My Full Book For Parents Is Available RIGHT HERE

Discounted Copies of LAUNCH Available Through Kickstarter.com Through March 17th

A long time ago, you had a book that guided you through infant, baby, and toddler care.  You referred to that book over and over again during your child’s first three years of life.

What you need now is a book you can buy when your child is 13 — a book that will guide you through getting your kids through college debt free and into jobs they love afterward.

LAUNCH:  How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward

Is that book. It makes a perfect gift.  To learn more about the book and to quickly get your discounted copy, click here now.

A Personal Note From Jeannie:

When you pre-order this book through my book page on kickstarter.com by March 17th, you’ll be helping me to pay for the last few editorial, design, and print costs I have left to cover before this book can be officially released into bookstores.  To reward you for helping me, I’ll send you a discounted copy of the book (or one of 12 other exciting rewards you’ll see when you click on the link above).

My kickstarter.com page includes an inspiring video that takes just 2-3 minutes to watch.  If you’ve seen the video already, just scroll down beneath the video at the link above and you’ll see additional helpful printed info from me.  (If you’re on a mobile device, click “Campaign” to see this additional info.)

The most important thing to me is that when you’re looking at my kickstarter page at the link above, you click the green button that says “BACK THIS PROJECT.”  When you do, you’ll instantly see the full list of the 13 rewards I’m offering to the people who are helping me.  One of those rewards is a book you can buy for yourself, and another of those rewards is a pack of books you can buy for future gift-giving.

Hurry though; this offer goes away forever on March 17th!

Just click the photo below and you’ll be right where you need to be:

The “What To Do When” Lists On My Website Are Going Away on February 10th, 2016!

During this past year a huge number of parents have downloaded and read the “What To Do When” lists I’ve had posted on this website.

The feedback I’ve gotten on these resources has been amazing:

“Jeannie, I so love these lists, because they give me just exactly the information I need at any one time — just what I need in the moment and nothing more!”

“Hey Jeannie — I feel so inspired and motivated by your “What to do in January of 10th Grade” list, I’m now thinking about going back to college myself!  Ha ha!!”

I’ve loved hearing these comments, and I’ve absolutely loved having a way I could guide parents in a step-by-step manner outside of just my live events.

What To Do When- lists going away

Today I’m announcing that as 5:00 p.m. CST on February 10, 2016, these “What To Do When” lists are going away.  

The reason is an exciting one!  These lists are being completely updated, combined with a great deal of other necessary information,  and moved into a print book you can hold in your hands.  To learn more about the book and to pre-order your discounted copy, click here now.

Having these lists as part of a print book is very exciting!

You’ll never again have to download my files, and then later wonder where you put them on y0ur hard drive.  You’ll never again have to print out my instructions, and then try to remember where you put all those loose sheets of paper.

Instead, you’ll now be able to purchase a book by me that has everything you need — all in one place.

A long time ago, you had a book that guided you through infant, baby, and toddler care. You referred to that book over and over again during your child’s first three years of life.

Now you’ll be able to buy a book by me when your child is 13 (or as soon as you can after that), read through it bit by bit during the teenage years, and have it guide you step-by-step through getting your kids through college debt free and into jobs they love afterward. Every few months you’ll open this book and think: “If I get just one good idea out of this book today, it’ll be worth it!”

And the thing I really love about this print book? It’s shareable.

The more support you have from you friends and other loved ones on this journey to debt free college, the more successful you and your child are going to be. I know that so far it’s been sort of difficult to tell your friends: “Go download those to-do lists from Jeannie Burlowski’s website!” But it’s very easy to tell friends: “Go get your copy of Jeannie Burlowski’s book!” or better yet: “Here; I bought both of you copies of Jeannie Burlowski’s book as gifts!”

LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward

Makes a perfect gift — for yourself, or for others. To learn more about the book and to get your discounted copy, click here now.  (Note that this offer is only available through March 17th, 2016.)

If you want to download any of my “What to Do When”  lists as keepsakes (or to tide you over until my book arrives in the mail), go to JeannieBurlowski.com and download all the to-do lists you’d like by February 10, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. CST.

5 Surprising Tips For Anyone Wondering about Commercial SAT/ACT Coaching

Recently I got such a great question from a mom — I’m hoping many parents will benefit from hearing why I told her: “No, I don’t.”

Jeannie, I was wondering if you do coaching for students looking to study for the ACT/SAT tests?  I have a daughter who is wanting to take the PSAT and the ACT this year and her high school counselor told us to invest in a good testing coach.  I honestly have no idea where to find one, but thought of you because of the work you have already been doing in this area.  Do you provide tutoring services to students who want to do well on standardized tests?

My answer to her is below.

Your Kid Actually CAN Get Through College Debt Free

LAUNCH day

I’m always most able to inspire people when I talk to them face-to-face.

The video above gives me the chance to do that, for you, right now.

Click the play button above now; watch for just two minutes.

And let this excited, hopeful feeling wash over you:  Kids at all income levels actually can get through college debt free.

P.S.  I have exciting news:  Soon you’ll be able to hold and read my book LAUNCH:  How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward.  People are very excited about this book because when President Obama made his sweeping changes to the U.S. financial aid system on September 13, 2015, every other book on this subject was instantly out of date.  This book will be the first to contain comprehensive strategies for navigating President Obama’s changes.

If you’re curious to learn even more about this, watch the video and then read the printed information underneath the word “Campaign.”

I’m hoping that 1,000 of my readers will SHARE the link to this video on social media five different times between now and March 18, 2016.  Could you be one of the 1,000 people that does that for me?  Here’s the link to share: http://bit.ly/JeannieBurlowski

The response to that announcement was astounding.  I asked for help with a survey so I could be sure I was answering everyone’s biggest questions clearly and specifically in this book, and 60 times more readers than I ever expected responded and helped me out.  (You can see the survey results here.)

One dad emailed me this on January 15th:

“Jeannie, Your words of wisdom for kids getting through college debt free have been INCREDIBLE.  THANK YOU for making this your passion and I hope that you are able to make a prosperous business out of sharing this information. Raise your rates or do anything to keep the business viable and keep on your mission. PLEASE !!”

I kind of had to laugh at that, but it’s good to know he’s serious about this. : -)

TWO BIG QUESTIONS I’m Getting From Parents! (Hint: The Answer to the First One is Not “AP!”)

happygradgirl2

Wow.  Wow!  The best way I can describe how I feel right now is – overwhelmed with gratitude.

Just a ten days ago, on January 4th, 2016, I announced that my book LAUNCH:  How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward is wrapping up and is going to be available for pre-purchase this month.

(If you missed the cool story on why this book’s launch date was moved into 2016 and how President Obama was involved in that, you can read it here.)

Today I want to answer two important questions parents asked me in the days following that post.

SURVEY RESULTS ARE IN! Here are the Top Five Questions Parents Asked Me Last Week

On January 4th, 2016 I announced exciting news about my upcoming book LAUNCH:  How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward.

If you missed that exciting post, you can read it here.

A Big Announcement and a Favor

Today I have a big announcement to make!  And a quick favor to ask.

bookinbookstore

First, an exciting update 

For the last year, I’ve been on a beeline to having my book LAUNCH:  How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward out in December of 2015.

This has been incredibly exciting to me.  It’s taken me almost three years of work!  I’ve packaged up every viable debt free college strategy into one little package any parent can benefit from — even if they make far too much money to qualify for any government financial aid.

The manuscript was finished earlier in 2015 and everything was set to wrap up exactly on time.

But then something wonderful happened.

At exactly the perfect time for me, President Obama suddenly, on September 13, 2015, made two sweeping, landmark decisions that changed the way every student and every family will apply for financial aid for college for years to come.  Certain parts of LAUNCH do talk about maximizing financial aid, of course, so this meant that I suddenly had a lot of changes to make to my manuscript.

I wasn’t upset though!  This was the best thing that could have possibly happened to me as an author.  Why?
