I travel a lot for work – flying all over the country to be a keynote speaker or brand ambassador – depending on which business I am traveling for. It puts me staying alone in hotel rooms a LOT. In fact it puts me a lot of places alone – parking garages, restaurant parking lots, etc. I have always been the kind of person that can “spook” myself in the dark, but I have also had a few times that I have felt genuinely uneasy and sometimes downright scared. However, for the last few months I have been carrying a few personal security items with me that I received from Independent Damsel in Defense Consultant Valerie Stone, and I have felt much more at ease.
Damsel in Defense is about equipping women with the tools to not only keep us safe but to give us the confidence to know we have a way out if we ever do feel threatened. Whether you are at home running the greenbelt or celebrating downtown with the girls, Damsel in Defense has the products and fact-based education that can and does save lives!
For Christmas in July, Valerie sent me three of her top selling products – Pouch O’Pepper Spray, Step Off Door Alarm, and Aquanet Keepsafe Diversion Safe. Now It took me a minute to realize what the “bottle of hair spray” was doing in the Damsel in Defense Box. It wasnt until my assistant Elizabeth said “Oh, I bet it is a safe” that I figured out what it was. It looks EXACTLY like a normal can or hair spray, but there is a safe cylinder inside – perfect for storing valuables in your home or hotel room. The Step Off Door Alarm I just put right in front of the hotel door for added security. Yes I lock the door – but how many movies have you watched where the bad guy was able to get in through that locked door? Right.
My favorite though is the Pouch O’Pepper Spray with a Zebra print pouch. Besides it being small and portable (and cute!), it makes me feel MUCH more confident when I am alone in parking garages, vacant parking lots, or walking long corridors to my hotel room. Unlike my taser (or “stun gun”), I can keep a safe distance away from an attacker, and still stop any kind of attack while giving me time and distance to get away.
Pepper spray enables you to defend yourself while keeping a safe distance from an attacker. A one second burst to the face will cause temporary blindness, choking, coughing, and nausea-bringing the attacker to his knees. The active ingredient in Damsel In Defense pepper spray is Oleoresin Capsicum (O.C.), commonly referred to as red pepper. When considering which pepper spray is most effective, one must consider the percentage of pepper being used and the heat rating of that pepper (measured in Scoville Heat Units or S.H.U.). At 18% and two million S.H.U., Damsel In Defense carries the hottest, most powerful pepper spray available worldwide. The potency of this spray enables it to bring down even the most aggressive assailants.
Whether you travel a lot like I do, or you just want an added sense of security in your daily life, you have got to check out Valerie Stone’s Damsel in Defense website to see everything they offer for personal security, and an incredible business opportunity, and enter to win the same three products I received below!
