How To Become a WAHM

October 25, 2010


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ashworth College. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am proud to be a WAHM– a “Work At Home Mom.” I had wanted to work at home for many years, and really didn’t know what to do or how to go about it. For me, it was a rather lengthy process of discovering WHAT to do and HOW to find opportunities; and I’m still in the process, actually. I’m currently a writer and pro-blogger, but I am always keeping my feelers out for other and additional opportunities. One thing I severely lack is education. I never went to college, and so my options are rather limited. I’m very happy as a “self-educated” writer, and I’ve learned a lot about blogging and web design along the way… but the job market is SO variable today. It is important to diversify one’s skills and be prepared for any job that may come down the pike. Moms are experts at diversification. šŸ˜€

The good news is that today, more than any other time in history, an education is attainable right at our fingertips. The birth of the Online College has opened up for us moms a whole new world! We can learn at our own pace, and tuition is usually much less expensive than an on-campus school. If you are interested in broadening your horizons, take a peek at Ashworth College, the very same Ashworth College Featured by National Education Report. Ashworth is unique because they offer training in fields specifically of interest to at-home moms or the worker desiring to branch out in a new career. The courses are enjoyable, very flexible, and AFFORDABLE. As a matter of fact, studies show that tuition fees at Ashworth are 50% lower than the average accredited online school. And Ashworth’s tuition includes course materials and books.

Ashworth’s courses are VERY diversified; you can earn your Associate Degree, Bachelor’s Degree, and Master’s Degree in accredited courses such as Marketing, Web Design, Medical Billing, Bridal Consulting, Interior Decorating, Human Resources, Early Childhood Education, and more. Or, earn a Certificate in the programs if you wish. See how flexible it is? And Ashworth can transfer up to 75% of your credits from other schools. See more about Ashworth at the Ashworth Video Gallery.

The job market is SO risky today. It is imperative that we diversify, and that we are trained to be able to compete in the job pool. The best part of it all is that you can still make the peanut-butter sandwiches and kiss the boo-boos while getting your education!

    I really need to check this out. I did have a couple years of college, but that AA degree in theology isn’t going to get me much of anywhere. Now that my kids are out of the house, it’s time for me to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.

      Anna, you have an AA in theology?!?! OMG that is so amazing!!!! But yeah, it’s not going to land you a career as a CEO or anything. Still, I think it’s very cool. I wish now that I had gone to college, just to get a certificate or something, as a backup. I have been considering an online education for a long time, but am still undecided.
