It’s December 31 and everybody’s thoughts are scanning back over the previous year while looking forward to the impending New Year! Any which way you look at it, what a year 2012 has been!
For today’s article, I thought it appropriate to share our most popular articles from this past year. Which one has been your favorite?
Top 10 Essential Survival Articles From 2012
Essential Survival Milestones This Year
2012 has been a very eventful year for Essential Survival. Starting out at the beginning of the year, I was working solo on every aspect of the business — writing all articles and reports, processing and shipping all orders, and everything else you can think of! It was a major milestone for me to publish my ebook “Medical Preparedness for Adults” in February 2012 and then publish it as well as “101 Uses for 9 Essential Oils in a Disaster” as hard copy books in April in preparation for my booth at the Self-Reliance Expo in Orem, UT.
I heartily enjoyed my interview with Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast in April which skyrocketed my sales and gave me the opportunity to hire help (enter Rebecca Potter and my then-fiancee Rhetta Hovdal)! I also greatly enjoyed my interview on the Doom & Bloom radio show!
After taking a little time off in the summer to get married, I decided it was time to expand from just essential oils into the wide world of herbs. With the help of my friend and assistant Rebecca Potter, a Master Herbalist, we launched the Essential Survival Herb Kit and I have been enjoying homemade teas and tinctures with those 9 herbs ever since!
I also began the Essential Survival Preparedness Plus Membership Program this fall to provide you, my clients, with the opportunity for more individual mentoring on essential oils and medical preparedness, as well as allowing you to be taught by experts in different areas such as natural healing with cancer, autoimmune illness, and depression!
Just after Thanksgiving I published my ebook “Medical Preparedness for Pregnancy, Childbirth, & Infant Care” co-written with Rebecca Potter which I am proud to say is my best publication yet!
Because of you, my enthusiastic and faithful clients, we have enjoyed a 470% increase in sales in 2012 from 2011 that has allowed me to not only stay in business but also to employ 2 people. Our Essential Survival Facebook page has grown by almost 5x since October as it appears more people are taking their medical preparedness seriously! Maybe we are also doing a better job in getting the word out!
With such a fantastic 2012 under our belt, I can assure you that 2013 is going to outpace and outshine 2012 at LEAST as much as 2012 did to 2011! Stay tuned for some exciting new announcements of what is to come in 2013!
Last but certainly not least, what do you think we can do better in 2013? What would you like to hear about? Are there any preparedness blogs, podcasts, or companies who you would like to see interview us in the coming year? What can we do to better serve you in 2013?
Please let me know!
Thanks so much for your interest, your association, and your business!
