Peter’s Viewpoint

“I grew up in a village where families knew one another by name, and education and faith were part of everyday life. The youngest of six children, I learned to love competition, embrace good sportsmanship and dream big. My mother influenced me the most. She encouraged me in too many ways to count. She gave me a copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking when I was young. Dr. Peale’s words stay with me, including: ‘Change your thoughts, change your world’ and ‘It is always too early to quit.’

“When I was 21 years old, my boss handed me Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, considered by many to be the guide to a well-rounded, successful life. If I had to choose one quote from Mr. Hill, it is: ‘Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.’

“I find joy helping others, be it teaching and coaching a sales rep achieve results beyond his or her expectations, or helping a merchant find the best value in payment processing. Most business owners strive to live the American Dream and create a good life for their families. But navigating the business world, with its complexities and regulations, is a challenge. We’re proud to help simplify one aspect with payment processing products and services.”
