I am interested in sales, it is what I do best. I can build trusting relationships and can (probably) sell just about anything. I also have a passion for boats.
Are you a yacht broker? I want to know what you made last year. What are the job prospects? I notice that the large majority of brokers are mid 50's to 60's. Are all of these brokers about to retire, therefore leaving the market open for new brokers?
What is the income of a yacht broker, versus a real estate broker?

We don't fight but we don't have the same goals. I want to go cruising (buy a boat and sail to the Caribbean) she wants to sit still and visit with family. We only have one child, actually it is her son but I have helped raise him for about 20 years. We have been married for 14 years and did cruise for 2 years.
I used to feel dependent on her for things like health insurance (we had it from her old employer) and extra income but she hasn't worked much in the last 6 months. Part of the income thing is that I am a yacht broker and am paid strictly on commission. If I don't sell a boat I earn nothing and although it isn't likely one salesman here just went six months without selling anything.
She just came back home after spending six weeks visiting her family and while she was gone I did some hard thinking. My feelings for her have diminished as she has no goals and can't even decide what she wants to be when she grows up (she is 50.) I know where I want my life to go and I don't think I can get there with her. The biggest questions are how to breakup and divorce her without hurting her terribly.
Keep in mind that I do earn a good living and have earned significantly more than her for our entire marriage. I was an engineer and I provided most of the income and the insurance for her and her son. After cruising I am the one that has made almost all of the money and I have been paying for the insurance for the last two years! I have helped support her son and grandson. I do care about her but I don't want to be sitting here five years from now saying why didn't I go.
I know that cruising by myself may not be the best but there are women out there that want to go and I think I can find one. I only need one.
I'm thinking about buying a 40-45 foot boat for $700,000-$1,000,000 and thinking about keeping it for 20 years.
How long will it take for it to break down? Do you have to replace the engine & etc.?
Is buying a yacht more like buying a house or a car? because a car breaks down within 7-10 years while house stays strong for decades.
Also, is it wise buying a used boat?
If so, about how many years used or mileage used?
Those with greater earning power can already afford the cost of living, so they generally look for returns on investment instead of spending on goods (because they generally own the goods already).
It is NOT my understanding that these returns typically come from investing in small businesses. Instead, they come from investing with the help of professional investment people (stock brokers, etc).
These folks are always looking for higher return rates. Higher return rates come from companies that lower their labor costs. Companies lower their labor costs by downsizing and off-shoring their jobs. (i.e. resulting in less jobs)"
Now it's all just speculating and not saying ALL the wealthy invest their extra cash in stock brokers. Who knows, maybe they'll buy that 5th yacht instead.
And besides this, our government needs to make up the deficit. This was typically done by raising taxes on payroll, social security, and gasoline. So the wealthy will pay these taxes anyway, but it is also hurting lower income families. The ones who need the money to buy the goods they weren't able to afford before.
But this is how I understand our economy and would like to hear counter explanations
@Dan - If you would of read my question, you would of seen that I'm open and asked for counter opinions. Its not the way it is because you say so. If you have such a strong understanding of how this all works, then I assume you cracked the puzzle and just rolling in dough. If not, then why not implement what you know and become a millionaire?
Consider this. Someone owns a business and hires people to work for him. Because the capitalist must profit, he does not pay them the value of their labour. The people who produce stuff have less purchasing power than the person(s) who owns the means of production. Those who own the means of production have more purchasing power and can buy more goods and services. They may buy things that arent necessary, but they would "like to have". These might include golden toilets or yachts or 50 inch plasma screen TVs. The people who produce these things could have been producing more valuable things, but because there are profits to be made by producing these things, production in industries like these may be necessary. Meanwhile, areas in which there is high demand (of course not in a capitalist sense- demand in capitalist economics means people who demand something AND have the means to buy it), but low purchasing power are not provided with appropriate resources and capital and labour. These goods may be necessary, but so long as you lack purchasing power, resources are not allocated there, thus we use our scare resources to meet the wants of the richest people and do not meet the needs of the poorest, even though they are the majority.
A principle in economics should be to fulfill the needs of the majority, otherwise we cannot say resources are allocated efficiently. If perhaps we could think of more sustainable agricultural methods, food production could be higher, as well as use land, labour, and capital towards universal human needs, not the smallest percentage of people's wants.
For a cruise ship application they're asking Why do you want to work on a cruise ship (can you improve my answer?)
I am constantly looking for new experiences and opportunities in life. Previously, having lived in Dubai I was constantly surrounded by a multi cultural environment and I took pride in learning from a variety of people with different backgrounds. As a sociable person, I enjoy and feel I work my best within a close knit environment. I believe that working on a cruise ship would combine my interests as well as giving me the chance to explore more of the world.
I am 18 years old and I have been practicing spread betting in demo accounts for months and I'm quite good at it. I only have a couple of grand to start though, but I think I would need more money to stand a chance at it, say £10-15k. The reason I think having this much would be best is because the demo has this amount as a starting balance. How could I raise finance for it? Could I work, or trade spot-forex for a year as I'm quite good at that to make the moeny I need? Please help/advise. Thanks.
