So my wife started back to work yesterday, my daughter starts 4th grade tomorrow, and my one son starts High School on Friday, my other son already is in freshman year of college 2 weeks already.


I work out of an office in the basement of my house, going out to customer sites 2-3 days a week, all summer long I have 3 kids and my wife, storming through my office like they live here ( even if they do).

Oh a peaceful house, where I can work (or post ) the day away.

Tell your bosses I said you guys need better commission %'s.
I was pissed when I earned 122% to quota, and my tech only hit 100% (note, he had 5 other sales reps. So I gained 22% over, and it didn't hit him)
