I remember when I had my daughter, I was so excited to be a new stay-at-home mom, but I was also relieved to leave my nursing career behind me. You see, before I had my daughter, I had worked as a nurse for many years. It was a career that utterly stressed me out and that I didn't enjoy at all. So being an at-home mom was my number one priority, and figuring out how I was going to reinvent my career was my second.
I knew that I didn't want to return to the nursing field, and I also knew that I didn't want to go back to school. I already had two college degrees, and taking on a full course load while taking care of a newborn sounded dreadful.
Plus, I had no clue what I wanted to do next. Had I gone back and gotten my Master's degree, it's very likely that the skills I would have acquired would be outdated by now since technology has evolved at an accelerated rate.
So, I did a TON of online and offline research trying to figure out what career path I should take next. Through some trial and error, I eventually fell into freelance marketing, and two years after I began my stay-at-home journey, I launched my blog.
Today, you don't have to go back to college or spend two years of trial and error time to figure out how to reinvent your career.

How Skillshare Helped Dylan
Dylan Mierzwinski is a great example of someone who used Skillshare to grow both personally and professionally. Dylan originally graduated with a graphic design degree, but her real passion was illustration. With the help of illustration classes on Skillshare, Dylan was able to leave her traditional graphic design work behind her and go after her calling as an illustrator. Not only is Dylan happier on her new career path, but she's giving back to the Skillshare community by teaching others new skills (and making money from her classes as well!).
Even though I've successfully reinvented my career, I still need to hone my skills to keep up with all of the ever-changing technological advances, and Skillshare helps me do just that with classes in business analytics, marketing, sales, home business, and more!
