first off, get a vehicle made before 1985-ish, what you want, carburator, minimum emissions equipment. fill the trunk, or bed if it's a truck, with, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and motor oil. also, get a very common tire/rim size, 14 or 15 inch, because, although large rims are popular now, 14 and 15 inch rims were the norm for 50 years or so. making those sizes more common. also, the vehicle should either be a ford or chevrolet, or a chrysler product (if you are in the US) preferable with a 300 cu inline six, or 302 v8 (Ford), a 250 inline six, 231 v6, or any small block V8(Chevrolet), or a 170 or 225 slant six, or 318 V8 (Chrysler product) not only are these all reliable and low maintenace engines, they are super numerous and parts are easy to come by, most of them were used in one form or another for at least 30 years and most parts are interchangeable.
buy or make a stil and learn how to make alcohol out of wood and other non food sources, this is not to drink, but to use as fuel and also to sterilize things, if you want to drink, grow corn and potatoes to turn into alcohol.
grow, corn, potatoes, squash, and peppers, maybe a few fruits if your climate permits them. get a few heifers and a bull, get several hens and a rooster.
learn to be a mechanic, carpenter, welder, learn to shoot, hunt, fish, farm, reload ammunition.
learn which plants are edible, which are not, same with fungus, example-- you can make a pretty decent soup out of dandelions.
learn to make butter. stock up on salt and black pepper, also, get a few bee hives, honey (which hasn't been mentioned yet) will be worth it's weight, in, well, it will probably be like diamonds.
i know this sounds like a lot, but honestly, i'm 24 and can do all these things, so it's not that big a deal, also, dig yourself an outhouse, and i suggest finding if it's possible to make your own paper. also, buy a loom.
i'm sure i've probably forgotten something, but i don't think so.

Im sure pimps will do just fine. They sell women. Truth be told. most women sell themselves everyday for monetary gain anyway. Married = sex = money. Job and low cut necklines and short dresses = ? = money. Strippers = more money than even a respectable job. Prostitutes = money for the owner of the women. Women will be the most useful commodity when the system breaks. They will be worth money.
