A major theme in our messages is that we’ll be facing the loss of currency purchasing power. Opportunities created by this problem lay in equities, real estate, commodities and your own small business. Your own business involved in real estate and commodities could make extra sense.
Our orange groves are like producers of green gold… that fight inflation. See below an idea that ties into Ecuador imports.
Yesterday’s message Ecuador Imports looked at new ideas on nonfood plants that produce biofuels.
There is one more new idea that ties into this idea… Ted’s Stuff.
This is a great time to bring up this product because it was at Christmas eleven or twelve years ago that I first wrote about Ted’s Stuff.
Ted Tidwell has been a friend and reader for decades and he gave me a bottle of this organic, biodegradable degreaser called “1st enviro safety organic colloidal degreaser.” (This is why I call it Ted’s Stuff!)
I had been trimming a large outdoor live tree with lights and my hands were covered with pitch. I thought, “Let’s try Ted’s Stuff.” The pitch melted away and I was hooked!
We started using it as our hand soap because of the Health scam that most soap makers use to trick the public.
We started using Ted’s Stuff on everything because though it is totally organic and readily biodegradable, it is a potent germ killer.
I have a copy of a lab report from Davis Analytical Laboratories in Sarasota, Florida which shows that two to three drops of Ted’s stuff has the same effect as one drop of clorox. We began using it wash our dishes, floors, windows, to remove spots and all our cleaning chores.
Then we began to discover other uses for Ted’s stuff. For example it degreases ants and they leave. Then when we discovered the Wooly Adelgid Blight on the hemlocks at our North Carolina farm… we brought out an arborist and tested it on these terrible aphids that are killing hemlocks up and down the US East Coast.
He was amazed, incorporated Ted’s Stuff into his business and has since treated thousands of hemlocks for this disease with Ted’s Stuff. Ours and others are looking very good including one giant beautiful hemlock which was heavily infected when we bought the farm 12 years ago….now this old giant is green again!
So Ted’s Stuff creates an import opportunity in Ecuador or elsewhere.
Over the years, Ted has discovered that this degreaser and some derivative formulas make excellent bio washes, fertilizers and even pesticides (though they cannot be sold as such in some countries).
These solutions are certified free of all carcinogens.
One of the world’s largest retailers did an intensive study of all “green” and “environmental” cleaning products and discovered that these cleaners of Ted’s are the only truly green ones.
Many other “safe” cleaning products contain ethylene oxide and dioxane, both known to cause cancer.
Here is where the opportunity comes in. The product can help farmers in many countries. Mexico is one good example. Ted sent me this note about his experiences in Mexico.
The first small test sample of the cleaner was formulated for farming and sent to Mexico in June 2007.
A PhD Chemist from Poly Tech Institute tested it on five acres of sweet corn in Guanajuato. It was past the normal planting season but he planted anyway. The stalks grew to eight feet tall and the ears were much larger than normal. The stalks were so robust and healthy, that after the harvest, he sold the stalks for cow feed. Here is the corn.
tall and with these long ears.
Corn is the biggest crop in Mexico. The average Mexican corn farmer earns about $100 per acre. Dr. Rico’s five acres brought him approximate $2,000 or $400 per acre.
In Nuevo Italia, another farmer treated approximately 1,000 mango trees. He advised that his increased averaged 300 additional mangos per tree and earned an extra $60,000 income.
Antonio Gutierrez, La Ruana, owned 70 acres of diseased limes. In 2007, his total income was only $18,000. He tested this BioWash on several rows and had positive results.
Here is Antonio in front of a tree that had been diseased but recovered after BioWashing.
In 2008, Antonio BioWashed his entire 70 acres. By February, which was mid-season his income had already soared to over $100,000.
Ted Tidwell and Antonio.
His quality had increase so significantly that he received six pesos per kilo instead of the normal four pesos per kilo. His yield has increased dramatically. Instead of the usual 2 to four limes he had clusters of eleven limes.
Antonio was so pleased with his lime results, he BioWashed 25 acres of papayas. Instead of tall, spindly Florida style papaya trees with only a dozen small papayas, his trees produced 60 to 100 giant papayas.
In Antonio’s area, the papaya season normally runs from January to May or June. In November, 2008, Antonio’s friend, Pedro, visited our plant. Pedro advised that Antonio was still harvesting and selling papayas in November. He ships them to Los Angeles labeled “Pesticide Free.” Antonio’s income from 25 BioWashed acres is estimated around $1,000,000.
Antonio hired 20 additional men to help harvest his produce, thus reducing the need for those men to look in the U.S. for employment.
In farmlands southwest of Guadalajara, tomato growers had unsuccessfully attempted to protect their crops from insects by growing them inside greenhouses. They achieved success with BioWash.
Farmers who BioWash perennials such as squash and tomatoes extend their productive season. Dr. Rico’s brother grows backyard tomatoes. His vines continued producing tomatoes for 12 weeks rather than the usual six weeks. He discovered that BioWashed tomatoes remain edible up to six weeks after harvesting.
A squash grower increases and extends his “Pesticide Free” squash harvest.
Here is a farmer BioWashing a squash vine and…
and a large, pesticide free squash.
I have sent an entire report with contacts and a slide show link to our Ecuador Living subscribers. You can subscribe and receive this report here.
My most current idea is to test Ted’s Stuff on our citrus. Texas A & M University recently tested Ted’s Stuff as a possible solution to the Citrus Greening problem. Bio-Green Clean proved more effective than the highly toxic Bayer chemicals.
The Texas A&M results are being prepared for submittal to the EPA. The EPA will require additional testing.
Ted is looking for citrus growers who would like to test Bio-Green Clean in their groves and I’ll be looking at this for sure because as mentioned above our groves here in Florida fight inflation.
The groves lead down to the lake and…
we have some lemons as well…
They are big ones but I would like to try to make them bigger, juicer, healthier at a lower cost.
Yet here is an even newer idea. Test Ted’s Stuff to enhance nonfood biofuel crops.
Yesterday’s message Ecuador Imports looked at Jatropha or Camelina as crops that produce drop-in replacement biofuels and gave excerpts from articles about how KLM and Air New Zeland are testing these fuels now. One of the articles said: “This (drop in biofuels) is technically feasible. We have demonstrated that it is possible,” Peter Hartman, KLM’s president and CEO, said in a statement today. “Government, industry and society at large must now join forces to ensure that we quickly gain access to a continuous supply of biofuel.”
UOP says its renewable jet fuel can be used as a drop-in replacement requiring no changes to the aircraft technology when used up to a 50 percent blend. The fuel meets critical flight specifications, including freeze and flash points.
Jennifer Holmgren, vice president and general manager of UOP’s renewable energy and chemicals business, said data from the KLM test flight would be incorporated into a report by a coalition of airlines, aircraft manufacturers and related companies to certify renewable jet fuel for use in commercial flights.
The coalition should submit its report to the international standards board that certifies fuels and chemicals within the next few weeks, Holmgren said. Full certification could be granted about next year.
Here is the idea. Combine three thoughts. Ted’s Stuff… nonfood biofuel and low cost Ecuadorian agricultural land… less restricted by numerous federal regulations…with rich soil, 365 days a year of direct sun and low cost labor. This is a new opportunity that could produce excellent profits.
Ted Tidwell, the owner of the company that produces Ted’s Stuff is kindly providing me with a free supply to test such ideas and I’ll keep you informed.
If this idea appeals to you, contact Ted Tidwell at firstname.lastname@example.org
Even better, meet with me and Ted at our groves this February. Ted will speak about importing Ted’s Stuff to Ecuador… or anywhere and his experiences. He will outline its many uses at our February 11-14 course in Mt. Dora, Florida.

Until then Merri and I send our best wishes to you for happy… peaceful…. low stress holidays. We’ll be here at this site sharing ideas with you every day including Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Join us on Ecuador’s coast this winter. Attend our seminars and tours in Florida and Ecuador. See the best Ecuador property for you. Find the best real estate offers. Know more of Ecuador. To help you experience a bigger adventure in this wonderful nation, to broaden your horizons, to expand your awareness of all Ecuador offers, we are providing deep discounts in 2010 for those who sign up for multiple tours.
We just added four South coast Ecuador tours that can help you gain extra savings with a multi tour pack.
These extra tours create a dilemma for me. See how below.
These four new south coast tours and our six pack tour price create a bit of a crisis here.
As you can see above a six pack costs $3,099. This is already a really low price for a tour that last up to 21 days (under $150 a day).
But as you will see below, our International Club membership which allows you and a guest to attend up to 56 courses and tours in 2010 (fees would be $40,947 for all these courses individually) is only $2,999.
Which would you choose… 6 courses and tours for $3,099 or those same 6 courses and tours plus 50 more for $2,999?
“Duh,” I said when this was pointed out to me.
So our only solution is to raise the International Club membership to $3,500… still a terrific deal… but $501 more than before.
Save $37,457…plus $501. I will not raise the International club fee until January 2010. Enroll in the International Club now at the original fee of $2,999.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.
First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.
Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.
As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.
Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.
Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.
Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses. They can also act as your local backup for the business.
Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.
We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO! You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you.
