Despite formal education, I am not a certified financial planner. This blog’s content is an expression of my opinion only, and should not be substituted for legal or professional advice.  I encourage you to seek other resources and educate yourself before making financial decisions. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or party in question.

I started this blog to help people save money. Turns out that is a very popular topic with many companies. Some of these companies like for me to share information with my community of readers. That sharing can come in several forms. In any mention of a product or service, I will be sharing product recommendations and my personal experience as experienced by ME.

I advertise for third party ad networks. I also run affiliate programs. These affiliate hyperlinks may be included in various posts. I consult and work with corporations who may compensate me for the services I can provide to and for them. I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation.

The various forms of advertisement pay the bills and a portion is donated to charity. In saying that, I do consider the relevancy of those products, advertisements, links with the content found on Crew Dog Investing, or just my life in general. My policy is to only advertise products I deem beneficial to my readers.
