I pledge that whatever you get from me – be it articles or books or training or whatever is going to be top quality.
It’s My Name On It
I am putting my name on this website and everything I produce. I want to make sure my name is associated with top quality material and training. I could make up a brand with a clever name and hide behind it but instead, I’m putting my actual name on what I produce.
This isn’t me being egotistical or trying to make a name for myself to get famous or something. That’s not how I am.
I’m publishing content in my name to keep myself accountable. It helps me ensure that whatever I produce will be the best it can be so that I don’t slack on something.
I’ve Bought Lots of Crap
I know crap because I’ve bought it. I’ve bought books for $9.95, $27, $47 on up. Most of them are not good. You might get a small tidbit here and there but the quality is just low. Most people don’t even bother to proofread their own stuff.
If you bought a book at Barnes & Noble for $19 that was full of grammatical errors and wasn’t even proofread, would you take it back? Yeah, you would! Well, they wouldn’t even sell something bad in the first place but you get my point.
You think that if it’s not written well and proofread, then can you trust their methods or what they say?
And remember, if it sounds too good to be true, then… it is. Don’t be a sucker.
If I suggest a product, it’s because I’ve used it and believe in it. I won’t give an affiliate link to something I don’t personally believe in or use myself. Yes, I get compensated for some links people click on here (if they buy something) but just know that I’ve purchased it myself, I use it and I believe in it. I’m not just trying to cash in. Those links are endorsements.
Regarding affiliate links, I believe in clicking on them when I go to other websites because someone else did the work of finding the resource, writing about it and promoting it, so they should get compensated for that. They did some work. I think that’s fair.
If I ever get a free product from someone in exchange for a review, I will disclose that so you know. I will also give a fair review – pointing out the good things and the bad things of that product – just for like the products I buy on Amazon.com.
I’m Not Perfect
I’m not saying I’m perfect. I will make mistakes. When that happens, know that I’m not doing it on purpose but it’s just a mistake. I’m not perfect and that’s why I have a relationship with God because I need him to help me (no, I don’t get all preachy either – this last line is that last you’ll hear about that).
Call Me On It
If you ever think that something I’m publishing is crap, then please let me know so that I can check it myself. I don’t ever want to do that or have people even think that I am, so call me on it… please!
