Is Freelance Writing Recession-Proof?
In today's tumultuous economic climate, it's hard not to be impacted by the things that are going on around us, no matter where we hang our hats and call home.
Though comparatively some areas have it better than others, and some industries are hurting less in terms of unemployment and a decline in business, I think that we can all attest to the fact that we are headed for some "challenging" times.
For those of us that are freelancers, our dynamics may be a little bit different.
But that doesn't mean that we are immune to the devastation of the day.
Which brings me to these relevant questions...
How are your freelancing finances? Are you taking on projects you wouldn't have in the past?
Are you finding less work?
Are clients paying later? Less money?
Are you more inclined to seek the security of a "9 to 5" from fear?
Are you living "leaner and meaner"?
Or are you pretty much the same as you have been?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Talk to me and let me know what's on your mind.
