Simmer down ladies (and eco-minded entrepreneurs): coverboy Graham Hill, founder of Treehugger (the world’s largest green media company), is on the cover of Inc. magazine. Why?
As Graham told Inc.:
“There’s a lot of pressure to have an office, but if you can trust your employees and if you don’t have a lot of physical stuff like prototypes, then it’s a great model. You’re going to save a bunch of money on real estate, and it’s going to be good for the environment, because you’re not commuting, and you’re not using an office.”
Graham’s got a green, practical and modern (remind you of TH?) idea to teach us something about: How to Run a Virtual Company. I just participated in an Inc.-hosted live video chat on Justin.tv with a beardy, wetsuit-wearing Graham—he was generous, as always, with tips on vonage, skype, paying employees via paypal, the eco-$avings of running such a company (no commutes, fewer plane tickets, no office).
