I’ve been on social long enough to know what’s real and what’s fake….or do I?

These troublesome people are like parasites that leach on to their victims. Easy money is to be made on uninformed people. Consequently, we are the bait and they are the phish. What can we do about it?

The easiest way to avoid these types of scams is to close ALL Your Social media accounts. Well for most of us that’s not going to happen. We enjoy enter action with our family and friends. Never before in history have we been so connected. That’s great for scammers and bad actors.

So, what do we do? Second best thing is to get educated. No you don’t need to go back to school. On average we spend 147 minutes on social media a day. Use some of that time reading things worthwhile. Thus, spend less time on things that might draw you into a scam.

Let say we start off by cutting the time in half. Spend more time expanding your mind with things you can enjoy with family and friends in person. Fitness of the mind is always a good thing for the body.

Somethings I do for my mind. I enjoy learning new things that I can use to help people. So, I’m enrolled in a few different online classes that I can take whenever I’m available. Yes, it’s work related but it’s also relaxing for me.

Although work education is my primary focus I also like physical activities outdoors. The weather is getting better and lots to do outdoors. Go for a bike ride, hike or climb a mountain ⛰️.

Go big or go even bigger, life is too short the end it with a legacy with I got thousands of online followers. Ask yourself before it’s too late who from my followers list would come to my funeral if I died tomorrow? Something to think about isn’t it?
