I’ve been getting this question a lot over the past few months, and reasonably so; What really is a recession? Well, in simple words... growth stops, and economic activity starts to decline. Especially after a period of unsustainable growth. And for a lot of people, this is a scary time. News headlines, articles, and especially following a period of inflation... people are left wondering what to do with their finances. But this doesn’t have to be a cause for panic.
