I can’t believe it’s already been 30 episodes! Starting a podcast was just an idea I had back in April, and now here I am with 30 podcast episodes in the can. As I mentioned in the episode, this will be my last episode for 2015. I’ll be back the first week of January, but until then I’ve got a ton of work to do to switch over from to

That being said, I’ve already recorded two months’ worth of interviews for 2016, and I’ve gotta say there are some amazing guests in store!

I’ve also got some very exciting news to share about that super secret but totally awesome project I’ve been working on all fall. Make sure to check back here on Monday for all the details, or better yet sign up to my mailing list to find out first!

This episode, it’s my 4th solo episode and I’m considering it to be my last. I love sharing my opinions with you all, but I honestly enjoy hearing the stories and thoughts of others just a bit more.

But I’m really glad that my (potentially) last solo episode was on the topic of education. I’ve always been very passionate about higher education, and credit how far I’ve come in my career because of it. Sure, it wasn’t a straightforward road like I thought it would be before graduating from university, but the education I’ve received is seriously invaluable. And honestly, the older I get the more I appreciate higher learning.

With all that said, I still think that you can get a post-secondary education without getting into a huge amount of debt. It might just mean working while going to school, applying for scholarships, going to a school close to home, and choosing to forego going to university to go to a technical school instead.

I’d love to hear what you think about education. What was your experience like and was it worth it? Would you change anything? I’ve gotta say, looking back I kind of wish I didn’t take 5 years to complete my degree so I could have started working full-time sooner.
