In 2005, Maya Frost and her husband sold everything and left their suburban American lifestyle behind in order to have an adventure abroad.

, has just been published and we'll be talking about the affordable, accessible, and stunningly advantageous options they stumbled upon that any student can leverage to get an outrageously relevant global education. As a former ESL teacher she's spent the last few years paying attention to the ways in which we educate our children.
Maya's book is intended to help other families take advantage of the lessons they learned and the loopholes they discovered. She shows parents how to completely avoid the angst and expense of the traditional college-prep process and give their kids a personalized, relevant and exhilarating global education that doesn't cost a fortune. Maya introduces us to savvy U.S. students who are gliding into the global economy at 19 or 20 with a four-year degree, sizzling 21st-century skills, a blazing sense of direction--and NO DEBT.
Although she lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Maya is spending time in the US this summer to promote her book and she's joining us today from New York.
