Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consider Ideas-Shared?

Ideas-Shared is a brand new idea-sharing solution for people globally, that is designed to go beyond simply the posting of an idea, or where the focus usually is upon business ideas. Our mission is simple, and that is to help as many people as possible showcase their wants and needs, to give our members the ability to ask for help, and get help, to believe that anything is possible, to feel fulfilled, and happy, to bring like-minded people together to architect and achieve specific outcomes, to provide a repeatable process that can be used to convert ideas and thought into value and benefit, all within an environment that fosters clarity of mind, hope, and which enables personal, social, environmental, political, and business change and improvement to occur for mutual benefit. That’s why we’re asking everyone to join us. You see, at the end of the day, Ideas-Shared isn’t just another ideas site, it’s a global club for all the people of the world who want to help and make that difference.

How can Ideas-Shared be so affordable?

We created Ideas-Shared to be a global solution that can add value to the lives of every person in every country of the world, depending on their needs and wants. As such we have scaled Ideas-Shared to be priced as competitively as possible and to be affordable for as many people, some of whom will be able to talk and support those who can barely afford to live, let alone participate on our site. Choosing to not have advertising on our site, means that we do need to charge a nominal amount for access, as well as look to obtain Grants or Donations in the interim to keep us going, that is until we are able to scale sufficiently enough from subscription revenue.

Will Ideas-Shared work for me?

Ideas-Shared is a platform to facilitate change and improvement. The process we use is comprehensive and will work subject to the type of activity, response, discipline, effort, and skill employed by all members involved. In life, there are no guarantees, no one can predict the future or what will happen to us. We aim to provide comprehensive information to help you identify and pursue personal, social, environmental, political, and business outcomes with the people you know and those you’ve yet to meet. Such activity can be local or global, it can affect segments of the population, individuals only, or entire countries… maybe even the entire world, therefore each activity posted and managed using Ideas-Shared will have different circumstances that require different amounts of help, and leverage; and each will have vastly different outcome objectives, value, and benefit.

How long does it take to get results?

The time it takes to achieve specific desired outcomes, value, and benefit will be determined by the scale of the activity, the urgency, popularity, and leverage obtained, as well as the skill, experience, attitude, discipline of our members as they follow our 12-Step process. Results can be fairly instantaneous or they may take, days, weeks, or months to achieve.
