Has it really been three months since my last post? Man, time flies! I had to step away because my final semester got really crazy. I felt like I was on the verge of failing and I kept thinking to myself, I did not come 2 years to not graduate on time. Well, the good news is... I PASSED! So, although it was hard for me to step away from the baby I built up over the past year, it was worth it! I am now officially an MBA, and I am so proud of myself for it. The next question is what next? What do you do with a newly minted MBA? When I started my graduate school journey, I was in a different mind space. I wanted to work my way up the corporate ladder and become a VP of HR. Now, HR is no longer my focus, and I don't really have the desire to work for anyone else in corporate America. So, now what?
I tossed a few ideas around like continuing on to get my Ph.D. so I can be a college professor. I feel like it would be an excellent way to mesh my two loves (HR and personal finance). It would be almost impossible to do that in any other setting. Also, I am always complaining about schools not teaching personal finance topics so why not be part of the solution instead of whining about it? Then, I also think about how long and arduous this MBA was, and a Ph.D. would be double that. Whew! I don't know. Only time will tell!
In the meantime, I am back to focusing on my CFP (Certified Financial Planner) studies and giving you all the personal finance information you were craving. Don't worry! Even if I do go the Ph.D. route and get accepted, the cohort doesn't start until next fall, so I'm not going anywhere anytime soon! In my 2018 recap, I will go into my current numbers and show you where I stand. The hiatus was tough without you all there to keep me accountable!
