Robert Kiyosaki – The Rich Don’t Work for Money

Robert Kiyosaki reflects on how as a child he was sent to a public school comprised of mostly upper-class youth. He was jealous of the material goods his classmates possessed, such as new baseball gloves and bicycles. He decides he wants to start his own business and asks his best friend, Mike, to be his partner. They concoct a scheme to make money out of their neighbors’ lead toothpaste tubes by melting them down and using a nickel as a template. Kiyosaki’s poor father catches them making counterfeit nickels. He applauds their ingenuity, but informs them that their operation is actually illegal and won’t work. His father suggests that they talk to Mike’s dad if they truly want to learn how to be rich. Mike’s father had a reputation in town for his business acumen and talent with earning money. The two agree to meet with Mike’s father the following weekend. Their education with Mike’s father (aka “Rich Dad”) begins. He offers to help them learn to be rich if they agree to work at one of his superettes for 10 cents an hour, three hours every Saturday. Kiyosaki works for four shifts and finds the work boring and the pay disappointingly low. He decides he wants to quit. He confronts Mike’s dad and informs him that he has not held up his end of the deal – he hasn’t taught him anything. He blames Mike’s dad for paying him poorly and treating him unfairly. Mike’s dad explains to him that he has just taught him a lesson, a lesson that mirrors real life. He goes on to say that you can’t blame your employer for your economic troubles and that ultimately you are responsible for your own well-being. He summarizes his first lesson: ”The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.” Mike’s dad informs Kiyosaki that if he wants to keep learning from him, he will return the next week and continue to work at the superette – for no pay. Kiyosaki is angry and bewildered, but returns the next week nonetheless. After several more weeks of working for no pay, Mike’s dad shows up at the end of one of their shifts. He offers to pay them 25 cents an hour, but Kiyosaki can tell that he is testing them. He then offers to pay them up to $ 5 an hour and although Kiyosaki is tempted, he resists. Pleased, Mike’s dad agrees to teach them more about money. He advises them to lose their fear of not having money and their greed for large amounts of money. He explains...

Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki Endorses Multi Level Marketing

Robert Kiyosaki often refers to The CASHFLOW Quadrant, a conceptual tool which he developed to categorize the four major ways income is earned. Depicted in a diagram, this concept entails four groupings, split with two crossed lines (one vertical and one horizontal). In each of the four groups there is a letter representing a way in which an individual may earn income. The letters are as follows. E: Employee — Working for someone else. S: Self-employed or Small business owner — Where a person owns his own job and is his own boss. B: Business owner — A person who owns a business to make money; typically where the owner’s physical presence is not required. I: Investor — Investing money in order to receive a larger income in the future. For those on the left side of the divide (E and S), Robert Kiyosaki says that they may never obtain true wealth. Conversely, those on the right side of the divide (B and I) are supposedly following the only road to true wealth. Robert Kiyosaki also classifies the four main “asset” classes as means of gaining wealth.:[29] Businesses: Businesses that generate monthly cash flow that don’t require the owners physical presence. Real Estate: Real estate such as owning warehouses, small family homes, or apartment houses that generate monthly cash flow. Paper Assets: Investments such as stocks, bonds, hedge funds etc. Commodities: Gold, silver, iron ore, or copper that are used to hedge government’s mismanagement printing of the nations...

Robert Kiyosaki – Rich Dad Poor Dad, Cashflow Quadrant, Financial IQ, and The New Rules of Money

Free E-book about Internet Product Launches—–( Robert Kiyosaki – Rich Dad Poor Dad,) – What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad Poor Dad A large part of Kiyosaki’s teachings focus on what he calls “financial education” generating passive income by means of investment opportunities, such as real estate investments and businesses, with the ultimate goal of being able to support oneself by such investments alone and thus achieving true financial independence WITHOUT working for a paycheck. In tandem with this, Kiyosaki defines the term “assets” as things that generate cash inflow, such as stock dividends, rental properties, or businesses, and the term “liabilities” as things that use cash, such as houses, cars, and so on. Kiyosaki continuously argues that financial leverage is critically important in becoming rich, despite the inherent financial risks, repercussions, and pitfalls that come with it. Originally self-published before being picked up commercially to become a best seller, the central concept of the book is an anecdotal comparison of his “two fathers.” His “poor dad” was his biological father, who was highly educated and became Superintendent of the Hawaii State Department of Education but was poor. Contrasted with this is his (arguably fictitious, see “Criticism and controversy” section of this article) “rich dad,” his best friend’s father who became “the richest man in … Video Rating: 4 /...
