Hi, I think you are doing the right thing asking for advice before you act. My history in sales is long and I have enjoyed success. I will give you impartial advice if you want it. I can tell you that for many like me, money is important but the the only motivator to work hard. To me the key is being dealt with honorably by my employer and given recognization for my contribution.
I have experience in structuring compensation... Honestly, the easiest thing to do is talk for 30 minutes. I'll tell you more about me and get info to help.
My reason to do this? I have freinds who own their businesses and have suffered from bad decisions re: sales... I think you can do something more fair to you AND give your friend the opportunity to EARN more.
My name is Mark Moe aka moeman my number is 909-228-0094. If you want to talk call me after Monday.
...and to be clear, I'm not looking for some kind angle for myself other than more experience in these matters.
