Making College Possible

As a college professor, I BELIEVE in the value of college and the power of education to transform lives. That being said, the cost of college is wild. I'm so grateful for Brad's work. It is such a helpful resources for parents (and students). I'm so grateful we connected. -Danielle McGeough, Phd and host of the Plan Goal Plan podcast.

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!
