Predators’ Work Hours

Purpose of This Book

“Simply put, we want you to live a healthy and prosperous life and die of old age.”

—Jane & Gene

Knowledge is power. Staying Alive – “A Woman’s Essential Guide to Living Safely” could save your life or that of someone you love.

Staying Alive – A Woman’s Essential Guide to Living Safely is a jam-packed, vital, no-nonsense, detailed daily handbook dedicated to helping women live safely. We arm you with knowledge to defend yourself against predators day and night.

Our purpose is to inform and inspire women to do more to protect themselves. Our goal is to enlighten all of us to take control of every aspect of our lives.

We don’t just point out the pitfalls, we provide tools and methods that will help you protect yourself and those you love.

You’ve seen the headlines, watched TV news: a woman violently attacked, or worse, while jogging, walking in a parking garage, leaving a mall, while on vacation or while sleeping in her own bed at home. You shook your head in disgust, then…

You think: “Such things only happen to ‘others.’ Those victims likely thought the same thing before becoming the unfortunate ‘others.’ Later, its ‘business as usual.’ And so it goes until, God forbid, the victim is you.We have a singular focus: to keep you aware and safe. If we must go against convention, so be it. We’re not looking to earn a congeniality award, thank you.

—Jane Austen Dickey, Gene Cartwright
