More information about the IAFSCA, including a clip of “Broke and Famous”, a docudrama produced by VH1 starring Sarano Kelley and Willie Aames, is available at http://www.iafsca.com. “Broke & Famous” provides an inside look at a financially illiterate person’s life. In the first episode, IAFSCA Chairman Sarano Kelley, world-renowned business coach and creator of The Game, a personal improvement and business performance technology, coaches a once-rich and famous celebrity through an intense, multi-month period. The documentary shows the progress of former child star, Willie Aames (Eight is Enough, Charles in Charge, Bible Man), as he recovers -- both emotionally and financially – from a number of personal set backs.
