      “You can do this, too!”

      The Recession-Proof Freelancer is a must-have for any writer trying to make a living during an economic nose-dive. 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 ideas of what they think will keep your business floating through the Sea of Hard Times, she’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 we’ve all grown to expect from her–practical stepping stones to show the way. But she doesn’t send you off alone. She holds your hand, looks you in the eye, and tells you, “You can do this, too!"
