MAKING YOUR MARK, 9TH EDITION, BY LISA FRASER

is the resource behind our high-impact student success programs, faculty and staff training seminars, and college effectiveness consulting. Our best-selling college success book helps students develop high-performance strengths, self-managment skills, and long-term behavioral change through our concept: Me Inc and the 8 Cornerstones of High Performance. 

Our students find your text very user friendly, easy to read, and down to earth. I’ve had a number of students come back a few years after they have graduated and tell me how much Making Your Mark made a difference in not just their academics, but in their lives.
