Explore Possibility... Without Costly Mistakes

Sometimes the hardest part is knowing whether to start.

In my line of work, I talk to a lot of people who are ‘kinda sorta just thinking about maybe starting a membership'.

Perhaps that's you?  … contemplating the creation of:

an association for your industry
a club for your favorite hobby
a members-only program for your best clients
a paid subscription for your blog readers
a donors circle for your nonprofit


      you've been sitting on the fence
      had moments of self-doubt
     or simply aren't sure what's involved

If you don't want to spend a lot of time, energy and money working on something that you're not entirely sure about, THIS is the workshop for you.

“I am not tech-savvy and had no idea where to start, what to charge, which membership site would work best for me and how to make sure that it was easy to use and accessible. Luckily I found Joy!  She answered all of my questions thoroughly. Her attention to detail was remarkable and much appreciated.

“I thought a membership programme would be way too difficult for me, certainly not a thing for me. But right from the beginning, Joy introduced the subject in such a clear and easy to follow manner that she had my attention.  She addressed all the important stuff. It helped me a great deal to see that this was actually going to be do-able.”

Know What You're Getting Into – WITHOUT Wasting a TON of Time and Money.

If you're contemplating membership, you probably have a lot of questions rolling around in your head that need to be answered BEFORE you even commit to the launch process.  THAT is what I focus on in this workshop… the stuff that I'd want to know if I were thinking about starting something new.


Part One:  Types of Memberships

What does building a membership around what you do even look like? 

Would a membership even help you create the kind of impact you want?

Part Two: Technology Options & Cost

What kind of technology will you actually need to master in order to successfully pull off a membership?

And how much is all of this technology stuff actually going to cost me?

Part Three: Getting People to Join

How can we be sure that people are actually going to be interested and join? 

Is there a way to know that before investing too much time and money?

Part Four:  The Launch Process

Finally, I'll share what typically has to go into a launch so that you'll know what sorts of things will need to be addressed.

100% Open to You NOW… No Annoying Drip… No Need to Wait for a Random Launch Date.

This workshop is available ONLINE right now… in its entirety… and is COMPLETELY accessible immediately after you register.

There is no need to travel, no need to block out dates, no need to wait for information to be dripped out to you.

If you watched all the videos in one sitting, it would take about 90 minutes. 

However, these are split into 8 separate modules, so you can easily do the workshop in pieces if that is better suited for you.

In addition to the videos, you also receive:

  • copies of the PowerPoint Slides with space for taking notes;
  • a printable 10-page Participant Guide that helps you apply concepts to your situation; and
  • a Transcript for each of the modules, in case you prefer to read instead of watch videos.


By The End, You'll Be Able to Choose a Path Forward with Total Confidence.

There is just ONE aim for this workshop… to help YOU decide if membership is worth pursuing.

BUT on your way to that outcome, you will also find that you have:

  • a better understanding of membership as a business model and what it can do for a business, nonprofit or passion project; 
  • less anxiety around common ‘stuck points' like technology and how you'll get people to join; and
  • more clarity around what it will actually take to get up and running.

By the time you reach the end of this workshop, you'll feel either completely inspired – or you'll know definitively that this is not a path you wish to travel.  

Both of those perspectives are equally valuable.

IF you decide membership IS right for you… you will have MANY insights  and shortcuts to make the launch process easier. Plus, you'll know where the common pitfalls are, too, so you can avoid those altogether.

IF you decide membership IS NOT right… you'll be able to say with confidence that you've ruled out this option and you can move forward with a different plan for your future. 

DON'T Sign Up IF…

#1  – You ALREADY know you're going to do a membership.  This is NOT a Launch Course, so don't sign up if that's what you're looking for.

If you ALREADY know that a membership IS the right next step, then you should SKIP this workshop and go straight into actual launch planning.  Get on my calendar and I can fill you in on group or individual options that would be a better fit.

#2 – You're not REALLY serious about membership as an option at all.  If you know there's ZERO chance you will ever do membership, don't sign up.

This workshop is perfect for people who are seriously contemplating the opportunity, but want to fully vet it and know what they are getting into first.  There's no sales pitch inside the workshop for membership.  There's no big program on the back-end that I'm going to try to convince you to buy.  This workshop is about putting information into your hands to help you make the best decision for you.

Priced to be VERY Accessible, Even If You Are Just Starting Out.

Because this workshop is intentionally designed for people who are ‘contemplating' membership and aren't entirely sure that this is the right strategy for them, I intentionally wanted this to be the most accessible training I've ever released.

I wanted people to finish this workshop and say, “Wow!  That's the BEST $– I ever spent because now I KNOW where to go with this membership idea and I don't have to spend ANY more time or money waiting or trying to figure out what to do first”.

So, I set the price at an extremely affordable $75.  

Here in the Midwest, that's the equivalent of a nice dinner out.  You'd spend that on a couple of sessions with a personal trainer, a massage or someone to clean your house.

People who are seriously contemplating membership, as a community-gathering or revenue-generating option, should find that very reasonable, even if they haven't generated any revenue at all yet from their idea. 

You may have been burned with previous online purchases.
I've also bought programs and memberships that didn't live up to the hype.

That's why I offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If you don't believe that this workshop has helped you make a decision about membership (which is what it is TOTALLY designed to do) then you shouldn't pay.  Just shoot me an email to let me know and I will promptly refund your payment.

No need to explain. No run around or hassle.

That's the way I would want it to work, if I were buying something like this. So that's what you get, too.
