Can See Them, Don’t Know Their Address
For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
Recently, a friend made an observation about working on the Internet. It went like this . . .
He said that that the Internet contractors, developers, consultants, and coaches he’s worked with all have a problem in in common. “They’re not grounded in the brick and mortar world.”
You asked him what he meant.
He said, “My experience is that people I work with all over the world, who have employment and a regular paycheck in structures where other people work, show up when situations get difficult. People I’ve hired on the Internet disappear when projects get difficult or they get overwhelmed.”
You point to folks you know who’ve never had that problem.
He points to the situations that tie those folks to brick and mortar. He suggests that you establish local business saying that, “The Internet will always be filled with people who can easily flee their responsibilities and therefore businesses that are solely Internet based will never have complete credibility.”
How do you respond?
