Are you tired of barely making it and being broke? Millions of Americans are. The problem is most people don’t know what to do. Here’s  a solution and it’s not easy. How about changing your job?

You’re probably saying I’m too old, what job should you choose or how can I pay for it? First of all, age is really just a number. If you really want to do something you will do it and I know you can. Next, check out my list of highest paying jobs in America. The list includes the annual pay and schools that offer degrees in these jobs. FYI, medical jobs dominate. Finally, guess what? I’ve added links to scholarships to pay for it.

Sis, you have no excuse. I found the schools and scholarships. All you have to do is apply. You can do it. I believe in you. You deserve to believe in yourself. Good luck and share this post. The only limit you have is the one you have placed on yourself. Think and be limitless.

    You are the best for this list. I want to go into medical school. I am 24, broke, and have no kids or boyfriend. I’ve always been into the sciences, and after struggling in college from such hard courses, I got off track. I’m back at it again though. Applying to masters programs now.
