Secrets of Health & Longevity

A midnight breeze kisses hemlock and pine in the deep embrace of an amber moon.  Dark clouds race and churn the lunar cream over the path I tread towards a cemetery just ahead.

cemetary

Family cemetery at our Blue Ridge Farm.

For over 50 years, my wife and I traveled the world writing articles for publications like Truth and Plenty and Independence Monthly.  We lived in Asia, Europe and South America as well as Smalltown USA.

During that time we lived and studied with the shamans of Ecuador to understand the longevity found in some areas that seemed otherwise poor.  For example, Dr. Alexander Leaf, a famous medical researcher from Harvard Medical School studied longevity in numerous mountainous areas on behalf of National Geographic Magazine.  This research looked at the people of Abkhasia in the Caucasus mountains south of Russia, those who lived in Vilcabamba in the Andes of South America and the Hunza, a mountainous valley in Pakistan.

These valleys had far less medical care and far fewer hospitals than most of us enjoy in the modern world, but the research showed that a much larger percentage of those populations lived 100 years and beyond, vital, active and in good health.

We found health secrets here in the Blue Ridge Mountains as well and have gained enormously by integrating the ancient health wisdom of each into our lives.

Standing in a cemetery at night may not seem the norm, but there is a healthy reason for some of us to stroll in the moonlight a night.  More on this in a moment, but first let me share another reason why I visit this cemetery to reflect on longevity and health.

There is a person in this cemetery that I admire.  Ida is her name and secrets she shares are the core of good health, energy and long life.  These are secrets for weight loss, stress reduction and longevity.  Ida has proven this fact by living to be 115!

These mountain cemeteries are dotted throughout the Blue Ridge, part and parcel of life up here in the High Country.  Several of her relatives lay at rest in this burial ground…all located on our Blue Ridge farm.

When I find myself forgetting what good health really is, I come here and think about Ida’s tales.   John is resting here.  He passed at age 91 and his wife, Jill, aged 95.  Two more of the same family name, but an era earlier, were aged 86 and 100 at death.

And then there is Ida, her message is strongest because she passed at 115.  The headstone says she was born in 1794 and left this world in 1909.  Imagine what she saw living during three centuries!

The secrets from their headstones are clear.  First, some places are healthier than others.   Second, lifestyle affects longevity more than quadruple bypasses, pacemakers, chemo, radiation, modern medicine and drugs.  These people were dirt poor mountain farmers and did not have health insurance, hospitals or regular checkups.  Some may have never seen a doctor.  Third, a simple, natural life is filled with good health, energy, relaxation and strength.

Clean air, pure water and fresh food are important medicines!  These hardy mountain people worked hard and kept life simple.  Longevity was their reward.  Modern medicine does many wonderful things to manage illness.  But the imbalanced Western way of life does not do much that encourages wellness.

I share longevity secrets gained from those five decades of travel in my reports on how to have natural health.  What good is it to make a ton of money if you cannot enjoy it because of poor health?

Merri and I have searched out health secrets during our global journeys, because medical expenses are the biggest threat to our wealth.   These secrets are gleaned and distilled from months and years spent with Vaidyas and Pundits of India, Sufi masters, Chinese herbalists, Tibetan Monks and Andean Yatchaks, who specialize in one aspect of longevity and rejuvenation or another.  The secrets also come from a continuing research about people who are active but aged over 100.

We have put the secrets we have learned in three reports on how to have natural health.

You do not have to be a Monk or even very disciplined to benefit from these secrets as they have been refined to work for modern people with modern lifestyles.

The reports do not aim to cure any specific ill but look at how to build stamina, vitality, energy and endurance so the body is better able to care for itself.   We share ideas we have learned and used to renew, rebuild and rejuvenate.

Here are a few of the longevity secrets in the reports.

Secret #1: Restrict your diet.  This first secret hardly seems hidden at all.  This is a simple, universally ignored reality.  Cut your caloric intake.  This is one of the few, the only scientifically proven factor that increases longevity.

Most of us cannot simply stop eating.  Hunger is too powerful a force!  We all need to learn how to change eating habits so we have plenty of beautiful food to eat, but less calories.  When we make the change we can eat more but still lost weight and reduced inches.

Don’t think this means you’ll be eating celery, lettuce, cardboard tasting crisp bread and such either.  Part of wellness is enjoying your food!  Learn to eat more effectively and discover good tasting, balanced, low calorie food.  Find out how to prepare this food so it’s more nourishing and filling and finally how to prepare it with herbs and spices that modulate blood sugar levels so hunger fades away.  There are many small, simple yet effective secrets that can make us crave good foods instead of bad.

An example is reducing calories with spice coordination.  When ginger, cinnamon and cloves are taken in correct amounts, at the right time, these spices crank your metabolism as they calm your appetite.  This is just one of numerous, simple health tricks.

The correct mix of protein, carbohydrates and fats for energy and weight loss is another example.   There are many easy-to-buy-at-the-supermarket foods.  For example, you can enjoy a breakfast of protein balanced pancakes with organic panella-canela syrup.  Every ingredient is inexpensive, easily obtainable yet this delicious sweet meal fills as it turns up the calorie burning process.

Eating secrets include seven easy ways to identify your body type so you can customize a diet and know when and what to eat in the right way.

Let me make one other point clear about food.  There are a lot of diets today that claim to be the one and only best way to lose weight.  Maybe they work or not.  Even those that do work may be inconvenient or expensive and do not work for everyone!  The nutritional plans in the reports are derived from diets created by mystic healers in many distant lands. The entire program has been modified for today’s lifestyles and tastes.  Practically all the food you learn about can be easily obtained.  Preparation, mixing, timing and method of eating are as important as the quality and type of food!

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

Another nutritional trick unveiled has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  During our wellness sessions we review how to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

Secret #2: have more than a routine.  Create ritual!  Those who live extra-ordinarily long lives seem to share this common trait.  Whatever they do, they do in moderation, in a very similar way and with great gusto.  For example, if they drink an ounce of whisky every day, at six o clock, they do not do this at five some days and eight others.  They do not have a half ounce one day and two another.  They tend to have one ounce at six p.m. every day.  This instills discipline, keeps life simple (very important) and allows the body to get used to doing whatever it is it has to do.  Take Chris Mortensen one of the oldest documented men in the 1990s who at 113 said of his weekly cigar, “If you take my weekly cigar away from me, I am going to die”.  The anticipation and ritual of whatever pleasure he receives from this is far more life-giving than the stress.  The world’s oldest documented woman in the 1990s, Jeanne Clement, at age 122 drank cognac and ate a pound of chocolate a week (but never two pounds).

Secret #3: remain independent, challenged, active and needed.  One of the most important features found in isolated Ecuadorian valleys where people live long lives is that old age was revered.  Often people at age 100, even 110 are still active and working!  Max Zimmer of Los Angeles came to the US from Austria in 1911 with only a two dollar bill.  At age 103 he still had the same two-dollar bill and had built and still ran a multimillion-dollar business.

One medical doctor, who specializes in anti-aging, points out that most centenarians seldom spend much time with doctors.  When they finally get sick, they die quickly and with little expense.  They depend on themselves to remain healthy, not others.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is what others have said about this information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times.  Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

There are many ways to improve health naturally.

universal-frequency

Watching the sun rise promotes good natural health for example.  Our use of color and observing the correct colors (frequencies) at the correct time are important.

I want to share these secrets of health and longevity with readers and offer a special report on the almost unknown health booster, the hogberry.

Gain Huge Health Benefits from the Amazing Hogberry

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

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

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is the only way to attain this report as it is not for sale or available to the general public.  Intermittent fasting can make your life better. It works best when you use the nutritional, exercise and purification tips outlined in these three reports.  As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you.  The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made a special offer.

View of our next door neighbor’s farm.

Friend of ours for the past 25 years, Ed and Phyllis Sabo lived just 5 blocks from us in London when we were there.

When Ed retired from Shell Oil 11 years ago he and Phyllis visited us and fell in love with the countryside up here.

They decided to stay on and look for a farm themselves.  After a month of fruitless search, the day they were ready to go our next door neighbor called and said… “we are selling our farm”.   Ed and Phyllis visited and bought that farm the same day… 34 acres with a nice farmhouse on Little Horse Creek, a garage and barn.

Sadly Ed passed last year and his son just called me to say that Phyllis has decided to sell the farm.   Their property line stretches up to the top of the mountain and meets our land… so we have for years walked back and forth through the woods.

You can see the position of the farm relative to ours at the county’s GIS map.  Our farm is inside the purple lines with the words LITTLE HORSE TRL running through the middle of it.  Phyllis’s farm is upper left with the words JOHN ALLEY RD running into it. The three dots above the words RD represent the position of the farmhouse, garage and barn.

Your can see the creek (blue line) running in front of the farm house.

Here are some shots to help you understand the lay of the land.

Driving along John Alley Rd., you see the farm on the left. The horse is is the neighbors pasture.

Ashe County Farm

Coming off John Alley Road the driveway rides through the center of the farm.  The pastures to the right view and about all the land up the hill are part of the farm.

Ashe County Farm

Coming up the drive the barn is on the right and garage left. The farm house is just a bot further left.

Ashe County Farm

This is the farmhouse and garage seen through the front meadow.  The white boards in the driveway on the right are the bridge over Little Horse Creek which flows along the front of the house.

Our property line starts at the top of the hill behind the house.

Ashe County Farm

Here is a better shot of the house.

Ashe County Farm

Phyllis has not yet put it on the market and would just like to get back what was put in… about $179,000. The house is a fully furnished (except couch) Johnny Appleseed built in the 1940s about 1,200 square feet but with a basement.  If that house is  worth $69,000 or so, that leaves the property price working out around $3,200 an acre.  Considering that the farm has a creek flowing through it and two large meadows, this is a pretty good value.

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).

Farm & House Lots in Cuenca Ecuador Area


I like living on a farm so here is an offer of 5 farm &  house lots in the Cuenca area shown in the paid advertisement below.

In March 2001 an article at this site “I left my heart in San Francisco Ecuador” said:  Cayo Tambo (in Quichua, a place to rest), is a huge shark’s tooth peak that bites at the powder blue sky. White waters of the Paute River dash over giant river rock smoother than marble as they rush to the valley floor below the brand new road.

This article described Merri’s and my search for an Ecuador farm in the Cuenca area.   We fell in love with the incredible beauty of this area and nearly purchased Hacienda San Francisco.   Though circumstances stopped our finalizing that deal we have never lost the image of this area’s beauty in our mind’s eye. 


5 farm & house lots an hour from Cuenca Ecuador are remaining for sale!

Improve Safety – Increase Profits

Learn how to improve the safety of your savings and investments by selecting good value and diversified investments in a multi-currency portfolio.

Few decisions are as important to your wealth as the value of the markets and currencies you invest in.  This has been our area of expertise since the 1970s and we have worked with and advised some of the largest currency traders in the world.

Gain Protection First – Against the Dollar’s Purchasing Power Loss.  In 1913 the The Federal Reserve Act created the Federal Reserve Bank to protect the purchasing power of the US dollar, which has since lost about 94% of its purchasing power.  Here is its price compared with gold since 1900.

Dollar chart from pricedingold.com (1)

The Fed has let the dollar lose most of its strength plus has allowed interest rates to fall so low, that safe investments cannot keep pace with the drop in purchasing power.

multi-currency-chart

Chart from Grandfather Economic Report (2)

Many investors have forgotten about the risk of a falling dollar because the greenback has been strong for the past five years.  This temporary dollar strength came after the great recession of 2009 just as there was temporary dollar strength after the great recession of the 1980s.  Then about six years after the recession, an agreement was made by major governments to weaken the dollar.

There was a severe global economic recession affecting much of the developed world in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  The United States and Japan exited the recession relatively early, but high unemployment would continue to affect Europe and the UK through to at least 1985.  As a consequence between 1980 and 1985, the US dollar had appreciated by about 50% against the Japanese yen, Deutsche mark, French franc and British pound, the currencies of the next four biggest economies at the time. Then the governments reached an agreement and exchange rate values of the dollar versus the yen declined by 51% from 1985 to 1987.

Now the world is again in the same place.  The recession is over.  Europe is a bit behind in recovery and the dollar is higher than before the recession.

There is no reason for the greenback to be  strong.

The agreement in 1985 was called the Plaza Accord.   Over just two years the greenback dropped nearly 50% versus other major currencies.  The next accord will generate great profits for those who know what to do while it ruins the purchasing power of dollar back investments.

The strong US dollar and low interest rates have created one of the biggest stock and multi currency breakout opportunities in history.  Learn how to create a plan to profit from multi currency shifts ahead.

One reason for the potential gains is that stock markets and currency values are cyclical.  Due to low interest rates created by the 2009 economic downturn, the US and a few other equity markets have risen to some of their highest prices, ever.  These markets offer very poor value now.  The steep valuation creates incredible profit potential but also hides some enormous risks.  Learn how to develop an investing strategy based of earnings, cash flows, dividends and book values to increase potential for profit and reduce the risks.

Next Extra Profit Created by Value Breakouts

Over the history of US equity markets, the  price of overall markets have risen about 9.1 percent, respectively, compounded annually.  Yet over more than a hundred years of stock market activity,  a majority of the profits have come from just a very few dramatic breakouts.

Equity markets are ruled in the short term by emotions that create unpredictable ups and downs.  Numerous fears of defaults, worries of double dip recessions, high unemployment, concerns about fiscal cliffs, hold investors back.  Yet global population growth and advances in production and prosperity are relentless economic fundamentals that increase value.

When fear holds back a a fundamentally rising value, rising profit potential grows.  Values increase as prices stagnate.  Then markets break free and rocket upwards creating wealth, prosperity and growth.

Find out which breakouts are likely to take place next.

Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics. Cycles create recurring profits. Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

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

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

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

Learn how the Cyber War (WWIV) may change the way we live and act and how this will affect currencies and investments.

Learn:

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

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

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

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

keppler asset management chart

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

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

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.  This rate of expansion by the way is called the “Golden Ratio”.  It is a mathematical formula that controls the growth of most natural things; trees, the shape of leaves, the spiral of shells, as well as the way economies and societies grow.

We’ll sum the strategy, how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on your circumstances.

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

Enjoy investing more with slow, worry free, good value investing.  Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These are major foundations of the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  The losses created by this gap grow when investors trade short term under stress.

Learn how to put meaning into your investing by creating profitable strategies that combine good value investments with unique, personal goals.

Learn how to span the behavior gap.  Behavior gaps are among the biggest reasons why so many investors fail.  Human evolution makes fear the second most powerful motivator.  (Greed is the third.)  Fear creates investment losses due to behavior gaps.  Fear motivates us more strongly than desire.  By nature investors are risk adverse, when they should embrace risk.  Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed.  One powerful way to overcome the behavior gap is to invest with a purpose.

Combine your needs and capabilities with the secrets and the math of our good value model portfolio.

Share ideas about my good value portfolio.  My personal investment portfolio comes from a continual analysis of international stock markets and a comparison of their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.

Markets included in this portfolio are:

• Norway
• Australia
• Hong Kong
• Japan
• Singapore
• United Kingdom
• Taiwan
• South Korea
• China

These markets have been chosen based on four pillars of valuation.

• Absolute Valuation
• Relative Valuation
• Current versus Historic Valuation
• Current Relative versus Relative Historic Valuation

Learn how to use Country ETFs to easily construct a diversified, risk-controlled, equally weighted representative country portfolios in all of these good value countries.

To achieve this goal my portfolio consists of Country Index ETFs that track an index of shares in a specific country.  These country ETFs provide diversification into a basket of equities in the good value countries.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to pick and choose shares.  You can invest in the index which is like investing in all the shares in the index.  All you have to do is invest in an ETF that in turn invests passively in all the shares of the index.

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

The Test for Low Cost Trading

Research put every part of this portfolio in place, except knowing the best, easiest and least expensive way to buy.  A search for an optimal way to buy and hold boiled down to two methods.  One tactic to test was to use a unique online broker that appeared to offer the lowest cost deal.  The other approach was to use a community bank in Smalltown USA.  The small town bank that I use looks after my 401K trust account and their service is first class.  The benefit of small banks is that they still treat us as a human beings (instead of a number) and when we need, it’s easy to go right to the top to answer a question or get a problem resolved.  There are no call centers and the bank and the person looking after my account is just around the corner.

I created a test to see which offered the least expensive service.

Working with my banker in Smalltown USA,  I created two accounts, one at the online broker and the other at the bank. I placed $40,000 in each.

I set up the order for the country ETFs online, while my trust manager set up orders for the identical amounts of the same shares in his system.  Then we got on the phone, coordinated our timing and on a count of three each pushed the button “BUY”.

The results of this test  show how you can gain on any purchase of country ETFs.

So Many Ways to Profit With Farms


There are so many ways to profit with farms… especially those with multi dimensional opportunity.

ecuador-farms

Farm houses can be multi dimensional.  Is this an Ecuadorian farm house or a B&B… or both?  See the Ecuador farm below.

Our North Carolina farm for example has great sustainable timber potential but has been set up to offer multi dimensional opportunity.

Farm Building

Our office is  great place to write… a quiet sitting on our murmuring creek.

Yet we made it so it can also be…

Farm Building

a seminar center.

Farm Building

By adding a kitchen and…

Farm Building

bedroom, it can also be…

Farm Building

a rental unit.

One does not have to be a farmer to be invested in agriculture!

One way to invest in agriculture is to invest in agricultural land that is multi dimensional… earn in ways beyond farming as the value of the farmland grows because farmland can be better than gold.

farmland-value-charts

A long term reader and friend, CharlesVollum, edits Pricedingold.com. This site shows the value of farmland in terms of grams of gold.   Charles recently sent this note.

Hi Gary,

I really think you are right about Agricultural land… we are currently trying to add more to our portfolios, too (at the moment our focus is on Chile.)

On my web site I have some charts of investment real estate options, including timberland, commercial real estate, and farmland.  It is clear to me that farm land has held its value the best, dropped the least during the last crunch (2008-2009) and is staging the strongest recovery now.

What will happen going forward is anyone’s guess, but I really like the idea of producing something that there is a real need for in the world, something that my family and I need too!  The downsides are limited and upside potential is great.  And there is something very satisfying about working with nature and enjoying the tranquility of a farm as well.

I hope to see you and Merri again soon – maybe for a Super-learning Spanish class!

Cheers,

Charles
Editor, http://pricedingold.com

Another approach is to invest in or have a business in a peripheral part of agriculture… like the bio degradable fertilizer booster, Bio Wash, and its sister cleaner, Purely Green.

Ted Tidwell who manufactures these products recently sent me these notes…

Gary,

Some time ago we talked about Purely Green being used for solid waste treatment.  It reduced the solids by up to 50%.  It reduced solids by 70%.

However, the waste treatment people rejected this because Bio Wash it killed too many microbes that are needed
to consume the remaining waste matter.

It has possible applications around barn yards, kennels and hog farms.

On Sunday March 25, a freeze hit upstate New York.  Temperatures dipped as low as 17 F., but some areas reached lows of only 25-28 F.

On March 24, a grower BioWashed 35 acres of peaches; 20 acres of apples plus various raspberries, strawberries, black berries and cherries. Some plants were
kept as controls.

As of Wednesday, March 28, our distributor there reported that none of the BioWashed crops showed any freeze damage.

Inasmuch as diluted BioWash freezes at 26F., it will be surprising if fruit was protected below 26F.

In the area the area where his cherries are located, temperatures reached down to 17F.  As expected, the cherries froze.

They may POSSIBLY be recoverable with follow-up BioWashing. (A 2nd BioWashing recovered the leaves of a Florida tangerine tree that had frozen at 19F.)

In the area of peaches, apples and berries, temperatures remained around 26 to 27 degrees. The grower found no visible damage.

If the success continues, the grower will announce the success to other farmers and predicts that our distributor’s sales will zoom.

They will invite the local TV channel to visit and broadcast the news.

Our distributor will enjoy substantial profits while offering significant benefits to their customers. He is ordering four additional drums to meet the expected demand.

More details about freeze protection for crops, flowers and landscaping is reflected on www.FertilizerBoosters.com

Learn how to earn with Bio Wash and Purely Green through writing and seminars as well as sales in Earn Globally Online Courses.

 Ecuador Farms

The recent March 2012 Ecuador Farm Expedition Report looked at farms on the coast.  Some of these Ecuador farms had such value that one was purchased on the spot.

Here are some shots of several more of the farms viewed on this tour.

Lessons From Little Horse Creek


Welcome to Merrily Farms at Little Horse Creek.

Merri and I love the natural beauty, solitude and quite here.  Also we love how nature teaches us lessons about making our process of earning a part of a joyful lifestyle.

We are on the road migrating south for the season just like so many of our ancestors have done in generations past.  Here are some autumnal shots of the farm and a couple of lessons that the nature here has whispered in the chilly winds to me. I hope these whisperings will make your life better too.

Little Horse Creek Autumn entrance

Welcome to the farm.

little-horse-creek-barn

This old barn gave me some great insights about utility.

ecuador-florida

This was the entrance and the barn when we bought the farm (plus a half burned out house on the right). “These are all tear downs” everyone said.  We did not think so and have turned some units into a wonderful year round rental. 

The lesson is don’t judge a book by its cover.  You can often find value in things everyone else wants to throw away.  Always look for value.    

Here are some shots coming…

little-horse-creek

from the lower creek up to the to the cottage.   We did not even know we had a series of lovely water falls when we bought the farm. The land had been unoccupied for 15 years.  Right of way trimmers had chopped down big trees.  Blackberries… thorns and bramble had filled in the space… covering even the creek’s murmur and falls. What a joyful surprise when we began to clear.  

The lesson is to expect joyful surprises when you get on the right track!

The cottage is another lesson in looking for value. This was also a tear down many said.  They reduced the value of the property when we negotiated the price.  Roof was caved in … walls rotted… ten layers of old linoleum on the floor…. front porch sagging… siding missing.

Now, our redone charming cottage increases the property’s value.

landscaping and it’s changed to be an asset now.

Then we head up the road past the big rock that juts out onto the road.

That big rock provides a lesson.  Nothing big can get past it like cement trucks for example. When we built a house with 80,000 pounds of cement in the walls that caused a bit of frustration.  Yet we love the looks of that rock so we worked around it. We built a road past our house up to a neighbor’s who kindly allowed us to come through his land onto a bigger road for an entrance. 

Now everyday when we take our walk… we really enjoy this rock.  The lesson is that each of us needs to feel what gives us energy and let those feelings lead our paths.  Take what others say to be practical with a grain of salt.   No one who is practical as defined by the lifestyle merchants of Madison Avenue would live up here on this farm.

Then we reach the house meadow where…

The house has a medium range view.   That’s the one above all we have on the farm that we chose. We can head up to the higher meadows for the…

long range views.  We go there from time to time… but the lesson we learned is to be settled and immerse ourselves in the here and now, flavored just once in awhile with long term planning.   Being narrow minded shuts down creativity… but looking to far ahead too often also disconnects us from accomplishing our purpose one step at a time.  Integrating the mind and the heart… and integrating the big picture with the day to day routines and tasks helps move us along.

Such great beauty… this time of year, but…

what’s next is…

this view that is coming.

So we are enjoying our ride today to Florida and Ecuador and the sun.  This is perhaps the biggest lesson we can recall during this time of change… when so many feel despair… the sun always shines somewhere.   We look forward to sharing ideas on how to prosper during this era of change so we can all feel sunny times together… everywhere.
