How ready are you when things go wrong? The Prepping Guide is a guide to just that, what to do to stop things from going wrong and when they do, how to deal with it.
The Guide itself is a blog on preparedness, for yourself, your family and the world around you. I write about personal security, preparedness, prepping, survival, self-sufficiency, and readiness for your safety, both physically and digitally.
My knowledge on the subject matter stems from working in the military, law and web security. All of this has given me a chance to understand the levels of unexpected events, and how you can maintain a factor of control.
My belief is that with the right tools and the right mindset, you are able to face any unforeseeable risks in a manner that ensures your safety, and the safety of those around you. When it comes to the value of life, that information is priceless.
We are a lot alike, you and me. We are both interested in what happens when plans fail and disaster strikes.
So why do I write about prepping? I choose prepping and survivalism because both have played such a strong role in my life. It started when I was a little child taking my first step outdoors, to busting my head in a cubicle corporate law farm, then off to wearing a uniform and carrying out room clearance drills.
First, let me confess something, I write lists. It is how these words made their way to your screen today. I have been making mental lists since I was a boy scout. I’d learn the steps of tying a knot, just like my own shoelaces. One, two and three. As I grew older, I learnt that sometimes these simple steps fail, so I needed to plan for those failures.
My career took me from writing lists in law school, to etching out failure plans in a corporate law firm. This wasn’t enough for me, my passion for the outdoors and critical thinking led me to the army where I spent a number of years and was fortunate to work overseas.
All of that has resulted in my work on The Prepping Guide. These are highly valuable lessons I have learnt in my corporate life, my army career, my failures and my planning. Why are they important? Because they keep myself, my family and my friends safe, healthy and for the most part, happy. And I hope they do for yours too.
