    Scheduling and Timing

    Contacting Me:  Being accessible and attentive to my clients is a priority.  If you need to reach me between Coaching Sessions, please contact me between 9:00am-8:00pm ET Mondays through Fridays via e-mail at info@laurenisjoy.com.  I will do my best to respond to you within 24 hours Mondays through Fridays. On weekends and holidays, I will reply to you within 48 hours or the next business day. 

    Please note that e-mails are for general inquiries and quick questions pertaining to your Program and you will receive laser e-mail responses.  If you need to discuss something at length, I may request that we have an in-depth conversation during your next Coaching Session.  

    Scheduling Coaching Sessions:  You will receive the link to schedule your Coaching Sessions through Time Trade. Please pick a set time and day each week and schedule all of your Coaching Sessions when you receive the link. I will send you a confirmation email with details of each Coaching Session.  It is your responsibility to initiate each Coaching Session via phone or Skype.  Please be prepared to start and end each Coaching Session on time.  

    Cancellation or Rescheduling:  If you need to cancel or reschedule a Coaching Session for any reason, you must do so at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled session.  Please use the Acuity system to cancel and reschedule another available time. If less than 24 hours notice is provided, you must cancel through Acuity and send an e-mail to info@laurenisjoy.com.  Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice are forfeited without the opportunity to reschedule.

     

    Investment and Payment


    Payment:   
    One-time Payment in full:  The investment is $97 and must be made upon enrollment in the Program.  

    Installment Payments: Two (2) bi-weekly payments of $50  totaling $100.  The first payment must be made upon enrollment. 

    You agree that you are financially willing and able to invest in this Program by choice, and by so doing, you are not in any way incurring any economic hardship.

    Authorization and Receipt:  If paying by PayPal, debit card, or credit card, you give us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card as payment for your Program without additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt.  If you are paying via a PayPal invoice, you must pay the amount due or your Program will be put on hold until payment is made.

    Missed Payment:  If payment is not received by the date due or there is a problem with the payment transaction or method, you will be notified by e-mail and have a 3 day grace period to make the payment following the due date.  During this time, the Program will be put on hold and no Coaching Sessions will be held, including during the grace period. If no payment is made within the 3 day grace period, the Program will automatically terminate and you will forfeit any remaining Coaching Sessions and Program access. However, any remaining payments are still due. Payments must be received at least 24 hours prior to a scheduled Coaching Session, otherwise the Coaching Session is cancelled and cannot be made up until payment resumes.

    Refund Policy:  I want you to be happy with your Program. If for some reason you are not satisfied you may stop the Program at any time, whether or not you have held all of your Coaching Sessions.  Because we will have invested considerable time and effort in your Program, if you decide to withdraw for any reason, you will remain fully responsible for all payments and the full cost of the Program.  No refund will be provided.

    All information exchanged during the Program will be kept strictly confidential. I will not disclose confidential information that you share with me during the Program to anyone else without reason to know such information, unless required by law, ethics, or upon written authorization by you.
