❓Infrequently Asked Questions

How much does the course cost? – Nothing, nada, zip. It’s free. Your mobile phone network provider may charge you, but I don’t.

How does it differ from other self help courses? – Most advice about achieving goals starts with defining the goal. They say you have to know what you want to achieve before you can achieve it. The Fire Control approach says that you don’t need to know the exact goal or target you just need to get moving in the general direction of your goal and define it as you get closer.
