These examples are not typical. Because of the variables associated with defining success, and because those variables are so personalized, it is impossible to accurately state what an individual may or may not achieve. Success is determined on an individual basis and is dependent on a variety of factors including willingness to take action and implement ideas based on what is taught, prevailing market conditions, target market selection, and the amount of hard work and effort an individual expends, among other factors. The customers depicted in any testimonials have declared that the information shared is true and accurate of their experience. The written, audio, and visual presentations offered may have been edited from their original versions. Some personal and private information has been removed in order to protect privacy.
Your privacy is very important to us. At The Career Files we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
