As a blue-collar entrepreneur with just a high school degree myself, one thing I’ve come to understand is that success comes in many shapes and sizes. Fortunately, many of them still do not require a college degree! The important thing is to identify what you really want and find out what it’ll take to get there.

So, just for fun, I wanted to run with Natalia’s theme a little bit and brainstorm the perfect blue-collar careers based on your zodiac signs. Take a read and let me know – does yours speak to you? 

♈ Aries

Personal Trainer  or Firefighter

Typically bold, engaged, and fired up, Aries like physical challenges and can excel in a high-energy job. Becoming a personal trainer is a great option (and the free gym-membership helps) and a career as a firefighter might also make for a good fit.

♉ Taurus

Bartender, Chef, Restaurant Owner, or Wedding Planner

Bar tender

Steadfast and strong-willed enough to deal with unpredictable situations, a Taurus might be a great fit for customer service. Love food or wine? This could be an especially attractive career. 

♊ Gemini

Hairstylist or Cosmetologist

Talkative, extroverted, great at connecting with people and helping them feel good about themselves, Gemini make for good beauty industry employees. If you’re a fan of beauty guru / MUA Youtube, it may be time to start experimenting. 

♋ Cancer

Veterinary Assistant

Working with animals is a good fit for your caring side, but working any job remote or in 1-on-1 settings can fit your desire to be a homebody. 

♌ Leo

Actor or Salesperson

You love the spotlight, work hard and have no fear when it comes to pursuing your dreams. Those are the necessary skills for becoming a great actor (or salesperson). Already the star of drama club? This could be the path for you. 

♍ Virgo

Elevator Installer and Repairer or Florist

Your Type-A, perfectionist side makes you a natural fit for exacting positions. Get machines working just-so or flowers arranged precisely and you could build a nice career for yourself.

♎ Libra

Influencer, Blogger, or Wardrobe Consultant

You’re a great communicator and have a knack for inspiring and influencing others. Plus you’ve got an eye for trends. Working as an influencer, blogger, or wardrobe consultant might be right up your alley. 

♏ Scorpio

Graphic Design Artist…. Or Politician 

You’re intense, creative, and have so much to share. Why not make art? Graphic design, makeup, fashion – work in the business of self-expression and you could live a happy life. Or… give local government a spin and see where it takes you. 

♑ Capricorn

Welder or Landscape Designer

Welder

You work hard and have an intense eye for detail. If you work your way up in the trades you could build your own business. 

♐ Sagittarius

Flight Attendant or Travel Agent

You have serious wanderlust – so fly away! Flight attendants get to see the world and provide priceless customer experiences – a natural fit.

♒ Aquarius

Postal Worker or Comedian

People might tell you that you’re a little kooky or offbeat. Well, postal workers and comedians get to connect and get insight into the private lives of others, which will activate your air sign sensibilities. 

♓ Pisces

Medical Assistant or Life Coach

You’re a softy who loves helping and connecting with others. Working directly with patients gives you daily human connection and provides a nice outlet for compassion. 

You know what else doesn’t require a degree? Becoming a writer. I hope to stay in touch as my book Blue Collar Cash progresses. It will have excellent advice on finding a career that fits your passion, financial planning, and goal-setting. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
