Best Sales Jobs Available Now and Forever

It has always been the case that, for middle class folks, the best and quickest way to become comfortable financially is to be a great salesman for an excellent product or service. That hasn't changed.

Lee Iaccoca, Ross Perot, and Henry Ford became rich and famous because they recognized that to be a salesman is the same thing as to be a leader.

Most people who are out of work are out of work because they are afraid to rely on themselves in terms of leading others to products and services they actually desperately need.

In this time of economic hardship, millions are staying home because they are shy, when there are perfectly good jobs available in sales, prestigious jobs with excellent incomes going unfilled because people refuse to internalize the principle that learning to sell is just another way of learning to lead.

Our committee of 50 persons (15 of them salespersons) has put together ten jobs that are available immediately to any qualified applicant, with examples of how to apply.

The next time you look at your check book, or your spouse complains about the level of family earnings or you have to borrow, just look at this list, and apply to one of them.

They ALL can be done part time until they start paying their way, and NONE of them cost much to get started.

All you need is courage, a good command of the English language, common sense, and a WILLINGNESS to learn to lead. (Even the English language requirement can be negotiated, if English is your second language.)

In every case, there are folks already working at these jobs making in excess of $200,000 per year, EVERY year.

The line, "I don't like to act like a salesmen." is the same as saying, "I don't like to act like a leader."

These jobs are open to the public, some even if you haven't graduated from the College or University you wish to represent.

One of the fabulous 50 who put together this list is an Ambassador and she informs us that the College is growing by leaps. License not required. Integrity and an appreciation for education is essential, however. Many other colleges struggling to keep enrollments high also looking for great people.

The day when vehicle sales were unprofessional are over. Today, whether we are talking about power boats, airplanes or automobiles, there are thousands of jobs available nationally for someone who can sell these beautiful vehicles.

For more than a century, life and health insurance sales positions have started many a business career. Not only is life and health insurance one of the biggest sales areas in the world, working with business owners to insure their livelihoods is also extremely rewarding.

Insurance sales was a very stressful job for me.. only works (like most sales jobs) if you believe in your product

Some persons, of course, do not like the "environment" which often surrounds the desks of Pre-need sales personnel. However, with the Internet, more and more positions can be structured so that your only appearance at the cemetery is when you have a prospective client.
