The short truth is that unless you're born into it, making money isn't as simple or as easy as "skipping past the BS", and as a 16 year old, you're not going to make a lot of money right now. It's just not going to happen and the best advice I have is to get that thought out of your head.
You need to put in the hard work to build a sustainable model for yourself or else you're going to go through life bouncing between a series of small, short-term wins only. If you don't have a solid foundation, these small wins you might have now will dry up over time and you'll be left with nothing in the future.
University or formal education might not be for everyone, but you need to always keep an open mind, always soak up new experiences and realize that you have to keep on learning in order to grow. Stay in school now and take it seriously - don't dismiss the idea of higher education just yet either. Get a part-time job so you understand what it means to make money in the first place. You might not have passions now, but you're young so you need to open yourself up to these experiences so you can learn more about yourself, what you enjoy, and what you can grow into.
