You don’t go from being a dirt-poor river guide to multimillionaire without a great deal of help. In my first book, Rule #1 , I talked a bit about the Wolf, the guy I almost drowned in the Grand Canyon. He had a tremendous impact on me.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
