Late Stage College Planning




  • Is your student now a junior or senior and ready to get serious about picking the ‘perfect college’?
  • Have you started to review the FAFSA and wondered what it’s all about?
  • Is your student already attending college but you’re wondering if more could be done to help? Maybe more financial aid, or perhaps your student is thinking of switching majors or schools?

Why College Planning is Important at This Time.


  • Are you getting overwhelmed by how many decisions and choices your student has in regards to picking the right college?
  • Did you know that the average student is now attending college for 5.5 years?
  • Did you know that picking the right college can save you and your student’s thousands of dollars?
  • Did you know that there are schools that have scholarship money that never gets awarded?

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.
