There will be a recession in some part of the planet where some countries may be entering into a recession phase and others may be coming out of it or hoping to come out of it but it is something that will be omnipresent.
Everything was quite ok as far as growth in India was concerned and had a very stable political and business environment but ban of 500 and 1000 Rs currency has brought thousands of Indian businesses that focused only on Indian consumers at a complete halt overnight.
Analysts expect growth to revive in a couple of quarters but according to me, it can take almost a year for many small and medium businesses to get back to similar growth trajectory and 2017 can be real tough year for such business. Being a freelancer, my business is least affected because a majority of my clients are all outside India.
Freelancing is a great choice of career which beats the recession and political uncertainty as your clients and customers are from a diversified geo.
So if you want to be a freelancer, start with any one of the 9 Best Freelancing Sites. My personal preferred site is Upwork.com. Everybody should focus on being a freelancer take it up as part-time and as things move in the right direction plan to quit day job.
When I did my first homework help project in 2002-2003, freelancing was pretty much in the infancy stage and yet I could offer help on homework tasks and earn few bucks as pocket money. Same is still true and you can even be part of real live projects. What are you waiting for? Hop-on to become an independent freelancer right now.
