But now I have my life in tact to where I can balance things out a bit

Great question.

Let me throw a monkey wrench in your plans.

Don't get distracted.

What you need to do is become an expert in your sales organization's and your job's pay structure, and work like the most ruthless motherfucker they have ever seen on what pays the most. I have no idea what your system is but if you aren't on some kind of performance based compensation you aren't in sales. Study it, figure out its tricks and ins and outs.

Asking should I ____________________ anything other than should I go for whatever pays the most is a distraction from your only purpose in sales. I know that this is hard to understand but you are going to be bombarded inside and out with bullshit which has NOTHING to do with your sales, including your question in this thread.

Let me give you two examples. Some places have scaled commissions that once you meet some numbers you get higher rates etc. Maybe at your place after you sell the 5th doorbell you get a 5% raise in the rest of the months commissions. You need to scheme the system and work hard to get to that 5th as fast as possible. Another example from a friend of mine, he told me there was a used car at his car dealer that did not sell for 400 days, and he put a $1500 minimum commission on it, and every salesmen on his team showed it to every person who walked in regardless of what they asked for and it was sold the SAME DAY. It was the same piece of shit car, but the structure was there to motivate the sales guys. If you arent "gaming" your structure you aren't thinking.

Let's face it, whatever corporate bs you have to put up with you are selling your time and services and energy for $x,xxx per month. Do the math and make the most of it and stop getting distracted with the 10,000 things around you.

When you know these things in and out, you will already know that approaching girls has nothing directly whatsoever to do with your next paycheck.
