How can I make a lot of money without a college degree?

I only have a high school diploma. I received that in 2000 and while I did take a couple of years of Accounting, I never finished college. I sit here making money from the comfort of my home doing my dream “job”.

I make a living writing for myself and others every single day, and while it has taken me since 2006 to get to a consistent annual income that makes it worth it for a family of five, I’m making enough now.

You too can do what you want for a job without a college degree. A college degree may be necessary for many jobs, but it’s not a requirement for all jobs.

Always Review Job Descriptions Fully

Always look through the job description to see what’s required before applying. Make sure your skills and educational background match the minimal requirements.

Then you’ll want to create a cover letter and resume. I always have an updated resume on file on my work PC. It’s something I was trained to have from a young age.

You can hire someone to write a fabulous cover letter and resume for you, I’m sure some people on Fiverr may do that. I have done it only for friends and family in the past, although I enjoy writing cover letters and resumes.
