We have zero tolerance to those who are mean and you will be removed immediately. This is a safe and non-judgmental space.

NO BULLYING OR HATE SPEECH: Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things such as race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.

RESPECT EVERYONE’S PRIVACY: Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.

BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT: Community is at the core of everything we stand for our Found & Flourish so please try to join in the conversation when and where you can.

LIMIT YOUR PROMOTIONAL CONTENT: So that we can protect the integrity of the group, we have a limit on promotional posts and provide a variety of tools to support your business such as the ‘Weekly Wins’ and ‘What I’ve been working on’ threads. Please use these opportunities to promote your business.

GIVE MORE THAN YOU TAKE: Always ask for help, that's what this community is here for! But please also give back willingly. The success of this space relies on members giving to each other as much they take (if not more!)

CONSIDER BEFORE YOU POST: We love you being active in the community, we love to see what you're up to and we love even more when you tap into the community when you're in a time of need. It's all here for you and we ask in return, that you respect the time and attention of your other community members. So before you post, think 'What is the purpose of this post? What do I want to get out of this? Does this invite others to respond? Am I being clear about what I need? If I am asking for something, can I offer something in return?' If need be, we do possess the right to refuse to post, remove or edit any of the material you post if they are in breach of our Terms and Conditions. If you're unsure, please feel free to check with us.

Please refrain from cold-emailing or pitching your services to fellow members.If members break these rules, it is at our own discretion to revoke membership or ban members. Although we don’t want to remove anyone from the group, we take any breaches very seriously as culture is everything in our community.
