Support to Grow
Opportunities to Connect and Learn
Constellation Stars benefit from exposure to potential clients seeking diverse service deliverers for hire. When our capacity to meet contract requests just isn't a fit for the client, we will always put forward an alternative contractor.
Constellation Stars have options for different levels of exclusive support in communications, templates, pricing structure, branding, speaking and presentation tactics, and upcoming events and opportunities.
We have a free plan and Financial Relief options.
Stars also have the opportunity to build their service delivery experience through our Community Services, which include free or donating-collecting workshops, webinars, and events. Supported Plan members have access to community circles in the Entrepreneurs Galaxy.
What is the difference between a Future Ancestors Services Team
Member and a Constellation Star?
Our Constellation Stars have a profile featured in our Constellation and are recognized as independent contractors; they are not employees of Future Ancestors Services. While we offer different levels of support to Constellation Stars in accessing paid opportunities, we do not play a mediatory role (unless issues are brought to us by a client or Star in regards to the Preliminary Phone Consultation). Applications are open year-round.
The Future Ancestors Services Team Members fulfill roles of either Sub-Contractors or Volunteer Coordinators. Our Sub-Contractors are assigned and complete contracts on behalf of Future Ancestors Services. Ten percent of all Future Ancestors Services contracts are invested back into our organization. Applications are accepted periodically, with postings being included in our newsletters and on our social media.
First, you can do a quick eligibility check to see if you meet the basic requirements for being a Constellation Star.
Make sure you can check off at least one box in each quad. Click the information button in the corner to understand why we require this from our Service Deliverers.
If you don't meet these requirements, there are still opportunities to volunteer as a Coordinator with Future Ancestors Services Team.
Next, you'll want to make sure that you
have the capacity to meet Constellation Star responsibilities.
The success of our Constellation largely depends on how our Constellation Stars conduct business with the clients that reach out to them through our portal. For this reason, we designate a few responsibilities that our Constellation Stars must meet in order to be featured.
Responds to Constellation Phone Consultations requests in two business days unless otherwise notified
