Disclosure & FTC Guidelines
We accept advertising and sponsorship opportunities that are a best fit for our audience and mission. We disclose our sponsor relationships and our opinions in reviews are always our own. We work with brands, organizations and sites to create customized programs, campaigns and events that adhere to our high editorial standards and your marketing and consumer-outreach goals. Please contact us directly to get the conversation started.
In the interest of full disclosure, please note that some links related to recommended products, courses and workshops, programs and services, and other items that you see on this site may take you to their purchase pages, where I am a member of Amazon or similar affiliate programs, and may therefore earn a nominal percentage of the purchase price of those products. You are never under obligation to purchase. I am not otherwise paid to link to these items. I only list products, courses and workshops, programs and services that I authentically recommend in real life. If I do accept payment to review anything you might read about on Single Mom Nation or its affiliated social platforms, I will note it per FTC Guidelines and my own belief in transparency and trust with you, the reader. The review will reflect my honest opinion, I promise.
