Master's in Business Administration

I dropped out of school to have my first child when I was 16. Yep, I was a baby having a baby but I did not let that hold me back. At 18 I went to night school to get my GED and at 24 I went to school to become a Respiratory Therapist. I am 3 classes short for my Bachelor's. I have toyed with the idea of finishing my BS and then go on for a Master's in Business Administration.

My kids were 1, 2 and 9 when I went back to school. It got even harder when I suddenly became a single parent with no financial resources. I applied for food stamps and financial aid through the state. When I told them I wanted to continue with school they were shocked! I actually had to present my case to a group of people to get approval to continue my studies. It's different now, but back then it was unheard of. I got the approval and I became a Respiratory Therapist!

Now I blog for a living but I still have dreams! I would like to one day own a business and I am sure a Master's in Business Administration would help me with my dream. I would like to own a bar. My daughter wants her own bookstore. We all have dreams and education is the road to fulfilling your dreams. Do you have a dream?
