This is Scott Gilbert and Nyrik Huuskonen. We strongly believe in transparency and so we are disclosing that we have included certain products and links to those products on this website that will earn us a commission for purchases you make. Our intentions are to provide you with the most comprehensive education we know how to do, and to provide you will all the tools we use and we know about to help you achieve your objectives and realize all of your goals. But please also understand that we are doing this as a for-profit business, and we suggest that you do the same unless your objectives are charitable in nature.
We promote products and services which we use, have tested, or have reason to believe would be helpful to you. We may also promote products and services which we feel are important for you to learn about to round out your education. For instance, we may teach you about, and promote, different gold authentication products, some of which we may not have used or tested. We do our best to provide you with the pros and cons so you can make an educated decision for your needs. As an example, there may be an expensive electronic tester that we have not used because it is may not fit our needs, yet it may be perfect for yours, and we may not test it because it can be cost-prohibitive. We may provide feedback, whether good or bad, for products and services that we have used.
On the other side of the coin (no pun intended), we may promote products and services without an affiliate link, meaning there will be no commission paid to us. Our intention is to ensure you have the knowledge and tools you need.
Also note that we have not been given any free products or services by any of these companies in exchange for promoting them. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions where applicable.
