This seminar aims to educate parents on education expenses and the financial aid process. It will also touch on different ways to save money in retirement accounts.

It will cover:

  • What you need to consider to set up your retirement accounts
  • How to balance your retirement funding
Where can you find a retirement vehicle that:
  • yields a high return?
  • has little or no risk?

Together with their team, they have helped hundreds of families/individuals plan for their retirement. Nancy was also featured in the November 2012 issue of FORBES magazine for her work.

Recap Education Seminar – Raising a Self-Motivated Child

There were a lot discussion and interaction during the seminar. A lot of parents stayed after the seminar to ask questions. Dr. Caffrey is very kind to offer our parents her email here:

If you have more questions regarding motivating your child, you can send her an email directly.
