Follow the Less Beaten Path


Over the years, we have moved around the world so we can share many little known ideas at this site.

See how this journey began to prepare for the COVID-19 pandemic in 2016.

gary scott

Biking by myself is part of the global disaster plan I began in 2016.  4 years later at 73, I’m still going strong and so is the plan.

The information we have gained from more than 50 years of global, living, investing, business and travel, has helped thousands earn more, protect their wealth and improve their natural health because the ideas are about paths less traveled.

Getting away from the mainstream is the best way to assure success.

Let me be clear from the start… the COVID-19 pandemic will create enormous opportunity for the few who find ways

I began writing about multi currency portfolios over five decades ago when many thought I was crazy.

My first book, published in the 1970s “Passport to International Profit” was about the benefits of international investing and business.

Decades passed before the establishment jumped on the bandwagon.

We were able to capture profit in that unbeaten path because an emergence of the global economy seemed quite certain.  After WWII, the United  States led the way, using capitalistic democracy and the Marshall plan to help Europe and then Japan recover.  A decade or so later China was brought on board.  As more nations rebuilt, middle classes surged and this brought prosperity equal and even beyond the US.

Smart equity investors simply invested into markets before they emerged.

This was easy investing until this global expansion went wrong.

What happened?

As is the nature of all things living, the reaction to growing prosperity was not satisfaction, but an increased craving for more.  Instead of adding to success by working longer and increasing productivity, everyone began to want more for doing less.

Politicians acquiesced to the demands by promising more for less… mostly in the future.  This led to  swollen bureaucracies, bloated budgets, and massive debts that allowed legal systems, health care organizations and political schemes to divide the haves and have nots.  The middle class, the engine of global prosperity, gained more and more, but it was all in false promises and faked numbers.  Real standards of living no longer rose but actually offered less.  

Huge technological shifts, access to jet powered airlines for all, the TV, telephone, the internet, cell phones and so much more, dramatically increased the human productivity, but the advances could not keep up with the demographic challenges, the pollution of our lands and the devisiveness of global politics.  

Too much had gone wrong… increased debt, inflation of money as well as images and words, loss of the belief in truth, integrity and many of the ideals that had helped the expansion.

Almost everything we shared in our newsletters and at our website were of things international until 2010 when Merri and I left Ecuador and returned to Smalltown USA.

We were looking for a new, less travelled path.  The past 70 years had brought the world almost unimaginable advantages, but the system that offered these improvements was broken.   We needed a new way to live that offered us the best that modern life and technology can bring while protecting us from a system so fractured that it was bound to collapse.   

With this in mind, I researched and developed a life style that I believe uses the good of modern technology while protecting from the bad. Merri and I started living this way and  I wrote about it in a report entitled “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”.

In 2016 I wrote this note to promote that report:

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

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

Just like five decades ago many thought I was crazy.  After all, in 2016 the global economy was booming.  The US stock market and others had reached all times highs and was surging ahead.

The puffing continued through 2020 until the COVID-19 pandemic took hold and exposed many of the cracks in our global society.  

Not so many think I am crazy now.

Because we live a Preppie lifestyle, Merri  and I have not had to change much.   We are pretty reclusive to begin with living in agricultural areas with lots of room (acres) between ourselves and our neighbors.   We already avoid crowds, didn’t do many movies, attend clubs or go to bars, clubs, etc.

We stay in touch with most of our many friends around the world virtually.

We already had a good 3 month supply of canned food and each trip to the store we simply restock a few extra things… have tripled up on olive oil, oatmeal, and almond butter that goes along with the orange, lemon, blackberry and loquat preserves we had already canned from fruit on our farms.

We already go to the store during down times and clean everything with WOW25 which lab tests show is a hospital grade disinfectant.   We wash hands with it, bath with it, clean cloths and dishes, floors etc. with it as part of our pre COVID-19 routine.

We already wash all fruit and vegetables with it and have added washing every can when its brought in the house and again before it’s opened.

I’ll still hike with some friends but we skip breakfast before our hikes and stay six feet apart.

We already take daily food supplements, and my daily exercise, biking, swimming, walking, yoga are all done alone as are my meditations and the daily sits in the infrared sauna.

Plus we have always worked from home, stopped doing seminars years ago  and don’t consult in person with clients.   Right now I think that a computer virus is more risk than corona virus.

How can we avoid these risks?

gary scott

I love my greenhouses.  Learn why a victory type garden produces more than just food.

Thinking about the flood of risks that bombard us, long before the COVID-19 pandemic we took a less beaten path.  Now it’s helping us do what we love in a way that increases our safety from Doomsday and prepares us for opportunity in the recovery.

This lifestyle is for those who expect the world to get better and live and earn based on that expectation but enjoy a progressive lifestyle of freedom that also happens to prepare us for bad times as well as good.

One of our bikes always has a basket on it.  Can you guess why?

We call the lifestyle pruppism. I hope you’ll share it with me.  See why below.

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.

loquat

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.

Twenty Years Ago


May is a special month for me.  I took my first trip abroad in May,  52 years ago (this year).

But March 1st has become a special date also.

On March 1, 2000, I wrote:  This is the first issue of World Reports delivered via our web site and in a way this change reflects the flavor of what I will have covered here. Using the time tested axiom of “As Above-So Below”, this issue reflects the enormous opportunity all of us have as we evolve from the Information Era into the Imagination Era.

I wrote that report while overlooking white robed hemlocks shivering in a Blue Ridge dawn. There was sweet silence and snowflakes falling.  Snow blankets were building in still air as the day awakened in the cold.

multi-currency-snow

Merri and me at our North Carolina farm 20 years ago

I was at our farm on Little Horse Creek North Carolina.

That first email report said: Winter in the high country seems a harsh time at first glance, forlorn grey days, bitter cold and icy, storms. But where would we be without such cleansing. How would we keep the weeds in control? One reason Merri and moved from the city to Ecuador and the Blue Ridge Mountains is to get in closer touch with the law of the farm (if you don’t plant in the spring-no matter how much politics are played, you won’t get a crop in the fall). Normally though we would not spend winter in these mountains but go to our home in Ecuador.

That report was mostly about investing in Ecuador.

There was a huge crisis in Ecuador at that time.  The currency has collapsed. Banks had all shut down. The country had run our of gas.

The report said: “You may have read in the news about the problems of Ecuador in recent days and wondered why I am investing there.  The crisis is very deep and we still have some rough years ahead. I would want to believe that we have nowhere else to go from here but up. About dollarization? The new President wants to dollarize. A very good thing, he should take this opportunity to do so.”

We began taking investors to Ecuador shortly after and found some of the greatest real estate bargains I have ever came across.

That report looked at other areas of opportunity.

The market for care is one of the largest in the world. Consider this, it is estimated that the U.S. market for funerals is 20 billion, diet – 33 billion, home furnishings – 40 billion, perfume – 3 billion, jewelry  16 billion, coffee – 6 billion, tourism – 300 billion, advertising – 291 billion.

But the market for health care alone is over 1 trillion! And health care is just one part of the care market. Other booming areas in care include pets – 12 billion, toys – 30 billion.

The report gave an early warning about problems with Americans holding accounts with overseas banks.

This is why in an era of bank consolidation where banks are trying to become bigger to be more powerful and better, I recently recommended shares in a small community bank that offers personal service.

The report also warned about risk in the stock market and passed on Warren Buffets warning that he did not expect the market to rise more than 4% per annum over the next four years.

That was at the top of the .dotcom boom but the historical chart of the Dow shows that Buffet was right to issue a warning.

The Dow fell over the next four years.

buffett

I think the most important section in that report was about the evil of specialization.

Another root of the care market is specialization. Industry, businesses and professions often become so focused on their piece of specialization that they no longer see all the parts. Take medicine as an example and compare an experience I observed in Ecuador with what might take place in the western world. Merri and I were staying at our house in the compound of Taita Yatchak one of Ecuador’s great healers and met a couple who had traveled clear across the country to have their sick baby healed (Taita Yatchak had been referred as a healer of last resort). Since the couple had traveled for an entire day, Taita Yatchak invited them to stay and we listened to the baby cry the night through.

In the morning I happened to be sitting nearby when Taita Yatchak talked to the family. “The baby is fine,” he said. “Your milk is what is wrong,” he said facing the mother. “You have an infection. But then he turned to the father. But it is you and your actions that are the source of the infection. We will work on you and then all will be well.”

Taita Yatchak saw and cared enough to include the whole family.

This problem, specialization, has certainly grown in the past two decades.

See how to overcome the specialization problems created by the Coronavirus below… why and how they led to our Pruppie lifestyle.

The “Almost” Guarantee


Here’s a solid, but mostly hidden fact…  there is greater prosperity ahead, for the entire world.

This is “almost ” a sure thing.  (We’ll see how to deal with the almost in a moment).

The simple laws of supply and demand guarantee that a strong global economy will continue to add more and more wealth.

Technology is making people more productive.  Increased productivity increases supply.

There is a growing global population. Growing population increases demand.

Those are the basics.  We can’t really argue with that.

More supply… more demand… more wealth.

We can see this fact in play in the Wall Street Journal article, “U.S. Household Net Worth Pushes Further Into Record Territory” (1).

The article says:  Household wealth rose more than $2 trillion in the fourth quarter with help from rising stock and home prices.

Americans’ wealth pushed further into record territory in the final quarter of last year, hitting nearly $100 trillion thanks to rising stock markets and property prices.

Household net worth—the value of all assets such as stocks and real estate minus liabilities like mortgage and credit-card debt—rose more than $2 trillion last quarter to a record $98.746 trillion.

Soaring Wealth Hitting Lofty Levels Rising property and stock valuations have pushed net worth well above peaks seen before prior recessions.

The sad tragedy is that most people will not share in this growth and prosperity.

According to CNN’s article “America’s wealth gap is getting even bigger” (2) wealth inequality has skyrocketed with the growing prosperity.

The article says:  In 2016, median household net worth improved across all income brackets — up 16% overall since 2013 — but those on the higher end of the income spectrum did the best. The top 10% of earners saw their household net worth increase 40% over the three-year period, according to the Fed.  That has increased the nation’s already large economic divide.

Here’s one way of understanding the difference that makes. The median upper-income family (those who make more than $127,600) now holds 75 times the wealth of the median low-income family (those who make less than $42,500), according to an analysis of the data by the Pew Research Center. In 2007, top earners were worth 40 times as much. In 1989, the multiple was 28.

The richest 1% of families controlled a record-high 38.6% of the country’s wealth in 2016, according to a Federal Reserve report.

There’s a couple of reasons why wealth equality is growing.

First, the system is “rigged” in favor of the rich.  It takes money to make money and the big growth in wealth since the last recession has been in stocks and real estate.    Stocks had a banner year in 2017, with the S&P 500 rising 19% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average gaining 25%. Household wealth in the stock market climbed by $1.346 trillion in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, the value of households’ real estate increased $511.2 billion, reflecting continuing increases in home prices. U.S. house prices rose 1.6% in the fourth quarter, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s house price index, and rose 6.7% on the year.

The lower half of earners in America do not have the money to invest in either real estate or shares.  As prices rise, those who are not investors become relatively poorer.

Second, as wealth rises, so too does prices.  The lower end of earners not only cannot invest, they save less.   Though wealth has grown in the last years, Americans are overall are saving less.  The US saving rate was 3.74% for 2017, down from 5.98% a year earlier and 7.19% in 2015.  This is because the lower income earner is saving less while the upper income earners are growing increasingly rich.

Growing wealth disparity is a never ending story.  The likelihood such disparities going away are dim.  There is not much, as individuals,  we can do at a global, national or even regional level.

Let’s make sure that we are not caught at the lower end of this distribution of wealth.

Avoid the traps that ambush freedom and wealth opportunity.  Be an investor and lender not a borrower.  Be an earner, a giver… not a taker, a dependent.  Live the life you choose, not the one that the political and commercial interests and their agendas try to instill in and push upon you.

Every day a crossroad appears somewhere that can set you free.  Maybe a chance to speculate on a share you know will rise… perhaps a job, or business opportunity, a way to serve and be valuable.  Or it can simply be a savings…  an obligation dismissed or a debt set aside or delayed.

We should look for where these intersections appear.

Beware!  Often several of the roads ahead seem wider, smoother, and better marked.  Those paths will be traveled by most.

The wide avenues that the masses follow are usually toll roads paved with traps… hidden agendas that make a few super rich but create a secret slavery for the likes of you and me.

There is a systematic deception created by a few controllers ready to ambush your efforts, restrain your ambitions and lock up the rights, opportunity and liberties that should set you on a path of unrestrained wealth.

The few in-the-know individuals who avoid being ambushed by the pitfalls can have everlasting wealth and truly be free.

How to deal with the “Almost” guarantee.  Be a Pruppie.

What’s a Pruppie?

Pruppies combine the values of Uppies (Upward professionals) and Preppers (those who prepare for worst-case scenarios) so they can lead lives of wealth, travel, adventure and freedom despite any disaster.

Uppies expect everything to expand.  So do Pruppies. They take advantage of every new benefit and technology they can.  Pruppies enjoy using the fruits of our ancestor’s deliberations and labors to live better in this advanced technological world.

Preppers are prepared in case anything or everything fails. Pruppies do as well. Pruppies engage in something they love, as a business or hobby, that protects their lifestyle in case society and the global economy fail.

Embracing Pruppisim, is a practical idealism.  Pruppies combine the strengths of Preppers and Uppies.

Taking the positive worldview pays off. No matter how dark the world, there has always been opportunity.   The sun always shines somewhere.

Despite the negative headlines, and apparent crises we have faced, the modern world has lived and thrived through the Cold War and MAD, Y2K, GridX II, the Peak Oil Crisis, the recession of the 1970s, 1980s 2007, etc. etc. etc.

Is Uppie Still Valid?

Will the growing tensions in our world destroy it?  Do we face war, the end of pensions, a ruined Social Security, a crashing dollar, a collapsing economy?

Maybe, but until the growth of supply and demand ends, Uppies will have opportunities for more wealth.Why the prepper backup?

Some Preppers prepare for worst-case scenarios like peak oil (that was a waste) or Armageddon (hasn’t come yet).

Pruppie backup is different because it’s positive. Pruppies do something they love, that will prosper, if everything goes wrong.  Pruppie backup is more than just a shelter from bad news.

Even if there is no Armageddon, some day a catastrophe beyond our control could redirect the course of our individual lives.  We might lose a job, learn that our pension won’t pay, have a health crisis or find that our dollars won’t buy as much as they must.

The Pruppie Factor shares global lifestyle experiences that helped my wife and me adapt for wealth, freedom and adventure in good times and bad.

We have turned our Prepper hobbies into businesses.  Writing and real estate have been our mainstay businesses but we turned our agricultural hobbies into businesses as well.

We have an orange grove at our Florida home.  We test new organic ways to make citrus farming better for the environment and create super oranges we sell.

We raise trout at our North Carolina farm.  These small businesses in food and agriculture are satisfying, fun and add safety in our lives as we always have a food based survival income.

Follow the path that is right for you.  Live a life of growing abundance and adventure as you protect against the almost guarantee.

Learn how to be a Pruppie in my report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

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.

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 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.

  • 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.
