Untapped Potential

Blonde rascal and I were studying his spelling words Wednesday night. One of his words was master. Often times while studying we put the words into sentences. Blonde rascal said..."Mom has her Master's Degree". (I am not real sure where he even heard of such a thing?)

To which I replied...

Mom: "No I just have my Bachelor's Degree, which is sadly not as impressive."

BR: "In what?"

Mom: "Communication Studies"

BR: "What do you do with that? (same thing I am sure my parents thought)

Mom: "Well it is not a specialized degree....it is very generalized, so I could do lots of things!" (read I'll never get paid the big bucks)

BR: "Like be a moto cross racer?"

Mom: "No doubt!"

BR: "Or a Monster Jam driver! You would love to drive a monster truck!"

Mom: "You know I would SO love that!"

BR: "Or you could just keep on being a bookkeeper for Dad's car lot"

Oh yawn! That is so sad. I had so many exciting career options at my fingertips and I end up with bookkeeper.

I laughed and hugged him and told him the only job I ever wanted was being his Mom. Then I showered him with kisses as he freaked out and tried to get away from me.

However, it is comforting to know that should something ever happen to hubs and I need to support the family...there is always that Monster Jam option.

Nice post! I do have a master's and my son says he's going to get a phd just to be smarter than me.

Oh that sounds like it would be a fun job. My kids (21 & 17 ) wanted to know what I wanted to be when they were little. To this day I still tell them I don't know I haven't grown up yet.

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a money that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.

I could soooo see you being a Monster Jam driver, not sure what Monster Jam is, but I have a picture in my mind of you in a big truck driving OVER stuff. Too cool!! Never forget that you are working at a business YOU own. That is better than a bookkeeper. Your degree has paid off for you!! I think I found a major Taylor..........

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
