Indie Life: Joint Ventures


Second Wednesday Each Month

This is the second Wednesday of the month, which makes it Indie Life day. I had to check my calendar on this one, because it feels a lot later than just the second Wednesday of May, doesn't it? Anyway...
My topic for today is Joint Ventures.  Joint Venture is a business term meaning two separate businesses coming together for a specific period of time for both businesses mutual good, and in the Indie world you see this all the time. Writers join with other writers and do a blog hop, editors offer their services in exchange for a cover design for their own books; the list goes on and on. This is huge. Because all of the sudden you don't just have one person vested in your business, you have more, and it can be a lot more. So look for it, look for businesses you can help and that can help you. Basically, I'm saying we're not as Indie as we thought, or at least we shouldn't be.

So, what do you think? Is it time for a Joint Venture?
