Are there any “hidden costs” in addition to my membership fees?

The answer is unequivocally NO. We don’t have hidden agendas to up-sell our members on other training materials, or unannounced packages. You will only be charged for your recurring membership fee.

Can I stop and restart my membership and return to where I left off in the training?

Because of the progressive nature of our eCourse, it is not possible to start your membership, cancel it, and then start again later where you left off. Although you can rejoin SpeakerMatch Academy after cancelling, you will be required to start at the beginning of the program again.

Does my membership include personal coaching?

While we will always be available to handle support requests (e.g. I can’t download this week’s lesson) we simply don’t have the time to personally coach our members for private phone calls or one on one meetings. We feel that the system we’ve set up is ideal for providing a more than adequate level of support for all of our members. Also, the SpeakerMatch Academy forum will provide a learning resource where questions can be asked and answered by other members as well as instructors.
