This book Creative Collaborations, showed me I didn't know all I thought I did. Kirsten is meticulous in sharing details about how to (and how not to) go about forming relationships that bless both the one pursuing the collaboration and the one who agrees to the partnership. She reveals the benefits of reaching up, reaching down (to work with someone who is where you were before) and reaching out (to those at your same level). She discusses details of legalities (so important) without being boring.
Kirsten's writing style is personal and engaging. She tells her own stories in such a way that you move through the book quickly and remember what you have read. Her content is practical and applicable. I am already using what I learned in her book. Not only is there advice on how to ask people to join with you (or allow you to join with them) but Kirsten gives concrete, succinct advice on such things as formulas for giving constructive criticism. Priceless.
If you are a writer, blogger or have an online platform, I recommend you get a copy of Kirsten's book, and then go out there and collaborate with some people. As Kirsten said, "Working together makes us better and pushes us forward further and faster."
"Collaborative Collaborations" is a thorough book covering all types of collaborations. Kirsten speaks from personal experience, but also brings in others to speak on their experiences with all types of collaborations.
She starts off the book with an introduction titled "What Roller Derby Taught Me About Collaboration." Even though collaborations are currently something not on my radar, the introduction title had me hooked. The book is a fast read--Kirsten covers various types of collaborations with thorough explanations, rankings for time and commitment levels, and input from others with experience in specific types of collaborations. Before committing to a collaboration, read this book first to make a well-informed decision and then go and collaborate.
What I liked best is that Kirsten offers a wide variety of ways you can creatively collaborate with others while honoring your own personality and business style. Additionally, she provides insight that allows you to evaluate the effort and risk levels of various partnering opportunities. In addition, throughout the book, Kirsten includes fun and insightful tips from her colleagues across a broad spectrum of online expertise.
Creative Collaborations offers a great overview of a lot of different collaborative opportunities -- just enough information to get you started on further investigation, and without the overwhelm. I highly recommend it to others who want to grow their business in new and creative ways!
What I love most about the book - is that it's a collaboration. She invited other bloggers to share their insights and tips too!
Working with others doesn't have to be hard or even frustrating. Learn from Kirsten how to make your partnerships a success.
Note: I was provided an advance review copy of this book. All opinions here are my own.
Suffice to say that I am a believer in collaborations. Next to communities, they are the most powerful tool for business.
While I am honored to be included in the book, I also learned from it as well. Kirsten has an accessible style and it is packed with actionable tips. I read the sections about affiliate partnerships, building a course and newsletter swaps with interest since I haven't really used any of this tactics yet.
