Welcome to the website
for families who need to make college more affordable and more valuable - with as little stress as possible.
The information on this site has been acquired from spending over ten thousand hours working one on one with students and
their families. Staying independent has let me work with students of many ages and multiple school systems without having
to consider politics or greed. Because my work off the internet already keeps me very busy and is a boatload of fun,
I have created this site with some general information to enable parents, other caregivers and mature teens help themselves
and those they care about. Please be aware there are no guarantees. Thank you ahead of time for tolerating a few
imperfections and my wacky sense of humor.
The world changed. There is a new reality.
Adults who can't protect themselves and their families from the callous choices of other people have some big challenges.
The good news is if you learn the right skills, you can make yourself a great life and have a lot of fun doing it, too.
With that in mind, here are a couple questions to ask yourself.
How will you tell which
colleges (or other entities) actually care about you and which will just take your money even if it is not appropriate?
How will you tell which college ratings organizations know what they are talking about and which just do it because that is
what makes them money? (How will you know which people's opinions actually have any credibility?)
