Introduction
I build and lead online communities for Experian.

I host a weekly Google+ Hangout every Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET where we discuss personal finance topics. Join us!

I love writing
I started blogging in 1999 when blogs were more like online diaries. I started all types of blogs over the years, but lately write about student productivity, social media, Google+, and financial education.  I' also enjoy writing about community building and ways to lead successful online communities.

Here are some articles I've written:

Social Media
Personal Finance & Credit 
Student Productivity & Education
I love sharing Google+ tips
I manage a Google+ tips page to help people and businesses with using Google+.  Circle it if you want to get Google+ tips and tricks added to your stream.

I manage Google+ communities
I really enjoy meeting others that like talking about social media. I moderate the "LinkedIn for Business" community and would love for you to join. We're discussing ways to leverage LinkedIn to increase leads and sales. 

I love to share.
I love to share articles and media that interests me -- articles on design, business, food, art, music, technology, science, writing, theology, social media,  and pure wackiness. If there's a certain circle of content you're interested, just let me know and I'll add you.

There were over 490,000 identity theft complaints reported to the FTC last year. If you're a victim of identity theft, report it: https://www.identitytheft.gov/

Here are 5 ways to protect yourself from identity theft:

1. Don’t access financial information or shop online using public wifi (or unsecured network)

When logged-in to public wifi, hackers have the ability gather your data. It’s almost like they are looking over your shoulder. This is why it’s important for you to avoid using financial apps or making any payment transactions when on public wifi or any unsecured network.

2. Don’t give out your social security number or any financial information to people calling, emailing, or texting you.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of thieves trying to gather your financial information from you pretending to be a charity, debt collector, bank, government agency, or even family member. There are even some people pretending to be a business trying to award you a financial prize in return for some of your personal info.

As a rule of thumb, never provide your financial information to anyone who contacts you. You can research the companies online to get the real phone number — or find out if it’s a scam by typing in the business name along with words like: complaints, reviews, scams, etc.

3. Shred any mail or documents that have personal information (e.g. financial info, health docs) instead of just tossing in trash.

One of the simplest ways to prevent identity theft is using a shredder. Cut up old credit cards and any documentation that has personal info about you or family members that could be used by identity thieves.

The average American household spends $6,887 on food.
The first step to lowering your food budget is meal planning. Plan out your entire week (or month) before you hit the store so you can purchase only the things you need. Meal planning will ensure you avoid wasting food and will keep you focused on only purchasing foods you need. You can also meal plan around best food deals at local markets in your area to save even more money. https://youtu.be/TcHhC4TfKIw
