How to Make More Money  ($20K to $102K) as a Sales Person

If you’re about to retire and you’re looking for ways to supplement your retirement income, or if you’re looking for something to do other than playing golf or walking around the mall, you might want to think about becoming a sales person.  If that’s the case I think it’s important that you research the different types of positions in sales and the salaries that go with them.

For example, the average salary for a Retail Sales Associate is $22,000 while the average salary for a Solar Sales Rep is $102,000.  That’s a big difference.  I had no idea you could make so much money as a Solar Sales Rep.  I’m not even sure what a Solar Sales Rep does but I imagine it has something to do with products that harness energy from the sun.

Sales is not for everyone.  Some people just can’t stand rejection.  If you back away from making a sale becuase you think the purchaser is going to say no then you’ve given that person power over you.  Here’s some great advice that will help you regain your power not only in sales but in almost every aspect of your life;

Here’s some info on the training requirements to become a sales person;

So it’s obvious that if you want to make more money as a salesperson get the training you need to become a Solar Sales Rep or better yet start your own Solar Energy business. I was kind of joking but when you think about it this is a good idea.

All you need is a business website to market your services and a solar panel supplier and someone who’s qualified to do the installation. Of course you’ll need to look into all the legal stuff that’s required. It really isn’t all that difficult — a couple of my friends and I started a successful cleaning business a few years ago this way. Or if that’s too much and you only need $22,000 to make ends meet then fill out a few retail sales associate applications the next time you’re at the mall.
