What happened when business-motivational speaker and self-made millionaire James Malinchak was picked up by an ABC television crew, placed on an airplane with no money, credit cards, cell phone, laptop or watch, and was whisked off to an impoverished neighborhood, where he had to survive on $44.66 cents for a week?
The hour-long episode features Malinchak leaving his current lifestyle in search of real-life heroes who are making a difference in their local community. He ultimately reveals himself as a millionaire and rewards them with a portion of his own money to further their cause.

A big part of his inspiration comes from his sister Vicki who died from a brain tumor. James says, “Having the chance to spend quality brother and sister time with my sister Vicki during the last few months of her life was the greatest blessing God has given me in my life.
