What type of Insurance is the best to sell?

I am thinking of getting a job selling insurance, can anyone tell me what type of insurance has the best potential of making great money plus making it pretty quick. I cannot afford to go several months without a check. I get emails from all of the insurance companies, Farmers, State Farm, Allstate, etc.... With any job there is that learning curve, I just cannot go without pay, I have kids and a home to maintain.

If you need a bi-weekly paycheck insurance is NOT the way to go. It is very time consuming, working weekends nights etc. You have to get really lucky or spend a lot of time getting leads and following each one. This can be exhausting and financially expensive.

All insurance sales jobs take time to make money. Many companies will offer you a small base salary to start plus commissions.
