Before we get into the legal and formal standpoint on links, reviews, and commissions, please note that Hard Work Theory does not take money in exchange for reviews or articles. Be aware that you might not like the result if you submit something for evaluation. All reviews are done with honesty and integrity; so if your product or food is sub-par, we are going to tell people!

You’ve undoubtedly heard these terms before, but to make things clear, if you click on any of the links on this site, we may get a commission. This is how we buy more equipment, go to locations to review, pay for the service. We do not consider how much money we make from affiliate links, advertising, or other sales when ranking locations or equipment.

*This site, along with our social media accounts, are to express our opinions and thoughts on various things, mostly food, online shopping and outdoor gear. Sometimes we are sent items for review from companies to try out and post on our social accounts. Many times, we get to keep the items and, in some cases, even offer them to our followers in a contest, raffle, or giveaway promotion. Sometimes, we also have a chance to make a commission if our recommendation results in a sale. 

*On this website and some additional accounts, we also use affiliate marketing and links to websites such as Amazon, Shareasale, PepperJam and Consumer Junction, Awin and others which can also result in getting compensated. 

However, be assured, our mantra still holds true, we only recommend products that pass our personal scrutiny!
