This is Self-Reliance 365: Self-Reliance Training Powered by Self-Reliant People

In this letter, you'll learn about the wisdom that helped our ancestors survive famines, wars, economic crises, diseases, droughts, and anything else life threw at them... a secret that will help you do the same for your loved ones even if modern civilization crumbles into the ground. I'm also going to share with you three old lessons that will ensure your children will be well fed through good times and bad. In fact, these three old teachings will improve your life immediately once you hear them. We know. We’re doing it, and over the past year we’ve shared our progress and ideas through Walden Labs with over one million people.

We Practice
What We Teach

My name is Dan West.

I’d like to take you behind the scenes at Walden Labs for a closer look and a deeper education. One that will pull back the curtain on the topics, methods, and step-by-step self-reliance strategies that don’t show up in public blog posts.

Over the past decade, I had to first figure things out for myself, making numerous mistakes and costly missteps along the way. That's until I stopped trying to reinvent the wheel and started relying on the wisdom and knowledge already made available to me by my ancestors.

I’ve sifted through centuries of the best self-reliance and survival strategies from a mountain of long forgotten books – all while making sure to filter the stuff that matters from the rest.

Pay close attention because what you read below can change your life forever for the good!

This is your opportunity to get hands-on self-reliance instructions for producing your own food, water, shelter, and energy - in abundance - in our Execution Plan Library. You'll learn the exact same steps we've taken, based on the knowledge of our self-reliant ancestors, and you avoid the uncertainty and outlandish time and expense... by getting it done for less than 22 cents a day.

As a supporting member you'll also get access to The Self-Reliance Calendar, custom Done-For-Your Self-Reliance Calculators, and Exclusive Self-Reliance Deals & Discounts.

Lesson No. 1:

Don't Take Anything for Granted!

I grew up without missing a thing. But my great-great grandfather wasn't so lucky. In 1867, when he was only 7 years old, he survived one of the most horrific famines Europe has seen, affecting northern Sweden and Finland. Spring was extremely cold and summer never came.

In the October 17, 1867 issue of London-newspaper The Times one could read about this "one place in Europe where, instead of summer sunshine and bountiful fields, instead of "the joy of harvest" the cry of children for bread, and the moans of men and women dying for want of it."

This was a place where "bread is not to be had for money, and people are living on roots and the bark of trees." Many families survived only because of the lichens they foraged in the forest and the nutritionally deficient bread they baked from fir bark ground into flour.

What you are about to hear is a real recollection that was written in a personal wall almanack during the crisis by Zakarias Wallmark:

May 22: At 11.30am it was 1 degree Celcius with the wind coming in from the northeast. The bushes are still standing straight as an arrow in the swamp and the snow depth is 1 1/2 cubit (old unit of measurement, where 1 cubit is the length from your elbow to the tip of your middle finger).

May 25: Cold wind and no thaw, still full snow cover, depth 1 1/4 cubit. On May 24 we went over the ice and no reed had thawed loose.

June 1: Went across the ice with the sled.

June 17: The swamp was free from ice and in the evening a strong storm came with lots of rain.

June 19: Released the cows. Snow in the forest, no leaves on the trees, no blueberry leaves, no grass in sight.

Zakarias Wallmark

Another even grimmer personal recollection comes from homesteader Erik Gideonsson:

The winter of 1867 is the worst year in living memory in Vilhelmina parish.

I was only 9 years old. We lived in Sjöland, an isolated place in the woods far from the nearest village.

It was a terribly cold and difficult winter. Lots of snow and almost impossible to catch a game bird.

Eventually, a terrible last resort was to slaughter our only cow. But the meat ran out, and spring was nowhere to be seen.

Then we took the hair off the cowhide, and cut the skin into small pieces and fried and ate them.

That did us good. But in early spring we were entirely out of food. Now all we had was a pair of old leather boots. But they were tarred so we couldn't fry them like we did with the cowhide.

Then we put the boots in water and boiled out most of the tar, and so we ate them. But we could not get rid of all the tarflavour. I still remember the burn in my throat after we had eaten the boots.

Now everything edible was gone. We were so emaciated that we could not walk. We lay in the beds along the walls. One day I remember that my dad shaved and said that, now we need to prepare to die. Strangely enough, we felt no hunger.

Erik Gideonsson

Luckily for Erik his family survived, and he lived to tell the tale, thanks to an uncle who brought them a couple of reindeer steaks in the very last minute. But many others were not as lucky. Entire families starved to death.

Things were so bad in 1867 that the folks in the Burträsk area couldn't plant the first crops until midsummer, towards the end of June, and conditions were similar in the rest of northern Sweden.

From the villages reports started coming in of suffering and starvation. The barns and larders were empty and prices of the little food that was left spiked - a barrel of rye ended up costing 50 crowns, which was the equivalent of a month's salary for a factory worker. "There is dire shortage of fodder and sheep and goats are dying everywhere." as Anders Olof Myrholm wrote in his journal.

The long winter made it impossible to get started with farming, but it also made it impossible for ships to reach the northern shores with emergency aid. The ships at that time were not powerful enough to breach even lighter ice.

The starving families were on their own.

Illustration of the starvation from a newspaper in 1867. A mother is dying, the son is eating a leather boot and the father is carving bark from a tree outside to make bark flour for baking.

But it got even worse. The already severe famine went from deadly to very deadly when it became clear that summer not only came late but also ended prematurely.

To Avaträsk, Lapland, the first frost came on July 18 - death as a white shroud over grain and potato fields. This first frost, grimly referred to as the "night of slit throats", reached my own birthplace a bright, early morning on September 3.

Panic spread among the farmers and in their panic they started to harvest grain that was still green and unripe. The night on September 24 frost killed all vegetation. In minus seven degrees Celcius.

No hope of summer or faith could help them now. The disaster, crop failure, could not be stopped. And it concerned everyone.

On top of this horrifying year the following year, 1868, was not much better. It was drier and resulted in drought and crop failure yet again. People starved, and animals too. Because of malnutrition and disease caused by this famine, death was a familiar part of many families.

People sought out new beginnings within the Nordic countries, but many families also chose to emigrate to North America, "the promised land" during these years. One of them was Erik Grundström, brother of my own great-great-grandfather, who was 5 years old when the famine struck. He emigrated and after a long life died in 1927 in Aitkin, Minnesota, leaving a wife and nine American children behind.

What's tragic about this crisis, the worst famine Europe has seen in centuries, is that while families starved in northern Sweden in 1867, that same year was also a record in swedish exports of grain. The large farms in the southern parts of the country shipped their grain, not to starving families in the north, but to England!

And in this we come back to lesson #1: Don't take anything for granted, including that someone will come to the rescue when things go bad. History has shown that in a crisis, it is everyone for himself!

Please allow me to take a wild guess without getting mad at me... you're probably sitting in front of your computer right now with few major worries, with a half-full fridge, maybe a decent job, and at least a small backyard that you can hold on to...and that's good!

But make no mistake taking this for granted!

History has shown us many times that it can all fly away in a split of a second.

The biggest misstep that you can take now is to think that this can never happen in America or to you!

All that our ancestors who formed America lived through would be in vain without lesson number 2:

Lesson No. 2:

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Call me old fashioned; I don't care...but I completely believe in what our ancestors stood for.

They all had a part in turning Western civilization and America into the most powerful civilization in the history of mankind.

Many died and suffered before a creative mind found an ingenious solution to - maybe - a century old problem. Believe it or not, our ancestors skills and deeds are all covered in blood. This is why these must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same for our children or our children's children.

But now, my friends, we are sitting on the edge of oblivion.

Our fathers and our grandfathers were probably the last generation to practice basic things like building a root cellar or making pemmican. Our ancestors laid the bricks and built the world's strongest foundation...that we are about to irreversibly forget!

And we're going to pay the ultimate price for this. Because if you have a big, strong house with a weak foundation, it doesn't matter if it looks nice on the outside-the next flood will sweep it away! And that is exactly what will happen to most Americans and Europeans in the coming crisis!

Here we are, human beings in the 21st century, several lifetimes and a world away from our grandparents and their ways. Have we become better at living? I think not. I watch as we become ever more expectant that the world owes us a living. Consumerism has reached epic proportions; people feel aggrieved if they don't own the latest gadget.

The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls.

We no longer know how to live without refrigerators, without cars, or without supermarkets.

What will you do tomorrow if you simply are unable to buy things?

I sometimes even think we're kidding ourselves with our Bug Out Bags and with our three-day food rations.

Wouldn't we be better off looking at what the pioneers took with them when they traveled from Independence, Missouri all the way to Oregon City?

Westward ways across the United States

That was a four- to six-month journey. If your life depended on this, what Bug Out Bag would you take with you? I know I would stick with whatever the pioneer had with him. He had to travel weeks on end without much help while taking cover from some native tribes at the same time. And this is just a small, tiny example!

Guys, I don't want to see our forefathers' knowledge disappear into the darkness of time...and if you care for your family, and what America stands for...then neither should you!

This is the third and most important lesson of all:

Lesson No. 3:

"It's always up to you."

I believe in God, the Tao, Allah, Brahman, universal intelligence, or whatever you want to call it. I also believe in the power of free will! I believe that you are the only one in charge of your destiny and that you are constantly making decisions that shape the rest of your life.

It's true that we all had different starts, depending on our families and upbringing, but most of us here in the United States had at least decent beginnings. We had water and food, we could go shopping from time to time, and we had a decent medical system compared with other countries.

We should be more thankful for that! And we should ensure that we have something put aside for darker times. If anything goes wrong with this country don't blame the government or the president. They don't truly care about you or your family. We are the only one to blame!

I don't know if you've noticed, but nothing just falls from the sky. GOD HELPS YOU, but He does not lay it on your table. You have to work hard and do things yourself! As long as you are aware of this, your destiny rests solely on you and your willpower. You can truly change things! And you can do a lot more than you think you can!

With this idea in mind a few years ago, I wanted to do something that hasn't been done before! Something that not only would help me survive a crisis without investing a fortune in stockpiles, but something that I could do around my house on a daily basis using only methods that were tested and proven by our forefathers for centuries.

I wanted to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our greatgrandparents!

When I was a child, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents, but when I got older there were months when we didn't meet-not because we couldn't stand each other but because I was always too busy working...a lame excuse and a thing that I deeply regret today.

My grandfather passed on many years ago and with him a magnificent amount of survival knowledge. He had been a lumberjack his whole life and spent years sleeping out in the wilderness. I don't know if you're in a similar situation, but think about your grandfather and how many things he did or knew...things that will vanish forever into the dark abyss of ignorance.

I could not learn from my grandfather, so I had to turn to other tomes of knowledge, old books and first hand testimonies, to find out how past generations survived and to learn the little secrets that helped them survive in spite of almost everyone else dying.

And because I deeply believed that I was the only one who could change something, my goal for the last couple of years changed from not just "learning" but "saving" our forefathers' ways.

This is one of the most important things that I've done in my life. I'm proud of it, but it took me many difficult years to get here!

First, there is no person that knows all our forefathers' forgotten secrets and heritage life skills. Let's just say that there are still a handful of people that still practice a lost skill transmitted from generation to generation even today...but not all the skills of course. I had to get in touch with a lot of different people.

Second, where do you find these people? They are no mainstream survival experts who knows all of these skills; they don't have a website or a TV show. Some of them even live in remote areas without Internet or TV cable, earning a living like the pioneers did!

Third, I wanted to do something unprecedented. You know, articles like "11 Skills Your Great-Grandparents Had That You Don't", and they start listing the skills: hunting, fishing, foraging, butchering, and so on.

Pffff...this kind of information will never help anyone. I needed something solid, exact, and to the point! Not just skills! I wanted to know things that they actually built, ate, and stored and EXACTLY how they did it.

And fourth, I'm not sitting on a gold mine! As much as I enjoyed traveling and learning these skills, I still needed to go to work.

But what I didn't realize when I started my quest is that you can't save these skills only by writing them down. If all these writings will be forgotten in a dusty drawer right next to my bed, it won't help anyone.

This knowledge will die together with me, and all my efforts to save our forefathers' ways would have been in vain.

This is because all my life I blindly believed in lesson 3...that "it is always up to me."

But I was wrong! In this case, it's only halfway there!

It's ALSO up to you!

Today is your chance to be part of saving our ancestors' lost ways.

I just hope that there are more people like you and me who deeply believe that the best way to survive the next major crisis is to look back at how people did things 150 years ago.

I wanted to make this information available to every family out there without having to spend years of their lives or thousands of dollars.

So I came up with this idea to edit all my manuscripts and to turn all this vanishing knowledge into one of the greatest online resources of this century:

Self-Reliance 365

Saving Our Forefathers' Heritage Life Skills

The first step to safeguarding your life and future does not cost you a cent, and it’s this: You need to accept that you are not crazy just because you see the serious consequences from letting a tiny political and financial elite control the rest of humanity.

If nearly every objective fundamental suggests that the current system of centralized power and production can not last, maybe it’s time to change how we do things.

How exactly?

By going from consumers to producers.

We are vulnerable because of our dependence as obedient consumers. So the way to reverse that, to be resilient and independent, is to become your own producer just like your forefathers.

As Bill Mollison goes on saying, "We should cease to look to power structures, hierarchical systems, or governments to help us, and devise ways to help ourselves."

It is out of this desire to help ourselves that Walden Labs was born. We’re solely in the business of devising ways to live free, and sharing them with you. We don’t want you to be dependent on any politician, banker or corporation.

This strategy is nothing new. People have been self-reliant producers for thousands of years, providing their own food, water, energy, shelter, security, etc.

And the good news is: now it’s easier than ever to be a producer.

Even on the brink of a complete reset in the financial system and our way of life...

We know how to solve every food, clean energy, and sensible shelter problem in every climate; we have already invented and tested every necessary technique and technical device, and have access to all the biological material that we could ever use.

The tragic reality is that very few sustainable systems are designed or applied by those who hold power, and the reason for this is obvious and simple: to let people arrange their own food, energy, and shelter is to lose economic and political control over them.

Self-Reliance 365 Is Not About Learning, It’s About Doing

What is needed to bring forth this world of self-reliant individuals and communities? Simple and direct insight into how people can improve their lives, no matter what is going on in the wider world.

Many of us today, including myself, don’t have any parents or grandparents that could pass on this knowledge for self-reliance. My grandparents died before I was mature enough to realize the immense value of their wisdom, and my parents never inherited those life skills in the first place because they had learned to be dependent on their government and corporations.

I had to learn it all on my own, through books, mentors, and costly trial and error. But you don’t have to go through the same process.

You can implement these same self-reliance systems while avoiding the thousands of hours I’ve spent figuring this stuff out and implementing these solutions into my own life.

Because now there’s Self-Reliance 365.

With Self-Reliance 365 you’ll get easy to follow, step-by-step checklists, or “Execution Plans” as I call them, that will help you practice these life skills and build your self-reliance and personal independence one step at a time.

They’re not your average checklist, but rather checklists on steroids.

The goal is simple: To allow someone who isn’t an expert to follow the steps in these plans and achieve similar results as your forefathers.

There’s a reason for why doctors and fighter pilots use checklists. If you follow them step by step they simply work. Not only once but again and again and again.

And right now inside the members area you’ll find many complete step-by-step Execution Plans waiting for you.

When You Join Self-Reliance 365 You'll Have These Three Execution Plans Waiting For You

The 6-Part Rural Property Purchase Checklist

So you've found a property that you're interested in buying. How do you know if it's a keeper or if it will give you trouble for the rest of your life? Here's a few steps to minimize your downside and maximize your upside, and quite possibly save you tens of thousands of dollars down the road.

  • The most important things to look for when buying a property for self-reliance, resilient homesteading, and permaculture
  • The deal breaker that should make you walk away from any property purchase, no matter how rosy it looks
  • What a property needs to give you food security, water security and energy security
  • And more...

Designing the Lean Homestead in 3 Steps

When you're done with this Execution Plan, you'll have a clear picture of how the five permaculture zones fit in with your property and how they affect the energy efficiency on site, and more importantly you'll know how to spot and reduce the major types of waste in homesteading and self-reliance.

  • How to design your property for maximum efficiency using the five permaculture zones
  • The seven major types of waste on a homestead
  • The five areas of homestead logistics
  • The three steps to optimizing day-to-day activities in your home
  • And more

Build The Essential Crisis Preparedness Kit

  • The 4 emergency preparedness essentials. Cover these four categories and you greatly increase your chances of survival regardless of the crisis situation.
  • What types of food you should store and not store in your emergency kit
  • How to use the "rule of 3s" to plan your emergency preparedness the right way (this will save you a lot of planning and money, and might even save your life)
  • The three methods to purify water, and our best product recommendations for each water purification method
  • How to put together a kit that will aid you regardless of which crisis you run into, whether it's a long term blackout, an earthquake, a tornado, a large scale terrorist attack, or simply losing your job.
  • And more

How To Figure Out The Optimal Size For Your Off-Grid Solar PV System (in 5 Steps)

If photovoltaics had existed 200 years ago, your forefathers would probably have loved it. Photovoltaics is a most elegant energy source. Light shines on a crystal and produces electricity. Its as simple as that. There are no moving parts. The fuel source (sunlight) is free, abundant and widely distributed, available to every country and person in the world.

  • We cover the five "things" you need to determine the size of your solar PV system (both in terms of solar array and battery storage)
  • How to correctly size your PV array so that you don't pay for too much power, or too little
  • Get access to "The Ultimate System Sizing Calculator"
  • And more...

The 6 Step Guide To Select Components For Your Off-Grid Solar System

  • We'll cover step by step all the components you need to build your own off-grid solar PV system
  • With scientific formulas and our easy-to-use calculators we'll show you exactly how many solar panels and batteries you need, even the required thickness of the cables
  • What you can expect to pay for each component, and which manufacturers we trust
  • And more...

Blackouts: The 3-Part Preparedness Plan That Will Keep You Safe In The Dark

  • What to do before, during and after a blackout to stay safe and on top of the game
  • How to build the ultimate blackout kit (plus the 27 first aid kit essentials you should have)
  • The biggest killer during power outages, and how to avoid becoming a victim of it
  • And more...

And these are just the beginning.

To give you an idea of what to expect, here are some examples of upcoming Execution Plans that we can’t wait to share with members:

  • 22-point “Home Energy Optimization Checklist”
  • Building the Perfect 72 Hour Survival Bag in 9 Steps
  • 7-Step Guide to Plant a Forest Garden (So That You Can Plant Once And Harvest Food For The Rest Of Your Life!)
  • 8 Steps to Optimize Your Home Water Usage
  • 12 Steps To Turn Your Home Into a Burglar-Proof Fortress
  • 7 Steps To Grow Your Own Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms

As a Self-Reliance 365 member you get to see everything…the good, the bad and the ugly.

And when we figure out something that works, we systemize and document the life skill into an “Execution Plan” (i.e. a checklist or “cheat sheet) that all our members can use.

The sole goal of Self-Reliance 365 is to help you accomplish real things in real life, to put the same skills to use that your forefathers used to survive and thrive, not become yet another ebook or course gathering dust on your harddrive.

That’s why the Executions Plans you’ll find in the members area don’t contain page after page of theory. Almost none in fact. If you want theory, go read a free blog post at

But if you want results, starting today, then give Self-Reliance 365 a try.

Bonus #1: The Self-Reliance Calendar

True self-reliance is only possible when it’s done in balance with nature, and that means being in tune with the seasons.

Homesteaders of old were intricately connected with nature and the moon cycles and knew what to do when, from planting to cutting firewood and bringing in the harvest. Much of that knowledge has been forgotten, but the knowledge is still out there.

We’re bringing this knowledge back to life in the Self-Reliance Calendar, only available to members of Self-Reliance 365. We launched it back in November 2015, and at the start of each month you'll get a report covering the things that were done in the days of old.

For example, you'll learn about the "to-do" items that your great-great grandparents might have carried out every month to survive and thrive, things they did:
  • in the forest
  • on the field
  • in the kitchen garden
  • in the orchard
  • in the home
  • and more

Bonus #2: Exclusive Self-Reliance Calculators

In the Calculators section of Self-Reliance 365 you'll find custom Done-For-You calculators that we've developed to make your self-reliant life easier, all based on accurate, scientific formulas.

Whether you want to figure out the perfect size for a solar PV system, how many batteries you need in the battery bank, or how thick wires your PV system requires, we've got calculators for all of those, and more.


One of many calculators you'll find in the members area. Having the right wire thickness for your solar PV system is critical. This calculator helps you get it right.

In our Water Calculators section you'll also find calculators that will help you figure out how much rainwater (in gallons or liters) you can collect annually from a certain catchment area.

No more calculating long and complex mathematic formulas by hand, our calculators does the heavy lifting for you automatically. All calculators that you'll find in the Execution Plans will also be gathered here in one place.

Bonus #3: Self-Reliance Deals & Discounts

As a member of Self-Reliance 365 you'll have someone who is constantly hunting down and negotiating exclusive deals and discounts for you on the best products in self-reliance.

Whenever we see something we like, be it a company selling seeds, preparedness supplies, solar panels, a particular product or even an online course, you can count on us reaching out to them to try and get you a good deal.

For example, right now in the members are you'll find discounts such as:


  • 10% discount on solar panels and solar generators
  • 10% discount on high quality dehydrated foods from the oldest, continually operating and family owned food storage company in the US
  • 15% discount on a portable multi-fuel emergency preparedness stove
  • 20% discount on self-reliance and survival books
  • 7% discount on the popular Berkey Water Filtration Systems from a top US Authorized Dealer
  • And more!

These deals and discounts will make your Self-Reliance 365 membership quickly pay for itself even if you take advantage of just a few of the discounts - and many of these products you'll probably buy anyway!

Only Self-Reliance 365 members get access to these discounts. We prefer to keep it that way, but we won’t get angry if you share a discount with a friend (although we’d love it if you put in a good word for us when you do).

Here's what life will be like AFTER you've built a Self-Reliant Life:

Just imagine…

If food prices triple, or even worse the supermarket shelves are emptied after a serious crisis strike…

You will be OK, because you’ll have a productive and abundant garden producing a wide variety of nutritious foods and medicinal plants.

If (or should I say when) the deteriorating power grid reaches a breaking point and people have to live with rolling blackouts, or at the least serious spikes in their energy bill...

You will be OK, since you’ll generate your own power and heat from the sun, the wind, maybe even the Earth’s own heat that’s leaking up from its molten core.

Even if another financial shock hits the world and banks start to collapse…

You will be OK, because you'll have savings invested in real physical assets that are inflation-proof and confiscation-proof, such as a productive garden.

You can do some of these things at very little cost, and the best thing with self-reliance is that every solution you’ll find in Self-Reliance 365 is one that makes sense no matter what might happen next.

If all hell breaks loose and the global economy tanks, you’ll be very glad you planted that edible garden and installed that solar PV system.

But if 5 years from now none of this happens and you’ve got all of this delicious and healthy food and cheaper, more resilient energy you’re definitely no worse off and you can call me a crazy son of a bitch!

So you get it all…

The Execution Plan Library (our checklists, reports, and “cheat sheets…that we're building out to include literally every system and life skill we use to run our resilient homesteads…) where you’ll find the first couple of Execution Plans waiting for you:

What Does Self-Reliance 365 Cost?

You’d think that something that will help you produce your own nutritious food, clean water, and resilient energy would cost a lot, considering how much you spend on all of these things every year.

Just take food for example. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a family of four can get away with spending $568 per month on food, but only if they follow the bare minimum “thrifty” food plan. A more humane food plan will set you back $893.1 per month, or $10,717.20 per year.

And when it comes to energy, the average U.S. household spends over $110 per month on electricity, or $1,320+ per year (U.S. Department of Energy).

Last but not least, just think about the thousands of dollars that you pay in taxes to the government each year, where every tax dollar allows them to further increase their control over you.

You spend thousands to tens of thousands of dollars on food, energy, water, rent / mortgage, and taxes every year, all of which keep you highly dependent on the system that is crumbling before our eyes.

But let me ask you, how much do you spend every year on systems that increase your personal freedom with each passing year?

Regardless of your answer, you don’t have to pay thousands of dollars on Self-Reliance 365. In fact I wouldn’t want you to, because I want as many people as possible to join me in this movement.

I know these are hard times, and with increasingly desperate governments trying to squeeze more and more tax dollars out of each and every citizen to avoid bankruptcy, it’s bound to get even worse.

With that in mind...

You Get It ALL – For A Full Year – For Less Than 22 Cents a Day

That’s right…

When you join Self-Reliance 365 today you pay only $6.6 per month (billed annually at $79) and you lock in this rate for as long as you stay a member, even when inflation will force us to raise the price in the future.

But I can only guarantee this price when you join now, because I want to reward action takers and we’re planning to add new Execution Plans fast (and we will raise the price as more Execution Plans and Discounts are added to reflect the increased value).

You don’t need to decide now.

Remember, this order is simply an opportunity for Self-Reliance 365 to sell itself to you. There is no sale - no obligation to keep it - until you have tried it out in your own home for 60 days and are satisfied. Just let us give you access to these first three Execution Plans for your examination. If you're not satisfied, let us know and you will get a prompt and full refund.

But remember, too, that now is the time. After the proverbial shit hits the fan, anyone can say what the outcome has been, and what exactly triggered the system failure, but hindsight of this kind is seldom very valuable.

It is the person with foresight who can plan ahead and hedge the systems now that will thrive in the future when others struggle to merely get by.

So start your risk-free evaluation period now, and become the master of your own fate.

Which Door Do You Choose?

Door #1: You forget you ever read this letter and keep trusting the old system, and just hope that the politicians and bankers that run your country manage to kick the can down the road for the remainder of your life. If you’ve seen the Matrix (a favorite movie here at Walden Labs HQ), this is the equivalent of choosing the blue pill. The story ends, you wake up tomorrow and believe whatever you want to believe.

Door #2: You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland and we’ll show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. You take real practical action and build your self-reliance by doing things that make sense no matter what happens, and no matter what crazy shenanigans your politicians come up with.

Remember, all I’m offering are practical and resilient solutions for self-reliance and personal liberty. The door is wide open, but you have to walk through it yourself.

Click the Add to Cart button now. Remember you’re protected 100% by our money back guarantee.  Test drive Self-Reliance 365 for 60 days free of obligations.

You’ll get The Execution Plan Library (all our checklists, reports and “cheat sheets” …that will cover literally every system and heritage life skill we use for self-reliance…), The Self-Reliance Calendar, Custom Calculators, exclusive Self-Reliance Deals & Discounts...

Plus all future Execution Plans and bonus material and discounts, for only $79 today.

P.S. You know things are screwed up. Pointing that out really isn’t necessary. The old system of centralized power and production is failing, so I hope you join me and learn how to build your own, better, food-, water- and energy-producing systems. Systems that help you live the good life, no matter what happens. Lock in your member rate of only $79 today. Click here now.
