Words from one of our #schoalrship recipients ... My name is Brianna O’Connell and I received the Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship in 2014. I am currently finishing my senior year of nursing school at Gwynedd Mercy University, looking to graduate and earn my BSN in May 2019. While I continue my education this fall, I am also assistant coaching the Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School’s Field Hockey team. After graduation, I am hoping to fulfill my dream of becoming a Pediatric Nurse at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. I am beyond grateful to have been a recipient of the Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship, as it gave me the opportunity to fulfill a life long dream." This is why we have this #scholarship , please help us continue to give the gift of education !

#PolicyDelivery for a millennial.
As early as now, he knows the value of preparing and saving for his retirement!
Good job and Congratulations Rhomuell for having your first VUL with Pru Life UK. Thank you for trusting me as your financial advisor.
As young as he is, he already started a plan for his retirement and at the same time his income is protected from life's uncertainties like death, critical illness and disability.
If you want to know more about retirement planning, preparing for college education of your kids while protecting your income with Life Insurance, send me a private message today and schedule a financial coaching session with me.
Let’s talk student loans + stress! I, like many other millennials, used student loan resources to earn degrees. When you’re a freshmen in college with bright eyes full of optimism for the future that the gen-x generation said would be full of success as long as we obtained degrees and secure a “good job”, you rarely think about what student loan debts looks like years later. How are you dealing with your student loans and the stress that they can add to your life? Do you feel that you will pay them off at some point in your life? Comment below and let’s discuss.
S/O to @servedfresh for this dope sweatshirt! 😉

Take a look at this awesome review from a past client!💬 "Thank you so much for providing me details of the Pell Grant. We applied and in less than two weeks we were informed a $5600 grant had been awarded to Alana to complete her last year of nursing school. I couldn't have done it without you. Best Wishes, Dr.Bob
In 2015, my student loan balance was $29,000 for both my undergraduate and graduate degree. With interest, today my balance is $52,000 and climbing!
My monthly payments are $482 (after two reviews/appeals.)
Basically a NEW car note.
Not complaining one bit because I understand it could be worst. I’ve heard and seen worst.
I just want us to have DIALOUGE about these realities when considering college as education path.
