For many families, the high cost of higher education is a daunting proposition. Parents lie awake at night trying to figure out how to afford sending 1, 2, 3 or more children to college and still have enough of their hard earned money to be able to retire. Some families have children attending college next year and others have 12 years to plan; but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs are the same. The College Funding Coach® is here to help families figure out HOW to pay for it!

Through a nationally renowned educational workshop, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College you will learn:

  • Effective ways to simultaneously save AND pay for college
  • Unique strategies to pay for multiple children attending college at the same time
  • An insider’s view of the college admissions process
  • How to recapture out of pocket college costs
  • Avoid jeopardizing your retirement nest egg
  • And much, much more!
