As an optometrist, saving for college for your child or children can be a sensitive subject. Depending on how or if you had to pay for your own education can influence your mindset and how high on the priority list college savings is for you and your family.

If you decide that you want to save funds for higher education, there are a number of vehicles to consider with vary tax advantages. In this episode we look at 529 plans, Roth IRAs, utilizing a Family Management Company (FMC), how you can cash flow part of the cost when your kids get to college, and how life insurance could be used to fund college (though I admit it’s not one that I recommend).
