To ensure that every member receives a maximum return on her investment of time and membership fees:

The Nonnegotiables

You must not miss meetings. This requirement is not burdensome because you will work within your small group to find a time and date that works well for all. You will mark your calendar months in advance so nothing takes precedence over this investment in yourself and your business.

Everything that is discussed in your Vault must be held in the strictest of confidence. You may not share what you heard with anyone, not even your spouse. Your Vault must be a safe place to share your personal and professional challenges.

You must be on time. You’ve agreed to the time and date so plan your day accordingly, anticipating traffic, weather, etc. so you are ALWAYS on time. Likewise, you must be prepared to listen fully and share fully.

The greatest value you will receive from your Vault is the diversity of experiences of the other members. Treat one another with respect, listening and learning from others.
