    Go ahead, I just wanna help everyone lol
    Hypothetical scenario:

    I get a commission only job at a sandwich company and I try to sell more sandwiches but people say that they want to go to Subway because it's more unique. So I craft my own exclusive sauces and use those to sell the sandwiches. I get more sales (great!) but the company prides itself on being locally sourced, which one of the ingredients surely isn't (but the customers know and don't care about it).

    What is the best way forward for that situation? :holmes:

    (I had considered to take that job and do the sauces thing to attract more customers, but rejected it for a job with more guaranteed pay) :moon:

    Well, just wondering how much trouble I could've got in if I took a certain job.

    I say for your situation, screw the sandwich company and open you own shop, directly competing with that one and subways if you have to , Id pay for exclusive sauces besides, how cool would it be to have your own sandwhich shop???

    tbf if the customers and company dont know about your secret sauce and its sourcing, Id just continue using it.....
