I Can Haz … My Own Business?

With apologies to those out there who love the so-called LOL cats, this is a quick blog post on the idea that, with today’s technology and access to worldwide talent, it is actually possible for a person to set up a global enterprise with virtual offices as far flung as China and India, or as close by as the local Starbucks.

I know. I’ve done it.

Okay, to be honest, the folks at Siemens and IBM don’t need to look over their shoulders … yet. But the point is, broadband access, personal computing capability and social media have created a completely new playing field for micro-enterprise and small business to play in the same sand box as the big global corporations.

Part of the goal of this blog and the Talent Hub project is to show you how it can be done … from having dozens of people working for you around the globe to some of the lifestyle design tips adapted from Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Work Week. And more. So keep an eye on this blog, there’s lots more to come!
