No talent or personality so no athletes or celebs.
No entrepreneurs or owners.
No managing of others so CEOs, ect are out.

Software engineer specialized in something?
Attorney? Who has the highest billing rate? I've heard patent attorneys do but then I've heard they don't.
Gun repair?

My own field, accounting, cost accountants seem to do pretty well, but I'm pretty sure we are at the bottom when it comes to software and attorneys.

Also I've heard the future of earning big money is to have two specific fields. Accounting and IT. Bio chem and neuro science. So you can be super specialized.

The best skill is the skill that can’t be farmed out over seas.  To me that’s plumbing and electrical.

ETA: I myself was well into six figures as a firefighter/paramedic.  Obviously this is more a geographical thing than a skills thing.  But the right certs and credentials open a lot of doors.

The highest “you get X credential and you are going to get Y income”


Specialist physician.  Private practice Ortho and Neuro that do spine probably average the most but there are so many variables. That any of the lucrative specialties are the clear answer when the question is “on average and long term”.  800-1.2 is a normal expectation for private practice, in the right locations for the lucrative specialties.  You can make more, but it is getting outside the normal distribution.  Nothing else comes close.

The richest lawyers (doing lawyer stuff) are far FAR richer than the richest doctors doing doctor stuff….but the average doc is a lot better off than the average lawyer.


You can become a billionaire as a geologist or an English major….but in terms of “get this credential, and you can expect to make this amount no matter what” specialist physician.

I know that Elevator Technicians cost a fortune.  I don't know what they get paid but we get billed about $450 per hour per man depending on which company - Kone, Schindler, Otis.  Some of the smaller independent companies are a bit cheaper but still $300+ per hour.  I think their skill set is a cross between a plumber and electrician.

Not really.

It is a high paid specialty but not among the top ones.

I am not sure why there is a prevailing belief that They are among the highest paid. I hear it all the time  

Part of the problem is the public (Google results)data on physician salaries is fucking horrible and just shit data.

And yes, they can make 500k.

So are you saying physicians make way more?

I only personally know one surgeon...and he lives in a $1.6 Million house in the Midwest. Which is nice but not what I'd consider "on par" with someone who makes more than $500k/yr.

They are not, and they are not entertainers.

The average CEO makes far more than the average entertainer, but still less than some other careers.


It’s a tough question because what is a “learned skill”.   You can teach a guy to machine and he he goes on to found a multi billion dollar machine company.

But in terms of “you get X credential and on average, and long term, you will make Y income” the answer is, by far, specialist physician.

There is no credential that guarantees you become an NFL star, CEO or top grossing actor.

Not disagreeing, but if you're going to exclude professional athletes, you'd might as well exclude neurosurgeons also.  Your average person has about as much chance of making a professional sports roster as becoming one.

I disagree, because becoming. A neurosurgeon is literally a clear, understood path of checking off boxes. If you follow the path to completion, you will be a neurosurgeon. It is a series of credentials.

There is no clear path to becoming a top athlete. There is no credential that assures it.

BTW, there are more athletes in highly paid professional sports than Neurosurgeons.

lemme tell you what it takes (or took) to become a neurosurgeon.  Get admitted to a top ten engineering program and the graduate at the top of your electrical engineering class.  Turn down absurd offers. Go to very good medical school.  Graduate at top of class.  Go to 6-year insanely demanding residency.  The kind of thing that causes people to have breakdowns. Do a fellowship.  be in mid 30s before you start to practice.  

The path is clear, but it literally takes a genius that is willing to put in 15 years or more of training, part of which is exceptionally intense.  That is a rare combination.
