im a system administrator and have some ideas and small amount of money to spare. Despite i am a tech guy, i actually have a problems learning programming(trying a few times with deplhi then with python). I understanding the basics like OOP, logic constructions and data handling, frameworks, can write a simple shell and python scripts etc. but just can't apply it to real world and honestly doesnt enjoy it. As a kid i am always been more interested in liberal arts so may be i just choose a wrong career.
So right now i just give up with programming and looking for skills i need to successfully manage a remote team. Obviously i should learn project management, HR skills, sales, marketing. Recently i am figured out i dont enjoy administration anymore(5 yrs of experience) and more interested in management. I like technology field and won't leave it so i just trying to get a job as sales in IT company to a get a hands-on experience in selling IT stuff. Should i abandon technical skills(as we know they expire very fast) and move completely to learning management? What should i learn? Is it wise to leave a tech job and become a sales for example?
Any recommendation appreciated. I am from Russia, so only internet considered as valuable source for learning.
