40% Off Closeout Sale

Monday, July 31st, 2017

 

The hosting service used for my webinars has a space limit, so I’m having to reduce the number of recorded presentations I can inventory online.

Before that date, we’re offering a 40% price reduction on our current offerings. Coupon code: fortyoff. No minimum order required. Order deadline is 3 August–at that point, we’ll pull enough presentations to get our server space under control.

Discounted items include some of our most popular items. Download is immediate. View as often as you want after download.

Presentations are down-to-earth, understandable, and practical. We don’t waste time in the presentations trying to get you to buy something else or marketing other items. That’s not how we roll. Our prices are the best in the business.
