Looking to Make Money Online Without a Degree?


Are you looking for advice on how to make money online without a degree? Looking for a career online but worried that you are not academically up to standard?

Don’t worry – I was in the same boat once upon a time.

I’ll level with you here – I had a blast in school…but not for the right reasons!

I had a lot of friends, I had numerous girlfriends (wink), and I had a good time…but I did not do myself justice on the education side of things…and I did regret it when I got into my twenties.

But all that type of jive doesn’t matter these days – anyone can build a business and be successful as long as they have a few simple tools…

Don’t worry – this isn’t going to be an article filled with all that spiritual type of crap. I haven’t got the time for that jive, and I’m pretty sure you haven’t either!

So what do I mean by having a positive mindset?

Well, it’s simple enough really – are you willing to learn something new and work at it at your own pace, knowing full well that it’s going to work out in the end?

I’m kinda hoping you just answered ‘yes’ to that question…


We’ve all got them these days – it doesn’t even need to be a desktop, a simple $250 laptop will do the trick just fine!



We all have some sort of hobby or talent that feeds our soul – it doesn’t matter how diverse they are – we all have them!

Did you know you can turn this passion into a thriving business?

Hold on a minute – I’m jumping the gun there a bit – I’ll be talking about that angle later on this post…



It’s important to note that when you start any sort of business you are going to go through a few ‘hungry months’.

What do I mean by this?

Well, I’d be extremely surprised if you earned ANYTHING in the first couple of months!

You need you self-motivation and a positive mental attitude to move ahead without giving up.

I gotta be honest with you – it’s certainly NOT rocket science (AKA – if I can do it, anyone can!).

The problem with most people who come online to ‘earn their fortune’ is that they’ve been blinded by the bright lights of a dodgy affiliate marketer – you can earn a million online, of course you can…but you are going to have to work HARD at it to get there!

You up for that?

  1. I am currently a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and I completely agree with you here. It is the only place you need to go to learn how to build a passive income online. I love how you pointed out that you need to have a positive mental attitude because in the beginning you’ll have to work with not much reward. 

    I know you said you can build an income without going Premium, but do you think it’s better / faster / easier to get an income going if you do go Premium? What do you think the benefits are of a Starter Membership versus a Premium Membership? 

    1. Yeah I do Christina, 

      Premium certainly offers you a lot more ‘perks’ to help with the business, but as I said above, I do know of people that have succeeded with the Starter Accounts. 

  2. Greetings Chris,

    Wow this article really resonates with me. I was basically in the same boat as you when I finished college and after hustling the 9-5 schedule I am pursuing a career online. I am a relatively new affiliate marketer so I am still learning the nuances to how various revenue streams can be built but I am in complete agreement that the best place to start is with Wealthy Affiliate. 

    The tolls you have laid out are all skills that anyone can acquire without having a degree. In fact, many of my friends are finding much more lucrative careers in fields that have nothing to do with their degrees while others are succeeding online without degrees. I can also definitely testify that people within the WA community are making real money and offer lots of support to new members.

    I am curious to know a little more about your experience with the WA Affiliate Bootcamp. I am currently working to complete my Affiliate marketing training certification but I want to pursue the bootcamp as a next step. How is it different from the affiliate training? Would I be making a new site focused on consulting and recruiting new members to Wealthy Affiliates? 

    Great article, wishing you continued success!

    Cheers 🙂

    1. I’ve got to be honest with you Connor – I completed my Bootcamp many years ago now, and I think it’s probably changed by this point. I do remember the Bootcamp concentrating more on the ‘make money online’ niche as opposed to all affiliate avenues…

      But, like I said, that was a long time ago now! 🙂

  3. Hello, earning money without being educated is nowadays talk of the globe, however crooks or the bad guys are taking good chances to enrich themselves by enticing people into showing them too good to be true business opportunities. 

    WA affiliate as you mentioned it, it is the most valuable and honest marketing affiliate as it is clear with its method of earning money and make it clear that you have to work as money does not grow on trees or fall from the sky, thus they provide free training. WA is the best. 

    1. Yeah there are plenty of scams out there Nellyao – but all you have to do is read the reviews on this site to find out who to avoid! 🙂

  4. The positive mental attitude part for success, I couldn’t have said it better Chris!

    Even until today when I’ve started earning, I jut can’t quite put a finger on why I’m doing it and I asked myself, should I quite or not? There are just so much to do and so little time to do it but seeing how other people like Vitaliy and grace got successful by pouring in years of heard work, I can only imagine how strong their mental willpower is.

  5. I agree that you don’t need a degree to make money online, as nothing I have ever learnt at university has helped me to earn money online. You only need the passion, commitment, the correct tools and most importantly the patience to make money online. And I do agree that Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to start, with its excellent training resources and great community

    1. I’ll respond to both you and Riaz in the same comment, as you’ve both agreed with me! 🙂 

      Thanks for stopping by and reading our article.

  6. Hey Chris,

    I am agreeable with you – many successful entrepreneurs don’t own a degree or a high school dropout. For example, take a look at Steve Jobs who has not completed his college and make billions with his creation – Apple because he has right mindset, positive mental attitude and a passion for success.

    As long you have these types of traits and a mindset willingness to success, you can do it even without any academic qualification.  But it wasn’t an overnight success, you need to get some training and most importantly hard work. Wealthy Affiliate is definite the right place to learn and earn at the same time. 

    Great article keeps up with the good job.


  7. Wow! I’m amazed at your structure in delivering this write up. Wealthy Affiliate is the best platform for anybody who aims to make a living from internet marketing. Though passion, positive mentality, stable internet access and positive mindset are the basic requirements for anyone to succeed. Its my passion for affiliate marketing that has been pushing me through all the hurdles I have been facing. Though, wealthy Affiliate provides support and unimaginable help for everyone but the main drive is from within.

    Thanks for this insights.

    1. Hi there RoDarrick (I like that name by the way!!!) 🙂

      Sounds like the WA has cast it’s magic over you at some point in time – have you been a member there for long?

  8. You are right it is a great platform! It has everything so you can get trained, build websites, promote and network.

    I have been with these guys for a while now, we started strong a few years ago but gave up due to family, probably be retired by know if we didn’t quit.

    Now we are back and in full swing, a lot more passionate this time for we found our niche that we loved.

    We were trying to make money first and not follow our passion, that just doesn’t work.

    1. Hi Kris, 

      Well a lot of us find it hard to give the platform 100% of our time, as you say – family life (and life in general) often gets in the way. Give us a shout in the community – would love to chat further! 🙂

  9. In this article you explain that  to learn wealthy affiliate marketing,  is a great opportunity to make money without degree.I am agree with you.  To start up an online business around our passion or interest , the Wealthy Affiliate is the only place we should be considering.  Do you think it’s better / faster / easier to get an income going if we do go Premium? I am curious to know a little more about your experience with the Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you so much for sharing this information.

    1. Hi there!

      Premium is definitely the way to go if you are serious about building up a BIG and successful online business. But it’s also worth pointing out that the Starter membership is great for smaller online businesses.
