RedyMoney Fact Monday

Hello readers, 

Another week has rolled around and here comes our much loved RedyMoney Fact Monday. Let’s be grateful that we’ve made it another week while many haven’t.

According to the Wall Street Journal: 47% of Americans say they cannot cover a $400 emergency expense without borrowing money or selling something.

Having problems with finance? Whether it’s an emergency or it’s time to do the back to school shop. Check out our website for financial advice and payday loans.



Food for thought.

Although it has been a while readers, we wanted to give you something to ponder till we next post.
Eleanor Roosevelt, American politician, diplomat, activist and longest serving First Lady of the United States has been an inspiration to many and has made motivational quotes relatable to many. One of those quotes include:

“What could we accomplish if we knew we could not fail?”

What could YOU accomplish if you knew the outcome would be successful? Think that through and then ask yourself, what is stopping you from making that accomplishment? Many have tuned in to the Olympics to watch these athletes make their own accomplishments, they didn’t let anything stop them so why should you? 

This is just food for thought, RedyMoney challenges you to accomplish something you thought you couldn’t. Let us know your outcome by leaving a comment. 

Rio Olympics and America’s first gold medal 

If you didn’t get a chance to see day one of the Rio Olympics or the opening ceremony we recommend you do, America has already won their first gold medal curtesy of Ginny Thrasher.

The opening ceremony was beautiful as expected and full of Brazillian culture, for example the replica plane that flew briefly around the arena. The plane is a replica of one of the earliest flying machines built by Brazlian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont called the ’14-bis’. Dumont flew this plane round the Eiffel Tower on October 23 1906. There was controversy over who was really first when it came to aviation, the Wright Brothers or Dumont which was reignited after the ceremony.

The 

Ginny Thrasher was the first gold medalist at the Rio Olympics by winning the ten meter air rifle event. In honour of the American nineteen year old’s achievements here are a few facts about Virginia (Ginny) Thrasher:
🔹Her father is in the military which means she has moved nine times before she was in ninth grade.
🔹Ginny’s interests sparked five years ago when her grandfather took her hunting and she shot the deer finding the adrenaline rush to be incredible.

🔹Shooting is a family thing, her grandfather has taken her shooting, her father was in the Air Force and both her brothers have good shots, her whole family is supportive of her shooting career.

🔹She’s the youngest member of team USA’s shooting team.

🔹Ginny won five medals at the USA Shooting National Championships for Rifle and Pistol 2015, one being a gold medal.

🔹Hunting was not Ginny’s first choice, she wanted to be an ice skater.

🔹Other interests of Ginny’s include reading, traveling and hunting .

🔹She is majoring Engineering at West Virginia University.


We at RedyMoney hope you have had a blessed week and will enjoy watching the Olympics.

Great life advice offered to us by characters in children’s entertainment.

It was once said by a wise being that the very things that hold you down are going to lift you up. Who was it that uttered those words of wisdom? Timothy Mouse in Dumbo, not familiar with the name? Here’s the face:


It’s interesting that this positive, uplifting, motivational peice of advice is from a children’s film, it’s important that we find these quotes in films that the future generation and children surround themselves with. What did Timothy Mouse mean by his advice? The things we see as limitations could actually be the used for our own strengths. Take Dumbo for instance, he saw his huge ears as a limitation, something that made him different and an outsider when in fact his ears made him special and unique, why try so hard to blend in when we were born to stand out? There are many quotes from films with similar outlooks and we decided to compile them to motivate your week!

Meowth:

We do have a lot in common, the same earth, the same sky. Maybe if we started looking at what’s the same instead of always looking at what’s different…well, who knows?”

How high does a sycamore grow? If you cut it down, then you’ll never know

RedyMoney Fact Monday!

Dear readers,

Can we already believe it’s August! hasn’t 2016 gone so quickly?

To celebrate the beginning of August and the bank holiday, we’re presenting you with not one but  two RedyMoney Monday Facts! So here goes:

The first credit card was created because of the embarrassment of a man who had to pay for dinner but forgot his wallet.

To think if he had remembered his wallet would we have credit cards at all or a similar system? Credit cards are quite integral to majority peoples lifestyles nowadays however as Ben Parker from the Spider-Man film series states “With great power comes great responsibility” don’t be too fraudulent with your credit card. For great advice on how to handle money, borrowing tips and not be too reliant on your credit card check out our website – http://www.redymoney.com. The next fact is:

Seashells  were once commonly used in many parts of the world as money.

Imagine how heavy your wallet would be carrying around all those seashells? Whenever you take a stroll on a beach and see a few seashells that could’ve paid for your breakfast if we still used seashells as money.

We hope we’ve given you something to think about this Monday wherever you are in the world. We also pray that your August will be filled with blessings and happiness.
