[*Note: The Edge Membership changed its structure and membership fee effective April 1, 2018. The former "Principal Level" membership is no longer supported and all such memberships have lapsed. The only level of membership currently supported is simply called "The Edge," or sometimes, "The New Edge."
Q: Do I need a credit card to begin membership in The Edge?
A: Yes. You'll enter a credit card number when you apply for membership. When your membership is approved (generally within hours) your credit card will be charged $149 at that time, and every month thereafter for as long as you remain a member. If we are unable to accept your membership due to a direct competitor, the full $149 will be refunded immediately, although it may take a few days for the funds to show up in your account. We do offer a 90-day money-back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied, and you may cancel your membership at anytime from your own online portal, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 100% of your 90-day investment will be refunded.
Q: I was a Principal level member but let my membership lapse, or my credit card on file was declined. Now, I want to join again. What do I do?
A: You may simply click HERE to begin the application process. While we no longer support the Principal Level of membership, we have "grandfathered" former Principal level members of The Edge throughout 2018, meaning that your application to become a member of The "New Edge" is certain to be accepted.
Q: Can I be sure that my competitors will not also be members of The Edge?
A: We make every effort to ensure that all members of The Edge are comfortable sharing confidential information with all other members. We typically recruit only one member per major market, with the obvious exceptions of the largest cities where 2-3 members can easily coexist. We ask you to name a competitor or two that you would not be comfortable sharing information with, and we do everything we can to exclude them. However, we cannot guarantee such protections and your only recourse, should we later add a member you feel is a direct competitor, is to terminate your own membership.
Q: Is there a fee to attend the Annual Member Conference?
A: Yes. Those fees will be established in the summer each year, but given the members-only nature of the event, we keep our fees as low as possible. We will hold the annual event in November, subject to demand. No live event is guaranteed as part of your membership and your monthly dues do not not include this event.
Q: How do I update the credit card I have on file for my membership?
A: If you want to change an active credit card on file, log in with your username and password and then click on your name at the top right of the page. This will take you to your Profile page. Scroll down until you see the last 4 digits of your current credit card. Next to that will be the very small words, "Update Credit Card."
Q: What if my credit card was declined?
A: Regrettably, our system only retries your credit card over a period of two days. After that, your billing profile is cancelled, and to renew membership, you'll need to just start over as described above. Since no individual member data is stored on our site, there is nothing lost by starting a new membership.
Q: What if I'm interested in one-on-one coaching or consulting services?
A: David wants to get to know every member of The Edge, and thus offers complimentary phone calls to members to discuss these options, or merely to let you introduce yourself. To self-schedule a time, please click on the "Coaching" tab from the main menu. (Or click HERE.)
Q: What if I have any other questions?
A: Feel free to email us at any time at email@example.com. We try to respond within a few hours.
