Yes! This is the Life!
The ESCAPE PLAN for people who want to retire – and still get paid doing what they love!
Taking the sailboat out is always a good day. But the other day was especially satisfying. For the first time I realized I had “made it.” I had finally realized my dream of being a Retired Writer. It didn’t happen in a straight line and that’s okay. If you know anything about sailing that’s the way the wind blows.
But I did it. And so can you. You can make a living as a writer. The gatekeepers from the past are gone. You have access to a global audience of billions of people who are interested in the same things you care about – whether it’s business, health, relationships and just about any hobby and past time known to humanity.
And you can get started today, literally for free.
All you need is desire and a little bit of effort.
You don’t need education or even a lot of time. With the methods I’ve developed you can write anywhere you travel, by sea, air or land. All you need is a phone – and you don’t even need to be connected to the Internet most of the time.
I am sharing the techniques in the programs below because I believe the world needs more voices. I don’t know you or where your interests lie. All you really need is some enthusiasm and a willingness to publish your work.
The marvelous thing about the modern world for writers is that your audience is out there. There is a group of people out there right now, around the world that cares about what you care about.
They share your enthusiasm and want to hear from you. Just the other day I met a guy who was into fishing. He knew all about the different kinds of lures that catch different kinds of fish – and he even invented his very own brand of fishing lures that he was testing out down by the river where I keep my sailboat.
During our conversation he told me he was part of a community of THOUSANDS of people who shared his passion for fishing, for fishing with different kinds of bait and for fishing from kayaks and on and on.
That gentleman is in the process of selling his know-how to an audience of people who can’t wait to hear what he has in store for them next!
And it can be the same for you. Every human being has a voice, and interests that are shared by thousands of others. And you can share your expertise, your wisdom and your unique take on life through articles, email, books and courses.
The best part about the modern world of publishing is that your audience is willing to PAY YOU for your expertise.
You can write a book, or develop a short course and have money arrive in your email inbox at all hours of the day – even while you are SLEEPING.
And my friend one of the great thrills of life is waking up in the morning to an email on your phone that says, YOU RECEIVED A PAYMENT.
It does take a little know-how. Most of it isn’t too fancy. The easy stuff is so easy you can be doing it, like I said, for free and as early as tonight. All this information is available to you NOW, just by joining our crew at Retired Writer’s Club.
We have a lot of fun here at the Club. We are living the dream many of us have held in our hearts for a lifetime, and you know, with the state of the world being what it is, a lot of us decided that the only time we have is now.

How to Write a Best Selling Book in Just 5 Minutes a Day!
This is my short, 55-minute audio program that walks you through achieving your dream of writing a book – in just 5 minutes a day!
I know it woks because I’d already done it twice when I laid this down, and this shorty is number 3.

It is easy it is simple and it is fun. You already have the technology on your phone. You can start today.
Program also features a PDF reference guide you can print out and a handful of bonus videos. I kept this one focused because the goal is to learn the method and start doing it for yourself – good luck!
Advanced Book Marketing Tactics!
In this program I am teaching you how to create marketing material from a book you have already written. This is using a technique that was big in direct-mail copywriting I think starting in the 1970s. What you are going to do is take your book and go through it page by page and draw out interesting nuggets that make the material sound interesting enough to buy – but without giving away what is actually in the book.
This tactic was known as “fascinations” when Mel Martin did it for a golf book and a cooking book. It is said that Eugene Schwartz and Gary Bencivenga used this technique when they wrote their sales letters and magalogs.
I talk about this technique in the video below. After the video there is a list of 70 bullets I wrote for my own book, How to Create Million Dollar Products! Take note of the page numbers after each bullet. When you include these in your copy you are demonstrating to the reader that your book has substance and is a form of proof that you are not just making things up!
Going through this exercise for your book and adding the bullets to your copy does a couple things beside making it compelling to your prospect.
Dynamic Headline Workshop!
The Internet has made headlines more important than ever. To get people’s attention, to get them to click and read and buy you have to pull them in with a strong statement.
We start by walking through the importance of studying the classic headlines of the past – 200 of them.
Then we go to what I call, “God-mode” where you experience the power of granting your customers their deepest and most secret wishes.
Then we experience the power of writing headlines using emotional triggers – the most targeted and powerful method ever devised.
AND then, after you have gone through these steps you will experience the absolutely wonderful phenomenon I call “synthetic headlines.
The 22-minute video workshop also includes a 16-page PDF for you to download , print and use to create your own Dynamic Headlines!
Dictation for Professional Writers!
In this program I present 2 videos about dictation. Because this is a demonstration-style workshop the text you see printed after each video is a transcription of that digital file.
You probably already know that I write books using dictation and also have a short presentation on how you can write a memoir using dictation. It is simple and it is fun. I do understand that it takes some practice. And that’s OK. If you have ever seen some people type does it look natural to you?
I also use dictation for more than 50% of my blog and article writing.
In this program you are going to learn:
- The 3 methods of using technology to transform your spoken word into text.
- Why dictation is the natural way to write.
- Why you don’t have to struggle to find your writing voice.
- How dictation frees you up to write your material anywhere! Even in a convertible with the top down!

MANIPULATION – Emotional Triggers that Make People Buy!
Our 6 and a half hour program that delves into the REAL drivers behind consumer purchase decisions.
People buy their own emotions they see reflected in the products and services we offer in the marketplace. The truly advanced marketer knows this and in many cases designs products specifically from scratch to answer every single emotional trigger in the customer.
The advanced and smart marketer fashions their advertising to answer and solve the emotional needs of the customer.
Using the approach we teach in this program, your copywriting dilemma is solved. Once you identify the emotions that are in your customer you can write copy that addresses these needs head-on.
Rather than be manipulative in a negative sense, the irony of addressing your customer’s emotional needs makes them feel understood and cared for!
But the fact remains that the heart of marketing is creating an emotional bond with your customer. Once you start thinking in this certain way you will enter a new stage of your marketing journey – you will be putting your customer’s needs first – and you will reap the reward!

The Philosophy of Kings!
Here are 10 Special Reports about a very important topic – YOU.
The Philosophy of Kings centers on the idea of Ownership.
It’s premise is that you were born the Owner of your life. Yet you were not trained to understand this, and certainly not to act on it.
The Philosophy of Kings teaches 3 principles:
- You can live the life you desire. Your first obligation is to yourself.
- In order to do so, you have to disentangle yourself from obligations that do not belong to you – obligations that keep you from your true desires.
- The easiest way to do this is to take Ownership of your life, perhaps for the first time. You do this by asserting, “I am the Owner.”
