Investing in Professional Self, and Good Test Results!

April 9th, 2018 at 11:32 am

I'm in second the ten-week quarter for a graduate cerficiate in Organizational Development. This is the third week of classes; I am fairly organized in what needs to be done as far as the research project for my Methods class (meeting with library research specialist tomorrow) and also for a two-weekend seminar.

I found out that I can attend the university's Lecture/Speaker Series for free. I have decided to purchase the speaker's book and attend the Meet and Greet the night before for network purposes, and I've also decided to pay $130 for the annual student fee to join the professional network.

I think that I've realized that sometimes capital needs to be invested into a product in order to keep it current. Or, Hello Professional Life.

Also: I've ammended this to say thank you for the prayers and well wishes from the earlier post where I mentioned a new nodule on DH's lung. He's two years post cancer diagnosis and his doctor is conservative. The results of the PET scan were fine, non cancer. Thank you again! Anxiety is ugly.

    Good for you! I'm in total agreement that sometimes you have to invest in professional development in order to make progress, and sometimes the money comes out of your pocket first before you reap the rewards in terms of new professional opportunities. Following that idea has worked well for me as I made the transition from academia to becoming a tax accountant, getting certified (CPA), and then transitioning to the wealth management industry (where I am currently pursuing my CFP). I've landed at my dream job and it wouldn't have happened if I hadn't invested in myself first!
