A while ago I told someone that they cant talk assets with me if they haven’t read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad. That was another one of my tweets that went up in flames. I think I lost a twitter friend or two that day.
There is this amazing book that you may or may not have read but it changed my life. I consider this book the holy grail. That book is Rich Dad Poor Dad. Rich Dad (“RD”) is such a great book because it literally takes everything you believed and flips it upside down.
One of my favorite comparisons that the author, Robert Kiyosaki, makes is that Barack Obama is the poor dad and Mitt Romney or Donald Trump are rich dads. If you have read the book you will learn that this isn’t a knock on Obama it is merely a knock on how he thinks.
I bring this up because just last week we saw a post about Barack donating 2m to some city to create jobs. Then in another article I saw some rapper donated a similar amount of money to create tech jobs. All this is fine and dandy, if you want to be poor. The key is that a job will never give you financial freedom.
At the same time these stars are creating jobs, I read in the newspaper that a program in Orange County is teaching girls business. A local college created a program that is teaching 4th and 5th graders how to start and run businesses. As a result these people will be able to create value and wealth within their community.
This is the same disconnect we see with the Lavar Ball situation. People are mad because he pushed his son to become an owner in a world full of employees. I know Dame Dash is proud of the Ball family. I surely am.
The key is that business and investing are the true keys to financial success and generational wealth. Your kids cant inherit your education or your job but they can inherit your assets.
If you haven’t read the book Rich Dad, odds are you still operate within a paradigm of employee think. Everything that I say will likely conflict with the safety and security you have been sold by the mass media so it’s just a waste of time. I recommend you pick up a copy of that life changing book and come build with a legend. Email us now to join our investment club.
