Business Spirit’s Practical Use in Daily Life


See my short video on the importance of a business spirit in daily life.

[wpvideo tl2TlCfl]

In this 8-minute video, Gary A. Scott discusses how to avoid confusing the spirit of hard work and enterprise with spirituality and how it may be applied practically to benefit your life. You may expand the video to full-screen by clicking the double-arrow to the bottom right of the video screen.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

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

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

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

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

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

ecuador-banks

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

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

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

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

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

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

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

goldenseal ginseng

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

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

loquats

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

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

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

loquat

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

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

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

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

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

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

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

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

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

Terror as Life Moves in Cycles


Many investment markets are moved by terror because life moves in cycles. Everything is built on a simple ternary principle of… creation…  stability and transformation. Some call it birth, life and death.  Let’s think about how this can create terror and what it can mean to our wealth… health and happiness.

First, a reminder…  there are only four days left to order Christmas Roses from Ecuador.

Consider  the following socio-economic cycle. The industrial complex we call the USA, Western Europe and Japan… brought along by the Marshall and North Korean War were in the creative stage from the 1940s through 1970s.

After World War II the United States and Canada were the only major industrial bases that had not been destroyed. They had expanded rapidly during the war and by 1947 had retooled to produce consumer goods, stimulated by a boom in consumer spending.

Exports had been a small factor in the American economy. The rebuilding of the Marshall Plan changed that as Europeans rebuilt with manufactured goods and raw materials from the United States.

Japan was pulled along as well, when in 1950 the Korean War turned Japan into the main staging area for the United Nations.  The Korean War brought Japan even more money than the Marshall Plan sent to any country in Europe.

In the 1970s this entire socio economic union began shifting into the maintenance phase.

The chart below from an Economist article “Chinese Takeovers, Being Eaten by the Dragon” shows the Foreign Direct Investment as a percent of the global economy.  For example in 1914 Britain was the largest empire ever controlling 1/4th of all nations in the world and 45% of the world’s FDI.

The Economist article explains when it says:  Control of the world’s stock of foreign direct investment (FDI), which includes takeovers and companies’ greenfield investments, tends to reflect a country’s economic muscle. Britain owned 45% of the world’s FDI in 1914; America’s share peaked at 50% in 1967. Today China, including Hong Kong and Macau, has a share of just 6%.

We should not be surprised that the USA is losing market share of FDI and losing it faster than previous empires.  This shift appears by almost any measure as part of our universal pattern and in perfect harmony.

So we should not be upset as these areas now move onto transformation.

Yet markets fear change and the simultaneous shift of the US, Western Europe and Japan economies to this new (and what can be a very positive) phase create terror in investment markets.

Terror creates errors.  Errors create distortions. Distortions create opportunity.

The video below shares some thoughts about how to embrace change and gain opportunity from these cycles.

“Tangled Web” – A Micro Business Course

“Go Try Things”

Learn how to turn your passions into profit… wherever you live… wherever you travel with “Quantum Innovation” a Micro Business Course created from three of our online courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web – How to Have an Internet Business” and “Quantum Thinking”.

Here’s a phrase that can reduce stress and make your life better with everlasting wealth … “Go Try Things”!

This phrase can help you grow richer, feel better and be healthier… beginning right now.

gary-scott-images

Here I am working at home trying to explain the importance of this phrase “Go try things”… which sums up why you not only can but should gain the benefits of an international business.

Perhaps the importance of “Go Try Things” that began in Hong Kong about 44 years ago should be shared .

A warm South China Sea fog swept up the mid levels like a spider’s  web in fast air. …then hung like a moist blanket over the thin ribbon of asphalt that snaked the ridgeline through the jungle ahead. Low city rumbles blunted the green tropical freshness and fought nature’s cacophony of dawn.

Bowen Road runs flat as a pancake through the mid-levels of Hong Kong.  I lived there for several years decades ago and took early morning runs most days.  Arriving shortly after my 21st birthday, my task was to build a sales team that sold American mutual funds to the Hong Kong Chinese. That turned out to be a bad idea. The Hong Kong market was booming and the US stock market dead.   The company that sent me there went bust and left me stranded… broke…. divorced… unable to ay my rent.   Yet I had an idea and trying it led me into the business of writing about how Americans could invest in Hong Kong.  Many of my readers made fortunes and for me, a career was born.

A decade later after a move to London… distortions were spotted in the cost of Manx corporations.  This led me shortly to the Isle of Man… overlooking Douglas Bay… a brisk ocean air off the harbor carried mournful seagull songs into our room at the Palace Hotel.  I was looking for cheap corporations but found a real estate treasure instead.  Years of real estate tours helped readers start businesses there and they picked up unimaginable profits… because we tried some new things.

However Britain’s gray winters soon drove me to the sun. I found myself watching sun rays sparkle on the emerald prisms of cool, spring fed pools. They reflected and danced, rainbows that glimmered on towering mahogany, banana, stately palm. Green vistas shimmered, easy paced in the afternoon sun and sweet, tropical perfumes floated in the breeze.

Merri, and I were sitting on a huge veranda, overlooking a vast expanse of lush, green, countryside watching our kids joyfully ride their horses up the mountains in the Dominican Republic. A tropical breeze flowed over the porch cooling the sunny afternoon.  My portable laptop computer sat before me. Working, I had dozed off, lulled by katydid songs, the soft breeze and my lost thoughts.   That was work and the sudden realization of how wonderful that work was shocked me into understanding that having an international business is the best way to security, wealth, freedom and fulfillment in life. That realization was the foundation of our seminars on how to have a micro business and that trip came because we were searching for new places and trying new things.

We conducted Dominican real estate tours but also created out course International Business Made EZ.

Since then thousands have attended or taken the correspondence version of this course all over the world.

Then in the process of trying new places and new things, 15 years ago we stumbled onto Ecuador.

We continue to “go try things”.

Our business has evolved over 44 years from Hong Kong to London to Europe to the Isle of Man to the Dominican Republic to Florida to North Carolina to Ecuador.  Each time because we were trying things of interest and fascination to us.  Not once did business turn out as we expected… but always there was some success… happy customers…. good deeds…. great service… profit… fulfillment and adventure all originating from just trying some things.

Delegates to our seminars have improved their lives, gained greater independence, increased financial safety and dramatically gained more freedom to lead the type of life they desire…all because these delegates after our courses “go try things”.

So I sat straight up and started writing after working by my pool and reading a USA Today article entitled “THEY WON’T QUIT” by Janice Lloyd which summed up the vast importance of trying and the benefits you can gain when you “go try things”.

The article is as follows  (Bolds and underlines are mine):  Experts say Baby Boomers are starting to work past conventional retirement age, a trend fueled by an uncertain economy, improved health in older life and an understanding that staying engaged leads to a better sense of well-being.

Hitting 65 and “getting the gold watch” is not on the must-do list anymore for many people, says Jacquelyn James, research director at the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College.

“Their emphasis isn’t just to keep working but to do things that add life to years and not years to life,” James says. “People who are very work-oriented and love their jobs don’t want to give them up, especially if they’re healthy.”

An April Gallup survey had similar findings: 534 working people were asked whether, when they reached retirement age, “you think you will continue working and work full-time; continue working and work part-time; or stop working altogether?” Those who answered that they would continue to work were then asked, “Would you do it because you want to, or because you will have to?”

•18% said they would work full-time, and a third of those said it was because they wanted to, not because they would have to.

•63% said they would work part-time; almost two-thirds of those said they would do it because they wanted to.

•18% said they would retire and stop working altogether.

The average age of retirement is 64 for men and 62 for women, according to an analysis of Census data by the Center for Retirement Research. Census data also show the number of Americans living to age 90 and beyond has tripled in the past three decades to almost 2 million and is likely to quadruple by 2050.

“People are beginning to realize that if you retire at age 60, you could easily spend 35 years in retirement,” says Richard Johnson, senior fellow and director of the program on retirement policy at the Urban Institute. “And that could get tedious.”

There are other reasons to stick it out.  Job satisfaction grows with age, Johnson says: 90% of workers age 60 to 64 agree or strongly agree that they enjoy going to work, compared with 95% of workers 65 to 69 and 97% of workers age 70 and older, according to the Retirement Project of the Urban Institute.

Stress levels also drop on the job. About one of three workers age 70 and older agree or strongly agree their jobs involve a lot of stress, compared with more than half of workers age 60 to 64.

“There isn’t a script for 65 anymore. We recommend the same thing we tell people in their 20s: ‘Go try things.'”

This is why we would like to help you make your life better with a funky micro business and why we are offering a two courses for the price of one special.

The USA Today article goes on to point out: “People are being given rotten advice to slow down, take it easy, stop worrying and retire,” Friedman says. “The Longevity Project discovered that those who worked the hardest lived the longest — the responsible and successful achievers thrived in every way, especially if they were dedicated to things and people beyond themselves.

Learn how to create and enjoy your own global micro business with our online courses.

You can learn how to gain “earning flexibility” so you can earn… mobile or not… full or part time… young or old.    We have many boomers take our courses… some older.

Other participants are in their 20s and 30s and want to get started while avoiding the rat race.  Others in their 40s and 50s are looking for ways out of the rat race.

Technology and economically speaking, you have a a perfect time now to have your own micro business. Communications and computers do most of the work that previously required labor and staff.   Outsourcing and virtual offices, plus internet marketing mean a one man (or woman or couple) show can accomplish incredible things.

This is why we have combined our two courses “International Business Made EZ” and “Tangled Web How to Have an Internet Business” and our Quantum Thinking Workshop  (for the price of one) plus added knowledge about how to be smarter and more intuitive in business.  We call this union of three courses our “Quantum Innovation Program”.

These courses focus on how to use modern technology to start a and run or improve a global micro businesses… that can create valuable extra income with minimal investments of time and capital.

You learn how to start small and build with stepping stones and a harmonious focus… how to build a successful at home business via the internet using several profit generating phrases at Google.   You gain the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income… whether you travel or stay at home.

The course shares how to 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.

Then you gain all the facts on how to use the seven Ps to create internet sales.  The internet can support a business or can be a business.

This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous delegate just shared:

“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!

“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“Below are some of my search results. I only listed GOOGLE and YAHOO but you can find similar results on both MSN and ASK.com.

GOOGLE:

#1 out of 1,190,000 …………………………“definition healthy spirit “

#1 and #2 out of 1,210,000.………………….“benefits to living a holistic life “

#1 and #2 out of 1,260,000 …………………“benefits to living a holistic life “

#2 out of 935,000 …………………………..“holistic lifestyle tips “

You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business globally!

This is a perfect era to increase your wealth and improve your lifestyle as you reduce stress with as you  earn with your own a micro internet business.

Merri and I enjoy having an international internet business.  This has brought us everlasting wealth since 1998.

We are very thankful to be one of the most read sites in Ecuador and we do very well in the US and Canada, too.  Also we have clients in dozens of countries.

Yet we are trying new things still Last year we began adding teachers to our Super thinking + Spanish program so you’ll learn  how to expand your micro business through others.   Recently Panama has also become a hot spot for our business and we are now working on an expansion via the internet into Panama, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Mexico, Canada, Cuba, Hong Kong, China and Singapore.

May we share our experiences to help you learn how to enjoy this satisfaction and success through your own micro business?

We help readers learn how to create a value oriented micro businesses. This is important because this type of activity does well in good times and bad.

Our sales doubled during the last recession.  Our list of readers increased over 100%.

This is how good, value oriented business grow by the way.   They 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!   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.

Knowing the micro business philosophies we follow can help you invest better and can help you create an internet success 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.

The recent, global economic transformation means that the way we work, live and earn will next be the same.  This will destroy the financial security of many, yet bring great opportunity to a few… who adapt and learn how to earn in the new era.

We are enjoying a quantum shift and the way we work, live, invest and do business will never be as before.

Governments globally are trying to slow this needed economic transition and their stimulation efforts will most likely cause the loss of purchasing power in most currencies… global inflation.

The greatest asset we can have in the new era is an ability to serve… to produce a product or service that adapts to the changing ways.

A recent special report in Time magazine entitled “The Way We’ll Work” explained this financial dilemma in this way:

Ten years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web.  So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. No one is going to pay you just to show up. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative and far less secure work world. It will be run by a generation with new values — and women will increasingly be at the controls.

These words could not be more true.  They mean disaster for many who plan t live in the old ways. These words spell great opportunity for those who adapt and enjoy the new ways to earn and live.

Take Merri’s and my business as an example. We are both past retirement age yet continue see our business and income grow and evolve… in truly fun and satisfying ways.   We have a business that works in Cotacachi, a small Andean village, in Florida, our home and in the Blue Ridge of North Carolina or summer place. Our business can help us earn anywhere we choose in the world.

Our website began in the 1990s ago as an adjunct to our print business. Today we don’t sell a single scrap of paper.

This is all possible because we have a web based business and we would like to share how you can have freedom, fulfillment and extra income with your own internet business too.

You receive a huge package of benefits in the “Tangled Web” Program.

First  learn how to have your own web business from our eMailed Web Business Course… The Tangled Webs We Weave.

This problem of being able to earn and enjoy the process in the new era is so acute and the importance of having more people do what they love so vital that we created this course…on how to develop your own international internet business.

Years ago, Merri and I  had 23,000 print readers… micro sized in publishing terms… but very, very profitable for us.  We made millions from this business.

Yet Merri and I saw this rapidly changing economy coming… and had learned that small is beautiful.

We decided to innovate, become even smaller… but wealthier and happier!

Money had stopped mattering as much, our children were grown, finished with university, we sold our print business and took a year off… lived with a shaman high in the Andes.

Then we morphed into an internet only business.  Our readership began small, with  about 1,600 email readers in 1998.  We expected to slow down and smell the roses more.

We even bought an isolated hacienda high in the Andes called Rosaspamba (Place of roses).

Here we are playing around building a hut at the Hacienda.

ecuador-patience

As crazy as it seems, we could actually run a business with this small readership and make a profit because our readers are so wonderfully responsive.

Why?  How?

This is what the new course I am creating will teach you….how to have a small, safe, profitable global internet business by creating wonderfully response, fun to be with, like-minded customers.

How small?

Today, our business remains micro sized but we have grown from 1,600 readers to four main subscription lists consisting of more than 25,000 subscribers.

How safe?

The global economic downturn did not slow us a bit.   In fact we grew faster, in number of subscribers and income.

This was all at  a time when many say the world was economically depressed.

How profitable?

Our list and sales are still tiny compared to many of our competitors and associates who make millions a month.   We make tens of thousands of dollars…sometimes hundreds each month… way more than our cost of living and we earn it in fun ways… traveling, writing… meeting interesting people and sharing interesting thoughts.

Here I am at a seminar speaking in Florida, with a panel of economic excerpts from around the world, to 115 people mostly who came from our internet business.

multi-currency-debt

Here are the delegates.

multi-currency-debt

We enjoyed walking the Florida beach, talking to these wonderful people and basking in the sun.. yet were paid in two days more than most people make in a month.

Yet we have been able to add this extra income with a surprisingly small amount of added overheads.  This works perfectly for Merri and me…a fun sized readership. In our opinion, this should be the key in business… satisfaction… fulfillment and fun…through service along with the profit.

Yet, profits do matter and These internet sales alone have given us the freedom to live in an isolated Blue Ridge farm during summers and in Florida and Ecuador the rest of the year…yet still earn many tens of thousands of extra dollars a month.

multi-currency-debt

Merri and I walk to our Blue Ridge office to speak with a group about how to have an internet business.

Now you can learn everything I do to create this extra income and have fun and fulfillment in a micro business.

ecuador-internet-business

In the summer I can even worked in the woods with our hound dog Ma.

Our growing income is one reason I want to share this course with you.

Shifts in the global economy mean that more of our readers need a new way to earn in the years ahead so my webmaster who helped me start this site and has become fully involved in our business agreed to co-write the course with me.

In the course Merri and I explain what we do in the business.  The writing…the marketing…the product planning and such.

Our webmaster outlines the technical part. How to chose a server…set up a shopping cart…create pay per click systems…send thousands of emails a day.

“The Tangled Webs We Weave” looks at all the technical aspects of developing a web based business including:

* How to set up the website.

* How to use shopping carts.

* How to create pages.

* How to develop reader lists.

* How to create electronic products and income.

* How to get good search engine rankings. (See an excerpt below from one lesson on how to get good search engine rankings).

* How to gain tax advantages from an International web based business.

* How to stay small and yet create big profits.

Though we like to remain small, this does not mean all of our students will.  Our webmaster started with us first but since has grown to be the chief internet consultant for several much larger internet marketing companies that send over a billion emails a year!

“Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Internet Business” is $299.

This is a bargain. Merri and I have been traveling and doing international business for 43 years. We have had a web based business for over ten years. You can share everything we have learned.

Plus we provide our standard full guarantee. Enroll in the entire program.  Try the courses for 30 days. If not satisfied we’ll give you an immediate, full… no fuss refund.

Learn how to have a steady web based business.  Our site uses no tricks.   Our site is  not fancy. Our site does not have amazing graphics. Our site does not use any special SEO techniques.   We just keep hammering away, every day, with steady, content closely focused to our readers needs.   This has worked well  and seems to be working even better as we continue to grow, our email list size increases, our site visits rise, our sales and our profits jump even during this gloomy economy.

As the web matures… internet businesses are still incredibly new… authenticity and usefulness of content will grow.  This makes it a great time for individuals to have small internet businesses (like ours)  that are fun, fulfilling, sustainable and very profitable.

The Tangled Web course is co authored by our webmaster David Cross.

Adapting and Profiting From Change


[wpvideo VPyP5izL]

In this 13-minute video, please view a discussion on how change brings opportunities and how to profit from change. You may expand the video to full-screen by clicking the double-arrow to the bottom right of the video screen.

Government attempts to mask economic change create inflation.  Five ways to combat inflation are:

#1: Move where costs are lower… such as a country like Ecuador or to Small Town USA.

#2: Invest in real estate.

#3: Invest in commodities.

#4: Have your own small business.

#5: Invest in equities.

Our mission at this site is to help our readers adapt to change in these five ways.

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety in 2020

The most important investment you can make in 2020, is in yourself. 

Invest in more time.  Invest in less stress. Invest in greater security.That’s why four years ago we created the Purposeful Investing Course (PI) because when it comes to finances, there are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

The core model portfolio we teach in the PI Course rarely changes, but is highly diversified in thousands of shares around the world… so there is higher long term profits, less stress and greater safety.

The portfolio consists of 19 country ETFs.  During the four years since we created the Purposeful Investing Course and set up a $40,000 real time portfolio at Motif Brokers, we have held the same 19 shares and have only traded three times.

The portfolio started with $40,000 and has risen to $53,591 ($49,015 in shares and the balance in accumulated cash).

The portfolio did really well from 2015 to 2018, better than the DJI Index.  Then as the US dollar grew in strength it fell behind.

The chart below shows the actual results of thos portfolio compared with the S&P 500.

This good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around investing models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Spain, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of theseall good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in all the shares of the MSCI Index in each good value market reduces long term risk.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

What you get when you subscribe to Pi.

You immediately receive a 120 page basic training course that teaches the Pi Strategy.   You learn all the Pi strategies, what they are, how to use them and what each can do for you, your lifestyle and investing.

You also begin receiving regular emailed Pifiolio updates and online access to all the Pifolio updates of the last four years.  Each update examines the current activity in a Pifolio, how it is changing, why and how the changes might help your investing or not.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

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

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US 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 have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

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

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Silver Dip” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  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, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and “Silver Dip” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Silver Dip” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.
