Description

Identity theft is often not the result of some high-tech scam. It is frequently because someone digs through your trash and finds documents with personal information. I start this episode explaining ways you haven’t heard before to protect yourself from low-tech but highly effective dumpster divers who want to steal your identity. https://www.rd.com/list/shred-documents/

It is amazing how people in your life influence you in ways you don’t realize. The things you do, the decisions you make and the thoughts you think can all be heavily but unknowingly influenced by the people around you. Dr. Nicholas Christakis is a physician, sociologist and author of the book, Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives (http://amzn.to/2EDBy1c) and he explains how this phenomenon works and why it is so important.

People complain a lot about the post office but they really do a pretty good job. And the fact is you can do some things that will help speed up the mail and save you time and money. Listen as I explain. https://www.rd.com/advice/saving-money/mail-carrier-wont-tell-you

Ever struggle to do something, like carry too many grocery bags – and someone offers to help and you say, “No thanks, I got it.”? Why? You need help, someone offers – why in the world would you decline? But we do it all the time. It seems that people just don’t like asking for help. Nora Klaver, author of the book, Mayday! Asking for Help in Time of Need (http://amzn.to/2EDT0Tq) explains why it is that we are so reluctant to ask for help and why accepting help is often a much better decision for so many reasons.
