    Hello, I am new to this forum but figured I would just jump in and get my feet wet with a question for you all out there. I am going to distribute 2000 fliers in late February for design build work. I am thinking about hiring on 2 sales people to handle the leads. However, I am debating whether or not to make part of their job description to require them to not only design, bid, and close the sale. But also to be project supervisor and manage the project through completion. Including collection of the payments from the customers. I figure that there will be a sweet commission of 10% added to the bid of each job, plus a design fee that I will split 50/50 with sales. All these sales positions will be 1099'd, and they will receive $500 per month for vehichle allotment. Anybody following a plan like this or have experience with it?
