bail ansari collaboration liz olson Jun 13, 2024

For this episode, I'm thrilled to introduce you to our two special guests, Bail and Liz. They met recently through my Professional Creative Business Coaching Program (PCBC), and their unique story of collaboration and co-launching caught my attention. Today, we'll dive into their individual journeys, their collaborative venture, and the impact it has had on their businesses and even their personal lives.

Bail and Liz each have thriving businesses and sought out coaching through PCBC to further their success. Despite having different businesses and course offerings, they found common ground and identified a gap in the industry that they could fill together. This episode will highlight the similarities and differences in their approaches, and how these aspects played a role in their successful collaboration.

One of the key hurdles to collaboration is not just the idea itself but the myriad of little details that need to come together. Bail and Liz will share the challenges they faced and how they overcame them, using the lessons learned through coaching. Their co-launch was a testament to the power of teamwork and strategic planning, and they'll walk us through what made it so successful. From splitting the workload based on strengths and weaknesses to leaning on each other for support, their story is full of valuable insights and even some surprises.

We'll also discuss the mindset shifts they experienced, the trust they built, and the personal growth they underwent as a result of their partnership. Whether you're considering a collaboration or looking for ways to enhance your business, this episode is packed with insights and practical advice that you won't want to miss.
