As we kick off the new work week, how many of you wish you could walk into your bosses office and quit the job you're working in now?

It's not necessarily a bad job, but maybe you're working in an industry that didn't picture yourself in at this stage in your life.  Have you thought about going back to school to learn something new and pursue a real career that actually inspires you to get up and go to work every day?

You may have thought about it before, but something's holding you back.  If you're one of the amazing mothers in the Treasure Valley that list of reasons why you think you can't might look something like this:

  • I've been a stay at home mom for years, I don't know if I'd be successful getting back into a classroom.
  • Taking classes will take time away from my children.
  • I'm too old to go back to school.  My kids understand today's technology more than I do.
  • Our family doesn't have enough money for me to be able to afford school.

We want you to shred that list of reasons why you think you CAN'T, because we're teaming up with our friends from the College of Western Idaho to show you that you CAN! Mom's Next Move is here!  We're giving you a chance to go back to school so you can turn that interest or hobby that you love into a full blown career! Take a leap of faith and fill out the form below for a chance to win a FULL YEAR'S SCHOLARSHIP to CWI! 

We've spent a lot of time getting to know CWI's students over the last few weeks.  So many of them are rockstar parents who are making school and their family responsibilities work together.  A big part of that is because CWI offers a really flexible path to your dreams! Several moms say they worked out their class schedule to take classes while their children are at school and that the family enjoys homework time together every night. Others say their class work has actually taught them some valuable skills that they've been able to incorporate into their current jobs or households.  Many had the same doubts you do about being "too old" or too far behind to successfully get a degree, but say it hasn't been a problem  because the teaching staff at CWI will go the extra mile and spend as much extra time with their students as they need.

When I asked the students to give people who were on the fence about going back to school a bit of advice, they all agreed on one think: At no stage are you tool old or far behind to make a change and do something that inspires you. Do it now, because you could've been been finished with your program in the time you spent thinking about it!
