FREE Workshop: Paying for College

CV 2017 Workshop Ad Bay view.fw

There have been some changes to the way high school students apply to FAFSA. Families need to know what the changes are, what the important dates not to miss are, and how to get students graduated from college not mired in debt.

Financial education speaker and the author of “10 Things College Students Need to Know About Money” Shay Olivarria will be facilitating a FREE workshop in San Diego, CA to help families figure it all out.

In this dynamic one hour workshop students and parents will learn about the changes to the FAFSA application, scholarships, student loan types, and repayment options.

Families will leave with a handout of important terms, tips, and dates. Graduating from college is not just about having the grades to get in. It’s about finding a school that’s a good fit, paying for it without going broke, and creating a network to build a career.

Hoover High Event

Shay had a great time speaking at Hoover. Go Cardinals!

I had the honor of going back to my alma mater and speaking to the entire senior class about personal finance. We had groups of almost 100 kids come in for hour-long workshops. They were surprised to learn that they would not be able to credit cards after they graduate and thrilled to learn about credit unions. I had a great time working with the staff and students at Hoover and I look forward to working with them again.

Read what Vice Principle Kinlaw had to say about my visit.

Be well.

Become N.E.W.

I had a great time speaking at the financial empowerment event for Become N.E.W. yesterday and apparently they had a great time as well.

Shay, you did an excellent job. Your presentation was lively, informative, and funny! You have great energy and it comes through in your work. I would love to get a copy of your power point presentation. Please keep in touch cuz a sister gotta stay on course!

People are used to hearing professionals speak about personal finance. No offense, but speakers on money matters tend to be a little on the dry side. We talked, we laughed, we shared stories, we worked through myths to creating abundance, and I shared 7 tips to create abundance in your life. I’m glad that I’m able to share information in a way that people can hear and are motivated to put to use. Esther Joseph agrees,

Shay, you are amazing! Thank you sooo much for coming out and truly blessing us with valuable, life-altering information. You are a blessing and a gift from God. I appreciate you and look forward to working with you again in the future. Continue this walk of being a valuable resource in the lives of God’s people. …You were VERY organized and your presentation well delivered and thought out.. this is certainly only just the beginning for you.. good journey :).. God bless.

I also had the opportunity to meet comedian Barry Brewer. He did a funny set, stayed for the workshop, and added value to the conversation by asking awesome questions. Here’s what he thought about the workshop:

My work deals with translating financial education jargon into simple terms that we can all use in our everyday lives and coaching you toward feeling confident enough to make choices. Many people know they want to have more money or manage their money better, but they aren’t sure where to begin or whom to speak with. Many people have fears about authority figures or emotional baggage around money. Basically, I make learning money management fun!

Mail registration form and make $50 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot.

See you in February!

Be well.
