Who sets the price that Resource Strategists charge members for services?

A.

Each Resource Strategist is an independent contractor; consequently, the programs/services that they offer are all unique to their business model.

Q?

How are members directed to Resource Strategists?

A.

Once a 12 month strategic plan has been developed by a member and the founder, Sherill Calhoun, she is guided to review and get in touch with all three of the Resource Strategists in the category that she has chosen to become proficient. This is a free market model, which allows members the freedom to choose who they feel is the right fit for them.

Q?

What if I am not satisfied with the Resource Strategist that I decide to work with?

A.

Each strategist has been chosen for her integrity, skills, and ability to get results for her clients. When a member engages with a Resource Strategist after taking the time to review her programs/personality/price point, it is up to both the Resource Strategist and the member to resolve any issues of dissatisfaction they might have occurred while doing business together. It is only to the Resource Strategist’s advantage to have happy clients.

Q?

Do members have to pay $149 if they decide to renew for another year?

A.

Yes. The $149 membership fee covers access to the Resource Strategists at a price point that has been specifically developed for The Fempreneur Network’s members and each year a new strategic plan (it is not a one- time event) is developed by the member and Sherill Calhoun, Founder.
