How I Changed My Child’s Life In 15 Minutes

I changed my new daughter’s life in just 15 minutes time a couple of weeks ago.

That’s quite a dramatic statement, isn’t it?

But it’s true.

How did I change her life?

  • Did I move?
  • Did I decide to change careers?
  • Did I do something super drastic?

Nope. In fact, I did something you could also do to change your child’s life.

Here’s what I did:  I opened my daughter’s 529 college savings account and established automatic monthly contributions. It took a total of 15 minutes. And with that one decision and accompanying action, I changed her life.

Think about it. Because her mother and father took action when she was ZERO years old, when she is EIGHTEEN years old she won’t have to worry about:

  • Paying for college
  • Graduating with a boatload of student loans
  • Whether or not she can even afford to go to college

The magnitude of her parent’s simple decision will still be felt decades from now.

Perhaps you could take 15 minutes of your time right now to open your child’s 529 college savings account and help change their life.

    What would you suggest for an alternative to a 529 plan that allows the parent/child access to the money if the child doesn’t attend college?
