When you are ready and have signed an agreement with Avlis Productions Inc., you will be certified as a Silva UltraMind ESP Systems Instructor by Jose Silva Jr., who was one of the original owners and the President of the old Silva UltraMind Systems LLC, and is also a Trustee of Jose Silva's Estate, which owns the Silva UltraMind ESP Systems.
The cost of doing business
The Better World System On-line Instructor Training Program is $597, which gives you full access to the Silva Instructor Support Group Web Site and the Complete Instructor Training Library. When you are ready to start conducting classes, there is a Certification Fee of $600 for Certification by Jose Silva Jr. This fee also covers the royalties for your first 10 students. You do not need to pay the Certification Fee if you only plan to teach your loved ones and not teach commercially.
When you present Jose Silva's UltraMind ESP System in English in North America (US, Canada, and Mexico) you pay royalties (copyright fee) by purchasing Student Kits and providing one to each student. The kit consists of the Student Resource Guide (student manual), a registration card, and a certificate of completion.
At the completion of each class, you must send us a class report, and also send payment to replace the manuals that you used.
That means that you do not have any up-front expense for manuals, however, you must purchase replacement manuals immediately after completion of the class in order for us to continue to do it this way.
We will provide you with a supply of manuals to get you started. The first 10 that you use, we will replace for free - they are included in your Certification Fee. After that, the base price for manuals (which include the Resource Guide, registration card, certificate of completion, and royalty) is $100 each, with discounts when you buy in quantity.
How much to charge students to take the course
You can set your price and charge what you think is best for people to take the course.
Our experience has been that individuals want to pay as little as possible. We to tell them that we will work out any kind of payment plan that they want, and we ask them how much they can pay now. If they offer less than what the manual cost us, then we decline. Otherwise, we take the money and let them come to class.
We don't bill them or ask them for the money. We have them fill out a form and state when they would make payments, and how much. Almost everybody ended up paying in full, even though we did not bill them or ask them.
If somebody doesn't pay, at least we don't lose any money. Like they say: It is better to get half of something... than to get all of nothing.
Obviously, as a business person, you have to figure out how much you need, and then test and see how much people are willing to pay.
By the way, the best business advice we ever got was from a handyman named Chester who drove an old "step van" and only had about four years of formal education. He explained it this way:
"In business, you only have 2 choices: You make money, or you lose money. There is no such thing as break-even. If you are not making money, you are losing money."
I am sure that you can figure out which of the 2 choices to take.
We do a lot of charitable work and do whatever we can to help people who need help, but when it is a business transaction, if we are not going to make some money from it, we pass on it.
We keep telling people that teaching is not a good way to earn a lot of money. Any teacher will tell you that. Teaching our courses is the most emotionally and spiritually rewarding thing we have ever done - but we certainly haven't gotten rich doing it.
The way to earn money in this business is to make it a business. If you want to encourage other people to become Silva UltraMind instructors, and you refer them to us and then help them promote classes, then you can earn a good income, if you do a good job at it.
Teaching the course can be a good way to supplement your income - especially if you are already in business and already have clients or customers who would be interested in it.
Making this a profitable business
Teaching the course can be a good way to supplement your income - especially if you are already in business and already have clients or customers who would be interested in it. It is very fulfilling, but any teacher will tell you that teaching isn't the best paying job.
The way to earn more money in this business is to make it a business. When you encourage other people to become Silva instructors, and you train them and help them and promote classes for them, then you can earn a good income, if you do a good job at it.
One idea is to recruit business people who have customers or clients who might be open to learning to use their natural God-given intuition to help them.
That could be anybody interested in alternative means to get things done - alternative health for instance. Chiropractors are often interested in what we do. Any bookstore that sells a lot of self-improvement books is a good prospect for us.
These kinds of businesses often have meeting rooms they can use, so they don't have to spend money for a place to hold the class.
These businesses won't have to spend any money on advertising -
just notify their customers of the Silva UltraMind ESP System. They
won't need to spend money on meeting space. Their only expense would
be the cost of the student manuals
They can also sell followup products - the home study courses, alpha and theta sound recordings, etc. - to their students, and both of you can earn additional money that way.
Learn the business for free
There is a very easy way to find out what it takes to persuade people to learn our System, and it won't cost you anything - in fact you can earn money while learning how to sell the course:

If you are serious about going out and telling people about the benefits and value of the Silva Systems, we can set up a web page for you, and provide you with sample presentations you can make to civic clubs and other community organizations.
This is the kind of thing you will need to do in order to find students to teach, so if you want to get an idea of how well you might do in this business, this can be an excellent way to begin.
Tips to help you earn more profit from teaching the course
To avoid the cost of having to rent meeting rooms, you can each private classes. When you find someone who wants their whole family to learn, then make them a special deal. Personal instruction is the best way to help them develop their own ESP. If they want the other techniques - headache control, memory and test taking, weight and habit control, and the ret of them - you can sell them our Silva UltraMind Choose Success course. Or any of the individual techniques from it.
Let's say you have a husband and wife and the children, they might want the UltraMind ESP System taught live by you, plus the recordings of the Sales Power program to help them earn more money, and the Choose Success for the problem solving techniques.
Figure up your costs, offer them a reasonable price, then go to their house and teach it. That way, you don't have to pay for a meeting room - your costs are the royalties, the wholesale price of the recordings, and some petrol to drive to their house a couple of times.
You won't get rich doing that, but at least you can make a reasonable profit from the class.
We will be happy to work with you and do what is best for everyone concerned. For instance, when working with a family, you can save some money by giving them only 2 manuals, one for the parents and one for the children. Please let us know about this advance so that we can avoid an misunderstandings later on.
Teaching our System is easy
We have tried to make it as easy as possible to get started, so that you can teach the course and find out firsthand what it is like and how far you want to go with it. If you have a knack for persuading people to sign up and take it, then you can recruit other instructors and help them do it and you will all benefit.
It is very easy to teach the course. The hard part is persuading people to invest the time and money to become psychics. Most of our business comes from referrals, by the way. Help your graduates succeed and achieve what they want, and they will insist that their friends come take the course too.
Jose Silva already did all of the hard work for us. All we need to do is to give people a reasonable explanation for each conditioning cycle so that they will be relaxed and receptive, and then read the conditioning cycle exactly the way Mr. Silva wrote it.
Our Instructor Support Group Website has hundreds of pages of information, audio and video recordings of Jose Silva, to help you understand his research and to be able to answer questions about it. If somebody ever asks you a question you don't know the answer to, DON'T try to fake it - we are training psychics, they will know if you are faking it. Be honest, tell them you want to check with headquarters to be sure you give them the correct information, and email us. We will help you.
Teaching in other countries
Whenever you want to present the UltraMind ESP System in another country, just let us know.
If Avlis Productions has a Licensee in that country, then you can work through that Licensee - you can obtain the Student Resource Guides and other supplies that have been designed for the specific requires of that country, and you can operate under the authority (local business license, etc.) of the Licensee of that country.
If Avlis Productions does not have a Licensee in that country, then you will need to make all of the arrangements for manuals, any licensing and tax liability from the local government, etc.
May the best thing be done for everyone concerned
We are eager to spread the world and get as many people as possible centered - and using the MentalVideo - as quickly as possible.
We also know - from our own first-hand experience as well as the experiences of others - how difficult it is to earn a reasonable profit in this business, so we will do everything that we can to help you.
Please remember that we must also earn a reasonable profit in order to stay in business, and we also pay royalties to the parent organization - the Silva family - for all of their past work and sacrifices, as well as their continued support that makes it possible for us to continue to present this work.
