Description

Are you the parent of a high schooler? What about a teen looking into your college options? Although searching for a school can be exciting, you're probably also concerned about the rising cost of tuition. Is there really a way to knock out at least half of a college degree quickly and without taking on any student loans? I did it, and tons of other people do it too! Learn some of the best tips for success in avoiding those loans.

In this course you will

  • Hear my story -- I had over 60 college credit hours within one year after high school and was completely debt free!
  • Learn how to get ahead of college while in high school
  • Decide what action steps you want to take to avoid debt once you've graduated from high school
  • And overall how to get through college faster and with more freedom than your peers, which puts you way ahead of the game later on!


Please note: my course is based on the American college system. If you are attending college elsewhere, please take a look at this course within the first 30 days so that you can determine its relevance to your situation.

Who is the target audience?
  • High school students who want to earn a college degree without crazy student loans
  • College students who want to cut costs while attending college
  • Parents of high school and college aged students who are concerned about the price tag attached to a college diploma

"Always be doing cool stuff"

I'm a sales representative by day, but so much more when off the clock. I'm in my early 20's and have already traveled to seven foreign countries, have a full time job in the professional world (without having a BA!), have earned an Associates degree debt free, and continue my education while tackling my full time job and motherhood. Life is short, so I'm always trying to pack in as much excitement and creativity as possible. Join me in the journey.
