Contacting Me: I try to be highly responsive to my clients. Should you need to reach me between coaching calls, please contact me between 8:00am – 8:00pm by e-mail at [email protected]. I am not generally accessible by phone outside of our regularly scheduled coaching calls. I will do my best to respond to you by e-mail within 12 hours (usually sooner) Monday through Friday. I will do my best to get back to you within 12 hours after a weekend or holiday. Please note that should you have a question regarding scheduling of your VIP Intensive, coaching calls, payments, or policies, please contact [email protected] and me or my assistant will handle your request. In the case of an emergency and you need to contact me immediately, please text me at 206-245-8142.
Scheduling: It is recommended that you schedule your coaching calls to reoccur at the same day and time during the week when both our schedules allow. It is your responsibility to schedule your coaching calls through this link or my assistant at [email protected]. You will be responsible for initiating all of our coaching calls by calling me at 206-245-8142. Please come prepared to start and end the VIP Intensive and coaching calls on time. Your first coaching call must be scheduled within 30 days after enrollment (but preferably right away.) The VIP Intensive sessions (Vision/Values and Goal Setting) should be scheduled during the first month of your Program. All of your coaching calls, in addition to the VIP Intensive, should be completed within 6 months after your first scheduled coaching call.
Cancellation and Rescheduling: Showing up for your VIP Intensive and coaching calls is very important. It shows commitment to yourself and the work we are doing together. It also shows respect for both your own time and mine. I have a very firm cancellation policy. If you need to cancel the VIP Intensive or any coaching call for any reason, please do so at least 24 hours in advance (although 48 hours is preferred) in order to avoid having to forfeit your call.
To reschedule a call, please use the scheduling system where you booked your calls, or email [email protected] if it is within 24 hours. If you cancel or need to reschedule your VIP Intensive, it must be rescheduled before the completion of your program or will be forfeited. If you need to cancel or reschedule a coaching call without providing at least 24 hours advance notice, it will be considered forfeited and there will be no opportunity to reschedule it. If a true emergency occurs, please e-mail us immediately. I will determine whether the VIP Intensive or a coaching call may be rescheduled.
Investment and Payment
Payment in Full: Your program begins upon enrollment once payment has been received. Payments are non-refundable. You agree that you are financially willing and able to invest in this program by choice, and by doing so you are not in any way incurring economic hardship. Should you have any questions about billing or payments, please contact us at [email protected].
No refund Policy: I want you to be thrilled with your coaching program. If for some reason you are not satisfied and wish to stop the program at any time, you still will remain fully responsible for the full cost of the program, and no refund will be provided. I will have invested considerable time and effort in your program, and if you decide to withdraw for any reason whatsoever, that time and effort has still been made. The coaching process can be challenging and this policy is meant to hold you to a high standard and to support you in getting all you want to out of working with me. It is part of my holding a high bar for your success and follow through.
I will keep all information exchanged during the program in strict confidentiality. I will not disclose confidential information that you share with me during the program to anyone else without reason to know such information, except as when required by law, ethics, or upon written authorization by you.
Disclaimer: I explicitly state that my role is to support and assist you in reaching your goals, but your success depends primarily on your own effort, motivation, commitment and follow-through. I cannot and do not guarantee that you will attain a particular result or income increase or level, and you accept and understand that results differ by each individual. Each individual’s personal and business success depends on his or her background, dedication, desire, and motivation, and a whole host of additional factors. As with any financial or business-related program or service that you purchase, your results may vary, and will be based on many variables, so therefore no guarantees can be made. Any results, earnings, income statements or examples are only estimates of what is possible for you. There can be no assurance as to any particular results or financial outcome based on the use of our program. You agree that I am not responsible for the success or failure of your personal or business decisions, the increase or decrease of your finances or income level, or any other result of any kind that you may have as a result of information presented to you through the program. You are solely responsible for your results.
