Success Guidelines

A few success guidelines can help you always find light at the end of a tunnel.

How to successfully recognize, embrace and take advantage of change.


Little Horse Creek at our North Carolina farm.

Change is accelerating.  Those who embrace change will have great opportunity.
Those who do not accept the reality of evolving societies and economies are likely to suffer.

Have trust in ourselves is the only answer! Our own personal ability to adapt and serve in an ever changing and more rapidly changing world is our greatest asset.

Here’s a way to regain control of your life.

When it comes to big government and big business “might seems to be right”.  The world has become a better place for a few people, but every change seems to favor the wealthy few.  For example Warren Buffett, at the annual shareholders meeting of his business, said that the new health care overhaul is “a huge tax cut for guys like me”.

Plus you may have read health care company’s systems to make patients look sicker than they are and give staff bonuses for increased profit but no bonuses for better health outcomes.

For most of us, our quality of life, our freedom, our security  (physical and financial) and our health are under attack.

There are three huge and growing problems that can ruin our freedom, as well as our bank accounts, over the next three years.

(Gary Scott speaking at international investing seminar.)

My name is Gary Scott.  I am best known as one of the first investment writers to recommend overseas investing…. 49 years ago.

For more than four decades I lived, worked and invested around the world leading readers and investors to investments beginning in  Hong Kong and Asia, then London, Switzerland, Isle of Man, Austria, Eastern Europe, Dominican Republic and Ecuador.

Today I am more often found in Smalltown, USA.   When you learn why I chose a simpler, low stress but lucrative life outside America’s big cities, you can gain more control, greater freedom and enjoy a richer life with increased financial security close to home.

Learn how to regain control of your life from three valuable reports, based on my 49 years of experience, on how to have better health, more freedom and increased, safer wealth.

Our lives are in special peril due to a barrage of threats against the well being, liberty and happiness of the middle class.

First, US Federal debt is no longer repayable.  No one expects any government to pay off its debts.  The problem is the growing costs of debt service.  US debt rose to 10 trillion dollars in the first 218 years of the nation.  Then from 2008 to now the debt almost doubled.  American debt service was still okay but only because of low interest rates.  Paying 2% interest on $20 trillion of debt is better than paying 5% on $10 trillion.  Now as interest rates rise, the rising cost of debt service will put stress on the government’s ability to pay for important services like education, infrastructure, law enforcement, research, defense, Social Security, Medicare, and such.

Second, due to the first problem, our pensions are at risk.  Members of Congress, who are protected by their own pension system that taxpayers fund for federal employees, are looking at ways to reduce the benefits of 401(k) and similar retirement plans, that help so many of us.

One former assistant secretary of labor, who is now partner in a law firm that specializes in pensions, recently stated in a Wall Street Journal article “It’s not really a question of whether retirement plans will get a haircut, but of how much”.

Third, our internet access is at risk.  In recent times, the Internet has been the most people’s greatest weapon for stopping big business and big government abuse.

Big businesses and government act like people don’t matter any more?   The only leverage we had, the threat of taking our business elsewhere, or changing our vote, has pretty well gone up in smoke!  We are caught in a “take it or leave it, you’re just a number caught in a system” rat race.

Has big government, big pharma, health care or big business ever made you feel metaphorically dragged off the plane because its inconvenient for them to serve you?  Are you concerned that your representative in government is more concerned about his welfare than yours?  Do you worry that your bank and credit card company are looking to rip you off rather than build up your savings?  Have you stopped complaining, because no one seems to care whether you are a satisfied customer or not?  Do you accept lousy service because there is no better choice?  Have you had to wait and wait on the phone or in a line to be served by anyone, a government official, doctor or service representative?

In this modern world, where markets are global and technology replaces people- we have become numbers, rather than human beings.  This is a world where promises are continually broken.  We are told that our call is important when we are put on hold, but then been treated as if its not.

Be prepared for our lack of control to become worse.  Most of the middle class will lose even more privacy and control over their lives because a change in net neutrality means we are just numbers for sale.

Let me share some horrors that the end of net neutrality could bring.  Then let’s look at a three step program that you and I and a select few others can use to gain to avoid this trap.

When all traffic on the Internet is not treated equally,  big broadband providers control what we can watch, for how long and even what data will go viral.  The end of net neutrality ends the benefits we currently enjoy as individuals.   At first, it will appear to offer us benefits.  We’ll get some special services, such as unlimited video streaming.

Here is the catch.

Powerful corporations can silence our voices when net neutrality ends.  Our  phone,  Internet, TV, phone provider will be able to silence anything they decide is a dissenting or unprofitable voice.  Your Internet provider can slow down your connection or make you pay more if you use rival competitive services.  In the worst example it’s possible that a PETA-controlled Internet provider could throttle connectivity due to the fact you looked at a hunting site or vice versa an NRA controlled provider could throttle connectivity if you were looking at a PETA site.

Even worse, new regulations now, already, make our  Internet records the property of the provider  (AT&T, Verizon, etc.).  They can sell and use us, as they see fit.  Your ISP provider can look at what sites you visit. They can use what they see to profile you and can sell this profile to advertisers or any other entity who wants to influence or know more about you.  Television companies know which TV programs you view, which ads you watch.  Phone companies know who you call and even which words you say in those calls.

All of this information can be sold to the highest bidder.  Our privacy is auctioned off, going, going, pretty much gone.  Yet the erosion can get worse!

Our finances could be ruined by simply visiting the wrong websites.  For example, a health insurance provider could be informed (for a payment to the Internet provider) that you are looking at cigarette sites.  Your insurance premiums might rise.  The tax man could pay the provider to see how much you spend on the Internet.  An audit could begin.  Anyone can have a look at our spending patterns and shopping habits, who we talk to, what we say.

Triple Danger

The risk grows because huge mergers, such as the AT&T- Time-Warner deal create providers who control your Internet, phone, TV and even the content you see.  They can combine all the data, what you read, what you watch, what you hear and what you say, with whom.  It’s all for sale to business and government.

This control over our lives even allows them to decide what messages go viral or not.  For example, had United Airlines been a big client of one of the big Internet provider, that provider could have suppressed the video of David Dao being dragged from the United flight.  They could have slowed or stopped that video from going viral.

In recent years Merri and I have focused on three steps to survive a debt shakeout, the loss of infrastructure and destruction of rights and privacy.  The first step is to take care of one’s good health.

The second is the increase profits by creating multiple streams of income through micro businesses.  We kick start the entire process with a simpler life in Smalltown USA, or wherever, and have a micro business that offers a product or service that will be of value regardless of circumstances.   Merri and I are creating micro businesses doing things we love that are good for our community and that fulfill our lives.

Third, we increase the safety of our savings with slow moving good value, purposeful investments.

We do not give up anything by being prepared.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from the bad.  We pursue our passions in several small businesses and investments that create numerous small streams of income that pile up into a larger flows of cash.  There is an incredible new economy that’s opening up for those who learn how to start multi dimensional micro businesses.  This allows us to earn doing what we love.

I would like to offer you three valuable reports that introduces a family of like-minded souls who are looking to improve their lives by improving three basic qualities of real freedom.

#1: The first basic quality of real freedom is natural good health.   None of us can be truly free until we wrest ourselves from the grip of the expensive, big pharma fueled, health care system (aka disease management system).  If high insurance and medical costs continually drain our resources we stay trapped, broke and in debt.  Poor health and medical treatment can leave us robbed of energy or ambition.

To overcome this problem my wife,  Merri and I have been studying how to have natural health for over 45 years ago.  During four and a half decades, as we traveled the world, we have kept a continual watch and studied ancient health wisdoms that bring happiness, strength, flexibility and immunity from disease.

After decades of study with experts in Chinese and Indian medicine, Merri and I moved to Ecuador and lived and worked with an Andean shaman for years.

ecuador shamans

Here we are with an Andean shaman.

We learned that good health and longevity come from easy, low impact internal exercises, good nutrition and deep sleep so our bodies are fit and strong, our minds clear.  We even learned how to use special chants with frequencies that help relieve stress as they balance our most vital glands and organs.

This is why I want to offer you a special report “How Frequency Creates Everlasting Natural Health and Wealth”.   The report shares ideas about health you may have never seen before, like the fact that sound, such as frequencies used in chants and music can improve heart health as well as metal clarity and intelligence.   For example, in 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  The nitric oxide cycle, especially helps the heart.  It also increases energy and stamina, relieves stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.

Music therapists, Dr. John Beaulieu and Dr. George Stefano, neurologist, did research that shows that tuning forks at specific frequencies stimulate the production of nitric oxide in less than 30 seconds.

Because music is one of Merri’s and my passions, this report “How Frequency Creates Everlasting Natural Health and Wealth” shows how to integrate frequencies of special music, nutrition and exercise for a healthier, more energetic body and brighter, but relaxed mind.  Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to just listen to the right type of music  for heart health… instead of  hard jogging?

Plus the report proves that we can enhance longevity by living in rural settings.

According to a study at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, there is an amazing correlation between living in a home surrounded by greenery and longevity and mental health.

The study of more than 108,000 subjects across America found there was a 12 percent lower risk of death for those who lived in the greenest surroundings.

Subjects with the greenest vegetation around their homes were 34 percent less likely to die of a respiratory-related issue. They also found that those living in the greenest environments were 13 percent less likely to die of cancer.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  Subjects  living in the greenest environments were happier and less depressed.

I’ll share more about this report and why you can have it free in a moment.   First, let’s look at how good health and wealth go hand in hand.

#2: The second quality of real freedom is the ability to earn through service.

Have you ever wondered, “Do I matter as a person any more? ”  This is a life and death question and the hectic, inhumane, modern social structure, where we are simply numbers run through a system, can make us ask such a question.

It’s little wonder that many of us ask it.  The establishment, business, government, law enforcement,  health care,  education, everything big has grown so large and so computerized that we don’t seem to matter as human beings any more.

So many promises, from the purchasing power of our money, to savings, pensions, health care, social security, financial safety, and privacy, have all been broken many times.  No promise made by big business or big government can be trusted.  These national and global systems are simply focused on their bottom line of profit.  Their goals are for their interests only and are often inhumane.

It Is Fun & Fulfilling to Matter.

We can regain a true force of importance, fulfillment, wealth and freedom by serving others in a profitable way.  A multi dimensional micro business creates freedom as it redesigns your lifestyle by bringing profit, fulfillment and peace of mind, by helping others doing what you love.

We live in a fortunate era.  Throughout most of history, life expectancy and requirements of work meant that the most experienced sector of the work force was no longer physically able to continue.  In our high tech environment we have a chance to create our most important pinnacle career at a time when previously we would have retired.  This is the first time in mankind’s history when the value of our experience is worth more than the cost of getting it.

This is why I want to share the report “The Pruppie Factor” that shows how my wife and I (and how you can) moved to small town USA and created multiple streams of income around the world, and to run the businesses without employees from Smalltown USA.  I’ll explain “Pruppie” in more detail in a moment.   The “Pruppie Factor” report explains how you can create this type of financial security, how to base your businesses on your passions, whatever they may be: art, music, fishing, gardening, gold, science, mechanics, nature, sustainability… whatever interests you.

Learn how to make your home multi dimensional… a home AND a source of income.  This is important because multi dimensional homes help us escape the government’s broken promises.  History is littered with stories of serious national debt and economic problems that ruined pensions and retirees.  The burdens of debt and fiscal imprudence cause governments and societies to lose their ability to keep their promises.  Multi dimensional homes can help overcome the risks these conditions create.


I love agriculture and have a small commercial orange grove at our Florida home.

The report shows specific places in Smalltown USA where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier too.  Top this off with the fact that you gain tax benefits, especially under the propose tax reform.

You have to ask, “Where are these places?”

I would like to help you learn about some of these specific places.  More important I want to share what makes them special so you can spot special places near you that I may not know.

This is why I want to offer you this second valuable report, “The Pruppie Factor”.

As you will learn in this report, I became famous in a very small way by being one of the first writers and publishers to recommend global investing almost 50 years ago.

Everyone thought I was crazy then.  Then we led investors around the world.

 In 2009 after 49 years of residence, business and investing around the world, my wife and I returned to the the USA to enjoy a more carefree, simplified life in the countryside and Small-town USA.


Here I am at work at our Florida home.  No commuting required!

If you are thinking about a simpler life in Smalltown USA, you have made a good choice.  Merri and I could live anywhere we want, but have chosen to live in the USA and on properties in rather remote rural areas of Appalachia and Central Florida.

There are compelling reasons why you may want to make a similar choice, which could represent a rather dramatic, pleasant and rewarding change in your lifestyle.


Fishing is a passion so we have a small fish hatchery business that grows and sells trout.

The report “How Frequency Creates Everlasting Natural Health and Wealth” shows how to have increased longevity and better health.  “The Pruppie Factor” shows how to create multiple streams of income doing what you love.

But  I also want to give you one more valuable report, the “Good Value Asset Allocation Report” because the third quality is that once you have health that helps you build wealth, you’ll need a way to keep what you earn.

This immensely valuable 28 page report on asset allocation can help you keep the wealth you gain from multiple sources of income.  You learn how to increase profits and safety as a value investor.

Investing – Small – Slow and in Good Value

The lifestyles of Pruppies are about much more than money.   They are designed to integrate better health, multiple streams of income and everlasting wealth.

The “Good Value Asset Allocation Report” looks at how controlling costs, time and value in investing are the keys to keeping your savings and wealth.

The report shows how to avoid common investing mistakes.   For example, one of the most common mistakes investors make is trading too much.


Gary Scott being interviewed for TV at one of Europe’s largest currency trading halls in Copenhagen.

I have spent at lot of time in the trading halls of big European banks working with their trading experts.   This experience taught me several facts.

  • The traders are brilliant.
  • The traders have immense support and capital.
  • Trading is a zero sum game. Someone loses and someone wins.  There is no win-win in trading.
  • I do not want to trade against these well trained, well financed, brilliant experts. You should not either.
  • They are smarter than me, have deeper pockets and they have a system that stops them from being irrational.

However a huge number of investors trade because stockbrokers use two ideas that play on human nature and evoke irrational action.

  • One idea is scarcity… “get it now before it’s gone” comes first.  Or “buy this share before it is skyrocketing rise”.
  • The second idea is that its possible to  get something for nothing,

These ideas are wrong and can lead to investing disaster.

The “Good Value Asset Allocation Report”  shows how to create financial security through slow, low cost, low trades based on a relentless, math based search for good investment stock.

You can have “Good Value Asset Allocation Report” free, along with “The Pruppie Factor” and “How Frequency Creates Everlasting Natural Health and Wealth” FREE, when you order our report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Become a Pruppie!

May I coin a new word, Pruppie?

We all know about preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.  And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that our worlds have changed and for most of us, there is still great opportunity for a better lifestyle, yet the preppies could be right.

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, those who expect the world to get better and live and earn based on that expectation but enjoy a progressive lifestyle of freedom that also happens to prepare us for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper anyway.  We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in this report, you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?


You’ll even learn how to turn dining room tables into income and tax deductions as we have with these dining room tables we build out of local wood.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers the American Dreibund has planned for the public.  The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, has continued to grow.  There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also works well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.  This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it can become.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back year.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land  that is extraordinarily cheap.

Ginseng growing in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report.

There are are specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increase your income, make you smarter, healthier and provide tax benefits as well. 

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (aka health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three plants that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

My Guarantee

This may be the most important report I have written in 50 years.  The information is certainly the most urgent.  Do not delay.  The risks are upon us right now and you’ll understand how the final steps of the alliance are taking place as you read the current news.

When you order “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”, you also receive  the three reports  “How Frequency Creates Everlasting Natural Health and Wealth” and “The Pruppie Factor” and the “Good Value Asset Allocation Report” FREE.

Full satisfaction or your money back. You can keep the reports as my thanks for ordering it.  What could be fairer than that?

I imagine that about right now, you are waiting for the penny to drop.  “What is the catch?” you might ask.  “Three reports free that won’t cost a single penny and a full guarantee?”

You are wise to be cautious in such a cynical world, but there is no penny to drop and there is a simple answer why we are offering you the three reports free,

Merri and I are in our 70s.  We feel healthier and more energetic than 49 years ago.  I might not be wiser… but am more experienced and seem in a better position than when I took my first trip to to start a business in Hong Kong in 1968 over 49 years ago.

In those decades, we have accumulated more wealth than we will probably spend, but we still enjoy serving and want to share what we have gained so we can help others gain increased freedom and a happier life.

However, we are not interested in treating those we share with like numbers so we want to refine and contain our readership to like minded souls, whom we like and enjoy.

We offer these three reports so you’ll get to know us better and see if our thinking is anything like yours.  These reports will give you a good idea how we can serve you… or not and if you don’t like what we offer, it’s really simple to never hear from us again.

Because we focus on creating profit and remaining small (just Merri, me and our webmaster, David Cross, run the business from our homes) we can afford to share our most basic values free so you can get to know us better.

Merri, and I look forward to a future as Pruppies.  We look forward to sharing our expectations with you!
