Q8. What happens if I want to cancel my membership before the first 12 months is up?

Membership in the Business and Beyond Club is for one year from date of signing up. You will have a 48 hour cooling off period … starting at the time of joining … during which to change your mind and provide written notice that you wish to cancel. After the cooling off period, there are no refunds or cancelations. Club membership is for serious entrepreneurs who are committed to stay the course.

Q9. Will I get any one-on-one coaching with Mari?

One of the main reasons Mari set up this club format was to allow more of her clients and students to access her at an affordable monthly rate. The Business and Beyond Club allows for a tremendous amount of guidance from Mari, in a group format. During the live Q&A sessions each month and the extensive Quarterly Power Masterclasses, you'll have plenty opportunity to ask Mari specific questions, get a chance to be in the hotseat, etc. Plus, Mari typically is very generous with her time in the Facebook Group and extended Q&A sessions.

Q10. How many members will be in the Club?
