All too often we sign up for something, say yes and then life gets in the way. Our minds start making up all the excuses on why you shouldn’t/ can’t go. Guess what? I have been here too, many times. It is easier to say no, keep your head down, just keep going through the motions of life.
This will not get you to where you want to go! In the midst of the chaos when I have these thoughts, I just go. Because I have learned the power of stepping away and seeing clear again. I come back 100% more clear, productive and happy.
Because I of this, my refund policy goes like this: All your payments - including your initial deposit - are non- refundable.
I am borrowing the following from a friend and mentor, Susan Hyatt.
Beyoncé refund policy: All of your retreat payments — including your initial deposit — are non-refundable.
Beyoncé Refund Policy. Here’s why: When you buy a ticket to a Beyoncé concert, and then decide you don’t feel like going, or it’s too far to drive, or you can’t find a babysitter, or whatever… what happens? You don’t go. You stay home. You miss out. Are you going to write an email to Beyoncé and ask for a refund? Hell no. Beyoncé ain’t refunding your money just because you decided not to show up, or mismanaged your schedule, or whatever. That was your choice. This may sound like “tough love,” but that’s my policy, too.
Bottom line: Respect your time. Respect mine. Say “yes” to the experiences that you really want — and show up. Showing up is so sexy. Beyoncé would approve. Refund policy = complete.
