Are you freaking out about how you're going to pay for your kid to go to college? This episode is for you, as Scott talks with Nannette Kamien the author of “Crazy College Money”. With all the news about the student loan crisis, college admissions scandals, and ever-rising college costs, it's easy to get caught up in the crazy that is the college admissions process. Nannette starts with the root of all this crazy - the emotions and experiences of you, the parents. She believes paying for college is as much an emotional decision as a financial one. Based on her work with families of college-bound kids, she shares her process and expertise to help you make smart money decisions, instead of crazy ones. You’ll stop wishing for the Financial Aid Fairy to arrive and stop using hope as a strategy to pay for college and learn to rely on yourself and become a smart consumer of college education, without going crazy.
Look here for the transcriptions of podcast episodes. With complicated military financial topics such as state and federal taxes, the military spouse residency relief act (MSRRA), the survivor benefit plan, the blended retirement system and the thrift savings plan it sometimes helps to be able to read what was said to fully understand the complicated and unfamiliar military financial topics. I hope these transcripts help you understand the topic more fully and provide a resource to you.
