Frequently Asked Questions

Why do programs use the Question Method?
The best way to provide advice from afar is for an expert to ask you the right questions that will help you learn the right processes to come up with the answer that is best for that situation. Each program will help guide you towards a plan by asking you the questions that will help you solve the problem. It is the principle of: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
Where do my answers go?
After completing the program you will see your answers on your Dashboard, as well as in an email report sent to you. Your Dashboard is an action-oriented application that will help you apply the expert guidance to your life.
How long does it take to complete the program?
Each program takes roughly 15 to 30 minutes to complete. However, they are designed to help you think through your problems, and you may come up with a solution and a plan before going through the entire thing.
Is there a way to track my progress or look at my answers within the program?
You can do this in your Dashboard.
Can I come back if I don’t have time to go through all the steps?
Yes. The programs are built for use when and where you need them. You may come and go as you please.
Why do I have to buy a subscription?
Unlike an online course or a book, these programs are built for long-term use and continual improvement.
Which package is right for me?
That depends on how much accountability you need. The Over-Achiever package is our most popular choice because it includes Educo Community's Get Problems Solved program. So often the ability to achieve our goals is derailed because of poor planning and the problems of everyday life. No matter which package you choose you will be taking a step towards improving your quality of life.
What if I am unhappy with the program?
We would never want you to be unhappy. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
