Earnings Disclaimer

When addressing financial matters in any of our websites, videos, newsletters, programs or other content, we’ve taken every effort to ensure that we accurately represent our programs and their ability to grow your business and improve your life. However, by participating in our trainings and programs, you accept and agree that you are fully responsible for your progress and results from your participation. We offer no representations, warranties or guarantees verbally or in writing that you will get any results or earn any money using any of our ideas, tools, models, strategies or recommendations. You alone are responsible for your actions and results in life and business, which are dependent on personal factors including your background, skill, knowledge, ability, motivation, dedication, business savvy, network and financial situation, to name a few. Because these factors differ according to individuals, the results experienced by each person may vary significantly and we cannot and do not guarantee your success, income level, or ability to earn revenue.

We offer no professional legal, medical, psychological or financial advice and your participation in this program will not treat, diagnose or cure any disease.

General Sales Purchase Policy

As we hold a number of special offers at various times, we must adhere to our policy that products and program prices, sales, special discounts, free trials, and the like are valid only for the dates and deadlines upon which they are offered, so they are not valid on previous or future purchases. Also any promo, coupon or discount codes must be used at the time of purchase, at the checkout page in our shopping cart, and they are not valid on previous or future purchases. We don’t make exceptions to this policy as it would not be fair practice to do so.

Physical and Digital Products

Please note the guarantees and payment terms on the sales or shopping cart purchase page for each individual product.

Telephone-Web-based Teaching, Mentoring and Coaching Programs

Please note the guarantees and payment terms on the sales page or shopping cart purchase page for each program.

Payment Policies

If you choose a payment plan to pay for your program, you agree to pay the registration fee in full as per terms of that payment plan as listed on the registration page for the program.

If you choose a payment plan to pay for your registration, and your credit or debit card is declined for any reason for any of the payments, you will immediately use another form of payment upon notification of the decline, or you will forfeit your placement in the program until payment is made.

If you choose to remove or cancel yourself from a program prior to the end of the program dates, you understand that refunds will not be issued, and if you’ve chosen to pay your registration fee via a payment plan, that you are still responsible for paying your balance in full. If you have an outstanding balance or late fees due on any payment plan or subscription account, you hereby agree that we may charge these unpaid fees to your credit card. Various products or programs may offer a Satisfaction Guarantee – if you are unsatisfied, please contact my team for further details.

Other

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by COMPANY infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to COMPANY a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon COMPANY actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to COMPANY a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. COMPANY’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached by contacting us.
