Episode-1223- Starting the Journey from Grasshopper to Ant (orig epi 298) — 10 Comments

  1. This is a special episode for me. After listening to this episode I decided to start actively prepping. Only two months later I lost my job.
    In those two months I was able to do a lot.
    Food preps help. Budgeting helped. We were already debt free except the mortgage.
    I read and learned a lot about prepping. Now I have a full time job, I will be going to nursing school, we have six months of food storage. We both have awesome term life.

    Thanks Uncle Jack

    • This has always been one of my favorites, I have listened to it several times with different people over the years

  2. In addition, this episode put me in the right mindset.Having the right mindset was key when I lost my job. I will never forget this episode.

  3. Jack,
    Your picking some good ones. Nice to revisit what got some of us started.

    Nice to beable to listen and re-think things again

    Thanks for all you do!

  4. I use this whole format that is laid out here in my talks, topic, and home work for my Survival Group here in Wyoming. Great stuff as always brother Jack.

  5. This was the first episode I listened to. I remember thinking how simple the lesson of the grasshopper and ant was. I wondered how we (as a people) had forgotten about hard work and preparedness. This one set us on the right path. My husband had been listening for a few months and was trying to get me into it…I’m so glad I listened. Our lives have changed, our debt is gone and I am now able to stay at home with our two boys and build our homestead. Thanks!
