Sitting in my car posting on Dawgs most of the day and entering fake notes in my CRM.

I usually ended up spending twice as much as I made on those days... Go finish your Christmas shopping.
Selling anything for a living (except at your Dad's vacuum emporium) = a person I admire.
Especially if your salary is mostly commission (unlike people who work at their Dad's vacuum emporium).
I live off my salary. Commission goes straight to savings every month.
See, that is why I admire you people. I just am too comfortable working for a regular salary, 401k w/8% matching contribution, affordable healthcare etc...
I am lucky enough to deal with only about a dozen salespersons, who I have had business relationships for years. And, I have heard stories that make my head hurt.
Specifically people who sell things in the graphic arts industry; specifically cut sheet paper products. Those poor bastards have been fucked.
By lucky, I mean they basically don't have to sell us anything; we have specific materials/services that we buy from them on a regular basis.
I'm in the healthcare field. Tons of competition, but more than enough opportunity. Thankfully I've reached the point where just a few text messages scores me some easy to close leads
do you sell shitty cars from Korea..or something a little more dignified?
Drop your card in the card fishbowl of your favorite restaurant, eat, go watch hunger games.
Sales is tough but nothing like the rush of closing a deal. Much respect to anyone doing this (except schmoopy of course). One month its steaks for dinner the next its canned beans.
