What’s Your Survival Score?

Don’t beat yourself up if you failed miserably. I scored 7/13 ( 54%) – and I was even being generous with my answers 😉

Only you know what’s important to help prepare your family, but I encourage you to figure out what that is and start doing something about it!

Because most likely – no one else is going to be doing it for you!
