The College Funding Crash Course

Financial Advisors: Let's end the student loan crisis one family at a time!

Paying for college is the number one financial concern facing mass-affluent Gen X parents.  

These are families that will not qualify for financial aid because they make too much money, and yet they don’t have enough saved to write a check.

Financial advisors are uniquely positioned to help them better than anyone else.

These families need us now!

The cost of college continues to rise at twice the rate of inflation and American student loan debt is out of control. The stress and anxiety of how to pay for an education that could cost $100,000 to $250,000 per child is always on their mind.

If you were in the top 1% of financial advisors skilled at college funding...how would that change your practice & benefit your clients?

Most financial advisors get college funding advice & planning all wrong. But, it's not your fault. We were never taught how (or why) to do this the best way possible.

When you learn how to properly guide families through this difficult process, they will be very grateful. The word of your expertise spreads, and more families in the community know, like, trust, and respect you.

Client acquisition & retention become easier because other financial advisors in your area are probably not meeting the college planning needs of families in your community.

Access the proven process we used to grew our practice to focus exclusively on this niche.

About the instructor

Joe is a leading authority on late-stage college funding and frequently speaks to organizations and parent groups, such as the OSCPA, FPA, and XY Planning Network.

With Capstone College Partners, he’s on a mission to educate other financial advisors to raise the bar on college funding advice…and help end the student loan crisis, one family at a time.

He started his own firm because of his struggles at large national firms to find and provide good financial advice — especially in the area of college planning.

It always seemed to be about the next product sale to a client.

After months of soul searching, he & his partner decided to strike out on their own in 2009 by forming an independent fee-only practice.

They chose the name “Capstone” to reflect the new firm’s focus on college planning (“capstone” refers to a student’s final course of subject mastery in a higher education setting). And, included “Partners” in the name to signify their intent with client relationships — that is, a real partnership built on trust and not just a one-time sales transaction.

In this course you'll learn how to replicate the process (without having to go through the trial & error experimentation they did). Learn a proven business building template you can implement to build a thriving practice working with clients you love.
