Password Management

Since 2016, I’ve used Dashlane to manage passwords on all my devices. Here’s the thing:

KeePass works, sure- but managing it is a pain. Dashlane lets you do so much more – like letting you know when a password has been compromised or re-used. It works on mobile, which is huge for me these days.

But one of the coolest things about KeePass is that you can share passwords. This is great for IT teams or working with contractors because you can make it read-only to the person you’re sharing with, and revoke access at any point. Multi-Factor Authentication can be used to secure the whole thing which is also very cool.

Needless to say, if you asked me what my password is for a lot of sites, I wouldn’t know off the top of my head- and that’s a GOOD thing.

So here’s the deal. Try Dashlane for free. If you buy it- you get $20 off your first year…. but you know what? They give me $20 off too!

ShareFile

I’m a ShareFile junky. I’ll admit it. I’ve used ShareFile since something like 2013. I’d be paying for it if I didn’t already get it for free! I use it daily for not only sending files but when I have clients uploading me information, etc. I use it for email attachments and link my Office 365 storage sites to it. It’s basically amazing, people!!!

However- I have worked out a deal with Citrix on this so that you can support this site by clicking on this affiliate link. Please let me know if you have been in touch with Citrix on this so I can follow up with them as well!

 

Services

AirBnB

Man, I wish someone had shared this with me when I signed up. You can get $40 off your first stay and give me $20 off of mine with this link!

As my travel has become less corporately controlled and more on my own, I’ve been using AirBnB. They also have a business account (which I’ve signed up for) that makes tracking expenses much easier!

So if you’re funding your own travel or have to fit into a certain budget I encourage you to start with your first $40 on me!
