Prepper’s Financial Guide, Author Jim Cobb
Jim Cobb is the author of PREPPER’S FINANCIAL GUIDE, published in late 2014. This is the 6th book in his repertory of writings, and they are focused on some of the basic aspects of preparedness with details only someone who has “been there and done that” would know.
Doctor Prepper discusses many of the facets of the life-saving skills, supplies, tactics and plans with the author of Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness, and other books illustrated on this page.
Jim is the owner and lead trainer for disasterprepconsultants.com. He is also the co-owner of the blogsite SurvivalWeekly.com. You’ll find plenty of non-fiction and fictional books and authors reviewed on his site. His personal experiences make it an easy-to-use for readers.
Jim has been an active Prepper/survivalist for more than 30 years. In his real life, Jim is a Licensed Private Investigator and preparedness consultant for families and businesses. He’s raising 3 sons, and his wife is fully on board with their preparedness lifestyle. Jim has an engaging and conversational way of talking about the actions required for getting out of debt and staying debt-free with some easy and simple ideas about saving money and how to use it wisely.
I think you’ll like this show—there’s something for everyone who’s trying to become prepared in today’s economy.
One of Jim’s favorite quotes is: “Survival is not the exclusive right of any particular political organization or religious affiliation. The right to live—and to defend and protect your loved ones—is the most fundamental of all rights.” (from Scott B. Williams, Author)
James Talmage Stevens, Author
James Talmage Stevens (aka Doctor Prepper™) began his career in the preparedness industry from the days of his youth. His family lived with his Grandparents immediately following the end of WWII. He learned the basics on the Pace farm in rural Guilford County (NC). Farm chores and gardening were standard fare––plowing the back 40 behind a stubborn mule was substandard! In 1974, upon finishing graduate school with 4 young children and no prospects for a job due to economic conditions during a national economic slump, James reverted to his past experiences on the farm and chronicled in his notebook, along with some hand-me-down recipes from his mother and grandmother. Noting there were no viable books that dealt with all the basics, i.e.: a broad range of food products, he began to utilize his analytical skills, organizing handwritten notes, recipes, and food lore into one volume of information. He spent his spare time while job-hunting, and Making the Best of Basics was created. Before going to press, the subtitle Family Preparedness Handbook was added to distinguish Basics… from the emergency preparedness genre of the existing Civil Defense and governmental agency information.
