The $100m Rag to Riches Man: Steve Harvey

Comedian, actor, talk show host and best selling author, Steve Harvey has had some ups and downs and now the comedian is opening up about being homeless at the beginning of his career. His rags-to-riches tale is one of integrity, ingenuity and success.

"Everybody has a moment when they turn back, when you say to yourself, 'This is too much,' I had it on several occasions."
