Episode-1300- Lisa Haywood on Prepping from a Legal Stand Point

Today is a two part episode.  We begin with a mini segment from me about PermaEthos and the new farm model.  All seems well until we look at investor “protections” and how that translates into tax consequences and eats into initial operation budgets.

Today in only about 15 minutes I will do two things.  First, I will tell you exactly how anti business this nation really is, how screwed up people really are and how completely off base business in America has become.  Second after defining the problem I think I will honestly blow you away with how we can use their own rules against them and still move forward, totally open with what we are doing and totally legal to boot.

Lisa Haywood is an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio. Her practice began as a personal injury (PI) attorney.  Yes, an ambulance chaser, but don’t hold that against her. PI gave her a great foundation in risk analysis and that is where she discovered “planning”, is not a matter of if something happens it was when.

Lisa has helped people recover from disaster from one of the more probable disasters that could happen to you … a car accident. She would resolve their case and hand them their settlement check, but she felt that was not enough.  She  wanted to teach her client’s from that point how to better prepare themselves to weather the storm if they got in another accident down the road. Her colleagues said she was crazy for that because it was essentially cutting off “repeat business”.

To many that seemed like such a backwards thought process yet Lisa knew it was a better way to do business.  So, she began offering to do a global risk analysis of her client’s lives to determine where the potential exposure was so they could plug the holes. That ultimately developed her practice into one of estate planning and legal education.

Today she joins us to discuss prepping from a legal stand-point. There are legal tools that you can implement to protect yourself, family, and your legacy. Being legally prepared involves not only planning your estate, but also preparing any businesses that you own for succession and disaster management, having legal experienced advisors on retainer in case of an emergency (this is especially important if you carry), and learning the state laws regarding self-defense, knives, and guns.

Episode-1290- Insurance a Hole in Many Preppers Lives with Jason Adkins

Insurance isn’t a sexy topic, it isn’t like growing a food forest, building a solar system or tweaking accuracy out of your AR or AK, but it is important.  The most common disasters people experience each day are…

  • Serious injury or death of a loved one
  • Loss of a job
  • Loss of a home due to storms or fires
  • Loss of your ability to work due to injury
  • Automotive accidents
  • Legal attacks

All of these areas are far more likely to hit you based on disaster probability then a major pandemic or say a global economic collapse.  So it makes sense to insure against such events where and as you can.  Jason Adkins is currently an insurance claims adjuster and previously worked as an insurance agent.  He joins us today to discuss insurance from a prepper point of view and how to make smart decisions about what to buy and what not to buy.

Episode-242- Overlooked Preps for Modern Survivalists

Today I go through a variety of items many preppers overlook or even if they have them in place they are not organized as part of their preps.  Some are simple and practical like certain overlooked forms of insurance.  We look at the simple value of spare sets of keys, contact lists, over the counter meds and more.

Don’t forget the pets, we talk about that a bit too today.  I also cover things like practic drills, safety deposit boxes (why you need one, you may not have thought of this), simple cheap AC invertors, simple back up battery power and more.
