The Start-up of You Author Ben Casnocha Gets Ringing Endorsement from Tennessee Tech

9780307888907A note of appreciation from Allen Mullis, First Year Read Director at Tennessee Tech University:

“We wanted students, especially our incoming freshmen, to understand the importance of taking control of their career now by getting engaged not only within their major, but to also establish interdisciplinary engagement as well. The “Start-Up of You” helps identify tools and ideas for students to incorporate into their collegiate experience to help achieve their career goals.”
