First time I got to know the concept of team management at Wordpress was when I was having a discussion about google analytics with our developer at the café across from our office.

The guy sitting there couldn't (luckily) overhear our conversation. "I can help you, if you'd like. I am a Wordpress developer," he said.
Ok, this seriously felt like destiny. He told us about his flexi-time and how he's trying to make it happen as a performance artist in Berlin.

I think people nowadays are able to craft their careers and also get hired to do things they really enjoy doing. They just need to be open about how they work and what they like. Also, from the team perspective, if you're open as a company about how you do things, you might find people to fit exactly your culture.

I love that I am part of a team that is trying to make exactly that happen. Help people find the others by helping them show what they're all about.

I just bought the book myself and can't wait to read it. My agency is also virtual, and if there's one thing I've learned over the past nearly-four years of its existence, organization and hierarchy are still very important if you want to deliver results to your clients on time, every time. So yes, while the magical promise of the future of work has been fulfilled in many companies, the reality is that it does look a lot like the *traditional* models of work!

Cheers,
Marjorie R. Asturias
