When times are tougher and the budgets get tighter, it can cause some people in Dallas, Texas, or Tyler, Texas to start looking for ways to make more money so that they'll never go through that level of financial strain ever again.

That makes sense, doesn't it? Of course, it doesn't matter how much money you make if you are hell-bent on spending every last penny without paying yourself first. Even more detrimental is spending money you don't truly have in the bank.

I can't tell you how many stories we've heard about people getting 'rich people' jobs, getting an inheritance, or even winning the freaking lottery who end up practically broke because of poor personal money management.

But that's a topic for another day.

It is encouraging to know that you can make different choices for your life if you're willing to take the steps to get there.

Despite the outcry from many about the lack of opportunity, there is so very much of it. That's not to say systemic changes aren't due that would make it a bit easier on those who want to change their circumstances but didn't begin with some of the same advantages as others. Because, YES changes still need to be made.

Yes, some of these require a college degree, but not all necessarily. Believe me, I know how extraordinarily expensive college has become--even compared to my college years. We have to decide if it's worth it or not. Choosing to go to college is also not a requirement for building wealth, necessarily.

One that was NOT on this list, of course, was being a business owner generally speaking. Because this is a list of 'jobs.' Some of these can LEAD you to own your business, however.

That being said, if you'd like to take a look at 7 'rich people' jobs available here in Texas according to a report shared by GoBankingRates that can significantly impact your wealth if you manage your money, let's take a look.
