Patrick Kasper, Positive Motion

Fargo, N.D.

In addition to teaching dance at Gasper’s School of Dance in Fargo, Patrick Kasper has shared his mind and body fitness and team-building motivational program, Positive Motion, all over the world. And he built his business from the ground up with Bell Bank.

“I get to go out and share my message with people of all ages. I love working with kids and getting them motivated and rocking and rolling – and also working with adults when they need a little boost, confidence or extra fun in their lives with Positive Motion. It’s great that with Bell Bank’s support, I can go out and share that.”

How I chose Bell:

When I got back from the Cayman Islands, where I was doing dance, fitness and radio, I needed some financial guidance, and that’s when I met Brenda Messerschmidt. She helped me out with my first car loan and some financial advice. She’s so personable and nice and has become a friend, and she’s a great banker, so I really appreciate her.

How long I’ve been a customer:

Since 2004

My favorite banker:

Moorhead branch manager Brenda Messerschmidt – I appreciate her honesty when I need financial advice, and when I stop in, we visit about life as well. I always know I’ll be able to get hold of her, and she’ll help me out.

My favorite Bell Bank cookie:

That’s a good question, because I take at least 2 every time. I like the oatmeal raisin.

My Bell products and services:

Checking account, savings account, car loans and mortgage.

My favorite features:

I enjoy online banking. That’s a great way to keep up with things – especially since I travel quite a bit for work.

What I tell others about Bell:

It’s convenient. There are lots of branches, and I know I’m going to get quality service at every branch I go to.

I love that they give back to the community. They’ve supported me with some Positive Motion activities where I go out into the community and work with fun runs and other charity events.
