by J.C. Martin, Guest Contributor (Editor's Note: I'm thrilled to share with you a contribution by one of my friends who's always good for a smile as well as sensible preparedness wisdom--J.C. Martin. Give him a warm welcome, Friends!)   Those who have prepped for a while know that, although it’s wise to be ready for a monetary collapse or the breakdown of civilization, the likeliest use of their preparations will happen during ordinary “bad times.” Natural or manmade catastrophes and economic...
2014

2014 will be the year of self-employment on Preparedness Pro. Sure, I’m going to continue to write regarding ALL of the 10 Principles of Preparedness, but this year I feel a sense of urgency, coupled with a strong passion, to really help make a change in the lives of our readers—specifically when it comes to creating and being able to rely upon an independent revenue stream.   Far too many people view the words “self-employment” as some out-of-reach, risky proposal that only the most learned,...

Instead of bemoaning all that’s going wrong with our nation in recent events, I’ve chosen to try and help our readers fight back against all of this economic and political uncertainty. Over the next few days I’ll be posting a multi-part article series which will address specific ways that you can become more independent financially through effective entrepreneurism. It is my firm belief that since our nation was first formally organized, there’s never been another time in our history in which...

There has been a “rest of the story” kind of story brewing for several weeks since I first wrote and published the article about the LDS Canneries on May 4th of this year. So when the LDS Church finally provided a formal press release today with detailed information on that very topic, I decided that today was just as good of a time as any to write “the rest of the story.” Why in the world did I write the story in the first place and why did I have to add all of the “government conspiracy...

  A typical Mittleider Garden (courtesy of Food for Everyone.org) Notice the wide aisles which cut down on pests without cutting down on production.   What if you could take your little spot of yard space (as little as 20' x 50' footprint for a family of four) and turn it into a highly productive spot that could not only provide premium quality food for your family but even help to financially SUPPORT your family too?!  It's possible IF you have the benefit of the knowledge of THE BEST...
gold bar

Today a reader asked me, “Do you think that we’re at risk for the government to confiscate our gold again?” Answer—No. For two reasons: First Reason) When FDR confiscated gold the first time he did it by Executive Order. That's the ONLY way such a request would be valid in this country thanks to the freedoms of owning property--gold being one's property. The original request was done by Executive Order, specifically 6102. Executive Orders are NOT valid or enforceable against everyday Americans...
Thrift Store

  I took some time last week to have a friend tag along with me at my local thrift store.  Hopefully you'll find some great ideas and tips with this video. (Also be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so that you never have to miss or delay the viewing of our educational videos. We've got several more that we are in the process of editing now. One thing that I'd appreciate you NOT saying is "my thrift store's too expensive" or "there aren't any thrift stores in my area" etc.  (I really...

  Personally, I'm more inclined to state that our government and their Wall Street and Federal Reserve cohorts are actually manipulating food prices in much the same way they are manipulating gold prices, fuel prices, ammo and firearm prices, and the value of the USD. However, one of the people that I consider a mentor is G. Edward Griffin, and today Mr. Griffin released an article and video link which takes the position that Wall Street is speculating on food thus making the food prices...

  Faith to Change There seems to be the misnomer that the only way to become more self-sufficient is to be loaded with money. Well, I can assure you from personal experience, such is NOT the case. It’s a matter of priorities, not paychecks.   A few years ago my husband and I had just gone through a horrible financial set-back; while 2008 hit a lot of businesses, we managed to do quite well until…well, until a whole lot of things happened all at once. We closed up a business, walked away...

  Hi folks. I’ve been tracking down some tips that I’ve received over the past couple of weeks. The results of my research have been disconcerting--to say the least—even for someone as prepared as myself. So I thought that the results were significant enough that I should share my findings with all of you. Bottom line, brace for impact at the gas pump and the grocery store registers in October. You’re about to see key grocery prices DOUBLE.   First of all, please stop holding your breath—yeah...
