Transparency is a core value of mine and I hope you appreciate it too.
Helping others simplify and organize their lives comes with its challenges. But it’s never a challenge to value the trust you put in me and what I create.
Any income generated from this website goes directly to keeping it ad-free, reinvesting in its content and infrastructure, donated to Value of Simple’s partner charities, or helps my family thrive within our minimalist means.
But trust and transparency goes beyond money and applies to all aspects here.
No Tricks, No Tomfoolery: How Your Information Is Gathered and Used
- Any personal information you provide – like your name or email address – is used only by Value of Simple to communicate directly with you.
- I will never gather information about you without you opting in and knowing you’re providing it
- Information provided is used to help me know this community more and better meet its needs. I can only create, maintain and distribute this (mostly free) content by understanding who is a part of the community.
- I do not share personally identifiable information with affiliates or vendors who assist in helping me provide content, products, and services
- I do not share your information with or sell it to marketers
My Personal Commitment to You
If I endorse or recommend someone’s product or service, it’s because I’ve personally used it or firmly believe it will have value for you. Any recommendation I might make or any affiliate link I might place requires absolutely no obligation from you. I repeat: You have zero obligation to ever buy something through a link on this website.
As I strive to always be transparent and honest with you, know that Value of Simple can’t exist without the support you provide (moral, technical, financial, or otherwise).
My Products and Services
I’ll make no claim that any product or service I directly provide is going to be life altering for most of you. While maintaining my sense of modesty, I can honestly say that what I create is based on a level of knowledge and skill that can be very valuable to you.
Whatever form they might take, from a blog post to a podcast to an eBook or rockin’ video, my maximum effort for your maximum impact is always the goal.
If you have questions, suggestions, or comments about these you can always contact me about them.
Affiliates and Affiliations
There are some phenomenal people offering phenomenal things on the Internet right now. Highlighting them, regardless of financial gain, is important and I will constantly call attention to them.
Like everything in life though, your experience may vary. So please don’t spend money on something you feel won’t truly help you reach your goals.
Know that I’m incredibly selective about other people’s products and services and will only highlight one after careful thought. If it’s value is even slightly in question, you won’t see it referenced here.
Note: If there is a link on this website that leads you to another website where you could buy something, you should assume this is an affiliate link. An affiliate link means I may earn a small commission if you purchase something on the website you’re sent to.
Value of Simple is entirely reader-supported and any small amount earned through an affiliate link helps keep this ad-free. Keep in mind the vast majority of links on this site are not affiliate links.
