However, there is no guarantee that you will get any results or earn any money using any of our ideas, information, tools, strategies or recommendations. Our stylist training programs are not “get rich programs.” Our training programs are intended to help you develop a styling brand or business. Nothing on our Sites are a promise or guarantee of earnings. Our programs take a lot of work and discipline just like any worthwhile endeavor or professional, continuing education program. Your level of success is dependent upon a number of factors including your skill, knowledge, ability, dedication, business savvy, network, and financial situation, to name a few. Because these factors differ according to individuals, we cannot and do not guarantee your success, income level, or ability to earn revenue. You alone are responsible for your actions and results in life and business. We just want to assist you by giving great content, direction, and strategies. Please only enroll in our programs if you are serious and dedicated to real professional development and want to add value to your life and others’ lives.
