Today is the Labor Day holiday in America. Happy Labor Day.
I love writing and also laboring in my garden.
Many small business owners love Labor Day and all holidays because business slows down and they can do extra work and get caught up… or maybe even ahead.
Why in the world would someone be happy that they get to do extra work on a holiday?
Because they love the type of labor they do.
This is why the theme in our writing courses is to be global, easy and turn your passion into profit.
Labor Day is a big day. Perhaps it should be a greater celebration than it is .
Labor is defined in the dictionary as “1. a. Physical or mental exertion, especially when difficult or exhausting; work.
How wrong can one be! Labor is giving…a part of the human existence that we need more than we can imagine. The universe is a process of receiving and giving.
We give with our labor… be it physical, mental or emotional and it is part of our condition to give.
I saw the truth of this in action over a decade ago in Ecuador, when the Ecuadorian economy stopped. The country ran out of gas. All the banks were closed and accounts frozen.
Yet everyone… (almost all)… came to work… even though there was no money, no transportation to work and they knew they would not get paid.
Hotel workers showed up for work… even though there was no salary check.
Workers like these fisherman who parked their boats in front of the Pacific condo we owned, kept right on working even though their money and ability to be paid were gone.
The sight was unbelievable. The Pan American Highway (there was no gas/fuel so no buses, no cars, no trucks, no traffic) was filled with people walking to work.
This is when the realization hit me. People want to work. We humans need to give. This is half of our natural existence… to give along with the need to take. This is the universal principle give…take…give…take.
Give and take, are each parts of the whole. They go together and when either is lost or missing, a great imbalance begins. Labor is the lack of slavery and dependence.
It’s as bad to just receive without giving as it is to work without receiving.
On Labor Day I like to share a poem by the great poet, Khalil Gibran. He stated this thoughts about labor better than I in his poem (one of my favorites) The Prophet.
Here is that part of the poem with Merri’s and my best wishes for a fulfilling Labor Day.
You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the soul of the earth.
For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons, and to step out of life’s procession, that marches in majesty and proud submission towards the infinite.
When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music.
Which of you would be a reed, dumb and silent, when all else sings together in unison?
Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune.
But I say to you that when you work, you fulfill a part of earth’s furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born,
And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life,
And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.
But if you in your pain call birth an affliction and the support of the flesh a curse written upon your brow, then I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash away that which is written.
You have been told also life is darkness, and in your weariness you echo what was said by the weary.
And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge,
And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge,
And all knowledge is vain save when there is work,
And all work is empty save when there is love;
And when you work with love, you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.
And what is it to work with love?
It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.
It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.
It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit.
It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit,
And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching.
Often have I heard you say, as if speaking in sleep, “He who works in marble, and finds the shape of his own soul in the stone, is a nobler than he who ploughs the soil.
“And he who seizes the rainbow to lay it on a cloth in the likeness of man, is more than he who makes the sandals for our feet.”
But I say, not in sleep but in the over-wakefulness of noontide, that the wind speaks not more sweetly to the giant oaks than to the least of all the blades of grass;
And he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving.
Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine.
And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.
The greatest asset of all is the ability to labor at what you love wherever you live. This brings everlasting wealth.
Merri and I wish you wonderful labors wherever you are.
Make a Difference & EarnLive anywhere. Earn everywhere. Make a difference. Tell Your Story.
Here is a Boomer special offer. Get my Writing and Self Publishing course. Pay any amount you feel you can afford.
Learn how to earn high income in your own back yard. Choose where you want that back yard to be.
You can create a lifestyle that you previously could only dream regardless of your age.
Gain 3 powerful benefits when you choose to become a writer:
Benefit #1: Freedom. 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. One writer who used our course says that this is one of his favorite benefits.
You don’t have to ask permission to take time off to attend your children or grandchildren’s sporting events, concerts, plays or any other event. You have 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. Being able to fit your business to circumstances can sometimes be the most important benefit of all. A writer who had just started her self publishing business when their daughter was diagnosed with bone cancer. During her daughter’s hospitalization she was able to be there 24/7… yet continue to write. She told me… “This is one of the BEST reasons for writing, the freedom to work from the hospital room on your laptop and be there when your child needs you the most”.
Benefit #2: You become part of the solution, not part of the problem. There is so much bad news that we are powerless to change or stop. You have a story to tell and in so doing can help others learn from your experience.
Benefit #3: You gain respect. Writers are the people who bring the information to the rest of the world in an information era. They are the ones who affect change and because of this, have a tremendous amount of power.
You can earn and enjoy these benefits writing about almost any subject you choose.
Here are few stories of how writers have used what they learned to take small steps that led to greater control, increased success and incredible fulfillment in their lives.
Barry Weinhold sent this note: We were successful authors before attending the Writer’s Camp, with our first book published in 1989 selling over 200,000 print copies. With the tips from your course last fall, we have published six new ebooks in Kindle format that are now available at Amazon.com.
Thanks for helping us get the word out about Barry’s 2-part Breaking Family Patterns series. Janae has also released her 3-part Con Job series.
We’ve co-authored “How To Break Free of the Drama Triangle and Victim Consciousness.”
Our monthly royalty checks are now coming in and we are very pleased with the response to our new books (656 books sold and 1295 free downloads in seven months). We have six more new ebooks in the pipeline for publication. Our goal is to publish twelve new ebooks by our one-year course anniversary. We couldn’t have published this quickly without the great support we received from your Writer’s Camp. We highly recommend it to anybody seeking the fast track to becoming independent self-publisher.
Self Publishers can also write in more than one niches.
Nickolette Goff writes non fiction in two niches. After attending a Writer’s Camp Nicki used what she had learned to help promote her first book… a Quinoa recipe cookbook with 13 recipes. She had 10,000 downloads of the book in five days and obtained dozens of good reviews!
You can get 13 more great quinoa recipes in Nicki Goff’s book at the links below.
She wrote: Hi, Gary, Book sales are actually going well, and I’m having a lot of fun with this. I’m so grateful to you and Merri for pushing me to get some action going!
The free promos really get things going, and seem to reignite sales.
Two more in the works – both on gardening topics. Best wishes for 2013 to you and Merri. Love, Nicki
What a joy seeing how helping and connecting people helps self publishers create their own special success. How beautiful to see friends turn their passions into profit!
Nicki learned at the camp that getting these downloads is step three in a seven step process. We (and others) have been helping Nicki and our delegates walk through these steps so they can earn income through writing and publishing again and again.
Nicki is now well on her way to wonderful self publishing success. She just completed her fourth book in a totally different genre gardening. This book is “Under Cover Gardening”.
She used the three day writers program to apply to marketing her Kindle books. Read about Nicki’s new book here.
Nicki wrote: Gary: My book was downloaded exactly 6000 times during the 3 days, and is selling around 5 per day right now. I’m very pleased with the results – three 5* reviews so far. Nicki
Chances are that most books you write will not be a best seller. However Nicki’s books show the process that you use to create a steady income as you build inventory. She is publishing numerous books in each of the genres she loves. This creates extra income and added inventory.
To sum this up… you can use our course to learn the importance of writing for your niche, even though it may be unusual.
You can also self publish at any age. A number of our friends who have used our writers course to self publish are in their 70s and 80s.
Here is how we can serve you.
Merri and I have had a long career in writing and self publishing.
You can write in numerous ways on a hobby, sport, profession or any interest you have. What do you love? Rare cars? You can earn writing 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!
Writing can also help you travel, even have an international lifestyle so you can live anywhere and still earn everywhere. This is especially valuable if you love to travel. For example, one shrewd writer realized that Panama was a great place to live and published information on Panama.
Other writers reaped rich rewards selling information on their own country. Merri and I, for example, lived in Europe for years, then fell in love with Ecuador for 15 years. We earned by writing about our experiences there.
Now in our 70s, we live in Smalltown USA. We love the peace and quiet, are closer to our children and grandchildren. We still write (and publish) about what we love and are doing! In each phase of our lives, the idea of tight focus has allowed us to move and live where we desired.
Imagine what writing 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.
Many benefits come in the form of reduced tax. As a writer, 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.
May I introduce you to our course, “SELF-FULFILLED – How to Be a Publisher to Sell”.
Pay any amount you can afford.
Merri and I created an entire system to help our readers have their own writing business. This system is unique because my wife, Merri, and I are unique. We started our self 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 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.

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!

Another made millions with one simple legal idea.

The course is designed so you can get your own writing, self publishing 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 in person, we developed a course online that is only $299.
During this special however Boomers can pay any price they feel they can afford.
