You need to get with someone who knows a trade. You don't even need a diploma of any kind. Just show up to work, do work, and learn the trade. If one was smart they would save up the money they earn from their trade, and maybe flip/ build homes one day. I went from like 15k a year to 100+ with no skills, diploma, or anything prior. I just showed up to work for like 5 years and inevitably ended up doing it all myself. Next step is to start investing into real estate. I've spent so many years in construction I know the ins and outs of home flipping/ building, and also have connections with other contractors.
In the end nothing is easy. On top of working extreamly hard I had to cut all of the vices out of my life just to get ahead. That and not spend money on worthless stuff. That made a huge difference.
