Unlock Your Potential: The Diversion Center’s Mentorship Curriculum

“How to Be Successful With or Without a College Degree”

In today’s rapidly evolving job market, a college degree is no longer the only path to a successful and fulfilling career. For many, it has become synonymous with significant debt and unfulfilled expectations. Derek Collins, a seasoned entrepreneur and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, presents a guide that equips individuals with the tools and mindset needed to thrive, regardless of their educational background.

Drawing from his own experiences of overcoming unemployment, addiction, and insecurity, Collins offers a compelling narrative that resonates with anyone feeling directionless or overwhelmed. With a Master’s Degree in Education and a background in psychology, he faced numerous challenges after graduation. From selling bottled water at freeway exits to engaging in various side hustles, Collins’ journey is a testament to resilience and ingenuity.

His book, “How to Be Successful With or Without a College Degree,” distills the essential lessons and strategies he discovered on his path to success. These insights enabled him to hire staff and establish multiple outpatient facilities, providing vital counseling services in substance abuse, anger management, and personal development.
