I met my African students today!

I am so happy to get the chance to see some of my students today at the National Academy of Osteopathy campus in Toronto.

I am honoured to see students travelled so far to be with us in Toronto. In this class we have students from Africa, Asia, North America and Europe.

Here I am with Robert O'Friel, a retired professional golfer who travelled from South Africa to study at NAO and Deshna Shah, a medical assistant from Kenya. Such dedication! These two students travelled all the way from Africa to study manual osteopathy at NAO. I am humbled and grateful that they chose us for their osteopathic education.

NAO is expanding osteopathy in Africa. We already have two Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada in Nairobi and Morocco. We have alumni in many African countries such as Tanzania, Nigeria, South Africa, Brunei, Cameron, Egypt and others.

High income is not needed to become a millionaire. All you need is time!

Most millionaires in US have annual income of less than $100,000 per year and live in houses that cost less than $500,000 and drive a Toyota Camry.
Investing anywhere from $250 to $1000 per month over 20 to 25 years would make you a multimillionaire. Majority of people can easily start investing $250 per month.
There are many ways you can become a millionaire. Rare ones include gambling (not recommended!), winning a lottery (not recommended) and marrying a millionaire (go for it if you love the person! ).
Less rare is becoming a millionaire through inheritance. This is out of your hand though as you are born into such families. However please do not initiate activities to receive inheritance sooner than expected by natural means. Many people tried to speed up the process and ended up in jail!
Most common relatively quick way of becoming a millionaire is opening your own business. Successful businesspeople can become a millionaire on average within 5 to 10 years.
The most common long term method of becoming a millionaire is through investing $250 or more per month.
I recommend to everyone who wishes to become a millionaire to open your own business and to invest 10% or more of your profit into selected low commission, non-human managed exchange traded funds (ETF). Compared to actively human managed mutual funds you save up to 70% of your profits that are taken by expenses and tax. Out of a million dollars in profit regular mutual funds may take up to $700,000 of it in expenses and tax. So when you think you made a million dollars in reality you take out only $300,000.
Most people do not know these topics. I teach my students everything I know about business and finances. This tip alone can save you over $700,000 in expenses in 25 years.
Becoming a millionaire is easy. It takes dedication, perseverance, work, and time. Time passes anyway. No matter if you invest wisely or not, time passes. But where will you be in 20 years? Will you be a millionaire or struggling to survive? Invest your money now. You will be happy you did when you retire.
And if you ever visit Amsterdam, make sure you try the Stroopwafel! They are amazing!

3 new clinics in Ontario!

We opened three more Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada this week. Judita, Brody and Younis are the three manual osteopaths working in our new clinics in Oakville, Thunder Bay and Mississauga.

Osteopathy is a system of healthcare with roots in Cherokee and Shawnee Tribes traditional Indigenous medicine and bodywork. It offers miracles for chronic pain. Actually people who seek our services are mainly last resort cases who could not get better after many years of treatments. 

We have 265 clinics now in 27 countries to serve you. To make an appointment send an email to info@osteopathypainclinic.com or call 1-800-359-1187.

Wow! 6 Months Waiting List!!!!

National Academy of Osteopathy alumni are some of the best manual osteopaths in the world. How many manual osteopaths have 6 months waiting list?
 
I heard last night from an NAO student who graduated 3 years ago. He practices in a small town in Ontario and specializes in a small niche market. Remember my business lecture "Go Niche or Go Broke?"
 
He has now a six months waiting list in a small town that he practices manual osteopathy!!! 
 
He asked me not to release his name yet until his video series are ready to be publicized. And I watched these videos, and I can just say Wow!!! So professional! I cannot wait to publicize these videos for him.
 
Some of the most beautiful osteopathy photos that I have seen are from this student. He is artistic, passionate and professional in what he does. Students like him are what make my life so sweet! Six months waiting list, wow!  
 
Another NAO student from British Columbia also sent me these photos last night showing how I look as a senior citizen! My students are a source of happiness in my life.
 
And again, 6 months waiting list! Wow! I am so impressed. This is a student who listened to my business lectures and within 3 years made himself one of the best manual osteopaths in the world.

I am both a blood Native and an adopted Native

Since May 2019 I have been an adopted Southern Cherokee Native. I have my own Tribal Card now which I used as my ID card last week in my trip to USA.

However I am by birth a blood Native as well. I am a Gilak. Gilaks are one of the major native ethnic groups residing in North of Iran, in the province of Gilan. They were living in Iran prior to the arrival of Aryan Nation that overtook Iran.

Gilaks have their own language, culture and cuisine. They treat women equally and women work alongside men, even in military. They had many female rulers. As they lived in green mountainous areas they could not be conquered by those who attacked and took Iran such as Alexander the Great. Gilaks are proud brave independent people. And the mountains ensured their independence for generations.

Gilaks had their own country for millennia but later were assimilated into Iran. However around a century ago an scholar Mirza Kochak Khan, revolted against Iran and formed the Socialistic Republic of Gilan, with its own currency, language and laws. However the Republic was short lived. Gilaks founded the first ever democratically elected parliament in the Middle East.

My great grand parents fought for Gilan with Mirza Kochak Khan. My father is now buried in the same cemetery as him as he had a deep seated love for this revolutionary figure.

I feel my rebellious side, where I want to change the system for the better, where I always question authority and the "traditional" way of doing things and never accept the status quo if it does not make sense to me, is the result of my Native Gilaki blood. And now with what I have learned as an adopted Native, the combination is turning up to be something amazing.

I give my thanks to the Creator for giving me my Native blood and making me an adopted one as well.
