Smart Start: Protecting Your Child’s College and Future

Million Dollar Baby… a.k.a. the Head Start Program, is a cool way to get more out of saving for your child’s college.  Many college savings plan’s limit you to only using your hard-earned, saved money in very specific ways for only certain types of schools.  If you need those funds for something else (such as RENT, health care, or grocery shopping, while in school; or if your child chooses a non-collegiate path), you may have to deal with hefty fines and taxes.MDB Daniel

Our new Head Start Program does something different.  We all know the power of TIME and COMPOUNDING INTEREST when it comes to saving for school or retirement.  Most of us wish we had started saving sooner.  With the Head Start Program, your child can be 18-25 years ahead on saving for retirement (or down payment on a home/vacation of a lifetime/etc.) by the time most people would even start looking into retirement savings options!

Here is a short video to show how this works.  This is a general overview and there are many options available to meet your needs in protecting your child’s future.

Imagine if your parents did this for you.  Imagine going to college and getting $35,000-40,000 for college (never have to pay it back, use it how YOU need it). Imagine turning 30 and someone giving you $20,000 for a down payment on a home.  Now imagine entering retirement with a $250,000+/year tax-free income every year for the rest of your life.  Now imagine that security for your child.  It is easier than you think, time is on your side, if you start now.

One of our team members will be happy to meet with you and your family to customize a perfect plan for your child, your needs, and your budget.  Call Marino Financial Group today at (865) 686-8204.

MFG Pride

Our team is leading the way – Congrats to Chris Martin for hitting the National Leader Boards in both Personal and Group Production!   This is a great example of how one person can step up and make a difference in a short amount of time once the mind is set and the hustle is applied.  #6 in the COUNTRY – Great Job!

Chris and Angie Martin

Chris worked 2 days in the field and another few hours for administrative work.  He sat with 8 families and turned in 6 applications for a total of $9,610.56 APV.  A new agent would take home $4,324.75 –  for less than 15-20 hours of work.  Not a bad week, even with Chris only working part time as he was gearing up to go to the SFG National Conference in North Carolina.

The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It Paperback – October 14, 2004

 In this first new and totally revised edition of the 150,000-copy underground bestseller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed. He then shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business whether or not it is a franchise. Finally, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business. After you have read The E-Myth Revisited, you will truly be able to grow your business in a predictable and productive way.
