She and her company are on a mission to make saving for college easy with the magical 529 account.
Abby and I met a dinner in Dallas in October. Her enthusiasm for combating the $1.4 trillion student loan crisis in our country was inspiring. I had to bring her on the show so you all could be inspired too.
Evidently, 70% of families in the US are not aware of the incredible benefits of the 529. We’re going to help with that today.

Money Master of the Week
Congratulations to Rocky Lalvani for setting up his two children up Roth IRAs this year. His two children, now 15 and 17, already have thousands of dollars saved up.
If he continues similar deposits for his kids throughout their college years, they will both easily become millionaires by retirement age.
How’s that for a Christmas present?!
