The months seem to run passed me. I know I am not alone. We all feel this way right? Days go too fast and these days I’ve realised that I need to actually slow down… (sad face)
Why the sad face? Because my name Debbie means Bee. Actually it means Queen Bee! haha. So the business& fluttering around of here and there is totally within my character right?!?
But you see, there comes a point where I have not only MYSELF to look after and to be honest my energy levels can’t keep up with the business that I might think I can handle… So instead of just being a Bee I’m going to take a step into the first part of that meaning. The Queen part. I’m having to let others run around if that’s what they want to do. But for me, Im sitting back to do what I can keep doing that is fruitful for me … and stop everything else.
What does this mean and why this post you might ask? I am trying to let you followers know that my once just only creative blog now has to become a personal one too. A touch of family and growth posts as well as creative ones.I can’t have 2 blogs going at once, I’m battling to do 1 never mind 2!
effort grace to calm this queen down and make better decisions that would benefit my health, family and myself I am joining blogs. You may decide to stop following me as you might not have interest in the new HOME LIFE – BEAUTIFUL CHAOS addition and that ok. Really it is. I’ll miss you but I’m not offended. I understand. There are WAAAAY too many blogs out there to be following something you not totally interested in! But I urge you to just hang in there for a few posts to give me a try ♥ If you still not keen, then it’s ok. Thank you for your time in the past!
If you keen to take the seat of a bit of Home Life & Creativity Life with me, man, I am so stoked to have you here with me!
Thanks to a really good book recommended by great pals, Be Your Own Financial Advisor by Warren Ingram; I have been introduced to a wonderful app some of you might know.
If you have not heard of 22SEVEN then read on.
This is a brilliant and SAFE app from Old Mutual that allows you to place all your income and expenses under 1 umbrella. The aim is to get your finances in order and managed in the best way. What I appreciate about this app is three things (girls point of view)
1- It’s easy to look at, follow & use. No complicated accounting eyesores.
2- It is so friendly. Including the support panel they offer. I was able to speak to someone from 22SEVEN who answered all my questions and when I mentioned how impressed I was on his quick response (like 3 seconds) He said ”Thats how we roll here”. I asked Adam’Sven’about the security of having all your banking details and account pins on the app and he sent me a great email reassuring me on their #1 priority SAFETY. He went on to saying …
22seven is as safe as your online banking service. We, along with our partner, Yodlee, make sure your security credentials are completely protected. Yodlee is an international account aggregator that works with over 300 financial institutions worldwide. Security is their business. They are the biggest and the best at collecting information in this way. They do it for nearly 50-million people around the world and their platform is used by 7 of the top 10 US financial institutions.
In SA Nedbank, Investec and Sage Pastel also use them. Yodlee also hold patents in information security and data aggregation. You can learn more about Yodlee’s security here (http://www.yodlee.com/yodlee-security/) and our security here (https://www.22seven.com/how-it-works/security).
He also said …
At the end of the day, your personal banking details are securely encrypted and stored in one of the best and most secure data vaults in the world. They are not kept with 22seven at all! In fact, no human being (except you) will ever see your banking information or login credentials ever.
If you check them out there is also great posts on their BLOG. They are a fun bunch of people really making that daunting ‘financial world’ a breeze to manage and relate to. So no more excuses. Invest and manage your money right!
