Responsibility. "People get ready, there`s a train a coming!" no, not the late 60`s soul hit, but the one at the end of the tunnel as soon as the bulk, most everyone coming thru the opposite end, can`t exit either way as to avoid it. In my last blog, "Payroll-less Times Ahead! The Real New Normal?", I responded to the news that a certain company (soon to be a tweaking of the entire retail workforce and not "just a trend") has taken on "temps" to fill in for help at "peak" hours. This is a prime example of the difference between responsibility and self-reliance, the first being a "temp", the next being a hired-out consultant be it a multi-skilled handyperson or a seasonal worker. This is not knocking temps as money is tight and any work is better than none. Sooner or later you`ll want to have full control of your work under an entity of your choosing as this is beginning the entrepreneurial age.
What`s all this got to do with salt and prepper? It`s a different seasoning! The salt of the earth, the light of the world as in the New Testament; see Matthew 5:13-16. The prepper, as everyone has heard criticized, however low profile in keeping his powder dry ( and salt for taste/effectiveness ) and whatever light so shines through him, could well be a beacon of light having the vision to prepare for the worst as affordable as it`s better to have and not need than to need and not have. Thus far, preppers are the majority of the new small businesses in the entrepreneurial age as investing inventory money for themselves and close ties if nothing else. They`ll lead the way as prices go through the roof by commanding a high return of a profit when others didn`t plan! Become a low profile "prepper" entrepreneur without an inventory but a pantry and a backup drop-shipping supplier plan.
The 1-2 punch of a food business is simply you need food and income. A modest stockpile in your pantry reduces overhead and your clientelle can get online and get product drop-shipped. This reduces your chance of losing inventory. Remember to get right with God who is in control whether we win or lose the free enterprise system as it might get plundered by the food snatchers/patrol. Kill 2 birds with one stone.
Lastly, we`re adding new recommendations you won`t find on the link pages. We`ve expanded prospecting for unique retirement opportunities I find via email, two of which came along recently that may or may not be for the entire cascaded middle class yet are essential in adapting to the smoke & mirrors economy in their own ways. One offers a seven year plan for those over 60 edited for a swanky Florida beach club; the other is an out of
seemingly nowhere book by an authority of radical ( to the old school system of dead in the water income pursuits ) ways to make a life not just a living. Simply email me at [email protected] for one or both and I`ll forward it to you.
