Recession, the R word, is everywhere. The sky is falling and every business is dying and we're all going bankrupt. Run for cover because this may be the end for all of us!
People hear the word recession and they panic. The press gets ahold of something and makes it seem a thousand times worse than it really is.

The bottom line is that if you provide a high quality service that solves your customers problems you’ll thrive in any economic environment. Many businesses thrive during recessions by providing products and services absolutely need and can’t live without. Business owners should look at what products and services they provide and add some recession proof items to their menu of offerings.
