Credit Card Agent Cape Coral, Florida, Angie “Momma Badger” Gartin provides all types of businesses with unlimited equipment options and low rates. There are many options for your business. Why spend hours researching them when she can do it for you.

As a kid she dreamed of being a secretary. At age 20, she thought she was one lucky gal when she went for a receptionist position at Fitzsimmons, Schroeder & Nelson and ended up being asked to be the legal assistant for attorney Robert Grosser. Mr. Grosser became a close friend and you’ll see in her work history she worked for him and his firm off and on since then. At 23, she became pregnant with her first child and helped attorney Nancy Rahmeyer close her law office so she could become a Court of Appeals Judge. She worked all the way up until she had her daughter. In fact, on Monday, February 26th, she had her and made it to Nancy’s swearing in on Thursday, February 29th.

Her next profession was to be a stay-at-home mom, but when a close friend introduced her to scrapbooking she became hooked and saw dollar signs. She talked her mom into being her business partner and what was her hobby become a business for two reasons: to support her hobby and to make money. She owned a scrapbook store and ran a bed and breakfast for woman to have retreats at during the weekend.

Meanwhile, her husband Sonny Gartin started his own business, Badgers Business Solutions, formerly known as Xcelpay when they resided in Springfield, Missouri. With her secretarial background and creativity she was able to help him run his business. Up until December of 2016, she was helping their credit card clients who needed assistance regarding other businesses needs. Such as designing and maintaining websites, creating marketing materials like brochures and business cards, managing social media sites, even creating menus for restaurants.

In December 2016, the business had grown to need another agent. Instead of hiring another agent, she decided to become one herself. She began referring the extra services the businesses needed to other businesses of which were clients and referral partners. This freed up her time and Debby Bojko’s time, allowing her to be a credit card agent Cape Coral full time.

There you have it. She’s worked for people and for herself. When you see her skills/experience, you will see she dived in and took on all aspects of a business. She loved being a secretary and will always be an entrepreneur.
