Financial Preparedness! “The Sky is Falling”

FinancialBlood on the Moon, a sign/omen that danger is coming. Through the eyes of many, an apt description of the times we live in. A glance at any news site is sure to enforce this belief with predictions of financial crisis, continued economic failure, natural disasters in all corners of the world, civil wars, holy wars, pain, suffering and a host of calamities. You name it, its happening or going to happen. What are we to do, the sky must be falling, that’s it the sky is falling, the sky is falling! Feeling like the little red hen and her sky is falling scenario is no longer a nursery rhyme for many but a fact of life. Bad news, scary news abounds it seems to be everywhere around every corner. Living a life prepared suddenly becomes confusing, a little panic stricken even. Continue reading Financial Preparedness! “The Sky is Falling”

Mutual Assistance Groups

AssistanceAssistance Groups: You scratch my back I’ll scratch yours! Mutual Assistance Groups aka MAG’s are the epitome of this old saying with a lot more to boot. What are Mutual Assistance Groups, Mutual Assistance Associations or a host of other names? What can a MAG do for you or not. The term when searched on line brings up a bevy of entries, 2,980,000 on one search engine alone. That’s a lot of information to digest.

AssistanceMutual Assistance is a term used in many areas of living, our electric companies and other entities wishing to work together for reasons such as economic, efficiency and productivity often form these types of alliances. But wait, we are talking about personal preparing, what does a MAG have to do with us? The prepping community began talking about and forming MAG’s around 2010 and some probably much earlier, as many saw the handwriting on the wall in that if and when it all hits the fan, no one is an island as they say, no one person can do it all, can cover all the skills. It is a proven fact organized well; there is power and safety in numbers. So surviving and preparing folk embraced the concept of Mutual Assistance Groups. MAG’s come in all sizes and personalities, how do you sort it all out.

In essence to quote my guest this Sunday, Charley Hogwood, of Ready Go Prep ( Personal Readiness Education Programs) http://readygoprep.com/website/ a MAG a is “a group of like-minded individuals who pledge to assist each other in times of crisis.” The need or reasoning is pretty clear however this same reason creates a plethora of questions including who, what, when, where and how. The Other Side of a Preppers Path examines the MAG this Sunday. Lynna has tapped well known instructor and prepper, Charley Hogwood asking him to share his extensive knowledge on MAG’s. Charley recently posted a series of articles available at http://www.livingreadyonline.com/emergency-preparedness/ what-is-a-mutual-assistance-group regarding MAG’s. Rest your eyes and tune in to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, hear the the questions you want to know.

Let’s take a look at home security. Is your home secure? Furthermore is your home location conducive to your safety regarding economical, biological or political threat? Are you living in a locale that aids you or places roadblocks in your quest for preparedness and safety? These are questions we often neglect to ask during times that appear relatively easy with peace and prosperity appearing the norm. The question? Are times really peaceful and prosperous? The reality is the probability of any number of potential threats to our safety and well being is real and growing daily.  The fact is our country is already facing a labor crisis how long till we all feel the effects on the inflow of food and other necessities? Labor crisis begets economic crisis or vice versa, your pension, investments and other guaranteed income is in question. What about natural disaster or social chaos? Does your community have the resources and plans to help you face these threats? Join The Other Side of a Preppers Path as Lynna talks with reputed speaker, author and political scientist Joel Skousen, editor of  World Affairs Brief (www.worldaffairsbrief.com.) Specializing in the philosophy of law and Constitutional theory, Joel, a highly acclaimed designer of high security, self- sufficient residences and retreats worldwide and developer of contingency retreat plans for those living in a large city has ANSWERS.
