We read a lot at Glatt Consulting and often find compelling articles we like to share. Usually we will drop an article link into a tweet, but now we are thinking it may be better to also grab the five best and share them on the GC website all at once. Hoping we can keep up a weekly post containing great articles – some but not all related specifically to credit union and banking issues.
