- MEMBERSHIP RATES AND ACCOUNT ACCESS
BFS offers two options for access to the members-only content: Monthly Memberships and Blackbelt Memberships. Monthly Memberships are paid through a subscription rate of $229.00 per month, for a term of 48 months, and Members receive access to one new Module per month during the course of the subscription. If a Monthly Membership subscription payment fails, access to all content will immediately be discontinued until the payment form is updated and processed. Blackbelt Memberships are paid in full, either in one lump sum payment of $4,788.00 or in three consecutive, monthly payments of $1,596.00. If a monthly, $229 member would like to convert to a Blackbelt Membership after several months in the program, ALL remaining $229 monthly payments will be discounted by 56.44%, and the member would pay that new, discounted amount in either one lump sum, or over 3, consecutive monthly payments beginning at that point. No consideration will be given for prior payments of $229 per month. Both Monthly and Blackbelt Memberships allow access to the members-only content for a duration of 4 years from the date of initial purchase. At the completion of the 4-year period, all Memberships will automatically convert to a Graduate Membership subscription at the rate of $47.00 per month, which allows for access to all members-only content. If a Graduate Membership subscription payment fails, access to all content will immediately be discontinued until the payment form is updated and processed. Please note that all sales are final – and there will be no refunds – at any point once the member has passed the 60 initial days after signing-up for the BFS program.

- MISCELLANEOUS LEGAL PROVISIONS
TERMS FOR LIVE EVENTS
Please carefully read the following terms and conditions relating to your participation in the Business Growth Summit event – or any events – conducted by Business Finishing School, LLC. (the “Promoter”). By registering for the event you (the “Buyer”) signify your acceptance of, and obligation to, these terms and conditions. If you have objections to the following Terms and Conditions, you should not register for, or attend, the Event.
Promoter requires all Buyers to be respectful and professional to our staff, location hosts, speakers, and other attendees, and their guests or families, throughout the event even during non-scheduled downtime and breaks. Promoter reserves the right to ask Buyer and/or their guests to leave the conference and/or the hotel or meeting room(s) immediately should they be deemed rude, uncooperative, unprofessional, intoxicated, or in possession of any illegal substance(s). In such case, the Buyer’s tuition/fees/payments for the event will not be refunded under any circumstances (in fact the Promoter has an “All Sales Final, No Refund Policy” for all events), and they will not receive any of our advertised bonuses, or qualify for our satisfaction guarantee, or any other written or implied guarantee
Under no circumstances will Promoter or their assigns be held liable for Buyer’s injury or death, or any loss or damage of personal belongings, resulting from participation in the seminar. Buyer hereby accepts all risks to his or her health, including injury or death that may result from participating in events; and hereby releases Promoter, Business Finishing School, LLC, and their officers, employees, interns, contractors, sponsors, and representatives from any and/all liability to his or herself and their personal representatives, estate, heirs, next of kin, and assigns for any and all claims and causes of action for loss of or damage to Buyer’s property, and for any and all illness or injury to Buyer’s person, including death, that may result from or occur during Buyer’s participation at Promoter’s events; even whether caused by the negligence of the Promoter or its representatives. Buyer agrees to notify Promoter if he/she has any medical or psychological conditions that may hamper them from fully and healthfully participating in the seminar and acknowledges that the Promoter retains the right to ask them not to participate in portions of or the entirety of the seminar. Buyer acknowledges and agrees to be financially responsible for any medical or legal bills that may be incurred as a result of participation in the seminar, including any emergency medical treatment. Promoter does not give legal or financial advice, and under no circumstances will be held liable for results
Once attendee registers for any of our events, we make extensive arrangements and investments into event production; and in the case of an attendee asking for a refund, since we incur significant administration burdens, we have a “No Refund Policy” for any reason. Additionally, due to limited space, we reserve a seat on your behalf that takes away from other potential attendees. Given this fact, any tickets purchased are valid for this event ONLY. We do not issue refunds for purchased tickets or cancellations. Also, you cannot use your purchased ticket for any other credits or future events, only this particular event. To reiterate, due to the nature of the live-event business, all of our live events, including the Business Growth Summit, do not issue refunds, and all sales are final. If a live event is canceled due to an act of God, a government mandate, or for ANY other reason, all tickets will be moved to and will be valid for the next, scheduled live event. Even in this case, all sales are final and there are no refunds ever.
