The freedom of more cash in your pocket will bring you relief, peace and better sleep

It’s a digital self-study program that gives you immediate access to strategic step-by-step instructions to move old, unsold inventory off your shelves, and put more cash in your pocket during your successful clearance sale, so you can stock the fresh, exciting products your customers really want.

“We did [a sale based on Killer Clearance Sale Secrets] this past summer. We cleared out [about] 95% percent of our clearance stuff, about $15k retail, and the best part is that we actually MADE money on it. I actually had to bring in merchandise to fill out our upcoming sale as we just don’t have that much stuff currently on the floor that needs to go into clearance.”
—Leanne Payne, Cherry Lane Scrapbook Shoppe

Closing one of our locations was a very emotional and difficult decision but with Cathy’s detailed, organized, step by step approach, we had a successful, smooth closing sale. She was available any time we had a question or an issue, which is important during this high-stress time. Everything was sold in just 7 weeks, and we deposited almost 49 cents for every $1 of inventory we had when we started!
