Today is a day of Thanksgiving in the good old US of A. Many Americans will sit down to roast turkey, pumpkin pie and questionable politics. However, you do not need to be ‘American’ to find reasons to be thankful this year. So, let’s cast off worries about Brexit, forgive those times your bank took a bit of ‘downtime’ and leave annoyance at startup founder bullshit for another day. Let today be a day of Reasons to be Thankful for FinTech. 😊
