What are some high paying jobs without a college degree for a 21 y/o?
I certainly can not afford college and I do not want to be in debt. What are some fields that do not require a college degree? I want to earn a lot of money, but it is very difficult for me to go to college. I do not want to sit and waste my time, when I can be earning money now. I am interested in Business, finance, and entertainment: tv and film. Thanks :)

Computer programming. You can get a top salary without even graduating from high school. No degree required. BUT you would have to train yourself online.
