Back to School!

At the end of this month I will be taking an online college course to complete my CIS: Networking degree. I have worked in the IT field for over 10 years but only only hold a degree in Finance. Even though the degree I will receive will be from a 2-year technical school I believe it will help me in job searching.

In the IT field certifications and experience are the top two items that land you an interview. I have a couple of certifications under my belt with more to come this year. I am starting with completing this final class to get a degree and then plan to move forward with Microsoft certification. Having both of these opens up newer (and higher paying) job options.

This is all part of my big picture plan of earning more so I can save more. The more I can save the sooner I can stop working all of the time and focus on what matters to me: travel, helping others, and freelance consulting. I understand that money is not everything but I have to increase my income to have any chance of getting to my goal before age 60 or later. Time is money too!
