Friend and Subscriber,
The first part of this newsletter is very painful for me to
It forces me to relive recent events about one of the most
difficult patches of time in my entire life. I almost
decided not to write about this at all. But, I can’t not
write it. I try to write as honest a newsletter as I can.
I’m not perfect at it, but I struggle to keep it straight.
Anyways, as I said, I can’t not write it; it just wouldn’t
Enough stalling. Let’s get on with it.
I don’t smoke. I don’t drink alcoholic beverages. I don’t
use recreational drugs. This has been true for years.
Many, many years. In spite of all that, I recently spent 10
days in the intense, detox unit of a local hospital. I was
detoxing from a prescription drug that should never have
been prescribed for me at all. In fact, in my opinion, it
should not be prescribed for anyone.
This medication is described as a “low-level” anti-anxiety
drug. It is hugely popular. You can get a prescription for
it from almost any doctor. Go to the internet and you’ll
find endless sources where you can buy it without any
prescription at all. In some countries you can literally
buy it over the counter.
It works like a dream. If you are tense or anxious, just
swallow one of these little suckers and, in less than 20
minutes, your tension and anxiety will evaporate. Many
people use it to get a good night’s sleep.
It would be great if you could use this pill on a truly “as
needed” basis. But, in my case, after years of using it, it
got away from me. I became dependant on this drug. For a
long time, it helped me get through my day.
I guess, because of that, you could consider me a weak
person. I wouldn’t argue with you about this. But, you
should know this “innocent” little pill is now considered by
many experts to be the biggest drug problem in the world.
It seems to have gotten the best of thousands (make that
hundreds of thousands) of other “weak” people. It has
eclipsed heroin, cocaine and even methamphetamine as the
world’s major, most dangerous drug.
Let me help you understand why this is so... and... let me
explain what I mean when I say I and countless other people
come to be “dependent” on this drug. It’s not just that
people start to pop one of these little pills when they
become tense, anxious or have a hard time getting to sleep.
No. The real problem comes when you decide to stop
using this drug. Many people (like me) decide, “Hey, this
is getting the best of me. I’m going to deal with my
problems without any kind of chemical help.” And then, they
flush their supply of this drug down the toilet.
That’s When The Nightmare Begins!
see, this drug has a very short “half life.” That means it
passes out of your body very, very quickly. And, 4 to 6 to
maybe eight hours after you’ve flushed your drugs down the
toilet, you begin to feel tenseness, anxiety and dread like
you’ve never known before. It gets far worse than the
symptoms were that got you to first taking this drug.
It gets worse minute-by-minute. After two or three days of
trying to kick this drug “cold turkey” you will likely start
having seizures, convulsions, perhaps a stroke or maybe a
Than 20% Of The People Who Try
Quit Using This Drug “Cold-Turkey” By Themselves
people try to stop using this drug, they do whatever is
necessary to get more of it. Then, they realize they are
between a rock and a hard-place. They are hooked.
If they see a competent doctor, he will tell them, if
possible, they need to detox in a medical facility. If not,
their other option is to “taper off” cutting down by a mere
10% per week. Many people (like me) try this. Usually they
try over and over. But, the “tapering off” experience keeps
you at such a high level of discomfort that few people are
able to do it.
Many of those people (like me) at this period actually start
using more of this drug and then...
Their Lives Turn Into A Nightmare On Steroids!
it came to pass, I checked myself into a medical detox
center. I stayed there for 10 days. It was, to say the
least, unpleasant. This turns out to be the hardest drug to
kick in the world. And, one of the most dangerous. Even
worse than heroin.
I learned later that, even in this controlled medical
environment, it was “touch and go” for me for at least the
first five days. The medical people later told me I went
through the roughest detox they had ever seen anyone
But, I did it. I somehow managed to “hold on” until it was
over. And now, I am completely free of this drug. And, as
every day goes by, I get stronger physically and clearer
mentally and, I am wondering about something:
I Was Sharp Before, How Much Better Will I Be Now That I Do
Have This Drug Holding Me Down!
But wait. I didn’t just write all of this just because I
wanted to share a part of my life with you. I did it for
another far more important reason. You see, I’m absolutely
certain many of my readers are sliding down the same path as
the one I just described. You see, the drug I’ve been
writing about is little ‘ol innocent...
And, a lot of you are “being helped” by this little innocent
drug, aren’t you?
Listen up: Most drug fatalities are caused by overdose.
But, with some drugs, you are far more likely to die when
you try to stop using the drug. And, Xanax is the number
one drug of which this is true. Hardly anyone ever dies of
a Xanax overdose. Nope. With Xanax you are more likely to
die when you decide to quit using the drug.
And, don’t think you are ever immune. It took 15-years
until this drug drove me into medical detox. And much of
that time I lived a pretty “ok” life. But, if you are
flirting with using this drug, it could happen to you in 15
days. You never know. After a certain point, it is
not you who is in control.
Anyway, I want a small favor from you: If you are using
Xanax (even a very small amount), I just want you to visit a
website. It is...
it. It will knock you out of your socks.
And, if you know anyone using Xanax (and it’s almost certain
you do) give them this newsletter to read and encourage them
to go to the website I just mentioned.

Just Might Save Someone’s Life!
Alrighty then, now that I’ve set the dismal tone for this
newsletter, let me tell you about another recent event that
“sucker-punched” me in the gut. This one doesn’t have the
life or death urgency about what I have already written
about... but... it is indeed a true downer.
As many of you know, my assistant, Theresa, has pretty much
been the glue that has held my little business together
as many of you already know, she recently got married. Her
marriage came at a complete shock to me. I had no advance
warning or clue. Also, as her husband insisted, she had to
break all ties with me very abruptly. I thought it was
going to be a smooth transition from Theresa to my new
assistant, Liliana. This turned out not be the case. We
were given one day (the day after Christmas) to get all of
my computers, products and everything else from the office
and storage unit in Ocala to take back here to Miami. Also,
Theresa had one 7-hour day to teach Liliana the computer
programs, passwords and codes and the other stuff that makes
my business tick. In other words, it was a valiant attempt
to transfer 17 years of business expertise from one person
to another in one short day.
That’s not the worst of it. We are also forbidden access to
Theresa forever. I have no way to visit her, telephone her,
e-mail her, or even send her a smoke signal. Theresa has
been very loyal and helpful to me. She is a wonderful woman
and her contribution to my life has been priceless.
But, she’s also a Jehovah Witness and, as I understand it,
when a JW woman marries, she must, according to the dictates
of that religion be almost completely subservient to her
husband. Theresa is a very classy woman. I think if the
situation were different, she’d at least talk with my female
assistant from time-to-time to help her work out any
glitches. But, none of that really matters. What is, is.
And, I’ve simply got to make the best of the cards I’ve been
So, I’m here in Miami with a new office, boxes stacked from
wall-to-ceiling and, we don’t even have the computers hooked
up yet. You’ll know when they are hooked up because I won’t
be able to post this newsletter on my website until then.
So, if you are reading this letter, you know I am in
business again. Sort of. And, if you’re not reading this
newsletter, I am not.
Anyway, if you are reading this letter, that means I’m back
in business, and I’ve got something to sell. Don’t tense
up. It has enormous value and you’re not going to have to
sell the farm to get it. Let me tell you about it. As you
probably know, I did a “Root Canal” Seminar in Orlando on
December 2nd and another one in Los Angeles on
December 9th. For some insane reason, I decided
not to record these seminars. One guy actually offered to
record them for me for free. I said, “No, I don’t want this
one recorded.” That turned out to be a bad, bad mistake.
After about five hours of the first day of this seminar, I
realized it was turning out to be perhaps the best seminar
I’ve ever given. Then, my staff and I struggled like crazy
to find a way to record it. We even tried using an I-Pod to
do the job. But, to no avail. It was at this time, I
resolved to record the upcoming seminar in Los Angeles.
But, I had learned that Theresa, who usually takes care of
the details of stuff like this for me, would not be allowed
to go to Los Angeles.
I was almost panic stricken but, then, a really nice guy,
George Graves, said he would attend the L.A. Seminar and he
would record it for me.
God for George!
So, the Los Angeles Root Canal Seminar did get recorded
professionally and I now have all the CD’s of that seminar.
There are 12 CD’s in the set, plus one bonus CD of the only
other person that spoke at the seminar besides myself. He
was John Gilvary of US Merchant Services. And what he talks
about on his CD is how to go about getting a merchant
account. Trust me. You cannot afford to miss out on really
good info about merchant accounts that allows you to process
credit card orders. And, when you listen to this CD you
will hear explicit instructions on how you can get a
merchant account almost immediately.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about these Root Canal Seminars.
What was it, I puzzled, that made these seminars stand out
so much from all the other seminars I had given? Then it
came to me. It was the format of the seminar. In the Root
Canal seminars what I did was talk for the better part of
the entire first day on what people need to know to operate
a profitable direct marketing business. And, what I talked
about are things you MUST know that, as far as I know, have
not been revealed in any other seminar. Then, after that, I
asked if anyone in the room had marketing problems that I
could help them solve. And, the entire rest of the seminar
consisted of me telling people exactly what they were doing
wrong and exactly what they needed to do to fix their
problems. I not only answered their questions, I gave them
marketing strategies that were essential to make a success
out of their business.
I did this for every single person in the room. I cannot
imagine someone having a problem concerning a direct
marketing business that is not addressed and answered on the
CD’s of this seminar. If you only ever buy one thing from
me, I hope it is these CD’s.
The price I’ve decided to charge you for a set of these
invaluable CD’s is $397.00 and I will pay the shipping and
