Remote Working from Anywhere

I know it’s not summer for everyone reading FreelanceSwitch right now, but up here in Canada it still is. And one of my favourite things to do in the summer is to camp, but this year it was a little bit different, since this was my first summer as a fulltime freelancer.

Sure, I could have gotten way ahead of my projects, but where’s the fun in that? Instead, I figured it might be possible to tether my iPhone to the laptop, and keep connected while everyone else was making smores. We’re back home now, and other than a slight campfire smell coming from the laptop, it’s pretty hard to tell that I was not at my office all week. The clients were communicated with, the articles were uploaded, and the invoices were sent – all while enjoying way too much junk food, liquid refreshments, and beautiful hikes through an amazing forest.

What Is A Social Enterprise? There Is Still A Lot Of Debate? By Idris Mootee

Social enterprise is a hot idea. Being asocial entrepreneurship these days is way cooler than being a iBanker. I think we are only seeing the beginning of a long term trend, people realize it takes a new kind of enterprise to solve the world’s problem. And NGOs are not the solutions.

Innovation Failure & Ownership: What happens when we own our successes and abdicate our failures by Andrew (DrewCM)

Innovation is a high-stakes endeavor. Much may be risked on the hoped-for chance of reward. The success or failure of a single innovation may win or lose reputations and careers. In some organizations, the retribution for failure may be swift and harsh, while the rewards for success may be just as fickle

Is Innovation a Process or an Outcome? By Karen Christensen via Ralph Ohr

You believe that everything we know and desire is the outcome of a single discovery that was made 1.9 million years ago. Please explain.
