Blackout: What would you do if you lost electric power?

There are times when you receive an exceptionally crafted email. Unfortunately, those times do not come often enough. Here is one I read this morning from someone I admire, Michael Senoff. Michael provides hundreds of awesome business interviews on his website at no charge to the public. That is a brilliant marketing concept. Give and you will get.

This email has to do with the power shutdown in Southern California yesterday, 9.8.11. It was reported that electric power was lost all the way to Arizona. So, what would YOU do without electricity? Read on....

Who knew?

When would the power would come back on?

I was watching the movie "The Wrestler" on my battery powered laptop when my wife texted me . . .

"Go And Get a Generator."

I only had a 1/2 tank of gas.

I could remember how to siphon gas from my car's gas tank from my teenage years.

I got in my car and drove to the local Ace Hardware Store. 

They were closed.

Traffic was bad.

It would've taken me hours to get to the Home Depot on Genesee and Balboa.

Then, I remembered.

There were generators at Kraigan Auto Parts.

This one was right by my house.

I approached the store and saw two workers standing in side looking out.

I asked through the locked doors if they had any generators?

They said "yes".

And they unlocked and opened the door.

They reminded me it had to be cash.

They would only take one customer at a time.

Others waited outside.

I said . . 

"Not a problem, I've got cash."

They had two gas generators in stock.

I bought the less expensive one.


This was all kind of spooky.

About ten people were crowding outside the door of the Kraigen store. 

No doubt, they were looking for ways to power up.

I felt a bit nervous caring out the last generator.

I wanted to get it on my car and get the bleep out of there as fast as possible.

This black out was unprecedented.

And no one really new when the lights would come back on.

Despite what the media says.

I just don't trust the media any longer.

It was time for me to take my "urban survival" into my own hands.

The first problem was food.

I needed to get power to the fridge and freezer to keep the food we had from spoiling.

I had 4 hours.

I got the generator home, unpacked and running. 

Was able to power up both the fridge and the freezers.

We had enough gas to run the generator for two days.

And at 1:30 AM that night, the power was back.

Ok . . .

Not the real emergency I thought could have happened.

But what if power was down for a week, ten days, a month?

What if this was a terrorist attack?

Or a virus that destroyed our power grid?

What if ?

Are you prepared ?

Do you have 5,000 to 10,000 in cash on had when you need it in the event of an emergency?

Remember . . ATM machines and banks aren't open when the power is out?

You can't buy anything unless you have cash on hand.

Do you have propane to cook with?

Do you have a way to make electric power?

Do you have batteries to power LED flash lights?

Do you have extra fresh water?


Are you prepared when the light go out in your town?

Do you know how to make fast cash in the event of an emergency?

If not, go to this link.

It's my series on fast cash money making interviews.

Each interview will show you how to make cash money fast.

Southern California's nine hour black out was a wake up call for me. 

I was only partly prepared.

But not nearly enough. 

I was scrambling.

And I'll bet you're not prepared at all. 

Listen to my fast cash interviews.

Pass this e-mail to the family and loved ones you care about.

These recordings will at least give you a plan in the event you blackout.
