Guest Post: Kimberly S. Lin

I am pleased to have the author of Recession Proof here today. Welcome Kimberly S. Lin!

Although my book isn’t really about recession proof careers per se, this is still a fun question and I’ll do my best “Suze Orman” in answering— do I think recession proof careers exist? I think there are certain industries that will always be better cushioned in an economic downturn. Some that come to mind quickly are accounting, medical and pornography. I think I just said a mouthful.
Anyways, I do believe that outside of obvious practicalities and this is what I get at in Recession Proof— is that if you do what you love and stay true to yourself, you’ll always be fulfilled. So in essence, you’ll always have a “recession proof” career.
For me, I took the plunge last June when I quit my secure financial job and published Recession Proof and essentially became an entrepreneur. Since then, I’ve been working on my second novel and am the Publisher and Co-Founder of Minted Magazine, a digital magazine empowering women in their careers and life. Even though, I probably work 18-hour days, including weekends— I never feel as though I’m “working.” And that’s incredibly rewarding in it of itself.

We should all be so lucky to do something we really love.  Thank you so much for stopping by Kimberly!
