**Because we live in the times we do, I need to provide the following disclaimer:
Guess what? If you click on any of the links that I’ve provided, it may be a link to someone who will give me a commission if you buy something from their site. That means that I might get paid if you click on that link. And the reason why I’m telling you this is because I want to be upfront with you, and because it’s illegal not to. (So, you know, right side of the law and all.) That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good causes: Things like reinvesting in this business to bring you even better resources, and quite possibly at least one Sunday trip to the zoo. Because...zoos are a fun place to hang out with my family. ALSO... these links are SUGGESTIONS not necessarily recommendations! In my humble opinion, these are products and services I have knowledge of or trust to be of high quality, whether an affiliate relationship is in place or not. That does NOT mean I am responsible for their practice, outcomes, or the relationship you build with them. That is all up to you and your relationship with them!
