5 Things To Never Carry In
Your Wallet (or Purse)

Do you even know all the things that are in your wallet or purse right now? Here are five items to look for and remove to limit your risk of identity theft if your wallet is lost or stolen:
  • Multiple credit cards. Carry just one card or possibly a debit card. Don't carry specific credit cards (like a department store) or gift cards unless you're going on a shopping trip. Thieves often use them without having to show identification.
    Good idea: Do a wallet inventory and photocopy all the cards you own so you can report their loss and replace them if necessary.

  • Your social security number. With this most important key to your identity and your name, thieves can do everything from opening new accounts to filing false tax returns.
    Good idea: Memorize your number. If you have a Medicare card, copy your card and black out the numbers except for the final four.

  • Your passport. If you're going overseas you must travel with it, but that doesn't mean you have to keep carrying it around.
    Good idea: Carry a photocopy and leave the original in your hotel lockbox.

  • Checks. Your checks show your bank routing and account numbers, and thieves often sign them and get away with it.
    Good idea: If you must carry checks, take just what you might need for that day. Also try online banking to pay your bills.

  • Password list. No one can remember all of them, I know.
    Good idea: Use an encrypted tool to store your password like the SplashID mobile app or LastPass.com for your computer.

Tap Into 200 Million LinkedIn
Users To Grow Your Business

Are you on LinkedIn.com? This popular social network for professionals has over 200 million registered users in all business categories. Here are three ways to proactively expand your professional network and make your business more successful.
  1. Get your company seen by LinkedIn members. Have a profile for both yourself and your business. To be high on the list of profiles that appears when someone searches for your business, use keywords in your profile multiple times. If you own an architectural firm, for example, repeat words such as "architecture," "architecture design" or "building architecture." (Two or three terms with the key phrase is enough.) If you do this correctly, your LinkedIn profile will also come up high in a Google search.

  2. Connect with prospects by using Advanced People Search. Choose an industry (e.g. Architecture & planning) where you could find customers who might need your services. The search also will show you people you know who know the people who come up in the results. Use the people you know for recommendations and introductions. Also, ask satisfied LinkedIn members who are customers to write recommendations about your company.

  3. Find your next great employee or vendor. Post a job on LinkedIn (you'll have to pay a fee). Better yet, enter the skills you're looking for in an employee (or the resources you need from a vendor) in Advanced People Search. Contact the people and vendors who come up and see if they're interested in working for you.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  Are there any secrets to finding the right home at the right price with the right financing?

A.  Lots of homebuyers waste time and money by not doing their homework before going home shopping. Here's what you should do:
  • Analyze your NEEDS before you start looking. Make a list, including price range, size, general location, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.

  • Know what you WANT in your next home. List the features you'd like to have and rank them in terms of importance. If you have a spouse, set your priorities as a couple.

  • Understand how much home you can afford. Become familiar with your "payment-to-income ratio" and your "debt-to-income ratio," two guides bankers and mortgage lenders use to determine how much loan you can afford.
