I am trying to figure out a way to pay for grooming school since I am now laid off. I really do not want to do an online program I need hands on. I have a school 30-45 mins from me but they are costly. They are good but $$. if I am lucky enough to get a Pell grant I guess they do not fall in that guide line. I want to open my own at home shop so if I go through SCORE and get me business financed can they include education cost in start up? I have most of my business plan done just need to do the financial side of it. Or any other ideas. I am 47 and this is my dream job so its like now or never. My other thought is my oldest daughter has a love for animals and no real advance education (she 24) if I can get certified then maybe I can guide her in this direction if its what she really wants and it works out for me. I cant work for min wage to go work in a salon to start learning this field. Any help or ideas are greatly welcomed. I live in NC and am considering looking at some of the schools in FL and MI since I have family in both states but that would be a long time to be away from my hubby and kids.
For those of you younger and this is your dream save save save so you can persue your dream.
