Grant love the show man. You talk about companies needing to grow or foster sales people. I am finding that the company I work for wants sales people but wants them to be already "fostered" ,they don't want to put in the time or effort yet expect salesman to go above and beyond....Any suggestions on how I can change the culture and thinking of this company, or is it best to abandon ship and find a company that will do the things that need to be done to grow their sales staff.

@j_richards the NFL trains great talent how to be better -- no such thing as just finding talent and then not fostering it... to be better....

Grant, I bought your closes on CD way back in 99-00. I'll always remember one specifically. 

"Sir, it's not the price. It's your taste."

Fast forward 10 years and I find you on Youtube exactly when I need guidance like this in my life. 


I just got into real estate and closed an all cash deal for $450000 my first month. That put $8900 cash in my pocket. That's the most I have ever made on one deal and I'm never looking back thanks to WIT nation. 


Thanks again Grant !!

@grantcardone great show!  Commish will never die.  It cannot die, it's a natural law!  Silly bureaucrats.

@drtimoconnor I agree...but it can get hammered = people will move to different spaces...to be compensated

Yes. If commish gets hammered, people will move. Not everyone wants to work for Apple just because it pays the bills & it's cool. Real salespeople will find where to go to get compensated for their talents.

Commission will never be dead - for 2 reasons there will always be government officials aka kickbacks baby - and the more you do, grind and hustle the more you separate yourself from the masses and create a demand for your talent  people will always pay for that!

Once you stopped comissions , then sales will be down , and hence people's motivation will decrease.... well people need to be rewarded on a job well done or simply on a deal being closed !

The sales world is already short on motivated people...you take away the commission, and you are going to lose lots of good people who aren't ok with that. Commission drives sales!

@Jason Clemons  Commissions will not go away - they will shift to other industries...
