Use the LinkedIn app at your next networking event

This week I was at a Meetup with Brandon Fishburn and Jim Patton. Brandon is an entrepreneur and currently the President of the West Side Chamber of commerce. Jim is a financial advisor at West Point Financial Group.

They happen to discuss a prospect meetup event they attended and how the LinkedIn app on your phone can help with that. So, they go on to explain to me how in the LinkedIn in the app how you can use it to connect with people within the same room as you. It was so neat I told them I had to pass it along.

Forgetting your passwords? Use a password manager!

Password manager key

As security/privacy is a concern for most individuals these days in creating complex passwords for the products and services that we access online, it is increasingly becoming hard to remember your complex passwords. What is a complex password you might say? A complex password normally contains 8 or more characters containing an uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, and special symbol.

Here are a few password managers that are on my recommended list.


Bitwarden is 100% open-source software. The source code for Bitwarden is hosted on GitHub and everyone is free to review, audit, and contribute to the Bitwarden codebase They believe that being open source is one of the most important features of Bitwarden. The free account has no limitations but premium accounts (starting at $10/year) offer extras like support logging in with a YubiKey and advice on strengthening your passwords.


A password manager, digital vault, form filler, and secure digital wallet. 1Password remembers all your passwords for you to keep your account information safe. This is especially true on iOS, where the procedure is smoother than it is on other platforms. With a cost of $36/year for one user, and $60/year for the whole family, but with the many features they have to offer should justify the cost.


Dashlane is the company-wide solution for password management that everyone will actually love using. The free tier security stores your passwords securely to one device. For $5/month you can sync your passwords across multiple devices.


LastPass is my preferred password manager. I’ve been using it for a couple of years now. Upgrade to get the best of LastPass with flexible sharing and emergency access. Once you save a password in LastPass, you’ll always have it when you need it. Logging in is fast and easy. Paid options, $36/year for individuals and $48/year for families.

Final Thought

Is that we lost track of our passwords and some individuals use the same password for every account, which is a bad habit. Take advantage of these password manager tools today!
