Starting School... Again.

Yesterday was my first day of class for my Master's Degree. I'm happy to say I made it through - barely!! ;)

I decided to head back to school for two main reasons:
1) In running this small business by myself, I've found some areas where I just don't know what I'm doing well enough! So getting a Master's in Business with an emphasis in Marketing should help me to run a better business and become more successful in the process.
2) To put it frankly, we needed the money from me taking out student loans and putting my current student loans into deferment. Yes, it's just using debt to pay off other debt, but at least it should be a lower interest rate than the debt I'll be paying off!

Not only was it my first day of my Master's degree, but it is going to be the first schoolwork that I take almost completely online! They make me go to campus for proctored exams, but otherwise everything else is via the web. There's a lot of new technology out there since I got my Bachelor's degree, so it's a little scary to dive in and see what I can do!

So, I guess I'll be more busy from now on, between running Java Jess Publishing full time and going to school full time. But I'm hoping it will be worth it!!


  1. I'm sure it will be worth it! Education is never a waste no matter how old you are. Congratulations on starting this new adventure.


  2. Congratulations on going back to school!
