Bio Wash Update

by | Oct 29, 2010 | Archives

Bio Wash is creating income in many ways and now is in Ecuador.

Bio Wash is now available in Ecuador from a farmer importing it to Ecuador who wrote:  As all monocultures have different diseases that kill and decrease productivity, cocoa always has suffered from attacks of fungi and insects that have finished complete, plantations despite efforts farmers and technicians have done to try to at least reduce the damage caused by different pests.   We have named Bio Wash “Vitalimp AX” in Ecuador and it is now available to give vitality to the plants, increasing its foliage and combating pests and diseases, cocoa producers now can increase their production not only in quantity but in quality by using an organic product with non toxics, friendly with people and the environment.  Cocoa harvested using Vitalimp AX in plantations may be marketed as organic and free of pesticides and poisons.


In the farm, The Black Valley, owned by Antonio Holguín, located in Monterrey, La Concordia, has been detected on 5 hectares of cocoa plantation variety CCN 51 the presence of the fungus Monilia (Moniliophthora)  that had infested the plantation causing huge losses and expenses with the use of a number of toxic fungicides without any result. Also was detected the presence of Red Spiders  (Tetranychus urticae ) that are really mites that nest in a kind of spider net.


Here you can see the cocoa ears affected by the Monilia fungus, it dries and damages completely to the cocoa producing huge losses.

I have added Bio Wash to our funky micro business idea hall of fame… a product that brings green to the environment and green into your finances as well.

For decades we have raved about (and used) the organic bio degradable cleaner manufactured by Ted Tidwell and 1st Envirosafety.

This product is useful in so many ways, but also offers a great deal of income opportunity.

We have used this product as a cleaner, fertilizer, food wash and insecticide to name a few… though I hasten to add that Ted does not offer or sell it as all these things.

You can see links to dozens of success stories and numerous readers have gained added income selling and or using this product. For example one of our neighbors in North Carolina, an arborist, has created an entire business saving hemlocks trees from the Wooly Adelgid blight.

This professional, Ryan Franks wrote:  Gary, We are so grateful that our paths crossed and I would be glad to help share the story with others.  We’ve saved thousands  of hemlocks and have done so without having to spray potentially harmful chemicals.  This has been a win/win/win/win….situation for all involved!  Ryan

Ted now offers this cleaner in the name of Purely Green and Bio Wash (Bio Wash has some added ingredients that encourage plant growth).

Ted Tidwell sent me this note:  Gary, Many Gary Scott subscribers have wanted to purchase BioWash and PurelyGreen in Ecuador but the cost of small shipments was prohibitive.

Fortunately a large Equadorian farmer/businessman recently purchased BioWash and PurelyGreen for testing.  His tests are complete and the message below was just received from him.

He plans to import in economical bulk, use it on his plantations and also make BioWash and PurelyGreen  available in smaller quantities. Possibly, he will place it in supermarkets. Ted

That Ecuadorian farmer sent this note to Ted: “Sr. Ted In this moment we are waiting that the new company Biowash Ecuador to begin to work. We will send a new order in the next days. We have touched all the persons you submitted, thanks for it.

In the meantime we have made some tests in cocoa plants, as you should know, cocoa is one of the basic crops we have in Ecuador, and there is more than 250,000 hectares in production.

We tested Biowash in a friend’s farm. Of course you know that Vitalimp is our brand for Biowash.  We will make some photos and we made a brochure to show what we have seen. We are attaching with this email. Be sure we are taking all the necessary steps to reach to our goal to distribute Biowash in Ecuador in the best way possible.

Read the Ecuador farmer’s brochure with photos of the cocoa treated and not.

See below other notes sent to Ted Tidwell on how people are earning income globally.

Ted, This is a green pepper.  Two on left were treated several times with 1-600 Bio-Wash.  Big difference!


Another Bio Wash user wrote:

Ted, the plant (below) on the left is untreated.

We are researching the reason that BioWash appears to help plants develop a natural immunity to disease.

The possibilities of eliminating the need for toxic pesticides is exciting!


Another Bio Wash user sent this shot:

Ted, Ten days earlier, both bushes were equal. The bush on the right was BioWashed.


Merri and I  sprayed our orange groves with biowash last spring.


We have just arrived in Florida and will speak with our grove manager shortly. We expect to see good results.

Hopefully, we will see that we had and have:

1. Increased numbers of blooms.
2. Better retention of blooms during drought and high winds.
3. More oranges.
4. Better retention of oranges during the above.
5. Sweeter oranges. (Higher BRIX)
6. Faster growth of trees.
7. Earlier maturity of oranges, thus premium prices.
8. Increased resistance to cold temperatures, down to 27 F.
9. Increased disease resistance.

Another businessman growing blueberries wrote:

Hi Ted – I want to update you briefly on the blueberries this year. I’ve been using BioWash in my drip system at a rate that is slightly less than the rate below. I drip feed 1800 plants twice per week in a regular nutrient regimen. After fruit set, I’ve used the biowash in my foliar spraying as well which I conduct about every 10 days.

The berries this year are outstanding and much larger than last year…as you can see from the attached flyer we are producing blueberries the size of a nickel…and not just a few here and there, but clumps of them. Our customers are amazed and the word is getting out about how incredible our berries are grown right here in SE Kansas.

Best regards –
Lance Chastain
Chautauqua Hills Farm
“Home of the nickel-size blueberries”

Another farmer sent preliminary results using Bio Wash on a commercial strawberry patch.

We sprayed a mix of the 25% diluted at one ounce to the gallon.  We sprayed 5 gallons on two long rows.  We left the adjacent two rows unsprayed.  The first spraying was on Sept 23 and the second spraying was on Oct 3.  I returned on Oct 11 and could see a definite difference between the sprayed and the unsprayed.  The sprayed plants were stronger looking and a bit larger and fruit was coming a bit more on the sprayed plants compared to the unsprayed 2 rows.  We are expecting red fruit in about a week and I will let you know the results.

Here is a peppers and greens farmer, Roger Pope, who grows and supplies upscale restaurants with “Pesticide Free” salad greens as a home-based business who wrote:

Bell peppers

These are seedlings in my herb house on the right that were soaked in Bio Wash and the left side was not soaked before planting.

He also ships to individuals who are seeking healthier food.

He advises the shelf life is 45 days!!!

Roger also BioWashes his citrus tree seeds. They grow stonger, sturdier and mature twice as fast, producing fruit within six months!!!

Here is another example of this product’s versatility to create income and help the environment. Purely Green is being used to help clean up the Gulf Oil spill mess. One businessman has branded the product as evolve and his website says:

Evolve® is an incredibly powerful, yet amazingly safe, next generation all-natural cleaning technology which is substantially more powerful than chemical-based solvents, soaps, degreasers, and disperants and is able to remediate crude oil and other toxic materials from the environment safely and quickly.

There are many ways… in the USA or abroad to use this funky idea of Biowash and Purely Green to bring more green into your finances as well as life.


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.

gary scott

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 places I have lived.   Anywhere I am,  I am  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 a laptop business.

Another benefit is income.   Writing has brought me both our farms in Florida and North carolina, 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  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

Hugh and I playing chess (he beats me badly).

Writers like Hugh 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 on how to expand the profits of what you write called “Eventful Business” (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. 

Whatever your passion, however you do business, chances are you’ll be writing either to create a product or to sell a product.
