THE ‘SWEETEST’ ROLE (OTE: $160,000 – $165,000)


In 1912 … an American pharmacist named, Wilbur Scoville developed the Scoville scale to measure the level of capsaicin found in hot peppers. Essentially … capsaicin is the primary chemical responsible for the spicy heat of peppers.

You’d think a similar scale would exist to measure ‘sweetness’ – but there isn’t!
Wanna know why?
Well … to keep it short … the Scoville scale measures a specific item, capsaicin – period.

When it comes to sweetness … there are far too many sweeteners in the world.
Creating a scale would only allow for the measurement of a single type of sweetener in a single type of food.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing, really.

That said … if Match and Fable could measure sales roles in terms of sweetness … this one would spike your levels!
