whats a good paying career, that doesnt require much education?
im 18, a senior, and still have no idea what i want to do in life. im a tad lazy, but thats because i lack motivation. However i acually have a good work ethic when i feel like doing something,money is involved, or its something i want to do. Anyways, what are good jobs that only require high school diploma. i would go to college, but im worried about the money for it, and i dont know what i want to do. Basically im asking whats a high paying job that doesnt suck too much and doesnt require any/much college. If i do attend college, id like to have a stable job at first to get cash for it anyways. -thanks for your time.

I would strongly suggest you taking a look at the video Douglas B is talking about. It's incredible and so simple. You'd never dream of it. I know a lot of people involved in this type of work and it explains why they're able to do all the things that they do and are happy. Take a look at it and get back with him... More
