In anticipation of my soon-to-be-empty-nest, I have been testing the waters for my next act. Such a wonderful market out there for a job-seeker. Not. But I have always had a clean, half full glass, so I am hopeful. I have been offered a 100% commission-based sales position, and while I have never considered my to be a salesperson, I believe we are all basically involved in sales of some sort...either selling ourselves or our ideas.
I want to get back into the world of the gainfully employed after spending the last 18 years volunteering. The catch? I don't want to be a sales person. The possibility of high earning potential had me initially interested, but my heart isn't in it. While the income is important, I want to be really happy in my choice. I wonder how many people love what they do...and how many just go to work to keep the bills paid.
What would you do?
