Happy Tuesday Alabama!!

Welcome back!!! We hope your Easter break was reflective and was another source of inspiration for you.

redy-inspiration
We must start the week right. RedyMoney always says, regardless of your sector, there must be a source of inspiration and motivation from which you draw.

Even our farmers are not short on charity. Can you imagine us in Alabama? You know we are truly made of stern substance, when despite all our predicaments, we can still extend assistance to other states; much as how we receive assistance from time to time.

Another inspiring fact: more than 75% of Phenix City’s population is above poverty level. RedyMoney knows from our end, that this is something we are proud to hear, thus far for our efforts. Of course we are working to lower this number. What do you think you can do in this regard?

It is prudent for taxpayers to file, even you cannot meet the April 18 deadline (that’s today!!!).

RedyMoney has your back Alabama, if you are not able to file on time, it is still important that you file.

With that said, and much to do, we encourage you to have an inspiring week!!!

Have a RedyMonday!!!

A RedyMonday is one that sees you having the requisite inspiration and drive to achieve all your goals, step-by-step, for any given week. 

redy-inspiration

Inspiration for this week comes from Harold Stephen and as RedyMoney encourages us all to be brave in the face of every obstacle, it goes: “There is a great difference between worry and  concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.”

Yes, we are still in Tax Season. RedyMoney implores with all citizens to be cautious of how you respond to prompts to pay taxes. Facts to be guided by, the IRS will not ask you to wire money. If the IRS is contacting you for the first time about owed taxes, this usually takes the form of a letter in the mail. Also, do not confirm any tax return information over the phone, if the person is not satisfied with you saying you will visit a tax service center, more than likely it is a scammer, and you are well within your right to end the call. Scamming affects thousands of Americans, increase your knowledge to decrease your likelihood of becoming a victim!!!

Stores closing down/ ceasing operations is also a part of business, knowing when to cut losses and going back to the drawing board. But what about the families that will be affected by this job cut???

All in a day in Alabama….. You have to stop and wonder, what role do I play in all that is happening around me? Am I making a good contribution or a bad one?

With all this said, RedyMoney wished you a productive, hopeful and bold week. Remember to worry less!!!!

 

Happy RedyMonday!!!

After a mixed weekend, we are now solidly and securely in the third month of the year; the closing of the first quarter. Time is certainly going fast. Have you achieved any of your goals for the first quarter? Done anything on your wish list?

redy-inspiration
For inspiration to get you through this week, we look at the type of motivation that makes you feel re-energized to sticking to your personal, professional and financial goals: “a small start is still a start.”

It is simple, you have written down your goals for 2017 and why you want them. But what action have you done, directly or indirectly to bring you closer to the goals you have set down? If your goal is saving $10,000; do you consider putting away $20 per week a step towards that goal? And, did you give yourself reasonable time to save this money? If not; chances are you should. 

Taking into consideration borrowing/ honoring your debt: have your goals been so aligned to allow for you to repay this debt with ease? More importantly, do you really need to borrow? Borrowing is to ease the burden or emergencies that we are unprepared for, with that in mind, a goal can be to save, even the smallest amount you can, so if you need to borrow, you borrow less!!! 

Just in case the news did not reach you, the IRS may owe you.

Remember we are in Red Cross month. As we go through this month, RedyMoney hopes you can find motivation through the acts of kindness that Alabama is known for. Just think: you are passing someone on the street who may have donated blood that in turned saved someone’s life. Even if it had nothing to do with you, that’s comforting to know!!!

Have a blessed, focused and inspired week Redy family!!!

Welcome to March!!!

And the weekend….. Both are good news and both are welcomed today.It is a new month filled with its own lessons and opportunities. We hope you have already planned your strategies for this month upon reflecting last month.

red-cross-month-america
You know America should not be on short supply for motivation, inspiration and a call to be great. From Black History Month to observing Red Cross month shows that America did get the memo: that heroes do live amongst us, creating a kinder, more caring and more inclusive legacy. All heroes of the American Red Cross whom have given selflessly throughout the year, RedyMoney salutes you!!!

Seasonal employment means that you get the opportunity for those of us who are otherwise self-employed to expand our horizons and joins thousands in a diverse workforce. What a way to welcome spring, Home Depot!!! Good luck to all of Alabama that applies and gets accepted.

Imagine hearing this over the speaker: that the IRS owes you money. Wouldn’t you stop what you were doing and go find out? Maybe you would be afraid its a scam; which is only the case you had not files your returns so there is nothing to collect. To all those who have filed, ensure you get your returns and that you keep a record of filings and returns and see the balance.  Anyone going to the nearest tax support office coming Monday??? Well there are 18,000 of you according to the IRS!

You go Zoe!!! Indeed you are gifted and talented. Dear parents, are you giving Zoe a special treat this weekend??? This 11 year old already knows what she wants to see in her future, and she has made sure to create it for all to see. Whatever the results Zoe. RedyMoney is already proud of you!!!

Did someone say we have to wait, ALL of 17 more days for Spring??? Oh well, we’ll be right here. Have a wonderful weekend Alabama!!!

Happy Friday Alabama!!!

happy-friday-alabama
Happy Friday Alabama!!! It is indeed a blessing that we have all lived to see another Friday. We hope you all had a wonderful and productive week. Early next week, we say goodbye to February, for good (this year, at least), and RedyMoney encourages you to continue to go back to the drawing board to ensure that your actions remain aligned with your goals. Start looking at how our month went and how you can improve come March. Time is inevitable, but we must believe in the opportunities presented to each us each day, to grow, be more and do more.

It is official, you can purchase some emergency items, tax free. Speak to your local store before making a purchase and find out exactly what deal you are getting, as you prepare for any natural disaster. Speaking of weather, we must all brace ourselves for some customary rain in March. Think we will get a break this year?

All-in-all, it was a week of achievements and applaud. RedyMoney supports an venture that increases service access to most of a population. You go further to invest in the youth, pave a way to make their learning more interactive with current information and you become a favorite in our book. Salute to: Montgomery County, City of Montgomery, Maxwell Gunter Air Force Base and Cyber College of Air Force. When different bodies/ entities collaborate to create an inclusive service, it should definitely be highlighted.

keep-calm-and-celebrate-bhm
Yes, the celebrations of African Americans and their great contribution throughout history, will soon come to a close. Though celebrations end, and whilst RedyMoney certainly is not saying to host celebrations all year round; the best way of appreciation is through emulation. What have you taken away, as virtue or character from any of the African-American Pioneers you read/learnt about this month?

RedyMoney loves to send you into the weekend pondering. Have a blessed and safe weekend family!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Were you missing RedyMoney? We know you were looking to hear from us yesterday. We are still here and we have still been serving our customers. To all our virtual family, it appears each day comes with its ow set of troubles or worries, which is why our focus should be on overcoming each day.

redy-inspiration
We share with you what Leo F. Buscaglia would have, “Worrying never robs tomorrow of its sorrows, it only saps today of its joy.” It is inevitable that when you think about tomorrow and the future on a whole, you become a little anxious. It is one thing to plan for your future, and another thing entirely to become anxious over what may or may not happen, or anything that is outside of our control. Let us try seeing today, for what it is really is, not a day to spent worrying about tomorrow, but to realize that we have been blessed to see this day and we must live.

Take Good Care…

Welcome to another week RedyMoney family. Let us do good and position ourselves to receive good karma this week. 

redy-inspiration
In continued observance of Black History Month, our inspirational quote for this week comes from Malcolm X: “There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every loss, every heartbreaks, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.”
redytalks-taxes
RedyMoney therefore offers you some motivation to get your finances in order, and what better time to do a complete overhaul of your finances, that right after Tax season? Remember refunds may not be reflected in your accounts until the week of February 27. The IRS relies on your understanding and apologizes for the delay. RedyMoney believes in good RedyMoney karma, “if you don’t take good care of your credit, then your credit won’t take good care of you.” Tyler Gregory
national-frozen-yogurt-day-rm
Happy Frozen Yogurt Day!!! For those who have a sweet tooth and a penchant for colorful frozen diets, Frozen yogurts are for you. The healthier choice and still immensely filling and enjoyable, especially with fruits. Never tried one? You’re missing out!!!

Went super bowling last night at Brunswick Bowling alley??? We didn’t see you!!! RedyMoney lauds the initiative of the Montgomery Public Schools, who use this activity as a means for families to spend time together and to establish relationships with the school and for performing in school to become ‘hype’ again. We hope the children were rejuvenated.

Have a wonderful week RedyMoney family!!!

Goodbye January???

Raise your hand if you are ready to say goodbye to January….. February is fast approaching and RedyMoney hopes you are ready for new opportunities, new goals, new targets, new ambitions; or even ready for phase 2 of your personal life plan.

redytalks-taxes
Talking about personal life plan, it is now unavoidably clear that not only is it tax filing season, but that as a citizen, you would have penciled it into your to-do list. Remember, a good financial resolution is to become more prudent and astute at handling the filing of your yearly income taxes. In case you are a little behind, RedyMoney has you covered when it comes to Tax Stress.

No, we do not file taxes, but the IRS has thought of you when they introduced their E-Filing system. Again, if it is too much for you to handle, you can visit the nearest Tax Service Center and obtain assistance, there is no time like the present to get your tax affairs in order.

Yes, you may receive a suspicious phone call, especially now during the tax season. The IRS is aware that this peak time of activity and giving of information, can be preyed upon by scammers. You are therefore warned, to not give out any personal information of yours, whether by phone, email or text, even if they claim to be from the IRS. Thanks to the IRS, they have given some tips and guidelines in the link. Remember, if in doubt, you can always hang up the phone without giving out any information.

redy-inspiration
In closing, RedyMoney leaves you with this quote: “the two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.”Mark Twain

Have an inspired week Redy family!!!
