Spent most of the day doing admin related tasks, which I don't like so much. The business banking consultant at the First National Bank branch near me was very efficient, patient and friendly. Sorted out most of the banking issues I had and the only outstanding problem is something that is outside her province.
It was nice to feel that a bank, which I normally see it as a disinterested bureacracy, is making an effort to treat its customers as individuals. Or least, thing consultant did. My only complaint, and it is a big one, is that the online banking service centre makes you wait for ages if you call then. Even if the call is being made by a banking employee. Having to hold for close to 20 minutes is not good use of one's time.

Take part in a chat event
Also note that Gaynor Paynter and Alison Fourie, founders of TAVASA will host a chat event on their blog at on the 01 December, at 15:00 - 16:00. The aim of the chat event is to talk to women who may be in abusive relationships, or maybe just women who want financial independence, about how to start a virtual assistant/transcription business. Nope, they're not going to try to sell anyone anything:-)
They just want to help, offer women who feel trapped by circumstance an option they can use to fight for their financial independence, which may contribute towards freedom from an abusive relationship.
Register for the chat event.
And please keep the posts coming. The more ordinary men and women have a say on this issue, the better.
