Publishing her book  ‘How to build the Passion and the Profit for Your Business’ in October 2017.  A business book dedicated to business owners with 10 chapters to profit making success to apply in any business. But going that ‘extra mile’ this book is also printed in a format to enable the 30% of entrepreneurs challenged with dyslexia to read.

Gill Bailey is an author and the owner and founder of LinQs. Leading LinQs Business Coaching and our specialist training at LinQs Business Support & Training


“I help business owners and their managers grow their business and their profits faster.” 

LinQs Business Coaching evolved from my LinQs Business Support and Training consultancy, established in 2001. LinQs had been my vision of a consultancy business after selling a 90’s service business. I’d taken that business from start up to sale, management buy-out and then sale on a larger scale. We won awards and gained media recognition during that decade. I’d also held non-executive roles for an employer association and a local community trust, becoming Chair of another award winning organisation. 

My career started in the 80’s as a job analyst in a corporate manufacturing business listening and translating operative and senior management tasks to create their clearly defined  performance related descriptions. I also gained Marketing management experience in the company. Then I was promoted to the company’s first female HR Manager reporting to the Board of Directors.

So I’ve experienced the challenges of multi-site operations and the fast growth small business in an ever changing business and market economy. Learning fast, listening to experience, gaining accredited qualifications in business and training and finding mentors in those I admired. I believe the art of listening and following trusted support has been the key to overcoming my challenges.  I now share those secrets of success in the coaching work I so love today.

I enjoy listening to business owners and helping them solve the problems they face. Building those open supportive relationships you do in coaching.  I’ve been described as ‘the calm voice of reason’ and ‘switching on those light bulb moments’ by my clients. As I believe business needs passion and profit to start up and then sustain growth it had to be in the title of my first business book. But that is just 10 secrets to success, so I continually add easy to follow guides to our library to help more business owners find success.

I also love life and enjoy living in the market town of Clitheroe in rural Lancashire in the North of England. But it’s the family, friends and listening to music that make that my home. Then as the sun shines the whole world lights up for me.

Successful People: More help from LinQs

Description of the roots of successful people their belief system

Successful people are rooted in a strong belief system.  Belief in themselves.  Belief in the work they are doing. And, a belief in the people around them.

That’s certainly what keeps the successful people, the entrepreneurs focused on achieving success.

Belief and Successful People

So as an entrepreneur, when that belief starts to fail then it affects the passion and profit for your business. This was why I called my business book ‘How to Build the Passion and the Profit for Your Business’

In writing this book, it was to help new business owners to build their belief.  And established entrepreneurs to rekindle their belief. So to share those key business growth strategies.  The actual profit-making strategies that have worked time and again.

Before printing this book to ensure the strategies applied to all businesses, I interviewed many business owners. Business owners across different sectors helped to confirm the value of the content.  Many of you who took part in my research are in my network. And what was clear is that you didn’t want more case studies.  But the information describing how and what successful people did to grow their business.  The strategies used which could be worked through in your own business. That was what determined the style and content of the book.

The next steps

With all that in mind and interest in my blog and social media posts, I’m running a vlog series on my social media to share those tips and secrets with you. It’s an opportunity to share in short bursts the value of strategies and make them easy to follow.  With enough content in a short video to make you stop, think and engage with where you are going with your business strategy. A few minutes to highlight and consider the areas of your business which need your attention.

I hope you’ll join me and enjoy building your belief system again. There will be links posted on our websites and across our social media posts to let you know where and when they are running.

Let’s work to make the business grow.  After all, isn’t that why we’re here!

3 keys to future business development

Let’s get the business ready for the future.

Today I’d like to talk about the three keys to business development and how you can put the right bricks in place to build a solid foundation.

These are the main areas for a future business development strategy. So when done well the strategy for these three key areas will help you build a solid foundation for your future business. Let’s talk about each one of these in order

1. Innovation

Innovation should not be confused with creativity, which is the expression of ideas. Whereas innovation is taking these ideas and putting them into action. This is where a large amount of your focus should be in the beginning and even throughout your entire business lifespan. So you will need to create an innovative process involving the people you value in the future growth of your business.

2. Quantification

This, of course, refers to the numbers. We are talking about the value of your innovation and the best way to gauge this is by your customer response. If you look to the positive responses for what you are doing right and then keep on doing it. Also, don’t forget to look to your negative responses to find out what you’re doing wrong and then make sure you fix it. These actions completed regularly will enable you to keep growing and progressing to meet the needs of your customers and the ever-changing business climate.

3. Orchestration

Once you’ve had a chance to find what areas are working, you can narrow down those areas. So you can concentrate on making them your stand-out ideas. As when you shift your focus here you will get the most out of your business and be regularly meet the changing needs of your customers.

If you are inspired to develop an innovation strategy in your future business, we can help you work through these three areas.  To get started and put together an action plan for your future business join us on our FREE Discovery Call.
