    So what kind of commission (percentage and actual dollars) can you and your team expect per month per policy?

    So to make $100k/yr, I just need to send quotes to 1000 people/month? I'm in the wrong line of work.

    I think that's for your "team" to make $100k/yr. You would get to divide that amongst the 14 of you.

    It's a no-lose proposition.

    Does this hold linearly? I'll just have my team of 14 make 1.4M calls a month, and we'll all be rich.

    No doubt. I have a team of 850 and we average about 650 million calls per month. Last month was so good I was almost (ALMOST!) able to move out of my parents' basement.

    Hold on. I'm almost done taking my 15 minute break weeping in a stall in the bathroom.

    Jonathon Pryce's character was a closeted-homosexual being seduced by Al Pacino. Seriously, re-watch it and it's clear as day.

    I haven't watched Glengarry Glen Ross since it first came out. I really need to revisit it.
