Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Years are funny things. Yes, we just started 2023. And I even penned some thoughts (23 to be exact) about this year. But years are just a way to mark passing time. New Year’s resolutions? Why not mid-summer resolutions? What is special about January 1?

We put a lot of thought into improving when a new year starts. I’m all for self-improvement. But if you fall off the wagon, get back on.

Any day is a good day to focus on getting better.

Now, on to this week’s reading pile!
