My PMP certification is due to expire within the next three months. I'm currently trying to prioritize a side business that will take considerable time and effort to build up. If I go through a project management class now to build up points needed to keep the PMP, that would distract me and slow me down from building up my side-income. It is crucial that I pursue the entrepreneurship path as quickly as possible over the next few months.
Also, my career is geared more towards analytics and some aspects of data science. I didn't fully utilize my PMP certification over the last three years and, in the long run, I would much rather become a successful entrepreneur (riskier, I know) than a project manager. Whether I had a PMP certification or not, I would still have the same knowledge I needed to acquire in order to pass the exam for it. Also, I have another certification that's geared more towards analytics and data science that I could always point to if needed.
Based on that information, would it be wise to let my PMP certification expire?
