Transparency is important. You should know that while I enjoy running Freelance Transformation and helping others, I do earn money through this website and its affiliated online properties, social media channels, etc.
Examples of such compensation can include:
- Selling Products Directly
- Affiliate Commissions
- Receiving consulting engagements and other opportunities as a result of work published here.
For example this website frequently publishes links to books on Amazon that are recommended either by me or by guests that I have interviewed. When you buy a book from Amazon using the link provided on this website, my company receives a commission for having made this referral.
In addition to financial compensation, it is possible for a blogger to be compensated indiectly such as free products, passes to events, luxury cars (*hint* *hint* Tesla), and so on.
There is no guarantee that you will be able to earn any money through the advice offered by Freelance Transformation, on this website or on any related properties or products.
The ability to earn money or to achieve any other result is heavily dependent on the person using this advice. That's the harsh truth.
But if you do try any advice here, I would love to know your results (good or bad). Contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know!
