Mind4Survival-The Best Preparedness InvestmentMany people, especially those new to prepping, often wonder what the best preparedness investment is. 

When they ask, they often get a wide array of answers.

Sometimes those answers are constructive. But, sometimes their responses are not helpful.

We have to understand though, that we all were new preppers at one point. Yes, every one of us was the novice prepper with little understanding and a lot of questions.



In deciding what and how to spend their money they ask many questions.

Some of those questions are:

  • Should I buy a gun for self-defense, and if so, what type should I get?
  • What kind of bag should I get for my bug out bag?
  • Can you suggest a good place to start looking for inexpensive land?
  • Should I buy an old car to survive an EMP?
  • I don’t know where to being. What should I do?
  • How much water should I store?
  • Should I buy gold or silver?

The questions go on, and on, and on.


No Such Thing as a Bad Question

Fortunately, every one of the questions prepper novices ask is a great question.

When it comes to being prepared and trying to understand better, there are almost no stupid questions.  After all, the questions are important because a new prepper is often looking to improve their preparedness on a budget. That is a budget of both time and money.

As is all too often the case, budgets are limited. Because they are limited, investing in the right preparedness items are crucial to success.


So, What's the Point?

So, you’re thinking “Okay Brian, I got it, but where is all of this going?”

All of this is going someplace. That place is right here with these points: 


You've Started Making the Best Preparedness Investment!

Everyone who is asking those questions has already made the best prepper investment possible.

They’ve invested in their mind.

They have committed their mind to being prepared.


The First Step

Often, the first step is the hardest. Plus, in a society where people who prepare are regularly snickered at, that first step is even more difficult.

That first step is the best preparedness investment because it’s the investment that will lead you down the road to improved preparedness, survivability, and resiliency.

It’s the step that will help ensure you and your family are successful, where others may fail.

It is taking responsibility for your future and working to overcome life’s many challenges.

It’s not being a lemming on the road to disaster.

It is the best preparedness investment you can make.

It’s what sets you apart from so many others.


I'm so Fortunate!

It’s why I feel privileged to be a member of this community with you. A community full of good people who want to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

So, congratulations!

Keep up the great work and keep on preppin’!



Never forget, you’re just one prep away.

    As a relatively new prepper I love your show. First of all you seem born to do this (podcast) because your voice and articulation are superb. I was made aware of your podcast thanks to a mention on Dale and Lisa’s show – and now I listen religiously. All of your podcasts are MUST listen for any prepper – and thank you for what you are doing. Please keep it going.
