    Ive been working in a warehouse since I started working. first job was picking cases, hard physical labor for 10-14 hours a day... whenever the work was done. got injured at that job, then got a job somewhere else making more money, doing the same thing... lifting 20-50 pound cases for 12 hours a night 5 days a week... did that for a year and a half. now im at another job where i still work 12 hour shifts in a warehouse, but i sit on a forklift all night. as of recently ive been really unhappy for a few reasons.. and the main one being .. "is this all there is out there"? Ive always been fascinated with warehouse work, its where things are made, and stored, and shipped out to customers and stores that uve probably been to in ur lifetime. I make DECENT money, but the 1 thing that has been holding me there is the fear that i cant find another job making decent money unless i go to college. is this true? all my friends work 8 hour shifts on days... they also dont make as much as me.... but is it possible for me to find a job that isnt warehouse, that doesnt require schooling either? i do plan on going to school, but not while im already working 12 hour shifts.... i feel trapped. any words of advice?

    Well, as you're posting this on BHW, you can read some topics here, to get you started with making money online.

    You can make some proper money with it, and you can life free (as long as you have internet, you can work from any place!)

    yeah i do some stuff online but its limited to what i can do because of my work hours. maybe the next week i take off from work ill devote some time rly figuring out what i can do on here. only downfall of working online is its not guaranteed income, but hey if u bank 5k in a week, take it easy for two more weeks i suppose. lol

    Actually, a job is no more guaranteed than working online. They can fire you, lay you off, business can shut down.... One huge difference is that in IM, you control your own time and income.

    College is not required regardless of how many sheep tell you it is*
    If you can produce results in many industries they will take you over some fresh out of college person. Things that don't require college would be the creative types of jobs such as art, 3d modeling. Learning (but not college) would get you work as a virtual assistant or possibly site manager for small companies. Hell, if you got the drive for it and have money you could even open up something related to warehouses if you like working there so much.

    My personal goal in life... Give college the middle finger and a "fuck you" to all those who say I can't make money without a degree. So far? Going good. Considering going to college for game design because why the hell not? The instructor is awesome and the students in that class are normally always the same. Playing CS/TF2 most days, talking about hookers other days, maybe sometimes doing game design. Not doing it? Testing the game by killing people. SCIENCE!

    * Some jobs do require college/uni to get. Accounting, sales, management, networking, medical and other very detailed industries will need it.
