Right now I specifically would love to add a supplier of mushroom spawn.  This is one I have tried to acomplish for a long time and it has led me to believe most suppliers are spending a LOT of time with magic mushrooms!

The truth though is I am open to anything high quality that I feel my audience would benefit from and appreciate.  Just email me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with TSPC discount partner in the subject line and tell me a bit about your offering.

If you have been on the fence about MSB this is just another example of the high quality discounts I work to negotiate for members.

Hawk Ammo Added to the MSB

True Precision Ammo!

True Precision Ammo!

Hawk Ammo – Offers all MSB members 7% off all ammunition purchases by using the code that has already been added to the benefits page of the MSB.

Hawk Ammo is designed and constantly tested to provide ammunition with the best accuracy possible with various handguns from full size to compacts.

They have a selection of popular rifle calibers also. Custom and bulk orders are also welcome. You can find Hawk Ammo at hawkammo.com

Hawk Ammo was formed at the beginning of 2013 with the goal of making the highest quality ammunition available to the public and be competitively priced with other premium ammunition. All of the ammunition that they sell has been optimized to give the best accuracy and function in each caliber.

All Hawk ammunition undergoes an extensive quality control check during manufacturing and all ammunition is test fired to check grouping, function and cleanliness. This results in ammunition that performs better than other commercial factory ammunition that was loaded by a machine.

If you have been considering becoming part of the MSB this is yet another great example of the value it represents.

Two New Additions to the MSB

If you check out the MSB Page you will see I have recently updated it with all the partners that offer discounts.  Really check out how long the list is!

And let me tell you I am adding more by next week!

We now have a total of 59 supporting vendors in the MSB, many pay for an annual membership for themselves because they personally see the value in it.  If you are buying items in the self sufficiency space every year the MSB more then pays for itself, with discounts on everything from herbal supplements to long term storage foods to tactical items and as listed above even gardening supplies.

Two New Awesome Partners Added to the MSB

Two New Additions to the MSB

I have just updated the MSB with two great new discounts for all members.  These are both business strait out of the TSP community.

These are American Made products being made by the people that sell them.  They are top quality and highly unique.  Ironically both involve wood work, though both are quite different.

I really do work hard to increase the MSBs value on an ongoing basis.  Rather than just another survival supplier reseller I am trying to find unique and interesting products that will appeal to our members.

If you have a company with such products please email me and let me know what you would be interested in doing.  Please know I don’t take everyone.  I look for top quality and unique attributes that will appeal to self sufficient individuals.  I believe these two new partners are excellent examples of that.

New MSB Updates 2-2-15

Geoff Lawton is one of my Greatest Teachers

MSB Members get 100 Dollars off of Geoff Lawton’s PDC

First many have been asking for the discount for Geoff Lawton’s PDC.  I try not to add his code to the MSB until right before he opens his course so I don’t end up with a dozen how do I order the PDC emails.  Anyway Geoff is opening his course either tomorrow or Saturday.

I am not sure it has usually been Friday but his email says February 7th.  That might be the 7th in Australia though.

In any event the discount code is now in the MSB, you can learn more about Geoff and get a ton of awesome free videos at GeoffLawton.com

The discount I negotiated for MSB member is 100 dollars which is two full years of MSB by itself.  Geoff is an amazing teacher and I am continuing to get discounts to his course for MSB members who want to avail themselves of his teaching.

While we are now technically in competition with Geoff with our courses at PermaEthos, I have decided that I will always support Geoff’s efforts as well, as he is my greatest teacher and mentor in the field of Permaculture.

MSB Members Get 50% off Luke Calahan's Guide to the Microgreen Business

Next up is Luke Callahan’s Guide to the Micro Greens Business – Did you know that you could be up and running with a Permaculture style business in just a few weeks for perhaps a few hundred dollars invested.  That with some hustle that business could earn you a thousand dollars a week or more.

Luke Callahan did it, in fact he made 2,000 a week plus selling micro greens and it put it all into his eBook called, The Complete Guide to Growing and Selling Microgreens.  This really isn’t an eBook it is a complete and proven business plan, one that has already worked for Luke.  And how is this for a discount?  50% yep you can get his 64 dollar Guide for only 32 dollars.  To learn more go to http://localbusinessplans.com/microgreens/  to hear a full interview with Luke on the Permaculture Voices Podcast go to http://www.permaculturevoices.com/87

Five New Companies Added to the MSB

New Stuff Has Been Added to the MSB

New Stuff Has Been Added to the MSB

I have been working hard to increase the value of the MSB and today am happy to let you know that 5 new partners have been added.

I am constantly looking for high quality unique vendors that offer things you would likely want to buy anyway.  I work with them to get my members significant discounts that you can’t just get anywhere else.

I personally vet each company and the products they offer by direct personal purchase or investigating the response of community members who have done business with them.  In most instances I have personally done business with many of these companies at full price before even discussing a discount with them.  Or I have heard enough good things from multiple community members to know they are solid and worthy of MSB inclusion.

In this round of additions here are five new great companies and products with big discounts for all members.

  • Doctor’s Nutrition – I first had Doctor Lewis and his wife Janet on TSP a bit over a year ago, and then a second time about 6 months later, you can hear those interviews here.  Many of you gave their science based, results oriented approach a try and the feed back has been 100% positive.  My wife started working with them as well and has had amazing results.  I have now negotiated a discount on all their supplements for the MSB.   The discount is 10% off all products except lab work.  The discount code is already in the MSB on the Benefits page.  You can use it when you order on the web or when you call in an order.  Please note that Doctor’s Nutrition only sells supplements to registered users and they prefer to work with lab results before making recommendations.  I can personally tell you their approach works!  Learn more at http://www.drsnutrition.org/
  • Pretty Loaded – Beth Warford is the founder of PrettyLoaded.org.  A company that provides training specifically targeted to women on firearms, concealed carry, self defense, situational awareness and more.  They have released their first video based seminar series on situational awareness and it is outstanding.  It may be targeted to women but men can learn just as much from it.  I am confident that this seminar will save lives and it is something you should make sure the women in your life see.  The course is 99 dollars and I got the MSB a discount of 20% discount and the code is already in the MSB.  Learn more at www.PrettyLoaded.org and you can hear Beth on TSP at this link.
  • Andrew McKnight – I met Andrew McKnight at the first ever PermaEthos Fall Festival and fell in love with his music at that time.  His music tells amazing stories based on the joy and pain of life in rural Appalachia.  As the son of a coal miner and of a solider who did a bit of both professions myself this music speaks to me directly, but I think Andrew’s music will speak to you as well.  I have negotiated a 15% discount on all of Andrew’s music for you guys.  Just use code that is in the MSB at check out.  Learn more at http://www.andrewmcknight.net I really hope to have Andrew  play at the TSP Homestead some day during one of our events.  You can hear me talk about his music and play one of his songs in this episode of TSP.
  • Lenwood Leather – You don’t want to be let down when depending on your gear, you want (and need) the very best. Lenwood provides the highest quality hand made equipment possible. Lenwood products are built with pride right here in these USA by Americans who know the value of a hard day’s work. Lenwood offers a 20% site-wide discount at LenwoodLeather.com just use the code from the MSB benefits page at check out.
  • HiddenTruckBox.com – Provides unique storage solutions for Ford F150 owners. These hidden truck boxes are mounted under the hood, and discretely keep your tools safe from the prying eyes of thieves. Take back you truck bed, and get a Hidden Truck Box. MSB members receive an additional 10% OFF with discount code from the MSB Benefits page at hiddentruckbox.com

Also Dan Malone who is the ownere of HiddenTruckBox.com set up a Community Business Directory on the TSP Wiki. TSP Community Members should add their side businesses in preparation for holiday shopping.

If listeners are going to spend money this holiday season, what better way than within our community.

This directory should be for dedicated listeners and friends of survival podcast, not just random links to other survival websites that don’t care about our us.)

It also serves another purpose.  Many times people with new businesses inquire about an MSB discount opportunity.  To protect my listeners and members I only take established companies as partners.  This directory can become sort of a launch point and a proving ground.  Once you have a few dozen happy customers or so if you provide something unique we can talk about getting you into the MSB.

So there you go 5 new and 5 totally different and unique new supporting vendors for the MSB.  If you haven’t signed up yet consider doing so you can do that here.

When I say that I am constantly trying to improve the MSB value this is what I mean.  New and unique companies with great and proven products at real discounts.

This Compact Gasifier Can Provide Lots of Power

I am personally very excited about this product and to be bringing you a great discount on it. TacticalWoodGas.com offers full wood gas systems that are easy to use and very portable. They also offer custom DC generators to run off of their gasifiers. I scored a huge discount on the generators for the MSB. 10% off their generators.

And now back to my vacation.

Spring Sale on MSB – Discount Code is “spring14”

Join the MSB Today

Join the MSB Today and Get 20 Dollars Off Your First Year

Spring has officially sprung, at least in the south so I decided to run a spring MSB sale.  With this sale you can get your first year of TSP Members Brigade for the next ten days for only 30 Dollars, which is a savings of 40%. Use discount code “spring14″ to get your first year for only 30 dollars.

This sale runs until midnight on Sunday the 20th and as usual I will not offer the discount after the sale closes. This is a great discount on an already great product.

You can learn more and join the MSB Here. Those who wish to pay by mail can just write the discount code on the mail in form. Those paying by silver will receive 2 extra months (14 vs 12) instead of a direct discount.

Yes you can pay for multiple years if you pay by cash, check or silver and apply the discount to every year.  If you pay online you can’t use this code to renew early, sorry it creates a logistical nightmare to do that.  Let me just say in the words from the Electric Company song on PBS when I was a kid, “I would if I could, but I can’t so I won’t, please forgive me if I don’t.”

That said if you currently have an expired membership, you can use this code to add a new subscription to your old account.  Just log in to the MSB, you will see a link saying your account has expired.  Use the code “spring14” during renewal and select MSB 12 Month Renew as your term of membership.

Let me just close with, while the MSB is already a great value, when I return from vacation later this month I am launching a full on summer time blitz to gain new discount vendors.  The value of the MSB will definitely go up in 2014 a great deal, so if you have been thinking about it, now may be a great time to get in on a great deal and help support the work we do at TSP at the same time.
