Finance.
Inside out, and upside down,
mortgaging, stocks, investing,
macro economics,
sales and marketing,
make friends with good lawyers.

Any "business" you want to get in to, you will have to "sell" your service and your product.

Fewer actual professionals doing sales and a lot of incompetent retirees.

It collapsed. I survived on REO's

More Government intrusion and AMC's solidifying their hold on the process
New "Alternative" products putting lenders at risk.
