According to Student Loan Hero, the average student debt for 2017 graduates is close to $40,000. And our nation’s total student debt is now hovering around $1.5 TRILLION!

I want to do everything in my power to protect my kids from this colossal disaster. 

To help calm my nerves, I’ve invited Pam Andrews on the show today. We’re gonna chat about how she helped her son earn $700,000 in college scholarships. Pam’s son can now attend college and graduate completely debt free … and then some. 

What are we covering today?

Pam and I chat about:

  • How she helped her son earn $700,000 in scholarships
  • Why experiences and community work is so important to the process
  • What other parents can do to help their kids earn big money too

Pam’s professional experience as a Scholarship Strategist and her personal experience as a Mom will help us all to prepare our children for the monetary challenge that lays ahead. Student debt freedom CAN be a reality for our children.

Money Master of the Week

Drew from Ohio has started a spend, save and give jar system for his young son!

Drew’s Son Selling Warm Cider on a Cold Ohio Day

Drew is helping his son to learn how to earn money and then how to properly use it to have fun, to give and to plan for the future. 

Evidently, his son made a good profit because he was serving warm cider on a cold day. Awesome idea! It’s like selling an umbrella on a rainy day.

Drew let me know that there wasn’t a definitive plan for the profits just yet, but his son would more than likely be saving up his “give money” to adopt a Turkey during Thanksgiving. As a vegan family, this is an important cause they can all get behind.
