Did the recent U.S. stock-market dip make you worried about the future of your freelance work? If so, you’re not alone.
I’ve been getting anxious emails from freelance writers ever since stocks suddenly ended their long upward climb earlier this month, and took a big dip.

Let me walk you through what’s happening now, and give you concrete steps to take right now to help you sail through a recession with a solid freelance income.
