Schooling is required for every person on the planet in one form or another. Whether it be public schools, homeschooling, or the school of hard knocks on the streets.
So you ask why go back to school as an adult ? One reason learning, no matter how difficult is fun.
And now in the day and age we live in the more school you have attended the better your money earning capabilities will be.
I never finished High School and didn’t need it in my business of construction.
Later however I decided that having a diploma would be a good idea. So I went to the school my children were going to and looked into getting my GED with some classes they were holding there.
I went to about three classes and then my teacher called me to the front of the class and asked me what I was doing there.
I told her that I wanted my GED, she told me to just go take the test that I didn’t need these classes.
Well the real reason I went to these classes was to see if I still remembered what I had learned when I was in school.
And since I apparently did. I decided not to go take the test.
Now that I am in my 60s I’ve decided to go to college. And you ask yourself why go back to school as an adult.
The reason I now want to go back to school is I’ve been trying to find a way to make a living online.
While I have started my own online business I’m not getting the results I was looking for.
The business I started was after I sold my house so I would have the funds to indulge myself with this new venture. The first thing I did was join a new company that sent me to a place to get traffic.
I won’t mention the companies’s name but I will tell you where I went for traffic. The person I acquired my traffic from “Igor Kheifets” is a very magnetic and convincing person.
He convinced me to join him and let him set up my business and build my email list after doing this I expected to start making money right away.
As I have since learned the internet does not work that way. You need to be known by your customers and they need to trust you before they will break out their wallets.
I still email the list of over 7500 subscribers Igor built for me but I haven’t made a single sale as yet. This prompted me to pursue a different route.
Then I found Wealthy Affiliate and decided to join. I have learned so much in there that I had no idea I needed to know. I’m working on putting together a website that I can earn money from.
They are teaching me everything I need to know to do this but I’ve run out of money and am now homeless.
I thought going back to school would only enhance my learnings at wealthy affiliates and it would also give me a chance to get some grant money to support myself.
Go back to School Grants
I started looking for grants to go back to school and then thought, going back to school was going to be hard to do especially with all the things I was being required to learn now.
I put it off because of this but I’ve been reconsidering and I’m beginning to think
I was right in the first place. In school, I could get the business training I would need to keep my business running.
Go back to school grants is the only way I was going to afford it. I still need money to pay the bills while I get my website set up.
This is a big decision. I know if I do go back to school, I can eventually pass the classes but will I be able to continue going the way I’ve been going, after all I’m in the second half of my 60s now.
I’ve been telling people I’m going to live to be 300 years old and I believe that, but I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for a long time. Can I still keep up?
I’m inclined to think so since I haven’t slowed down at this point. People tell me I look younger now than I did ten years ago.
Keeping up or no keeping up I think I am going to say to Hell with it and dive right in. What have I got to lose besides my sanity and I think that’s in doubt now.
So look out cheerleaders here I come.
