Lennon, Founder of the College Planning Center and Financial Aid Experts,was recently seen in USA Today in recognition of his recent best-selling book, The Secret to Lifetime Financial Security: The Nation's Leading Financial Advisors Reveal How to Turn Your Back on Banks and Wall Street and Take Control of Your Financial Future Today.The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™ (NABSA) offers its congratulations to Mr. Lennon for his contribution to the book (co-authored with Pamela Yellen, President of Bank on Yourself). The NABSA is an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists. Lennon’s chapter is titled “Imagine…A Road To Future Security Through Strategic College Planning.”
In the USA Today feature, John J. Lennon remarks, “What I’ve discovered over the past decade while building a college resource center, is that it is very easy for even the most educated to make mistakes and assume private colleges are an untouchable dream. This book helps to connect these dreams by furthering my philosophy that financial security is obtainable for anyone.”In 2001, John J. Lennon opened the College Planning Center to address the overwhelming need to educate parents on the college process and successfully getting all of their kids through college (in the most timely manner). John has researched and developed an extensive knowledge about the college financial aid system, to best serve his clients by giving advice and strategies that most parents don’t think about or have access to when saving for and paying for college.
John’s ability to save clients tens of thousands of dollars each year by sharing the fine details of the often labyrinthine financial aid system has earned him a Top 10 national ranking by the National Association of College Funding Advisors.
Parents typically seek out the College Planning Center’s services based on their concern as to how they’re going to be able to afford to send all of their kids to the colleges of their dreams without going broke. CPC distinguishes itself from other similar organizations with its in depth knowledge of taxes, investments, and financial aid strategies. He and his team aim to assemble a comprehensive plan to send all of their kids to the schools of their choice, not just the school that they thought fit the budget.
For over 13 years, Lennon has been a popular “Financial Aid Expert” speaking at universities and high schools throughout the region. He has been featured on CBS Radio outlet WPHT 1210 AM’s “The Big Talker” with Temple University for Financial Aid Guidance during their Virtual Education Fair. He is also author of the book “There is Absolutely No Reason to Pay Too Much For College.”
John regards it a privilege and pleasure to work with families, who are concerned about getting their kids through college in the most affordable manner. By assisting families with their college financial plans, John can still hold true to his passion of helping people and empower others to protect their hard-earned savings from the market and Uncle Sam.
