Get Money Smart

Simple Lessons to Kickstart Your Financial Confidence & Grow Your Wealth by Robert Pagliarini, Ph.D., CFP®, EA


Get Money Smart


I recently finished and published my fourth personal finance book. My last book, The Sudden Wealth Solution, was aimed at a very specific (and narrow) target.

For my new book, you’ll see that I took a different approach. In fact, I didn’t even want to write it…

A couple of years ago I was working with a 22-year-old client who received a large lawsuit settlement. He admitted that he didn’t know very much about money, taxes, or investing and he was nervous about being responsible for so much money.

He was thirsty for knowledge and asked for a recommendation for a simple book that would give him a brief introduction to the world of personal finance. “No problem,” I said, assuming there were dozens of great options from which to choose.

Well, a week later I could still not find anything even remotely close to what I knew he needed. Instead, we decided to have weekly money coaching sessions where I would take a concept and do my best to explain it as simply as possible.

I enjoyed doing this so much I decided to write a book based on these lessons. That book is Get Money Smart: Simple Lessons to Kickstart Your Financial Confidence & Grow Your Wealth.
