Legal Mooring - Disclaimers, Disclosures & My Personal Guarantee
To be transparent and open, there are a few things that I, Mike Allen, want all clients and potential clients to understand about my work and relationship with other entities. Please review the disclaimers and disclosures below and note my personal guarantee that trumps them.
At the end of the day, I want my reputation to be unspoiled: "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold" (Proverbs 22:1).
I'm not an attorney or financial advisor so my recommendations and the content on this website do not constitute legal or financial advice. This website and my opinions are provided for informational and educational purposes only and are not intended as a substitute for engaging legal counsel or securing financial advice.
Put another way, nothing I say or write constitutes legal advice, financial advice, or solicitation for legal or financial services. While I try to be accurate, my input is provided to you "as is" and I make no claims, promises, or guarantees about its accuracy, completeness, or adequacy. Likewise, content becomes "out of date" over time and does not apply in all settings. Furthermore, nothing that I provide should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent legal and/or financial counsel.
I retain the option to earn referral fees from my recommended service providers and retailers. I also may use affiliate links on this site and may have affiliate relationships with my recommended service providers and retailers. Outgoing links on this site are potentially monetized via Skimlinks, a service that automatically converts outgoing links to affiliate links when possible. Other references may be made to savings available on Shopping-Bargains®, a wholly-owned property of mine.
Even though there are times I may benefit financially from certain product and service provider recommendations, I will not make a recommendation that I feel is not good for you. My reputation would not hold up if I based recommendations solely on my ability to secure a payback of some kind. Instead, I feel that such payments, when available, allow me keep my consulting fees lower and therefore serve more small businesses.
