college degree is preferred, It is one of
the few jobs where you can earn a six-figure salary without even having a
high school diploma. Many companies will even accept you without
experience providing you can show enthusiasm, energy and professionalism

provide you with a small salary until you start generating enough sales
to support yourself on a commission-only basis.When I checked this site,
