Supporting Communities in Climate Crisis

This is  guest post by Kelly Upton, Interior Trading Company.

It’s hot. I’m tired and sweating. The tuk tuk bounces over endless pot holes leaving a dusty cloud in its wake.  In transit, the rush of air brings welcome yet short lived relief.

We arrive at the canal known as ‘the port’ but there are no boats […]

Conducting Business the Right Way: What’s Legal Isn’t Always What’s Right

I recently attended a conference in Asia for entrepreneurs. A lot of the people I really look up to were in attendance at this conference – people who have done amazing things – and it was fantastic to meet some of them in person.

How to Build a Great Team Culture (When all Your Staff Work Remotely)

‘Team culture’ is a major buzz-term of 2015, as startups everywhere try to attract the best talent through incentives and gimmickery on a scale unforeseen since the great bubble of the late 1990s.

In many ways, it’s more important to focus on this with a remote team of contractors, because while they come for the money, they stay for the culture.

Mel and I have been operating our businesses with a large virtual team for the past three years. During this time, we have had over 60 staff members work with us, for periods of time from an hour to eighteen months.

Needless to say, we’ve learned a lot in this time.
