DISCLOSURE

My Disclosure Statement in plain English:

I created this blog to be a fun, helpful source of tips,  tricks and tools for promoting your expertise and building a media platform for your business, your brand, your cause, or yourself with online video, public speaking, social media, podcasting, and other digital media communication and/or through traditional radio and TV.  I write and edit my own posts but I also share curated content which is informative, entertaining content originally posted by others across the web.

I am careful to label a contributor’s content clearly.  I do not claim their work as my own and include their identifying links and websites, whenever possible.

There are some ad links on this blog that may earn me a little money if you buy from them. I may also mention a product or service for which I am an affiliate and will earn a small commission from the merchant if you buy it.  The potential compensation does not affect what I write about or how I say it.

The owner of this blog may be an affiliate for products or services recommended and earns a commission if you purchase those items.
