Join our Import-Export Tour in Ecuador …to the Crafts Trails starting in Quito.
The tour visits the markets, famous and obscure where hand made, on one of a kind crafts are sold.
Meet the artists, designers, creators, craftsmen, wholesalers and visit them in their workshops, homes and markets.
Over the past 15 years, we have been traveling, digging, exploring and enjoying ourselves all over Ecuador to create this tour that helps potential exporters really experience the Export Trail.
You’ll find ways to increase security, independence, freedom, wealth and well-being while helping this very deserving country and its indigenous people.
Improve the quality of your life, expand your horizons and reduce the tax you pay as you increase asset protection by having an overseas company and overseas income!
Small at home export businesses can set us free.
The first benefit of an Ecuador export businesses is the beauty and serenity of Ecuador. When in Ecuador Merri and I greet each dawn with walk through gentle Cotacachi, a village filled with peace. Here is one of the many lamp lined avenues shining in the morn.
What a great business to enjoy this and make money as well.
There is such satisfaction in having a business that allows us to travel and live in places we choose. Such freedom..such fun not to mention the profit arising each day and finding yet more money rolling in.
Join other like minded souls this year in Ecuador to learn how to gain freedom and self fulfillment through Ecuador exports.
See opportunity everywhere in Ecuador.
In wood products.
In Ecuador’s art.
And all types of exports.
A silver lining comes from Merri’s and my extensive travels throughout Ecuador . We have searched, scoured and scrounged our way across this nation to find special products and goods that you can export in a suitcase and make outstanding profits.
You’ll go to the high Andes . You’ll see products from Zuleta where they create handmade “green” cotton-one-of-a-kind tableware, shirts, specialty items. You’ll travel everyday to see different markets, crafts people and masters who create special products that will make your eyes gleam with delight…both for their uniqueness and salability.
In addition, over the years we’ve combined this knowledge and experience with contacts in the form of American and European readers who now live in Ecuador. Working with them we have set up office and business facilities to create an export support service that we can now offer to you.
We have even purchased a 180 year old hacienda that is a charming hotel to turn into your business center!
Here’s the hotel. This is where we will conduct the course when we are not visiting markets. Rooms are only $59 a night + service & tax.
Plus we have an experienced English-Spanish speaking staff here who can act as your local backup for the business.
This combination makes it possible for you to have your own Ecuadorian import/export business, which can be run from your home or in your own Ecuadorian hideaway you’ll be able to buy with your extra profits.
Timing for such a business has never been better!
Exporting has already created fortunes for a few sophisticated individuals. Now because of our knowledge, experience and contacts, a special business is available for you. Until recently, operating an overseas business took a great deal of time and effort to start. This is no longer true.
Technology makes it possible to take your business where opportunity is best and allows you to run this business from anywhere in the world. You can run your export business from an office or at home! The internet makes this more possible than ever before and at the course we’ll share ideas on how to develop and use your website to enhance sales.
The internet is the Colt 45 of business, the great equalizer. If you choose to have your own import-export business you too can let the internet help your business grow for wealth and freedom.
The export expedition combines theory, practice and contacts.
Ecuador is an incredible bargain basement business opportunity now.
Many of our readers enjoy Ecuador, have developed export products and some have even moved to Ecuador and started businesses and we have used this fact to create a system that can help you develop your own export business.
You can gain independence, have more income, security and enjoy overseas travel. This course is not pie in the sky theory. The knowledge you gain comes from years of experience and from our extensive research plus out reader’s current global export activity.
The course is designed so your international business will be easy to start and keep going (with the help of the contacts if you choose).
The Export Trail is an extensive four day tour.
Yet the course is only $799 – $999 for a couple. You will learn directly from the contacts we introduce to you.
You’ll learn why a business in Ecuador is the ultimate lawsuit and tax protection and why global businesses are immune to recessions. You need not suffer during recession, inflation or during market crashes. Fatal economic flaws which ruin others create your profits for you.
Our goal is to help you find products that:
#1: Can be sold to easily identified markets.
#2: Can be marked up many times while allowing a fair trade for the indigenous.
#3: Can be imported in a suitcase.
The tour gives you practical way to achieve these goals in three ways.
You share the practical experience from the shipments that we have actually incurred in our own business. You learn the problems we encountered and how to avoid them. (This alone will save you far more than the course tuition.)
One incredibly valuable lesson is on how to buy at the source… and how sometimes it is better to not buy at the source. You will also learn how to establish your market… how to sell your inventory and to whom. How to know your product, your market, your source, and your competition.
Most important you will learn how to market your products abroad.
Which products? The Import/Export Expedition has already identified carved wood, architectural and decorative woods designs in San Antonio de Ibarra.
Textiles from Otavalo.
Here is one of the vendors in Otavalo photographed by delegates at our last Import-Export course.
Religious Santos and Icons from San Antonio de Ibarra
Jewelry from San Goqui.
Paintings from all over Ecuador.
Here is an example of one type of art that a previous course delegate is having made from recycled paper and a metallic paint. Their Reiki symbol line of art is selling as fast as they can get it produced.
Leathers in Cotacachi.
Here are flowers I imported that were grown in Imbabura.
I regularly import roses from Ecuador at a fraction of the price you normally pay. Here I am with 250 roses we had delivered to our home in North Carolina for our own use.
You will visit many of these places and more so you can start your business directly from the course after you have learned the fundamentals, visited these places, seen the goods and learned how and meet contacts who can back you up (or even act as a joint venture partners).
Learn how to enjoy the finest things in life because of international friendships plus how to develop them.
The course helps you choose the business you want. Many professionals look for new beginnings, turning hobbies to profits. For example you’ll learn how to set up tours for golfing, fishing, horse riding and other hobbies can be successful businesses. The contacts alone are worth ten times the cost of the course.
We have developed contacts with top businessmen, bankers, accountants, attorneys, marketing experts, business consultants, agents all over the country that can help you, large or small, full or part time.
There you have it, valuable contacts and knowledge about timely and fulfilling business opportunities that you can cash in on now. Regardless of whether you want your business to make millions, or just add excitement and adventure in your life, to reduce tax or even live abroad, the Import/Export tour can help you get involved with something you love and turn after tax costs into tax deductible expenses. Whether you have a successful business, want a part time business for change or as job security, this course can be of enormous value to you.
The tour is only $499 ($749 for a couple). This is nothing compared to the incredible education you gain and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth now.
One delegate who attended our Ecuador export expedition wrote:
“Our business of selling Ecuador products is still going well. We are now appointing Agents across Australia and should have the whole country covered by mid-August. Our initial shops continue to re-order on a regular basis. The best shops seem to re-order every two weeks.
We have also received inquiry to provide buying services for people in a few other countries. So we will be seriously thinking about starting our own brand name to market globally. If successful, it should help many Ecuadorians.”
Another couple who attended this expedition sell the goods they export at flea markets.
They wrote: “Good Evening Gary/Merri. Speaking of a small business, we have opened All American Enterprises, LLC (AAE) which includes selling products from Ecuador at a trade days operation about 200 miles East of Dallas. I don’t know if we are off to a “bang” but we are sure having fun. See attached pictures to include our model Consuella trying to look indigenous.
Please tell Merri we have made profit on our inventory and the big sellers are alpaca silver jewelry and Octovalo alpaca ponchos. We will visit at the end of September and would like to restock to include blankets/ponchos/throws from Hilana. “
Space makes it impossible to explain everything in the tour, but I am convinced if you try it, you will find it improves your entire way of life!
There has never been a time when the risk of higher tax, greater unemployment and investment dangers were higher in North America, but neither has the opportunity for small businesses abroad been so outstanding.
Here is one of the Ecuador silver workers.
Another jewelry workshop does interesting work in silver and ostrich eggs!
Another craftsman does incredible wood carvings covered in gold leaf like this horse.
and incredible gold and bejeweled wooden Faberge egg.
Todd Smith, another attendee, wrote this:
“Recently Gary recommended a printer in Cotacachi, Ecuador, for me to use to print my photographic greeting cards. I was quite skeptical about doing business in Ecuador, both for the hassle of sending money, shipping the product, and most importantly the quality of the printing. As a photographer, I am quite picky about printing. But, after three years of good experience with Gary, I decided to take another risk and try the printer. The results were outstanding–better than many press jobs I’ve seen in the US, and the price was terrific.
I’ve learned that Gary likes to push his students to try things they thought were too risky. Gary lives on the cutting edge. But, interestingly enough, I don’t think he is really a risk-taker, because his feet are always firmly planted on the ground. I’ve learned over time that I can trust Gary’s thinking, and that he really does come up with some unusual, and very effective, solutions to problems that I’ve tried to solve on my own.
My suggestion is simply to try out Gary. You may have to risk some money, but my experience has been so positive that feel safe in saying that the risk will be well worth it. Of the $1000 or so that I invested , I have earned many thousands in return, and have created a lifestyle for myself that is far more fulfilling than anything I had previously.
I did the import/export course last year in Cotacachi, though I was in Ecuador mainly for photography. While I was there, I met one of Gary’s contacts in the rose business. We went to his plantation and he was very willing to work with any of Gary’s students to export flowers to the US or Canada. He showed us prices that appeared to me as if they would form the basis of a very profitable floral business. He also explained how the flowers are shipped FedEx directly to you, and they are cut fresh before the shipment. This means that the flowers you resell will last much longer than those that have been sitting in a florist’s shop forever. This could be a significant advantage over the competition, and could generate some very satisfied customers. Sincerely, Todd Smith“
Here I am with Todd Smith trying new tailor made Ecuador suits that cost $135 to $200…an excellent Ecuador export.
