Now I admit, I'm not the smartest guy in the world when it comes to things like building a gazillion-dollar business or buying up giant skyscrapers so I can rub elbows with the “Donald Trumps” and “Bill Gates” of the world.
I'm not a “1%-er” like those guys.
But I figure they must have done SOMETHING right to get to that level of success, don't you agree?
And if you and I knew exactly what they know… and did exactly what they did… then of course it makes sense that we could ALSO achieve the same results, right?
Well guess what muchacho…
Society's “mega-rich” are all talking behind the scenes about an upcoming “collapse”…
…and they're spending big duckies on making sure they and their families will be fully protected while the REST of us are left to feed on each other in a desperate war over basic necessities to say alive!
Don't believe it?
Check Out How The “1%” Are Prepping For COLLAPSE (And How You Can Steal Their Best Tactics)
You've heard all the talk about recession coming in the news lately, right?
Well, not too long ago, Jonathon Johnson, the Board Chairman of Overstock.com (a company with over $1.5 billion in annual revenue and 1,500 employees), gave a talk at a precious metals conference about the company's insights into where the economy is going and what they're doing about it.
(Spoiler Alert: The outlook is NOT good!)
Here are some highlights from his speech and what you can do to follow their lead on preparing for what lies ahead…
“We are not big fans of Wall Street and we don't trust them. We foresaw the  financial crisis. We don't trust the banks still and we foresee that with QE3, and QE4 and QE ‘N' that at some point there is going to be ANOTHER significant financial crisis.
We expect that when there is a financial crisis there will be a banking holiday. I don't know if it will be 2 days, or 2 weeks, or 2 months.”
What That Means For You:
A “banking holiday” is a Presidential Order (passed in 1933) used to completely shut down banks — without warning — to avoid everyone panicking, pulling their money out, and causing a complete financial apocalypse.
The entire banking world suddenly goes “black” and you won't be able to view your balance… withdraw or deposit money… write checks… or even access your bank's web page.
For how long?
Like Overstock Chairman said, it could be “2 days, or 2 weeks, or 2 MONTHS“!
So what can you do?
Immediately after a collapse and a federal “banking blackout”, cash is still going to be king (for a little while).
But if you don't have it in your wallet, you're NOT going to be able to go out and get it from your bank or ATM.
That's why the super-wealthy always keep a stash of cold, hard cashola at home (in a safe) for emergencies.
If you have a fire-proof gun safe, that will work too (NOT a bank safe deposit box!)… and you should consider moving some of your savings into primarily $1 and $5 bills (stores won't be able to make change as easily) rather than sitting in a no-interest checking account that you may never get access to once the SHTF.
Just stack those duckies up right next to your bricks of 9mm and get used to paying for groceries and other expenses with cash now as good practice.
But a word of warning here…
Don't go crazy building “fat stacks” in your gun safe or tucked away in your freezer, because there's something even more important (and more valuable) that this CEO said his company was planning for.
Here's the continuation of the Overstock Chairman's speech…
“We also happen to have 3 months of food supply for every employee [+ 1 additional family member] to live on during the crisis.”
First of all, how cool is it that a corporation — who sees the writing on the wall that our dollar is about to come crashing down — is preparing even to FEED their 1,500 employees and their families for at least 3 months?
Crazy, right? (And pretty damn smart!)
Overstock understands that when the economy collapses, food resupply lines will be severed and most people will be out of food within a matter of a few short days — as little as 3.
Grocery stores that haven't been completely looted or sold out will skyrocket their prices and be forced to work on a “cash-only” basis.
In other words, the “mega-rich” aren't just buying up yachts and real-estate.
They're also investing in “survival food” for themselves and their employees.
What That Means For You:
The very best investment you can make right now is in long-term survival food — which is even more valuable than cash (or silver and gold coins) in an economic crisis.
Not only will you be able to feed yourself and your family while others are starving, but it will be the most valuable barter tool you'll be able to use when no one else around you has a single dollar to their name.
But you know what ELSE the gazillionaires are doing?
They're building “mega bunkers”!
In fact, it's been reported that Bill Gates himself has an underground survival bunker in ALL of his homes.
He's not the only one.
In fact, CNN recently reported that “luxury bunkers” are BIG BUSINESS.
These things have everything from swimming pools to nuclear blast doors.
They're intended to let the richest among us ride out the collapse that they all know could be on the way — even if it's just for a few days or weeks.
Bunker-building companies are reporting INSANE sales increases from the wealthy.
And they wouldn't be spending their money on nuclear-hardened homes instead of Ferraris and, I don't know, gold-plated toilets, if they weren't really worried about what's coming!
While your desperate neighbors take to the streets, looting and attacking each other for a few batteries and bottles of water…
…the “elites” will be sipping champagne, safe behind their impenetrable designer forts!
(At least, that's what they THINK will happen.)
What That Means For You:
You don't have to be one of the 1% “mega-rich” to prepare.
In fact, you don't have to spend much money at ALL.
If you want to jump in on it, I'm giving a FREE workshop this week where I'll show you the EXACT steps I've taken to prepare myself and my family for the same threats the wealthy know are headed our way…
…but I'll show you how to do it even if you're on a shoestring budget!
I'll also explain to you — in just 4 simple steps that anyone can do — how to be even MORE prepared for ANY disaster, crisis, or collapse than these bunker-dwelling billionaires.
That's because, while they're blowing their money on fancy survival bunkers that aren't necessary to get through a disaster, I'll tell you about the specific “phases” of a crisis that I've seen as a soldier — phases that even the wealthiest “doomsday preppers” aren't prepared for.
These “5 phases of survival” that I talk about in-depth in my online “survival masterclass” are things that MOST people, rich OR poor, are doing all wrong!
(There are only 200 seats available for the weekly free webinar, so to see it now, you might want to register — because I go in-depth into how to prepare for ALL the 5 survival phases at the SAME time in one simple step.
I also explain how to interpret the “no B.S. warning signs” that a collapse is coming — the signs that even some of the prepared “1 percent” don't know to look out for.)
Look, I'm really not interested in the “rich or poor” thing.
I'm interested in encouraging you and your family to start making a plan NOW, no matter how much money you do or don't have.
If you'd like some help getting that plan started, then join me for my free “survival master class” — and learn how to start preparing WITHOUT spending a fortune.
Hope to see you in the training!
