The “sales compensation equation”
From my experience, and as I learned from my MBA, part of the value of a job – are you learning and growing your career? So, the equation becomes: Total Compensation = Base + Commission + Equity + LEARNING. Never underestimate the value of LEARNING. When you can align yourself with a sales mentor who can teach you new things, it’s hard to put a value on that. PRICELESS. That said, the same Professor said that you will learn 80% of what you will ever learn within 18-24 months when working with a sales leader.
