Overview


This isn’t your father’s personal finance book.  The way we currently save and invest is confusing, frustrating, and quite simply doesn’t work.  Get ready for a personal finance book that is actually unique.  Get ready for financial strategies that you’ve never seen or heard before.  Get ready to transform your financial life in less than a week!
 
Robert Pagliarini has taken budgeting, investing, insurance, and retirement planning—subjects that most of us find stressful and overwhelmingly complex—and made it approachable and even manageable through his unsinkable optimism and relentless simplification process.  He says, “We’re going to take the pie-in-the-sky theories and turn them into bite-size pieces that you can and will be able to implement in your life immediately.” 
 
THE SIX DAY FINANCIAL MAKEOVER does a lot of things really well, but I’ll just tell you about three.  First and foremost it actually provides advice—yes, real advice.  Not wishy-washy “maybe you should do this” or “it all depends on your situation” nonsense (what Robert calls “financial fog”).  Second, it has an action bias.  No, not really a bias, more like a mantra.  Implement, implement, implement is the theme in every chapter and on every page (there’s even a patent-pending free web site at sixdayfinancialmakeover.com readers can use to help them take the advice they read and incorporate it into their lives).  Three, it is full of brand-new, never seen before financial shortcuts and strategies.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One
Do You Need a Financial Makeover?

Do you want more from life? Are you working harder and putting in longer hours but don't feel financially secure or satisfied with your progress? Many of us are making more money but we still don't feel that we've made it. What do you think about when you're alone? When the phones aren't ringing and the television is off, what occupies your thoughts? What questions or concerns do you have just before falling asleep at night? In those quiet moments when you are able to reflect, are you satisfied with your financial situation or do you yearn for more?

Regardless of your present situation, you can achieve the life you've always dreamed of. It doesn't matter who you are or where you live. It doesn't matter if you had a privileged childhood of abundance or one of hardship and scarcity. With this book, you can improve your life and chart your own destiny in six short days.

This chapter is your wake-up call. Do you feel that you are maximizing your potential? Do you feel that you are living the life that you've always wanted? If you are financially frustrated, insecure, or just plain scared, you can feel financially secure and realize all of your dreams with a financial makeover.

Should I read this chapter?

True False

1. I thought I would have a more fulfilled life than I do right now.

2. I think making money is the most important goal to have.

3. I don't know what it would take to have a balanced life.

4. I don't know why financial independence is a worthwhile goal.

5. I'd like to learn about the incredible opportunity I
have to improve my finances and my life through a financial makeover.

If you answered any of these questions TRUE, you should read this chapter.

What Is a Financial Makeover?

Maybe you're not sure what to expect from a financial makeover. That's fair. It's good to be a little skeptical. If you're familiar with fashion makeover, you know the successful ones don't stop with a facial or a new wardrobe. Successful makeovers require a total transformation--from head to toe and inside and out. Likewise, your financial makeover won't stop with just a budget or an investment plan. Your financial transformation will include all of the critical areas of your financial life--creating a spending and savings plan, protecting assets, investing wisely, risk management, insurance, estate planning, and much, much more.

Over the next six days, your financial makeover will strip away everything that is not working--maybe you're spending too much, sabotaging your own success, taking too much risk, not investing wisely, or leaving yourself and your loved ones financially exposed--and replace it with a solid foundation from which you can immediately start to see success and feel a sense of confidence. Your financial makeover will also maximize what you're already doing well. If you have powerful and inspiring goals, are saving diligently, and investing well, your Six-Day Financial Makeover will help you maximize and optimize your strengths.

I will walk with you, step by step, throughout the six-day transformation. Together we will turn the complexities of budgeting, investing, insurance, and estate planning into something understandable and practical. We're going to take the "pie-in-the-sky" theories and turn them into bite-sized pieces that you can implement in your life immediately.

    I Also Recommend:

    Awesome Resource!

    I am a fan of Pagliarini's work and I highly recommend this book for a number of reasons. First, the book is timely and informative; Secondly, the information in the book allows you to write your own chapters for success by doing the exercises and creating the life you want; and finally you are able to put your own plan into action in your own life. Pagliarini has a really good conversational style to his writing. It's not like a school textbook... it's real life. You'll learn how to set goals and you'll know when you've achieved them. You will learn what to look for and what to avoid when it comes to insurance and investments. You will be able to seperate your wants from needs. Yes, I highly recommend this book on finance as I highly recommend his book, "The Other 8 Hours" for its tackling the subject of time and life management.

    it really works!

    This book is a must read for anyone that is looking for a way to feel comfortable about their fiances. I am currently a college student making about $1,400 a month and still attending college. Before this book, I was using credit cards to live 'above my own means.' But by reading this I have started to save for retirement, invest some money and still pay the bills and do all of it on just my small income. It doesn't matter how much you make, but with this book, Robert Pagliarini will show you how to maximize what you do make. I highly recommend it!

    A lot of Helpful Practical Strategies

    My wife and I are very much into financial planning for our future. We've spent a lot of time and money getting things in order so I could not help but wonder to myself, do I really need this book? Is what we've done so far way beyond the contents of this book? Five minutes into it, the answer was clearly no. Six-Day Financial Makeover has very sound, practical advice for every investor regardless of net worth. After reading the first 20 pages I created a list of follow up questions for my advisor. DO NOT! I repeat, DO NOT leave all the details to someone else. Pick up this book and do your own due diligence. Make sure you've dotted every 'I' and crossed every 'T'.

    Love it!!!

    This book is the BEST personal finance book I¿ve ever read¿without a question. It is totally different from other personal finance and investing books out there (and I should know since I¿ve pretty much read them all). What makes this book different is that it¿s not filled with information. Instead, it is filled with how-to advice. It¿s like having an expert financial advisor sit across the table from you. This guy knows how to simplify things to make it easy to implement the advice. I can¿t wait for his next book!
