    Go back to school to find a better job in the future.
    Ask yourself if you want to work in the warehouse for the rest of your life ?
    It is a physical work. Once you get older, you don't want to do that job any more.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Either get some knowledge through schooling or find a trade you enjoy.

    When in doubt, go back to school until you're sure. If when you're in school you find a way to make $$$ you try that, but in the meantime you invest in your future.

    1) Go to school and see what the corporate ladder has in store for you, or
    2) Work in the warehouse (or other "job") and at the same time study/implement IM strategies until you are making enough to quit the job, or
    3) Do nothing

    If I was in your shoes, I'd go with number 2.

    Good luck.

    Okay, I agree with most here saying go back to school. But please don't go back to school without a plan. Even if it takes you a year, think of something you could see yourself doing the REST of your life. Don't waste money on a year of school that won't matter if you drop out or dislike the major you chose.

    Is there anything you feel strongly about or that interests you?

    For most people(except Bill Gates),an undisputed premise of our life is that a college degree is necessary---and perhaps it's even a sufficient---precondition for success.

    Go to college.

    Or just read to learn instead of working in a warehouse.

    If you are a native speaker of English,it's confirmed you can earn a living with IM.

    Go back to school, so that you won't regret later in Life. No matter the money you make, school certificate should be with you. you can even brag about it.

    How much can you make working in a warehouse? Some unionized workers are making $20+ an hour and some college grads are working at Starbucks serving coffee. YOU could always save some money up and hitch hike to Mexico. Work your way South until the money runs out and you find some inspiration.

    I see you having 2 good options here:

    1. Since you are already trolling around the BHW forums, I'm pretty sure you're interested in IM or anything related to it. You might as well get into it and make some serious cash doing it. You can work at the warehouse and do SEO/IM on your spare time that you can learn from and do long term once you get the hang of it.

    2. Go back to school and get a better job in the future.

    It's up to you of course but one advice I think you should listen to...

    Are you interested in a certain major? You don't want to go back to school with no plan because that can easily lead to you dropping out or leaving soon after.

    Decide what your goals in life are.

    Then ask yourself whether working in a warehouse or furthering your education will be the best step towards achieving those goals.

    I think the answer is obvious.

    I can't imagine too many goals that would be achieved best by working in a warehouse.
