Hi Sue, I really believe that the current global economy favors those of us who freelance. When companies downsize, it is terribly unfortunate for those who get cut, but it sure can help out a freelancer!

Hi Sue,

I'm -always- telling friends and staff colleagues that freelancing is virtually recession proof. In fact, my work picks up in a down economy.

I find it interesting how many times I get asked "But isn't it scary not knowing where your next check is coming from?" This means they probably don't have a healthy savings account, which I do as a result from being forced to budget because I freelance. I'm surprised how many people who know exactly where their paycheck is coming from don't save it. Their question about my pay also tells me they value job security, which is really a false sense of security these days.

So I usually just answer "Not as scary as going to a job everyday I hate and being worried about getting laid off." That shuts them up. :-)
