What if you could build a business that is recession-proof? It’s not as far-fetched as you might think.

Recessions hurt everyone, both skilled and unskilled, employed and unemployed. There are fewer jobs to go around, and that demand for employment drives down wages. Four years after a recession highly skilled workers begin to recover, while moderately skilled workers are just starting to regain some of their lost ground. Those who graduate into recessions may never recover from them as opportunities to get a good start just never materialize.

Tax Preparation Might Be A Good Call

Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to have a degree in accounting or any other college education to be a tax preparer. Once you go through your tax training course you can gain a certification to be a tax preparer. It’s a steady job that is always in need no matter what the economy is doing because people will always have to pay taxes. You can also work as much or as little as you want, seasonally or year-round, full time, part time, or around your own schedule, making it a great option for families with small children or anyone who wants flexibility in their lives.
