Anxiety Talk is not primarily financially driven. Anxiety Talk was developed in 2012 to build a supportive and encouraging community and provide information, advice, and resources to help individuals cope with and overcome their anxiety..
The FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
First, the obvious: I am an author of several noteworthy self-improvement and self-development books, products, and programs in addition to serving as the founder and Editor of Anxiety Talk. All material that I developed is published by Evolution 2 Media, Inc.
Second, the not so obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone at Starbucks and they pay for my coffee, I would need to specify this. If a psychologist sends me a pre-release copy of their new book and it’s visible in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. How fun.
This would be amazingly tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers like you. But rules are rules.
Rather than worry about who paid for every cup of green tea when we talk to someone interesting and to ensure your experience with Anxiety Talk is as pleasant as possible, I prefer to instead ask you to assume that for every recommendation, product, or link on this site or sent to you in any form on behalf of Anxiety Talk, the following holds true:
The author or I may make or have made some money, or received other compensation, so we can feed our families and continue doing things like building resources like Anxiety Talk, among other things, like buying lip balm. We may have even gotten a meal or beverage out of the deal. Oh, the scandalous horror.
