Possibly when Zharova said "meetings" he/she meant talking to clients.

Or, you can trust them and pay them regularly and only complain if a long time goes by with not enough sales. There are advantages to trusting them -- they may learn to be disciplined and self-directed, and they may feel good about being trusted, and this can motivate them to work hard. There are also advantages to keeping track of them.
If you have a good team all you really care about is are they meeting the quota of sales set for them within the legal and ethical constraints you set. If someone can do that with 5 minutes of work a day, fine if it takes someone 6 days a week also fine, it's their choice. All you need to track is results.
The number of meetings with clients per day will depend on the particular type of product and methods of sales. You could experiment to see what works best.
A pep talk at the beginning of the day could be good. You could hand out drums and things, have some fun, and keep it short.
Inability is an abstract thing involving comparison with alternate universes; it cannot be experienced.
