You Might Have a Closet Freelancer on Your Staff Many Millennials are biding their time at regular jobs and freelancing on the side until the time is right to leave. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of those who work regular jobs want to quit to be entirely independent; 61 percent say they likely will quit within two years, and 17 percent say they definitely will....

Recently, I interviewed Jon Eliot Ramer, an American entrepreneur, civic leader, inventor, and musician. Former Executive Director of the Interra Project, Ramer is co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Ideal Network, a group-buying social enterprise located in Seattle, Washington that donates twenty-five percent of every purchase to a local non-profit or school. He is also the designer and co-founder of the Compassionate Action Network, an organization that led the effort to make Seattle the first in the world to affirm Karen Armstrong’s Charter for Compassion. In his initial role as Executive Director, Jon conceived and launched the Ten Year Campaign for Compassionate Cities, which has now spread to over fifty cities worldwide.
