Why The College Funding Coach?®

As a father of three boys, Mario knows very well the fear and anxiety that parents face when trying to figure out how they are going to get their kids through college.

Mario joined The College Funding Coach® to be a better resource to his clients with one of the largest obstacles most parents face: how to pay for college without sacrificing their business value and their retirement.

As Regional Director of Pennsylvania, Mario and his team deliver the class, “Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College”, to private and public schools throughout the tri-state area. The class focuses on legal strategies for qualifying for more financial aid and leveraging assets to make your money work more efficiently and effectively – in the end reducing the total cost of attendance.
