Get an $80,000 a Year Job WITHOUT Going to College

Going to college isn’t for everyone.

“All through my life it was, ‘if you don’t go to college you’re going to end up on the streets,’ ” Morgan said. “Everybody’s so gung-ho about going to college.”

Yet there seems to be a disconnected between the message we send children and the reality of our professional world. There is a wide range of skilled work that is high paying, challenging and DOES NOT REQUIRE a college degree. Everything from traditional skilled labor like plumbers, electricians and welders to Google’s IT Support Professional Certificate on Coursera. The average salary for all of these positions is between $60k-$80k.

To be perfectly honest, many of my most successful friends never completed a four year degree. Instead, they opted to go into coding, networking and various other IT professional positions and worked there way up into high level positions.

There is a wild range of opportunity for so many different types of people that we should really present all opportunities and career paths to our children.
