Educate Thyself: A Primer

Bust of Mark Twain

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education” –Mark Twain*

I went $25,000 in debt to pay for my undergrad degree. With it, I taught high school English for six years, then worked as a corporate language coach for two more.

As I look to shift my career focus, I am finding that my degree just doesn’t cut it. I don’t have the skills employers want in my area, and I don’t want to pay for another degree to get them.

So, instead of throwing my hands in the air in despair, I am determined to get the education I need, on my own terms.

This blog will serve both to document my progress, but also as a place to put everything I learn in one place so that others won’t have to look so hard.
