I am giving here in outline form the basis of survival of various Scientology organizations. This is how they live and this is how they keep going. When they stumble it is because staff is missing out one or another of these points.
In five years of trying anything and everything — and I mean everything — to get things going, my own program of success for organizations boils down to the following. I would consider it a favor if all Scientologists concerned with Scientology organizations studied this for what it is — an outline that wins:
The function of the HASUK is the dissemination of Scientology and the demonstration of its results.
Anticipating slumps and planning fast promotion and mailings to meet them
Compelling interest in organization
Being real about the actuality of needs
Attention to the philosophy that a healthy organization is a long term investment by staff and realization that the only staff personnel ever fired by the HASs were those who flagrantly acted to shorten the life of the organization for all
Good word of mouth
Good financial planning
Only Scientologists or those so studying, on staff in any capacity
A sincere interest in Scientology’s health and good action = no financial distress
Keep all staff processed
The organization in general will be only as healthy as its legal control of the subject appears formidable to any hungry invader. Hence, no membership organization, no loose stock distribution, no large unpaid bills, no overcapitalization because of property. Own little, do much. Owning much means doing little.
Happy New Year to Scientology staff everywhere. Let’s make 1956 the year we really win.
