Pro-Tips For Processing Payments in Your Business

Today I want to share something that's been going on behind the scenes here at "She Takes on the World" this year. It's also something that's affected most successful online entrepreneurs I know, and some entrepreneurs have lost their businesses because of it.

And yet, no one really talks about it... until now, that is.

Imagine being in the middle of an amazingly successful launch, with a big wave of revenue coming in, when the payment processing company you're using suddenly informs you they've put a hold on your account.

With no warning, all that money you've worked so hard for is now out of reach -- but you still have salaries to pay, affiliates to compensate, not to mention your rent or mortgage payment to make.

It's a scary place to be in and that's the situation I found myself in at the beginning of the year. I'm committed to sharing the UPS and the DOWNS of my story with you, because there are a lot of valuable lessons you can take away from my story that every online business owner should know.

Join me for today's episode and find out what you can do to protect yourself and help prevent this from happening to you.
