Bank of the World -- Wherever you are, so are we!

The new branch of Bank of the World just opened in my town. I decided to move all my accounts out of the credit union here. With the amount that I travel, it just didn't make sense to use one of those "local" banks. I always had to worry about if I would have access to an ATM where I was staying. I had to keep excess cash on my at all times so that I wouldn't have to worry about running out. Then all I had to worry about was getting mugged.
That credit union was nice. The personal service…

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem?
