When I was a stay-at-home mom my husband and I slashed our household budget. We dropped the expensive vacations (sob!) and ate less frequently at restaurants. The biggest cumulative loss was that my professional development fees were eliminated.

I love learning and didn’t want to stagnate. I wasn’t sure when I was going to return to work, but I knew I wasn’t going to stay at home forever. I challenged myself to uncover free professional development and learning opportunities.
