About our guest: Ann Garcia, aka The College Financial Lady, has helped thousands of families save millions of dollars on college. A fee-only Certified Financial Planner and managing partner of Independent Progressive Advisors, Ann specializes in helping families balance the desire to support their children’s dreams with the reality of funding their own lives.

Early in Ann’s career as a financial advisor, she heard the same two questions again and again from her clients. One group asked, “How can we possibly afford to save for college and retirement?” Another group asked, “How can I save for retirement when I’m paying so much on my student loans every month?” In working with families– including her own– to plan for college, Ann has learned that a good college plan is equal parts good parenting and good financial planning.

Ann has been featured in the New York Times, US News & World Report, CNN Money and countless other media outlets.

Ann, thanks for sharing your financial wisdom with the world, and for guiding people on an important and often overwhelming journey…paying for college.  Ann, welcome to the show!

TOTD – “Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.   When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.   The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”                                                                   Fred Rogers
