Stuck in a rut about college? Long, but deeply appreciated if I can get your help?

Okay so I’m in an online college so I can stay home and raise my family. It is a very easy to operate system and I like the way things run, I am just losing interest in it. I am supposed to be graduating next year around August with an Associates in Business. My husband and I have been planning to open up a car shop so I would need some education on business management to run it… I am not wanting to do the work and I am expecting our next child next month (can barely believe I am saying that -wow time has flown!).

I took an online quiz that kind of matches personality to a career type… I know many have done these for fun, or for insight, but I did one I had never taken before and my results actually reflected me a little:
Novelist
Photographer
Vet
Medical Technician
Paralegal
Geologist
Marine Biologist
Graphic Designer
Online Content Developer
Webmaster
Computer Security
Producer
Computer Programmer
Technical Writer
Systems Analyst
Meteorologist
Artist

A couple of those I wanted and talked about doing in high school before family life came around and I also have heard the reputations with some of them not being able to guarantee a good career choice. Ultimately I want a family run business and I plan on staying home to raise/home school our children. For having been in this online college for a while now I am stuck on what to do? Do I continue with the business classes that I am getting bored and uninterested with? Do I change my major? Guess I am looking for more suggestions on how to approach this without just merely dropping out. I need 27 more credits (mind you- I had to retake 2 courses and was put on hold once…) but I am just not wanting to do anything. I’ve got a simple 1-2 page paper due in 30 minutes and I don’t want to write it. Its on motivation lol.

I am really frustrated and I don’t want to give up on the car shop and running it, I just don’t know how to go about this.

27 credits (9 classes) is a lot of classes for a major that you have no desire to be in anymore. If starting a car business with your husband is your dream, then you don’t even need a college degree. Look at the class offered and take the ones that you think would help you the most with the business.

If Business is not for you, is it possible to get a general studies associates and use the classes you already have towards it? Just a suggestion. I would hate to study something that I had no motivation for.

I would also suggest that you look into going to a regualr college. I take night classes so that I can raise my family. I would think online courses would get really boring because you are missing the social interaction with peers.

Good luck

  2. Finish your business degree because you will regret it if you did all that work and gave up. A lot of those careers that you mentioned are really great but some of them like photography can be more of a hobby. After you graduate I would recommend going back and doing a class like that for fun just to learn more and then do it on the side so you can still raise your family and help your husband run your all’s business. http://www.technical-schools-guide.com/technical-school-degree-programs.html
