Join Alex as he motivates and advises Evander Holyfield, Ryan Lochte, Nicole Eggert, and Brian Dunkleman on how to reduce their crushing debt, repair their reputations, and launch new business careers so they can re-charge their financial futures. After years of living large, will they be willing to listen to their new coach?
