Three and a half years ago, I made the decision to earn a PhD. After spending 90% of my professional career (post-Bachelor’s degree) working in higher education, it seemed a logical step.
It has been hard work. One class at a time. Work. Family. Soccer. More work.
There is a reason that only 3% of the U.S. population attain a PhD.
Because it is hard work.
My dissertation defense is in 100 days.
