Red roses at our house.

A reader sent this note:  We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family.  The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised by Fed-Ex. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each.  They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks.  Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

You can have 25 fresh cut roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping starting at $93.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers three color choices,  farm choice assorted, or red or red and farm assorted.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

The first time I wrote about Ecuador roses, we made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.  Since then our rose sales have been helping send Ecuador children to universities.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

Valentine’s Roses at our home.

Your order will go straight to our rose supplier who will reserve your color option.

UPS or Fedex will deliver the Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from Ecuador.  Open them.  If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS/Fedex driver and let me know. We’ll give you a full refund.

(To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with UPS/Fedex when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.  You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.)

You can order 100 fresh roses and save even more.   Enjoy the abundance of 100 fresh cut roses!  Fedex charges the same to deliver 50 or 100 roses so the price per rose is much less on orders of 100.

Buy 100 and make eight bouquets of 12 roses. which make incredible Valentine gifts!

Premium Quality Roses

ecuador-roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for fresh cut roses, delivered direct to your home you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists.  These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air, are stored in Miami, then shipped by truck and then they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you receive them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office.  This means they last much longer.

Environmentally Clean Roses

Ecuador-valentine's-roses

Merri loves the Valentine’s roses.

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Here are some of my roses.  Compare that head size to anything you see in a store!

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

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

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

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

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

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

ecuador-banks

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

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

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

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

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

goldenseal ginseng

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

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

loquats

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

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

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

loquat

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

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

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

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

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

Our North Carolina greenhouse.

Our Florida greenhouse.

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

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

You can have 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred, we grab the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 15,000 roses that raised $6,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provided.

So when a chance to offer Ecuador roses regularly, I thought, “Why not?”

There and then I decided to make a special offer.  Here it is.

The cost of roses, and especially delivery, has been rising, but we still offer four ways to get fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates and help create employment in Ecuador in the process.

I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

Fedex will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know.  We’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

There are four ways to obtain 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut roses and save.

25 farm choice $80.00

50 farm choice $90.00

100 farm choice $140.00

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex or UPS will deliver your roses to you or your recipient on Thursday, December 22nd, 2016.

Premium Quality Roses

I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 to $135 for 50 roses from the best ranked websites.  These prices are far above ours because this is a service Merri and I offer to our readers and the people of Ecuador.  We are not in the rose business and don’t have to add markups.

Fresher Quality Roses

You do not give up quality for the lower price.  In fact the quality of your roses rises.

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office.

The longevity of the roses depends on the conditions they are kept and their care so a special instruction is included with your roses on how to make them last.

Fedex or UPS delivers them in the afternoon and we immediately put them in fresh water.  By the morning they are fully opened and incredible!  This is only a third of one order.

You can now have fresh Ecuador roses on your Thanksgiving table or send them as gifts as well.

Our rose supplier just sent this note:  Gary, Thanksgiving is on Thursday November  24th so we will deliver roses on Tuesday, November 22nd.  and price when we let the farm choose the colors sent..  We will close sales at midnight EST this Friday… November 18th.

Ecuador roses have extra large heads that open fully.

You can have 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska but must order for Thanksgiving roses before midnight EST November 15.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred, we grab the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 15,000 roses that raised $6,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provides.

So when a chance to offer Ecuador roses regularly, I thought, “Why not?”

There and then I decided to make a special offer. Here it is.

The cost of roses, and especially delivery, has been rising, but we still offer four ways to get  fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates and help create employment in Ecuador in the process.

I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

Fedex will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know.  I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

This is a batch of 100 fresh Ecuador roses that Merri and I enjoyed.

To order, click on your choice above.  Your order will be taken to our flower supplier who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you a Fedex tracking number to coordinate your delivery time.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex will deliver your roses to you or your recipient on Tuesday, November 22nd.

Premium Quality Roses

I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 to $135 for 50 roses from the best ranked websites.  These prices are far above ours because this is a service Merri and I offer to our readers and the people of Ecuador. We are not in the rose business and don’t have to add markups.

Fresher Quality Roses

You do not give up quality for the lower price.  In fact the quality of your roses rises.

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

The longevity of the roses depends on the conditions they are kept and their care so a special instruction is included with your roses on how to make them last.

Here are some of my previous Thanksgiving roses.  The head size is much larger than anything you see in a store and Fresh Ecuador roses last much longer.

Roses from Ecuador Help Earthquake Victims


Your Order of Fresh Long Stem Ecuador roses can help victims of Ecuador’s earthquake.

After the earthquake in Ecuador, we created a special program for Mother’s Day that donated all our proceeds from Ecuador rose sales to the Red Cross in Ecuador.   Mother’s Day rose sales created $700 in donations that we would normally have received.   In addition, many buyers added a $10 or $20 donation amounting to an additional $210 or a total of  $910 was donated to the Red Cross.  There was also an additional $120 donated to another organization at a donor’s request.  As you can see below, that money will go a long way.

Now we have a more specific program available through our friend and attorney, Floridalva Zambrano.  We have worked with Flori for more than ten years and have found her to be a wonderful, trustworthy, caring person,

Flori has worked with the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS for 20 years) and they have a way that contributions can be made in in a very specific way, so donors can monitor and have the opportunity to evaluate and even get in contact with the people they are helping.  The target population to be assisted are in Portoviejo, Manta, Bahía, San Vicente, Canoa, Pedernales, San Isidro, El Carmen.  These are amoung the areas hardest hit by the earthquake.  Floridalva’s church has congregations in all of these locations and can coordinate things through the leaders, pastors and congregation members in those areas.  She  strongly encourages donors to channel their help through the Alliance Metropolitan Temple, which administration is subject to a national organization audit.

There are two ways to help.  The first is to order Ecuador roses.  Our flower provider will make a donation of $20 for each order to the the Alliance Metropolitan Temple and inform Floridalva.

The second way is to contact Floridalva Zambrano direct at FLORIFLORI58@YAHOO.ES

You can see more details about the Ecuador Relief Program by clicking here.

Here is how to order the roses.

ecuador-mother's-day-Roses

These fresh roses will be delivered to your doorstep by UPS or Fedex, anywhere in the USA.  A contribution to the Ecuador Country Assistance Strategy will be made for each order.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people.  We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor some years ago, we grabbed the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 5,000 roses that raised $2,000 that helped Ecuador’s poor.  The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children.

So we offered Ecuador roses again and sold over 9,000 roses raising another $3,660!

This last Mother’s Day, 2016 offer Merri and I have asked our flower supplier, Roberto Ribadeneira, to pay $20 per sale to the Red Cross account set up to help with earthquake relief.

Now we are continuing this program for regular rose purchases.

This is not a deal that helps our pocketbooks.  We are donating all our rose sale proceeds to help the relief in Ecuador.  The cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… a wonderful gift of the most beautiful roses and help to those shattered by the earthquake in Ecuador.

Thanksgiving is a special time to get together with family and friends and reunite with those you love.  Enjoy the elegance of special roses from Ecuador.

Earn With Roses – Save Tax Cash


The note below from Roberto Ribadneira shows how to earn with roses.

Ecuador Roses – Export Tour with Roberto

We will have an Ecuador Export Tour in Cotacachi and surrounding areas on November 11-13,2015.   You can learn how to earn exporting Ecuador products including Ecuador premium roses.

Ecuador roses are great income producers because people re-order on a regular basis.  Ecuador premium roses last longer so cost less in hotels, restaurants and country clubs who need to regularly order flowers.   Flower Shops, wedding and event planners also order roses every single week.

Roses are especially effective fundraisers.  Learn how roses can raise money for charities on the export tour.  Learn how to get floral orders through events.  For example, recently a Rotary Club in Texas ordered 10,000 roses for a fundraiser.  The cost for the roses, landed in Texas, was $1.25 per head.  The roses sold for $3.00 per head.  Those roses at that event raised a lot of money for a good cause.  This fund raising event was a huge success because everyone loves roses.  They were happy to contribute because they helped a good cause and the roses still cost less than in many flower shops.

This was a huge event, but roses can raise money on any scale.  People are willing to buy if they know that part of the money coming from the sale is going to a good cause.  When you export fund raising roses, you are not just selling a product, you are contributing and helping people.

Learn ways to raise money without holding an event also.  Another Rotary Club recently created an email program that offers Ecuadorian Roses to their members.  A donation is made to the Rotary Club for every box of roses we ship.

ecuador export roses

Roses shipped for Rotary Club in Texas.

We shipped these roses and made contributions on every box.  This is really efficient.  The orders were sent directly to us from the buyer contributors.   We shipped direct to the buyer and passed on the contributions to the Rotary Club.  We did all the accounting and let Rotary know who bought and how much.  Once the club sent the email, we did all the work.

There is even a way for the buyers to contribute additional money to the Rotary Club, when they make the rose purchase.

Learn how to work with the fund raisers and us so once the fund raisers contact the members, we do the rest. All you and the fund raiser have to do is collect your payment.

Here is an example of how Ecuador exports and email fundraising works.  This week, we launched an email fundraiser for the Rotary Club in Quito, Ecuador with a rose promotion.  Here is the email the Rotary Club sent.

Buy Roses and contribute to Rotary Club Quito Norte.

The Rotary Club in Quito helps poor communities around Puerto Quito, Mindo, Puerto Rico and other small towns in the province of Pichincha in Ecuador.  Our Club buys and installs water treatment systems that make water drinkable.  This mainly helps children at school to be able to drink the water without getting sick.

ecuador export roses

The beneficiaries of the last project (which had the help of Rotary Clubs around the USA), helped 8,450 people in 4 different towns and 4 schools. The number of students that benefited were 764 children.  The total investment on the project was USD $54,752.

We would like to help raise funds for the next water treatment project by offering Ecuador premium roses.  For every box of roses that are ordered, there is a $10.00 contribution to the Rotary Club in Ecuador, plus if you wish you can add another $10.00 to the project.

ecuador export roses

Your rose order helps in so many ways. You help Ecuador as a whole by getting FAIR TRADE ROSES, which comply with the highest of international standards.  The farms that grow the roses provide health care, competitive salaries, free meals (breakfast and lunch), sports facilities, technology classes and transportation for the workers.  They are certified by, FAIRTRADE, Global G.A.P., BASC and Flor Ecuador.

You also help Rotary Club Quito Norte in Ecuador to raise funds and can even match the donation.  You help the children of Ecuador in our areas get new water systems that improve their quality of life.

ecuador export roses

Plus you bring the joy of a roses beauty into your life and everyone who visits your office or home.

Gain Huge Tax Benefits

Learn how to use fund raisers and charity events to save tax cash.   There are innumerable tax benefits that are created by your own micro business.   Business and charity can create even great tax savings as this note from Conrad Oertwig our tax preparer shows.

Conrad wrote:  “Ask yourself this: Could a $300 charitable event ticket produce a bigger tax deduction than a $300 business meal with a client?   In both cases, you spend $300.

“Here’s the answer and it’s a stunner: the charity sporting event produces double the deduction of the business meal. Double!

“Are you capturing your double deductions? Do you have the following line items set out in your chart of accounts?

“1:  100% business entertainment deductions
“2:  Regular 50% business entertainment deductions

“If not, and if you attend or participate in charitable events, you are missing valuable deductions because you are giving your tax preparer only one category for entertainment.  Worse yet, you might be deducting the charity events as charitable deductions. Yikes!

“Example 1. You buy two tickets to the local American Cancer Society chapter’s golf outing. On the day of the golf outing, you collect your business colleague and the two of you have breakfast at the outing. Over breakfast, you and the colleague discuss new ways of getting more prospects for your businesses. This gives you a business meeting, and now the golf outing qualifies as business entertainment associated with the breakfast discussion. With proper documentation of the cost and business discussion, the entertainment cost of this golf outing qualifies for the 100% deduction.

“Example 2. Everything is the same as in example 1—breakfast discussion and all—but you go as a spectator to a PGA TOUR event that gives 100% of its net proceeds to 501(c)(3) charities. Your cost of the PGA TOUR event is 100% deductible.

“Example 3. Everything is the same as in example 1. The charity sends you a note saying that the fair value of your golf, food, etc., is equal to the amount you paid and you have no charity tax deduction. Smile. You have no problem. The fair value limitation does not apply to business entertainment. Thus, like in example 1, you deduct everything.

“You might ask me: Where does the law say that I can do this? Internal Revenue Code Section 274(l)(1)(B) says that the 50% cut in a business entertainment deduction shall not apply to any ticket for any sports event:

1    which is organized for the primary purpose of benefiting an organization which is described in section 501(c)(3) and exempt from tax under section 501(a),

2    all of the net proceeds of which are contributed to such organization, and

3    which utilizes volunteers for substantially all of the work performed in carrying out such event.

“Events that use volunteers for substantially all the work and donate the net proceeds to charity include, among others:
•    Golf
•    Tennis
•    Skeet shoots
•    Pheasant hunts
•    Fishing tournaments
•    Bowling
•    Marathons
•    Triathlons
•    Ski tournaments”

This example from Conrad is another case where tax knowledge produces cash and just one of seven cases outlined in a report that I am sending to all delegates of our Value Investing Seminar.

Gain ideas on how to have your own micro business for extra income and to save cash on taxes at our October Value Investment Seminar.

Learn Fun & Profitable Tax Secrets

Imagine this, micro businesses are such good ways to create wealth and reduce tax that even cruises can be tax deductible.

Small family owned businesses have some of the best tax benefits.

Micro businesses have huge tax savings using really conservative strategies.

This is why I am delighted that our tax preparer, Conrad Oertwig, who is a master of tax savings information, has agreed to speak at our October 17-18, 2015 Value Investment Seminar.

Conrad Oertwig can assist you on tax matters.  IN FACT THIS FALL, Conrad will be offering a course and personal service on ways that one-person and family business owners can have more cash via tax savings.   Conrad is offering a report on seven ways to put more cash on the table when you earn and is releasing a course on how to save taxes this fall.

Conrad’s report is “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax… for the One-Owner Business”.  He sent me this note to share with you about the report.

From: Conrad Oertwig

One hard fact of life is that taxes are cash.  It’s a mistake to think of taxes as taxes.  If you want to create more net worth, you need to think of taxes as cash.

How much tax cash are you leaving on the table? Thousands? Tens of thousands?

Here are just three of seven secrets I will share with Gary Scott readers at the October 17-18 Value Investment Seminar and in my report.   Learn how to pay less tax, have more cash, and build your net worth.

Secret # 1: Gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business.  In the past, your tax adviser likely told you to drive one vehicle for business and the other vehicle for personal purposes. This old advice made it easier to claim the one car as a business car because no business mileage log was required back then. But that’s no longer true.

Today, tax law requires you to keep a mileage log to prove business use. That changes the game. With today’s rules, you gain nothing by using only one car. But the new mileage log rule gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions.

First, you might ask: Will the IRS allow me to use more than one vehicle for business?

Yes! The IRS official method for computing business use of a single vehicle is to divide business miles by total miles driven. IRS Form 4562, which is filed by proprietorships and corporations, contains spaces for up to six vehicles. In other words, yes, the IRS recognizes that you can drive more than one vehicle.

Here are the two basics that make the two-vehicle strategy work:
1:  You drive more miles than your spouse, and
2:  Both vehicles are somewhat close in adjusted basis.
To see if you can benefit from this two-vehicle strategy, and by how much (the minimum amount, really), apply the arithmetic from the before-and-after example below to your vehicles.

Before. You drive 2,000 personal and 28,000 business miles on your vehicle (93% business). Your spouse drives 8,000 personal miles on vehicle 2. Each vehicle has an adjusted basis of $24,000. Your maximum depreciation and/or Section 179 deduction is $22,400 (93% times $24,000) on the one vehicle you currently drive for business.

After. You switch vehicles with your spouse every week. You now have 73.7% business use of vehicle 1 and 73.7% business use of vehicle 2. This produces $35,376 in maximum depreciation and/or Section 179 deductions (73.7% x 2 x $24,000).

You gain $12,976 in new deductions ($35,376 minus $22,400). You did not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny. You simply had to know (as you learned here) that this strategy could work for you.

Secret #2:  Have a second office in the home.

Have you been told that because you have an office outside your home that you may not have an office in the home?  That’s wrong!

IRS publication 463 states, “You can have more than one business location, including your home, for a single trade or business.”  Learn why in the free report due to IRS publication 587 you want your office in the home to qualify as an administrative office.

Secret #3: Travel by cruise ship and deduct up to $680 a day.

When you know the rules, it’s easy to travel to a business meeting by cruise ship rather than by airplane or other mode of transportation.  Tax law provides various ways for you to deduct a cruise.  The free report shows an example of a trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands from California or New York.

Learn about IRS Regulation 1.274-4 that gives you two one-owner business friendly rules that you can use to your benefit:

1:  The United States means the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
2: Transportation cost to a foreign destination for seven days or less, excluding the day of departure, is not subject to an allocation between business and personal days.

In the example if you fly to Miami, Florida, board a cruise ship that will take five days to arrive at St. Thomas your deductions will include the cost of:

1 :  Travel to Miami
2:   Cruise ship fare to St. Thomas (not to exceed tax law’s luxury boat limits that range in 2014 from a low of $566 to $680 per day, depending on the dates of travel)
3:   Food and lodging in St. Thomas
4:   Airfare to Miami
5 :  Travel from Miami to home

You have to admit, tax knowledge can be fun which is why I want to send you this free report.

I specialize in “nuts and bolts” tax strategies that bring tax law to life so that business taxpayers and professional tax advisers can put the law to work for them.  In fact, my mission is to clarify taxes so that you take control of your money.

Plucking common sense from the tax law is time consuming and difficult work.  Yet, after more than 25 years, I still get great satisfaction when I can clarify and extract tax dollars from the tax law not only for your pockets but also to add to your net worth.  In fact I have extracted over 400 tax savings tips and would like to share the most important lessons with you so am creating a course that will share seven tax secrets each month for the next year.

Sincerely,

Conrad Oertwig

Pinnacle Career – Smelling Roses


Earn (or save) extra income as an Ecuadorian premium rose distributor during the Ecuador rose summer promotion.

Here is a special offer to earn and save with Ecuador premium roses by Roberto Ribadeneira:

roses

With summer comes: great weather, vacations and of course, Wedding Season.

We are getting many orders for Weddings all across the USA, with people saving hundreds and even thousands of dollars by ordering directly from our group of farms in Ecuador.  We would like to reach even more people and bring more joy with our beautiful and premium Roses.

This is why we are launching a promotional discount for this Summer Season. You can order or refer our Roses to family, friends or people that you know and we will give you a 10% discount.

The savings are significant, mainly because roses for weddings are in the hundreds of stems, meaning that you could save hundreds of dollars just by getting roses directly from us.

roses

For a medium size wedding that happened last week, we sent 1000 stems of roses, the price was $1.65 per stem for a unique premium pink rose called Toscanini.  The price at the local market (this was in Orgeon) for these same pink roses is $2.5 per stem. On this order the bride’s savings were $850.00.

Add to this that we are offering a 10% discount on top of our already great price.  With that discount the price for the same roses is now $1.48 making the savings $1,020.

For smaller orders you still save money. We will be offering the 10% discount on all orders for 100+ roses.

Ecuador Export Tours

Ecuador Export Business Idea

Live anywhere – Earn in Ecuador with an export business in Ecuador.

Create an Ecuador exports business with Roberto Ribadeneira’s Ecuador Export Tour.   Merri and I have worked with Roberto for nearly twenty years exporting many products.

You can arrange an individual tour designed especially for you.

ecuador exports

Lake Quicocha near Cotacachi.

Visiting another country is great, but it is even better if you can do business while traveling!

Come to Ecuador and learn all about exports to the USA, Canada and Europe while visiting amazing places and earning money.

* You may be able to deduct part or all of this trip from your taxes.

* You can buy products to sell back home.

* You can learn about exporting from Ecuador to anywhere.

* You can even bring ideas to manufacture in Ecuador with great quality and competitive prices.

Coming to Ecuador not only won’t cost money but will make money for you.

Here is a note from Roberto Ribadeneira:

Let me share all the knowledge, contacts and products I have accumulated over decades of exporting.  Make your trip to Ecuador the beginning of a great business opportunity.

ecuador exports

Otavalo Market.  Learn about Tagua…a vegetable, sustainable, renewable ivory.

Let’s see some numbers.

ecuador exports

Tagua bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.

Tagua necklace. Cost in Ecuador is $3, it is sold in the USA for at least $15.

Metal Bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $1, it is sold in the USA for at least $10.

Shawl. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50, it is sold in the USA for at least $11.

Scarf.  Cost in Ecuador is $3.00 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.00.

ecuador exports

Alpaca Scarves.

These are just few examples of products that are inexpensive and have huge margins.  But there is also another plus; you can request specific improvements on those products.

But let’s go over some numbers and specific ideas.

1-    You want to sell a tagua bracelet to a University in Colorado, but everyone can do that, what they can’t do is sell a tagua bracelet with the University’s color. We can dye the tagua bracelet to match the University’s color, same goes for any other tagua designs and even for shawls and other textiles. If you make just $9 on each tagua bracelet and you sell 100 units, you are making $900 on 1 order.  And this is just 1 product, and this is just 1 University.  You can apply this idea to any education center in the USA.

2-    You see designs of leather products that you think could be made better, or different.  There is a niche market where you can sell them.  The manufacturers in Ecuador can make any design, on any color with major improvements over the original idea.  You can even request to put a logo and special details on the products.  We have a major company in the USA that wants our leather iPhone 6 cases, but they want them with their branding and specifications that other cases don’t have.  So we are making the leather cases exactly as they want them.  Margins on leather products are around 60% retail and 20% wholesale. Orders for medium size companies come in the hundreds, so you can make good money selling leather. Customers and myself have made thousands of dollars selling these products.

3-    Selling Roses to final customers is another amazing way of making money.  What I am doing right now is reaching to people that want to raise funds for specific projects and teaching them how to use roses for that.  On one specific program we are donating $20 to $40 on each box sold to a Water Project in Ecuador.  The response has been unbelievable, people enjoy the beauty of Roses from Ecuador but also contribute to a good cause at the same time.  Since there is no limit on quantity of flowers that you can sell, there is no limit on the number of people that you can involve in this idea.

Rose Farm Processing Facility.

4-    Selling wholesale. This is the main goal for the July course that I want you to take here in Ecuador.  If you find a store, a chain, a website or any other vendor that sells unique and cool products, you are in for a great business opportunity. Their orders are in the hundreds and even thousands of units.  Margins are lower, but since you are selling more, that compensates.  The nice thing about this part of the business is that these big companies are looking for different products, so if they buy 1 from you, there is a big chance that they will buy many, many others.  Remember that our manufacturers can make the products with the customer’s specifications, so there is no restriction on design that your buyer may want.

As you can see there are many ways in which you can make money while visiting Ecuador.  That is why I have designed an Ecuador Export Course that can be especially customized for you.

We work 3 full days together learning and searching for products that you could buy.  You and I will go over ideas, product designs, web design, shopping carts, SEO and other details on how to get as many customers as you can.

ecuador exports

Leather Duffel Bags.

The course includes taking you to the manufacturers, sellers and export companies so you will have all the contact information that you need to move forward on your business.  There are dozens of manufacturers that make every type of product that you can imagine.  Most of them already work with big importers all over the world and have proved that the quality of their products is amazing.

If you would like to sell retail, I will also show you how to design a website, create products, a shopping cart, how to set up the system to charge your customers online and the basics of promoting it.

There are plenty of places to visit and ideas to explore. Among the places that you will visit while on the Export Tour are:
–    Quito
–    Otavalo
–    Peguche
–    Ibarra
–    Cotacachi
–    San Antonio de Pichincha

This is not just another course, this is THE COURSE. I don’t just teach you how to Import Products to the USA, I also work on the import-export business myself, which means that I have the experience and knowledge to give you ideas and solutions.

Jewelry is one of many Ecuador exports.

Ecuador has evolved as an export center and I have expanded my export service to create custom export tours that fit your schedule and particular desires.

I arrange for you to meet the artists, designers, creators, craftsmen, wholesalers of products that suit your business ideals and arrange visits of workshops, homes and markets.

You can learn about exports as diverse as jewelry or wood products.

Ecuador has great art exports.

ecuador-exports

There are wonderful handmade crafts like the chess set below.

This tour goes to the high Andes.

You’ll see products from Zuleta where they create handmade “green” cotton-one-of-a-kind tableware, shirts, specialty items.

Here you see them in hand sewn embroidery from the village of Zuleta. In this Andean community near us hand embroidery has been an important form of artistic expression and adornment for centuries. Andean cultures have long boasted superior textiles, far surpassing those of Europe. The weavers of the Andes could produce material with as many as five hundred two-ply woolen wefts per inch compared to one hundred in Europe.

The women of Zuleta are renowned for unique hand embroidered designs and colors. Their styles are so unique they have become a form of cultural identification.

Flowers are popular in Otavalan sweaters as well.  Plus the ladies of Intag make flowers from plant fiber.

My main exports are flowers, but we send many products and have the Ecuadorshop Logistics Service to help you become an exporter.

Roberto speaking at a seminar about how he can shop, ship and charge for Ecuador export businesses.

Here is a Ecuador export business I arranged for a tour delegate who sold to the Texas Rangers.

texas rangers badge

Texas Ranger badge.

Almost everyone has heard of the Texas Rangers.  They are the oldest law enforcement body on the North American Continent and have helped bring in many famous criminals like John Wesley Hardin and Bonnie and Clyde.

We were really tickled to hear from a delegate of the Ecuador Export tours that he had sold hundreds of embossed Ecuador leather backpacks to the Texas Rangers and that was just the first order.

Here are some of the services we offer to help you export from Ecuador to the USA.

#1:    A US company.

#2:   A continuous bond, which has to be purchased each year to be eligible to register to import with the US Customs.

#3:   A broker who has a power of attorney authorizing them to handle your imports.

#4:   A US bank account to pay US customs department when taxes and duties are due.

Plus if you are selling direct to customers and accepting credit cards, you need:

#1:   A verifiable credit history and Social Security number.

#2:  A gateway company to process the charges.

#3:   A credit card merchant account.

#4: A certified, secure  shopping cart.

#5:  An annual PCI compliance review and certification

#6:  An EIN number provided by the IRS

#7:  A sales number issued by the state of Florida.

#8: A Physical US address (PO box not allowed).

#9:  Monthly accounting system.

#10: IRS annual sales report.

We can help you organize all these steps.

Our Ecuadorshop Logistics Service provides all these services for exporters.

There are two more very special benefits.

First, our logistics service can pay manufactures in Ecuador.

Second, our service can monitor production and quality and assure timely delivery.

Many people try to export and find really great products that they sell really well.   However once they return to the US they can’t restock unless they return to Ecuador.  If they do reorder but are not present for delivery, they are at the mercy of the manufacturer… which creates a huge quality control problem.  These importers get whatever suppliers here send them.

Many don’t even try to reorder.  They don’t know how.  They don’t want to wire  money without seeing the product and being are of delivery.

Many others just have no idea or find that the income is not worth the time, effort and cost of all the red tape.

The good news is that I do not get in-between the importer and buyer either.  I set a price for my service and the importer knows his product cost.

Our service is provided for a set fee so the importer knows all costs and can price his product accordingly.

This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA.   We have used this logistics service ourselves for years.  One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.  We sell Ecuador roses… charge the customer and deliver the order to our logistics service.   Everything else is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and the roses are delivered direct to the buyer.  The logistics service then charges our credit card and pays the supplier… so no money has to be wired to Ecuador.

The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes large and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.   Exporting can be fun and fulfilling as well as profitable.  Improved technology continually makes having your own global micro business easier if you have support.

Red roses at our house.

A reader sent this note: We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family.

The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each. They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks. Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

Your roses include a personalized card so you can have fresh Ecuador Valentine roses yourself or send them as gifts.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty. When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses, we grabbed the chance.

Your order from this site goes direct to the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red, or farm’s choice.

UPS will deliver the Ecuador roses directly to you from Ecuador. Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS driver and let me know. We’ll give you a full refund.

(To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with UPS when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery. You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.)

This is a batch of 100 fresh Ecuador roses that Merri and I enjoyed.

Dozens-of-roses

You can order 100 fresh roses and save even more. Enjoy the abundance of 100 fresh cut roses! UPS charges the same to deliver 50 or 100 roses so the price per rose is much less on orders of 100.

Buy 100 and make eight bouquets of 12 roses. which make incredible Valentine gifts!

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists. These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air, are stored in Miami, then shipped by truck and then they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you receive them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated facility until, then flown to your destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last much longer.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses you receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Christmas-roses

Here are some of my roses. Compare that head size to anything you see in a store!

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm

There you have it…three great reasons to experience the warmth of the people and beauty of Ecuador this Valentine’s…the freshest…best and best smelling roses…and you help the environment and the poor by having them delivered into your and your loved one’s homes.

All Ecuador Valentine rose orders will be scheduled for delivery on February 12, 2015.

Noon, Saturday February 7, 2015 is the last day left to order Ecuador Valentine roses. The rose farm will email you a UPS tracking number when the roses are shipped from Ecuador (normally four days before delivery) to make sure you’ll know exactly when your roses will be arriving.

I regret that, due to customs regulations, our rose supplier cannot deliver roses in Canada.

See how to care for fresh Ecuador roses to make them amazingly long lasting.

See the steps that keep some of these roses looking good for 14 days.

After 18 days some still looked like this.

Let me add here that not all, in fact not most, fresh Ecuador flowers will last 14 days. Nine days is more the norm.

Many factors matter when it comes to longevity. Weather conditions that affect the temperature in the delivery van will have an impact. How long the flowers are in the van matters. How quickly you get the roses out of the box and into water affects longevity.

The types of roses delivered also relate to longevity. Thick stemmed roses with smaller heads generally last longer than thin stemmed roses with large heads. This however is not always true.

Some of roses we have received (after being severely pruned and placed three to a vase) lasted three weeks.

I have learned a few tips beyond those shown in the flower care instruction. They are:

#1: Cut the tips of the rose stems when you receive them and place them in warm water and plant food.

#2: Remove the guard leafs (the outside leaf that will have a strip of green on it). These leaves are high in acid that speeds blooming.

#3: Do not crowd the flowers. Arrange them so the heads do not touch.

#4: Recut the tips just a bit every other day and refresh with warm and plant food.

#5: When the heads start to droop cut the stem severely. The shorter stem seems to bring the flower back.

Use these three tips and those shown in the Care of Flowers report here and be ready to be amazed at how long your fresh Ecuador flowers last.
