Career shift advice sought

A former mortgage broker, I'm considering a career in the payments business, and it looks like The Green Sheet is an industry hub. I was wondering if you could recommend a few ISOs for me to interview. I feel your perspective would help get be started on the right foot.

John Gray

John,

Thanks for your vote of confidence. We are dedicated to the education and success of ISOs and merchant level salespeople. However, we play an advisory role; we do not recommend specific companies. And nothing can substitute for your own research and judgment.

We suggest that you peruse the display ads and the Resource Guide found in each issue of The Green Sheet and GSQ. (Our publications exist both in print and online at www.greensheet.com.) Make a note of the ISOs that catch your eye as potential matches for your needs, and give them a call.

Also, try posting a request for information on GS Online's MLS Forum. It's easy to register on our site, at www.greensheet.com. Click Register Today! in the upper right hand corner and follow the prompts. Then click on the Forums link found just below our masthead at the top of the page.

Once you go 'Green'...

I saw The Green Sheet on a colleague's desk and asked to borrow it. Now I'm hooked. I like the news coverage, the thoughts shared by your advisory board, the educational articles - I found each of those motivating in a different way - and I was wowed by the article on interchange. It did put the issue in perspective for me, as someone new to the bankcard industry. I'm happy to have found this resource so early in my career.
