Falling for Profit


Here are two important clues on how to live anywhere but earn everywhere.

The clue comes from the problem of falling.

A recent message at this site “The Greatest Risk to Your Health” explained that falling is one of the greatest health risks to Americans over the age of 60.

This is a global problem it seems.

falling

Image from article “Afraid of falling, for older adults, the Dutch have a cure.” (1)

The article explains how approximately 3.2 million Dutch are 65 or older and that in the Netherlands there is a growing number of courses on how to fall.

This is a new trend that was virtually unheard of a decade ago.  The courses are now common enough that the government rates them.

The article says: Certain forms of Dutch health insurance even cover part of the costs.

Here is the first clue.  Look for businesses where governments, institutions or insurance require or will pay for words.

Here is an example.  When Merri and I used to conduct courses on international investing and its tax consequences,  we had the syllabus registered with state agencies so attorneys and accountants could use our course to fulfill some of their continuing education credits.

In another example when we trained Super Spanish teachers, one student was a nurse who lived in Costa Rica.  We urged this teacher to create a medical Spanish course that fulfilled continuing education requirements and was conducted in Costa Rica.  If you are a nurse which course would you prefer this cold winter?  New methods of needle sterilization conducted in cold Wisconsin… or medical Spanish taught in warm Costa Rica?

Get the point?  The nurses have to get a certain number of hours of education.   Many will choose to fulfill that obligation in an enjoyable way.  There are profits in making any type of mandatory process attractive.

In an ongoing example, liquor stores in some states are required to give part of their profits to schools to educate students on the risks of drinking alcohol.  Many schools are not geared up to teach such a course.  One of our friends created a drinking educational course that is taught at the schools.

Here is the second clue:

The article about training Dutch elders to fall says: They are not interested in courses on falling at first, but once they see that they can do it, then it’s fun. But there is also a very important social aspect.  Indeed, seeing one another helplessly sprawled across the gym mats gave way to giggling and plenty of dry comments, knowing jokes, general ribbing and hilarity.  “Stop your chattering,” the teacher warned a group of well-dressed women who were supposed to be concentrating on the correct way to let themselves fall onto the foot-thick blue mat.  “I would,” said a student. “But I have no one to talk with all day.”

The clue is… events make sense even in the world of webinars, because extra energy is created by socialization.

We are social animals.

There is an extra buzz that comes from delegates speaking to one another at events.  When Merri and I conducted numerous courses each year, we were originally puzzled at how many delegates returned to the same course again and again.  We finally realized that our events attracted like-minded souls.  The delegates gained from and enjoyed each time from socializing with other delegates.

Many friendships were made.  Two attendees who met at one of our courses fell in love and were eventually married!

As the world turns and becomes more virtual at a faster pace, people become more isolated.  Online social networking is great, but no form of interaction works better than face to face.

In the examples above you have seen how to offer courses for all ages, young students who need to know about the risks of alcohol and the elderly who might fall even if they do not drink.

This is why falling in love with a business of conducting events… even if it teaches falling, can help you live anywhere, but earn everywhere.

Turn Talking and Words into Cash

Why words are better than cash.

You can turn talking into cash.  Mix in a little wisdom and deliver benefits.  The value of honest word’s never deflate.  A dollar, decades ago, was worth 15 greenbacks today… or more.   Useful, wise words, even hundreds of years aged… are often worth more now.

Take these 153 year old words: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

Has time diminished the value of these words?

Learn how to earn extra income from an events business created by travel or staying at home.  Create events where you can earn from speaking something good… or if you don’t like to talk… letting others talk (and earn) for you.

Do you crave freedom… and perhaps adventure?

Do you at least desire to get out of the rat race?

Do you want to travel…spend time…live…laugh or love in more than just one place?  Do you the places you go to be ones you choose?

Or would you rather settle down in a low stress, safe, nurturing town, abroad or in Smalltown USA?

You can talk your way into the lifestyle or let others talk for you.

There are few people more capable of promising this type of life than Merri and me.

For 50 years (from May 1968) we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have had an events business conducting seminars, workshops, courses and tours.

All we have had to do is gather groups and talk about what we do.  Sometimes we let others do all the talking!

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

Sometimes we have incredible adventures.

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

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

gary-scott-semainsr

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

We even built a…

little-horse-creek

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

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

gary-scott

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

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

ecuador-exports

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now we want to spend more time with my mom, children and grandkids so we arrange events at our home.

There is a possibility that Merri and I know more about conducting events than 99.9% of the people in the world.  Because so many have asked… we created an online correspondence course on how to create your own events business.

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

See how to benefit from this course development after you have studied this introduction.

“Event- Full Business” – How to Turn Your Experiences into an Events Business

Sometime about 30 years ago…. around 1987:

naigara-falls

Photo from www.thetoptensite.com/Niagara_Falls.html

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

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

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

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

We have earned in many ways since then… until now… 30 + years later.

Again and again we get notes from readers of our website that go something like this…

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

Obviously, something we did for this client 30 years ago brought this extra business to us now.

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

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

When it comes to conducting events, there are few people with more experience than Merri and me.  Over 49 years we have organized, marketed and conducted thousands of tours for tens of thousands of people in dozens and dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).

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

Lessons include:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#11: List building.

#12: Alternative seminar and course location options.

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

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

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

We would like to welcome you to “Event – Full Business”.

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

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

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

In this offer, you can get the course “Event-Full Business” free when you join the International Club.

Join The International Club.  Save $418.78.

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

  • The course “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Self Publish & SNAP”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”
  • The course “International Business Made EZ”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross

Club members also learn ways to be be healthier and have more energy.   I have created three natural health reports about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive all three FREE as club member and save $59.85.

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

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

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of numerous Model Portfolios, called Pifolio.

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

There are no secrets about this portfolio except that these mathematicians ignore the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

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

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

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

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

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

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $299.

Club members also receive Pi and the $29.95 report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” and the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip 2018” FREE.

Save $418.78… when you become a club member.

Here’s Your Christmas Gift From Us


Merry Christmas.   Here’s a gift from Merri and me, a thought and an exercise that can make your life more clear.

This is a special celebration, filled with wisdom for the ages.  Merri and I send our best wishes that for you, your friends and family, this is a special one… filled with joy and good.

I have great interest in ancient wisdom and its role in history.  I look for ideas that repeat themselves again and again.

For example my research on the Order of Knights Hospitaller and on Andean shamanic health secrets revealed that both disciplines used a similar posture.  This kneeling is often, mistakenly, associated as simply a position to prayer.

Actually this posture is much more.

knightshospitaller

In yoga this posture is known as the Warrior.

yoga

Image from Yogaoutlet.com (1).

This explanation of the Benefits of the Warrior I Pose from Yogaoutlet.com shows how this pose can assist in prayer and improve our natural health at the same time.

Virabhadrasana I (warrior) stretches the whole front side of the body while strengthening the thighs, ankles, and back.  This is a powerful standing pose that develops stamina, balance, and coordination.  It tones the abdomen, ankles, and arches of the feet.  This pose also stretches the chest and lungs, improving breathing capacity and invigorating the body.  It can be therapeutic for sciatica. It also encourages greater flexibility, strength, and range of motion in the feet, increasing circulation as it warms all of the muscles.

Beyond the physical posture, Warrior I creates deep concentration. Focusing on your foundation and building the pose from the ground up reduces distractions and hones your energy.  Your mind becomes focused, calm, and clear.

No wonder ancient wisdoms encouraged worshipers to use the posture.  What could be better that focus, calm and clarity when in prayer?

This is the type of information we seek to share with you… ancient wisdom from numerous sources that all shine a light on the same thing.

Here is another idea we found in our studies of ancient wisdoms beginning with the teachings of  the Knights Hospitaller.

I found that Albert Einstein, Albert Schweitzer, Alexander von Humboldt, even Michaelangelo and many other names you would recognize have been members.  These men and the Grand Masters all had one special thing in common.  They were men of peace.

Yet these orders were founded nearly a thousand years ago around 1048 because of a war.  The hospitallers built and ran a hospital in Jerusalem for  pilgrims visiting the Holy City during the crusades.

This Order exists because of a war but are based on beliefs about how to attain peace.

Here is the simple Christmas thought that this order has passed down for a millennium.

“We are all one.  We have more in common than we have differences.  Love one another and live in peace.”

These orders have celebrated the birth of Christ, which offers hope to everyone and shows that all negativity can be overcome by the positive power of love.

This was confirmed in a wonderful Christmas article in an issue of the Economist magazine entitled “A Mary for All” (2) which points out links between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  One portion explains how Mary is Islam’s most honored woman and that she is the only one to have an entire chapter named after her in the Koran.

So here is the message of ancient wisdom that has been passed down for nearly a millennium.

“A thousand years is enough.  Let’s love one another regardless of race, religion or creed.  We have so much more in common than we have differences. We’ll all be more abundant if we have peace on earth for all men!”

Merry Christmas to you, one and all.

Gary & Merri

Beyond Chelation

This message outlines how a simple (and incredibly low cost) amino acid can help improve cardiovascular systems, increase memory, improve vision, enhance vitality, expand energy and extend lifespan.

A delegate at one of our courses was a doctor in his eighties but who had the energy and looks of a much, much younger man.  When asked about his secret of youth he said his vitality was based on several factors.  A few of them you would expect, such as good diet, sufficient exercise and plenty of activity in a strong, purposeful life.  Then he explained another secret of his youth and energy: chelation.

This youthful doctor told us he had been running the largest I.V. chelation center in the United States from Hawaii. Hardening of the arteries is such a huge problem in our modern world that he was making a fortune.

Then, he said, he had learned about a vitamin-mineral formula that was so effective that he shut down his clinics and exclusively used this simple formula which he felt had better results than I.V. chelation therapy.

Years of research are behind this comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional supplement, designed to maintain and promote vascular health, mental and physical well being.

That client and doctor friend gave us a month’s supply of this formula.  He thought it would be excellent for us and would help us with traveling also.  Merri and I tried this product ourselves and felt better and better.

We have made it a point to take heart healthy supplements since.  We love the savings we enjoy with the mixed supplement we use.   It is so much less expensive than all the numerous other vitamins and minerals that we had been taking.  We actually were spending less!

The system we use is so convenient.  Everything is in one simple scoop of powder we take daily.  Especially when we travel we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road.  No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.

As is so often the case when we like something we start talking about it and pretty soon, a batch of friends were taking Vitality Force and telling us great things about their experiences.  They reordered so much of it through that I decided to make it available to all my readers.

Let me begin by saying that Vitality Force has not been evaluated by the FDA.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease and should only be taken as a food supplement.  Having said this, I share information about Vitality Force below.

This supplement combines over two dozen ingredients, known to have beneficial effects, into one total cardiovascular support program.

Vitality Force’s main ingredient is L-arginine.  Studies have shown that L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, an important cardiovascular signaling molecule.

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is the biological precursor of nitric oxide.

The medical establishment has known about the benefits of nitric oxide as nitroglycerine and amyl nitrite which creates a flood of nitric oxide have been used in medicine for over a century.

Nitric oxide is an important signal and effector molecule made by the blood vessels’ lining. The endothelium is exquisitely sensitive to the physical and chemical conditions inside our blood vessels. When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as physical activity and low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide.  That’s good because nitric oxide expands the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and decreasing plaque growth and blood clotting.

In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  It is so  important in neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, that one year it was named “Molecule of the Year”.   Research into its function led to a Nobel Prize for discovering its importance as a cardiovascular signalling molecule. The nitric oxide cycle especially helps the heart.

Nitric oxide is the simple molecule that improves the flow of blood to the heart body and brain, It also increases energy and stamina, relieve  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.  Nitric oxide improves the health of the inner wall of a blood vessel, keeps vessels pliable and elastic, dilates blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

There are many benefits from removing plaque from the body:

  1. Helps to prevent arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
  2. Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
  3. Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
  4. Helps increase American life expectancy
  5. Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  6. Improves circulation
  7. Improves vision and hearing
  8. Improves liver function
  9. Improves skin texture and tone
  10. Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
  11. Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
  12. Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
  13. Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
  14. Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
  15. Helps to increase tissue oxygenation

Anti-Aging, Longevity, and Preventative Medicine are the Future!

With our knowledge of alternative medicine doubling every three years and our technology advancing exponentially, we are entering an age where we are able to probably turn our biological clock backwards!  Instruments are now in use that can measure the functioning of each of our physical organs and new high potency nutritional supplements, hormonal balancing, and advanced oral chelation products have become available which can enhance the functioning of our organs and help prevent heart attacks and fight many of the auto-immune and degenerative diseases that are plaguing modern society.

There is one more benefit.  That is the savings and convenience.  Vitality Force is much more than just an all natural solution for cardiovascular health.

The formula includes the highest quality arginine, vitamins, minerals, and other immune boosting ingredients. It works by dilating the blood vessels to allow more oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the body.  This helps improve the  bio-availability of all nutrients and helps enhance your other supplements that you may already be taking.

I like the powdered form because research suggests that consuming liquid nutritional products provides significantly improved absorption, (80% vs. 20% from tablets).

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

*  Dilated blood vessels to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and the cardiovascular system

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

The Vitality Force formula includes:

  • L-Citrulline
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • B1 (thiamine)
  • B2 (riboflavin)
  • B3
  • B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • B6 (pyridoxine)
  • B12 (methylcobalamin)
  • Folate
  • CoQ10
  • Omega 3
  • Resveratrol
  • Potassium
  • Chromium Polynicotinate
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Fulvic Minerals
  • AstraGin™
  • Fructooligo Saccharide
  • Stevia

I get all these ingredients in Vitality Force from one daily scoop of powder!  I take mine first thing each morning and can feel a big positive difference in my vitality.

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

Taking Vitality Force provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form.

Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals.  The powder is tasty, easy to use and one container has a month’s supply, which at $44.95 makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.

Vitality begins with activity including physical activity.  Many factors in modern living inhibit our physical activity.  There is a lot of stress to maintain a lifestyle.  Modern conveniences like the computer, electricity and car make it easier not to exercise.  There is also a difficulty in obtaining vitamin filled and rich, healthy food.  All of this saps vitality and can lead to a negative health spiral.  We feel badly so we eat comfort food and sit.  This makes us feel worse and the negative spiral deepens.

One way to break bad habits and a negative health spiral is to generate more nitric oxide.

One way to generate more nitric oxide is simply by taking a scoop of Vitality Force each day!

The Greatest Risk to Your Health


If you are over 60, falls may be the greatest risk to your health.

That’s why I do this yoga posture almost everyday… to maintain better balance.  This exercise, called the “Llama Walk” promotes leg exercise and good balance.

llama walk

This is simple, easy, does not take much time and can be a key to living longer…  and better.

My friends at Independence Monthly recently published this note from an emergency room MD:

Avoid falls: Falls are the most serious common injury to the elderly. Broken hips are the worst, leading to disability and death in 25% of cases.  Most of these falls occur in bathrooms, so handrails, no-skid surfaces, and shower chairs go a long way in preventing injury.  Be sure loose carpet is tacked down and that stair railings are secure.  Ask someone else to change light bulbs (I’ve treated too many seniors who fell doing this), and be sure the smoke alarms all work.  Have someone check on seniors living alone: too many stay on the floor for hours or days until help arrives.

I highly recommend Independence Monthly and urge you to read the details about how the December issue can improve your life.

The December issue features a little-known healthcare option that give you.

  • Same-day, set-price appointments with your doctor.
  • A set fee for unlimited visits!
  • Novel pricing.
  • Ease of access to primary healthcare.
  • 30-60 minute doctor visits as standard.
  • End of rushed examinations with a time-pressured practitioner.
  • Your doctor’s cell phone number for off-hours house calls.

Better Lifestyle Anytime


We can have a better lifestyle anytime.

This series has been looking at rewriting the social dialogue and creating a new word that describes the fact that technology means that we gain more from experience than we lose from age.

The socio-economic mindset is behind the times working in an educate… procreate… sedate mode.   The production model is based around learning… working… retiring.  This progression is outdated… unnecessary and also happens to be pushing the global financial system into bankruptcy and ruin.   High costs of pensions and social security do not work in an the global economies aging demographic model.   Nor are these costs required.

A huge portion of today’s population is more capable of producing as much or more at 65 and beyond than they were at 35.

This is a time when the huge demographic wave of boomers can make a major contribution to society or suck it dry.

This is a time when boomers can also really do what they love and turn their passions into profit.

Imagine reaching 65 and expecting to have 30 or 40 years more to be affluent, productive and fulfilled.

30 or 40 years?  What can we do when we are 95?

How about teach yoga?

95 year old yoga teacher

These photos are from an article about this yoga teacher who turned 95 years old. See the article at Rebellsociety.com.

95 year old yoga teacher

This is an inspiration for anyone who is wondering.. “What’s next” and “What can I do?”

Do what you love. Turn your passion into profit.  There is nothing that can really stop you… past background…money…or  age.

If anyone doubts you or tries to engage you in old limiting, social dialogue remind yourself of the great Rumi Poem:

“Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you”.

Your assistance please.  The world needs a new word to describe the fact that technology means we gain more from experience  than lose from age.  The learn/earn/retire society is dead.  Long live active full lives!

There is no reason for most people to be stuck in a drab lifestyle or to retire. There are a multitude of reasons why we can have excitement, fulfillment and profit in pinnacle careers at any age.

But we do not have a word that describes this population which are now in a superior position to serve.

We need a neologism to enhance the social dialogue.  Please see Neologism to vote

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere.

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

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).
