Just a reminder that the How to Think Sideways course (see my review here) is on sale only through this link for this week. There's a new option, too -
You can sign up for the 6-month course, which is US$47 per month.
You can now sign for the course extended over 12 months, which means you're only paying US$23.50 per month.
Obviously it's the same amount total, but as a student I can appreciate that $23.50 makes a much smaller dent in your monthly budget. And don't forget, you can drop out at any time and you will be fully refunded for any lessons in the month that you haven't received yet - meaning that it will cost you $11.75 to test out the course, download lesson one, and see you think it's for you.
Sales go live at 9am Eastern Daylight Time, through this link, and will be open for 7 days. Remember that if you buy through my link, I can offer you a %25 refund once it clears at the end of each month.
