It comes as no surprise to me (and probably a lot of other people) that a company director earns more money than most. You don't necessarily have to own your own business to direct a company, but business owners do earn lots (many go on to be multi-millionaires).

I wouldn't think it's easy to become the director of a company, and it's probably one of those things where "it's who you know rather than what you know", which can sometimes be a shame if you don't get in with the right crowd.

Of course, there's always the option of starting your own business. If you've got a great deal of motivation and some money to start you off, there's no reason why you can't make it big with a good idea!

I agree with Lizzie.  Company Director is NOT the easiest position to get to, unless you can open up your own business and earn enough to pay yourself such high salaries.
