I always disclose material connections with marketers. When I talk about a company or brand in a way that might influence my audience’s actions or opinions, I disclose that relationship.
If I am sent to an event, I will usually say something like, "Thanks to BRAND NAME for sending me to this event" or "I was invited to EVENT NAME."
If I am sent a product for review, I will usually say, "BRAND NAME sent me this product to review."
I have a material investment in a number of companies, most notably, Breather, Lord Hobo Brewing Company and Mercedes-Benz of Burlington. You can see my angel investments listed here: PORTFOLIO.
I promote and talk about various 3rd party products and services via affiliate marketing links. These change frequently. They are usually AMAZON.COM links. Presume that most links here have an affiliate relationship attached, but also understand that if I promote it, I use and believe in the product or service.
If you have any questions about anything I sell or promote or any other potential affiliations, please contact me.
