There are tons of self-help books available that give great insight on college finance, but this one narrows things down to the important details and provides problem solving techniques for real world situations that college students face every semester.
College life can be a difficult beast to tame if you aren’t business savvy and lack the necessary financial tools to be successful. The information in this book will not only provide you with tips and tricks to keep you one step ahead of your classmates, but also help you earn a little money in the process. Your college handbook will tell you what the school wants you to know, but this book will give you a crash course on hidden secrets to success.
From finance to politics of the university, this book provides practical tips that have helped struggling students turn their lives around, the ordinary become the extraordinary, and the gifted soar. This book seeks to eliminate some of the under-preparedness of college students and decrease college drop-out rates. Whether you’re a high school junior, a senior shopping colleges, or a full-fledged university student, you’ll find this book to be an enjoyable read and a valuable asset while matriculating through school.
Each section of this book begins with a feel-good, inspirational story that softens some of the technical terminology and concepts that are touched upon in the chapters. At the very heart of these excerpts are life stories (some true, some fictional) of the following celebrities: (1) Kevin Spacey and Jim Sturgess, (2) Howard Schultz and Richard Desmond, (3) Stanley Lieber, (4) John Paul Dejoria, (5) Jake Gyllenhaal, (6) Christopher Gardner, (7) Karen Lutz, (8) Walt Elias Disney, (9) Sean Connery, and lastly, (10) Tea Leoni.
