What's a lucrative sales career for someone wanting to work independently from home? Preferably something that doesn't require extensive experience in a particular field or technology.

I'm currently doing a job that is paid commission only. It is a sales job for a large telco company, basically selling mobile phone contracts for business. I have no leads list, pretty much have to scour the phone book and internet, and collect business cards. It's been several weeks and I haven't made anything decent yet (zero sales).
I don't know if it's just me, or if mobile phone sales is simply an area that is saturated. People on the phone tell me that they get too many calls from telco companies.
I suppose an ideal role, will offer high commissions and something easier to sell (i'm sure all sales people desire this!!!).
