Consulting/Coaching ~ There are no refunds on consulting.

Coaching is a very personal endeavor. It takes commitment on our end and also on your end. Sometimes accountability is painful and frustrating. Sometimes it is exciting and expanding. Sometimes you don't get the results you want. Sometimes you get results that are better than you could have imagined. Your success is completely dependent on you, your partner and the actions you both take to move forward. We work hard to tailor experiences to your specific needs. We may at times need to dig a little deeper to have the information we need to help you. We will ALWAYS keep your personal information personal. Integrity is very important to us.

We know that sometimes all these rules can be a downer. We are sincerely sorry if we fall short of your expectations. Our goal is to continually strive to do better and work harder than before. Please realize that we are a small company.  We strive to answer email timely and to meet the needs of our clients and customers. When you support Waldorf Essentials, you are supporting families that probably aren't too different from your own. We have budgets and babies and children to homeschool. As we have grown we also have other families that help us. Your support is appreciated. We do make every effort to work with you when there is a problem and only ask that you do the same.

We make every effort to help you enjoy our products. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions. We love happy customers… this depends a lot on how customers feel when they come to shop with us… please be in a good and a happy place. Peace abounds. Blessings!
