Hi there, new member! So darn STOKED to have you here. Welcome to the community of the COOLEST do-good, purpose filled creative ladies in the WORLD. Seriously.
This hefty page has everything you need to know about your The Yellow Collective membership. Our goal with this is to help you feel empowered and ready to get the most out of the Collective and all the goodness it has to offer! We encourage you to read through the entire thing, although it might seem like a lot, it's all to help set you up for success within this community!
To make SURE you read all the way through... there's a special bonus perk at the bottom of this list, don't miss it- and don't cheat!
Ready for this? Let's go!
1. The Empowerment Box
If you click the little profile icon on the top right of this page, you'll be able to see all of your account details. You'll be able to update your billing info, shipping address and see which shipments are on their way and which have been delivered.
We mail out the boxes the first month of every quarter, so be on the lookout throughout the end of that first month!
**A FEW THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR:
• Read the book by the end of the quarter: In our boxes we include a book that is meant to be read by you throughout the quarter. You'll be talking through the book in your local or digital chapter gatherings, so be sure to read it by the end of the quarter!
• The Encouragement Pal Postcard: We also include a postcard that is addressed to another member of The Yellow Collective. Your job is to fill that out, offer a word of encouragement, send it off and if everyone plays their cards right, everyone should receive a postcard written to them by another member! So be sure to keep that in mind!
• The Yellow Collective Booklet: We've included a brand new YC booklet in the boxes! Each article is written about or by another member, highlighting their achievements and successes from the quarter before. Who knows, we may even feature YOU in the future!
2. The Digital Resources
This website is where you'll find all of the digital resources to keep you learning and entertained for DAYS. Literally, there's like 5 days worth of content :)
Scroll up to the "MEMBERS" menu item in the top right hand corner, and you'll see the member features pop up. Here are a few highlights to get you started:
We have a blast interviewing do-good entrepreneurs who are making an impact on the world. We talk about everything from how to make money to business failures to work life balance. They are live and allow you to interact with our speaker and ask questions in real time.
The webcasts are all recorded, if you miss one, you'll be able to watch it later!
We keep our video recordings from past webcasts here, as well as a variety of PDF downloads to help you throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
Every quarter we create content for our boxes and community gatherings revolving around a theme. We create a workbook revolving around the theme as well. It's to help you truly embrace our theme and elevate yourself mentally and within your business this quarter.
3. The Community
The Community is a really awesome aspect to the membership. To help you best connect with the members in our community, here are some places to get started:
This has website, business and social media info for our Yellow Collective members who have chosen to participate. If you'd like to be added to the directory, please email Rachel@yellowco.co and she'll help you out!
This is a great place to go when looking for vendors, freelancers, or a few good blogs to read. Supporting do-good, purposeful creatives is what we're about! Def check out the rad ladies apart of this group.
Every quarter we come together as members under a “Community Challenge” where commit together to doing one thing to help us grow as a community and as people throughout the quarter. Click here to see what we have in store for you this quarter!
We love chatting and connecting with our members on Facebook. Request to join, and as soon as we're able to verify that you're a member we will approve you! Take advantage of chatting with the wonderful ladies on there.
Every week we host Slack Chats where our members can chat for an hour surrounding questions and a theme. They are lead by our Chapter leaders as well as team members. The first Slack Chat is always really full- but as the quarter goes on, they tend to be less intense, so make sure to join us there!
You should have received an invitation to Slack in your inbox. Make sure to check your spam if you don't see it!
Feel free to chat at any time of day on our Slack channel as well. Some of our members prefer Slack to Facebook to connect with members, either one works!
We are building more and more chapters in different areas, but currently have a limited amount of local in person gatherings. Our Digital Chapter is an awesome alternative though! Don't be shy!
If you'd like to sign up to get updates from your Collective chapter leader or digital leader if you're not near a local gathering spot, click here to view our current chapters and hop on an email list!
We also have our chapter leaders post events on Facebook for all of their gatherings, so that way if you're traveling to an area with a gathering, you can pop in and meet other members in other cities :)
