Some parents have children going to college next year; others have 12 years to plan. Shannon Forest is hosting a parent workshop called “Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College!” This seminar is for ALL FAMILIES regardless of your child’s age! The cost of a college education is higher than ever. How will you afford this expense? What if your children attend elite or out-of-state schools? What if they don’t graduate in four years? The costs can be monumental. This workshop will teach you HOW to send your children to the college of their dreams without bankrupting your retirement nest egg. You’ll discover strategies that may enable you to qualify for financial aid, sources for scholarships, and strategies for maximizing your wealth and minimizing your tax exposure, giving you greater cash flow for funding a college education. Please join us on March 13, 2018, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This is information you can’t afford to miss!
