Refund & Return Policy

No refunds are allowed once the call is booked.

If you can’t make it, you can always reschedule but you can only do this once.

If you try to reschedule more than once, I will cancel and you will have to pay for another call.

I will wait on the call for 5 minutes before dropping off the call.

If you think you’ll be late by more than 5 minutes, just let me know and I’ll wait longer but we still may have to end on time.

Once I drop off the call, no rescheduling is allowed.
