This is just a general female question but if you invite a new girlfriend out to your friends event and she brings up that she thinks multiple guy friends if yours are cute would you be turned off? I generally take that as a sign that you are boy crazy and have a lack of boundaries because these people are my close friends and I generally will not invite you out again.

I’d like to apologize to my parent’s neighbors and anyone else that heard me screaming like a lunatic at my dog. He wasn’t listening the first few times I called him to come inside nicely. 😤 It takes me sounding like I’m having a nervous breakdown for him to wag his tail like, “🤪 Why didn’t you just say so?” Pic of the pupper giving me the death stare behind my dad’s feet.

Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans
We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k
Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors
I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).
Thoughts? Things to consider?
