Most parents want their kids to not get stuck with a mountain of student loan debt. Learn the best ways to save now for your kid’s college or trade school!

How to Save for Your Kid’s College / Trade School Education

With student loans seeming like a weight on many college grads, I think most parents who kids are thinking about either college, trade school, or vocational schools are trying to find ways to ease the burden by saving ahead.

And the advice typically given is to save ahead.

How do you do that when you juggling your current family expenses and saving up for other goals?

To help me out today is Drew Snider. He’s a director in Financial Planning at Coastal Wealth Management.

He’s also a parent of a 12-year-old daughter and yes, he’s been thinking about this as well. So he’s looking at this from both sides.

In this episode, we’ll get into:

  • The rising costs of college and why its harder for kids to work through college
  • What options you have to save to and invest
  • How you can start saving now

Let’s get started!
