Know Your Zone


Here’s a thought about investing.

Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered

Every recession creates numbers of reasonably safe pockets of opportunity.

That’s why for the last decade I have been writing about real estate opportunity in Mt. Dora Florida and Ashe county North Carolina.

In Mount Dora, I have especially seen enormous similarities.  This is a charming town sandwiched between Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.  Being the highest city in Florida, it has minimal flood risk and is one of the safest areas from hurricanes.

The big growth news is that the multi billion dollar Wekiva Parkway program that creates a ring road around Orlando has a major exit (x marks the spot) at Mt. Dora.

When complete this parkway will make Mt. Dora accessible for comuting to millions who now own homes in the more crowded and higher priced Orlando area.

Merri and I began buying houses to rent about a decade ago and we have now been selling part of that portfolio of houses.

That fact that the sales make sense to Merri and me, despite the fact I think there is still enormous growth opportunity, can help clarify the importance “doing what you love” and “knowing your zone”.

Here’s the recent history of a property we owned.

We bought a house in the Mt. Dora Country Club on Park Forest Blvd. at $140K. We  added a roof for $10K and rented the house for five years at $1,300 a month.

We sold it in 2019 for $226,000.

The buyer fixed it up and put on market last week at $334,000. It went under contract in just four days.

Did we make a mistake… or we smart knowing our zone.

Our zone is buying dirty houses we like and cleaning, painting with minimal major fix up.  That house was very out of date for the area.

The buyer who bought this house took front from this…

to this.

The living room was upgraded from this…

They fixed the kitchen from this…

The bathrooms were turned from this….

to this.

The back yard looked like this…

and became this.

The buyer definitely knew his (or her) zone… that of complete transformation.

One could think, “Look at all that profit we left behind!”

Merri and I do not think this way at all.  This big upgrade is NOT our zone.  We do what we love, looking at, finding and cleaning up residential properties.  We are not carpenters, electricians, plumbers, or decorators… as the buyers of this house obviously are.  And good at it as well.

Whatever you do… find the part that you love the most and are capable of handling without undue stress.

Remember, “Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered” so don’t worry about leaving some crumbs behind when you make an investment and take a profit.

You never go broke taking a profit.

When Merri and I look back at our real estate investments in London, in the Isle of Man, in Naples, Florida and Ecuador, we see some great profits.  But we see huge additional profits left behind as well.  If we had kept just four houses we owned and sold for millions in profit then, we would have have an extra five million or more that came after we sold.

Yet we do not regret having stayed in our zone.  First had we stuck in London, it would have been hard, if not impossible, to build the business we had in Ecuador or enjoy our years (and investments in Naples Florida) and Ecuador and Ashe County North Carolina and Mt. Dora.

We are writers and publishers who have always enjoyed writing about our global investments and travel.  That’s our first love. We love real estate too… as an investment… but in both instances… writing, publishing and real estate, we know our zone.

Turn your passion into profit. Figure out what you really love to do. Then find a zone that suits you that earns by being involved in your passion.

Surviving the Siren’s Song

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.

Mythology tells us that Sirens are beautiful, creatures, femmes fatales.  They lure us with enchanting, seductive songs into treacherous, always-shifting currents and shoals ready to rip the guts of our foundation from us.

siren

The last century of technology, from steams engines to quantum computers, is our Siren.  The song has brought us unbelievable freedom.

Yet the same technology that strips away the restraints created by time and space also provides tools for those who wish to bind us in other ways.

For example, technology used to track COVID-19 will increase government use of mass surveillance.

The nations use smartphones to track us. They  even receiving support from private tech companies, like Google and Apple, who would normally oppose such invasion of our privacy.

After all who would dare not help ease the pandemic?

The problem is, once a government gets its hand on such power, it rarely lets go.   The world will slide into permanently increased surveillance.

Although the current tracking efforts may appear entirely legitimate, many pose a risk to our rights to privacy and freedom of expression.  Imagine, big brother knowing where we are, where we have been, and who we have been in touch with, even what we have said.

Another Siren is the modern technology that allows goods to speed goods and people along in a global economy.   So to does it allow the bad to enter as we can now see so well.

The COVID-19 pandemic has proven this point!

Yet we should expect the world to get better.

We should and live and earn based on that this positive expectation.

However we should also live a lifestyle that prepares us for the bad times as well as good.

For example my family really used technology to make our businesses mobile and flexible.  At age 73, I work here in Florida reaching clients globally.  I can also work at our North Carolina farm or anywhere I have access to the internet.  I have been able to work every day right even having COVID-19.

gary scott

I can hike into the woods at our farm and be working if I should desire.

My webmaster lives thousands of miles away yet we easily run the business together.

My son, an attorney in England, was trapped in the Czech Republic when the airlines shut down.  He has been able to continue his normal work from a small rural town near Vienna.  His productivity has not been diminished at all.  It may have even improved.

My daughter who lives in England is working on a project in India.   The inability for her to travel has not stopped her.

Another daughter who runs a dance/drama/singing school for children saw her classes shut down but was quickly doing lessons for the kids via Zoom.

I explain how to live and earn this way in a comprehensive report I have written entitled “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”.

We have created a lifestyle… so if the world goes really sideways… we will survive and prosper anyway.  We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

This lifestyle is shaped by what we do, how we do it and where we live.

The COVID-19 pandemic will create innumerable new opportunities.  Many of them offer enormous income potential and they even work well (in some cases better) in disaster scenarios.

In my family’s example, we use technology to have virtual, global businesses. We use the internet.

Where we do it is from is places where we can also have a backup business that will thrive, without government interference, in troubled times.

Let me provide two simple, concrete example.  North Carolina and ginseng.  Florida and loquat.

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

Even better, one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops, that are currently unsustainable, can be grown on land in North Carolina and a couple of dozen other states that is extraordinarily cheap, yet are especially uncrowded safe and healthy.

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng we grew in our former North Carolina back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.

loquats

Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from Amazon.com show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

Learn about these specific places in our “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report”.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

Lowering taxes is vital now as the massive government spending during the COVID-19 pandemic will eventually lead to increased taxation.

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

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

This pond we developed at our farm gave us great pleasure but also helped create a safe, healthy food supply and created a tax deduction as well as it helped us develop a trout raising business.

A Bomb of an Idea


Here’s a story about the power of the word and why it can be as explosive as a nuclear bomb.

The Doomsday Clock, the symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe, was moved forward by 20 seconds to 100 seconds to zero this year.

Just 100 seconds to disaster.

wired.com

This story shows how we have lived with this threat our entire lives.

A couple of articles sent to me, “MOUNT DORA’S BIGGEST SECRET:  THE CATACOMBS” (1)  and “America’s Largest Atomic Bomb Shelter Is Hiding Beneath This Southern Small Town” (2) show how long we have suffered the worry of a nuclear holocast.

The article begins: Six feet beneath an orange grove in Mount Dora, Florida hides the largest underground atomic bomb shelter in the nation.

The bunker was once the area’s best hope for protecting the survivors of a nuclear war.

The community’s shrouded atomic bomb shelter is arguably the most intriguing aspect of Mount Dora’s past, yet many residents know nothing about it.

As many as 100 members of 25 prominent local families – doctors, lawyers, a bank president, a minister and even Mount Dora’s mayor – would strive to reach their shelter in time.

Built secretively at the height of nuclear tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States in 1961, “The Catacombs” was not only the biggest privately constructed shelter in our area, but federal officials have termed it the nation’s largest. Yet, its affluent members were far from the only residents of our towns to jump on the bomb-protection bandwagon. Homes all over the area – from Deidrich Street in Eustis to Alfred Street in Tavares to Tremain Street and Tenth Avenue in Mount Dora – still boast fallout shelters, all dug by fearful folks in the late 1950s and early 60s.

I know a little more than most about these shelters.  Our house here in Lake County has one.

Here’s a photo of the bunker built under Mt. Dora.

bomb shelter

Here’s a photo of our basement.

bomb shelter

But the power of nuclear bombs is not the point of this article.

Instead let’s look at the power of the word.

The Mt. Dora bomb shelter was built because of the power of writing.

The articles mentioned above explain: In the tri-towns of Mount Dora, Eustis and Tavares, the fear became particularly palpable after the publication in 1959 of writer Pat Frank’s nationally renowned novel “Alas, Babylon.” It is the story of one small Florida community’s struggle for survival following the nuclear annihilation of Miami, Tampa and Orlando. Frank, actually the pen name of journalist Harry Hart, lived in Mount Dora at the time he wrote the book, and his fictional setting of Fort Repose was (not coincidentally) one of a triangle of small towns not too far north of Orlando.

Locals immediately linked the novel’s locale to Mount Dora, Eustis and Tavares, and began to identify with the characters and the chaos they faced. In the story, all power and communication with the rest of the country is lost, the local doctor is beaten up by drug addicts, the police chief is murdered and the bank president, unable to cope, kills himself.

Not long after “Alas, Babylon” became a best-seller, Lake County Health Director Dr. James Hall, citrus magnate William Baker, and retired paper-manufacturer and big-game hunter Theodore Mittendorf, as well as several of his fellow members of The Mount Dora Yacht Club, approached local builder J. G. Ray about the idea of designing a group shelter for their families.

The writing (and reading) of “Alas Babylon” were the roots of the Mt. Dora area bomb shelter craze.

A benefit of writing is you can become part of the solution, not part of the problem. 

I’m not sure that the author did the area a favor (though I love our basement)!  A lot of time, energy and resources were wasted on that catacomb.  It did no one much, good.

Yet when you know how to write and self publish, you can do good.

There is so much bad news now all about events, we are powerless to change or stop.

When we can write and know how to distribute our words, we can help build a better positive community.  This is something we can actually do… from home, even in the smallest ways.

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy.  Using writing and self publishing not only creates extra income but can help develop strong community economics and unite community ties at this time when division rules.

The story is one of waste through fear.  For our lives we have lived in fear of the Doomsday Clock.  We are still here and most of our surroundings are good.   As writers we can share this positive reality.

Live Better and Be Free – 5 Global Earning Experiences

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

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

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

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

gary-scott-international-business

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

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

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

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

Then we got together.

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

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

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

 

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

If so then read on… because… Merri and I have led that lifestyle for decades and can show you how to live it too.

The key is to earn from home offices.   They are part of a micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

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

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

Caring is just one example of how to live anywhere and earn, especially now that the pandemic will change how people vacation.

gary-scott-international-business

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

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

gary-scott-international-business

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

Dozens-of-roses

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

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

gary-scott-international-business

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

These are just a few of the business experiences that can help you have the freedom to earn globally.  They are shared in our emailed correspondence course that you can now have FREE.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Whatever your passion you can learn how to earn by creating a micro business based on it.

Take fishing, for example.

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

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

gary scott

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Business people or professionals who want to add an extra profit center to their business or who want to change their business entirely will benefit.  Those who want more control over their career can profit.  Plus those who love global travel and want to turn their trips into profitable tax deductions!

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

This course is also for couples 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 an International Business.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee”.

If you are not fully satisfied in any way,  just tell us within 60 days and we’ll send you a 100% full refund with no questions asked.

Ecuador Shamans

Here I am in the deep Amazon studying with a shaman.

I have created three natural health reports based on 50 years of study with healers around the world about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Recent news about Social Security, pensions and health care shows that the US government has excessive debt today and that we as individuals need tactics to make sure, when governments, pensions and insurers weasel out of their promises, that we can take care of ourselves.

One big broken promise is Social Security and Medicare.  The most recent Social Security trustee report shows that the programs will begin to spend more than they earn within just three or four years.   The Medicare hospital-insurance trust fund, could use all its reserves by 2028.  They face insolvency over the next 20 years because Social Security runs totally out of money by 2034.

My three natural health reports help learn ways to be happier, healthier and avoid much of the Western disease management (aka healthcare) expense.

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive all three FREE as club member and save $59.85.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful Investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad. The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of numerous Model Portfolios, called Pifolio.

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

fibonacci

Learn how the Fibonacci Spiral impacts stock markets when the are 60% up or 30% down.

There are no secrets about this portfolio except that these mathematicians ignore the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $299.

There are two more reports I’ll send about the most exciting opportunities I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become an International Club member you’ll receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the past two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Silver Dip” updated in late 2018.   The report explained the exact conditions you need to make leveraged silver & gold speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.  Now with the stock market crash this report is more valid than ever.

Save $598.23… when you become a club member.

Oceans 5 Peril & Profit


People love the ocean.

They love to be on the coast but the oceans are in peril.

We can take advantage of this fact!

Ecuador-energy

Merri and I lived in Naples Florida, (two blocks north of Naples pier) for 20 years.

In the beginning this was a perfect part of small town USA.  We walked the beach every morning.

We’d be among just a few early birds.  Sometimes I could hike from our street, 11th Ave. South, to Gordon’s Pass and back (about three miles) and not see another soul.

By the time we decided to move, we could no longer stand the crowds that had moved in.   There was a line of walkers… hundreds even thousands packing the sands in the A.M.

Red tide became an issue.

Traffic rose until we had to plan our day around being able to make right hand turns.

Merri and I are always trying to get out of the path of progress, but it seems to keep following us.

A decade ago we moved to Lake county Florida, right at the base of Ocala National Forest, living on acreage surrounded by farms.

That path (or progress) is following us though.

One reason Lake County Florida  is in the path of progress is the ocean.

Historically there were four named oceans in the world, which include the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Arctic Ocean, and the Indian Ocean.  Then, sometime along the way, someone carved out part of these waters and called it the Southern Ocean.  So now we have five… oceans.

Or you can call it one big ocean that covers 71% of the earth’s surface.  Whatever name we give this water its important to our survival and it’s in peril. 

Now according to a New York Times article (1) a report based on more than 7,000 studies has been written by more than 100 international experts and represents the most extensive look to date at the effects of climate change on oceans, ice sheets, mountain snowpack and permafrost.

That NYT article says: Climate change is heating the oceans and altering their chemistry so dramatically that it is threatening seafood supplies, fueling cyclones and floods and posing profound risks to the hundreds of millions of people living along the coasts, according to a sweeping United Nations report issued Wednesday.

“The oceans are sending us so many warning signals that we need to get emissions under control,” said Hans-Otto Pörtner, a marine biologist at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany and a lead author of the report. “Ecosystems are changing, food webs are changing, fish stocks are changing, and this turmoil is affecting humans.”

Hotter ocean temperatures, combined with rising sea levels, further imperil coastal regions, the report says, worsening a phenomenon that is already contributing to storms like Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Houston two years ago.

But the oceans themselves are becoming hotter, more acidic and less oxygen-rich as a result, according to the report. If humans keep pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere at an increasing rate,marine ecosystems already facing threats from seaborne plastic waste, unsustainable fishing practices and other man-made stresses will be further strained.

Let’s be clear… the oceans and earth are not in trouble.   Even if there’s a volcanic apocalypse, wandering star, gamma-ray burst, flipped magnetic field, or an asteroid collision, earth is likely to be here for another 3 to 7 billion years.

Even the big risks to life on earth are not likely for hundreds of thousands, millions or billions of years.   That’s time enough for NASA, Space X and its successors to find humanity a new home and ways to get there.

Who knows 10,000 or 50,000 or a million years from now the climate and oceans might have been hotter, then older and be right back to the current norm.

No one knows, so why worry!

What we do know is that mankind’s current social economic order is in the mire for now.  Warmer or colder temperatures changes coastlines, water distribution, and how we live, travel, transport goods and produce food.

We can see this in the news every day.  Take for example these few articles.

Global Warming Means Less Milk If Dairies Can’t Keep Cows Cool (2).  Rising temperatures pose one more problem for an already stressed industry.

U.S. farmers prep for global warming to threaten food production (3).   A growing number of America’s farmers are quietly preparing for a future in which rising global temperatures threaten their … These winter plants, like rye or barley, secure the soil and keep important nutrients from being washed away.

A radical decrease in greenhouse gas emissions is needed if farmers are to have time to prepare for major changes in rainfall that could decimate crops, researchers said in a report released on Monday. (4)

These shifts in economic patterns are causing billions of dollars of loss in real estate and also creates profit potential.

One of the greatest migrations in human history has been of people moving to US Coastal areas.

Today one in six Americans live in a county that borders the Gulf of Mexico or an ocean.

As sea levels rise, the cost of living, on or near the coast, will rise as well.   Taxes and insurance costs are bound to create a counter migration away from the coast.

Merri’s and my strategy to profit from these facts has been to buy houses that appeal to us which have a reasonable potential to return a decent income (and likely appreciate) in Lake County Florida around the city of Mount Dora.

Mount Dora is Florida’s highest city, situated on a plateau 184 feet above sea level and is an area considered to be the safest from hurricanes.

It is part of the  but is known for its small town charm as the city prohibits franchises in the downtown area and has many festivals, boutique shops and antique stores, museums, fine art galleries and monthly art strolls.

The town has a population of about 15,000 people, is part of the Orlando-Kissimmee, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area and used to be an hours drive from Orlando.

The commuting time from Mt. Dora to Orlando is changing radically, due to the 1.7 billion dollar Wekiva expansion.  The road (literally paved with gold as far as I am concerned) connects Mt. Dora to Interstate 4.  The expansion started before the great recession, just kept going, and has never slowed down since it began.

Now the Wekiva  it has reached Mt. Dora.

mt dora

X marks Mt. Dora on the Wekiva Parkway.

An article at Floridatrend.com (5)  says: Work on the $1.7-billion Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) is under way northwest of Orlando, a milestone in developing the final link of a beltway around the urban core. Designed to take pressure off Interstate 4 through downtown, where commuters, tourists and truckers slow to a crawl during rush hour, the Wekiva portion of the toll road will span 25 miles. The highway also will draw at least some cars and trucks away from State Road 46, U.S. Highway 441 and smaller roads congested with commuter traffic between north Orange, Seminole and Lake.

Sanford, Mount Dora and Apopka will benefit from completion of the Wekiva section of the parkway, which will link the three faster growing cities in Seminole, Lake and Orange counties.

We watched an equivalent highway phenomenon take place three decades ago in Naples Florida.  Naples was a sleepy fishing village and winter resort that turned into an over priced home for the uber rich when I-75 was completed tying Naples to Tampa, Miami and Dade-Broward.

Our investments in Naples treated us well, and though I doubt that Mt. Dora prices will soar as they did in Naples, I do expect real estate in this area to see significant additional gains.  Prices of housing in the area are still very low compared to the cities around it.

The entire Wekiva Parkway is scheduled to be open to traffic in 2022.  This leaves three to four years of great opportunity.  Already billions of dollars of new housing, shopping centers, stores, hospitals and infrastructure have boomed up along the portions of the parkway that are done.

If you would like to know more about Mt Dora real estate send me a note at gary@garyascott.com with the words “Mt. Dora” in the subject line.  I’ll put you in touch with the broker who has helped me buy and sell almost two dozen properties in this area.

You can also learn more about Mt. Dora real estate in my report “Live Anywhere, Earn Everywhere” that’s described below.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Profit from post COVID-19 trends.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in my report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”,  you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

Dining room tables we worked from (and we also sold the tables for a profit).

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

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring. 

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  Thes profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng we grew in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.

loquats

Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from Amazon.com show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.

loquat

Loquat leaf tea has become really important during the pandemic due to its respiratory strengthening qualities.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

There are specific places where property is especially inexpensive, now because previous owners do not know about the special qualities created by the pandemic.

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

Our Florida greenhouse.

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

This pond we created at our farm brought us pleasure but also helped create a safe, healthy food supply, extra income and a tax deduction as well.

The Secret 1.7 Billion Trickledown


One of Merri’s and my secret real estate investing weapons has been the fact that we are both so common.

Merri’s formative years were in Georgia and mine in Oregon.  There were many differences between these states.  Yet as baby boomers we have much in common.  We saw the same shows on TV, Howdy Doody, the Cisco Kid, Ed Sullivan, Gunsmoke. Roy Rogers, etc.  We read the same books in school such as the Bridge over San Luis Rey, the Red Badge of Courage.  We saw the same movies, heard the same radio, listened to the same Golden Oldies, read the same news, the same magazines, so it is not surprising that our tastes are pretty much the same.

The fact that we are NOT special gives us the ability to understand the desires of 60 million baby boomers who have that same background. This gives us confidence.  If we like a property, many others will like it as well.  This gives us good judgement (from an investing point of view) when it comes to appeal.

Our strategy is to buy houses that appeal to us which have a reasonable potential to return a decent income (and likely appreciate) in the Mount Dora area.

We started investing in Mt. Dora a decade ago expecting that the area would have a bubble.  Prices have risen, but we have many reasons to believe the best is yet to come.

One reason for our expectations is that the fastest growing metro area in America (The Villages) is nearby (1).

In addition, Orlando, also nearby, was ninth-fastest growing city in the USA.  Orlando has grown at a rate over 20 percent since 2010, putting the Orlando area at No. 22 in population among U.S. metros.

A recent article “Central Florida Cities Among Fastest Growing in US” (2) points out “Cities along Florida’s Interstate 4 corridor were some of the fastest growing in the United States last year.”

Midway between Tampa and Orlando, the Lakeland-Winter Haven area had the nation’s fourth-largest growth rate at 3.2 percent. All are in the Interstate 4 corridor.

Here’s the secret about Mt. Dora we have been watching for a decade, the 1.7 billion dollar Wekiva expansion.  The road (literally paved with gold as far as I am concerned) connects Mt. Dora to Interstate 4. The expansion started before the great recession, just kept on going, and have never slowed down since it began.

Now it has reached Mt. Dora.

That’s why I wrote my report “Live Anywhere, Earn Everywhere” that’s described below.

Secrets of Theravada – Automaticity


Secrets of Thervada can be unveiled with Automaticity in learning, investing and business.

You’ll want to know about Automaticity and how it can make your life better.

One reason is that we have fun in…

Spanish-lesson-images

our Super Thinking Plus Spanish course and to use automaticity.   This is not just because we like what we are doing.

Fun is one of nature’s greatest teachers and it is part of the curriculum because fun helps the learning process.  See how this fact can help you below.

Do you get a bit creeped out trying to read the newspaper or watch the news on TV?   Here we are living in the richest, most technologically advanced time of humanity’s recorded history and all the media can focus on is doom and gloom. I guess we can’t totally blame the media. Bad news sells.  I once saw a publisher try a publication entitled “The Good News”.  Wow, how horrible to become a flop based on good.

This means that we probably won’t change the press.   They follow the money.  Congress too.  There they were…  again with a chance to fix the debt problem. Instead pushing the problem so it may grow more acute.

Guess who that leaves to change and prosper from change?

Just ourselves.  We cannot fix the press. We cannot fix the government, or democracy, or the military or the economy, or human nature.  We can make ourselves better…  have a positive impact in the big picture and gain success, joy and prosperity in the process.

One way we can do this is through the concept of Theravada.

Theravada is a Sanskrit word that means “the Teaching of the Elders”.

Theravada is based on “Teaching from  Analysis”.   This philosophy says that knowing must come from the aspirant’s experience, critical investigation, and reasoning instead of by blind faith.

This fits well with the many messages at this site that proclaim the era of the guru is dead.

We are in the era of Theravada.   As mankind advanced through numerous industrial and technological eras, he also moved through eras of mindsets that ruled religion as well as commerce.

The first era was the era of the church. During this time, the church stood between mankind and God. The way to heaven was only through the Church. If one sinned, the Church could intervene and absolve the mistake. If Church dictates were followed, heaven was guaranteed.

This was also the era of the banker. He too stood between the investor and the investment. The church had all the knowledge-the bankers had all the knowledge.

Then as we evolved and gained access to more knowledge we shifted to the era of the guru.   This guru could be a religious leader or a political or business guru… a President or CEO for example.  Those who followed a guru’s advice could be put directly in touch with God.  Heaven on earth was promised.  But each soul had to take more responsibility as well. Each had to follow the guru’s path and if he erred, he could not rely on the guru to absolve him of any bad karma gained. Each had to suffer the burden of their mistakes.

This was also the era of the mutual fund guru. Instead of investing in banks for a guaranteed return, investors followed the mutual fund guru directly into shares. Greater responsibility for this type investing brought greater financial reward. Investors and those seeking enlightenment knew more, but the guru was still the master.

Today technology lets us know all the bad news (and gives us access to the positive stuff as well).

We have the same access to data as the guru.   Masters they should be no more. Mentors, directors, guiding lights perhaps, but not the unequivocal source of all knowledge.  A sounding board, yes. Stimulator of ideas, we hope.   The final word – hopefully never.

Theravada  is a key to never ending wealth. Set your own financial and service standards. You will never be happy with your financial affairs until you do.  If others dictate how you earn and spend no amount of money can be enough. There is always more to spend than you’ll have. Only when you set goals true to yourself and stick with them can you be at ease with your material lot.

Ease is nature’s blessing when we are where we should be.  Perhaps the ease we feel in the way we serve should be how we measure our success.

Theravada does not mean we should abandon teachers.   We should integrate what they teach with what we know instead.

This tradition emphasizes using advice from wise teachers and integrating their advice with one’s  own experiences. The two tests by which practices should be judged are the teacher’s evaluation and one’s experience.  We should integrate what we learn though experience and what we learn though our teachers.

We did not understand fully how we have been using Theravada in our Super Thinking plus Spanish course  until one of the delegates, an educator, at our most recent course  explained Automaticity.

Automaticity is knowing.  When asked a question, if you do not have to think… if the response is in less than a second… you have automaticity.

This is one reason we can manage to have delegates speaking and writing Spanish in just one day.  English (and French and Italian) speakers already have a huge amount of Spanish automaticity.  They just do not know it, so instead of having delegates memorize Spanish… we help them to recall what they already automatically know about Spanish instead.

There are other unusual steps we take in the Super Thinking course.

One delegate wrote: No doubt you are both very tired after a pellmell four days, but you deserve feedback a.s.a.p.  It was a great pleasure to discover that the Gary and Merri I have been meeting online for over a year are the very human beings running this show. You are exactly who you show yourselves to be–a rarity in this world of deception. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your honesty, forthrightness, service, flexibility and creativity (there’s that positive languaging from the Virtues Project–isn’t it great?).

It seems the FM Plus (Frequency Modulation) moved ahead a lot this weekend with an almighty tune-up which will enable it to roar ahead to wherever it needs to go. It was a pleasure to be part of this group. What wonderful friends we all made! This is what life is all about.  Tailwags, E.

Actually we were not tired after the course but the above educator helped us by explaining the automaticity!

Part of the curriculum are relaxation techniques that help integrate brain waves, plus also refresh and energize.  We are still going strong after four days!

Super Thinking Goes Way Beyond Spanish.

Many delegates come to the course to learn Spanish but discover all types of other benefits.

Another delegates wrote: First, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the super learning Spanish class.  I am still working as a speech therapist even though I retired for the 2nd time in Oct.  There is such a need that I got talked into working until June and started after the Spanish class in a school district closer to my new address.  Anyway, I just received some of the music I ordered and cant wait to start with the children after Thanksgiving. It will be interesting to see how they respond and improve.

We have a great success in this course because delegates begin creating sentences… spoken and written from the very first day.   This is vital.   What you memorize you forget. What you create from automaticity is already yours and is always with you.

Some delegates believe this this is hard to do… but it is not and we prove it.   Once we unlock their automaticity every student is surprised (and delighted) at how fast and fun it is to catch on.

Here is one sentence a student created after one day.

Here is a sentence created after four days:

Another delegate wrote:  Waiting for my flight home, I was able to read the words from lessons 1,2, and 3 in Espanol, and with about 90% accuracy translate into English. Quite an accomplishment and, not that you need it, proof of the efficacy of Super Learning and Spanish. I will continue to play with this, watch Oppenheimer talk show and Commisario Rex! on the Spanish PBS station Sundays. I also put in for vacation time and did a tentative airline schedule so I can attend Spanish in Mt Dora in January 2012. As soon as I get vacation time approved, I’ll solidify my plans.  Warmest regards,

Another shared: Dearest Merri and Gary,  Just got back to Milwaukee and before the busy duties start, I wanted to send you another huge thank you for the lovely weekend of Spanish.    My friend and I are determined to practice and keep up with our studies.  And my husband will enjoy as well.  Thanks again for making it fun, informative and full of new friends.    Many blessings on your work.  Hope to see you again soon.

Another sent this note:  Thank you so much for everything. The course and sessions were incredible.

I have been relaying to my sister how awesome this has been.  My brother-in-law is currently in Quito and my sister is planning to go to Ecuador a week after I return to Vancouver. She has decided at my urging to become a member of Ecuador Living. I am pleased since she may consider Super Thinking Spanish in the future.

Even those who had been Surrounded by Spanish Gained Enormously

Thank you Thank Thank you … Gracias, Gracias, Gracias …

Dear Merri and Gary, we cannot thank you enough for introducing us to this marvelous, easy and fun way of learning Spanish. We have struggled for ten years in Mexico feeling overwhelmed and inadequate in the memorization of the hundreds of verbs and the many conjugations of them that all our tutors told us we needed to do. Your course has opened up a whole new world of pleasure and ease for us as we use our new knowledge of Spanish. In only 4 days our Spanish speaking now feels effortless and fun! We have been speaking in Spanish to each other since we left your course!

We will return to become teachers because of our desire to prevent others from suffering through the same educational fallacies that we did. It is much better to empower people as your method of teaching definitely does…. so count us in!  Con gran gratitud, tus nuevos amigos.

How to Use Automaticity in Daily Life

One reason for this success is because we help delegates incorporate automaticity in 4005 Spanish words they already know.  See more on those words below.

First, let’s look at seven thoughts from the Dalai Lama ways that we can connect to what we already know in automaticity so we process new data we gain with greater success.
1.    Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

2.    When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

3.    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

4.    Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

5.    Spend some time alone every day.

6.    Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.

7.    Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

These seven thoughts can help you integrate the flood of data we are subjected to in the modern fast paced world.  You have incredible knowledge already that automatically process most challenges with automaticity.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

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

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

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

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

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

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

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

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

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

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

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

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

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

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

Here is the proof.

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

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

See examples of the words you already know below.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

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

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

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

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

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

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gold in Mt. Dora & Lake County


There is gold in and around Mt. Dora and Lake County.

citrus-

Here I am in our orange grove.

Here are three more reasons why you may want to join us in Lake County… to learn about opportunity in gold… the green gold of citrus.

Simply put… Florida real estate prices are down… food prices are rising and as you’ll see below citrus groves present special opportunity now.

This site has promoted the idea of investing in agriculture for more than a decade so when Merri and I started investing back in Florida we invested in Lake County, which is surrounded by these fast growing strong farming communities.

One benefit we especially liked is Lake County’s agricultural economy.  A 2011 USA Today article entitled “Economic expert sees trouble ahead; Housing market municipalities may be in for a rough ride” by Maria Bartiromo shows how agricultural land has already become increasingly profitable.  Here is an excerpt from this article: Meredith Whitney seems to be softening her concerns about a looming muni meltdown as politicians across the country address fiscal challenges more aggressively.  She says a new area of strength is emerging in one part of the country where debt was not an issue: the agricultural belt.

There are parts of the economy that are doing very well. As a food producer, the economy in the middle part of the country’s doing well.

The ag-rich states are going to be Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Texas to a certain extent because it is a massive beneficiary of the price of oil.  It’s the central part of the U.S., you can almost draw a triangle around it, what I call the emerging markets of the U.S. It speaks to how dynamic and strong the U.S. economy really is. It’s just shifting. The U.S. is a composite of many different economies.

Indeed and Florida is a composite of many different economies as well.

florida agriculture

Map from plant medicine program at University of Florida (linked below). This map shows Lake County’s economy enriched by citrus, plants, grapes and vegetables.

The citrus economy in central Florida has a special problem that may create even more opportunity.
Excerpts from a 2011 NPR.org article entitled “Abandoned Citrus Groves Produce Problems In Fla.” by Greg Allen show the second reasons why there is special opportunity in citrus now. Here is an excerpt: Florida is a national leader in orange and grapefruit production.

But in the past few years, landowners have given up on more than 100,000 acres of citrus groves, which have become a threat to producers of the state’s signature crop.

The abandoned groves are breeding grounds for pests and diseases.

Dying Citrus Groves

Indian River, on Florida’s Atlantic coast, is known for its world-class grapefruits, oranges and tangelos. This time of year, many trees are still heavy with fruit.  But there are also many groves that aren’t doing so well.

Citrus growers have always had to fight disease. But in recent years, here in Florida, it has seemed that disease is getting the upper hand. Most recently, two diseases — canker and citrus greening — have been very difficult to control, requiring more care and nearly constant spraying.

Those diseases helped push many producers out of citrus. But Christine Kelly-Begazo says there’s another compelling factor: falling land prices.

Post-Housing Boom

Kelly-Begazo is an agriculture extension agent with the University of Florida in Indian River County. She says during the housing boom, speculators paid top dollar for citrus groves.

“Now, if you bought acreage at that time speculating that you were going to be able to make some money off of agriculture or development  or whatever, and the development boom busted, there’s no incentive now,” she says. “And that acreage is actually costing you money now. So they’ve abandoned the groves, but they’re not building on them either.”
Citrus producers in Indian River have begun a program to bulldoze and burn trees in abandoned groves. But it’s costly and depends on the cooperation of sometimes absentee owners.

This is the latest of many challenges for an industry that has long grown one of Florida’s most lucrative crops.

Consider this. Most investors think Florida real estate is in trouble. It is… some of it.  Yet this broad paint brush thinking masks over the fact that ag rich areas have extra potential. Ag economies are growing rich and parts of Florida are very different… because they are mainly agricultural.  Some parts of Florida have abundant water… great agricultural potential and offer extra opportunity because developers who planned to shift ag land to residential property cannot now do so.

I followed my own advice and invested in citrus, but in a special way… taking on a troubled grove.
Many of you know that we always look for value and in real estate especially we look for fixer uppers.  We took the same approach to citrus because we also knew about Bio Wash.

About a third of the trees in the grove we purchased had root rot. The needed to be replaced.

We had to call in big machines like… this

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

business-ideas

looks like this.

business-ideas

That’s farming for you!

You can see our home is surrounded by citrus groves and that our grove (inside the tan circle) could appear to look pretty shot.

Yet we are excited because…

business-ideas

we just sprayed the 1000+ remaining trees…

business-ideas

with…

business-ideas

Bio Wash.

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

Our hunch was correct.  The year before we bought the grove all 1,500 trees produced 1801 boxes of oranges.

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

With 500 fewer trees, the grove produced 2,484 boxes of oranges in our first year.

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

Our  grove  manager  is  one  of  the largest in Florida.  Farmers are conservative so our dinky grove will have to do more than this to make them look at this seriously.

So we asked them to spray with Bio Wash twice in 2011-2012. We did and the harvest is in with 3,394 boxes though we still only have 2/3rd as many producing trees as 2009-2010.  Production is up from one box a tree in 2009-2010 to 2.83 boxes this year.  With strong citrus prices, I expect to have tripled the grove while making it more environmentally friendly and perhaps letting the big boys in this business at least take a glance.

This has also made the grove extremely profitable.

I have been reading some great books about citrus and one added benefit is the…

citrus

food.  We have our own… Naval… Hamlin, Tangelo, Tangerine, Lemon, Lime as well as white and ruby red grapefruit. Chef Allen Susser gave us some great recipes.

At our courses when delegates visit we load them up with fresh squeezed juice… plus…

these grilled grapefruit just out of our oven delicious… plus imagine

tangerine and orange fruit soup!  We squeeze the citrus right off the trees.

Finally the perfume of the orange blossom (starting just now) is overwhelmingly wonderful!

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Profit from post COVID-19 trends.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in my report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”,  you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

Dining room tables we worked from (and we also sold the tables for a profit).

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

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring. 

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  Thes profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng we grew in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.

loquats

Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from Amazon.com show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.

loquat

Loquat leaf tea has become really important during the pandemic due to its respiratory strengthening qualities.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

There are specific places where property is especially inexpensive, now because previous owners do not know about the special qualities created by the pandemic.

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

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

This pond we created at our farm brought us pleasure but also helped create a safe, healthy food supply, extra income and a tax deduction as well.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

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

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

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

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

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

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

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

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

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

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

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

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

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

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

Here is the proof.

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

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

See examples of the words you already know below.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

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

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

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

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

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

The ONLINE course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Smalltown USA Fixer Upper


My hobby, a profitable one, has been to fix up and sell many fixer uppers in Smalltown USA and all over the world.

This, for some, is a great way to earn and live in a very tax protected way.

florida-fixer-upper

See this interesting Mt. Dora fixer upper opportunity below.

Merri and I are currently redoing a big, old house near Mt. Dora,  Florida or the one above might interest us… but we stick to one of these projects at a time… so I’ll share details of this bigger fixer upper in a minute.

First here is the house we are redoing now.

small-town-usa

This is the latest of many. I have fixed up and sold several old places in England.  Here is one, a manor house named Forwood near Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire.

small-town-USA

Construction there began in the 1500s and ran into the Victorian area.

Then Merri and I redid a 100 year old house in Naples, Florida…. one of the first ten built there.

smalltown-usa

We have fixed up several old Blue Ridge farm houses also. Here is one that…

small-town-usa

emerged from this.
smalltown-usa

Plus we renovated a 180 year old colonial hotel in…

ecuador-fixer-upper

Cotacachi, Ecuador.

ecuador-hotel

Plus this wreck of an office building… inside and…

out became…

ecuador-fixer-upper

three rental apartments. Here is the top floor studio unit.

ecaudor-fixer-upper

Here is what it looks like outside now.

ecaudor-fixer-upper

These apartments by the way are for sale. See condos for sale.

Merri and I love new ventures and bringing old things back into service… old houses. ancient knowledge about better living… even old hotels to live better in.   This is fun to us… enormously satisfying, great for the environment and the process has treated us very well financially.

On top of this, the US government in its infinite wisdom makes this process, if the fixer uppers are your residence, tax protected.

I have told each of my children… if they love the idea… the most tax efficient way to live is to buy an old house… live in it and fix it. then sell it after two years.  Capital gains (up to $250,000) on your residence is tax free.  Where else can you earn $125,000 a year and not owe a penny of income or capital gains tax?

Some of our children have done well with this advice.

Fixer uppers offer five features I love in business… fun… satisfaction… environmental soundness… profits and tax protection.

So here is a brochure I have scanned of an excellent fixer upper for sale in Mt. Dora Florida… a nice part of Smalltown USA.

You can get details of this property from the broker we used to buy our Florida real estate…. Shirley Peacock at shpeacock@comcast.net

If you love fixing up… there are incredible values on the real estate market now. It is difficult to sell new homes in good shape… much less places with problems.  You get extra low prices and yet can increase value dramatically with your energy and a can of paint!  Few outlays bring as much return on investment as a small… a few bucks a gallon… investment in Sherwin Williams, Behr or Valspar.

A variation in the theme is to do as we have done in Ecuador. Buy an old hotel or B&B… live in it… fix it up and rent.  You have some tax to pay then… but  not that much.  See a great new house for sale in Crucita Ecuador here.

We’ll have an Ashe county real estate broker at our June course so those interested can learn about Small Town USA real estate in the Blue Ridge.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

The core model portfolio we teach in the PI Course rarely changes, but is highly diversified in thousands of shares around the world… so there is higher long term profits, less stress and greater safety.

The portfolio consists of 19 country ETFs.  During the four years since we created the Purposeful Investing Course and set up a $40,000 real time portfolio at Motif Brokers, we have held the same 19 shares and have only traded three times.

The portfolio started with $40,000 and has risen to $53,591 ($49,015 in shares and the balance in accumulated cash).

The portfolio did really well from 2015 to 2018, better than the DJI Index.  Then as the US dollar grew in strength it fell behind.

The chart below shows the actual results of thos portfolio compared with the S&P 500.

This good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around investing models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares 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.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares 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.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, 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 spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  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.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Spain, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of theseall good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in all the shares of the MSCI Index in each good value market reduces long term risk.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

What you get when you subscribe to Pi.

You immediately receive a 120 page basic training course that teaches the Pi Strategy.   You learn all the Pi strategies, what they are, how to use them and what each can do for you, your lifestyle and investing.

You also begin receiving regular emailed Pifiolio updates and online access to all the Pifolio updates of the last four years.  Each update examines the current activity in a Pifolio, how it is changing, why and how the changes might help your investing or not.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Silver Dip” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and “Silver Dip” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Silver Dip” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

You also learn from the Value Investing Seminar, our premier course, that we have been conducting for over 30 years.  Tens of thousands of delegates have paid up to $999 to attend.  Now you can join the seminar online FREE in this special offer.

Ecuador Unemployment & Retirement Benefits


Ecuador Unemployment & Retirement Benefits

Ecuador unemployment and retirement benefits that we’ll gain  in 2010 go way beyond cash.

Ecuador can help many who are unemployed or ready to retire. However Ecuador goes beyond unemployment and retirement. Ecuador offers a benefit for anyone about to become 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77 or 84.

By now you have probably read about the high US unemployment figures released last week. The official jobless rate — 10.2 percent in October, was up from 9.8 percent in September.  Yet these numbers are worse than that.

An excerpt from the New york Times article “Broader Measure of Unemployment Stands at 17.5%” by  David  Leonhardt explains:   For all the pain caused by the Great Recession, the job market still was not in as bad shape as it had been during the depths of the early 1980s recession — until now.

With the release of the jobs report on Friday, the broadest measure of unemployment and underemployment tracked by the Labor Department has reached its highest level in decades. If statistics went back so far, the measure would almost certainly be at its highest level since the Great Depression.

In all, more than one out of every six workers — 17.5 percent — were unemployed or underemployed in October. The previous recorded high was 17.1 percent, in December 1982.

Ecuador offers an advantage for those who have become under or unemployed who have some reserves (and those ready to retire who are worried about having enough income) because the cost of living is so low.

You can still buy a house for $30,000 or $40,000. You can still live a good life on $1,000 a month.  Plus the weather is usually good!

There are many who are better off to move quickly before they squander their savings… just meeting the bills.

Yet Ecuador offers much more to more people than just those without a job or ready to retire.

I have been thinking about retirement and low cost living a lot because there is a tradition shared by the shamans in the Andes that life evolves in seven year cycles. Many philosophies and religions recognize the importance of seven year cycles… hence the Bar Mitzvah… Leviticus 25:1-55.    The majority in most nations is age 21.  I could go on.

This seven year cycle appears to represent a natural rhythm in human lives. When we move in tune with our natural rhythms we feel good and tend to progress. When we oppose our nature we often stall.   Because there is such a great influence in Ecuador from the ancient, indigenous wisdom it seems easier to slip into a natural flow.

In Ecuador we are not bombarded daily with how Kelloggs Cocoa Krisps help our children’s immune systems or how Swine fly vaccine shots affect our lives. When we leave all this type of noise behind we can start to get back in touch with reality.

I just turned 63, a time when many consider retirement.  63 years is the end of the first nine seven year cycles.  This has been a time of seven year reflection so I decided to look back at this site and see what was going on seven years ago.

I sometimes surprise myself… maybe too predictable.

Seven years ago the messages posted at this site in November 2002 were about “seven year cycles” in a 2002 articles International Investment are Thoughts and a follow up about this  at International Investment Thought. www.garyascott.com/2006/11/28/216.html

I was probably, at age 56… thinking then about the seven year cycles as well.

So much that seemed really strange at the time… like buying a 180 year old hotel in Ecuador (neither Merri or I had even a minute of hotel management experience) or had we ever considered or even imagined having a hotel.

This does not mean we are ignoring Ecuador.  In fact we are expanding our Ecuador experience… a lot… as well. We have added  three new real estate tour destinations and are conducting at least 24 more tours than we offered last year.

In the last seven years, Cotacachi was our spot… a bit of heaven, like Mt. Dora, that most of the  world had missed… clean… peaceful… organized and offering incredible value. The world has caught on to Cotacachi now and we are really busy there… so much so that  we have a problem. Our wonderful colonial inn is too small for our courses.  Last year someone was almost always mad at us because we could not accommodate them at Meson.  By adding many more tours there is a chance that though our subscriptions have doubled this  year, we’ll keep the numbers per tour down a bit.

We have added Quito, Mindo and Cuenca real estate tours because we want to help you to experience ALL of the beauty and joys of Ecuador!

More importantly, the biggest benefit you gain goes beyond cash.   We’ll share more about quantum wealth because as we expand outwards there must be an equal or greater inner expansion.  Thus we have added new sessions Quantum Intelligence, Quantum Health and Quantum, Everlasting Wealth.

Money without knowledge is soon lost.  The maxim is “a fool and his money are soon parted”.   This is why inner expansion equals or surpasses outer expansion in importance.   Many years ago I was puzzled. I was living in London and observed what happened to an English family who won the lottery. They received several million pounds.  They were a typical… pretty well adjusted, financially solvent, comfortable, middle class family.

Within a short time the husband and wife were divorced, estranged from their children and bankrupt!

Money is energy and a sudden spurt of extra money, is like sticking your finger in a light socket, if you are not prepared.

I promise this is important!  For 41 years I have observed hundreds of thousands of readers dealing with business and investing.  I have watched how  more readers were diminished, instead of enhanced, by sudden spurts of financial success.

Money is not wealth if the outer material expansion is not accompanied by matching inner growth and understanding.

The benefit you gain are extra one day Quantum Wealth sessions added to our International Investment & Business courses at no extra cost.   The extra day is our tithe to you… our thanks for sharing the last seven years with us.

The Quantum Wealth sessions share ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the mind, memory, recall, retention and decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness.  Quantum Wealth changes the way a person thinks and learns forever and can help lead to inner growth.

You gain the benefit of our seminars and tours in Smalltown USA and Ecuador. You can choose almost every month join one, two, three, four or five seminars and tours in the US and Ecuador.

Another Ecuador benefit you gain is our multi tour discounts.

We have maintained our 2009 prices for our upcoming International Investment & Business seminars and Super Thinking plus Spanish seminars remain at $749 and $999 for a couple.  Our single  Ecuador export and Ecuador real estate fees are $499 or $749 for a couple.
