3:00 pm – 3:15 pm: How to Get An A+ In Saving for College

For many Americans, college has become a stepping stone to financial success. Yet many students leave school with onerous levels of student loan debt they must begin to repay almost right away— debt that can not only tax their ability to make ends meet as they embark on careers, but also jeopardize their financial security far into the future. With a dizzying array of options, terms, forms, and guidelines, parents might feel like they need to sign up for a few classes themselves as they try to figure out how they’re going to pay for a child’s college education. We can help you start to understand these options.

4:30 pm – 4:45 pm: Planning Your Retirement as an Entrepreneur

As a small business owner, you have many options when choosing retirement plans for your employees. By exploring all of your options and fitting them to the fiscal and operational structure of your company, you can decide how much you can and want to contribute to employee retirement plans and what type of plan can best handle these contributions. You also need to think about protecting the future of your business by having a sound succession plan in place for life events that affect key people and can disrupt business and goals, such as retirement, disability, or the loss of a key person. How can you transfer or mitigate these risks?
