  • wow–great call guys!!–Love the zero com talk! Not a commercial!!

  • Zero com will have reprecussions we cant forsee. I think for both good and bad, but certainly the business will change.

  • There are now two business models in the same space one with commission one without. The commission business model is unsustainable. Clients will not get the nuance. They will either pay commission or not. Those that do pay it will work with salesmen, those who dont will pay for advice like they do for attorneys and cpas. This dichotomy will relegate commission salespeople to the lower rungs of the biz. It has to. Wake up!

  • Not sure my firm will give me an extra 20% rev share to build my practice/help me compete. Sheeshz!
