This program is for DOERS. If you are not willing to take action, don’t enroll. If you are really serious about getting the funds you need, here are few tips: Make this program work for you, take the course, do the exercises, ask questions, and participate.
If you’re not 100% thrilled with this program you can ask for your money back. Just e-mail us to request a refund. You do need to take the course first, that’s the only condition. If you are not ready, wait. Some things take time. I always say that you can’t take 9 women and a month and make a baby, you get it:-)
