Frequently Asked Questions
As long time community organizers and early social network advocates, we felt that there had to be a better way to build a supportive community for passionate professionals. Looking at the options out there, we found a lot of inspiration, but nothing quite like what we had in mind.
So we started working on reinventing the "Guild" model, leveraging our work on modernizing Associations over the last decade plus and moving beyond simple social networks. We landed on professional development network as a descriptive way to describe what we do.
Holding a safe space where people can learn, grow, and prosper together. With a greater emphasis on self-directed personal development, supported by a community of others also committed to the same pursuit of mastery. A mix of curricula, group coaching, live events, members only content, and conversations with peers is where we begin today.
In short, we believe that everyone deserves to get paid.
While there are some excellent free content sites and communities available, they are often in support of the sale of another product/service. It's totally cool that this is the case, but we wanted to provide a different sort of experience. We want to make something that is sustainable, that grows with members, and that provides real value day in and day out.
So instead of giving away snack sized bites of free advice and observations, we chose to give away as much as we can by charging a relatively small fee. We also realized that we can bundle together live events, group coaching and other methods of getting solutions to help you grow in such a way that the membership cost would be lower than the total value of the benefits and services we provide.
In short, it's just another, simpler and transparent way to accomplish our mission. We invite people who share our values, our desire for professional growth, and our passion for making remote work for everyone to go beyond vocal support, and to provide financial support in exchange for much greater value than you pay each month or each year.
RemoteReady is the name of our training program that is under development. We have formed the RemoteReady Council to work with organizations to research the best practices, standards and policies for leading remote/distributed organizations. With these leaders, and others from within our network, we will also be creating training that improves the collaborative productivity of remote workers and remote team leaders.
We are working on building the program as an accredited certification so that individuals may distinguish themselves from others as trustworthy and capable remote contributors and leaders in the same way that companies might show they are great remote work places.
If you have any questions or interest in working together, please reach out to us through this simple form.
In addition to growing our professional development network, we are building out the RemoteReady Council and expanding our partner network for offering relevant discounts to our members.
