Big Picture: What happens when you blow through your grant money in the first year of college? You have to get real creative, real fast—as Kevin found out firsthand. After doing some last-minute maneuvering (when an injury cut his pro-athlete dreams short) to get into college and find the funds to pay for it, bad money management put him in danger of not being able to continue past his freshman year.

But then he went full throttle—flipping late-night burgers and living in an RV to save up cash—and managed to get a degree that totally reshaped his future. And now he actually advises other people on how to manage their money. (Yep, he basically did a complete 180.) Watch the video for the full scoop.
