There was someone who develops sessions for people with neurological disorders, but peddles them on the Web. An expert in SAP software was showing off his new Website. And one of our members does juggling as a sidelight. Not to mention the fact that the GoNOMAD, which caters to the virtual work place, also has an a Website at gonomad.com, which features its own blog.
Just about the main thing we have in common is that we use technology, work from a small office setting and run a small business. But other than that, we do everything and anything. A few years ago I set out to find out exactly what folks in the virtual world actually do and together with Rich Roth, owner of TNR Global in Greenfield, Mass., developed a prototype skills inventory that sits at www. hidden-tech.net.
These broad career and occupation headers don't begin to tell you a tiny percentage of what virtual company owners are doing. It's everything except building a car or house in their small office. But they could well be designing one or the other.
Take a peek at this list and tell me what you think. Does it blow your mind?
