Secrets to following the plan to completion


What if I miss a live session?

All sessions will be recorded and links will be provided to all attendees. So don't worry about missing a session. You will still get the information!

Can I ask questions and get feedback during these sessions?

YES! Charles loves communicating with people and enjoys taking questions and listening to feedback from attendees. That's why he kept the group small (limited to 12 people), for the intimate interaction.

What about Refunds?

Refunds for these sessions are only available if a scheduled live session does not occur. In that case, Charles will offer attendees a choice of a partial refund (just for that missed session) or the option to attend a rescheduled session. Remember sessions are recorded and provided.

What happens if the 12 virtual seats are full?
