Colleges and Universities were mainly founded to training people in careers so they could find a good job. But with the exception of certain areas like Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), many four year degrees do not teach marketable skills. Many schools have lost the focus on why they were created in the first place. This book is for those people who want to make a good living but also want to avoid huge college debts and don’t want to attend a four year school for additional reasons. These people are not dumb—they may be much smarter than average because they realize the mess that Colleges and Universities have created. Included are essays on how to plan what you want to do, online sources of learning, potential entrepreneurial business, and many type of high paying jobs you can get. The good news is there are many great careers out there which do not need a four year degree to succeed in. “If you want to be a success, get a bachelor’s degree.” That’s the message trumpeted by many people in our culture. It’s said, written, and implied so much that we often take it for gospel. We assume, without even really thinking about it, that if you want to be financially, emotionally, and socially successful, a four-year degree is required. At the very least, you need a two-year associate’s degree. But there are many things wrong with this concept. First of all, it hints that “success” is tied to income, implying that the more money you make, the happier you will be. Of course, anyone can tell you that money does not lead to happiness; once your basic financial needs are met, there is very little advantage, from a happiness standpoint, to earning a lot of money.
