    Here are some things that I’ve helped out with or utilized friend’s abilities:

    Lots of us have heard about phone call scams, e-mail scams and other types of fraud. I think most people are pretty cautious about giving away personal information but, are you cautious with your social media accounts? Fraudsters are looking for people who don’t use enhanced privacy settings and share too much information on social networking sites to commit fraud.

    Friend request from someone you don’t know well, or at all? Don’t accept it! Fraudsters will send friend requests to get access to your information. Share your personal information (home address, phone number, employers, vacation timing etc.) on social media? Not a good idea, since fraudsters are looking for anything they can get a hold of to commit identity theft, romance or emergency scams.

    I read blogs like most people read books. Twitter and Bloglovin are the two main ways I follow my favourite blogs and keep up to date on posts. One of my favourite blog sites is Gentwenty, it’s a site that has many different writers focusing on career, health, relationships, finance and anything else that might affect a 20 something.

    I came across an article yesterday that struck me and I felt like it was worth discussion. There is a fun little quote going around lately and the article talks in depth and gives a good perspective of why we should “stop the glorification of busy”.
