Legal Disclaimers

You probably hate legal disclaimers. We do too. But if we don’t include them in here, someone may think that we are their advisor just because they are reading an article we posted or a podcast they listened to. To be clear, we aren’t providing any legal or accountant advice to you as we are not an attorney’s office or CPA…legal stuff is no fun.

AD DISCLAIMER

It is possible that this Website and the resources it contains may be considered attorney or legal advice or accountant advice. However, please consult your attorney or CPA before making business decisions.

Re-posting and Translation Rights

Blue Collar Business Advisors does not permit the re-posting of our posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. Google often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so Blue Collar Business Advisors risks getting penalized for granting permission.

In addition, we don’t allow the translation and publication of our work in other languages because we simply don’t have the resources at our disposal to validate the quality of the work and/or translation.
