We blindfolded our subject, Adam Shepard, in his apartment, drove him up to 16 hours away to a random city, gave him $25 and nothing else, and left him with the challenge to survive–and thrive–for 30 days.

A young man with loads of promise, he seemed to have lost a bit of hunger and this was an opportunity for him to test his credence and challenge his perspective.
What he found, however, was much different than what he anticipated. Hard work and saving your money are one thing. But what if the American Dream isn’t just about your own pursuit?
