Describing your credentials
You can create a business card/ flyer/ website with your name and company logo as the focus. You may include the words “Certified Heroic Performance Coach”, and the “Heroic Performance Coach Badge”, but not the Heroic logo in full or in part (including the wordmark or the black or red Heroic mark or any combination of the two).
You can share an email promoting a few of your favorite +1’s on a specific topic that has your branding prominent (and links to those +1s). You may include the “Heroic Performance Coach Badge” in this type of branding alongside your own branding, but not the Heroic logo in full or in part (including the wordmark or the black or red Heroic mark or any combination of the two).
You may share Heroic Coach worksheets in a coaching context, but you may not add your own branding to them, remove Heroic branding from them, or present them as your own.
Using the Heroic Logo and Mark
Any use of the main Heroic logo in full or in part (including the wordmark or the black or red Heroic mark or any combination of the two) – we specifically created the “Heroic Performance Coach Badge” for your co-branding use.
If you are in the Heroic Coach program but have not received your certification, you may not represent yourself as a Certified Heroic Performance Coach, or use the Heroic Performance Coach Badge.
The Heroic brand, including the Heroic Performance Coach Badge, should not be used on products or items for resale without Heroic’s written consent.
Graphic devices, such as outlines, drop shadows, color etc., should not be used on the Heroic Performance Coach Badge.
As a Certified Heroic Performance Coach, you may not represent yourself as working for Heroic Public Benefit Corporation, including on LinkedIn, business cards, resumes, or your own websites/ service collateral.
The Heroic Performance Coach Badge
Certified Heroic Performance Coaches may use this logo alongside your personal brand on business cards, websites, and other promotional material.
To protect the legibility of the Heroic Performance Coach Badge a clear area of 1/8 inch should be left around it. No other text or image should be placed within this area.
The Heroic Performance Coach Badge should only appear as provided, in the colors provided, with no alterations.
Single Color Logo Version
Sometimes the logo must appear in an environment where the preferred 2-color method is not an option. In the case of black and white printing or a non-specified background color, logo should appear in solid black or reversed out white.
You can use this language from Heroic:

When establishing your company’s website name, please remember that all of the naming guidelines listed above still apply. The word “Heroic” as it applies to this work may not be used in the URL of your website, social handles, or your business name.
Social Media Handles
All of the previously listed guidelines on the use of the Heroic name also apply when creating social media handles. If you would like to create a social media handle to promote your services please use “Heroic Coach” alongside your own name. Heroic should not be used as part of your social media handle outside of these guidelines.
How to use Facebook
Post on our wall or create an identity with your name, followed by “Certified Heroic Coach” or “Heroic Coach”.
How to use Twitter
We love to hear from you on Twitter. The same guidelines for Twitter handles apply as with all uses of the Heroic name. One great way to get your message out is to use the hash tag #Heroic. Your tweets will then be available for anyone looking for Heroic tweets. Also, we love to hear from you so let us know what you are sharing and include @___________” in your tweet.

We encourage you to use and share the various content and resources offered by Heroic. To support you, we have created a toolbox of content intended for you to do just that. As a participant in this Training, you will have access to a secured section of the site that will contain a host of support materials that you can use or share along your journey. In addition, we encourage you to have your friends or clients have the appropriate subscription so they can access any all of the other relevant content you may want to suggest that are not a part of the toolbox. Sharing Heroic content that is not in the toolbox with someone who is not an Heroic subscriber would require the express written consent of Heroic.
Frequently Asked Questions
There is a PN and/or a 101 that really changed my life. I’d love to share it with a friend/client. Can I send them the PDF?
Awesome! We love hearing that our work has improved your life and that you want to share it with someone you care about. Our content is protected by copyright law and should not be distributed directly. However, if you direct people to our site, where they can receive +1’s for free, or subscribe to get access to the content library, you can freely curate and share the relevant material links.
I’d like to create my own class/sessions using the concepts and/or outline from a 101 and a coaching session. I would be putting it in my own words and creating my own materials to support it. Is that ok?
Is that ok? No, that’s awesome! That’s exactly what you should be doing, and we are honored to be able to provide you with the framework and inspiration to go out and apply what you’ve learned. Of course, you should reference Heroic when appropriate.
If I purchased a URL does this mean I own that name? Can I use the word Heroic in that domain?
You may own the domain, but the use of “Heroic" in your domain is unlicensed and against our policies.
If I am a Certified Heroic Coach, how can I use the name legally?
As a certified Coach, you can say that you use the Heroic wisdom, protocol, methods, etc., and that you’re part of the extended Heroic family, but you may not represent yourself directly or indirectly as a representative of Heroic. You can call yourself a Certified Heroic Performance Coach. You may list your Heroic qualification on a business card, resume, or website bio/qualifications type of page. Upon becoming a licensed partner you will have the legal right to use the Heroic name for business and/or promotional purposes.
If I become a Certified Coach, does this mean I can certify people to be Heroic Coaches?
Only Heroic Enterprises, Public Benefit Corp can certify people. The only way to obtain a
Heroic certification is through one of our certification courses.
What material from Heroic can I use to promote my business?

Yes. We do not limit the number of Coaches in any given area.

Can I set my own rates?
Absolutely. There’s a lot to think about when it comes to setting rates. This subject is covered several times throughout the program and we offer several recommendations to how to approach this topic, but in the end, how you set your rates is entirely up to you.
Do I have to pay Heroic a percentage of my rates?
No. This is a coach training program that certifies that you completed our training to our standards. This is not a franchise, employee relationship, referral program or business relationship that would require you to compensate us outside of your fees for the program and any continuing education requirements. The role of Heroic is to train you in the Heroic Protocol and then to support you in your skill development as a coach. From there, how you design and building your business, create your programs/services, and build your brand is entirely up to you.
Do I need insurance?
