Wow. This goes beyond wild. I can think of no greater demonstration of why I simply can't take literally anything that Pink Truth says. In fact, it is exactly this kind of post that makes me wonder if they are not all being facetious about the whole thing. I seriously have a hard time believing that anyone could actually say (or, in this case, write) these things with a straight face. I know I couldn't.
"Fact 1: The majority of Sales Directors make very little money.
...To check this fact, you can do a couple of things. One real eye opener is to ask the Directors you admire to provide their 1099s for the last few years...
...Another easy way to check this is to take a look at the Applause magazine..."
Suppose, if you will, that someone reading your article took your advice and asked the "Directors you admire" for their 1099s. Let's further suppose that they have several Directors they admire. Let's further suppose that all the directors that this anonymous reader queries turn out to make less money than they seemed to be claiming. Moreover, let's FURTHER suppose they make (as you say) "very little money" (Isn't this just as subjective as "executive income?).
How does this make "The majority of Sales Directors make very little money" a fact?
The FACT of the matter is that it does not. I suppose that I should not even ask, "how do you expect to be taken seriously when you say things like this?" because it is obvious that you don't.
Sorry to have wasted your time.
