Think about our busiest days. We run around, juggle family and work, juggle work and bills, take kids from home to school and back again, and deal with an endless list of errands. We have little time for much else, and on these busy days we may even skip a meal or two.
Contrast this with days when we have no obligations whatsoever. Imagine what that obligation-free day looks like. Imagine what it feels like.
When we have time, we have freedom.
Free to be with family. Free to play with the kids. Free to exercise. Free to eat right. Free to relax. Free to smell the roses. Free to learn a new skill. Free to read. Free to dream.
Philosopher John Locke described freedom as, “[The] state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man.”
There is so much to do every day that finding time, and therefore freedom, seems like an impossible goal. The way to accomplish this goal is to do so in phases.
The first phase is to address things that we can control. Money is at the top of the list for virtually every worker because so many aspects of our lives have a nexus with how and when we are paid. Even when we budget effectively and manipulate the timing of bill payment as best as we can, we don’t have total control over our money because we are paid on one specific day each pay period, and bills don’t adhere to that schedule.
What if we could control the timing of pay, and therefore unlock more freedom?
Now we can. With PayActiv.
PayActiv enables us to take control of the timing of our earned wages. We can manage our pay as we choose in any pay period.
When we have control over when we get paid, we have control over when our bills get paid, which enhances our financial wellness by optimizing our budgeting.
We can now live the life we’ve earned.
In doing so, we unlock the next phase of our journey towards freedom.
We are able to begin saving. As we save, we create more time for ourselves, and even more freedom. With freedom comes time. As time adds up, our freedom to do other things that enhances other parts of our lives snowballs.
All those things we have dreamed about doing – even if it’s just spending more time with the kids – suddenly become real.
We can automate our bill payments to save time. We can save time by spending earned wages directly on Amazon, so we don’t have to go out and shop. We can speak to a financial counselor who may have even more ideas on how to save time and money.
PayActiv was designed to create time for users and to serve the foundational desire to be free.
Our freedom is literally in the palm of our hand.
