Birth of a Salesman!

I tried something new today. I spent half the day in the office catching up on bookwork, and the rest of the day was spent cold-calling on different offices. My plan was just to drop off catering menus and introduce myself. It turns out that there aren't a lot of restaurants that offer breakfast catering, so I took several orders at each location that I stopped at. When I got home, I counted up the number of orders that I received today-- 77! They totaled up to $20,738.36! Not too shabby for a few hours of work! I was so impressed with myself that after I spent several hours writting up the orders, I layed them all out on the floor and took a picture. How cool! 77 orders in one day-- I'm going to start doing this every week!

Ok, You need a staff! You can handle the orders and have a staff that gets up with the roosters and prepares and delivers the food.

20 thousand plus in one day? That out weighs the overhead of a staff wouldn't you say? AND I AM TALKING STAFF! not one guy...STAFF! Go for it! But if that cuts into your comission, then I can see why you won't. At least, if this is any kind of a company you will get bumped up to an executive position over the new, multi staffed catering department... one can hope.

Ask Brian to give up total ownership of the entire catering gig??? I don't think so!!! He LOVES getting up at 1 a.m. to fix the food, deliver it and hoping not to collapse before he does it again the next day!!!
