College Planning Education Helping Families Avoid Costly Mistakes

Rather than the brighter financial future most parents anticipated, college has left many disenchanted with their student’s college experience, the value of their education, depleted retirement accounts, and generations buried in debt.

After hearing horror stories from thousands of former students and parents, the LFE Institute, an unbiased Financial Wellness firm for over two decades, developed  innovative new College Planning Educational tools to help families avoid these problems.

This education is not meant to duplicate the valuable information already available, but to fill in the gaps. These two digital tools – while very different – are both designed to help students, parents, and even grandparents learn the latest college traps to avoid, identify ‘insider secrets’ many families never hear, and provide strategies to prevent costly mistakes that can add thousands to the cost of college.

Two Unique New Tools

UNIQUE VIDEO LIBRARY … AVOID THE LATEST TRAPS

Concise, timely videos have become the preferred method every generation uses to instantly build skills and learn how to prevent problems. This is especially true in today’s rapidly changing college landscape where every decision could cost tens of thousands of dollars. This new College Video Library quickly helps students and parents identify traps to avoid, alternatives to consider, how to prevent costly mistakes, effective strategies to save thousands, and more … all of which are designed to protect their financial security in the future!
