I wanted to name this page “Really Cool Legal Stuff That You Totally Want To Know” but that was a little too long so I went with Disclaimer instead.
1. Affiliate Links – Sometimes I will post links to things you can buy and sometimes I will get a thank you payment for that referral. What you need to know is that I only share things I love and I often share all kinds of things whether I am an affiliate or not. I will always mention any affiliate link in that specific post.
You can find an affiliate disclosure statement example on this post: How Christine Kane Taught Me to Uplevel My Life. And it goes something like this: (The videos are all free; however, if you click this link and buy something from Christine someday, I will get a thank-you-for-referring-someone-fabulous commission with a side of really good karma and some dark, delicious chocolate. Actually, I try to have dark, delicious chocolate as often as possible, so that would happen anyway.)
I love books and have bought everything from books to lipsticks to housewares through Amazon.com, so I decided to join their affiliate program and create my own ModernMarried store. That means whenever I link to something I love on Amazon, I will usually attach an affiliate link to it. I have lots of old blog posts on this site that link to Amazon that might not be affiliate links. I will be working on updating those links, but whenever it’s an affiliate link, it will be identified in the body of the post.
Amazon’s Official Notice goes like this –
Royal Life Design, LLC its website, ModernMarried.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
I am also happy to answer questions about any of the stuff I refer because it’s usually helped me make my life simpler, happier or better in some way which is really the best reward isn’t it?
2. Coaching, Advice, Recommendations and Therapy – The way I try to explain coaching besides my “What is a Life Coach?” post (which you should totally read by the way!) is that if you are playing football and you want to up your game, your coach helps you do that, if you are on the field and break your leg and blood is gushing from your body, a doctor helps you fix that. Two totally different things. See?
If there is a metaphorical broken leg somewhere in your life – I totally recommend therapy because that’s what it’s for. If you are specifically looking for marriage therapy, I would suggest looking for a Gottman-Trained Therapist as their methodologies are time-tested and their certification process is super rigorous and they talk about things like Love Maps and Emotional Bank Accounts – which seem like really good ideas to me.
On this blog I write about tips to live a better life, create an awesome marriage and do all kinds of things.
Any results in your life, business, marriage, hula-hoop career, etc. are going to vary wildly based on your own life experience and combination of thoughts, feelings and actions. While I wish I could wave a magic wand and cure the world of bad-hair days, I can’t. I am also unable to guarantee any specific results if you use any of my suggested tools, tips, strategies or random love-rants.
As we are loving, soulful people on this journey of life together, let’s agree that in the spirit of self responsibility, you understand that your decisions belong to you – you own them, just as my decisions belong to me and I own all of those. Including the time I wore a red dress to a black and white party which turned out to be a really bad idea.
I do not offer legal, medical, psychological or financial advice. And the only thing I know how to bake comes in a box. In case you were wondering ;-).
ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER REGARDING COACHING SERVICES –
I’m an expert at what I do. I’ve got the street cred. The experience. The skills. And the qualifications.
However, we should probably give a group nod to the fact that I am not a licensed psychologist or health care professional, and my services don’t replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals.
(Though I do own a pretty impressive brown leather couch, thankyouverymuch.)
With that comes the standard eye-glaze inducing disclaimer that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of our coaching efforts and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series, and my comments about the outcome are expressions of (my very personal) opinion only.
I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to coach you, and I’ll do everything in my power to help.
3. Intellectual Property –
Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for further clarification.
I make every effort to quote and link to the sources of every inspiring thing I share. If you read something here and own it and it’s not linked to you, please contact me and I am happy to give credit where it’s due and grateful for the opportunity of a do-over (so important in life and marriage!).
Quotes and Articles –
I also love it when people quote me, so feel free to do so. Short quotes or anything that would fall under the best accepted practices for fair us are A-Okay by me. If you want to re-publish a whole article, or a more extensive quote, please use the Contact Form to let me know what you are interested in as I grant reproduction rights on a case by case basis. Sound fair? That’s the idea!
For those short quotes mentioned above – if you link back to my site that would be super and if you let me know you did it I will send you electronic hugs and pretend cookies (best kind, no calories!).
If in doubt – use my handy dandy baking test – the size of a brownie or a cookie is just fine, once you get to cakes and pies contact me to request permission. See? Easy, peasy and delicious!
And in the category of My Lawyer Made Me….please note the following from our Terms & Conditions: You may not modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, create derivative works from, distribute, display, reproduce or perform, or in any way exploit in any format whatsoever any of the Site or Service Content or intellectual property, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent.
