2 Alternatives to Going to College

Are you an individual who simply didn't want to attend college? Perhaps you tried it, and it just wasn't for you. For whatever reason, you may be looking for a way to have a good career that will help you to take care of a family now or in the future. If that is the case, here are some ideas for you to consider that might help you decide on a career that you can enjoy.

Perhaps You Are A Good Candidate For Entrepreneurship - If you go out on your own to work for yourself, you'll be in good company. Some individuals who didn't graduate from college but who have been very financially successful are the famous radio host Rush Limbaugh; Sheldon Adelson, who got his first business license when he was only twelve years old; Kanye West, who had a passion for designing clothes; and Bill Gates, a person known all around the globe for being a lot more than a computer geek. If you have a passion for something and you have a lot of patience and perseverance, you might also be a candidate for entrepreneurship. For example, if you love working on beautiful cars, consider opening a detail shop that caters to people who own expensive foreign sports cars. Are you an excellent drawer who has an eye for fashion? Perhaps you'll be another Sheldon Adelson.

Perhaps You Would Enjoy A Life That Includes Being On The Go - You might have a keen brain and you may love to read biographies, novels and other stimulating books. You might even enjoy writing. But, if you hate sitting behind a desk or even being tied to one location for your working day, you might be a great candidate for a driving career. If this kind of profession appeals to you, of course you'll still need to get substantial training. The good part, though, is that you'll be doing something that keeps you on the go. Do you enjoy driving? Do you enjoy traveling? Are you in good physical health? Those are all things to consider before you sign up for driver training. In driver school you'll have many hours of classroom training that is given by licensed and experienced men and women who are trained to teach you. After you have passed a number of required tests, your training will continue as you drive actual rigs. Finally, you'll drive with an instructor until you accomplish everything you need to drive solo.

As you try to decide what you want to do in the future, consider talking to as many people as you can to find out how they like their own jobs and to find out how they've been able to succeed in their field.
