What can you afford to pay per year for college & alternative education?
Please note: You don’t need to figure out the exact number, but figure out a ballpark so you can narrow down your college search. We will factor in scholarships and grants later.
______(savings per year) – ______(Alternative education budget) + ______(student loans per year) = ________ (total affordability per year for 4 years)
Wait! Why alternative education?
We live in the digital age! Education, information, and knowledge are at our fingertips!
If you want your student to stand outl, adding an alternative education budget is a MUST for most industries.
Looking to become a nurse or doctor? This might not be AS IMPORTANT, but it still will help!
However, looking to become an entrepreneur, business executive, artist, writer, or programmer. THIS IS CRUCIAL!
Why is this crucial?
Because you need to differentiate yourself in the marketplace. Everyone goes to college now and therefore receives a similar education.
How is this making you any different than everyone else?
By investing in additional knowledge on top of your degree, you are creating a unique palette of skills that are different than everyone else!
