I'm currently going for a part time job in the field to supplement some income, because I work in sales on commission full time, and it's tough right now. I'm thinking it could turn out to be a new career for me, since my sales job is a non stop grind with no rewards. Is there much money in the field, and what type of degree would you need to make a good living from it? I don't currently have a degree. Thanks.
