So during #LOTE3 I ran a session with Alberto about hiring oneself through Edgeryders. In it I synthesised my insights on something I have been giving a lot of thought to, and experimenting with hands on. Making sense of how to get from an idea to money in the bank, and learning to get better at it over time. Or as Alberto puts it, the fine art of making business deals happen.
This stuff is really hard and costly. What makes it a lonely, exhausting and really risky process as a non-employee is having no one to talk to and collaborate with. But what happens if you are approach this as a network of individuals, acting towards shared goals? Is it possible to coordinate our work, and collaborate loosely so that we are becoming better at doing this and supporting one another’s ability to make a living? Both as a network and as individuals? I think so. We are just beginning to explore network dynamics and how to build, grow and leverage social capital towards being able to make a living. Already what we have achieved in Edgeryders defies expectations of how big things get done.
And in a previous post I had started outlining a process by which we could take this challenge on and learn how to become really really awsome at this as a network.
