I'm a single parent to two teenagers. I live in New Jersey with my kids and my ragdoll cat, Lily.
I started researching college costs in earnest about 2 years ago, and thought- yikes! Is it really impossible to get through college without borrowing a small fortune?
Well, it turns out that IS possible to get debt-free degrees, even in this day and age! Even with a healthy six-figure income.

Fun Facts about Nancy:
Update: After the death of my son, and when one of his friends got a tattoo in his honor, I decided that I should too. Now I have his handsome face right on my arm where I can look at it all the time!
I do believe in creating my own luck through planning and living with intention and purpose. As Douglas MacArthur said "the best luck of all is the luck you make yourself"
I love it all - Jane Austen, the Beatles, afternoon tea, gorgeous gardens..I've probably been to England dozens of times, but it's not enough! (Here is a rendering of the Royal Wedding in Legos, at Hamleys on Regent St).
I don't sail (yet), but I will. I also see myself kayaking, crabbing (maybe), bicycling and horseback riding. Oh, and I also plan to take up the piano and tap dancing.
So surely I can get 2 kids through college without debt, right?
Yes, college cost less then, but still - 7 kids? How did they do this? A variety of ways, really, but most of all, because they made it a priority.
They did something right. It didn't happen accidentally.
I started saving when they were babies. A little at a time, but it sure does add up.
The trick is balancing college costs with saving for your own retirement.
I can show you what I've learned - and help you avoid debt!
