Describe the one who got away : Postaday topic #37

Topic: describe the one who got away. Here is my career that got away (at least for now). I was a young go-getter at a computer company…getting promoted frequently and learning a lot. I decided to finish my MBA and went at it full time and then some…finished my MBA in 1 year (normally a 2 year program). Got married. Went to work for another computer company. Had  a child and decided to stay home to raise the child. Ended up staying home a lot more years than I originally planned. Tried to pick the career back up but by then it had been a couple of decades. Companies wanted younger fresher talent that had not been out for awhile. Switched to tutoring which is lovely and rewarding.

On days when the bills come in I wonder what if? What if I had remained a hotshot businesswoman….where would we be at financially? I realize that i can find a way to get back in with the hotshots…but i haven’t figured out that path yet…
