Found this on the new salesforce.com blog called Quotable. There are a few great stats. Not sure I agree with all sentiment but if anyone would like to comment I would love a debate!
"A career in sales can be equal parts exhilarating, rewarding, stressful, and lonely. No one understands this better than salespeople themselves. That’s why Quotable surveyed 280 reps, managers, and leaders — across states and industries — to find out about their average workday, from how much coffee they drink, to their prospecting tricks and career aspirations."
