I do receive compensation from some of these affiliates for referring you to them. That being said, I have a great relationship with each of these companies and I have worked with some of their competitors in the past…so there’s a reason why these are the companies I recommend…they are the best. If for any reason you have a bad experience with them, please let me know because I take that feedback seriously. My business is your business, so I want (need) you to succeed.
