Maybe the traditional degree isn't for me. I've been working on a degree (I have most general requirements) for a very long time now. I've changed my course several times, Nursing, accounting, teaching, dental, law school. I'm thinking maybe I'm not going in the right direction with a formal education. So now i'm thinking I can go to school for Esthetician licensing. My sister owns (with four other owners) 5 body waxing salons in colorado and it's a business that is doing really good. Even with this economy, her books are full. It seems the traditional requiements to get a degree is taking so long for me an if I can train for a few months I'd be able to start working a new career.

The plan is to change my degree from nursing to the accounting field. I've been enrolled at a university for about a year and half right now, and i'm already changing my plan, i've wasted so many years attending college only to change my degree plan and not getting any where. Since I have worked in my current position which includes data entry, accounts recievable, customer service I thought an associate degree in accounting would be my bette bet. But now I'm thinking of taking the dental assisting courses to get a "part time" type of job to add extra income. that means I would not start back at the university until this December. I'm also looking at applying to the State of Colorado for possible opportunities with added benefits. I'm thinking what happens happens, maybe the dental thing could take me to better employment opportunities or I could find a better job with the state. I don't know but I do know I should be trying to find out if there could be more opportunity for me out there.
