    From snowy Michigan on October 1:
    Please share with me any ideas about structuring a compensation plan for a snow/ice services salesman for mid-size properties [strip malls, restaurants]. Formerly the owner of landscape/plow service biz made most sales himself.
    Dilemma: some clients may want to pay "by the push", so how to pay salesman.

    how big as a business do you get before you start hiring salesmen? Ive always wondered what point you reach and why. iowa only gets 1/3 of the snow most you guys get so I doubt ill ever have to worry.
