    I made that u turn and I agree that our time is now and Allen School online is the best choice. It’s never to late and it’s a worth while experience to seek out for yourself and know that you can make a change in your life for the better.

  2. If you are unhappy, then why waste your life? You only get one chance at this. I spent too many years behind a desk before we decided to take the plunge and making change that was important for me. Sure it was daunting and risky, but I have absolutely no regrets and can wake up every day saying that I love my life.

  3. I think Julia is very brave for her decision & that her entrepreneurial spirit is really showing through!

    Considering what type of life you want to live, and what commitments you already have, will have an impact on your career decisions. Some of these things such as financial commitments, will have to be met whatever you do. Other things, such as how much time you have to spend with family or doing activities you enjoy, may be flexible.

    Having a good think about these things may help to narrow down options, and reach a decision.
