Inspired by my induction into Collaborative Consumption last week I have been thinking:
I don’t particularly like marketing.
Interesting projects are becoming much harder to find these days.
I would much rather spend my time working on projects and facilitating workshops as that is what I do best.
Spare time should be used for the social good not searching for scraps.
Friends, colleagues and network contacts have been responsible for almost every piece of work I have done since going independent.
I was wondering if it would work to formalise this emergent business situation with a few simple incentives.
1. Set up work for someone and earn 20% of their fee.
2. Set up any work and join in,
ie for personal experience, coaching, further training
and share the profits and credit 50:50
3. At least 30% of projects done for the social good
This would enable:
anyone with good connections to make money from finding work (an emergent agency)
those looking for work opportunities a chance to try their hand as ‘associates’.
the evolution of collaborative working, attracted by incentives of financial reward, knowledge sharing and public good.
What do people think about this?
Are the percentages ok?
Anyone want to be a part of it?
