Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Years ago, I heard a great quote that has become one of my favorites. It goes like this: “In every adversity lies the seed to an equal or greater benefit.” Currently, our country is in a major economic crisis. But for the enterprising freelance writer, this crisis is the seed to an equal or greater benefit. 

You see, many companies who employed in-house staff writers have had to lay them off. This means that these companies are now outsourcing their writing projects to freelancers to whom they don’t have to pay benefits. For those of us who are psychologically and professionally ready, we can seize this opportunity and turn it into major profits. 

Writing success is, in large part, about seeing the glass half full, not half empty. What about you? Are you looking at the negative aspects of the economic crisis? Or are you catching the wave and turning this adversity into your greatest benefit? 

The choice is yours!

  1. I like: Necessity is the mother of invention.

    Sometimes when we’re in a corner, we come up with a brillant idea. It’s not always fun to be in that position, but there it is.

    We have to keep going.
