I remember just a couple of months ago writing about our last 50 percent off workshop sale, which we called The Last Sale. Vaccination rates were going up here in the US, Covid numbers were coming down, and we seemed to finally see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. It wasn’t over yet, to be sure, but we had hope.
I knew Covid wasn’t done with us yet (as I’ve mentioned, Nola still isn’t eligible to be vaccinated, so my family never really left masking and other mitigation measures behind), but I didn’t see the Delta variant coming.
Maybe I should have, but that’s neither here nor there at this point.
In Oregon, case numbers are exploding, including here on the Oregon Coast. Our governor just reissued a statewide mask mandate (the third state to do so) and our local casino shut its doors for the next two weeks. Including the hotel. During a heat wave in the Valley where tourists are flocking here in droves. They’re losing big money with that move, but the safety of their employees and guests was paramount.
And we’re not even one of the worst-hit states. Not by far.
Whether this should have been able to happen in the US, with our fortunate and easy access to highly effective vaccines is not a topic I’m going to delve into in this blog.
But the reality that things are shutting down again (and have been in other parts of the world) has led us to realize that this thing is far from over.
And so, we’re bringing back our sales. It’s the way we can help, and we all need as much help as we can get to get through these trying times.
So, from now until Aug. 25, we’re offering 50%-off sale on everything on Teachable. Every WMG Publishing Workshop, Lecture, Pop-Up, Class, or Subscription on Teachable is half price.
Go to the WMG Teachable page and click on “see all courses.“ Then find the course you would like to buy and hit purchase. On the top of the next page there is a place to put in the code:

At least the opportunity to learn new skills is something we can count on paying off in the future, no matter what happens.
