In what is internally referred to as "The Business" (ie. any of the multitude of direct sales offices that sprung out of DS-Max, Cydcor, Granton, Smartcircle, Credico etc.), this is a term referring to hitting ones sales goal of selling enough to earn $100 personal profit for the day. This can equate to a certain number of sales dependent upon the campaign. For example, if one earns $50 commission per sale and then "ringing the bell" entails closing two sales.

This is not only an idiomatic expression as it refers to the literal ringing of a bell after returning to the office from a day in the field. All reps who earned the minimum $100 profit ring a large bell signifying their results and are congratulated by their fellow sales reps in a raucous, high-energy ceremony.

Rep 1: How did you do today?

Rep 2: I did alright, I closed $129 in profit!

Rep 1: Hell yeah, go on ring the bell man!

*High fives ensue*

The Bell Jar is the only novel ever written by poet Sylvia Plath. Plath is able to capture perfectly what it is like to be stuck in a pit of depression, and how it hard it is to dig yourself out, if you even can.
The book was semi-autobiographical of Plath's life. To protect herself and the charachters based on real people, she first published the book under the name Victoria Lucas. It wasn't published under her real name until 1971, 9 years after Plath's suicide in 1963.
(Spoilers ahead.)The book follows Esther Greenwood (The main charachter who Plath based herself on) who although is a striving young writer, finds herself spiraling downward into depression and eventually a suicide attempt. She eventually is put into a mental institution. Esther is given electroshock therapy, which, along with therapy helps to her to regain her sanity and cure her depression, which she describes in a most beautifully sad way, as being "trapped under a bell jar, stewing in her own sour air" (Spoilers end.)

The book's portrayal of coping with and overcoming depression has made it a classic that many women can relate to.

From "The Bell Jar"
(Esther is about to leave the asylum, and her doctor has told her to think of her past as 'a bad dream')

-"A bad dream.
To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream.
A bad dream.
I remembered everything."-
