Hi. My name is Robert Pagliarini. I know . . . it’s long and hard to pronounce. It’s a great name to have for search engines and when making reservations at Italian restaurants, but that’s where the benefits end. It’s pronounced PAL-YUH-REE-NEE, as in “your pal, Pagliarini.”
I am obsessed with making the most of my other 8 hours to create an ideal life. (Do I have an “ideal” life? No. Am I working on it? Absolutely.) I’m also obsessed with sharing what I know, inspiring others to achieve their ideal life, and learning from others who are improving their lives.
For a guy who hated English class, I’m thrilled to have written The Other 8 Hours, the #1 national bestselling personal finance book, The Six-Day Financial Makeover, and the popular ebook, Plan Z: How to Survive the 2009 Financial Crisis (and even live a little better).
I love sharing my ideas. I’ve appeared as a financial expert on 20/20, Good Morning America, Dr. Phil, ABC Morning News, NPR’s Marketplace and in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, Money Magazine and many others.
I write a weekly column for CBS called Your Other 8 Hours at www.yourother8hours.com.
I am a Certified Financial Planner™ and have a master’s degree in financial services. I am the president of Pacifica Wealth Advisors, a boutique wealth management firm recently ranked one of the top in the nation.
I live with my wife and daughter in Orange County, California. On most Sundays you’ll find us at Saddleback Church, and occasionally at Disneyland.

Our forefathers recognized the importance of self-interest in the Declaration of Independence where they emphasized our unalienable right to pursue happiness. Greed is good not just for your own life but for others as well. By elevating your life, you can radically elevate your family’s life, your community, and yes,… Read more.
