Is college just not right for you or did you run out of money before you could finish? Well, that doesn't mean you have to spend the rest of your life flipping burgers. There are plenty of jobs out there that don't require a degree and pay a decent amount of money. You may need to take a few short classes or certifications or just start your way at the bottom and work your way up, but it can be done!

If you are a people person, real estate might be the job for you. You will have to take a few classes to get your certification, but it's nothing compared to a whole college degree and depending on how well you do, you can be making some real money pretty quickly. Most real estate agents make about $40,000 a year, which isn't too bad for no college degree and you can make even more with experience.
