In case there was ever any doubt.
.
When someone you follow on the Internet has something to sell - whether it's a book, a program, a product they created or one they choose to promote as an affiliate - it's not about the thing being sold.
.
It's never about that. And you'd be wise to only follow and support those who you simply like and trust based on whatever it is that makes you like and trust them. Hopefully their past ability to help you in some way and their integrity in doing so with recommendations that meet a certain standard of efficacy build that relationship.
.
But it seems that a lot of folks who think in a scarcity, "have not," or victim mindset translate the fact that someone might recommend that you buy something to mean that they're "shilling" or "pushing" that thing.
.
False. (Read in your best Dwight Schrute.)
.
It takes YEARS to gain trust with an audience of folks who you likely don't know personally. And the truth is, most of the people who follow someone on the Internet have never even purchased something to support their work. BUT, if someone (like me) on the Internet recommends something that you can buy (or not, no one is forcing you), you'd better believe that it's something we LOVE and USE and BELIEVE IN ourselves. If we have the integrity you know us for, then that's where we stand.
.
This is our livelihood. We need to earn money. We can do that via products or sponsorships or both. But we have to earn a living somehow or we can't do this work.
.
So, the next time someone you love to follow has a recommendation of something that you might want to purchase to help you (or maybe it isn't for you *that* time) solve a problem, instead of feeling like it's about selling something, realize that it's simply about us wanting to help solve problems. Make life easier. Show you exactly the solution we use to solve that same problem in our own lives.
.
We don't wake up in the morning because of something we sell. We wake up in the morning excited because we can help you solve problems, make life easier, and help you to live a better life. That's all.

  • I cherish these little moments. As we watch Beauty and the Beast this morning cuddled up on the couch, Cooper leans over and says "Mommy, I love you! Wanna hold my hand?" Heart exploded ๐Ÿ’— I will hold your hand forever my little buddy, forever.
  • Have you been wanting to try Beautycounter? Well, now is the perfect time to do it! I'm doing this limited time offer of a FREE charcoal bar for any order of $100 (before t&s) or more!! This is one of the most popular items and my favorite thing that got me to love Beautycounter!! Link in profile! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  • Day 1 of Cooper's spring break is a rainy and cold one! Decided to make the best of it by going to the arcade! Now we are watching Trolls underneath a warm, cozy blanket and eating his favorite, Chick-fil-A! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  • Happy 6th Anniversary babe! This picture captures you perfectly. No matter what the circumstances are, you always fight through it and make it look easy. You hardly ever complain and are the most unselfish husband and father that would do anything for your family. I love you more today than I did then and I will love you even more tomorrow. โค
