Welcome! This web site is here to assist you with the selection and management of your merchant account. On top of that I point you to other resources that will help your business grow, because let’s face it, if your business isn’t growing you are not going to need a merchant account for very long! So the goal of this web site, simply stated, is to reduce your costs of doing business and expand your revenue.

I have been an entrepreneur since I was a little kid. It all started when I created a movie theater in my parent’s garage at the age of eight. I would check out a 16mm film projector and some Little Rascals films from the local library. Then ride my bike to the neighborhood liquor store to purchase candy to resell during the movies. It was a fun start to learning about business and that was really only reason I did it – to have fun.
In my vocational life I have had times when I was an employee. I was a manager at UPS, a Pastor in a church and a salesman. I have also been the CEO of a commercial roofing company, owner and manager of a mortgage company and now I have started a new company focused on providing the very best merchant account service available.
Each of my previous occupations have led me to where and who I am today and I would not change the path I have walked on one bit. I have succeeded often and failed more times than I can count, but through it all I have learned invaluable lessons to prepare me for my current venture – Cocard Synergy.
Now I am focused on creating strong relationships with merchants and other payment service providers for the purpose of building a business I am proud of. Put simply, I am on a mission to build the very bet merchant account provider in the market place.
I love business, entrepreneur and blogging and am overjoyed to working with all three.
