How to start & run a collective?

Hi everyone, I’m in the early stages of putting together a collective. It will be to help entrepreneurs publish books.

(One example of a collective being Hoxby)

I’ve never put one of these together before. And so:

  • What should I be thinking about?

  • Do you know any examples of collectives run “well” (or badly)?

  • How do you identify the right people for a collective?

  • How many people should I start the collective with? How often should people be added to the collective?

  • Are there any best practices for running a collective?

I’m grateful for any contributions, however small, you might be able to share.

Thank you.
