9 Well-Paying Jobs That Don't Require A Degree


Richard Branson, Rachael Ray, Mark Zuckerberg and Lady Gaga all have two things in common: 1) They are incredibly successful; 2) They are college dropouts. While it's a common belief that in order to be successful and make a lot of money you need to have a college degree, those four prove that's not necessarily true.

Sure, college-educated workers may have access to more opportunities and, on average, make more money than workers without degrees, but college isn't for everyone. Some people just don't want to take that direction in life, while others may have financial or personal reasons for foregoing higher education. And just because someone doesn't have a college diploma hanging on his or her wall doesn't mean he or she can't find a fulfilling job with a steady income.
