Many industries and professions have trade journals devoted to news and information relevant to their particular industry or profession. But what about a trade magazine that serves as a “big picture” resource for preppers? Wouldn’t you like to know what’s going on in the world of preparedness at large?
On this week’s DestinySurvival Radio show I visit with Morgan Stewart who has put together just such a trade publication called Paratus Business News. It’s for you and me as well as businesses who are involved with and interested in preparedness.
It’s published online once or twice a week. And it’s free.
The Man Behind the Magazine
I met Morgan Stewart this past September at the Gateway Preparedness Expo in St. Charles, Missouri, outside of St. Louis. I recorded a brief conversation with him, which I included it in one of two podcasts I did about the Expo. He’s a knowledgeable, likeable guy, and I knew I wanted to invite him on DestinySurvival Radio so you could hear more from him.
At the time of this writing, Paratus Business News is only a few months old. But Morgan plans for his online publication to be around a good while. He isn’t some fly-by-night, fear mongering huxter.
Morgan will be the first to tell you he’s not an expert in survival tactics or gear. He is, however, very knowledgeable about business, the media/public relations and crisis planning.
Here’s his background info.
“The editor and publisher of Paratus Business News is Morgan Stewart, a marketing, promotions, public relations and media relations expert with more than 25 years experience. Morgan served at the government and Fortune 500 “Executive Suite” level including two Fortune 200 corporations and scores of businesses big and small.
“Morgan has worked with hundreds of reporters and media outlets nationwide. A key component of his experience with the media was working with trade publications covering the retail, consumer electronics, and the energy industries.
“Morgan holds a Bachelors degree from LSU in journalism. He was an associate editor of the Washington, D.C.-based political trade publication Campaigns & Elections Magazine. Morgan has been published in local newspapers and one of his articles was required reading at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government (for what it’s worth).
“He’s been prepping and studying the preparedness industry for nearly 10 years.”
The Magazine for You
If you’re like me, you like to read a little “inside baseball” about your hobbies and interests. For example, if you’re a gardener, you may like reading a magazine that includes profiles of movers and shakers in the garden seed industry.
Who’s raising and selling produce for restaurants or the farmer’s market?
What news and trends do you need to know about to be a successful gardener?
You get the idea.
Now consider Paratus Business News. It profiles leading individuals and companies who provide preparedness products and services. It lets you know who’s trustworthy and who’s not. That’s good for you and me as consumers.
Or if you’re in business to provide preparedness products and services, you can keep up with what other businesses and people are doing in the field.
Paratus Business News isn’t a “how to” publication. And there’s not an emphasis on product reviews.
It’s designed to look at the bigger picture of what’s going on in the world of preparedness and survival.
I could give you specifics, but I encourage you to hear how Morgan explains what the publication is about.
And More Interesting Stuff
Morgan and I also talked about…
- Sorting out the false or sensational from what’s true and trustworthy.
- Determining what the real threats are.
- Prospects for preparedness in the wake of the 2016 presidential election.
- How Morgan became involved with preparedness.
By the way, you’ll find several of the companies Morgan recommended during our conversation in the DestinySurvival Prep Mart. Take a look, if you haven’t lately.
