Little Things – Big Problems – Huge Opportunities

by | Oct 22, 2011 | Content Updates

Little buttons are small things… those tiny bits that are so hard to hit with big thumbs.  Drives me crazy the thought of texting.  I want big buttons for my stumbling thumbs!  Help may be on the way… a clue for micro business and multi currency opportunities.

A recent article at   entitled “Kinect Turns Any Surface Into a Touch Screen” says:  Researchers combine a Kinect sensor with a pico projector to expand the possibilities for interactive screens.

A new prototype can transform a notebook into a notebook computer, a wall into an interactive display, and the palm of your hand into a smart phone display. In fact, researchers at Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University say their new shoulder-mounted device, called OmniTouch, can turn any nearby surface into an ad hoc interactive touch screen.

This is the type of venture risk that makes sense.

Because we have to stay on top of change and learn how to manage risk better, Merri and I have added a new micro business/multi currency seminar so we can share an entire year’s risk management thinking with you.

For 2012, we have now scheduled our October 5-7,  International Investing & Business Made EZ seminar in  Jefferson, North Carolina where we will look at micro business and investing ideas in water, Ecuador, smalltown USA and agriculture as well as multi currency investment around the world.  The most exciting news though is that we have also scheduled two exclusive “Think Thank” meetings (one at our home in Florida and one at our Blue Ridge house) for club members only.

Belong to the International Club so we can spend a year with you.  There are many benefits to club membership for 2012.

Yet there is more.

The International Club brings together experienced, like minded souls, who take a positive view and think outside the constructive thoughtful ways.

Merri and I are in our 43rd year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and quantum lifestyles. The importance of this sharing…by like minded souls…was reinforced when a delegate from a course sent an email that said:

My Dearest Merri and Gary, Thank you for your most gracious hospitality last weekend. I am just thrilled at being a part of your group. You and Gary were exactly as I imagined you to be, warm friendly, kind, considerate, genuine, helpful, fun, sincere, what else can I say……I felt so comfortable in your presence and learned so much in your course. I was sad to leave the farm that Sunday afternoon. You made us all feel so welcome and cared about. You were so kind to make arrangements for a ride with the other delegates from the Charlotte airport. They were so nice to me and so helpful, by the time the weekend was over I felt like they were my long lost brothers. Monday morning we all had breakfast at the airport together and I was so sad to see them go, I was sad the weekend was over, perhaps sad is not the right word for how I was feeling perhaps Gratitude is a better way to describe it. Grateful for having the opportunity to share the weekend with such wonderful, like minded Human Beings, in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Merri and Gary.

Thanks to you I now have new hope and a new direction to move forward in my life.

I know by attending your classes and conferences that through education and due diligence I will make the right choices.

This delegate’s comments about “belonging and feeling like a brother” to the other delegates is a wonderful refrain we have heard from our readers, year after year.

21 years ago Merri and I created a way that readers can join us to be immersed in a year-long learning program through our International Club.

The ideas behind this program began all those years ago in Vienna, Austria while we were conducting a course there. One of our older delegates, had some sort of attack. The first fear was heart trouble. Several delegates took him to the hospital. Others stayed with him there. I don’t think that delegate was alone for a minute!

What impressed Merri and me was that no one asked the delegates to help this man.

The friendships of delegates sharing many courses had just grown so strong that it was a natural reaction, just as if a family member was ill. Fortunately, it was only travel fatigue and the delegate didn’t miss a session of the course!

When you join our International Club 2011 – 2012 you become part of a special family. The very first member to join the club all those years ago wrote, Thank you for the enjoyable and informative courses. I am pleased to be part of your international family and look forward to continuing my education at the next course.

His feeling struck a familiar chord. It has always been one of my greatest satisfactions to see how much fun delegates have getting together, sharing information and making friendships.

These courses somehow draw together like-minded souls. For this reason some delegates come back again and again. They come to learn, but also to be with their many friends made at the courses. When like-minded souls get together again and again to discuss a common purpose, magic happens! I can’t explain it in any other way-but it is true.

In a way our meetings are almost like family reunions. Perhaps it is getting together and reflecting on what has been said and what has been happening.

Learning with those who are also interested in the world creates thoughts that multiply the value of what we gain. This is hard to describe but results are most powerful and wonderful! This is to me is as important as the great financial benefit of attending many of our courses.

See our 2011 – 2012 schedule below.

We started and have continued this program for 21 years because there are wonderful benefits from having repeat delegates at courses. Having repeat delegates makes the whole course somehow more exciting for all. Being a repeat delegate makes it easier to make and keep wealth and to lock in the knowledge you gain. It’s an exciting lifestyle. We have fun, gain adventure, discovery and friendships and share ways to improve our health and wealth!

Normally we only accept membership at the end of each year… but due to the unusual risk we see now, we added this new option to club membership that entitles you to the last course in 2011 and all of 2012…in the cool Blue Ridge of North Carolina and  in Historic Old Florida.

The next saving is Seminars via MP3 (or disc) you receive FREE as a club member.  I record an update at each seminar and club members receive this.

You’ll see a very busy schedule below.  Very few club members actually attend every course and tour…but certainly some attend almost all of them!

If you attend even a few of the courses, you gain considerable savings… PLUS we record the investing and business seminars so you can have the course downloaded on your computer to listen on MP3 or on disc when you cannot attend in person.

This means that you stay in touch with all the business and investing ideas we develop at each of the investing and business seminars you cannot attend.

Here are the courses and tours where your seminar or tour fee is waived.

November 3-6, 2011  Learn Spanish in 4 Days, Mt. Dora, Florida  ($999)
January 12-15, 2012  Super Thinking + Spanish, Mt. Dora, Florida ($999)

Feb. 10-11, 2012  International Investing & Business Made EZ.  Mt. Dora, FL ($999)

March 8-11, 2012  Super Thinking + Spanish, Mt. Dora, Florida ($999)

June 22-24, 2012 International Investing & Business Made EZ.  North Carolina ($999)

There is another big saving:  $1,265 more!

When you join the club, I’ll email you our online course “International Business Made EZ”, a $299 value, plus four bonuses.  You receive the bonus course “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher”  which also has a $299 value.

Plus I email you the online course “Tangled Web – How to Have Your Own Web Based Business” another $299 value plus “Event – Full Business – How to Earn With a Seminar Business” a $349 value.

In addition you’ll receive the 52 lesson course on how to create your own website using sitesell and finally I include an internet video on how to set up a website presented by our webmaster David Cross.

These courses are valued at $1,265…  in addition to all the seminars above you can attend.

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 we give all course delegates our very best, we 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 us to help you find 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, become friends and gain more wealth.

The fourth savings: Lifestyle for Two.

There is still more!

We have learned at our 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. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year?

We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

The International Club fee is $1,799 barely the price of  two seminars.Take for example if you plan to attend our Super Thinking + Spanish, $999 for a couple and a couple for International Investing and Business program, the normal cost would be $999 or $1,98.   International Club members attending just these two programs would already save… plus could attend all the other  Florida and North Carolina seminars plus receive $1,265 worth of emailed courses.

Exclusive “Think Tanks”

Twice a year club members meet for an exclusive members only Think Tank to look at ideas and answer multi currency and micro business questions that members may have.


I invite you to be a member of the International Club which allows you and your guest of your choice to attend all of these courses and tours.

Here is one final benefit. When you enroll… we automatically lock in this low fee for next year so your savings are automatically renewed in 2012 and 2013 at a discounted continued membership fee of $1,799.  Of course if you choose not to renew,  just simply cancel membership at no cost.

Let’s prosper in these times of change.  Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!
