This Strategy Equips You to Slash Future College Costs

For Parents of Students Ages 12–18

If you can, just skip reading the content below and instead—listen to me delivering it on audio. Listen while you’re driving or getting ready in the morning, here:

If you can’t do audio right now, read on.

Today I’m going to teach you a little-known, really clever debt-free college strategy that’ll take you less than a couple of hours to implement—and all by itself, it can save you thousands and thousands on college costs.

One 18-year-old used this strategy even though he was pretty sure it couldn’t possibly work for him, and he was shocked to walk away with $30,000 extra in free money to help pay his college bills.

You’ll need this strategy in your back pocket whether you’re currently parenting elementary schoolers, middle schoolers, or high schoolers.

We’re Overcoming ALL the Blocks and Obstacles

Lately, I’ve really been doubling down on figuring out exactly which blocks and obstacles are keeping parents from moving confidently toward debt-free college for their kids.

debt-free college

From talking to parents when I speak, I know that they want debt-free college strategy that is:

  1. Clear, easy to digest, and quick
  2. Complete
  3. Does not require much work from parents
  4. Safest and best for the child, regardless of where she goes in life
  5. Inspiring and reassuring—makes you feel good
  6. Tailored to kids’ ages and individual family needs—so parents don’t have to read or listen to anything they don’t need right now.

This last one is especially important.

Parents want clear, quick, specific instruction that applies to where their kids are right now.

No parent wants to spend time reading or listening to directions they’re not going to need for a year.

Because of this, I’ve taken two steps that are game changers for busy parents.

First—I organized my book of debt-free college instructions so that parents only read one chapter every three months or so—and every chapter is directed straight at a kid’s current month and year in school.

Then I created a fast-paced, 10-minute video training that explains how to use the book in the fastest, most efficient way.

Boom. Tailored to be exactly what you need, right now.

Second—because I know that parents are having individual questions they want answered—in mid-March of 2020 I’ll be opening the doors to a membership—where parents will have an open door to be with me in person, online, in a group setting, 10–15 times per year.

Doors to this membership will open for just 5 days in mid-March 2020.

You can find out more about this membership (and learn about the deep, altogether understandable parent needs that are inspiring me to create it) here.

Opportunity to join will only be extended to readers of my free weekly email newsletter.

You (and your friends) can subscribe now at bit.ly/helpfulnewsletter.

Parents, we need to talk about the blocks and obstacles you’re facing more in depth.

The stakes are high for your kids. College debt is a big deal.

If we, together, can overcome your blocks and obstacles and lay necessary, wise debt-free college groundwork early on, you can save the kids you love decades of unhappiness and struggle.

Even if you can’t save a penny, even if you’re not a candidate for government financial aid, even if your kids don’t get a single scholarship.

I want to hear more about the obstacles you’re encountering as you work toward this very important goal.

I Need Your Input as I Finalize My TRIBE Membership!

To get straight to the description of my TRIBE Membership, zoom to the red writing below. membershipI’m stunned and amazed at the great response I’ve gotten to the short, succinct video trainings I sent out last week.

Specialized help—based on the age of your kid—with no video longer than 10 minutes! Parents are loving having fast, inspiring grade specific training that only gives them info they need right now.

The stories of exciting success are flowing in—along with gratitude that I just made the whole process even easier.

At the same time, this has opened up wellsprings of raw emotion in some parents.

Some of what I’m hearing sounds like this:

1. “I want to get my kids through college debt-free and set up for real jobs after college—but I don’t have time to read very much.

Please just give me the least amount to read possible.”

2. “I seriously don’t have time to do very much! Please give me just the bare bones that I need right now.”

3. “When I can’t do much, please support me and tell me, ‘That’s OK! This is still going to work out!'”
