I went into my venture alone, but was pleasantly surprised at the community and the Brilliant Directories support team. The staff is super responsive and it truly feels like they are rooting for us. On top of this, there are great discussions and support within the Facebook group, where I manage to learn something new from other membership website owners every day. It's an amazing and continuously evolving product and I'm happy to be a part of it!
