``It is very true that out of simple beginnings… Great things evolve!
It was a simple start that led us along a winding pathway to end up with us guiding others through preparedness. I was 17 when it occurred to me that I probably shouldn’t expect to rely on my parents forever and naively expect them to carry the full weight of my welfare. It was then that I began to save $5 a week to put toward my own little personal food storage stash. It is amazing how quick 1 jar of peanut butter here, and a couple boxes of crackers there actually add up! It didn’t take long before I had 2 full shelves of food in my closet, and that was the beginning of Emergency Preparedness as I knew it!
My hobby and interest in learning and practicing preparedness tips and tricks grew as the years sped by, until I eventually found myself coaching and guiding others along the beginnings of their preparedness journeys. When that combined with an amazing opportunity to link arms with some of the most leading experts in the Preparedness Industry to reach out and teach more people, we just couldn’t resist!
It doesn’t matter whether you are just beginning your emergency preparedness journey, are lost or stalled somewhere along the way, or are even a seasoned pro – as I will share the knowledge that I have gained in a very simple plan….and even add some fun tidbits in for our resident pros!
