Yes, if you have completed all the assignments and have taken all the actions provided (proof will be asked for) and still within a year do not book a paid speaking gig. We will be happy to return your money in full. This is not a get rich quick scheme; however, if you follow the steps diligently and consistently, you will see the results.

We have never had anyone ask for a refund because we know the program works if you work it. For some, people there are subconscious limiting beliefs that may block you if so I recommend the VIP option because 1-1 coaching sessions with Deborah will clear you from the issues that are under the surface.
