Radical Personal Finance

Recently I received this personal note from a personal friend of mine: "My wife suggested I reach out to you for advice as we plan to start saving for our soon-to-be-born-son's education.  Hard to believe it's going to be just a few weeks now.  I've looked into our state's 529 plan, but wasn't sure if there were better options.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated." 

My advice in response was simple: don't set up a college plan for your young child. It's a bad idea and a poor use of money in light of all the other things you can do with money that are better.

Interested?

Listen.
