You need a degree to be a doctor, veterinarian, or a lawyer – it's actually illegal to perform these jobs without a degree... but is it worth it?

Today's question is from a parent whose daughter wants to be a veterinarian. He is worried that it will be an expensive first couple years of college, only for his daughter to realize that it's not the major that suits her.

Well, he is not overreacting. College tuitions are soaring and student debts are piling up beyond belief.

College is a great way to figure out who you are and what you want to do with your life... but is it the only way?

Is there a way to find out if you enjoy a job before paying thousands of dollars a year for a degree?

Of course!

In fact, there are a ton of different alternatives for someone to figure out where they are supposed to be and what they want to do in life.

Let's face it... some of us are still trying to figure things out years after college. So why stress yourself or your children out with the burden of debt?

With James' wide range of experiences and unique outlook on life, you will begin to see opportunities that you might have been overlooking.

And maybe... you can figure out what you want to do in life before spending thousands of dollars for a piece of paper.
