Real World Careers: Why College is Not the Only Path to Becoming Rich delves into the myth that you can only make money if you had enough money to graduate from college beforehand. That conundrum unravels a bit as you read success stories of those who have gained financial independence by sheer determination and hard work.
Sample careers range from pilots to house inspectors to dog walkers (yes, dog walkers). The pros and cons of self-education and the decision between working for yourself or someone else are discussed.
This is a great book for someone having a mid-life crisis, someone who has been laid off or (gulp) fired, or someone who is just dissatisfied with their current employment but cannot afford to go back to school. The message of this reader-friendly book is that you donít have to be held back by what you didnít do in the past - as long as you are willing to work hard in the future.
