This is a perfect era to increase your wealth and improve your lifestyle as you reduce stress with investments in the ideas below or your own a micro internet business.
Merri and I enjoy having an international internet business and it is doing well. This May (2010) was the best May we have had yet in our 12 years of having an internet business. Almost every month we see list and sales growth over the month of a year before.
We are very proud and thankful to be one of the most read sites in Ecuador and do well in the US and Canada too. May we share our experiences to help you learn how to enjoy this satisfaction and success though international investments or micro business?
This recent ranking from Alexa.com shows how our site is in the top 16,000 web sites in America, top 8,000 in Canada and top 500 in Ecuador. There is more… as you’ll see in pictures below how the recent recession has caused our internet business to grow. So you can do the same… with a micro business or investing in the same ideas that earn more as others seem to earn less.
Our sales doubled during the recession and our list of readers increased over 100%. Since the economy picked up our business growth has slowed but business is still growing. This is how good value oriented business grow by the way.
Good value oriented micro businesses increase steadily in good times. They do not get caught in euphoria. Then during bad times they can really do quite well!
Knowing the philosophies that we follow to prosper from change can help you invest better and can help you create an internet success if you desire.
The Western economy has changed… probably forever. The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.
The economy will recover… in numbers yes… but the way people earn and work… and how the money is distributed and to whom especially… has been profoundly altered. This is especially true in value added countries like Canada… the USA and most of Europe.
Excerpts from a recent New York Times article entitled “After Escaping Jobless Rolls, Trauma May Linger” by Michael Luo helps explain why:
RALEIGH, N.C. — Antje Newby went back to work in September, but she has still not escaped the burden imposed by nine months of unemployment.
Antje Newby, working again, said, “We’ve got financial impact we’re going to deal with forever.”
Tom Newby stays home in part to help his children adjust to their move from in the Detroit area.
Mrs. Newby and her husband were forced to walk away from their home in suburban Detroit and are now living here in a rented house with their three children. They are bracing for a huge tax bill in the spring because of early withdrawals they made on her 401(k) and taxes they still owe on unemployment benefits. Their credit is in tatters, and their 16-year marriage showed cracks they are still trying to repair.
The wound of unemployment, as her family has learned, is not cauterized so quickly, and lives do not simply go back to the way they were.
Interviews with more than a dozen people who were out of work at least a half-year during the recession and have now landed jobs found many adjusting to new realities. Some of the changes are self-imposed; others forced upon them. They include grappling with newfound insecurities and scaled-back budgets; reshaped priorities and broken relationships. In some ways, it is equivalent to the lingering symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
One person interviewed said, “If the rug is pulled out again, I’m not going to survive”.
Another said “We’ve got financial impact we’re going to deal with forever.”
Many of the old rules of employment have been turned upside down. For example in the past people worked for the government for job security but expected lower pay. Now, according to the Cato Institute this has completely flipped and the reversal is growing:
The Bureau of Economic Analysis has released its annual data on compensation levels by industry (Tables 6.2D, 6.3D, and 6.6D here). The data show that the pay advantage enjoyed by federal civilian workers over private-sector workers continues to expand.
The George W. Bush years were very lucrative for federal workers. In 2000, the average compensation (wages and benefits) of federal workers was 66 percent higher than the average compensation in the U.S. private sector. The new data show that average federal compensation is now more than double the average in the private sector.
Yet at the same time there has never been a better time… with greater opportunity, for certain types of investments or an internet business… if… we can choose a business that flourishes with change.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in society and in the way we work because technology brings us low cost administration, low cost access to data, low cost communication, and low cost travel, plus the opening of markets beyond logic that rely more on passion and experience than on efficiency and cost.
We’ll look at these economic and structural changes, and what to do about them in the international investing and business portion of our Quantum Wealth Seminar we conducted in West Jefferson North Carolina this June 24 to 27.
We’ll see how markets are shifting from materialistic needs to emotional needs.
We’ll see great opportunity for investors and micro businesses in the following markets:
Love-friendship-control-freedom-tradition-change-big answers-recognition and care. These are emotional needs that create expanding demand and business opportunity. The next generation is having more involvement in every step of the buying process. Uniting the body and mind is an emerging market. Natural physical health, fitness will expand but botox and insulin sales will also grow.
Mental health, retreats and spas prosper. The health of the planet is becoming a more important business.
There is a shift of emphasis from GDP to GWB (General Wellness Barometer Happiness Factor)
Business will operate with more passion.
We’ll see how to turn these shifts into new opportunities for investment and internet business in seven areas.
Water and Alternate Energy
Truth & Cohesion
Ecuador and Smalltown USA Real Estate
I call these seven areas the Magnificent Seven… these are the places where I am looking for opportunity and focusing our efforts now.
