Should you need to reach me between appointments, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or download Marco Polo and connect with me. Our appointments can be by phone or by online meeting through zoom. You may request your preferred method of connection for your scheduled appointments.
3.2 Rescheduling: If you need to reschedule an appointment, you need to do so at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled time by sending an e-mail to me or changing the appointment through my online calendar.
3.3 Cancellation: Our time together is important. If you need to cancel your appointment, you need to do so <u>at least 48 hours</u> in advance of your scheduled time by sending an e-mail to me. If you do not contact me at least 48 hours in advance, this will be considered a missed appointment.
3.4 Missed Appointment: There can be a rare occasion where you miss your appointment altogether or you forget to let me know at least 48 hours in advance that you need to cancel or reschedule, so you are allowed 1 “Get Out of Jail Free” when you've missed an appointment.
4.1 Fee: You agree that you are financially willing and able to pay for this Program by choice and that by so doing, you are not incurring any economic hardship in any way.
If paying in full, your investment is $9500 and must be made upon enrollment in the Program.
If paying in installments, monthly payments in the amount of $850 will be due in 1-month increments from the date of the first payment for 12 months.
4.2 Payment Authorization and Receipt: If paying by PayPal, debit card, or credit card, you give us permission to automatically charge your credit card or debit card as payment for your Program without any additional authorization, and you will receive an electronic receipt. If I choose to provide you with a Paypal invoice instead, you are required to manually pay it by the date due on the invoice or your Program will be put on hold until payment is made.
4.3 Missed Payment: If payment is not received by the date due or there is a problem with the payment transaction or method, you will be notified by e-mail and then have a 3 day grace period to make the payment following the due date, otherwise your Program will be put on hold. If no payment is made within the 3 day grace period, the Program will automatically terminate, the remainder of payments will be due and you will no longer be granted access.
4.4 Refund Policy: It is my intention for you to be happy with your Program. However, because I have invested considerable time and effort and investment in the retreat in your Program if you decide to withdraw at any time for any reason, you are still fully responsible for making all Program payments according to payment terms, and no refunds will be provided.
5.1 Confidentiality is important to me. I will keep all information exchanged between us during the Program confidential.
