Throughout this blog, I recommend products or services that are linked to affiliate links. This means that I may earn a commission on any purchase you may make using my affiliate link. This will not incur any additional cost to you.
I work very hard to give you resources that will help you, my readers, and I would only recommend products/services that I truly believe in and use myself. I want to help you improve your life and only recommend things that I feel will give you value.
You should assume that any links leading you to a product/service are affiliate links and that I will receive a commission from your purchase. If you use my links, just know that I am extremely grateful because I know that you don’t have to use my links.
