01. Affiliate links & Ads
Some, but not all links on this site may be affiliate links. These links help the upkeep of the site. They cost you no extra to purchase through. I try to indicate when links are affiliate ones, but I’m a human being and I may forget. When in doubt, assume the relationship.
Nothing is every shared on this site for the money. We are funded through our contributors and affiliate links.
We try to be as open and as transparent as possible, without gifting commercially sensitive information.
There is no advertising on this site. There are no banners advertising big brand products popping up all over the place.
Contributors are encouraged to invite you to join their email list. Their list may contain affiliate links & ads.
02. Earning Disclaimers
I don’t know how much the contributors earn. I do not check their claims in their content – they’re responsible for this. Should you start to work with someone then you need to do your due diligence beforehand.
I actively discourage content that promises 6 figure incomes but is vague about the journey. Should something slip through the net, then by all means get in touch and we’ll review the content.
Earning reports and disclosure around incomes are discouraged on the site.
I wish I was here to talk about the eating kind, but we call them Biscuits in Europe. Cookies also mean little files of information. I think they need a better name. The biscuit variety sounds so much better and
- Your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size
- If you have already replied to a survey pop-up that asks you if the content was helpful or not (so you won’t be asked again)
- Facebook, Active Campaign and Analytics tracking including PayPal, Google, Linkedin, Pinterest, Twitter… These are generally called “marketing” cookies.
Also, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.
Enabling marketing cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better content experience. I write based on what you’re looking for and then use the cookies to tell me if I have it right. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended. The cookies only give me a broad overview of who you are, and they tend to group things together like 61% of the readers of this site are female. I don’t know the individual person’s details but I do know they are more likely to be female.
The marketing cookies help me connect with you in other ways. Say you look at a course page and you get distracted. I may post an advert as a reminder and say “hey come and look at this again”. I may remind you to download a gift, or I may try and connect with you this way to get new logins to you.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally, it can’t tell me where you live or your bank account details, and they won’t send me money or do anything other than feeding me tempting little morsels about whether my content is reaching the right people or not. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org.

If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
04. Your Rights, Our Rights and the Right Rights
GDPR gives you some new rights. I’m not quite sure how they work (I don’t know anyone who is 100% sure yet), but if you contact me asking me to remove you, I’ll do that. If you re-
Our business is registered with the Information Commissioner and various other places. If I’m instructed to hand over data, I will seek legal advice, and then do as advised. I’d prefer not to be put in this position so make sure you contact me with what needs doing and give us reasonable time to do it. Please remember, sometimes email goes in spam, and to follow up if you don’t get a reply although I’ll do my best to fish you out of the spam filter.
