The client and coach will meet in person or virtually at the agreed time.

The client agrees to provide feedback to the coach throughout the coaching process or at the end of the coaching process.

Payment is due 24 hours before meeting via the online payment method or another payment method agreed upon by the client and coach.

If you do not show up for your appointment at the agreed upon time, the coach will wait in the meeting location (in-person or virtually) for 10 minutes. If the client has not arrived by the 10 minute mark, the coach will leave the meeting location and the client will forfeit their payment, as aligned with the statement above.
