First, the obvious: I am a direct sales blogger, and a network marketing blogger.
Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Or simply recommend a program or service that would earn me a commission.
Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.
To cover my Gluteus Maximus and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
Thank you Tim Ferriss for the majority of this ad copy!
And thanks Troy Dooly for letting me copy some of this swag!
