The lack of a college degree is no problem when investing wisely. One of my all time favorite clients (and most knowledgeable) was a high school graduate and a very successful businessman.
The first two suggestions that come to mind are to find a community college course or adult education course in investing. Most are taught by investment professionals and offer good investing basics. Second, read as much as you can about investing. The largest number of titles available on Amazon.com relate to investing. You might also check the Financial sections of Yahoo and msn.com for ideas and market commentaries.
But get an education before you sacrifice your hard earned $6,000. There are a lot of folks and schemes out there who'd like ti get your $6,000.00.
