Links to sites that relate to Mogens' work:

"Wealth Protection - also for small business owners" - a site Mogens developed for Canine Superior Financial Services Inc. to help self-employed business people understand that paying income tax is a matter of their own legal choices... The site offers a wealth of information about how small business owners and private investors can legally protect their income and their assets from their government's greed.

"Novasol Judicare Inc." - the home site for Mogens' PPL business. The site gives a personal introduction to what a membership of PPL (Pre-Paid Legal) can do for a family that acknowledges the need for support when refusing to be bullied by "the big guys" , including government. A PPL membership should be at least as evident a choice for the average North American family as medical insurance!

"K9joy" - the home site for Mogens' dog training and coaching activities, including information about courses, seminars, special assignments, camp courses etc - and how you can get him to come to your organization! From the home page, there are links to all Mogens' books and videos about dogs, including the two video's of Mogens' seminars for dog owners, plus his e-books. The site offers many free samples of Mogens in action as instructor!
