Michele is not your lawyer. You the client (“you” or “client”) need to understand that the services provided by Michele Powers, Esq., Elite Lawyer Coaching and Karuna Connect (collectively “Michele” or “company”) are only coaching, consulting and educational services and are not legal advice or legal services. Although Michele is a licensed attorney, nothing in the retention of her services as a coach or consultant creates, or is intended to create, an attorney – client relationship. While the services and what you discuss are confidential and will be held in strict confidence by Michele, the legal protections and duties of the attorney-client relationship do not and will not apply.
Michele is also not your medical doctor or therapist. Let’s be clear, there is no provision of medical services available here. Coaching, consulting and education are not therapy or psychotherapy and do not constitute medical care or treatment. It is important that you are mindful of your needs and well-being during the course of our relationship, and you need to seek medical treatment if needed. Michele is not responsible for any decision by you as a result of the coaching or a consequence of a decision made by you.
Payment is expected before your coaching session. Please be sure to make your payments in a timely manner before your sessions. When you sign up for a payment package, you agree that you are ready, willing and financially able to make the payments. You accept the payment package by clicking the button and processing your payment information, and by those acts you create a binding agreement to fulfill payment of all the payments in the package. You, the client, are obligated to pay for the entire package even if you do not ultimately use all of your sessions. All payments are due and payable on the dates set out and invoiced through PayPal, according to the selected package details. Separate authorization or agreement by you is not required. If for any reason there is a problem with any payment by you that results in fees being incurred by company, you agree that you are responsible for full reimbursement to company of those fees.
Please respect the company’s intellectual property and that of the Life Purpose Institute’s as well.

You are not authorized to distribute or duplicate these copyrighted and protected original materials without the prior written consent of Michele or the company or the Life Purpose Institute.

No guarantee of results. It is a fact that coaching and change are hard work. Success while coaching is about your individual efforts for your career and life. Michele will do all she can to reasonably support you and assist you to meet your goals. We want you to succeed! However, there is no guarantee of success. The fact is habits are hard to change, and it is up to you to provide the hard work, connections and luck required to succeed in your life and reach your goals.
Limitation of liability – You agree to assume all the risk, either foreseeable or unforeseeable, arising from these transactions which are solely for coaching, consulting and education. You agree not to hold Michele or the company liable for any damages of any kind that may in some way arise from your use or enrollment in Michele’s and/or the company’s services. The use of Michele’s and/or company’s services is solely at the client’s own risk.
If there is any liability found, regardless of the preceding paragraphs, company’s liability to client or any third party is limited to the lesser of 1) the total fees paid to the company in the one month prior to the action giving rise to the liability or 2) $1,000, whichever is less.
Be kind to each other, fellow participants and no mean or disparaging statements. We sure hope everything is always warm and fuzzy between you and the company, and we plan to take the high road whenever possible. In the event something is not how you want it to be, you and the company agree to be nice to each other, do our best to work it out and, if all else fails, agree that neither you nor the company will engage in public or private conduct that is disparaging to the other. You also agree to be kind, considerate and confidential in your communications concerning or with fellow participants of company programs.
Other technical stuff – agreement to arbitration and choice of law. If there does end up being a conflict we cannot resolve between us amicably, you and the company agree to proceed with arbitration under the American Arbitration Association rules. The choice of law is the State of California. The venue agreed to is the County of Los Angeles, California.
