At 20, my friend encouraged me to go back to college. I was working full time and a single parent. I told her “going part time, it will take me ten years!”. She said, “So, what will you be doing in 10 years?”. At age 30, I got my bachelor’s degree. At 33, I finished my MBA. I’m 55 now and doing well. Thanks for the kick in the pants Shari.
