It's always doable. I was out of full-time work for over 22 months,
and in an area with near-zero opportunities of any kind aside from
fast food and gas stations. I took the time to enhance my personal
brand and beef up my web presence, and was able to land short-term
contracts from many different companies located all over the globe.

In the course of doing that I not only kept my techcomm tools and
skills sharp, but also learned a ton about social media. I also
volunteered my time to several different organizations, helping with
initiatives that fit my talents.
