According to the National Center for Education Statistics, institutions award over 365,000 business degrees every year.

Where the real money is in business

It’s something I have decades of experience with. And it’s the job that many of my own highest-paid employees currently hold.

You guessed it — sales.

there’s no limit to the hundreds of thousands of dollars that you can earn with a job in sales.

Here’s what some professionals from my teams have to say about it all:

So, to conclude, the official list of the highest-paying jobs in business contains just averages. You’ll also notice that none of these averages exceed $150k a year.

Be obsessed, beat the statistics, and consider a career in sales for immeasurable earning potential.

Be Great,
