How To Balance Penn Foster Studies With Work And / Or Family Demands

Thousands of people have struggled for many years trying to balance their studies, their workloads and living by family demands. Now that I have learned how to balance my Penn Foster studies, work, and my family this has become very simple for me. I’ am a 38 year old man who is married with one child. I've been a Sales and Marketing for eight yeas and I currently work at Sovereign Bank. Being a barker is good but it isn't growing the way that I thought it would. So I had to make some changes in my life in order to live in better comfort. I go by a daily schedule to help me balance work, family, and school. Many people do not have the time to go to a classroom when you have a job and a family to spend time with. It can be very challenging when you have to work and take care of your family while you try to go to school. Penn Foster is a good decision that I made when deciding which school to attend because it is online and the classes are self pace. The field that I have chosen is Marketing. The reason why I chose this field is because the job availability is high and the pay is good also. I feel that in this field I will be able to take care of my family a whole lot better and make everything easier for me and my family. I also have always liked Selling and working with customer. I feel that the decision I have made is the right one. My family and friends help me maintain a positive attitude when I get discourage or overwhelmed. I have learned to prioritize things in my life and that helps me achieve my goals. I have learned to set limits and I also learned how to say no sometimes. Their many times that I want to do other things, but I have homework to do or my family may need me to be at home and that comes first. I learn to set both short term and long term goals, and I have also learned to give myself rewards to keep focus
