Freelancing During A Recession

Let me open this article by making a few things clear: I’m not an economist. Nor am I a virologist. And I don’t have a crystal ball.

However, given what I’m hearing from people much smarter than me, along with the recent losses in the stock market and the impending job losses, we’re headed toward another recession.

I wanted to write this article because when I started freelancing, it was right before the last recession hit in 2008. And, if you’re at all like I was, you were really worried about your business and your ability to financially survive.

It’s not uncommon for freelancers to think that we’re always just a missed invoice or lead away from collapse. That your business is built on a house of cards. So, understandably, when corporate financials sliding and lay-offs are imminent, you probably start doubting your ability to stay afloat.

Liquid Templating for ConvertKit

If you use ConvertKit and want to deliver personalized messages to your subscribers, then you’re going to want to learn Liquid.

Liquid is the templating language that ConvertKit uses behind the scenes to allow for dynamic content to be added to your emails, and if you’re not a programmer it can be… well, intimidating.

In this video, I break down what Liquid is, why it matters, and how to use it.

How To Write The Perfect Proposal

This year I probably bit off more than I could chew.

I’ve been sharing a lot of it over Twitter, but to sum things up:

  1. Bought a new house, closed on January 2
  2. Because this was an upgrade in square footage, we did the (stupid) thing and rushed to fill in the blanks with new furniture, etc.
  3. The house is 100 years old, and was built in a time when attics were built super well. I’m talking high, old growth beams and space. Decided to convert it into a swank home office.

I’m juggling the running of two different companies: Double Your Freelancing (👋) and RightMessage. My days are already jam packed.

So a “let’s hire a ton of contractors to redo the attic” project – while essential, considering I was spending my days hunched over a MacBook in the dining room – probably wasn’t all that smart of a move to make. Especially while the proverbial dust was still settling in the new house.
