How did I go from a $70 commission to a $20k+ commission?

The first sale I ever made paid me less than $70.00 when I got my commission check.


5 years later I made my first commission of $20,000.00+ from a single transaction.


Can you imagine if I had given up way back when?


I even had a sale that I screwed up so badly, I owed the company money!


That was embarrassing.


I have felt the pit of my stomach in the worst way possible during my sales career.


And I have felt my heart overflowing with an unimaginable joy.


Winning a deal against 10+ other competitors.


Landing the largest single transaction in company history.


Looking across the table at a prospect, hearing them say “we are excited about this.”


But regardless of the good or the bad.


I kept the same perseverance.


I continued to push myself forward.


I never spent too much time in a moment or allowed myself to become complacent.


I built on my sales acumen.


I educated myself in non-traditional ways.


I took risks, even when I didn’t have to.


I built something that most didn’t believe I could.


The Sales Rebellion is a series of dreams for me coming to fruition in a way I never imagined.


And it all started with a $70.00 commission check that lit me up so bright you would have thought I was about to burn alive.


I’m curious, what lights you up?

Dale Dupree I can relate. I started in the copier business October 2019. First commission check was $137. Went up a little the past 2 months and just got my commission for July and was $4000....Taking steps to get better and grow. In the enterprise/SLED space it goes from frast to famile quickly but working on keeping the pipe full and mapping out ... See more
