Here's how it works: When you enroll yourself or your company, you will receive an e-mail from me. Simply reply to that e-mail with the contact information of the non-profit. I'll then reach out to them with a special code they can use to enroll for free -- compliments of you! It's a great way to help the organizations you care about grow with you!

One Last Personal Message For You
Thank you very much for checking out my course, How To Build Your Growth Strategy. You've made it to the end of the page! But, I wanted to share one more thing before you go.
It has taken me over 25 long years to learn about growth strategy and it is an honor to share what I know with you. My aim is to help you grow and prosper. I didn't always know this stuff and I learned the hard way. Sure, I have had success in business.
But, I've also made many mistakes and had some outright failures along the way.
The good news is that I've learned from those mistakes and failures. And, if I can share what I've learned to help make your business better, even in this small way, then it makes it all worth while.
Thanks for giving me a chance to share this with you. I hope to see you in the course soon!
