We are looking for ways to reduce stress and improve life in the face of change. Fake news is one of the biggest changes that can add pressure, anxiety and aggravation.
Fortunately we can once again see how the forces of commerce are creating opportunities from change. In this instance commerce is fighting fake news with influencers and this is a bandwagon you can get on.
See why the inflencer movement is booming and how you can ferret out opportunity and enjoy being an influencer now.
The image is of a ferret drawn by my sister and used at her website, lifeimitatesdoodles.blogspot.com where she is an influencer. See how she influences below.
First let’s look at the Influencer Movement.
The NYT.com article “Now get ready for the nanoinfluencers” shows images of #sponsored content from the Instagram accounts of Alexis Baker, top row, and Haley Stutzman. Ms. Baker has about 2,600 followers and Ms. Stutzman about 5,500.
The article says: By now you have probably heard of influencers, that group of internet-famous people who have more than a million social media followers and can make big money by plugging various brands. And you may have even heard of microinfluencers, who do the same thing for a still sizable but somewhat smaller social media audience — from the tens to low hundreds of thousands.
That is the term (“nanos” for short) used by companies to describe people who have as few as 1,000 followers and are willing to advertise products on social media.
Their lack of fame is one of the qualities that make them approachable. When they recommend a shampoo or a lotion or a furniture brand on Instagram, their word seems as genuine as advice from a friend.
Companies are seeking out relative unknowns during a gold rush in advertising through popular social media personalities. But as influencers — like the 20-year-old fashion model Luka Sabbat, with his 1.4 million Instagram followers — have grown in popularity, they have started charging more. And with their success and online fame, they may be losing the homespun quality that once distinguished them from the crowd of celebrity endorsers.
Here is the opportunity for you.
The article points out that there is such a saturation at the top that businesses are pushing to work with smaller and smaller influencers, because their engagement is so high and the technology to work with numerous influencers is available to track and measure what works.
My sister, Sandra Kay Strait, (Babsis to me) has been taking advantage of this opportunity and we can learn from what she does. She is a remarkable artist and loves to create art. Her activity creating and running her website llifeimitatesdoodles.blogspot.com (2) does not seem like work to her!
Her followers and views double almost every year.
She has built up millions of visits to her site and has thousands of followers on LID Blog, Feedburner, Flickr,
Freehand Doodle Patterns, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ ROI, Tumblr and Pinterest.
She does not do this for the money, but gains huge savings, free art supplies and has built a large cadre of friendships among fellow artists who are like minded souls.
When she received new materials, she reports on how she like them at her website. and provides a link to the supplier.
Here is an image from here site.
How Fake News Creates Opportunity
Sandra tells it like it is and has built a reputation for being truthful.
Here’s what she said about some Hahnemühle water color paper she received.
Zebra Pen Zensations Technical Pen & Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing set Watercolors on Hahnemühle Cold Pressed Watercolor P.ostcard
She wrote (bolds are mine): I was playing around with the colors in two of Daniel Smith’s new pan palettes, the ‘Blues’ and ‘Earth’ sets.
This is also a destruction piece, in that I kept working it until I reached the limits of the paper. Papers react differently when they reach their limit. Some just get really ugly, turning the colors into mud. Some start to pill, bits of the paper actually tearing off. Others, as with this Britannia, just stop accepting color.
I’d say the paper was average in reaching the limits of wet into wet and glazing both.
What I like best about this paper is that both the texture and surface sizing are great for dry brushing. I didn’t do too much of that here because I was deliberately over-working, so I think I’m going to paint this subject again, in the near future, so I can take advantage of the paper’s best features instead of exploring its limits.
This is why her success and popularity grows. She gives an informed and fair, honest and useful assessment of the good and the bad of the products she tries.
Opportunity in Change.
Change is THE growth opportunity of this era. Fake news is a huge change and creates opportunity to be an influencer in communicating, through writing, recording, photography, art and song.
Becoming an influencer can be a self fulfilling business that can help you live well and help others live better too.
Writing PaysDo you like (or want) to write?
Writing helps you live longer AND earn more.
See how a couple week’s effort creates ten years of pay.
Over 30 years ago Merri and I locked ourselves in our basement every day, for ten days. We wrote a report about financial secrets.
The report sold well and generated an immediate and excellent income. Now it’s long out of date. I just have this one copy left stored in my archives.
However those ten days of effort, more than three decades ago, started a chain of events that creates residual income for Merri and me to this very day. Even better the ten days effort should continue to create income for us for many years more.
Learn how to use brief efforts of creativity to create extra income now that also continues to pay you for years… even though you don’t do a thing after the first effort. These lessons even show how to generate cash flow that lasts so long, your heirs will enjoy the income too.
Learn how to do a little work for a lot of income, that comes in, again and again. See nine secrets below on how a small independent at-home-business can generate long tail income (money that comes in again and again) from one small effort.
Learn 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.
Here are five of nine secrets, for creating long term wealth:
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 venture in the business needs to make a huge return to start and then continue generating earnings year in and year out.
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 have a purpose beyond money and 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 and felt they were doing something that was good! Money was of secondary importance to their effort. And as things are, this means they actually ended up making more!
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. The business must have resilience-so if times turn tough, they can evolve and turn change into even more income.
Secret #5: The business must be able to start small, but grow large. I learned that business ideas work best with small starts to begin 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 can grow larger with higher income.
The way to make money in this way is by publishing to sell! Almost anyone can make more than respectable income when they publish to sell. Publishing to sell fits all five secrets above, even if you never write a thing. We’ll look at the other four secrets in a moment.
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 wholesale sales, after returns. Guess who makes the other 85%? Guess whose decisions make or break the fortunes of the writer? The publisher!
Publishing to sell is a business where you get the 85% from publishing, PLUS MORE… and have extra earnings that just keep keep rolling in, year after year.
Publishing is the business of producing, selling and delivering words.
“Publishing-to-Sell” is the business of producing, selling and delivering books that provide important valuable information, but also leads to the sale of other publications, services or products.
For example, Merri and I used publishing to sell in Ecuador. We published a report about living in Ecuador. This was an informative report that helped thousands of readers move there. The report also outlined the benefits of our Ecuador real estate tours and Super Thinking Spanish courses. That particular effort starting in 1995 created a million dollar business that still generates earnings to this day even though we have not been in Ecuador for many years.
Here are other examples. One publisher who used the course, Joe Culbertson, D.C. is a chiropractor. Eating junk food creates numerous problems including difficulties in the spine so Dr. Joe created a simple use-at-home spinal device to help the spine. He published a series of articles about the spine. Those articles helped sell a three part book he published Secrets of the Spine: The True Mind/Body Connection. The book helped him sell his spinal device.
From Dr. Joe’s website.
Another smart self publisher, Jamie Alexander, who used our self publishing course, has a cooking school.
Jamie started her professional baking career at age 20 when she apprenticed under the best-selling cookbook author, Nathalie Dupree. When she was living in Paris, she studied at LaVarenne, the Cordon Bleu Cooking School and with the pastry chef of Maxim’s. Her health problems created by high blood sugar levels caused her to have a passion about baking in a healthy way. She began perfecting chocolate cake recipes that added nutritious ingredients and eliminated unhealthy ones such as sugar.
You have my word for it, these cakes are delicious and there is not an ounce of sugar or white flour! What a treat!
Jamie Alexander’s recipes are for sale at Amazon.com and include “Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownies”, “Reid’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Quinoa Brownies”, “Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa Cake” and “New Orleans Espresso-Infused Chocolate Quinoa Cake”. See all five Jamie Alexander quinoa stevia recipes below.
The sale of these recipes are really valuable and worthwhile, but they also help sell Jamie’s New Orleans cooking classes!
You can write what you publish to sell or publish what others write to sell. Some writers, like myself write and also publish. That’s because 85% of the income from printed publications normally goes to the publisher.
You can earn as a writer. You can earn as a publisher. You can publish, or write, or both! You can also generate long term income from what your publication sells.
Publishing to sell can create outrageously high long term income for little work and you can do it from your home, in an RV or even while cruising or living on a boat or traveling. It is possible to generate large amounts of extra income month after month, year after year.
Publishing to Sell has become better, much… much better. Our early success above (the ten days of effort that still earns 30 years later) began when our publishing-to-sell business was in print. When the Internet became popular and we created a website (in the 1990s), the cost of publishing risk went into a steep dive due to a new advertising medium called Pay Per Click (PPC). Prior to PPC the biggest part of every publishing venture was paper, printing and postage. If a publication was mailed, and not read, the paper, the printing and the postage still had to be paid for. The cost of sending publications which were never opened, created a huge risk.
PPC means that a publisher today only pays from the delivery of a publication when it is opened. This dramatically reduces upfront cost and risk.
Freedom is the most important benefit.
In the 1970s, I had what I thought was a good business but to be honest I could never get ahead. I always seemed to be in debt. The harder I worked, the deeper the hole my finances seemed to be in. My financial situation robbed me of freedom.
Then I discovered publishing to sell. Since then our publishing-to-sell business has brought in millions. We gained all the physical possessions we desire, more houses than we could use (we rent them), two tropical beachfront homes and a Tuscan inspired villa in the mountains overlooking a roaring creek, a 250 acre farm and a 900 acre plantation in Ecuador, plus more than enough money in the bank.
Our income exceeds our expense.
We do not have one penny of debt and we have as much leisure as we choose.
We are free to work when we want and can decide when we want to slow down and relax.
We live where we like and most important, we arise from bed without an alarm, work without undue stress and have fun every day!
My wife, Merri, and I are our own bosses and do what we love. We have learned that through publishing to sell, we can accomplish far more important goals, to gain self fulfillment and be of service to our community. In short, we get paid helping make ourselves and the world a better place.
What do you love? Rare cars? You can make a fortune publishing to sell in the genre you love. 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?
Do you prefer social subjects rather than objects? Are you concerned with the environmental problems, with crimes, war, poverty? Would you like to help wipe them out? Each of these offers opportunity in publishing.
Are you a golfer? Do you love to travel? Why not make the kinds of money I’ve just mentioned publishing reports about golf courses all over the world?
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! You can make a fortune by publishing information that sells products and services that are interesting to you.
Publishing to sell can also be international so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere. This is especially valuable if you love to travel. For example, one shrewd publisher realized that Panama was a great place to live so published information on Panama that sold Panama real estate seminars.
Other publishers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country. For example, there is currently a huge growth in domestic tourism. Self publishers are in a position to do something about it… by selling U.S. knowledge everywhere!
Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years. We earned by publishing our experiences gained in each place.
Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA. We love the peace and quiet, are closer to my mom, our children and grandchildren. We still publish to sell! In each phase of our lives, the publish-to-sell business allowed us to move and live where we desired.
Imagine what this type of business means if you love to travel. Part of every trip you take can be tax deductible! You can honestly write off every trip that is related to your publishing business. Every journey can become a research oriented adventure and a tax deductible event.
For example, you’ll see how when we reached retirement age, we slowed down our self publishing business but still earned $2,404725.98, tax free, over the next ten years.
Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax. As a publisher, you’ll have one of the most respected and tax protected businesses in the country. 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. The biggest benefits are the freedom, the independence to work wherever you choose in any field you desire.
The 2018 tax law means that you can create a publishing-to-sell business where you only pay tax on 80% of your income.
We created an entire system to help our readers have their own publish to sell 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 readers and have made millions, we still work at home and do not employ a single person. When we switched to online publishing to sell, we added one business partner, our webmaster, who created and runs our website. You’ll can learn how to do this in the course I am about to introduce.
May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.
The course teaches all you need to know on how to start and run your own publishing-to-sell business by yourself. The first lessons in the course answers your questions and get you started!
This course can put you well on your way to publishing to sell and give you the freedom to live wherever you choose! It covers the five secrets I mentioned above and the four additional secrets below:
Secret #6: How to gain 1,000% returns. See why some of the wealthiest families in the world today come from publishing. Learn how margins can be so incredible that few would believe them. This online course contains many case studies. Case Study #3 for example shows one publisher who sold an idea delivered on one photocopied page.

You’ll learn how to turn advertising dollars into a fortune. How to create your own ads. When to use classifieds, space ads, direct mail or word of mouth. See how to build a PR list and get thousands of dollars in free publicity. I share my most secret results on recent mailings so you will know why sometimes you sell more units of a publication at $49 instead of $29. I show how one couple used ads about retirement to supplement their retirement income and get free trips all over the world.
Secret #8: When to print, how to print and when to go online only. How to print and fulfill. Learn how to cut your printing bill in half by asking for quotes differently.

Merri and I have proven this! The secrets in the course include a step-by-step approach on what to do. Our partner, the internet expert includes what you need to know for online publishing.
The course contains information on how to use computers and the Internet for your publishing business. For example you will learn how I have eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars of printing and postage by switching all of my business onto the net. We unlock all the secrets of publishing so you can have increased lasting income and reduced taxation. This course is perfect for those with great computer skills and can help you learn how to focus these skills into a profitable publishing business.
However, the course also helps computer illiterates like myself and shows how to get your computer work done with no upfront cost.
I have created this course in an easy to understand style. Everything is explained what to do in vivid detail. We share all, how we have done it ourselves. The course is full of publishing ideas and case studies. You’ll learn about a pilot who published a book on the best airport cafes. All his flying became tax deductible!
You’ll see how one couple who loved an island wrote a guide on the place and made enough to buy a home on the beach there.
Another made millions with one simple legal idea.
I give names, resources and addresses of contacts in marketing, printing, plus attorneys, accountants, Internet whiz kids who can give help.
This course is not theoretical. It describes on a step-by-step basis, how Merri and I built a million dollar international business in just 7 years and how you can do the same.
The course is designed so you can get your own publishing-to-sell business going, full or part time right away. I’ll explain how and why by sharing one other amazing experience that makes this special offer available for you now so you can have the course for pennies on the dollar.
I have previously exposed this idea only to my readers and never to the general public. We conducted a course charging $2,000. Here are raves from delegates who have used our course.
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 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 the cost!”
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 have been overwhelmed by how much the course helped so we conducted another course and recorded it. We then reproduced it in written form so it can be delivered entirely online at a huge reduction. Though many readers have paid up to $2,000 for this course, you can start for only $299.

See how you can start with only a very small amount of money, work as little as four hours a day (if you are operating full time) even less if you start part time. Learn how two of my publishing friends, one an M.D.-the other a pilot ran their own money letters.
