Hurray for Jason!!

I have been getting anxious about selling this summer because living on commission terrifies me.  I'm no good at sticking to a budget anyway, so living on an income that isn't stable could be a total disaster.  Jason has been studying videos, manuals, and books like crazy when he can and attending APX meetings when he can, but with two kids, a wife, school, and a full time job, he's had plenty of excuses not to get out as often as he should.  He's gone out with Mark (my cousin, Paityn's husband/his manager) but he always feels uncomfortable and unprepared on his own and decides to shadow Mark and keep learning.

Anyway, I had a little panic attack yesterday chewed him out because I was worried that this might be a sign of what was too come this summer (just me stressing out and taking it out on him, as usual).  So I told him he'd better go out on his own this Saturday (today) and just get some gall-darn practice in so that I would feel better.

And to make a long story short, he went out and made his first sale within two hours today!!  I'm so proud of him!!  Needless to say, I do feel much better about going out and it's boosted his confidence as well.  So three cheers for my sweet husband!  And thanks for putting up with my nagging!  Keep it up!

For sure good luck this summer. Don't stress too much, APX is quite the good company, my bro is going out again for a second summer with them, but he is an installer and is going to Florida, so you won't see him but he did well last summer and the company treated him very nicely.

Good luck with that. I can understand why you would feel that way. yay for a first sell!! I hope the summer goes well for you guys! Oh, and nagging is a talent that most of us wives have gotten down! We are all pretty good at doing it!
