Occupy Yourself- Pamela White

October 14th, 2011 11:49am

"The key is refusing to interact with Wall Street, shopping locally, eating locally, buying only what you can afford with cash, taking your money out of banks, annuities and mutual funds and depositing it in a credit union...  Until you make these changes, you are an active participant in the system you hope to change."

Out Boulder Celebrates Pride Fest

September 20th, 2011 7:15am

Diversity helps make our community experiences more fulfilling and enjoyable. That not only includes different personalities, preferences, and backgrounds, but also different businesses.

Having a more diverse business sector allows for niche markets to be created (whereas corporations typically follow what works for them). Take, for example, Fabulez.com. They are an internet dating site for women-to-women only, allowing their users comfortable access to a wide variety of dating resources.

7 Simple Steps to Move Your Checking Account

May 25th, 2011 8:44am - Posted By: mike

1. Open Your New Account
In most cases, you should be able open a checking account with an initial deposit of $25 to $100. At a credit union, you’ll also become a member and co-owner at the same time.

2. Order New Checks and an ATM/Debit Card
These typically arrive within 1 to 2 weeks. You should also consider applying for a credit card from your new local bank or credit union at the same time.

3. Ask Your Employer to Reroute Your Direct Deposit
When you open your new account, ask the bank or credit union for a direct deposit authorization form that includes your new account information. Give this form to your employer and anyone else who makes direct deposits to your account. It may take one or more pay cycles for the change to be made, so keep your old checking account open and watch for the switch.

4. Contact Companies that Direct-Debit Your Account
Using your last bank statement, make a list of any businesses that you’ve authorized to directly debit your account. Ask your new bank or credit union for an automatic payments authorization form that includes your new account information. Send this to the businesses on your list.

5. Set-up Online Bill Paying for Your New Account
If you like to pay bills online, set up bill payment information for your new account. Also, stop any automatic, recurring payments you have established through your old account.

6. Close Your Old Account
Once you have started receiving direct deposits into your new account and are sure that there are no outstanding checks or automatic debits that need to clear, close your old account. Warning: do not just withdraw the last dollar and assume the account will fade away on its own. Your old big bank may start charging you fees for having an empty or inactive checking account. Instead, follow the bank’s procedure for closing out the account.

7. Enjoy your new local banking relationship!
