The refund guarantee is designed to offer a refund to any instructor who genuinely and honestly believes that the information is not worth the fee paid and is therefore of no value to his/her business or personal development.

This guarantee is offered on the basis that a user feels and can demonstrate that the Member's Area is not worth the subscription fee. The refund can be claimed after six months membership subject to the following terms:
