    As the owner of an E-commerce business that sells Personal Security Products, like Stun Guns & Pepper Spray , I can tell you that more and more of my customers are buying these types of products not only to protect themselves from thugs, but  to protect themselves from animal attacks. 

A lot of my customers who go for walks or are into hiking love my best selling product The Zap Cane.  Just this morning I received an e-mail from our neighborhood watch group titled, “St. Louis Park Coyote Information”.   The e-mail contained attachments for solutions to coyote encounters, & preventing coyote conflicts. 

You can see for yourself if you follow this link  http://www.stlouispark.org/keeping-informed/coyotes-are-among-us.html  The story went on to say that there have been several coyote sightings and a small dog was recently killed.  Another community is offering Free coyote training classes.  Here is another link to a coyote attack in New Hampshire http://www.inquisitr.com/197435/coyote-attack-new-hampshire-teen-attacked-by-potentially-rabid-coyote/   

I happen to live in a community that is about 5 minutes from our downtown area, so the thought of these kind of wild animals coming so close to home is an eye opener. 

I had to kind of chuckle to myself as I was reading how to prevent a coyote from attacking.  The article suggests that I make myself large and loud and scream “Go away coyote!”  If only it was that simple!  However,  they do also suggest the use of Pepper Spray. Pepper Spray

 I like my odds better with a good can of pepper spray and a stun gun should I be so unfortunate to encounter a coyote or any wild animal for that matter. 

What do you think the best way to protect yourself is?

Welcome to the first blog of my new adventure, Security| Products| America.  After many nights (or years for that matter) of twiddling my thumbs, I finally decided to take a leap of faith and move forward with a plan to work with my dad.

Yep, that’s right, I decided to work with a family member!   For starters,  when I say my dad is extremely old-fashioned, check this out.

  • E-mail….He says, “why bother when I have a fax machine”.
  • Excel spreadsheet….”why bother when I have an endless supply of paper to write on”.
  • Contracts…He says, “why bother, when I shake a man’s hand and give him my word that is my contract”.

To most of you paranoid litigious people out there this may sound crazy.  However, what I have learned over the years about my dad’s so-called “crazy” philosophies made me wish we still lived in a society where a simple handshake and your word actually meant something.

I have talked to a handful of my dad’s friends over the last few weeks, (By the way, all of the people my dad has done business with over the years are all considered close friends) and what I learned about my dad was simply amazing.  The old guy from New York told me, “I have been working with your father for 25 years.  He is like a son to me. To this day, the only contract we have is a handshake”.  An associate from Arkansas told me, “heck, your daddy is like a father to me.  He’s a pain in the ass because he faxes me invoices and orders that are hand written on legal paper, but let me tell you something, they don’t make ’em like your daddy anymore.  There isn’t anybody out there that I trust more than your daddy”.

I guess being old fashion and true to your word really means something.  For me, what I continue to learn about my dad and how he has conducted business over the years sealed the deal.  Like my dad always says, “dive deep and come out dry”.  Wish me luck!

I would love to hear feedback on our new business website.  When you get a chance, check it out!  www.securityproductsamerica.com

PS: If you happen to do business with us, don’t worry! I’m in charge of the computer stuff and I promise not to fax you anything.
