As a nation, over 44 million young Americans today that are saddled with student and credit card debt totaling nearly 1.5 trillion dollars. Upon graduation, those entering the professional world face mounds of bills, a shrinking pool of employment opportunities, a lack of financial skills and a constant, crippling weight of oppression keeping them from reaching their dreams.
In this series, Chegg CEO Dan Rosensweig and financial expert Danetha Doe go one on one with young people living in pricey Los Angeles, which they thought would be The City of Dreams, to change their habits and gain financial confidence to become CEO of their own lives. Although they all come from different backgrounds and circumstances, the participants have one thing in common - extreme debt.
