I did some work on the side for someone and agreed to a cash rate and that they would pay the tax on it. Now they want me to fill out a 1099 but expect me to pay the tax on what they paid me which was not what we had talked about. There is no original agreement written anywhere etc. They just paid me via Venmo for some development work. Is there anything I can do about this or am I stuck paying the tax even though they agreed to pay it? (I have not yet filled out the 1099 for them)
I want a job where I can work remote and do something involving excel or coding. I have a Bachelor’s in Accounting. Does anyone have any suggestions or willing to refer me at their company?
How do you deal with partners who always call, ask if you have a minute (which you don't) and proceed into a deep assignment that legit takes 40 min to explain, @ end you have no clue what task is...

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
Currently doing ID (car accidents, premises, general negligence). Although I am doing higher exposure cases, running entire litigation dockets on my own, and doing some more complex work, I just feel that I am stuck making crap money the rest of my life. Just now entering my second year. I only get considered at other ID firms. I need to leave but no success. I have things to pay and I just feel that I am stuck making no money forever.

Hi! I am close to getting an offer at tiktok for a BPM (sales) role. Wondering if there is negotiation room to ask for either 1) an upfront guarantee - ie to offset the commission I would be leaving on the table at current job for Q2 or 2) a sign-on bonus ($5k seems fair). Any current or former tiktokers (or other sellers with experience in negotiating either/or) please advise! I really appreciate any guidance here. TikTok

I received a job offer with a probationary period that requires targets are met to obtain the full salary I requested. While this is not a pure sales role, biz dev and revenue are part of the responsibility of managing a 30pp department in this role.
One target requires I increase team revenue by 20% in 6 months. They haven't shared current revenue info yet, but 20% on ANY number seems really high, especially in the first 6 months.
What are some reasonable revenue increase goals you've had?
I was recently let go from my job of 7 years with an organic egg company. We were purchased by private equity and I was the first to be let go by the new SVP of Sales. I worked my way up from Sales Admin to Trade Marketing Manager in a 5 year span. It’s been over a month and I don’t have any solid leads for a new role. I’m looking for a role in Category Management, Trade Management or just Sales in general. I am very competent and have valid credentials. Any help is appreciated.

I was told that I was the chosen candidate for a new role that I applied for which will be promotion, I just recently received my offer and was surprised and decided to start negotiating. My boss immediately said that this is offer, either take it or lose it and no negotiating, and was only given a day to decide whether I want it or not, so he repost the position, and was also told that I was going about it the wrong way for trying to negotiate, Is this wrong of me to negotiate?

Hi there, I got an offer for an early stage cyber security saas startup in Canada and they offered me 130k base and 10-15% commissions which they estimated at 160-240k additional a year. They only have 1 sales person at the moment and I would be 2nd and they are hiring for 3 more. I’ve always been on a 50:50 model and never done the % of revenue. Average deal size is 40k. I got 12 yoe in enterprise tech sales. No stock options upfront but potentially after the first 3 months. Good deal?

I am starting a new position as an SDR at LinkedIn and thus signing a new contract. It’s an entry-level position but I have already worked in the company for some time. Would you recommend negotiating the offer or SDR entry-level positions are usually not negotiable?

Hi All, looking for some ideas to create a 30 60 90 for a 2nd round interview. The role is a Channel Management/ Development role for a single partner that is a communications provider. The partner has business in SMB, Enterprise, and Pub Sector.
I'm trying to find something unique/ forward thinking that is different from what is typically said. Hopefully some ideas how to engage with the partner leadership to bring value

SMBs sales cycle is definitely the shortest because they're usually looking for the fastest time-to-customer value benefits.
Sales cycle length is fairly well correlated to ACV. See, e.g., https://blog.close.com/5-tips-for-selling-saas/
It's not a hard and fast rule but if you see a sales cycle being too long for a low ACV product, it's obviously not going to be sustainable. If you're finding the opposite... Then holler at me and let's make some money together 😂
Very informative, thanks for sharing!
