#SocialCafe Chat Topic: Brainstorming YOUR Collaborations and Joint Ventures

View the announcement for this #SocialCafe Chat..

We are nearing the end of our series on collaboration, along with discussions of helpful tools, resources, strategies, and people! Before we wrap up this go 'round (next week), we are dedicating this chat to brainstorming

So, what is the point of brainstorming? The idea is that you allow your brain to run free and anything goes. So, while there are no rules to brainstorming, there is the rule of not criticizing each other's ideas (and not criticizing our own, either!). Brainstorming is not effective, as a strategy if we spend our time critically analyzing each idea as we go. So, let it rip. Let those ideas flow!

P.S. To the best of my knowledge, I have never removed a tweet from the transcript intentionally. This week, however, I did remove any that broke the rule of criticism, even if it was meant as constructive criticism. This week (and future chats with brainstorming) is about allowing the ideas to run free, not to restrict them! And, truly, I'd personally love to see that all the time, encouraging each other to share ideas and encouraging each other in general. That is the foundation of #SocialCafe and our desire to help each other ;)

  1. How would you define collaborations, with the idea of expanding beyond the norm?

We are learning new ways to define collaboration. Why? By brainstorming, it helps us to expand our ideas and strategies, reaching for the stars and new ideas and projects to help our business(es).

  1. Along the lines of brainstorming and expanding, what are some other related phrases or definitions?

Continuing along the ideas of expanding, we start to list other terms that come to mind when thinking about collaboration.

We are starting to see the value in coming up with out-of-the-box ideas and then growing on those concepts, as we share with each other. (I’m already looking forward to our next brainstorming #SocialCafe chat!)

  1. What are some ways that you can elaborate and expand your efforts when it comes to collaborations?

We are definitely getting creative and outside-the-box here! Even reading minds! Kathryn was thinking (tweeting) what I (Deborah) was thinking ;)

  1. What other groups of people can you add to those with whom you would collaborate? For example, what about clients?

So many wonderful ideas! I love how @KathrynCLang brings us back to that concept of helping others. Hey, that is what it is about here at #SocialCafe and I love how well Kathryn articulates that (so we don't have to -- just kidding) as well as Dianna and her brilliant observations about business! (Hint: Keep reading, we have some of Dianna's brilliant tweets coming up ... soon ;) )

  1. What are some things you would like to learn, in order to enhance your collaboration efforts?

Dianna continues to amaze us with the observations about small business versus large business and where we could benefit from that comparison.

  1. What are some bucket list items that you would like to complete or attain, to help your collaboration efforts?

Fortunately, Kathryn's wish has come true! Even though we have only known each other for a short time and we are just becoming acquainted with each other's sill sets, Kathryn and I have decided to collaborate and apply what we are learning in this #SocialCafe Twitter Chat series! And, her wish is my command, having already compiled a membership website for our partnership and I am a videographer, having creating hundreds of videos online, including series. I was the one who put together the original video series for MyBlogGuest, which inspired the Viral Content Buzz eCourse and beyond. See - benefits of collaboration! (Oh, and more on the partnership in future #SocialCafe twitter chats ;) ).

  1. What are some resources or tools that you wish you had or you wish existed, in helping you with your collaboration efforts?

Here are some familiar tools and maybe some new tools added to your list during this series on collaboration. To see previous chats in this series, click on the Calendar link at the top of the page and scroll through to see our chats in the order they occur :)

  1. What will you be doing, or doing differently this week, to help in your collaboration efforts?

We are so excited about our chats about collaboration that we are already making plans on how we will implement these strategies, this upcoming week!
