Baily Hancock is a Collaboration Consultant, Speaker, and Podcast Host who helps entrepreneurs gain credibility through collaboration and grow their business.

A natural-born connector and professional friend-maker, Baily has spent her life expanding and nurturing her network, priding herself on being only a few degrees of separation from just about anyone (including Kevin Bacon.)

Through her 1:1 consulting, group programs, podcast, and speaking gigs, Baily teaches people to collaborate with their community to achieve their goals. A self-described, "Type-A with a dash of woo", she provides entrepreneurs with the practical tools they need to succeed in business and empowers them with the motivation they need to feel inspired doing it.

Always the over-involved extracurricular lover, Baily’s a board member for The Love Kitchen LA, the Past President of the Santa Monica Jaycees, and a member of Ellevate Network, BRA - Business Relationship Alliance, Bossladies, and Levo Los Angeles. When she's not busy doing all of the above, Baily enjoys actual walks in the park, listening to way too many podcasts, and sitting on her porch with her fat cat, Buster, and her normal sized husband, Charlie.

If You Build It They Will (Most Likely Not) Come: Overcoming the Failure to Launch

I was not always a person who embraced failure well. For the majority of my life, I pretty much achieved whatever I set out to, whether it was getting the lead in the school play or winning the coveted role of “Principal for the Day” in fifth grade. Perhaps my many early achievements were to blame for causing my first failure to feel catastrophic rather than just par for the course.

Are you afraid of commitment?

Rather, says Baily, you should think about your career in one-year increments. By doing this, “it enables you to focus on only the next couple of steps ahead of you.” She explains, “We’re far less likely to feel overwhelmed when we consider not what we’re going to do with our entire life, but instead, what we’re going to do in the next 365 days.”

Embracing the 1-year career

"Many of us pursue a career path that a younger, more naive version of us chose at college orientation, but that person couldn’t possibly have anticipated who we’d become in the decades ahead. By embracing “The 1-Year Career” mentality, we’re able to make real-time decisions about what we want today, not what 18-year-old us thought we’d want."

"What motivates me in life is knowing that when I die, I want to feel like I went back to the "life buffet" for multiple plates and tried every damn item on the menu. I want to be that person who gets kicked out of the buffet for eating too much and has her face put on a "do not serve" sign hanging up in the restaurant! That won't happen if I only go up for one round of food, aka being content with my career/relationships/life based on what I chose in my twenties."

5 Tips: What to do When You Want to do it All

"What I finally came to realize was that choosing something to focus on doesn’t mean shutting out your other ideas forever, it just means you put the primary one on the front burner, and the others on the side or back burners. You’ve still got all of those pots on the stove, but you’re focusing the majority of your efforts on the meal you’re planning to eat first.”

4 Ways the Back-to-School Mentality Can Help You at Work

“The key to defining a successful work routine is to make sure it fits your personal work style. Everyone is productive by doing various tasks at different times of the day, so it shouldn't be a one-size-fits-all approach," Hancock says. "Whatever your most productive hours are, be sure your team (and boss) are on the same page so they know what to expect from you when."
