THCC95 – How to Be More Successful in College Interview with Brian Robben, Founder of www.TakeYourSuccess.com and Author “How To College”

Congratulations! Your college manual is now available.
Yes, Brian Robben has written the college manual you need. “It’s for any college student before they are entering or already in college,” describes Robben. He took everything he himself learned in college, and advice he was constantly asked for by his friends, and then compiled it into an 80 page manual.
“The reason I wrote the book is because I felt a ton of college students had this misconception that they have to choose between having fun or locking themselves in the library trying to ensure their future success,” says Robben. This manual teaches you how to have the best of both worlds!
