Episode 001: Security is a Mindset

In the very first episode of The Secure Dad Podcast, I explain what The Secure Dad is, how you need to plan to leave a store in a hurry WITHOUT using an emergency exit, why you should carry a pocket knife and the main topic: Security is a Mindset.

How we think can make us safer. What we choose to put a priority on personal and family protection, we’ll find ourselves naturally making safer decisions. Don’t live in a bubble where you think violence can’t find you because it never has before. Thinking with a secure mindset is not a life of paranoia, it’s a life of empowerment.
