Consulting Contact Information for James Wesley, Rawles:

Note: JWR provides his phone number and Skype contact information only to pre-paid consulting clients.

JWR Writes:

Before hiring me for consulting, please first search the SurvivalBlog archives and FAQs. I also strongly recommend that you read my book “How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It” . That book answers a lot of questions that I typically get from consulting clients. (And buying a $12 book beats paying for consulting.)

If you need my expertise about something that I haven’t previously published, my fee is $150 per hour, with a one hour minimum. You can send pre-payment via PayPal.

My e-mail and PayPal address is:

Be sure to include your e-mail address, phone number, and and the best time to schedule the call in your online payment instructions.

You can also send pre-payment for hours of consulting (in 30 minute increments) via U.S. Postal Service Money Orders, “Forever “ (Liberty Bell) postage stamps, or personal check to the address noted above.

For the past 10 years, I have consulted on a variety of survival-related topics including relocation, logistics, communications, firearms, privacy, communications security, food storage, caching, vehicles, field gear, signals intelligence, retreat architecture, and retreat security. Many of my clients are wealthy, and they appreciate what I can accomplish for them, with my network of subject matter experts. (We can help you locate, design, build, and fully stock a self-sufficient retreat.) And as a former intelligence officer, they appreciate my discretion.

On the advice of my attorney, I never have and WILL NOT EVER discuss any potentially criminal activities such as bomb making, poaching, poisons/toxins, fully automatic firearms conversions, active insurrection, or firearms suppressor (“silencer”) construction. If you raise any such topics then I will immediately terminate the consulting call–no exceptions.

Sorry, No Social Networking Presence

Please refrain from trying to get me to join Twitter, LinkedIn, or any of the other social networks. I get more than 150 e-mails per day, and that is bad enough, but getting an extra 20 proclaiming that “John Smith is following you on Twitter” and “I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn” are distracting. I consider these networks a security risk, so I don’t respond to any of these requests. Thanks!
