Although that said, there is definitely potential for making up to 40k per month. You have to remember, these are datacenter sales people. They're selling racks, and equipment, and installation service, and monitoring etc.

Take a standard 42U rack, lets say you put in 30 machines at $2k each (purchased), that's $60k + bandwidth + support. So on the first month, it could easily hit 100K in onboarding costs!

Then you have someone like my old company where we were $50k/month in server rental fees. If the agent is at 20% commission, then they're getting $10k/month just on ME, and I wasn't their only sale!
Yeah, that was supposed to be per year - my mistake. First one of 2017
