I was offered something that I think would be a great solution for me. I don't want to get into a huge story about my financial situation but if there is one thing I know, I know that Sales is the one occupation that will always be relevant and important. I know that Sales is the highest profiting position and a lot of times includes unlimited income. Now the thing is I never really did Sales the way I've been offer to do it. I know deep down inside we're all Salesman, but I'm more of an musician and artistic individual, but my music is not exactly profiting but music to me is more than just a hobby.

I do have an entrepreneurial and the commissions that are entailed in this job are OUTSTANDING and I am someone very disciplined that can go ahead and make things happen. I'm already an online marketer and learned everything myself and developed a freelance path out of it, but the truth is online marketing is saturated and its not really paying the bills neither.

So i guess my question is... because of the fact that this job will not only grant me financial freedom eventually, but it will always allow me more freedom and free from the likes of a 9-5 job.

I just want to know if you guys think that a Sales career is good for someone that has big goals in music too. I'm not a touring musician I'm more of a producer/composer that is only putting music up for licensing. So I'm not looking to be a rockstar just more on the film composer side of things.

Also is anyone else here a musician and salesman?
