Some have been evicted-talk about heart breaking. Last month alone I had a profit of $10,978.24, before taxes of about 25%, and since 4 months after joining your course-about 2 years ago- have NOT had to take any money out of social security payments or ira monthly payments to pay any bills. We have paid off our solar power installation bill-over $14,000- a year and a half ago. I wasn’t doing very good at first but Nathan Bailey would NOT let me quit on myself thank God. The lady who was my trainer at first was a big help and I still refer to her notes for reference. Thank you, thank you for pulling me into this course and sticking with it, Be cool, ps you have my unconditional permission to this unintended/unsolicited testimonial wherever you choose psps the IRS loves me because I pay a LOT of taxes” — Jim Lowe- Inkster, Michigan **editor note: Nathan is the coaching director at JimCockrumCoaching.com
