Someone recently called into our toll free number at 866-65-THINK and asked if I could do a show geared to the “brand new person that has woken up and wants to stop being a grasshopper and become an ant”. Since that is not a call that can be answered on a listener call in show today’s episode is dedicated to answering that very questions.

Tune in today to hear…

  • Why you must first determine where you are before you start prepping
  • How the one shelf method can easily get you on your way to storing food
  • Why documentation is so important to your success
  • Priorities one, two and three - food, debt reduction, basic planning
  • You didn’t get to where you are in a day, you won’t get out of it in a day either
  • You may already have more food then you realize
  • Figuring out what you already have and reorganizing and purposing it
  • Understand the commonality of disaster and use it to your advantage
  • Why you have to have YOUR OWN plans and goals rather then following another persons plan
  • The place for some cheap long term storage items like beans, rice and pasta in a few buckets
  • Why debt reduction and expense cutting is so important
  • Thoughts on storing water for drinking and “other needs” as well
  • Why I discuss threats and what threat discussions are really about
  • Why the individual threat is not that important to how you actually prep
  • When you actually do need to really pay attention to a threat and gauge your exposure as an individual or as a group
  • Thoughts about self defense beyond concealed carry especially where concealed carry is not legal or practical
  • Being armed increases your responsibility to avoid conflict, understand that or don’t carry any weapon
  • Understand that you can only succeed if you have ownership of your personal plans, goals and objectives
