If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed me mentioning my credit union. I’m a rather big fan. They’re everything I’ve ever needed in a financial institution and they’re active on Social Media, giving me access to people, resources that you’ll never find from “banks.”
What’s better than that?
They took notice. You see, they’re understanding the value of making your biggest cheerleaders you biggest voice in the market, especially with social media. I wasn’t surprised when I received a message from their PR/Social Media people asking if I wanted to record a video testimonial on their behalf. Of course I was flattered and eager to do so.
The afternoon I spent with them resulted in two videos:
For their mobile access:

It’s no surprise that I’ve entrusted all my money to Advantis and I continue to be a proponent of their service, and their services.
In customer service, it’s important to listen and respond to those who are being your naysayers, but also to listen and ENGAGE your promoters. The engagement will show you’re listening and they’ll only sing your praises in an empty room for so long.
Thanks to the Advantis Credit Union team for letting me be a voice for your exceptional service.

I was out and about today, tried to catch a picture of the Aerial tram blocking the sun. It moved. I got a cool “sunflower” shot instead.

Sometimes this is just how you feel.
There’s a Simpsons Episode for every moment. Please enjoy.
I had to make a trip out of town today. On my way back home I saw this car on fire.
I’m not a control freak by any stretch of the imagination. At any given moment there is some sort of chaos in my life.

Right now, I feel there is a lot of chaos. A little more than I’m used to. It’s little bits, here and there. Some days I’m swinging for the fences. Some days I’m holding on with two hands, one hand, or maybe just a pinkie. That’s not something I’m used to.

It’s strange. For someone who is used to some semblance of order in his life, I’m having a hard time getting organized. I’m pretty used to standing on top of things surveying my kingdom, not standing in the valley hoping that wave doesn’t crash. I know the reality is that you just have to put one foot in front of the other and you’ll get moving in a forward direction, but it seems my feet are stuck in the sand.
In the meantime, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out. I didn’t mean this post to be such a downer, but it’s just kind of where I am at the moment. And those of you who read this blog regularly, know I’m not ashamed to share a little piece of myself.

Each day at a time, one step at a time. I know. Just have to keep moving, right?
