The banking relationship is decided! I have chosen to bank with Commerce Bank. Many factors contributed to this decision, but again, it came down to people. I have known Keith Asel for a while now and respect him. I also met Rebecca Gubbels about 3 times one week because we were going to the same kinds of networking events. Rebecca and I hit it off like old college buddies. Not only that, my attorney, John Gilliford recommended her as well while we were setting my LLC up. Small world. Anyway, opening the accounts on Wednesday! This is good because there have been quite a few small things that I have had to pay for with my personal funds that really need to come out of the business. I will fund the business checking account with a loan and cut myself expense checks for the things I paid for personally. I am close to picking my CPA as well, and will post that soon.
Me? A blogger?
Honestly, I was skeptical. My first few posts were dry, hard to write and not very interesting, even to me. Then I had a breakthrough. I wrote about my passion for Bruce Springsteen. Very personal, very “non-banky.” The response was overwhelmingly positive.
