What does it mean to be radically remote? For us, ‘radically remote’ isn't just a catchy phrase. It's a defiant stance against the age-old narrative that confines productive work to office cubicles.

It's about championing the undeniable merits of remote work, busting the baseless myths that plague it, and guiding remote leaders through a galaxy of challenges.

We wanted to create a community of remote leaders who could share information, ideas and learn from each other to advance the remote work cause.

And we did.

We launched The Radically Remote Newsletter on LinkedIn 4 months ago in May. Since then, our rebel community has grown to over 1.6 million subscribers – the largest anywhere in the world.

The outpouring of insight, positive sentiment and genuine engagement has been incredible!

Our first edition. We launched Radically Remote into the world and held our breaths. We knew that history would prove us right, but first we needed evidence that people felt as passionately about the cause as we do. Of course, over 800,000 of you responded.

Our biweekly newsletter was born!

Edition 2 

You Get What You Pay For (Why Cheap Labor is a Rookie Mistake)

Radically Remote Newsletter: Edition 2

[5 min read]

Our second edition challenged the idea that when you hire people overseas, they can be so much cheaper. Equating cost with value is essential when hiring remote talent.

Yet companies hire abroad to save a buck, then wonder why they get a revolving door of talent, plummeting morale and a tarnished reputation as a result. Go figure! 

Global outsourcing is all about paying the best people well. We hit 1 million subscribers after this edition launched.

Edition 3

License to Upskill: The Two Sides of Remote Work Autonomy

Radically Remote Newsletter: Edition 3

[5 min read]

The third edition spoke about the pros and cons of being an independent contractor. Everyone here at Crossover is an independent contractor, so we weren’t short on stories.

The conclusion that we came to is that it’s a high stakes game, but the rewards are just as high. That’s why it isn’t for everyone. But none of us would ever give it up, and this edition outlines why.

Edition 4 

Breaking The Time/Space Continuum with Async Work

Radically Remote Newsletter: Edition 4

[5 min read]

Our fourth edition fell on ‘international work from home day,’ which we celebrated. It would been all out, but some people still believe WFH is the same as remote work – which it absolutely isn’t.

So, we created a beginner’s guide to asynchronous work instead and themed it around time travel. To clarify some murkier terms for novices.

Has Your Boss Caught Hybrid Hysteria? The Challenges of Remote Work

Radically Remote Newsletter: Edition 5

[5 min read]

In our fifth installment of Radically Remote, we zoomed in on hybrid work, and how people define it. It’s a topic we needed to address, so we did it in the form of an article on hybrid models.

Using the quadrant we designed, our hope was to help companies better define how they set and implement hybrid work policies in business.

Edition 6 

Are Degrees Overrated? Here’s What Congress Says…

Radically Remote Newsletter: Edition 6

[5 min read]

In our sixth edition, we questioned the relevance of degrees as reliable indicators of job fit. While a degree might unlock opportunities and wealth, it's high time we tore down this Paper Ceiling.

Along with our insights on degrees, our Out of Office episode dissected the detrimental effects of job gatekeeping on countless hopefuls, centering on the hard evidence behind it.

Dysfunctional async teams are hard to catch and fix, which is why hard-hitting solutions like the Goldilocks Method work.
