Writer’s Camps & Spanish Combined

by | Feb 5, 2013 | Archives

The weather was prefect for our seminar this last weekend in Central  Florida … clear skies, mid 70s temperature and glorious sunsets on the lake.


A sunset during the seminar.

Super Thinking courses always begin with a wave of quantum excitement… a room seemingly empty… scalar energy… pure potentiality.  The delegates begin to arrive… bringing the vector energy in.


They chart… meet… share and the potential becomes real in our time and space.


At 9am… the room has warmed, friendships begin… the seats fill and…


I get down to it… sharing In – formation.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday March 15,16,17, 2013. Mt. Dora, Florida

Do not delay our summer and autumn camps sold out almost immediately and due to the small numbers we accept we must accept enrollments on a first come – first served basis.

If you want to become a better writers, those who sell their own work or own your own publishing business (small or large) or want to build your existing business through publishing you should sign up for this camp.

Our Writer’s Camps combine the knowledge and experience that Merri and I have gained through years and years of hard work and research. We developed a wonderful business opportunity. While developing this opportunity, we created a system that works well for us, has worked exceedingly well for others and may work for you. This letter outlines a course that teaches this system so you can decide if it may bring you more wealth, health and fulfillment.

When you join the Writer’s Camp you are enrolling in a program for the entire year… all for the price of attending the camp!  You get our online self publishing course free so you can start immediately and develop your creation before the camp.  Then we continue working with you after the camp throughout the year.

The Writer’s Camp shares seven secrets that have helped readers write and write for profit so they can start their own self sufficient businesses at home. In the past 20 years we have conducted this course and shared this information with tens of thousands.

This course teaches how to unite all types of writing as well as publishing and seminars.

The valuable lesson you learn in the course is how to use information to motivate. This puts the world at your fingertips because the information industry has become one-half of our gross national product…making writing and publishing the ULTIMATE business.

Being a writer and/or publisher means you start at the top and work with the things that YOU find interesting. People love you when you write about them, countries love you, businesses love you! And guess what? Not one person cares about whether you are educated, young or old, your gender or your race!

Plus as a writer and/or publisher you bring in the type of financial returns that even your banker is jealous about.  In our publishing and seminar efforts, one investment returned 660% in a month, another 835%.  But more importantly we also share how to easily gain the most important things in life-freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction…with very small amounts of money and time. You can learn here how to make a positive difference in the world through your own creative writing, publishing and/or seminar business.

First, let me tell how I searched for this elusive opportunity for twenty years… how I looked for a way to gain incredible, outlandish, unbelievable profit potential. Then I’ll explain how I finally found it and why after years of proof, can now share it with you and why the fulfillment gained has become even more important than the cash.

The opportunity I sought had to be so enormously profitable that 150%, 200%, even 1,000% return in a year was possible. But this Crown Jewel of Opportunities also had to be as safe as any investment could be.

This opportunity had to work in good and bad times and be flexible.

These were not the only standards I set for my quest. I not only wanted to find unbelievable profit and high safety but also wanted this incredible investment to offer the ultimate tax shelter, something so perfect it would not even be a little bit questionable with the tax man.

It had to be so foolproof that Congress would never change it. I wanted it to be so good that it would be encouraged by the government!

Most important this business had to make a positive difference.

Humanity is at a crossroads created by the 300 year long social experiment called the industrial revolution. This trial in materialism has led to huge imbalances. Today we have more war, a failing environment, tragic erosion in human rights, pitiful global health and blinkered education. These imbalances put our entire existence in peril. Yet man’s experiences in acquisitiveness has also awakened society to the fact that there is a better, more balanced way of life. This creates a struggle between unbounded physical excess and a balanced more fulfilling way. A healthier life can evolve if the rich Western nations are naturally awakened.  We wanted our business to be of some help in this path.

I feared deep down inside that what I wanted was impossible, but nevertheless, I scoured the world for over twenty years looking for it. I looked in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. But I didn’t find it in Asia. I went to the Middle East and roamed all over Europe. I hardly missed a country. After twenty years and millions of miles, I guess I gave up. Only then (as these things so often happen) was it that I found the best opportunity in the world. This opportunity was not only perfect but was sitting in my own back yard. I had been using it all the time, it required very little money, could grow as fast as I wanted, offered freedom, enjoyment and allow me to live wherever I choose and allowed me to share positive life creating information!

In this quest I never found any investment good enough to be fool proof under every sort of circumstance. None contained the ultimate instrument of survival-flexibility. In frustration, I changed my search. Instead of looking just at investments, I looked at the rich, how they made and kept wealth. Most millionaires it turns out made their money in business. I changed my quest and started looking at rich businesses. Here are five of seven secrets I learned:

Secret #1

The business must enjoy the multiple effect. A product once created must produce profits again and again, almost on a never-ending basis. Each investment made needs to make huge returns.

Secret #2

The business needs to be more than its owner. It must produce income even when the owner doesn’t put in day-to-day effort. You may already be wealthy or earning a high income. You may not even need another business or extra income, but some day you might. One surgeon explained it this way. “I am making a fortune because peoples’ lives are in my hands. Once my hands are no longer steady, my income stops. My entire financial well being will then be in someone else’s hands!”

Secret #3

The money making system must be enjoyable and fun! Sad but true, most of us make money for the sake of making money. Many spend their lives working, just to have a few precious hours having fun. The most important fact I learned about making and keeping wealth was that those who were richest absolutely loved what they were doing! Money was of secondary importance to their effort. And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more money!

Secret #4

The money making system must be flexible. No matter what the economy brings, your ability to make money should work regardless of inflation, recession or even depression.

Secret #5

The business must be able to start small, but grow as much as I desire.  I learned that good money systems work for large or for small amounts and can be operated on either a full or part time basis. Most businesses start with a learning curve.  During that time it is essential they are small.  Once the lessons have been learned and the system is operating properly, then it needs to grow for larger and larger returns.

Understanding these secrets, I realized a fantastic way to make money was my own business, writing and publishing! Almost anyone can make a fortune in this field. These activities are ideal for making money.  They fit all five secrets above. You can make a fortune in writing,  or in publishing even if you never write.

Publishing is not writing! Publishing is the business that makes money from writing. You may have read or heard about the great wealth good writers can make. Guess what? Writers make that money from a royalty paid to them by a publisher. The royalty is normally 15% of the book’s sales. Guess who makes the other 85%? Guess whose decisions make or break the fortunes of the writer? The publisher!

It is true that some writers, like myself also publish. That’s why our program is the Writer’s Camp.

Modern technology makes publishing really easy so writers can also publish, or just write, or both!

Writing and publishing can be outrageously profitable. It is possible to make money month after month….writing and/of publishing.

More important, I have fun every day! I’m doing what I love and have learned that through publishing I can service to my community. In short I can help make myself and accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfillment and be of the world a better place.

What do you love? Rare cars?  Publishing information on them. Do you prefer fine art? Or do you love beautiful jewelry, coins, gems, real estate, furs, model railways, dolls, scientific equipment, war memorabilia, old and rare books, or whatever? Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make money writing on any subject that you love?

However if you prefer social subjects rather than objects I have something special to now share. Are you concerned with the environment problems, with crimes, war, poverty? Would you like to help wipe them out? Each of these offers opportunity in writing and publishing. Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place, help people get along better together? You can do something good for the world, increase your income in the process and live wherever you please! Whatever your passion learn how you can make a fortune by writing, creating and publishing information.

Publishing can even be international if you love to travel. Publishers reap rich rewards selling information on their own country in others and vice versa. While everyone is talking about helping our country by buying U.S., publishers are in a position to do something about it…by selling U.S. knowledge abroad!

A perfect example can be seen in the way I sell information to Canadians, Japanese, Chinese, British, Australian, European, Russian buyers which attracts money to the U.S., rather than vice versa.

Imagine what an international publishing business means to your world travel. Every trip you take can be tax deductible! You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business. Every journey becomes a research oriented adventure and it can be a tax deductible event.

As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country. America needs to do business abroad, and our government has created many, many programs to encourage Americans to do business overseas. Many of those benefits come in the form of reduced tax! Other benefits come in the form of legal protection. Publishers are protected by the U.S. constitution. You do not need a license to publish. There is no government watchdog nor do you have bureaucratic red tape involved in publishing.

I created an entire system to help my readers to use writing to help any business they have or even create their own publishing business.

This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique. We started our publishing business together. Since we’re almost recluses, we decided to do the whole business by ourselves. We began working at home. Today, though we have tens of thousands of buyers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person. Now because of this unique program you can do the same.

All this and more will be taught in the Writer’s Camp.

This Camp answers your questions and gets you started and can put you well on your way to writing and freedom to live wherever you choose! It covers the five secrets I mentioned above.  Now the course is even better because of several new secrets.

Since I began conducting this course I have started my own internet publishing business so now I have added to the course how to easily publish your writing online.  Self publishing by the writer is the key to unlocking the new success for writers!  We will work on how to sell your writing, how to publish yourself online and to do so at no cost whatsoever.

This course is not theoretical.

Our first weekend publishing course was conducted almost two decades ago. The fee was $2,000 (As I explained below the fee is now much less so you can save $1,501 now). Merri and I were delighted that 87 delegates signed up, paid and attended. They came from all over-young couples working for an income, publishers, chiropractors, doctors, dentists, businessmen, investors, real estate brokers, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, millionaires and housewives. People from all walks of life.

There were many couples as well because Merri and I run our business together and encourage couples to attend. Since that time the course has been an outstanding success and the raves from delegates you will read below show how satisfied delegates have been. For example, one delegate, a publisher from California said, “Your publishing course is outstanding! Just two hours of study on Sunday alone were worth more than the $2,000 price.”

An engineer from Ohio wrote, “Basically, I learned how to be a publisher, especially the selling and marketing implications. The course is absolutely worth $2,000!”

A retired railway worker from Michigan said, “Your course opened my eyes to the merits, profits, and prestige of becoming a publisher, particularly the idea of publishing in Canada for distribution in the U.S. (for total tax protection).” An employed couple from New York wrote, “We found the course interesting and informative. We were inspired to start work on a booklet. When we came down, we had no idea on what to publish.” And an attorney from Germany stated, “What I like most is that it is a nuts and bolts course-not pie in the sky.” While a business woman from Atlanta exclaimed, “It was great going through your steps, being 100% honest without fear of giving trade secrets since you have paid the price (to gain this knowledge).”

Merri and I were overwhelmed at how much the course helped delegates over the years. Now thanks to the miracle of the worldwide web we have been able to let you know about this course through my website which saves us tens of thousands of dollars and allows us to invite you to sign up for only $799.

Here are some of the lessons you will learn at the camp:

How to publish on Kindle, Nook and others as an epublisher.

How to use Twitter and a website.  Twitter is the new viral marketing tool for epublishers.  Learn all the tricks of the trade, how to get the best following with the greatest response.  See why to avoid the biggest Tweeters to choose the right linkage. Every secret we have learned is included.

Who is this course for?

If you want to become a better writer, own your own full or part time publishing business, or want to build your existing business through publishing you should sign up for this Writer’s Camp.

Here is what to do. If you’re not sure whether you really want to write, to use publishing in a business, consider the ways that such a way of living can improve your life.

This course is for individuals and couples. We include those who have desires to write and to create, who might want their own business or who want to have a business together or a family business. Business people or professionals who want to add an extra profit center to their business or who want to change their business entirely will benefit. Those who want more control over their career should attend. Plus those who love global travel and want to turn their trips into profitable tax deductions!

Merri and I will both teach this course (Merri’s publishing experience even outstrips mine) and we expect to spend a great deal of personal time with each person who signs up. This means the numbers we can accept at the course must be strictly limited.

Our business has brought us more wealth, satisfaction, fun and friendship than I imagined possible. It has brought so much to my life, I would like to help everyone pursue their desire to write, create and publish. That is not possible, but we hope you are one with whom we will have the pleasure sharing this exciting and profitable way of life!

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 to share all we know to help you.

My notes on the benefits when I discovered  Positive Community Magazines

#2: Learn How to Earn with Positive Community News March 18.

As you’ll see below we stumbled across a new big adventure… highly profitable… plus really good for the community and fulfilling for those involved.

This is an odd new direction for us.  We have been “Mr. and Mrs. International” for 45 years.  Now we are jumping head first into Smalltown USA (or Smalltown Canada…or Ecuador).

For four decades we have been urging readers to expand their global horizons.  Suddenly we are suggesting that there is a pot of gold waiting in your own back yard.  The report explains why we feel really comfortable with this and see it as having the biggest potential…on goodness and profit, of anything we have experienced ever before.

You’ll learn in a moment how Merri and I met Dave and Sherry Johnson.  We saw that they had a business plan that was special… I mean really special… one that had pulled them from an incredible low point in their lives to a healthy income… plus a wonderful standing in their community.  This was a plan that fit into our lifestyle philosophy in so many positive ways that we began thinking that we should become involved.

I immediately sat down and asked myself “Why?”  Here are my original notes as I thought all of this through.  I found 11 powerful benefits for Merri, me and any readers who choose to become involved.  (In just a moment, we will look at these benefits in more detail.)

This report explains the business plan currently being used by Dave and Sherry Johnson that brings them an income of over $17,000 a month a month as they serve a really small – highly defined community in the publishing field.

This report outlines:

* The benefits of having a writing and publishing business.

* How Merri and I developed a publishing business.

* Why small is better in today’s social and economic world.

* How Merri and I discovered this community business plan.

* Who is using this business plan now.

* How readers are using this business plan to earn $11,835 per month.

* How you can be one of 20 people to participate in the first expansion of this business plan.

In  a moment I’ll introduce Dave and Sherry Johnson and Positive Community Magazine Publishing in a joint venture between Dave & Sherry, David Cross, our webmaster, Merri and me.  Combined we bring a tremendous amount of business and publishing experience into a system that can help you earn $11,835 (or higher) monthly  and gain much, much more.

This report shares how you can turn yourself into a well paid publishing professional with “Positive Community Magazine” (PCM) training, a cutting-edge system that turns the magazine industry upside down.

The PCM system teaches how to publish magazines that are:

* Hyper Local (Small Distribution Area)

* Focused on Quality Vs. Quantity

* Provided Free, Low-cost and with Paid-for Editorial

* Reaching Readers with Low Distribution Costs

* Publishing with Low Printing & Operational Costs

* Providing Affordable Advertising Rates – All Businesses (Large & Small) Can Afford & Profit

* Giving Service to the Community

* Engaging Readers Because the Magazine is about Them and Their Community

You as an Independent Publisher can gain full training delivered through the Internet of Dave & Sherry Johnson’s Proven Business Model.

Plus only those who take this training have access to additional optional:

* Online Sales Training & Support Seminars

* Archive of Articles Design Templates

* Low-cost, High Quality Printing

* Magazine Website Assistance

* Marketing Materials

The Proforma Income for a 64-page Magazine

* Ad Revenue    $13,000   (40% ads/$500 per ad page)

* Editorial Revenues   $ 4,635

* Printing & Fees (if you choose use all of PCM’s services) $4,300

* Estimated Operational Expenses  $1,500

* Profit $11,835

All PCM services are optional for those publishing magazines.   Profits may be higher when a publisher does magazine design… ad building… all article writing… and fully manages the magazine website.

Advantages of Magazine Publishing

* Freedom of owning your own business and all the benefits that go along with it

* Press Credentials

* Prestige (Celebrity Status)

* Service You Provide to the Community

* Philanthropy

* Well Respected Profession

* “In The Know”

If you like this idea.  If you want to write, if you want to be a publisher, want to be a bigger part of your community and want to earn an income like this… read on.

What Are the Benefits?

Let’s begin by looking at the eleven benefits:

#1:  Freedom of Choice. When you own your own business and all the benefits that go along  with it, you set your own hours.  You work when you want to, not when you are told.   Working at home eliminates a commute unless you count the 8 seconds it takes to walk from the bedroom to your office.  You can even work in your pajamas.  Dave Johnson says that this is one of his favorite benefits.  You don’t have to ask permission to take time off to attend your children’s sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event.

#2:  Greater Control over your earnings and your destiny. If you want to earn more, give yourself a raise by increasing your revenue.  When you work hard, you are working hard for your benefit and wealth not someone else’s.

#3: Tremendous Tax Benefits.  Many after tax expenditures become tax deductible business expenses.

#4:  Becoming part of the Solution, not part of the problem.  There is so much bad news now all about events we are powerless to change or stop. Helping build a better positive community is something we can actually do.   Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy.  Having a successful small business helps develop strong community economics.

#5:  You have PRESS Credentials.  Some big venues (like NASCAR) require official credentials which you can get by calling the press office. Other smaller venues you can create your own “PRESS” badge and it usually gets you “behind the scenes” access.  Not to mention, everyone wants to talk to the press so they can end up in the magazine.

Dave wrote: Being part of the press also (usually) gets you free admission into most events.  Worst case scenario, you trade/barter an ad to gain admission.  We are going to an event today called the “Big Sip”.  Not only did we get free tickets, we got free VIP tickets which gets us into the show early and gives us access to things non-VIP ticket holders will not have access.

#6: Prestige (Near Celebrity Status).   Dave also said: We get invited to everything because people want our Magazine at their events.  Additionally, we have become very well known around town.

#7:  Service  to the Community.   Dave has been told that their magazine and the content they publish really shines a positive light on the community.  He wrote: We give a voice to organizations that normally wouldn’t have one.  We raise awareness to programs being hosted by the myriad of organizations here in town that most people would normally never hear of.  

We save lives.  In one issue of our  magazines, we did a story about a little boy that was struggling with a rare disease that caused life-threatening seizures.  One day, while his mom was out shopping, the little boy had a seizure so she rushed him to the hospital.  She called ahead and the nurse met her at the emergency room.  As it happened, the nurse had read the article in the magazine (which someone had brought to the nurse’s lounge) and she recognized the little boy from the article. 

Since she knew immediately what was wrong with him, no time was wasted and he was treated quickly.  We were told that this particular seizure was especially bad and that the article probably saved his life. 

Obviously, this doesn’t happen every day but once in a lifetime is good enough.

#8:  Be Philanthropic.  Dave and Sherry have chosen two non-profit organizations to support.  One of the things non-profits need is press coverage and advertising.  They give about $10,000 worth of advertising a year to their non-profits and various other groups to help these worthwhile groups get the exposure they need.

#9: Gain Respect.  Publishers are the people who bring the information to the rest of the world in an information era.  They are the ones that affect change and because of this, have a tremendous amount of power.  For this reason, people like to say they “know the publisher” and will extend all sorts of courtesies to get to know the publisher.

#10:  Be in the Know.  Dave said: Because we are part of the press, we get a tremendous amount of Press Releases e-mailed to us on a daily basis.  We are usually the first to know about something new going on in town.  If we aren’t the first, we are always included.  And, as part of the research we do for articles, we tend to uncover information people don’t know or have forgotten about.

#11:  Have a Big-Picture Perspective without going broke. Being able to fit your business to circumstance can sometimes be the most importune benefit of all.  Dave and Sherry Johnson had just started their business rolling when their daughter was diagnosed with bone cancer.   During their daughter’s hospitalization Sherry or Dave were able to be there 24/7… yet continued to build the business.

Sherry told me… “This is one of the BEST reasons for owning this type of business, the freedom to work from the hospital room on your laptop and be there when your child needs you the most”.

In my opinion, there are three major reasons to consider publishing…

The first point is you… then your reader and finally the profit.   All three must be served.  This is what makes this new community publishing system so exciting.  The program is so profitable…  so fulfilling for the publisher, plus does so much good for the small community in a way that helps the entire world.  This program turns the concepts of modern publishing upside down.  Or rather it returns the concepts of publishing back to its roots by combining ancient wisdom and modern technology.

There are huge amounts of evidence showing why thinking SMALL is a really BIG idea.

To better understand the power of SMALL let’s look at a list of the wealthiest Americans.

Sam Buffet… or is it Warren Walton?   Here is how to earn $11,835 a month from three cherished beliefs that Sam Walton and Warren Buffet shared.

Forbes magazine listed the 10 wealthiest Americans in an article entitled “The Faces Of Wealth in America”.

These top ten are:

# 1: Bill Gates  $66 B

# 2: Warren Buffett  $46 B

#3: Larry Ellison $41 B

#4: Charles Koch $31 B

#5:  David Koch  $31 B

#6: Christy Walton & family $27.9 B

#7: Jim Walton $26.8 B

#8:  Alice Walton  $26.3 B

#9: S. Robson Walton  $26.1 B

# 10 Michael Bloomberg  $25 B

Sam Walton’s fortune is still the largest by about 25%.

Imagine combining the wealth Walton created with that of Warren Buffet.  You get 150.1 billions dollars… far more than the wealth created by Bill Gates and any other three of the top ten combined… by just these two men.

Sam Buffet and Warren Walton!  What a combination.

So I ask, who would you like to help you?

Sam Walton

Here is how to earn $11,835 a month (or more) from three cherished beliefs that Sam Walton and Warren Buffet shared.

sam buffet

Warren Buffet

Buffet and Walton shared several cherished business beliefs that you can gain in a special writing and publishing business that is at its very beginning stage.

Cherished Belief #1:  Smalltown USA.  Both Sam Walton (Bentonville, Arkansas) and Warren Buffet (Omaha, Nebraska) chose America’s heartland away from the big cities as their homes.  What’s more Walton chose to do business there as well… building the largest retail operation in the world almost entirely in small towns.

Warren Buffet believes that potential in Smalltown USA offers special value right now.  He believes this so strongly that he is buying newspapers in small towns.

In 2012 Berkshire Hathaway purchased 63 small and mid-sized daily and weekly newspapers throughout the United States.  He plans to buy more and says: “I like buying individual papers at the right prices.” 

Cherished Belief #2:  Community Orientation.

Buffet is not buying big publications but is grabbing up small community focused publications.

His bet is that publications focused on local communities can withstand the shift of readers and advertisers to the Internet.

The individual papers can be as small as 10,000 circulation with a tiny staff of 33 people.

He said no one has stopped reading “half-way through a story that was about them or their neighbors.”

He also noted, “Berkshire buys for keeps. I’d rather buy newspapers myself directly,” and is seeking papers that publish in cities and towns with a “sense of community”.

From this vision Wal Mart remains committed not just to expanding the business but to improving the communities.

You can do this as well through Positive Publishing.

Cherished Belief #3:  Seek Good Value.

Sam Walton built one of the largest fortunes in the world… with the simple goals of providing great value and great customer service.  Warren Buffett’s belief is that the essence of value investing is buying stocks at less than their intrinsic value.   The discount is called the “margin of safety”.

Both Buffet and Walton shared a vision that small American towns… ignored by the mainstream offered good value.

This is why I would like to introduce you to the “Sam Buffet” of magazine publishing and and the “Warren Walton” of internet publishing to show you a phenomenal way to earn… as a publisher who helps a small community.

Knowing BOTH a magazine publisher and internet marketing genius is important for a reason Buffet outlined to his publishers when he purchased their papers.  Buffet believes that small newspapers will change and that they serve an important purpose.  He said, “papers must rethink the industry’s initial response to the Internet as focus on continuing to maintain a strong sense of community“.

His bet is that publications focused on local communities can withstand the shift of readers and advertisers to the Internet.  Buffet has said that giving news away free online is “unsustainable” and has sought papers that publish in cities and towns with a “sense of community.

To begin this introduction let me add one more point and outline the value of what I am about to offer.   I will show you how to gain from Merri, me, David Cross and the Johnsons so you can publish your own community magazine.  Right now you can gain enormous value that may save you $7,001.

Here are the people who have contributed to the program you can use.

I call my webmaster, David Cross, the Warren Buffet of the internet.

david-cross-image tags:"2012-4-21"

David has an unparalleled, hands-on marketing experience spanning 25 years in 22 countries for companies and charities large and small. He’s guided many companies and individuals to success in business and helped them achieve their marketing goals, both online and offline.   He started working with the internet from the getgo and I have been lucky that he helped us start our website in the 1990s.

He was also Senior Internet Consultant to Agora Inc. in Baltimore, MD.  David worked closely with Agora’s publishers and marketers and over an 8-year period helped to propel Agora’s online revenues to over $300 Million in 2009 until he came to work with Merri and me full time.

We might say that half of Buffet’s value equation is in his experience and knowledge.

Recently the second half presented themselves to Merri and me…. in the form of Dave and Sherry Johnson who attended one of our Super Thinking courses.  I discovered that Dave and Sherry published a couple of magazines in North Carolina when they enrolled for the course… but what I did not know was the value of what they had developed in publishing small town community magazines.

Dave started as a media marketer and has sold most media including radio, cable television, direct mail, magazine, yellow pages, newspaper and Internet.  He enjoyed great success until times turn sour during the 2007 recession as they did for so many.  Being under the gun, Dave and Sherry lost everything so they moved to Asheboro, North Carolina and started their own magazine which has risen from success to success.

Time and Place

The old adage is to be in the right time and at the right place.  Imagine this timing… 2009 with the US facing a sluggish economy and risking a double dip recession.

The place?   Forbes magazine highlighted Asheboro, North Carolina in 2008 but not in a way you would think.

Forbes’s article was entitled “In Depth: America’s Fastest-Dying Towns” and said:  Asheboro is one of the few places in North Carolina where domestic migration rates fell between 2000 and 2007, from 10.5% to 1.9%. Poverty surged from 15.7% to 26.7% as incomes declined by 9.5%. The city, built on manufacturing and heavy industry for everything from batteries to tires, has yet to find a new niche.

There they were… Dave and Sherry… starting a magazine on a shoestring… (or  perhaps a little less)… in the fourth fastest dying town in the US..  Sherry put it this way…  “Failure was not an option.  We had to make a profit before we published our first edition”.  They did and have risen from success to success.

When I heard this story and read their magazine I let no moss gather beneath my feet and asked them to join us to form a team…helping you to publish your own community magazine… profitably… immediately… in just a couple of months.

Here is the team which can serve you.

Merri and I have had a long career in publishing.  Before we met, Merri was executive editor of Gulfshore Life in Naples, Florida (which was sold to the publishers of Robb Report in 2004 for $21 million dollars).  She lectured at Magazine Conferences and brought a number of other magazines up to be award winners.  She had long been an editor and publisher (since her early 20s) and then joined me in publishing our newsletters and later in producing our daily ezine.  Later we helped a regional magazine on the verge of bankruptcy turn itself around and become a national publication.

We have combined our experience with David Cross, our webmaster, and Dave and Sherry Johnson.

Here is how this team can help you publish your own magazine in a small community.

We are offering a course that teaches you how to be an Independent Community Magazine Publisher.

In addition we can supply support through a new venture we have created Positive Community Magazines.


The important point is that you have a full choice as to whether you use the PCM services or not.

Dave calls this service “Magazine Publishing Business in a Box”.

The online training gives you all you need to start and run a magazine on your own.

Your own community magazine allows you to put your desire to profit through writing to work.

As an Independent Community Publisher, you’ll be able to publish positive, upbeat community publications dedicated to representing, encouraging and celebrating the community you serve by focusing on the lifestyles, talents, gifts and contributions of the people who live and work there.

We are launching a special beta program to start and you can enjoy great savings and be among the first to start earning as much as $11,835 a month.  (This is based on a 64 page magazine model.)  This requires a population of about 25,000 to 35,000 people.  There is an important details to the selection of your community that you’ll learn in the course.

You can gain a huge savings… by acting in this beta program.

Merri and I see Positive Community Magazines as one of the most important services we have been able to bring to our readers ever. This service helps our readers write to sell and to help readers enjoy Smalltown USA AND to bring a positive influence to communities across the nation.

However, let me make two extremely important points clear.

First… the key to success will depend on your effort… your dedication to your local community and especially your ability (or an associate) to sell advertising.  The magazine business in a box provides ad sales training and support… but in the end, these sales require that someone meet with local businesses and ask for their advertising support.

We want to make sure that your own magazine business is right for you so we have added a protection to reduce the potential for risk.

To be sure that a publishing career is for you, we have arranged a half day workshop (plus additional time) for more personal meetings.   You can opt out for a full refund with no financial loss and zero risk except your time of meeting with the people who can serve you

Fair enough?  There is more.

The course fee is $499.

PCM will conduct an invitation only introductory meeting beginning at 1pm in Mt. Dora, Florida January 19.  Dave and Sherry, Merri and I will also be available on the morning of January 20 so you can meet and review the possibilities, the people and the services provided.

If not fully satisfied at that time, you can opt out for a full refund with no cost other than your own time and travel costs.

After attending the introductory workshop we’ll send you  “Community Magazine Publishing” training and business plans.  This program is truly the essence of small business publishing.  There is no other system that even compares.

This system also allows one to combat any competitive magazine in the same market that is using a much larger staff, a traditional model or one which has much greater resources.

Here is the Outline of the Magazine Publishing Business in a Box

Chapter 2 – Business Basics

Chapter 3 – Traditional Magazine Publishing Explained

Chapter 4 – Our Publishing System Overview

Chapter 5 – The first 30 Days

Chapter 12 – Days 61-90

Chapter 13 – File to the Printer

Chapter 14 – Creating A Monthly Routine

Chapter 15 – What’s Next? – Increasing your income by upselling current

The enormous value these magazines provide advertisers is the ultimate reason why this model succeeds… but it will be the publisher and/or ad salesmen that generates the income that makes a publication profitable.

Some publishers will use advertising sales people.  If you do…expect to reduce your profit by 30%.

All businesses have risk so your time and normal costs of running the business will have normal business risks.

The belief is that a Community Publisher in a town of approximately 30,000 population can earn approximately $11,835 a month after paying all service fees (if all support is selected).  However, magazines in smaller areas can often have similar earnings….and prove that small is good also.  Publishers who choose do do everything on their own could earn $17,000 or more a month.

At the workshop, we will give you advice on how to select a community where you want to publish.  This can be in a geographical area or based around a mutual interest.  One publisher is going to do a motorcycle rider magazine for example….another will be for entrepreneurs.

At the workshop we’ll review how to zero in on the 942 Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) in the USA that have at least one urban core area of at least 10,000 population, as well as a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.  If you live outside the US, we’ll look at other parameters for choosing a community.

Each Community Publisher is an independent business person.  Each chooses his or her magazine’s name. Each chooses which services (beyond the initial training) they desire from PCM.  Each Independent Community Publisher has complete editorial control of their magazines.

Merri, David Cross and I will be involved in this effort with David and Sherry Johnson.

Merri and I will assist in creating the initial training and provide overall consultation to PCM.

David Cross will help provide the internet services to PCM and the Independent Community Publishers.

The “Magazine Publishing Business in a Box” service is an online training program that allows the Community Publisher to start and operate a magazine.  PCM provides optional printing and editorial support.  Additional services available include article archives, graphic design, layout, etc.

Merri and I have enjoyed participating in many prosperous publishing businesses over the last 40 years.  Positive Community Magazines offer easier, faster profits from a positive business than any we have seen to date.  We look forward to working with those who join this first Beta publishing effort.

#3: Learn how to speak Spanish in just three days using Frequency Modulation.

Super Thinking tactics help us absorb… retain and recall information better and faster.  We prove this in our Super Thinking + Spanish course which teaches delegates to communicate on Spanish in just three days.

Delegates at a 2012 Mt. Dora Super Thinking + Spanish course… a Doctor attendee wrote:  Merri,

We want to thank you and Gary plus all the others for making the class such a fun and rewarding experience.   I took Spanish as an undergraduate and lasted two days before dropping the class due to my own anxieties.  Over the years I have tried to learn French, Italian, and Spanish yet again using a variety of methods such as Rosetta Stone, Berlitz etc. and was never successful.  I finally feel like I can be successful at learning to converse at Spanish–in fact already feel successful!  Thanks so much for teaching an old dog some new tricks.  We’re both looking forward to continuing the learning process, having fun doing so, and taking more classes.

March 19-20-21  Mt. Dora Florida Super Thinking + Spanish   Single $699    Couple $899 (Teacher Mark Frakes)

Spanish is the second largest language in the world. Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you. Yet our language system did not teach us how to communicate with or understand this culture.

Learning Spanish is valuable and important.  Now there is way, to enjoy a long weekend as you learn Spanish at a very affordable price.

Unlock the power of your untapped knowledge.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness. In just three days you can gain almost amazing learning skills.  Plus you become skilled in Spanish as a bonus.

In just three days?

Sound too good to be true?

This is not a gimmick nor a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

This book exposed this fact and made the system so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system from this Bulgarian master. She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.

With her modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully in just three days. To prove how good you will be with this process, you learn Spanish as a side benefit.

The learning system you gain expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

There are three scientific reasons why this course will change your learning capacity forever (and help you speak Spanish in just four days).

This system uses music to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  This brings forth the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.


Don Childs, our pronunciation coach & Merri. A delegate just created a great Spanish sentence on the second day. Congratulations!

The Super Thinking system works by focusing on the learner first… the data second.  The system “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information.  The explosion of data we must all process everyday means there is too much information to process already.    Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner”  means.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!

You learn how to evoke the power of the senses thus super-charging memory. Ever hear a song from twenty, thirty or forty years past and in a snap know all the words, the tune and remember with who and where your heard it decades ago? Learn how to use ten cycle music to gain almost super human thinking powers.

Dr. Lozanov was totally committed to learning without stress, to enjoy the thrill of relaxed, leisurely learning. These are just two, whole learning, super-thinking tactics you gain at this course.

What is your desire? Do you want to speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese or any language? Would you like to golf better or accomplish more in school? Would you like to easily, quickly zip through projects, chores, reports? Merri’s “Super Thinking” course can help you learn any subject two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways.

The techniques you gain will help unlock the quantum potential we all possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make you a startling 25 percent smarter, how subliminal messages can increase your energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.

Merri’s system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 books plus includes techniques and strategies that she has gained in her 42 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows you how to increase your mental power to better succeed in the 21st century when we can otherwise be overwhelmed by information.

The system you gain is built from old and new sources ranging from yoga to contemporary Russian science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

“Super Thinking plus Spanish” presents new ways to use music to supercharge your mind. The knowledge you gain about smart food and super nutrition allows you to enhance productivity and creativity.

The tactics you gain enhance your ability to absorb… retain and recall information.

Once these concepts of enhancing your mental powers with music are understood, you will know how to create your own program and build new skills at work in study and play.

Second you gain seventeen, easy to use learning techniques that can help you gain any romantic language in much less time than traditional learning techniques.

Fluency in a language is considered to come when you know 1,200 words. To prove that it is possible to gain this and much more, let me share just one of the 17 tactics Merri taught me that gives you thousands of Spanish words in less than three minutes.

Here are the thousands of Spanish words lesson #1:

All words in Spanish and English that end in ION are almost identical,  just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education educacion, manipulation, manipulacion, etc.

Now you already literally know hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

Third, you learn how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves you sounding like a Spanish professor (believe me I know as I use this tactic every day when in Ecuador).

There are many other lessons. For example lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you want in Spanish. Lesson six gives you the valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples your Spanish capacity with yesterday, now and tomorrow.

By the end of the three day course you will feel quite comfortable speaking Spanish without stress!

A delegate who learned Super Spanish outlined how this course can help you.   After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!  Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.  In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed (No wonder I have had high blood pressure!) .   In class, the past three days, I’ve been introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music.  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make this a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi

The Super Spanish helps you start speaking and understanding Spanish right away.  This can help you speak Spanish faster and make your traditional Spanish course easier and more effective. 

A Livescience.com article helps explain why this course works and how delegates are creating Spanish sentences by the first lunch break and can communicate well in Spanish after just three days.   This article by Jeremy Hsu, LiveScience Senior Writer, is entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages”

Four important points in the article are shown in excerpts below with my comments to show what has been wrong with traditional Spanish courses and why the Super Thinking tactic is perfect for this program.

The article says: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.

“In U.S. education, we don’t develop early bilinguals,” said Catherine Doughty, a language expert at the University of Maryland.

Doughty spoke as part of a panel on Feb. 19 during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Washington, D.C. Finding the best.  Government agencies aren’t alone in trying to recruit multilingual speakers; U.S. corporations covet such skills for doing business in the era of globalization.

The article explained how Doughty and her colleagues used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning.  The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.

The article reviewed changes in the brain.  Lee Osterhout is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Washington in Seattle.  His lab used electrodes placed on the scalp to measure the electrical activity created by the signals of brain cells. That allowed the researchers to see differences in the brain patterns among language learners and fluent speakers. They found some surprising results.

The article pointed out: Repeated studies of French language students showed that their brains responded differently to real French words compared with fake words after just two weeks of classes, even if the students themselves could not tell such words apart.   

“From knowing nothing to a little bit, [there are] huge changes in the brain,” Osterhout pointed out.”[From] knowing a little to knowing a lot, [it is] much more subtle.”  Another surprise came from studies of Spanish-speaking immigrants, because neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly the immigrants picked up English. Instead, the fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use English at every opportunity despite being bad at it (at first).

MY COMMENT: This is the other reason why Super Thinking plus Spanish works. This three day course gets the delegates speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so they can use and/or think Spanish every day… and communicating even from the beginning. In this way the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.

The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain.  Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in just three days.

Travel, accommodations and food are not included.

Here are what delegates wrote about a Super Thinking + Spanish seminar. 

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Another wrote: Hi Gary & Merri –  First, Merri, thanks for the great home made chili dinner. It was some of the best I have ever tasted. Also, thanks for the Spanish course. Merri’s technique is truly a breakthrough in learning.  I believe I learned more Spanish in four days than I learned in four weeks in a previously attended Costa Rica language school.  The Costa Rica school taught a very limited number of memorized words and phrases. Ted.

Another delegate at a Super thinking plus Spanish seminar wrote: Merri’s approach exposed us to a broad variety of works and the technique needed to expand the language.  Again, Thanks for the experience.

One attendee wrote: Thank you very much Gary! And I just wanted to say thank you and Merri so much for everything during the seminar. You guys are indeed a shining example of having a business that truly serves others. And thanks for the extra time spent and good things taught to me personally. I have begun to implement them already and will continue to apply them. And you might be interested that waiting for my flight home I ended up sitting next to a woman from Quito and could understand some of what she said in a cell phone conversation. We talked a little and she said that I should visit Ecuador!  Thank you again for your real graciousness and acceptance! I will also write to Merri and thank her as well. And I wish that I could do something for you two!

Another sent this note: Hello Merri,  Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you and Gary.  I am definitely going to take more of the courses that you and Gary are teaching.  I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Thank you for sending the file of the 4005 Spanish words.  This will be very helpful in my daily review of Spanish.

Another emailed this: Every day I’m becoming more proficient in Spanish.  As I get ready to do something, I think about how I would say it in Spanish.  Thank you again for a Super Workshop!  With love and blessings,

Another: Gary and Merri,  It certainly was an interesting and intriguing four days for me.  I enjoyed the Spanish but even more so, all the tentacles that extended during those four days that went into so many different directions.

I grew up in a very SQUARE box with loving  and intelligent parents but my world remained within this box, unable to see beyond those walls, as I was never encouraged to “think outside the box”..  Mike has been opening doors and leading me outside this box but because of my upbringing I have not completely embraced or understood what was beyond those doors he opened for me.  As I have gotten older I have become more open to the world outside those doors yet those old tapes continue to play and I have not been able to completely release myself and experience all that can be.

Another shared this: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible” and I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.

I found all the information you offered on healing, realigning the body, nutrition, etc. so fascinating, have you ever thought about doing a course on just that?  With the aging population and the health care issues I think it would be not only an interesting course but one that would be very beneficial to so many.  I, personally, would love to learn more about what you talked about and plan on purchasing the book, “Body Renewal, the Lost Art of Self Healing” for my Kindle.

Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Another: Hola Merri Y Gary, I was thinking about you this Remembrance Day, and I went to check emails and there you are!  We had fun at Disney World on Monday and sat beside several Personnes Espaniol.  We could understand them however I couldn’t make sentences quickly, but could say one or two word phrases that were understood.  We arrived home at 3am yesterday – the airlines were very late in Denver due to a crew incident.

I found myself making up sentences all day yesterday as I was running errands.  John knows more vocabulary than I at this point as he has studied Spanish previously.  Today I will begin to review the lessons and construct sentences to send to you and the group – as you suggested below.  Es en BUENO sugestion!!!  I also received the email Merri sent with the 4005 words and started to scroll through those yesterday.

Another: Thank YOU Merri, Gary, Don and Richard for everything you have done to create and bring this wonderful experience to all of us.  It takes a well sychronized team of people to put on an effective, change producing seminar!  I have given many seminars and enjoyed the experience immensely.  The outcome is even better!  Estoy une infantil de Super Thinking and Spanish, y es possible aprender en tiempo.

John and I both thank all of you for the wonderful experience – we are working now to clear up things so we can leave for the Galapagos and Ecuador November 25th – December 20th.  Nosotros tiene muchos appreciacion!  Gracias y Abrazos,

Hello Gary,  Muchas gracias para la informacion!  I had a wonderful time at the Super Learning + Spanish weekend!… excelente!

I was impressed with your depth of knowledge on numerous subjects and your ability to speak about them with exceptional recall.  Con mucho apriciar,  P.S. Yo estoy enteresado en Espanol #2.

One delegate even explained how after our course they ended up as the accidental translator: Gary,  I have sent Merri a couple of messages, and  a story of Mike being able to translate yesterday for a Spanish person  who couldn’t understand what a man was trying to tell him!

We loved the seminar, and are excited to put the super learning to practice, and especially the great company of like-minded people (especially G & M!)  Muchas Gracias!  Tiene an excellante dias.

Another was able to write part of his thanks in Spanish. Gary Thanks so much for sending the course and the extra one ( that was an unexpected and delightful surprise!)  It was great seeing you and Merri again and we are looking forward to returning to Mt. Dora next year.  usted y Meri tengo un fantastico celabracion de la dar gracia y navidad

Finally another…. communicated entirely in Spanish…. after just our Super Thinking + Spanish seminar: Buenas dias nuestra maestra perfectamente, Merri!   Muchas gracias por la lista espanol.

Claro, David y yo aprendemous mucho espanol el fine de semana pasada. Gary y usted nos hacen espanol muy facil aprender. Es importante continuar a practicar espanol cada dia. Gracias tambien!  Buenas suerte…hasta la vista! Con mucho amor,

Comments from another delegate: I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you!  Saludos!

Whether your goal is to reduce your cost of living… increase your income… enhance the return on your investments or all, being able to speak Spanish… enhances your opportunity and does the world good.

Lose Weight and Inches With Frequency Modulation

See an example from a Super Thinking + Spanish delegate who lost 55 pounds after taking our course.   See how Jim Reed used our Super Thinking + Spanish course to enhance his health and wealth as well as speak Spanish.

The ability to speak Spanish… even if you never leave the US is valuable in this day and age.   Spanish opens access to a good labor force and helps you communicate with a useful part of the American population.

Beyond Spanish… knowledge is bliss. Ignorance is dangerous in these times of rapid change.  The more knowledge we can absorb, retain and recall… the better our chances of success… higher income… less stress…. better health and more fulfillment.

So it’s little wonder that the attendance at our Super Thinking + Spanish and Quantum Wealth courses have grown dramatically.   Our changing world not only reinforces the need to speak Spanish but also requires us to be smarter.

Here are more raves from delegates of this course:

Gary & Merri, Mike and I have so enjoyed attending your seminars.  I look at is as a place to gain  “tools for life” as well as  receiving a plethera of information on the topics at hand.

(So far we attended  Spanish and investing.) I get equally as much value out of the tools, and mindset in viewing the information that can be applied to life in general as well as the topic at hand. So thanks for enjoying what you do… it definitely shows up in real world application.

At each seminar we meet many interesting and unique folk – I think the audience you draw  can think out of the box at least a little bit! So again thanks for gathering such a wonderful array of resources for us.

Another emailed:  Dear Gary and Merrie,  We so enjoyed the language class last weekend at Mt Dora!

Carolyn came back with your simple, common sense approach and the new tools to start speaking.

Most remarkable is that she feels comfortable putting together sentences and ‘communicating.’ Somehow many of us seem to get caught in the trap of thinking we have to say it ‘right,’ and so we don’t even try. It is interesting that we do not see ourselves ‘creating’ communication in our native tongue; each saying it a little different than the other, and yet still all getting the ‘communication’ across the bridge in our own manner.

We delighted to know you both better, and greatly admire your passion for life and generosity sharing what you have learned.

We are planning to attend the next business seminar you offer. Carolyn is talking about returning for the Fall Spanish Super Thinking class with a girlfriend.

We are excited by the many new challenges we have found through your offerings.

Another a dentist said: I was so delighted with my experience at the Spanish training.  I felt more confident of ability to pronounce Spanish than I ever was of French or German.  Funny… I did not think I remembered any French or German but when I cannot remember the Spanish words the German and French popped up.  Practicing my pronunciation made my trip home go faster. I never enjoyed pronouncing either of the other two, but this was fun. It is hard to fall asleep at the wheel when you are moving your mouth to speak Spanish. It does work your mouth in a different way.  I realized that you have to say each syllable slowly and correctly(until you get it perfectly) and when you do it is impressive.

It was amazing to see us all writing such advanced sentences after a few days and so much more enjoyable than having to go through the alphabet to build the words to build the sentences.
