My Money-Back Guarantees

I’m so confident you’ll feel your purchase has been a wise investment that I am offering these money-back guarantees.

Gold/High Impact and Silver/Rank Booster Packages:
If after the initial coaching session you are not completely satisfied, I will fully refund your money and all the resources will be yours to keep. No questions asked. You may request your refund within 48 hours of the session.

Bronze/T125 Fundamentals Package:
If you purchase the Bronze level package and are not satisfied for any reason, just ask for a full refund, no questions asked, and keep the resources. This guarantee is good for one full year.

I don’t guarantee that any of my packages will improve your Training Top 125 ranking. Any number of factors will impact your final standing, including the relative strength of other applicants and, of course, whether you have the right stuff. BUT, these offerings are packed with solid advice and insights that should serve you well, not just for Training Top 125 but for other awards, too.
