WEBSITE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

Affiliate Disclosure

From time to time, I will promote, endorse, or suggest products and/or services for sale. My recommendation is ALWAYS based on my belief that the product and it’s author will provide excellent and valuable information or service based on a review of that product, my relationship with that person, and or previous positive experience with the person or company whose product I am recommending. In some cases, I will be compensated if you decide to purchase that product based on my recommendation. In some cases, I will receive the product for free for review purposes. Always Always Always do your OWN due diligence before making any purchases. Never purchase anything that you cannot afford.

Most people don’t do anything with the products they buy, so most of the time, their typical results are zero. Don’t do drugs, stay in school. There is no such thing as a Silver Bullet…and Good Luck!

Health & Other Recommendations.

I will talk and write about a lot of health idea’s and recommend various modalities, techniques, and philosophies that I have found helpful to me. This in no way guarantee’s the same experience for you. Please consult your own practitioners and discuss and changes you may make to your current health care. I am not a trained practitioner or councillor. I have read and study a great deal and have my own personal success story. However, you must seek out the best professional qualified practitioners, and health care providers advice and take responsibility for your own life. Your success and life may take a different course and you may get different results.

The Longer Story…

The purpose of this page is to disclose to you what this blog is about, who I am, and what you are in for when you read any content from me or in any email newsletters  or the like you may receive from me.

How I Make Money

Today the majority of my income for this site will come from the following –

Affiliate promotions where I am paid a commission if someone buys another person’s product or service after clicking an affiliate link on one of my websites or in an email I send to you.
And in the future it may come from sales of ebooks, online courses, membership sites and other information and training products I’ve created.
And that is pretty much it. You can learn a lot from my websites and newsletters, but always do your research before buying anything and never expect easy money or quick solutions to change your life, there is no such thing. Change can sometimes be dramatic, but in more cases is a slow and steady progress forward.
