On Nov. 8, we had one of the most momentous — and to political observers, improbable — victories in the history of our industry. We defeated, by popular vote, a purportedly progressive measure in a very progressive state, against an opponent who had more than 10 times our budget, the app... More »

Finding the Right Payment Business Model

Finding the Right Payment Business Model
One consistency among nearly all paysite owners is that they are creatures of habit. After all, how else could someone tirelessly produce or procure similar content steadily in order to update their commercial enterprise or labor-of-love on a weekly or daily basis?

What Payment Plan Suits Your Bottom Line

What Payment Plan Suits Your Bottom Line
The most disappointing aspect of merchant processing is having to tell a merchant that all domestic options have been exhausted and that there isn’t a bank in the U.S. willing to open a merchant account for them. Most merchants will pause and ask, “Why the qualifiers? ‘Domestic&rsq... More »

The Journey Toward Artificial Intelligence in Processing

The Journey Toward Artificial Intelligence in Processing
Let’s be honest. If you’re running a company you spend most of your time trying figure out what the hell is going on. Then you spend the rest of your time — what’s left of it — trying to get your people to do the right thing (based on what’s going on). The first... More »

Home Party Industry Goes From Trend to Full-Fledged Business Model
Direct sales and home parties, once the domain of Mary Kay ladies and purveyors of Tupperware, have become a thriving industry that’s still under many adult companies’ radar. Between 2010 and 2015, we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of people working in direct sales and a corresp... More »

Making Business Travel More Efficient, Comfortable

Making Business Travel More Efficient, Comfortable
The survival rate of an airline “accident” is somewhere around 95 percent and, ironically, most injuries actually occur after the plane has come to a stop. The actual odds of being in a plane crash are 1 in 11 million, compared with 1 in 5,000 while driving a car. At the peak of my com... More »
