Class in session: Suze Orman offers crucial new lessons for challenging times.

In this special, Orman offers hard-hitting advice in her trademark no-nonsense style on how to navigate today's unsettling economic waters. The core of her message is an inspirational re-imagining of the American Dream – based on integrity and standing in your truth.

Throughout this financial master class, Orman equips viewers with timely, powerful, and often surprising advice for getting a grip on the most important financial fundamentals: understanding the opportunities and pitfalls of the real estate market, raising financially aware children, borrowing for college and paying off student loans, building a career, saving and investing, planning for retirement, and more.

As Orman puts it, "I am calling on you to re-educate yourself, to discover—perhaps for the very first time—what truly constitutes your new American Dream. You will learn what it means to stand tall in your truth today, so that you can realize your vision for tomorrow."
