My goal for the JackieR | Hot and Mobile community is to offer options and inspiration for creating a healthy, independent and financially secure lifestyle. However, none of the articles, content, or interviews on this site should be seen as medical, financial, or legal advice.
Everyone’s situation is different, so, it is critical that you contact your doctor before making any changes to your diet, exercise routine, or medical plan.
Likewise, only your financial advisor is qualified to give you financial advice. Please take care of yourself and consult a licensed expert before following any of the advice on this site.
One more thing. I may post affiliate links on the site for products that I love. While I may be compensated when you purchase from one of my affiliate partners, you should rest assured that I only recommend products that I personally believe in and trust.
I didn’t start this site primarily to make money. My main goal was simply to share my thoughts with the JackieR | Hot and Mobile community and to learn from all of you. However, in 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) started to require bloggers to provide disclosures with regards to any potential hidden interests and/or biases. So, let me say a few things on this topic.
According to the FTC rules, I should make it clear whenever I receive any financial compensation related to the content on this site. So, for example, if I record an interview over dinner and the other person picks up the tab, I should mention this. Likewise, if I include an affiliate link in an article (even if I only make $0.01 per purchase), I need to mention this too.
In principle, I don’t have a problem with this. People should always be honest, right? The only challenge is that writing disclosures inside every article would add to their length and not be that interesting to you.
So, to cover my bases and save your time, please assume that for every recommendation, link, and article on this site, with me as the “Writer”, the following apply:
- Writer Got Fed
- Writer Got a Free Book
- Writer Got Cool Products
- Writer Got Paid
- Writer Friends with Member of Story
- Writer Got Stock Options
I think that covers everything!
