Why are you not an insurance salesman ? (or rather, a financial planner etc) My question is for those who're doing pretty well selling/marketing their casual games/products. Why are you not selling insurance or anything else, if you can sell/market your products/games successfully. Aren't these skills applicable in the insurance industry as well ? The reason I am asking this is that from what I know, insurance and financial related services can be a big money business. Also, people I know who were ex-cg artists or game programmers, are going into the 'sales' line, with insurance and financial services being one particular industry. If you can sell, why do you choose selling your games, instead of selling other products/services that I mentioned, where it's possible to get more money than selling your games? People I know totally gave up on their 'passion' such as coding games, doing 3DCG and going fully into these insurance/financial related sales, with the primary motivation, the money.
