A friend recently asked me how the recession is affecting my business. I replied that, because I don’t have all my eggs in one basket, I’m not feeling major effects from the economic downturn. When one division of my three-fold business falls behind, another one picks up.
Do you have all your writing eggs in one basket? If so, diversify. Branch out into other genres of writing. Or do somea para-writing to get you over the hump, like editing or proofreading. Many business have had to lay off their in-house, staff writers and are looking for freelancers to fill in the gap. What looks like an adversity to the rest of the world can be your moment of greatest opportunity. So carpe diem! 🙂
