Please respect the quoted time frames above on both the Client and Coach’s end. Please complete all segments in the timeframe requested and know the Coach will do the same.

If you do not complete you edits in the time frame detailed above, the Coach has the right to stop work and end this relationship. We want you to receive your resume in a timely fashion so please put the work in up front.
