Should I start a new business or go back and finish my degree?

I am 32, divorced and have 2 children(joint physical custody). I had a janitorial business when married, but closed it down and went back into my previous profession to fit my new lifestyle. My kids are turning 11 and 10 and I am worried about their education. My current profession is auto sales. I had sold cars for 3 years prior to opening my business, and have been selling again now for 3 years now. I make enough to comfortably live on, but it is a not a career that offers great security. Part of me wants to go back to school and finish my degree and teach (would take 3-4 years to finish while working). I also think about starting another business part-time in sales consulting. My kids are getter closer to college age, and I worry that finshing my degree would cost impact their ability to go to school. I was never financially able to finish my degree and it's important to me that they do. Maybe I should stick it out at my job until they are through? What would you?
