Jack Spirko: The Road To Resilience

Requires a good map. Got one?
Sunday, January 31, 2016, 1:17 PM

Continuing our focus on solutions, this week we're joined on the podcast by Jack Spirko. His daily podcast focuses on practical, actionable steps each of us can take to "live a better life, if times get tough or even if they don't" -- a mission nicely aligned with the one we pursue here at Peak Prosperity.

In this wide-ranging discussion, Jack and Chris discuss the need for spreading awareness of the Three Es, the professional challenges in doing so, and how individuals can go about pursuing both security and prosperity in the face of the likely disruptive changes to come. » Read more

Step 0: The Fundamentals - Emergency Preparedness

The instability of our global systems as laid out within The Crash Course allows us to make the following prediction confidently: The Next 20 Years Will Be Completely Unlike The Last 20

With change being the one thing we can count on, it makes great sense to prepare for it.

But what kind of change? And when will it arrive? Any how disruptive will it be?

We can conjecture as best we're able (and that's what we do on a daily basis here at PeakProsperity.com), but the actual details of the future will remain unknowable until they unfold.

Emergency Preparedness & Outdoor Adventure Planning Checklist

Thinking through the essentials for times of need
Wednesday, March 27, 2013, 7:38 PM

For most people, planning for emergencies is similar to planning for a camping trip or any other outdoor adventure where the normal conveniences of home are not available. The biggest difference is determining whether to plan for being away from home or in your own residence – or perhaps both. The equipment to include in your emergency kit or camping supplies list will be very comparable. Differences and variations will generally depend upon the severity and length of time you anticipate for your emergency scenario. Long term emergencies and outdoor explorations will require, in addition to this list, more extensive planning and provisioning. Your skill level and knowledge set for survival techniques and resourcefulness will also play a big role in determining your needs. » Read more

Learn about the dangers and procedures for safely cleaning up after major disasters and hurricanes.  Be aware of structural damage to properties, exposure to chemical and biological hazards, gas leaks and fumes from clean up equipment, and use extreme caution and safety practices with saws and tools.  You survived the storm, survive the clean up process also.
