Kissimmee, Florida (PressExposure) May 20, 2009 -- The writing was on the wall. The US was heading for an economic meltdown none had ever seen. Suddenly the stock market was in trouble, the housing market was declining at an alarming rate, businesses were experiencing declines in sales that forced many of them to close and millions of people out of work and still are today.
It's taking the average unemployed person 3-4 months or longer to find a job nowadays. One industry where there is a real demand, is freelance writing for companies on the internet to substitute a lost income.
"Well, she told me about her sister, who had recently left her boring dead-end job to become a writer - and how without any previous writing experience, she was banking $3,000 to $6,000 a month" Lindsay Calhoun from Seattle, Washington.
Now less than four years later, Lindsay has created her own successful internet writing career.
The satisfaction of owning your own business with the ability to set your own hours is extremely attractive.
"Remember, right now there's a shortage of writers. Thousands of businesses need writers, and not necessarily great ones. Many companies want entry level writers that they can mold into the writers they want" Lindsay Calhoun reiterates.
