The Closing is Coming

I've mentioned a few times over the past two weeks that I'm now accepting students for my Excel Macros Master Class courses, and that the registration doors are now open.

The doors don't stay open forever, however. In fact, they will close in just a few more days, at the end of the day on Thursday (October 18). It's not too late to join a class, but you'll want to act soon, as time is running out.

By the way, if you want to see a great overview of what is in the courses, the best place is in these special videos I prepared:

As you can tell, one of the videos on this page is for the Beginning Excel Macros Master Class and the other is for the Advanced Excel Macros Master Class. The videos run through all the content in each course, highlighting what you can expect to find in each of them.

Since the course deadline is approaching, I'll send you one more reminder on Wednesday, the day before the actual "closing."

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the tips in this week's issue of the newsletter!
