How to Make Sales Income FEEL Like a Predictable Paycheck
Feast or famine. That is the income roller coaster ride most with commission income experience. This course is designed to establish a sense of stability in a world of risk.
While the roller coaster ride is definitely an adrenaline rush that many crave, that same rush ushers in a sense of dread for others. Those with a family feel this dread not so much for themselves - they are the risk takers and live for the rush, but for their children and partners who still need to have their needs met
Sales. People are drawn and simultaneously repelled by the idea of a career here.
An unlimited potential income and a freedom to set your schedule is the glitter, the sizzle, the pizzaz of a career in sales. Within minutes of imagining that desirable achievement comes a gut-wrenching fear of the possibility of failure, rejection, and a worsening of your financial situation. Commission only sales can be scary especially to those who have had jobs with a pay date they can circle on a calendar.
I encourage you to read 2 Kings 4:1-7, or better yet; buy my book based on this Bible passage. This story ends with this classic statement by the Prophet Elisha to a single mom (widow).
2 Kings 4:7 "She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left."
The fact is, selling can create an escape from a financial bind, enough to move the seller to become debt-free and create a lifestyle for themselves and their family. I love that it is a woman, a single mom - who is the salesperson here.
Please, do not be afraid of the solution that sales can offer to your finances. There are many ways to use sales as a 'side hustle' until you are more confident or connected to move it to a more full-time activity.

Creating a Budget on Commission Income
It’s true - I am credentialled in the finance space, achieved the highest rank in one of my companies, and followed by more than 27K fans; but what most people do not know is - there was a time when I would peak out my window expecting to see the repo man, and grateful for help from my parents to feed my kids.
I am Trudy Beerman. I provide strategies that help the small business owner fund their expansion by building business credit, improve their personal credit to a 720+ score, so they become debt free, outrageously profitable, and joyfully generous.
I know the catch 22 we experience and have made strides to build the bridge we all so urgently need. We tend to make more money than the average W2 employee, but we write everything off in taxes and now our tax records limit our ability to say - qualify for a home loan.
We max our personal credit to build the business, then we limit that build because our credit is destroyed.
THERE IS ANOTHER WAY!
I bring certified credentials, prayer, love, my testimony, my ever increasing maturity in Christ, and my experiences to the consulting table.
Check out my signature CASHercise(TM) program and get out of the handouts line, and lead in impacting lives by being in a position to offer a hand UP! Don’t just take my word on this.
Trudy is an author and the VP of Profitable Stewardship, Inc., an educational consulting firm where Christian income earners grow, manage, protect and generously give from the resources God put under their control. If this is you, LET’S CONNECT!
There are too many Christians in line for a handout and not enough in a position to offer a hand UP. We want to be – and lead the faithful to the realm of more, of abundance, of prosperity; the place where joyful, generous giving is easy and impactful.
We are convinced, prosperity is not an entitlement, but it is within reach of us all. This is not a prosperity gospel site, nor do we ascribe to a path of poverty. We believe in effectively managing the time, talent, temple (body) and temple God has given us, to enjoy a harvest of treasure, from which we give back to God what is His, and generously to those in need.
“Well done, good and faithful servant. “His master replied. “You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.” Matthew 25:23.
I am an Ordained Minister, the Biblical Stewardship Auditor who surgically dissects the Christian income earner’s life, challenges their status quo and partners with God to help reinforce bold courage, Biblical operating standards, and a laser-focus on having a profitable return to whatever God puts under your control.
