Update: Last minute commission meeting

Had the last minute commission meeting today that I mentioned a few days back.


Thanks to @poweredbycaffeine, @GrizzleMcThornBody and everyone else that posted advice was great even if I didn't need to use all of it! Definitely appreciated having it in my back pocket.


The company I'm at recently had our main AE leave, so I've been covering his stuff till they hire a replacement.


As a result, they decided to add a bunch of accelerators to my comp plan.


So it turns out that not every day in sales is a kick in the teeth.


Few beers in, and about to have a few more this Friday.


Enjoy your weekend's savages.
