Congratulations! You have four years of tuition, room and board stashed away in your 529 plan, and your child hasn’t even graduated from high school yet. Now you can breathe easily, right? Well … maybe, maybe not.
I’m big into rowing – I’ve competed in quite a few boat races as the coxswain. For non-rowers, it’s pronounced “cox-en” and as Business Insider puts it I’m the “motionless member in the back of the boat.” But don’t let that fool you – even though I’m not powering the boat, I’m playing an important role steering it and directing my teammates.
