As entrepreneurs in the payments industry, we've experienced the highs and lows of building and running an Independent Sales Organization (ISO). In this episode, we share our personal stories, memorable moments, and the pivotal role mentorship has played in our success. Here are three key takeaways from the episode:

2️⃣ Cultivating a Collaborative Culture: At Secure Bancard, we value mentorship and believe in providing learning opportunities to our team. We discuss the importance of fostering a collaborative culture where employees are encouraged to explore different areas of the business and continuously expand their knowledge. Together, we've built a team that is not afraid to embrace change and drive innovation.

3️⃣ Lessons from the Past: Our past experiences at various companies and environments have shaped our approach to building Secure Bancard. We reflect on the valuable skills, knowledge, and insights we gained throughout our journey, and how they have influenced our current practices.
