When I first started out in business in 2003 I was very quickly introduced to personal development as the ultimate key to success and consequently to Robert Kiyosaki’s book Rich Dad Poor Dad.
In the book Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! Robert Kiyosaki teaches life lessons he learnt from his highly educated biological father who was poor; and what he learnt from his friend’s father who was uneducated and wealthy.
These were lessons that I could relate to coming from an African background where education is highly rated and the myth propagated that with a good education comes a great job and a good financial life. Which by now we all know is not true considering the number of people who are self-made millionaires who are dropouts!
As a business owner struggling or not it really is beneficial for you to read this book and examine your perceptions and hopefully get solutions to whatever cash flow problems you might be experiencing.
So my question to you is, isn’t it time that you get yourself the right education and by this I mean read the book and get insights into what it takes to become financially independent?
Have you read the book? Or, what are your thoughts on personal finance? Do share your comments below.
Thank you in advance.
