Entrepreneurship can be hard, lonely work. Why do everything in a vacuum when you could join forces, amplify one another's voices, and succeed together?
#CollaborationOverCompetition is no longer just a trendy hashtag, it’s a way of life and a key component for the success of your business. In this community, you'll be able to connect and collaborate with future old friends, learn the in's and out's of how to run successful partnerships, and be part of a collective of people who believe as strongly about the power of collaboration as you do.
The Collaboration Coalition is for you if:
✨ Growing your community with like-minded people who could become collaborators, amplifiers of your work, and lifelong friends is a priority for you.
✨ You're ready to collaborate to grow your business but could use some advice, feedback, and knowledge.
✨ You want to gain visibility for your business by putting yourself out there as a thought leader through speaking, being a guest on podcasts, or contributing articles to blogs but don’t know how to find those opportunities.
✨ You've collaborated in the past but are looking for new partners, helpful templates, and fresh ideas.
In the Collaboration Coalition, this community of entrepreneurs, creators, and thought leaders recognize that collaboration isn’t just one potential way of moving forward, it’s THE way forward. We know that it will be through combining our resources, ideas, and energy that we will achieve anything worth being proud of in our business and life.
Virtual hangs in the Collaboration Cafe on the first Friday of each month where you'll be able to meet and mingle with fellow members

Member Spotlights so we can get to know one another on a deeper level and identify potential partners or new friends
Members can post and look for current opportunities to collaborate with one another
Members are invited to add their information to the Expertise for Exposure Database, which will enable us to know who's looking for what kind of opportunities to speak, teach, guest blog post, or be a guest on podcasts
As we all hear of partnership opportunities in our communities, Collaboration Coalition members are the first to know
Each month, a new concept under the collaboration umbrella will be introduced and include a lesson, key takeaways, and a challenge for you to put that information into practice right away
Members can post any questions they have around partnerships or collaborations and either fellow members or Collaboration Coalition Founder, Baily Hancock will provide feedback
On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, Baily does a 45-minute Collaboration Coaching Call where members ask for advice or feedback on whatever collaborations they're working on
Members are invited to add themselves to the Member Directory so fellow members can learn more about them and their business
Members are encouraged to share any exciting news about themselves or their business, new offerings, their lead magnet, or anything else they'd like to promote to the community
