John Barada III is the President and Managing Member of CPC, LLC. As a long time financial industry veteran (46 years), John has worked in sales, agency, regional, and home office management positions. Over the last 10 years, John found himself working more and more frequently with families that were facing two challenges: sending their children to college and planning for retirement. Many parents are concerned that funding their children’s college will impact their future retirement date.
As a Certified College Funding Specialist and a Financial Advisor, John and his team guide parents and students through FAFSA, college profiles, and admissions requirements. All of which take into consideration John’s extensive knowledge of finances, investments and insurance accounts and how to properly use them.
Aid availability differs by institution, financial need, and student qualifications. Combing through each college and finding this information can be extremely taxing on the family. John has attained several tools to allow each family the ability to sort through the most prudent information quickly.
John has a family of his own and has already struggled through many of the issues this generation is facing. He worked through the college consortium with his two sons, thus giving him personal knowledge of the frustration and questions that occur. He is continuing this mission by working with his own grandchildren.
College Planning Consultants, LLC, is John’s way of taking that frustration away from others and ensuring that our next generation doesn’t have to worry about missing out because of finances. From attending their #1 college choice to the parents still affording a decent and well-subsidized retirement. His firm works toward making it all possible.
