The games customers and principals play

How not to be the loser.  Principal games include slow pay, no pay, commission reductions, splits, house accounts and non-exclusive territories.  Customer games include those who want to deal direct, some who manufacture elsewhere, as well as CEMs and kitters who source components.  Plus, do your principals think there is such thing as too much money for a rep to make?  Learn how reps survive and prosper in the face of all this adversity.  Moderated by Harrison Frank.
