My name is Clint Cheek, I am the CEO of ProxyPay. We are an entrepreneur’s resource. Many times, I have wondered what I want to be when I grow up. Do entrepreneurs ever really know? Do they ever really grow up? We open restaurants, bars, plumbing companies, accounting offices, become attorneys, dentists, insurance agents, open bakeries, and a gazillion other types of businesses. I am no different, I have opened many businesses and tried many different things. All of them have been challenging and some have been successful. None of them have been easy. My life has led me to experience so many things and ultimately to found ProxyPay. Business is about people, the people that are our customers and the people that help us stay in business—our employees. With employees come their families, their personalities, and their needs. Employees need to grow, be paid, and feel satisfied.
Running a business is hard work and it is not for the weak. We must be strong leaders, early risers, attentive to details, kind, patient, and relentless. It can be exhausting. The biggest drain on my mental focus was the bills. Does this sound familiar? When I was an employee, payday always seemed so far away, now I constantly find myself saying “it’s payday AGAIN?” The point is things like paying bills, filing taxes, maintaining insurances, and keeping employees satisfied and
