Quick tech question on credit card processing

I've helped a new start up with building an online commerce site on Wordpress using the WooCommerce plugin. They set up a merchant account but now want to move to Simplify Commerce which is integrated with WooCommerce and has great terms. Kind of crazy, but they need to do a credit card transaction with the previous company to get their set up costs back but don't want to purchase a $79 extension from WooCommerce to do the transaction (it has to be through their site). What other commerce…See More

One strong step we can take is listening to the right music at just the right level as we work on our project.

4 Things a Navy Seal Would Never Say (and We Shouldn’t Either)

Posted on October 15, 2014 at 7:00am 6 Comments

Entrepreneur Magazine interviewed a former Navy Seal. You'll never hear these words cross the lips of these high performers. How can this benefit our internal speak, our families, work and business .... and all of life?

U.S. Navy Seals in training (image credit: Wikipedia)

  1. "I can't do that."
  2. "Sorry I'm late."
  3. "I'll never hurt your feelings."
  4. "I don't know."

see the complete post at TrueNorth Quest ...

Is weak thinking and speaking minimizing our lives? What about the lives of those we influence? Does a “good person” have to be soft all the time?

Thoughts?…

Brian,

Welcome to the Online Selling and ecommerce Group here at the 48 Days community.  I just looked at your site.  Love the niche and the site.  Both are great examples of the new online selling. It's not a picture and a price.  Instead it's about answering someone's problem, building trust and offering something of so much value that people want to purchase it from you.  Old fashion selling is dead, now it's about helping your customer purchase.  Excited to have you as part of our growing group.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the friend invite and the great advice on my question in the "Write It Forward" group. 

Have a tremendous day!

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS One other thing...I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. Feel free to check it out. I really think you'll get a ton out of both these resources.
