College and sometimes even high school isn’t for everyone, and that’s why today’s blog is about the top 10 highest-paying jobs you can do without a college degree or even a high school diploma.

Self-Employment Jobs

The best part is I’ll be breaking them down into two categories. The first will be the top five jobs you can do if you want to be self-employed. Being self-employed means you’ll be able to earn a comfortable living working from home or traveling around the world while being your own boss. It’s truly all up to how you want your lifestyle to be.

Now, I also note that working for yourself isn’t for everyone, and that’s totally fine. But that’s also why I’ve dedicated the other five jobs to people who actually enjoy working a nine-to-five or just want to have a more scheduled lifestyle.

Regardless of the path that you choose, though, these top 10 jobs are definitely something you should consider if you plan on not pursuing college or even high school.
