The video you see below is me, live in my studio, recording Episode 1 of my Launch Your Teens Podcast. Share this video with parents you’re hoping to attract to your event, and they’ll tell their kids, “We have got to get Jeannie Burlowski’s deeper content.

I travel all over the United States for speaking. I love meeting your people, and I love answering individual questions for them after I speak.

In many cases, event planners pay me zero speaking fees.

Parents willingly pay extra to hear me, so no matter what kind of event you’re planning, you will likely make money by having me in your lineup.

If you’re putting on a free event, you can have a financial services company sponsor my session(s) at your location—and they pay all my speaking fees. Just ask me how we do this.

This is how parents and students feel. How do school principals and event organizers feel about my speaking?

Here’s what one high school principal wrote to me after she heard me present How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free—WITHOUT SCHOLARSHIPS! in her high school auditorium:

“Jeannie, I was able to watch your presentation through the 4th step. I was called away to an emergency the rest of the evening. This was very upsetting because I was so into it. Ugh!  Anyway, it was extremely informative and of so much value! I’m excited to see your book. Thanks again for being here for our parents and students. I thought it was an excellent showing!!!”

—Amber Schultz, Assistant Principal, Blaine High School, Andover, MN 

Here’s what a large private school director of enrollment wrote when approached by someone looking for a top-notch speaker:

“Jeannie Burlowski is a fantastic speaker. We have invited her to speak a total of 3 times here at Minnehaha Academy, and we have plans to have her back next year. Our current families and community members have given her outstanding response regarding her speaking style, content, additional resources, and specialty classes she teaches. She is engaging for middle school and high school students and parents. Her passion to help others succeed in life is evident and inspiring. I can’t say enough great things about Jeannie Burlowski. I would highly recommend her to any organization that wants their families to feel empowered and students to feel confident as they prepare for college and career.”

—Michelle Ulland, Director of Admission and Enrollment, Minnehaha Academy, Minneapolis, MN
