I sell cars. At very least I make $2000 a month, that's if don't sell anything at all. I can make up to $14k in one month but thats very uncommon. Since the income is rather unreliable, what the best way to make sure I'll have $40k by July. I'm looking for away to make extra money because the car business is a little unpredictable. So what should I do?
Need additional info, OP:
How long -in months- have you been selling cars?
What is the realistic "average" of your monthly gross income over 12 or 24 months?
What is your gross monthly "cost of living" average --by month-- for last 12 or 24 months?
I have similar situation as you and have survived income volatility with a little formula.
Pic related. My first car.
I'm in commission sales too, anon.
My best advice is to look around you. Who at your workplace is making the most money? What are they doing that you're not? You're intelligent, you can figure it out. Become the person that makes that 40k. Whether that means a new suit, haircut, fake tan, and a morning routine.. whatever. Just do it. Figure out what the more successful people at your job are doing, and copy them.
Really just find a way to increase the sheer numbers of cars you sell and your gross will probably follow suit. My manager is really good at holding gross and so on my first sale of the year yesterdsy i got 400 dollars my cut. I know thats not insane but if you hit the 8 car average like that you are already easily on track to your goal. Also my dealership hits 600 dollar minimum comission once we have 40 cars out so I may have an advantage over you but still
