Take The Course

"But wait! I don't think I need this course because..."

"I already have a 529 plan. What will I gain from this course?"

I’ll help you take your 529 plan to the next level. Many people can greatly improve their tax savings by implementing my intermediate and advanced 529 strategies.

"I'm not a financial person. I don't understand taxes or financial planning."

If you feel you’re not a “financial person,” you’re not alone. However, you still need to plan and pay for college. Realistically, you have three choices:

  1. 1. You can skip 529s, skip the course, and miss out on the benefits. But you’ll end up paying more for college.
  2. 2. You can buckle down and figure this out yourself.
  3. 3. You can outsource college planning it to a friend, relative or professional.

This course will show you what you need to know, so you can decide if it's something you can handle yourself or you might need a little help.

Get Started

"I already have a financial planner or CPA"

College planning requires specialized expertise. Unfortunately, many CPAs, accountants and financial advisors are not well-versed in college planning. Their advice is often not accurate, not useful, or flat out wrong.

This course goes well beyond what 90% of advisors are currently doing for their clients. It also includes a section on working with professionals, to help you make sure there’s a good fit for your needs and you’re getting the best possible advice.

"I won't have time to do this."

Most parents are busy. This course is designed to save you time by getting you up and running fast, with short and manageable videos. You can spread the lessons over a few weeks or get it all done in a day. The more you wait, planning for college gets more stressful. This is your chance to tackle it in the easiest and most convenient way.

"My kids are already in high school, it's too late to start"

It’s never too late to start. Once you have teenagers, it’s time to buckle down and focus on college. This course is designed specifically for parents of high school students. My strategies show you how to save for college and save taxes at the same time, putting you on the fast track to more savings. It’s a chance to put your children on a path to a better future.
