5 Outside-Industry Emails Every Credit Union Leader Should Subscribe To


I have been a bookworm for as long as I can remember; from spending summers at my dad’s blazing through historical fiction books to reading Harry Potter until the wee hours of the morning. These days I’m one of the odd birds that prefers non-fiction to fiction. Malcolm Gladwell. Sheryl Sandberg. Mindy Kaling. Gabrielle Bernstein. I love facts, figures, and tools I can incorporate into both my professional and my personal life. 

That being said… I have a confession. I am a serial book dater. That’s right, I can’t commit to just one book. At any given point you’ll find 2 books on my nightstand, 1 in my purse, and 2-3 audio books queued up for the next chapter. With all of the many, many inspiring books out there, how can one possibly settle down and read one all the way through, amiright?

Email newsletters are the serial book dater’s best friend. Short, sweet, insightful, and inspirational, this daily or weekly content gives you the knowledge you crave within the constraints of your busy day. And while there’s not a day that goes by at TwoScore where we don’t read each and every article at CUInsight,, and CU Water Cooler, we love looking outside the credit union space for ideas that will take our industry to the next level:
