This website is primarily financially driven. It was designed to build community and share vital information while earning an income.
That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires websites to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
First, the obvious: RideTheGroove.com provides investment, personal development, and consulting advice.
Second, the less obvious: If I / We interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I / We would need to specify this, as I / We would if I / We use an Amazon link that gets 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets 0 cents. If someone gives I / Us a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I / We wear it in a photo, ditto. Disclaimers all over.
To cover I / Our ass and preserve your online experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I / We use, the following all hold true:
Please feel free to use the text and images of this earnings disclaimer with proper attribution. There is no reason why each ebusiness owner should have to reinvent the wheel.

Additional Ramblings about Disclaimers and Un·scru·pu·lous Humans:
To comply with the recent FTC ruling about online authors getting paid to write stuff, I / We offer the following disclosure policy. If you're reading My / Our content, you should assume the following:
* I / We make money from every product or service offered via this website. If I'm / We're not making money from every shared experience, then it was an oversight on My / Our part and it will be corrected soon.
* Every link on this website is a paid link. If it is not a paid link, then it was an oversight on My / Our part and it will become a paid link soon.
* Every product I / We write about or recommend on this website has a good reason to be shared, and in addition, I / We most likely make money from doing so. If I / We didn't make money from it, then it was an oversight on My / Our part and it will be corrected soon.
* I / We make money from every tweet I send out on Twitter. If I / We didn't make money on the tweet, then it was an oversight on My / Our part and it will be corrected soon.
* If you email or provide feedback for Me / Us, all of the information in your email / feedback is Mine / Ours to do with as I / We please, such as exploit for financial profit, use as blackmail, or quote on our websites. If you do not like this, then why in the world do you open your mouth or type ANYTHING in the first place? What goes around comes around. The same goes true for submitted pictures!
* The T-shirts you see Me / Us wear at trade shows gets Me / Us paid for wearing them. If I / We didn't get paid to wear them, then it means I / We ran out of paid shirts and had to wear a free one. In which case, I / We will go to the company that gave Me / Us the free shirt and ask them to sponsor it.
* If something on the Net is making a lot of money, you can bet I / We will be in on it. If I'm / We're not in on it, then it was an oversight on My / Our part and it will be corrected soon.
* Just because I / We get paid to share things, tweet, wear T-shirts, etc. does NOT mean I / We will give you or your company a positive review, blog post or endorsement. As a matter of fact, chances are pretty high that I / We might slam you if I / We think you need a kick in the pants.
Hopefully, the above statement clears up any misunderstanding you may have about My / Our webpages or Twitter tweets or any other joyful ramblings / inventions we put our minds to. If you have any questions, you can contact Me / Us via the contact page on SBP. Just remember what I / We said about emails / feedback.
This disclosure statement was stolen then modified from John Chow's epic rant.
Yes, I / We may make ca$h on this disclosure page as well! $$ MONEY means RELATIONSHIPS $$
