4 College Savings Options for Your Child
Fall means back to school and that may have set you to thinking about what happens once your little ones finish high school.
In my practice, college savings is a very common goal for parents and grandparents.
Sarah Around Town
There I was, in the middle of the mountains of California, with my hiking boots, hiking pants, hiking shirt, and hiking canteen. But had I packed hiking socks?
No. No I had not.
I was bummed.
But I thought that I'd ask the folks at the hotel reception desk if there might be a gift shop in the hotel selling socks.
No, there was not.
But the nice man behind the desk said "Wait here, one minute, please." I waited several beats, unsure where he had dashed off to. When he returned he had a pair of brand new socks in his hand. "Will these work?"
(As you can see, they did.)
In that moment I experienced two things: surprise and delight. I certainly hadn't expected this man to bring me socks and I was delighted when he did. He saved the day.
It was a simple thing. But a thing I will always remember.
And a lesson. When you can surprise and delight, you'll win the warm regard of those you serve. Know that I am always looking for ways to surprise and delight you. Because you deserve it.
