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?
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.
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!!!
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?
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!!!
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.
