    It's one thing to have a job, it's another thing to like it...but are you 'good' at it?
    I have a job.
    I don't really like it.
    I'm a sales manager.
    I'm sometimes good at it. The selling part I have down solid. The management part...I struggle.

    Gat,

    I've dodged management like the plague for my entire career for this exact reason. Middle management sucks out the soul of a salesperson.

    Demote yourself back to a rep and make more money than the fucking VP's. :wink:

    My mantra: "Sales Rep or CEO" there is no other option :grad:

    I find the management part of my job is definitely the hardest. I have a hair trigger temper (shocking) and I find it difficult to deal with stupid customers and idiotic employees. I don't mean all of them are, of course, but we do have some doozies.

    Being the owner/manager I can't just use common sense and the occasional dose of sarcasm. It's a real challenge.

    Yes I'm damn good. So good that they can't find anyone else to do what I do..... yet they still underpay me.

    I fucking rock. I love what I do. I can tease information out of clients and deliver what they want.

    Absolutely yes. Conducting group and family therapy is more challenging, as the cognitive ping-pong of interpersonal dynamics is fucking exhausting. Also, I don't think I'm particularly good at it. I sure as hell don't enjoy it. Put an individual in front of me, I don't care what age, and I'll rock.

    I'm a solid professional an I'm paid really well. However, today, I'm working from my house after deciding that I didn't feel like making a 50 mile commute to the office. Maybe my attitude holds me back..........ahhhh who fucking cares.
