Legal Stuff and My Personal Credo: In effort to be 100% transparent, I may have an affiliate link attached to this video. That means if you go buy the product(s) mentioned I may get paid by the product creator. However, I do NOT make these videos for the sole purpose of getting a lousy affiliate commission from a vendor. I make these videos in a sincere hope that I can help you become at least as successful as I am and I pledge never recommend ANY product or service that I personally do not believe in myself. Take that for what it’s worth and if it bothers you in any way then just don’t watch my videos. Cheers!
