So how do you put a value on 23 years of knowledge? How do you put a value on the thousands of dollars of costly mistakes and lessons I have learned over that time? More importantly, how do you put a value on the shortened learning curve it will mean for you?
The answer is… you simply can’t.
But what you can do is give your customer a wonderful deal. And that’s what I intend to do for you.
So after careful deliberation, I decided on a special price for this course of $695.

However, in my teleseminar, I made a promise to you. And that promise was simple. I will not make price an obstruction to anybody who was serious about taking this course.
So before you start thinking, let me explain the offer that I will make to all of my fast responders:
If you respond right away, you will get THREE bonus gifts worth over $420… that’s more than half of the price of the course!
