How to stay determined going to school, taking care of family, and running a business?

I want to stay encouraged pursuing my degree in nursing while I am taking care of my family and build my business. I have been wanting to go back to school for quite some time now. I left my previous employer thinking I was going to start a nursing program right away. Once I realized, that wasn't the case, I took the extra time that I have now to complete the requirements needed before starting the program. There are times I feel like giving up because of obstacles coming my way. The school I want to attend doesn't accept funds from private loans. I don't qualify for their grant since I already used it years before to earn my bachelor's degree. I have four children and I worry that I won't be able to balance taking care of them and staying focused in school. Earlier this year, I signed up with an organization that I am very passionate about and hope I will gain residual income from it. I never feel comfortable asking friends or family to purchase products from me. I prefer to use a product that perks their interests and then they will want to buy. I am open to hearing advice on not giving up and that it is possible to do it all. #back2school #fulltimemom #business

Is there a good way to find scholarships for vocational training and programs?

As a mom who works full time, I am looking for online vocational training/programs that I can do at my own pace. However, since our budget is tight and I will be needing to take a cut in hours, I am needing to find some funding for school. We prefer not to take out any loans as my husband already has several school loans we are trying to pay off. Any advice on the best resources on funding for vocational programs? #momlife #back2school #vocationalprograms #scholorships
