This website is about helping people create more fulfilled lives and building a community of solopreneurs. It is not primarily financially driven.

Nonetheless, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers—but rules are rules.

To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:

Please feel free to use the text and images on this page with proper attribution. There is no reason why each blogger should have to reinvent the wheel.
