## Honestly, I’d want the opportunity to make the most money I can without the expectation of an hourly target. I’d want it to be a percentage of what the company is looking to grow. I am a sales guy who has employed a strategy of working smarter not harder with proven results. Things get tricky when a company sets the hours and pay because of what they think is the only way to do it. The company is capping their expectations and perhaps only want to grow ‘x amount’. Note that my target goal is for the President to know who I am because he is writing the largest check and wondering who the hell this guy is. I want his/ her hand to hurt when that check is being written.

Let me add some perspective, I hope my math is legit lol

Since we are talking work hours, here is how it breaks down: Pre tax

200k = \$119.05 per hr. for 35 worked hours
200k = \$104.05 per hr for 40 hrs

275k = \$127.32 per hr for 45 worked hours
275k= \$143.23 per hr for 40 worked hours

400k = \$151.51 per hr for 55 worked hours
400k = \$208.33 per hr for 40 worked hours

For 400k you are losing about \$60 per hr, annually by working so much. A \$60 per hour salary, equals about \$115k for a 40 hr work week. Most people would die for that salary.

With all that being said, if I were working 35 hr a week and making 200k for the next 25 years, that would be my selection.

If I were stacking my chips so I could invest and retire in 5 years. 400k at 55 hours would be the fastest track.

## Either the 200K or 275K. Leaning \$200K. 55+ hours is brutal. I’ve been there before and won’t go back, it’s not worth the money because you have no free time or energy to spend it.

2. I currently often work 50+ hours and am barley earning 90k. A promotion is coming so I am holding out for that and just keeping my head down and doing what needs to be done to secure that roll. It’ll be less hours and potential to be around 120k.

I’d love to!

125+125=250

## Absolutely #3, final answerI'm (as any sales professional should be) already >55 hours

VP1: Your first part is your opinion. Not right or wrong... It’s the second part of your answer that throws me for a loop. We definitely should NOT all be working 55 hours

3 until I was 30 then 2

I went from like 60+ h per week to like 40ish and to be honest I’m board, if you don’t have a fam sometimes grinding it out is kinda fun. I hate dead time , I feel like a prisoner biting hours

1 or 2, but this qstn kind of opened my eyes. I don’t work more than 45 hrs.. and probably that’s why I don’t make 400k

Would you mind sharing what you make now?

Time is always the most valuable commodity.
That can be one’s age or one’s time working.

For me, I am older, much more secure, and plenty of revenue streams.

Option 1

Option 2 or 3
Honestly 55 hours could easily be 11 hour shifts M-F and if it’s a position that I love, comes natural, has amazing benefits then it could possibly be a good fit for me.

Option 1 or 2….work to live not live to work…

3 which I make more than now working 25 hours

Option 1 or 2

120k and j probably work 55+ hours a week

I work 1st option , but I barely make 80k 😭

Option 3

I would put in the hours and work hard , it makes me appreciate the days off .

#1

275k hands down
