Gooding covers the importance of developing good saving habits early, types of debt available to students, wise use of debt, the dangers of too much debt and high interest debt/payday lenders, how credit scores work, and how to control spending through tracking. budgeting and goal setting. Gooding suggests students look to their communities for support and mentorship, while he exposes the myth of rock stars, athletes and actors who sell the false image of overnight success.

Students who do not receive this message early may find themselves carrying too much debt, at risk of dropping out of college, or otherwise deferring their dreams. Young people from unbanked families are especially at risk.
