I had previously posted this on another board, sorry mods! :

I am currently in school to major in Advertising, but man.... I just really don't feel like it's the right path for me. I'm way too mellow to really enjoy that kind of work! lol.
So, I was thinking more about how I could tie things that I like into a future career. I was thinking about:
1. Lactation specialist
2. Midwife
3. Massage Therapist???? (I've been told I'm really good at it... but I don't really want to touch hairy backs. )

Either way.. I need to find something I love really fast because my true love is volunteering.... but that won't pay the bills.

Just a thought about the massage and hairy backs.... you could just specialize your services to be for expectant mamas or something like that.

Erika, mama to three beautiful kids (plus one gestating), and wife to one fantastic man.

Yeah, I would really like to focus on pregnant women and infant massage. Hope I didn't offend anyone with the hairy backs! :

Midwives, where did you go to school?

I'm interested in an online program because I haven't found a school in Texas yet. Anyone have any recommendations?
