Financial Preparedness

  Many of my family, friends and associates speak of a financial collapse as if it’s coming in the future; but the truth is, it’s already come. I’ll say it again, the commencement of a financial collapse has already occurred. Oh, I’ll grant it that we haven’t yet seen the very worst of the a global financial collapse, but it most certainly has taken place—just as plainly as the nose on your face, with no less drama than what took place on Wall Street crisis that took place on October 29, 1929...

 I have to say, this is my most hated and loathed 5 word sentence.  Anyone who has the temerity to take control of their future though, aka practices self-reliance, has heard these words, or a derivative thereof way too many times. “When things get rough, I’m coming to YOUR house!” “Why do I need to prepare for anything? I’ll just go to my parents house?” “If the world comes to an end, I’ll just get my gun and find me a Mormon.” I gotta tell you, I even hate hearing these things when they are...

, The Preparedness Pro I was up late last night slathering mineral oil on dozens of eggs. Walgreens had them on sale this week, large eggs, 1 dozen, for only 99 cents. (I can’t believe that’s considered a “GREAT” deal now, can you?) Anyway, they had a limit of 3 dozen eggs so I made the runs several times throughout the week at all of the Walgreens in my area. Two of the Walgreens were ALWAYS out so I got rainchecks. Yay for rainchecks! Then I remembered last night that Target and Wal-Mart...

I have specific price points set for the various items I purchase including toilet paper and batteries. When a product reaches a particular price point, I stock up. Well, recently I was made aware that Amazon has a “Subscribe and Save” option on their website for some common items that I always purchase and includes free shipping. Even better, usually if there’s a coupon in circulation that I would normally be using in a physical store, Amazon has that coupon available on their site that is...

If there was only one aspect of the Principle of Financial Preparedness that everyone could do perfectly, I would hope it would be that they could clearly see the TRUTH about how money works, how it's manipulated all over the world, what the agendas are, and who's really pulling the strings. I believe that if more people were able to see clearly then they'd actually be more secure in their financial stability because they wouldn't make decisions based on "the emperor really wearing new...

“If the dollar is really plummeting and the mortgage holders and credit card companies could go belly-up any day, why is it so important to pay off our debts? Wouldn’t a collapse wipe the debts out?” This is a question I hear frequently, but I’ve been getting it posed to me in one way or another much more lately as a result of the Prelude to a Financial Collapse articles I’ve written. Even yesterday a similar question was posed to me by a reporter for a local newspaper.  You may not be aware...

Friday’s aren’t usually a blog posting day for me so that I can get ready for the radio show I do on Saturday morning, but there’s a current event issue that I felt that really needed to be addressed. In the interest of time I’m not going to sugar coat it, but just come right out and share my thoughts on this matter. Yes, gold is skyrocketing, and as a result a lot of folks are feeling even more panicked about the value of the dollar. They are rushing to purchase gold and silver in an effort...

So, S & P downgraded the U.S. credit rating, but what in the world does that mean to you? Well, unfortunately, the personal impact will come at you from several different directions, but you’ll be able to see them coming if you understand one fundamental component. If you recall, in my last article I mentioned financial instruments. A financial instrument is really just a hoity-toity word for an I.O.U.; and are assigned a value based on what asset is backing them. It could be gold, oil,...

Because of the serious nature of this article and the consternation it may cause some of you, please allow me to say first and foremost that I still believe solely in PEACEFUL preparedness.  In spite of what I’m sharing with you today, I want you to know that I am actually more full of peace than ever before because of where I stand spiritually, mentally, physically, medically, etc. in my efforts of self-reliance.  I reiterate to all of you who will read this article today that no matter what...

(Author's note, this is a previously published article from our "Best of Collection" with a few modifications to reflect the challenges of today.) Preparedness is a full-time focus for me as opposed to a hobby or a trend. I live it, breathe it, and think about it constantly whether I"m working or playing.  Obviously I teach and write about it regularly as well.  I will also choose to use spare time  to learn about how I can be better prepared by spending time reading a novel or non-fiction...
