Now is a great time to pursue your dream. Why not study what interests you? It is never too late to make a decision to start a new career. Perhaps you would like to start a new business? Being an entrepreneur is great. There has not been a better time for me to pursue higher education than in this season of life. Returning to college to complete my education has been one of the best decisions I ever made. Now, as I continue my education, I also encourage others as an educational mentor and ESL/ESOL writing consultant.
There are hundreds of ways to approach returning to college. Of course, attending full time means completing a degree program quicker than if you attend part-time. If you are working full-time and think part-time night classes are best at this stage of your life--take the plunge! Dive into a new school and get busy pursuing your dream of a higher education. Statistics don't lie. Those with at least a bachelor's degree earn more money than those without a college degree. Ever been passed over for a job because you did not have the degree? Why not seek higher education and see where it leads you.
Believe in yourself. Who knows, maybe you will be surprised to find yourself in a new job or business when you least expect it. It did not occur to me that I would be in the midst of a degree program and find myself starting a new business. A natural progression took place and I found myself working to help others meet their goals. I believe that when one is in their element, working in a field that is well suited for them, the income is automatic. One is rewarded for working hard and serving others to the best of their ability.
Moving forward is the key--one day at a time. Brick by brick, the foundation is laid. The design is up to you. You are the architect in charge of this project.
