I found it interesting that according to this great thesis by Stanley and Danko, a full 5% of all the Millionaires created their wealth in sales. The study futher states that those millionaires made their money in sales, became very good at selling, earned an excellent living and saved and invested a substantial part of their income. As a result, became millionaires. The last part is where most people go wrong. They spend all of their income; they spend first and never set up an investment plan. Read and apply the principles in The Millionaire Next Door. Consider making selling your profession. Make a committment to become excellent and save/invest a substantial portion of your income. There is no level of income that you can't outspend.
