Sometimes when we “BEGIN BIZ” recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get a commission from the vendor as a small “thank you.”
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission – so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket, not yours.
And it goes without saying that we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be sleazy, right?
So we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers.
