Question Passion or Pennys?

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and need some serious advice/opinions!

Im currently 18 years old and working as a medical receptionist straight out of school, my passion is travel and until recently was ready to apply for flight center academy. I have heard being a travel agent is a dying business and that if i want to pursue this as a career its a bad idea as there wont be many left by the time i am about 40, i also am concerned about the money they make as i also hear it is not much i know that alot of it is made up by commission but i want to know how much that is or how much a good travel agent makes, as i said its my passion and is 100% what i want to do but i need some help !!!

thanks!!

if alot of it (money) is made up by commission, some how one may never be so certain of the sum.There will always be bad and good days, I suggest that you first know how much money you can be paid, so good that its your passion ! Good luck ems101!
