Is moving from SaaS sales to selling services after selling SaaS for 7 years a good move? Why or why not?

As someone who sells services, I have seen a lot of SaaS sellers fail when switching over, because it is more about selling yourself as an expert than selling the benefits of your product. Also, depending on what you are currently selling, I don't think the pay tends to be significantly higher.

However, it will help you round out your skill set as a seller and open you up to new leadership positions if that is part of your plan.

Team is considering a baby photo guess who game. While most of the team has a similar ethnic background, there are only a few of us that ‘stand out’. I have always hated this activity as a minority in the group. Obviously that is me, no need to pretend to struggle or call out how easy it is to guess. If I don’t participate, I may look like a spoil sport, but I don’t feel like playing along with this nonsense. How do I voice my discomfort to the organizers in a productive way?

In comms structure, what do you think of this?

Brand new client - 25% of new-client fees for 6 months. Plus a 3% trail commission after the client has been with us for 12 months
Referred client - (where you have helped in the process) - 10% of new client fees for 6 months
Upsold client - (where you have helped in the upselling) - 25% of upsold fees for 6 months

Never had a trail comms structure before…

We’re < 1 week from the end of Q3. Our goal was 35, but as of 2 weeks ago they told us it has changed. They did not tell us how it changed, just that it had. They still have not given us our commission structure. We don’t know how we’re being paid this quarter.
