In this episode, we’re joined by James Price. We sit down to discuss the three things every prepper should know, but probably hasn’t even thought of.
You see there’s a lesson James taught us a while back: If the situation turns to violence you’ve lost.
So who do you keep a situation from turning to violence and flip adversaries to your side?
And if a situation spirals out of our control into violence, how do we protect our kids and loved ones like pro-executive protection contractor?
