Episode-2104- Nicole Sauce on the Prepping Mindset in Business

Nicole Sauce has had side hustles going her whole life. She developed a love of good food – and great coffee – in the Pacific Northwest. She started her career as a high school teacher, but quickly realized that system was so broken that she needed to do something more meaningful.

After 8 years of executive coaching for expatriates, Nicole discovered a world of libertarian policy think tanks and her life changed. For 13 years, Nicole has worked with public policy organizations that seek to make government smaller. However, working in the system against the system accepts their rules. Along the way, she fled the intolerance of Oregon for a more hospitable Tennessee.

Nicole loves showing people how to do forgotten homesteading arts such as canning and preserving, cheese-making, meat processing and more.

Nicole Sauce has a growing podcast, Living Free in Tennessee, has launched a local coffee roasting business, and provides marketing and communications support as well as website development services to folks who want to start their own side – or main – hustle.

  1. Jack,
    FYI. I am now a regular listener – turned on to your program by my son who lives in Dubai.

      Thanks so much, I hope I am doing okay for you this week. With my jacked up throat I am not on my A game. I said to my wife after Tuesday’s show, “I hope no one listens to that one as their first episode”.

      Fortunately Nicole was able to carry this one! She is a pretty awesome person.

  2. Your voice sounded great, Jack! Keep hitting the tea though. I used to resort to an herb (root) called bitter root back in the old days of singing more regularly.

  3. Nicole, if I wanted to store coffee, as a prep item, what’s the best way to do that? IN a freezer? And how long do you think it would last too?

    Just listening to a recent clip that Jack discussed about Puerto Rico seems to make sense to have cigarettes, alcohol AND coffee in reserve.

      Nicole may say otherwise but in my opinion….

      If coffee is vacuum sealed in anyway it is damn near going to last forever or at least 5 years.

      I have taken coffee and put it in a ball jar, sealed it, shoved it in a closet and tasted it side by side compared to the same brand 5 years later and I can’t tell the difference.

      Some people may be able to but I can’t, note this was done with whole bean, not ground. I have stored ground as well but haven’t tested it past two years.

  4. Nicole,

    Which hosting providers you recommend?

  5. If you are a true coffee snob, storing it vacuum sealed for more than about 6 months is a no go. The best way to store coffee long term is the store it unroasted, vacuum sealed –and then it lasts darn near forever. However most of us are not that snobby. So as Jack said: storing it for a really long time vacuum sealed should be just fine. Keep it in a dark cool place. But not the freezer.

  6. Hosting: wpengine or liquidweb are my favorites. Though it depends on your needs – shoot me an email with more deets!
