Disclosure: Please know I will never-ever recommend a product that I don’t believe in. Having said that, some of the links in the show notes (not all, but a few) are affiliate marketing links. Using those links gives me a commission, but costs you nothing more, I promise, but helps me out a bunch. Thanks for using affiliate marketing links whenever possible.
