I would like a new career and need some advice.

I have been working with children for the past 12 years and while I love it, I am burned out. I would like a new career but don't know what I want. I was hoping you could give me some suggestions. I love to work with people, but there are times I like to have some quiet time to get work done. I like doing desk/computer work but I also like to get up and go do things as well. I have my associate's degree and I am looking into getting my Bachelor's but I don't know what I what to do with my life! Any advice?

  • Discovery Toys. You can work as much or as little as you want. You know what children need developmentally and what can help them achieve these goals. You can also go to school while you still work your Discovery Toys business. Sounds like educational toys is a wonderful fit for you.

    Take Care,
