Most small business owners are the hardest working folks I know. There is no such thing as a paid holidays or paid vacation. Saving $5k a year on merchant fees could mean the difference between funding an IRA or not.
I didn't realize somebody else's IRA account was my problem. /sarcasm
Either they take Amex or I don't shop in their business. They can lose a few bucks in merchants fees or whatever business I would normally bring in. Their choice.
The sob story of the small buisness owner yields no tears here.
