In my last blog, I shared my goal of finding an industry related company to share my talent and knowledge with for the rest of my working life. It is fitting for me to let you know the search is over. The eagle has landed!

I previously mentioned I will continue working as contributing editor of LCT Magazine and churn out feature articles to help operators grow their business. I also shared my new gig with Drivingresults.org as a facilitator of educational roundtable discussions for its membership. However, that wasn't enough for me. I'm a workaholic who gave up the excitement and adrenaline rush of running a 24/7/365 business. Now, I have found the perfect "third" home I was searching for.

In case you missed it at the International LCT Show, I asked Jeff Brodsly, CEO of Chosen Payments to hire me while introducing him at the "B4 Business -- Structured Networking" event kicking off the show. He said, "YES!"

I specifically went after Jeff and his company because of his industry involvement that extends far beyond simply being a credit card processor. Jeff is serving on boards in the industry. He is a trade show sponsor. He generously donates his profits to state associations. Chosen was recommended by the NLA as its preferred credit card processor. There are many vendors who serve the industry and make money off the back of the industry, but few have rolled up their sleeves and opened up their wallets like Chosen Payments.

When I learned more about the recent launch of The Chosen Technology Group (CTG), I knew this is where I wanted to be. CTG has great solutions for after-hours and weekend phone answering that meet the needs of a small to mid-size operation. Having been an operator for more than two decades, I understand the issues small- to medium-size operator face each day. As the new marketing manager for Chosen, I hope to share the services and technology offered with my peers to meet those needs. It feels good to be home in a new house.
