17 of 2001 | Do Wide Open Free Dating Clubs on Facebook with No Gatekeeper in 2014

Are you tired of fake profiles, old pictures, and pitches to spend money on Dating sites that act as gatekeepers and charge you to access your messages?

Local dating in person can be facilitated on Facebook

I ask you: what do these dating sites have that cannot be done in a Facebook group?  Nothing, thats what!

Facebook’s guidelines and rules are way better for protecting your privacy and controlling access to your information than any dating site, and it’s huge and  free!

Here n Pagosa Springs, Colorado, and all over the world in small communities, existing dating sites do not work well, and the pool of acceptable matches is not diverse enough for the hook-ups to happen; and that is why they are riddled with fake profiles and questionable revenue tactics.

It is time for these self-serving middlemen to go the way of the behemoth lead generators who mess up the online marketplace by dominating the organic search results and by driving the price of PPC advertising through the roof!

These sites really offer nothing that cannot be done easily in an open Facebook group, except to extract money from you!

Added to a local community social networking blog to feed the Facebook group with local content and local people, who can fill up a bar with paying customers on an off night when they show up to meet people,  dating for all of us “displaced singles” of all ages can be fun again, and ridiculously inexpensive.

We are going to start one here in Pagosa Springs and schedule regular events!

Even at meetup.com, the largest and oldest meetup site, there are no singles  groups in Pagosa Springs, and none within 90 miles of Coos Bay Oregon, for instance…but our own Facebook groups are in the hundreds or thousands in every town that we are in, and we sell local advertising on the blogs to local businesses who want to reach our audience, creating a full time living for many of us, and very cost-effective social media advertising for local businesses:

Examples of our local ‘Social Networking Facebook’ groups where we have not even added or promoted any dating:

With access to thousands of locals, I am sure such a dating “Club” will be a very effective addition to our existing blogs and groups.

We are going to use a model I have seen used successfully for business networking:

  • Nothing to fill out, just show up with $5.00
  • As often or rarely as you like – no contract
  • The $5.00 to join and $5.00 per meeting are used to facilitate the meeting place, and discounted drinks, food, entertainment and other refreshments at local bars and restaurants.
  • Everyone gets a 20 second introduction, that is the only structure, then we just network!
  • Create a local group where we are not yet there, and get a free personal blog and training to make a full time local living in social media marketing.
  • A key advantage is that you can add your friends to Facebook groups easily, click click, and they need not do anything – that and strong moderation are the secrets to growing a group!

With all of our families now mixed up, and people not living in one place where they grew up, such local networking groups can become the “new tribe” model that modern sociologists and psychologists believe is needed to bring disconnected people back into society and provide a robust social environment conducive to hook-ups and commerce for divorcees of all ages like me, whose orphaned siblings and own children are scattered across the US.

As a mater of fact, you can join our brand new Pagosa Springs, CO group right now, wherever you are, to meet someone, move here to paradise with low cost of living like I have; or just study our new model as it develops, for $5.00 – and if you want to be a blogger or start a group on this model in your town, even sell advertising to local businesses who want to reach the audience, and create local content with your very own blog, I will give it to you at (YOURNAME).UPLOG.ORG, with training, to try out for 90 days, for free! (No additional charge, just $5.00)

All of our blogs come up on Google search immediately like this:
‘pagosa springs social network’ Google search results

The free blog and training applies only to the first 50 takers, Because I do the SEO training myself, and I am only one man – now is the time to get started in Social Media for $5.00:

New Business Lifestyles
Thanks to the BBC for this Image..

In 2014 rapid change in the way that business are structured, taxed, staffed, managed, and advertised will continue to level the playing field, especially if we (small business owners and entrepreneurs) wake up!

The middle class (other than government employees) is gone.  Our country, once powered and paid for by a hard working men and women who supported and paid for oversized government and waste, is now in trouble financially.

We have exported good jobs and imported finished goods for so many years now, so that we basically have three classes:

1.  The working poor

2.  Government Employees

3.  The independently wealthy.

There is always opportunity for profit in change, and even in chaos, if you can see where things are headed, and get there just before the majority wakes up the the change.  In these times, that opportunity exists in spades, especially for those who embrace the changes that others are resisting.

For instance: compare the combined viewership of the top 20 prime-time TV Series and the cost of reaching that audience, to the cost of a strong Youtube presence, and the amazing viewership thereof:

Now examineYoutube reach:

Youtube Statistics from Youtube:

Viewership:

  • More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month
  • Over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth, and 50% more than last year
  • YouTube is localized in 56 countries and across 61 languages
  • According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network!

When you add to these statistics, the fact that over half of us, myself included, can now work from home, without traveling anywhere, and we can literally live almost anywhere, and work anywhere else; you begin to comprehend the huge extent to which these factors will change our lives in the next few years.

Imagine a world where everybody is an independent contractor;

A world where the technology aided ‘techno-markets’ become  so perfect because of the lack of fat, overhead, corruption, and administrative overhead of today, that it is a pure labor market, for whatever it is that you can do, from wherever you choose to live.  That day can come quicker than you think!

As an American, you already have at least rudimentary English and typing skills, some computer knowledge, and a knowledge of our current culture and trends, so you are now in business, being yourself!  If that sounds far-fetched, wake the ___ up!  We can do anything we can imagine doing!

WE THE PEOPLE ARE STILL IN CHARGE IF WE TAKE CONTROL

We can use social networking technology to set up our own local barter networks to obtain everything that we need.  Local hotshots can haul anything anywhere.  I ask you to imagine what would happen if we all just dropped out of debt completely?  It is not that hard: aided by modern solar and other technologies, and fed when need be (machines, computers) by the existing structure, large numbers of us could simply invent a less expensive, and more fulfilling lifestyle, IMO.  And I am not alone:

According to this article: http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/living-off-the-grid.htm:

“It’s impossible to get an accurate count of exactly how many people in the United States live off-grid, but in 2006, Home Power magazine estimated that more than 180,000 homes were supplying their own power. Another 27,000 homes use solar and wind energy to offset their grid-connected life [source: USA Today]. The back-to-the-land movement accounts for some of these numbers, but more people in developed urban areas are looking to get off the grid as well. For most, it’s a good way to be friendly to the environment. For others, it’s a relief not to rely on overworked utility companies to meet their needs.”

According to Wikipedia,

On 13 April 2006, USA Today reported that there were “some 180,000 families living off-grid, a figure that has jumped 33% a year for a decade,” and cited Richard Perez, publisher of Home Power Magazine,[6] as the source.[7] Assuming the same rate of growth, there would be a quarter million off-grid households in the United States by late 2007. Because many Third World citizens have never had the chance to go on the grid, current estimates are that 1.7 billion people live off-grid worldwide.[8]

As someone who is old enough to remember how easy and fulfilling it was without all these technological advances to raise, can, butcher, and prepare my own food, I can tell you then with modern solar collectors, pumps, lights, and electronics married to old fashioned black barrels; from wood stoves to modern  gardening techniques, there is absolutely no reason why we cannot feed and clothe ourselves without feeding so much to The Man!!

US Tax Structure favors the smallest of businesses – the sole proprietorship:

By paying our taxes online, we can all be independent 1099 businesses, work from home, deduct much, and pay absolutely nothing in taxes, completely legally, I have done it for years, without cheating.

My advice: become the proprietor of your own labor in 2014.

Small business people built this country, and we can reclaim it.

15 of 1001 | Do Business With Your Competitors Customers in 2014 – and now

This is how your competitors clients are fed to you…

http://b2bhomebusinessnetworknews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/1001ways.png

Do you have the right to compare yourself to your direct competitors in a public forum?

The short answer is yes, as long as you are honest.  It is safest simply to compare features and prices.   Design your business plan to allow this to convert your competitors customers:

Do Business With Your Competitors Customers in 2014 – and now

The art and science of the competitive comparison down and dirty:

When you run a Google search for ‘Fast Track ISO 9001 Certification Houston Texas‘,  there are three main players with credibility and size:

1. Qualaco – ‘fast track’  ISO 9001 Quality Control Experts – Certification Guaranteed
2. http://www.masquality.com/ - no Guarantee but great rankings. 3. http://iso9001group.com/ - again no guaranteee but great Google rankings.

Thus the reason for this post: our client, Qualaco – ‘fast track’  ISO 9001 Quality Control Experts – Certification Guaranteed, is the only one who guarantees results, with a 10,000,000 bond to back it up!  Considering the cost of such services, it is a “no-brainer!”

14 of 1001 – Social Media Optimization for 2014 Now

Social Media is now MainstreamI have heard of prices ranging from a full time position for an in-house employee, to hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month for help with social media profiles, rankings, link authority, publishing, blogging, websites, groups, list building, website design and social media marketing and branding in general.  You can throw a rock and hit several starving self-proclaimed social media marketing professionals. Being in social media does not make you a professional marketer or advertiser.

What is hard to find in this market, is:

  • Clearly defined services
  • Clearly defined strategy
  • Clearly defined specs
  • Clearly defined fee splits and prices
  • Clearly defined performance standards
  • Clarity in general

Clarity:

I am published many places and many times on these topics, including, but not limited to DZone, Yahoo News… and these existing published  properties are the source of my power.1001 Ways to do Business E-book

The way this works is that a professional can build link-authority on a topic and/or a geographical area, simply by publishing slightly more and slightly better content,  properly optimized and formatted.  This is easier to do than you think.

Wide-open, free-for-all media, with little or no moderation or gatekeepers, is obviously what we all prefer ( as evidenced by the fact that Youtube is bigger than all four M.S.M networks combined – CBS, FOX, CNN, ABC).  This intentional authority ranking can be done, and is being done on purpose, by a select savvy few, while the rest of you procrastinate and get your proverbial asses kicked daily.

I can prove this over 1000 times easily, from my brand new blog here in Pagosa Springs Colorado (pagosa springs social network Google search) to my page I put up all the way back in 2007 to make a point (real estate social media advertising Google search) it is simply a matter of knowing what to do and then doing it.

Maybe you wonder why any local business would want to reach everybody in town who is looking for the local newspaper, or a social network?  Consider what that broad reach would have cost ten years ago!  Consider also, that everybody is interested in something local or niche, but that one only needs, for instance, a Realtor a few times in a lifetime.  For me, I will cal the guy with the biggest blog presence!  That is my kind of real estate professional!  Nobody wants to do business with the old low tech guy (or gal)  in any business, if they are smart.

I am an expert on this topic: “social media advertising agency“, just ask Youtube Search!

In my world, and in this market, all that really matters is:

1.  What have you done lately?

2.  Can you prove it? (Example: disruptive guerrilla tactics)

I am here to tell you that what I do, and what so many other “social media marketers” claim to do, has become a specialty, requiring link-authority, property, a knowledge base, and time commitment in order to maintain that power.

For instance, any of you can be the ‘local news advertising agency’ for your city and state according to Google, with my help; https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=local+news+advertising+agency

Our properties have power to rank your real estate website for searches owned and controlled otherwise by Realtor.com, Zillo, and the like… without doing what they do; without making a page that is populated with your peers (1A thru Z) outrank yours for your proper name search!

Buyer beware of content aggregates like ActiveRain.com, who’s new owners obviously understand none of this. Nobody is looking for a page populated a-z by salespeople, as evidenced by the very high bounce rate on these pages. There are many outdated products and services on the market which are actually detrimental to their buyers.

While you may be able to master some portion of this on your own, you cannot compete with a full-time professional for niche or geographical searches.  Those of us who have been far-sighted and hard working, actually own Internet Real Estate and authority, and you can do this also, both on a smaller scale for your geographic or niche topic, and also to build a profession in a field of expertise helping others.

Our content aggregate at http://uplog.org is simply WordPress Multisite, but three years of content and over 130 linked together active blogs is almost impossible to catch up with or compete with.  Some of what I, and people like me can do for you, you are not likely to do for yourself.  I am not doing it for free, but you may be really surprised just how inexpensive it is.

In the interest of further organizing this emerging market that I all but invented, we have developed the following system for organized fees and splits for needed services: we pay 30% for sales, 30% for content creation, and 30% for setup and graphics.  UpLog.org agency gets 10% net.

Read these descriptions and specs of services and prices before you pay more, for less:

1. Basic Social Media Optimization -

this can be done on any scale.  We charge $150 for three optimized profiles of your choice, and our special strategic training – Three hours counting the setup and training:

Quick Social Media Setup

Los Angles County Social Network Blog

2. Community Social Blog and Facebook Group Setup and Blast

Just $300 puts your message out and keeps you on top of the world  exclusively for what you do where you do it for 90 days; and an optional $175 keeps your listing, links and postings on the blog for at least one year if you post weekly (play to pay).  Optional ongoing promotion exclusive at $1000/year.

3. Social Media Domination: Set it and forget it!

COMPLETE SOCIAL SEARCH AND REPUTATION MANAGEMENT BUNDLE:

Adds PHP list opt-in newsletter setup first month, monthly blast to any list thereafter: dominates search engines and three social networks of choice; builds opt-in ezine list for client.
(We use all of our resources and our audience to get things going tastefully)  $500 down includes PHP List setup, initial list building and invitation,  and initial blast.  $300 month maintains an ongoing campaign in perpetuity.
When you add these (above) services to the occasional custom website, you have an honorable and needed profession in the marketing and advertising industry.

In closing, many companies offer similar services, with less detail and higher prices.  Ask for proof before you buy.  One social network and Facebook group like the ones that we build can feed to many local or niche clients everybody in town eventually.  As the budget grows, the blog and groups become larger with the larger budget for other forms of marketing.

You actually can not separate social media optimization from the impact it has on actual results from all other forms of marketing, and the actual retention of some return from those other activities.

101 – Social Media Optimization for 2014 Now – or let me do it for you!

 

 

13 of 1001 | Outsource vs Hire In-House – Set-it and Forget it in 2014

It never ceases to amaze me that perfectly intelligent, experienced, high level business managers who are so savvy in other areas make this critical mistake: they hire kids fresh out of college to handle their social media marketing, on a full time salary, with all the expense that involves, in-house.
Kids in business controlling advertising budgets

These kids have no business experience, no life experience, and the courses they took were outdated before the professor got his degree, much less taught the course!

They cost ten times more than any professional agency woudl charge to do the work of managing social media advertising (for instance, we do a complete Facebook, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn, and opt-in E-zine ongoing email list building campaign for as little as $300 month), and these kids usually do not do as good a job, are not motivated by the bottom line, and are not as accountable to their less tech savvy bosses .

When you ad the human cost of hiring, supervising and managing such employees, and the insurance liability, medical and otherwise, it is just plain stupid to do this in-house, but that’s is not all!   A professional agency can aggregate content and Link-authority and reach and audience and reach and lists on behalf of their clients addressing similar markets, further enhancing their ability to provide better exposure for less.

Often, the culprit is a less tech savvy in-house manager trying to hide his own outdated skill-set.  Wake up owners!

12 of 1001 | Considering A Sustainable Lifestyle Move? 323 207 0151

How does one make a huge decision like moving to a new state or new country? What are the steps that need to be taken to assure a “good” decision, as much as it is possible? Well … let’s explore this together!
What's next? (323) 207-0151
Wide Open Unknown Adventure

I’m taking the leap myself, and as a professional Counselor and Coach, I am using all the tools I know to make myself comfortable and stay excited about the adventure ahead instead of falling prey to the fear of the unknown. I’ll share as I go, ok?

My first thoughts were of what I want my life to be like; how I want it to be different than it currently is. What I mean by that is, that I have noticed as I mature, that constantly running in high gear to keep up, to be involved, to grow my business, to maintain a social life, to meet the demands of society as they constantly change, feels like more and more pressure. Can I just say I’m tired of the same old rat race? And more importantly I don’t see it slowing down or becoming easier over time. So … I began thinking about moving out of the country where life seems easier and less stressed – for me.

The internet is helpful to say the least. I found an ex-patriot organization that provides reports on cost of living, medical services, infrastructure and all sorts of things and joined that for their reports and updates. I checked into their forums and subscribed to their magazine and watched tons of videos on local rentals and lifestyles for expats. I google mapped towns of interest and took virtual trips with google earth tours. That was fun.

But as I became acclimated to these tools and interactions I became confused and worried. Leaving friends and family behind to go live with foreign speaking, unfamiliar lifestyles, on my own was daunting and quelled my spirited enthusiasm some. So I did my due diligence.

I meditated, prayed, queried myself deeply. It seemed obvious I had to understand in reality what I was willing to let go of and what I wasn’t, because even with that clearly answered, there would always be unknown issues in foreign lands that I could not know ahead of time. Having moved from California to Texas when I was young and pregnant with my first born, gave me some insight as to how it feels to be up against intolerable scenarios without familiar surroundings and influences. What I know now is, that it is good to know yourself better than I did at 21!

So, step 1 in a process like making a huge move to an unknown place is, PLAY WITH IT! Go shopping and pay close attention to your internal feelings and reactions to what you find in your research.

For instance, I love Greece. Greece Fell in love with it’s exquisite beauty on a visit years ago and have always wanted to go back and spend some serious time lounging in that atmosphere. But, when I think about living there – waking up there every morning, going shopping there, building a long term, daily life there I found myself feeling foreign, out of place. I mean, feeling like an outsider visiting. I could not imagine being a resident long term and being comfortable. I couldn’t feel it being my home. Having grown up in California which is majorly Mexican in flavor, it was obvious to me that I feel very comfortable with the Latin culture, generally.

Nicaragua
Granada, Nicaraugua

Follow that internal search for a while. It will help you sort out your personal values: what’s important to you and what isn’t; what you know you need and what you can live without. How much difference can you tolerate and how much similarity do you need, to make somewhere new your home? Be realistic. Think about the mundane of your life, not just the excitement of your grand new idea. Think about the things you never think about or take for granted.

One day, having been in deep, internal conversation with myself on the subject, for a while now, I noticed an invitation to join an Intentional Sustainable Community. Wow! That triggered an immediate, response that quickly turned into action. I called the number listed expecting to leave a message. But no. suddenly I was in a conversation with a man that spoke my language (literally and figuratively) and we were engrossed in a lengthy exploration of the situation.

This was really resonating with me even though geographically it held no previous appeal. The attention I had given my inner responses was informing me quickly that geography is not the major feature of what I’m looking for! I’m not running away from society. I’m looking for a gentle freedom. I’m not looking for a hide out away from the world. My nature is one of helping, influencing, learning, teaching, expanding and making a positive difference in the world … hence my profession, eh? I love people energy and I want simplicity and ease with enough freedom to enjoy each day. I want to LIVE… don’t you?

So, without throwing out my plan to move to South America, I have made an informed decision to do a big “practice move” first. This allows me to commit myself to major change in every way except language and without dealing with immigration and foreign residency issues.

I’m joining this Intentional Sustainable Community in the Colorado high desert where I will have to learn many new ways of being and doing, in an environment foreign to me, with people that are like me: committed to making a better life for themselves and others. A model if you will, of what we can do, right here in this country if we want to. It is centered around an Internet Advertising Company, a Destination Wedding and Corporate Retreat Center

This Community offers unlimited work, a small town that is newly dedicated to growing in a sustainable way with high standards, excellent ethics and common values. I’ll make new friends, be involved in new growth and fulfill my personal need to simplify my life and my work, by finding new ways to do what I do! We’re building restaurants, housing, hospitality services, hydroponic organic gardens and whatever YOU bring to the table too! Sounds like a perfect adventure with lots of room to practice huge change without giving up all aspects of life as I’ve known it.

 

If you’re thinking about changing your lifestyle, making a move to something better, or trying to find a place where your talents and skills will be appreciated and useful, I’m inviting you to check out this opportunity too. We’re looking for artists, creative businesses, writers, bloggers, designers and just about anything you can think of. There’s plenty of room for everyone!

And now, I’m into the next step: Figuring out what to keep and what to let go… and how to say good bye. That’s for next post!

How Sales People Can Slash Their Wasted Time & Spike Productivity

     Too many of us in sales are familiar with it: cold-calling.  Vast swaths of our day are eaten up on the phone dialing from an endless list of blind prospects.  The chances that any one call might amount to a worthwhile sale are so slim, we might do better (and save a great deal more time) simply playing the lottery every day.  But there’s a third option here, and with it, the odds are actually on our side.  Sales people can indeed slash wasted time and enjoy spikes in productivity simply by employing the law of 80/20.

80/20 was first noted by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed that a mere 20% of the people control 80% of the wealth.  The way in which this law applies to sales is elementary: of all of those numbers listed on your cold calling sheet, only 20% of them can be expected to result in an actual sale.  Imagine if you could focus solely on those hot leads, and do away with all the dead ends—not only would you eliminate hours of wasted time every day, you’d also make the most of that time, watching sales go through the roof.  But how do we separate that 20% of cream at the top from the 80% mass of junk below and acquire new customers?

Rack the Shotgun, Rack Up Sales

     The trick is to metaphorically “rack the shotgun.”  Let’s say you’re at any sort of public place with scores of people about.  That distinct clicking sound of a shotgun chamber being loaded sounds from beneath a table somewhere.  Some—very likely only a few—will take note of it, recognize it for what it is, and probably gather their belongings and head for the door.  The others, however, will remain blissfully unaware.  The folks with their heads in the clouds are your marks, the sort who are not so defensive and therefore perfectly receptive to a good sales pitch.

By no means is anyone suggesting you do this with an actual shotgun; those who do will likely have bigger problems on their hands than lackluster productivity.  The point is that top salespeople know how to send out signals that ferret out those 20% of people willing to part with a dollar from the unresponsive 80%.  And in our so-called Information Age, that much has never been easier.

Watch Customers Come Your Way

     Let’s say you work for a company that sells shoehorns.  When a man finally decides his tight shoes have become problematic, where is he likely to turn?  The simple search term “shoehorns” gets plugged into Google, and the shopping begins.  Now, any company worth its salt has by now established a solid online presence, and this is just the reason why: rather than cold-calling legions of people to inquire about the snugness of their shoes, those with a problem that you’ve got a solution for will instead come looking for you.  This is how the proverbial shotgun is racked in the 21st century, isolating that most lucrative 20% and making them march your way.

You don’t have to sell shoehorns, and you very probably should not go brandishing firearms willy-nilly.  But through an understanding of the 80/20 principle, those of us in business can rack the shotgun, zero in on only the most promising leads, and do away with wasted time as we make more sales.

Announcing the first of many posts from our new author Stanlee Panell: our Ventura, California Blogger –  and joining us here in November at our new headquarters:

Destination weddings can be amazing – and challenging when you’re in business for yourself:

It’s hard to decide where to go, how long and how much it will cost, including time off from your business, for a honeymoon and for getting guests to the location.  And of course, there’s always the consideration of where to live, how to incorporate your business into your new married life style all of which still doesn’t even begin to account for the arrangements of planning this wonderful, exciting celebration of your love!

I have a great idea for you!  In fact … it could make your new life a whole life makeover.  Are you ready for that?  Well, let’s check it out and see…

antonito church

A Castle-like Cathedral with grounds …                          …inviting a horse drawn carriage?

Consider a paradise retreat, lushly surrounded by nature, furnished in elegant antiques, with a living river at your steps and a community ready to lavish you with every comfort and arrangement you desire.  Lots of those available for lots of money, right?  But, what if you could do all that at prices that sound like a third world economy … within a day’s travel of anywhere in California?  Chicago? Dallas? Washington DC?  Atlanta? NY?  Or anywhere in the world?! (No… I’m not talking cut-rate Hawaii!  Not everyone dreams ocean scenes.)

If the Colorado Mountains sounds more like your cup of tea, check out Colorado Retreat.net,  at River’s Inn in the San Luis Valley.

Watch a short video about the multi-million dollar restoration of this 1907 Fairy Tale mansion that could be the unique and elite destination of your dream wedding get away.

 

Imagine standing on the steps tossing the bouquet …

to your guests on the lawn under this brilliant blue sky.

There are four beautiful rooms for your guests and gorgeous meeting rooms for your gatherings of Rehearsal Dinner, Reception as well as Wedding … or take the ceremony outside in the crisp, beautiful setting of Nature.

Crystal clear air and water at 7888 feet above sea level surround this historic home-style Retreat Center with authentic, 20th Century European decor and furnishings in Antonito, Colorado.  Canopy beds, specially designed antique tub, stunning inlaid wood floors, fireplaces galore and homemade European breakfasts draw you into a fantasy land which, you deserve to be in during your wedding experience!

The mostly forgotten little town of Antonito has caterers with the freshest, healthiest, un-tampered-with, meats and produce and are eagerly awaiting your arrival.  Your wish is their command because this forgotten little town is filling with thriving business as well.  Major highways sustain Antonito with plenty of traffic constantly moving between surrounding cities.  Whatever you need, it is readily available and priced to encourage your stay.

Views and Steam train in Antonito, CO.

A historic, authentic, operating steam train runs from and to town through the  two mile plus high peaks between Antonito, CO and Chama, NM; and the Alamosa Airport is only 20 minutes away. Your family and guests can unwind and relax on the way and, as they await the celebration of your dreams.

Think about arriving a couple days ahead of your Wedding Date to refresh and relax in this pristine, natural environment without stress, rush, traffic or over committed obligations.  Imagine having this elegant, home style retreat all to yourselves for a couple of days prior to your wedding and then staying for your Honeymoon after everyone leaves.  Truly, as if inviting your special guests into your own home to celebrate you.

9 of 1001 | Do Business from Anywhere in 2014 – and right now!

A moment to pray and reflect - hint - it is not for God. It is for you and me.

A moment to pray and reflect – hint – it is not for God. It is for you and me.

Imagine..being able to live and work as part of a loving and committed team of like minded people seeking a cleaner, better, less addicted, less dependent existence. The ancient examples teach us that a people can only be enslaved with their permission. How long will you make excuses for your slave masters? How long will you serve them constantly, around the clock, and forsake your real purpose in life, without the need for whips and chains? How many times in one lifetime will you drink the proverbial cool-aid, and be fooled over and over again and again?!

I, for one, am disgusted by how many times we have been sold out by our politicians, ripped off by corporate conglomerates that we supposedly own; had our clocks cleaned by organized insurance, which started with Jimmy Hoffa and the labor unions (the mob).

If you are like me (had nothing – not even parents to help), then you are now the rule, where I and my family of five orphans were once the exception.

Something has got to change! We have lived this lie long enough!

I challenge you in your contemplative Sunday morning to consider a bold move: fire your slave-master, hire yourself!

Come to the “Boardroom of light and power” and live and work with us, in a new kind of tribe.

We are creating a sustainable community here.  Land and game and water are all abundant here – indeed the Amish villages are booming here – there is plenty of sun for solar, plenty of clean Elk meat – fish everywhere. These mountains around us are still full of trees, logging and mills. There is almost nobody here – just us “chickens.”

We have a place for any number of people who want to make this transition; I can cash flow your labor, and give you freedom from bondage if you are willing to join us.

Any skill, from remodeling labor for these historic buildings, to gardeners, cooks, caterers, farmers of fish…graphic artists, writers, photographers, teachers…

All we need from you:

  • The guts to make the decision
  • The decision to drop out of the corrupt system of lies and bondage that you are now trapped in.

I believe that we can change this world for the better with our choices, our wallets, our hearts and our minds, one person at a time.

I believe that my whole life of 59 years has prepared me for these decisions, for this calling.

I know for a fact that I am not alone.

Join us. It will cost you nothing but your fear. Bring $800 and your heart; your willingness to try is all we require. Don’t have $800? Hogwash! You need that just to live for one month  in this country, and food stamps count as cash – it is our money they are spending!

By the time I take my early retirement from all those years working 70-80 hours per week, they will have printed so much money that it will not be worth anything! They spent it all on planes, travel, lush parties, and wars!

I am done with this lie, and this corrupt mess. I am ready to pick up my cross, pick up my gun if need be, and bail! Are you?!

We can make a living right here; but we can also live without their money system.  Join me?  805-827-2450 – lets just talk about it.
