I can’t believe it’s been almost nine months since we launched Platform University. It has been more successful than I could have imagined. The feedback from our members has been stellar.
We extended the introductory price of $25 a month longer than we initially planned. However, the price is going up to $30 a month on Friday, September 13. Until then, you can still get in at the old price and save $60 a year!

A verse in the Bible that says,
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear” (Ephesians 4:29, NASB)
