You could win $50,000!!
Did Suze Orman get your attention yet? The Money Lady does not take money issues lightly and has no qualms about bribing you into taking your financial life more seriously, too. With her new original series, Americaâ€™s Money Class with Suze Orman, premiering Monday, January 9 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN, she does just that.
Every Monday night Suze provides essential tools and tips to help viewers get on their feet and take the necessary steps to get their money in control. She goes in depth with couples and individuals who are struggling with money issues ranging from financial infidelity to whether to claim bankruptcy and answers questions from the studio audience and via video conference. At the end of the six episode series viewers will have a chance to win up to $50,000 by logging on to Oprah.com and passing a final exam.
“People donâ€™t pay attention to the most important thing in their lives. Theyâ€™re not paying attention to their money,” laments Suze. “How could I get those on board that every time they think about money they get that queasy little feeling in their stomach or they start thinking, oh my God, I canâ€™t deal with it, itâ€™s just like my life?”
As she brainstormed ways of getting people to really concentrate on their money, Suze circled back to the all-powerful motivator – money.
“What could I do to involve those people into one of the greatest classrooms that has ever been presented on television? It was my idea to say, guess what, letâ€™s take my money and let me give $50,000 for a first prize and $5,000 away for five different people. So thatâ€™s $75,000,” she explains.
Not only will cash prizes be awarded to the top students of Suze’s Money Class, guidebooks and other materials, like a will and trust kit, an insurance kit and a money newsletter, will be available for viewers to download for free on oprah.com.
“All of those are given to the consumer or the viewer at home just merely for watching because,” says Suze, “the goal of this show is to not only educate you about the money you have and the money you donâ€™t have, but also to give you the tools to make your own new American dream to come back to be whatever reality that would be for you at this point in time.”
