The College Investor, with Robert Farrington


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Robert Farrington. When he was 16, Robert got a job at Target. As he headed off to college, he kept that job and continued to work his way up the store’s leadership ladder. Robert decided to stick around after he graduated because the work was easy, fun and paid well as he ultimately became store manager. Meanwhile, on the side, he created an online platform to help college students. Life was good until things took a turn when Robert’s family values clashed with his job’s demands, requiring him to work weekends and holidays– including every Black Friday! Missing out on time with his young children wasn’t aligning with what mattered most to him. That’s when Robert made the unexpected move to turn his side hustle, initially meant to stay just that, into his full-time gig.

Robert is a Millennial Money Expert and Founder of The College Investor. He is on a mission to help millennials get out of student loan debt and start building wealth for their future. He also helps parents make smart choices about college financing options and navigating the complex world of paying for school.
