From the moment we are set off into this world we are told that going to college, getting a degree, and going to a certain career path is considered being successful. What if I told you college is a waste of time? What if I told you, there is another form of education that will lead you towards great money and the ability to set your own schedule?
It’s possible. And it’s actually pretty common.
It’s a blue collar job.
“Whoa whoa whoa Aaron. That’s not success. Those blue collar jobs are lower middle class Americans. They’re dumb people who couldn’t make it in college!”
You are so wrong. They are the hardest workers out there and they can make great money and make a great living. Let me tell you how and why.
You see a blue collar job can easily be made into your own business. Let’s take these college student examples that started this business just to make a few extra bucks: They started the business College Hunks Hauling Junk. Now, they are millionaires from franchising their business out and working hard. All from just hauling junk.
Another example: A man I know started his own business doing home inspections during the 2008 financial crisis. He worked hard at customer service and marketing which brought him more business. Eight years later, he owns a business with six employees worth almost a million.
In the United States you can learn a trade, a skill, or just do what you are good at and turn it into a business. You don’t need a fancy degree. Heck, become a plumber. Start your own business. Hire employees and you are a successful person. Even if you don’t have a high school degree you are successful.
Last example of this blog…
A young adult plays competitive video games for a living and uploads videos of him playing to YouTube. He owns a 2017 Audi R8 V10 and has never worked a day in his life. He doesn’t even have a high school degree.
I am not saying this so you think high school and college are stupid. You should automatically get a high school degree, but you need to HIGHLY consider college. I am saying this because college is not for everyone, and it’s a waste of money if you don’t know where you’re going.
The government, teachers, school administrators, and people in general should stop hyping up that college is everything. College is not everything anymore. What is everything is your life. So do what you want to do to get where you need to be.
Find your successfulness. Learn a trade.
Peace out Eagle Fam!
