“I can’t remember my password.”

I hear this all of the time from my clients.  It can save you a lot of time and energy (and frustration!) by remembering your passwords.  I know it can be difficult with the endless number of accounts you have to sign up for – and all with a different variation of password requirements.  I have a trick I use, that a fellow co-worker taught me years ago.  The little black box…..
