So they pay me mileage, for what I drive, and they pay me hourly… 11 dollars an hour. There’s talk about what they call bonuses, but I know it only as commission. And when your getting hourly plus commission you know your in big business.
And I wanted to write this to you to report my progress and to notify you of the changes this website will be experiencing over the next few days. You see, I want to write about sales now. I’ve written some about schizophrenia, and I want to move beyond my illness now. It’s a chemical imbalance in my brain, and not a result of the bad things I’ve done in my life, or so my grandmother says. I spoke with her on Friday, yesterday, Feburary 10th, 2017.
And I told my grandmother, just as I’m telling you now, that I went out for 3 days and came back with 2 orders! One was for 450 dollars! It was only my first full week working the sales job and already I have orders! I haven’t even gotten my button up shirts, business cards, or name tags, and already I have sales!
This is obviously great news for me, my company, and everyone else involved. Somebody gets to eat some food they can love, and I get to build a relationship! How wonderful it is when your work pays off! This should be an inspiration to schizophrenics and those who want to make it in sales that it can be done! And it can be done no matter what your going through! You may have to eat it for a while, working endlessly and getting nowhere, but keep plugging at it and you’ll get there. I’m living proof.
Now I don’t want to get ahead of myself. It’s only two sales. I don’t want to be writing about building long term sales success after making only 2 sales, but I sure am a testament that if you work hard, read books, and keep a journal your going to do well.
And read the right books. Things that are going to inspire you to take action in the direction of your financial dreams. Your relationship dreams. I want to sell but personally I think it would be awesome if I could set up a passive income stream from an ebook and this website that would be totally automatic! Do the work once and it pays you for the rest of your life! While you sleep! And all the better the good reviews. And if you do your job as a writer then there will be no shortage of good reviews.
And I don’t want to bring politics into it but in Donald Trump’s inauguration speech he said at the end that “God was protecting us”. And I believe that’s true. I also believe he’s not only doing it for the USA!, but God is protecting the entire world, and every person in it. There’s no doubt bad things can happen, but it’s about taking the lessons of those bad things an applying them to one’s life. That’s about as political as I get.
And when I hear voices, because I do hear voices, voices that tell me their scared, that their mom is scared, it makes me think of how me selling might make someone fear for my life. It can be a scary world out there, with lots of crazy people…(but most of them good, and interested in forward progress) and these people are concerned for me. I just tell them I am fine and press on with my day. That’s the way I know how to do it, I’m a machine.
But that’s really all I wanted to tell you. I made one sale for 450 dollars and then I made another for 7 box lunches in the same day! It worked! I haven’t made any sales in years, and this is my first time back in the game. I seek to improve and make more sales! I think you can get an hourly job and work your way into sales! Even if your schizophrenic! Let your bosses trust you and you will get the best jobs!
My bosses are even talking about getting me a desk in the office! And they were talking about giving me a raise to 11 dollars an hour and they did it. That’s a lot especially if your getting bonuses. And there’s talk about getting me bonuses! I’m so happy I’ve been telling everyone about my success and celebrating it every chance I get.
Really though, now that I’m finishing this post and it’s Sunday, and I have to go back to work tomorrow, the celebrating is coming to an end. The work will never stop and neither will I.
