Most preppers are not like what you see on Doomsday Preppers with Renaissance Era looking castles or bunkers buried in the middle of nowhere. Realistically, preppers don't have the money or the resources to afford that opportunity. Instead, they can be found in cities throughout the country living on an extremely low budget.
The problem is that if a collapse scenario were to happen then surviving in the city is going to be challenging and damn near impossible. As a result, preppers would be forced out of their own homes to escape danger.
Not everyone can afford bug out locations, bunkers, prepper gear and supplies. As a result, many loved ones could be lost in a collapse scenario leaving many defenseless striving for survival alone. This thought leaves many preppers discouraged because they believe that in their current situation they are not likely to survive.
This is why I wrote The Strategic Prepper. In my book, I share why many preppers will probably die when a collapse scenario happens. But it isn't because of the lack of money. It is the lack of a strategic plan.
With a strategic plan, you can live a preparedness lifestyle on a budget and still thrive when SHTF. Despite this fact, many preppers don't know how to put together a strategic preparedness plan. In this book, I will share how to put together a plan on a budget that will guarantee survival should SHTF.
