Rich dad poor dad book
Its Fourth of July 2011 and I didn’t really accomplish much however I did read Robert Kiyosaki book called before you quit your job. He has around 20 books out. I really like his books. After hours of reading and watching his videos on YouTube I kind of have another view of him. I discovered the seminars that use his rich dad poor dad name are not actually him. He apparently licensed this to a company that uses his name. I watched a video on YouTube of a popular news show which did a segment on this exact issue. The seminars cost $500.00 they do not give any real value advice on making money. One of the tactics is a lease option which requires you to convince a potential home seller to sell to you at a later date with a price you set today. A professional was interviewed and asked about the lease option tactic. He said no one is stupid enough to do it and if you do find someone it will take you forever. This seminar company basically is selling the customers who already paid $500.00 an expensive package which they didn’t go into. But it cost thousands of dollars.
Also, as I was reading, I came across the fact that Robert doesn’t tell you how to make money in a step by step way. He just gives general advice. I do like his quadrant and understood it much better from his video demonstrations. It’s easier to understand from a video versus reading it with words. Something gives me a suspicion that Robert could be a fraud based on doing business with some shady company that he says is in a contract with him. I heard Robert mention he has 1400 apartments, he owns oil rigs, something along those lines. But he doesn’t mention this really in the books that I can remember.
Overall I find his book inspirational and motivational. His quadrant is genius.
