Business Hive Agreement


This Group Coaching Participation Agreement (“Agreement”) governs the terms and conditions for participation by you (the “Participant”) in The Business Hive, a group coaching program (“Program”) created by Therapy in the Great Outdoors, LLC (“Company”).

1. The Program 

The Program is a twelve-month group coaching program for small business owners organized to educate participants about various aspects of operating and growing a business. The Program will run from the day Participant’s payment is received (“Payment Start Date”) by Therapy in the Great Outdoors LLC through twelve (12) months thereafter  (“Program End Date”). 

The Program includes: 

- Access to membership community with trainings, templates, and resources for duration of enrollment; 

- Access to Business Bedrocks program for duration of enrollment;  

- Access to group coaching calls for duration of enrollment.

2. Program Fee and Payment Schedule 

Participant agrees to pay the requisite Program Fee in full. At the time of enrollment, Participant will have the option of choosing between (a) the Pay in Full option or (b) the Payment Plan option. 

For Participants Paying in Full:

If Participant elects the pay in full option, then the Program Fee is $3,997 (“Program Fee”) and is due at the time of enrollment.

For Participants Selecting the Payment Plan:

The Program Fee is $4,164 (“Program Fee”), payable in twelve (12) monthly installments of $347 as follows: $347 is due on the Program Start Date (“Initial Payment”). The remaining eleven (11) monthly installments of $347 each must be paid each consecutive month starting thirty (30) calendar days after the Initial Payment is made until the Program Fee is paid in full. 

Participant authorizes Company to automatically charge the credit card on file for any and all Program Fee balanced owed and agrees to keep this information current with the Company.

After one year in the Program, Participant may decide to continue enrollment at an alumni rate of $125/month on a month-to-month basis as long as they wish to continue membership in the Hive. 

Failed Payments 

If any payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, Participant will receive an automatic fourteen (14) calendar day grace period (“Grace Period”) to pay the outstanding balance owed. If the outstanding balance is not paid before the Grace Period ends, the Participant will be removed from the Program, without liability on the part of the Company, and the matter will be referred to a third-party collection service to recover the outstanding amounts owed by Participant. 

Disputed Payments 

Upon enrollment in the Program, Participant waives any right to file a dispute with his/her credit card provider, payment processor, and/or other financial institution regarding the amounts paid or owed by Participant for the purchase of the Program, whether or not  Program access has been revoked for Participant’s violation of this Agreement. 

No Refunds 

Participant understands and agrees that there is a strict no-refund policy for this Program and that by enrolling in this Program he/she/they are responsible for the full Program Fee. Requests for cancellations and/or refunds received by the Company will not be honored and any outstanding Program Fee balance owed to the Company must be made in full, even if Participant is unable or unwilling to participate in the Program. 

Removal of the Participant from the Program due to Participant’s violation of the terms of this Agreement does not excuse his/her/their obligation to pay the Program Fee in full.
