Not everyone wants to go to college.
The mere idea of spending four or more years trudging between university lecture halls, writing papers and taking exams is more than some people can bear — not to mention the cost of tuition, and the burden of student-loan debt.
While it’s often thought that those who opt out of college limit their employability, career options and earning potential, that’s not necessarily the case.
“There are plenty of great jobs that pay well for people who don’t have degrees. At the end of the day, she college degrees don’t make or break careers. When people ask managers what was special about their best hires, the answers tend to be things like “she’s a team player” or “he shows initiative.”
“It’s never about whether they went to college, or where.
What jobs are we talking about? We looked at data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Glassdoor, Indeed.com and LinkedIn, and then cross-checked the data with hiring managers to make sure they had actual vacancies.
So here are the hottest jobs that don’t require a degree.
There are more than 3 million apps available in the Google Play store and more than 2.2 million in Apple’s app store, never mind the millions on Facebook. Each one has been coded by someone. Someone who doesn’t necessarily have a college degree or even a reputation for being a geek.
Everyone can, and should, learn to code in 15 weeks or less. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for an app developer is $97,789.
Administrative services managers
It pays to excel in minding other people’s business — their calendars, agendas, mail, meetings, priorities — and orchestrating details so that everything runs smoothly. It’s not the kind of thing you study in college, but something that you learn to do on the job..
You might start as an executive assistant or in customer services, and then become an office manager.
The people who get to the next rung of that ladder are especially in high demand, reports Indeed.com.
Administrative services managers can earn as much as $110,000 in big cities..
Sure, to work in banking you have to be good at math, but what you learned in high school may be enough to start you off in the lending industry.
And while the starting pay might be under $20 an hour, Glassdoor data says loan officers can earn more than $139,000.
Certified computer professionals
It’s an absolute myth that you have to have a degree in computer science to earn a healthy living working in the tech industry.
Not only that, but having the right certification will give you a leg up on people who only have bachelor’s degrees because passing the exam is proof that you have the skills.
Anyone can sign up and take a course, although six to 12 months of actual lab experience is recommended. Workers who have the basic CompTIA+ certification, for example, earn around $50,000. Add a second certification, and your paycheck goes up to $80,000. Pre-certification courses are available nationwide and online. The average salary in the industry is $108,900.
Good business-to-business salespeople are hard to find. Those who consistently meet their quotas are rare. So while some companies list a degree as a prerequisite for employment, they will sometimes forgo the requirement for recruits who are perennially successful and can deliver.
“If a hiring manager is in a hurry to fill a role and needs to choose between a person who can eat the competition for lunch and a person who has a degree, they’ll choose the closer.
Sales managers in big cities earn an average of $89,238, reports Indeed.com, with a few superstars making more than $200,000.

If we take responsibility for our problems, then we take responsibility for
solving those problems.
2. Happy people DON’T react to the present moment.
If we catch ourselves fearing that a negative recent event is devastating or
is? permanent, we should ask ourselves, what can we learn from this? Or
how can we become wiser and /or stronger from this?
3. Happy people DON’T use negative language. If we catch ourselves
using negative language toward ourselves and others, we should mentally
re-write the story we’re telling. An example would be if we think we look
awful each time we notice wrinkles, we should learn to respect the wrinkles
as signs of wisdom and experience.
4. Happy people DON’T feel trapped. When we feel trapped by circumstances
we should ask ourselves how we can manage ourselves better.
5. Happy people DON’T focus on a single passion or relationship. They
usually have multiple hobbies, belong to multiple clubs or organizations ,and
socialize with a broad range of different friends and acquaintances.
6. Happy people DON’T dwell on past failures. When an old failure comes
to mind, we should think about how we re-bounded from it, when we learned from
it or what we could learn from it.
7. Happy people DON'T spend more time than necessary around unhappy people.
We should avoid unhappy people. When we must spend time among them, we should
it as a learning experience . Then we should try to discover what makes these people so
miserable so we can manage and identify similar tendencies in ourselves.
8. Happy people DON’T gossip. If they are told something in confidence, they keep
it secret. If they have something critical to say about a person, they either say it directly
to the person or they don’t say it all. Instead, if we feel the urge to talk about someone
behind their back, we should ask ourselves, How can we use this time to improve our
9. Happy people DON’T procrastinate. They usually get unpleasant tasks over with
so they can move on to happier things. They understand that putting off an unpleasant
task doesn’t make it any more unpleasant.

Organic carpet cleaning is gaining popularity as many people seek safer, more natural alternatives to chemical products. Traditional cleaning products for carpeting are full of harsh chemicals, which are not only bad for the environment, but also bad for the health. People suffering from allergies, sensitivities, and breathing problems are particularly susceptible to the harmful effects of toxic cleaners. Organic carpet cleaning offers a safe, eco-friendly solution.
Organic Ingredients Provide a Safe Alternative
The types of ingredients that are found in organic cleaning products can include aloe, citrus peel, natural minerals, vegetable fibers, cider vinegar, botanical extracts, soybeans, and more. The combination of safe, all-natural ingredients offer an effective way to remove stains, dust mites, and dirt from carpeting through a simple steam cleaning process.
The process of cleaning carpets with natural enzymes is actually simpler and more effective than cleaning with traditional harsh chemical formulations. The ingredients are gentle enough for regular use, while still providing the same level of cleansing effectiveness. Carpets dry quickly and remain in great condition, with no strong chemical odors left lingering.
Best for the Environment
For eco-conscious homeowners, organic carpet cleaning is the ideal alternative to typical chemical cleaners. The safe ingredients do not pose a threat to the environment. Since they are natural, there are no harsh processes required in order to create an effective cleaning product. The right combination of ingredients will clean the fibers of a carpet just as well, or even better, than traditional chemical cleaning solutions. For those seeking a healthy and environmentally friendly option, organic carpet cleaning is the answer.
Safer and Healthier for Humans and Pets
Homes with animals and small children often have carpets that get more wear and tear over the years. Regular cleanings will help carpeting to maintain a fresh appearance and smell. Organic ingredients in cleaning solutions make it much safer to clean carpets often, and allow pets and children to play on and around them at any time. Since the ingredients of organic cleaners are all natural, they are also ideal for people suffering from allergies and asthma.
Unfortunately, most carpets are made from synthetic fibers which have been treated with harsh chemicals. Such chemicals are not directly harmful to the health on a daily basis, but over time, carpeting can produce emissions which are hazardous. Cleaning carpets with even more toxic solutions only makes the situation worse. By using organic cleansers, the amount and toxicity of the emissions can be lessened.
The Benefits of Professional Organic Carpet Cleaning
Professional organic carpet cleaning is the safest way to maintain carpeting and remove dust and dirt build up. Creating a healthier environment inside of the home is an easy way to keep children, pets, and family members safe. It offers an affordable alternative to toxic cleansers and cleaning processes that take longer to dry. Carpets and the padding below will not get soaked through with harsh chemicals, so most carpets dry fully within a few short hours.
Many people today are recommending professional organic carpet cleaning because it is an environmentally friendly, safe, and effective option. Remove dirt, dust, and tough stains easily without the use of toxic chemical ingredients. Customer satisfaction with organic carpet cleaning is guaranteed. The results are so good that customers will not want or need to return to traditional cleaning products in the future.
