SHOW NOTES: This episode is, “I went to school…but I never finished! How can I use the education that I currently have?”

The short “answer,” you can’t. You need to go back and complete school. The value in a credential is in obtaining the credential. Now that we have answered what to do (go back to school), the next step for you to determine is how (what school, when, etc.)!
