People are unpredictable. Sometimes, they zig when you think they are going to zag. Knowing how to read people AND situations is an important part to anyone’s preparedness. This is true if you’re just going to the store or you think there is a potential for a future where people won’t be too friendly. Spending a little time working through scenarios and situations is a great way to start problem solving what you might want to do to help keep yourself or your family safe if the need arises.

“You never know what you had until it’s gone.” The saying is very familiar to those who have lost something or someone of value.

You might not be a classroom teacher, but you might need to teach skills one day.

I really believe that as the economy continues to drag along towards an inevitable decline, that anything a prepper can do to shore up their income streams will be a valuable asset to their financial security.

You should, like so many other preppers have already done, consider a micro or small business to supplement [...]
