It’s an epidemic of huge proportions. More than 44 million Americans collectively owe a whopping $1.5 trillion in federal student-loan debt—a number that grows each year, second only to U.S. mortgage debt. New graduates entering the professional world face mounds of bills, a shrinking pool of employment opportunities, and the constant pressure that comes with both, which—along with a lack of financial expertise—keeps them from reaching for their dreams.
Tackling this issue head on is a new Crackle Original series, Going From Broke; airing exclusively on the free streaming service, it’s executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, Matador Content, and Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. Leading the charge to help millennials overcome their crippling debt is host and Chegg CEO Dan Rosensweig along with financial expert Danetha Doe. Together, they work with young people struggling to meet their obligations in expensive Los Angeles, teaching them how to change their habits, gain financial confidence, and become CEOs of their own lives. Danetha Doe is a Jamaican-Liberian American entrepreneur, journalist, and the creator of Money & Mimosas. Read by thousands of ambitious women from Dubai to San Francisco, her blog offers practical financial tips and provocative essays on creating the life of your dreams. Doe has been recognized for her leadership by the office of Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the Hong Kong Institute of CPAs and Fast Company; her work has been featured in such publications as Entrepreneur, Elle, and Cosmopolitan.
