General Site Policies for Chat, Message Board Additional Terms Guidelines

Post and reply responsibly

Although sharing is encouraged, feel free to read without posting and learn from others

Offer opinions, not judgments

Be yourself–as long as you always act with respect to yourself and others

Keep your personal information personal

Keep posts relevant to the topic at hand



  • Keep your language clean and inoffensive
  • Do not post information protected by copyright
  • Never post commercial messages or solicitations of any kind

References to outside programs or services not  endorsed by Brook Noel or Make Today Matter, LLC. are not allowed with the exception of the “Treasures and Finds” area within the Community Forums accessible after completion of the Toolbox.

Why? The MTM Program realizes that “getting sidetracked” is one of the top reasons a plan of action becomes more challenging or is abandoned (as outlined in Step 2 of the Toolbox.) Discussion of other systems that Brook Noel  has not specifically approved or endorsed and Brook Noel and the MTM Staff do not specifically have knowledge of creates content that can sidetrack or confuse members. In order to provide a relevant support system, only information which MTM Staff is specifically trained in, and therefore can answer questions on, is allowed. MTM wants to ensure members know specifically which programs are supported by Brook Noel. MTM is a paid membership program, therefore we diligently enforce information is relevant to the instruction and use of the MTM Program. If you have a specific suggestion you would like to share with a user, please use the messaging system.


Help us watch: If you see a post before we do or encounter a member that you feel is in violation of our Policies, please report it to us by emailing debbie@maketodaymatter.net.
