When appropriate, Sovereign, LLC refers interested clients to third party healthcare providers that maintain their own license, board certification, liability, etc. as relevant to that vendor. It is the client’s decision to pursue third parties. Sovereign, LLC is not liable or responsible for a client’s decision to seek third party services. Sovereign, LLC is not employed by, compensated by, or officially partnered or affiliated with any third-party healthcare provider, doctor, or other entity in a similar industry.
Reviews and Product Placement/Sponsorship.
From time to time, I may partner with brands or products that I am genuinely passionate about in exchange for product or compensation. These may be featured in blog posts, videos, newsletters, e-mails, and/or programs. Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. If I ever interview someone and they pay for lunch, I would need to specify this, as I would if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me zero cents. If someone gives me a sweet t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, ditto. Disclaimers all over. This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. To cover my bases and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, person, product or service that I mention, I was compensated with: Huge stacks of money, Stock options, Food, Clothing, Goodie bags, First class travel, Limo rides and/or Luxury vacations. (The above was adapted from Tim Ferris as I appreciate the humor regarding our ever-litigious society.)
