Q: What if I only need to become the leader of myself? In other words, I have some goals that need self motivation. Is this box right for me? Asked by Renee K., September 2020
Absolutely! Our box is for all leaders and managers, current and future.
Q: What kind of subscription is the coupon code for? It didn't work on a 3-month subscription. Thanks!Asked by Rina S., August 2020
The subscription code is for our month-to-month membership option. Hope you love your box!
Q: When will I get my box? Asked by Julia M., May 2020
The cutoff date for each month is the 1st. We ship each month on the 15th. For example, that means that if you order on April 1st, you'll get the April 15th box. If you order on April 12th, you'll get the May 15th box.
They ship on the 15th, but you have to order by the 1st. Kind of confusing- I ordered on the 3rd and didn’t get until the 15th I’d next month. Worth the wait though!
What great value for the price! I think many people are interested in supporting smaller businesses and/or expanding their professional development library but are unsure how to do so. This box allows you to do both. It is well worth it!
Thank you for the great review! We love hearing from happy customers
Great for professional development! I love the idea of a book plus items from women owned businesses. Really nice!
Thank you for the kind comment! We hope to keep wowing you with our box in the future :)
I received my first box tonight and love it! I actually had this book on my reading wish list, but hadn’t taken the time to order it yet. I love the self care items included and can’t wait to try them. My only complaint is the shipping communication, or lack there of. I had to go back and check my account a few times to see if/when my box would ship. Now that I’m more familiar with the schedule, I shouldn’t have the same frustration in the future.
Thanks Lindsey! We're actively working on improving our shipping process and I really appreciate the honest feedback! Hope we keep wowing you with our box contents in the future :)
The billing and lag time is very strange. The box itself is pretty good and the books are right on topic. It would be a great purchase for someone looking to get exposed to new female authors on workplace topics.
Thanks so much for the great review! We're actively working on improving our communication in regards to shipping/billing going forwards. We ship each month on the 15th and the cutoff date to order for the month is by the 1st of the month. Since you ordered on April 12th, your first box was the May box, which shipped on May 15th. I sincerely apologize if this wasn’t clearly communicated and will be reevaluating our product listing and email communications to make this clearer.
I must have signed up for this during the wrong month, because I have to say I was disappointed. I was really looking forward to this, especially as I’m getting ready to publish a management book and I thought it would be awesome to try to be included.
The book in the box was a win for me because it was in my list - but it want a female author as advertised, but not a big deal. The items are what disappointed me - a magnet, a pencil sharpener, and an eraser. I like magnets so that was cool, but since I’ll never need a pencil sharpener or an eraser it was pretty underwhelming for $40.
I signed up for 3 months, so I really hope the next one is more impressive. I’ve read your responses to the other reviews and I can definitely tell you care. This just missed the mark for me.
Thank you very much for your kind works and honest feedback! I really value hearing what products are off-base for my clients to know what to include and what to avoid in the future. I’ll take this all into account as we curate our future boxes and I hope that next month hits the mark better for you
Super disappointed. The shipping timeline makes it so that if you subscribe after the 15th you pay for a box that you never receive. I joined August 19th, paid $40 and received nothing, not even a welcome email or any information on the book club. September 1st I paid another $40, I just received my box to discover I've paid $80 for a book (paperback), an old school pencil sharpener, two erasers and a small bag of candy.
I’m so sorry that your experience with our box is less than stellar. I’ve send you an email to try and make this right. It sounds like a product may have been missing from your box and I would like to make this up to you. I also apologize about the double charge and issued you a refund immediately once I saw your review. There’s a system error that I’m actively working on getting resolved to prevent this in the future. I appreciate your honest feedback and hope you give us the chance to make this right!
I did not receive any box even though I have been subscribed since August and charged twice for two months!!
There is no delay in charging me :) obviously !
but the shipping is a problem ..
I have contact them many times but my issue still pending
I want my money back!
It’s waste of time , I think who need to read about management is the owner ..
I’m so sorry that you had a poor experience. I investigated the double charge when you notified me and it appeared to be a system error. I issued a refund on 9/4/2020, though it sometimes takes up to 10 business days to post to your bank account depending on how they process. My payment processor confirms that it was successfully processed on our end, so I'd suggest reaching out to your bank to see if they are having issues processing on their end.
As far as shipping, as I let you know in a previous email, we are experiencing shipping delays due to the postal service. Unfortunately, I’m unable to control how the post office ships our products, but I can assure you I’m communicating...
I absolutely love this box! Received as a gift from my hubby for my birthday and thought it was such a cool idea. The products are actually useful, unlike other boxes I’ve received in the past, and my first book was one I’d been wanting to read forever but never got around too. I wish it shipped faster, but overall I’m super pleased! Can’t wait for next month.
Thanks Ann! We're definitely working on communicating our shipping process more clearly and am so glad you loved the box!
