In March of 2018 I was interviewed by Andy Earle, a Loyola Marymount University researcher who focuses on parent-teen communication and teen thriving and flourishing.
I’ve been interviewed many times since my book LAUNCH came out in 2017, but this interview is by far the best. It’s the best produced, the most in-depth, the most inspiring, and the most informative.

You’ll feel a growing sense of hope for the teens and 20somethings you love.
I love what Andy Earle says about the debt-free college strategies I provide in LAUNCH.
After reading LAUNCH cover to cover, Andy says:
“LAUNCH has become one of the most well-respected books on this subject (it’s the go-to reference book for financial planners and college consultants) because Jeannie isn’t just about doing college cheap, she’s about doing it debt-free and so effectively that it results in a great, satisfying career after college is over.”
“During her 23 years working as an academic strategist, Jeannie’s uncovered some extremely creative strategies for bringing the cost of REAL, high quality, high value college down, down, down, down…down to such a bargain basement level that even ordinary families can have it 100% paid for by two to four years after the kid graduates from high school.”

Are you parenting a teen or 20something who’s struggling?
If you are, be sure to look at the article I wrote on launch anxiety. Pay special attention to the section where I strongly suggest that all teens take career assessments as early as 10th grade. Why so early? Because getting an exciting sense of possible career goal early on heads off launch anxiety. Plus—it saves parents thousands and thousands of dollars on college costs, because teens who’ve completed quality career assessment don’t waste time in ill-fitting college classes or majors that aren’t going to lead anywhere.
I don’t administer these career assessments myself (my consulting work is mainly for medical school applicants), but I provide complete instruction on where to find these assessments and how to use the results on pages 133–151 of my book:

Read just one chapter of LAUNCH every 1–3 months while your child’s in middle school and high school, and you’ll know every viable strategy for debt-free college at exactly the right time to implement it.
And if your child’s already well past middle school? That’s OK; you can run to catch up. But the process of getting your kids through college debt-free goes more smoothly the earlier you start it—especially if you’re not planning to save up any money to pay for college.
