So I’m in a pickle. I’m 26, been in car sales for 6 years, and have no college under my belt. I want to get out of the car business but do not know what to transition to especially with my lack of experience and making 100k a year. I can’t seem to find a solid exit strategy. Thoughts?

I’d stay in car sales if I were you.

Why’s that?

Try a coding bootcamp. Google coding bootcamp near you. There is lot of demand for coders.

You've posted this in the Salesforce bowl, so I have to ask: do you have any Salesforce experience? If no, that's an area you could explore. A ton of opportunities

If you do want to go the salesforce route, including the above recommendations check out your local Salesforce User Group in your city. They typically meet once a month or more based on your target role. That can really expedite your journey and light your path while getting to hear about other people’s experiences.

Have you considered getting a degree? A post baccalaureate MBA trek would get you more opportunities, but will take several years’ investment. I got my undergrad at 30, MBA from top 20 at 32.

IMO a coding boot camp is going to give you higher ROI in the short term. Obvs an MBA would give you higher upward mobility in the long run.

Look up high demand skills and certs and see which you like. Salesforce certification got me into tech space. Also, you have sales experience so consider tech sales.

What would you say your strengths and weaknesses are ?

Oh and say thanks when people give u help 😉
