I'm currently planning my career path, and I'm wondering if project manager is a good career path or not. Is there a potential of making a decent salary with this profession?

YES!!

A recent survey showed a 16% differential in certified project managers compared to non-certified peers.  Another study showed project management one of the top 5 growth career paths in the next few years. Salaries of $80,000 - $120,000 are not uncommon for in-house positions, and quite a bit more for independent professionals.

It's logical that it would be a good career path, when you realize project management is basically about getting good stuff done faster than normal.

Caveat: It can be a pressure-cooker career that's not for everybody.  You have to be able to handle high stress, ambiguity, and political risk.  If you can, a project management career is hard to beat!
