I dont think this article goes far enough, especially the section on “recession proof your work”.

For someone in business, I would add:

Ensure you keep up to date with what’s happening in the Environment (micro and macro) so that you are up to speed when it comes to being knowledgeable; continue to read widely; really fully recognise the portfolio of skills your have to offer; dont be put off by the doom and gloom merchants cos they obviously dont think positively, one person’s gloom is another person’s opportunity! Keep persisting with your goals until someone recognises that your talents and interventions will help them solve their problems. Take calculated risks. Draw on your inner strength and resilience to ride the waves whilst others may flounder!

Yes, even if there is a recession then its even more important to demonstrate to others that you have what it takes (analytical, embrace change and risk, decisive, intuitive, people skills and a support network). So just keep on talking to people (as I do) and once the door is open do stuff they will remember you by! Make sure you are delivering results – people will take notice, remember you and you’ll keep the work flowing even in a recession!

These are the tips I would add to “recession-proof your life!”
