Business Builder....

Question for all you Entrepreneurs. I am a one man operation and sometimes when I get big places like churches and big book stores I have my buetiful wife help me. She is my best partner in this wolrd.

Question: I was thinking of hiring a salesperson of some type to hit the streets for me as my Carpet Cleaning Business. I can not afford to pay that person any money as an employee or base pay. Do you or anybody you now have someone do the ground work from door to door and give them only commission and if you do how much commission is a righteous amount? I do not want knock down my prices because of the economy, actually I was needing to raise my prices. I am already to low as to begin with.


Thanx :~}
