Terms and Conditions


The terms and conditions (hereinafter “terms”) below apply to membership and use of all websites that are operated by Allied Entrepreneurs. 

These terms will be modified after forming a new company, which will operate Allied Entrepreneurs. At that time, all membership agreements will be assigned to that company, which means you agree to us assigning operation and liability to the new company and hold the co-founders blameless for any liability as if they never operated the company. 

The founders of Allied Entrepreneurs are Victor Patalano (hereinafter “Vic”) and Steven Peter Burke (hereinafter “Smiling Steve”). Vic and Steve are pleased to provide Allied Entrepreneurs as a service for business owners and salespeople, which may be referred to as entrepreneurs.

General Definitions and understandings:

  • A “user” is a non-registered visitor to any Allied Entrepreneurs website.

  • “Allied Entrepreneurs” is the operating name for the company the co-founders are forming.
  • The phrases “make more money” or “making more money” that are used within the websites and in videos or podcasts are not a guarantee by Smiling Steve, Vic or Allied Entrepreneurs that members will increase their profits as a result of membership.
  • When we discuss “risk” in business, we are usually referring to a cost or investment in a project, be that money and/or time.
  • Allied Entrepreneurs does not assume the risk that any member’s time or investment and will be held blameless for any lack of return, perceived or real, as individual effort is required on the member’s part to do well as a member (“You get out what you put in!”).

  • “Professional Development” on this site refers to learning and mastering business, networking and communication skills and at least understanding how technology works best to assist entrepreneurs.
  • POD or PODs refers to a group or groups in a given local area that were formed for members of Allied Entrepreneurs™, which are are similar to affiliated Business Breakfast Clubs without onerous initiation fees and ongoing fees.
  • “Givers” try to help other members with advice and support (long-term thinkers), referrals and keeping an open mind to collaborations. 
  • “Takers” only want referrals and do not (or rarely) help other members (short-term thinkers). 
  • Givers get more from any business networking than takers.
  • “Collaborate” or “Collaboration” refers to 2 or more members sharing the risk and costs of doing joint venture marketing together because they have the same target audience.
  • The spirit of this agreement is that fun and profit should go hand in hand, which means that business networking should not be a chore, especially when you realize the truth and embrace the fact that other entrepreneurs can and will help you build your business.
