Invaluable Response

An invaluable resource for any parent strategizing their child’s long term education. High school students should be listening too!

Great!

Brad has a TON of knowledge on helping families financially plan for college. He was a guest speaker for our family law firm to help co-parents work strategically on their financial plan, and important considerations for divided households. Fantastic!

Interesting Topics and Guests

Brad gets into the guts of each topic with his guests. He’s not afraid to ask hard questions in an effort to explore and solve problems with his guests. I highly recommend this podcast if you care about finances, family, and planning for college.
