There is always consumption.
So marijuana grower is a budding new industry.
Others require a degree in chemistry and physics.
Embalmer is a steady business...there is never ANY COMPLAINTS from the client. If you know how to gut a fish...you are halfway there.
Weatherman for a TV station. You got to look good in front of a camera while you LIE about the weather forecast. Even when wrong you get a full pay check.

There are a lot of jobs available for those without a college degree, but keep in mind that many will still require some form of training, and success is not guaranteed in any occupation (even for those with a college degree).
Here are some possible jobs:
- Driver (taxi driver, bus driver, uber driver, etc...)
- Administrative jobs
- Entertainment jobs
- Free lancer
- First line supervisor
- Post officer
I'm sure there are more jobs as well, which you can research depending on your interests. Remember, even without a college degree, you will need some sort of skills, training, or qualifications for many of these jobs.

There are some good jobs that don't "require" a degree but if a job is really good and pays very well then you will still be competing against people with degrees. A person with a degree is overwhelmingly seen as a better candidate for almost any job than someone without a degree. Landing a very good job with no degree is most likely going to require that you start at the bottom then take from 2 to 8 years to work your way up. That, of course, may or may not happen.

I'd suggest the skilled trades: I've known electricians and plumbers who've earned more than me (a lawyer) per annum.
That said, there's still a lot of training involved. -That- said, if there's an apprenticeship program, they'll pay you to train, unlike you having to pay (like for college).

There are a lot of jobs that require a little technical training- like HVAC installer- but pay well and you don't need a college education. Try looking at what jobs are available in your area on Monster.com or one of the other job search sites.

I may be wrong about this but I've heard that you can become an air traffic controller.

Property management (renting/maintaining properties). On the office side, you can start in leasing and work your way up. On the maintenance side, you can begin learning the trades (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, etc.) and you'll be set up for life. A ton of property management companies provide rent discounts (even free rent), paid training, and career advancement opportunities. It's not for everyone, but it's good work if you can hack it.
