NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Kate and Briggs turn 10 this weekend. Somehow, in a blink of an eye, my dynamic duo went from being little, babbling babies to awesome kids. As my Dad said, the days go by slowly, but the years are swift. 

Now, on to this week's reading pile!

  • Home remodeling is a $450 billion market, and it is growing. (MarketWatch)
  • 3 cities in the U.S. have ended chronic homelessness. Here's how they did it. (FastCo) (We all have "big" problems on our plate. That's why I like stories like this - seeing how others break down problems and solve them. )
  • Home ownership is back. (Washington Post)
  • Is now a good time to start building new branches? (FB)
  • 13 ways we ignore negative feedback. (HBR)

  • A Texas library gives away hundreds of donated prom dresses to high schoolers so they can save their money for college. Pretty cool idea that I'm sure could be replicated. (Goodnewsnetwork)

  • You made my day. (Godin)
