Webinar Closeout Reminder

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

So…effective 11 May 2016, I’ll no longer be selling the recorded copies of old webinars as shown below (we’ll still have our scheduled ones in May and will have downloads for those who register and happen to miss those). But we will be stopping the sales for a while so that I can regroup and focus.

Now’s a great time to order. Our prices are low and orders over $50 can receive an additional discount by using coupon code 2016over50.
