Overstock.com CEO is a Hardcore Prepper

Normally when people hear about us preppers and the things we go through to be ready for a cataclysmic event, they roll their eyes and disregard us or might humor us for a few moments before running back to their comfortably fragile existence. However, we have an ally that’ll be hard for people to ignore – Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne. Like he does with his business acumen,  Byrne’s prepping goes far above and beyond what most of us try to cover and is storing food and supplies in the Utah wilderness to support 1,500 people for three months.

 

The boss of online marketplace Overstock.com has revealed he has stashed away $10million in gold and silver in the Utah wilderness as part of a back-up plan to survive any collapse of the U.S. financial system.

CEO Patrick Byrne has also amassed three months' worth of food and other supplies for his staff so that the website, based in Salt Lake City, can keep functioning should the nation's major institutions collapse.

Byrne revealed his doomsday scheme this week, which he said would look after all of the company's 1,500 employees should the worst happen.

Action defines a person. You are labelled by these actions. Those who witness these actions label you. Those who are around to see most of your actions have a better definition of you as a person. You are the only one around to witness all of your actions. So how do you define yourself? What if you do nothing, how then would you be labelled? With this in mind, I guess you could say that I am many things to many people. I am a Boy Scout, Father, Husband, Soldier, Clerk, Survivalist, Entrepreneur, Dork, Dweeb, and many others, but what I like most is being a writer. I love to create things that people enjoy. In the end, I hope I am labeled as an all around good guy.
