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.
