The Way Banking Should Be

leave a comment »

I am still reading through Mavericks at Work.

One of the companies profiled in the book is ING Direct.

They are not your ordinary bank.

  • No branches.
  • No fees, no minimums, great rates.
  • Most transactions online.
  • Short list of financial products.
  • No credit cards.

From their website……

ING DIRECT exists to help you Save Your Money.

This is the way banking should be. Simple, easy, ING DIRECT. Save Your Money.

They were and continue to be disruptive to the banking industry. A bank that encourages and helps you to make wise financial decisions. Savings focused vs. debt focused.

In this video, CEO Arkadi Kuhlmann states that a banking transaction should be as easy as purchasing a cup of coffee. I agree.

Clear purpose. Values driven. Simple. Different.

Mavericks at Church

I posted earlier about Mavericks at Work

This book profiles innovative, imaginative, and unconventional companies like……

ING Direct……Southwest Airlines……GSD&M……..HBO………Cranium……….Craigslist…….and others

These companies figured out that ‘business as usual is a bust’…….and it has paid off nicely for them.

Something similar is happening in the church world.

I believe that the church should be the most innovative, imaginative, creative, cutting edge, and forward thinking organization on the planet.

Here are a few Mavericks at Church that are leading the way……..
