Not A Disclaimer
I don't believe in affiliate links or referral programs when you're a solopreneur.
They bring into question the validity of your recommendation, because you are benefiting from it directly.
As a result, you will never see an affiliate link on 10 Carat Creations nor will I recommend a professional personally if I don't truly believe in their service or product.
My recommendations come from an unbiased place, as I make my money from the service I provide and not the products I endorse.
When I share something as "the best" it really truly is. It's not the "best option in a sea of potential monetary kickbacks."
When I'm recommended to friends or family, I want it to be because you think I'm the best and not because you anticipate compensation.
