An unexpected arrival in my mailbox, FilmWorks Entertainment's 401(k) Magic is a 45-minute financial doc serving up advice from nationally recognized author and keynote speaker Steve Mazda on how to build a fortune for the future on an average paycheck. With the subtitle "timeless life lessons for a financially secure future," 401(k) Magic is a breezy, entertaining and informative doc that benefits from centering around a guy with a "wealth" of knowledge and an ability to make that knowledge accessible for those who don't always understand "numbers." 

Mazda set up some of the first 401(k) plans in the 1980s and had a key role in saving the plans from congressional extinction. To this day, Mazda is a familiar figure on Capitol Hill as he continues to lobby on behalf of the everyday worker and employer for better Social Security, savings and retirement benefits. 

Mazda is considered a "millionaire maker," but not in that godawful infomercial way that leaves you rolling your eyes and dialing toll-free numbers for badly copied manuals filled with paint-by-numbers "get rich" advice. Mazda's instructions are almost frighteningly simple, but he seems to truly get that he's got to reach out to people, especially young people, everywhere in an effort to bring this information to the masses. To do so, he's created simple and fun lessons with basic yet incredibly relevant information.
