What does a recession have to do with me?

With the fall of Bear Sterns, the problems with Lehman Bros. and Merrill Lynch, many people get discouraged about the market. True, there is something to think about but even in a recession there are still people that prosper and survive. I truly believe it is all in how you think about it. Okay, so yeah there are facts to consider. The market is slow. The economy is not the greatest but you can still have a positive attitude about it and continue to work hard. So, the full time job situation did not work out. How about freelancing, consulting or even temping? There are ways to still make it in a not so great market. You just have to be open.

So, when people ask me if I am afraid of the country being in a recession, I just smile and say "What does that have to do with me?" As an individual, I have the choice to create my own reality and my choice is to make the most and best of any situation.
