We want to really, really stand apart on virtues of value, good design and really understanding the wants and needs of our prospective customers. We have a major teamed lined up to pull this through. I can explain the opportunity to great depth; it makes for a very compelling case.  Andres.

Andres email address is afcordova@accessinter.net

We have not reviewed this opportunity and investors should use all due diligence.

New Green Investing Battery Thought.

Yesterday’s message looked at a green investing opportunity for major advances in battery technology.

Several readers sent comments like this:

Hi Gary,  Thanks for your article.  I believe that you are on to the right track in looking for ways to store renewable, energy, especially PV & wind, with batteries.  I came to this same thought sometime ago and, after some research, it lead me to Zenn Motor Co. (ZNNMF).  They now own about 10% of EESTOR, which is close to presenting a truly revolutionary energy storage device.  It is essentially a high efficiency capacitor.  I won’t go into the technical aspects because you can read more than you want on some of the blogs.  If the product works even remotely close to what they are projecting, it will cause tremendous and positive change in our world.  If it doesn’t, I will have lost a few $, but the risk still looks worth it to me.

I googled  Zenn Motor Co. (ZNNMF) and read a lot of positive data about this but also saw some negative information.  This is a very high risk venture deal and I am not a penny stock venture risk taker but those of you who are may find this of interest.

Another high risk environmental share that is far more interesting to me is a far more stable company, Vestas, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer.  Vestas was one of the big winners in our green portfolio that we created with Jyske Bank.  Jyske is currently recommending  Vestas. You can see why at Jyske TV’s latest Financial Friday.

This show also shows why the US dollar may rise in the short term, but is likely to fall long term and also looks at why no Asian currency is ready to take over as reserve currency of the world.

The greatest opportunity (and risk) always comes from new ideas.  Whether  in new technology or in new places… those who jump into the winners first make the most.   Portfolio theory shows that a well managed small diversification into higher risk deals enhances the overall return of a portfolio without creating a great deal of more volatility in the portfolio.  So until next message, may all your risks be great ones.

Web Business Idea


Multiple websites can help in marketing.

You may want to live on the beach, in the mountains or in an exciting city. Having a business with multiple websites can help.

In a moment we’ll look at Ecuador beach real estate contacts.

ecuador-beach-jama

Ecuador Beach near Bahia.

First, here is an excerpt from our emailed course “Tangled Webs how to Have an Internet Business.”

This excerpt shows ways to earn income even if you are living on a secluded Ecuador beach or anywhere in the world.

At the writing of this lesson, one of our several websites ranks on Google’s first page for each of these the phrases below:

ecuador banking
ecuador attorney
ecuador ticket
ecuador condos
ecuador property
ecuador beach property
ecuador beach real estate
ecuador andean real estate
ecuador shipping
ecuador cars
ecuador real estate tours
ecuador dentists
ecuador doctors
ecuador health care
ecuador pets
ecuador roses
ecuador lilies
ecuador fares
ecuador law
ecuador insurance contacts
ecuador health insurance

Yet we use no tricks… just good content supported logically by some cross linkage from one site to the other.

We continually test how to make our sites more effective for our readers and how to make them more effective attracting new readers.

Our Gary Scott site adds about 30 new readers a day, 20 from our Pay Per Click program and 10 from referrals or search engines.

One benefit from having several sites is that you can have differing areas of focus at each site.

Our main areas of focus have been:

* Benefits of Ecuador
* Benefits of International Investing
* Benefits of International Business
* Benefits of Global Health Secrets

We are adding benefits of Sustainable Living.

Currently we are testing ways to maximize crossover opportunities.

If for example a new reader signs up for our Ecuador information, he may also have an interest in either international investing, international business or health secrets.

The tests are looking at how to expose all the foci without moving too far away from the reader’s original area of interest.

Keep in mind our 7 P Prospecting  plan is to let a reader identify a Problem via the Pathway of the search engines.  We offer a Promise (our ad) to help solve the Problem. The Promise  leads the Prospect  to our landing page which provides a Presentation about who we are and how we can help solve their Problem.  Part of the Presentation offers them a free report.  The report  is then sent every day (to develop their confidence in us) as we offer low cost but Profitably Priced Products that help solve the reader’s  Problem.

Once a reader has signed up for a free report, we fill our Promise and send them information everyday that might help the solve their Problem.

If you jump too far from the reader’s focus, too fast, you can risk confusing them, being looked at as a spammer and or as wasting the reader’s time.

You can read this entire lesson as a Tangled Web subscriber.  See how to receive this $299 emailed course free below.

Retire With Ecuador Real Estate Value & IRAs


One great reason to retire in Ecuador is the real estate value. Plus you can own Ecuador or other overseas investment and retirement real estate with your IRA.

Retirement costs of in Ecuador are low because the cost of a home and utilities are so low.

There is great value, plus enormous beauty in the Andean and coastal countryside.

The wonderful crafts markets of Ecuador create export opportunity to supplement income when you retire in Ecuador.

There is so much beautiful property and…

homes seem so inexpensive like these houses at San Miguel (under $100,000) and…

cotacachi-ecuador-san-miguel

Primavera condos (under $46,000) that…

multi-currency-Ecuador-condos

it becomes easy to misunderstand value. Take for instance Ecuador’s empty beaches.  This is a shot of a wonderful coastal land in Ecuador.

What is this property’s value?  Prices on some Ecuador beach property are really low!   When you find a beautiful piece of property like this at a really low price, how can you lose?

Here is how you can see your Ecuador retirement wealth shrivel.

Our friend Todd Smith recently sent me some photos of a trip he made down California’s coast.

Imagine buying land on the beach in California 30 years ago.

You couldn’t miss.

Right?

Todd’s photos reminded me that you can.  Todd photos was scripted with this text:

If you ever want to get away completely, visit the Lost Coast of California.

retire-in-ecuador-real-estate

In Humboldt County, head south on Rt. 211 from Fortuna, towards the ocean.

You’ll follow a winding, narrow almost-one-lane road for about 30 miles before you reach the Pacific, and you’ll be lucky if you pass a single car.

Be sure to fill up before you go because you’ll be almost completely on your own.
a coastal island in the trees.

The Lost Coast gets it’s name from the fact that Rt. 1 and Rt. 101 completely bypass this section of about 100 miles of shoreline.

Except for signs of ranching and an occasional hamlet you would think you were the only person on this lovely, godforsaken planet.

retire-in-ecuador-real-estate

See all of Todd’s photos of the lost coast.

What value does this California real estate have…

retire-in-ecuador-real-estate

beyond building a barn?

Real estate has two values… the value for you as a user… and what someone else will pay for it.

If you retire in Ecuador and want to live in an isolated place in the mountains or on the coast… great. You can find some incredible real estate values.

If you buy to resell and plan to profit… beware! Some Ecuador real estate will appreciate dramatically as pressures of modern life shift agricultural land to residential, recreational or commercial.

However some beach property and mountain land like this…

retire-in-ecuador

in 10, 20 and 30 years from now will look like this.

retire-in-ecuador

The value will have increased due to inflation but great appreciation is not likely.

Investors who are ready to retire in Ecuador should look closely at the likely time frame of land appreciation.  Be careful to make sure that your retirement liquidity needs do not come before appreciation.

You can also buy Ecuador real estate through an IRA… if you or your family are not going to live in or use the property.

This site has been helping people retire in Ecuador and to invest their IRAs abroad for years.

You can own real estate in your IRA, including non-U.S. real estate. Over the years, advisers have wrongly convinced many people they cannot own real estate, as well as a number of other alternative investments, inside their IRA’s or other retirement plans. Nothing could be further from the truth. In actuality, the IRS allows a great deal of flexibility when it comes to investing the assets of your retirement account.

The trouble comes if you don’t have a “self directed” IRA or if you work with a custodian who imposes his own investment restrictions. Most of these restrictions have nothing to do with the code governing retirement accounts but are instead employed to make life easier for the custodian.

Here is what is allowed:

• Raw land

• Condos

• Office buildings

• Single-family homes

• Multi-family homes

• Apartment buildings

• Improved land

The IRS defines prohibited transactions and self-dealing that you cannot do in your IRA.  Your retirement plan is meant to benefit you at retirement… not earlier so you cannot directly or indirectly, deal with yourself or a family member.

You cannot lend money, extend credit, or furnish goods, services, or facilities to yourself or a disqualified individual. In other words, you can invest in any type of real estate you want as long as it is an investment and not for your own use currently.

However if you find your dream Ecuador retirement home  that you want to live in when you reti you can buy it in the IRA, rent it for now and take it as a distribution from your plan when you retire.

You can have a full report and contacts with a custodians who can help you own Ecuador real estate in your IRA.   Subscribe here.

IRAs at Jyske Bank

It is now easier to invest your liquid IRA funds safely overseas as well.  Jyske Global Asset Management can invest your IRA investments offshore in coordination with GoldStar Trust!

This makes it easier for you to give your IRA International investing and currency diversification.

Here is how the JGAM IRA plan works.   Your US custodian will be GoldStar Trust in Texas. Your offshore custodian bank will be Jyske Bank in Copenhagen (Denmark).  Jyske Global Asset Management will be your asset manager.

This setup is in accordance with IRA regulations. JGAM sends quarterly and annual statements as well as standard IRA statements from GoldStar Trust.

Ecuador Beach & Mountain Retirement


Ecuador beach retirement?   Retire in Ecuador in the cool Andes? Or just live in Ecuadorian the mountains or on the sea?  The best way to know is to visit and see Ecuador for more than a few days.

This is why we have created a Retire-in-Ecuador inspection Surf & Turf Hotel program so you can live a month in the Andean mountains and on the Ecuador’s coast at prices far below rates you would normally pay.

The Retire-in-Ecuador program is designed to help you see a huge chunk of Ecuador as you immerse yourself in the wonderful culture and get to know Ecuador’s friendly people.

There is a secret to the program.  You inspections are centered around two seemingly isolated… yet central locations to help you see as much of the country in a most efficient way.

These locations are Cotacachi… north of Quito and San Clemente… north of Manta.

Surf & Turf lets you stay at Meson de Las Flores and Palmazul two of our favorite small hotels in Ecuador.

Welcome to Meson de las Flores… our colonial hotel.

Meson is in Cotacachi and near Otavalo. This area offers the essence of Andean friendliness and colonial charm. Breakfasts are included in your plan and served in this open air, central courtyard where our friendly staff helps you dine Al Fresco in the clean mountain air.

Or you can dine in the mural room.

Meson is located directly off Cotacachi’s main plaza and next to the village cathedral and Plaza. Here is a view from Meson of the cathedral at dawn.

From the minute you enter the hotel, you feel its history…

yet the rooms have all been renovated for your complete comfort.

Enjoy the company of Meson guests during evenings in the fireplace room for an evening snack, drink and a blazing fire to ward of the cool mountain air.

Cotacachi is perfectly located so you have access to Quito, Otavalo and Ibarra and surrounds. This is one of the major areas where new residents are moving.

Our normal surf and turf plan provides you with two weeks stay here at Meson de las Flores.  Then you head for Ecuador’s coast.

Palmazul Hotel & Spa is north of Manta, the central hub for reaching Ecuador’s beaches.  Palmazul is a new hotel right on the beach. Here I am working in the beach view dining room where your breakfast (also included) is served.

tranquil-work-at-sea

Both hotels Meson and Palmazul have just 15 rooms to assure privacy and personal attention.

You enjoy special savings on these hotel accommodations for two weeks in the mountains and two weeks on the sea.

This Ecuador Hometel plan cuts your hotel costs in half and makes these wonderful hotels your home.

Enjoy the colonial Ecuador hotel in the Andes El Meson de las Flores and on the sea at Palmazul…14 days stay in each hotel for a low total cost of $1,299 Single, $1,499 couple order here.

Please check with us for space availability before you book. Contact us at mesondelasflores@gmail.com

Ecuador Coastal Hotels Savings are now available at Palmazul Coastal Hotel Spa, one of the newest Ecuador beach hotels.

Palmazul sits directly on Ecuador’s beach and is offering an Ecuador coastal Hometel program so you can have a home away from home on Ecuador’s beach…live in luxury on the Ecuador sea at very low cost for a month (or longer) at a time.

Palmazul becomes your home for an Ecuadorian coastal adventure on the Pacific.

multi-currency-condo-clubhouse

This is your Ecuador coastal swimming pool and tennis court…really on the beach…overlooking the Ecuadorian Pacific.

ecuador-beach-condo-tennnis court view

This is your Ecuador coastal swimming pool and tennis court…really on the beach…overlooking the Ecuadorian sea.

Here are some snapshots of the Palmazul Coastal Hotel and Spa and next door Vistazul condos.   You’l stay either in the hotel or in a two bedroom condo based on availability… but everyone is entitled to use the club house, dining rooms, pools, tennis courts, spa and beach.

The monthly price includes a wonderful served breakfast from this dining room overlooking Ecuador’s wonderful Pacific coast.

Dinner here is special too. You can visit this Ecuadorian fisherman when he brings in his fresh Pacific catch each day back to the hotel….where you can choose your meal. Few Ecuadorian coastal hotels offer this service.

San Clemente is a charming rustic coastal village, 45 minutes north of the port city of Manta, almost exactly in the middle of Ecuador ’s coast.  Bahia, Ecuador’s nicest coastal town is 30 minutes north.  Palmazul is perfectly located on a small road that ends just a short distance away into a cliff  thus  enabling you to enjoy proximity to town yet it is quiet as there is no through traffic. Transportation is also easy and fun…small jitneys everywhere!

San Clemente is a perfect starting point for exploring Ecuador ’s coast…in the middle of Ecuador beaches so you can reach the north or south of the coast in a day.

Yet in San Clemente, the days are full.  Fish from the jetties, stroll the beach, travel the coast, hike, horse ride, play tennis or just relax around the pool or on the beach.

Of course you can also work. Palmazul offers free wireless broadband for your laptop. Enjoy the peace and quiet of Ecuador ’s coast, but always stay in touch electronically with the rest of the world.

The spa also has a treatment room where you can enjoy a massage.

Your room will have a view and private balcony so your comfort does not end when the sun sets.

As dusk arrives so does the sea breeze…fresh into your room.

Cozy in your bed…

The surf serenades you in a soft night’s sleep…so you’ll be ready for the gentle surf and Pacific waters warmed by Ecuador ’s never ending sun.

To make your reservation, simply choose the order form below.

Gary

Enjoy really low rates in the mountains and on the sea with our month long surf  turf Retire-in-Ecuador program.  At normal rates a two week stay at each hotel (15 days at Meson and 16 days at Pamazul) would cost $3,262.  You save up to $2,073 because the one payment surf & turf rate is $1,299 ($1,499 for two).

Please check space availability before you book. For El Meson please contact mesondelasflores@gmail.com

Ecuador & Internet Businesses


Ecuador is a great place to operate an internet business.

Having an internet business that lets you go anywhere… in places like this… gives great satisfaction.

Ecuador-Business-Fulfillment

Merri and I just completed our June Shamanic Mingo Tour.   This excerpt from the latest shamanic health report I am preparing for our Ecuador Living subscribers outlines part of the tour that included a trek into this valley.

Ecuador-Business-Fulfillment

You can read the entire report as an Ecuador Living subscriber.

This was an extremely fulfilling tour for Merri, me and our delegates.

The recent, global economic transformation means that the way we work, live and earn will next be the same.  The new era ahead will destroy the financial security of many,  yet bring great opportunity to a few… who adapt and learn how to earn in the new era.

We are enjoying a quantum shift and the way we work, live, invest and do business will never be as before. Many who had not planned to keep working will have to have a way to enhance their pension.  Many will need new sources of income.

One of the great things about this shift is it gives everyone the opportunity to have a business they love, as Merri and I do with these tours.

With an internet business you can do just about anything… anywhere!

Our internet business makes tours like this shamanic adventure possible… bringing dozens of like minded souls from around the world to share this wisdom of the ancients.

The greatest asset we can have in the new era is an ability to serve… to produce a product or service that adapts to the changing ways.  An internet business lets us do this.

A recent special report in Time magazine entitled “The Way We’ll Work” explained this financial dilemma in this way:

Ten years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web.  So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. No one is going to pay you just to show up. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative and far less secure work world. It will be run by a generation with new values — and women will increasingly be at the controls.

These words could not be more true.  They mean disaster for many who plan to live in the old ways. These words spell great opportunity for those who adapt and enjoy the new ways to earn and live.

Take Merri’s and my business as an example. We are both past retirement age yet continue to see our business and income grow and evolve… in truly fun and satisfying ways.   We have a business that works in Cotacachi, a small Andean village, in Florida, our home and in the Blue Ridge of North Carolina or summer place. Our business can help us earn anywhere we choose in the world.

Our website began eleven years ago as an adjunct to our print business. Today we don’t sell a single scrap of paper.

This is all possible because we have a web based business and we would like to share how you can have freedom, fulfillment and extra income with your own internet business too.

You can learn how to have your own web business from our eMailed Web Business Course… The Tangled Webs We Weave. Enroll here $299

This problem of being able to earn and enjoy the process in the new era is so acute and the importance of having more people do what they love so vital that we created this course…on how to develop your own international internet business.

Years ago, Merri and I  had 23,000 print readers… micro sized in publishing terms… but very, very profitable for us.  We made millions from this business.

Yet we saw this rapidly changing economy coming… and had learned that small is beautiful.

We decided to become even smaller… but wealthier and happier!

Money had stopped mattering as much, our children were grown, finished with university, we sold our print business and took a year off… lived with a shaman high in the Andes.

Then we morphed into an internet only business.  Our readership began small, with  about 1,600 email readers in 1998.  We expected to slow down and smell the roses more.

We even bought an isolated hacienda high in the Andes called Rosaspamba (Place of Roses).

Here we are playing around building a hut at the Hacienda.

ecuador-patience

As crazy as it seems, we could actually run a business with this small readership and make a profit because our readers are so wonderfully responsive.

Why?  How?

This is what the new course I am creating will teach you….how to have a small, safe, profitable global internet business by creating wonderfully response, fun to be with, like-minded customers.

How small?

Today, our business remains micro sized but we have grown from 1,600 readers to four  main subscription lists consisting of 16,234 subscribers.

How safe?

The downturn of 2008 has not slowed us a bit.   In fact we  are growing faster, in number of subscribers and income, than ever.   December 2008 was our busiest month on the internet ever…by about 50%.  Then in the six months of 2009 rose even more!

This is all at  a time when many say the world is economically depressed. Yet our sales are way up and growing almost every month.

How profitable?

Our list and sales are still tiny compared to many of our competitors and associates who make millions a month.   We make tens of thousands of dollars…sometimes hundreds of thousands each month… way more than our cost of living and we earn it in fun ways… traveling, writing… meeting interesting people.

Here I am at a recent seminar in Naples, Florida speaking, with a panel of economic excerpts from around the world, to 115 people mostly who came from our internet business.

multi-currency-debt

Here are the delegates.

multi-currency-debt

We enjoyed walking the Florida beach, talking to these wonderful people and basking in the sun.. yet were paid in two days more than most people make in a month.

Yet we have been able to add this extra income with a surprisingly small amount of added overheads.  This works perfectly for Merri and me…a fun sized readership. In our opinion, this should be the key in business… satisfaction… fulfillment and fun…through service along with the profit.

Yet, profits do matter. Almost every month our internet sales have been rising. In 2007, 2008 and into 2009 they have risen every month on month  and created a new record for web based sales for us.

These internet sales alone have given us the freedom to live in an isolated Blue Ridge farm during summers and in Florida and Ecuador the rest of the year…yet still earn many tens of thousands of extra dollars a month.

multi-currency-debt

Merri and I walk to our Blue Ridge office to speak with a group about how to have an internet business.

Now you can learn everything I do to create this extra income and have fun and fulfillment in a micro publishing business.

ecuador-internet-business

Merri and I work during the winter in the sunny courtyard at the Cotacachi Andean hotel we own and keep profitable due to our internet business.

The syllabus of this course will help you learn how to find something that is fun, fulfilling and profitable for you to do.

ecuador-internet-business

We often take breaks and visit our Ecuador beach condo, where I can still work because my internet business keeps me earning wherever I am in the world.

ecuador-internet-business

In the summer I can even work in the woods with our hound dog, Ma.

Our growing income is one reason I want to share this course with you.

The economic downturn of 2008 means that more of my readers will need a new way to earn in the years ahead so my webmaster who helped me start this site has agreed to co-write the course with me.

In the course Merri and I explain what we do in the business.  The writing…the marketing…the product planning and such.

Our webmaster outlines the technical part. How to chose a server…set up a shopping cart…create pay per click systems…send thousands of emails a day.

The course comes is composed of three studies.

Study one of the course is a course in its own right entitled International Business Made EZ

Study two is the course Self Fulfilled How to be a Self Publisher

Study three is “The Tangled Webs We Weave” and looks at all the technical aspects of developing a web based business including:

* How to set up the website.

* How to use shopping carts.

* How to create pages.

* How to develop reader lists.

* How to create electronic products and income.

* How to get good search engine rankings. (See an excerpt on this here).

* How to gain tax advantages from an International web based business.

* How to stay small and yet create big profits.

Though we like to remain small, this does not mean all of our students will.  Our webmaster started with us first but since has grown to be the chief internet consultant for several much larger internet marketing companies that send over a billion emails a year!

This course entitled “Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Internet Business” is available at $299.

This is a bargain. Merri and I have been traveling and doing international business for 41 years. We have had a web based business for over ten years. You can share everything we have learned for just $299.

Plus we provide our standard full guarantee. Enroll.  Try the course for 30 days. If not satisfied we’ll give you an immediate, full… no fuss refund.

New Salinas Ecuador Beach Project


Last week we let our Ecuador Living subscribers know about a new Ecuador beach project near Salinas Ecuador.

Dr Andres Cordova has been our friend and attorney in Ecuador for more than a decade. He  has helped many of our readers in many ways.

Andres is also a property developer with an environmental ethic. He has developments in the Galapagos and near Mindo Ecuador.

Andres is now starting a new development near the coastal town of Salinas Ecuador.

Andres writes:

Punta Carnero is poised to become one of the most important coastal-development areas in Ecuador and if location is important (it certainly is) timing is too. International interest in Ecuadorian coastal real estate is growing by the day, prompted by international conditions, great values to be found in Ecuador, pressing demographics and boomer’s needs too.

For most of Ecuador’s coast, many compromises need to be made, but in Punta Carnero’s case, there are many elements already in place and so many more coming that its is quite “the” option right now.

For starters, there’s an airport just minutes away, currently overhauled and made into an international, open-skies operation; medical care, shopping, restaurants, parks, transportation and other amenities are easily within reach, barely minutes away.

There are rather excellent connecting highways and roads in the area.

The beach right across Punta Carnero is spectacular, with a wide stretch of white sand, spectacular waves and the most beautiful sunsets you are likely to see.

Punta Carnero lies barely a few minutes from the resort town of Salinas but without the crowded beaches and intensity. You can have the best of both worlds in Punta Carnero!

As the Punta Carnero area becomes increasingly prevalent in the investor’s radars, prices are bound to come up so the time is now.

For example, right now there is an 8.000 sq.ft. beachfront lot that is just perfect for a villa, a few condos or for a pure investment in land going for $51,950. You can have a spectacular ocean-front villa or do a few condos in a mid-rise and get quite a profit out of it. We are sure ready to help you make this a reality.

The time to act is now, to secure property in what should be Ecuador’s next beach-front sensation.

Neither Merri or I, or any associate or company is involved financially in this project.
