Random Thoughts....

I've been doing a lot of research the past couple of days....after a talk with my mom and my husband I'm really kinda not sure which direction to go with my career. Both my mom and husband think that I would be a good athletic director on the high school level. I agree that is a path I've been interested in following, but the opportunities for being an athletic director are not common, plus very political and the number of female athletic directors in GA I could count on one hand...I know if that's the path I go, I will need to go back to school and earn a master's degree in sports management or earn an educational leadership degree. How hard is it to go back to school, work full-time and be a good wife and mom??? I think very difficult...plus cost $$$$$

The other path is being a personal trainer full-time and hopefully moving toward having my own non-profit organization that trains overweight kids and teaches health and fitness to inner city kids as well. I have a solid fitness certification, but I think I probably need another certification or even a management degree if I move to establishing my own organization...once again school, work, wife, mom which I don't know if I can handle???

I've been praying about direction on this and still waiting on God to tell me which direction to go...its hard to be patient and wait, but hopefully he will answer my prayer and give me a green light for a direction to pursue....I will continue to be faithful and gather as much information as possible about both paths so I'm ready to hit the ground running once I get the green light from God.

Best of luck to you in making the decision. My sister's in sports management, and I've heard from her how tough it can be as a female.

I'm 51. My life has not turned out exactly how I planned it, but it doesn't matter because I like the life I have. Just keep moving forward even if some things don't work out. Other good things will take its place and gradually surprise you. Blessings.
