Here I am 31 years old married and my wife works at a child care center. We both work full time. I work at a warehouse job pulling orders, packing and receiving. I have been there a little bit over two years. It's a dead end job though. No room to grow. I just wanted to know how do you people do it? I'm talking about the people that have $50,000-$100,000+ annual salaries with no degrees. Did you start your own company, got some extra training or sheer luck? I mean when I can get paid $12.00 an hour I'll be happy. Right now things are tight because of all the medical bills we are paying. I will be looking for a second job. At the same time I will be looking for a full time job as well. If you can give any advice to myself and others here on Reddit would appreciate it. I just want a better life for my wife and future kids. I would love to have my wife stay home with our future kids but right now it's not a possibility. I just wanted to let you know that I will be enrolling in my local community college in August. Then heading to my state university for my Bachelor's. I'm excited for that. With any new information I can learn here plus with my degree in the next few years I can provide stability and financial peace for my future family. I always tell people. If I'm ever successful I will NEVER be one of those guys that spends thousands of dollars on luxury cars, toys or anything else i don't need. I would want to donate to charity. I was driving home from work and saw a single mother with her I think 4 year old and pushing her stroller with a baby in it. If I had the money I would have pulled over and given her whatever cash I had on me. I would have loved to seen her reaction.
