College Planning CPR for Parents of College-Bound Kids

by Terri Hawkins


Does just thinking about paying for college cause your heart to skip a beat? Do you hear parents around you bemoaning the skyrocketing costs of college?  

To be protected from a “financial heart attack,” you or any such parents should schedule a complimentary CPR meeting with Pat Fehlig, a Certified College Planning Relief Specialist. Pat doesn’t just focus on the best financial path for students and their families—she also helps match colleges suited to students’ academic paths, for a comprehensive planning approach.

Pat helps such families think about the end results their children desire, then uses her resources and tools to help families find and pick the colleges known for students’ career choices. And, more than looking at sticker-price, she also helps parents wade through the financial options to better understand how to prepare and guide their children through the maze of college choices.

Many parents are not aware that out-of-pocket costs don’t necessarily correlate with the sticker price of a school. For instance, while annual tuition of a public school costs less than private, not-for-profit and private-for-profit schools, students generally take more time to graduate from public schools, losing some of that potential financial advantage. Often times, gifts and other funding available at private schools exceed that of public schools, so that combining all financial options, it can cost less out-of-pocket to go to a private school rather than a public school.

Get help wading through financial options to better understand, and to prepare and guide your children through the maze of college choices!

So, do you know someone with college-bound kids? Let them know Pat is available to meet with them personally, and that she provides FREE workshops to parents of middle and high school students and athletes. Introduce her to small business owners, those wondering about tax-advantage strategies, youth pastors, PTAs, and other such groups… with parents who would like to have money left for their own retirements!

ABC Roofing Among Best NC Roofers, Backed by Good Housekeeping

by Terri Hawkins

Seal Your Roofing Deal

…with a Roofer BACKED by Good Housekeeping

When making one of the largest investments in your home, such as a roof replacement, trust is important. And that trust should have some teeth to it. Some good questions to explore when speaking with your roofing candidates:

  • Are they adequately insured for your protection?
  • Do they have a proven reputation in your community?
  • Are they committed to ongoing professional training?
  • What licensing do they have?

When homeowners choose locally owned and operated ABC Roofing, Inc., a GAF Master Elite™ Roofer, they receive professionally-trained installation with extensive protection and warranty options.  GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has stringent standards for their roofing contractors, as they do their products. Only the top 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as factory-certified, Master Elite contractors.

Greg Flury, owner of ABC Roofing, explained recently how GAF’s ongoing high product and certification standards have helped their highly-trained contractors to have their installations backed—not just endorsed—by the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. The Good Housekeeping Seal is earned and maintained by strict reviews and product testing, and with it comes a two-year warranty to add to manufacturer backing.

“They don’t just trust – they verify” – About the GH Seal, The Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2010

For ABC Roofing to achieve its GAF Master Elite roofer certification, and provide the added Good Housekeeping two-year warranty, it has to successfully meet and maintain five criteria:

  • Be in business 5 years—this takes the worry out of the selection processing, helping customers avoid “fly-by-nighters”
  • Be fully insured–with worker’s comp and general liability
  • Be up-to-date with GAF training–all installers must be trained once a year by GAF
  • Have a good reputation in its community—this is assessed by constant checking with local suppliers and surveys to customer when they submit their warranty paperwork
  • Meet state licensing requirements. Did you know NC doesn’t have any licensing for roofing contractors?

With no licensing standards in NC, how do you verify your roofer’s credentials and competency?
With no licensing standards in NC, how do you verify your roofer’s credentials and competency? Choosing ABC Roofing, as one of only 3 GAF Master Elite-certified contractors in the Triad, protects homeowners from playing “Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkey” with roof selections. Don’t let roofing projects “go wrong in a big way”—call Greg with ABC Roofing.

Remember to introduce your friends who you know have roofing projects, too. (Share the link to this article, Greg’s contact info, or ABC Roofing website, too, for their quick reference.) Homeowners, real estate agents, and contractors are all great introductions for Greg and his team to seal the deal!
