With the NFL playoffs and the Superbowl upon us, football has been on my mind. Watching a playoff game the other day, I couldn’t help but think about the many similarities that football and banking share, particularly at Avenue Bank.
Think about it, no matter the level at which you are playing, you play to be the best and you play to win. Your team has a common goal, to work together, grow together and ultimately compete for the championship…together. Sure the championship may come in different forms, in the NFL it’s a title and a trophy… for Avenue, it’s becoming the signature bank of Nashville.
Being a part of a championship team, while thrilling, certainly comes with its own set of challenges. Your offense is playing proactively, while your defense does its best to play reactively. The hope is to win the game using a good balance of both.
In both worlds, you’re not only playing for you, you’re playing for those raving fans…the fans that show up to every game, face painted, jersey donned, cheering for you when you win and supporting you with the same vigor when you don’t. Those raving fans are the ones that share your passion for your team, your culture, your traditions and your brand.
As I look ahead to another season with our Avenue Bank team, I’m excited for the prospect to compete, the challenge to stay agile and for the opportunity to keep ‘wowing’ our raving fans.
