Blame it on Peter Bowerman! You know, the guy who writes those Well-Fed books? In a comment here he pointed to a post of his called Is There Such a Thing as a Recession-Proof Client or Industry?
The post is okay, probably not his best writing, but certainly not his worst either. He makes it clear good skills are what keeps the money flowing in. (He also alludes to dinner gatherings I’d love to attend and I realize I don’t even know what part of the country he’s in. Ah, there it is, Atlanta – the other side of the country from me, sigh.)
It’s the discussion he’s started that’s getting interesting. He’s inviting his readers to name recession-proof industries and types of businesses. Worth taking a look at the ever growing list and adding your own find to it if you like.
