Simply Profitable


Simple thinking can make everything you do simply profitable.

Take a box, for example.  What can be simpler than that?

Make a box a certain size and of a certain metal and it changes everything!

containers

Stack up simple ideas for success.

Spotting value is simple when we look for it in the ordinary things that we understand.  We can use shipping containers as an example of how to use simplicity to find value.  They are just boxes.  Yet a few who understood boxes and shipping, came up with an idea that has turned global commerce upside down.

We can see the simplicity (and the huge profit) after reading: “The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger” written by Marc Levinson.  This book tells how the simple idea of a metal box changed the world.

In April 1956, a refitted oil tanker carried fifty-eight shipping containers from Newark to Houston.  That was the beginning of a simpler way of shipping.  This evolution in shipping required huge sums of money, both from private investors and from ports and created opportunity for more than shippers.

Here are just a few ways that this simple boxy idea has created value.

I saw the idea of containers create profits nearly half a century ago when I was selling investments in Hong Kong.

Originally the idea of my Hong Kong business was to sell US mutual funds.  The US market crashed and everyone who sold this type of investment had to find other investments to offer.

I began offering real estate in Fiji.  We even had some small private Fijian islands, like the one shown below, for sale.

fiji

That was the beginning of my real estate tour business.

Another investment salesman started offering containers.  

He created a program where investors purchased containers which were turned over to management companies who leased them to shippers.  The investment purported to generate an attractive guaranteed income.   From what I have seen, they may not be a safe investment.  I hate that word “guaranteed” when it comes to investments.  All investments have risk!

However, this is not the point.  The fact is that investment salesmen saw an opportunity created by boxes.

Other people created other businesses.  Right now some businesses buy shipping containers and resell them, on a rent-to-own basis, to people for all sorts of uses.

Some people have figured how to use containers as bridges.

Others build inexpensive, but very strong, houses and buildings from them.

Some container houses are very simple.

Some container houses are quite complex.

Here is the lesson learned… “There is great opportunity in simple ideas”.

What can be more simple than a box?  Yet we can see that shipping containers have created all types of opportunity.

This message is not about the value of shipping containers.

The point is that we all know something well, and that knowledge has inherent value.

A box is a box but the unique understanding by some is what made the box special and valuable in shipping, in investing and in construction.

If we watch for evolution in areas and things that we know, we’ll can see new ideas… really simple things that are not yet common knowledge.  Watch for small changes about what you know that can create business opportunities that make a big difference to your freedom and wealth.  You’ll find special opportunity, just for you.

Be Richer Than a Billionaire… with Small Steps

Use Small Steps to Create Your Success

Consider this.

During the last recession, a German billionaire quietly put on his coat, told his wife “I have to go to the office for a while”, and drove to a railway embankment near his home, where he lay on the frozen tracks and waited patiently for a train to crush him to death.

This man was ranked as one of the 100 richest men in the world. His personal fortune had passed $10 billion.  But even though he was worth billions, the global recession left him feeling out of control.

A Telegraph article on why he committed suicide (1) said:   He did not need the money.  He lived so modestly that he cycled to work on a 15-year-old bike for most of the year, and in bad weather he drove a four-year-old VW Golf.  He had no bodyguards or servants, lived in an unimposing chalet-style house in the small town of Blaubeuren, his home for the past 60 years, without so much as a CCTV camera for protection, and stopped off at his local pub on his way home each night to share a drink with the regulars.

The blame for his demise was placed on loss of control. “His companies were his life.  He was going to lose control of them and felt he would lose control of his life” a friend said.

His  family said the “powerlessness of not being able to do anything” had been the key to his suicide.

Most of us can’t imagine becoming billionaires, but we can imagine losing control.  

The world is changing at an increasingly frightening pace.  How can we keep up? 

We don’t have the background to build huge businesses.  We don’t have enough capital to start a business.  We don’t have enough time to begin again either.  Yet the relentless transformation of just about everything can make us feel powerless.

Well here’s some good news…

We all have the power to be free, have purpose and have a sense of control.  In fact that power is more than a sense of control.  We have the actual power to take control of our lives.

We can start taking that power right now…

All we need is one small win.  The power of a small win is that it makes it easier to have the next small win.  Successes do not have to be big deals.  The smallest of  wins help us feel better and to lead us to greater success!

This is why I want to introduce you to our special course “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher”.

You have something of value.  You might not even know it.

I want to help you find and sell it…

That sale will be your first small win and believe me your first small win can lead to something big… really huge…. again and again.

I know because I have used the technique I want to share with you for almost 50 years…

My wife Merri and I are entering our fifth decade of writing and self publishing.  Though we are financially secure without a penny of debt, we keep working because we love what we do.

You regain and retain control of your life when you learn to write to sell  for profit and passion.

This is why we have recorded our “Self Publishing Writer’s Camp” to help you get started in a micro self publishing business that starts small and maybe like our business stays small, tightly focused, but highly profitable, in fun and highly fulfilling ways.

We love writing and self publishing so much that years ago we offered to conduct a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500.  80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Now you can enjoy that same $1,500 course online for only $79.

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

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

Here are  few stories of how those who attended our Writer’s Camps have used what they learned to take small steps that led to greater control, increased success and incredible fulfillment in their lives.

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.

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 a 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 2013 to 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.

Bill Winter

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 Lama. 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!”

Delegates from our last camp wrote:

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.
 
Donna/Jeanna

Another wrote: Have just returned from the writing seminar conducted at your farm in Ashe County, North Carolina, I thought I’d give you my take on what I experienced. To suggest that the location, hosts, seminar content, and accommodations were adequate would be an understatement.

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

The son of a father son team sent this note:

Hi Merri!  I just attended your writers 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 workshop 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 because Self Publishing 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!

gary-scott-image

Here I am at our Florida home… at work?

gary scott

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.

Merri and I, for example, love helping people get jobs.  So we used self publishing to create a foundation (Land of the Sun Foundation) to help the indigenous learn how to get work.  The foundation has donated nearly a million dollars in Ecuador to create jobs.

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.

The recorded workshops shows how self publishing can fulfill your material needs.

You can enjoy this wonderful lifestyle whether you are married or single, rich or poor, in good or bad health, educated or not. Self publishing works for travelers and those who want to just stay at home.

This workshop helps anyone who wants to write or publish or both.   See how published products can include compilations, catalogues, CDS, interviews. Plus look at how to develop treks, tours, visits, products and services.

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 workshop 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.

Whether you are self employed, retired,  a professional or are employed, this course is for you if you want to add extra income or who want to change their life entirely.  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.

Self publishing is now easier to start than ever before because of online publishing.

Which would you rather have… 6% of $10 or 70% of $3?

The math to this question brings an obvious answer and creates opportunity for those who want a writer’s life.

Starting with online books allows you to lower price…  increase volume and cut out a publisher, distributor and book store who normally absorb up to 88% of the income created by a book.

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

The writer keeps 70%.

Amazon keeps 30%.

A typical writer earning 12% of the wholesale book sales makes about $.60 per $9.99 book sale.  An Amazon.com writer makes $2.10 on a $3 sale.

Buyers of books fall into niches.  Choosing the correct niche is a first step in the elusive process of capturing the national psyche.  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.

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

New Way to Earn Globally


The ability to earn extra income may be one of the most important assets you can have when living in Ecuador.  Having an Ecuador export business is one good way to earn.

ecuador-exports

Roberto Ribadeneira will speak at our seminar about how he can shop, ship and charge for Ecuador export businesses.

This is why we have the Ecuador export expert from our Ateam Ecuador, Roberto Ribadeneira join Merri, me, Thomas Fischer of JGAM, two overseas tax experts during our October 5-6-7, 2012 seminar.

The seminar is divided into three sessions.   One session is “How to Have an International Micro Business.”  Learn how to use modern technology to start global micro businesses with minimal investments of time and capital.

By starting small and building with stepping stones and a harmonious focus, Merri and I have learned how to almost own several profit generating phrases at Google.  We, along with our webmaster David Cross share the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income as well.

The seminar shares how we use the first four of “Seven Ps”  (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key word phrases.  Then you learn how to use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P is the Prospecting Path and Seventh P is the Presentation to create income.

We use this system successfully on the internet and share what we do with you as we look at ways you too can have a high income generating business… even if you never leave your home.   We are very thankful to be one of the most read sites in Ecuador and do very well in the US and Canada too.

Our seminar helps you learn how to use the same tactics we use… in your micro business.

Our sales doubled during the recession.  Our list of readers increased over 100%.  Since the economy picked up our business growth has slowed but business is still growing. This is how good, value oriented business grow by the way.

Value oriented micro businesses should increase steadily in good times.  They do not get caught overextending in euphoria. Then during bad times they are in a position to do really well! 

Knowing the micro business philosophies we follow can help you use the internet in business if you desire.

The Western economy has changed… probably forever.  The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.

The economy will recover… but the way people earn and work… and how the money is distributed and to whom especially… has been profoundly altered.  This is especially true in value added countries like Canada… the USA and most of Europe.

We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in society and in the way we work because technology brings us low cost administration, low cost access to data, low cost communication, and low cost travel, plus the opening of markets beyond logic that rely more on passion and experience than on efficiency and cost.

We look at these economic and structural changes, and what to do about them in the business portion of our seminar.

We’ll see how markets are shifting from materialistic needs to emotional needs.

We’ll see great opportunity for writers in the following markets:

Love-friendship-control-freedom-tradition-change-big answers-recognition and care. These are emotional needs that create expanding demand and business opportunity. The next generation is having more involvement in every step of the buying process.  Uniting the body and mind is an emerging market.  Natural physical health, fitness will expand but botox and insulin sales will also grow.

Mental health, retreats and spas prosper.  The health of the planet is becoming a more important business.There is a shift of emphasis from GDP to GWB  (General Wellness Barometer Happiness Factor).  Business will operate with more passion.

Learn about other business possibilities…

In the global micro business sessions we’ll see ideas on how to:

* Create Export Businesses

Roberto will look at honey as one business opportunity for someone who wants to earn abroad.

We are always watching for special dots that no one else might see but we can connect and share an opportunity with our readers.

Screen shot 2012-09-13 at 11.59.29 AM

In this case the opportunity is Ecuador honey.

The opportunity comes because there is nothing like this Ecuador honey in the world.

Roberto sent me a note with these honey photos.

Gary, These are varietal honeys. Exclusive unique. I’ll bring this to the October conference.  No one in the world has this.  100% organic… really authentic.

It is little known that the indigenous community is a quiet nation of bee keepers.   They are really good bee keepers… unbelievable ones… offering special aged honey… royal jelly… and more.  The shamans use honey and bees in their healing ceremonies.

Roberto also wrote:   Yes, this is an exclusive organic product. I just met with the owner and the potential is huge. I am working with the logistics right now to see how we get to the USA. But this is a premium unique product. They know so much about this is crazy. I’ll send you the details, how it works, etc. I’d love to discuss it with everyone at the October seminar. No one else has anything like this.  The producers are a small and elite company.

What does it take to export from Ecuador? Here is a business lesson from the Texas Rangers.

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.  However it turned out that there was one thing that even these famous lawmen could not overcome…. red tape.

Almost no one has heard of the 106 rules the current administration has passed in the last three years that collectively will cost taxpayers more than $46 billion annually in compliance and lost productivity. 

Roberto Ribadeneira  resolved this dilemma for our Ecuador Living Club members by creating a export logistic service that takes care of all the red tape and provides all the services that are needed to export!  This is another reason that I am so excited about the honey!

Roberto now is offering this service to Ecuador Living Club members for a set fee so exporters can price their products accordingly.

This is a great service that is being used by numerous large farms in Ecuador now.   Roberto provides every detail for importing products into the USA and this can be used for honey as well as roses.   Merri and I have used Roberto’s logistics service for almost half a decade.

One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.

You can sell your import direct to the customer.  Roberto charges the customer and delivers the order.   Everything is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and product 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.   Our Ecuador Living Club and the Ecuador export tours make this service possible from smaller businesses.   As you can imagine a service of this nature requires substantial set up and personal attention. Normally this would be available only to larger businesses such as rose plantations.   Due to the size of our readership… the size limitation for acceptance has been removed.  This is an exclusive service available to our Ecuador Living Club members and to the delegates who attend Ecuador tours conducted by Jean Marie Butterlin.

Turning your passion into profit with your own business makes sense in these technological times… if you can outrun growth in red tape.  The Ecuadorshop logistic service can help stop red tape from putting your business in the red.

Delegates at Writer’s Camp discussing how to build a list.

The key to a successful global business is a good list.

Whether you use Amazon.com and Kindle… Google or other search engines… print advertising… word of mouth or direct sales, the ultimate goal is to have a list of like minded souls ho like your products whether they be products or services… tangible or electronic.

This is why we we quite giddy to read that one of our Writer’s Camp delegates connected very well at Amazon.com with her first ebook Cook Book for Kindle.

Nickki Goff wrote how she used the tactics from our course and one other self publishing system to create over 10,000 downloads of her ebook in 5 days. This brought her 20 great reviews!

Now her eCookbook, “Easy Quinoa Recipes” is consistently making 10+ sales per day!  See how to get this book free here.

This has given Nicki a change to use Amazon.com’s  algorithms to build a list that launches her into a successful micro business with global earnings on ebook sales.

We have written a report plus a recorded interview about how Nickki did manged to get 10,000 downloads in less than a week… our competitor and three other valuable sources of self publishing help and  details on the next step she can take.

We will review this report and look at how to use ebooks to gain extra income.

Super Thinking looks far beyond investing and business in Ecuador.   They begin with a global economic update that helps integrate thinking of the past with the here and now of global economics.

Each session builds on the next to help you learn how to gain freedom, remove stress and earn more by combining powerful tools of thoughts and business action.

Session One:  Our global World present past and future… seen from outside the box.

Session Two: How to use Super thinking to have more intelligence with whole brain thinking.

Session Three:  International Micro Business – “How to Have a Global Income “.

This seminar provides a learning funnel that integrates your personal desires, skills and circumstances to current and historical global economic realities.

Here is what you learn:

* Global economic history  – how this combines with each business’s past… future… interest, skills and knowledge. 

The historical review sees  current markets for writers based around economic cycles as outlined first by Russian economist, Nikolai Kondratiev, who proposed a theory that Western capitalist economies have long term (50 to 60 years) cycles of boom followed by depression. These business cycles are to this day called “Kondratiev Waves”.

Kondratiev’s thoughts were refined  by Austrian economist, Joseph Shumpeter, which we have extensively researched and follow the global economy (and US stock market) and how it has moved through a series of bull…. and then a bear (a period of no growth) cycles that each run around 15 year bull as shown in this graph below.

Dow Charts

These stock market bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.

These cycles are a driving force in the creation of  opportunity.

These cycles are intricately connected with the new waves of productivity that grow from the great human platform of combat. The cycle goes like this.

An economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war. Struggles for survival in the war (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War (WWIII), super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.

Each new invention helped win a war.  Shifting the technology to domestic use… after the war… created a boom.

Each boom leads to excess.

Each excess led to a correction.  The correction creates an economic downturn.

The economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war.

The global economy is currently in a major correction cycle… at the correct time and we should expect that a war (or some major struggle of the epoch or threat of war such as the Cold War) should begin to build!   This latest downturn started almost exactly (1998), 16 years after the last boom began (1982)…which began after the last great human struggle called the Cold War that lasted about a decade when the Soviet Union collapsed.

If the cycle repeats, the struggle should build now due to the poor economy.  If the cycles repeat then the bottom is around 2012-2013.  Everything will seem bleakest… darkest… blackest.

This will be the best time of all in decades to invest!

The epoch of the Cold War fought Maggie Thatcher and Ronnie Reagan fought the evil empire (1981 to 1989).  The war was won when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the Soviet Empire dissolved in 1991. That war created an arms race that created new technology including internet.

The economic war that follows the boom comes from the domestication of technology developed during the struggle.

The technological burst off WWIII accelerated when access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) which developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET) providing access to supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations.

In 1982 the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Commercial internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the late 1980s and 1990s.

The dot-com bubble (also referred to as the Internet bubble and the Information Technology Bubble) was the post war boom, a speculative bubble covering roughly 1995–2000.

The next step is to decide where this cycle is and how this creates business opportunity through distortions, contrasts and trends.

Contrasts and distortions in currencies, markets and social and demographic shifts to spots trends.

For example we look at how each new wave of technology creates new problems.  Shifts from WWII included increased fertilization in farming and more women at work.  This caused dietary differences in the American family that led to an explosion of health food stores.

* Problems & Trends Create Income Possibilities

Surprisingly the inventors of Graham Crackers and Kellogg Corn Flakes were among some of the first to spur an interest in health food so in the 1920s and 1930s health food stores did start to open in the USA selling products such as blackstrap molasses and brewer’s yeast.  However health food stores as we know them did not start to boom until the 1960s in connection to the newly emerging ecology movement and counterculture to modern living, intense fertilization, pesticides, women at work, etc.

Image the wealth you would have gained  writing about that trend coming!

We  explore potential counter cultures created by the internet… a WWIII technology… that could erupt and ways to write and do business based on this.

We pay special attention to economic distortions.  Distortions create writing opportunities because your micro business is the best investment you can make backed by your own time, effort and energy.

Part Three of the Camp: Frequency Modulation – Tapping our inner resources for outer expansion. As change comes faster we must become smarter… more flexible and enhance our ability to embrace and profits from the never ending shifts we face.

The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a different form of frequency modulation that opens enormous opportunity for expansion, understanding, peacefulness as well as greater wealth.

FM teaching uses frequency (in music and with each sense… sight…. smell, tactile and even smell) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  This brings forth the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

FM creates relaxed concentration… a key to happiness, health and success.

You learn whole brain thinking that can help improve your freedom, satisfaction and income through business.

This part of the seminar helps us integrate their brain waves so they are more intelligent, intuitive and relaxed.

This workshop shows how to get into and stay in a state of relaxed concentration… a mental state shown to enhance almost every human capability… especially writing.

Merri and I are explorers so we have used this techniques for decades. We  are always looking for what’s next… trying to stay on or ahead of the leading edge and need ways to think outside he box.

The Super Thinking Workshop shares how to live better…. using frequency modulation to be smarter… stronger…. more energetic… and healthier.

Most of us have never so many problems that create opportunity as those that face us now.  A growing global population… depletion of natural resources and technology are bring social and financial shifts at a pace never seen before.

These shifts will rob many of their financial well being, but fortunately the same technology that is creating the change can also help you gain prosperity like you have never imagined.  We look forward to sharing these riches with you.

We are in our 44th year of business and we share what we have learned and where this is leading our activities in our upcoming seminar. Join us.

Each seminar updates how we doing business globally, and even how we are investing… and why… right now. Join Merri, me

Spotting new trends and applying them to our micro business has brought us a strong and continual flow of income. More importantly the process has been fulfilling…. beneficial to society and healthy.    Now you can benefit from the latest… and perhaps strongest… of all the trends we have stumbled upon.

Applying the concepts of super thinking to spotting trends over the past 44 years has helped thousands of our readers make and save millions.   The success of our readers has been a driving force in our lives yet we have always wanted to do more so continued looking deeper at ways we can share how to have income, stability, good health and contentment.

New River State Park Facility

Our Super Thinking courses each have a focus… in this upcoming course we feature Super Thinking + International Investing and Business.

The key that makes these courses unique… like nothing else available are the Super Thinking sessions that have been created from Merri’s and my experience with ancient wisdom from Europe, Asia and the Andes.  Part of this wisdom is aimed at getting our minds into a state of relaxed concentration so we can think clearly despite the bombarding of noise in the news, over the net and on TV.

Super Thinking returns us to our natural though patterns and there is no better place to do this like in nature… in deep woods surrounded by forests… away from the maddening crowds.

The park is only seven miles from West Jefferson. The drive is sublime especially in October during the leaf change when the forest looks like this.

new-river-state-park

The park’s website describes the park:  Rugged hillsides, pastoral meadows and farmlands surround what is believed to be one of the oldest rivers in North America the New River. Its waters are slow and placid. Its banks are fertile and covered with wildflowers. Dedicated as a National Scenic River in 1976, this gentle river is the centerpiece of New River State Park.

park

The New River area still maintains an old-fashioned charm. Mountain roads are narrow and winding, dotted with small farms, churches and country stores. The river itself is tranquil, offering good bass fishing, trout streams, excellent birding and inspiring mountain scenery. But perhaps the best way to absorb and appreciate the river’s peacefulness is from the seat of a canoe as it glides across the slow-moving waters. Four areas with access to this waterway make up more than 2,200 acres of New River State Park and provide spots for camping, canoeing, picnicking and fishing.

You’ll enjoy a nice seven mile drive through glorious autumn woods to the park entrance.

How to Prosper in 2012


Here’s a way to get a good start in the New Year.  Let my error of last year make you a hero in 2012.

Happy New Year!

Sometimes… no matter how much experience one has… there are ways to screw up…  as I recently did… again.

See below how this mistake can bring extra cheer to you in 2012.

See how this error can help you attend a powerful New York investing seminar FREE plus also get a FREE rose bouquet as you learn how to earn extra income… protect wealth… have better health and become a hero (or heroine as the case may be) as well.

First, let me share how rosy our holiday has been… filled with Ecuador roses.  

Roses like these by the way below will be part of your heroship because in a minute you’ll see how to get an Ecuador rose bouquet absolutely free…. (exactly at the most important time.)

We received our holiday roses and mixed them with gladiolas. This really stretches four dozen roses so even after sharing, we still had a number of wonderful bouquets around the house.

Some have become wilted a bit now they are nine days old but most still look good.

ecuador-roses

Ecuador roses and glads in…

Fwd: ecuador-roses

our kitchen and…

Fwd: ecuador-roses

hall.

Let me confess…it’s my screw up that can bring you a FREE Ecuador rose bouquet in 2012.

Merri and I have been conducting seminars for over 30 years.

In that time we have learned many lessons.  One important lesson is… do not conduct a seminar anywhere near Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s Day.

So what did I do for 2012?

Before I admit everything, please let me mitigate this by saying that scheduling these events is not the easiest task in the world.

One has to take into account US holidays, Canadian holidays,  Ecuadorian holidays… religious holidays of all sorts… what one’s competitors are doing, what our friends at Jyske Bank are doing and so forth.

What more can I say.  I simply goofed under pressure and set up our first International Business & Investing seminar of the year for February 10-12  in Mt. Dora, Florida.

In other words, this course’s schedule is not near… not close… but right on the weekend before Valentine’s Day.  I shudder!

Plus once our schedule is set and reservations come in…the dates are pretty well set in stone.  In the last 30 years or so I have missed a seminar only twice… once when my dad died and once year before last year when my mother had a serious illness. (She recovered really nicely thank you very much.)

If Merri, our kids and my mom (plus me of course) are breathing and are likely to continue to do so… then our seminars are conducted!

So I realized: “I had to turn lemons into lemonade.”

I had to create a Valentine’s celebration as part of our February seminar.

Here is what I am going to do for you…. to make you a Valentine’s hero and still let you attend that seminar!

If you attend our course this February 10 to 12  and bring your partner!  I’ll give you a bouquet of beautiful Ecuador roses to enjoy at the seminar.  If your spouse does not come, you can take the roses home.  You arrive back home on Valentine’s Day, and with some of the nicest roses you can imagine, to say “Happy Valentine’s Day”!

You’ll be a Valentine hero!

Yet as mentioned I made another error that creates another free benefit for you that I’ll share in a moment.

First, let me describe the benefits (beyond being a Valentine HERO) of attending the seminar.

This International Business and Investing seminar in Mt. Dora (about an hour from Orlando airport) that begins February 10 includes our Frequency Modulation workshop that helps you learn how to be more intelligent so your investing and business are more successful.

The seminar contains three parts… where to invest now… how to have a funky micro business for alternative income and how to increase intelligence with Frequency Modulation.

Session #1: Where to invest now.

Our investing seminars share a seven step investing philosophy that integrates personal desires, skills and circumstances to global economic and financial realities.

The first three steps in our investing sessions look at where each individual should invest in a financial discipline we call three phase investing. Phase one is your PIEC (personal Income Earning Corridor). This is what you are best at… based on you… your past… your future… your interest, skills and knowledge. This is followed by your most conservative safeguard investments and the third phase is your high risk speculations.

These three phases are then matched to current markets based around economic cycles as outlined first by Russian economist, Nikolai Kondratiev, who proposed a theory that Western capitalist economies have long term (50 to 60 years) cycles of boom followed by depression. These business cycles are to this day called “Kondratiev Waves”.

Kondratiev’s thoughts were refined by the Austrian economist, Joseph Shumpeter.  We have extensively researched and follow the global economy (and US stock market) and how it has moved through a series of bull…. and then a bear (a period of no growth) cycles that each run around 15 year bull as shown in this graph below.

Dow Charts

These stock market bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.

These cycles are intricately connected with the new waves of productivity that grow from the great human platform of combat. The cycle goes like this.

An economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war. Struggles for survival in the war (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War (WWIII), super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.

Each new invention helped win a war.  Shifting the technology to domestic use… after the war… created a boom.

Each boom leads to excess.

Each excess led to a correction.  The correction creates an economic downturn.

The economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war.

The global economy is currently in a major correction cycle… at the correct time and we should expect that a war (or some major struggle of the epoch or threat of war such as the Cold War) should begin to build!   This latest downturn started almost exactly (1998), 16 years after the last boom began (1982)…which began after the last great human struggle called the Cold War that lasted about a decade when the Soviet Union collapsed.

If the cycle repeats, the struggle should build now due to the poor economy.  If the cycles repeat then the bottom is around 2012-2013.  Everything will seem bleakest… darkest… blackest.

This will be the best time of all in decades to invest!

The epoch of the Cold War brought Maggie Thatcher and Ronnie Reagan fought the evil empire (1981 to 1989).  The war was won when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the Soviet Empire dissolved in 1991. That war created an arms race that created new technology including internet.

The economic war that follows the boom comes from the domestication of technology developed during the struggle.

The technological burst off WWIII accelerated when access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) which developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET) providing access to supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations.

In 1982 the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Commercial internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the late 1980s and 1990s.

The dot-com bubble (also referred to as the Internet Bubble and the Information Technology Bubble) was the post war boom, a speculative bubble covering roughly 1995–2000.

Now we are heading into the twelve or thirteen years of the latest bear cycle.

Deciding where this cycle is and when it will turn is the 4th part of our seven step systematic approach to investing. 

Part five of our investing session looks for value and we follow the analysis of Keppler Asset Management which monitors global equity markets and determines which markets offer the best value now.
These markets currently include the major markets of:  Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Norway and the emerging markets of Brazil, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey at equal weights.

Step Six looks at contrasts and distortions in currencies, markets and social and demographic shifts to spots trends.

For example we look at how each new wave of technology creates new problems.  Shifts from WWII included increased fertilization in farming and more women at work.  This caused dietary differences in the American family that led to an explosion of health food stores.

Surprisingly the inventors of Graham Crackers and Kellogg Corn Flakes were among some of the first to spur an interest in health food so in the 1920s and 1930s health food stores did start to open in the USA selling products such as blackstrap molasses and brewer’s yeast.  However health food stores as we know them did not start to boom until the 1960s in connection to the newly emerging ecology movement and counterculture to modern living, intense fertilization, pesticides, women at work, etc.

Image the wealth you would have gained had you seen that trend coming!

We’ll explore potential counter cultures created by the internet… a WWIII technology… that could erupt and ways to invest and do business based on this.

We’ll pay special attention to currencies and distortions on fundamentals versus interest rates so we can find ways to borrow low and deposit high. Thomas Fischer of Jyske helps us when he speaks in these sessions.

Plus we review my portfolio and where I am invested now.

The seventh step on how to earn extra income yourself shifts into the second session of the seminar… how to create alternatives with an unusual (funky) micro business.

Your own micro business is the best investment you can make because this can be a small investment magnified by your own time, effort and energy.

In the micro business session we’ll look at seven ways you can earn extra income from turn key programs in countries we have created for readers with …. Jyske as an introducer…  exporting Ecuador roses… offering essential oils… bio degradable Bio Wash…  Swiss Made Phytobiodermie health products… Ecuador exports and putting on seminars and tours.

However this is just a small part of the micro business sessions. You’ll learn how to build any business you love and turn your passion into profit.

A big part of the session will be able how to earn from writing and publishing!

The third session in the seminar teaches how to become more intelligent, successful and fulfilled through Frequency Modulation.

We have been incorporating the ideas of Frequency Modulation into our courses and seminars for decades… but we have now super charged this workshop within the seminar.

Frequency modulation integrates:

* Logic with intuition.  The benefit is increased prosperity from better adaptation to change.

* Desire with action.  The benefit is more enjoyment and fulfillment from life.

* Good health with everlasting wealth. The benefit is reduction of stress, more energy and feeling better.

Join us here, this February at…

emp-terrorst-attack

our Florida home…where we will enjoy a Valentine’s Day celebration.

Bringing delegates to our home is an example of a quantum wealth benefit.

This is fun.

Yet there is more.  This process helps delegates hear, see and feel the authentic reality of the ideas we share.  We do not spout ivory tower, unattainable theory.  Our seminars share what we do… how we live… and how we have developed our lifestyle. Our mission is to help you see what we do, so you can blend our lessons into a lifestyle that is better… happier… richer…easier for you.

I have never heard of other seminars offering this… an integration of what we speak about with our actual lifestyle.

The third part of our seminar is the Frequency Modulation workshop where you learn ways to use super thinking to tap into deeper intelligence.  We share how to use this extra intelligence in business, investing and life so you improve the way you absorb, retain, recall information and think forever.

Thomas Fischer and I will conduct the investing portion of the seminar.

Gary Scott and Thomas Fischer.

On the subject of Thomas Fischer and JGAM… let me reveal my second error… not checking with my strategic partners before I set our schedule.

At Jyske Bank’s last Global Wealth seminar in Copenhagen I enjoyed the privilege of speaking with some of the best known economists and investment managers in the world… Kenneth Rogoff, Jeff Rubin, Tommy Leung, David Darst and many other global investing experts.

I was privileged to speak about multi currency investing, but also was able to listen to this wealth of knowledge as well.

gary-scott-copenhagen

Here is a panel at the Copenhagen seminar including Lars Stouge and Thomas Fischer of JGAM, plus Peter Berezin of BCA Research and David Darst of Morgan Stanley plus yours truly.  These were incredible learning sessions for me.

These are speakers… especially David Darst and Peter Berezin one does not want to miss.

Now due to my failure to plan correctly you have a chance to hear both of these incredibly intelligent and experienced speakers FREE.

Last year I set our schedule to conduct our:

Super Thinking + Spanish course in Mt. Dora, Florida, January 12-15, 2012  and our

International Investing & Business Made EZ,  Mt. Dora Florida February 10-12, 2012.

Because I did not check with Jyske Bank, our strategic partner, I missed the fact that Jyske was conducting a one day January 27, 2012 seminar for Jyske clients in New York.   Thomas Fischer,  David Darst, Managing Director and Chief Investment Strategist of Morgan Stanley and Peter Berezin, Managing Editor, BCA Research and others investing experts will speak.

I was invited (along with our many readers who also use Jyske) but due to that Florida schedule cannot attend.

This is an incredible lineup of speakers and I cannot be there.  AGHHHH!  However I contacted Thomas Fischer and made him a deal so that delegates of either our January or February seminars in Mt. Dora could also attend the New York seminar FREE.

This is an incredible opportunity because David Darst is managing director and chief investment strategist at Morgan Stanley, Smith Barney with responsibility for asset allocation and investment strategy. He was the founding president of the Morgan Stanley Investment Group after he joined Morgan Stanley 14 years ago from Goldman Sachs where he held senior management posts within the Equities Division and earlier, for six years as resident manager of their private bank in Zurich.  He  earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and was awarded a BA degree in Economics from Yale University.  He has lectured extensively at Wharton, Columbia, INSEAD and New York University business schools. For nine years he served as a visiting faculty member at Yale College, Yale School of Management and Harvard Business School.

Wow… what a resume.

David is an incredibly powerful speaker and a key part of  his beliefs is that the power of American innovation could create a huge positive economic recovery and this offered excellent investing opportunity.

Thomas Fischer will lead this seminar and will bring what he learns and share with us at the February International Investing and Business seminar.

However if you enroll in either of our January or February seminars you can meet these speakers in New York this January FREE.

This is an important time to have timely advice from such experienced speakers because the current tough economic times increases opportunity, IF, finances survive!

One of David Darst’s graphs at Jyske’s last seminar agrees with our belief in the 15 year bull and bear cycles.

morgan-stanley-graph

The key for spotting the greatest investment opportunities is to spot the next big trend… the technology that will spin out of WWIV.

The key is that a problem must have such severe consequences (such as losing the war and being destroyed) that all stops… all logics of return on investment are ignored. Technology and research are pushed full steam ahead regardless of cost.

The key to great success now is spotting the war.  It could be against global warming.  The battle could be against a plague…. new bacteria that resists antibiotics.  A bad year of crops could create famine and the war would be on hunger.

The solutions will create huge opportunities and we are keeping our eyes and research focused on how markets will evolve.

We look forward to meeting you in January or February so we can share what we learn with you.

According to Scottish tradition New Year’s Day is called “Hogmany”.  It is a big celebration and the first visitor in the New Year (called the first foot visitor) after midnight, should be dark to ensure good luck for the house, the first foot should be male, dark (this is believed to be a throwback to the Viking days when blond strangers arriving on your doorstep meant trouble).

Historians believe that Hogmany in Scotland evolved from the Vikings who, living so far north paid great attention to the passing of the shortest day. In parts of Scotland, New Year is called Yules, from the Scandinavian word. The New Year is the best time for an important winter solstice holiday when family and friends gathered for a feast and to exchange gifts, which came to be called hogma.

The visitor should be carrying a lump of coal so here it is for you.

Here is your lump of coal… plus our gifts… the Jyske seminar in New York and FREE Valentine’s roses.

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2019.

I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.

According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 27, 2018 the cost of interest on the total US public debt of $21,845,329,154,412.01.  Tht’s 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.

Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.

US debt

The good news is I sent a note like this last year ad I was wrong.

Last year when I sent that note the debt was $20,467,375,664,755.32 (20 trillion+).  The debt has increased almost 1.4 trillion dollars in 2018.

This is good news and bad… the rock and the hard spot.  The bad news is that the rock (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion then) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

The $5 Trillion Error.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… only in 2019 and debt has shot past 21 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $483 billion on the 20 trillion of debt.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9,229,172,659,218.31 (9 trillion +) the interest that year was $451,154,049,950.63 (451 billion +).

Interest payments in 2017 were 7% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 100% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

Now US dollar interest rates are rising.  In 2018 the interest costs were 8.2% higher than in 2017.   Yet the debt increase was only 6.7%.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.

Here is the very hard spot.  

Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest goes to 6% it is like the $20+ trillion national debt  rising to 40 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.

A tax increase?  Last year’s tax act reduced, not increased, revenue.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2018.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2019 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed 25,000, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2019 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

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

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

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

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

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

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

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

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

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $99 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $99.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

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

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 describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

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

This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe.  In the 1990s we took investors to Panama, Mexico and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy way to learn Spanish.

See below how my wife Merri was able to create a program that allowed students to be speaking and understanding Spanish in just three days.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak English at all.

You become one of a leading few when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says (bolds are mine): “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling. 

It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English. 

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from students who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  

Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Relaxed Concentration sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The ONLINE course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Here is the English translation of a few of the many Spanish words you now know and will never forget.  How long would it have taken you to memorize them?  How soon would you forget?

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example, action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

Some more of these words:  Combination, Attrition, Education, Vacation, Petition, Lotion, Motion, Construction, Abduction, Pronunciation, Concentration and a ton of others!

Little Things – Big Problems – Huge Opportunities


Little buttons are small things… those tiny bits that are so hard to hit with big thumbs.  Drives me crazy the thought of texting.  I want big buttons for my stumbling thumbs!  Help may be on the way… a clue for micro business and multi currency opportunities.

www.technologyreview.com

A recent article at Technologyreview.com   entitled “Kinect Turns Any Surface Into a Touch Screen” says:  Researchers combine a Kinect sensor with a pico projector to expand the possibilities for interactive screens.

A new prototype can transform a notebook into a notebook computer, a wall into an interactive display, and the palm of your hand into a smart phone display. In fact, researchers at Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University say their new shoulder-mounted device, called OmniTouch, can turn any nearby surface into an ad hoc interactive touch screen.

This is the type of venture risk that makes sense.

Because we have to stay on top of change and learn how to manage risk better, Merri and I have added a new micro business/multi currency seminar so we can share an entire year’s risk management thinking with you.

For 2012, we have now scheduled our October 5-7,  International Investing & Business Made EZ seminar in  Jefferson, North Carolina where we will look at micro business and investing ideas in water, Ecuador, smalltown USA and agriculture as well as multi currency investment around the world.  The most exciting news though is that we have also scheduled two exclusive “Think Thank” meetings (one at our home in Florida and one at our Blue Ridge house) for club members only.

Belong to the International Club so we can spend a year with you.  There are many benefits to club membership for 2012.

I-Club

International Club members meeting round a bonfire at New River Winery after a North Carolina seminar.

The International Club brings together experienced, like minded souls, who take a positive view and think outside the box..in constructive thoughtful ways.

Merri and I are in our 43rd year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and quantum lifestyles. The importance of this sharing…by like minded souls…was reinforced when a delegate from a course sent an email that said:

My Dearest Merri and Gary, Thank you for your most gracious hospitality last weekend. I am just thrilled at being a part of your group. You and Gary were exactly as I imagined you to be, warm friendly, kind, considerate, genuine, helpful, fun, sincere, what else can I say……I felt so comfortable in your presence and learned so much in your course. I was sad to leave the farm that Sunday afternoon. You made us all feel so welcome and cared about. You were so kind to make arrangements for a ride with the other delegates from the Charlotte airport. They were so nice to me and so helpful, by the time the weekend was over I felt like they were my long lost brothers. Monday morning we all had breakfast at the airport together and I was so sad to see them go, I was sad the weekend was over, perhaps sad is not the right word for how I was feeling perhaps Gratitude is a better way to describe it. Grateful for having the opportunity to share the weekend with such wonderful, like minded Human Beings, in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Merri and Gary.

Thanks to you I now have new hope and a new direction to move forward in my life.

I know by attending your classes and conferences that through education and due diligence I will make the right choices.

This delegate’s comments about “belonging and feeling like a brother” to the other delegates is a wonderful refrain we have heard from our readers, year after year.

21 years ago Merri and I created a way that readers can join us to be immersed in a year-long learning program through our International Club.

The ideas behind this program began all those years ago in Vienna, Austria while we were conducting a course there. One of our older delegates, had some sort of attack. The first fear was heart trouble. Several delegates took him to the hospital. Others stayed with him there. I don’t think that delegate was alone for a minute!

What impressed Merri and me was that no one asked the delegates to help this man.

The friendships of delegates sharing many courses had just grown so strong that it was a natural reaction, just as if a family member was ill. Fortunately, it was only travel fatigue and the delegate didn’t miss a session of the course!

When you join our International Club 2011 – 2012 you become part of a special family. The very first member to join the club all those years ago wrote, Thank you for the enjoyable and informative courses. I am pleased to be part of your international family and look forward to continuing my education at the next course.

His feeling struck a familiar chord. It has always been one of my greatest satisfactions to see how much fun delegates have getting together, sharing information and making friendships.

These courses somehow draw together like-minded souls. For this reason some delegates come back again and again. They come to learn, but also to be with their many friends made at the courses. When like-minded souls get together again and again to discuss a common purpose, magic happens! I can’t explain it in any other way-but it is true.

In a way our meetings are almost like family reunions. Perhaps it is getting together and reflecting on what has been said and what has been happening.

Learning with those who are also interested in the world creates thoughts that multiply the value of what we gain. This is hard to describe but results are most powerful and wonderful! This is to me is as important as the great financial benefit of attending many of our courses.

See our 2011 – 2012 schedule below.

We started and have continued this program for 21 years because there are wonderful benefits from having repeat delegates at courses. Having repeat delegates makes the whole course somehow more exciting for all. Being a repeat delegate makes it easier to make and keep wealth and to lock in the knowledge you gain. It’s an exciting lifestyle. We have fun, gain adventure, discovery and friendships and share ways to improve our health and wealth!

Normally we only accept membership at the end of each year… but due to the unusual risk we see now, we added this new option to club membership that entitles you to the last course in 2011 and all of 2012…in the cool Blue Ridge of North Carolina and  in Historic Old Florida.

The next saving is Seminars via MP3 (or disc) you receive FREE as a club member.  I record an update at each seminar and club members receive this.

You’ll see a very busy schedule below.  Very few club members actually attend every course and tour…but certainly some attend almost all of them!

If you attend even a few of the courses, you gain considerable savings… PLUS we record the investing and business seminars so you can have the course downloaded on your computer to listen on MP3 or on disc when you cannot attend in person.

This means that you stay in touch with all the business and investing ideas we develop at each of the investing and business seminars you cannot attend.

Here are the courses and tours where your seminar or tour fee is waived.

November 3-6, 2011  Learn Spanish in 4 Days, Mt. Dora, Florida  ($999)
January 12-15, 2012  Super Thinking + Spanish, Mt. Dora, Florida ($999)

Feb. 10-11, 2012  International Investing & Business Made EZ.  Mt. Dora, FL ($999)

March 8-11, 2012  Super Thinking + Spanish, Mt. Dora, Florida ($999)

June 22-24, 2012 International Investing & Business Made EZ.  North Carolina ($999)

October 5-7, 2012 International Investing & Business Made EZ,  Jefferson, NC. ($999)

Schedule subject to change. Always check final schedule at www.GaryAScott.com/catalog

Enroll here

There is another big saving:  $1,265 more!

When you join the club, I’ll email you our online course “International Business Made EZ”, a $299 value, plus four bonuses.  You receive the bonus course “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher”  which also has a $299 value.

Plus I email you the online course “Tangled Web – How to Have Your Own Web Based Business” another $299 value plus “Event – Full Business – How to Earn With a Seminar Business” a $349 value.

In addition you’ll receive the 52 lesson course on how to create your own website using sitesell and finally I include an internet video on how to set up a website presented by our webmaster David Cross.

These courses are valued at $1,265…  in addition to all the seminars above you can attend.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low?

Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart. First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though we give all course delegates our very best, we cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for us to help you find the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts, become friends and gain more wealth.

The fourth savings: Lifestyle for Two.

There is still more!

We have learned at our courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year?

We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

The International Club fee is $1,799 barely the price of  two seminars.Take for example if you plan to attend our Super Thinking + Spanish, $999 for a couple and a couple for International Investing and Business program, the normal cost would be $999 or $1,98.   International Club members attending just these two programs would already save… plus could attend all the other  Florida and North Carolina seminars plus receive $1,265 worth of emailed courses.

Exclusive “Think Tanks”

Twice a year club members meet for an exclusive members only Think Tank to look at ideas and answer multi currency and micro business questions that members may have.

 

I invite you to be a member of the International Club which allows you and your guest of your choice to attend all of these courses and tours.

Here is one final benefit. When you enroll… we automatically lock in this low fee for next year so your savings are automatically renewed in 2012 and 2013 at a discounted continued membership fee of $1,799.  Of course if you choose not to renew,  just simply cancel membership at no cost.

Let’s prosper in these times of change.  Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

International Micro Business in Migration


There is a growing profit potential in international micro businesses in migration.

economist article

 This chart from the Economist article linked  below shows how the world and the world of immigration has changed. More people are moving to Russia (as a percent) than the USA! See why more people are moving more and more (in and out) and see why a seminar micro business from this migration makes growing sense.

More people than ever before are moving… globally.  Technology… and changes in politics and economies are the driving forces.

An August 27 2011 Economist article “Migration after the crash  Moving out, on and back” says:  Migration after the global economic crisis is different, but still continuing.

LISA RAKOCZY arrived in north London in the mid-2000s from Krakow to study English, hoping to support herself by working as a cleaner. All went well—until the crash and ensuing economic crisis hit her previously prosperous clients. Competition for jobs became fiercer as middle-class families started to spend less on household help. For a while, she eked out enough to pay for her language course by cleaning lavatories in railway stations. Later, her sister, a teacher in Poland, helped her to make ends meet. But by the end of last year, Ms Rakoczy had tired of the trials of an immigrant’s life and headed home.

A typical case, you might think. Indeed, in the wake of the crash, many immigrants have gone back. Just as predictably, many would-be emigrants have stayed at home, either because moving abroad no longer seems worth the effort or because immigration rules in many countries have become more restrictive.

Yet at the airport, Ms Rakoczy may have crossed a young Briton bound for Shanghai, a Chinese computer programmer moving to Canada or a Portuguese worker on his way to oil-rich Norway. The recession has not stopped all migration, but rather led to new patterns and different destinations. Never before—or at least not in recent history—has the map of global migration been at the same time so varied and so changeable.

In past decades… businesses moved to where conditions were best.  Textiles moved from the USA to Japan… then Hong Kong, then Malaysia… then places even less expensive like Viet Nam.

Now people are moving where conditions are best… so in a poor economy Ecuadorians, Mexicans and other South Americans head north… while gringos with pensions and Social Security find living conditions better in South America.

Take for example the ability to enjoy luxury.

A hotel like the best boutique hotel in Ecuador Mansion del Angel wold cost a thousand dollars a night in big city USA.  Yet in Quito this experience is still affordable.

Michel Duer and Jorge Espinosa, proprietors of the Relais and Chateaux La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa, also have this wonderful Quito boutique hotel… the Mansion del Angel.

However when it comes to boutique hotels in Quito the Mansion raises the bar to the highest level of luxury and service.

BOUTIQUE HOTEL MANSION DEL ANGEL
Here is a note we recently received from the owners.

Recently, we were extremely proud to have received the mentioning of 4.5 points of a total of 5 from TRIPADVISOR, indicating that Mansion del Angel was named throughout the entire year as Number One of any establishment in Quito.  That, of course, is a big responsibility and we are working hard to
maintain this. I might add, Gary, that when you started to promote Mansion del Angel the first year it certainly gave a big push of which we were very happy.

Again, the rates have not been changed since the beginning and will remain for 2012 as well. We maintain them at US$ 150 for the Standard Room, either with a Queen bed or twin beds. Next the smaller suites with a King bed or Queen Twin beds at US$ 220 and finally the large Deluxe Suites at US$ 275 with either King or Full Queen bedding. All rates are per night AND INCLUDE FULL AMERICAN BREAKFAST, COMPLIMENTARY AFTERNOON TEA, A DAILY CITY TOURISM TAX AS WELL AS 22% TAXES AS PER GOVERNMENT REGULATION. 

Most hotels quote a rate and then add the 22% service and tax.

Ecuador Living Club members can see the discount they receive at the Mansion at the password protected club site. 

Learn how to be an International Living Club member here.

Affordabilty and mobility create business opportunity.  Seminars and tours can be provided in luxury at prices that delegates can afford. The opportunity comes from all the movement. Those who move to new places have many things to learn. Seminars, tours and events are a great way to teach them.

Profits can come in both directions… teach Americans about other countries. teach those in other countries how to move to the USA. This is just one example.

There are more opportunities than there are countries.  Dozens… even hundreds of opportunities for each two country routes!

Imagine the profit potential alone that is forming in the Middle East and Africa.  How to enter… or leave… Libya as an example, or Egypt.

For those who want to move and earn or those who want to earn on the move… think about a seminar or tour business…Mansion del Angel can provide the perfect venue in Quito.

International Micro Business – Invent a Future


Your international micro business can come about by inventing a future.

Gary-scott-seminars

JGAM Event in Copenhagen. Gary and Merri hard at work…or not?  See below the importance of perception.

There is a huge global economic mess or opportunity in the making. There is absolutely only one difference between the two… the mess or the opportunity… it’s how you choose to perceive it.

A reader sent the note below last week (bolds are mine):  Re your thoughts on the recent riots in Britain and the populist & economic instability in much of the rest of the world.

I have no argument with your statement that governments shouldn’t be in the business of providing jobs. But I have real questions on where jobs are going to come from: A global economy based on everybody buying more and more stuff isn’t workable (in addition to being unsustainable). I can’t speak to the rest of the world, but here 70% of the economy depends on consumers buying stuff and there’s no serious thought – or at least none being reported – on how to transition to a different kind of economy.

I was watching some of the interviews with rioters and the most telling one to me was a barely literate 17-year old who though uneducated and basically feral understood clearly that the government is paying him $125 a week to stay home watching television and not make trouble. What can Britain do with this cohort? They have no job skills even if there were jobs to put them into.

There’s always the CCC model – put unemployed people to work on infrastructure – which would solve 2 problems at once. But you can’t do this without government money.

Technology renders a huge number of workers superfluous. For instance, a few weeks ago, a closed factory in the upper Midwest that once employed more than 2000 people was bought by a Swedish company and totally rebuilt in line with European standards. The new factory needs 400 people, who with the help of robotics produce more than the previous factory produced with 5 times the employees. And while the new owners encouraged laid off workers to apply and even paid to retrain those workers whose test scores showed the capability to operate the new equipment, more than 80% of those jobs are not coming back. Once their unemployment insurance runs out, they will have NO purchasing power. Nobody here has any plans what to do with them or for them.

Re China, beyond the potential problems of Bare Branches is the looming crisis of a huge, rapidly aging demographic dependent on a much smaller population of younger workers. Kind of what the US and Italy are looking at right on the horizon.

It’s a mess, no matter where you go.

This reader is absolutely correct IF you see the natural state of evolution as a mess.  There is no doubt that social economic shifts are in high gear. They always have been and always will be … at least as long as this quantum flux we call reality continues to exist as a never ending swirl of change.

We can’t alter the facts or reality of evolution… but we can alter our perception from seeing a mess to seeing an enormess opportunity to be a pioneer in helping adapt to change.  The difference between the two mindsets is how we view trial and error. 

The entire history of mankind suggests that every darkest hour has always been in some way the dawn of a golden era.

Excerpts from last week’s (Aug. 6, 2011) Sunday New York Times book review entitled “Preoccupations – Daring to Stumble on the Road to Discovery” by  Peter Sims (author of “Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries”) shows how jobs will be created: New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman said that when he graduated from college, he was able to go find a job, but that our children were going to have to invent a job.

Jobs, careers, valued skills and industries are transforming at an unheard-of rate. And all of the change and uncertainty can make us risk-averse and prone to getting stuck.

Despite these realities, our education system emphasizes teaching and testing us about facts that are already known. There is much less focus on our ability to discover, create and reinvent.

The same often holds true in the workplace. Perfection is rewarded, while making mistakes is penalized. It’s no wonder that “failure” has taken on a deeply personal meaning, something to be avoided at nearly all cost.

The skills we’re taught work well for familiar situations, yet we’re trained to perfect our ideas and use the past to predict the future with linear plans in a nonlinear world. As such, we need a completely new mind-set. Linear thinking is a death knell for creativity. (bolds are mine, Gary).

When I worked as a venture capital investor, I found that most successful entrepreneurs don’t begin with perfected ideas or plans — they discover them. Entrepreneurs think of learning the way most people think of failure.

A prime example is Howard Schultz, one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time. When he started what would become Starbucks, he modeled the first stores after coffeehouses in Milan, a new concept for the United States in the 1980s. He was clearly onto something, but the baristas wore bow ties — which they found uncomfortable — and customers complained about the nonstop opera music and menus that were written primarily in Italian. And the early stores had no chairs. Mr. Schultz routinely acknowledges that he and his team made a lot of mistakes. But they learned from them, as they did from countless other experiments.

This is how comedians and entrepreneurs must work — by making countless small bets to discover what works. The real genius is in the approach.

The same holds true for leaders, managers and collaborators. They must to be willing to learn from mistakes.

In a time when valued skills and occupations shift constantly, we must be able to discover interests, opportunities and careers by experimenting. Or by reinventing ourselves altogether.

INVENTION and discovery emanate from the ability to try seemingly wild possibilities; to feel comfortable being wrong before being right; to live in the world as a careful observer, open to different experiences; to play with ideas without prematurely judging oneself or others; to persist through difficulties; and to have a willingness to be misunderstood, sometimes for long periods, despite the conventional wisdom.

All these abilities can be learned and developed, but doing so requires us to unlearn many of our tendencies toward linear planning and perfectionism.

As the technology pioneer Alan Kay put it: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”

It begins with a little bet. What will yours be?

I could not have put this better.  The difference between a mess and opportunity is our mindset.  We can see the reader above has these seven concerns:

#1: 70% of the economy depends on consumers

#2: No serious thought on how to transition to a different kind of economy.

#3: Barely literate 17-year olds who have no job skills

#4: Can’t put unemployed people to work on infrastructure without government money.

#5: Robotics produce more  80%  fewer employees.

#6: China Bare Branches.

#7: Huge, rapidly aging population dependent on support from much smaller population of younger workers.

We can feel worried or even vent anger at the change or we can see these evolutions as seven extra golden opportunities and start an international micro business and be involved in one of these opportunities.

This is why we have increased our focus on providing online courses hopefully to help you, our precious readers, create your own international micro business.

Don’t just vent.  Invent with Events instead.

Our newest online course “Event – Full Business” shows how to earn extra income from a seminar, tour,  exhibition or events business. With rising transportation costs and the increased needs of providing data to focused groups, fewer business models have as much potential as events

As technology dissolves the unity of families… communities… business organizations and even nations… a huge void grows in the realm of a great  human need… the need to belong.

The internet and broadband help like minded souls unite… but cannot fill the urge to be physically in one another’s presence.  Modern communications can exchange data, information and communicate but all of that is all a prelude to finally meeting one another in person.

There is a vital energy and spontaneity that comes from people to people meetings…. so the event business will grow.

Merri and I meet with friends from all over the world at events.  Our friends are like minded souls we know from around the world and continue meeting at events.

An events business can be fun and fulfilling as well.  If there is any one part of our business that has been fulfilling, it is the events where we can actually meet, see, hear and feel what our readers are doing, thinking  and sharing.

An events business is a great way to get out of the rat race as it can provide travel… and the ability to earn a great income as you spend time… live… laugh or love in more than just one place… and the places being ones YOU choose.

How can one live such a lifestyle… where a suitcase is a necessary and vital friends that bring you a great income and lifestyle?

There are few people more capable of answering this question than… Merri and me.

For 43 years (from May 1968) we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have had an events business conducting seminars, courses and tours.

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

Sometimes we have incredible adventures.

gary-merri-scott-llanganatis

Here I am with Merri and an Ecuadorian Yatchak deep in the Llanganatis jungle. This adventure led us to have shamanic events.
However when we want to stay at home we can also do so.  One does not have to travel to have an events business.

gary-scott-semainsr

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

We even built a…

little-horse-creek

seminar hall on Little Horse Creek so we can stay up here in the Blue Ridge when we desire… and still conduct events.

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

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

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

ecuador-exports

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

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

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

gary-scott-seminars

At this JGAM event in a tiny historic Danish village we enjoyed spending time with people from the US, Latin America, the USA, UK and throughout Europe including Russia. You could call putting on events work… but we call it a lifestyle.

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

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

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

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

There is a possibility that  Merri and I know more about conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world and because so many have asked… we have finally decided to provide an online correspondence course on how to create your own seminar, tour or events business.

We call this brand new emailed correspondence course:  “Event – Full Business”.

We have completed the first lessons and want to introduce this course to you as we are accepting enrollment of students in our beta program.

However there is a special $348 savings for the rest of the summer… because an events and publishing business go hand in hand.

Merri’s and my business has always provided well for us, but we have noticed over the decades that at times the bulk of our income comes from events and at other times from publishing.

To help readers learn both the publishing and events business which go hand in hand, our End of Summer Special offer gives you our online beta course “Event – Full Business” (normally $349) for just $1.  You save $348 when you order our online course “Self Fulfilled, How to be a Self Publisher” at the normal $499 price. You receive Eventful Business ($349) and Self Fulfilled ($499) a, $848 value for just $500.

Economic Downs & Ups


There are those who gain and those who lose from economic ups and downs.

Of this, we can be sure.

wealth-spread

The chart above comes from a February 2011 News.Yahoo.com article entitled “Separate but unequal: Charts show growing rich-poor gap” by Zachary Roth says: The Great Recession and the slump that followed have triggered a jobs crisis that’s been making headlines since before President Obama was in office, and that will likely be with us for years. But the American economy is also plagued by a less-noted, but just as serious, problem: Simply put, over the last 30 years, the gap between rich and poor has widened into a chasm. There are links to the other charts below.

See below how to help equalize the global wealth and to be sure to be among those who gain.

Here are three other financial realities.

Financial reality #1: Inflation is here.

Financial reality #2: Inflation will make the poor poorer.

Financial reality #3: Some businesses thrive during inflation.

This is why a seminar, tour or events business makes a lot of sense now.

Last week Traveldailynews.com reported that luxury travel rose. Here is an excerpt from the report:  Debbie Joslin, Exhibition Director, ILTM commented: “ILTM’s Global Trends report confirms there is a continued recovery in and demand for luxury travel, as shown by increasing lead times and rates.

A report commissioned by International Luxury Travel Market has revealed the changing pattern of luxury travel demands globally. The report takes into consideration the impact of the financial crisis and the rapid increase in demand for luxury from the emerging markets.
ILTM’s ‘The Future of Luxury Travel’ report – delivered by Horwarth HTL – was published at ILTM Asia in Shanghai – an invitation only event for the most elite of luxury travel buyers from across Asia Pacific to meet with the world’s most incredible luxury travel experiences.
The report highlights four distinct profiles of luxury travellers for 2011/2:
- the independent minded – seeking the authentic, active and personalised
- the explorer – seeking incredible experiences at limitless budgets
- candidates to luxury – seeking high quality, high service
- streetwise purchasers – younger, social media experts.

The emergence of demand changes show that internationally luxury travellers of today look to be entertained and stimulated rather than simply pampered.  The Independent-Minded Luxury Traveller seeks authenticity, simplicity and a commitment to the local environment, paying greater interest in closer contact with local culture as an integral part of their travel experiences. The Explorer too is ready to pay a high price for an outstanding experience off the beaten tracks.

Emerging destinations are increasingly popular, satisfying the demand for the new and exclusive as well as reflecting local experiences. For Candidates to Luxury, time is tantamount and there is a need for all elements of their travel plans to work seamlessly.  Equally important for all three of these groups is the development of the personal relationships between luxury buyers and their clients – ‘knowledge is power’.
Streetwise purchasers increasingly utilise social media in the decision making process of travellers, including the luxury travel element of the market, particularly for obtaining information and comparing rates. These travellers are seeking value for money as well as a return on their personal values.

Debbie Joslin, Exhibition Director, ILTM commented: “ILTM’s Global Trends report confirms there is a continued recovery in and demand for luxury travel, as shown by increasing lead times and rates. The role of the luxury travel buyer and their relationship with suppliers has never been more important as the demand for high-level personalisation continues to grow amongst luxury travellers.”

Our seminar business statistics expansion suggests this is true. In 2008 while many businesses suffered, our events business had its best year. 2009 and 2010 were even better and this year 2011 is on track to be our best year yet.

This growth is at a time when many small businesses are struggling.

An excerpt from a June 2011 nytimes.com article entitled “A Slowdown for Small Businesses” by Catherine Rampell says:  In the latest sign that the economic recovery may have lost whatever modest oomph it had, more small businesses say that they are planning to shrink their payrolls than say they want to expand them.

That is according to a new report released Tuesday by the National Federation of Independent Business, a trade group that regularly surveys its membership of small businesses across America.

The federation’s report for May showed the worst hiring prospects in eight months. The finding provides a glimpse into the pessimism of the nation’s small firms as they put together their budgets for the coming season, and depicts a more gloomy outlook than other recent (if equally lackluster) economic indicators because this one is forward-looking.

“Never in the 37-year history of our company have we seen anything at all like this,” said Frank W. Goodnight, president of Diversified Graphics, a publishing company in Salisbury, N.C. He says there is “no chance” he will hire more workers in the months ahead.  “We’re being squeezed on all sides,” he says.

Yet year in and year out our seminar, tour business has moved steadily ahead.  The stats from our autoresponder system shows the steady growth of the readers of our two main lists.

Slow, steady growth.

Now we would like to help you start a profitable seminar-tour-events business.

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

There is a possibility that  Merri and I know more about conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world and because so many have asked… we have created a plan to help others in this fascinating, lucrative business.  We want to provide an online correspondence course on how to create your own seminar, tour or events business.

We call this brand new emailed correspondence course:  “Event – Full Business”.

We have completed three lessons and to give you a better idea about “Event – Full Business”. The Introduction Lesson is below.  I am ready to send you the Intro and Lesson #1 of “Event – Full Business” and am ready to accept your enrollment of students in our beta program.

“Event- Full Business” – How to Profit Conducting Seminars, Workshops & Tours

Sometime about 24 years ago…. around 1987:

naigara-falls

Photo from www.thetoptensite.com/Niagara_Falls.html

A white water symphony… harmonized in crushed octaves.  A melody amplified by nature’s power and white water sound conducted in the fresh air amphitheater that is Niagara Falls.

Merri and I walked arm and arm along the Canadian side of the falls…overwhelmed by its strength and its spectacular beauty.  We had driven from our home in North Carolina to conduct an International Investing and Business Conference… one of the largest of our own seminars that we had ever conducted…380 people.

We arrived a day early… took a suite with a large red garden tub… soaked after the long journey and then enjoyed the wonder of this natural phenomenon…Niagara Falls.

This was the day to enjoy because the next three we would be busy, very busy… with stress-of course. Marketing had shot past our expectations and this was a large crowd. We would work hard yet we would also earn approximately $142,260 for three days work. Actually more. You’ll see why below.

We have earned in many ways since then… until now… 24 + years later.

This morning a reader enrolled in our 2011 International Club allowing him to attend all the seminars we’ll conduct for the next year.

He wrote: “Hi Merri. I am looking forward to meeting you both again. Had met in Niagara in the 1980s. Thanks.”

Obviously, something we did for this client 25 years ago brought this extra business to us now.

This fact stimulated me to get on with this course which I have been outlining for some time. A seminar, conference, tour business not only creates unusual profit opportunity now… but when a seminar business is properly run, it can create income for a lifetime!

This course shows how Merri I and have created riches and a lifestyle beyond our wildest imagination.  We want to share steps you can take to create a profitable and fun business conducting seminars, workshops conferences and tours wherever and whenever you like.  (Or perhaps you want to conduct seminars online or live or with a video sent through the internet.)

When it comes to conducting seminars, courses and tours, there are few people with more experience than Merri and me. Over 43 years we have organized, marketed and conducted thousands of tours for tens of thousands of people in dozens and dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).

This course shares how we have done this… what we did right… what we did wrong… how you can get started and what you can do much better than we have.

Here are the initial lessons in an outline that I am writing.

#1: How to earn millions from seminars, courses and tours. See how we have earned as much as $200,000 for three days’ work. (Once $135,000 in two days.)

#2: How to build a seminar business. See the one day Washington-Atlanta-San Francisco system that helped our courses evolve and how to use this approach to help your teaching grow.

#3: When and when not to use other speakers. Seminars for speakers… a way to get it all out as your bank accounts gets it all in.

#4: How to use other speakers. Gain the key to the room and the people within. Why the golden pen is mightier than a glib tongue, the sword and the overloaded brain.

#5: Dealing with hotels/locations. Why the marketing does not talk to catering who will not communicate with accounting and the mess this could mean for you. How to choose… arrange and survive the hotel. Forget the $11,314 coffee bill… for swill.

#6: Scheduling seminars. Magic dates and times for marketing… how far in advance to market and seminar death dates to avoid.

#7: Creating a back end business. How Merri made $12,936 dollars at a seminar in 37 minutes by just standing still.

#8: Three types of courses… delegate driven… speaker driven… third party driven.

#9: The importance of strategic partnerships for added wealth.

#10: How to market seminars, courses & tours.

#11: List building.

#12: Alternative seminar and course location options.

#13: The benefits of both big seminars and small courses.

#14: How to survive the dreaded problems: What to do when enrollments are low. Handling the heckler, the takeover and the cell phone. When the hotel fails. Surviving speaker no shows and all of those types of things!

#15: How to enhance your other businesses with seminars.

We welcome you to “Event – Full Business”.

We’ll be doing all we can to help you create your riches and a lifestyle beyond your wildest dreams with an events business so your life and income can be filled by events and event full!

The first lesson will look at seminars, workshops conferences, exhibitions, tours, various events, how they differ and their strengths and weaknesses so you can begin to zero in on what would be best for you.

This is the introduction.  We invite you to become a beta subscriber to this new online correspondence course, “Event – Full Business”.

From May 1968 we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have had an events business conducting seminars, courses and tours.

Part of our business is writing and this business allows us to work anywhere.

This writing is backed up by our events business which gives us an even greater ability to travel and earn anywhere.  Our seminar/conference/ events business has allowed us to visit and to live almost anywhere we have chosen… or not.

Sometimes we have incredible adventures.

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

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

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

We even built a…

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

Here is where…

we feed delegates on the deck looking over Little Horse Creek.

Delegates stay with us in the…

cabins and farmhouses we created for guests.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now we would like to help improve your lifestyle as well… if… earning extra income with an events business appeals to you.

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

There is a possibility that  Merri and I know more about conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world and because so many have asked… we have finally decided to provide an online correspondence course on how to create your own seminar, tour or events business.

We call this brand new emailed correspondence course:  “Event – Full Business”.

We have completed three lessons and to give you a better idea about “Event – Full Business”. The Introduction Lesson is below.  I am ready to send you the Intro and Lesson #1 of “Event – Full Business” and am ready to accept your enrollment of students in our beta program.

See how to benefit from this first stage in our course development after you have studied this introduction.

“Event- Full Business” – How to Profit Conducting Seminars, Workshops & Tours

Sometime about 24 years ago…. around 1987:

A white water symphony… harmonized in crushed octaves.  A melody amplified by nature’s power and white water sound conducted in the fresh air amphitheater that is Niagara Falls.

Merri and I walked arm and arm along the Canadian side of the falls…overwhelmed by its strength and its spectacular beauty.  We had driven from our home in North Carolina to conduct an International Investing and Business Conference… one of the largest of our own seminars that we had ever conducted…380 people.

We arrived a day early… took a suite with a large red garden tub… soaked after the long journey and then enjoyed the wonder of this natural phenomenon…Niagara Falls.

This was the day to enjoy because the next three we would be busy, very busy… with stress-of course. Marketing had shot past our expectations and this was a large crowd. We would work hard yet we would also earn approximately $142,260 for three days work. Actually more. You’ll see why below.

We have earned in many ways since then… until now… 24 + years later.

This morning a reader enrolled in our 2011 International Club allowing him to attend all the seminars we’ll conduct for the next year.

He wrote: “Hi Merri. I am looking forward to meeting you both again. Had met in Niagara in the 1980s. Thanks.”

Obviously, something we did for this client 25 years ago brought this extra business to us now.

This fact stimulated me to get on with this course which I have been outlining for some time. A seminar, conference, tour business not only creates unusual profit opportunity now… but when a seminar business is properly run, it can create income for a lifetime!

This course shows how Merri I and have created riches and a lifestyle beyond our wildest imagination and shares steps you can take to create a profitable and fun business conducting seminars, workshops conferences and tours wherever and whenever you like.  (Or perhaps you want to conduct seminars online or live or with a video sent through the internet.)

When it comes to conducting seminars, courses and tours, there are few people with more experience than Merri and me. Over 43 years we have organized, marketed and conducted thousands of tours for tens of thousands of people in dozens and dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).

This course shares how we have done this… what we did right… what we did wrong… how you can get started and what you can do much better than we have.

Here are the initial lessons in an outlined that I am writing.

#1: How to earn millions from seminars, courses and tours. See how we have earned as much as $200,000 for three days’ work. (Once $135,000 in two days.)

#2: How to build a seminar business. See the one day Washington-Atlanta-San Francisco system that helped our courses evolve and how to use this approach to help your teaching grow.

#3: When and when not to use other speakers. Seminars for speakers… a way to get it all out as your bank accounts gets it all in.

#4: How to use other speakers. Gain the key to the room and the people within. Why the golden pen is mightier than a glib tongue, the sword and the overloaded brain.

#5: Dealing with hotels/locations. Why the marketing does not talk to catering who will not communicate with accounting and the mess this could mean for you. How to choose… arrange and survive the hotel. Forget the $11,314 coffee bill… for swill.

#6: Scheduling seminars. Magic dates and times for marketing… how far in advance to market and seminar death dates to avoid.

#7: Creating a back end business. How Merri made $12,936 dollars at a seminar in 37 minutes by just standing still.

#8: Three types of courses… delegate driven… speaker driven… third party driven.

#9: The importance of strategic partnerships for added wealth.

#10: How to market seminars, courses & tours.

#11: List building.

#12: Alternative seminar and course location options.

#13: The benefits of both big seminars and small courses.

#14: How to survive the dreaded problems: What to do when enrollments are low. Handling the heckler, the takeover and the cell phone. When the hotel fails. Surviving speaker no shows and all of those types of things!

#15: How to enhance your other businesses with seminars.
