More About the Author

Financial security expert, Pamela Yellen, is founder and President of Bank On Yourself.

Pamela has worked with over 40,000 financial advisors since 1990, helping them build their businesses. Over the course of those years, she investigated over 450 financial products, tools, concepts and methods that were touted as sure bets for growing wealth. Most turned out to be not even worth the paper they were printed on. All this learning the hard way came at a costly financial and emotional price.

Disappointed with the results they were getting when managing their investment program themselves, Pamela and her husband Larry hired three of the country's top investment and planning firms in succession over a period of a decade to manage their retirement account.

These companies were always on the lists of the country's top-ten financial advisors and asset managers. They all charged hefty fees and all three of them lost Pamela and Larry money during a period that included the longest-running bull market in history!

"I began to wonder whether a blindfolded monkey throwing darts could have done as well, or better. My husband, Larry, and I would be in the same boat as so many Americans today--wondering if we'd ever be able to retire, and what we'd have to go without to do it--had we not finally stumbled across Bank On Yourself, which puts a unique twist on a safe and proven financial asset that's grown in value every year for more than 160 years. More than 500,000 families already use it."

The Bank On Yourself method lets you grow your wealth every single year--even when the markets are tumbling. It also lets you bypass banks and other financial institutions and become your own source of financing for your cars, vacations, a college education, business expenses and more. This method of making major purchases even beats directly paying cash, because your money continues growing as though you had never taken it out.

The Bank On Yourself concept can provide a cash cushion and peace of mind to help you weather unexpected medical expenses, disability, job loss, or other emergencies. You don't have to fill out any prying credit applications. You can skip some payments on your loans and no one is going to make intimidating phone calls, repossess your things, or foreclose on you. No late fees and no black marks on your credit report.

Pamela has been interviewed on every major TV and radio network and has written numerous articles and been featured in thousands of publications and websites, including Fox News, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, AARP, the Associated Press, Aging today and many others. She is a professional speaker who has addressed more than 1,000 audiences throughout the US, Canada, Asia and Europe.

Her latest book, The Bank On Yourself Revolution: Fire Your Banker, Bypass Wall Street, and Take Control of Your Own Financial Future, is a New York Times best-seller. Her first book, Bank On Yourself: The Life-Changing Secret to Growing and Protecting Your Financial Future, is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Amazon.com, USA Today and Business Week bestseller. Pamela has also co-authored several books, including Zero-Resistance Selling, which she co-authored with Maxwell Maltz, M.D., author of the best-seller Psycho-Cybernetics (more than 30 million copies sold worldwide).

Pamela was born in Buffalo, New York, and has lived in Sarasota, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay area. She graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in psychology. Pamela and her husband Larry currently live outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. They enjoy theatre and the arts, hiking, bird watching, traveling, gourmet cooking, working out (Pamela can leg press 200 pounds!), reading, spoiling their two grandkids, and are involved in supporting numerous charitable causes.

Ten percent of all author royalties are donated to educational not-for-profits, such as The Smile Train, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, The Nature Conservancy, Heifer International and Hawk Watch.

I read Pamela's first book in 2012 after doing some research on the Bank on Yourself or Infinite Banking concept that was brought to my attention in late 2011. I had met with a financial adviser in 2011 to discuss our finances and retirement. After reading 1st book, my wife and I decided to contact a BOY adviser in our home state to open a policy for each of us. Our adviser was really cordial, professional and helped us start the policy in early 2013. It was easy to understand and the concept make sense to me. I am pretty familiar with money, finances, stocks, futures,etc., so I got the gist of how this works.

One year later we received our first Annual Statement and we both are pleased. Our cash values did actually exceed Guarantee and Projected amounts for the end of 1st year. Everything looked good and we are proud to be part of this BOY Revolution! We have a clear picture of what our money will be in the future -- short and long term. As planned we will use our funds (Cash value) for investments, auto purchases and expensive trips! Of course, retirement planning is our main goal and we are well on our way!

Earlier this year, we received Pamela's latest book..."The Bank On Yourself Revolution", from our BOY Adviser as a gift. I read the book in less than 2 days and it is even more informative than her first book. It is well written -- explains more of the concept in detail and really shows what the BOY process can do by her cleverly using the Boat, mast, sail and rudder analogy. There are also charts and graphs in the book to further explain how the Bank on Yourself concept when fully utilized can really help financially during your "living" years and help during "retirement".

This book is the only book you need!

Not only is it packed with useful and on-point information, but it is a fascinating read for a book about personal finance. I found myself highlighting and bookmarking so many pages that I now consider it a "reference book" on the subject. I especially noted the “Mythbusters” scattered throughout the book.

Pamela Yellen's first Amazon.com best-selling book, "Bank On Yourself", was released five years ago. It is still a great resource for understanding the basic concept, and it is full of stories from people who have been banking on themselves, proving that it works as advertised, every time it is tried. But this sequel stands out for its emphasis on the development of the concept details.

Have you always followed Wall Street’s conventional wisdom when it comes to investing? You may not be so sure about their advice after you read Chapter 2.

Are you stuffing lots of your income into your company’s 401(k) plan? You might decide to quit putting your money in “jail” after you check out Chapter 5.

Do you think it’s too late to take advantage of the BOY concept because you are in your late 50’s or older? You really need to read Chapter 10.

Because this concept is so powerful, and it will allow you to grow your wealth without risk, there are lots of folks who don’t like it. They write negative reviews here and put up negative web sites. All I can say is that BOY must be working for lots of people, or those folks wouldn’t bother. (They probably didn't read this book, either.)

In all my decisions over the years this has to be the Best decision I have ever made! Bank On Yourself is the Best advice I have ever received! Pamela really explains how this concept works! This program is the Only one I've seen that Literally gives every family in America the opportunity to be financially free! I started my program about 22 months ago and have more than tripled my cash value of previous programs and am using that to pay down my debts - And earning interest on my loans!

Every family - (person) has the ability to benefit from this program! I recommend it to Everyone! You have to check this out for yourselves! You will kick yourself for NOT checking this out! No matter your age, or income IF I can do this? Anyone can!

Format: Hardcover
The Bank On Yourself Revolution updates and improves upon the first Bank On Yourself book by providing more specific examples of this concept. You will definitely find yourself identifying with at least one of the real life examples in this book of people using the Bank On Yourself concept to achieve their financial goals. Pamela Yellen has made it even easier to "get" the concept and learn to finance and recapture the entire cost of big ticket items like cars, vacations, college educations and other debt, while never taking away from your guaranteed, safe savings and your predictable retirement income. Pamela also shows that people who thought they were too old to Bank on themselves can in fact use this powerful concept.. Only traditional bankers and wall street types won't find valuable information mixed with humor and keen insights in this book. Viva La Revolution!

I am not a Certified Bank on Yourself agent. I have been a licensed life insurance agent for over forty-five years. I have been published four times in a national insurance trade magazine, and I have been answering questions on life insurance and retirement questions for over ten years at AllExperts.com. I share all of this as background as to my respect for what Pamela Yellen has written.
Of all the authors that I have read over the years, Ms Yellen has made the clearest factual presentation of what Whole Life insurance is capable of doing. While BOY is not the right program for everyone, as Ms Yellen says herself, for those who practice it, this is the safest way to accumulate funds for future purchases and retirement. The principles she teaches work. And her sailboat analogy is the best explanation of the BOY design I have ever read.
