There are three type of people in this world today; those who prep, those who don’t and those that are on the fence.
Those people that are in the third group are interesting in that they recognize the need for emergency and disaster preparedness yet they cannot decide whether or not to commit for one reason or another. Whether it is a financial concern, an available time concern or just a fear of being labeled by friends or family, these folks cannot make the leap without a gentle nudge. The “nudge” is the reason for this article.
As a prepper based business owner I am often in conversations with people about emergency and disaster preparedness. Some of these conversations are very intense and exciting when everyone involved is already on board with prepping and ideas are flying back and forth. Even the conversations with people that are a little over the top can be exciting and fun to be a part of, to an extent. The majority of my conversations, however, are very serious and low key.
Most of the people that are on the fence about prepping just need to know that there are good, valid reasons for it and that not everyone involved in the prepper subculture is certifiably insane. If you take offense to that comment then you haven’t been paying attention to the very popular and very commercialized “windows into prepping” that appear on television every Tuesday night.
So what do people need? I think they need a simple explanation as to why prepping is important. This is my offering to sway their thoughts.
