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.

My answer to your question will begin with a question. Do you want to be rich or wealthy? But that's the same thing, well no its most certainly is not. Becoming rich means in most cases, getting to the higher echelons of a company and receiving a large salary. Unfortunately the higher somebody climbs up the company... More

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
