â€œYou can do this, too!â€
The Recession-Proof Freelancer is a must-have for any writer trying to make a living during an economic nose-dive.Â In it, the ever-pragmatic Carol Tice brings more to the table than a 12-point plan for thriving in hard times. She carries those points on a charger of empathy. Because unlike all the other voices spitting platitudes, theories, and half-baked ideasÂ of what theyÂ thinkÂ will keep your business floating through the Sea of Hard Times, sheâ€™s actually commandeered her own ship through the squall, rose the wave, and brought it safely back to harbor. In this short, value-packed little book, Carol shares what weâ€™ve all grown to expect from herâ€“practical stepping stones to show the way. But she doesnâ€™t send you off alone. She holds your hand, looks you in the eye, and tells you, â€œYou can do this, too!â€
