Teinen Zero


Teinen zero aka “zer0 retirement” is Japanese.

But the concept should be lively everywhere. We live in an era where technology makes the value of our experience worth much more than the cost of acquiring it.

This fact has changed the value of age.

Image from Mayekawa: Where age is a resource not a handicap (1).  Mayekawa has a policy called teinen zero (zero retirement). At this company, people are free to work as long as they want to. If a person turns 60, is eager to continue and colleagues agree, then employment is guaranteed with no age limit.

We can learn lessons on the value of age in the article “How Aging Japan Defied Demographics and Revived Its Economy” (2).

The article says: Japan has defied expectations and revived its economy by refreshing its labor force with the elderly, women and foreigners,

Now, the country is in its second-longest economic expansion since World War II despite its aging population and low birthrate, the newspaper said.

In 2004, the government raised the social security retirement agent from 60 to 65. It also required companies to either raise or completely abolish retirement age. In some cases, companies began a system for re-employing workers who did retire.

In addition, government officials also introduced programs to get retirees into the workforce and reverse the outmigration of young people. Similar efforts were made to get women into the workforce, the newspaper said.

The government also eased the rules for foreigners to work in Japan. And last month officials created two new visa categories and expects an additional 340,000 mostly blue-collar workers from outside Japan over the next five years.

A USA Today article “More older Americans working” (3) shows that this shift is taking place in USA as well.

The article says: Older workers are driving job growth as boomers remain in workforce longer

Americans 55 and over made up about half of all employment gains in 2018, according to an analysis of Labor Department data by The Liscio Report, a research publication for investors. That’s an eye-popping share considering that demographic made up only a quarter of last year’s labor force — which includes people working and looking for jobs.

One of the most deadly assumptions is that retirement brings our golden years.

Isaac Asimov is quoted as saying: “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”

Scrub off the idea of retirement!

The concept of retirement, as we know it, began with a political ploy in the late 1800s.  Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck of Germany announced that he would pay a pension to any nonworking German over age 65.   Sneaky politician that he was, he knew that hardly anyone lived to be 65 at the time.  Politics or not, this set the arbitrary world standard for the age when people retired.  The trick worked.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned from this.  He used this age when he pushed for the creation of the Social Security Act of 1935.  This idea of needing to quit being productive at age 65 grew and still worked because the the average life expectancy then was 61 years.

Now the wind is not behind the back of Social Security.  When the program was created in 1935 there was a ratio of approximately 37 workers for every 1 retiree. Today, the ratio is is less than 3 workers per 1 retiree.

The article “A 92-year-old Billionaire Explains Why You Should Never Retire” (4) exemplifies why we should not be caught by the assumption about the age of 65.

The article says: Joseph Segal doesn’t have too many regrets in life.

And in an interview with The Globe and Mail, the 92-year-old Canadian billionaire, who built a fortune through a number of different industries like retail and real estate, says one of the best choices he made was never retiring — despite already having made hundreds of millions of dollars.

“When you keep going, you haven’t stopped and you don’t know where the finish is going to be,” he said about avoiding retirement, adding that fresh business ideas continued to come to him well past 65.

“Life is an aircraft journey,” he said. “You’re ascending when you’re young. You’re cruising when you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s or 70s or whatever. At some point, you descend. I’m descending but I’m fighting it.”

Encore careers  are considered solutions to retirement.  I disagree.  They should be the main act! They should be pinnacle careers!

First of all, why should we need to retire?    If we are not tired in the first place, why re-tire?

The more important question is – “Why are we so tired that we would want to be retired?”

Generally we are tired because we are working too much at something that does not sufficiently fulfill rather than having fun, doing what we love AND earning in the process.  This site focuses on ways to create micro businesses that earn but more importantly are gratifying, fun and make us feel excited to rise in the morning so we can serve the mission we feel needs to be filled.

This is the age of age!  Our best, most profitable, most enjoyable and helpful career should be after age 50, 60 or even 70.

There are numerous economic scenarios that could ruin retirement for many.  Inflation, a falling greenback, another market crash or recession.  Any of these could doom traditional retirement plans.  The timing of these events are beyond our control.

That’s okay because diversification into a business that fulfills and serves can be better than stocks and bonds, cash and gold… all put together.

Right now… cash pays almost nothing.  Bonds are quite sure to lose purchasing power.  Gold could rise or fall.  Shares have come off their all time high which creates a problem of timing.  They could fall.

Invest in your dream!

I had a little health scare during the winter that sent me packing to the ER.  The problem was easily resolved and all the tests, scans, blood tests etc. showed that otherwise I was seriously healthy.

This started me realizing that in my 70s, I have better health, more money and more experience than in my 30s-40s etc and can plan on having 30 years left to put it to work. (My mom’s 95 and still alive and mentally alert).

So that’s my assumption, 30 more years to work.

Well…not quite work.  Those who do what they love, never work.  30 more years of fulfillment through writing.

“Teinen Zero!” That’s a good idea that resolves many concerns and can help you live longer.  Why not make this your new assumption now?

Live Well 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.

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 like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three 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 travel?  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… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

gary-scott-international-business

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

A group of readers visiting our North Carolina home after learning how to gain freedom with a micro business.

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.  If you provide genuine care in anything you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

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, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

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.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

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 five of seven secrets 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.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

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.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

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 an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

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

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

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.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international 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 can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

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.

At www.garyascott.com our emailed messages are regularly sent to over 20,000 readers.

You learn the income producing power of defined focus and immediate repetition to get good search engine rankings and sales.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

International Business Made EZ is arranged in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of business ideas and case studies based on our 48 years of experience.

The course  describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a multi-million dollar international micro business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

Terry T., an attorney from Germany took the course and enjoyed this fact when he stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.

Learn How to Gain Total Security.  Learn how and why the global economy makes employment riskier because change is no longer an option.  See ways to become and agent of and profiteer from change never a victim of change.

Learn How to Perfect a Lifestyle.  Living as you choose is important because life is short.  Fortunately matching what you love with what you do in business actually increases profits.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

Learn How to Market your Product.  Learn truths that rule the market place.  Gain knowledge on subjects like… How to Make the Truth Exciting.

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

Does that sound fair enough?

The Happiness Advantage


The Happiness Advantage gives us time. 

This chart of the S&P 500 exemplifies an investment timing problem.

How many of us were able to time the market and exit before the 2000 or 2008 crash?

nasdaq.com

It took eight years for the market to recover after 2000.  It took five years for the market to recover after 2008.

Pensions that held just the S&P 500 index took 14 years to get back to zero! 

In 2008, the S&P 500 had barely returned to zero from 2000 before it crashed again. Then it did not rise back to its level of 2000 until 2014.

What happens if a market correction erodes the value of your pension funds and it takes five, or eight or even 14 years to recover?

The problem with stock market assets is that very small, very specific periods of time in stock markets have very large influence on nominal returns.   The chart below shows that all of the extra profit potential of US stocks over US Treasury Bills in the 89 years reviewed was contained in just 44 months, 4%  of the entire time.   Are we smart enough to capture that 4% exactly?

The same is also true of losses. A majority of horrendous losses occur in tiny slips of time and if we do not spot them, it can take years to recover.

Keppler Asset Allocation

The New York Times article “To Dodge a Market Dip That Threatens Your Retirement” (1) points out the problem.

For older people invested in stocks, the performance of the market in the early years of your retirement can have a lasting effect on your portfolio, which will remain a dynamic entity for perhaps three more decades. If you have to start selling investments when they are worth less, you’ll have to to sell more shares to get the cash you need — and the repercussions build on themselves.

That can really start digging a hole in your portfolio that becomes harder to dig out of.  It is really the first 10 years of the market performance in retirement that are going to drive your outcome.”

While the S&P 500 lost 6.2 percent last year, the final three months of the year were especially volatile. It’s unclear where the market will go tomorrow, or the next decade.  The growth of your portfolio is largely determined by when you started investing and when you retire.

Let’s say a person saved 15 percent of her earnings — a flat salary that grew with inflation — during a 30-year career. If that person retired in 1982, she would have accumulated just over five times her final salary. If she retired in 2000, however, she would have amassed 17 times her salary.

The article does not point out a vital and dangerous fact…  that after retiring in 2000, the “17 times her salary” could have been just about cut in half in the 2000 market crash.

The problem is magnified as retirement comes near.  Instead of adding money to one’s portfolio, we’re spending it.  We can’t take advantage of the downturn and wait for the next big recovery.

The NYT article provides some simple strategies to try to reduce the effects of an ill-timed downturn.

Working longer or picking up a part-time job is one option.  Other steps include, better  portfolio diversification, lower cost investments and reduced spending.

Another approach is to reduce exposure to stocks and invest in bonds or get an annuity.

Another suggestion is to hold a cash reserve.  Keep enough to cover basic essentials in cash bearing instruments to cover an extended period so you don’t have to sell your investment portfolio until it has recovered.

The downside to investing in bonds, annuities or cash is that returns are diminished and purchasing power may fall due to inflation.

The NYT.com article points out that one approach to gain extra income is to delay taking Social Security as long as you reasonably can.

The article says: “The effective return of delaying Social Security is much higher than what you will earn in the market today,” said David Blanchett, head of retirement research for Morningstar. “It is like a 10 percent guaranteed return.”

Your benefits generally rise by 8 percent for each year you wait to collect the check beyond your “full retirement age” — that is, the age you’re eligible for a full benefit, which is currently 66 years and 2 months for people born in 1955.

Someone set to receive a full benefit of $1,413 monthly (the average benefit amount), who instead waited two more years, would receive roughly $1,640 — an amount that would rise with inflation.

Regretfully, Social Security is not as solid as it might seem because the System is not allowed to borrow money.  The only sources of funding are current Social Security taxes paid in and the Social Security Trust Fund.

When the Trust Fund runs dry, payments must be reduced to a level that can be sustained by Social Security tax receipts in any given year.

The Social Security Trust fund is projected to run dry in the 2030s.  At that time, payments are projected to be reduced by about 25 percent so Social Security payments will only be 75 percent of the benefits currently promised.

Medicare by the way is in worse shape and is forecast to be depleted in the 2020s.

Unfortunately all these projections are based on the idea that the assets in the Social Security Trust Fund are rock solid.

They are not.  The Trust Fund holds US government debt and Social Security checks could be jeopardized if the government reaches its debt ceiling and defaults on debt repayment.

This almost happened in 2011 when it was less than two days before the United States potentially defaulted on its financial obligations.  Had that happened, the Social Security system would not have been able to make full payments.

The current government shut down shows that Congress and the executive branch may not always be able to reach timely agreements and solutions.

Elements for a “Perfect Wave Economic Disaster” exist… an equity market at a mature – up-near-the-top,  high priced  point…  global tensions… a disturbed political system… low interest rates…  aging demographics…  pension funds almost everywhere under funded… excessive government debt… over priced US dollar.   These are so many economic dominoes in a likely position to fall and bring the equity market tumbling down.

There are only three real, dependable solutions to having enough, in retirement, if the market goes south.

#1: Have enough to ride through any storm.

#2: Have a way to keep earning.

#3: Spend less.

Our “Purposeful Investing Course” helps learn how to diversify, reduce costs of investment, increase safety and improve profits, but when markets of down everywhere… there is no solution to lowered prices, except time.

Our mantra…” Turn your Passion into Profit” is the most elegant solution because it helps you gain “the Happiness Advantage”.

For example, a research paper published in the “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America” (2)  show that reporting higher life satisfaction leads to earning significantly higher levels of income.

It’s generally assumed that greater wealth leads to happiness. Several studies have found that happiness only rises as income rises up until one gets about $75,000 a year — at which point happiness doesn’t improve as you earn more.

Other research shows that the opposite might be true: Happiness leads to greater wealth.  Several studies support this idea.

That research indicates that happiness and income are connected by a two-way relationship, and that human well-being can itself be a source of economic dynamism.

Why not boost happiness by doing what you love so you earn more and increase your satisfaction and fulfillment.

There are innumerable ways to be happy.  The alternatives are almost as rich as the population.  Your answer is unique and options almost unlimited once you get set on a path that generates enthusiasm in your heart.

There you have it… almost unlimited opportunity even in the most gloomy world.  We should all be happy about that.

One vehicle for happy earning is writing and self publishing. See below to learn more.

Live Well 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.

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 like to have a lifestyle and a front yard like this… almost a thousand acres of hacienda overlooking the Andes?

Would you enjoy living in two, three 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 travel?  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… that front yard above is ours in a remote Andean hacienda.  This is only one of several homes that we have gained (to live and use in business) from the secrets we’ll share below.

In the summer, we retreat to our 250+ acre farm high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina.  Here’s our front yard in these mountains and the view from my home office.

gary-scott-international-business

Home offices in all your homes are important by the way.  They are part of one global micro business secret and you’ll see why have two home offices (and using two cars in business) can save thousands in taxes.

When you have an international micro business that involves your home and car, the tax benefits are fantastic.

gary-scott-international-business

A group of readers visiting our North Carolina home after learning how to gain freedom with a micro business.

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.  If you provide genuine care in anything you can be anywhere and beat out big businesses in your niche because big business has created an uncaring world and everyone craves care.

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, International Business Made EZ.   This course helps you learn how to earn and live wherever you choose!

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.

I searched for these elusive secrets of opportunity for over twenty years, looking for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential.

I finally found them and after years of proof and would like to share with you.  The opportunity I sought had to be enormously profitable yet also safe.  It had to work in good times and bad and had to be flexible so it could evolve as times changed.

These were not the only standards.  I wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety and freedom but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not be even a little bit questionable.  It had to be so tax foolproof that Congress would never change it. 

I wanted a tax shelter so good that it would be encouraged by the government.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible.  Nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it.  I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.  But I didn’t find it in Asia.  I went to the Middle East and searched all over Europe… all across the USA and Latin America.  I hardly missed a country.  After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up.  Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world.

This opportunity was not only perfect but I discovered that it was wherever I wanted it to be, in my own back yard, in Florida and our remote home in the High Country of North Carolina and our even more remote cloud forest home in Ecuador.

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 five of seven secrets 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.

Secret #4: These money making systems need to be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5: These businesses usually start small, but grow quite large.  Good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

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.

Before discovering these secrets I had a business but to be honest could never get ahead.  I was almost penniless, in debt and living from month to month, check to check.  Then I discovered these seven secrets…and how to apply them around the world.

Since then our international micro businesses have brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desired, plus more than enough money in the bank.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have leisure time… though when you love your business… why not work?

This is most important, we have fun and feel that we do something beyond just making money every day!  Merri and I do what we love and have learned that through our global business we can accomplish far more important goals, gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short we can help make ourselves and the world better.

Among our greatest thrills is being able to help others through foundations we have started that help the environment and the poor.

More importantly we have the freedom to do all this from many locations (some are remote-you have seen the pictures) that we really enjoy.

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 an international micro business based on it.  You can be international if you love to travel or not.  Regardless of your skills and position there is some approach that will work for you.

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

We are lucky to have a perfect but natural place to raise the trout.  On busy holidays when our monster trout are in demand I have to work hard fishing at that pond.  Pity me!

merrily farms

This pond is just below our house, so raising the trout is EZ for me.

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.

Also, imagine what an international business means to your world travel.  Every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your business.  Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and a TAX DEDUCTIBLE EVENT. 

For example if you have your own business you can gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business because  IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles.

There are similar benefits by having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587.

These are huge tax benefits that can be gained when you have an international, at home,  micro business.

As a real international business person, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Every country needs to do business abroad, and most governments have created many programs to encourage their citizens to do business overseas.  Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection and even subsidies and grants.

There is such an abundance of opportunity that Merri and I have created this program to help you have your own international 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 can do the same with a system contained in an electronic correspondence course called International Business Made EZ.   The course reveals all you need to know about how to start and run your own global business all by yourself.  It answers your questions and gets your business started!

Thousands have profited from this course which has been updated in its fifth edition.

For example, Ben, an investor from Pennsylvania used International Business Made EZ and wrote:

“Jam packed with vital information.  My head is spinning. Thank goodness this is all backed up by your manual. This is a true and cherished gift. Your tips on low cost business are a blessing!  Thank you once again for an outstanding course.  The value far exceeds the price.”

In just a week, you can be well on your way to income and freedom to live wherever you choose!  International Business Made EZ shows you how to take advantage of the five secrets mentioned above and the remaining two secrets below:

Secret #6: Look for ways to gain 1,000% returns in business.  The wealthiest families in the world today come from global businesses.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  Learn how to use stories to make huge shifts in the value of products.  Take for example our friend Earl who is a dog trainer.  On a trip to Ecuador clay whistles in the market place were for sale at .35 cents each.  By calling them dog whistles Earl was able to sell them at $9.95,  a whopping 2,700% mark up!

Secret #7:  Create and market your product everywhere using niche marketing.  There are 11 steps to create the perfect product.  You learn them with International Business Made EZ.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to provide your marketing material for you almost FREE.

Learning how to market is the key to successful business. Knowing how to turn pennies into dollars is good marketing focus. International Business Made EZ gives you this winning marketing knowledge.

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.

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.

You can earn successfully while living anywhere because people of all ages are doing this.  Technology wiped out any disadvantages of age and gender.  A USA Today article entitled “The new entrepreneurs: Americans over 50” explains that older business people often start one person ventures in home offices using technology that did not exist a few years ago.  The article gave an example of Franny Martin who launched a cookie company at age 56 and said she built revenues to over $500,000 a year.   Yet her web site which attracts cookie customers from around the world cost only $3,000 to build.

George K an MD from California confirmed this when he wrote:

Your course helped me to crystallize and clarify ideas I’ve been considering that relate to my interests in writing, travel and ecology.  They showed ways to combine them in a personally engaging and potentially profitable way.  I especially appreciated the practical advice on organizing and marketing-turning ideas into products that sell and make a profit.”

A retired railway executive from Michigan picked up on this aspect and said more.

“Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming an international businessman, particularly the idea of doing business in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).”

Learn How to Market your Product.  Learn truths that rule the market place.  Gain knowledge on subjects like… How to Make the Truth Exciting.

More Comments from Readers

“I completed International Business Made EZ in a (long!) weekend and – unlike many business books and courses – I didn’t fall asleep whilst reading it! I found it helpful to refer back to whilst I put my business ideas into action and the business and banking contacts in the course were worth their weight in gold.”

“There is a lot of rubbish written about business and ‘get rich quick schemes’ and I seem to receive some sort of junk mail or spam e-mail most days trying to sell me a ‘get rich quick’ idea, but I found Gary’s course genuinely different.”

“Firstly, the International Business Made EZ course is written by someone who has tried and proven his international business and then chose to share those practical examples in a course rather than as ‘pie-in-the-sky theory’. Secondly, although the course would show even hard-nosed, skeptical business people a few things about doing business internationally, it is written in a completely unassuming and open way and this makes it easy for anyone to gain maximum benefit in the minimum amount of time from the course.”

This electronic “International Business Made EZ” costs $299. You gain incredible education and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth.

The course is so complete Merri and I extend our “no fooling around-complete satisfaction guarantee” and a special offer because “International Business Made EZ” is only one small part of the special program we have developed for you.

Here is the first part of the special offer.  We provide two emailed courses… “International Business Made EZ”,  and “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

Merri and I use writing and self publishing in our business.  We have earned as much as $20,000 for a single day’s work… and have earned consistently year in and year out… while we do what we love… because of a few secrets.  We write to be self fulfilled… to share what we have gained from living, working, investing and writing all over the world.

We wanted to share these secrets so we created a Self Publishing “Writer’s Camp” weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.  Those who attended love the seminar.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity.  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in the “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for each course (and $299 for the recorded workshop).   We’ll send both courses and the recorded Writer’s Camp to you by email for $299.  You save $598.

Where Big Business Fears to Go


Here’s how you can beat big business with writing.

How can we as individuals, working from our dining room table or something like that,  compete against a huge something like this?

new yorks times

Be where big businesses dare not go… hyper local.

Communities need hyper local news.

Big media fills us with information that is, for us as individuals, mostly meaningless.

What effect will the actions and intentions of all the things around the world that dominates the press, really have on us?  Much of the news is entertainment… mostly conjecture, opinion, pure nonsense.   Little of it is personally useful.  Much of it can harm and is a waste of time.

What we learn about our city, town, county and community means more.

Local news is information that can have an immediate impact on our lives.  This is information we are most likely to act upon and do something about.

Hyper local news is so important that some government’s are financing it.

The New York Times article “News From Your Neighborhood, Brought to You by the State of New Jersey” (1) shows the importance of local news.

Here’s an excerpt: Like publications in the rest of the country, New Jersey’s suburban newspapers pulled back as their business model vaporized, leaving fewer reporters to dig into local scandals or dispatch to neighborhood events. Tiny outfits like The Village Green, which covers two North Jersey towns, have sought to fill the void.

Mary Mann, one of The Village Green’s two editors, juggles writing stories with running the website, working from her kitchen counter when she is not at meetings or protests.

Now, she is looking for help from an unlikely source: the State of New Jersey.

The state’s lawmakers have embarked on a novel experiment to address a local news crisis: putting up millions of dollars in the state’s most recent budget to pay for community journalism.

Some say one journalistic bright spot in New Jersey is an emerging ecosystem of smaller organizations spread across the state, covering communities at a granular level. Many of them grew out of Patch (2), an ambitious investment by AOL several years ago in hyperlocal news, starting websites in hundreds of communities across the country and in dozens in New Jersey. (AOL has since handed over its majority stake in Patch, which has been scaled back considerably.)

The Patch failure highlights our opportunity.

Another New York Times article, “Patch AOL turned over” (3) explains why big business failed at being small.

The article says: The biggest change has come on the advertising side. The hyperlocal concept cannot really live off thousands of ads from pizza parlors and flower shops, as was initially anticipated; such sites need to be a place where national companies can advertise locally.  Toward this end, Patch raised the minimum commitment for an ad campaign to $5,000, to weed out mom-and-pop businesses, and won business from Sony Pictures and Wells Fargo Bank.

This is where big business cannot go.  There are thousands pizza parlors, massage therapists, doctors, dentists, mechanics, flower shops and a multitude of other types of small local businesses, that cannot spend $5,000 for ads.

Their advertising cannot support a big business, but they can support and be highly profitable for you and me and anyone who wants to have a hyper local publishing business.

Small niches is where big business cannot go.  We, as local entrepreneurs can carve out fulfilling and profitable opportunity in these sectors where we can serve our community big time by being small.

Earn & Do Good

Live anywhere.  Earn everywhere. Make a difference.

Here’s an old idea that offers profits in a new and different way.   This is an idea that’s good for a community you choose as well as those involved… and it can generate $11,835 a month of profit… or maybe even more.

This report shares this new “old idea”, how to gain freedom, live where you chose, be an important part of your community, have an outstanding income and do some good.

Learn how to earn high income in your own back yard.   Choose where you want that back yard to be.

You can create a lifestyle that you previously could only dream.

Gain 7 powerful benefits when you choose to become involved:

Benefit #1: Freedom.   You 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 magazine 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 your children’s sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event.  You have greater control over your earnings and your destiny.  If you want to earn more, 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.  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 small area publisher had started a magazine and was then diagnosed with cancer.  In her darkest hours she was able to continue publishing. See why below.

#2:  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 and having a successful small business helps develop strong community economics.

#3:  Prestige (Near Celebrity Status).  One writer who uses this system said: We get invited to everything because people want our magazine to review their events.  Additionally, we are very well known around town.  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 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 called the “Big Sip”.  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.

#4:  Service  to the Community.   You can even be philanthropic.  One of the magazines using this system 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.  The reader told us that he gets raves about how his magazine 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 hyper local magazine, 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 probably saved his life.  

This type of special benefit may not happen everyday, but once in a lifetime is good enough.

#5:  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.   You can have big-picture perspective without going broke.

#6: 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 who 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.

#7: Tremendous tax benefits.  Many after tax expenditures become tax deductible business expenses. Sometimes you can eliminate federal and state tax altogether.

Why does small niche publishing offers such great potential.

Sam Buffet… or is it Warren Walton?  Hyper local publishing is based on three cherished beliefs that Sam Walton and Warren Buffet shared.

sam buffet

Forbes Magazine listed the 10 wealthiest Americans in an article entitled “The Faces Of Wealth in America”.  Both Buffet and the Walton family were there.

sam buffet

Imagine combining the wealth Walton created with that of Warren Buffet.  You get 150.1 billions dollars… far more than the wealth created by Bill Gates and any other three of the top ten combined… by just these two men.

Sam Buffet and Warren Walton!  What a combination.

So I ask, “Whose footsteps would you like to follow?”

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 Buffet’s company, 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 Wal Mart remains committed not just to expanding the business but to improving the communities.

You can enjoy all these benefits through hyper local publishing because small communities can be places, ideas or ideas within places.

For example Burnie Miller, one publisher who attended a Writer’s Camp that Merri and I conducted, founded Healthtrucker.com

There are many magazines about trucking and for truckers, but Healthtrucker.com is just about trucker health and wellness.  Burnie’s business shares his  adventures losing weight, driving truck, and staying healthy on the road.

The factor that makes publications like this successful are 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 this type of 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 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.

The need for a sense of community is greater than ever before.   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, big publications etc.  Yet publications are of little value 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.  One model of publishing in the course shows how to make up to $11,835 a month… or more for a fully guaranteed investment of just $299.  That’s value… plain and simple.

I already knew the person I call the Warren Buffet of the internet… my webmaster, David Cross.

david-cross-image tags:"2012-4-21"

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.

So half of Buffet’s value equation was there.

Merri’s and my lives have been involved in the second half of this equation.

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 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 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 those people.

Merri

Merri with the artist the late Robert Rauschenberg

She was able to meet many famous people like author John D. MacDonald, Robert Rauschenberg, and 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.

These personal examples show that a small area publishing business can help you immerse your lifestyle with like minded souls and people who have common interest from all walks of life.

Of course, there is capital gain potential as well.

The major focus of this report looks at how to earn a good income, in some instances, niche magazines can 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, Felix Dennis made $250 million on selling a few small niche area magazines.

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.

Felix did not inherit this either.  His 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.

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 shares the fact that most niche publishers will not make a hundred million dollar capital gains.  He notes 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 you’ll earn this type of capital gains with a small niche publishing business, I mention this fact because the possibility does exist.

Purpose, income and lifestyle opportunities are the main reasons 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 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.

A more typical example of small niche magazine publishing are Dave and Sherry Johnson who attended one of our Self Publishing courses.  I discovered that Dave and Sherry published a couple of magazines in North Carolina when they enrolled for the course… but what I did not know was the value of what they had developed in publishing small town community magazines.

Dave started as a media marketer and has sold most media including radio, cable television, direct mail, magazine, yellow pages, newspaper and Internet.

He enjoyed great success until times turn sour during the 2007 recession as they did for so many.  Being under the gun, Dave and Sherry lost everything so they moved to Asheboro, North Carolina and started their own magazine which has risen from success to success.

Time and Place

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… 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.

asheboro

This is the issue they published on their 5th year anniversary of Asheboro Magazine (1).

The Johnson’s hyper local business created enormous freedom as well.

When they fell in love with Ecuador, their move there was supported by a new small area magazine when they created Cuenca Expat Life (2).

snap magazine

When I heard this story and read their magazine I let no moss gather beneath my feet and began testing ways to help subscribers publish their own hyper local publication… profitably… immediately… in just a month or two.

Part of this course shows how to create income with a Small Niche publication.

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 also worked with a SNAP magazine in Spain that had Latin American potential.

snap

This is an English language magazine in Spain that has South American expansion possibilities.

The owner stated that this magazine is earning around $250,000 a year.

The Sentinella (3) is an English magazine on the Costa del Sol, known as the ‘little mag that fits in your bag’.  It is aimed at expats who have moved abroad for a better life. The Sentinella has been established in Spain for more than seven and a half years. There are now five magazines operating along the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and the coast of Almeria.

We have combined all these experiences into a 31 step checklist that can help help you publish your own small niche magazine.

Your own small magazine allows you to put your desire to profit through writing to work.

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 as much as $11,835 a month.

Merri and I see hyper local magazines as one of the most important services we have been able to bring to our readers… ever.  This service helps our readers write to sell… to enjoy working with like minded souls and to bring a positive influence to communities.

We tested the market and found that the principles of this type publishing are so powerful that it is possible to achieve success even in the most adverse circumstances.  Take for example the success story that Perla Crosby has achieved in Sanford Florida.

Benny and Perla Crosby used the course 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 MySanford Magazine (4) magazine began with a great success but as it started to develop, disaster struck.

Here is what Benny Crosby wrote about how the course helped  during her hardest of times:

mysanford magazine

Benny & Perla Crosby from an issue of Mysandfordmagazine.

I might add that my wife Perla, even during some dark moments during two cancer 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.

You can earn this type of income by building a hyper local publication focused on what you love.

Hyper local does not have to focus on a place.  It can zero in on a hobby, sport, profession or common interest.  What do you love?  Rare cars?  You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love.  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 environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty?  Would you like to help wipe them out?  Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to travel?  Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?

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 in the process and live wherever you please!   You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.

You can publish about almost anything that interests you.

Take the small area magazine Rebel Riders… “because all of us have a little renegade in us”, a perfect example of how focused on a passion one can be.

snap mag

This magazine is about closely focused as a publication can get… not just for riders, but for rebel riders… in Central Florida.   Advertisers include three full pages from attorneys… “Been in an accident – Call us”.  There are many biking events and bike fests… meets and swaps advertised.  Dozens of bars and restaurants that cater to bikers have ads.  Several motorcycle dealers, sales, repairs and custom cycle shops.  American Legion Post 35 (“For God and Country”) has an ad.  There is a full page for Twisted Tea (“True Iced Tea taste”), a couple of insurance agencies, one financial planner and Theater X (“adult novelties and DVDs”).

Small area publishing can also help you travel, even have an international lifestyle so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere.  This is especially valuable if you love to travel.  For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live and published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.

Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country.  Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years.  We earned by publishing our experiences there.

Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA.  We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren.  We still write (and publish) about what we love and are doing!   In each phase of our lives, the idea of tight focus has allowed us to move and live where we desired.

Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel.  Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business.  Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event

Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection.  Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution.  You do not need a license to publish.  There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.  The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.

The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.

We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business.  This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique.  We started our publishing business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves.  We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person.  When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.

May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.

The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself.   The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers numerous income producing secrets:

Secret #1:  How to gain 1,000% returns.  See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  This online course contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #2:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, the course shows how one friend, before the Internet, never wanted to write and decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.  Now of course publishers who do not want to write can use the internet.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing blunders and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29.  I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.

Secret #3: When to print, how to print and when to go online only.  How to print and fulfill.  Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #4: How to compute and use the Internet.  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 illiterate.  Merri and I have proven this!  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do.   Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.

The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business.  For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net.

We unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation.  This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.

See how when we reached retirement age, we slowed down our self publishing business but still earned $2,404725.98, tax free, over the next ten years.

However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.

I have created this course in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies.  You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes.  All his flying became tax deductible!

You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.

This course is not theoretical.  It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away.  I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.

I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public.  We conducted a course charging $2,000.  Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.

For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:  “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it.  We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction.  Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Lesson #2:  How to Create Your Product.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

Lesson #3:  How to Choose Your Format.  Some ideas are timeless and can be sold in a book for years on end.  Others are better in a magazine, newsletter or other periodic publication. Some products can just be lists, simple one page photocopied ideas or names and addresses. Understand when to print, record (on audio or video) and when to transfer through the Internet. Learn how to choose the format that suits you, full or part time.

Lesson #4:  How to Publish to Sell.  Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn a few advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to write or have ads written.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of Dollars in free publicity.  Learn the tricks of the Internet to easily focus and capture a market there.

Lesson #5:  If You Print-How to Print?  Did you know that you can reduce your printing bill by half just asking for a job in the right way?  Learn all the tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.  Learn how to choose the right graphics, correct paper, envelope, style, letter fonts.  When on demand printing is best.  Every Secret is included.

Lesson #6:  How to Fulfill.  This session is a practical guide on how to administer your business.  How to set up a computerized fulfilment system, get local families to do all your work for you and run your business (if you wish) from your home.  Learn how and why to use low and variable overheads, yet give one day turn-around delivery.  Learn when to choose delivery services, to fulfill yourself or build your own system…or when to simply fulfill via the Internet.

Lesson #7:  How to Finance.  Learn all you’ll need about the financial end, of the business, how to control physical or online inventory, keep overheads down, check ad results, get 30 day free credit and stay on top of your business.  Learn 11 hazards to avoid and tricks to stay profitable without a daily accountant.  The course and manual contain all these secrets and more.  The computer/internet workshop personalizes the knowledge so you can get started.

What Me “Crazy”?


Is it crazy for a boomer to start a pinnacle career?

Last week a reader sent me this note.

Gary, I am a fervent recipient of your daily messages. The first go to in the AM. I have done marketing for the past four years, including contacting customers and producing brochures.  I also sold advertising in the brochure.  I am interested in SNAP for my county.  BUT, I am 77 years of age.  Am I crazy to consider this?

My reply might help you, if you are asking any similar question about whether to start something new… or not.

I wrote:

Thanks for getting in touch.  I am delighted to know that you are tuning in every day.

In answer to your question….” Am I crazy”, here is a photo I took while hiking this weekend with two friends. We have been hiking for years.  Both amigos are well into their 70s and there is no reason for any of us to stop hiking now.

gary scott

My friend on the right (Bob Gandt) is 78 and just finished his best seller “Angels in the Sky”.

He does some other awesome stuff.  See about his comments on age and work at a message sent last year about mastery.

Be sure to click on the Youtube link www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJXJCrGLcS0

A New York Times article last week “Asked About Retiring, They Have a Simple Answer: Why?” (1) helps answer your question as well.

This article is worth a read as it tells the story of 1.5 million Americans over the age of 75, who are still in the paid work force, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Read about Judge Jack B. Weinstein still on the bench at age 96 who says “Retire? I’ve never thought of retiring. I’m a better judge, in some respects, than when I was younger. I don’t remember names. But I listen more. And I’m more compassionate. I see things from more angles. If you are doing interesting work, you want to continue.”

The work gives the judge a purpose to rise at 5 to exercise and commute at 7am to work each day.

Adolfo Calovini, 82, is a New York City high school teacher. He married late and has young children so the income is part of his motivation, but he says: “To me, teaching is about life. This is what I do. I can’t see a time when I wouldn’t.”

At 88, neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel who heads his own research laboratory says, “I like what I do,” he said. “Keeping engaged keeps you intellectually alive. I wouldn’t be surprised if it enhanced longevity. “If you are healthy and enjoy your work, continue. At the very least, it gives you additional income. Even if you don’t need it, the money can be for your kids and grandchildren.”

This seems to be a fact with Kandel. Many are surprised that he is 88.

Dr. Laura Popper, 71, a Manhattan pediatrician, says she works because her profession is a key to her identity.

“I wanted to be a doctor since I was 4 — why would I give that up?” she said. “If you’re a surgeon and you reach a certain age, you have to stop. With pediatricians, as long as you have your marbles, there’s no reason to.”

When her husband raises the subject of retirement, she tells him he would have to take her to a psychiatric hospital the next day.

She says, “There’s no part of me that wants to retire. If you have something you love, there’s nothing else.”

Here are three questions to ask that can help you decide if you should engage in a career past age 65.

#1: Look at the activity.  There is no list of specific jobs suited to pinnacle careers, but careers that use skill and brainpower are more likely to succeed than work that requires brawn and endurance.

#2: Look at who decides when to work.  Mandatory retirement rules can force a shut down of some jobs. Dr. Kandel heads his own research laboratory and is a Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist, so no one is telling him, “it’s time to retire”.

Do not start something that someone else can shut down when you are just hitting your stride!

#3: Look at the possibility of having younger help.  Dr. Popper has been able to continue because she’s self-employed. She co-owns her medical practice, and owns her office space. She has the freedom to adjust her working conditions has slowed down. She sees about half as many patients as she previously did and lets the other co-owner, her partner, who is 25 years younger, take up the slack.

Merri and I are well into our 70s, but our third partner, our webmaster and son-in-law, is in his 50s and can do more as we choose to do less.

The mantra we have preached for decades at this site and before is “Turn your passion into profit”.

Ask yourself, “even if this does not generate great income in the first months,  Will I find this career fulfilling”?

Will this career make your life better?  Will it bring purpose and a reason to arise early and get going every day?

This is an era where the value of our experience is worth more than the cost of attaining it.

If you feel healthy, interested and incited, go for it.  I say incited rather than excited because it’s the quiet voice within, you should hear. Listen for the whisper from your soul telling you who you really are and what you can and really want to do.

That voice is the command to follow rather than the outside noise that bombards our inner selves and tries to lead us in directions dictated by uncaring and hidden agendas.

Regards,

Gary

Earn & Do Good

Live anywhere.  Earn everywhere. Make a difference.

Here’s an old idea that offers profits in a new and different way.   This is an idea that’s good for a community you choose as well as those involved… and it can generate $11,835 a month of profit… or maybe even more.

This report shares this new “old idea”, how to gain freedom, live where you chose, be an important part of your community, have an outstanding income and do some good.

Learn how to earn high income in your own back yard.   Choose where you want that back yard to be.

You can create a lifestyle that you previously could only dream.

Gain 7 powerful benefits when you choose to become involved:

Benefit #1: Freedom.   You 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 magazine 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 your children’s sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event.  You have greater control over your earnings and your destiny.  If you want to earn more, 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.  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 small area publisher had started a magazine and was then diagnosed with cancer.  In her darkest hours she was able to continue publishing. See why below.

#2:  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 and having a successful small business helps develop strong community economics.

#3:  Prestige (Near Celebrity Status).  One writer who uses this system said: We get invited to everything because people want our magazine to review their events.  Additionally, we are very well known around town.  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 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 called the “Big Sip”.  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.

#4:  Service  to the Community.   You can even be philanthropic.  One of the magazines using this system 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.  The reader told us that he gets raves about how his magazine 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 hyper local magazine, 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 probably saved his life.  

This type of special benefit may not happen everyday, but once in a lifetime is good enough.

#5:  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.   You can have big-picture perspective without going broke.

#6: 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 who 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.

#7: Tremendous tax benefits.  Many after tax expenditures become tax deductible business expenses. Sometimes you can eliminate federal and state tax altogether.

Why does small niche publishing offers such great potential.

Sam Buffet… or is it Warren Walton?  Hyper local publishing is based on three cherished beliefs that Sam Walton and Warren Buffet shared.

sam buffet

Forbes Magazine listed the 10 wealthiest Americans in an article entitled “The Faces Of Wealth in America”.  Both Buffet and the Walton family were there.

sam buffet

Imagine combining the wealth Walton created with that of Warren Buffet.  You get 150.1 billions dollars… far more than the wealth created by Bill Gates and any other three of the top ten combined… by just these two men.

Sam Buffet and Warren Walton!  What a combination.

So I ask, “Whose footsteps would you like to follow?”

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 Buffet’s company, 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 Wal Mart remains committed not just to expanding the business but to improving the communities.

You can enjoy all these benefits through hyper local publishing because small communities can be places, ideas or ideas within places.

For example Burnie Miller, one publisher who attended a Writer’s Camp that Merri and I conducted, founded Healthtrucker.com

There are many magazines about trucking and for truckers, but Healthtrucker.com is just about trucker health and wellness.  Burnie’s business shares his  adventures losing weight, driving truck, and staying healthy on the road.

The factor that makes publications like this successful are 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 this type of 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 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.

The need for a sense of community is greater than ever before.   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, big publications etc.  Yet publications are of little value 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.  One model of publishing in the course shows how to make up to $11,835 a month… or more for a fully guaranteed investment of just $299.  That’s value… plain and simple.

I already knew the person I call the Warren Buffet of the internet… my webmaster, David Cross.

david-cross-image tags:"2012-4-21"

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.

So half of Buffet’s value equation was there.

Merri’s and my lives have been involved in the second half of this equation.

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 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 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 those people.

Merri

She was able to meet many famous people like author John D. MacDonald, Robert Rauschenberg, and 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.

These personal examples show that a small area publishing business can help you immerse your lifestyle with like minded souls and people who have common interest from all walks of life.

Of course, there is capital gain potential as well.

The major focus of this report looks at how to earn a good income, in some instances, niche magazines can 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, Felix Dennis made $250 million on selling a few small niche area magazines.

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.

Felix did not inherit this either.  His 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.

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 shares the fact that most niche publishers will not make a hundred million dollar capital gains.  He notes 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 you’ll earn this type of capital gains with a small niche publishing business, I mention this fact because the possibility does exist.

Purpose, income and lifestyle opportunities are the main reasons 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 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.

A more typical example of small niche magazine publishing are Dave and Sherry Johnson who attended one of our Self Publishing courses.  I discovered that Dave and Sherry published a couple of magazines in North Carolina when they enrolled for the course… but what I did not know was the value of what they had developed in publishing small town community magazines.

Dave started as a media marketer and has sold most media including radio, cable television, direct mail, magazine, yellow pages, newspaper and Internet.

He enjoyed great success until times turn sour during the 2007 recession as they did for so many.  Being under the gun, Dave and Sherry lost everything so they moved to Asheboro, North Carolina and started their own magazine which has risen from success to success.

Time and Place

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… 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.

asheboro

This is the issue they published on their 5th year anniversary of Asheboro Magazine (1).

The Johnson’s hyper local business created enormous freedom as well.

When they fell in love with Ecuador, their move there was supported by a new small area magazine when they created Cuenca Expat Life (2).

snap magazine

When I heard this story and read their magazine I let no moss gather beneath my feet and began testing ways to help subscribers publish their own hyper local publication… profitably… immediately… in just a month or two.

Part of this course shows how to create income with a Small Niche publication.

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 also worked with a SNAP magazine in Spain that had Latin American potential.

snap

This is an English language magazine in Spain that has South American expansion possibilities.

The owner stated that this magazine is earning around $250,000 a year.

The Sentinella (3) is an English magazine on the Costa del Sol, known as the ‘little mag that fits in your bag’.  It is aimed at expats who have moved abroad for a better life. The Sentinella has been established in Spain for more than seven and a half years. There are now five magazines operating along the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and the coast of Almeria.

We have combined all these experiences into a 31 step checklist that can help help you publish your own small niche magazine.

Your own small magazine allows you to put your desire to profit through writing to work.

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 as much as $11,835 a month.

Merri and I see hyper local magazines as one of the most important services we have been able to bring to our readers… ever.  This service helps our readers write to sell… to enjoy working with like minded souls and to bring a positive influence to communities.

We tested the market and found that the principles of this type publishing are so powerful that it is possible to achieve success even in the most adverse circumstances.  Take for example the success story that Perla Crosby has achieved in Sanford Florida.

Benny and Perla Crosby used the course 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 MySanford Magazine (4) magazine began with a great success but as it started to develop, disaster struck.

Here is what Benny Crosby wrote about how the course helped  during her hardest of times:

mysanford magazine

Benny & Perla Crosby from an issue of Mysandfordmagazine.

I might add that my wife Perla, even during some dark moments during two cancer 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.

You can earn this type of income by building a hyper local publication focused on what you love.

Hyper local does not have to focus on a place.  It can zero in on a hobby, sport, profession or common interest.  What do you love?  Rare cars?  You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love.  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 environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty?  Would you like to help wipe them out?  Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to travel?  Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?

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 in the process and live wherever you please!   You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.

You can publish about almost anything that interests you.

Take the small area magazine Rebel Riders… “because all of us have a little renegade in us”, a perfect example of how focused on a passion one can be.

snap mag

This magazine is about closely focused as a publication can get… not just for riders, but for rebel riders… in Central Florida.   Advertisers include three full pages from attorneys… “Been in an accident – Call us”.  There are many biking events and bike fests… meets and swaps advertised.  Dozens of bars and restaurants that cater to bikers have ads.  Several motorcycle dealers, sales, repairs and custom cycle shops.  American Legion Post 35 (“For God and Country”) has an ad.  There is a full page for Twisted Tea (“True Iced Tea taste”), a couple of insurance agencies, one financial planner and Theater X (“adult novelties and DVDs”).

Small area publishing can also help you travel, even have an international lifestyle so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere.  This is especially valuable if you love to travel.  For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live and published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.

Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country.  Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years.  We earned by publishing our experiences there.

Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA.  We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren.  We still write (and publish) about what we love and are doing!   In each phase of our lives, the idea of tight focus has allowed us to move and live where we desired.

Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel.  Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business.  Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event

Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection.  Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution.  You do not need a license to publish.  There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.  The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.

The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.

We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business.  This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique.  We started our publishing business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves.  We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person.  When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.

May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.

The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself.   The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.

I have created this course in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies.  You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes.  All his flying became tax deductible!

You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.

This course is not theoretical.  It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away.  I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.

I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public.  We conducted a course charging $2,000.  Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.

For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:  “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it.  We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction.  Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Get the Wind Behind You


Success is easiest when the wind’s behind our back.  This means there is good news for boomers who are aware of changing winds with the idea of retirement at 65.

wsj.com

Here is some goods news for Boomers.  This chart from the Wall Street Journal article “Working at 85: The Idea of Retirement Is Dying in Japan” (1) shows that the US has the second largest proportion of people in the workforce who are aged over 65.  I’ll explain why this is good news in a moment.

First, let’s ask, “Why 65?”   The concept of retirement, as we know it, began with a political ploy in the late 1800s.  Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck of Germany announced that he would pay a pension to any nonworking German over age 65.   Sneaky politician that he was, he knew that hardly anyone lived to be 65 at the time.  Politics or not, this set the arbitrary world standard for the age when people retired.  The trick worked.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned from this and used this age when he pushed for the creation of the Social Security Act of 1935.  This idea of needing to quit being productive at age 65 grew and still worked because the the average life expectancy then was 61 years.

Now the wind is not behind the back of Social Security.  When the program was created in 1935 there was a ratio of approximately 37 workers for every 1 retiree. Today, the ratio is is less than 3 workers per 1 retiree.

Compounding the problem is the increase in the average life expectancy.  Even though the US life expectancy has fallen behind many other developed nations, the expected age of 61 has lengthened to almost 80 years.  Yet the idea of a retirement age remains at 65.

This compounds the problem.  There are more beneficiaries versus workers and these beneficiaries are receiving payments for much longer periods of time.  This is a demographic gale blowing against Social Security.

A big chunk of the world’s population arrange their entire lives based on a cheap political trick that the nation can no longer pull off.  There is a demographic gale blowing against Social Security.  The numbers no longer work. Fortunately they do not need to.

Here is the good news for Boomers.

The WSJ.com article “Working at 85: The Idea of Retirement Is Dying in Japan” shows how the changes in the winds of retirement are causing the  Japanese government, concerned about the costs of supporting an aging populace, to encourage companies to keep older people in the workforce longer and offering subsidies to some that employ workers over 65.

The article says (bolds are mine):  Companies typically figure they are dumping high-price workers who are past their prime. But some are realizing that can be shortsighted, especially in a sales business when the people walking out the door have client lists that took decades to build. Who better to target consumers in their senior years than other seniors?

Daiwa Securities Group Inc. used to set an age limit of 70 for veteran salespeople working under contract. It recently scrapped the limit.  “This will make it possible for us to have more consultants in the age range of 60 to 80, which is similar to the generation that holds the largest financial assets,” says the brokerage’s chief executive, Seiji Nakata.

The clue in this article about Japan that can help us in North America is the sentence highlighted in bold. “Who better to target consumers in their senior years than other seniors?”

With the rapid technological change taking place on earth, we live in an era where the value of our experience is worth more than the cost of getting it.  Previous generations were worn out when they reached 65.  Today, we can be in perfect health, active, alert and strong, ready to go.  Even if we are not physically strong, who cares?  Muscles are no longer a highly paid asset in any industry except sports.  Intelligence, experience, contacts, value, grit and willingness to work and get the job done are the qualities that receive premium payments now.

As Boomers, we are part of the second largest and wealthiest demographic group that has ever existed.  We are in the best position of all to succeed in this marketplace.  The wind is behind our back.

The fact that the US has the second largest proportion of people in the workforce who are aged over 65, means that Boomers still need help and this problem creates opportunity.

These facts give Boomers a chance to create a pinnacle career connected to their personal destiny.  This is such a benefit because when we are connected to our destiny… to some tiny, but important part we can add to humanity’s existence we gain fulfillment as well as financial stability.

Merri and I have learned this fact as we followed our destiny and shifted the focus our activity again and again to what we loved.  We actually retired in the traditional Western business sense 20+ years ago.  We sold our print publishing business, went to Ecuador, bought a hacienda and lived with a yatchak and his apprentices, to learn more about maintaining natural good health.  We had no business plans but started a small website because this is what we loved doing.  That website grew to be the largest about expat living in Ecuador.

Then our destiny led us to return to Smalltown USA in 2009 and the focus of our writing shifted again.  Now we have AIRBNB rentals  and grow trout.  Plus our website contains well over 6,000 posts that have been sent to tens of thousands of readers every day.  Most of our readers are Boomers, because who can understand the wants, needs and desires of a Boomer, better than a Boomer.  We are still serving and enjoying doing what we love.

A pinnacle career is a destiny career.  Follow the path that nature sends you.  Look for a wind behind your back.   Serve… doing something that is good for a community of like-minded souls that brings you a satisfying and financially rewarding non-retirement.

Follow those steps and I promise… you’ll feel bright and anxious to get going every day.  A Pinnacle Career is a better alternative to retirement at 65.

One Week’s Effort – Ten Year’s Pay

Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report about financial secrets.

gary scott

The report sold well and generated an immediate and excellent income.  Now it’s long out of date.  I just have this one copy left, stored in my archives.

However those ten days of effort, three decades ago, started a chain of events that creates residual income for Merri and me to this very day.  Even better the ten days effort should continue to create income for us for many years more.

Learn how to use brief efforts that create extra income now and continue to pay you for years… even though you don’t do a thing after the first effort.   These lessons even show how to generate cash flow that lasts so long, your heirs will enjoy the income too.

Learn how to do a little work for a lot of income, that comes in, again and again.   See nine secrets below on how a small independent at-home-business can generate long tail income (money that comes in again and again) from one small effort.

Learn how to easily gain the most important things in life;  freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction… with very small amounts of money and time.

Here are five of nine secrets, for creating long tail wealth:

Secret #1: The business must enjoy the multiple effect.  A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis.  Each venture in the business needs to make a huge return to start and then continue generating earnings year in and year out.

Secret #2: The business needs to be more than its owner.  It 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: The money making system must have a purpose beyond money and be enjoyable and fun!  Sad but true, most of us 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 I learned about making and keeping wealth was that those who were richest absolutely loved what they were doing and felt they were doing something that was good!  Money was of secondary importance to their effort.  And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more!

Secret #4: The money making system must be flexible.  No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.  The business must have resilience-so if times turn tough, they can evolve and turn change into even more income.

Secret #5: The business must be able to start small, but grow large.  I learned that business ideas work best with small starts to begin and can be operated on either a full or part time basis.  Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time, it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it can grow larger with higher income.

The way to make money in this way is by publishing to sell!   Almost anyone can make more than respectable income when they publish to sell.  Publishing to sell fits all five secrets above, even if you never write a thing.  We’ll look at the other four secrets in a moment.

Publishing is not writing!  Publishing is the business that makes money from writing.  You may have read or heard about the great wealth good writers can make.  Guess what?  Writers make that money from a royalty paid to them by a publisher.  The royalty is normally 15% of the book’s wholesale sales, after returns.  Guess who makes the other 85%?  Guess whose decisions make or break the fortunes of the writer?  The publisher!

Publishing to sell is a business where you get the 85% from publishing,  PLUS MORE… and have extra earnings that just keep keep rolling in, year after year.

Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering words.

“Publishing-to-Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important valuable information, but also leads to the sale of other publications, services or products.

For example, Merri and I used publishing to sell in Ecuador.  We published a report about living in Ecuador.  This was an informative report that helped thousands of readers move there.  The report also outlined the benefits of our Ecuador real estate tours and Super Thinking Spanish courses.  That particular effort starting in 1995 created a million dollar business that still generates earnings to this day even though we have not been in Ecuador for many years.

Here are other examples.  One publisher who used the course, Joe Culbertson, D.C.  is a chiropractor.  Eating junk food creates numerous problems including difficulties in the spine so Dr. Joe created a simple use-at-home spinal device to help the spine.  He published a series of articles about the spine.  Those articles helped sell a three part book he published  Secrets of the Spine: The True Mind/Body Connection.  The book helped him sell his spinal device.

Another smart self publisher, Jamie Alexander, who used our self publishing course, has a cooking school.

Jamie started her professional baking career at age 20 when she apprenticed under the best-selling cookbook author, Nathalie Dupree.  When she was living in Paris, she studied at LaVarenne, the Cordon Bleu Cooking School and with the pastry chef of Maxim’s.  Her health problems created by high blood sugar levels caused her to have a passion about baking in a healthy way.  She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.

You have my word for it, these cakes are delicious and there is not an ounce of sugar or white flour! What a treat!

jamie alexander

Jamie Alexander’s recipes are for sale at Amazon.com and include “Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownies”, “Reid’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Quinoa Brownies”, “Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa Cake” and “New Orleans Espresso-Infused Chocolate Quinoa Cake”.  See all five Jamie Alexander quinoa stevia recipes below. 

The sale of these recipes are really valuable and worthwhile, but they also help sell Jamie’s New Orleans cooking classes!

You can write what you publish to sell or publish what others write to sell.   Some writers, like myself write and also publish.  That’s because 85% of the income from printed publications normally goes to the publisher.

You can earn as a writer.  You can earn as a publisher.  You can publish, or write, or both!  You can also generate long term income from what your publication sells.

Publishing to sell can create outrageously high long term income for little work and you can do it from your home, in an RV or even while cruising or living on a boat or traveling.  It is possible to generate large amounts of extra income month after month, year after year.

Publishing to Sell has become better, much… much better.   Our early success above (the ten days of effort that still earns 30 years later) began when our publishing-to-sell business was in print.   When the Internet became popular and we created a website (in the 1990s), the cost of publishing risk went into a steep dive due to a new advertising medium called Pay Per Click (PPC).  Prior to PPC the biggest part of every publishing venture was paper, printing and postage.  If a publication was mailed, and not read, the paper, the printing and the postage still had to be paid for.  The cost of sending publications which were never opened, created a huge risk.

PPC means that a publisher today only pays from the delivery of a publication when it is opened.  This dramatically reduces upfront cost and risk.

Freedom is the most important benefit.

In the 1970s, I had what I thought was a good business but to be honest I could never get ahead.  I always seemed to be in debt.  The harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in.  My financial situation robbed me of freedom.

Then I discovered publishing to sell.  Since then our publishing-to-sell business has brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desire, more houses than we could use (we rent them), two tropical beachfront homes and a Tuscan inspired villa in the mountains overlooking a roaring creek, a 250 acre farm and a 900 acre plantation in Ecuador, plus more than enough money in the bank.

Our income exceeds our expense.

We do not have one penny of debt and we have as much leisure as we choose.

We are free to work when we want and can decide when we want to slow down and relax.

We live where we like and most important, we arise from bed without an alarm, work without undue stress and have fun every day!

My wife, Merri, and I are our own bosses and do what we love.  We have learned that through publishing to sell, we can accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community.  In short, we get paid helping make ourselves and the world a better place.

What do you love?  Rare cars?  You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love.  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 environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty?  Would you like to help wipe them out?  Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.

Are you a golfer?  Do you love to travel?  Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?

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 in the process and live wherever you please!   You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.

Publishing to sell can also be international so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere.  This is especially valuable if you love to travel.  For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live so published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.

Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country.  For example, there is currently a huge growth in domestic tourism.  Self publishers are in a position to do something about it… by selling U.S. knowledge everywhere!

Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years.  We earned by publishing our experiences gained in each place.

Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA. We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren.  We still publish to sell!  In each phase of our lives, the publish-to-sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired.

Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel.  Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible!  You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business.  Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event

For example, you’ll see how when we reached retirement age, we slowed down our self publishing business but still earned $2,404725.98, tax free, over the next ten years.

Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.  Other benefits come in the form of legal protection. Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution.  You do not need a license to publish.  There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.  The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.

The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.

We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell business.  This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique.  We started our publishing business together.  Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves.  We began working at home.  Today, though we have tens of thousands of readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person.  When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.

May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.

The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself.  The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!

This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose!  It covers the five secrets I mentioned above and the four additional secrets below:

Secret #6:  How to gain 1,000% returns.  See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing.  Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them.  This online course contains many case studies.  Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.  His cost was only three cents, his selling price $12.50!

Secret #7:  How to create and market your product or find products to sell.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets.  See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

For example, the course shows how one friend, before the Internet, never wanted to write and decided instead to publish on cassette tape.  He later switched to webinars.  He started part time and built a career that brought in millions and brought him to know some of the most interesting people.  Now of course publishers who do not want to write can use the internet.

Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing blunders and what to do about each.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune.  How to create your own ads.  When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth.  See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity.  I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29.  I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.

Secret #8: When to print, how to print and when to go online only.  How to print and fulfill.  Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.  Learn tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.

Secret #9: How to compute and use the Internet.  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 illiterate.  Merri and I have proven this!  The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do.   Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.

The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business.  For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net.  We unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation.  This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.

However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.

I have created this course in an easy to understand style.  Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail.  We share all, how we have done it ourselves.  The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies.  You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes. All his flying became tax deductible!

You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.

This course is not theoretical.  It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.

The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away.  I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.

I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public.  We conducted a course charging $2,000.  Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.

For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said:  “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth the cost!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it.  We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction.  Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn in the online course:

Lesson #1:  A Day in the Life of a Publisher.  See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.  This gave them incredible tax protection, took them on many free, exotic trips, widened their perspective and field of friendships, helped them keep the money they were making in their fields and gave them a backup business that they loved for retirement.

Lesson #2:  How to Create Your Product.  Learn 11 steps in creating the perfect product.  Understand how to review ideas, test focus, aim at markets. See why you don’t have to write anything if you don’t want to!  Learn where and how to get your data and get others to write for you almost FREE.

Some products can just be lists, simple one page photocopied ideas or names and addresses. Understand when to print, record (on audio or video) and when to transfer through the Internet. Learn how to choose the format that suits you, full or part time.

Lesson #4:  How to Publish to Sell.  Learn how marketing is the key to successful publishing and how to turn pennies into dollars with good marketing focus.  Gain samples of winning marketing pieces.  Learn 21 frequently committed marketing mistakes and what to do about each.

Lesson #5:  If You Print-How to Print?  Did you know that you can reduce your printing bill by half just asking for a job in the right way?  Learn all the tricks of the trade, how to get the best quality at the lowest price, why to avoid the biggest printer in town and why to avoid the franchise printers.  Learn how to choose the right graphics, correct paper, envelope, style, letter fonts.  When on demand printing is best.  Every Secret is included.

Lesson #6:  How to Fulfill.  This session is a practical guide on how to administer your business.  How to set up a computerized fulfilment system, get local families to do all your work for you and run your business (if you wish) from your home.  Learn how and why to use low and variable overheads, yet give one day turn-around delivery.  Learn when to choose delivery services, to fulfill yourself or build your own system…or when to simply fulfill via the Internet.

When I Am 95


When I am 95, I expect and plan to be active turning a passion into profit.

We are surrounded by a culture that connects concepts of retirement to the age of 65.  This old thought is not in keeping with our modern technological age where our experience is worth more than the cost of getting it.

We can see examples every day of how age does not have to stop us from doing what we love. Last week an article at this site, “”How to Avoid Damage from Unfilled Expectations” (1) looked at an example of how to live it up at 100.

Mathilde Freund, aged 100, rises at 5 a.m. then takes the bus to Fordham College as she has studied literature, psychology and philosophy for 40 years, as well as continuing to run a flea market business.

Today’s example is Charles Eugster.

BBC article

Image from the BBC.com  article “Want to age well – how about never retiring?” (2).

The article explains how Charles Eugster walks up a steep hill for 10 minutes as he heads to his office most mornings, then has a half hour train ride, followed by a 10-minute tram journey.

At age 97 he works at updating his website, writing, and conducting research into aging.

This dentist quit his practice at age 75 and decided to focus on his fitness.  He now holds the indoor 200m and outdoor 400m sprint world records for men over 95.

The BBC article quotes Eugster: “I’m not chasing youthfulness. I’m chasing health. People have been brainwashed to think that after you’re 65, you’re finished. But retirement is a financial disaster and a health catastrophe,” he says.

As the baby boomer generation retires and pension systems falter there will be increased demand on non pension ways to overcome old-age poverty.  We can be part of a transformation by shedding old thought.

Do not let the foibles of the past define you!

Use new thinking instead.   Combine principles of natural health, experience and technology.  Do what we love… earn from the process… and help the world… at any age.

Secret of the Hogberry

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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

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

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is the only way to attain this report.  Intermittent fasting can make your life better. It works best when you use the nutritional, exercise and purification tips outlined in these three reports.  As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure  that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you.  The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made a special offer.

I have created three shamanic health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.

The Secret Chargemaster Revealed

Few places can destroy health and ruin a lifetime of savings faster than a hospital.  We are at risk from pocketbook surgery and the incredibly dangerous “Chargemaster”.   See below why chargemasters were normally kept secret, how a 2018 federal law requires their disclosure and how to gain protection from their abuse.

How can it be that medical costs are so high? Why is it so difficult to figure out the charge for a medical procedure?

The government in trying to help answer these questions began requiring hospitals from Jan. 1, 2019 to post their chargemaster lists.

These enormous lists of products and services ranging from a single aspirin up to a complicated surgery does little to answer these questions.

This very weak attempt to create transparency only provides data that is difficult to decipher and is mind-boggling for the consumer.

Chargemasters can include tens of thousands of items and procedures, with technical names and abbreviations that few can understand.

Plus when one goes into the hospital no one knows exactly what items and procedures will be necessary since treatment can vary widely based on the age and health and condition.

So listing the chargemaster isn’t helpful or meaningful, but simply gives hospitals one more excuse for outrageous costs… “but we listed what these costs”.

Modern American health care is under pressure.  Despite horrendous costs, the system is faltering.  At times the care is more dangerous than the illness.  For example hospitals are the worst place to have a heart attack.  The University of North Carolina, did a study and found that 40% of the patients who had hearts attacks in the hospital died before being discharged.  (The study compared that with only a 4% death rate for those who had heart attacks outside the hospital.)

Plus it was recently revealed that medical endoscopy scopes in hospitals were infecting patients with deadly drug-resistant bacteria.  The facts about this had not been previously disclosed.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that hospital-acquired infections alone kill 99,000 people each year.  Here is an even worse hospital mortality fact.

CDC Stats

Click on image.

The image above shows a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.  Hospital-acquired infections alone kill 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital is worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a 2013 report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is because of the secrets in the chargemaster and the people who do not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen .  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

hospital bill

The hospital bill above is part of a story about a $110,000 infection and why hospital “chargemasters” are often secret.  This story tells how one person with resistant devastating infection ran up a $110,000 hospital bill only to find that Medicare would only pay $2,300 from treatment of infection.

Secret of the Chargemasters

Being in a hospital can kill as well as cure.  There are odds on that.  What is more certain is that hospitals can kill our finances.

The ‘average’ cost of hospital care is rising because the leading hospitals are front runners in figuring out how to amass market power so they can  raise prices and decrease competition.  A codeine pill that costs $20 at a hospital costs 50 cents at Rite-Aid or Walgreens.  Hospitals have “chargemasters” a price list created by each hospital, that typically has more than ten thousand entries, so almost nothing — even an aspirin, a bag of IV fluid, or a visit from a physical therapist to help a patient get out of bed — is free.  However, those lists are usually secret.

Hospital Failure

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own.  The very people, institutions and establishments that  we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health.  There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient shamanic wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They are concise and to the point.  In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our shamanic health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy –  self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

“Sunski” combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

shaman

The “Sunski” report has been 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you…  years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Especially when time is NOT on our side.  We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment  to tell you the truth).

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

This report on nutrition also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.  The second report looks at purification and detoxification.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

For example this third report unveils one exercise that is a nutritional trick  that has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  The report  reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is what others have said about this information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two Health & Wealth Tips

Here is one of the most important tips for your health & wealth.  Soothe the Vagus Nerve.

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.06.39 AM

Image from article about the Vagus Nerve at Lifespa.com

Fight or flight syndrome is one of the worst problems we face in today’s stressed filled world.  Stress causes us to make bad investing and business decisions, drive too fast, gain weight and a myriad of other problems.

We are told that if we think positive we’ll feel positive.  Is the idea scientifically sound?  A study conducted at the University of North Carolina shows that the processor of positive thoughts inside our bodies is the vagus nerve.  The vagus nerve originates at the brain stem and travels through the chest where it spreads out in multiple directions to innervate organs in the neck, thorax and abdomen, effectively connecting your brain to your lungs, digestive tract and, most notably, your heart.  This nerve controls the parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest and digest” nervous system.  Not only does it calm and rejuvenate the body, it balances the the life-saving, but degenerative “fight or flight” nervous system.

This nerve is such a powerful carrier of information that according to a New York Times article, “Sudden Stress Breaks the Heart”, (1)  a sudden emotional stress – from grief, fear, anger or shock – can cause heart failure.

The article says:  “A death in the family, an armed robbery, a car accident, a biopsy procedure and a surprise party were among the events that sent 18 women and one man to coronary care units in Baltimore with chest pains and weakening of the heart, according to an article in The New England Journal of Medicine.”

Try Tulsi.  One way to fortify the Vagus Nerve according to Dr. John Douillard at Lifespa.com is to use one of the most renown medicinal herbs of India, Tulsi Holy Basil.  This herb has been used for centuries to promote better sleep, immunity and stress resilience, support strength and stamina, and to enhance calm and clarity. (2)

A second approach is to make sure you have enough Omega3.

Evidence from numerous areas of research have shown that omega 3 oils have a significant ability to support Heart Rate Variability, HRV which reflects a healthy nerve-heart relationship.  The DHA component of Omega3, has been shown to improve vagal nerve tone which is a crucial part of healthy heart rhythms.

The vagus responds to our thoughts, both positive and negative and connects the thoughts to the major organs.  Impulses in the vagus nerve assists the adrenal glands during ‘fight or flight’ situations by stimulating the release of adrenaline in the brain.   The vagus nerve also activates the calming of the body after perceived dangers have passed.

Good vagal tone helps us be happier, less stressed and less likely to suffer from depression.  Our memories are better.  We can focus our attention and have increased brain-power.   The vagus nerve also plays a part in balanced insulin production as well as cardiovascular health and immune responses.

Due to the connection between the brain and the digestive system, nutrition is an important foundation of vagal nerve activity.  Omega-3 fatty acid intake can boost mood and vagal tone, and the presence of symbiotic digestive bacteria can positively affect the action of the nerve.  When we improve vagal tone, we help reduce stress.  This important connection between the brain and the heart helps strengthen the immune system, and helps us to feel better about everything we are doing and feeling.

OM3 – 6 Ratio – A Matter of Life & Death

The Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio.  An imbalance in this ratio has been shown to contribute to an incredible array of deadly disease.  Contributors to the imbalance are everywhere and often hidden.

omega 3

A hidden killer.

An abstract published at NCBI’s (a branch of the National Institutes of Health) website (1) suggests that humans evolved on a ratio of about 1 to 1 and that Western diets today have a ratio of 15/1 or more.   This promotes diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Increasing omega-3  helps prevent many diseases such as cardiovascular disease colorectal cancer, breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and asthma.

Getting the ratio balanced is difficult because soybean oil (7 to 1 ratio), olive oil (13 to 1) and corn oil (49 to 1) are used in so many snack and fast foods.  The ubiquitous soybean oil alone represents an astounding 20 percent of the calories in the American diet.

Because of this Merri and I take Omega 3 Supplements every day and I asked Kris Vigue (the manufacture of the supplement we use) to write more about his Omega 3 program.

Here is Kris’s report.

Omega 3s reduce CRP and tumor necrosis factor markers for inflammation

By Kris Vigue

Omega 3s reduce CRP and tumor necrosis factor markers for inflammation.

Inflammation affects us all, but it’s imperative that we keep it under control to prevent chronic inflammation from taking over our lives. Unfortunately, the typical American diet consists of far too many omega-6 fatty acids, which are responsible for creating more inflammation within the body. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids within the body should be closer to 1:1, rather than the average 15:1 that most Americans have. Combine that with the effects of stress, sugary foods, environmental toxins, and we have the perfect cocktail for high amounts of inflammation within our bodies.

Higher levels of inflammation within the body have created a myriad of problems. Everything from heart attacks, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases can be linked back to inflammation. While eating wild caught fish such as salmon would be an ideal way to raise your Omega-3 levels, our oceans have become so polluted that eating fish now poses more health risks than benefits. Mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), radioactive substances like strontium, and toxic metals such as cadmium, lead, chromium, and arsenic are typically found in fish.

There is a more convenient solution to raise your Omega-3 blood lipid levels, free of the harmful contaminants that are so prevalent in much of the fish stock available for consumption.

As we’ve learned in the past from one of our Super Thinking speakers, Dr. Jim Vigue, not all Omega-3 supplements are created equal.

We spent 11 months perfecting our formula so that it would enable the user to experience the maximum benefits that come from Omega-3s. After three years of testing, we are still absolutely convinced that it is the highest quality Omega-3 supplement on the market and the results our customers are getting have been tremendous.

The difference between our product and other fish oil supplements, is that our formula has a very powerful combination of krill oil and calamarine oil, the powerful natural antioxidant astaxanthin, vitamin D and a proprietary antioxidant blend. Our blend enters the cells with much higher efficiency than other products on the market.

The key with any Omega-3 supplement is to get the blood level of Omega-3s at a level that helps offset many of the diseases of aging, including heart disease, diabetes, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and even some cancers. Research has shown that if we can get Omega-3 index (omega-3 blood lipid levels) around 8%, then we have the change that we will age at less than half the rate as those with an index around 3% (which is where most Americans are).

One of the main reasons why we created Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus was that studies have shown that many of the current Omega-3/fish oil supplements on the market would not raise a consumer’s index level to the levels needed to experience the true benefits of the nutrients. In one study, the Omega-3 index was measured in 704 individuals, some were taking fish oil supplementation and some were not. Only 1% of the group not taking fish oil had an Omega-3 index of 8%. However in the group that was taking fish oil, only 17% had an Omega-3 Index above 8%. That means that 83% of people in the study taking fish oil were NOT getting to the goal!

Athlete’s Best uses the ultra-pure Neptune Krill Oil as one of our ingredients and NKO has been shown to dramatically reduce inflammation within the body. One of the most useful markers of inflammation is the presence of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood. Neptune Krill Oil was examined to see what effect it might have on chronic inflammation as measured by CRP in patient’s blood.

In this random, double blind study, 90 patients with chronic inflammation as measured by elevated blood CRP were divided into two equal groups. The first group received 300 mg per day of Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) while the second received a placebo. Before the study began, all patients refrained from taking any pain medication except acetaminophen and any supplements of foods containing high levels of Omega-6 for two weeks. During the study, blood samples were taken to measure serum CRP.

After just 7 days, the Neptune Krill Oil group had reduced their CRP levels by an average of 19.3% while the placebo group increased their CRP levels by 15.7%.

After only 14 days, the NKO group had reduced their CRP levels by 29.7% while the placebo group had increased their CRP by 32.1%.

Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus contains large amounts of phospholipids, potent antioxidants including astaxanthin, vitamin D, and a high ratio of pure Omega-3s from NKO & calamarine oil. Phospholipids protect cell membranes from injury; the Omega-3’s EPA and DHA trigger secretion of anti-inflammatory biochemicals; and astaxanthin inhibits production of pro-inflammatory biochemical.

Initially designed for athletes, we’ve seen this product benefit everyone who has continued its use. Continuing use is important as the body cannot produce Omega-3 fatty acids on its own. Studies have shown that the continued use of marine-derived Omega-3 supplementation has a significant lowering effect on inflammation markers within the body; in both those suffering from chronic inflammation and healthy individuals.

Benefits of Omega 3

Omega 3 is important for longevity and good natural health.

Research has shown that high Omega-3 Index values are related to slow rates of “cellular aging.”

“No nutrient is more important for decreasing cardiovascular death – and more lacking – than omega-3.”  Bernadine Healy, MD  Cardiologist and Past President of American Heart Association  – Past Director of the NIH – Past Director of the Red Cross.

She concludes:   “Before long, your personal Omega-3 Index just could be the new cholesterol – the number you want to brag about.  Omega-3 content in red blood cells is a strong predictor cardiovascular disease.”

Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with higher rates of:

* Heart Disease, including:

* Sudden Cardiac Death (Primary Cardiac Arrest)

* Mortality from Congestive Heart Failure

* Mortality after Heart Attack

* 2nd Heart Attack

* 1st Heart Attack in those with High Triglycerides/Low HDL 2nd Stroke Cellular Aging

*  Depression (Major Depressive Disorder) Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, Inflammation ,Chronic Joint Swelling, Headaches, Prostate cancer.

In the USA and European Union, the average Omega-3 Index is 4-5%.

In Japan, the average diet is high in Omega-3 and the average Omega-3 Index is 9.5%.

In the USA, sudden cardiac death rates are about 20 times HIGHER than they are in Japan.

The importance of measuring your Omega-3 Index:

Omega Chart

In one study, the Omega-3 index was measured in 704 individuals, some were taking fish oil supplementation and some were not. Only 1% of the group not taking fish oil had an Omega-3 Index  of 8%.

However, in the group that was taking fish oil, only 17% had an Omega-3 Index above 8%.

83% of people in the study taking fish oil were NOT getting to goal!!!

Common fish oils don’t always supplement enough Omega 3.

Overall health can improve with a healthy omega index.  Heart disease is one area where omega-3s are known to benefit.  But there is also the fact that a healthy omega score slows down telomere reduction and cellular aging, limits cognitive decline and helps hold off Alzheimer’s and reduces overall inflammation levels in the body (thereby improving joint pain).

Inflammation is considered a major factor in all the diseases of aging and Omega 3 is involved in the process of reducing CRP (C-Reactive Protein) a major inflammation marker.  Omega 3 can help increase levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower readings of both triglycerides and PSA scores.

I use Athlete’s Best Omega 3 Supplement because it includes vitamin D, the anti oxidant astaxanthin  and a proprietary anti oxidant blend along with the krill oil and calamarine oil.

You can go on the Athlete’s Best website and pick up more information on the product.  A link is below.

The Biggest Benefit of Anti Retirement


Live longer.  Feel Better.  These are two of the biggest anti-retirement benefits, at any age.  An even bigger benefit is knowing that your efforts are worthwhile. 

At some point our connection with a bigger existence craves a contribution to wholeness that’s bigger than our individual part.  We either have the feeling of contribution or not.

If not, the craving for it can bring destruction.  Supermarket counters are lined with magazines of famous people who ignored this fact.  They have all the trappings of success but are often caught in addiction, crime and domestic strife.

Banner for the Center for Reduction of Religious Based Conflicts.

center for reduction of religious conflcit

Ecuadorliving.com and Gary Scott email banner.

Here is an example of contribution.  One of the biggest problems mankind faces today is religious conflict.  One is the “Center for Reduction of Religious Based Conflict” (1).

The founder, Terry Trowbridgem started the center in 1999 after attending one of our Writer’s Camps and we were recently discussing how similar the banners at the Center’s site was to ours.

I wrote: “Terry, I am always surprised at how like minded souls take such different paths and end up in the same place.”

Terry replied:  We’re doing well, now in our fifteenth year.  And, it all started with my attending your initial writer’s course in Orlando.  Terry

Guess how good this made Merri and me feel!   This energized the day, to have made a contribution to something so worthwhile.

The Center’s mission is to reduce and substantially eliminate religious-based conflict in the world by:

• sensitizing the peoples of the world to the very real problem of religious-based conflict in the world, its causes and its costs, and

• second by education – particularly of the children but also of adults – about the problem and by offering a new, unique and realistic long-term approach to it, and

• third by promulgating a practical, long-term solution which goes beyond tolerance – which is the current view as the solution to religious-based conflict – and by demonstrating how to practically and realistically achieve the goal of reducing religious-based conflict in the world.

Events like this make us sure we never want to retire!  Contributions to worthwhile goals bring continual contentment.  

A recent USA Today article “Boomers Want to Keep Working if They Can” (2), points out this importance of worth.  The article tells how many boomers have no intention of retiring.

One 70 year old former corporate executive, mentioned in the article, travels 200 days a year and logs a quarter million miles of flight.  He is quoted as saying  “I love my work. I love what I’m doing. I love it so much that anything else is a distraction, including a vacation.  Not retiring keeps you engaged, interested and interesting.”

One writer, 90 year old Robert Levison, recently finished his fifth book, “Management Savvy”.  He is quoted: “I think the act of retiring in itself is pretty bad, I won’t be as busy as before, but I’ll be busy. Other than family, this is my No. 1 priority.  And the commitment level just keeps escalating.  It’s incredibly rewarding to innovate in a new space while also having major societal impact.”

Levinson still works out on a treadmill every day and has a relationship with an 89 year old lady friend.  One of those five books is about their story: “Full Circle: A Love Story”.

One example, the former CEO of Bausch & Lomb, did not want to really retire so he created a website “fromthegrapevine.com” (3) to pursue his life’s passion: to educate Americans about Israel.

There are numerous other benefits to working because they want to.  Extra money and a feeling of self sufficiency are huge benefits.

Demographics created by longer lifespans, continual war, additional government, reduced purchasing power of currencies, failing pensions, increasing health care costs and a general breakdown in order all create a feeling of instability.  Self sufficiency from being able to contribute helps relieve doubts created by such changing conditions.  Others simply want to switch out of high-stress or dead end, unfullfilling or poor paying jobs.

Most emphasis of careers are placed on the financial aspects. More emphasis should be on the psychological and physiological benefits.  Being paid to strive for a worthwhile goal helps us live longer and better!

In addition, the social view of working has changed.  Prior generations viewed working past retirement as a sign of failure.  Now people see the ability to continue to contribute as a sign of strength and wisdom.

Continued work, full or part time, at a passion that is a worthwhile contribution helps us feel good.   This is the biggest benefit of anti retirement.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

Here I am working poolside in the winter, at our Florida farm.

gary scott

Here I am with our hound Ma, working during the summer at our North Carolina farm.

Learn how to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.  I have been able to earn by writing in Hong Kong, England, the Isle of Man, Dominican Republic and Ecuador to name a few of the place I have lived.  Everywhere I have been… too numerous to share here, I have been able to work.

All I need is my laptop.

That’s all you need too… a laptop to be free!

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

Another benefit is income.   Writing has brought me both our farms, free and clear… plus a lot more.

Another good example of earning potential is my friend Hugh Howey.   He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks.

Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon.com.  This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

Sometimes Hugh and I get together at my  farm and play chess (he beats me badly).

Writers like High are great inspirations.

A couple of years ago Hugh  left Florida, and moved to South Africa.  He had a sailing catamaran built for him and now can sail the world while he continues to write.

Hugh explained it like this: And that’s the miracle of working as a writer: I can do it from anywhere and everywhere. The past few years, I’ve done a lot of writing from airplanes and airports while on business trips abroad.  SAND was entirely written overseas while traveling through seven different countries; I think it’s a better story because of those inspirations.  In upcoming years, I may be writing near your home port.

Hugh’s a super star writer and his success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.  But you do not have to be a million dollar a year earner or a traveler to benefit from writing.

The good news is… you do not need a huge success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing can bring you a life that most people only dream of, as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like Hugh’s rarely explain is the many hours of writing that was devoted before their self published book sales soared.   Hugh, like most writers were journeymen first.  Stardom came later.

Here are sevens secrets that can help you become a journeyman writer. 

The secrets are a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income, freedom and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for more than 40 years, year in and year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably will be for you too.

First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed Merri and me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following our adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

That’s what self publishing can bring, profit, adventure and fulfillment, a great feeling of worth and wonder.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world and work with meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

The seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love this evolution due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted.

Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whiplash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. 

I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues?  You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place?  Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

Be immersed in your passion and get paid well for it. 

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  Extra income, more freedom and fulfillment are usually more than enough enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500. 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity called “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.”  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You can receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in a special “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for the written course and $299 for the recorded workshop.   I’ll send you both the course and the recorded workshop and my course “International Business Made EZ (also $299) all for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

These courses are not theoretical.  They describe, step-by-step, how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business and how we are running this self publishing business right now.   We use the 7Ps today just as we did four decades ago to create a strong annual income.

This correspondence course is for those who would like their own international self publishing micro business for fun and profit. If you want fun, freedom, extra income and fulfillment with your own full or part time writing or want to build your existing business, by writing to sell you can profit from this course.  The course can help who want their own business or who want to have a business together or a family business.  This is the perfect course for those who can no longer find employment, who are looking for ways to earn abroad and who wish to retire and supplement their income.

Whether you are retired, an investor, chiropractor, doctor, dentist, professional or already own your own business, this offers another way to make money, to turn your passion into profit. We guarantee that we have shared all we know to help you start and run your own international business.  Enjoy and live a life of following your Passion to Profit… through writing.

Here is a special offer. 

We provide two emailed courses  “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

You save more than $598 because you also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster David Cross (at no extra cost).

Good Luck With Mount Dora Again


Merri and I seem to garner good luck from our research on upcoming real estate trends.  For years we did London and Isle of Man real estate tours.  Prices absolutely exploded.   We took readers to the Dominican Republic and hit another home run.   Then in the mid 1990s we started bringing readers to Ecuador.  Today Ecuador is ranked by many as the #1 place to retire.

See advertisement about Real Estate Tours in Ecuador

Plus we have always recommended looking for value in Smalltown USA.  This belief led us to Mount Dora.

mt-dora-images tags:"2012-4-20"

Down town Mount Dora.

In 2009 we shifted our focus to the small town of Mount Dora, Florida.  Since then the Smithsonian Magazine ranked Mount Dora in the top 20 small towns in the USA (1).

A USA Today article said in 2013:  The best small towns for retirement ranked four places based on charm, ability to make social connections and ease of living,  Old Saybrook, Conn., Port Townsend, Wash. Beaufort, S.C. and said “While you might not think of culture as a typical small-town draw, many towns offer the rich cultural life desired by Baby Boomers. Mount Dora, Fla., has its multiple cultural venues, with two theaters, including the Mount Dora Center for the Arts, plus many festivals and events on the Town Square.”

In November 2104, The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association recently announced downtown Mount Dora as the first winner of the Florida Great Places — People’s Choice Award. (3)

Now  an article “6 Incredible Up-And-Coming Places To Retire” by Ashley Neglia at Grandparents.com (1) says: When it comes to the best places to retire, we’ve covered prettiest, happiest, and most affordable cities and towns. We’ve even covered which towns have a strong collegiate tie.  Now, we’ve compiled some of the unsung heroes of retirement — those places that don’t always make the national top 10 lists but are a boon for retirees nonetheless.

One thing to note is that many of the towns and cities we included are located in the South, specifically the part of the country known as The Sunbelt. Not everyone needs to retire someplace balmy, but we’ve found that the majority of people seek out warmer climates and are less inclined to want to deal with harsh winter weather, according to research conducted by TopRetirements.com. What’s more, many Southern states are veritable tax havens for retirees. Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama, for example, don’t tax Social Security benefits and have property tax breaks for seniors, according to Kiplinger.

Mount Dora is the highest city in Florida at 184 feet over sea level.  The recognition of this small town is growing large.  Visit and see why Mount Dora is leaving many feeling high!

Gain From the Volatility of the Next Four Years

However America’s politics turn out, one thing is sure.  There will be volatility in stock markets during the next four years.

The first reason markets will bounce has nothing to do with politics or policies.   The market’s downward shift is simply due regardless of the party or the person in office.

Second the new politics will create an uncertain era. Everyone is shaken whether they are pleased with the election or not and nothing frightens markets like uncertainty.

Third we’ll see rising interest rates over the next 48 months. This will push markets down.

Despite these pitfalls, there is a way to profit using the downtrends  to pick up good value shares.

During nearly five decades of global investing I have noticed found that good value strategies increase through bull markets and bear, through good presidents and bad.  The steps to take are simple.

The first tactic is to seek safety before profit.

We can look at Warren Buffett’s investing strategy as an example.  Buffett success is talked about a lot, but rarely does anyone explain how he make so much money.  That was the fact until some researchers really stripped his operation bare.  They looked at everything and learned the deepest of Buffett’s wealth management secrets.  Fortunately they published all in a research paper at Yale University’s website. that reveals important truths about extending wealth.

This research shows that the stocks Buffett chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price – to – book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios).

The second tactic is to maintain staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of outperformance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.  Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio the better the odds of outstanding success.

The Buffett strategy integrates time and value for safety and profit.

A third tactic is using limited leveraging, tactic in the strategy boosts profit.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.   The Yale published research paper shows the leveraging methods used by Warren Buffett to amass his $50 billion fortune.  The researchers found that the returns from Buffett’s investment company, Berkshire Hathaway, far outweighed those achieved by any rival that has operated for 30 years or more.  The research shows that neither luck nor magic are involved.  Instead, the paper shows that Buffet’s success hinges on using leverage at the rate of 1.6.

To sum up the strategy, Buffet uses limited leverage to invest in large purchases of “cheap, safe, quality stocks”.   He limits leverage so he can hold on for very long periods of time, surviving rough periods where others might have been forced into a fire sale or a career shift.

Stated in another way buffet uses logic (buy good value) to have the conviction, wherewithal, and skill to invest with leverage over many decades.

What do we do when we are not Warren Buffett?

May I introduce the Purposeful Investing Course (Pi) for those who want to invest like Warren Buffet, but know they are not.  This course is based on my 50 (almost) years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

Enjoy Extending Wealth

Pi’s mission is to make it easy for anyone to create a three point strategy, like Buffett’s even though they do not have a lot of time for or knowledge about investing.

Pi reveals investing secrets and the sciences that make investing easy, safer, less time consuming and increases the chances of profit.

One secret is to invest with a purpose beyond the cash.  One tactic as mentioned is staying power.  This means not being caught short and having to sell during a period of loss.  This also means having enough faith in a strategy that we stick to the plan.  When we invest with purpose, doing what we love, we enjoy the process more and are more likely to hold on during down times, when most poor investors panic and sell.

Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  They create the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market sector they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.   Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Spanning the Behavior Gap

Behavior gaps are among the biggest reasons why so many investors fail.  Human evolution makes fear the second most powerful motivator.  (Greed is the third.)  Fear creates investment losses due to behavior gaps.  Fear motivates us more strongly than desire.  By nature investors are risk adverse.

Winning investors though embrace risk because they have a plan based on good value.

Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed, so a strategy with purpose is the most powerful of all.

Combine your needs and capabilities with good value secrets and the math to back up your value selections through the Pifolio – The Pi Model Portfolio

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based entirely on good math.

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

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2: Cash flow to price

#3: Earnings to price

#4: Average dividend yield

#5: Return on equity

#6: Cash flow return.

#7: Market history

We follow this research of a brilliant mathematician and have tracked this analysis for over 20 years.    This is a complete and continual study of international major and emerging stock markets.

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.

A country ETF provides diversification and cost efficiency by spreading one simple, even small investment into a basket of equities in a good value stock market.  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 matches this mathematical certainty with my fifty years of experience. This opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

For example 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!  There are currently ten good value (non US) developed markets,  plus 10 good value emerging markets.

Pi shows how to easily create a diversified, worry free portfolio in some of these good value markets using Country Index ETFs.

The current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The 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.  There is so much more to write and 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 you’ll receive the report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Leverage

Pi also explains when leverage provides extra potential without undo risk.  For example in 1986 I issued a report called “The Silver Dip” that showed how to borrow 12,000 British pounds (at almost 1.6 to 1 dollars per pound the loan created US$18,600) and use the loan to buy 3835 ounces of silver at around US$4.85 an ounce.

Silver had crashed, I mean really crashed from $48 per ounce.  As prices decreased from early 1983 into 1986, total supply had fallen to 449.7 million ounces in 1986.  Mine production was restricted by the low prices at this time, with silver reaching a low for this period of $4.85 in May 1986.  Secondary recovery also was constricted by these low prices.

Then silver’s price skyrocketed to over $11 an ounce within a year.  The $18,600 loan was now worth $42,185.

The loan was in pounds and in May 1986 the dollar pound rate was 1.55 dollars per pound.  So the 12,000 pound loan purchased $18,600 of silver.  The pound then crashed to 1.40 dollars per silver.  The loan could be paid off for $13,285 immediately creating an extra $5,314 profit.  The profit grew to $47,499 in just a year.

Conditions for the silver dip have returned.  The availability of low cost loans and silver are at an all time low.  The price of silver has crashed from nearly $50 an ounce to below $14 as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).

silver chart

(Click on chart from Google.com  (1) to enlarge.)   Imagine investing in a spike like this… with leverage!

At the same time the silver gold ratio hit 80, a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I have updated a special report “Silver Dip 2016” about a leveraged silver speculation 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 gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  While working on the report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80 and the price of silver dropped below $14 an ounce, I knew I needed to share this immediately.

I released a new report “Silver Dip 2015” so readers were able to take advantage of these conditions and leverage 1.6 times as a speculation.  That report generated profits as high as 212% and a revised 2017 issue has been produced.

Bless You Canada


Bless you Canada.  You have a great idea and you are using it wisely.

I hope this ideas catches on with other governments.  I doubt that it will, but you and I can gain by using Canada’s good idea in our personal lives.

The Canadian idea could even boost the global economy.   When more active people work in the economy they create a greater supply of goods and services.   Their active earnings increases demand.   More supply and more demand add up to more of everything.  More to have. More to give. More to share.

Before we look at this really smart Canadian idea, I would like to pass on a note from our friend, Candace Newman, the Essential Oil Lady.  She sent me this reminder that her Christmas sale ends December 15, one week from now.  Essential oils make great Christmas gifts. What better time to give frankincense and myrrh?

essential oils

Click to enlarge and go to Canadace’s Christmas sale.

The great Canadian idea is mentioned in a Wall Street Journal article entitled “In Canada, Some Rangers Stay at Their Posts a Long, Long Time” (2) by Alistair Macdonald.

The story tells of  Canadian Rangers who are over the age of 70.  A quote from one ranger, Pvt. Xavier Patrick, explains why the idea makes so much sense.  He says: “Anything younger Rangers can do, I can do”.

The article zooms in on Rinker Lake Firebase, Ontario and says:  Deep in a forest in northern Canada, a radio crackles to life and Pvt. Mike Hunter is ordered to stand down and return to base.  “Shame, I was up for it,” said Pvt. Hunter, of this Canadian army training exercise. Pvt. Hunter is aged 79, and on maneuvers.
Old soldiers never die. In Canada, some don’t want to retire either.

Pvt. Hunter is a member of the Rangers, a 5,000-strong, mainly indigenous army reserve unit that harks back to North America’s frontier past and is used to patrol Canada’s vast north. In a unit with no mandatory retirement limit, Pvt. Hunter’s age is no exception; in January, 92-year-old Abraham Metatawbin was decorated for 27 years of service.

These rangers, some well past 70, do not sound tired.  I’m guessing they are far from being REtired.  Why do we think 65 is the age to retire anyway?

The concept of retirement began with a political ploy in the late 1800s.  Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck of Germany announced that he would pay a pension to any nonworking German over age 65.  Sneaky politician that he was, he knew that hardly anyone lived to be 65 at the time.   Politics or not, this set the arbitrary world standard for the age when people retired.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned from Bismarck and zeroed in on age 65 when he created the Social Security Act of 1935.   This idea of no longer wanting to  serve at age 65 has since grown around the world.   How absurd.  What an error.  We can take advantage of this massive mistake because rule #3 of value investing (3) is “Truth is not created by repetition of an error”.

Entire nations… in fact most of the world err by using this completely out of date formula of retirement at age 65.  Our era of longevity and modern technology makes this age the best time to turn our passions into profit with a pinnacle career.

Talk about turning your passion into profit!  The Canadian Broadcast Company published an article entitled “Canadian rangers the thin red line patrolling our harshest terrain” (3) that says (bolds are mine):  The Rangers mainly watch over the North. They are the military’s “eyes and ears,” it adds.

Or — as one Ranger recently put it to author Whitney Lackenbauer — it’s “eyeglasses, hearing aids, and walking stick.”

Rangers’ rifles are very old, 1950s-era Lee Enfields which are updated Second World War- versions of guns first introduced to the British Army in 1895.

The rifles are still in service partly because they, like the Rangers themselves, can operate reliably even under harsh Arctic conditions.

“Just because something’s not ultra-modern doesn’t mean it’s not appropriate or relevant,” says Lackenbauer.

He says many of the Rangers that he has met are motivated by a mix of patriotism, community service and a love of being on the land.

One Ranger in B.C. described the job as “being paid to go camping,” he recalls.

A big chunk of the world’s population gear up their entire lives based on a cheap political trick from before the Victorian era.  No wonder thinking about today’s state of economics and politics makes many people depressed.  The idea of retiring is depressing in many ways.   At the macro economic  level, taking valuable contributors out of the production process depresses the economy.  At the micro social level the idea of retiring is depressing to the individual.  Scientific evidence shows that retirement boosts the risk of depression by 40 percent.

Retirement Boosts Risks of Depression.

Research by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA),  shows that retirement provides a short initial boost in health, but increases the risk of clinical depression by 40 percent.  Chances of chances of being diagnosed with a physical health problem is increased by  60 percent.   The study’s author, called retirement’s impacts on health “drastic,” suggested a later retirement is better.

May I suggest a better way to solve this problem for a happier retirement?  Don’t retire.  Instead have a pinnacle career.

Malcom Gladwell explores the phenomenon of taking advantage of massive social economic errors in his book ,David and Goliath. I recommend reading this to see why older and smaller can be better.

Writer’s Camps – Recorded on MP3

Learn how to learn how to wrote and self publish from our recorded Writer’s Camp…

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

Here I am working poolside in the winter, at our Florida farm.

gary scott

Here I am with our hound Ma, working during the summer at our North Carolina farm.

Learn how to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.  I have been able to earn by writing in Hong Kong, England, the Isle of Man, Dominican Republic and Ecuador to name a few of the place I have lived.  Everywhere I have been… too numerous to share here, I have been able to work.

All I need is my laptop.

That’s all you need too… a laptop to be free!

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

Another benefit is income.   Writing has brought me both our farms, free and clear… plus a lot more.

Another good example of earning potential is my friend Hugh Howey.   He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks.

Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon.com.  This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

Sometimes Hugh and I get together at my  farm and play chess (he beats me badly).

Writers like High are great inspirations.

A couple of years ago Hugh  left Florida, and moved to South Africa.  He had a sailing catamaran built for him and now can sail the world while he continues to write.

Hugh explained it like this: And that’s the miracle of working as a writer: I can do it from anywhere and everywhere. The past few years, I’ve done a lot of writing from airplanes and airports while on business trips abroad.  SAND was entirely written overseas while traveling through seven different countries; I think it’s a better story because of those inspirations.  In upcoming years, I may be writing near your home port.

Hugh’s a super star writer and his success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.  But you do not have to be a million dollar a year earner or a traveler to benefit from writing.

The good news is… you do not need a huge success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing can bring you a life that most people only dream of, as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like Hugh’s rarely explain is the many hours of writing that was devoted before their self published book sales soared.   Hugh, like most writers were journeymen first.  Stardom came later.

Here are sevens secrets that can help you become a journeyman writer. 

The secrets are a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income, freedom and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for more than 40 years, year in and year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably will be for you too.

First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed Merri and me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following our adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

That’s what self publishing can bring, profit, adventure and fulfillment, a great feeling of worth and wonder.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world and work with meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

The seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love this evolution due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted.

Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whiplash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. 

I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues?  You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place?  Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

Be immersed in your passion and get paid well for it. 

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  Extra income, more freedom and fulfillment are usually more than enough enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500. 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity called “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.”  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.

You can receive both the written course and the recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in a special “Live Well and Free Anywhere” program I am making available to you.  The normal fee is $299 for the written course and $299 for the recorded workshop.   I’ll send you both the course and the recorded workshop and my course “International Business Made EZ (also $299) all for $299.  You save $598.

We are so confident that you’ll gain from this offer that if you are not fully satisfied, simply email us within 60 days for a full refund .

These courses are not theoretical.  They describe, step-by-step, how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business and how we are running this self publishing business right now.   We use the 7Ps today just as we did four decades ago to create a strong annual income.

This correspondence course is for those who would like their own international self publishing micro business for fun and profit. If you want fun, freedom, extra income and fulfillment with your own full or part time writing or want to build your existing business, by writing to sell you can profit from this course.  The course can help who want their own business or who want to have a business together or a family business.  This is the perfect course for those who can no longer find employment, who are looking for ways to earn abroad and who wish to retire and supplement their income.

Whether you are retired, an investor, chiropractor, doctor, dentist, professional or already own your own business, this offers another way to make money, to turn your passion into profit. We guarantee that we have shared all we know to help you start and run your own international business.  Enjoy and live a life of following your Passion to Profit… through writing.

Here is a special offer. 

We provide two emailed courses  “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell and be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ”.

We include the “Self Fulfilled Writing and Self Publishing Course” because there are two reasons to write, when you have something to say or when you have something to sell.  In this day and age many of us want to do both, make a statement that makes the world a better place and earn something extra in the process. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product. 

You save more than $598 because you also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster David Cross (at no extra cost).
