About John Gigliello

After a life-altering health issue at 39, my calling in life became clear: To share my knowledge of personal finance with people  who  are looking to make smart and responsible choices with their money. Only through education, action and accountability can you build the confidence and security you need to live a satisfying life. 

We encourage you to take part in the planning process to help secure your financial future and, in turn, feel optimistic and proud about your accomplishments. Knowing that I've provided education and a plan for my clients has allowed me to turn a personal challenge into a gratifying journey.

Invest In Knowledge PodcastInvest in Knowledge: A podcast about all things financial

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ John Gigliello has launched a monthly podcast to add to his education series line up. It is available on the podcast page of this website, or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

The two most recent episodes focus on College Planning. This is a two-part series because there is so much information to share on ways to cut college costs and understanding financial aid.

The price of college keeps climbing. In fact, the cost of a bachelor degree at some of the most popular private universities now exceeds $300,000!

The average cost of college in 2021 came in at $27,330 for in-state public schools and $55,800 for private universities, as reported by the college board. That is for ONE year of tuition, fees, room and board.

But you don’t have to sacrifice your own retirement nest egg to pay for your child’s dream school for fear that his/her life won’t be as rewarding.

This is a time for parents to be realistic about what they can afford and for students to give serious thought to the value of a college education and where it will get them in life.

Most important, an in-depth discussion requires families to sit down at the kitchen table and talk about money.
