Happy Thursday!!!

What a day to be alive!! As we wrap up our week to go off on a long weekend, RedyMoney puts in our two cents. Amidst all the plans and activities, we must stay close to the principles and the significance of the holidays; what it means for you and your families.

Any special meals to prepare? Whatever plans you have this weekend, ensure you chose the safest options and that you are using the most cost-effective measures when preparing for your activities. 

And today's tiny town feature comes to you from the town of:

Happy RedyMonday!!!

Welcome to the second week of April, and the second quarter of 2017. It is always easy to get distracted or exceedingly caught up in daily life, giving less thought to your long term plans and goals. It is always good to experience each day anew and seize all opportunities, however, you must balance living everyday with the alignment of your life goals

For example, what financial goals did you set at the beginning of the year? Have you been able to make any contribution to these goals? Whatever goals you set in life, there are some realities, that it is best that they be accepted as soon as you encounter. For example, many may not be so fortunate to go through life without incurring debt. And mismanaged debts are also a reality of some Alabamians. Financial stress can contribute greatly to Depression (which was observed last Friday for World Health Day). 

The reality is that everyday living can contribute to health problems in many different ways. Sometimes it becomes necessary that we borrow, but how does debt become burdensome? When we incur additional debt. Or if we lose our jobs. Or simply, borrowing would have been a poor decision for our expenditure in the beginning. Last Friday, RedyMoney encouraged all citizens to talk. And if you find that you are burdened by debts, you are again urged to talk to someone.

redy-inspiration
There is never any real inspiration in becoming indebted. However, you must know your financial standing before falling into debt. Your finances will only work for you as much as you let them.

In a time such as now, RedyMoney encourages all citizens to take charge of their finances. Yes, not all factors citizens have control over; but we must control what it is within our power.

Have a blessed Monday and a productive week family!!!!

Happy Healthy Friday!!!

Today is World Health Day!! As important conversation continues around depression, let us not forget that devastating events also can give rise to depression. Anything traumatic can cause one to experience depression. RedyMoney’s prayers and condolences go out to all citizens who have been displaced by the weather this week. Even the threat of a weather can affect your mental health. Which is why preparation is important to ease some of that anxiety.

It is time to talk, as talking never hurts. Taking your overall health seriously is an investment, investment in healthier lives, financial stability and much more. You would have heard before that being caught in a financial rut indefinitely puts a strain on your finances; same goes for having health complications.

There is no straight answer for this two way dilemma, however, investing in your health whilst balancing your finances, can ultimately start through conversation. Stressed that you are not meeting your financial goals, as you had projected? Talk to a trusted friend, and someone who is a financially sound adviser. Join us as we raise awareness about talking about Depression!!

Endeavor also, to end your week on a productive note: celebrate the tasks you have accomplished and make a list of those tasks that were to be completed but did not get completed. Work on them first thing Monday morning.

RedyMoney wishes for all of Alabama a safe and reflective weekend. We also encourage to count even the smallest of blessings and focus on them. See you next week!!!

Happy Wednesday Alabama!!!

Did you ‘Light it up Blue’ this past Sunday to support World Autism Awareness Day? If you missed the grand lighting on Sunday and the convention of the Autism Support communities; not to worry, throughout April and throughout all of Alabama, you can Join the Autism Society of Alabama, as they ask you to support an angel for Autism. Do not worry about how much you donate, or if you have money to donate. The organization may also have non-monetary needs that you can assist with. And for every parent to an autistic child: “Toward Autonomy and Self Determination.” Your child needs you unwavering support to ensure they can function and contribute greatly in a society that needs every talent. Of course, there is a pressing matter of severe weather today…….

RedyMoney encourages all citizens to remain safe and well prepared ahead of the severe weathers to come. Our prayers are with you and your loved ones. Remember, it is best to move to  a storm shelter as soon as possible, before it is too late. Here are a list of Storm Shelters, placed on standby with resources to accommodate citizens.

And today's tiny town feature comes to you from the town of:
And for this small town in Pickens County, especially, RedyMoney encourages extra caution.

With an estimated population in 2015 of 73, Ethelsville, fell from a steady 81 between 2000 and 2010. Can you imagine, all these small towns, must certainly be treasured and revered, to survive and co-exist in such a small setting. RedyMoney encourages you all to pool all your resources to ensure you are all safe throughout the severe weather threats.

Have a safe Wednesday Alabama!!!!

Happy April Alabama!!!

April and Alabama have one thing in common: they both begin with the letter ‘A’. RedyMoney is adding another ‘A’ word to the mix as we begin the second quarter. ‘Aspiration’. Appealing to the ambition of the Alabama people. The ambition of seeing our state flourish and our people thrive.

On the matter of our people thriving, as a state, we must all see how we can assist our governor in making a state goal come true. A state goal that will undoubtedly benefit, both directly and indirectly, all citizens. What say you? Do you wish to be part of this process?

Our Montgomery Police are aspiring to be more than what their duties dictate. Duties, which requires them to execute in meaningful ways and ways that citizens can relate. RedyMoney lauds the initiative by the Police and we encourage all citizens to come on board.

redy-inspiration

Of course, as inspiration, RedyMoney gives a quote that encourages all of us to aspire to be more, and to live, not just exist. Robert Browning tells us, “Aspirations are our possibilities.’

RedyMoney hopes you have an inspired and aspiring week. What possibilities have you been longing for? Think about it..

Happy Friday Alabama!!!

happy-friday-alabama
It is important to start the weekend right….

We start your weekend with this quote: “Make the best use of what is in your power and take the rest as it happens.” Thank you for this one Epictetus!!!

As we get ready to say goodbye to March 2017; we must ask ourselves: (1) How much of my projections did I achieve this month? (2). What prevented me from not achieving some of my goals for this month, and how can I prevent the same hurdles for next month? (3). What new knowledge did I gain this month? (4) Has anything happened this month that can improve my performance and outlook for the next month?

Say what!!! Alabama has its own share of millionaires??? That is great news!!!

As we approach a new month, RedyMoney reminds you that we are remain your loan service provider to get you through any unplanned financial emergency that you may encounter. We continue to encourage that you use every day to grow and every pay check to make smart buying choices.

See you in April family!!! Have a blessed weekend!!!!

Happy RedyWednesday!!!!

As we will soon be saying goodbye to March….

RedyMoney encourages all to continue to volunteer, donate and support Red Cross initiatives across the country, if they can. Red Cross, too, is aware of the threat in early Spring, of flooding and possibly severe weather. They ensured we are covered with some tips, fully endorsed by RedyMoney. Throughout the month, the Organization has been encouraging us all to unearth the inner heroes within all of us. And surely, for an organization whose workforce is 90% volunteers, this is beyond possible, to give willingly to a worthy cause.  As we say goodbye to the month, let us not say goodbye to the cause.

A healthy state means many things for economy. Anything affecting any citizen carries an impact, as the person with so much to give, loses the motivation to do so. Can you then imagine losing a baby? To an unexplained cause? The grief alone can make mothers, fathers and siblings lose their drive. And whilst we teach resilience and recovering from loss; if we can solve the problem; let us solve. We would really like to know if the Baby Box works!!! Even better news; some mothers may even get the boxes free!!!!

RedyMoney wonders how Alabama is taking this news. To know that if this legislation is passed, their online behavior can be sold without their permission, as their Internet Services providers sees fit? How is it ever ethical to commercialize online privacy? Who makes these rules?

And today's tiny town feature comes to you from the town of:
In our #LifeInAlabama feature today:

We look at Needham, over there near Choctaw County’s center. With a 2015 estimated population of 91, a fall from estimated population of 94 in 2010. 

That is it for this Wednesday family!!! We will see you on Friday and we will say goodbye to March together. Godspeed!!!

 

 

Happy Monday!!!

We hope that you come from a restful but productive weekend. With all the talk about stormy weather in some parts of the state, it is so much more important for you to prepare. We hope you attended the ULE expo. If not, there are basic and effective ways to protect your family. For those sections of the state under threat; you are in our prayers. How do we balance, hoping that everyone stays says when nature takes its course??? We prepare and pray for the best!!!

redy-inspiration

As a proud business operating in Alabama, today we though to bring you inspirational quotes authored by some of the State’s very own, Fannie Flagg: “Being a successful person is not necessarily defined by what you have achieved, but moreso, but by what you have overcome.”

We are keeping it short this Monday, as our prayers remain with everyone of those in zones of storm threat. Peace and safety be with you RedyMoney family!!!

Happy Spring Friday!!!

Despite the threat of sever weather in some sections of the state, RedyMoney welcomes you to another Friday. Just think, next week this time, we are saying good-bye to March, for good, for this year. #TimeFlies

Anybody plans to attend the Urban Living Expo this Saturday? To explore and be informed on the importance of being prepared for a natural disaster.Each family needs to have a plan of action and practice.
