It's hard to believe that the song '1999' was popular 20 years ago as we turned the century milestone. How time does fly! Here we are in 2019 and the New Year is a good time to look back and ponder our successes, challenges, gained knowledge and new directions and bring our experience forward. As a contractor for 28 years, my goal was to protect people's investments. Damsel in Defense came into my life almost 5 years ago and I reflect on the fact that I transitioned from p
The holidays, shopping, celebrating and traveling are here as we visit family and friends. Some Damsel Tools cannot be taken on planes or other types of public transportation - unless they are in your luggage. There are also some state regulations for Pepper Sprays and Stun Guns.

Vacation time is here whether you are staying at home, planning a road trip or camping, or going up up and away!
As you make your plans, discuss Situational Awareness with your family. Remember, criminals hide in plain sight. Police response is normally 7-11 minutes if you are home. If you are away, it can take longer. Consider having a non-lethal safety tool for that 'just in case' moment.

There is a back story that is an important piece of my commitment to Damsel in Defense. It was introduced to me four years a
The most dangerous situations can be the ones we don’t prepare for. As a Realtor, does your daily plan also include your safety? We have alarms on our homes, cars and businesses, but what about your physical safety? It is important to plan for that “what if" situation and have a "just in case” safety tool. Your lives and the lives of those you love are more important than anything else. Many of us may feel that carrying our cell phones for emergencies is sufficient protectio
As is my habit, when I go to the gas station, I lock my van and take my keys. This morning there was a car parked at the next row of pumps, facing the opposite direction from me, his driver's door open as he stood there and watched me, talking on his cell phone. He wasn't speaking English so I had no idea if he was talking about me. It was really creepy and I continued watching him in my normal vigilant manner. I had my Pepper Spray, set to 'on', and a Kubotan on my key r
One of the most exciting times as a parent is watching our graduates enter the next phase of their lives – going to college – but moving to a new community, away from home, it’s tragically easy for them to adopt a false sense of security in the campus bubble, surrounded by friends and peers. Human nature is to trust, but it’s critically important to remember that we don’t always know who we can trust, so preparation is essential – just in case a dangerous situation should ar
