Helpful tips

Listening to Vanessa’s podcasts helps answer questions that I’ve been thinking about in the back of my mind but never thought to research. Her latest podcast regarding preparing our children for college is truly insightful! Trying to navigate thru the process once you’re in the middle of high school is really too late. I’ve learned some great tips now that my children are just starting high school and middle school. Thank you!!!!
