Are You a Closet Prepper? Don’t Be. Let Me Explain Why.

Prepping Coming Out of Closet

Are you a closet prepper?

If your answer is yes, then read on. I will explain in this article why you should never have to fear being embarrassed or judged by telling a co-worker, family member, or friend that you’re a prepper. Survivalism and the tools for the trade is some cool stuff. Don’t get caught with Prepper stigma!

There is nothing more heartbreaking than thinking about you or your family not being prepared for the worst — weather its marshall law, a catastrophic natural occurrence, EMP (electromagnetic pulse), a solar flare that could put us back to the 19th century, or another type of disaster. Many lives will be lost. Not having some preparations made means you will not have anything of value for trading with others looking to stay alive.

Do you think that shiny iPhone or fancy sports car will be worth anything if there was a major disaster caused by an EMP or natural disaster? Believe me, they won’t!
