Why We Can Help You Earn This Year


Yesterday’s message looked at how to use small to make an income that’s large.

Here’s why we can help you earn as much as $11, 835 a month with our SNAP course.

Merri and I have extensive experience to share.

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

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

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

She enjoyed putting together travel stories and was invited to many places and worked there including Haiti, St.Kitts and many other exotic Caribbean ventures and to the record-breaking opening tour of the “Treasures of  Tutankhamun”.

Her ventures through the years in Haiti working with the Mellon family who had created for all of those with  leprosy changed her life forever.  She had many experiences there and wrote articles and encouraged the lepers to utilize their artistic talents through weaving and painting.

Even today, when I ask her about that period of her life (onstage or off), she always breaks into tears remembering the suffering of all those people.

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

Note to Merri from John D. MacDonald refusing an interview.  Due to her persistence, he relented.

I, on the other, hand have been writing about ways to Live Anywhere and Earn everywhere since 1968.  My full bio is here.

The third contributor to our SNAP course is our webmaster, David Cross.

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

He was also Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD.  David worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and over an 8-year period helped to propel Agora’s online revenues to over $300 Million in 2009 until he came to work with Merri and me full time.

We started with a proven business model.

Small niche magazine publishers Dave and Sherry Johnson attended one of our Super Thinking courses.   They were publishing  small niche magazines in North Carolina when they enrolled for our course.

When I heard their story and read their magazine I let no moss gather beneath my feet and began working with them to create ways to help you publish your own SNAP magazine… profitably… immediately… in just a month or two.

The Johnson’s SNAP business earned them an excellent income and created enormous freedom.

They proved the model to me when they fell in love with Ecuador, their move there was supported by a new SNAP magazine when they became involved in creating Cuenca Expat Life.  This magazine went on to become Ecuador’s largest English-Language print publications.

I have incorporated a “SNAP Earnings” section in our Self Publishing Course “Self Fulfilled-How to be a Self Publisher”.  The “SNAP Earnings” section shows how to create income with a Small Niche Area publication.

This combination of a proven business model enhanced by Merri’s, Davids and my experience creates a powerful income producing tool.

There is capital gain potential as well!

The major focus of this report looks at how to earn a good income, but  SNAP publications can also create huge capital gains.

In the case of Gulfshore Life, when the cost of Naples real estate exploded into the stratosphere, this magazine sold to Curtco, publisher  of Robb Report and several other luxury niche magazines, for a strong eight figure price.  I have been told $23 million though I have not been able to confirm this price.

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

Dennis’s beginnings were modest.  His grandparents raised him in a house with no electricity or indoor bathroom.  He left school at 15 to work as a gravedigger, store-window dresser, sign painter and blues drummer before getting a job as at the small magazine, Oz.

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

That was a really healthy capital gain!

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

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

What are the odds of getting this rich?

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

Though it is unlikely that it is possible to earn this type of capital gains with a small niche publishing business, the chances of a solid six figure income are good.

I mention the capital gains potential because the possibility does exist.

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

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

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

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

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

We have combined all these experiences into a 31 step checklist that can help you publish your own small niche publication that creates profit through writing and publishing.

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

Our course is designed to show you how to earn!

However, let me make two extremely important points clear.

First, the key to success will depend on your effort.  Your dedication to your local idea and especially your ability (or an associate) to sell advertising will determine your success.  The small nice magazine business will succeed or fail based on sales training and support.  No matter how good the editorial, chances are success will require that someone meet with local businesses and ask for their advertising support.

Earn $23,670 a month.

You can earn even more income by building a SNAP publication and then creating an affiliated events business.

The Self Publishing course “Self Fulfilled How to Write to Sell” includes how to use the SNAP system.

We have a complimentary course “Event-Full” that teaches how to have an events, seminar, exhibition, tour type business.

Ordering both these courses normally would cost $649.  Many thousands have paid this price.

Both of these courses are included FREE in a membership to the International Club.

Membership brings much more.

Club members start by receiving seven workshops and courses on how earn anywhere and everywhere with an at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free.  These courses and reports are:

  • The course “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Self Publish & SNAP”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

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.

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.

Club members also receive Pi and the $29.95 report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” and the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip 2017” FREE.

Why SNAP Offers Potential Income


Yesterday’s message looked at two ways to earn $11, 835 a month using Small Area Niche Publishing SNAP.

Here’s why SNAP publishing offers such great potential.

Sam Walton… or is it Warren Buffet?  SNAP publishing is based on three cherished beliefs that two of the wealthiest people in the world, Sam Walton and Warren Buffet, shared.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cherished Belief #2:  Community Orientation.

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

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

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

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

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

From this vision WalMart remains committed not just to expanding the businesses but to improving the communities.

You can enjoy all these benefits through SNAP Publishing because small communities can be places, ideas or ideas within places.

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

Cherished Belief #3:  Seek Good Value.

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

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

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

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

We have never seen this need for a sense of community as we do know because community creates trust.  As the world has expanded on big is better, the public has lost trust.  We no longer trust big business, big government, big hospitals, big banks, etc.  Yet publications offer nothing if they do not have the reader’s trust.  Internet publishing on the big scale has reduced trust.  Anyone can say anything on the internet and thus internet information is highly suspect.  Publishers who use a small niche to create trust have an advantage.

To begin this introduction let me add one more point and outline the value of what I am about to offer.  A SNAP publication may eventually require $5,000, $10,000 or even $15,000 in start up costs but can make up to $11,835 a month… or more.  That’s value… plain and simple.

Earn $23,670 a month.

You can earn this type of income by building a SNAP publication and combining it with an affiliated events business.

The Self Publishing course “Self Fulfilled:  How to Write to Sell” includes how to use the SNAP system.  The “Event-Full” course teaches how to have an events business.

Two $11,835 a Month Income Ideas


Income idea #1: Earn $11,835 a month with Small Niche Area Publishing, (SNAP).

Small Niche Area Publishing is big because small is becoming large.

Here’s the Money:  This Proforma Income is for a 64-page SNAP Publication.

* Ad Revenue    $13,000   (40% ads at the low $500 per ad page rate)

* Editorial Revenues   $4,635

* Gross Revenue    $17,635

* Printing  Expense $4,300

* Estimated Operational Expenses  $1,500

* Profit $11,835

That’s right $11,835 is left… for you.

You might even earn more.  Failing national and global values plus fake news makes local news more valuable.   Fewer readers trust or want to see or read the global news any more.

Publications focused on local communities are growing.   Small local media is still believed and respected.

SNAP publications can be really small, as little 10,000 readers, with tiny staffs.

We might no longer believe or even care what we read in the big news, but we won’t stop reading stories about ourselves or our neighbors.

The growing bastion of our beliefs reside in the “Sense of  Community”.   The strength we gain from society is fortified by SNAP.

SNAP publications are:

* Hyper Local (Small Distribution Area)

* Focused on Quality Vs. Quantity

* Reaching Readers with Low Distribution Costs

* Published With Low Printing & Operational Costs

* Providing Affordable Advertising Rates – All Businesses (Large & Small) Can Afford & Profit

* Giving Service to the Community

* Engaging Readers because the Publication is About Them and Their Community

This is a proven business model as you’ll see below.

Advantages of SNAP Publishing:

There are many positive benefits beyond the profit.

#1:  Freedom of Choice. When you  own your own business and all the benefits that go along  with it, you can set your own hours.  You work when you want to, not when you are told.   Working at home eliminates a commute unless you count the 8 seconds it takes to walk from the bedroom to your office.   You can even work in your pajamas.  One SNAP publisher who helped develop this program says that this is one of his favorite benefits.  You don’t have to ask permission to take time off to attend sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event.

#2:  Greater control over your earnings and your destiny.  If you want to earn more, you give yourself a raise by increasing your revenue.  When you work hard, you are working hard for your benefit and wealth not someone else’s.

#3: Tremendous tax benefits.  Many after tax expenditures become tax deductible business expenses.

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

#5:  You have PRESS Credentials.  Some big venues (like NASCAR) require official credentials which you can get by calling the press office.  Other smaller venues, you can create your own “PRESS” badge and it usually gets you “Behind the Scenes” access.  Not to mention, everyone wants to talk to the press so they can end up in the magazine.

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

#6: Prestige (Near Celebrity Status).   He also said: We get invited to everything because people want our magazine to review their events.  Additionally, we are very well known around town.

#7:  Service  to the Community.   He told us that he gets raves about how his publication and the content they publish really shines a positive light on the community.  He wrote: We give a voice organizations that normally wouldn’t have one.  We raise awareness to programs being hosted by the myriad of organizations here in town that most people would normally never hear of.  

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

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

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

Obviously, this type of special benefit doesn’t happen everyday but once in a lifetime is good enough.

#8:  You can be philanthropic.  One of the publications we studied chose two non-profit organizations to support.  One of the things non-profits need is press coverage and advertising.  They give about $10,000 worth of advertising a year to their non-profits and various other groups to help them get the exposure they need.

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

#10:  You are in the know.  One publisher said: Because we are part of the press, we get a tremendous amount of Press Releases e-mailed to us on a daily basis.  We are usually the first to know about something new going on in town.  If we aren’t the first, we are always included.  And, as part of the research we do for articles, we tend to uncover information people don’t know or have forgotten about.

#11:  You can have big-picture perspective without going broke. Being able to fit your business to circumstances can sometimes be the most important benefit of all.  A small niche publisher had just started their magazine when their daughter was diagnosed with bone cancer.   During their daughter’s hospitalization they were able to be there 24/7… yet continue to build the business.

That publisher told me… “This is one of the BEST reasons for owning this type of business, the freedom to work from the hospital room on your laptop and be there when your child needs you the most”.

In another case, a SNAP publisher had started a snap magazine and was then diagnosed with cancer.  In her darkest hours she was able to continue publishing.

This is an incredible success story that Perla Crosby has achieved in Sanford, Florida.

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

Benny & Perla Crosby from the February issue of My Sandford magazine.

Here is what Benny wrote about how SNAP helped  during her hardest of times:

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

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

See the December 2017 issue of  My Sanford magazine below (1).

You can learn how to create an $11,835 income in the “SNAP Up” section of our self publishing course “Self Fulfilled-How to be a Self Publisher”.

This course is normally offered at $299, but in a moment I’ll show how you can have it FREE.   First here is another way to earn a lot of extra income.

Idea #2: Double the $11,835 Income.

Perla Crosby is still going like “gangbusters” with the “My Sanford” magazine.  This has been a slow progressive process but her perseverance has paid off.   Recently she added a new dimension that is normal for successful SNAP publications.  She sponsored an (“The Best of Sanford”) event this year at the Wayne Densch theater with entertainers, video etc.   There were approximately 500 people in attendance and this generated new interest in the magazine and an increase in advertising.

Magazines can double their income by adding an events business.

Here’s why:

  • 90% of the expense of a well planned event is marketing.
  • Successful marketing depends on having a focused list of people and a way to reach them.
  • When you have a SNAP publication the readers are the focused list and the publication the delivery vehicle.

Our course “Event – Full Business” shows how to start a small events business and build into larger events that can double the SNAP  income.

Do you crave freedom… and perhaps adventure?  At least desire to get out of the rat race?   Do you want to travel…spend time…live…laugh or love in more than just one place?  Do you want the places you go to be ones you choose?

Or would you rather settle down in a low stress, safe, nurturing town, abroad or in Smalltown USA?

You can live such a lifestyle with a SNAP publication and events business.

There are few people more capable of promising this type of life than Merri and me.

For 50 years (I began May 1968) we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have had an events business conducting seminars, workshops, courses and tours.

Our seminar/conference/events/business has allowed us to visit and to live almost anywhere we have chosen… or not.

Sometimes we have incredible adventures.

Here I am with Merri and an Ecuadorian Yatchak deep in the Llanganatis Jungle creating a shamanic tour.

However, when we want to stay at home we can also do so.  One does not have to travel to have an events business.

Here I am (in brown shirt) speaking to a delegate at an event that we conducted at our Florida home.

We even built a…

seminar hall on Little Horse Creek so we could stay in the mountains when we desired… and still conduct events.

Here is one of the small groups at a retreat we conducted in the seminar hall.

You do not have to do this much to own an events business!  Lesson Two of a course “Event – Full Business” shows how to start small and gradually build a larger events business (if that is your desire) as we have done.

We have conducted events as small as two delegates and some with over 400.

ecuador-exports

Here Merri and I are speaking to over 400 + people in Quito, Ecuador.  We know the events business inside and out… large and small.

There are innumerable fringe benefits to an events business.  For example, almost all of our global travel has been tax deductible.

The pay has certainly not been bad either.  As you’ll see below, one time we earned  $142,260 in three days.  In another instance, we earned over $135,000 in two days.  Once our earnings exceeded $200,000 in just three days.

Yet the income has been a small part of this adventure.  The expanded horizons… the people we have met… the adventures we have shared… the tens of thousands of delegates we have enjoyed and hopefully helped… the poor we have served… the freedom we have felt… to be able to go where we desire and come home, when we desire, with more than when we left.

These facts have dramatically enriched our lives….and we hope others.

Now we would like to help improve your lifestyle as well… if… earning with a seminar, tour events business appeals to you.

We have conducted seminars, tours or events or spoken at them in… (alphabetical order)  Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary (before the Iron Curtain came down), Indonesia, Isle of Man, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands,  Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and at one time or another most of the United States and more.

There is a possibility that Merri and I know more about conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world.  Because so many asked… we created an online correspondence course on how to create your own events business.

Our online correspondence course:  “Event – Full Business” is normally offered at $349, but you can also start this course FREE in the special offer below.

Three examples –  How to be free, have adventure and an outstanding income earned wherever you choose.

You can use SNAP right where you live like Perla Crosby with “My Sanford”.

Perla Crosby publishes MySanford magazine (1)

Here are examples of other self publishers who use the SNAP principles.

Example #1: Gain freedom to move… anywhere.

Dave and Sherry Johnson wanted to spend part of their time in Ecuador.

They moved part time to Cuenca Ecuador and started the “Cuenca Expats” Magazine (2).

snap magazine

This gave them the ability to earn in Ecuador as well as get to know and become an important part of the expat community right away after their move.

Example #2: Start even in the wrong time and place.

The Johnson’s proved that the SNAP concept works almost anywhere when they started another magazine, “Asheboro Magazine”.

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

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

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

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

You can earn this type of income by building a SNAP publication combined with an affiliated events business.

The Self Publishing course “Self Fulfilled How to Write to Sell” includes how to use the SNAP system.  The “Event-Full” course teaches how to have an events business.

Ordering both these courses normally would cost $649.  Many thousands have paid this price.

Both of these courses are included FREE in your International Club membership.

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.

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.

Club members also receive Pi and the $29.95 report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” and the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip 2017” FREE.
