I finished 10th grade. I was given a choice b my grandmother who I lived with at the time to either get a full time job and support her or stay in school and be homeless.
I am 21 now, I have been married to a man who owns his own business for 3 years. The business is not doing well at the moment and I am trying to find a job. No luck since I am a high school drop out. People looks down on me. They think I am uneducated and dumb (not true, I am actually intelligent, I love to read)
The only thing keeping me from the GED is the math part. I fail it everytime. I was in honors classes in every subject but math. I have never been able to grasp it.
What are some jobs I would be able to do without a high school diploma?

Don't give up on the GED...you can get books that help with the math part too. I totally understand how you feel about Math....I was the same way. Honors English, but struggled in Math. Had to have tutors in college.
Have you ever considered starting YOUR own business?? I have a business marketing degree but I am a Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics. Everyone thought I was throwing my degree away because you DON'T have to have a degree or a high school diploma to start your own business. If you would like more info, feel free to PM me. I have been a consultant since I was 18 years old.
