Musings from the CU Suite

Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

This Sunday marks Independence Day. For many reasons, July 4th was special. But what about June 10th, 1776? I ask this because a lot of important work was done before everyone agreed to sign the Declaration. People were nervous, but leaders stood up and demanded action. Here’s something I wrote about this fact a few years ago.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. And here is the weekend reading pile.

  • Sign up for the 2021 Innovation Spotlight event. (NAFCU)
  • Six ways to become consumers’ favorite FI. (FB)
  • Living paycheck to paycheck on $100k a year. (AWOCS)
  • America’s best customer service companies. (Newsweek) I don’t know the methodology here. The only real FI category was “commercial bank,” which seems only to include megabanks. That being said, I think you’ll find the list useful, and it could generate some road trips to see how these companies do things.
  • Creating the future of work. (Learn by Shipping) Interesting discussion on how technology is now central in nearly every workplace.
  • The psychologic benefits of commuting to work. (The Atlantic)
  • Is your workplace toxic? Now you can blame that one toxic employee. (FastCo)
  • This summer, jobs come with a hefty signing bonus. (WSJ)
  • Seven reasons to be extremely optimistic about the economy right now. (Slate)
  • Three steps to face daily challenges with fresh enthusiasm. (Leadership Freak)

Be careful with those sparklers, everyone.
