    You Could At Least Give Me Half

    You Could At Least Give Me Half

    In today’s episode we hear from a caller who has a friend that wants them to use their affiliate link for something and isn’t willing to split the money they make from the link. This brings up a good question: when it comes to affiliate links, what is the proper etiquette when a friend is involved? Should everything be split 50/50 or does it even matter?

Great chemistry between the two of you. As a psychologist, I much appreciate your support of therapy as a tool and your candor helps normalize therapy as an option.
