Just to make things easier and less tedious, you should assume that for every recommendation, link, or product that I mention on my blog I will receive or have received some sort of compensation (either financially or non-financially). For example, Amazon product links. For every investment or company that I mention, assume that I hold shares or some other financial instrument (for profit), or that I have financial interest in it. For example preferred shares, common stock, warrants, or corporate debt of XYZ Corp.
