You're not alone in this!

When you're not sure where to find the right answers and maybe even a little embarrassed about how little you know when it comes to paying for college, it's nice to know you have a place to ask questions, learn from others, and occasionally blow off some steam when your kid won't pick a darn school!

Our Empowered community is parents just like you (and a certain Certified College Funding Specialist) who are on the same journey of finding the best ways to pay for college - but not too much - and who aren't willing to just take whatever a financial aid officer is going to give them. We're learning together, sharing what works (and what doesn't) so others can win this college funding game, too. 

Colleges would have you believe this is a zero-sum game, but it's not. You'll see that in the Empowered community.
