Personal sovereignty is the freedom to live your life on your own terms, and it looks different for everyone. For people like us and the folks we talk to on this channel, it means homesteading, or living off the grid in a self-sufficient manner. Sovereignty could mean growing one's own food, raising their own animals, catching their own water, and generating their own power.
