Gone are the days when I used one password (p1a2ssword) on multiple accounts because it was easy to memorise. Now each of my many accounts is secured with very long and complex passwords that I cannot possibly begin to try memorising. But you know what? I have no problem remembering each because LastPass remembers them all for me for Free!

Password reusing

Many are guilty of this habit, not understanding it can have a serious impact on their security. Surveys show that 91 percent of users online are fully aware of the dangers of reusing passwords – still, about 61 percent go right ahead and do just that. When the same easy to remember passwords are used in a number of different accounts, we put ourselves at high risk of being hacked or in other ways compromised.

Let’s say someone hacks into one account, they then can assess all the others. Why not start using a password manager instead of using one password for a number of different accounts? You can begin using LastPass a password manager to generate exceptionally secure passwords to use for all your accounts.

Your online life is much simplified with LastPass generating and remembering your passwords for you. With your logins being managed by LastPass, having a unique and strong password for each of your accounts will greatly improve your security online. And the best part is, you can get started now because it’s absolutely FREE. So for your own good my friend, get LastPass now for free.

Talking Garbage!

Someone commented recently on a forum saying, “Any affiliate program that charges money and is not 100% free to join should be avoided like the plague” I call such talk “garbage”!

While I understand the reason for that position taken by the individual, one should always be circumspect so as not to throw away the baby together with the bath-water. The best way to judge whether an affiliate program is worth anything is to find out something about the character and track record of the person behind it.

Even though on a daily basis people are being scammed of their hard earned money on the internet in the IM arena, it is still not a good reason enough for you not investing in yourself. If as an aspiring internet marketer you are unwilling to invest in yourself, you are wasting your time and will remain going around in circles for years until you eventually give up. This is one of the reasons for the 95 % failure rate in the internet marketing business.

In allot of instances, (not in all) the money being charged to join an affiliate program is for your education and not so much for joining the program itself. Please note that some people join these programs just for the training and never even bother to promote any of the products there.

Yes, in this life one has to be careful in everything. But, let me repeat myself: If as an internet marketer or an aspiring one, you are not willing to invest in yourself, I can guaranty you that you will not get to anywhere and might as well remain in your 9-5 job, or whatever you might be doing otherwise.
