* Our Co-Founder, Rey Carr, explains why we have ended our web presence
More than 40 years ago, when we switched to become an online resource, we were virtually alone as a provider of information, service and resources in the coaching, mentoring and peer assistance fields. Since that time literally thousands of other organizations have copied, duplicated, or initiated similar services and products. We’re delighted with the role we played as an uncredited catalyst, and we are assured that there are now many quality resources achieving the highest standards in coaching, mentoring, and peer support. We never saw the rise of others as competitors, and instead extended a supportive and cooperative hand to all who came after us. The quality and extent of mentoring, coaching and peer support online led us to conclude that we no longer needed to continue our unique business model of commercial- and advertising-free resources, research, support, and services. As a non-profit corporation, we found we could no longer sustain the expense of continuing to develop and maintain our extensive web presence. We are grateful to the 56+ million web visitors who have accessed our site; we are grateful to all those who became members of our Peer Resources Network over the years; and we are grateful to all those who purchased our training workshops, publications, and consultation services. It’s been an exceptionally rewarding endeavour with no regrets.
