When I got in to sales it was the first time in my life I had disposable income. Before that I was living paycheck to paycheck and could never afford to get anything extra if it was not budgeted for months in advance.
My first commision check came just in time for my sons second bithday. I was going to book him a party at a bounce house place but that seemed like a waste of money given it would be like $275 for a two hour party.
So instead I bought him an entire bounce house for him to keep.
In all seriousness this profession has changed my life and I am forever grateful for the opportunities I have been given and the people who God, nature, or the space aliens have placed in my path to mentor and develop me.
What "stupid" purchases did you all make when you first realized you had money to spend?
