  • What Do MutualBank and Queen Have In Common?

    Monday, March 11, 2013

    You probably were not expecting to learn how the band Queen and MutualBank are similar!  I raise my hand; I am guilty- guilty of being a rabid fan of Queen and of MutualBank.  So I thought I would take a moment to share the top five ways these two things connect.  I know you are on the edge of your seat waiting to see what I mean!  Here it goes!

    5.  Queen was a group with a lot of variety in the type of music they presented.  From a hard rocking song to an operatic overture, no two songs were ever quite the same.  MutualBank’s checking accounts are the same way.  We have an array of checking account products to choose from.  From our most basic free checking accounts, to an interest bearing checking account, to a money market account, we have your covered.

    4.  Queen had a long track record of consistent quality music and even today has great fans worldwide.  MutualBank has been offering quality products to our customers since 1889.  Our checking account products offer some of the highest incentives offered!

    3.  Queen had one of the most charismatic and engaging front men in the history of rock with Freddie Mercury.  MutualBank has thirty-one Financial Centers that offer the highest of quality service over Indiana and that can help you with all your checking needs!  Let our “front men and women” help you!

    2.  Queen diversified its music by playing not only for large crowds in stadiums to even a cozy club.  MutualBank’s service is about the customer first and foremost.  If your needs are such that you simply need a checking account or if you are someone that needs a wide amount of services, MutualBank has you covered!

    1.  Listening to Queen’s music can raise your mood and a good mood offers lots of benefits!  MutualBank’s checking accounts offer UChoose Loyalty Rewards!  How cool is it to get paid for using your account for things you buy anyway?  With UChoose Loyalty Rewards, MutualBank also gives you the benefit of points for having accounts with the bank!

    Despite your choice in music, all of this applies to you!  MutualBank offers a wide range of products, services and benefits to fit anyone’s tastes! 
    Rock on MutualBank!

  • Safety and Social Media

    Wednesday, February 27, 2013

    Social Media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and others have exploded in growth over the last few years.  Most of us have several social media accounts and use them frequently to communicate with others.  As with any online activity, social media does have risks so we do have to follow best practices when using social media sites.

    By following these guidelines you can greatly reduce risk in social media:

    • Manage your accounts – make sure that you change your passwords often and don’t use the same password for all social media sites.
    • Secure your accounts – social media sites update security systems frequently so make sure that you periodically review your account security settings and limit the amount of information you share publicly with non-friends.
    • Online scams - Facebook scams such as free gift cards, phony charities, and “watch this amazing video” are all used to trick people into divulging private information to steal identities.  Sites like Facecrooks can help alert you to current scams that are circulating via Facebook.
    • Keep anti-virus/anti-malware applications up to date on your computers and phones.
    • Making friends – Make sure you use caution when accepting new friend requests on social media sites.  We’re seeing an increase of fraudulent social media profiles of people posing to be from companies where they actually don’t work.
    • Verify friend requests from businesses – If you haven’t conducted business with a person requesting friendship then don’t accept the request.  If you are unsure then call the business to verify the person is with that company.
    • If you do call, use the phone number you have on record from a business card or phonebook.  Do not use any information contained within the requesting persons profile as it may be false.
    • MutualBank will not ask for personal, financial, or username and password information over social media channels.
    • If you suspect any of your social media profiles have been compromised, change your password immediately and call the customer support number listed on the social media site to report it.

    Remember, you can call us anytime. Let us know if you have questions or concern for your bank accounts. Call 800-382-8031or email

  • Thank Those Who've Helped You

    Friday, February 15, 2013

    Recently I had the opportunity to succeed my manager who is retiring after a long and full career.  As I reflect on those people who have helped me reach many of my career aspirations, including this gentleman, it struck me, once again, how lucky I have been to have had people that have taken time, effort, and energy to mentor me.  Many of these people were busy with their own work and yet they stopped what they were doing to give me some time, to lend me a hand, or guide me in one direction or another.

    My first bank manager is the reason that I found banking to be so much fun and the reason that I chose this as my career (a decision that I still feel wonderfully blessed to have made).  He took a very naïve, young man, fresh out of graduate school with no real sense of what I was going to do professionally, and guided me to think seriously about banking.  He gave me opportunities to succeed (and sometimes fail) and helped me learn from each of them.  He gave me the chance to manage others and helped me learn how to do that too.  Sometimes he taught me on the job, sometimes on a Saturday morning run.  But always he kept reassuring me that I “had what it takes” to succeed in this career if I wanted to.

    The second mentor in my career was my grandfather.  He helped me see the true potential that I had within the industry.  He guided me into an MBA program to help me learn more about business.  But most of all, he showed me every day in his business dealings that honesty and integrity were critical to true success and the ability to go to sleep at night knowing that I had done the right thing.

    Finally, the gentleman that just retired showed me that I can be successful as the manager of the business banking group.  He sent me an e-mail right before he left giving me encouragement to stay steadfast, to continue to reach for those goals, and then said, I know “you have a good skill set.  Just be yourself!!!”  What a great confidence booster he gave me.  He helped me learn so much about myself while teaching me about the business of commercial lending.

    And so it is that I write this blog encouraging every reader to find the opportunities to mentor someone.  That person may be someone you work with, it may be a customer, it may be a neighborhood kid, or it may be your grandson (or granddaughter).  Whoever it may be, when you mentor someone you give them the courage, the confidence, and the belief that maybe they can do something that they hadn’t even dreamed they could do.  And if you have been mentored, take a moment and drop that person a thank you letter, e-mail or phone call to let them know how much you appreciate their help in getting you to where you are today.
