Ecuador Organic & Green


Ecuador, organic & green ideas can create wealth in the new economic era.

I’l say more on Ecuador organic gardens in a moment.  First, let’s look at organic and green ideas north of Ecuador in the USA and elsewhere.

multi-currency-debt

A recent message mentioned that we have enhanced our strategic alliance with Jyske Bank by co hosting a international investing course with Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM) at the Naples Beach Club.  The shot above was taken of the Naples Beach Club golf course.

Each day Merri and I strolled down the beach from the hotel to the Naples pier.

investing-green

During the day we talked with delegates attending the seminar.  My speeches looked at some great opportunities for investing in green ideas.

Herein lies the rub.

Golf courses… beaches surrounded by commerce… the opulence of Naples is about as far from green as can be… yet this is what attracts so many of the bucks!

This series shows how the big economic problems today create big, new opportunities.

The greatest asset we can have in the economic era ahead is an ability to serve… to produce a product or service that adapts to new ways of living as they unfold.

One of these new ways will be green.

Merri and I left Naples (our home for more than 20 years) because it had transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a glittering metropolis. This was not us.  The lifestyle there is complex now and hard to sustain.

Though our global travel for 41 years leaves us with a terrible carbon footprint and makes us look like jet setters, Merri and I are basically simple, recluse home bodies,  happier weeding our garden and watching our sunflowers sprout, than flying off to a grand metropolis.

I usually work here on the front porch…

sunflowers that…

by late summer will look like this.

Merri and I are such common people… so like, so many our age… that usually whatever we like, many millions of others like as well.  We count on this fact in our investing. We feel for what we like, knowing there is a market for that feeling.    This has paid us, over the years, well.

During the current economic transformation green may suffer… but in the end  humanity cannot ignore the problem of sustainability.  This means that green investments may offer special value now.

Here are excerpts from a recent Times special report entitled “It will Pay to Save the Planet”:

It’s no secret that U.S. workers are in trouble, with the unemployment rate at 8.9% and rising. At the same time, the world faces a long-term climate crisis. But what if there is a way to solve both problems with one policy? A number of environmentalists and economists believe that by implementing a comprehensive energy program, we can not only avert the worst consequences of climate change but also create millions of new jobs — green jobs — in the U.S. “We can allow climate change to wreak unnatural havoc, or we can create jobs preventing its worst effects,” President Barack Obama said recently. “We know the right choice.”  According to a report by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, there are already more than 750,000 green jobs in the U.S.

Environmental advocates say that with the right policies, those job figures could swell. The Mayors’ report predicts that for the next three decades, green employment could provide up to 10% of all job growth.

Because the environment creates a huge problem… there is also great opportunity in the thoughts behind this series.

Now imagine this… a guy sitting deep in the North Carolina woods reporting about Ecuador to tens of  thousands of people in a flash. We gave up our print publishing business and moved to places where we mostly walk rather than drive… built a super insulated natural house all to make our lifestyle and business greener.

You can do this too… if you wish or something of this sort… something that interests you.  There are so many green ideas and opportunities.

Many of these organic… green ideas are in Ecuador.

Here are a few ways suggested in previous messages that you can earn income that are greener than the norm.

Here is a recent  order of green Ecuador roses we received at our home.

This idea helps create employment in Ecuador…  encourages green agriculture… reduces pollution for floral distribution and encourages community interaction.

Few ideas will totally reduce our carbon footprint.  Yet we can consume less when we work from home and deliver electronic rather than physical products.  When we void commuting we reduce travel, road wear and use less gas.  We pollute less.

I talked about green investing with these speakers at the Naples seminar.  Left to right: Samuel Rachlin,  Rich Checkan, Steve Blumenthal, Joe Cox, John Mauldin, Gary Scott, Lars Stouge. Thomas Fischer Moderating.

Our multi currency course has been tracking green portfolios for years. The green portfolio we have tracked for years include:

Vestas:  Danish Wind Turbine manufacturers.

Q Cells AG: German Solar Panel Makers.

Kurita Water: Japanese Water Purification Company.

Hyflux: Singapore Water Purification Firm.

NonoZymes: Danish Enzymes Manufacturer.

Seche Enviroment: French Environmental Porducts Firm.

I reviewed this green portfolio with my Jyske Global Asset Management adviser,  Anders Nielsen.  Here I am with  Anders at the Naples seminar.

multi-currency-debt

He recently wrote that Jyske recommends some of the green shares in our green portfolios now and said:

Jyske Bank has a buy on NovoZymes, with a target price of 515 Danish kroner (the current quote is 417.00 DKK).

Jyske Bank has a buy on Vestas, with a target price of 495 Dansih kroner (current quote is 399 DKK).

Jyske Bank does not have recommendations on the rest of the companies, but Anders passed on recommendations from other analysts from the Bloomberg system.

Seche Environnement:  16 analyst follow the company. 6 buy, 5 hold and 5 sell. The average price target is 45.94 Euro (the current quote 49.58).

Kurita water Industry:  12 analyst follow the company, 8 Buy, 2 hold and 2 sell. The average target price is 2,275  yen (the current quote 2,570).

Q-cells AG:  41 analyst follow the company, 7 buy, 13 hold and 21 sell. Average target price 17.56 Euro (The current quote 17.26).

Hyflux Ltd:  8 analyst follow the company, 5 buy, 3 hold and 0 sell, Average target price 2.21 (Current quote 1,77).

You can see a more complete report n this as a multi currency subscriber.

One, two or none of these ideas may be right for you.  Others may not. We cannot be sure which shares will rise.   We can be sure that rapid change is here and that green and sustainable products are vital to humanity’s future!

Great opportunity is also here and a big part of this opportunity will be in the field of environmental and social sustainability.  I look forward to sharing this opportunity with you so we can make other green with envy!

Cotacachi Spanish Schedule


Our Cotacachi Spanish course just finished. See yesterday’s message Cotacachi Health Opportunities about this course.

During the course Cotacachi was the center of a massive demonstration that may lead to some significant political impact.

Here is a comment about this from Journalists without borders.

Community journalist arrested during indigenous people’s protests against mining law.

Reporters Without Borders today demanded an explanation from the authorities about the reasons and circumstances of the arrest yesterday of community journalist Francisco Farinango in Ñaño Loma, in the Pichincha region of northern Ecuador.

The reporter on Radio Intipacho was arrested with three other members of his Tupigachi community on the sidelines of nationwide demonstrations by indigenous communities against a new mining law, which locally degenerated into clashes with security forces. The capital Quito is in the Pichincha region.

Police sources cited by the national press said that the journalist had been accused of having “incited” his companions to demonstrate and would shortly appear before a court. A total of nine people were held and six others injured during the demonstration.

“An arrest against the background of a demonstration, possibly a riot, makes it difficult to check the allegation that Farinango had ‘incited’ members of his community to rise up,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.

“Why him in particular?” it asked. A community journalist is by his nature witness and actor in an event that affects his community, a witness who could be awkward in a crisis. We fear that the arrest of Francisco Farinango only serves to punish his media and we ask the authorities to clarify their reasons,” it said.

Indigenous communities mounted protests in nine of the countries 24 provinces on 20 January against the environmental consequences on their lands of a new law allowing open cast mining. The day was marked by some localised blocking of roads and clashes with police.

Interior minister, Fernando Bustamante, said there had been an “attempt to destabilise the country and its government”, a statement which provoked an outcry from representatives of the National Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities (CONAIE), who said they held the minister responsible for the physical wellbeing of the detainees, along with his counterpart at internal and external security, Gustavo Larrea, and the President, Rafael Correa Delgado.

We look more deeply into this demonstration and the political impact  in our upcoming Ecuador Living update. 

You can get that update as a subscriber to Ecuador Living.

Of course our Cotacachi Spanish course delagtes did not see any of this in Cotacachi. They saw a parade instead.

Having bragged about the success of the Cotacachi Spanish Course,  I must announce that  we have canceled our May Cotacachi Spanish course.   In a way this is good news…created by bad news….that creates more good news.

Here is the bad news that creates the good news.  The global investment world gave their opinion of President Obama’s inaugural speech with this.

New York Times excerpt:  Dow Falls More Than 330 Points; S.&P. Drops More Than 5 Percent After hearing the new president’s inaugural address, investors went back to selling stocks, sending the major indexes down sharply. Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange paused at times to watch the inauguration ceremony and President Barack Obama’s remarks, but the
transition of power did not erase investors’ intensifying concerns about the struggling economy. At the close, the Dow Jones industrial average was down more than 330 points, or about 4 percent, while the broader Standard & Poor’s
500-stock index fell 5.2 percent.

I really like Obama but do not feel that increased US government spending is the way to resolve the world’s economic imbalances.

This news  creates some unprecedented opportunity and I have been working closely with Jyske Bank and Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM) to help our readers understand why and how the current economic  corrections create phenomenal investing value.

Therefore we have agreed to replace our May Spanish course with a Global Asset Value to join up with JGAM and speak at their JGAM Global Asset Value Strategy Seminar  in Naples Florida, May 29 to 31.

Investing values are so special now and investors have been hit s hard that we feel it important enough to take the unprecedented step of canceling a course in Ecuador (we have not done this in the past 20 years).

One way to take advantage of this opportunity is by investing British pounds now.

Here is an excerpt from today’s Multi Currency course.

Jyske Global Asset Management just set me this note.

At the Investment Committee meeting on the 15th of January we decided to take a long position in GBP & JPY against USD.

The stop loss level in GBP was reached before the position was taken. We thus had an Ad Hoc meeting today to consider our options.

We decided to take the long position in GBP at these new levels as we feel it has fallen to much to quickly and should be poised for a rebound.

We sell USD against GBP at 1.3986 with a stop loss at 1.35 which is below the low of  1.3730 set in August 2001.   We executed the USD/JPY as agreed at the meeting on the 15th of January. We sold USD at 90.166 with a stop loss at 103.00

See the entire lesson and ways to invest in pounds now by subscribing to our Multi Currency Portfolios course.

Another way to beat the economic downturn is with your web based business.  Here is an excerpt from our newest course Tangled Webs – A Web Business Course – Lesson Three.

The creek sighs into an inky night’s prefect harmony of…katydid, cricket and the  hoot owls that punctuate nature’s noisy silence and lulls us in our sleep.

Merri and I slept in our Colman tent next to this water fall, dreaming content in our evolution…from the US, to Hong Kong and Europe, years in London to Florida and  a 5,000 square foot house on the beach…rising to this…a tent deep in a Blue Ridge woods.

tangled-web

This is how we started our farm…from a tent….open fire cooking and boiling water from the creek. When I say remote…I mean remote. Here is one of our farm views.

tangled-web We are isolated.  Here is the office/seminar center we built in the deep woods.

Our hacienda in the Andes is even more remote. Here I am with  Merri  building a hut on the hacienda.

Friends who knew us first when we lived in Florida and drove a Rolls Royce were often shocked when they came to visit and discover that we were instead driving a beat up Ford pickup and living in a tent!

We had a Bentley as well!  Here is our daughter Cheri enjoying our classic Bentley T.

tangled-web

What an evolution.   Let me tell you about this Ford truck.

Brown Betty we called her. 1987-brown-rusting, scratched-143,000 miles-long bed-four wheel drive-eight speed stick on the floor-big engine-huge six ply snow tires. I bought her for $2,400 bucks.

This truck was tough! When Merri, me and Ma (our pumpkin patch hound) have a heavy job from carrying railroad ties (we were building a bridge on the land) to taking rusted barbed wire we pulled out of the creek to the dump, the truck got the job done. We did not worry about the innumerable dents scratches and nicks we put on that truck for a minute.

This was the perfect vehicle for the farm at that time.  Rain, mud, frozen roads or snow, that truck kept going. With chains she was a Sherman tank that could carry hay.

We have since upgraded to a more fuel efficient…but still dented and scratched  mid size pickup. Here is our grandson Garren learning how to climb on back the hard way Christmas 2008.

Isually I drive my little Suzuki 4-banger…now 23 years old!

tangled-web

What does beat up trucks and Rolls Royces have to do with having a web business?

First we may have been the poorest looking multi millionaires around….but please do not make a mistake… we are multi millionaires…even after the 2008 crash and our business is booming..all because of the internet and our web based business.

Tangled Webs – A Web Business Course – Introduction


Tangled Webs – A Web Business Course

Introduction

White lights sparkle from barren Sloane Square trees onto Peter Jones department store displays.  Chelsea, London…around January 1972. I was walking up the King’s Road. London’s weather was damp and cold but my spirits were high.  The fountain in the square bubbled. Taxis wheezed their oily rattle and the tube rumbled below.  This was where the action was…for me at least then.

I had left my business in Hong Kong and moved to London…living on Radnor Walk just off the King’s Road near the Radnor Arms pub…a perfect place for a twenty  something year old to be…then.

Fast forward…40 years.  Merri and I still love London…for maybe three days…then we retire quickly to our quiet Andean, Blue Ridge or Pacific beach retreats.   Times and tastes change. As do wants…needs and desires.

Welcome to this course, “The Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Internet Business.”   A course that can help you change …  survive … prosper and welcome change.  Because life is change and change brings tangled webs.

This course is being written now but was really researched on the turbulent waters of the South China Sea…along the King’s Road Chelsea…by the black walls of Edinburgh Castle…on the gentle slopes of Cotswold hills, on Copenhagen docks and along the soft sands of the Gulf of Mexico.

Throw in a pinch of North Carolina woods, Andean mountains, technology and fate…and you have this course about how to get ahead of the tangle with the web. Never before has it been possible for an individual with capital to build a business…survive…do well and even beat big business because of change and the web.

This is because Tangled Webs is a course about how to create your own business…on the web…the internet and we must plunge much deeper then just business and internet technology to truly understand the web.   This electronic virtual world is just a reflection and tool in a much bigger…deeper…real web.

For years, one of my favorite success sayings has been that the three most important choices we make in life are; who our parents will be, what country we are born in, and where we are standing when the volcano explodes.

In short  business… the world… the universe… existence… all of life…is a tangled web… that has been spun and continues to spin from almost imperceptible threads.

These threads, spun from our hidden unwinding, have brought us to the internet…as a reflection of who we have been…what we now are and who we will become.

Consequently a course on just the internet would be like a car without an engine. A course just about the internet and business would be a complete car but without a driver.   Plus we need to include the journey and destination as well!

Tangled Web weaves the history of Merri’s and my business … how it evolved … how it morphed from a print publishing business to internet only and how we use websites and email in business now.

We’ll look at how to create websites using the seven Ps…

Passion
Problem
Person
Profitably Priced Product
Prospecting Path
Promise
Presentation

We’ll let our webmaster examine all the technical aspects of how to run an internet business:

Search Engine Optimization
Pay Per Click
Landing Pages
Email Generators
List Controllers
Shopping Carts
Servers

Yet we’ll dig deeper, right to the essence of a successful internet business that successfully untangles the web because I suspect that this course has the possibility to go out of date faster than any I have ever written before. The Internet evolves so quickly and there are always new things being added. It’s enough to make your head spin.

But what you will learn here are the fundamentals that work in business on the Internet. We’ll cut through the fog and show you what works for us and how to build a solid business regardless of what changes come about in technology, search engines or what the new “Internet fad” may be.

We will also deal with evolution and fate… how they work in business and how they can help your web business grow from this starting point.

This course will end differently than foreseen. Each sentence shared has potential to spark new ideas.  Your questions, as the course unfolds, will undoubtedly alter the course of this course.

I can almost guarantee that your business will not evolve exactly as you imagined either.  Business plans are guesstimates that help improve a business as it grows…but rarely a real guide.  Experience refines and improves us as our act of doing a business teaches us.  We can never see what we do not know. Only doing reveals this.  Plus technology and fate mix into our progress as well.

Let’s go back to that winter walk down the King’s Road about 40 years years ago. I could not have imagined that being there would mean my son (to be born years away) would be British.  I could not have looked at the many shop windows there and seen in their reflection that he would go to the University in Edinburgh many years later.

I would have missed my visit to that Scottish city to find a meditation teacher for my son…nor that I would give that teacher one of my courses on how to have an international business.  How could I have known that this would lead that teacher to publish his own book that would so impress a Swedish computer whiz that he hired the teacher to work in his computer firm where he learned his internet skills.
Nor would I have known how that at teacher’s suggestion a decade later I would start my website which would eventually become a huge portion of our business.

What a tangled unforeseeable web..that turned out so well.

None of this was in my business plan!  Nor will the unseen threads that tangle the web of your life and business be in yours.

So what do we know about this course?

We know:

#1: That the the facts…figures…principles and ideas we’ll share, if applied will work for your business right now.

#2: That these lessons will prepare you for a web based business in the here and now that is in a position to evolve with the internet as it continues to shift and grow.

#3: That you can make millions in this type of business as I have.

#4: That this business can give you enormous freedom because you can operate anywhere.  This introduction was written in a tiny Andean village in Ecuador.  The outline below was written at our deep woods Blue Ridge farm.  The work before and the words scribbled next week will be on the Pacific coast. This year, I’ll likely send you messages from Florida, Oregon, London, Copenhagen, as well as North Carolina and Ecuador…plus who knows where.

#5: We’ll make this course fun…because in the end this course is about how to create an enjoyable business journey transported over the web.

Here are the lessons we have planned now.

#1: How My Internet Business Began

#2: Our Results – How We Boost sales

#3: Seven Ps PASSION – PERSON – PROBLEM – PROSPECTING PATH – PROMISE – PRESENTATION – PROFITABLE PRICE

#4: Turn Passion to Profit.

#5: How to Identify your prospects.

#6: How to identify problems.

#7: How to choose prospecting path. SEO – PPC – Strategic Alliance – Referals – Viral marketing.

#8: How to create ads.

#9: How to create landing pages.

#10: How to develop Presentation (marketing string).

#11: How to choose and test price.

#12: How & why to create daily messages.

#13: Multi product development…free reports…free ezines…paid subscriptions…seminars…tours ,,,personal services…clubs etc. How one product leads to another.  Advertising and especially the long tail.

#14: How to manage your business finances.

Each course will also have a home work assignment…studying  a website. So let’s start with Merri’s and mine. Visit:
