Todd Sumrall has been a sales professional in the payment services industry since 1997. In 1998, he added a Web site hosting and e-commerce solutions to the services he provides. Following is his winning "Street Smarts" feedback letter:

"I will say it was specifically a 'Street Smarts' column years ago, maybe it wasn't called 'Street Smarts' then, but about three years ago I read an article Ed Freedman wrote in The Green Sheet, and after reading that article, I joined Total Merchant Services and have never regretted my decision.

"I had inquired into a relationship with Total almost a year previous, but didn't pursue it at that time. It was specifically that article that Ed wrote that made me want to join the company. He showed in that article how important relationships with agents are to him personally. I also remember he said something about cleaning boats in college in the article. That stuck out because I've cleaned boats, and still do after diving.

"Since I've joined Total, my residuals per account increased, I received some good training from them in Colo., and I feel secure with Total, which I, in times' past, have not felt secure with some other ISOs."—Todd Sumrell
