First and foremost, Welcome to the forum! This post is not to 'flame' you whatsoever so I hope you don't take it that way. I just want to voice my opinion on this issue and possibly help people in the process.
A lot of people feel this way. However, how safe is your 'safe' job? No matter what field you are in, without someone selling the product or service your company provides, you are unemployed. This works for ALL jobs. In business for yourself? Great! Now instead of your job hanging in someone else's hands, it's now in yours! You need to sell your product/service. I don't know about you but I feel much more comfortable being in control of my money.
I never did understand people saying that they NEED a 'promised' paycheck. How 'promised' is it? If the sales force doesn't deliver, somebody is without a job!
I should give up on lawn care and become a motivational speaker with my experience. lol
Really!!!! Not to make you feel uncomfortable. This is just a statement that I have heard TONS of times already.
