Hi, Don!

Thank you for responding. I agree, working from home can be challenging — and I am all by myself!

As to getting an MBA, for me I do not plan to. I had 10 years of working in corporate sales and business development before becoming an entrepreneur and learning a lot about the back end running of a business, and what I didn’t know, I’ve researched and learned when I need it. I can see how having an MBA might help a young or new entrepreneur without a lot of “business” experience, though.

I have thought about getting a master’s degree in writing or English or something similar. I have always wanted to go back to school, and it would be relevant. However, since I run my own business, I set my own prices and am not sure yet if having a master’s degree would actually change anything, or allow me to make more money, or do anything differently. And if it is not going to make a difference in my business, I am still not sure I can justify the expense and time to get another degree. It’s something I think about a lot, actually!
