Resilient Plan Blog

The beginning...

Here is the story of how Resilient Plan B idea came to life. Like other businesses that I started before it was born out of my frustration of not being able to find the product that I was looking for. It's not like I knew exactly what I was looking for at the time, but everything I was able to find did not make a lot of sense to me.

Eventually, I decided to make a list of all the things that I wanted and put them in the order of importance. It took me quite a bit of time to study and research the issue to come up with a clear vision.

What I was looking for was a backup plan or so-called Plan B. It doesn’t mean I was thinking that the world is coming to an end, but changes are coming, and intelligent people should not ignore the obvious risks.

An economy built on fiat currency, decades of debt and overregulation, have completely compromised the financial system. Will the overdue reset come in the form of war or economic collapse? I do not know. What I do know is that the only thing that remains constant is change. 

People that are prepared and adjust to changes easily are always better off than those who can't see it coming. Nothing bad is attached to being alert and prepared. Your Plan B  must make sense no matter what happens or doesn't happen next. You should be better off with your back up plan than without it.

I don't want to get into explaining "why" people need to have a Plan B. Some of you who are reading this right now, already know your "why." There are already so many bloggers writing about problems of this world and explaining why you need a Plan B. I want to concentrate on solutions, not the problems.

I have read many Plan B ideas. And some of them do sound good but examining closely they reveal that they are not designed to withstand different kinds of circumstances. Others suggest to prepare bunkers for yourself and wait for the gloom and doom. Isn't it just smarter to remove yourself from the danger zone? In any case, it is much better to have some Plan B in place than nothing at all. 

For my Plan B, I wanted to have more resilience built into it. Also, I preferred to have something that makes financial sense.  I was not looking to add another expense to my monthly budget. 

I envisioned a property, located in an exciting and beautiful part of the world where I would go to relax and spend time with my friends and family. I wanted to enjoy high-quality organic food and ideally not become a farmer my self. 

It became apparent to me that I need to diversify internationally, to reduce my exposure to capital controls, banking, and currency crisis. A profitable self-sufficient farm and precious metals owned overseas is like an insurance policy that increases my freedom and protects my assets.

I traveled to many countries and looked into different concepts but found nothing that would fit my criteria. Eventually, I decided to create a company that provides these solutions to just about anyone with rational thinking and the ability and will to take action.

I will share more details on the essentials of a Resilient Plan B in my next blogs.
