Actor Donald Faison hosts this program that aims to raise young adults' fiscal consciousness and help them get their financial life on track as early as possible.

Insights from personal finance experts, authors, columnists, and most notably "hip-hop entrepreneur" Russell Simmons flesh out and reinforce the salient points.
