Mark Frakes USA

Spanish-course

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher, Mark Frakes (USA).

Mark has always been willing to try new things.  Working in a trauma center as an EMT, teaching public school, creating student groups on college campuses, publishing academic works, practicing real estate agency, and administering a university department are all things he has done.  Several careers and jobs later, he still has lots of stories to tell.  Helping people reach their potential is an important theme throughout Mark’s life.

Although Mark was born in the United States, he feels like he was born to wander the planet. Frankly, it was coincidence, serendipity, fate, karma, or however you want to frame it, when his parents purchased a set of Compton’s Encyclopedia.  The volumes shined with tan covers accented with red and gold trim. Wow, a sight to behold for a ten year old. There was no internet.  He smelled the newness of the pages as he cracked opened the bound volumes. For some unknown reason Mark went straight to the geography, his best and favorite course in school.  There it was – the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal. Then Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean caught his eye.  These were all places where he wanted to visit so they could reveal their secrets among the people he would meet.  Finally, Mark put his education to use by using those vocabulary words he was supposedly learning in Spanish class through travel in the U.S. and abroad.  He really could have used the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course then.

So when the opportunity arose to take the teacher training of the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course with Gary and Merri Scott, Mark jumped at the chance.  It’s a good fit for who he is. He likes to meet new people and help them deal with challenges.  He’s always chosen the challenge and the path to a life of learning. And yes, he’s fallen in a few pits along the way. Trial and error come with their own unique experiences.

Mark has lived and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada. He has traveled to various international destinations including Mexico, South Africa, Spain, The Bahamas, and Uruguay.  Mark returns to his educational roots to combine his business and education experience to provide new avenues of opportunity and growth to everyone he meets across the globe.  That is, everyone who wants to learn.  The “Super Thinking+Spanish” course is one of those opportunities.

Mark is ready to deliver the course anywhere in the world.  He’s developing a website called HispanicGlobe.com (with a little help from his friends) devoted to all things Hispanic, or as the ancient Romans would say “Hispanicus.” Currently, he’s in the U.S. ready to conduct the “Super Thinking+Spanish” course in St. Louis, MO and Sarasota, FL.  You can reach him at Mark@hispanicglobe.com.

Rick Brown

rick-brown-canada-Spanish-course

Rick Brown SuperThinking plus Spanish teacher, Toronto, Ontario.

What prompted Rick Brown to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was a trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating.

Rick was born in the province of Quebec and moved to the Greater Toronto Area in 1983. He traveled all over Canada during his twenty one year Military service. He has also visited Germany, Scotland, England, France Italy and Moneco, the USA and Ecuador.

Having spent the last thirty five years in the IT field, Rick is currently working for a Municipal Government in Ontario Canada where he is a Network Administrator and helps manage the Enterprise Data Centre and the Enterprise Backup for his group.

An interest in exporting his retirement south led Rick to us. He attended several courses and tours with us in Ecuador and came back for more the following year. He then joined our course to broaden his Spanish skills and wound up enrolling in Teacher Training course and now teaches Spanish.

Rick has worked in English, French and now Spanish. He looks forward to helping you to reach out and grasp Spanish as well.

What prompted Rick to first take the Super thinking + Spanish course was his first trip to Ecuador where he had some issues communicating. He was quite impressed with the Super Thinking aspects of the lessons and wanted to learn more especially  on the aspects of Whole Brain Learning.

Rick’s Toronto venue for the course is very interesting as it is on the south field of Oshawa Airport. This one of the original British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base from the Second World War.

The actual building is one of four remaining structures from the original base and in it’s day was a originaly a mess hall.  It has been completely redone as a meeting and entertainment facility by the membership of the 420 Wing and is one of very few buildings of it’s type remaining in Canada today.

Rick picked the facility because he is a veteran and the funds from our course rentals assist the Wing in running it’s programs which utilize veterans skills and, reach out to assist older veterans and Cadet organizations.

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick

super-thinking-spanish teachers

Super Thinking teachers, Shawn and Suzanne Bandick, (Mexico and B.C.)

In 2001  Suzanne and Shawn Bandick set out on a quest for adventure and a change of culture. They packed up their two kids, and moved from British Columbia, Canada to Mexico. Their  children, now young adults and in search of their own adventure and careers have moved back to Canada but Shawn and Suzanne keep their home base in Puerto Aventuras on the Caribbean coast of Mexico just south of Cancun.

In Canada, they built and trained sales and marketing teams for companies.  They traveled extensively for business and with their children for pleasure. Then came the question, “why do we work so hard just so we can go travel? Why don’t we just go and live abroad?”  Two years later they liquidated down to what would fit in their Toyota 4 runner and headed south.

Once in Mexico, Shawn opened a real estate office which was another fun adventure making tons of new friends and helping them live their dreams.  Suzanne became a writer and a life coach.

They first learned of Super Thinking + Spanish as students and here is their personal testimonial for Super Thinking + Spanish.

This Spanish course has opened up a whole new world of pleasure and ease in communicating for us. We spent ten years in Mexico struggling to learn Spanish feeling overwhelmed and inadequate in the memorization of the hundreds of verbs and the many conjugations of them that all our tutors told us we needed to do. This course changed everything for us. We are thrilled to now be in a space that speaking in Spanish flows for us! We became teachers because of a desire to empower others and hopefully help them avoid the struggle we went through. This method of teaching definitely empowers people! Imagine learning to speak a new language with ease and joy.

What do they love about Mexico?

They love the people, the diversity of the culture, the climate, the history hidden in many of the old cities and the warm sand and palm trees.

Their motto is “Live the Adventure” and invite you to their Super Thinking + Super Spanish class.

The current schedule of Super Thinking + Spanish courses is below.  We can work with you to create your own course at home… or a tour or we can even fit your delegates into an existing course.

Spiro Michas

After a successful 15+ year career in the recruiting & staffing industry;  co-founding and then founding two successful practices, Spiro found himself wanting a change. He grew enthusiastic about Super Thinking + Spanish while taking the course in an effort to learn Spanish after many years of study, re-study, frustration and false starts.  He found he was finally able to speak Spanish and was thoroughly impressed,  He decided to take the Super thinking + Spanish teacher training program to combine his passion for travel and Spanish culture. He is now traveling around Spanish speaking countries with the purpose of facilitating classes and helping fill the demand of English speakers needing to communicate in their new homes.

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.”

Purpose Driven Micro Business


Having a purpose driven micro business is one of three keys to success.

One of the purposes of our micro business is to help others enjoy the benefits of a more holistic approach to good health and everlasting wealth.

There is a demographic phenomenon outlined in the book the Cultural Creatives by Paul H. Ray PH.D.and Sherry Ruth Anderson PH.D.

Dr. Ray ran a company called American LIVES Inc. for 13 years. During that time he accumulated over 100,000 responses to questionnaires and hundreds of focus groups. (I am impressed.) The demographic information from those responses suggests that a new subculture has been emerging in America since the 60s. This group now represents 26% of the adult population (50 million people) and divides the nation into three demographic subgroups, the Moderns (49.8% of the population), the Traditionals (23.2%) and the Cultural Creatives (CC), 26%).

Some interesting points made in the book are:

The Moderns rule. They are the establishment.

The Traditionals are dying off.

The Cultural Creatives are creating a new culture in America.

Each of the three subcultures has a pretty fair disdain for the thinking of the others.

Traditionals find the following important:

  • Patriarchs should again dominate family life.
  • Feminism is a swear word.
  • Men need to keep their traditional roles and women theirs.
  • Family, church and community are where you belong.
  • The conservative version of their own particular religion must be upheld.
  • Customary and familiar ways of life should be maintained.
  • It is important to regulate sex-pornography, teen sex, extramarital sex and abortion.
  • Men should be proud to serve their country in the military.
  • All the guidance you need in life can be found in the Bible.
  • Country and small town life is more virtuous than big city or suburban life.
  • Our country needs to do more to support virtuous behavior.
  • Preserving civil liberties is less important than restricting moral behavior.
  • Freedom to carry arms is essential.
  • Foreigners are not welcome.

CCs on the other hand find the following important:

  • Nature and its destruction.
  • Problems with the whole planet such as global warming, destruction of the rain forests, overpopulation, lack of ecological sustainability and exploitation of the poor.
  • They would pay more taxes if the money would be used to clean the environment.
  • Developing and maintaining relationships.
  • Helping others and bringing out other’s unique gifts.
  • Volunteering for good causes.
  • Psychological and spiritual development.
  • See spirituality or religion as important but concerned about Religious right.
  • Equality of women.
  • Violence and abuse of women and children.
  • Politics should spend more on education, neighborhoods and sustainable future.
  • Concerns about the left and right of politics as well as the mushy middle.
  • Optimism for the future and distrust media’s negativity.
  • Creating new and better ways of life.
  • Concerned about big business’s focus on profit over environment, downsizing and human exploitation.
  • Having finances under control.
  • Dislikes overspending, conspicuous consumption and “making it”.
  • Likes exotic and foreign people, places and other ways of life.

Moderns find the following things important:

  • Making or having a lot of money.
  • Climbing the ladder of success with measurable goals.
  • Looking good or being stylish.
  • When the going gets tough the tough go shopping.
  • Having lots of choices.
  • Being on top of the latest innovations, trends and styles.
  • Supporting economic and technological progress at a national level.

Moderns also have the following assumptions:

  • It is flaky to be concerned about your inner or spiritual life.
  • You have the right to be entertained by the media.
  • Your body is pretty much like a machine.
  • Most organizations lend themselves to machine analogies.
  • Either big business or big government knows best.
  • Bigger is better.
  • Time is money.
  • What gets measured gets done.
  • Setting goals is very important.
  • Analyzing things into their parts is the best way to solve problems.
  • Science and engineering are the models for truth.
  • Efficiency and speed are top priorities.
  • The mainstream media’s awe for the rich is correct.
  • It makes sense to compartmentalize your life into separate spheres, work, family, making love, education, politics, religion.

Since our purpose is to help teach the benefits of holistic values that are more in tune with Cultural Creatives…. we know that we should not put too much emphasis focus on a mystic approach to learning.

One reader asked me if I could promise if the devil would not grab his soul while he was meditating.  So we stick to a more scientific approach and use relaxation instead of meditation so the tension created by the disdain between these sub cultures does not interfere with the learning power of this course.

In short our purpose guides us in the construction of our events.

This is why we believe that one key to the success of our micro business is have a purpose instead of a goal.

Goals are what we make with our logic.  Yet logic is never enough. There is way too much we do not know to have our goals turn out as we expect.  A purpose is far wiser… infinitely more flexible… capable of rolling with punches and shifting with change.

The economic and lifestyle goals of many will change with the economic turbulence ahead.   Those who are strongly cemented in a broad purpose have an advantage.  They might be knocked sideways by changing financial tides, but they’ll get up… dust off and move on with their purpose… because a purpose is not limited by size… duration or magnitude. We can move on with a purpose regardless of external events.  Action in down times is easier… more productive and can take advantage of the value created on the downside of every curve.   Those depending on goals and mathematical bottom lines can lay stricken by their shattered logical goals.

This is why we try to invest and do business with a purpose and always remember the quote I have framed on my desk… “Action is Thy Duty… Reward Not Thy Concern”.   We keep moving forward with our purpose without great concern with where the currents carry our correct actions.

So how can we define a purpose?

Winston Churchill is quoted as saying: It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.

One way to look further than we can see is through an understanding the ups and downs of cycles.  When we know where something is in its cycle, we can accurately predict what it is likely to do.

All of life… every event… the fauna and flora, even the universe flows in cycles.  When we understand and tune into cycles we begin to spot trends that will help us achieve greater happiness… better health… more success.

To entrain with cycles we often have to think outside the box. There is a reason for this. Every cycle has three foundations: birth, inertia and transformation.  Part of every society’s inertia is an educational system and collective mindset. These have their own momentum and they often stifle or resist new ideas… especially those ideas that may disturb the “norm.”   This means that part of society, resists its own evolution.

This site has reviewed many times how to play games to think outside the box.  A game is a structured activity, with a set of rules. This is important… because when we play… we create a set of rules that is beyond the norm… outside the box of logic…  so our information processing and decision making escape the tyranny of reason.

Micro Business Key to Success #2: See Success as a journey.

A recent quote from the Abraham-Hicks website highlights this key when it says:  Many think success means getting everything I want. And we say, that’s what dead is, and there is no such thing as that kind of dead. Success is not being done; not being complete. Success is still dreaming and feeling positive in the unfolding.

This key grows in important due to accelerated global change.

Micro Business Key to Success #3: Never give up.  Every destination whether enjoyed or not has some disappointments and frustrations.  See them for what they are… the spice that burns out the competition and makes the pleasant parts of the journey worthwhile.   See failure as important to success as black is to white. Adjust… adapt and keep going in positive ways.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

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

gary scott

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

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

All I need is my laptop.

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

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

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

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

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

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

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

Writers like High are great inspirations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

First some history.

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

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

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

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

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

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

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

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

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

The First P is Passion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a special offer. 

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

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

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

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