SBRN has been a great resource for our clients – and us as well. During our recent acquisition of a colleague firm, we hired an SBRN member for every step of the transaction. Our fellow members are true experts who helped make the process easier on us. Bottom line: SBRN benefits everyone involved.
I work with small businesses and they really need to have resources of all types. So, I really look at myself as a consultant for them. And I always tell businesses that they need a good banker, a good accountant, a good payroll person, a good lawyer. And so this is the perfect opportunity for me to be able to refer them to an SBRN member to help them grow their business.
My name is Cathy Bracken, and I’m the owner of Cyberauthorize Merchant Services. 0ur niche is e-commerce and mobile solutions for accepting credit cards. This is a very easy organization for me to endorse. I’m not paid to do this. I pay them to be here. The membership, I’ve never regretted that. It’s been wonderful. The leadership is good. I’ve had the opportunity to lead and chair here for two years, a couple years back. We all support each other. We all refer to one another and there’s not a lot of pressure to do so. You just do it because you want to and you want to support what it is that they’re doing here.
