My Guest on the Show…


Robert was the guy in his econ class in college sitting in the back with his laptop open and updating his blog. Today he blogs full-time on his site, The College Investor, which has over 1 million visitors per month and generates 7 figures in revenue per year.

But Robert didn’t start there, did he?

Instead, Robert graduated college and went to work for all places – Target. He actually worked his way up as store manager while all along he was building this “little blog” on the side. The story in between all of this is what we talk about on today’s show!
