Use coupons for price reductions. Don’t miss out on a great deal--- compliments of a coupon---when you’re forced to purchase a brand new textbook. Sites like RetailMeNot.com and PromoCodes.com list the latest coupons and special offers by several major retailers that sell textbooks and other college supplies. A quick search is all it takes to find some attractive discounts on your next purchase.  Coupons are a good idea if you have any college courses that require you to purchase the latest edition of a book. Just be prepared for some serious sticker shock. It’s not uncommon for a new college textbook to cost $100 or more.

Mistake 3: Having a negative or arrogant attitude. 


Seldom in life does anyone rise to the top without paying their dues first. No matter what level you’re at in your career, your job will probably include some form of menial tasks. “Chances are many of the tasks that make you mutter, ‘Why do I have to do this?’ won’t go away with your first (or second, or third) promotion,” Winters says. “Suck it up and realize that everything is a learning opportunity. Then, look forward to the parts of your job that you enjoy.”

Fashion business veteran Gerard Murray has seen success both as an independent business owner with the School of Hard Knocks clothing line and with large corporations. After taking a brief hiatus from the industry, he resurfaced in the college licensing business as the president of Final IV Enterprises LLC, parent company of Tradition Ever Since.

With Tradition, Murray has carved out a niche by creating lifestyle apparel for HBCU’s. After severing ties with New Era in 2009, Murray and his partners—Carol Callender-Murray and Tim Gray—decided to take the independent route and the gamble has paid off. Tradition booked $800,000 in sales this past year and the company is projected to double that number in 2012. BlackEnterprise.com caught up with Murray, who shared his five tips on how to make it as an independent in the fashion business. —Branden J. Peters
