THE AUTHOR'S WAY CONTRACT AGREEMENT 2021-2023 (and as amended by ADMIN)
Mentoring Specifications as stated and Agreed to upon Enrollment forthwith-
Part A: Specific to this program-
This program’s tuition is $250.00 for a minimum of 12 months (US) and is non-refundable once work begins. “Work Begins” when you are admitted to The Course and have been sent an invitation to your Book-Build Blueprint Google Doc. The monthly payment option is available as a courtesy for you, but the full $3,000.00 tuition is due independent of your continued participation or lack of participation.
WE MEET: Most Wednesdays at 10:00 am Pacific Time! (Holidays and Indy Days excepted!)
REGULAR BREAKS: The Class Structure is three weeks on one week off each month. Use the “off week” to catch up, go deep, or rest and rejuvenate.
COURSE WORK TIME: I plan about nine months of coursework service. Those nine months’ work is distributed across 12 calendar months. In other words, throughout the year, we will break for holidays and personal project time, or rejuvenation, etc.
RECORDINGS: To the degree possible (at the mercy of technology and The Gods, etc.) I will provide access to the recorded sessions for you. You may download but not distribute those sessions for as long as you are enrolled in the program.
Due to the creative sensitivities and secure nature of your group, there is no way to “put your program on hold.” and resume “later” beyond simply rejoining the group wherever they are in the process.
This program’s duration is about 12 months from the date you joined the program (but you may continue month to month after that. You will have access to the program and the container for the paid period only (as long as you are paying or paid in full.)
Your Mentor will share cutting-edge proprietary methods and suggest actions to support your efforts. Remember, your results and desired outcomes are a result of your own choices and actions.
Make time to read these terms, please! You’ll get way more out of your coaching session and, we must be on the same page when working together as Writer’s Gift Mentor (me) and ClientWriter (you)!
All purchases and payments are final and non-refundable once work begins. ADDITIONALLY, all purchases and charges are final and non-refundable after the standard contract period allowed by law, as specified in the General Terms.
Your Holistic Book Coach and Writing Mentor will not divulge that you are in a coaching or mentoring relationship without your express consent. Of course, you are free to discuss the coaching/mentoring relationship with anyone at any time.
All Mentoring Sessions are scheduled in advance by direct agreement between you and your Writer’s Gift Mentor. If for any reason you cannot attend a planned Mentoring or any scheduled Session, you are fully responsible for informing your Mentor and rescheduling your appointment at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise, the session will be deemed completed. If you are LATE for a scheduled session, the session will still end on time, out of courtesy to the next Writer. REMEMBER: You are responsible for rescheduling via phone, text, or contact (and receiving acknowledgment or a reply from the Coach!) via email.
Practices are assigned to assist in accelerating your growth and the achievement of your desired results.
FREE EXTRA TIME
Please use the Facebook Group Page to discuss an issue or concern or share something great! Your Coach provides this additional service to give you superior value and results.
The Mentoring Sessions and Any Additional Sessions must be scheduled and completed within the agreed period) If a ClientWriter chooses not to meet for a month or more, or the ClientWriter ceases to participate, ClientWriter is still liable for paying the monthly payments.
