Dave Says on Business Commission Only is Rare

Sorry Dave you are wrong about the checks, post-dated checks are considered a loan and they are not equivalent to a check that is supposed to be the same as cash. As such there is no crime here, my advice is to not take post-dated checks.

Dear Dave,

I own a small business, and I pay my people on straight commission. We’ve started growing a bit, and I’m having trouble finding good, new reps who want to work under this kind of compensation structure. Does your team work on commission, and if so, how do you do it?

Dear Gary,

I love commission plans that rely heavily on incentives. I just plain love the idea of commissions. I mean, I’d put my receptionist on straight commission if I could figure out how to make it work.

But honestly, there’s hardly anyone on my team that works...
