John Barada, ChFC, RFC, CCPS


John Barada III is the President and Managing Member of CPC LLC. As a long time financial industry veteran, John routinely worked with families. Over the last ten years, John found himself working more and more frequently with parents that were facing two challenges: sending kids to college and planning for retirement. Many parents are concerned that funding their children’s college will impact their future retirement date.

As a Certified College Planning Consultant, and a Financial Advisor, John and his team guides parents and students through FAFSA, college profiles and admissions requirements. All of which take into consideration John’s extensive knowledge of finances, investments and insurance accounts and how to properly use them.

Aid availability differs by institution, financial need and student qualifications. Combing through each college and finding this information can be extremely taxing on the family. John has attained several tools to allow each family the ability to sort through the most prudent information quickly.

John has a family of his own and has already struggled through many of the issues this generation is facing. He worked through the college consortium with his two sons, thus giving him personal knowledge of the frustration and questions that occur. And now he is working with his grandchildren!

College Planning Consultants is John’s way of taking that frustration away from families and ensuring that our next generation doesn’t have to worry about missing out because of finances. From attending their #1 college choice to the parents still affording a decent and well-subsidized retirement. We work toward making both possible.

Your Wealth Must Reside Somewhere!

Your wealth must reside somewhere! It must have a permanent place of residence. You must own, control, and have use your money, or you haven’t built any wealth, you just stashed some money away. About 90 % of Americans keep their wealth in either taxable, unavailable, and/or volatile residences that limit what you can do with their money. If what you thought was true about your money, wasn’t true about your money, when would you want to know? I first heard this question from Don Blanton, a fine southern gentleman with a distinct southern Georgia drawl, and I’ve been unable to “unhear” it, since.
