We live in a world where most people go to college after high school primarily because that’s what is expected of us. We go to school, get good grades, try for a scholarship, then head off to college. While in college, we experience a variety of emotions. Excitement and joy for some, anxiety for others and a few that experience both. Some graduate with high marks. Then, they try to find a career in the field that they studied. Some graduate with average or low marks and sometimes find it difficult to find a job in their chosen profession. Yet others don’t graduate at all. Stressful, right?

What if I told you that you don’t have to go to college? It’s okay, you can say it, I’m crazy. The problem is that everyone expects you to go to college and no one is taught that it’s okay if you don’t and that you aren’t a failure. Some people fit right into college; others never do.  I’m not saying you shouldn’t go to college. However, I do encourage viewing the different colleges and even taking a few courses to see if it’s for you. Don’t lie to yourself though. If your heart’s not in it, you are likely to struggle and end up feeling like a failure. The expense of a college degree can run into the thousands, so be sure BEFORE you begin.

I do have exciting news for the young adult trying to decide what path to take for their perfect career.  You see, the backbone of any country is the Blue Collar Man. These are hard-working individuals who have learned a trade, excelled at it and then use these skills to help build the foundations of what we have today. The inventor of the wheel wasn’t a college graduate. Learning a craft or trade skill is just as important as a college diploma. I wouldn’t want someone who hadn’t been to college to perform surgery on me, but I wouldn’t necessarily want a college graduate with no field experience to build my house either.

Welders, construction workers, farmers, those working in manufacturing: these are all necessary fields that do not require a college education. An engineer can come up with something beautiful on a blueprint, but without people to build that design, his or her engineering degree is useless. A doctor can treat the sick, but without food produced by farmers or truckers who bring the needed supplies to the hospital.

People need to understand that college is not everyone. You need to be willing to work hard and get your hands dirty.  Many trade skills even offer apprenticeships.

Working with your hands is not only okay, but it’s also rewarding. Some very successful people either didn’t go to college or never graduated. Never judge your success on whether you are a college graduate and don’t let others judge you if you choose another path for your career. A Trade School training course can get you ready to make money while others are racking up thousands in student loans.

Here is a list of the top 30 highest paying Trade School jobs and Vocational School careers.


Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
