IMPORTANT RULES & BOUNDARIES WITHIN THE UPSIDE
To keep this a community you WANT to return to regularly, we maintain and enforce a set of rules for all
members of The Upside.
This means courses, books, memberships, events, etc. If you have something that you’re working on and would like to share with the group because you think it is 100% relevant, send us an email first and we will come up with a win/win way.
Sharing #wins is encouraged, especially as a source of motivation for all. But if we feel you are posting to promote yourself, your clients, your event or your services, then we will remove the post immediately.
Being part of The Upside requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group must stay in the group.
The Upside is accepting and inclusive of all members, regardless of their political POVs. Please refrain from posting anything political in nature.
If a friend has a business question, encourage them to join The Upside. Please do not post asks or help for a friend. All asks and resources are for members only.
Members of our community thrive on the sharing of resources, best practices and information. What goes around comes around. The more you engage, the more you will get in return.
Our community is one of generous gives and gets. Therefore, when you receive help from an Upside member, respect their time and thank them for their efforts in whatever way you can. Consider asking, “What can I do to help YOU? What can I give you in return for your help?”
What is shared in this group, including documents, videos, guides and files, is to always stay within the group. Do not share our resources with non-members.
If you consider something to be your intellectual property, do not share it in the group. Any advice, documents, frameworks, etc. shared in the group cannot be claimed as your own IP.
The Upside has members who span several identifies, including women, men and non-binary. Please use inclusive language inside The Upside and avoid phrases like, “Thanks ladies!”
Plus, if it’s something your VA would post, then it probably doesn’t belong in The Upside.
If you use a CRM like Hubspot that’s set to automatically add people to your list, please turn it off. If you have a calendar Zap that automatically adds people to your list, please schedule meetups with Upsiders using a different method so that they don’t get automatically added to your newsletters.
In general, even beyond The Upside, we believe this is best practice when building your email list.
DO NOT TAG UPSIDE MEMBERS IN YOUR LINKEDIN POSTS
Unless you know the members personally AND the post is 100% relevant to them, tagging Upside members in a post could be negatively-received, is against our values and best practices, and is not allowed.
