This website is a not-for-profit educational website owned by Rick Van Ness at GrowthConnection, LLC. It is not listed as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization nor are there any provisions to accept any contributions. The project has separate accounting, and any income is applied towards the direct expenses of running the FinancingLife.org website. I volunteer all my time and finance the remaining needs with my own money–although I hope that it will become self-supporting someday.
I donate my time to create the website and its content but there are many additional expense involved with creating the video tutorials and hosting the website. My goal is to earn enough money through my own book sales and also the Amazon affiliate program that I can keep the site free from advertising.
With the Amazon affiliate program, this site makes a few percent from what you spend on Amazon if you get there from my links, but this does not cost you any more.
Any relevant conflicts of interest on this blog and site will be fully disclosed.
Your privacy is also important to me. I promise to keep your email address confidential.
