I Got The Answers I Needed.  My Daughter Got The College She Deserved!​

Jean Keller [and Smart Plan for College] helped me tremendously with my daughter! The whole college thing is so confusing that, by the time I figured it out on my own, my daughter would have been graduated and married by then.... I'm raising a daughter, I work full time, I'm in college myself.  There's no such thing as "free time".  In my world it does not exist!  I wanted specific answers to my specific questions that matched my specific needs.  And the web wasn't going to give me that but Jean and her team, could, would and did!"
