    I finally finished my degree this morning!

    What's next guys? Still have some education money left....

    Anyone out there go for a B.S. degree while running business?--if so, was it beneficial to you more than the A.A.S. would be? Business is good (actually hurts business when I'm in school), so I was thinking just to spend the rest in more certifications...???

    Open ears to advice

    Consider this. AA/AS degrees are designed to prepare you for a bachelor program. While they will give you a half step up over someone without the degree, you are only half way there.

    Certifications are like frosting without the cake. If you want some cake, get a BS degree or better.
