Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile; We Are!

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Penn State kicked off the season last night. (By the time you read this, they will have won or lost. I hope the former.)

I was excited on Thursday leading up to the game. Silly? I mean, it is a game played by young men, none of whom I’ve met.

But I don’t believe it is silly. I love the team. It is a new season. Full of opportunities. Almost akin to an adventure.

I feel the same way about starting a new book. Visiting a new town for the first time. Or starting a new year at work.

Being excited about opportunities, about the future, is a good thing in my book.

Enough of that. Now, on to this week’s reading pile!

  • Inside Citizens Bank’s Growing BNPL strategy. (FB)
  • California bill would effectively increase minimum wage for fast food joints to $22 an hour. (BI) Technically, it would only apply to chains with more than 100 locations. But that misses the point. You’ll be competing with that higher rate in California, so in a sense, it sets a new minimum wage.
  • Buyers are on the sidelines. (The Irrelevant Investor)
  • Is this chart going up or down? (The Reformed Broker)
  • Five lessons from history. (Collaborative Fund)
  • Unbeatable vs perfect. (Godin)
  • 2 in 5 consumers predict the Bank of the Future will be a tech company. (FB)
  • This is what’s really behind “quiet quitting” and what leaders can do about it. (FC)
