Meet The Sleep Shop Owner
My name is Courtney Floyd and I created the sleep shop to educate myself and my friends about the importance of getting a good night's sleep. From there, The Sleep Shop grew.
I am in my 30s and I have already went through a rough period struggling with anxiety and depression that stemmed from not getting good rest. This took a major toll on me through my early 20s and I knew I had to make a change.
I sought help from a few professionals and in doing so, I learned a lot about sleep and how your mattress and pillow play a critical role.
The most important thing I learned?
NOT ALL SLEEP IS CREATED EQUALLY...
Fast forward to now.
I love running The Sleep Shop. It gives me the opportunity to test a variety of sleep products and help people at the same time. It shouldn't take buying 2 or 3 mattresses to finally find one that fits your needs, and your sleep style. I have a true passion for helping people get quality sleep. However, this is something you should know.
Running The Sleep Shop Isn't Free.
Running a website can be very time consuming and expensive. On top of the cost of content, images, server space, and purchasing products to review, the time investment is huge.
The Sleep Shop is my business, and I love it. In order to pay for the expenses, The Sleep Shop uses referral and affiliate links. When you follow one of our links to purchase a product, we then get a percentage of the sale. Using these links does not cost you anything additional. The links simply generate us commission for bringing that company a buyer. You pay the same amount for a product whether you use our links, or navigate to the website to purchase a product yourself.
We put forth our best effort to keep our reviews as unbiased as possible. Some of our reviews are based off of real world tests, others are based off of in-depth research. Some times we buy the products ourselves, other times manufacturers will send us free samples.
Nobody can pay us to be featured on The Sleep Shop. We will never endorse a product we do not believe in. We do not accept paid write-ups. We do not accept bribes to review a product in a positive light. Even products we get for free are reviewed with pros and cons to give you an unbiased source of information.
At its core, we are supported by our readers, so we will always put you guys first.
