The financial aid process is govern by complicated and complex rules.  One would have to learn as much as possible to began its journey to capture as much money as possible.   For examples, in sports their are rules of the game but each coach applies their philosophy to win. In order to win successfully and consistently, you must have a winning philosophy.  For over 20 years I have helped thousands of families obtained MILLIONS of dollars because of my winning philosophy.   You must have a philosophy that allows you to adapt to the changes.  There are principles I apply  that allows families to be in a position to be successful.  Be ahead of the game and learn the financial rules and then learn from others who were successful in the financial aid game using a winning philosophy.

There are BILLIONS of traditional college funds available (about $300 billion dollars according to Octamoron Associates) each year for college-bound students.  Seriously.  I am talking about monies you don’t have to pay back.  Check out these numbers.  There are about 400 million people in the United States.  It only requires a half of billion (500 million dollars)  out of the 300 billion dollars to pay everyone that is a citizen and eligible non-citizen full tuition for four years.  Please note that everyone would get a million dollars (if the millions of dollars were distributed equally.)  There’s more than enough money.  Also, about 22 million students apply and use  financial aid each year.  Much less than 400 million living in the U.S.  So there is plenty of money to be had if you are knowledgable about the financial aid game.  The colleges are aware of these numbers that is why the cost of college continue to rise.  If the colleges were charging a million dollars to each student to enroll, based on what is available in college funding today, it wouldn’t scratch the surface.  There’s plenty of money available.  Hustle and get that money.

Free money for college does not EXIST.  So many parents with college-bound students are fooled every year believing that college costs can be paid with free money.  That’s a lie.  First, let’s define the word money.  Money  means a medium of EXCHANGE, trade or barter.  The word free is not mentioned in the definition.  You have to DO something to RECEIVE Something.  That’s money.  Having said that, there are only three ways to get traditional cash for college.  They are  through an Athletic Scholarship, Academic Scholarship or Aquired Specialized knowledge.  They ALL cost.  They are not FREE.  For example, to win an athletic scholarship  a student athlete have to work hard developing their skills for many years, go to paid training camps, paid academic training and be on a winning High School team.  It ‘s Not FREE.  To win an academic scholarship, a student will have to put in countless hours studying, do paid SAT or ACT training, do extra curricula activities and be in the top ten of his or her class.  It’s Not FREE.  To maximized on finacial aid,  you have to acquire specialized knowledge by investing in  financial aid workshops, professional guidance, financial aid books and materials.  It’s Not FREE.   Knowing these things will give you leverage it maximizing on financial aid opportunities you don’t have to back to cover college costs.  There are BILLIONS of dollars available if you are willing to HUSTLE!  Remember, you have to Do something to RECIVE something.  That’s  MONEY.

Students and parents will continue to face the rising cost of an education for the next 20 years.  If you are putting all your efforts on the traditional way or using student loans to pay for college, you are  heading for a disaster.  One way to prevent all of that from happening is crowdfunding.  Crowdfunding is a practice of funding projects by raising sums of money from large number of people using the internet.  There are no strict rules or regulations to get these funds like the traditional way of funding college.  You must have a story that would interest these groups to fund your project.  This is a smart way to generate money you don’t have to payback.  You can get more information from these sites on the internet: Gofundme, Gradsave, Givecollege, Upstart, Pave, Scholarmatch, Incited.  Be aggressive.  Hustle! and get that money.

Parents with college-bound students better start looking at colleges in a different frame of mind.  This will help them to focus their energy on GETTING MONIES they don’t have to back to cover tuition costs.  Check this out, this is a description of what a business is in the U.S.:

  • Businesses are organizations with a infrastructure (colleges and universities are too)
  • Businesses are involved with trade of goods and services (education and training) to consumers (students)
  • Businesses have revenue streams (cost of attendance) and expenditures (administration, professors and maintenance of the campus)
  • Businesses have income goals ( colleges have to make money to continue their existence)
  • Businesses are profit (private colleges) or non-profit (state colleges)

Don’t focus your attention on what college costs today.  You have no control of that. They are doing their business. Focus on the BILLIONS of dollars available to you to pay for it.  Take care of your business.  Let’s go and HUSTLE!

The rising cost of college is not a problem today for parents with college-bound students.  In fact, it NEVER was a problem.  In an economy, everthing rises.  We make adjustments if we want to.  If we want to better our situation.  Interesting enough, there are more FREE resources available today then ever before, where  students can exceed the total cost of attendance. What holds people back is not having a philosopy to win free money.  Rules and regulations that governs the financial aid process changes every year.  However, a winning philosophy overcomes any changes to the financial aid game.  It’s all about philosophy.  Develop the right mindset, learn about the numerous resources that are available then hustle and get the most free money as possible.

Students today are coming out of college with enormous amount of loans.  The game is over!  Because they never had a game plan entering college.  It is ironic that we live in a country where there are abundance of free resources to pay for college no matter  your income and families continue to make the same mistake.  It balls down to a lack of planning.  You see, when you plan you seek out the information in terms of free resources that applies to your situation.  When you plan, you are not in a rush to attend a college that are not willing to give you free resources.  When you plan,  you get the help that are willing to help you achieve your financial goal.  When you plan, you don’t wait the last minute and expect MAXIMUM results in 60 seconds when it requires at least six months.  You Must Plan.  Colleges and Universities are not going any place soon.  They are waiting for the lack of planners because they can get them to take out loans…the last minute.

Despite what’s going on with the economy, those who are knowledgable of the ABUNDANT world of financial aid, will be able to get a FREE college education.  Gaining knowledge is the first step but taking action or the application of that knowledge is ESSENTIAL.  The combination of the two creates results.  Students and parents, develop the  mindset for getting money, seek knowledge and apply that knowledge to get results (money to pay for college).
