Some of the ways I earn money are:
  1. I have affiliate relationships with a number of companies like Amazon. If you click these links and make a purchase, I receive a commission, even if you buy a different item or buy an item days or weeks later.
  2. There may be sidebar ads where I am compensated by the volume of views or clicks for each ad.
  3. I may be paid or materially compensated by companies for advertising their products. I only review products I personally approve and believe in and I try to clearly disclose when I am being compensated or not.
  4. One of my primary sources of compensation is the sale of my own Ebooks, consulting services, and courses as well as those from other influencers. I clearly indicate what items you’ll receive and who is providing them. No other guarantee or warranty is implied or given.
  5. I also contract with individuals or businesses to do Pinterest work on their behalf. I usually have a waiting list for these services.

We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites. Advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, readers in the Pacific Northwest who read certain types of articles). Also, some third-party cookies may provide them with information about you (such as the sites where you have been shown ads or demographic information) from offline and online sources that they may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.
