POSTED BY Jagoinvestor ON June 20, 2014 COMMENTS (23)

Day before yesterday we released video of our Design your financial life 2.0 and we had influx of mails from all over asking for more details about the program. We are so touched by the excitement level that some of you hold in your heart. Below is the video which explains what this program is all about

Why we conduct Design your financial life Program?

We did our first Design your financial life 1.0 workshop in Pune. It took a lot of effort for us to design the overall design of the program as we were doing it for the first time. I wanted my wife to participate and so I asked her to participate in the program and Manish did the same at his end. I still remember the first reaction I got from my wife, she said, “What will I do in your boring personal finance program?”.

I told my wife I promise the program will be fun and I extended my heartfelt invitation to her. Finally my wife said yes to me. I told her be a good participant and asked her to really work on her financial life. On the other end, Manish was struggling to enroll his wife into the program and somehow he also managed to convince his wife. This was MOMENT of joy for us, we still feel it is the best thing we ever did.

Finally we got both of them into the program and they enjoyed each and every part of the event. They were happy to see how much our readers love us and how fun personal finance can be. I can never forget my wife taking notes during her participation and after we returned back she got a lot more committed with her money. Same was with Manish, his wife made a commitment to start her own venture and her vision is still alive and she is working on it.

We really want investor to dedicate some committed time for their financial life so that they can work on their financial life. We want individuals and couples to get on same page when it comes to money management, we really want to make personal finance interesting and fun and there are very few who give dedicated time to their financial life.

Why this transition from Design your financial life 1.0 to 2.0

We started with one day workshop but now after working with a few hundred investors we realized that the one day event needs something more to it. Our intention is not to get fee from investors, we want their full commitment and we want them to produce some amazing results in their financial life. To produce tangible results we are moving from 1.0 to 2.0. It is no more a workshop, it is now a 12 weeks program that will help all kind of investors in designing their financial life.

    I just came back from the Design Your Financial Life 2.0 Workshop conducted in Bangalore. After more than a decade of work experience, I can safely say this is one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended. Both Nandish & Manish squeeze in so much value during those hours (9AM – 6PM). Even the tea & lunch breaks were so sharp.

    The biggest takeaways for me was getting awareness and facing your fears.

    I’ve been an investor for nearly a decade. I respect money a lot and thought I knew everything there is to know about personal finance. This workshop made me realize there is still a lot to be learnt. Personal finance is not just about investment products, knowing which one to buy, when to buy/sell, etc. It’s much more than that and this workshop summarizes every aspect in a beautiful way.

    I also got a personalized experience thanks to the individual and group exercises that were conducted throughout the workshop. Some of them were formal; others were informal in the form of questions they will ask during the presentation. The more I participated and “listened” to what others were also saying, the more I learnt. These exercises helped me confront my fears in the area of personal finance.

    I believe that if you get 10x times the value of any workshop you attend, cost of the workshop is basically free. And it all begins with having an open mind.

    Thanks Manish & Nandish!

    Best Regards,

    1. Thanks for this great review Karthikeyan 🙂 .. We had great time !

    Hello Manish and Nandish,

    I am a beginner in the investment world. I have invested in MF, Stocks with the little knowledge I have by reading myself. In search of knowledge on investing I came across

    To understand the finance world better, I am looking forward to attend – “Design your financial life 2.0” (Bangalore).

    Before booking the slot, I wanted to understand few things in detail:
    1. What would be the timing for one day (27th July) offline session and venue detail in Bangalore?
    2. How are the online session planed?
    3. Should I go for basic version or full program?

    I tried using the option “If you are too confused or have some issues, please setup a call with us using this link” – but somehow clicking on the link is not working for me.

    Kindly help me on the queries above.


    1. Hi Prashant

      Please call me back on the same number I called you

    Hello Manish/Nandish,
    I am a resident in Mumbai.

    I am not a beginner at investing. I have done and am still doing investments in MFs (SIPs), stocks, PPF, RDs and FDs and am still doing it on goal basis.
    Do you think this workshop of yours would help me more than what I am already doing ?
    Also this 12 weeks programme means all 12 Sundays we have to attend the workshop at the specified location in Mumbai.

    Rachana Meher

    1. No Rachana

      The offline event is just 1 day , the 12 weeks program is just the structure , You only have to come for 1 day for the event, rest everything is online

    2. Nandish says:


      Thanks for leaving your comment. We are happy to know that you have been taking some actions in your financial life.

      The workshop has some designed set of conversations which are thought provoking and they instill right kind of commitment in an investor. It is possible that certain information may not be new for you but I can assure one thing and that is you will gain some valuable insights from the program or from some group activities.

      Also you dont have to attend for all 12 weeks. ONLY for workshop we meet and rest of the program will have online structure to it.

      I will be giving you call for further conversation.

    In the table, (which is after FAQ), basic version is priced at Rs. 5000/-.
    But when you actually select, it is listed at Rs. 6000/- ?????
    This is contradiction.
    Please clarify.

    1. Nandish says:

      Anand it does not become 6k. 12.36% Tax is applicable on fees which gets added to the ticket you select.

    2. Anand

      Its 6k only . Not 5k , I have corrected it .

      Service tax is extra
