I'm a 37yo assistant. i have been at this job for 4 years and in this industry for about 12 years. I have been doing IM since 2009.
I have been thinking about going back to college and finish my degree in hopes of finding a better job. problem is I don't know what i want to do. I was going to get my degree in general studies or organizational studies from a well known school in my area.
going to get the degree online because i also have a family, wife and two kids. so that takes up a lot of time.
if i get the degree in three years, its possible to be in the same boat but i'll have a degree and more debt (student loans) or i could stay in IM trying to start my own business and in three years either be making money or in the same position as today.
the most money i have made online is $500 and that was due to flipping websites online. never made anything from article marketing or the 35 autobloggs with adsense.
i notice with im i continue to jump from strategy to strategy because I'm really not sure what works. the only thing that seemed to work was flipping sites. but that doesn't seem like real money.
the only thing I do know is that i do not want to be anyone's assistant any longer.
With having a family my time is limited so i want to do the best thing to help me put myself in a better position.
any thoughts you may have would be greatly appreciated.
