Was it right or wrong?
I’ve been bopping back and forth with a potential job. At first the money lured me into considering it, but I ultimately turned it down.
It was selling accidental death insurance. Personally I think that it is a very good company. There was also hospital stay payments like Afflec offers. Over all 4 sales a week would gave making more money then I have ever made.
On the other side though, I would have to get an insurance license, which would be around $400 and since I don’t have one, a decent lap top, so another $500ish. The job is 100% commission, no draw, so no sale, no money.
I decided that I am too old with too many problems to do something like this. Also, unemployment is weird and if I took this job it would screw it all up and then I would be SOL. There was a very scared little boy in me afraid of change that is too afraid to take this much of a risk too.
So I passed on it, for what I really thought and considered good reasons. Now I am sitting here feeling like a failure once again.
If it makes you feel any better, I would without a doubt passed on it too. The expense you were going to have to come up with for one. The uncertainty being another. IMO you did the right thing.
@happyathome Thank you
You made a good decision passing on this.
100% commission is A LOT of pressure…I don’t blame you.
Yeah. Like I said, a younger man’s game. Maybe if I didn’t have kids or any real attachments.
I did allow myself to fantasize being able to do this job anywhere, the work at home aspect. It’s always the right thing at the wrong time…
