Looking for a recession proof business? Bail bonds
Random thoughts on a Sunday: Am I the only one who has noticed an explosion of bail bond advertising on local TV? One of two things are happening: either local TV is aggressively slashing their rates to attract business or your neighbor and mine is ending up in the slammer for brandishing their Glock at a downtown bar. The commercials always start the same way: a concerned (and attractive) woman in a beautiful home gets "the call" that hubby is behind bars, and the wonderful and deeply concerned folks at the local bail bond joint step in to the rescue. I Googled "Bakersfield bail bonds" and it indicated 55,000 searches! Yikes. Not sure if I have been in another market where bail bondsmen are mainstream advertising.
