Have you ever felt like you were settling for less than what you were destined for?  Maybe thoryou felt you had no choice but to settle.  Many of us get married, have kids and feel like our priority must be to get food on the table and a roof over our head.  The kids grow up and move on but are you still stuck in the downward spiral?  Are you struggling in a Sarasota dead end job with no upward mobility?   If you have settled for a job you hate and a wage that is not sufficient to raise your family, you do have choices.  There is no reason that you can’t dream big no matter what your age.

How you live your life in North Port and how you choose to succeed is up to you.  You can remain in your current situation or you can make the necessary changes to better your life.  Maybe you always wanted to go to college but life got in the way.  There is no time like the present to go to college and earn that degree.  You can continue to work full-time and take classes in the evening, working towards an associate or bachelor degree.  Some individuals will qualify for the Pell grant and other scholarships as well to pay for education, so make sure you fill out the FAFSA to see if you qualify.  Start taking those management or engineering classes you always wanted to take.

If going back to school is not for you, why not consider your own home based business?  You can start part-time and as your income expands cut down on your hours at the current job.  There are many options in relationship marketing sales.  I prefer a business that caters to baby boomers and has been in business over 5 years with a steady increase in sales and profit.  That is one of the reasons I started my XO healthy chocolate business over 3 years ago.  The other reason is that I am a XO healthy chocolate customer as well.  I find that my health improves when I eat more antioxidants and XO cold pressed chocolate is a high antioxidant superfood.
