This phrase can help you grow richer, feel better and be healthier… beginning right now.
Here I am working at home trying to explain the importance of this phrase “Go try things”… which sums up why you not only can but should gain the benefits of an international business.
Perhaps the importance of what should be shared began in Hong Kong about 44 years ago.
A warm South China Sea fog swept up the mid levels like a spider’s web in fast air. …then hung like a moist blanket over the thin ribbon of asphalt that snaked the ridgeline through the jungle ahead. Low city rumbles blunted the green tropical freshness and fought nature’s cacophony of dawn.
Bowen Road runs flat as a pancake through the mid-levels of Hong Kong. I lived there for several years decades ago and took early morning runs most days. Arriving shortly after my 21st birthday, my task was to build a sales team that sold American mutual funds to the Hong Kong Chinese. That turned out to be a bad idea. The Hong Kong market was booming and the US stock market dead. Yet just trying this, led me into the business of writing about how Americans could invest in Hong Kong. Many of my readers made fortunes and for me, a career was born.
A decade later after a move to London… distortions were spotted in the cost of Manx corporations. This led me shortly to the Isle of Man… overlooking Douglas Bay… a brisk ocean air off the harbor carried mournful seagull songs into our room at the Palace Hotel. I was looking for cheap corporations but found a real estate treasure instead. Years of real estate tours helped readers start businesses there and they picked up unimaginable profits… because we tried some new things.
However Britain’s gray winters soon drove me to the sun. I found myself watching sun rays sparkle on the emerald prisms of cool, spring fed pools. They reflected and danced, rainbows that glimmered on towering mahogany, banana, stately palm. Green vistas shimmered, easy paced in the afternoon sun and sweet, tropical perfumes floated in the breeze.
Merri, and I were sitting on a huge veranda, overlooking a vast expanse of lush, green, countryside watching our kids joyfully ride their horses up the mountains in the Dominican Republic. A tropical breeze flowed over the porch cooling the sunny afternoon. My portable laptop computer sat before me. Working, I had dozed off, lulled by katydid songs, the soft breeze and my lost thoughts. That was work and the sudden realization of how wonderful that work was shocked me into understanding that having an international business is the best way to security, wealth, freedom and fulfillment in life. That realization was the foundation of our seminars on how to have a micro business and that trip came because we were searching for new places and trying new things.
Since then thousands have attended or taken the correspondence version of this course all over the world. In the process of trying to find new places, 15 years ago we stumbled onto Ecuador… the best yet.
Our business has evolved over 44 years from Hong Kong to London to Europe to the Isle of Man to the Dominican Republic to Florida to North Carolina to Ecuador. Each time because we were trying things of interest and fascination to us. Not once did the business turn out how we expected… but always there was some success… happy customers…. good deeds…. great service… profit… fulfillment and adventure all originating from just trying some things.
Delegates to our seminars have improved their lives, gained greater independence, increased financial safety and dramatically gained more freedom to lead the type of life they desire…all because these delegates after our courses “go try things“.
So I sat straight up and started writing yesterday morning after sitting round the pool and reading the January 2012 USA Today article entitled “THEY WON’T QUIT” by Janice Lloyd which summed up the vast importance of trying and the benefits you can gain when you “go try things”.
The article is as follows (Bolds and underlines are mine): Experts say Baby Boomers are starting to work past conventional retirement age, a trend fueled by an uncertain economy, improved health in older life and an understanding that staying engaged leads to a better sense of well-being.
Hitting 65 and “getting the gold watch” is not on the must-do list anymore for many people, says Jacquelyn James, research director at the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College.
“Their emphasis isn’t just to keep working but to do things that add life to years and not years to life,” James says. “People who are very work-oriented and love their jobs don’t want to give them up, especially if they’re healthy.”
An April Gallup survey had similar findings: 534 working people were asked whether, when they reached retirement age, “you think you will continue working and work full-time; continue working and work part-time; or stop working altogether?” Those who answered that they would continue to work were then asked, “Would you do it because you want to, or because you will have to?”
•18% said they would work full-time, and a third of those said it was because they wanted to, not because they would have to.
•63% said they would work part-time; almost two-thirds of those said they would do it because they wanted to.
•18% said they would retire and stop working altogether.
The average age of retirement is 64 for men and 62 for women, according to an analysis of Census data by the Center for Retirement Research. Census data also show the number of Americans living to age 90 and beyond has tripled in the past three decades to almost 2 million and is likely to quadruple by 2050.
“People are beginning to realize that if you retire at age 60, you could easily spend 35 years in retirement,” says Richard Johnson, senior fellow and director of the program on retirement policy at the Urban Institute. “And that could get tedious.”
There are other reasons to stick it out. Job satisfaction grows with age, Johnson says: 90% of workers age 60 to 64 agree or strongly agree that they enjoy going to work, compared with 95% of workers 65 to 69 and 97% of workers age 70 and older, according to the Retirement Project of the Urban Institute.
Stress levels also drop on the job. About one of three workers age 70 and older agree or strongly agree their jobs involve a lot of stress, compared with more than half of workers age 60 to 64.
“There isn’t a script for 65 anymore. We recommend the same thing we tell people in their 20s: ‘Go try things.'”
This is why we would like to help you make your life better with a funky micro business and why we have expanded this focus in our business seminars.
The USA Today article goes on to point out: “People are being given rotten advice to slow down, take it easy, stop worrying and retire,” Friedman says. “The Longevity Project discovered that those who worked the hardest lived the longest — the responsible and successful achievers thrived in every way, especially if they were dedicated to things and people beyond themselves.
Learn how to create and enjoy your own funky micro business. You can gain “earning flexibility” so you can earn… mobile or not… full or part time… young or old. We have many boomers take our courses on how to write to sell. Other participants are in their 20s and 30s and want to get started while avoiding the rat race. Others in their 40s and 50s are looking for ways out of the rat race.
Technology and economically speaking, you have a a perfect time now to have your own micro business. Communications and computers do most of the work that previously required labor and staff. Outsourcing and virtual offices, plus internet marketing mean a one man (or woman or couple) show can accomplish incredible things.

The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in politics and 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 look at these economic and structural changes, and what to do about them in the international investing and business portion of our seminar.
