Although most folks visiting here fully understand BusinessNewsDesk.com is primarily financially driven, the FTC tells me I need to make it completely clear that I need to tell you I may need to make money to pay my four adult sons, two adult daughters, and three teen daughters. Almost forgot, I also have to make sure mama has some money to pay the bills, spoil the grandkids and keep food on the table for the youngins’.
First, the obvious: We are a News & Information site owned by a media content & communication agency. We publish curated news and information, as well as original articles and advertorials.
Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules are rules.
Editor’s Update: In September 2013, Troy Dooly was sanctioned by the Securities & Exchange Commission for not fully disclosing his company’s contractional involvement with Rex Venture Group, the parent company of Zeek Rewards. (SEC Sanction)

So again, this site is primarily financially driven. We put it up in 2001 originally as MLMHelpDesk.com to help educate the network marketing community. Today we focus 100% on Main Street Entrepreneurs, covering the unique and niche business ventures you’re attracted to launch.
