This blog is not primarily financially driven. We started in 2015 to build a community of people that want to define and achieve success on their own terms.

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

First, the obvious: We are marketing consultants, Matt is the Founder and I am the Creative Director at Elisha Consulting. Here are is our client list

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if we interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Also, if we use an Amazon link that gets us 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets us 0 cents. If someone gives us a comfy t-shirt with a logo and we wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for us and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules. To cover all requirements and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product we use (on the blog, social media accounts, and newsletter), the following all hold true:
