100 Words On: The Most Important Power Tool a Household CEO Can Own

Last year there were eight-million victims of identity theft in the United States; on average they lost $631 per incident and spent 59 hours of personal time closing fraudulent accounts.

You can minimize your risk of identity theft by shredding junk mail and documents you no longer need that contain any of the following personal information items a thief requires to impersonate you: social security numbers, passwords, account numbers, PINs, signatures, and/or dates of birth.

The bottom line: Shredders start at around $30, making them an effective yet inexpensive way to help ensure the only person claiming to be you is … you.
