I firmly feel that finishing one’s college education gives you a heads-up advantage in today’s world ~ online courses gave me the confidence to start my online Bonanza Booth store where I sell vintage sewing patterns.
Over the years, after working in various administrative assistant jobs, it had been in the back of my mind that I really wanted to finish my degree. By that time 20 years later, I had a FT job, house, 2 young kids & thought ‘how in the world am I ever going to do this?’ Then I happened upon an ad for adults to complete their degrees through non-traditional methods, including online, correspondence & video courses at Charter Oak State College.
