Self-Reliance Expo--Colorado Springs, CO

I’m pleased to be invited to be a part of the Self-Reliance Expo held in Colorado Springs, CO next weekend, May 18th and 19th at the Freedom Financial Services Center

Hours of the show will be from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day.self-reliance expo

 Classes at the Self-Reliance Expo

I’ll be teaching my popular rape prevention course, “Rape Prevention for Couch Potatoes” five different times during the event. If you’re one of those who’d like to attend you can register here:
Classes will be at noon, 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the 18th of May and at 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the 19th of May.
Please note that the times I have posted on our Facebook page and on the registration page are correct. For some reason Self-Reliance Expo has them posted incorrectly on their site for this class.

This course is one hour and requires very little physical effort as it’s intended to benefit both young and old, fit or fat, you name it. After all, regardless of any of that, EVERY woman has the right to defend themselves, right? It’s very, very disturbing to me that 1 out of 6 women are raped in their lifetime.  1 out of 6?! And the worst part about that is that on college campuses, it is believed that 95% of all rapes go unreported! It’s “only” 60% of all rapes that aren’t reported off campus. Good grief! What are we, some 3rd world nation that has absolutely no respect for women?! This is heinous, in my opinion and I say that it’s got to stop! And I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it stop on my watch! So…*breathing calmly now* if you’re able to come, not only will you be helping yourself, but part of your class tuition will go towards paying it forward in that I get to be able to afford to take this class right to the women who so desperately need it but where they won’t feel so vulnerable such as the women crisis centers, safe houses, etc. If you’re within even a couple of hours of driving time from this event, I highly recommend that you attend. I can honestly say that there’s NOTHING like this being taught elsewhere. I’ve often heard the remark from gals who take just this mini-class that it’s the best self-defense course they’ve ever attended. I hope to see you there.


In addition, I’ll also be teaching the Ten Principles of Preparedness class on each day on the main stage (10:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. respectively). That’s free for everyone.


I’ll also be participating in a special panel, Women of Prepping, that will be held on the main stage from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on the 19th.


There are a LOT of fabulous classes being hosted there—several of them that I’m going to try and attend as well. This event has got to be one of the most chocked full of education events like this that I’ve ever seen. Go to for more details.


Hope to see many of you there!

Lord Willing I'll see you there!

Do you have any plans on coming to Idaho in the near future? I would love to attend, but that is a little far for me to go to.
I absolutely love your site and check your FB page several times a day to see if there is anything new that I can glean. Thank you so much for everything that you do to help all of us, whether it be experienced ones or people like me who are just learning! I truly appreciate it!!

Wish I lived closer to Colorado...I would so love to attend your classes - Not a lot of options over here. :(

I agree with Liz! Thanks for all you do. I am new to this and learning too. I have been planning to have my garage sale, next weekend. Now I just realized a store close to me is holding a similar event on the same day I am having my sale. OH well, I have to have the sale so that I can use the money to stock up. Maybe I will see if on Friday I can get good buyers and then can go on Saturday! My hopes are that this will not be the only time they will hold such an event.

I've always done better on the Friday than the Saturday for my garage sales. Good luck!

Kellene, will you be attending the expo in Hickory, NC in September as well?

We are very interested in events of this type, but it seems if you live east of the Rocky Mtns. you are pretty much on your own. All supplies must be ordered as there are no places to actually go & purchase, no active network to go for advice & moral support. Do you have more info on this expo in Hickory, NC in Sept.? We go to NC frequently & would like to make plans to attend.
