Life stops with your education, that’s what I firmly believe and why I urge all of my clients- even those who are NOT parents to consider putting aside some money to further their skills later in life.
The fact is that the job market is not at all the same as it was 20 years ago. People simply don’t stay at a company their whole careers and there is an expectation on employees to constantly learn and up-skill their abilities to stay indispensable.
Even courses that last only a few days can yield rewards (like certifications)…. But they can also be very costly if your company is not paying for them.
There is also the matter of living a fulfilled life, something I want you to be able to achieve.
Whether you want to change careers, or simply improve your standing in your existing profession, adult education has become the norm rather than the anomaly, and is something I encourage you to get excited about and to plan for- both from a time management, and financial, perspective.
If you have an education goal in mind for yourself, let me know and I will help you structure a realistic funding plan for this.
Don’t let your dreams go unattained because you don’t think you have what it takes. Go out there and GET what it takes.
