Financially Free means you can live the lifestyle you desire without having to sell your time.

The mission of the Sustainable Living Center is to help our community have a sustainable lifestyle regardless of what happens such as the predicted: 9.0 earthquake & tsunami.  But the global debt, weather patterns, factory farming, EMP, cost of oil, war, inflation or a total financial collapse could cause a need to be Financially Free.

At the Sustainable Living Center, we value education.  We host free workshops on topics related to food, water, energy, shelter, community building and becoming financially free.

With education being a major component of our work at the Center, we expose a person too much more than the typical physical Sustainable Living experiences, but what will bring them of how to form a sustainable community.

You must have sources of passive income to become Financially Free

According to statistics, nine (9) out every ten (10) entrepreneurs fail.

Only 3% of all online businesses actually make ANY money.


Many people think that there are hundreds of paths to Becoming Financially Free.  As you go through our series you’ll see that there is only one path for you that is, “Effortless, Energize, and Enjoyable.”

That is the correct path for you.

Successful people have achieved financial freedom by following their natural path. This is to say; they found the path that suited their nature.

Could you imagine Richard Branson as a footballer or Bill Gates as a fishmonger?

No, they discovered the natural path.  They were born with it and capitalized on it. They followed a path that they loved, their path offered the least resistance and they excelled at it.

Wouldn’t you like to find your path and benefit from your natural strengths and excel?

The Second Golden Rule control the area of Financial Freedom.  It is:

“He Who has the Gold Makes the Rules”


You may not like this rule, but it controls the world.

Watch what happen to societies when there is no “gold” (in the form of jobs, social security, SSI, food stamps, or unemployment insurance)

Watch the county Venezuela as the oil revenue “gold” continue to decrease.

To be Sustainable, it is not just enough to have food, water, energy, and shelter, you need money.  We can’t get completely away from needing some “gold”.

Even people who try to live “Off the Grid” or “Living Off the Land” or a “Homesteader” you still must buy things.

Even the pioneers of old had to get supplies from the trading post!

Regardless either you must:

You must have passive income sources


 Someone must hold down a day job

You will need money to buy the things you can’t produce: for example, gasoline.


One percent owns 90% more of the “gold” than the rest of the world combined.

If you took all the “gold” and distributed it evenly, over a period of time, the people who had the “gold” originally would have it again, not considering inheritance.

Education is not the answer.  Of the top 12 richest people, not considering inheritance, only one graduated from college.   The rest were college dropouts.

Financially Free Phase I – TAGs

People who have achieved financial freedom followed their natural path.   This is to say; they found the natural path suited their TAGs (Talents, Attributes, and Gifts).   Their financial freedom is based on their strengths, not their weakness.

The people who love you the most – your family and friend, will focus and tell you about your weakness and not focus on your strengths.  Chick Here to see a video of what a Gallup survey found. 

In Phase 1 you will learn what Talents, Attributes and Gifts (TAGs) you have.  You can pay $49.99 and Click Here and take the test online or attend Phase I and get the same results for the price of beans.

Thirty-four (34) TAGs as defined by the Gallup Poll organization


The Gallup’s Poll organization did research on 198,000 employees in almost 8000 business units.

Employees who strongly agreed that they had a chance to do what they do best every day claimed fewer sick days, filed fewer workers’ compensation claims and had fewer accidents while on the job.

According to the Gallup, “Somebody in a low-grade job, such as a janitor, is nearly four times as likely to have a heart attack as the executive, even if, the executive is fat, hypertensive or a smoker, then, the janitor who is thin, non-smoking, and has low blood pressure.”  This means that the health of a person is closely linked to how much prestige is accorded their role.  In other words –Your heart is at the mercy of your payslip!

If you want better health, longer life, better relationships and financial freedom – understand and use your TAGs. An individual does not have to be wealthy to have a sense of control and self-confidence. Wealth and poverty are a state of the mind. If you do not understand and how to use your TAGs, you will never have a sense of control over your life.

You must first understand which of the TAGs are yours. You were born with them and depending on how you were mentored (parents,  life experience, your choices, and teachers) depends if they were developed into

Education is not the answer

Of the top 12 richest people, not considering inheritance, only two graduated from college.   The rest were college dropouts.

Financially Free Phase I – DNA way of Working.

You may not believe that you have a DNA way of working, but you do.  To prove it, you can Chick Here take our test online at no cost.  We will give you preliminary feedback on how you work, without even interviewing you.  During Phase 1, will receive more detail testing of your DNA way of working.

Nine (9) DNA ways of working


You were born with a DNA way of working.  We know there is a DNA way of working by looking at identical twins separated at birth.  Jim Lewis and Jim Springer were identical twins raised apart from the age of 4 weeks. When the twins were finally reunited at the age of 39 in 1979, they discovered they both suffered from tension headaches, were prone to nail-biting, smoked Salem cigarettes, drove the same type of car and even vacationed at the same beach in Florida.

The culprit for the odd similarities? …….  Genes.

Genes can help explain why someone is religious or not, brainy or not, and even whether they’re likely to develop gum disease, one psychologist explains.

Such broad-ranging genetic effects first came to light in a landmark study — Minnesota Twin Family Study — conducted from 1979 to 1999, which followed identical and fraternal twins who were separated at an early age. “We were surprised by certain behaviors that showed a genetic influence, such as religiosity and social attitudes,” said Nancy Segal, an evolutionary psychologist at California State University, Fullerton, who was part of the study for nine years. “Those surprised us because we thought those certainly must come from the family environment,”

Born together, raised apart

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, led by Thomas Bouchard, launched the landmark study in 1979. Over the course of 20 years, they studied 137 pairs of twins — 81 pairs of identical twins (twins who developed from one egg that split in two), and 56 pairs of fraternal twins (twins who developed from two eggs fertilized by two different sperm).

The Jim twins were probably the most famous set of twins involved in the study, but other pairs were equally fascinating. One pair of female twins in the study were separated from each other at 5 months old and weren’t reunited until age 78, making them the world’s longest separated pair in Guinness World Records.

The Minnesota study resulted in more than 170 individual studies focusing on different medical and psychological characteristics.  In one study, the researchers took photographs of the twins and found that identical twins would stand the same way, while fraternal twins had different postures.

Another study of four pairs of twins found that genetics had a stronger influence on sexual orientation in male twins than in female twins. A recent study in Sweden of 4,000 pairs of twins has replicated these findings, Segal said.

Nature vs. nurture

A 1986 study that was part of the larger Minnesota study found that genetics plays a larger role on personality than previously thought. Environment affected personality when twins were raised apart, but not when they were raised together, the study suggested.

Reporter Daniel Goleman wrote in The New York Times at the time that genetic makeup was more influential on personality than child rearing.

“We never said family environment didn’t matter,” Segal said. “We just made the point that the environment works in ways we hadn’t expected.”

Another study, commissioned by the editor of the journal Science, looked at genetics and IQ. The Minnesota researchers found that about 70 percent of IQ variation across the twin population was due to genetic differences among people, and 30 percent was due to environmental differences.   Moreover, a study in 1990 found that genetics account for 50 percent of the religiosity among the population — in other words, both identical twins raised apart were more likely to be religious or to be not religious, compared with unrelated individuals.

Other studies found a strong genetic influence on dental or gum health. That research helped to show that gum disease isn’t just caused by bacteria, it also has a genetic component, Segal said.

Another study found that happiness and well-being had a 50 percent genetic influence.


In another study, researchers surveyed the separated twins about how close they felt to their newfound sibling.

Among identical twins, 80 percent of those surveyed reported feeling closer and more familiar with their twin than they did to their best friends, suggesting a strong genetic component in the bond How between identical twins.

Once you find your path, you will find that you are probably missing some pieces to become Financially Free.  You have two options to overcome these missing parts.

Education is not the answer

How Phase I Works – Increase EQ (emotional intelligence)


Should a set of identical twins, with the same genes, raised in the same household, both be happy?

No, because they have free choice.

Chick Here – to see a video of this being demonstrated. 

It is interesting that some people with an IQ of 150 are not doing very well in “life”. They are not getting promotions, unable to get along with people, and are abrasive, and annoying.

Yet other people with lower IQs were soaring ahead.

 Why the difference?

 The difference is the Emotional Quotient (EQ)

Emotional Quotient (EQ) measures your capability, capacity or the ability to manage your emotions. Like Intelligence Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ) is an abstract term that is usually identified by testing.

The term of EQ was used first time by E. L. Thorndike at Columbia University, in 1920. He wanted to use it to understand and manage the emotions of other people. Psychologists, like John Mayer, Ph.D., a University of New Hampshire psychologist, differentiates EQ from emotional knowledge. He believes that EQ tests can measure your cognitive abilities the same as the classic IQ tests do.

Psychologists like Howard Gardner, Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, believe that traditional types of intelligence have failed to fully explain the phenomenon of your cognitive abilities. Daniel Goldman who popularized “EQ” in 1995, with his best-selling book, “Emotional Intelligence,” knew there is something more than IQ needed for success in life.

Can EQ be tested?

Different explanations and writings prove that EQ tests measure your cognitive process.

It tests how do you integrate thoughts and feelings to make critical decisions?

What cognitive abilities you have?

What combination of understandable abilities and characteristics you show?

Can IQ be increased?   No

Can EQ be increased?  Yes

If you do not believe EQ is real, try the following and monitor your results..

What makes Phase I work –  Eliminate the Negative


Chick Here – to see a video of how this works. 

In phase one (1) we do this by wearing a No Complaint Bracelet. The bracelet is a powerful tool to remind you when you are complaining. Here are the rules:

  1. Place the bracelet on your left wrist every morning.
  2. Every time when you catch yourself complaining, gossiping or criticizing, either:
    1. Move the bracelet to the other wrist


  1. Snap yourself with the bracelet and do not move the bracelet
  2. If you hear someone else who is wearing a bracelet complain, you may point out their need to switch the bracelet to the other wrist; BUT, if you’re going to do this, you must move your bracelet first because you are criticizing another.
  3. Keep moving or snapping your bracelet until you can keep it on the left wrist 21 consecutive s without a snap or move. Stay with it. It may take many months. Social Scientists says it takes 21 days to form a new habit.  Complaining is a habit.

 How can I get someone else to stop complaining?

  As you begin to transform by not complaining, you will be an example of positive living and this will inspire all around you. Moreover, because you’re not participating in the complaining, others will be far less likely to complain to you.

 How do I know if I’m complaining?

 We define complaining as “to express pain, grief, or discontent with someone who cannot do anything about your complaint.”

Problems can be solved.  When you talk with the person that causes you a problem, you are not complaining.

A simple test is, if you can make this statement, “When you do________________ it makes me feel ______________ because _____________.”

When you are talking and thinking with people who cannot solve your problem, you are attracting more pain, grief, and discontent.

If I think a complaint but don’t speak it so I have to move my bracelet?
No, only if you speak a complaint aloud should you move your bracelet to the other wrist.

You will find that the more you stop articulating your complaints, the less complaining thoughts you will have.

How can we affect positive change without complaining?

Complaining spreads negatively.  You cannot create a positive outcome with negative.  You create positive by acting out the desires of your heart.  Getting in touch with the desires of your heart, which is another set of experiences that is described below.

Martin Luther King, Jr. when he was in Washington, DC and said:

  1. America has written them a check and it has come back “Insufficient funds.”
  2. He shared his dream that all children would live and play in harmony and peace.

Which do you remember?

Mother Teresa said she would not attend a rally Against War, but she would attend a rally For Peace.

Isn’t blowing off steam by complaining healthy?

No, for example, studies have shown that complaining about one’s health actually tends to make a person’s health worse, not better.

How will not complaining help me?

The QUALITY of your life is determined by your EQ.  Daniel Goleman, in his best-selling book “Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ” states that:

He found that people with high EQs tend to be more successful in life than those with lower EQs, even if their IQs are the same.

As you better manage your EQ, the quality of your life will increase. You’ll have the friends you want, the money you want, and the job you want. You’ll be accepted.

Success is 20% IQ and 80% EQ

What makes Phase I Work – Focus on Happiness


One must learn to focus on what brings you joy.   Check Here to see a video of how this is works.

This experience starts with completing a check would bring you happiness.

It starts when you receive a Money-Email from the Bank of the UnEnding Abundance.

Each Money-Email will detail how much “virtual” money has been deposited into your “virtual” bank account.

Of course, this will not be “real” money, but think about it as real money, get as excited as if you were receiving REAL money!!   If you cannot do it with “virtual” money, you will never do it with real money.

To raise your EQ, you must master the Law of Attraction. You will receive larger and larger amounts of “virtual” money over the weeks.  The first email is for $1000 but they will be ever increasing.

Make it easy on yourself by preparing a list of things you would buy if money were no object.

Don’t put limits on your choices, think BIG.  Attracting what you desire into your life comes from a combination of getting clear on what it is that you “really” want, and FEEL a passion or inspiration of how you will enjoy that thing in your life.  What brings you joy!!

Understand that the more you desire something and know that it can be yours, and feel the feeling, the faster you allow it to be attracted into your life.

Writing the check helps you focus on not only the money coming in, but the money going out – the continual flow of abundance that you are tapping into.

You must spend at least 20 seconds thinking about what the desires of your heart are as you write a check for the item.

Spend at least 20 seconds

If you do not spend at least 20 seconds on how you think and feel about each purchase, you are wasting your time.

The objective is for you to “spend” the money before the next money comes to buy whatever your heart desires.  The money comes every 2-4 days.

Buy whatever brings you happiness.  Use your money in whatever way brings joy to your heart.   Beyond your hearts desires, happiness and joy, there are no guidelines.

As well as having a lot of fun spending this money, you will also attract more money in the REAL world.

To receive maximum benefit, try to spend something each and every day.  The goal is for the money to be spent by the time the next money arrives.

You have to spend the money

Do not let it sit in a bank doing nothing – spend it!  You are changing your prosperity consciousness forever!

Be open to RECEIVE more

It is about ACCEPTING more and knowing you DESERVE more.  It is about RELEASING and letting that money flow out again. So please, spend, spend, spend on yourself during the game – and of course, ENJOY!

You can Increase your EQ


Does EQ (emotional intelligence) really matter?  Your emotional intelligence is your key to Financial Freedom.

The research shows that 90% of top performers are also high in emotional intelligence. On the flip side, just 20% of bottom performers are high in emotional intelligence. You can be a top performer without emotional intelligence, but the chances are slim.

The research shows that people with a high degree of emotional intelligence make more money—an average of $29,000 more per year than people with a low degree of emotional intelligence. The link between emotional intelligence and earnings is so direct that every point increase in emotional intelligence adds $1,300 to an annual salary. These findings hold true for people in all industries, at all levels, in every region of the world. We haven’t yet been able to find a job in which performance and pay aren’t tied closely to emotional intelligence.

 EQ (Emotional Intelligence) Can Be Developed

The communication between your emotional and rational “brains” is the physical source of emotional intelligence. The pathway for emotional intelligence starts in the brain, at the spinal cord. Your primary senses enter there and must travel to the front of your brain before you can think rationally about your experience. However, first, they travel through the limbic system, the place where emotions are generated. So, we have an emotional reaction to events before our rational mind is able to engage. Emotional intelligence requires effective communication between the rational and emotional centers of the brain.

Emotional intelligence is a balance between the rational and emotional brain.

“Plasticity” is the term neurologists use to describe the brain’s ability to change. Your brain grows new connections as you learn new skills. The change is gradual, as your brain cells develop new connections to speed the efficiency of new skills acquired.

Using strategies to increase your emotional intelligence allows the billions of microscopic neurons lining the road between the rational and emotional centers of your brain to branch off small “arms” (much like a tree) to reach out to the other cells. A single cell can grow 15,000 connections with its neighbors. This chain reaction of growth ensures it’s easier to kick this new behavior into action in the future. Once you train your brain by repeatedly using new emotional intelligence strategies, emotionally intelligent behaviors become habits.

Integrating a balance between the rational and emotional brain is not an overnight process. The research shows that people in a six-month process for new managers worldwide, the FedEx Express team at their Global Learning Institute is building the skills and expertise for people-first leadership had the following results:

The program is yielding an 8-11% increase in leadership competencies, with over half the participants experiencing very large (10-50%) improvements in certain key emotional intelligence skills and leadership outcomes:  72% of the program participants experience very large increases in decision making; 60% in Quality of Life, and 58% show major improvements in Influence.

During Phase two (2) you will be given the opportunity to use the tools from Phase one (10).
