If you have a phone, you’re familiar with all the different technology offerings to share payments, buy food, pay bills, etc. There’s so much we can do with our phones these days that you almost don’t need a computer anymore (almost). What about your bank account? Up until a few years ago the thought of mobile banking was just that, a thought. In true millennial fashion, you’re breaking barriers and demanding new options when it comes to mobile banking. Enter Varo.

On This Podcast Episode:

I’ve been on the lookout for a mobile bank that could really meet my needs, so I’ve decided to interview a few and see what they’re all about so we could make some educated decisions about where to keep our money.

On this episode, we’re talking with Colin Walsh, CEO or Varowhich offers customers a different way to bank (and a cool spot where you can request an option to be added to their bank accounts).
