Houston based college financial scholarship experts, The College Money Guys, have announced monthly workshops to expose the real story behind financial aid packages. Their goal is to help parents avoid racking up huge debt when sending their kids to college.
Houston, United States – December 11, 2017 —
The College Money Guys, a Houston based consulting company, has announced workshops to expose the real story behind financial aid packages. At monthly workshops, parents and their students learn how to avoid the biggest costly mistakes which people often make during the college application process. The goal of the workshops are to provide invaluable tips that help families save tens of thousands of dollars over the course of their child’s 4-6 year college career.
Full details of the free workshops are available at: http://CollegeMoneyforTexans.org
As a former Assistant Director of Admissions at Rice University, Kurt Goedecke, the Branch Manager of The College Money Guys, is intimately familiar with how the system works. He outlines the simple but shocking formulas used by both state and private schools that show how financial aid has evolved into a recruiting tool instead of truly rewarding academic achievement.
Kurt states “The sad irony is that valuable financial grants no longer go to students who have earned it. They go to those who know how to work the system.”
Kurt further elaborates that the college scholarship process has changed drastically over the years and is currently designed to substantially leverage revenue for schools. In fact, most colleges are hiring consultants who use sophisticated data to extract the maximum dollars from families by putting a twist on the perception of scholarships.
Handouts at the workshops include articles by Forbes and other sources to document the inside story of free college money. At the monthly workshops, Kurt also cautions parents to understand why the advice they receive from their CPA or money manager, although well intentioned, might actually end up hurting their eligibility for financial aid packages.

Brannon Lloyd, the founder of The College Money Guys, has been so effective at helping parents substantially reduce the exorbitant costs of college that he was invited to do a personal workshop for Dave Ramsey’s team in 2012. Brannon was asked to teach Dave’s team his process so that they could better coach their own clients on how to secure great financial aid packages and avoid racking up huge debt.
Brannon added, “This company was born out of our passion to help families avoid student loan debt. Years ago as a financial advisor, I witnessed a pattern of my clients saying that they felt great about their 401k but then would confess that they had absolutely no idea how they were going to pay for their kids to go to college. To serve my clients better, I knew I had to do something to reduce their stress and make sure they did not sabotage their retirement.”
