Gonna change things up a bit, today…
Below are some people/businesses that have provided me with outstanding service over the past few years. In fact, they’ve done such a good job fixing all my problems for me I hereby bestow upon them the prestigious title of:
“Ben Settle Approved”
Yes hoss, they get my seal of approval.
(Which is as rare as hens teeth these days…)
Anyway, here they are:
1. American Express (credit card & merchant account)
Whether you’re applying for a card or a merchant account, these are the CLASSIEST people you’ll ever talk to.
Yes, classy, that’s the word.
In fact, this may sound dorky (it is kinda dorky), but…
If I had a bad day (I don’t have bad days, but IF I did…) I’d probably think up some lame excuse to call American Express just to have my spirits lifted by one of their customer service reps. Not to mention the killer cash-back offers they have where I now pay for everything I can with my American Express card.
Don’t leave home without it, babycakes.
2. Selby Marketing (printing & mailing services)
I’ve written about this outfit before.
If you have any printing, mailing, etc that needs doing, Rich, Trina and Michelle run a fine oiled machine. They treat your business like it’s their own, and in the 2+ years I’ve used them, I have NEVER had a single problem with them:
3. Becki Maxson (transcription services)
Becki Maxson is like the “American Express” of transcription.
And, uncannily accurate (I don’t know how she does it).
Plus, her rates are generous, too.
Her website is at:
4. Mr. Subtle (Design services)
Hands down my favorite designer.
The cool thing about Mr. Subtle is not just that he holds goo-roos in even more contempt than I do (and relentlessly mocks them in ways that have you laughing for days — and even weeks — later)… but his work ALWAYS exceeds my expectations.
Plus, he knows direct response AND design.
A rare combo these days.
Anyway, here’s his site:
5. Bob Montgomery (incorporation services)
I only recently met Bob Montgomery, as I needed help setting a new LLC up in Oregon after my recent move.
I’m not a DIY’er with these things.
And he made the entire process 100% painless.
The URL below is for Oregon, but he does incorporation services in every state:
6. Russell Fox (accounting)
I don’t know if he’s taking new clients on or not. But what I DO know is, I’ve gone through accountants like underwear over the past 11+ years and Russ (who is an enrolled agent) is by FAR the best I’ve used.
Plus, his blog is highly entertaining.
(In a dry humor kinda way…)
Always a good, informative read:
7. Email Players
You thought I wasn’t going to sneak in a plug for my own high quality, life-changing product?
Oh ye of little faith…
OK, that’s a wrap.
