ADFP Greater Boston September 2014 Meeting

College Planning and Divorce

One of the more overlooked areas of financial planning in general (and divorce planning in particular), is the subject of college planning.  Since "college" is often excluded from consideration in many state divorce statutes, the topic is often overlooked by clients and their attorneys, but can have significant financial impact, not only on the family's future financial goals, but also on the college student's own life. 

A divorce financial professional can add significant value to their services by educating their divorcing clients on how divorce affects college aid and planning.  Many divorce financial professionals (as well as financial advisors in general) do not have a solid working knowledge of how financial aid is calculated or how college costs are met during the college years. This workshop will discuss the college financial aid and aid application process as well as how to incorporate college costs and considerations into your divorce planning for those clients with college-bound children.  Strategies to consider and pitfalls to avoid will be included in the discussion.


Brief Bullet Points of Presentation:

  • Overview of College Cost Issues

  • Understanding Financial Aid Options for the Three Categories of Families

  • Financial Aid, EFC and the Eligibility Formulas (Federal versus Institutional Methods)

  • The Aid Application Process: Who Should Fill Out the Forms and Why

  • Application of Planning for All Income Levels

  • How Divorce Affects Aid Eligibility and College Planning

  • Divorce and Impact on Base Year Financial Aid Considerations

  • Strategies Beyond Financial Aid: Dealing with High Income Families

  • Effective Strategies to Maximize Aid and Case Study

Featuring: Steve Stanganelli, CFP®, CRPC®, NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor is principal of CollegeCashPro.com, a unit of fee-only financial planning firm Clear View Wealth Advisors, LLC with offices in Amesbury, Newburyport, Wilmington and Burlington. Steve is a member of the Association of Divorce Financial Planners and the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council. He has also compleged training as a Financial Neutral.

Beat Academy Summer Camp Final Performance

Join us for Beat Academy's Final Performance at the Mmmmaven Project! Campers ages 10 - 14 will show us what they got after an intenstive week-long DJ boot camp.

Over the course of the week, campers learned the ins and outs of industry standard equipment, got their hands dirty in some new technology, and produced their first six-song mini-mix. They learned how to organize their favorite tracks and get in the mix with different styles, and now is their opportunity to see if they have what it takes to play in front of a crowd of screaming fans!

Come out and support the new generation of DJs!

Burn the Business Plan....

And Execute Like Your Life Depends on It!

Over the past 10 years I have interviewed more than 100 of the most dynamic, successful, wealthy, salespeople and entrepreneurs in the world.  These people are visionaries, leaders, and empire builders from all walks of life.... people like....

Real Estate Mogul, Dick DeWolfe

Publisher of Success Magazine, Darren Hardy

The Most Referred Realtor in the World & Best Selling Author, Michael Maher

Best Selling Author of The Secret and The Answer, John Assaraf

Media Mogul, Susan Wornick

Media Mogul, Arianna Huffington

Technology Giant and Empire Builder, Gary Vaynerchuk

Automotive Billionaire, Ernie Boch Jr.

Beauty Empire Builder, Mike Barsamian

Founder of The Miracle Morning System & Best Selling Author, Hal Elrod

Best Selling Author of Selling Luxury Homes, Jack Cotton

The list goes on... and on... Nancy Michaels, Marc Wayshak, Bob Burg, Jon Gordon, and so many more....

I've spent a good part of my life studying successful people and I'm about to share with you a glimpse into what makes the difference between those who experience collossal, out of the world success and those that sink into mediocrity. 

I've got great news for you..... 

You don't need to spend hours laboring over business plans, because that's not what makes these people AMAZING.  You also don't need to spend millions of dollars on marketing and advertising....because that's not what put any of these people on the map.  You don't even need to work 60 hours a week to climb the ranks of the elite....because all of the people I've interviewed MADE IT to the top...and most don't spend every waking hour working. 

This fast paced one hour program is about EXECUTION.  It is about the power of ACTING ON simple techniques consistently so that the face of your business changes OVERNIGHT.  This class is packed with information...so much so that your hand will hurt from taking notes.  If you come to the class.....if you do something with the principles I teach....your business will take off RIGHT AWAY.  Leave your excuses at the door and come prepared for a new way of building a profitable real estate business.
