So here’s the deal…
If you see us recommend a product or book, there’s a good chance that we’re getting paid serious cash in exchange for doing so. Or maybe just a few pennies… sometimes we take what we get. 😉
Well, there are three simple reasons.
1. It makes us money.
Some people may try to beat around the bush on this. Not us. Providing for our families is an absolute priority.
But here’s the thing. Both of us run freelance businesses that currently cover our ongoing expenses. So we don’t technically “need” income from this site.
But the more money we make here, the less time we have to spend doing client work.
And that lets us devote more energy in creating new, in-depth content here.
2. There’s a lot of great products out there.
Learning from other people is a big part of how we grow ourselves.
So if there’s something we’ve personally benefited from or like… we want to share it with you.
This lets us add value beyond just what we create here. Because ultimately, Cave of Monsters isn’t just about one tiny area. It’s about your WHOLE life.
So we’re happy to recommend other books, courses, products, and so on. And we take the time introduce you to other folks who are doing work we resonate with.
(By the way, if there are flaws or weaknesses with anything we recommend, we’ll try to be upfront about that stuff too.)
3. We don’t have to re-create what others have done.
Yes, we could create courses about health or building a business or whatever.
But it’s not worth it.
Most often, other people have already done the work already. And they’ve done it better than either of us ever could.
So it’s better for you and for us to just recommend their work.
Then we can focus on creating the types of work that we’re best at creating.
There you have it. That’s why we promote stuff as an affiliate.
As we always say though…
DO NOT blindly take our word for anything. Evaluate stuff for yourself. Discern for yourself it’s worth it for you.
And if you have questions, feel free to ask.
