Help Your 16-20 Year Old Build the Life They Want

The Degree Free Way will teach you how to guide your young adult to a path that helps them:
Skip the College Cost
Discover Better Options
Gain Clear Direction
The Degree Free Way Set

Young adults are taught to pick work the wrong way.

The current system teaches them to pick their path based on random personality tests and high school "passions".
Their life goals are never part of the process. This causes unnecessary stress, wastes years, and creates mountains of college debt.
No one asks them the simple question: “Will this job help you build the life you want?”
Focusing on their goals will help them get work that lets them live the life they want. Yet, current career counseling is a maze of outdated advice and unnecessary assessments that lead nowhere.
For years, there wasn't a better way.
Overworked guidance counselors and late-night Google searches are the only sources of information. Putting all that information together is confusing and overwhelming. There’s no strategy to discover jobs that will work for your young adult. There’s no clear way to help them sort through their options.
No one has put it all together — until now.
The Degree Free Way has helped hundreds of families launch their young adults into their independent lives.
Included are all the exercises and frameworks you need to guide your young adult to job options that enable them to reach their goals.

The Degree Free Way Side By Side


I’m looking for options other than college for my child. Will this help us?
Absolutely, this is exactly what you're looking for! Our workbook set is designed specifically for exploring a wide range of career options beyond buying a college degree. It’s packed with practical exercises and guidance to help your young adult discover career paths that help them reach their life goals, and how they can get there without a degree.

You and your child will work together through the steps, uncovering opportunities that align with their goals. It’s all about creating a clear and promising future so they can live the life they want.
What age is this for?
Our workbooks are for parents and their 16-20 year old children to make big decisions about their futures.
What if my child has no idea what they want to do?

Great! They don't have to know. We'll help them figure it out!

The Degree Free Way guides you and your young adult through exercises to identify their life goals. It lets them explore different career paths they hadn't thought of. This helps them figure out which jobs fit their goals.

By the end of the book, they'll have a clear path forward!

What if my child already has a career in mind?

Our workbook helps confirm if the chosen career aligns with their life goals. It will also help them decide whether or not buying a degree is necessary for that career path.

The Degree Free Way is especially useful if you're worried about how realistic their career plans are. It will help them see if their chosen path will let them live the life they want.

What if my child doesn't like or do "well" in school?

It doesn't matter.

The Degree Free Way focuses on practical, real-world career paths, not scores from a failing school system. It provides pathways to fulfilling careers without the need to buy a college degree.

How is this different from traditional career counseling?

Unlike status quo career counseling, which often focuses on personality tests, academic scores, and degree paths, The Degree Free Way prioritizes your young adult’s life goals first. Once those are identified, they'll find career paths that enable them to achieve those goals.

The Degree Free Way provides personalized guidance and real-world strategies to achieve life goals without a college degree.

Will this workbook really help my child find a career?

Yes! Our workbook provides practical exercises and guidance based on proven methods. Many young adults have successfully used our strategies to find fulfilling careers without needing to buy a degree.

Will this really help my child avoid college debt?

Yes! The workbook focuses on finding career paths that don’t require a degree, thus avoiding the high costs of college tuition. It helps identify alternative education and training options that are cost-effective and directly aligned with career goals. Our methods have saved families millions of dollars.
