However, there is demand for good programmers, and for that reason
alone it is well worth your while to learn Lisp. (Certainly, it was
worth mine.)

My recommendation to anyone who is serious about programming is to get
hold of SICP[1] and a book on Common Lisp[2] and get started. SICP
should pay off immediately, but Common Lisp requires you to get used
to it before you start getting any benefits from it.

Oh, and you can earn a living writing Common Lisp.
