That depends on the type of work you are looking for. Commission sales has always been the highest paid profession around. Real estate sales offers tremendous fiduciary potential for the right people (the ones that are willing to do what it takes or what most of the others are not willing to do). It offers unserpassed potential but never any guarantees.
