Heartland Payments Aids Entrepreneurs

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost every aspect of life has had to adapt including business. Heartland Payments, a direct credit card processer to Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, can help businesses during COVID-19 make seamless, secure and touchfree purchases. It can also include a transition from everything in-store to adding an online or mobile platform.

“The curbside pickup, online ordering and overall e-commerce has increased dramatically with the pandemic,” said Ty Franklin, Relationship Manager for Heartland. “We have ways for retail, restauTyler Franklin rants, service professionals and others to collect payments online or by mobile in addition to what is in their facility,” said Ty, who is a Penn State grad, and became associated with Heartland because he 412-737-0802 tylerfranklin@heartland.us was given an opportunity to start his own business, eventually own his portfolio and build a personal brand through Heartland’s business solutions. “One area in particular would be helping businesses who are cash only or do not offer online ordering. Our Heartland Guest phone app comes with online ordering and is helping customers adapt to this pandemic with our technology,” Ty said.

In addition to helping customers accept payments in-store, online, on the go (mobile) and via gift cards through Heartland’s different point of sale methods, Heartland also specializes in HR/Payroll, Customer Engagement and Lending options for businesses. “Our motto is ‘Entrepreneurs Respectfully Serving Entrepreneurs,’” said Ty, who takes a different approach to business.

“I believe kindness is the answer—in business and in life. So many reps are worried about their paychecks, as opposed to building a nice long-lasting relationship with business owners and bringing value to their business,” said Ty. “I think having a personal approach that is all about the customer and how I can help them sets me apart from others.”

Chiropractic & Naturopathic Medicine: Bringing You the Best of Integrative Medicine 

 At Appalachia Chiropractic & Wellness, our team holds a unique holistic care model striving to make each and every patient feel and function at their highest level without drugs or surgery. We offer the community a whole system approach. Patients are never rushed. They are heard and truly cared for. We value the doctor and patient relationship, as we believe it is part of the treatment. 

 Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine are both forms of natural medicine, as they hold the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself after obstacles to health have been removed and proper care is given. They also both seek to restore and maintain optimum health by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing process.  

 Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine complement each other very well. Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal and nervous system conditions, which often means chronic pain. They treat structural misalignments and muscular imbalances whereas naturopathic doctors complement by adding complementary treatment using herbal medicine, diet and nutrition, homeopathy, lifestyle modifications, stress reduction and other areas to help symptom relief and optimize chronic disease management.   

For example, someone who suffers from back pain or arthritis, Dr. Horne can offer spinal manipulation or muscle release whereas Dr. Chan can address inflammation, diet and nutritional therapies. Or for someone who experiences frequent headaches, Dr. Horne can correct a structural misalignment and increase blood flow to the area, whereas Dr. Chan can look for underlying contributors such as chronic stress, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, dehydration and food or environmental sensitivities.  

 Other common conditions treated include: sports injuries, sciatica, disc bulge/herniation, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, sinus congestion, weight loss, digestive and hormonal conditions.
