Privacy Policy

Last updated March 11, 2020

“Hey, I just updated my Privacy Policy,” said everyone on the Internet. We live in an interesting time where our personal data is mined intentionally and unknowingly by a variety of organizations. This is my attempt to let you know what I am doing to build a relationship with the people I want to help, the tools I use to do that, and how I handle that information. Thank you to Stephen Warley of Life Skills That Matter for providing an amazing template for this page on his disclosure page.

Who I Want to Help

Creative entrepreneurs, leaders, and professionals who create work for other people to consume in a variety of mediums, from free products to paid client work and everything in between. That doesn’t mean that I won’t work with organizations who don’t fit this description, it just means that I’m choosy about whose check I cash and why we are working together. While I can’t prevent minors from reading this site, it is my intent to help those who are 18 and older, looking to build a sustainable and profitable business.

Content Disclaimer

I’m not a licensed therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or life coach. While I may talk about issues pertaining to mental health in my coaching services, newsletters, or podcasts, I cannot diagnose or prescribe what other people should do for themselves. If you need mental health services, I encourage you to find a resource in your local area who can give you the help needed.

All of the information on this site is based upon my own research from books, blogs, podcasts, interviews, published articles, and personal experience.

I make reasonable efforts to make sure the information is accurate and up-to-date, but I do not warrant that information is complete, reliable, error-free, or current. Information changes fast and I can’t always keep up to date, but as soon as changes are made known to me, I will review the content in question by verifying, updating, or removing it from this site.

Everything on this site is my opinion. Your mileage may vary. Whether you are looking to make big changes to your life, start projects that can stress your life, or take risks, do your own research, use your own judgment, seek the advice of mentors and experts who you trust to help make your decision.

This site may contain links to content from other websites and products for sale. I do not make money from any of the linked content unless directly specified. I provide these links as a convenience and do not imply endorsement of those third-party websites.

Owner contact email:


Your email will never be used for any other purpose than to send you the information you requested, service updates or by opting into an email newsletter or course provided by Chris Martin Studios. Under no circumstance will it be shared with third-parties.

You can easily opt out of any future emails by clicking the “unsubscribe link” at the bottom of any email newsletter sent.

One more thing, giving me your business card is not consent for me adding you to my newsletter. 🙂

Making Money By Helping Others & Producing Content

I believe in building a sustainable and profitable business for myself and helping others to do the same. I’m not out to make as much money as possible, but one of my missions is to help others see the value in creative work. Translation: I charge for the work I do.

I want to keep things simple for you and me. With coaching, my rates are listed and paid in full prior to the session. Video production, podcasting, copywriting, and other creative services are priced according to the scope of the project.

No Advertising or Affiliate Marketing

I’m not a huge fan of advertising or affiliate marketing. I want to keep my services front and center and not get overwhelmed with advertising. While I may have sponsors for future podcasts, that will be selective based upon building a community and serving the needs of that community.
