Knowledge for Working Mothers Or Those Wanting To Return To Work

I was a mother of two kids when I decided to go back to college. I pursued the avenue of Accounting. I actually enjoy doing it and have found it to be extremely helpful for us for our home businesses that we’ve been running. I personally haven’t used the degree outside of our home businesses since I’ve received it, but it is nice knowing I have the option to use it if needed.

I did also start the process of obtaining my bachelors degree for my project management degree. I’m exactly 8 classes away from graduating. I honestly and truly learned a lot in my classes, and love all the different programs I got to learn how to use. (If I could afford the money to own them, I would because it would help with running a household too.) Plus it has helped me be able to maintain running home businesses, homeschooling my kids, and running a household.

Granted, no one has to earn a degree to make money as much as they use to, but having a degree in a particular field of study increases your chances of promotion if you are working. I’ve learned that by going to college you gain a lot of useful information that you may not have taken the time to learn otherwise. My college courses are actually the reason why I’m able to work from home now.

I think Henry Ford originally stated this quote. However, don’t remember where that quote originally came from, but it definitely holds true! I guess that’s one of the big reasons why I home school my kids. I want to ensure they are actually learning the material, and not spending more time playing than learning. I just hope that they will pursue as much education as they can get their hands on the rest of their lives.

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
