Peterman Again


J. Peterman provides something unique for all.

One of the case studies in our self publishing course “Self Fulfilled” features the business of fashion seller J. Peterman.

As a writer I have always admired Peterman’s ability to tell a really good, romantic story in just a few words.

As a businessman, I have learned from his success… and his failure and his comeback.

As a person I have always been inspired by his motto; “you only fail when you give up”.   I found the fact that almost immediately after bankruptcy, he was selling his book “J. Peterman Rides Again”, which described his bankruptcy and how to avoid it.  What a way to turn a problem into opportunity!

Recently he was in the news again, a Wall Street Journal article, “Remember the J.Peterman Catalog? It’s Still Going Strong and so is Mr. Peterman” (1).

j peterman

The article describes Peterman as “the gentleman-retailer famously satirized on “Seinfeld”.

Maybe most of all, I am impressed at how he turns his passion into profit and at age 77 is still doing so.

The WSJ.com article says: He has visited at least 80 countries, and when John Peterman says “visited,” he means it. “That’s not just stopping at the airport to change planes,” said the founder of J. Peterman Co., the clothing company that’s acquired cult status due to its hand-illustrated catalog and fancifully narrative product descriptions that often reference far-flung places. At 77, Mr. Peterman still regularly sets off from his Lexington, Ky., home to destinations like Paris and Buenos Aires. “I’m going out and looking for inspiration,” he explained. He insists that if you want to find the proper cut of a kilt, you must tramp around Scotland…

Here is an excerpt from our J. Peterman case study in “Self Fulfilled”.

j peterman

An excellent book to study about this is “Peterman Rides Again”, by John Peterman published by Prentice Hall.

You may know of Peterman from the Jerry Seinfeld show or you may have been one of the 18 million people who received his mail order catalogue each year. As a marketing oriented person, Peterman has long been one of my heroes. However as good as he was at marketing, as well know he was from the publicity he received on Seinfeld and despite the fact that he sold hundreds of millions worth of goods, the J. Peterman company went broke! His book goes a long way to revealing why he had success and why he ran in to trouble.

One (in my humble opinion) of his problems was described on page 180 of this book when he wrote, “There are two theories of growth. One is to let your organization development lag behind business growth; the danger with that is you get too much business and your company crumbles from within because you don’t have the systems and staff to handle it. The other approach is to build an organization that can handle the business you expect to get; that’s what our investors favored.”

In Peterman’s case, his business had grown from nothing in 1986 to $64 million in sales in 1994! But growth (not surprisingly) had slowed. He tried to stimulate more growth from a weak understanding of his market and staff up for that growth at the same time. His losses became monumental and he went broke.

He followed his investor’s advice (one reason to not have investors) and it cost him his business.

I believe there is a third alternative to dealing with the rises and falls of business, called Collapsible Overheads. This approach has helped my business stay afloat and profitable through thick and thin (though never in Peterman’s league) over the years. This system has kept my business up-to-date when business boomed and has saved me from huge losses when business has been slow.

Our course “Self Fulfilled” describes how to do what you love, but do so with profit.

The lessons on collapsible overheads look at the importance of never letting your business activities get so far ahead that they are not fun anymore.

Having a way to not get stretched thin is good advice in business and all of life.   Of course when you turn your passion into profit, your life is your business.

You can order Peterman’s book at Amazon.com. Even though it’s almost 20 years old, the message is still potent for those who have decided to turn their passion into profit.

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.

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. Create your own Sales Story…  How to Deal With Cultural Differences…  How to Build Global Lists and Use International PR…  How to Spot the National Psyche and Quadruple Profits With Multimedia Marketing…  How to Choose Businesses as Pioneers or as Settlers.

Tom K., an engineer from Ohio, cashed in on this idea and wrote, “Basically, I learned the selling and marketing implications.  The course is absolutely worth the price!”

Learn  How to Obtain What You Need from the Net.  How to Use the Web to Reach your Market.  How to develop your site, target your market and start getting visits.

One delegate, Ted T. a publisher from California said:

“Your course is outstanding! Just two hours of study alone were worth more than the price.”

While Kelly, a business woman from Atlanta, explained:

“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).”

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.

Use Law of Technology for Extra Income


There are  six laws of technology that can make our lives better.

Three decades ago, a historian wrote six laws to help society understand technology.  Understanding these laws can help us keep up with today’s rapid change.

They can also help us find ways to earn more.

The laws are explained in a Wall Street Journal article “the Laws of Technology” (1).

Let’s focus here on the 2nd law.  ‘Invention is the mother of necessity.’  This means that “every technical innovation seems to require additional technical advances in order to make it fully effective.

The article gives an example using the smartphone.  This was a great invention.

A few have made billions by manufacturing smartphones.  Most of us did not have the experience, finances or desire to manufacture or market them.  However countless other opportunities were created, from making (or selling or writing about) phone cases to 5G wireless to an endless supply of apps to use on the phone.

The smartphone made the new technologies possible but, the smartphone’s success is also due to the other technologies.  If smart phones were just used as phones to speak to others…  they would not be so addictive.

Here is the trick that you can use to tap into income opportunities created by new technology.

When a new technology comes along, look for ways (that are interesting to you) to provide a product or service based around the new idea.

For example, our recent message  “How to Gain from Viral Passion” (2) explained how a high tech cooking pot called the “Instant Pot” has sold many thousands of pots using social networking.  The article explained that enthusiastic users of these pots have written and published over 1,500 cookbooks based on “Instant Pot”.

The “Instant Pot” cookbooks are examples of how to earn extra income spotting subsidiary opportunity created by new technology. 

The invention of this cooker created the possibility for the cookbooks.  The cookbooks contribute to the pot’s success.  The pots contribute to the cookbook’s success.

When you see a new technology being used by the world… look for unintended consequences that can create income for you.

There are unintended consequences when benign technologies are employed on a massive scale.  The technology is not good or bad.  The way humans use it may be.  The technology we call the automobile can be a tank for killing or an ambulance for saving.

Look for new technology.

Look for fulfilling ways that you can be involved.

Look for ways  that new technology creates income for you as you create some good.

The way we live is changing fast.   Expect to see new technology in the year ahead.

You can earn extra income by publishing information about, some part of a new technology that strikes a fancy with you.

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.

spine

From Dr. Joe’s website.

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.

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. Know where and when to advertise (such as never near Easter-Christmas is OK).

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.

Ten Days Work – 30 Years Pay


Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days.  We wrote a report in that time.  The effort immediately generated an excellent bonus of cash.  Even better those ten days of effort, three decades ago, continues to create residual income to this very day and should do so for many years to come.

Learn how to get extra income now and create life long nest eggs with brief periods of work.

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 by publishing to sell.

What is publishing to sell? 

Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering books.  Self publishing is the business where the writer is also the publisher.

“Publishing to Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important information, but also leads or sells some other publication, service or product.

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.

Here are other examples.  One publisher who utilized the course, Joe Culbertson, D.C.  is a chiropractor.  Eating junk food creates numerous problems including difficulties in the spine so Dr. Joe published a series of articles about the spine.  Then he self published a three part book  Secrets of the Spine: The True Mind/Body Connection.  The series of articles and the books were informative and of great value but also introduced a valuable product Joe invented called the Spinal-Tuner.

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 change how she baked.  She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.

She published recipes on how to bake extra delicious deserts-sugar free deserts, with extra healthy ingredients.  She created opportunity with the publication.  Her publishing efforts also made her an expert and enhanced her cooking school.  The main ingredients she chose to work with were quinoa, the Andean super grain, and stevia.

Jamie learned how to take out the unwanted ingredients such as white flour and white sugar and replace them with healthy ones.  She uses veggies and quinoa along with stevia and natural honey…all organic ingredients. The cakes are gluten-free as well by replacing flour with flaxseed meal nut flours.

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’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 here. 

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.  You can create 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 that continues year after year.  Below is proof from confidential results of  sales I have made though publishing.

One November, I ventured $1,900 in postage to mail 10,000 letters. $16,823 came back in the mail (before I even had to pay the printer).  My profit after deducting all costs was $12,136 on the $1,900.

Then in December, I ventured $475.  It returned $3,106 in one month.  That led me to venture another $475 the same month.  $2,688 came back.  I ventured even more, another $475 that December and earned another $2,673.  I kept that ball rolling and ventured this amount one more time that month to gain an extra $3,970!  My business never ventured more than $475 at any one time, but my earnings were $12,437.  These are not just luck either.  I tried the same publication the next March and a $5,500 venture brought back $12,774.  In April a $1,900 venture returned $4,152.

These profits all took place in the early 1990s, but the efforts still generate residual income today.

With figures like this, you have got to ask can they be true?  I guarantee they are, but obtaining such results is not without pitfalls.  In fact, there are seventeen pitfalls I have learned to avoid and it took me more than a decade of struggle to learn how to avoid these problems.

Then the Publishing to Sell business got better, much… much better.  You see the earnings we just shared were all earned 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 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 post. 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 only pays from the delivery of a publication when it is opened.  This dramatically reduces upfront cost and risk.

Freedom is even more of an important benefit that publishing to sell can bring you.

Back in 1974, 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 and the harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in.  Then I discovered a secret on how to avoid the 17 pitfalls of publishing to sell.  Since then our publishing to sell business has brought in millions.  We gained all the physical possessions we desire (more in fact than we wanted), 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.

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 and have learned that through publishing to sell, we can accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfilment and be of service to our community.  In short, we can help 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 environment 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!  Whatever your passion learn how you can make a fortune by publishing information that sells-whether books, tapes or online.

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 real estate and seminars.  Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country in others and vice versa.  For example, there is currently a huge growth in domestic tourism and 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, but now in our 70s, we live in the US where we are closer to my mom, our children and our grandchildren.  In each phase of our lives, the publish to sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired at that time.

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 becomes a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event.

As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country.   Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax.  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.

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.  We added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website.  You’ll can learn how to do this in the course.

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 secrets below:

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.

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 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.

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 (suddenly 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.

We have had self publishing writers weekend courses.  Delegates came from all over-young couples working for an income, publishers, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, businessmen, investors, real estate brokers, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, millionaires and housewives. People from all walks of life.

This course was an outstanding success and the raves from delegates you will read below show how satisfied the delegates were.  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 its fee.”

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 were overwhelmed at how much the course helped those delegates.  We felt so good that we decided to make it available to a larger audience.

So we did a recording when we conducted this course and also placed the course in written form online.

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

What Others Say about the “Self Fulfilled” course.

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

Here are  few stories of how those who attended our Writer’s Camps have used what they learned.

Barry Weinhold sent this note: We were successful authors before attending the Writer’s Camp, with our first book published in 1989 selling over 200,000 print copies. With the tips from your course last fall, we have published six new ebooks in Kindle format that are now available  at Amazon.com.

Thanks for helping us get the word out about Barry’s 2-part Breaking Family Patterns series. Janae has also released her 3-part Con Job series.

weinhold book

We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”

weinhold book

Our monthly royalty checks are now coming in and we are very pleased with the response to our new books (656 books sold and 1295 free downloads in seven months). We have six more new ebooks in the pipeline for publication.  Our goal is to publish twelve new ebooks by our one-year course anniversary.  We couldn’t have published this quickly without the great support we received from your Writer’s Camp. We highly recommend it to anybody seeking the fast track to becoming independent self-publisher.

Self Publishers can also write in more than one niches.

Nickolette Goff writes non fiction in two niches.  After attending the Writer’s Camp, Nicki used what she had learned to help promote her first book… a Quinoa recipe cookbook with 13 recipes.  She had 10,000 downloads of the book in five days and obtained dozens of good reviews!

You can get 13 more great quinoa recipes in Nicki Goff’s book at the links below.

quinoa-book

You can order Nicki’s first book at Amazon.com.

She wrote:  Hi, Gary,  Book sales are actually going well, and I’m having a lot of fun with this. I’m so grateful to you and Merri  for pushing me to get some action going!

The free promos really get things going, and seem to reignite sales.

Two more in the works – both on gardening topics.  Best wishes for you and Merri.   Love, Nicki

What a joy seeing how helping and connecting people helps self publishers create their own special success.  How beautiful to see friends turn their passions into profit!

Nicki learned at the camp that getting these downloads is step three in a seven step process. We (and others) have been helping Nicki and our delegates walk through these steps so they can earn income through writing and publishing again and again.

Nicki is now well on her way to wonderful self publishing success.   She just completed her fourth book in a totally different genre gardening. This book is “Under Cover Gardening”.

She used the three day free Kindle marketing program again. Read about Nicki’s new book here.

kindle book

Nicki wrote:  Gary: My book was downloaded exactly 6000 times during the 3 days, and is selling around 5 per day right now.  I’m very pleased with the results – three 5* reviews so far.  Nicki

Chances are that most books you write will not be a best seller.  However Nicki’s books show the process that you use to create a steady income as you build inventory.  She is publishing numerous books in each of the genres she loves.  This creates extra income and added inventory if one of your books becomes a big success.

Let’s look at Nicki’s example again to see these benefits. Imagine this. Nicki writes a half dozen books, three on organic gardening and three on quinoa.

Then imagine that Oprah is interested in quinoa, reads Nicki’s book and has her on the show.  Nicki’s quinoa book sales will go bananas.  So too will all her other quinoa books.   Add further to this example and say that the national psyche just happens to be focused on better nutrition when this all happens.  If so, Nicki’s organic gardening book sales will skyrocket as well.

To sum this up… at the camp you’ll learn the importance of writing a lot for your niche.   The increased number of publications will allow you to keep your price low, but generate income that keeps you writing as you build inventory so any bigger success can grow in exponential bonds.

You can also self publish at any age.  A number of our friends who have used our writers course to self publish are in their 70s and 80s.  Yet college students have self published as well.

The father of the family of four wrote:  Hi Gary and Merri:  Just thought y’all would like to know that today Doss published his first book.  It is called College Confidential and it is currently listed at number 42 on amazon. com.  He would not have done it but for our experience this summer at your Writer’s Camp.

So, here is thanking you both very much.

This book is written by a student, for students, College Confidential: An Insider’s Guide to Success written by Doss Winter is filled with practical tips and insider information addressing everything from Academics to getting your Zzzzs.

Here are a few more examples of how others used the information from our workshop?

A long time friend, who had just retired from a 30 year career in the oil industry joined our program.  His passion was to learn more about health and looking at the deep, more spiritual aspects of life since he had ended a financially successful career. He has gone on to publishing the leading healthy living magazine where he lives.

Not only was he able to publish 20,000 copies of a 48-64 page magazine on healthy living every month, he was able to meet and work with leading health and spiritual leaders like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer and even the Dali Llama. What a thrill.

Michelle Toole, an at home mother, made a fateful decision… to attend our self publishing course.

Michelle was disabled when she took the “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher” camp.

She took what she learned from our publishing courses and created her own successful global micro website.

Michelle wrote:  “I have some great news, my web site  http://healthy-holistic-living.com is now getting on average 2,000 visitors a day! Yup my little one man show web site now gets close to 60,000 visitors each month!  The power of the internet is amazing as well as the opportunities.  We have said it before but it deserves saying again the internet is truly the great equalizer.

“My web site is at a point now that it is growing without much effort and produces a nice passive income allowing me to continue working on my second site http://home-remedies-and-natural-cures.com and to get my third site up and running.  I am also working on various joint ventures with other web sites focusing on helping others start their own web business. I am doing monthly webinars helping disabled individuals start their own business on the Internet and will be starting a coaching club in the new year.  The opportunities are only limited by one’s imagination.

“Again I can not thank you and Merri enough, I look forward to many great adventures and new experiences in the coming years!”

Another successful self publisher who attended our workshop wrote :

“MY HEAD IS STILL SPINNING from all of the valuable input I received. Out in the boonies, 2 + hours from the airport in Charlotte,  North Carolina it was not your typical setting for a business seminar.

“It was presented by a fascinating guy with an interesting career history. Gary Scott and his wife, Merri, split their time between their idyllic farm in North Carolina and their property in the mountains of Ecuador . I first heard about Gary through my interest in Ecuador .

“By his own admission, Gary is often ‘a bit ahead of the curve’ which is part of what makes his material interesting. You sense the authenticity of what he is saying but it has not caught on in the mainstream media or pop-culture.

“The input is that is already affecting my life was not just from the instructor, but from other participants. The small group, less than twenty, seemed to be intimately bonded as soon as the seminar started. People from all walks of life and all parts of the country gained insights from the information that was geared to create a ‘life of your choosing more so than just a successful business. A very simple but powerful concept. Why do we want the money in the first place?

“The lifestyle aspect of the course was taught by example. We, as a group, were temporarily inserted directly into the lifestyle led by Gary and Merri.  No better way to learn than by doing.

“The course content suited my needs very nicely. It addressed issues pertinent to FilmTrips and my marketing company, MJ Media. New life has been injected into several FilmTrips projects that had been languishing on a back burner for quite some time. Gary talks about being open to ‘connect the dots’ and take advantage of distortions or discrepancies between economies and countries. I am in a very good position to do that. Telephone and Internet technology has certainly arrived to help make it happen. I will keep you posted!”

My daughter and I had a fantastic time at the Writer’s Camp this past weekend.  We both felt we gained a tremendous amount of knowledge on “how to make money with our writing skills”!  Thank you.
 
Yours and Merri’s expertise on transmitting knowledge to others is phenomenal.  The warm, personal feel of being with you both along with the great people in the class was great!
 
Thank you again for all the added information gained in all areas of life and what I consider gourmet meals served to us all.

The seminar itself opened a whole new world that I hope to explore in the coming months. I drove away from your farm with a well inflated right rear tire and a wealth of information that could catapult me into a whole new profession should I opt to go that route. I still have a number of professional business ideas that I intend to pursue, however, the concepts and ideas conveyed in your seminar will serve to enhance whatever I undertake going forward.

But if there was one underlying common denominator that I recognized, it was the fact that you are both so well qualified to present in this field of communication. Probably my most prolific observation was how well read and knowledgeable you are. The breadth and depth of knowledge on so many diverse yet associated subjects kept my unswerving attention. It also opened my mind to a variety of fields that, heretofore, I would not have considered relevant to my interests. And as a presenter, Gary is prolific. I drove away knowing that not only did the seminar give me my money’s worth but I was introduced to some very valuable contacts.

The bottom line is your seminar was both eye opening and entertaining. I came, I saw, I learned, and I even ate healthy. Thanks for everything. John

Hi Merri!  I just attended your writer’s camp with my dad this past weekend.  I didn’t get to express how much I appreciated all that you and Gary did for us this weekend because we were in a hurry to get to the airport.  Letting us stay in your cottage and having us for your writers camp was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life! Gary and Merri’s stories of adventure, success, your lessons, and advice are truly priceless!!

This camp has inspired me. Writing has always come naturally for me but I never was able to view it as a business opportunity.

This camp has shown me not only that writing can be profitable, but HOW to make it profitable! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with me. In my lifetime, I could only hope to see the success that you and Gary have achieved.

I not have only signed up for your newsletter, but I can’t stop spreading the word to my friends about my experience. Thanks again for your amazing hospitality,  Mitchell

If you accept our invitation, the course hammers, even bombards you with the absolute, vital importance of starting small.  We live in the era of epublishing that makes small “big”.  This plays perfectly into the hands of small businesses and copywriters as we just happened to have a perfect advantage right now in the marketplace.

Now let’s get to the important stuff.  Our life is less stressed (not stress free – every business has stress) but Self Publishing to sell can be a low stress business… no commuting… choose your own hours… immersed in your passions with like minded souls. Work at home. How refreshing!

Here I am at our Florida home… at work?

Here I am at work in the Blue Ridge.  Better than a cubicle for sure!

You can have fun every day doing what you love as you accomplish goals that are important… to you… and are a service to your community.

What do you love? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing your passion and do something good for the world at the same time?

Your passion and self publishing create…magic, wealth, happiness.

Three other things you gain.

#1: Respect. If you are not a recluse like Merri and me, you’ll find yourself the center of attention at social events and with your friends and in business because publishing is highly respected.

#2: Power. Everyone wants publishers to distribute good information about them. And everyone fears publishers a bit. The pen IS mightier than the sword!

#3: Protection. Writers are protected by the 1st Amendment of 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. Publishers enjoy almost more freedom than any other occupation because of the Freedom of the Press. This is so powerful because the first amendment is actually a part of the Bill of Rights. Just in case you missed this in school (as most students did including me) here are the exact words of this amendment:  “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

You become the press and you are set free.  You cannot get more protection than that.

Shall we get back to the money and lifestyle? What can self publishing do financially for you?

Why enroll in this course?  Self publishing can easily fulfill all of your material needs.  More importantly it throws you together with fantastically interesting people from all walks of life.   You all share a common goal… to write… to sell… to earn.  This create magic for all.

You can enjoy this wonderful lifestyle.  Married, single, rich, poor, in good and bad health, educated and not, travelers and those who want to just stay at home.  This is why self publishing works for… those who want a gradual part time improvement in life and for those who want to make big enhancements now.

This course works for anyone who would like to write or publish or both.   See how published products can include compilations, catalogues, CDS, interviews. Plus look at how to sell treks, tours, visits, products and services through self publishing.

You’ll see how one delegate who attended the workshop used her publication to sell real estate.

This course is for individuals and couples. We include those who want their own publishing system together as a family business.

This course is not theory. Merri and I share our real time experiences. We start at the beginning over 40 years ago but mainly look at how we earn hundreds of thousands and even millions a year in our exciting lifestyle…right now.  We study and listen to many other self publishers.  We help you keep your business stay tuned to he times with the course updates.

Self employed, retired, professionals and those who are employed who want to add extra income or who want to change their life entirely will benefit. Previous course delegates have included investors, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, other professionals and those who already own their own business and of course retirees.

You can start self publishing to sell with no printing costs, no shelf space, no inventory, no postal delivery.  Most of the publishing expenses are eliminated.

Buyers of books fall into niches so the course helps you learn how to focus on a niche and create trust with the readers in that niche..   Choosing the correct niche is a first step in the elusive process of capturing the national psyche, a key to publishing to sell.  When you tap into this phenomenon, you can earn millions just from online sales.   I know. This process has netted an extra $2,072,614.89 for my business in the past several years.

Yet the income from selling ebooks… as profitable as it can be… is only a part of the earning potential.  Efforts you make today can generate income for dozens of years, sometimes for life!

The eBook revolution makes this entire process easier because Amazon sales can be like prospecting tools.

Some amazing websites and businesses have been and will continue to be built using eBooks.  Kindle sales act like a search engine.  They are the starting point that attracts the original readers who become the nucleus of your success.

Technology especially favors small publishers today. Portable computers, the internet, wireless access, on demand printing smart phones and electronic readers all create enormous new potential for small publishers.

You can receive both the written course and a recorded weekend seminar, in an MP3 file, in this course.

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

You also receive a recorded webinar conducted by our webmaster, David Cross (at no extra cost).

Merri and I have always preferred to start our micro businesses  through cash flow.  However in the early the days of our business I found myself raising extra capital several times.  I have also helped numerous businesses raise money to get started.  This report shares several experiences to give a thumbnail sketch of how to raise to get a micro business off the ground.

One of the biggest reasons readers do not get started being their own boss, gaining a second income and taking a first step towards greater freedom, is they can’t find the funds to get of the ground.  This is so important and I am so dedicated to gaining  more independence  that I’ll send this report to you free even if you do not order our Self Fulfilled course at this time.   See the link below for the free report  “How to Finance a Small Business” free and without obligation.

In addition you receive all the updates we make in this course during the year.  Businesses need to evolve.  Merri and I continue to publish and have our independent businesses.  Some basics have remained for decades, but new strategies occur all the time throughout the year.  We’ll be sending along updates that share our most recent experiences as we learn and continue to grow our international micro business from Smalltown USA.
