EPISODE 264 DEALING WITH JOB LOSS

This is one of the most common disasters that preppers face and never prep for. The funny thing about job loss is that it can happen to anyone at any time.  Sure i know prepping for a pandemic, economic collapse, or a mad max scenario is way cooler. The thing is they are not very likely. job loss is one of the things that could happen to anyone anytime and for any reason. You could miss to much work, get hurt to seriously to perform your job , or the company you worked for could close up. The thing is may never see it coming.

Listen in today to hear my thoughts on job loss and how i survived ti as a prepper.
