Take note, you will receive a seperate email with login details, but before logging in please read the following carefully.
While we are excited to get this in your hands today (the first of many milestones), we didn’t get as far as we wanted with the product for today’s deadline. This hasn’t quite met our initial goal for features and integrations.
Instead of delaying the release, we want to open it to you now so you can start using the content to shape your success journey, and start connecting and building your network of people who could help you advance your career.
In addition you are invited to start providing feedback and continue shaping the future of the product. But we’d like to do even more to make this up to you …
Our hope was to deliver a more advanced version of Chasing Excellence today. But since this isn’t available and the site is “not quite there,” we’re going to postpone the official start date of your first year’s Chasing Excellence subscription for a minimum of 3 months.
This means that even though you’re getting early access to Chasing Excellence today … it’s not counting towards your first paid year of Chasing Excellence (i.e., you won’t get billed for at least 3 months – and we’ll give you plenty of notice before a subscription is payable).
In short, use the site as much as you would like, at absolutely no cost to you. We’ll let you know when subscriptions will become payable, and you can decide how to proceed.
Your early-adopter access will entitle you to full use of the site for a minimum of 90 days….enjoy!
We could just wait until the site is 100% ready to go-live, but we know that you have a lot to gain from using the site in the interim. We also have a lot to gain from you using the site…
We also want to know who our supporters are and take the opportunity to reward them for their belief in us. When the site is officially launched, as an early-adopters you will be able to sign-up at a discounted membership rate that will never increase as long as you remain a member.
This is how we can thank you for believing in us from Day 1.
However, I can promise that there will be bumps along the way. The product is simple and raw, but also has the power to shape your personal and professional journey for years to come. We hope you’ll experience this along the way.
Standard membership for Chasing Excellence is R1140 payable annually in advance. As an early adopter, you will receive a minimum of 50% off this initial investment. In addition, your annual membership fee will never go above the standard R1140 per annum.
Anyone joining after the site is officially released will not receive the discount that you get and their annual membership renewals will subject to any increases applied.
So apart from the free early-adopter access and the massive discount on official launch, you will be saving every year for as long as you remain a member.
We’ve come a long way creating the back-end integration and systems for Chasing Excellence, as well as the front-end user portal. But our goal is to disrupt the leadership development space, so we’ve also got a long way to go.
Here’s what’s in store for us in the medium to long-term …
Online coaching and mentoring
Badges and rewards
Record for continuous professional development
Credit card integration
That said, a lot of the future work we do will be dependent on the feedback and requests you give us, so don’t hesitate to let us know about a great new feature or integration you think we’re missing!
If you’re like most people, you don’t invest in your success in just one way. Sure, you might read, listen to audio books, attend training courses and events … but you’re probably also having to spend additional time:
Attending networking events
Trying to figure out what areas of development you should be working on
Trying to find the right people to help you
And amidst all of this you’re still trying to balance your family and all of the other areas of your life, and you notice that balancing all of this gets difficult, very quickly.
That’s where Chasing Excellence comes in.
Chasing Excellence is the place to go to find out what areas you need to work on for personal, professional, team and even entrepreneurial excellence. In addition, content is especially sourced to guide your thinking and remove any blocks in these key areas. And if you don’t find the answers you’re looking for, you can ask the question and someone will offer you the help or guidance you need.
Your busy life also ensures that you don’t have the time to get out there and meet new people, or get out there and find like-minded people. Chasing Excellence offers you an area to do just this. Within groups, you are able to find and meet people who share your interests.
Connecting with like-minded individuals just got a whole lot easier.
You’ll receive access to Chasing Excellence soon. Watch your email.
The product isn’t where we want it to be yet, so as an additional bonus (on top of the free early-adopters access), we’ll give you a massive sign-up discount and your annual membership will be capped at the standard membership rate for as long as you remain a member.
We’ve got a lot of great things coming on the future roadmap, including various member-only offers.
We’ve already identified some great use cases for Chasing Excellence, but we know that we’re just scratching the surface.
Please let us know how you end up using it so we can share your ideas with the broader Chasing Excellence Early Adopter community.
We look forward to hearing your feedback!
