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 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.

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
