I’ve been in the merchant services industry for nearly a decade and I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years.
Quickly learning that the industry has a need for honest and personal customer service, my straightforward and educational approach has proved to be a much appreciated method to merchant account maintenance.
Having worked in the financial services industry since 2001, I have been exposed to many different types of companies each run by people with unique perspectives and outlooks on running a business. I believe in letting others speak for the quality of my work and keep this principle as the cornerstone of my daily efforts.
With a passion for marketing, business development, and entrepreneurship I got into the payment processing industry as an independent contractor for iPayment. Later through friendships and business connections along with a partnership with Financial Transaction Services (now CardConnect), BancardSales was founded.
My straightforward approach to educational style marketing and focus on personal care became very popular with my clients, very quickly. These same principles are at the foundation of how I run my business and how I treat other people.
Beyond Payment Processing
I decided that the merchant services industry is one area where I can have a great impact on companies and the people who run them. While utilizing personal strengths, I consult for business owners outside of the payment processing industry.
Bringing in elements of personal growth, mindset training and goal setting techniques, my efforts have produced successful results for my clients in their work environment as well as in their personal life. Such topics include time management, focused and targeted goal setting and aligning intentions with actions.
With personal interests in human development and efficiency implementation, I bring elements not normally found in the payment processing industry to life. Incorporating awareness training I advise clients and partners about business and personal aspects that can improve quality of life and business.
