I’m officially moved into my new apartment here but I was going to be doing my apartment tour but I’m still waiting on my couch to get here I decided to do a different video today we’re gonna be talking about the best jobs you can get with little to no schooling and first of all because it is a Monday I want to announce the winner of the weekly membership to stock radar that is my stock analysis membership site and this week’s winner is Landon McDowell and if you guys want to enter that to remember every single Monday I give away a lifetime membership to stock radar and all the details on how to enter are in the description below but the idea for this video came from something very simple and that was the video I did recently talking about why I quit my $70,000 job after learning about passive income and I was very surprised that a lot of people were commenting and asking me how did I make seventy thousand dollars a year at 22 years old and to me this seems like a no-brainer because I knew how to do this and it really wasn’t that hard but I think a lot of people don’t realize how much money you can actually make depending on what field you get into now I will say this if you watch that video you know that I quit that job because I hated it and I hated my life and so I don’t do that anymore so don’t think that you can just make a lot of money and it’s gonna make you happy that’s a complete fallacy and don’t fall into that trap of chasing the money rather than chasing your passion but that being said if you have no clue what you want to do and you just want to make some money to save up some money to start a business or you’re just looking to have a good salary or a good wage these are the five areas I would recommend going into so my number one recommendation to you is to get involved with a trade now this could be something like being an electrician this could be carpentry this could be using your hands and doing plumbing this could be being a pipe fitter no matter what it is though these trade jobs pay very well especially if you are in a union and the other beauty with this is that you can start off as an apprentice and have absolutely zero dollars of educational costs so typically these apprentices are five years I know I was looking at the IBEW or International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers I decided to get a two year degree in electrical construction but before I did that I was considering entering the electrical you and if you do that you start off in about $14 an hour and you don’t have any college at all that you’re paying for you just go to work and you oftentimes are taking classes at night but they’re basically paying you to learn this trade and five years down the road you could have a wage of $40 an hour or more so I know the IBEW the electrical union I was looking at topped out at about $40 per hour and that’s a salary of just over 83,000 dollars per year with absolutely zero College now we’ll take you about five years to get there but the beauty of it is you’re making money in each of those years as an apprentice and again like I said you start off in about fourteen dollars per hour and once you’re making that eighty thousand dollars a year you have absolutely zero dollars in student loans and you can also transfer to different unions if you’re in an actual electrical union who worked anywhere in the country if you wanted to now the second route is actually what I did and this is my educational background so when I was in high school I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life I knew I enjoyed teaching people but I had a bunch of people tell me that you can’t be a teacher you’re not going to make any money and unfortunately I believed these people and I made the decision to go off and get a degree in electrical construction and this was solely based on the fact that I took an electronics class in high school and I thought it was kind of interesting so anyways I went to Community College I got a degree in electrical construction and maintenance and that degree cost me about twelve thousand dollars now I did have my grandfather helped me out with that so I didn’t have to pay for that college but I had about a fifteen thousand dollar limit as far as my college went anything beyond that will be coming out of my pocket so I spent about twelve thousand dollars on that degree it took me two years to get that associate’s degree and then a week before I graduated I actually got a job working for the local power utility now I started off in the collections department and so what I would do is I would go door-to-door I would knock on peoples door and I would shut off their power if they wouldn’t pay their bill and it was a terrible job it was one of the worst summers of my entire life but anyways it led to me getting a full-time position with that company but my starting out wage there my hourly rate as a collector was twenty-seven dollars and 20 cents per hour and that ends up being a salary of about 56,000 dollars per year and do keep in mind that working for a utility you do get a the amount of overtime so I was a collector for about eight months and then in the fall that is when I got my permanent job there as a planner so what I would do is I would do the preliminary design work for the overhead power line construction a great job if you’re into math and engineering but it just wasn’t for me but that job paid me 3162 an hour and that job topped out at $50 an hour and it took you five years to get there so I was making about sixty-five thousand dollars per year at that job starting out and within five years it was a guaranteed payable over 100 thousand dollars if I stuck with that progression but as I’m sure you guys know that’s not how that story panned out I decided to start a YouTube channel and go full-time with that but nonetheless utility workers make a lot of money especially if you’re in a union so the second route I would recommend going is looking at some kind of utility construction work number three on the list here is when you probably have never thought of before but it’s air traffic control these are very high stress jobs but they pay a lot of money most people working in air traffic control make over a hundred twenty thousand dollars per year and as far as the educational of schooling goes for this there are actually specific schools out there for air traffic control so it’s not like you’re going out there getting a formal degree of some kind you go to a specific training school where you learn air traffic control and they have ones all over the country now is this a line of work I would want to do absolutely not I mean you are looking at the planes in the air the planes that are landing making sure that there are no possible threats to our safety so it’s a very high-stress job but this is a very high paying job that requires very little schooling and not a lot of upfront investment as far as education goes so number four on my list here is radiation therapy or being a radiation therapist essentially helping people cancer patients or other patients with radiation treatments now this is a job that you typically see people with a bachelor’s degree doing very well with but you can actually get into this field with an associate’s degree and expect to make somewhere around 80 thousand dollars per year as a radiation therapist and there are all kinds of different schools in the country here that teach you radiation therapy and specific programs for that I know the college I went to the Community College had Grahame for both dental hygienists and radiation technology and radiation technicians and those were very affordable programs out of Community College so we’re talking about potentially investing $15,000 maybe 20,000 at most in your education and being able to come out making $80,000 a year that’s not a bad investment right there and then fifth and finally we have to include being a registered nurse this is a fantastic field to be getting into anything related to health care just because of the aging population more people are living longer and so we need more people working in health care and registered nurses typically make about $68,000 there’s all kinds of associate’s degree programs all over the country where you can get into an RN program and you can also build upon that and excel and make more money in that field and nurses also get a ton of overtime and so that’s also a great field to get into whether or not you’re a man or a woman I know traditionally it was a lot of women in the nursing field but now it’s pretty much gender-neutral and there wouldn’t be any issues with being a man in that field making that kind of money so just to wrap that up those would be my basic recommendations here is look into the trades look into health care those are two very hot areas to get into that are going to have steady demand as far as your work and you also have potential to work overtime and work more hours in those jobs but again the number one thing I have to stress here is don’t do something unless you think you’re going to enjoy it don’t just do it for the money now what I did is I worked my job and I knew I didn’t like it and so as a result I lived as frugally as possible I save as much money as possible that way I could do something different down the road and so I saved up over twenty thousand dollars working at that job for two years and then I made the decision to take that leap of faith and pursue entrepreneurship and I’m very happy that I did that but I would just say make sure that before you make a major decision and get educational schooling and spend money on some kind of degree make sure you’re going to at least enjoy that line of work or have a plan down the road but if you have no clue what you want to do and you don’t want to be burdened with a ton of student debt in student loans this is what I would recommend doing anyways guys that’s gonna wrap up this video thank you so much for watching keep in mind if you do want to enter that we give away for stock radar
