Should I become a member and if so, in which of the four membership plans should I enrol?

I am commencing these membership plans at the start of September 2020. As the number of members grow, the value of belonging to the various plans increases.

Just below, you will find a summary of the four plans (as well as the fifth "non-plan"). This summary includes the benefits as well as the cost to you. Two of the plans are free. The other two have a recurring monthly or yearly subscription, with a very straightforward cancellation if you are not happy at any point. 

Underneath the summary of the plans, you will a much more detailed explanation of each of the benefits in detail.  

Because I am at the very beginning of the journey (September 2020), I have kept the costs of the two paid plans as low as I could. In addition to their benefits, they also offer you significant discounts on all of my services. 

The paid membership called the Ancient Wisdom Plan is simply a service payment for the daily doses of wisdom you will receive as well as the discounts you can apply on all my services.  


The Creators Plan is quite different. This year's entry price is kept low in comparison to all of the benefits you receive access to a growing collaboration as well as significant discounts on all of my services). 
 

  • Throughout the time span of your Creators Plan membership, you will only ever be asked to pay the membership price with which you entered.  You will also be entitled to the discounts you were offered at the beginning of your membership. 
     

  • WIth the network effects of more and more people coming into our community, the value of your membershipwill continuously increase while your entry costs remain stable. This is through the increasing followership base that we can all access working together and learning the art of social networking as we keep expanding
     

  • People joining later will pay a higher entry price but will have access to a much wider audience than the early entry members have currently (in September 2020, this audience is zero.  My intention is that this audience will increase as fast as: 

    • The global attraction to our content does and​

    • The more skilled we become at social marketing 

 

If you have faith that we can grow this community together, I hope that provides you with the incentive to join the Creators Plan as an early explorer.   

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The costs of being an Individual or Community Member is $0, but the Individual Membership has more privacy whilst the Community Membership has much more collaboration. The "value" of the Community Membership only grows as the community grows and is willing to share ideas. 
 

The cost of the Ancient Wisdom Plan reflects the fact that you receive daily doses of ancient wisdom and awareness exercises -- and a 15% discount on all of my services. This plan is currently $20 a month or $
 

The cost of the Creators Plan reflects that you access a collaboration with other members that includes being able to post your creations on my website, being able to use my platform to host events, courses and services, and most importantly join this collaboration to grow each of our global followership through a mutually reinforcing expanding spiral via YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  As we do this, we will work together to educate ourselves how this new world of collaboration across social media is working.  We will learn together from various experts in the field, sharing the cost of their training.  This plan also provides a
