"I just WanNa sit at the beach I. Just WanNa look out the window I just want to play basketball or actually I wanted to do with my children by how can I do that and so I went online inbound a position In a one, hundred percent commission sales opportunity. before and to California wasn't successful at all initially. Because he was trying to do with the corporate way with you know the sales pitch in the book and. Corporate approach in just got turned down. At. Every business that I went to drop it right now. So you know what? Let me just Relate to people from Detroit Michigan School of hard knocks in the thing I I know how to do is connect with people. You know winner talk we're not to talk sometimes and I did that in super. Just to speed it up really quick I. had a triple my income that year a quadruple did the next year. But then I realized that what I was doing wasn't what I thought. I was doing meaning that I was selling the product that I didn't even understand myself rice. Even though I had dropped the sales pitch book, still have the spirit of that particular company in the industry itself, and that is the spirit of confusion. So you know I was selling merchant programs where the be rates were. There'd be tough with at least not by Terminal Benign, bucks you Lisa for three hundred bucks. This is especially for brick and mortar businesses. You can lease terminal could cost ninety nine dollars you can. Literally Lisa the terminal but three to sometimes a thousand dollars per month for forty eight months in into the least they do not own the machine and it was just you know even the in the way we would pitch them. It was just a real messy thing once I realized what I was doing because I had never read the contract I had never really met the contract myself. I was just starting the program. And once I realized I had to move decision it was totally against particular companies I guess goes to really client on what's really happening behind the scenes by the time decline realize what going on it was too late they were locked into. A four, five year contract with all kinds of these anti get out of it was it will require legal entanglement right with them as you have to hire attorneys go through this other stuff in its contract. So it's Kinda hard to get out of it. So. I had to make a decision to leave that company, lead all the money that had all the recurring incumbent had to. It's up deleted lead cable right and so I did that I went to work with another company and in six months I had. Replaced the incumbent Henry the other company, man those bags were not. They were robbing me and I was by taking advantage of announced robbing Murchison's basically right or Robin clients. So. Same thing had been there all of a sudden. They create money out of thin air when I say thin air veneer. So as an example, there's something called Pi compliance that every business needs to happen in particular Brigham mortar businesses by you don't necessarily. Do but something healthy you it helps protect your business. So it's normally like twenty bucks. If you don't, you know complete the survey online and that's the highest heard reporting by dollars. These guys were charging a hundred and seventy nine, seventy, nine dollars per month. So imagine. Ten thousand clients all of a sudden get charged a hundred seventy nine dollars per mile. Yeah. It was desperately significant million millions. So one of the clients called me and said Hey. What's this? Out You, know what just caucus now reminding I'm a tonight says up this other companies will I really don't know what's going on behind the scenes the company tells them Oh no, we'll give you a refund get from like wait a minute I hadn't even paid off when you get it through Castro and so I had to make another decision again, do I stay on this program and just allow the back office or operations or the people you know behind the curtain so to speak to make all these decisions that client world in neither am I aware of in order to make money but allow me to be the face that. Interface with the client. So I had to leave again in melody with the business partner of mine, and we started our program with the company called I did is the largest processing platform in America and Interestingly enough this where I gotta be careful what I say this is when we realized that God this. Duplicate like this is this is the granddaddy of this is where it all comes from. And we thought we were in control, but we were not in control. There was still coming from everywhere but not just to the class they were even digging out. So not as successful as we were running backwards economically financially at the same time Ding the hell out of it's meant easier visa with a hey, what can explain this o'hare here's twenty seats right? It's like you know at more chaos like the Tower of Babel. So to speak. So we said you know what hockey we actually One other thing happened that was really critical. One. Clean. I think was an old lady called and said you guards overcharged me think might have been seventeen cents or something like that. And we might wow seventeen says that come up. So we not somebody in the back off. It wasn't just hurry. It would tons applies that were charged the so we called This particular company is particularly at blurb right and we said, hey, recharging these clients can fix this al Qaeda no problem. Because we were in charge of the underwriting we were entrusted the risk they were. This sales gene handled a little bit of customers in tech support the actual rates in transactions and things like that were really controlled on the back end. So they said, they said, it was forty five days thirty days we call them forty five days. This just give us more time management will liquor decision we call back after sixty days management said, oh. You know what we decided that we are going to refund anyone unless it's over twenty dodge. We're like we already know is not over twenty five dollars but now we're talking about thousands upon thousands upon thousands of accounts that overcharged in. So we will let to foot the bill even though we're not the ones who charged overcharged the clients so violently got to a position where you know. They has to be another way to do this right were were we glorified those Webs as tired, which is what we were in. So we got to where we are today where we became a full service provider in his many different levels in payment processing. But if you're according to ISO standard independent organization that highest level that you can get to is considered a full service payment provider explain that you know. Program if you like me to. Actually jump into that I. DON'T WANNA. Go to super deep into the weeds that don't want to confuse the lose fire nation but I really WanNa make the point to our listeners to you fire nation right now this is a critical part of your business I mean whether we're talking seventeen cents seventeen dollars one, hundred and seventy dollars per month these things add up and these things can make or break businesses over time because listen they can allow you to invest more and marketing to bring on more people on your team when you are paying the right amount and not getting over charged and doing all these different things. So let's talk about exactly what a full-service payment provider is. Really kind of Focus Focus for the entrepreneur for our listeners fire nation.

Now, it's Michigan schools and government credit union offering three point one zero percent on a twenty three months CD. Now, I called them the lady, I talked to was kind of flattered and pleased.

This is democracy. Now I made me Goodman, our roundtable of teachers and activists around the schools and what's happening to the black and Brown children that children of color throughout the United States in schools is includes EM Isan Markowitz, restorative Justice coordinator in high school teacher teachers unite board member. We're also joined by the author of lift us up. Don't push us out Mark Warren voices from the frontlines, the educational Justice movement. The book just out zacchaeus, Kara Jabbar with racial Justice. Now and dignity in schools campaign as well as g. tube Brown with journey for Justice alliance in Chicago. EM. If you can talk about what restorative Justice means this pre school to prison pipeline, it's just a standing and the disproportionate number of children of color who are going through this pipeline and what suspensions mean. Hi, thanks for having me in for being here. It's going to be here with t to and with Saikia Mark. So restorative Justice in this context in the way that we're advocating for it to be grown at at school sites around around the country is a relational approach to discipline. We talk about it in sort of three tiers and the base of the tears is intentional community and relationship building, which is shame that we have to even put that in there as that schools are not doing and not prioritizing not allocating resources to. But as you heard from g to who explained very clearly what's happening to our to starving schools across across the country, especially in black and Brown neighborhoods, there is there's an intentional community building a relationship building. Once those relationships are there, restorative Justice practices are are there to help people reflect on behavior and change from. Those behaviors. A lot of that looks like mediation. It looks like guidance interventions. It looks like community circles related to conflict that's happen. Who get suspended in, what are they suspended for? So I mean, you heard from some from other contributors that disproportionately like in New York City, there are twenty seven percent of New York City. Students are black and fifty four of our suspensions fifty, four percent of our suspensions are black students what? Well, they're suspended for all sorts of things, but the, the biggest, the disproportionate suspensions that are happening are around subjected subjective offenses like insubordination or defying authority, which you heard a little bit about from Zaki and from g two. So what that means is that teachers teacher bias is influencing a large number of students that are being suspended even for five days or more for relatively minor offenses, we're not talking about even fighting or. Bringing a weapon to school, we're talking about insubordination or defying authority. So these children, many of them being suspended for defiance. I wanted to go back to g to education, secretary, Betsy DeVos announced to know this. She would allow states to use federal funds to purchase firearms for teachers and school, and please the plan using federal student support academic enrichment grants to pay for guns and training teachers and their use reversing long-standing federal policy, prohibiting federal funds for arming educators talk about the significance of this moving, the money from education to guns would like to make a connection to Betsy DeVos if I could. So that's a device who has been a major contributor to ruining education in the state of Michigan who helped destroy the elected school board in Michigan Detroit and took the Detroit's Michigan schools from near the middle of the Pat. It's almost at the bottom of educational achievement in the United States. Was rewarded with a promotion to be the US education secretary. And so of course, she's going to have policies that outlandish that. Make no sense in regards to education achievement and our hyper political in regards it if us. But there's a problem that I, I don't think that we connect to Arne. Duncan was also unqualified to be superintendent of Chicago public schools that it made him see. Education with chievements flatlined on his watch, massive resistance to school closings. Students doing actions, don't him around the school to prison pipeline, and he was rewarded would become an education secretary of the United States. And what's the real difference between him and Betsy DeVos vouchers. So I think if there was no Arne Duncan, there would be no Betsy device. We have to realize that education is too important for talking points. Education is the education for black people has been a way to combat a suffocating oppression and a way to build a future, fly families and communities across the United States. For immigrant families. It has been a way to make sure that children. Don't have to live in fear and if they can build a future in the United States. So we should be making policy that is rooted in sound educational principle like Arne Duncan sense. His children and university of Kaga laps. They don't have metal detectors in lab school. We have seconds, okay. They don't have overcrowded classrooms. So I think Betsy DeVos is doing what she supposed to do as alter, right, wing, unqualified person in a position, she has no reason to be in other than to advance in gender. We're going to continue this discussion partout and at WebEx in democracy. Now, dot or g. tube Brown of journey for Justice alliance in Chicago, see, son car Jabbar speaking to us from Washington racial Justice. Now, Mark Warren, the book is left us up and an thanks so much. I mean, he Goodman thanks for joining us.
