I was a mortgage loan officer for years but got out of it when all the rules changed. I loved it. If you truely care about people and are willing to work very hard you will probably do fine. Lead Generation, Sales and customer service experience would be a plus. Just know that it's usually only commission so it's a really good idea to have a nice savings before you break into it full time. If you are interested in getting into business financing I could help you with that. In my opinion it's a lot easier in this market. We provide ton's of training live and web based. Let me know and I would be happy to send you more information.
