Darren Pawski prepares financially

Many of the same principles used to guide the most serious of preppers bear more than just a passing resemblance to the financial preparedness principles advocated by Darren Pawski. While preppers discuss how to best prepare for various situations in which some sort of disaster has led to chaos and turmoil, financial planners such as Pawski recommend that clients consider a variety of contingency plans that ensure financial preparedness regardless of the circumstance.

Preppers also advocate for the diversification of assets, though a financial planner will define the term a bit differently than a prepper would. A prepper would likely be referring to resources most at risk of becoming scarce as a result of some unexpected tumult, while a financial planner would be talking about the diversification of investments in order to ensure the client is able to mitigate the risk that could be associated with a single-minded investment focus.

Obviously, the most recognizable similarity between preppers and financial planners such as Pawski is the fact that those who listen to the advice provided by either group are going to be much better off for the future as a result of working to create a sense of long-term security in the present. It’s often hard for people to look past what is immediately in front of them, but working to prepare for the future is absolutely necessary independent of any situation or circumstance.

Dr. Raouf Farag, Paint Color Choices and Mirrored and Metallic Nail Trends

dr raouf farag nail polish preppingWhen you wear a nail polish due largely in part to its exceptional durability, it becomes increasingly necessary to makestyle choices that are versatile enough to suit just about any occasion imaginable. And I must also note that I just so happen to be an individual who is proud to find just as much enjoyment in a highly detailed approach to preparing for a formal event as in the simple selection of an outfit based on nothing more than the comfort it provides. Since I am so frequently involved in social events that come with such a wide range of fashion demands, I have found it necessary to choose a highly versatile polish that also reflects a fashion-forward approach. Surprisingly, I found a great deal of inspiration during a visit to my doctor.

At a routine visit with Dr. Raouf Farag, I noted the change in paint color and complimented his choice. He laughed while recalling how long it took for the office to reach an agreement on an ideal color scheme, and expressed relief that he would never need to engage in a similar process with all of the stainless steel elements used throughout his practice. When he noted how stainless steel matches everything and never goes out of style, I immediately knew how to solve my nail polish dilemma.

Since that visit with my doctor, I have experimented with both mirrored and metallic nail polishes while using mostly minimalist designs. I was thrilled to discover that a minimalist approach to metallic polish met my needs perfectly. I wasable to leave my polish unchanged regardless of the social affair and received countless compliments on my nails across the full spectrum of those events. For someone who appreciates fashion-forward trends as well as versatility and durability, it is quite rare to find an ideal approach that meets those seemingly disparate requirements.

Investors Underground Discusses Value of Preparing for Full Range of Market Conditions

Investors Underground is a community built on the simple principle that day traders of all experience levels benefit from the free exchange of ideas, strategies and beliefs regarding the ideal approach to successful stock market investing. The company offers a full range of services that includes daily scan sheets and watch lists, and it reviews the most effective day trading strategies each week during the webinar sessions made available to members with the goal of encouraging a continuing approach to education.

In promoting the value of continued educational growth among day traders of every experience level, Investors Underground has wisely reinforced the idea that preparing for the full range of potential circumstances — both positive and negative — is an ideal approach for ensuring long-term success in day trading as well as any other kind of stock market investment strategy.

The first three months of 2016 should really underscore this point among investors, as the worst-case scenario was very nearly a reality as the stock market plunged precipitously before recently regaining its strength. While many investors endured a stressful 12-week period, the community of day traders at Investors Underground had prepared for this worst-case scenario and were thus able to enjoy a great deal of success in spite of the poor market conditions.

The Essential Nature of Proper Preparation Applies Far and Wide

No one wants to face a massive upheaval in which resources suddenly become scarce and we must fend for ourselves without the technological comforts and conveniences we have become so accustomed to, but that does not mean that we should not bother to prepare for such a scenario. After all, the only thing worse than having to face these kinds of circumstances would be the possibility of facing these circumstances without the benefit of advance preparation. The simple strategies we use now to prepare for a wide range of disastrous circumstances will make our lives so much easier in the long run, particularly since the time needed to adequately prepare represents a relatively small commitment. If disaster never comes our way, then the time spent in preparation will not have been wasted and we will come away with a host of useful skills and knowledge.

Doomsday scenarios are not the only situations in which thorough planning and preparation offers a tremendous long-term benefit. As Halden Zimmermann points out in his new book on blogging, preparation is the key to achieving long-term financial success and ensuring that the work done in the present leads to increasing rewards in the future. This philosophy is easily applied to all circumstances whether they are relatively trivial or matters of life and death. It simply makes too much sense to invest the time we have now in order to make our lives easier in the future as a result of our thorough planning and preparation.

Dana Sibilsky Gives Us A Few Preparation Tips On Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is a subject that not many people know about because it’s not exactly a very popular activity. When was the last time you heard someone say, “Hey, I went scuba diving this weekend,”?  Probably not very recently. Today, we are covering the subject on scuba diving and to prepare for your plunge into the deep blue abyss.

If you are an avid scuba diver such as Dana SIbilsky who considers scuba diving and skydiving to be merely hobbies, there are two things you should know. The first thing is you are hardcore and while many people would say you’re crazy, they will also salute you. The second thing you should know is that you are living life on the edge while others sit at their desk and dream of such adrenaline rushing adventures.

If you are not experienced in scuba diving, this article is for you, so where do we start? The first and foremost thing is to fine tune your skills. You’ll have to reprogram your thinking that you don’t hold your breath underwater, it is safe to breathe from your mouth. It can be difficult to get used to, but shouldn’t take no more than a few minutes.

Give yourself a checklist of everything you could need for your dive as far as gear goes. You’ll need your mask, BCD, snorkel, the wetsuit, light, reel, flippers. It would also be a good idea to start building your own first aid kit. Being in the deep waters is fascinating and most people have a bad habit of touching things under the water they find interesting. If you don’t know what it is, DO NOT TOUCH! Some sea life could be razor sharp and cut you deeply or even be poisonous.

Dana Sibilsky, whom I mentioned earlier, also says it is crucial to have a plan. Discuss with whoever your driving instructor is what is the depth you’ll be diving and figure out a communication plan. Once underwater, it’s difficult to communicate when you see signs of potential danger. If you spot a shark, all you can do with your mouth is breathe and scream through your breathing device. Get a communications plan and stay safe and have fun!

This Animal Sanctuary Can Teach You How To Prep Your Home

cleanclean

It’s common courtesy to prepare your house when you know you have one or more people coming to stay with you. You have to prepare the residence by cleaning floors through vacuuming and mopping, cleaning the beds by washing the sheets, clean rooms and bathrooms.

Another good tip for preparing the house for company with plans of staying a few days is to ensure you have a substantial amount of food. There are few things as embarrassing as realizing you didn’t do your grocery shopping before your company arrived. Grocery shopping isn’t exactly something many people want to do. For some, it can be time with themselves and that time alone could be therapeutic. For others, grocery shopping is a joyless hassle that they will happily and quickly pass off to someone else or just eat fast food for a few days.

According to recent news, Animal Sanctuary of St. Croix Valley is making preparations for new animal additions to their furry family. The Animal Sanctuary would prepare their quarters for these new animals in need the same way you should prepare your home for a visitor. They will ensure that the animals have food, water, shelter as well as anything else the animals may need long before the animals are taken in. This Animal Sanctuary is a great example of home prepping and hospitality.

Another great example is to observe how a hotel was to treat you as their guest. When you walk in, assuming you called ahead to let them know you were coming, they will need a few hours to get everything ready for you. When you get your room key cards and walk into your room, it is already furnished, decorated and comes with everything you could need, except food in most cases. The hotel staff will prepare your room with fresh clean sheets on the bed with the bed perfectly made for you. The shower will have soap, shampoo and conditioner and the bathroom comes stocked with clean towels and toilet paper.

Now that i’ve given you a few examples of how to prepare your home for guests, get your checklist ready and we will go over each one. Be sure that:

  • Your home has been cleaned in all rooms.
  • The bathrooms are stocked with towels and toilet paper.
  • The kitchen has enough food.

It’s a simple checklist, but it should keep you busy for a few hours. Happy prepping!

 

Prepare For Your Interview With Karl Jobst

When preparing for an interview, the best thing you can do is know who you are and what you have to offer to the company. When you are asked questions, try to answer with a memory of what you have done in the past and how you have given 100% effort.

The truth is, every company wants to hire a super human. For example, if you are asked to what would you do in a tough situation where you needed to do something by a deadline, but a customer also needed yourself, reflect back on a memory you had of a similar situation and how you handled that.

One interview about interviews with Karl Jobst DDS could serve as a tool to help you prepare for your next big meeting that just may help you hit the bullseye.

Be Prepared

untitled (114) images290WFKIOThe boy scout motto to be prepared is the basis of prepping.  I hope the all of the Preppers are wrong but if they are right I would be in trouble.  I would not be alone.  Most people live pay check to pay check and don’t have a lot of food stored away.  If you spend a fortune on a doomsday bunker and the end never comes then you are wasting money.  If doomsday comes and you can make it to that bunker then you will be in a much better position the then majority of the average people.  I will hope that the whole Prepper thing is unneeded and try to just hang on.  Dana Sibilsky is a Prepper and believes that the end of days is near.

Prepper Opposite

untitled (200) untitled (199)What is the opposite of a Prepper?  I guess it would be an Non-Prepper.  A Non-Prepper would be a person completely unprepared for any problems that may happen.  I think most of us assume that the world will not change. We think that everything will be alright so why prepare for something that will not happen.  Preppers are pessimistic about our future and feel the need to be prepared for the pend disaster. The best way…I don’t know.  I want to believe that we will all be OK.  Consolidated Credit is betting on the future being OK as they want to get paid back.

Are Preppers Nuts?

untitled (11) untitled (10) imagesSZ6CZ9DYAre Preppers nuts or are they the smart ones.  I guess it is good to be prepared but do Preppers take it too far?  I want to say both are right depending in the future.  If the future continues without a break down of society then the Preppers are nuts.  If it all falls apart then we will be looking for a friendly www.peopleperhour.com for help.  I say we should be aware of the world problems but I don’t buy into the mania that the Preppers do.  Home For Life Animal Sanctuary may be a good place if Preppers fail.  I wouldn’t think that Preppers would take you in.
