Why I Became A
"Doomsday Prepper" And
Why You Should Too...

NOTICE: This Page Will Be Removed In:

Last month more than 3,500 of you asked me to produce a training session on the topic of emergency preparedness with my Navy Seal buddy Cade...

Well we managed to put something awesome together for you, and if history is any guide to the future, it might end up as the most valuable post I’ve ever written, so I hope you pay attention and take action...

Now before we dive in, I have a quick question for you...

Have you seen that TV show that’s been on a few years now called, “Doomsday Preppers”? It features people from around the US who are filling every nook and cranny in their house with food, water, and guns, and building bunkers in their backyard...

And you’re not quite sure if these are some of the craziest bastards on the planet… Or maybe the smartest?

Well I have a confession to make…

 I’m one of them.

And not only that, but so are all of my friends and mentors who are infinitely richer and more successful than I am.

For example…

Kyle Bass is the hedge-fund billionaire who cashed-in on his prediction of the housing crash.

He’s purchased what amounts to a fort: a forty-thousand-square-foot ranch house on thousands of acres in the middle of nowhere, with its own water supply, and an arsenal of automatic weapons, sniper rifles, small explosives to equip a battalion.

Porter Stansberry, founder of the most successful financial newsletter publications in the world has given the same advice, and frequently mentions his mountain house that has its own power supply, water supply, and a significant armory.

Doug Casey, one of the world’s greatest investment speculators has built a 1,360 acre getaway in the remote mountains of Argentina.

My friend Brian is an extremely successful entrepreneur in Houston and one of the smartest people I’ve ever met.

His company handles all of the food distribution for major airports like Heathrow and Denver. He drives a Ferrari 458 and travels the world. But over the past few years he’s also built a ranch near mine to serve as his family retreat when things go south. Just like the others, he’s armed to the teeth.

And the topic comes up on a monthly basis with my investment mastermind group here in Austin… A group of eight business owners who control over $1 Billion in assets.

So what gives?

Why Are So Many Of the Smartest
And Richest People In The World Preparing
For Some Kind Of Survival Scenario?

Well it’s probably not why you think…

Most of the people you’ll find on the Doomsday Prepper TV show live in a constant state of fear… Fear of a plague, fear of nuclear war, fear of an asteroid impact or an EMP burst from a solar-flare.

They’re wasting their life waiting for the world to end.

On the other end of the spectrum, you have the eternal optimists…

These are the people who say, “that hasn’t happened yet, so it’s never going to happen…” Or, “I live in a constant state of abundance and I only attract positive things into my life…”

These people have grown up in the bubble of white-picket-fenced Americana, and have never been exposed to the cold indifference of Mother Nature or the dark sides of humanity.

Both groups of people allow their lives to be totally dominated by their feelings and emotions… Either fear, or ignorant bliss.

Well the rich and successful preppers of the world, approach things a little differently…

They treat the decision to prepare for a disaster as an investment decision based on “asymmetrical risk vs reward.”

That simply means they look for opportunities to take the smallest risk possible, for the largest return possible.

Tony Robbins actually talks about this concept in his new book…

Basically, extremely successful investors look for deals where the potential reward is much, much, higher than the money you risk.

While the average person puts their money at risk for a chance at a 10% return, these guys only put their money on the table if they have a chance at a 500% return or more.

Well guys like Porter, Doug, Brian, Kyle, and myself… Look at prepping the same way.

It’s not an emotional decision. It’s an investment decision where the risk/reward curve is off the charts.

The risk of spending a little money and time to make sure your family has what it needs during an unexpected disaster, is infinitely small compared to the reward… They remain safe and alive.

We all spend thousands of dollars per year on car insurance, health insurance, life insurance, which is designed so save and protect the loss of dirty pieces of green paper.

And yet 9/10 people will ignore the one form of insurance that is designed to literally save the life of you and your family… A few basic preparedness supplies.

But there’s another reason why the wealthiest and most successful people I know are preppers…

When it comes to succeeding in any area of life or business, they’re concerned with the answer to one single question, more than any other…

And it’s not, “How much will I benefit?”

It’s… “What’s the worst-case scenario? How bad could it get?”

When we sit around our conference table examining a deal, that’s the most important question we ask, because if you know the worst-case scenario ahead of time, you can make plans to avoid it.

So what is a reasonable worst-case scenario right now for you, myself, and the rest of society?

Well outside of everyday life and death risks like driving a car, there is one major risk that trumps all others…

Human nature.

If You Haven’t Noticed, You And I Are Living
Through A Very, Very, Special Period In History...

In fact, it has a name…

It’s called, the “Fourth Turning”, and this recurring window in history was discovered by researchers William Strauss and Neil Howe, after studying the dynamics of human civilization, all the way back to Ancient Greece…

Taking place every 80 to 100 years, Fourth Turnings are always punctuated by an inescapable period of crisis that changes the course of society and humanity for the next century.

If you think that sounds like some kind of hocus-pocus, think again…

In order to demonstrate this amazing phenomenon for you today, I need you to walk out into your garage, crank up your time machine, and turned it back to the year 1780.

When you arrive, you’ll find the newly established colonies of America in the midst of a crisis…

The American Revolutionary War is underway, as a fledgling nation fights for its independence from England.

Dodging the musket bullets being fired by the Red Coats, you climb back in your time machine, and set the date for 80 years into the future.

+ 80 Years:

When you arrive, you find yourself in a beautiful open field, but once again the sound of gunfire fills the air.

The year is 1861, and you are witnessing one of the first battles of the American Civil War.

Do you think this is all just a coincidence?

+70 Years:

Then jump forward into the future another 70 years, and you will find yourself standing on Wall Street outside the New York Stock Exchange.

But instead of the normal hustle and bustle that fills the city streets, panic is in the air…

The year is 1929.

The Great Depression has begun and over the next three years, the Dow will lose 89% of its value.

And just a few more years from now, a young man from Hungary named Adolf will use this period of equally great change in Germany, to rise to power.

This phenomenon happens like clockwork, and if you still don’t believe me, get this…

Neil and William wrote the book in 1997.

In the book they predicted that the next Fourth Turning would begin around 2007, and be sparked by a financial crisis in the US.

+80 Years:

They were dead-on.

The year is now 2008… The Dow Jones has just crashed 777 points, the largest single-day drop in history, setting off a global financial crisis that continues to this day.

America has once again entered its Fourth Turning, which will last 15-20 years. 

These periods only come about once in a lifetime, and when they do, massive power vacuums are created by the political change that always comes with a national crisis.

Everywhere you look, you can see these vacuums being created today as governments around the world are being turned over at incredible speeds…

In the last 48 months alone we’ve the fall of governments in Iceland, Tunisia, Egypt, Kosovo, Greece, Libya, and Crimea just to name a few…

But the biggest question mark of all… One that has the power to end life on this planet, is how the US and Russia will decide to handle their escalating disagreement over the Ukraine.

It isn’t looking good…

Two weeks ago Poland called up their reserves and instituted the draft in anticipation of a war with Russia.

The Ukrainian government has done the same, drafting over 100,000 men in 2015 alone, and just this week, they started raiding university dorm rooms, forcing students into military duty at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute (KPI).

Why does this matter to you and I?

Because Poland is a member of NATO. If Russia attacks Poland, the US is bound by treaty to join the conflict and defend them.

The world is heating up and will soon reach a boil with unknown consequences, as this will be the first Fourth Turning in history where the conflicting countries have weapons capable of destroying the planet.

That’s exactly why scientists from around the world moved the “Doomsday Clock” one minute closer to midnight this past January. (Armageddon).

Nuclear confrontation is a threat the US government is taking very seriously.

In fact, a Department of Homeland Security funded drill took place last week in New Mexico to simulate a nuclear attack on the US-Mexico border and how authorities would deal with thousands of people crossing over from Mexico to escape the catastrophe.

In my investor group, a high-altitude nuclear detonation above US soil is our worst-case scenario.

When you consider the growing conflicts in Eastern Europe, and the fact that it’s only a matter “when”, not “if”, a terror cell gets their hands on a nuclear device, the threat has reached a level that warrants action.

This Is The Threat The Government Fears The Most...

What most people don’t realize, is that the biggest impact from a nuclear weapon does not come from the blast itself, or the radioactive fallout, but from the electromagnetic pulse wave (EMP), the detonation creates.

Basically, an EMP overloads the circuits of electronic devices which includes the electric power grid, modern cars and trucks, cell phones, computers, generators, etc, destroying them in the process.

As you can see here, a single nuclear missile detonated at high altitude would produce an EMP wave large enough to cover the entire continental United States.

The entire country would be thrown back into the stone-ages in the single blink of an eye, without a single bomb ever touching the ground.

Imagine what your life would be like if the country suddenly lost all power…

And let’s not sensationalize this. Let’s just be logical and realistic…

It’s a Tuesday afternoon in May.

You’re 25 miles from your home at work.


The kids are at school.

And all of the sudden, everything goes out…

The lights… Your computer… Everything just goes silent. Suddenly outside your window you hear the squeal of screeching tires, the sound of dozens of cars crashing together, and screams from people who are panicking to get out of their way.

The EMP wave from a nuclear detonation 300 miles above you in space has fried the circuits of the vehicles below, rendering them useless.

You pull out your phone to try and call your spouse who’s on the other side of town, but it’s dead.

The elevators are out, so everyone in your office nervously winds their way down 50 flights of stairs. Once on the street, you find thousands of people who’ve exited the surrounding buildings.

Most people have no idea what’s happened, but a few have started to piece it together. Word starts to spread, and anxiety starts to build.

Your find your car, but it won’t start. None of them will.

At this point, you’re only thought is about your kids. They’re 20 miles away in school. You have no idea if they’re okay, and you have no way to call them.

And this is when the panic starts to really set in, because you realize that you have no other choice but to start walking towards them.

It’s going to take you at least two full days to walk 20 miles, and you’re wearing high-heels or business shoes and a suit.

You have no water and no food. The entire power grid is down, which means the public water system is down. The water fountains have stopped, and the toilets won’t flush.

1,000,000 other people in the city have all started to reach the same conclusion, and in less than an hour, full-scale looting of every store in the city has begun.

As people start to understand what’s taken place, they realize that this is their one and only chance to acquire any kind of food or supplies.

Once night falls, you’ll have no light, nowhere to sleep, and no way to protect yourself.

If you’re lucky enough to survive the first 48 hours and make it home, you’ll soon realize that your situation hasn’t improved.

Once again your apartment is without power and water, which means that all you have to drink are the few cans of soda left in your pantry, and you have no way to cook your remaining food before it goes bad because the gas stove is dead.

The entire city has gone dark. You look out your window and there are no moving cars, no street lights, and every home looks as if it’s been abandoned, apart from the faint candle light coming from a few.

Normally you could see the city sky-line from your place, but now it’s completely black, as if the entire city has disappeared.

As the third night goes by, and then the fourth, the sound of gun shots starts to increase, getting closer, and closer.

You pray that the power will come back on… That surely the government is fixing the problem, and that the world will go back to normal at any moment.

But it won’t.

What most people don’t realize, is that our national electric grid is dependent upon massive machines called High Voltage Transformers.

There are only six companies in the US that make them. They weigh 100 to 300 tons each and take two years to build during NORMAL times.

Even if the rest of the world had been spared and was still fully-functional, it would take them at least 2-4 years to build enough transformers for the US and ship them overseas.

Once on American soil, it would take a military supply convoy months just to reach the installation locations spread across thousands of miles.

The reality of the situation is that the power will be out for YEARS, and most experts estimate that 90% of the US population will perish within the first 12 months of an EMP event.

But you don’t know that. You’re only five days in. And right now, all you know is that your family has just run out of food and water.

Which means you have two choices… Head out and try to take some from someone else, or watch your family starve to death.

If this sounds like an incredibly scary scenario, that’s because it is.

And we’re not talking about alien invasions, an asteroid, or something crazy here…

We’re just talking about the loss of electricity, which would result from a single nuclear detonation.

In a recent letter to investors, billionaire hedge-fund manager Paul Singer warned that an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, is "the most significant threat" to the U.S. and our allies in the world.

It’s a situation that is becoming increasingly likely by the week as tensions between Russia and the West continue to deteriorate.

In fact it’s so likely now, that the US government started preparing for this kind of EMP event last month.

They’re spending over $700,000,000 to reopen Chayenne Mountain. The secret military base which used to house NORAD and the US Space Command.


Well as you can read below… “Because it’s designed to survive an EMP blast.”

So billionaires who are infinitely smarter and more connected that you and I are worried about an EMP, and the government is suddenly spending almost $1 Billion to move it's bases underground for the exact same reason.

But that's not all...

This month the New York Federal Reserve unexpectedly announced that they were moving resources and staff 700 miles west to an office in Chicago to make sure "financial operations continued during a disaster..."

So if you’re paying attention, it’s easy to see that everyone who’s in a position to understand the real level of risk here, is actively preparing for it to take place.

Not a good sign.

So given that fact, what have YOU done what to prepare for a nuclear event?


I thought so.

Well It’s Time To Change That...

It’s time to make the smart, prudent decision to buy your family some REAL “life insurance” for this worst-case-scenario.

Hopefully you’ll never need it, but if you do, it will become the most valuable possession you own.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to interview a friend of mine here in Austin named Cade Courtley.


Cade is a certified badass. During his 9 years of active duty, he led highly classified, high-risk operations around the world as an Assistant Platoon Commander for SEAL Team Two; and later Platoon Commander for SEAL Team One.

He was even chosen by SPIKE TV to host their TV show, “Surviving Disaster.”

In other words, he’s about as good as it gets if you want to learn about survival and preparedness.

Unfortunately, Cade’s pulled back from sharing his knowledge and experiences in this area over the past few years, as he’s about to launch a startup in the coffee industry.

So I made a proposal…

If he’d be willing to spend a few hours sharing his knowledge with you guys, I’d share whatever I could with him about marketing.

Both of us thought it was a great idea, which means you guys get an incredibly rare opportunity to learn from one of the best in the world.

So we brought the film crew over to my place and created an extensive training video that will walk you through everything you need in order to keep your family safe during any kind of emergency situation.

I Call It, “Be Prepared”

Now the good news is that 80% of “being prepared” for the average person is simply a matter of going shopping.


If you have a few basic supplies on hand, you’ll be ahead of 95% of the population, so that’s where we’re going to start…

I asked Cade to come over to my place because I wanted to walk you through the supplies and tools that I’ve personally put together over the past few years.

Think of it as a giant show-and-tell session, with real world experiences and lessons-learned provided by a Navy Seal Commander....

We broke things down into three levels...

Level I: The 12 Essential Items
You Need To Get Immediately...

These are the 12 things you MUST have no matter what if you want to survive an emergency, and the good news is that you can acquire all of them quickly and easily, even if you’re on a budget.

Obviously water is at the top of the list, so we start the program by showing you the best water filtration system to buy, (the same one I use), and the product I use to store extra water in my home incase the public water system goes down.

When it comes to food, you’ve got a few options… Canned goods, freeze-dried, MRE’s, etc… I’m going to show you what kind of food I’ve purchased, and why…

We’re going to teach you Cade’s “Magic 3”... These are the only three foods ingredients your body needs to survive indefinitely.

And speaking of food and water, you and the rest of your family will need to use a toilet around six times each every 24 hours.

With four people in a house, that’s 20-30 trips to the bathroom per day. What are you going to do if you live in an apartment and the toilets don’t work any more because the public water system is down? What if this situation goes on for WEEKS?

Cade and I will show you a simple product that can help you solve that problem, especially if you live in an apartment.

As I mentioned earlier, the Department of Homeland Defense is currently running drills near Mexico for a possible nuclear detonation. Assuming you’re outside the blast radius and survive the detonation, you’re going to have to deal with the radioactive fallout.

There’s a particular supplement the military gives to all of it’s soldiers which is designed to help protect your body from radiation poisoning. I’ll show you what it is, and how to get it.

If an EMP takes place, all forms of communication will be down for good. All phones and the internet will be dead.

You’ll have no way to talk to your spouse, your kids, family, or friends, which means you need to create a family plan NOW, before that happens.

I’ll show you how to create a plan with your family, so everyone knows what to do, and where to go if an event like this should ever happen.

There are six more ESSENTIAL items that we’ll show you in our Level I training session, but for now, let’s jump to Level II...

LEVEL II: How To Create Your Emergency “Go-Bag”, And Protect Your Family From Violent Looters…

Once you have your essentials in place, you’re ready for Level II which designed to increase your safety and capabilities in a massive way.

First and foremost, we’re going to teach you how to protect your family and your home.

By day five, all of the people who didn’t bother to prepare like you and I are going to be hungry and extremely desperate. They will not hesitate to kill you in order to take what you have, so Cade and I are going to help you make sure that doesn’t happen.

First, we’ll start by showing you a phrase you can write on your door that will persuade criminals to walk away and choose someone else to victimize.

Should that method fail, we’re going to show you the single best non-lethal option that Cade and I both use to fight off home invaders.

This is something that you should have at your bedside RIGHT NOW. It’s incredibly inexpensive, and insanely effective at stopping bad guys.

And if that’s not enough to send them running from your home, we’re going to pull out my personal collection of firearms and walk you through the uses and benefits of each one…

The most common weapon for home defense is a shotgun. It turns out that Cade and I own the exact same one for two particular reasons, and there’s a very good chance you’ve never even seen or heard of it before.

But in addition to that shotgun, I’m also going to show you which pistol I use, and my prized, “end of the world” rifle that gives me an incredible advantage when it comes to staying safe.

Once we teach you what you need to know about weapons and self-defense, we’re going to make sure that you’re mobile.

If an EMP takes place, you could be stranded 10, 20, even 30 miles or more away from you home… Distances that could take you days to walk.

If a dirty bomb or nuclear weapon detonates near you, you’ll have to make sure that you can quickly move out of the path of the radioactive fallout, so we’ll show you how to quickly figure out which direction you need to go, but you’d better hurry…

You’ll only have about 20 minutes before it starts to reach the ground, which means you won’t have time to pack ANYTHING.

You’ll literally have to drop everything you’re doing and make a run for it depending on which way the wind is blowing.

This is why Cade and I keep “bug-out bags” in our cars. These simple backpacks can be the difference between life and death in an emergency.

My bag is designed to provide me with everything I need to walk up to 60 miles, which would take 3-4 days. Getting food, water, shelter, protection, medication, clothing, and the 29 other items I have into this tiny backpack is only possible because I’ve spent years using and refining this system.

I’m going to save you all of that time and trouble by giving you the exact list of every single item I have in my bags.

Just Head To Amazon, Start Clicking,
And Within A Few Days You’ll Have The
Exact Same Setup In Your Car That I Do...

Now one of the single most important things that you’re going to learn in this training video, is how to protect your electronic devices from an EMP, so you’ll still be able to use them.

There’s a good chance you already have a flashlight, radio, and extra batteries that you’ve socked away for an emergency.

Well in an EMP, none of those things are going to work any more…

The good news is that there is a way you can “shield” electronics like your laptop, phone, emergency radio, batteries, and flashlights.

Cade and I will show you how to do that.

And don’t forget to use this method to protect all of your memories. If you’re like me, 99% of my family pictures and videos are on my phone and computer which means that during an EMP, your entire family history would be lost forever.

I’ll show you what I’ve done to make sure that doesn’t happen, so you can do the same.

Within a matter of days or weeks, you’re going to use up the spare batteries you’ve had in your home, and eventually your candles.

At that point, you won’t even be able to see your hand inches in front of your face at night. This is clearly not a situation you want to find yourself in when you hear someone attempting to break into your home.

Fortunately there is a company that makes solar charging systems for any kind of electronics. Film crews and scientists use these devices to charge their laptops and cameras when they’re out in the jungle for weeks at a time.

I’ll show you which of their products to buy, and once you have them, you’ll have the ability to recharge your batteries and other electronic devices for years to come.

Once you have the ability to protect and then recharge your electronic devices, it’s time to give you a huge unfair advantage when it comes to your safety…

The ability to communicate with others in your group using handheld radios.

I spent WEEKS figuring out which radios would be the best to buy. I’ll show you which ones I ended up with, and why… 

Once you have Level II covered, it’s time to move on to Level III…

Level III: These Items Will Give You
The Ultimate Advantage…

There are only three items you’ll want to get in Level III, but they will give you the ultimate advantage.

One of them is the ability to see in the dark.

The Navy Seals have a core philosophy they live by which is, “we own the night.”

And that’s because whoever owns the night, wins.

As Cade put it, giving yourself the ability to see and move at night will put you on another planet compared to everyone else when it comes to your safety.

In Level III, I’ll show you the night vision devices I use, where to get them, and the other two “ultimate” items that will give you an unfair advantage during any emergency.

This is NOT an easy setup to create. The gear can get expensive, and you have to make sure everything is compatible.

Unfortunately I had to learn this the hard way, but I’ll make sure you avoid that mistake.

So Will You Ever Need To Use These Supplies?

I honestly don’t know. No one does.

You can’t predict the future, and that’s the entire point of insurance.

Personally, I think the odds are greater than 50% at this point.

If you're paying attention to what's happening around the world today, it's not a matter of "if", but "when."

At the end of the day, the United States has been at war for 222 out of the last 239 years.

It's becoming very clear that the world is tired of it, and now we’re the target.

In fact, just a few weeks ago an ISIS camp was found 8 miles away from the US/Mexico border.

I can’t tell you what’s going to happen or when.

All I can say is that the next few years will not be as peaceful as the last.

Whatever takes place will not announce itself. It will be completely unexpected, which means if you don’t prepare today, it will be too late for you. 

You need to take action, and if you want a giant shortcut, the “Be Prepared” training video we shot will provide you with a hands-on education of everything I talked about above and more.

But most importantly, I’ve also given you a list every single item that I personally have in my emergency preparations, and hyperlinked everything.

It’s taken me almost five years of trial and error and a ton of wasted money to get my gear to this point of refinement and effectiveness.

This “done-for-you” catalog will literally save you months of research, and thousands of dollars.

Include Cade’s real-world advice and experience as Navy Seal, and this training series will put you miles ahead of where you are today when it comes to your family’s safety.

Once you’ve followed our steps and acquired a few essential supplies, you won’t have to worry about what happens. You’ve done what you need to do, and now you can focus on building your business, and simply enjoying life.

As for the price, I could easily charge $297 to $397 for this which would be an extremely fair trade considering the years of money and time I’ve spent learning this stuff.

But I want as many of you as possible to have this information, so I’m going to give you guys full access to “Be Prepared” for just $97. That will cover the production costs, website costs, and the three weeks of my time it took to bring this program to life for you.

But There Is One Catch…

And as I mentioned earlier, I’m not interested in becoming a “prepping guru”, so this is the only chance you’ll ever have to get this training from me.

I’m bringing you in my home and showing you my gear, which makes this is extremely personal stuff.

So for those two reasons, I’m only going to make this program available until this Thursday at noon EST, and then I’m taking it down.

As always, I stand behind any product I produce, so I’m going to offer you a 100% money back guarantee for 30 days so you have absolutely nothing to risk.
If you don’t feel like you’ve learned an incredible amount of information that can help protect you and your family, I’ll give you a full refund. .

It’s that simple.

So click here to purchase my “Be Prepared” program with Navy Seal, Cade Courtley, while you still can...

P.S. Don’t be the person who read this… Who had this opportunity to take care of their family, and who came up with an excuse not to.

This is simply too important.
