I like the Enterprise Rockers – a group founded to make life fairer for micro-businesses.
The way it works is that anyone can become what is known as a “Band Leader” – meaning form a local group with the aim to support each other in business. Not only to sell to each other, but also to get work together – to collaborate.
This, you could take to an extreme, by creating ‘non-competitive’ enterprise rocker bands. Find micro businesses that complement your skills and products, agree to partner with each other and then
- find new work together;
- find work for other band members;
- subcontract for other band members;
- recommend each other;
This way each member micro-business will have a greater punch when it comes to getting new work.
