FinCap Friday: Say "OK" to the 401k

This week's FinCap Friday explores the idea that more people than ever before have become millionaires by taking advantage of their 401k accounts.

Many people may still wonder what exactly is a 401k plan, and how does it work? More importantly, how can young professionals use 401k plans wisely to become the next generation of millionaires? Learn about all of this and more in this week's episode of FinCap Friday:
