Seth Godin’s blog post today is incredibly valuable for anyone who is out of work and would like to return to earning. He gives three suggestions of high-value, attention-getting expertise you can provide:
- Learn to sell
- Learn to write
- Learn to produce extraordinary video and multimedia.
You may have to do one or more of these (I do all three–sales trainer & prospecting subcontractor, copywriter & scriptwriter) as a freelancer, especially starting out, but the work is interesting, you’re making contacts, developing a reputation, and not sitting on the couch worrying.
