telecommuting okay

We are assembling our legal superstars/strategic-growth team to join with an exciting, dynamic group of entrepreneurs (building businesses for the future that actually have VALUE to society).

Look, let's be honest. Could you, someday make partner? Sure - estimates are a very small percentage of associates actually even do (but keep in mind, if you play futurist for a second, by the time you've wasted your best years, 'partner' may not even be a thing). Time to find out soldier. Ever heard of sales and biz dev.? Enjoy bullshitting people while billing $400-$800 per hour for recycled noise? Yes? Well then stop reading this now, we wish you the best, and tune up your law career here, stat: https://careers.findlaw.com/legal-career-options/what-if-after-seven-years-you-dont-make-partner-whats-next.html.

Still with us? Awesome. Maybe make Partner? Well...so what.

You're in your late 20s/30s at this point. Do you really believe, deep down, that it is even remotely logical to give up being a HUMAN BEING for a single-digit % shot at making 'Partner'. Can you say honestly, to yourself, in a mirror, that you are doing this for the RIGHT REASONS? Is this really want you want...for the REST of your life?

Not thriving working on interesting, world-changing projects, products and services? With HONEST, caring, thoughtful people that are actually contributing some value to society. Just to make partner?

Likely, maybe, at a K. St. firm that, in fact, is just contributing (instrumental in ENABLING truly) to the collective forces of greed (see proof here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2019/01/11/feature/why-is-congress-so-dumb/) - clearly sucking the life out of the environment, our [Ponzi] 'economy' (such as it is), your future/current childrens' environment, what's left of the miracle of biodiversity and the human condition itself. Okay, enough meta-reality rant...if you agree with the above we hope to hear from you!

Our entreaty: Simply respond to this opportunity with some curiosity about the nature of our work if you want to learn more about contributing/engaging your legal skills, passions and experiences by working on rewarding causes that matter (and of course, potentially make a bunch of coin).

Here's a teaser sample of just two of the companies we're building that you could become a key executive/leader of a team (and part owner of, hah, a real partner from day 1 on the job!)

Legal Disclaimer :) all companies are CARBON-neutral, without even having to plant a tree:

NewCo. #1: Adventure travel company launch. Global travel as you desire. Click here for an example of jobsite working conditions (tall ships and ocean-going, carbon-fiber cats and tris):

NewCo. #2: Along with ongoing recruiting of our legal/development/design/engineering/build teams, we've begun drafting feasibility studies (to include/incorporate data and narrative supporting the elements, features, innovations, goals and objectives) for next-gen. senior independent-living - sustainable/affordable, in-community housing solutions, combining our preliminary concept plan for a potential dual-use, senior housing/science-focused preschool/Pre-K site plan.

Housing is increasingly unaffordable. Seniors' income will continue to deteriorate. Seniors are unemployable (as increasingly are most actual people frankly in this accelerating tech/AI revolution/gov. shutdown reality). Quality Preschool is damn sure unaffordable (and inaccessible) so Gen X/Millennials can even have a chance to build a career.

We plan to solve this particular problem by inspiring innovations in early-ed. leadership skills and better/more relevant curriculums, while training and employing resident seniors to become staff for our client families' kids. Seniors get new/clean/sustainable/modern accessible (fall prevention certified) housing with the option of offsetting expense with important/needed/gratifying/gainful employment - while walking to work! Parents get first-class, inspired-by-research-and-the-future, 'grandparent-skilled' caring & affordable loving care!

Prototype Project #1 below:

1. Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy-plus-house, innovating/incorporating solar (passive/active), geothermal and wind/hydro system given first location's strong perennial creek in the RPA (plan is to lift water when site is producing excess energy then convert this 'stored [kinetic] energy' and resulting head pressure for gravity/hydro-gen, super-efficient water turbines such as we use on vessels we're currently developing for our ocean ship business).

See here: https://www.powerspout.com/ and https://www.homepower.com/articles/microhydro-power/equipment-products/hydro-electric-turbine-buyers-guide.

2. Study incorporating onsite electron storage to go full https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-energy_building - that is now economical to do going forward, and possibly even then remove mean/nasty/Earth-destroying Dominion Energy from the carbon equation - for myriad reasons as discussed...it's now realistic with proper design and engineering: https://www.icf.com/resources/white-papers/2018/solar-plus-battery.

3. Later, for our follow-on projects here and on other sites, explore: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_carbon_housing, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plug-in_electric_vehicle and even https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle-to-grid to generate experiential learnings.

4. Review and analysis of/and deep leveraging of the opportunities within Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance (the RPA even) for our intended business plan/s, along with a narrative of the potential 'political' opportunities anticipated to craft/drive strategy around 'winning the day'/secure approvals for our various plans, innovations and solutions (special exceptions/special permits/variances, etc.) - that will then address/solve some of most pressing problems facing global/national/regional/local stakeholders, while also achieving 'highest-and-best-use' of this, and our other target small-parcel infill prototype/demonstration project/development.

5. Negotiate acquisition of adjacent property/ies.

6. Development of operating plan for new/better experiential, science-focused preschool/Pre-K program - curriculum to be patterned after 1 of the 6 types currently in the learning marketplace (https://www.parents.com/toddlers-preschoolers/starting-preschool/preparing/6-types-of-preschool-programs/)

See here: https://highscope.org/faq.

7. Lead innovation of/develop a [LEED] 'senior-housing' product for the future - 1st demonstration/prototype at Harrison Lane project. This area of work has some of our deepest level of career/professional experience and capability. We will lead the design/build/business teams here.

Thanks in advance for your consideration...let's get to work.
