As a mother, we always seem to put our own needs last. We tend to put our children first, leaving us in the backseat. But, there comes a time when you need to ride shotgun again. You need to start to consider what you need and want to be happy and succeed. If you’re not happy, then you can’t expect to be a good parent. That’s just the way it works.

One of the main areas mothers tend to want to explore is education for themselves. Whether you never had a chance to get your degree or want to further your education, finding the right program isn’t always easy. We all can’t quit our day jobs to go back to school full-time. With the demands of work and family and life in general, this is just not an option. Just like any MacGyver Mom would do, you search high and low for all the tools to create a plan that works for you and will get you to your goal.

That’s where Capella University’s FlexPath program comes in. It was made for the MacGyver Mom. FlexPath makes that previously unrealistic degree, a reality. FlexPath is a revolutionary new way to earn your degree. Just like you have may have one child who learns faster than another, Capella knows the same is true for adults. That’s why you can go at your own pace. You can breeze through material you may know while spending more time on things you need to learn more about. That’s the great thing about FlexPath. Capella also helps to make the program affordable. You have no limit to the number of courses you can complete for one flat fee, each 12 week session.  If you’re a money saving momma like many of us, you know you can’t get much better than that.

Another benefit is the ability to set your own deadlines to work around your own schedule. You can also put your MacGyver Mom skills to use because you can be as resourceful as you want when it comes to source materials. You can choose the recommended books or you can do what any Mom does, find what works best for you and use outside source material.

Finding what works best for your situation is just what Tarishia** did. Just like many of us moms, she constantly put her kids’ and family’s needs before her own. She made sure her two children had what they needed before she even thought about what she needed and wanted. Then in 2013, she decided it was finally time to go back to school. She knew an online program was the way to go for her, and after talking to the staff at Capella, she quickly realized FlexPath was what could make going back to school possible. As a working mother with a family, she was able to reach the finish line. In 2015, she graduated with her degree and is now ready to be more marketable in a competitive job market.   Tarishia says, “whether I choose to stay in my current position or work for private sector, I now have my degree, and it’s needed in the field.” Tarishia is a Transportation Engineer for the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation.

If Tarishia’s story sounds like yours, then check out the free FlexPath guide. Here you’ll get all the details and read about more success stories from parents who were finally able to achieve their degree because of FlexPath.  FlexPath is currently available for select bachelor’s, master’s and MBA programs in Business, IT, Nursing, and Psychology.

As a MacGyver Mom, you’re always looking for an innovative way to get from point A to point B. If you’re like Tarishia and are always asking yourself, “How can I put myself in the front for a change?” FlexPath from Capella is the answer.

*Program length and cost depends on the number of courses completed per 12-week session and the number of sessions at $2,400. Data based on MBA FlexPath graduates through June 2016.
