Expanded Sales Territory

I'm in sales and I am a commissioned employee. I found out today that my territory has been expanded by one third. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. It gives me an opportunity to increase my income by 20-30% but it also means more work.

I just need to remember to keep my work/life balance. I make it a point to leave work by 5:15 or 5:30 every day.

I just need Baby G to sleep through the night now. I am tired...


  1. Mr PoP has been through the same situation - it can definitely be a blessing, but also a challenge to maintain the balance you want. With him, he only had the expanded territory for a limited time, so he spent as much of his free time as possible mining it until he lost it to a new hire. Can't imagine how hectic it would have been if we had an infant around...

  2. You're right to focus on maintaining a balance in life/work. I can imagine you don't have any time to fit in a NAP so really really hope Baby G starts sleeping through the night soon!

  3. Congrats on the "promotion"! You know you're doing well when you're entrusted with even more responsibility! I'm glad you are keeping things in the right perspective because sometimes employers are happy to use you up and stretch you too thin. Here's hoping baby G gets the hang of things soon!
