I'm flattered. I voted for myself because you know...I'd want that money. But I find it super difficult to decide between all of those users...they're all definitely closers. Might have to give it to @poweredbycaffeineย though.

I echo what you said above, team selling a deal is actually pretty fun cause the things you miss your counterpart will catch a lot of times. and in these cases, I don't have much of a problem with a revenue split for quota.ย

Before I vote, I need to know does this deal involved selling/promoting Kahlua?ย

Even if it doesn't, Kahlua is a powerful mechanism for persuasion. You're always going to need someone at the table that knows how to pour it, filter it, speak about its history and distilling process, and keep it flowing. It's remarkable what Kahlua can help you accomplish. Hell, I almost convinced my grandma to put me as the sole beneficiary in her will (she has 8 grandkids) after a few sips until my stupid cousin caught wind of what I was doing and intercepted the last glass I was passing to her -- it would've been the deal closer.
