About Mike "The Prepper Nerd"

Mike has a background in project management and analytics, so when he started his preparedness journey in Jan 2020 (just ahead of the masses and panic), he quickly realized that he needed to get organized and had the skills to build something great. After creating a solution for himself, he shared what he had done with a couple YouTube influencers in the community, who encouraged him that this system could really help a lot of people. And so, the Ultimate Prep System was born!

“I want to make sure that people with a heart for preparedness can meet their prep goals as quickly and as stress-free as possible.”

Getting your shopping list ready

The shopping list feature is a convenient and easy to use way to make sure you remember all your planned prep purchases.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it work for me if I'm a non-techie?

Many of the hundreds of people that I’ve helped with The Ultimate Prep System would claim to be “non-techies”. You can see some of their feedback in the testimonials above.

If, for any reason, the video walk-throughs and my personal email support don’t help you get started, I am including a 1 on 1 Zoom call exclusive with this offer.

Will it work on MY device?

The Ultimate Prep System works on any modern browser and has a complementary app available. So, you’re able to use it on your PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device.

What happens if the SHTF and/or there is no Internet??

The Ultimate Prep System is the best tool for the process of prepping. SHTF is a different scenario, and if internet is down, then there's a good likelihood electricity is down.

The Ultimate Prep System gives you the ability to set up automated exports / backups of your food/supply inventories, which can be emailed to you as often as you like. I print mine out every other week so I have a hard copy in case of SHTF, and I'll have all my info at my fingertips.

Why do you charge an annual subscription fee?

The annual subscription fee contributes toward covering the cost of the significant annual fee that I have to pay to Smartsheet to make this system available to you.

Also, I include support and upgrades, which all require time on an ongoing basis to provide to you.

What happens once I purchase?

After completing your purchase, you’ll be sent an email with a link to a simple form where you’ll fill in your preferences.

These are things like:
– Do you want to track best by dates?
– What categories do you want to use for your food?
– Do you want to track what room your prep items are in?
– Etc …

Once you submit your preferences, I get you all set up with your Ultimate Prep System. This can take 1-2 days depending on how many orders are in the queue, but sometimes it can take as little as an hour.

Once I have set you up, you’ll receive an email with a link to your Dashboard, which contains all the other links you’ll need, including links to your inventory sheets, a getting started playlist on YouTube, a link to provide feedback, etc.

And now you’re off and running! You have access to me for questions and support any day of the week and I usually respond within 24 hours, sometimes even right away.

Can I share my Ultimate Prep System with family?

You can share with whoever you like, and as many people as you like. You can provide them with read-only access, as well as edit access with or without sharing permission.

How can I be confident that my information is private and secure?

There are a few reasons that you can be confident in the privacy and security of the Ultimate Prep System.

1. It’s built on a platform (Smartsheet) that’s used by large companies to store protected health information (PHI), which has extremely large regulatory consequences for any type of data breach.

2. Smartsheet is a publicly traded company, and uses industry standards for security and privacy.

3. Smartsheet is considered a “no look platform”, meaning that they can’t view data contained in its platform without explicit consent from the account owner (which I would never give if it would expose anyone’s data, as covered in my privacy policy).

What best practices can ensure that my information is private?

There are a few best practices that can help you ensure privacy.

1) Use a separate, non-self-identifying email address created just for subscribing to and accessing the Ultimate Prep System.

2) Use a pseudonym in all interactions with me.

3) Arrange payment in such a way as to keep your identity and physical location secret. Based on current options, this would mean using a credit card (which is processed by Stripe who does not share your name with me), or use PayPal and ensure your account name is not your real name (because PayPal shares your account name with sellers you buy from with PayPal).

4) Set privacy controls on your computer so that your physical location cannot be discovered (or at least cannot be easily discovered) when you go online. For example, set up a VPN and only access the Ultimate Prep System through it.

5) Use “code words”, that only you and your family would know, to describe any sensitive prepping items. For example, you could list your high capacity magazines as Halloween decorations, or something equally innocuous.

6) List preps in an amount that is a fraction, for example 1/4th, of the actual amount you have. That is, if you actually have 4 buckets of rice in storage, you could list just 1 bucket, knowing that when you print out a copy of your inventory list, you would automatically multiply all the amounts shown on that list by 4.

What if I already have an inventory? Is it easy to migrate that data into this system?

YES! The system’s inventory sheets are very similar to MS Excel, and you can copy-paste information into cells as needed.

If your inventory is far different in structure, or you just need some help, I can offer you a data migration service for a fair price.

What happens if I have to unsubscribe at some point? Do I lose my info?

Absolutely not! Your data is 100% yours. You are able to export any data from your system to PDF or Excel or comma separated values (CSV) file at any time. You can even set up automatic backups (exports) of your inventory to be sent to you via email on a recurring basis.
