A crossroads - do I need a degree?
Good Morning! Apologies if this is long. But I need some outside opinions. Short version of my journey, started out in IT (no degree, have few certifications), merged in to Marketing/Graphic Design (what I love doing, no degree, online trainings, self taught, certs., etc only). I am 39 with a family, very active daughter. So I have not forced myself to finish a degree. My question is, do I "need" a degree to get opportunities whether on my own freelance or with a company? Or is staying up with current trainings, etc. good? I appreciate any advice, I am definitely at a crossroads and feeling very defeated.
