WHY the Smiley? Lots of people ask us “What in the heck does a SMILEY FACE have to do with Credit Card Processing and why does everything TMC does, have a Smiley attached to it?”- we love the question and here is the simple answer. MOST business owners do not find JOY in working with their credit card processor- in fact, quite the opposite! So when we decided to take care of businesses and their processing needs, we knew we had to be different. The SMILEY FACE sends a certain message: We are glad to see you, hear you, work with you and to be of service. We CARE about you and we will do everything we can to put a smile on your face. Credit card processing is one of the products we provide but Taking Care of People and delivering a SMILE WORTHY experience is who we are and WHY we do what we do.

Start With Why: How great leaders inspire everyone to take action

Simon Sinek

As the leader of a company, the title made a BIG PROMISE that I was eager to accept! I am happy to say that the book did not disappoint!

 

The writing is witty and draws amazing visual pictures. Even though this is a ‘business’ book, it will have you laughing and also cause you to think deeply about how to stay focused on what is REALLY important. As you lead your organization, your team and most importantly your FAMILY– the core message of this book will help you stay true to what is important to you, it will help you remember your WHY when things get rocky! Many strong leaders lose their way when they lose sight of their WHY and START WITH WHY provides the necessary tools to keep that vision focused and strong.

 

I highly recommend this amazing book and would encourage you to read it and buy lots of copies to share with the people you want to help have a phenomenal future!

The Compound Effect: Jumpstart Your Income, Your Life, Your Success

Darren Hardy

I learned that the little things make all the difference by reading this book! Rewiring our companies and our personal lives for maximized SUCCESS is more about the little things we do every day than those massive decisions so many think are responsible for failure or success.
 
The book is a quick read, filled with simple steps to make achieving your goals inevitable. I could not put it down and finished it rather quickly.  The writing is FANTASTIC, filled with ‘back to basic’ tips and the exercises are real eye openers! Darren Hardy highlights the power of compounding good decisions and how your daily choices can lead you to your desired end result or, in the instance of a lack of focus or poor choices, a lackluster performance.
 
I highly recommend this book as it will help you to take your business and personal goals to the next level!!

Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Learn

John C. Maxwell

I learned that even though we always strive for success (which is our desired end result) we actually learn more when we lose. It is better to take action and fail (as long as we learn something from the failure) than to do nothing.

John is a great storyteller sharing stories from his personal experiences along with the experiences of other well-known people who have overcome shortcomings and mistakes on their way to success. He lines out a roadmap to learn from our losses by breaking down the components of how we can learn when we miss the mark. Many people give up too soon when success is not achieved right away. This book gives us the tools to use to recognize that there are lessons to be learned from our defeats and gives us the courage to fail forward.

 

I highly recommend this book because it encourages us to take action no matter what the end result knowing we will either celebrate when we succeed or learn and grow when we fail. Either way, there is always power when we take action!

Developing the Leader Within You 2.0

John C. Maxwell

As a Maxwell Trainer, I have read this book MANY times and I have taught it to organizations on numerous occasions. My biggest takeaway is that Leadership (more specifically EXCELLENT Leadership) is an ongoing and never-ending process. Each time I open this book, I am called to task on a few things, reminded of more impactful and empowering ways to communicate and encouraged to continue my leadership journey.

Each chapter is jam-packed with valuable lessons and insights that can be immediately deployed to encourage, engage & inspire everyone in your life- starting with YOU.

I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone who has a desire to be the best leader they can be and to anyone who wants to bring their friends and family along the journey with them!
