FTC DISCLOSURE: Legal Disclosures

Subscribing To Any Elevating Your Business Forms

When you fill out any form on Elevating Your Business, CoachMaria, Count on Success, Marketing With Integrity, and any other website under Elevating Your Business Enterprise, you are agreeing to our Terms of Use. You are therefore providing your consent to be contacted by us, digitally, electronically or otherwise, to notify you about our services, products, and features offered by Elevating Your Business. You may withdraw your consent at any time. Instructions are to call us, email us or hit the remove button on the bottom of any message.

Thank you for visiting our website. If you want to use this website, you must agree to conform to and be legally bound by the terms and conditions described below.


1. Minors.

We do not provide services or sell products to children without written permission of their parents, which we receive from time to time. If you are below the age of 18, you may use our website only with the permission and active involvement of a parent or legal guardian. If you are a minor, please do not provide us or other website visitors with any personal information.

2. Affiliate Programs

As a business owner, I promote my own products on my websites and may provide others who market my services with a commission. The commission they receive never increases your cost.

The family of Elevating Your Business sites participates in affiliate advertising programs where I market other people’s products or services that we use, have tested, or our clients use. Again, you never pay more for purchasing these programs.

If you purchase anything through a link on our websites or newsletter, you should assume that we have an affiliate relationship with the company providing the product or service that you purchase, and that we will be paid in some way. We recommend that you do always your own independent research before purchasing anything.

Participation in these programs means that whenever you purchase something from a link on my website, that takes you to another website, we receive a percentage of the purchase. The commissions we receive, through such sites like Amazon (for example), are put back into the business and helps offset operations costs. They also allow us to provide you with free resources and the free tips you find on this blog.

3. Testimonials

Always do your own due diligence and use your own judgment when making buying decisions and investments in your business. Any income claims shared by my students, friends, or clients are understood to be true and accurate, but are not verified in any way.

Often, I like to pass along testimonials of typical results from my top-achieving clients and subscribers. Please don’t assume you’ll be duplicating their results. It takes hard work, dedication, and persistence to make it in business. However, if you have big dreams then let’s get started. I provide no-cost initial consultations

4. Concepts & Tips

Concepts and strategies shared in communication from Elevating Your Business are ideas that have worked for members of our team, students, clients, and friends. The publisher of this website takes great care to thoroughly research the information provided on the website and through our blogs and newsletter. We do our best to ensure that what is provided is accurate and current.

Concepts are not specific advice for your business. Always use your own judgment and/or get the advice of professionals to find the right strategies for your business and your particular situation. No information we proved is ever intended to provide tax, legal, accounting, financial, or professional advice.

Additionally, the publisher cannot guarantee that the information on this website has not been outdated or otherwise rendered incorrect by subsequent new research or changes in the law.
