Personalize Your Path to Success – Make Getting an Education Work For You

This post is sponsored by Capella University; however, all opinions are our own.

There are certainly some similarities among us on the team at Like A Boss Girls. We are women who want to do and make good. We want to inspire. We want to be consistently evolving.

Oh and we want to be pretty badass business women while we do it.

Some of us are moms, some of us aren’t. Some of us are 20-somethings, some of us are Gen X. Some of us live in the city, and some of us live in the the suburbs and middle of America. Some of us are entrepreneurs, some of us work multiple jobs, some of are part of big company teams, some of us are freelancers, some of us are consultants. Some of us have an MBA, some of us don’t, and some of us still want to earn our MBA.

But none of us had a similar path to where we are and we’re still writing our own rules. Kind of like real life, huh?

YOU are the writer of your story, YOU get to keep evolving, and YOU get to choose what’s important to you as both a woman and business woman.


And if one of your priorities is earning your MBA or continuing your education but you’re feeling “The timing is off” or “I need to wait until my kids are older” but you long for this education deeply, then looking into Capella University’s online learning format called FlexPath may be the next step you take.

FlexPath can help you earn your bachelor’s or masters’s degree while allowing you to set your own coursework deadlines.  With this self-paced option, you are in control of your education.

Tarishia is a recent graduate with her Bachelor’s in Business Administration. While being a transportation engineer for the state of Connecticut, an ordained minister AND as a mom of two college graduates of her own, Tarishia made earning her degree a priority and found her way forward with FlexPath.

We love how she gets real about earning her business degree while also being a boss in other areas of her life.

Work, ministry, family, social life and friends; no, it was not easy to balance. But it was important to me. I wanted it bad because I deserved it. When I looked at it that way it became easier to balance, and the balance is much easier with FlexPath because you have the option to wrap your education around your lifestyle.

Another key benefit Tarishia experienced with FlexPath was the affordability. You can complete as many courses as you are able each 12-week session, taking up to 2 courses at a time, for one flat tuition rate. For example, you can earn your MBA in just 9 months for under $7,500 with FlexPath.**

Sound like something you want to learn more about? Here’s a free FlexPath guide for all the details and more success stories from parents who were finally able to achieve their degree because of FlexPath.
