The greatest asset we can have in this time of rapid change is the ability to earn income anywhere in the world. Import and export is one perfect way to do this. This is why we have been focusing on Ecuador exports. Those who learn how to correctly import and export gain enormous freedom. This is a truly independent, horizon broadening business that can be profitable, fulfilling and helps the global community evolve.
One great part of our Ecuador import export courses is the interaction of the knowledge and the people. Every Ecuador import export course is different because it blends what the instructors share and the wisdom of that class. We all learn from one another.
This message shares shots of the speakers and delegates at one Ecuador import export course as a tribute to the power of sharing.
Here I am of course. Not to show me, but to show how we can all walk our talk. I have not owned a suit for more than 20 years. Yet at our last import export expedition I donned my new tailor made wool suit, that cost just $130, to show delegates a business idea. Export tailor made suits from Ecuador!
Here is the tailor. His shop is next to our inn El Meson.
Here is a great shot of a repeat delegate who says “I have come back again because being down here just makes me feel good”.
Maggie is a bull dog when it comes to sorting out opportunity and making contact with shippers, wholesalers and all the support industries that exporters need. She really does lead the classes and walks her talk since she originally attended this course herself and is now actively engaged in Ecuador exports.

Here is Dr. Andres Cordova. Andres is our friend and attorney. His grandfather was one of Ecuador’s beloved Presidents and Andres’ law firm represents the treasury department of Ecuador. Yet Andres has the human touch and really looks after our clients here. Recently a delegate was had his bag stolen in Quito on his way home. He lost his passport, wallet, everything. Andres left his Sunday dinner picked up the delegate, gave him $200 cash and sent him back to us. Another delegate had a customs problem arriving in Quito. Andres came in the middle of the night and immediately sorted this out.
Dr. Carlos Tobar, a Fulbright scholar and Magna Cum Laude graduate of George Washington University speaks about environmental export projects.
One delegate inspects sweaters at Winter Sun another sweater knitter that exports to the US.
Delegate Bonnie Keogh wrote “I love to travel, but since I’m not independently wealthy, I also need to make money. What really put me over the edge (or on the airplane) was the addition of Gary and Merri Scott. Second to traveling, I love to shop, especially for unique, handmade items. So, how could I resist the temptation to learn how to cash in on my two passions!
“Each speaker educated us with their experiences, they actually do earn money following their passions, they don’t just talk about it. I gained years worth of hard-earned education in just two days, but the most important things I took home with me were inspiration and confidence. I could do this too; and I did! In March 2006, I made one of my dreams come true. I went to Ecuador. I attended the Scott’s import/export seminar, we visited artists, markets and villages. It was a treat to see the great variety of handmade items and meet the friendly artists. I started to see the possibilities. I filled my suitcases in no time. Most of those things were sold to coworkers and friends and covered the costs of my trip. Yeah! I returned to Ecuador in October, 2006. I spent two weeks attending Spanish classes in Quito and the next two weeks shopping. Once home, I sold my goods at an international bazaar and again paid for my trip expenses. Do I plan to continue? You bet! I have ideas for other places to sell my goods and some great material for travel articles. I am learning more each trip and gaining experience and confidence and most importantly, I love doing it! Attending your workshop was the catalyst that gave me the courage to take the plunge. Thank you for enriching my life.”
What makes this all possible, fun and fulfilling are the wonderful sweet people of Ecuador. For their wonderful energy we give thanks.
Until next message, may your life and business be good.
