If you’re parenting a kid who’s not yet in kindergarten, you’re wondering how in the world you ended up reading an article written by a writer who gets kids through college debt-free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you why this blog is the best place for you to be right now.
On the day your baby starts kindergarten, your family is likely to experience an exhilarating financial windfall.
Daycare expenses may suddenly plummet.
A former stay-at-home parent might start working full-time or part-time.
The boost in your income in either of these scenarios is likely to be sudden and remarkable.
During the year before your baby starts kindergarten, sit down and plan how to invest this windfall.
Using the resources and support of someone like Dave Ramsey, start aggressively paying off your own student loan and
household debt, and then once you’ve done that — visit a Certified Financial Planner and start planning retirement contributions and bit-by-bit college savings.
You’ll build wealth, you’ll build financial freedom, and you’ll build a secure financial future for both yourself and your child.
To get even more ideas on setting your little ones up for debt-free college and career, see chapter 3 of this book:
